LOVE

Welcome to December, our month of Love.

Image 1

In this newsletter, I took some excerpts form a newsletter I wrote a few years back.

To practice being loving is a gift from the heart to the world.

In Fearless Living we practice through acknowledgements, gratitudes and taking risks to get past our fears and take care of ourselves and others.

Ask yourself this month what is your definition of love. Is it the same in all areas of your life, or does it look different in work, play, intimacy and friendships?

As 2017 comes to an end, write down 100 acknowledgements of yourself this year. If 100 is overwhelming how about 25 or 30?

A lot of us focus on all the things we didn’t get around to doing this year. I want you to write down what you did do.

What you accomplished. Who you met. Who you loved. Who you helped. Who you said good bye to. What risks you took outside your comfort zone.

Did you allow yourself to cry? To be loved? To admit you were wrong?

It will surprise you, once you get started how your list will grow.

As December arrives and the year winds down, make room in your heart for Love.

Love for yourself and others.

And while your heart makes room for all that love, ask yourself a few questions.

*What do you know to be true about your heart?

*What have you been saying yes to?

*Do you know you are enough?

*Do you believe you count too?

*What are you afraid of if you begin to love?

*What is possible for you in 2018?

PASSION

IMG_6937

Welcome to November our month of Passion!

What do you think of when you think of the word Passion?

Some people say they wish they had something they were passionate about.

I always envied people who found their passion and were brave enough to go for it!

Other people are afraid of their passion, because being passionate in life makes you fully alive and totally in the present moment with yourself… this can be daunting for some!

Lets explore this month what we are passionate about in life.

Even though there is so much suffering and turmoil in the world, I believe there is always room for passion.

Find a quiet spot and sit with yourself and ask yourself what brings you joy? What do you love that when you are engaged in it, you loose all track of time and you actually get distracted from everything else!

In Fearless Living we begin to trust ourselves more and more and we start to live fully in who we are. We live on purpose and with passion. In doing this we grow in self acceptance and actually enjoy being ourselves.

When we jump into our passion and live our lives fully we start to take risks as a part of our everyday existence. We are not afraid to grow and change.

Rhonda Britten says; passion is the motivation, the spark behind your purpose. Passion takes away the sense of obligation and puts play and fun into your life!

We begin to own our own power, and by doing this we can add to the world with our Freedom instead of hiding from it with our Fear.

TRUST

IMG_0841 (1)Welcome to our month of Trust!

October is upon us! I hope you trust all is well in your life.

The world has been unstable at best, but as we continue to lead a Fearless Life we can trust that we are right where we are suppose to be. As we trust we can be of service to ourselves and others.

When we settle into trusting ourselves, we begin to walk with our backs a little straighter, our eyes a little brighter and hand in hand with our integrity. We have a smoother go of it.

We begin to resist less and feel more confident in our decision making. We have an inner knowing that everything is working out as it should, or as God may have planned for us if you believe in a higher power.

In Fearless Living we begin to trust our intuition and to question ourselves less. We may fall into the path of Self Acceptance, and acceptance to the reality of whats going on around us.

I notice when I am trusting, I don’t have such a need to blame everyone or everything around me for whats going astray. I trust as I let go and let God, things will unfold as good and powerful.

When I practice trusting, I like to believe that everything is working out just right for me, whether you agree or not, whether you believe the same or not. It works out fine for me.

This month, I invite you to explore listening to your intuition. Listen to your heart. Trust that you know what’s best for you.

Trust yourself as you let go of things or habits, OR people that don’t serve you in your life, that a new Fearless You will begin to show up.

If you would like support in helping you find ways to begin to Trust, or am excited to dive deeper into Fearless Living through coaching or book group,  contact Maureen at

INTENTION

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWelcome to our month of Intention!
September is a good time to revisit your Intention for living a Fearless Life.

