First Stepper – Reflections that transform Life Lessons into Goals and Fulfillment

Happy new year to one and all!

2017 came and went with a gush of wind. It is crazy but hey we are already in the beginnings of January 2018. And the first full moon of the year has already been in sight. Wow.

  • So how do you plan to go about your year ahead?
  • Do you have a plan?
  • What are your goals?
  • What precious insights from 2017 are you bringing with you to ensure that no mistakes are repeated, and lessons translate into goals manifestation?

If you are as impatient as I am, then I would suspect you are in a hurry to jump right into action, and do the first random thing that comes to mind. Resist the temptation. I repeat.

RESIST THE TEMPTATION.

I call this post/episode the 2018 Blockbuster Part 1 because this is the first of a two part series, where I will share how you can make 2018 a most spectacular blockbuster of a year for you, by setting it up right, from the start.

award-2969422_1920

To be honest with you, even though I did my Vision Board for 2017, and because of that I had a pretty good idea what I wanted for the year.

While I also create some powerful tools to help extend my vision board into daily life, there were still parts from my vision board that did not manifest.

One of the reasons was because I did not deliberately reflect on the lessons learnt from the previous year, and include that into my goals and plans for the new year.

This year,

I refuse to repeat mistakes
that can be avoided.

With a little patience.

That is why I am making

First Stepper,
Reflections that transform Life Lessons into Goals and Fulfillment

free for you.

1st Stepper 3D

WHY?

Because my 2018 prayer for you is that you start your year not by seeking what’s outside of yourself. But that

you begin your journey
by going inwards.

By doing so, you will naturally gravitate authentically to what your heart is looking for.

Remember, the first step to what’s worthy is towards your heart. And

anything that takes you away from your heart robs you from true living.

Besides that being my prayer for you, how would pausing a moment to reflect help to supercharge your year?

1. Lessons from the past

Reflecting helps you to learn from the past, and cement the lessons from your experiences.

2. Avoid repeated mistakes.

There is a saying that says the first time you make a mistake, it is an accident. The second time you make the same mistake, it is on purpose. The third time you make that same mistake, it is no longer a mistake. It is a habit.

Mistake, intention or habit, you choose.

3. Gain insights

One precious gem about reflecting on the mistakes that we have made is that it gives us a deeper insight into something we have not noticed before. Or a different perspective on things that can become a game changer for us.

4. Pass it on

Reflecting allows us to share the lessons from our mistakes with others so that they don’t have to go the hard trodden road that we already did. Sharing is caring. Why reinvent the wheel?

5. Happiness in a can

Reflecting does not only apply to the negative episodes in our lives. It also extends to the happy experiences we have. Reflecting increases the joy we have gleaned from these experiences, and reminds us how to have more of it in our lives. It’s happiness in a can! 🙂

6. Sparks your creativity

Often times, when we reflect deeply on what has happened, the other possibilities that could have happened if things were done differently, you will suddenly have an intuitive hit! Creativity is heightened in your reflective state. Sparks can fly!

7. Know Thyself

Aristotle once said,

‘Knowing yourself is the
beginning of all wisdom.’

What better way than to reflect on your past feelings, thoughts and actions? 🙂

Reflection.

This is the Part 1 of your blockbuster magic tool. Using reflections from lessons learnt in 2017 to transform into 2018 goals and fulfillment.

Are you ready to activate your first blockbuster magic tool?

fantasy-2879946_1920

First Stepper is a free program which is Step 1 of a 12 Steps Goal Setting Program called Let’s Step! I am giving it free, to encourage you to use the power of reflections, to create a more meaningful and laser focused 2018 for yourself.

Let’s Step! Goal Setting Program has three Focus Areas to it, and each area has four steps to it. Given that First Stepper is part of Focus Area 1, I will just briefly share about the goal of Focus Area 1 of Let’s Step!

The goal of Focus Area 1 is to guide you to a place of raised awareness and clarity through

  • Reflecting the realization and wisdom that the recent past has to offer,
  • Defining the desired areas for change and for excellence,
  • Establishing powerful reinforcement structures, to ensure the highest possibility for the fulfillment of the goals you declared.

