When we are faced with circumstances outside of our control it may feel like an impossibility to let go.
And yet-- letting go is exactly what we must "do".
One of the ways I "trick" my mind into letting go is by asking myself the below 3 questions.
Since inner peace is a way of being many of us want to experience, this exercise works quite well.
1. Do I wish to experience inner peace or conflict?
Inner peace, of course!
Note: Some of us still like being in conflict...it provides a distraction of sorts and gives us an excuse not to take responsibility for our life. Ouch, yes. I get it. Some of us are in conflict and don't even know it. All have been true for me. It's part of the human condition at times. It's up to us to be aware and then make the choice again and again as life carries on...
2. What must I be willing to do in order to experience inner peace?
Be open to trying things that support this way of living. There are many things/ tools we can do/ use: books, meditation, a mentor, energy work, prayer, workshops, podcasts... I do all of this and then some :) The point is, I am willing to do what it takes to live a peaceful life. Over time, we may need more or less of these things/ tools based on what we are facing in life. More stressful times = more support. Make sense?
3. Who must I become to experience inner peace?
Become a student of inner peace. Know thyself. Use the tools above.
Today, right now, begin to practice: acceptance, non-judgment, non-attachment, presence, compassion... and the big one - forgiveness. These are only a few and often the ones that are most profound.

Relationship Reading for Clarity with Stephanie
One of my favorite topics is relationships. Especially right now it feels like so many of us are struggling and our relationships are taking the hit. If we are not careful, we will do harm to ourselves and one another. We may make choices we will later regret.
What to do?
1. Get support. Listen to my podcast about relationships here.
2. Be willing to expand your view and possibilities. Read This.
3. Get immediate clarity about what is REALLY happening. Contact me for a reading here.
The reading I do will give you a look into the dynamics of both people in the relationship.
You will see where you disconnect/ lost sight of each other.
You will see the energy that can bring the relationship back together.
I am always humbled and amazed how these card readings provide insight and a sense of relief/hope for the future. Let's face it, we all want to love and be loved. And most of us lack the tools to do so.
Email me here to schedule a virtual session. Special price of $60 (usually $95).

The past few Mind the Gap Podcast episodes have been about relationships and how having an understanding of ego and how to deal with it as it relates to your pain body is important for success.
What are you noticing?
Are you processing, integrating, applying the wisdom?
Are you being compassionate to yourself in the process?
In this weeks episode Stephanie shares a powerful process of reflective writing to help you better understand the mechanism behind the pain body so that you can begin to release it.
Stephanie gives suggestions on what to write about. For example, maybe you will be inspired to write about a recent pain body flare up. What triggered it, including the sequence of thoughts and events that followed? The process takes less than an hour. Why do it? The combination of reflection and writing is how we learn, grow, and let go.
Stephanie also gives a few pointers on how to notice when you are acting from ego and pain body by noticing what happens in your physical, mental, and emotional body.
Remember, you are the creator of your life. What you think, you create. What you create you become. Makes sense to choose wisely, doesn't it?
You can also use this reflective writing process as an opportunity to get clear on what you do want to create such as healthy, enjoyable, prospering relationships!
The practice of reflective writing brings awareness to what you need to transform in order to experience the freedom of being the best version of yourself. It is from this place that you will attract the best into your life. Be the best, attract the best. Got it?
Listen closely. Be kind. Do the work :) Let's go! Listen Here.
