I started working on a new offering entitled Out of Overwhelm. Out of Overwhelm is filled with strategies to help you heal and make friends with overwhelming parts of your subconscious mind. Those parts that can be remuneration when in overwhelm.
The strategies within Out of Overwhelm can get you grounded and into a daily healing practice just right for you that you create for your highest and best!
Here’s a preview of the Out of Overwhelm Mini Course offering coming soon.
Daily Compliment Practice: A sweet, loving compliment. Could it be that simple?
I remember beating myself up around my inability to problem-solve through the time immediately after my mom’s death. After the shock of her death, the wake and funeral it hit my mind, body and soul like a tsunami. The denial and repression of grief finally had its cork popped and the numbness took over and I was in a daze. To make this overwhelm even worst, my ex husband had me served with a contempt filing for “impeding his parenting time during the week of my mom’s wake and funeral services” so I was faced with a court appearance to defend myself.
My internal dialogue was creating more and more chaos and in order to come back to peace I began complimenting myself, well, complimenting my inner child who was dealing with adbandment, trauma, loss and abuse, with the softness and care of how you would parent a baby or child, your own or otherwise.
Daily compliment consist of the sweetness of self kindness through words that provide nurturing and reassurance.
Each and every day I would give myself one compliment. Here are some examples of my daily compliments:
- You’re doing the best you can right now.
- That’s right! Keep going. One day at a time. You’re doing great.
- Be right here with your mind, body and soul. That’s it! Be right here. Just like that, hold this moment.
- You’re so strong.
- You’re amazing.
- You’re kind.
I use this strategy of a daily dose of self compliment within my coaching practice and here’s what some of my clients have to say!
“I really didn’t want to do this exercise, but with Kristen’s encouragement, slowly each and every day I began to look forward to writing down my compliment. Funny thing is, I noticed I used my self compliment on others too.”
“I wanted to let you know I did my self compliments for a whole week now…. And I can feel the internal difference”. (Even though I didn’t want to do this your accountability made me move to self-love.)
Self compliment strategy ripples out from your heart chakra out to the others in your life, creating kindness and appreciation of self and your soul group!
You can decrease your overwhelm in just 7 short days by introducing the practice of daily complimenting. Try it and be aware of how your inner conversation changes your outer view.
Out of Overwhelm is coming this spring. Stay tuned!
