Inspiration | Coach

By: Coach Isabelle  09-12-2011

This is going to be one of those “small and crappy” posts – typos and all – as inspiration just hit (and baby Beni is happily bouncing around in his saucer…for now).

I think I’ve already written about finding daily inspiration in a randomly opened book, and that is what I just did 5 minutes ago. I felt drawn to a book I’ve owned for over a year but never cracked open. One of those would-be nice-to read-one-day books that often become forgotten as new and exciting books are added to my collection (I don’t own many pairs of shoes…oh, but if I had the space to house a library – the joy!).

I was instantly rewarded with these two passages:

“Dance opens the eyes on our skin. When we don’t dance, part of us dies. We lose our instincts, our physical magic. Dance keeps us open to the hidden instruments, the subtle sounds that seek our expression from the other side…When your visionary ability feels hampered, dance yourself back to life…Put on a good song and let it happen.”

What would be that good song for you?

“When you move at a primitive speed, you experience more of life.” This followed a great story about the author deciding to walk 10 blocks to the post office instead of driving one day, and running into an old friend he hadn’t seen in a long time. During their conversation, this friend taught him much needed guitar chords that helped his song writing blossom. In this section, he author writes about how to develop mindfulness and tap into the psyche while driving…to improve not only your psychic potential, but even your driving!

It reminded me of how synchronicity and random conversations with strangers were a regular thing in my life when I lived in the city and walked everywhere. When I slowed down and let myself see the world, and the quirky but beautiful people who spice it up.

In case you’re curious, these passages come from Psychic Living: Tap into Your Psychic Potential, by Andrei Ridgeway.

Change | Coach

It’s no surprise, consequently, that when I attempt to create change in my life, I often get off to a strong procrastinating start, thinking “I just don’t have the time, money, energy to deal with the struggle of changing”. The daily news, Hollywood, cheesy and far-from-reality-shows…Oh, and that doesn’t even include family drama, which tends to account for the bigger chunk of our drama pie. It implies that change is boring, tedious…Not fun.


Small Steps | Coach

As my little sweetpea blessed me with a few moments of down time today (yes, his naps are that short!), I thought to myself: “Uhm, what do I do with myself now?!. If you’re into creative expression, what simple movement – or series of – reflects where you’re at right now, this instant. What is a very small thing I can do in very little time to experience meaning and well being, r i g h t n o w.


Workshops / Events | Coach

With so much daily pressure to perform, and to measure up to impossible or boring standards, I was in the mood to create an opportunity for us to lighten up, reconnect with our essence, and to have fun with it. Leave your monkey mind aside and delve into free, easy creation – creation that makes you feel WHOLE and reminds you how alive you are. The purpose of this fun workshop is simple: JOYFUL “Because-I-Feel-Like-It” CREATION.


YES to Me! | Coach

After all, if most of us are striving for personal balance in our lives, what better way to achieve this than to counterbalance all the negativity we are bombarded with on a daily basis: on the news; radio; outbreak scares, and an implicit belief that it’s pompous to toot your horn.


Do it NOW | Coach

Whenever I notice myself avoiding or resisting acting on something I actually want to do, I pay close attention to my excuses or even valid reasons for why I just can’t start now: feeling too unexperienced, knowledgeable or equipped; not knowing where to start; perfectionism, etc. Do you ever find yourself suddenly doing the dishes, tidying up or pretty much anything BUT work on a desirable goal once you’ve decided to create change in your life.


Uncategorized | Coach

Get a hold of either a Bristol board, magnetic board or a large blank painting canvas – whatever inspires you most and can be put up for you to observe on a regular basis. Also called a Vision Board or Treasure Map, A Dream Board is basically a collage or other form of visual representation of your goals and dreams. Colorful images that make you feel fantastic or get you thinking about what life could be like if it were you in that picture.
