How to Craft a Vision for 2022 with Self-Compassion & Ease
We have officially entered 2022, but just because the date on the calendar has changed, doesn't mean that the circumstances of our lives will immediately shift or change for the better.
There can be so much hype around new-year goal setting and planning. While I personally love to reflect, vision and plan, I've also found that it's critical to be patient, gentle and loving in the process. Otherwise, we run the risk of yet another opportunity to set ourselves up to lose confidence, self-trust and efficacy when it comes to our most important dreams and goals.
In this audio, I walk you through many of the core steps I use to reflect, dream and plan for the upcoming year. You will learn:
Some simple, yet powerful questions to ask yourself as you review the past year and everything that has transpired.How to consciously release, complete and close 2021 if you haven't done so already.How to give yourself creative permission to brainstorm, dream and envision life for the new year, even if you end up choosing NOT to pursue certain things.Effective ways to simplify, reduce overwhelm and hone in on the few most important things you want to actively focus on in the new year.How to set yourself up for success throughout the year to re-visit your goals and dreams so that they don't end up collecting dust and leading to disappointment down the road.Enjoy and may you have a gentle and easeful start to 2022!

Part 2: How to Create a Conscious Ending
Last week I sent out a podcast all about how to create conscious endings because it is something I have been thinking a lot about personally and I hoped it would be of value--what I didn't realize was just how much this would resonate with so many of you!
From all of your emails and messages (thank you!) I can tell we struck a chord on this whole conscious endings theme, so this week I decided to dig a bit deeper into the subject and make a part 2 of how to create a conscious ending.
In this week's episode I cover:
How to identify and acknowledge our default patterning around endings.The most common forces that influence how we tend to do endings. How to assess whether or not our style of endings is working for us (or not).How to evolve or change the way that we do endings so that we can experience more wholeness, completion and freedom.Reframing the concept of "finishing strong" and how to end things in a way that supports growth and healing as opposed to a way that recapitulates trauma and pain.7 reflection questions you can use to create more satisfying and conscious endings.I love knowing how these conversations are impacting you so keep those emails coming and if you're inspired, forward this podcast to a friend who you know is dealing with an ending right now...
Let's keep finding our resonance and remembering that we are not alone.
This is amazing!
These are conversations that matter…that dive us into the wide range of our human hearts and experience…a place to get real with ourselves…our grief, our rage, our love and let it inspire us into generative, compassionate, conscious action.
Thank you Emma!!