So speaking of reinforcement structures, as step 1 of Let’s Step! Program, First Stepper is the first reinforcement structure set in place, using the power of reflection.

American philosopher and psychologist John Dewey says,

“We do not learn from experience…
we learn from REFLECTING on experience.”

hairdresser-2812229_1920

The positive effects on reflection was confirmed by a research done by the Harvard Business School indicating that

Dedicating time to reflect on your life and work regularly have an affect on performance.

Enters First Stepper, Reflections that transform Life Lessons into Goals and Fulfillment. 🙂

So before you dash off clueless into the the year, let’s take some time to reflect on how the last twelve months have been for you. The yeahs!, the eeeeks!, the should haves, the shouldn’t haves, and so on.

Let’s reflect and see what gems you can learn from it. By doing so, you can be sure that

when it’s time to set goals, you are doing it with crystal clarity.

crystal-1685590_1920

You can be confident that when you have reached your goal, it is truly what you wanted because you took the extra crucial step to reflect, before setting your goal for the year.

Here, I will take you briefly through some of the questions in First Stepper that you can reflect on, with some personal examples to help you along.

However, you are encouraged to take First Stepper properly, and put yourself in a quiet environment where you can write down your answers, and do a proper full-fledged reflection.

In the last 12 months, what have been your greatest pride in work, family & friends, and personal development?

celebration-2803271_1920

Personal development can be in the mental, physical and spiritual sense. It can also be however you are comfortable to define it. It’s your reflection piece for yourself! 🙂

As for me, one of my deepest satisfaction for 2017 was the unexpected creation of Shakti on Fire Podcast. It was a natural extension of my book, From Zero to Shakti.

It was borne out of a desire to expand the conversations in the book further, revolving around themes such as self compassion, forgiveness, courage and authenticity.

Imagine you are being featured on the cover page of TIME magazine, what would it say about you? How would it describe you?

Are you satisfied with that? If not, write down what you would have preferred instead.

press-1248661_1920

If I were featured in TIME magazine, I would like to be described as the trailblazer for Shaktis empowering the world. It best summarized my One Million Shaktis, Three Million Sparks dream.

SOF Pledge

What closure or completion from the last 12 months would you want to focus on finishing up in the next 12 months in terms of work, family & friends, and personal development?

puzzle-2500333_1920

What are the sacrifices you would be required to make, in order to make the completion mentioned in your previous answer?

What are the qualities you will need to cultivate in yourself in order to support the completion required?

E.g. Patience, Focus, Creativity.

For me, I will need to have endurance to stay the course, when things get tough. I need to cultivate a sense of initiative, taking the first step. In order to do that, I also need to manage my fear, that stops me from taking action.

I also need to have self awareness to manage my negative self talk and excuses, whenever it arises.

What is the worst thing that can happen if you do not complete what you set out to do?

people-2597622_1920

Imagine that you have achieved your goal(s), how would you feel? How does it mean to you? What are the implications?

What was most exciting/satisfying about the last 12 months?

  • What were you doing?
  • Who were you with?
  • Why was it exciting?
  • What would be ONE word you would use to describe how you feel about it?

mountain-bike-2706904_1920

Going for my first bachata bootcamp in SILF was a huge accomplishment for me. Especially since I went into it thinking that it was a beginners bootcamp! I was petrified and utterly stressed out to be on stage performing in the front line in front of dancers. I was far from perfect but I did it. 🙂

I felt EXHILARATED!

If this is something that you would like to have more of, how would you want it to be better?

  • Or bring it to the next level?
  • What’s next?

What was most regrettable about the last 12 months?

  • What were you doing?
  • Who did it affect?
  • Why was it regrettable?
  • What would be ONE word you would use to describe how you feel about it?

If you were given a second chance, what are some of the things that you could have done differently in the last 12 months?

I would have made time to learn and experiment on how to be a better and more active listener. I would have researched on how I can make that happen, and actively practice and apply what I have learnt. I think it would have made great difference in my relationships with people.

