This is What Fierce Self Love Looks Like (P.S. It Ain’t Easy) http://www.shawnphelps.com/2017/07/17/fierce-self-love-looks-like-p-s-aint-easy/ Mon, 17 Jul 2017 16:32:31 +0000 http://www.shawnphelps.com/?p=5690 Maybe some of you will relate to the story I’m about to share. Sometimes, when you get too comfortable, too set in your ways, the Universe turns your life upside down and inside out as a gift, to shake you up and help you remember who you really ARE.

Ignoring Stuff Feels Shitty; Get Deliberate Instead http://www.shawnphelps.com/2016/10/14/ignoring-stuff-feels-shitty-get-deliberate-instead/ Fri, 14 Oct 2016 22:08:49 +0000 http://www.shawnphelps.com/?p=5561 Being deliberate is a tool that helps us access the higher parts of ourselves. Often we feel helpless. But we can take our power back by being deliberate about our choices in any situation.

Want to Fix Yourself and Others? Try This Instead http://www.shawnphelps.com/2016/10/07/wanna-fix-yourself-and-others/ http://www.shawnphelps.com/2016/10/07/wanna-fix-yourself-and-others/#comments Fri, 07 Oct 2016 21:25:20 +0000 http://www.shawnphelps.com/?p=5538 If you want to help someone, don't spout spiritual platitudes at them like "just be in the now". Show up and listen with genuine empathy and unconditional love. Share your own vulnerabilities so they know they're not alone. We cannot "fix" or heal people.

When you first feel called to grow something new, it's scary.

You know in your heart that your old garden is no longer enough for you. But now what?

They are the raw ingredient for your greatest experiences yet to come. Without them, it would not even be possible for you to have greater experiences.

Do You Call Yourself Lazy for Resting? (A Missive About Self Care) http://www.shawnphelps.com/2016/08/12/do-you-call-yourself-lazy/ Fri, 12 Aug 2016 23:12:26 +0000 http://www.shawnphelps.com/?p=5424 I think of my body as a fun vehicle I've been given to experience my life with. I imagine myself as a Kia Soul, unique and quirky but practical and useful, a little slow to get up to speed but dependable once I get going. And I remember from when I had my own (actual) car that if I don't change the oil, get it rustproofed, wash it and take loving care of it, the car begins dragging and breaking down. It gets old before its time. It can support me only as long as I support it.

A Dream Needs a Plan and a Deadline http://www.shawnphelps.com/2016/07/07/a-dream-needs-plan-and-deadline/ Fri, 08 Jul 2016 03:03:01 +0000 http://www.shawnphelps.com/?p=5378 After a lifetime of studying the psyche + a couple decades of daily meditation + a ton of other inner work, I've become amazing at helping other people live their highest potential. And yet I'm still just a baby learning to crawl when it comes to getting the basic, everyday, unsexy stuff done that will move my own business, and my bigger goals and dreams, forward.
