Wow wow wow!!!

I recommend books all the time, but THIS book… seriously, I almost unfriended someone over it! lol

The other day I told a friend, “If you don’t read Love Warrior, we can no longer be friends!” And although I wasn’t seriously going to unfriend her, I was serious about my passion for this book!

Love Warrior will transform your thinking, and inspire your soul! I hope you will read it, and I really hope you will let me know what you think of it too. Get Love Warrior on Amazon here.

The book you don’t read won’t help! -Jim Rohn

I am not going to tell you anything about the book itself. I want you to discover all the beauty, raw truth, and inspiration for yourself. But do let me know what you think!! 🙂

Have you already read the book? Be sure to share it with someone who could use it!

Love and Inspiration,

Keep them safe not comfortable…

September 13, 2016 | Posted in Challenges, Family, General, Kids, Learning, Moms, Parenting, Self-Esteem | By

Lately it seems most of my clients are parents so I thought I would pass along the wisdom I have shared several times this week!

You are responsible for keeping your kids safe, not comfortable!

We all want our kids to be happy and healthy, and we never want them to suffer. But sometimes we mistake “suffering” for discomfort.

Discomfort is appropriate and healthy. Discomfort creates an environment for kids to learn how to self soothe, take responsibility, and discover their own strengths. 

Here are a few tips to creating and allowing an appropriate level of discomfort:

  • Allow your kids to complete their own homework, or projects without your input
  • Don’t always rush out to their school to bring them what they forgot at home
  • Encourage your kids to try new things
  • Assign household responsibilities (aka chores)
  • Instead of giving your opinion, ask them what THEY think
  • Ask for their advice, input, or opinion on family matters (not critical issues)
  • Use natural consequences instead of punishments
  • Use boundaries instead of discipline
  • Stop over praising and start asking them how THEY think they did, look, performed, etc…

Remember when they were toddlers and kept falling down while they were learning to walk? Those falls eventually turned into strength and balance! 

Let’s be honest, raising kids is the hardest thing you will ever do! It was hard to watch them fall as toddlers, and it’s hard to watch them struggle as teenagers, But it’s worth it when you know they are prepared for the tough world that’s full of challenges!

There are easy solutions to most parenting challenges, all you have to do is reach out and ask for help! Another quick tip… if you can, ask for help BEFORE it becomes critical!

Why I said “No” to The Steve Harvey Show!

August 2, 2016 | Posted in General, Honesty, Personal Development, Professionals, Self-Esteem | By

Yes, a producer from The Steve Harvey show called me today and inquired about having me on the show!!! AMAZING right!?

So why did I say “no?”

Just because a door opens, doesn’t mean you should jump at what’s behind it!

When I got the phone call from the producer, I was speaking at a charity event. I listened to the voicemail and was so excited and couldn’t wait to call back to get the scoop.

The producer told me that they wanted me, and my step-daughter to come on the show as guests for a step-mom / step-daughter segment. Now when she called, I thought she was calling to have me on as an expert who could give insight on the topic. I did write a best-selling book called “You’re Not My Real Mom” about step parenting after all!

I called my daughter Mattie and we talked about it. Mattie took a call from the producer as well. After some really personal questions, and what seemed like “digging for drama,” Mattie and I decided not to do it.

I’ve dreamed of being on that show, and I absolutely love Steve Harvey, but nothing is worth creating drama in my relationship with my kiddo, and nothing is worth my integrity.

I messaged the producer back and offered to come on the show alone, as a best-selling author and expert, who could provide valuable strategies to guests who are struggling in blended families. We will see what she says!

We’ve all been tempted to put up with something that doesn’t feel right because we want something so bad, but it’s just not worth your integrity. Opportunities are not “one and done,” there will be more!

Your dreams will come true when you stay true to your personal truth! (There’s alotta truth there!)

The best part of my day today…. speaking at the “Hope 4 Us” construction skills training course which trains people in construction, then helps them get jobs! Now THAT was a huge honor for me!

I hope you have a fantastic week and remember to think, act, and live abundantly because opportunities are always presenting themselves!

Love,

Heather

Protect yourself from emotional abuse…

December 8, 2015 | Posted in Anxiety, Challenges, General, Personal Development, Relationships, Self-Esteem, Stress, Videos | By


Has anyone ever told you: “Tear down those walls! Let people in! You’re pushing people away!”

What if that was an OK thing to do sometimes? Let’s face it, not every person should be in our life!

If someone is mean, hurtful, or abusive, shouldn’t we protect ourselves from them?

Watch today’s short video and see what I say about protecting ourselves from abusive people!!!

Watch it, share it, and live inspired now!

Love,

Heather

I connected with the “other side” briefly….

April 30, 2015 | Posted in Change, General, Happiness, Learning, Personal Development, Self-Esteem, Stress | By

11162514_887742371299152_1450963724855257129_nWhile I was vacationing / working in Hawaii, Thad and I took a “breathwork” certification class. Breathwork is a state of altering your breathing for an extended period which puts you into an altered state of consciousness. A certified coach paces your breathing, and guides you through the entire process. It is highly effective in helping people release past trauma, even as far back as the birth experience. Some people see colors and shapes, some “hallucinate,” while others are able to connect to their subconscious on a deep level.

In class, we had to go through the process multiple times and it was incredible! During one of my very powerful sessions, a friend from my past came to visit me! He passed away about 10 years ago, but he stopped in while I was in this altered breathing state just to say hello and to remind me that he is pure joy and love, as they all are on the other side.

During another session, I was reconnected with nightmares that I had as a young child. As a very young person, as far back as I can remember, I had these terrible nightmares. They weren’t of monsters but rather colors and shapes that moved in and out of view… kind of like being stuck inside of a lava lamp! These nightmares haunted me for some time, then they went away, never to return again. Until this breathwork session. During the session, these same scary images came back to me, only they weren’t scary anymore. It’s like they were still stuck in my unconscious, but I released them. And not to get totally nutty on you, but I am under the impression that those dreams that I had, were of my birth experience! How crazy is that?! But it makes sense… at 4 or 5 years old, dreaming of a lava lamp type experience that was scary to me…. what else could it be right?

The entire experience was out of this world. And whether or not I “hallucinated” seeing my friend, or if my lava lamp had nothing to do with my birth… none of that matters. What matters is that the experience was beyond exceptional. I released more emotion than I ever thought possible and afterward, I felt completely new. It was something I will never forget, and the best part is… every time you do it is a new experience! Some people just get a sense of overwhelming peace and relax through the entire thing. I had 2 participants that fell sound asleep and woke refreshed.

I am so excited to be certified so I can share this breathwork experience with my clients. What a gift to be able to help guide people through such a powerful and moving experience! If you would like information about this transformational breathwork experience, please email me at Heather@liveinspirednow.com