What is the greatest learning lesson(s) you have gained from the last 12 months?

How would you translate that learning into your life? What practical steps will you take moving forward?

Looking at the last 12 months, when did you allow fear and doubts to hold you back from getting what you wanted?

woman-2924698_1920.png

What would you have done differently?

What was non-inspiring/dreadful for you about the last 12 months?

How do you intend to change it for the next 12 months?

  • Remove it?
  • Adjust it?
  • Replace it?

In three words, describe the person that you were for the last 12 months.

chicken-2825101_1920

My three words are learner, achiever, artiste.

In three words, describe the person that you are going to be in the next 12 months.

My three words are learner, influencer, artiste.

What is the difference, if any? Why the difference?

climate-change-2085527_1280

How are you going to materialize the difference?

If you have been seriously answering these questions meditatively and thoroughly, well done!

Congratulations, you are definitely on your way to transform precious life lessons learnt in 2017 into meaningful goals for 2018, that will led to immense satisfaction and fulfillment for you.

So take a deep breath, sleep over it too if you want to before coming back to review all that you have written.

From there, see what arises for you. New insights, goals and aspirations for the new year. Write it all down.

Listen to your heart.

Hold on to these precious notes for you will need them for the

next post/episode where I will reveal Blockbuster Part II.

Thank you for taking the time with me to reflect on your 2017 life lessons. I find the idea that I will not be repeating mistakes I made in 2017, because I made time to learn from it already very satisfying.

Sometimes the way to move forward is to move backwards. And

Sometimes the fastest way
is to move slow.

Start 2018 with clarity and purpose.

Leaving you with this beautiful quote from Rumi.

1st-Stepper-3D.png

GRAB YOUR FIRST STEPPER HERE!

In the cycles of our lives, there will be some beginnings that seem bubbling with beautiful promises. There is a delicious air of anticipation.

While it is definitely well and good to be motivated, with the exciting pulse  of new possibilities, it is vital to remind ourselves that

nothing happens without

intention and commitment.

Oh, what a downer. But it isn’t. It means you get to play. Take out the blank canvas and dream.

  • What medium would you like to use?
  • What would you like to draw?
  • What kind of colour would you be using?

Possibilities are infinite.

The blank space is inviting you to

fill it up with what inspires you.

This is exactly how I view vision boards. They are such a powerful tool to employ in the beginning of the year, or in a new phase of your life. You engage your mind and your senses, to decide what are your goals for the way forward.

Investigate what inspires you, and is worth your time and effort. You prioritize them, and declare it on your vision board.

As I started working on mine,

I just got more and more energized.

There is so much power in putting down on paper what was till that point, merely drifting thoughts in my mind.

I observed the same response from my clients. As I guide them to imagine, and to claim what they want to be theirs,

their eyes sparkled.

It was so intoxicating for me to watch someone else weave their dreams into their vision board. Truly magical.

When it was all done, I heaved a sigh of relief and contentment. It felt like a huge brain dump. Except that what I was releasing, were very pleasing things that were close to my heart.

As I look intently at my vision board in its entirety, my heart started to sing. It was almost too much to bear, to gaze at all that I desire at one glance. I felt true soul magic at work.

I also felt the newfound determination

to see it to its completion.

One of my clients thanked me after our vision board magic session, and shared that it had helped her resolve a lingering dilemma for the last two weeks. She was considering a study bond from her company, which was a very crucial step for her. But she had reservations and doubt.

In the course of drawing out her intentions for her work onto her vision board, she suddenly realized that the answer from her heart was a yes.

All the fears and concerns that had kept her immobile all these time, melted away.

Such vision board magic!

The way I do my vision board is radically different from the usual vision boards out there. My version of vision board comes from years of trials and error.

I did not want to just create yet another vision board for the new year, without acknowledging the parts that didn’t work for me the year before. I also wanted to make sure that my vision board is a board that works, with visions manifested.

Hence, together with my own observations and feedback from my clients, Vision Board Magic (VBM) was born.

The potent secret ingredients in VBM adds an alchemical element to the vision board, that helps it to become more accessible in daily life. After all, you can’t go everywhere with your vision board.

