64: Becoming the CEO of Your Life Part 1 of 5: Meet Your Protector

64: Becoming the CEO of Your Life Part 1 of 5: Meet Your Protector

Are you ready? 

I am thrilled to share this series with you! This “CEO of Your Life” topic has been over a year and a half in the making for me. I had it before I found my empty nest niche! This podcast and working with clients has allowed it to brew up over time – talk about a simmer!

I will be sharing this concept with you, in small bites, over the next few months.

I expect a few things about this will change over time, as I’m finding that as I prepare the scripts, verbalize concepts, and share these concepts with clients, I develop nuances, memory tactics, and more. 

So much fun! 

In all honesty, it is a bit unsettling to put it out there. At the same time,  had I not started the podcast, I wouldn’t be here today, so this leads me to share more with you now than feels comfortable, knowing that for each level of imperfection and discomfort put out in the world, the more clarity I have in my purpose. 

Thank you for joining me on this journey. 

In this episode, I introduce you to the idea of your protector. 

Protector is like the security guard for your house. Protector arrived in my imagery as I read through The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle and began to form as I thought through how I envisioned my Ego. So, hopefully, it will help you to understand the Ego better (although I’m not sure it is precisely the way Eckhart would see it) it resonates with me and has been resonating with my clients with whom I have shared.

58: Fish Tank Empowerment

58: Fish Tank Empowerment

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend!
 
In this episode, I introduce you to a concept/analogy that came to me as I drove home from She Podcasts Live — conceived in my effort to keep the momentum from the conference going for days, weeks, and months ahead. 
 
I utilized my long car ride homeward to work through the struggle that I knew had the potential to remain in my life had I not processed it in this way. I share this with you with love and hope you find the motivation and inspiration that I found in it the next time you experience an event in your life like this.
 

When you honor who you are, the universe responds.

I am living this now. It is three months out from the conference, and this analogy continues to serve me well. I am savoring the simmer as I return to the giant fish tank.
