TOPIC: The first steps in becoming your own best friend. What are your greatest challenges with any of these?

Making the best out of a very cold, dark, snow driven winter here at Enchanted Lake in Michigan.

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
— Buddha

Dear Soul Sister…..Once you break free of the bondage of your Socialized Self which is what lead you away from your Authentic Soul, you will know a freedom that will make you feel like you have wings and you will finally be free!! Hugs…… Dinah
“Remember, the entrance door to the sanctuary is inside you.”

Rumi ♥
Three books that I highly recommend for getting help and insight on how to break the spell of your Socialized Self are:

1 “Too Good For Her Own Good” by Claudia Bepko & Jo Ann Krestan

2 ” There Is Nothing Wrong With You” by Cheri Huber

3 “Soul Love” and the other book by Sanaya Roman for highly sensitive people

20 Ways To
Become Your Own Best Friend

Become your own Fairy Godmother in midlife. If not now….when? Give your self permission to:

It’s our Socialized Selves that try to convince us that we don’t deserve these things, that they are selfish, that we haven’t proven ourselves yet, that we could fail again.

It will use everything in it’s power to keep you in a place of suffering. How ironic that its intentions are good! It is trying to keep you safe. And even if you are suffering, it is safe because it is familiar.

Becoming our own best friend means learning how to communicate with this self sabotaging part of ourselves in loving, compassionate ways. That’s how we break the spell and fly free!!

1) Acknowledge your achievements.

2) Eat well, sleep well, and take care of your self physically.

3) Don’t engage in other people’s dramas. Ask yourself as Byron Katie suggests: “Is it my business, their business, or God’s business?

4) Follow your passions no matter where they take you.

5) Listen to your own inner voice.

6) Take time to get quiet, experience inner peace, and observe thoughts without judgment.

7) Release the need to blame self and others.

8) Instead of listening to the reprimanding, shoulding, guilting voice….listen to your heart instead.

9) Compliment others and notice good things about them, it will soften your judgments about your self.

10) Accept your self exactly how you are, where you are, what you are, who you are….YOU ARE ENOUGH JUST AS YOU ARE!!

11) Know your own limits. Don’t always be the one who takes on responsibilities, says yes automatically etc.

12) Make your self a priority.

13) Have fun and enjoy life…’s ok to do so.

14) Change your mind.

15) When requests are made of you, get in the habit of saying: ” I don’t know, let me get back to you on that, or no, I don’t want to do that.”

16) Take up time and space.

17) Interpret every choice and experience you have, no matter what it is, as contributing positively to your life because you make it so (no matter what anyone else’s interpretation may be!)

18) Trust yourself even when you make “mistakes” or don’t know what to do immediately, or don’t know the answers.

19) Allow people to be disappointed about your choices and decisions.

20) Break personal commitments or promises if to keep them would be more harmful to self or others, ultimately, than keeping them..

{Midlife Adventure Club} Monthly Call

Dear Midlife Adventure Club Women ~
Just about every woman goes through a set of challenging inner beliefs when it comes to acting on her own behalf.

How would you like to show up for yourself and act on your own behalf in 2014?
Is it in relationships? creative self expression? speaking up for yourself? taking some classes? training for a marathon? going out alone?

* Have you tried before and been disappointed?
* Does a small voice in your head always make you give up before you start?
* What happens when you try to take actions on your own behalf?

Partly because of my in depth training with Debbie Ford to become a shadow integration coach, I saw how midlife is the perfect time to break the bondage we experience from a part of ourselves (our Socialized Self). It holds us back and keeps us down because it doesn’t feel safe to show up for ourselves.

And because of my 5 year apprenticeship in Native American shamanism, I saw how this was an initiation into our wisdom years, how it was a very powerful, sacred and empowering passage into living from (our Authentic Soul.)

Becoming the free spirit that you long to be in midlife and beyond is the gift of this transformation. This is your Enchanted Land.

So let’s start talking about this via phone this month! I decided to begin holding the monthly (no cost) midlife adventure club calls again!! They WILL NOT be recorded.

You will be able to:
* listen from the comfort of your home
* share if you want and get coaching from me
* not feel alone with this anymore
* receive some valuable insights on how to move forward

WHEN?~ Tuesday January 14, 8:00 – 9:00 PM Eastern, 7:00 Central, 6:00 Mountain, and 5:00 Pacific.
