The (real) Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

I sat in the dark theater trying my best not to do the ugly cry, but I couldn’t help it. So with my black mascara running, bottom lip quivering, and snot dripping down my nose, I watched the final moments of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

If you haven’t seen it, it’s about two lovers (impeccably played by Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey) who go to extreme lengths to forget about one another after breaking up. After finding out Clementine (Kate Winslet) had the memories of their relationship erased Joel (Jim Carrey) decides to do the same.

Revisiting this movie made me think about the great lengths we go to to forget our hurt, pain, anger, sadness and shame. While these characters used a futuristic procedure to forget most of us try to erase the past through numbing ourselves with food, entertainment, alcohol, sex, drugs and toxic relationships and behaviors.

However, no matter how hard we try to get away from the pain, it seems to always find us again.

But what if I told you there was a way to wipe the slate clean and start over?

3 Money Beliefs That Keep You From The Wealth You Deserve

“The money just isn’t flowing. I feel like there’s a block, but I don’t know what it is.”

I could feel my friend’s frustration and saw the fire in her eyes as we chatted.

The “more” she desired wasn’t really about a dollar amount, but the freedom that financial abundance brings. I listened intently as she continued to share what was going on with her financially. When she asked for my advice, I took a deep breath and said, “I needed to sit with this.”

After a few days, of meditating, doing shadow work, and reflecting on money in between diaper duty and feedings this is what came to me.

We are all living out our own personal money story. After years of verbalizing these stories to ourselves and others, these stories became deeply ingrained money beliefs that either limits us or free us. Furthermore, these wounds around money prevent us from being of service in the world at our highest level. Once we free ourselves from the energetic binds of lack, limitation and fear around money we will be able to use our gifts to positively effect the world.

Just imagine the time and space you’d have if you didn’t worry about money.

What would you create?

What change could you effect?

Who would you inspire?

Chances are you’d regain your presence, your peace of mind and be more on purpose than ever before.

Instead, most of us are weighed down by money beliefs like:

8 Surprising Signs You Need A Coach

Over the years, I’ve met many women and men with big dreams and big visions who’ve spent years going around in circles. They’re caught in a cycle sometimes conscious, sometimes unconscious of self-sabotage, fear, and patterns and/or behaviors that derail their best intentions.

Sometimes the cycle is more subtle, but the end result is the same:

They aren’t living the life they truly want.

When appropriate I’ve suggested to some of these individuals that they hire a coach.

For many of them it was just the lightbulb moment they needed. There were a few who had considered it in the past, but the vast majority of people I’ve encountered didn’t realize they even needed a coach or that it was an option for the challenges they were facing.

And I get it.

Unless you grew up with parents who not only instilled the importance of getting support but also mirrored it for you, many of us, go at it alone in life.

I went at it alone for a long time simply because I didn’t know there was another way. When I first started working with coaches it was a leap of faith and I didn’t know what to expect.

However, I can say working with coaches has changed both my life and business. Simply put, I wouldn’t be where I am today without the love, support and accountability of my amazing coaches and mentors.
