Subtle Thoughts
Stop diminishing yourself and start telling yourself that you are an amazing human.  The subtle thoughts you tell yourself have a huge impact on your current results. Did you know that many of the things you tell yourself aren’t true?  They may even seem helpful or useful but actually are likely slowing you down from creating results. You talk to yourself day in and day out and likely you don’t even notice what you are often saying.   Most of these thoughts start to feel like facts or simple observations.   But, they are not! Underneath, what you say to yourself has a meaning, that meaning determines what you feel and what you do or don’t do in your life. When you start to slow down your thoughts and understand the subtle messages that aren’t serving you, you can begin to let them go.  In an instant you can create momentum in your life and business. In today’s episode I point out just a few of those subtle thoughts that you may be thinking are helpful or innocent, that are actually slowing you down in hitting your goals.

Meditation 101
Read this one thing today and I promise you won’t regret it. You are constantly struggling with staying focused and feel like your mind is on the never ending treadmill. The idea of sitting down and being still sounds dreadful. You know you need something to ground you. You are tired of feeling overwhelmed and exhausted.  By 12 pm you are ready for a nap and the day isn’t even half over. I used to feel this way too! In 2010, my first yoga teacher training, part of our homework was to start meditating 20 minutes 2x a day. I  thought this is insane, you clearly don’t know me at all. There’s no way I can do this.  I can hardly sit with my thoughts for 2 minutes. I am always up for a challenge and I had paid a lot of money to do the training. I wanted to do it “right”. I totally failed.  I think I lasted maybe a week. Years later I came back to it.  I was totally stressed out running two yoga studio’s teaching a dozen classes a week, managing the mom life, and unhappy in my marriage. I was desperate, so I gave it a second try. The practice has 100% changed my life. I can tell you all the amazing benefits of meditation, but just google meditation and read them there. In today’s podcast I’m going to share with you my journey and how to get started the simple way. To learn more about working with Rachel. Click here.

Are you struggling to set boundaries? You feel like your life is all over the place. People are constantly taking advantage of you.  Your business seems to get put on the back burner because of other people. Your friends are always late and you never do anything about it. Your boss yells at you and you just sit there and take it. Any of these sound familiar? Likely, you are struggling with setting boundaries. Boundaries are not meant to control other people or manipulate others into doing what you want.  They are for you to protect yourself emotionally and physically. They come from a place of love and kindness for yourself. Boundaries are meant to create more intimacy and connection with yourself and others. Today’s podcast episode is going to teach how and when to set boundaries for yourself and others so your life can feel calm and grounded. Learn more about working with Rachel click here.

Building Your Self-Confidence Muscle
Stop telling yourself that confidence is something that you either have or you don’t. You put together an offer for social media and every time you go to post it you freeze.   You either don't post it at all, take off the call to action, or post something super passive like DM if you think this sounds interesting. Then no one responds so it takes you weeks or months to post another offer. You so badly want to be helping people. You’ve got all these amazing tools to teach them. No judgment if I just called you out.  I was doing the same thing.   I would write these posts and feel so excited that someone was going to read it and reach out, and then crickets. I thought it was that my copy sucked. But here’s the thing: I hadn’t built up my self-confidence muscle.  I was constantly doubting myself, my skills, and my abilities. Of course my calls to action were passive or just non existent.   I wasn’t sold on myself or my offer. In order to grow your biz you have to develop unshakable self-confidence. It’s essential. It’s like a plant without water, it’s going to wither away. In today’s episode, I’m going to teach you how to grow your self-confidence muscle. This episode is by far one of my favorites to date.

Lesson From Your Future Self
You're working with all the dream clients at the prices you only dreamed of charging. Can you imagine? Most of us spend the majority of our life looking to our past for how to create results for our future. The past only teaches what we have already done. Which is great if you got the result you wanted. But, if you didn't, the past is only going to create a similar result if we repeat what we did.  Which is what most of us tend to do. Albert Einstein said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and hoping for a different result.  So basically we are all a little insane. (lol) What do we do if we want a different result? We know what we tried before didn’t work out? It’s time to try on something new. Ask your future self for the answers. Seems a little to woo? Give it a try. I promise it’s amazing what wisdom your future self has in store for you. Not sure how or where to to start? Listen to today's podcast episode Lessons from Your Future Self.