But what’s the use of a vision board that does not weave its magic in your daily life, to manifest what’s on it?

Vision Board Magic – Magic Amplification.

Today, I will share two of these potent ingredients of Vision Board Magic. When these ingredients are thrown into the pot, it will change a pretty picture board on your wall, to a board that works and visions that manifest.

Before we move in that direction, I want to make it clear what vision board is and more importantly, what vision board is NOT. That will ensure that your vision board is created with conviction, and delusions-free.

  1. Vision board is NOT a magic pill.

    Just because you made time to create a most beautiful vision board, does not mean that it will now automatically manifest by iteself. Tough luck Shakti but you need to commit, and do the actual work to ground your goals into reality.

    Your vision board is the modest seed that you have embedded into the soil. It is not the blossoming plant. You actually need to water it, care for it, and give consistent time and attention for the beautiful flowers, that is waiting to bloom.

  2. Vision board is a magnifier.

    Your vision board not only activates your goals, and it is brought to the forefront of your conscious mind. It reveals to you where to focus your attention, and what to look out for in your daily life.

    In doing so, it magnifies your visions powerfully on the energetic level. A compound effect is generated towards your goals, your efforts and your intentions.

    The more you act on your vision board, the faster you snowball towards your desired outcomes. The law of synchronicity is also activated. You start to attract ‘coincidences’.

  3. Vision board is not for the chicken-hearted.

    The Cambridge dictionary defines vision as the ability to imagine how a country, society, industry, etc. could develop in the future and to plan for this.I repeat, and … to … plan … for … it. That is what you are doing with your vision board, something a chicken is unable to do.

    A chicken does not aspire to be an eagle, it doesn’t even spend much time looking up! It is busy pecking for food. Neither does it have the notion to admire the sunset or the sunrise.

    Vision boards are for people who have the guts to dream, to visualize a desired future for themselves. Who is willing to have the faith, even if they cannot see the path ahead, at the moment.

    In short, vision boards are meant for visionaries.

    Are you a visionary?

Alright, now that we have that clarity and reality-check, it is time to reveal two of my Vision Board Magic secrets to you.

Are you ready?

Vision Board Magic Secret Ingredients

1. A Vision Board Magic is a Being Board.

  • Have you ever created vision boards before?
  • Have you ever looked back at your board one year later, and wondered ‘why on earth was that goal on my board?
  • Have you ever achieved what was on your board, and then felt disappointed, because it did not satisfy you at all?

The antidote is to think of your vision board as a representation of your BE-ingness. It is not about what you want to do, what you want to have, etc.

It is about who you are BE-ing.

Which area of your BEing-ness are you focusing on this new year or this new phase of your life?

What was put on your board might be things that you thought would made you happy. But it didn’t. I thought long and hard about it after reviewing my own board.

Then, it struck me like a bolt of lightning. Because I was focusing on the wrong thing. I asked myself what kind of board would I like to make moving forward, that will not repeat this sense of dissatisfaction again.

I realized I was moving in the opposite direction. Instead of being so occupied with what I want to achieve, what I want to have,

I should be focused on WHO I want TO BE.

I wanted

to create vision boards that

satisfy my last breath with a smile.

I suspect that I do not really care what I own or achieved in that moment, in my last breath. I WILL care about how I have lived my life and used up all my energy to be the kind of person I want to be.

What better insurance for that

than your vision board?

Provided you are committed to your Vision Board of course.

That was a real game-changer for me. So now the heart of my vision board comes from who I want to be, and it branches out to what that means in terms of the activities I will engage in, the projects that I will take up, the possessions I want to work towards, the  commitments I will make, etc.

All of which, will express that kind of ‘last-breath satisfaction’ for me.

2. Know Your Why

“He who has a why to live for

can bear almost any how.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche

Another element that you will not find in other vision boards, is the why. We all know about the why, Simon Sinek got everyone into a frenzy with it.

And, rightly so.

If knowing your why is so crucial,

then why is your why

not on your vision board?

