"Everybody can write, we're born storytellers. Usually, it's just allowing and learning how to start trusting your instincts and your intuition... At the very core of it, it's letting go of, I'm not going to be good enough."This episode's special guest is Terrie Silverman, MFA -- a writer, solopreneur, and director. As writers, Terrie and I met in the most perfect way. We were both co-authors in the brilliant book Sacred Redesign. Terrie is also the founder of Creative Rites where she helps people play, excavate, gather, and assemble their creative gold so they can tame their inner critics, access their authentic voice, and discover their extraordinary stories. Together, we had the most incredible conversation about surfacing your truth, expanding your self-awareness, and discovering what it takes to become a powerful storyteller. Check it out!  In this episode, Terrie and I explore: What got Terrie interested in using writing as a method to tap into authenticity. The disconnect between the inner gold and our ability to express externally. Cultivating the courage & discipline to sit with yourself. Writing as a practice that expands your identity.Moving beyond the worries of being good enough. "I only get to hear the stories of those of us that have survived and that makes it an imperative for us to tell our stories." Terrie's technique for getting your magic out - even when you're stuck. Tips for crushing the editing process.   Unpacking the power of origin stories. Why we believe our own stories aren't that special.  The important difference between anecdotes and stories. And more...I loved this conversation with Terrie. It's always a joy to discover how different writers crack themselves open so they can access the gold within. If you're ready to discover your authentic voice and show the inner critic who's boss, this episode is for you.     This week's journaling prompt.       I remember...Well, the thing is, what I really want to say is...How to connect with Terrie.

I have a lot to say about this episode's topic because it's so close to my heart. Self-expression is a catalyst for more aligned opportunities. It's an invitation to know who you really are, and it's a tool for experiencing life in the most fulfilling of ways. Best of all, journaling is a tool and a practice that can elevate our self-expression - opening the doorway to all the gifts that show up when you can OWN your truth. "When we hold back, restrain, silence, and shrink, there are aspects of  us that go unexplored, unacknowledged and unseen -- sometimes those parts of us are THE most potent aspects of our being."Tune in now to hear us explore: How society stifles our self-expression. Understanding the courage it takes to be our fully expressed selves. Articulating the dangers that restrained expression protects us from. Why self-expression catalyses deep inner work. Allowing self-expression to guide you to your dreams. "When we express our full selves... we step into the space of more opportunities, like-minded people, intuition, and freedom."  How self-expression heightens your awareness of who you really are. Journaling as a tool for developing the skill of self-expression.  How childhood experiences can make us lose trust in our self-expression. My personal story of reclaiming fearless self-expression. The power of the edit. And more...Deep down we all have a deep need to be seen for our truth. We're drawn to authenticity because there's a part of us that wants to experience life without the social mask. We want to feel that feeling of being uncensored and untamed.  It can take huge courage to show your full self. And your journal is here to help open the floodgates to more experimentation, intentional risks, and more.  What does your authentically expressed self feel like? I invite you to find out... page by page. This week's journaling prompt.       What's burning inside?

"Bravery is about moving through our expansion and growth pains to tap into what's on the other side." Often the thing in the way is our thoughts, beliefs, and assumptions about who we are and who we can be.

One of the reasons I journal is to access and claim the truth of who I am. This type of journaling is deep work - sacred work even...But I'm fully aware that there are times I don't go deep enough. Maybe you experience this too? Moments when you step away from your journal too soon - or when you hold back from pulling away a layer because you can't 'allow' yourself to go there. When we stay in the shallows with our inner inquiries, we limit the wisdom we can uncover. In turn, we miss out on the full potential that journaling has to offer. In this episode, we unpack the most common reasons why we get stuck in superficiality. Then reveal some proven, powerful practices for going deeper than we've ever gone before. Enjoy! "We live in an age of decreasing attention spans because of the onslaught and avalanche of information that's put in front of us every day."Highlights from this episode include: Unpacking the excuse of lack of time. Exposing the danger of instant gratification. Resistance is the wall that's keeping us from our truth.Cultivating the discipline to sit a little longer.Questions as portals to our inner doors. "On the other side of resistance, impatience, and lack of time is the opportunity to crack open new insights and the invitation to make new discoveries."  What happens when we shine the light of awareness on resistance.Leveraging monologues as a way to go beyond the shallows. learning to sit with uncomfortable feelings.Using the breath to sharpen our awareness. Why depth is an act of rebellion. And more...In a world where we breathe instant gratification (thanks to social media!!!), going deeper than you think is possible in your journal is an act of rebellion! It's an act that connects you to your best self and your brilliant mind, creative insight, and unique perspective. Deep dive journaling is a powerful practice.But don't take my word for it!

When we encounter unexpected change, the shift in experience can knock us off our centre. Certainty is replaced with unpredictability, and that can leave us feeling exposed, vulnerable, and even unsafe. When our emotions are high, intelligence can be low. In turn, it's harder to think clearly. This can lead to inertia and a feeling of stuckness. The spiral gets reinforced! "When there's chaos in our lives, being able to come back to ourselves, recalibrate, and feel grounded in who we are is a powerful way to navigate life's ups and downs." Journaling is a powerful tool that can help you empower yourself in moments like these. In turn, you can connect with your inner wisdom, clear your head, and get clarity on what to do next.

If you're an entrepreneur, weaving a journaling practice into your identity and routine could be one of the most powerful and activating choices you make.  This episode reveals why..."Journaling is a self-led practice...  You get to chose the angle you explore.  You get to shape the conversation you have with yourself. You get to explore what's present for you in any given moment."  In this episode we explore: How journaling expands your sense of self.  Shifting from instinctive reactions to intentional responses through journaling .Elevating our decision-making process and feeling empowered to say NO.Cultivating reflection and self-evaluation to grow exponentially. Sparking self-leadership and intrinsic motivation. Journaling as a tool to access the wisdom of the present moment. "We are the catalyst. We are the decision-maker. We are the blank canvas. We are the chooser. We are the implementor. It all starts with us. Always."The only person you can excel at being is YOU. Supporting yourself in the moments in-between external support. Uncovering entrepreneurial ideas in your journal. In journaling, YOU are the expresser, the listener, and the witness. You are ALL of them.Journaling as a tool for freeing up creative bandwidth for higher-level work. Ideas to enhance your journaling practice.  And more..."The more we know ourselves the more power and capacity we have to create our desires.. When we understand the being that we are, there's a knock-on effect in ALL areas of our lives."Your work as an entrepreneur calls you to your creative edge. It invites you to take risks with your ideas ( and your heart). It puts you on a collision course with failure, and most importantly, it opens the door to accelerated personal growth. Your ability to walk yourself through this journey (that's as unique as you), shapes your success, profitability, and impact in this world. Fortunately, support is always close to hand. The answers are within. You have reserves you can draw upon that run deeper than you know. Wisdom is ready to guide you - if you ask for it. The simple act of taking pen to paper dives much deeper than self-expression alone. For in your musings and meanderings are pots of gold-plated wisdom that can elevate your business, yourself, and your life.