Letting Your Past Go
I used to be one of those people who lived in her past beating herself up about choices she made or didn’t make.  Constantly feeling anxious and overwhelmed. I never really thought I could be one of those people who was actually present with what was going on in her current life, and look to the future for the answers. I was raised in a family that seems to hold on pretty tightly to the past.  It’s all I really knew.. Then I was introduced to future thinking. At first I thought it was a crock of shit.  How could you get answers from your future self? It seemed pretty absurd. I couldn’t see the opportunity because I was so attached to my past. The hard truth is, I was terrified to give up these stories, they had shaped me into the person I was, it felt like I was going to lose a piece of myself. But after my divorce, I so desperately didn’t want to keep repeating some of my bad habits.  So I decided to give it a real chance. Accepting your past, honoring it, and leaving it there is so powerful. On today’s episode I am going to share with you the tool I used to put my past in the past so I could begin to receive the knowledge and wisdom that my great future self possesses.

Get More Done
How to get more done in less time. You think your schedule is what's making you feel exhausted, virtual school, your business, keeping up with the house, and don't forget at the same time trying to lose a few pounds. You feel so tired. Desperately wanting a break. A break from everything. You want someone to tell you it's okay, to give you permission to just pause.  Pause so you can feel less tired and less overwhelmed by everything. You want to wake up feeling calm and relaxed about what the day is going to bring. That you have it all together, that managing it all is no problem. That you respond to everything in your day from a calm centered place, not from a pressured exhausted state. You secretly want to be a woman who follows her schedule without any struggle. Who makes it look so easy so where others are even jealous of her and how much she is able to accomplish every day. You buy the planners and have it all organized and ready to go. Writing it all down, putting it on the calendar, telling yourself today I can stick to it. Instead,  you find yourself constantly changing things or just not doing things that you wrote down.  Look, you are human and you have a human brain that responds to desire. We all do. You just need to learn how to follow through for yourself. Plan out your week in a strategic way. In today's episode I’m going to give you all the details and tools on how I do it, and how I’ve taught hundreds of other people to do it to.   Listen here for the all the good juice.

Time is Neutral
Let’s be brutally honest, how many times have you caught yourself saying I wish there were more hours in the day? I know I have more time than I would like to admit. You might even be thinking about it right now. You think about everything you want to accomplish in your day. I get it. You are juggling work, kids, a house, and like many of my clients, a business. A business they are working to grow..  So they can leave their day job. You want to feel like there is enough time in the day to get everything done. Deep down you want to be that person everyone is envious of.  Has it all together and makes it look so easy. You have likely tried getting up earlier and it works for a short amount of time, but then you lose the momentum.  Your desire for sleep takes over. The real problem starts with how you are thinking about your time. When you change your relationship with time, you stop wasting so much time. You actually slow down and get more done. I know it sounds a bit crazy. But it’s true.  I know because it has worked like magic for me, and so many of my clients. Today’s podcast is all about seeing time as Neutral and why it’s the key to creating more time. To learn more about working with Rachel click here.

F*ck Fear
Do you dream? Not at night, but dream about things you want and desire in your life. We all do.  Sometimes we ignore them, or hide them under the rug.  Only because of fear. Fear keeps us from going after what we want. Our passions, our goals. You may not see it as fear, but it is. Fear is also what hides behind most anxiety. In today’s episode we are going to dive into fear and how to start facing it. Stop letting it run the show, and start leaning into it. Fear can be useful.  It stops us from walking into traffic. It protect us when a predator is after us. But in today’s modern world we are for the most part safe, and it’s time we face our fears and live our lives courageously. Listen in and get ready to conquer your fears. To learn more about working with Rachel click here.

You wake up every morning and feel super blah. If someone were to ask you how you’re doing, you would say fine. Not really happy and not depressed either. Honestly kind of numb. You realize it’s affecting so many areas of your life. Your work just doesn’t feel as fun and exciting anymore, your relationship seems like it has hit a wall, and often you would rather just binge on Netflix instead of  hanging out with friends. You want to feel happy. Real happiness, not that fake shit that you see all over social media. You have tried so many things. You exercise daily, mediate, even recently started journaling but none of it’s working fast enough. Listen friend. The root problem is you are believing that you are supposed to be happy more than you’re not. So you are avoiding all the negative emotions.  The more you avoid the negative emotions the more numb you feel. In today’s episode I teach you all about creating real happiness. Not the fake shit. The real hard truth is you have to be willing to feel all the emotions.  None are off limits. Ready to fully experience all the human emotions?  Book a free 1:1 discovery call today.  Click here.