Vision Board Magic includes the all-important-why on your vision board. Again, this was added based on observing my own behavior. I noted that there were times when I felt a sense of dread looking at my vision board.

It reminded me of the amount of work I needed to put in to make things happen, and all the things I have not done yet. Why was I feeling dread?

Because I have forgotten about my why.

What is the simplest solution?

Include your Why in your Vision Board Magic! It’s your vision board so put it in any way that makes sense to you. Make sure that it is clearly visible.

The toe pads of geckos contain tiny hair-like structures called setae, which helps it to stick to surfaces so it does not fall.

The Why on your board is one of the several setae in Vision Board Magic, that helps your vision board sticks to your daily life. 

In your stressful or tiring moments, looking at the why on your board will energize and refocus your energy and attention. Split-second re-calibration.

Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it”
― Gautama Buddha.

The Being-ness of a Vision Board Magic does exactly that. It helps you define your purpose, and to give your whole heart and soul to that purpose by translating it into the sub-branches in your vision board.

Thank you for reading.

Aligning Intention and Emotions with Your Energetic Heart

  1. The Heart

1A. The Physical Heart

When you first manifest into physical being, you started off as a cell (sphere). You start by multiplying inwards, before expanding outwards. Then it becomes what is known as the Egg of Life as a Star Tetrahedron.

A Star Tetrahedron is 8 cells, which is considered the basis of the 8 major chakras in our body. As it keeps expanding, the heart becomes the first organ of your body, to appear in physical reality.

1B. The Heart’s Electromagnetic Field

Both the brain and the heart are electromagnetic generators. However, the electromagnetic field of the heart is way more powerful than that of the brain. The heart is 100 times electronically stronger and up to 5,000 magnetically stronger than the brain.

Serious heart-blowing stuff!

Together they make up the reality that we live in, electrical and magnetic = electromagnetic field.

The electromagnetic field of the heart not only has a profound effect around the human body, but also on its surroundings.

The heart’s signals have a
profound effect on the brain.

1C. HeartMath Institute (HMI)

The nonprofit HeartMath Institute is an organization with over 19 years of research on the physiology of stress, emotions and the connections between the heart and the brain. Their studies have revolutionized the way we can live.

The spaces between the heartbeat is called the Heart Rate Variability (HRV). Regardless of whether we are healthy or otherwise, our hearts beat irregularly.

By understanding the way our hearts are beating, we glean a better understanding on our adaptability to our environments.

If new input from the environment causes you tension, e.g. your partner picking a fight with you, it will show up in your heart rate as a volatile chaotic mess.

So what are the implications here?

  • Firstly, HRV shows your physiological resilience (Functional ability to cope with stress).
  • Secondly, it indicates your degree of behavioral flexibility (Behavioral adaptability to situations).

HeartMath Institute  (HMI) has found that one of the factors that affect our heart changing rhythm is …. our feelings and emotions! When our varied heart rate is plotted over time, the overall shape of the waveform is called the heart rhythm pattern.

The emotions that we are feeling directly impacts our heart rhythm pattern, which reveal to us how our body is functioning.

2. EMOTIONS

2A. Negative Emotions

Negative emotions such as anger, frustration causes the heart pattern to be chaotic and jagged. Physiologically speaking, it indicates that the heart is not harmonious with itself.

It’s like trying to run on the treadmill on an uphill terrain, with a sprained ankle. It is inefficient and unproductive. Not to mention, potentially harmful and dangerous for the body too.

Similarly, when negative emotions arises, it also causes our body to function in an inefficient and unproductive manner. It uses up all our internal resources, and causes rapid wear and tear to our system.

The problem escalates if you are experiencing these negative emotions frequently, or for an extended period of time.

2B. Positive Emotions

On the other hand, when we experience uplifting emotions, our heart rhythm pattern becomes highly ordered, smooth and harmonious. Our wave forms start to imitate that of a rainbow or uplifting music.

That’s when we are aligned with a more efficient body system. We also connect better with others, with Mother Nature, and with our environment. The interaction is harmonious and synchronistic.

