February Events Update

A week into February and I am  just getting this updated…probably because i have been on my ass with Walking Pneumonia!  It sucked, but it’s over now and I’m not going to give it any more energy – it sucked enough.

So let’s look at what we have coming up for you in February and beyond that can help you shape you in to the person you want to be living the life you want to love.

 February: 

Navigating Major Transition, February 9 – Tune in to KGAN CBS2/Fox 28 during the morning show and you’ll see yours truly on air talking about navigating major change.  It can be tough, but I have a couple of tools to help you map and navigate that change in your life!  If you miss it, watch  the No Limits Life Coaching  Facebook page for links to resources you can sign up to receive that will guide you through the process for yourself!

For the activist minded!   A Post Card Party and Community Discussion with Iowa State Senator Rob Hogg, February 12 –  

  • Join us for a community discussion with state senator Rob Hogg about the most effective ways to make an impact on the direction of our state and country, the best way to be heard by our representatives and how we can protect America’s core values. Please bring questions and concerns to be discussed.
  • We will also be having a postcard party! So, if you’d like to keep America’s constitutional amendments intact and protect your civil liberties, we will have postcards and information about where to direct them locally and nationally, depending on your concerns.
  • AND, I will be facilitating a community Vision Board: We the People, a vision board for our country:

Our collective words, vision and our energies have power and we invite you to invest yours in this vision board for our country. Share your ideas, thoughts, visions, poems and power on a collective canvas which we will display in the Cherry building through February 28. Bring positive thoughts, vibes, words and pictures to add and inspire the collective audience to see a future full of possibility, power, and people of action.

The Devil Card 

This morning, I pulled some tarot cards.  I have a lot of cross roads jumping up before me, opportunities, good stuff and things to weigh.  It’s pretty awesome, but when you find yourself in the middle of these ideas, you can start to feel like that child that got spun around and then told to sprint across the field.  

As I asked the question, “where am I right now as I start this new month?”  The very first card I pulled was The Devil.  

YIKES! Right?  

Maybe.  

In this case, the devil represents for me all those tendencies I could give into as chaos swirls around.  I could pull down all of these opportunities on my head and sabotage the shit out of them.  I could get scared and run away and I could destroy some stuff with self-centeredness, ego, greed or old ideas.  Or I could remember that I have been here before, I have had experiences that taught me and I can apply that learning.  

I am grateful for that reminder.  

The truth is, the decisions I have before could truly alter the way I live my life right now and I am excited about them.  I owe it to my highest self to be aware of the primal urges within and to take note, honor them and direct them in the way of most power for good.  I am not sure what will come to fruition and how I will feel as it does.  But I am doing all I can to be centered and aware as I expereince them. 

FOR YOU: 

Consider where you are right now and what you are experiencing.  Have you gone outside yourself for perspective?  Have you done any reflecting beyond the workings of your mind?  Are you fully awake and present and living in the moment that you experiencing now?  How about now?  

A few ways you can get some perspective for the time you are in now: 

1.  A divination tool such as tarot, stones, oracle cards, animal totems, pendulums or your favorite. 

2.  A trusted wise soul who you can count on to give it to you straight. 

3.  Journaling – my favorite tool – the reflection of your own words back to you! 

Try one and see if you are missing something.  And as always, I and my team am here if you need that perspective, just grab a free discovery session with us and we are happy to partner with you to find perspective! Schedule here or visit http://www.nolimtislife.guru to explore more.
