To master the game of life, you need a growth mindset.
In the past 12 years of client work, I (Val) discovered that most of us wear 'blinders' in how we approach our health and life in general.
Instead of learning and implementing best practices, we continue the same habits acquired from family, peers, and 'authority figures'. Therefore, we continue to get about the same results.
Albert Einstein said, The current problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which they were created.
The bottom line of your success hinges on winning your inner game, what goes on between your two ears. You have to consistently following through with your chosen action steps once you are clear on what you want. The problem is - this is where we often meet with resistance. Because the brain dislikes change, it evokes thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations that cause procrastination, excuses, 'forgetting', etc. It feels like we are downright sabotaging ourselves.
Val is skilled using a variety of processes that can help you move through fear and resistance and gain new perspectives. These processes incorporate easily into your coaching sessions when needed.
Here's a real life example. One of my clients sought my help after realizing that she 'lost herself'. She felt like her life was on hold for years as she mourned the loss of her daughter and fretted over the future of her grandchildren. As she awakened to the reality that she was stuck, and her life was slipping by, she decided, "Now it's time for me, it's all about me." She felt conflicted about this. During a visualization process, she realized that when she took care of herself and embraced life fully on her own terms, she brimmed over with plenty of herself to give to others as well.
If you are tired of struggling, making small gains, and wasted efforts, it's time to change your game. A change of strategy can help you achieve results with greater ease and speed. Strategy is your overall plan for achieving your goal, or winning your game.
Val's mentoring and coaching focuses on practical, doable strategies that help you create the results you are looking for.
Here is an example from my own life. I used to feel a lot of resentment about situations in my past. I 'stewed' and held a grudge. Of course, this spilled over into all my relationships and life patterns. This unhealthy pattern, or 'strategy' of reliving the past created an environment of negativity within and around me. Not what I wanted.
That began to change as I took action using an energy healing strategy for releasing troublesome feelings. Ultimately, my life and relationships transformed. Yes, there were bumps and challenges along the way, but I learned valuable skills, strategies, and habits that ultimately helped me heal those memories and 'win my game'.
Most of us benefit greatly when supported in our quest for a healthy, happy life. Even though support can make the difference between success and failure, it is often a key we attempt to do without. That is often a mistake.
As your mentor and coach, Val will provide you the support you need as you play for your dreams.
This support comes in many forms. Here are a few examples:
When you have a healthy body, a clear mind, and a felt connection to your soul or spirit, you are empowered move toward fulfilling your life purpose and manifesting your heart's desires.
Integration of mind body spirit is a well-known concept in the holistic wellness movement. It's the foundation of our approach to living and enjoying a healthy life. Although there are other levels of integration, this one is important in how you approach the goals in your wellness and life game.
This integration consists of three attributes:
When you create with an integrated mind, body and spirit working together as one, you experience flow. Making and following through with decisions is easier and more enjoyable. You deepen your sense of inner awareness and learn to tap into your connection with your heart, or spirit.
When these attributes are out of balance, you may feel stuck, overwhelmed, and confused. But in this space of integrated flow you find and gain the wisdom, strength, love, and peace that is already within you.
