Change is possible.
It's what has kept humanity adapting, existing and evolving.
Change can feel elusive when we're stuck in hurtful patterns under the trauma and stress of modern existence.
We have the power to live in alignment and awareness. To live exuberantly, build constructive habits, attune with our purpose, and discover resilience.
Through self-responsibility, curiosity and self-compassion we can learn to find the awareness to guide ourselves again, care for our bodies, mind, community and beyond.
I came to Mindfulness-based Life Coaching via meditation.
Meditations hones Awareness.
Awareness is innate to us all but gets clouded by negative self-talk, arbitrary rules, unprocessed trauma, depression, obligations and many more influences over which we often feel little control or gave no permission to receive.
Our innate Awareness is what is meant when people say, "you have everything you need within you, you just have to uncover it."
That is to say, our true state, is one of connection, wisdom, kindness, resiliency, diplomacy, generosity, and gratitude.
The beauty of this all is that it means we have the capacity for self-empowerment.
Teachers can be guides but the true root of transformation sits within you, you just need the tools, and then you hone them.