3. Emotional Self-Regulation

Studies by HMI has shown that maintaining positive emotions shifts the entire body system. This phenomenon is known scientifically as psychophysiological coherence.

Woah what a big word! Let’s break it down.

  • Psycho = psychological meaning mental and emotions
  • Physiological = physical body
  • Coherence = ‘systematic connections’ = harmony
  • Therefore, psychophysiological coherence = Harmony between body, mind and emotions

The Heartmath quick coherence technique can be used to balance thoughts and emotions, you can achieve energy, mental clarity and feel better.

Otherwise, you can focus on any kind of breathworks, to generate psychophysiological coherence.

Why?

Because your breathing is intimately connected
with your heart.

3A. Breathwork

So if ever you find yourself in a place of mental or emotional chaos, work on

  1. Your breathing, and on
  2. Generating positive, loving emotions.

  • Focus on your heart as you do long and deep breathing.
  • Recall a loving moment from the past, or
  • think of your pet or loved ones, or
  • a beautiful place in Nature,
  • and generate feelings of love, gratitude and appreciation.

In the field of neurocardiology, scientists have discovered that the heart possesses its own intrinsic nervous system, a network of brain cells with over 40,000 neurons.

What does that mean?

It means that the heart has the ability to independently sense and process information. It can make decisions, and even learn and remember. It is an intelligence system in and of itself. In short,

YES! You can think with your heart!

4. Heart and Emotions

Studies have shown that the heart is the key component of the emotional system. The heart not only responds to emotions, but the signals it sends out dramatically affects the quality of the emotion experienced from moment to moment.

Our heart is vital in
accessing our intuition.

Contrary to popular beliefs, the real boss is our heart and not our brain. The brain receive orders from our heart, rather than our heart taking orders from our brain.

4A. Healing of Trapped Emotions

When your negative emotions run wild, you will lose the ability to think clearly, remember lessons, reason and make effective decisions.

That is why it is important not only to be mindful to not allow negative emotions to take control of the present moment, it is also crucial for us to process and release negative emotions from the past, that is still influencing our thoughts, beliefs and behaviors, hindering our goals and intentions.

There are plenty of ways that you can do that. You can do psychotherapy, meditation, journaling and energy healing, just to name a few.

For example, Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) identifies the negative memories, thoughts and feelings from the past. These thoughts are processed and released through the use of essential oils in a 12 steps psychotherapy process.

Emotion Code does that by identifying and releasing the trapped emotions, by communicating with your subsconscious mind.

5. Intention

Intention is the seed of all dreams and desires. It is the driving force behind the fruition of our wants and needs.

The classic Vedic text known as the Upanishads declares,

“You are what your
deepest desire is.
As your desire is,
so is your intention.
As your intention is,
so is your will.
As your will is,
so is your deed.
As your deed is,
so is your destiny.”

An intention directs your consciousness, your will, your mind and your personal power into a specific direction.

By aligning with your heart, connecting with the feelings stirred by your desire, and committing to inspired actions, you nurture your intention, like a seed into the humble beginnings of a seedling, that can grow and flourish.

6. Aligning Intention and Emotions with Your Energetic Heart

So just for a moment, imagine this. By using breathwork, slow down your hectic mind, and connect with your heart.  Generate uplifting feelings and the expanding sensation of gratitude.

From that powerful place of peace and coherence, set an intention that you want to manifest into the world. Using the power of your energetic heart and your daily inspired actions,

What of your heart desires
would you be able to manifest?

Hope this post helps inspired you to set a heart aligned intention for the brand new year ahead.

What can Narrative Therapy do for me?

We have all heard of the rather controversial hypnotherapy, and perhaps even the very successful cognitive behavior therapy. Even arts and movement therapy.

But narrative therapy?

What could that be?

Therapy revolving around stories?

If that was your thought process, you are absolutely right on the mark! 🙂 Narrative Therapy was developed during the 1970s and 1980s, by Australian social worker Michael White and David Epston of New Zealand.