Procrastination Part 2
You now are beginning to understand why you procrastinate, but it feels impossible to get out of this habit. You know deep down that you are afraid of failing.  Of not being able to complete the task. Not doing a “good enough” job. It’s keeping you from excelling.  It’s keeping you from getting to the next level in your work and your life. It’s impacting everything. Your finances, your self-confidence, and your relationships. Constantly on edge, feeling moody, and always working or thinking about work. You know if you could just get over this hump, it’s all going to work out. You tried blocking out your calendar.  You even color coded it. You're still just not sticking to it. The key is learning how to be intentional with your thinking and then putting it into aligned action.  Aligned action requires focus, clarity, and ease. In today's episode I am going to teach you exactly how I create this.  So you can do it too! Learn more about working with Rachel click here.

Procrastination Part 1
Do you ever find yourself putting things off till the last minute? Have you been doing this since you were a kid? Waiting until the last minute to study for an exam? Believing that if you're under pressure you’ll perform better. Now doing it with your work. In the meantime you feel stressed out, because you can’t stop thinking about the task or project. Deep down you just want it done. So you can stop thinking about it.  Stop worrying about it. But every-time you try to get started, you feel paralyzed. You planned it all out.  You know everything you need to do, and something keeps you from taking action. You're beginning to think you were just born this way. You were born a procrastinator. It’s not true. It’s just a habit. A habit that is ready to be changed. In today’s episode I’m going to teach all about the procrastination model and why it's the first step in breaking this habit.

Worry has been a part of you for as long as you can remember.   You so desperately need to do something to get you out of your own head.  You know it’s sucking up so much energy, leaving you feeling depleted and unable to show up as your best self for your work, your family, and your health. You want to feel calm and centered so you can get more done.  Be more present and not feel like you are always on edge. Deep down in your soul you believe this is the answer to loving your life. You have tried setting up a morning routine, but you just don’t follow through.  Even though every night you tell yourself you are going to. The problem isn’t setting up your routine.  The problem is you haven’t gotten your brain on board. Today's podcast I help you set up your non-negotiables and get your mind into a place where you can follow through. To learn more about working with Rachel click here.

Do you ever think wow, she’s so disciplined. I wish I could be more like that? What are you making it mean that this person has that you don’t? (FYI this is key) Isn’t that deep down why you want what she has? You want to feel a certain way. Confident. Healthy. Calm. Maybe all three. Discipline isn’t something we all have or don’t have, we aren’t born with it.  We create it. We create it, just like anything else we want for ourselves in our lives. We create discipline because we think it will make us feel  a certain way. This is why we do everything we do in our lives. It’s always for a feeling we are wanting, craving, and seeking. Did you know that you don’t have to have discipline to have that feeling you are wanting. WHAT? You could just change the way you are thinking. If you want to create discipline, you are going to have to do this first. I’m not saying that being a disciplined person is a bad thing.  I actually think we should all create it.  But, not because we want to feel a certain way.  We should create it because it gets shit done. Don’t you want to get shit done? So you can have a wildly successful life. A life on purpose. In today’s episode we talk all about how to create discipline.  And all the thoughts you are going to need to make this happen. Learn more about working with Rachel Click here.

Creating Done Energy
Have you ever contemplated what you are made up of? I don’t mean your bones, muscles, and organs but what your entire body is made up of. Energy. Just like everything else in the universe we too are made of energy. Energy is just how things change and move. Everything is always changing and moving. So we are always changing and moving. It is believed that energy works like a magnet. Attracting like energy back to its original origin. As humans we are constantly attracting what we do or don’t want.  Consciously or subconsciously.   For humans it is understood that energy is created through our thoughts and feelings.  When they are aligned they create a magnetic force. In today’s podcast episode I am going to talk about getting into done energy.   I believe when we live from done energy goals become inevitable. To learn more about working with Rachel click here.

