Why shifts are gifts

by | Aug 13, 2018 | Podcasts

Sometimes we feel ourselves shifting.

Shifting in our perspective, our priorities, or our desires. Shifts can sneak up on us when we least expect it, out of the blue, completely and unpredictably.

At times, shifts can be fantastic life-changing events… but shifts also can be jarring. Surprising, unnerving, and overwhelming.

I first wrote about shifts as gifts several years ago as I was starting my health coaching journey. I wrote an article that was published in MindBodyGreen WAY before the popular health and wellness website founded by CEO Jason Wachob got so big and exploded onto the scene.

In that article I talked about how sometimes, before it happens, we almost can sense that a shift is coming.

Our inner knowing tells us something is percolating. We start to notice that our outlook is subtly different than it was yesterday.

It is as if one day the doorway to our thoughts became cracked and a ray of sunlight shines through. A part of us is drawn to that bright light, and suddenly the door opens a bit more, then a bit more, and then a bit more, until we open our eyes and realize that we are standing in a doorway soaked in sunshine with a brand new perspective about life and happiness.

But sometimes shifts can feel scary. Even crappy. What about then? How do we find the gifts in those gifts?

In this week’s podcast episode I talk about how I find the gifts and some ways that might resonate with you.

Listen to Episode 26 on iTunes HERE to hear about when shifts happen in biz and in life – and how to find the gifts in the shifts.

In this 20-minute episode, you’ll learn:

  • How to sense that shifts are coming
  • Why you can’t un-shift a shift   
  • Whether the Law of Attraction” draw us to certain shifts
  • Why there’s room for logic AND spirituality
  • What the concept of pivoting is   
  • The 5 things you should say goodbye to
  • How embracing shifts can create clarity and align with the root chakra   

There’s no Tip Sheet for this episode so just sit back, tune in to your own energy, maybe grab your journal and jot down a few thoughts as we go, and enjoy the show.

Over the years, I have learned that we can run, but we can’t hide, from shifts. No one is exempt from shift magic.

So, let’s all remember to buckle up and get ready. Watch out ahead because shifts are coming your way. And there are many, many, many gifts in those shifts.
