Community Connections

I can't believe how quickly the summer has gone by. School has started in most areas and football frenzy is in the air. 

I am not a huge sports fan yet it is hard to live in south Louisiana and not be aware that the Saints kick off their first preseason game Thursday night. Go  Saints! 

With the start of school and children of all ages getting focused, it seems like there is a collective wave of planning for the future and what's next in the air. That's what I have been updating the last couple of weeks.  For me, this check in helps me get back on track with my intentions, goals & dreams. As I sort through what worked and what didn't work, I am better able to let go, adjust and move on.

I invite you to do the same. 
Join me for the 6 month Next Step course that will support you in creating an intention and purpose filled life. Within the structure of this course, you will have ample time and practice as we introduce, develop, design and integrate skills that will have you become more connected in your relationships and more engaged, available and fulfilled in your life situations and circumstances. 

Scroll down to The Next Step section below for further details on this course. 

Also, check out the AHA section for a Community Connections gathering in Houma Aug. 22.

Awaken to Stillness

"In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you."
-Deepak Chopra

What do you feel as you look at the photo above?   My experience is calm, peace and stillness.

Do you have the ability to tap into a calm and peaceful place regardless of what is going on in your life?  Have you heard the saying, "It was so quiet, you could have heard a pin drop"?  That's the place I am talking about. What might be possible to hear from that place of calm, peaceful, serenity? That place for me is free of judgment, attachment and resistance.

I am going to suggest that you have a place in your internal world that is not only still, it is also where your authentic self and answers reside. Do you know that place?  I invite you to practice tapping into authentically knowing yourself. It is a journey you won't regret.

I know what it is like to not have to follow the many thoughts and judgments screaming for my attention.  I admit, it takes practice yet what I experience in the midst of all of it is refreshing, informative, insightful and energizing. You could say it is priceless to be able to unplug from the internal and external noise knowing I have all I need to tap into my internal wisdom, truth and heart.  That clarity allows me to more effectively be in the midst of any life situation and still trust I have all I need for whatever comes up.

When I forget to tap into my stillness prior to making a choice, it usually turns out that I chose from fear, anxiety or some attachment to an outcome.  Looking back, the choices that worked more often than not came from stillness and my heart.  When I trust me, I am not driven by the external chaos and chatter. My choices are in alignment with what is true for me.

Where do your choices come from? Are they based in the automatic fear, reaction and anxiety or are they based on your heartfelt truth and authentically knowing what is best for you in any situation.

I would love to hear what you experience as you practice tapping into your stillness and making choices free of judgment, attachment and resistance.

I've had individual coaching sessions and various workshops with Denise and though the titles might have changed the intense learning that takes place within has not. Denise has a special gift for uncovering the "layers" that we bring to these workshops and guides us to the true, authentic being that we all strive for. She accomplishes this in a genuine, loving manner that makes everyone feel safe and secure.

At the crossroads of retirement and wondering what is next for me, both Female and Fabulous and the Next Step courses granted me the peace and excitement of exploring , a knowing  trust and guidance to be the wonder that I am.
