I was once stuck; 70lbs overweight, unhealthy, depressed and anxious (yes you can be both at the same time). On the outside I appeared to have it all. People saw me as intelligent, successful and strong; a natural leader. Inside however I was slowly dying. I struggled with high levels of self doubt, criticism and analysis paralysis.
I used all kinds of distractions not to admit how unhappy I was like over working, eating or just plain checking out whenever I got the chance. I fit into the mold but I was not connected to my authentic Self, my core presence or even my sensuality as a woman. I felt less than powerful and I was getting exhausted trying to keep up the facade. I struggled not only to recognize my own power but to be truly seen.
Then I decided to start releasing all that blocked energy through deep personal work. I discovered the work of A Course in Miracles and started using the principles of mindfulness practices and everything began to change. I learned that to be an effective leader of your life you need to be connected to your heart more and your head less.
I learned to do the inside work for the outside results.