Here in the United States all the summer fun is slowly winding down and the autumn days are just around the corner whispering to us: “Do you know where your sweaters are?” I celebrated my birthday at the end of August and it has always been a special time of year for me. September used to mean school starting, the town pool closed for the year and all the leaves started falling off the trees, so no more sitting in the shade writing letters to my camp friends far away…
Today as I live my life Fearlessly, September has a whole new meaning. In Fearless Living it is the month of Intention! Creating an Intention in our lives gives us a sense of knowing where we are going, where we want to be and how we want to show up in life! My Intention that I live by today is to be willing to stay present with myself and to explore self acceptance in all that I am and do.
An Intention helps us navigate our journey. I remain in integrity to my values and to my very soul when I live by Intention. Life just doesn’t happen TO me. I live on purpose and with responsibility for my choices and my actions. I am accountable to myself and others.
Are you willing to create an Intention for yourself to live by?
If you said; “Yes I am!” Congratulations! Lets get started!
Before we create our Intention, let’s take a look at EXPECTATIONS.
I know everyone has expectations in life. Whether it is an expectation of how things Should be, or how someone Should behave or how We expect ourselves to behave. In Fearless Living Rhonda Britten says: “Expectations are what you think ought to happen as a result of what you do, say, think or plan.”
Can you think of some expectations you may have?
Turning Expectations into Intentions
When we turn our expectations into Intentions we open up a whole new world of freedom for ourselves. We begin to live on purpose, in integrity and become proactive in our lives. Begin your intention with “I am willing to…… or I am willing to explore…….
Here is a quick example.
Expectation:  I Should loose 40 pounds before my daughters’ wedding.
This expectation can set you up for disappointment if you Don’t loose 40 pounds.

Intention:  I am willing to explore ways to live a healthy life style.
The Intention allows you the freedom to listen to your desires and choices. Your intuition may play a part also in your choices of exploring a healthy life style.

Creating Intention for our lives gives us purpose and direction.
If you would like more support on creating an Intention or if you are interested in diving deeper into Fearless Living through coaching or book groups via teleclasses please email me at fearlessjourneycoachmaureen@gmail.com  for a free 30 minute consultation.

Enjoy your Journey,

Awareness

Fearless Principle for January: AWARENESS

Awareness is a first step in finding what you would like change in your journey, or allowing yourself to be where you are and be okay with it.

As January winds down, I want you to continue checking in with yourself. Be HONEST! Look at reality for a few moments…. I once was told I had to face reality! That was hard for me! I was always caught up in optimism, fixing, saving, that I wasn’t able to comfortably face what was really going on. Once I became aware of my own reality, which is my own feelings, my dreams, my passions and took a look at what was going on around me, I was able to start my Fearless Journey on my own path.

Relax and grab your journal and perhaps a cup of tea and start writing down what you become aware of. Awareness is just looking at and looking around…. Right now you do not have to “do” anything. Just check in.

Here are a few questions you can ponder..

What is really going on in your life right now?

What are you content with and what would you like to change or explore?

What do you want to focus on this year? Pick one or 2 areas of your life to focus on or change.

What changes do you want to see?

Are you seeing the Reality in your own life?

If you are hanging on to things that you would like to release or change, ask yourself what the cost is of keeping these things or behaviors around… What are the benefits?

Next month we will look at the Fearless Principle of Willingness…

Until then,

Your Life Coach Maureen

Welcome to 2015!

Welcome back to my Fearless Journey Life Coach notepad! Here we are, just about through January! It’s 2015 and a new blank book to fill the pages with your life! How exciting to have a fresh clean page. Are you ready to join me in supporting YOU in your journey of discovering your possibilities in living a healthy and satisfying life? Fear tells some of us: “You can’t fill this book of life with anything wonderful, joyful and new, because you aren’t good enough, smart enough, loving enough, good looking enough, not rich enough.” I am here to tell you that Fear is  trying to keep you safe. Fear doesn’t want us to take a risk outside of our comfort zones! I’m here to support you this year in stepping out of your comfort zone to explore the life you want to live. Also to support you to getting closer to yourself, your essential nature, the real you! Come join me this year as we spend time in the Fearless Living Principles and explore my new Spa Journey for Your Soul,  as we grow and change into the person we want to be. Until Next Time, Your Life Coach Maureen

Passion

As we journey through the month of November we visit the Fearless Living Pathway of Passion. As you have been leaving your comfort zone for the last 11 months, you began to take risks and developed a courage to explore the paths you dreamed of taking. I hope you are finding new ways to be in the world and seeing that Fear does not have to have all the power over you. 

In Fearless Living we begin to own our own power. We find passion in our lives. We learn to explore our Essential Natures and start to breathe in the Freedom that Fearless Living offers. WE can BE ourselves in all our glory, and be okay with that.

Passion can be as simple as a love of the morning sunrises or as big as a deep-seated desire to work with the orphans in war-torn countries.

I have always been passionate about being a mother. I may not be perfect, but I have a passion that keeps on burning to be the best parent I can be.