According to Alice Morgan’s influential and highly popular text, What is narrative therapy? An easy-to-read introduction, Narrative Therapy can be about one of the following:

  • Particular ways of understanding people’s identities.
  • Certain ways of understanding problems and their effects on people’s lives.
  • Particular ways of talking with people about their lives and problems they may be experiencing, or
  • Particular ways of understanding therapeutic relationships and the ethics or politics of therapy.

The goal of narrative therapy Narrative Therapy is to be a

respectful, non-blaming approach

to counselling and community work, which centres

people as the experts in their own lives.

PRINCIPLES AND ASSUMPTIONS

1. EXTERNALIZATION

“In narrative treatment, problems are considered to be outside forces
that enter people’s lives and rewrite the basic text of who they are. ”

– Paquin, 2009:92

The beauty of externalization is that

  • it creates space for people to be able to explore new and different perspective on the issue.
  • Without the ‘blame’ conversation, it helps to ease the conflict in interpersonal relationships, in families and in the communities.
  • it avoids the problem of clients personalizing the problem, creating serious disempowering self identities and self esteem.
  • it enables a real conversation ABOUT the problem, rather than from a crippling ‘I’ perspective.

2. MULTI-STORIED LIVES

Stories are how we relate to one another, and how we create meaning for our lives. It is rich with information of the wide and varied lived experiences of our lives.

Just like we can define our main life story revolving around the fact that we were given up by our parents and adopted and therefore, a worthless individual. We can also frame our dominant story as one who rose from rags to riches, and hence a determined and successful individual .

Micheal White and David Epston (1990) explored the idea of a multi-storied version of life. That enables flexibility in the interpretations of what a person might be and defied a singular definition of a person.

3. YOU ARE THE EXPERT OF YOUR LIFE

Your narrative therapist/coach will approach your sessions with the belief that

you are the expert of your life.

Not them.

You are already skillful and competent in resolving your issues.

You inherently possess the necessary values, beliefs, skills, knowledge and abilities to manage your challenges. Your narrative therapist/coach is a non-judgmental collaborator who helps you address the problem, and to co-author a more nurturing story.

Narrative Therapy guides a person to

  • Identify their values,
  • Identify the skills, knowledge and abilities (unique qualities) that they have displayed in the past or current when undergoing hardship
  • Investigate the history of the unique qualities
  • Challenge the current dominant discourse (problem story) that is destructive
  • Co-author a more nurturing discourse to replace the problem story.

There is so much power and liberation from re-writing a disempowering stories. You will see how I rewrote my story and my sense of identity in my autobiography book, From Zero to Shakti. The title of the book says it all. 🙂

I have also experienced the power of re-authoring using Narrative Therapy and many other modalities. But

the commitment to stay
the course is vital.

Re-authoring your story also means that first and foremost, we need to discover what is the dominant story that you have been living with. While it is very apparent for some people, it is not so for others.

It is so deeply ingrained in the unconscious mind, some people have absolutely no clue.

It doesn’t matter which category you belong to,

what matters is that you begin.

That is why I created the Story SMASH!er Coaching Program that using Narrative Therapy, Aroma Freedom Technique, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, mindfulness and a whole lot of other good stuff to give you an all-rounded support in this exciting re-authoring journey. It will radically transform your life.

If you are feeling something inside, that is prompting you to experiment with Narrative Therapy, then

grab the free
Life Story Plot exercise.

It will give you a first hand taste of how NT can powerfully help you to wear a more empowering lens in life, and to reset how you feel about yourself.

Remember,

you are the light.
Seek it from within.

Be well dear one, please take a look at the Story SMASH!er Program or even the 14 Days Aroma Freedom Technique Challenge, if you want to do inner work together with pure essentials oil.

And of course, I’m here for you for coaching/therapy as always.

Be kind to yourself.

3. MOVEMENT GROUNDING

Being one of the first to start a pole dancing studio in Singapore in 2005, I have seen and experienced personally, the power of movement as a potent self-revitalizing tool.

While intellectually, you may have engaged in the conversation, and logically came to your conclusions, these precious insights are not grounded in your body .
Mentally you ‘get’ it, but your body don’t.

