While in the midst of living pieces of Radical Rebirth, I was still very deep in the middle of my dark night. I had a group coaching program and was very authentically and vulnerably showing up to share what my behind-the-scenes healing looked like in real time.
I was helping others face and heal their own wounds as I was healing mine. It was not unheard of in those moments to show up, after having just cried my eyes out, to share the lesson I was learning and implementing in my own life.
During that time, I was also using music to not only heal my own wounds and triggers, but to once again use my life as a teachable moment.
I shared songs and lyrics that were impacting me and then wrote through the lessons I was learning as a way of helping others in the coaching program to take my lessons and apply them to their own lives.
My “coaching through music” was a massive hit and the members always looked forward to new realizations and writing that came forward through my healing.
I’ve never made these public before – until now. Consider these the Radical Rebirth (and some of Book Two) B-sides.
“What’s your drug? What are you addicted to that perpetuates patterns in your life? What is your main trigger point? What illusion do you constantly see the world through? What story are you consistently projecting onto others?”
“Life is always working out for you even in the moments you swore you fucked up. Allow yourself to fall. Allow yourself to get back up. Allow yourself to be perfectly incomplete. Allow yourself to always be working on your masterpiece. It’s never done. You have your entire life to work on it and it never has to be perfect…ever.”
“I wanted to feel heard. I wanted to feel like my desires, my needs, my voice mattered. Who was I actually wanting that from? Me. I didn’t need him to hear me, I needed to hear myself.”
“In what areas of your life do you have a mask on? Where are you not letting others see you? Where are you hiding yourself? Where are you afraid to be seen? How is it showing up and reflecting back to you in other areas of your life?”
“No matter what did or didn’t happen, love yourself enough to start saying “yes” to yourself before anyone else. Love yourself enough to upset others if the alternative is risking your own happiness and sanity. Love yourself enough to do the things that others don’t understand if in your heart it feels right. Love yourself enough to not live up to the expectations of others. “
