Three things to do when you feel stuck.

No matter how long you’ve been on the healing path there will be times when you feel stuck and that’s ok. As you peel off each layer, things will surface that require deeper exploration, thoughts and processing. This means that sometimes, you’l feel stuck. Sometimes your brain will be like, really? Are you sure you want to look at that? Are you ready? This is your psyches way of telling you pay attention and prepare for the next level healing. In this session I share the 3 things I do to move through stuckness.

 

The 4 black women who keep me straight when I’m strugglin’.

Despite all the stuff I share about taking care of yourself, I am human which means that sometimes there are days when I just feel like sh*t. With parenting, college essays and dealing with menopausal hormonal insomnia, things sometimes feel really hard. It’s during these times when I lean on my powerful sacred sista squad to put me straight. In this weeks live I share about the amazing black women in my life that nurture, advise, support and keep me accountable.

‘I’m stuck in negative thinking!’

Without a safe space to process, many of us have buried difficult feelings for years. Therefore, it makes sense that our negative thinking is the emotional leaking out of a difficult past. An important part of the healing process is understanding that it’s not linear. There is no golden destination and sometimes there will be moments when things just feel sh*t as the layers come off. In this week’s live, I share the 5 tools I use when this funk gets in the way. 

How to enjoy the healing process.

Often times, the healing process is dominated by unpacking our pain, trauma and the challenges of daily living.  However, an important part of the journey is being able to enjoy your growth in the present as well as learning from the past and planning your future.

In this session, I share 3 ways to enjoy the healing process. Use these tools to learn how to bask in the beauty of healing and being your best self right now.

How to practice black mindfulness.

With the racist backlash from England losing the football, there is understandably a lot of intense rage and stress from our community at the treatment of these black players. Mindfulness is an important tool for processing difficult emotions but often the cultural context gets missed in the conversation.

In this session, I share 5 principles for effective mindfulness with the additional exploration of how to include what it means for black people living under the system of racism.  

‘I don’t know what my needs are?’

One of the questions that clients often find difficult to answer is what they need. If we were raised in homes that were neglectful and abusive, we shut down because it wasn’t safe to express our feelings or needs. As adults, this pattern can show up as numbness, anger and resentment in people pleasing relationships so in this session, I share a tool that can help you reconnect to your feelings along with 8 important human needs to consider as a black woman.