Ever ‘understood’ something and yet, did not feel it or lost motivation for it afterwards?

Hence, we need to involve your physical being, into the coaching conversation.

This ensures that the insights, the commitment and the inspired action are now in complete alignment with your entire being.

That’s when true personal Shakti happens.

We will use your natural movement

  • To celebrate the awakening of your Shakti-self and
  • To ensure that what you have explored during the coaching session is also acknowledged and affirmed by your body.
  • To cements your body*mind*spirit alignment to your goals.

P.s. NO dancing experienced required. Your body will surprise you how it comes alive. Stay receptive. 🙂

“I was immediately struck by Joy’s vibrant energy.
She is a compassionate person with a quick mind,
and I found her coaching to be skillful and intuitive.

If you ever need coaching, I would recommend her:
not only will she help sort you out,
she will be your cheerleader every step of the way!”

Shakti on Fire (SOF) Walk the Talk, An Open-Hearted Walk with Joy

~ FOR WOMEN ~

Hello there,

My name is Joy.

I am an ICF accreditated life coach, with a BA in psycholgy, and trained in Choice Theory/Reality Therapy.

Recently, I wrote a book, From Zero to Shakti.

It is about my life story, of how depression and a sense of loneliness and unworthiness have occupied a big part of my life. And the multiple inauthentic relationships that I have allowed myself to go through.

So yes, I have been there.

In fact, that is why I underwent all the years of psychology and coaching training that I did.

So that I can help others who are going through similar situations.

Based on the Singapore Mental Health Study conducted in 2010 by Institute of Medical Health, as many as 1 in 17 people have suffered from Major Depressive Disorder at some time in their life.

We can stop this modern day phenomenon.

By taking early steps in taking care of our mental health. And those of our loved ones.

What’s Your Story Workshop based on Choice Theory and From Zero to Shakti

I cannot be more thrilled that my book was given a chance to have a smashing start. To be invited once again by Young Women Leadership Connection (YWLC) to do a talk for a women shelter is the most perfect beginning for my book.

One year ago, when I was invited to do a motivational talk for the same shelter, I was a brand new baby life coach. I was nervous about sharing my personal story and I did not know where to begin.

So I decided to share the three precious truths that I have learnt in my path to self-healing and empowerment. I had a powerpoint and a very able friend/trained counselor to back me up.

It was messy because of the various interpretations required due to language barrier. Otherwise,

it was a soulful success.

Everyone got something valuable out of our time together.

Fast forward one year later, same story. This time, backed up by Choice Theory, role plays preparation, another able assistant/trained Choice Theory practitioner and my book, From Zero to Shakti.

Wow, how things have changed.

Same story,

more powerful storytelling style.

We got off on a nice start, with everyone warming up at the self introduction segment. The atmosphere had a nose dive from the moment we showed the book video.

It was intentional.

This is not going to be a feel-good ra-ra talk. It was designed to be

a tough love, reality check workshop.

It was challenging, as we navigate through the emotional ups and downs of our audience.

But it worked. Sure, there were some tears, even mini breakdowns. But it was clear,

the message hit home.

All that was suppressed and hidden rose quickly to the surface.

To be healed and in time, addressed.

Based on the feedback we got and what was shared on the success board, there was no shadow of doubt, it was another impactful session. This year,

more potent than ever.

We left

with our hearts overflowing.

Proud of our work and most of all,

proud of the women who showed up and

showed their broken hearts to be healed.

Pure magic this morning.

FROM PARTICIPANTS IN THE WORKSHOP

From a thoughtful mother

From the youngest participant, a 15 years old who wrote,

‘Today I learnt to manage my emotions.’

FROM THE WOMEN FROM YOUNG WOMEN LEADERSHIP CONNECTION

I am grateful. For the work that I do. And I will do it more passionately from henceforth, for the priceless abundance I receive, every time I stepped into the arena. In the name of love.

She is a compassionate person with a quick mind, and I found her coaching to be skillful and intuitive.

If you ever need coaching, I would recommend you see her: not only will she help sort you out, she will be your cheerleader every step of the way!”
– Rimi Yoshida
