I have created these Personal Definitions and Misconceptions for commonly used terms and ideas to give you a clearer understanding of how I work. These phrases are used by many different people, each of whom is operating from a different perspective. Communication and language are precious tools to me, so, let’s sit down and have a chat together!
Consciousness: the ability to observe your self and have a frame of reference for what is happening to you in any given moment, even if you cannot make immediate external changes
Power: the self-reliant and unlimited energy source that fuels your imagination, choices, and actions, so long as Adult You is in charge.
Authentic: operating from behind your own eyes, knowing your personal preferences, and willing to claim them in your day to day actions.
Spirituality: the fourth dimension of our selves alongside our thoughts, our feelings, and our actions, that forms our connection to the larger universe of space and time.
Adult Authority: your right to exist as a human being with all the power that comes with that, regardless of who you are, what you do, where you come from, or what you want.
Big Energy: the source of unlimited intelligence that is available in our universe. It has the ability to clear out old neurological patterns you no longer need and to minimize obstacles so you can experience more of your true self.
True Self: the one and only expression of life on earth as YOU. This is not about pressuring yourself to fit in nor is it about resigning yourself the loneliness of an outsider. It is about embracing your subjective preferences in this moment of time and understanding that in their heart of hearts, and soul of souls, everyone is different from each other. We all belong to the Everyone is Different Club and the only thing to bring is your True Self.
Edge: It’s that competitive place or creative place where the combination of one’s qualities and gifts create an obvious delineation as compared to others.
Getting Blissed: It is about having your inner and outer worlds sync up more easily so you can free up your energy and your ideas and point them in the direction of your true desires.
Emotional Intelligence: Coined by Daniel Goleman, I use it to help illustrate the difference between how Kid You and Adult You experience emotions and respond to them in others, in the framework of The Three You’s.
