what are your values?

this was a question tackled in my third coaching session in Time Line Therapy* and i'll start at the end... here is a short-list of what boiled down to be a few of "my values":

  • inspiration (surprise surprise!)

  • peace

  • action/forward movement

  • confidence

what is a "value" anyway? #wordnerd

"a persons principles or standards of behavior; ones judgement of what is

important and beneficial in life"

so how did i get to the list above?

it started with two intentional breaths - how i center and focus before diving deep within.

and then visualizing a time "when everything in my coaching/teaching life was is flow" ahhh... i could almost smell the cloud of copal (Mayan incense), feel the wooden slats under my feet, hear the Resplendent Quetzal (Guatemalan national bird) singing, see the sun rising over Lake Atitlan and over the beautiful souls opening their hearts to yoga, to life, to themselves as i guided them on their mats at the first retreat i hosted...

"what feelings or emotions were present in that scenario or moment?"


"what other feelings or emotions were present?"

joy. love. peace. contentment. etc etc etc. and then there it was...


it hit me like a kick to the head (pictured below 😉). so i took two more intentional breaths.

we dove deeper. uncovered more values. some came up again and again (see short-list above) until i had a solid understanding of what truly is most important for me as a listener, an intuitive, a coach & guide, a student of life.

then, the 'fun' part... "think of a time when your coaching/teaching was NOT in flow"

ugh. a situation from just a few months after returning from the blissful glory of Guatemala popped up immediately.

"what was NOT present in that situation?"



here is the deepest secret nobody knows

here is the root of the root...

what comes from my heart is truth. it is the source of my soul, my love, my values and everything that i value and hold close.

and as i continue to uncover my single source of truth, my heart continues to open and explore. i find true healing and peace and love and joy and pureness and contentment and CONFIDENCE and inspiration. and all i want to do is share it with you.

because here is the bud of the bud...

what comes from YOUR heart is truth. it is the source of YOUR soul, YOUR love, YOUR values and everything that YOU value and hold close.

and it's all within YOU. just waiting to burst forward and reach as high as the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart) **

*TimeLine Therapy is a modality that i am a student of, and in training to provide for YOU!

you know, just another one of those life-changing tools i am adding to my own healing journey; and my healing/coaching repertoire…

"Time Line Therapy® aims to clear feelings that sabotage success and happiness. As an advanced form of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), the technique works with the unconscious mind to release negative emotions such as anger, sadness, fear, anxiety, hurt, guilt and low self-esteem"
