What’s the Metaphor?

Lovely you,

I hope you are well! Especially now, especially at this time.

In this post I’m sharing:
A video on a question that can provide you with the answers to your challenge–something that’s supporting my clients right now. (3.25 mins).

That question is:

What’s the metaphor here, for me?

This is a coaching question I posed during a group I’m running.

We took time to have each woman pick an area of their life and consider the question in relation to it:

e.g. Their marriage, their relationship with their body, pandemic living.

Some of the answers were:

“I’m in a boxing ring with my body, beating her up.”

“I’m looking at him and seeing myself.”

“Ducking down and popping up again.”

Each woman then considered what she could learn, from viewing the subject through the metaphor lens. Because our approach to creating what we want has a direct impact on whether or not we get it, and how the process goes.

Seeing our approach inside a metaphor can help us make the big adjustment needed to create the change we want–or see the change we actually need.

For more, watch below.

And: if you answer the question for yourself–feel welcome to hit reply and share it with me.

Love Lindsey

Telling Your Story Live Webinar

Something exciting is happening! I’m running an live online workshop on Telling Your Story. If you listen to my podcast, you’ve heard someone you love and others you’ve never met tell one of their stories. You’ve experienced the feeling of ‘I would love to do that’. You’ve been wanting to explore your own stories and find ways to tell them in a way that empowers you and others. This workshop is about that. 

If you want to join the online workshop, it’s complimentary, click the link below to register. https://bit.ly/maycallwithLindsey

When: Friday, May 29 10 am to 11:30 am PT / 1 pm to 2:30 pm ET

We’re going to talk about living courageously; telling your life story, your way; finding your stories; and receiving the gifts that come from telling them. Big, magical, life-enhancing things can happen when we do this. I’ve seen it time and time again. I hear from my podcast guests how transformational their experience of speaking their stories is–how much they fall in love with themselves afterwards. This self-love does wondrous things for each area of our life.

One woman who shared her story at the live Things I’d Never say event talked about how, afterwards, she no longer felt shame, and she started speaking up in all areas of her life–including her work and her marriage. This meant more confidence and peace inside herself, and more open conversations and a change in her outer world–at work and in her marriage.

Another woman who also shared her story at the live event talked about no longer playing small, about finally feeling free to be who she is and do the work she wants to do in the world. 

It’s incredible what happens when we step into living courageously, telling our life story our way, finding our stories, and receiving the gifts that come from telling them.

How to Support You and Your Business

Are you feeling freaked out? I was, too. Let’s talk about how to support you and your business.

I’m running a call called ‘How to Support You and Your Business’.

When: Tuesday, March 24 at 11 am PT/ 2 pm ET. Set aside an hour for us.

Where: Zoom. Use this link to join:  http://bit.ly/marchcallwithLindsey

You don’t need more toilet paper. There was a moment though, where I thought we did. “Maybe we need to get more toilet paper,” I said to my husband. “Do we need to get more toilet paper?” I’d sunk into a panic. I didn’t feel safe and I wanted to find something to do, some way to feel safer, and to make sure my family would be safe.

Are you feeling this way?

Be with me for a moment. Let’s take a deep breath together. Let’s move our bodies a little bit—stand strong if we feel ungrounded, or move flowingly if we feel locked up. This will help get out of the fight or flight response and into our inner wisdom an intelligence.

Creativity is available in this moment. New ideas. Ways to take care of ourselves and our businesses. We can thrive through this.

I’m about to share something that’s on a kind of socially sensitive subject.

In the Philippines they have a little bucket called a Tabo that they use to pour water onto their butts. I’m guessing afterwards they use a washable cloth to dry with. To me, this seems even better than toilet paper.

On my walk into work today, the bridge across the water into downtown had more people on it and more cyclists than I’ve seen before. I thought “Huh. A post-virus world could mean we’re all actually fitter.”

I sent a text message to an acquaintance today letting her know I was thinking of her and her family in Italy—sending her and them love. A post-virus world could mean we’re all more connected.

My husband is a chiropractor. We had a conversation last night about his business, about his patients with their pain and their need for help and them wondering if it was safe to come in. He’s going to have his staff call the patients and let them know the cleaning and sterilizing measures they’re taking, and how they are asking anyone who is sick not to come in. I wish my accupuncturist’s office would do that.

We talked about a café that just opened near us—a business many people may be avoiding at this time. I thought: “If they opened a to-go window, they’d be thriving right now. People still want to be able to participate in the social joy of getting a coffee and a snack from a café.”

Here’s what I’m thinking. Necessity is the mother of invention. You can thrive through this. First: you need to take care of yourself. So you can get to a place inside where you can access your inner wisdom and smarts.

Second: from there, you can think of ways to care-take your business and the people who you serve through it.

Let’s talk about this. I’m running a call called ‘How to Support You and Your Business’.

watching future-fantasizing

Lately I’ve been paying closer and closer attention to my mind. The thoughts I think. How they impact my day, my moment, the way I feel about everything. I’ve been noticing how often my mind defaults to thinking about the future. Sure, it thinks about the past, too–things that have come before this moment–but most…

Surprise, it’s a surprise!

I was going to write a post on expecting the unexpected. On how I have practiced, over the years, letting Life take the wheel. On how I actually LOOK FORWARD to the surprises that I’m expecting. Side note: does that make them not a surprise? This is something I’ve been practicing. Letting go. Surrendering. Trusting….
