    EPISODE 1851: Lessons In The Pain

    EPISODE 1851: Lessons In The Pain

    Today's S.O.L. STORY comes from my most recent experience of pain. Whether your pain is physical, mental, spiritual, and/or emotional, this message will help you.
    The number one lesson is this: Pain is not your problem.
    Seriously, pain is not the problem.
    The CAUSE of the pain IS the problem.
    Look for it. Discover it.
    Are you so busy that you’re forgetting to take care of yourself?
    Yes, I understand. It happened to me too, but…if we don’t take time TODAY, tomorrow we’ll deal with the consequences. It’ll take MORE time, and be far more painful.
    Remember, you’re not only what you eat BUT…you’re also what’s eating you.

    Be willing to look past the pain, and discover the cause.
    All drugs, whether we like it or not, cause side effects.
    There’s a consequence to every single thing we think, feel, and do.
    I wasn’t suffering from a migraine because I was lacking a pain reliever. I was having a migraine because of specific reasons. There WAS a cause.
    If you’re experiencing any type of pain, it’s VITAL for you to discover the cause. Not merely mask the symptoms of the problem.
    Uncover and discover the cause of your symptoms.
    Don’t simply mask pain, or try to run from the pain or problem.
    Pursue the pain in your life. Find out where it’s coming from.
    Uncover and discover the cause of it. Stop trying to run from it. Stop backing away from the pain or symptom.
    Lean into it, my dear.
    Look at it — eye to eye, face to face, heart to heart— and figure out what’s behind it.
    There are lessons in your pain. I promise. What are they?
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage with yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:
    Write down where you’re hurting — experiencing mental, physical, spiritual, and/or emotional pain.
    Take a look at it. Begin to identify the cause of the pain. Seek professional help, if needed.
    When you correct the cause you can experience healing at such a deep level.
    From above, down, inside, and out.

    EPISODE 1850: Prioritize Yourself

    EPISODE 1850: Prioritize Yourself

    Feeling lonely in your relationship? Wishing he (or she) would make you a priority? I understand, I felt this way for years…it was awful! 
    Here’s what I’ve learned about the key to PRIORITY, especially in relationships.
    If you’re doing this, I have a question for you…
    How’s that working for you?
    Today’s S.O.L. STORY was inspired by my own struggle with this powerful thing called “priority.”
    I learned the hard way that priority starts with ME.
    And it starts with YOU.
    First you must ask yourself, “Self, am I emotionally unavailable?”
    Second, “Am I ready for an “affair” with my heart and soul?”
    Third, “Am I a priority in my own life?”
    These 3 questions changed my life and they can change yours too.
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:  
    Are you emotionally unavailable?
    Are you ready for an “affair” with your heart and soul?
    Are you a priority in your own life?
    Ask your heart and journal what comes up for you.

    EPISODE 1849: ILLusion Creates Dis-ease

    EPISODE 1849: ILLusion Creates Dis-ease

    Illusion is a false idea or belief. What if you have false unconscious beliefs? Don’t worry, today I’ll share a technique that will help restore EASE back into your life.
    ILLusion starts with ILL for a reason.
    Today’s S.O.L. STORY is inspired by the conversation we’ve been having about fear.
    I’ve been sharing my own recent experience with fear, and choosing to redefine her as “Here” and “Dear.”
    When I started to really look at fear from the WHOLE 360 degree perspective, I see how much fear has caused unnecessary pressure in my life.
    It was one of those AHA moments, when I realized…
    Wow, pressure is an illusion.
    It’s kinda like how I see “control.”
    Control is also an illusion.
    So much of what we see or attempt to be is an illusion.
    So how is pressure an illusion?
    Pressure, as well as stress, is based on our perceptions or beliefs.
    So what if we simply redefined pressure and saw it another way?
    Look at the word, PRESSURE.
    It’s “press” “sure.”
    What if we simply pressed into “sure” the next time we felt pressure?
    Sure is another way of saying, “certainty.”
    So when we feel pressure, perhaps what we need to press into is what we are certain and sure about.
    Make sense?
    So we ask ourselves, “What do I know right now? What is TRUE?”
    And start with that.
    What’s true.
    What’s certain.
    Because certainty allows us to take action with ease, versus dis-ease.
    Any time we start will ILL…it’s going to rob us of EASE.
    So why not start with SURE and create the EASE we desire?
    Truth is the only way to true health and WELLTH.
    And this, my dear, is the TRUTH.
    “A trustworthy messenger brings healing.”
    Trustworthy = certain, sure, reliable.
    Are you ready to move from ILLusion to TRUTH and begin living in EASE?
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:  
    Where in your life are you living an illusion?
    What do you believe that simply is NOT true?
    Are you willing to “try on” a new belief?
    One that brings you into truth, ease, certainty, and being absolutely SURE…
    YAY!!
    Journal about what TRUTH shows you.