How to Self-Coach
If you are still here you have heard me talk a lot about self-coaching and you might be curious what that even entails. Being coached and learning how to self-coach has changed my life in so many positive ways. I am a firm believer that if we all did it daily we would have a lot less struggle and suffering in our lives, our families, in our communities, and on our planet. Now more than ever as we all live through the biggest global pandemic in history, it’s important that we learn how to manage our stress and anxiety. The world is filled with judgement. I don’t know about you but I am seeing it everywhere. When we take these judgements on, we often become anxious, bitter, angry, and lash out. Learning how to not take things personally will help us all be kinder less judgmental individuals. The self-coaching tool that I am going to teach you today is here to help you be less judgmental of yourself and others. To begin to think intentionally instead of defaulting from your subconscious programming. In today’s episode I am going to teach you how to start a self-coaching routine. This is an episode not to be missed. I keep it short and easy for you to follow. I would love to hear your thoughts and how it’s working for you. Learn more about working with Rachel click here.

Yup it’s that time of year.   The time of year when many of us set goals. Goals for the new year. But how often do you set your goals, only to bail on them by February 1. This year let’s do it differently. Let’s set one goal. Yes, just one. And, kill it. Knock it out of the park. Once you hit that goal, then you can move onto the next and the next. In today’s episode I am going to walk you step by step through how I set goals for myself and for my clients. First, let's help you get into the right mindset to set a goal for success, then we’ll create 1 long term goal, and last, one short term goal. Learn more about working with Rachel click here.

It’s almost 2021, and I’m sure, like many people, you are thinking about your New Years goals and intentions. This year you are thinking it will be the year to lose the last 10 pounds, start meditating, stop losing your shit at every little thing, or finally start that side hustle you have been talking about for years. How do you plan to make these goals happen? If you are like many people, are you thinking you are going to have to use willpower to get there?  Thinking this is the only way. I think of willpower like a candle.  The flame is super strong when you first light it, and it can burn for hours, but eventually the wick ends and the candle burns out. Willpower works the same way, it’s not sustaining. If I take away all your willpower and tell you now you have to create your goal without it, does your brain freak out a little bit?  Does it tell you that’s the only way to make it happen? What if there is another way. You can hit your goals without any willpower. Do you want to learn how? I used willpower over and over for years, and it worked at first and like all my favorite candles it always burnt out.  I know there had to be another way, I just didn’t know how.  So I went to work to figure it out. In today's episode, I am going to teach you an alternative to using willpower so you can hit your goals and sustain them. Learn more about my work click here. Download my free workbook Chaos to Calm.

Is there a habit that you have been wanting to change or a new one you have been wanting to create? You are in luck, this week's podcast is all about habits and i am going to teach you my 4 simple steps to creating a new habit. Habits are just something we do over and over.  Our brains create habits because they are always looking for the ways to expend the least amount of energy. It’s our brain's way of being super resourceful. Unfortunately not all habits we create promote our wellbeing.  Some of the habits we have created consciously or subconsciously are sabotaging our goals. Habits in general can be a really great thing, as long as they are working with us, not against us. Let’s start creating some amazing habits that foster wellbeing and help us to hit all of our goals.

Do you ever wonder why some days you feel super motivated and other days you just can’t get yourself off the couch. I used to. I never fully understood where motivation came from.

In today’s episode I am going to teach you all about the motivation triad and what motivates our brains.  Understanding what motivates our brains will then allow you to create it whenever and wherever you want. No more excuses why you aren’t hitting your goals. 2021 is going to be the year we all smash them. Whatever they might be for you. Finally losing those last 10 pounds.

Do you trust yourself? Seems like a pretty obvious answer to most.   But really do you? Most people deep down in their core don’t trust themself.   Honestly, they shouldn’t because they don’t follow through with what they are going to do for themself. For example, do you tell yourself I am going to meditate and self-coach every morning, and  do it at best 2 days a week? Or that you are going to read every night and you end up just watching netflix and pass out? Seems like not a big deal right? But. . . It is.  When you don’t follow through for yourself, you break down your ability to trust yourself for the bigger things. So when you want to lose weight or start that new business you don't’ trust yourself that you’ll be able to. Self-trust is key in creating any result in your life. A healthy body. A calm life. A business without overwhelm. A home without yelling and screaming. A relationship filled with love and ease.