I remember when I woke up one day and realized I felt passionate about Fearless Living. I also felt passionate about Shrek movies and Springer Spaniels! I can’t tell you how my heart leaps whenever I see a Springer Spaniel walk around the corner!

What makes your heart leap? Take a little journey into your passionate side and see what shows up for you. Remember, no one can take your passion away from you! It’s yours to hold closely to your soul.

In the United States, November is our Thanksgiving month. A time to reflect on all that we are grateful for. Take out your notebook this month and scribble a few people or things you are grateful for.  While you are there, jot down what you feel passionate about today.

 

Until next Time,

Maureen

TRUST

This month in Fearless Living we take a look at TRUST. That word can sound so powerful and sometimes scary when I say it out loud.. Have you ever had someone say to you, “Don’t you trust me?” or have you said “I don’t trust you.” or “I can’t trust myself.” Today I can say I trust myself. I have integrity and live my life in honesty and with compassion. However, FEAR loves to show up and try to scare me into a little bit of doubt, blame and judgement of the world around me, and my decisions.

I have been practicing trusting reality. I no longer make attempts to change what is. I have said in past notes, I have stopped arguing with reality as much as I used to.  I want to Trust life and the path that I journey on. As I explore the path of surrender, acceptance and integrity, I find more calm, more peace and more joy in my days. As I release my desire for control of others and my surroundings, I relax into a feeling of knowing that I can trust my intuition and  that I am right where I am supposed to be.

Take some time this month to listen to your intuition. See what happens if you begin to trust yourself a little bit. I trust you will be pleasantly surprised!

Just a thought on this colorful October afternoon.

Until next time,

Maureen

INTENTION for September gone by!

In Fearless Living, September is the month we look at Intention. I did not choose to write a post in September and I am wondering today why that was so. I am looking at the thoughts I had as the days went by and no blog appeared to be getting written on my lap top. I knew I wasn’t writing it but I wasn’t connected to why I wasn’t writing it.

I am looking at what my decisions were in September and how they effect me today. Take a look at some of the decisions you have been making or wish you were making these days. How are they effecting your life? Is procrastination taking away some quality from your days? Expectations can keep us stuck. Did I expect I would get around to writing? Do I expect the words to come to me in a flash? I want to revisit my INTENTION for writing my posts.  What am I willing to do to get my monthly posts written?  Is Fear showing up in little ways like procrastination, laziness or doubt?  An example of intention for me today is that the squirrels are very busy gathering their food. They have the Intention of stocking “the pantry” so their winter is comfortable. They don’t expect the food to be available all winter. They intend to be prepared.  I want to take a few notes from the squirrels today.

I am going to get to my October post now!

Until next time,

Maureen

Possibilities

In Fearless Living, August is the month of Possibilities!!! I love that. To believe that anything is possible. Powerful words. I know reality comes into play too, but our borders can expand way beyond our comfort zones when we begin to live in possibility.

How many times have you heard people say: “Oh I couldn’t do that. That’s Impossible! Are you kidding me? At my age?” “I don’t have enough time, enough money, enough smarts!” Maybe you have heard yourself say it many times as well.  Fear loves to keep us safe in our comfort zones, letting us believe a lot of things are just not possible!

I am here today, this last hot day of August, to let you in on a little secret. Life is filled with all sorts of exciting possibilities! Each one of us have dreams and longings. I know ALL things we dream and desire may not be possible in our own lives but many things are!

This note tonight is going to be a short little exercise in writing down a list of things that you love. Things that make you excited to be alive! Perhaps people you want to connect with finally. Your list might have a few resentments and regrets you are ready to look at. Maybe your list will have names of some people you have been shy about connecting with that would like to get to know. You can come up with all sorts of things you want to buy, or create. Travel might be on your list as it is on mine! Finding time for yourself or your children, your spouse or friends might show up.  Tonight you might write on your list that you will take time to write that  letter to your mom or your child and say hello hows your summer been going? Just grab your pen and write… whatever comes to mind, whatever you feel in your heart.

Remember it is just a list! Open up your heart and soul! You are safe to write whatever you want!

POSSIBILITIES!!!!!!!

What is possible in your life today! If you had a magic wand and could wish for a life you wanted, what would it look like? Maybe it would look exactly as it does tonight! 

Have fun writing it down..it can’t hurt can it? Guess what? It might be fun!!!

Next month we will visit ways to make your list come alive!

Until next time, 

Maureen