    EPISODE 1848: What I Discovered IN THERE…Part 2

    EPISODE 1848: What I Discovered IN THERE…Part 2

    I’ve redefined fear, and here’s what I’m calling her…
    Here are 4 things I’ve discovered about fear:
    1. It requires a new way to breathe.
    I’ve stopped holding my breath. Instead, I inspire.
    2. It requires a new way to be.
    To be here.
    I tell myself, “I’m here.”
    3. It requires a new way to see.
    What would I look like if I wasn’t afraid to fully be seen?
    4. It IS me.
    That’s right, fear isn’t outside of me.
    And guess what?
    She’s not outside of you either.
    She is YOU too.
    So this is what I now choose to call fear.
    I call her “Here.”
    That’s right, I’m committed to no longer putting her “out there.”
    She is Here, but I AM also here.
    AND...
    I call her “Dear.”
    I invite her to let me know how she feels, then I keep moving on with what I’m doing, feeling, and healing.
    That’s it.
    She feels scared.
    She simply hasn’t made her full metamorphosis to SACRED.
    Yet…
    But she is becoming.
    And so can your Dear, who once called Fear.

    EPISODE 1847: What I Discovered IN THERE…Part 1

    EPISODE 1847: What I Discovered IN THERE…Part 1

    I’ve rediscovered fear, and here’s what I see…The Metamorphosis.
    Today’s S.O.L. STORY is a continuation of the conversation we’ve been having about going all out…all in…discovering…fear…scared…sacred…
    I call it “The Metamorphosis…”
    It’s a natural process, although it doesn’t feel natural.
    However, it is. In fact, it’s SUPER NATURAL.
    And it’s as natural as breathing. But it takes daily practice.
    The only way to get great at something is to put in the reps, the time, the attention.
    The practice.
    Knowing this has got me thinking about how each day I have an opportunity to get real.
    Real great at living today.
    And of course, God knew it was going to take more than one try. So I’ve been given a lot of “at bats” to practice becoming great at my day.
    Given this, I believe we were never expected to be GREAT at living life.
    Instead, we become great at what we’ve been given to practice. Every. Single. Day.
    So as we become great at today. We have the opportunity to practice the art of living it for a lifetime.
    Because we become great at living TODAY.
    Isn’t that lovely?
    No pressure.
    Only today.
    We don’t have to be great at life. We’ve only been given the opportunity to become great at living and loving today.
    The one thing that I’ve noticed keeps me from doing both WELL every day, is FEAR.
    So I’ve decided that I’m going to love fear like never before, because as long as I do, fear won’t scare me anymore.
    Because we all know that life comes and goes quickly. We show up. We live. We transform. We transition.
    That’s it.
    Fear didn’t create the beginning or the ending. It simply travels with us along the way.
    To allow anything or anyone…especially a feeling…to keep me from doing this or that is no longer something I choose.
    NO WAY. Not in my today and lifetime.
    Who am I to think of or talk to fear like this?
    I am who I say I AM.
    And today I say I AM.
    When you know the way it ends, everything leading up to it is simply an experience.
    A moment. It doesn’t change the FINALE.
    It only changes the way in which I get there.
    I choose to get there on a road paved with love, creation, hope, inspiration, and SACRED tales of the adventurous, romantic journey.
    Who am I?
    I am who I say I am.
    I am free. To be. ME.
    And I am not going to stop ME from that incredible sacred experience.
    Fear or no fear. I am here.
    It’s simple.
    It’s a decision.
    Fear has kept me from truly seeing me.
    From truly being me.
    From fully engaging with, and expressing, me.
    From rising up and exploring me like never before.
    From experiencing me. Love. Life. In an unrecognizable way.
    Only because I hadn’t quite fully recognized THE WAY. MY WAY. TODAY.
    WOW. Thank you God. Thank you Shannon. Thank you LOVE. Thank you life.
    I’m redefining fear as dear, and I’m going with her.
    Perhaps I’ll also grow with her…
    Fear gave me an image of myself.
    It gave me a way in which I see — a way in which I imagine.
    But what IF that image isn’t the WHOLE STORY?
    What if there’s something still yet to be revealed?
    The only way I’ll know is to go.
    Keep going.
    Growing.
    Flowing.
    Knowing.
    I invite you to join me...
    Feeling. Healing. Hoping. Inspiring. Loving. Living. Sharing. Together.
    That’s all.
    Healing and loving it ALL.
    I dare you to see ALL OF YOU.
    Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)
    TODAY’S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:  
    Where are YOU still hiding, my dear?
    Talk to fear today, and journal what she shares with you.
    Talk to me. I’d love to know…
    Then tune-in tomorrow for Part 2 of “What I Discovered IN THERE…”
    I can't wait to hear what happens for you...