Do you find yourself in the pantry, the freezer, or grabbing a glass of wine everyday around 4 pm? You know it’s not good for you, but it also feels like the only option when you are so worn out from your day.  You deserve it right? Deep down you really want to stop, because you know it’s not helping in your cause to take off those last 10 pounds. In the coaching world, we talk about this as buffering.  Using a false pleasure to feel different then you currently do. It’s a fabulous avoidance tactic.  Except in the long run. It doesn’t foster wellbeing. It keeps us from fully experiencing what we are capable of. The solution is to stop.  To give up the false pleasures.  To instead allow all the feelings.

Decision Dominance
The holidays are filled with decisions to be made.  If you are anything like me or old me, this can feel quite exhausting and overwhelming. Leaving you to procrastinate.  Causing a shit ton of anxiety. Making decisions wasn’t always easy for me.  I used to agonize over them.  It would keep me up at night and distract me from getting any real work done, and leave me without any energy for my own self care. When I started coaching I knew this was something that needed to be addressed.   So I went to work on it. Today I still practice this work all the f’ing time. In today’s episode I am going to give you a peek into the concept of, Decisions Dominance” that I created to help me make decisions.  So if you are struggling with making decisions right now or ever, this episode is for you.

Fearing Hunger
If I let myself get hungry I’ll eat everything in sight.  Yup, you are probably going to eat yourself into a coma right? Sounds ridiculous but it’s so often what our brains are telling us. The craziest part is you believe your brain. Why doesn’t your brain only want what’s best for you? Unfortunately not always. Your brain wants to keep you safe and comfortable. So when you are feeling hungry you are most likely also uncomfortable.  So you avoid it. You pick up the excuses you have heard from others like, overeating happens because you let yourself get too hungry.  So then you avoid it at all costs. It’s actually not true. I know for a fact every year on Yom Kippur I fast for about 24 hours and when I start eating, I don’t eat till I’m sick or till I’m in a coma. Why? Because I know how to stop when I’m full.  Actually I usually eat less because my stomach fills up quicker. The key is learning how to stop fearing hunger as the big bad scary wolf and learning how to eat til you're full and becoming more mindful of how you feel. The other part is to fully understand all the bs that your mind is going to serve up in the process and how to deal with it. In today’s podcast I am going to talk all about why there is no need to fear hunger and why it might be stalling your progress. Schedule your free mini session with Rachel today.  Click here.

Your Big Why
Have you ever contemplated why you want to lose weight or why you want to stop feeling anxious all the time? A lot of the time people will come to me and say because they want to feel more comfortable. But, what does that really mean?  Is that going to be enough to keep you out of the pantry after a really shitty day? Or is that alone going to keep you from yelling at your spouse when he’s not helping you?  Or keep you waking up early to mediate when you didn’t sleep well? Having a super powerful why is key if you want to lose the weight, stop yelling at everyone, feel less overwhelmed, and feel motivated on a daily basis. In today’s episode I am going to share my why and teach you an exercise that’s going to help you create your big why. Schedule a free 1:1 mini session with Rachel today.  Click here.

Processing Emotions
Processing emotions, does that sound scary or complicated? I used to think that because I didn’t understand what it really meant. Here’s my interpretation: Allowing a feeling to be in your body without resisting, avoiding or reacting. Just noticing it. Seems so simple right? It actually can be simple.  However I wouldn’t say it’s always easy. Choosing to feel discomfort goes against everything our primitive brains are wired for.  So, we don’t choose it, even though it is required to live a fully free life. Ironic right? If we want to be free, we have to do the exact opposite of what our brains want us to do.  We have to choose discomfort, avoid pleasure in the moment, and be willing to face fear. Our world has evolved since primitive time, so what was best for us then, isn’t necessarily best for us now. Today’s episode is all about processing pain so you can live free.  Which doesn’t mean happy all the time.  It just means living the human experience, feeling all the good and the bad.  Remember if we were happy all the time we wouldn’t even know it because we would have nothing to compare it to.

Creating Your Fail Plan
Do you have a fail plan? You know a plan of what you will say to yourself if you mess up. Or are you just letting your default brain serve up some thoughts??? If you're letting your default brain serve up thoughts, likely it’s just choosing thoughts to keep you comfortable. Comfortable thoughts aren’t likely going to get you closer to your goal.  Because often they sound something like this: Fuck I did it again.  It was inevitable that I would fail.
