You might not see the connection between inner confidence and physical health. What I’ve seen is that a low level of inner confidence impacts the immune system, wearing it down due to the emotional wear and tear of a sensitive soul. When you set clear boundaries by using your voice and taking action when needed, accept all parts of yourself, and take full responsibility for your well-being, you are standing in your personal power. That leads to a healthy inner confidence. The body magically reflects your inner power by feeling energetic and strong. Continue reading
Knowing yourself and what’s important to you is a key component in building inner confidence. How? Continue reading
How interesting it was for me to watch the Oscars on Sunday night. I noticed what reflected my values – and what didn’t. Continue reading
Eckhart Tolle talks about the pain-body; in coaching terminology, we call it the Gremlin. His description in “A New Earth” of the pain-body that resides in all of us is powerful and worthy of reading. Continue reading

I notice that when I feel disconnected from my significant other (males and females have different ways of communicating) or I’m feeling ungrounded and upset about a challenge, trying to fix the issue or disconnect doesn’t work.

The Karpman’s Triangle, a classic and most helpful visual, demonstrates what it looks like when we come from either a superior or inferior role. It is made up of an inverted triangle with Persecutor at the top left hand point, Rescuer at the top right hand point and Victim at the bottom point.
