Take Heartfelt Action

img_7165This week has felt like a wild roller coaster ride.  Emotions were running high with unforeseen twists and turns. It’s time to recenter. Let go of all negativity, dark energy, emotional walls and thoughts that do not serve the greater good.

Join in embracing our democracy. May we all come together and stand united to lift one another up. May our hearts remain open and filled with love, light, peace and hope. Let’s focus on what part each of us can play to make our home, community, state, country and world a better place.

The election is over, the reflection can begin.  Give yourself permission to be right where you are. Connect with your feelings. What have you learned about yourself and others through this experience?

Thoughts become things. Focus on the positive ones.  It takes practice. It’s a mindful choice. Each one of us can look within to determine if what we are putting out into the world is coming from a place of love or fear.  Are your words helpful or hurtful?

Take heartfelt action.  What can you do today to contribute towards the solution?  It can be on a small scale.  A random act of kindness goes a long way.  Listen to a friend who needs to be heard.  Smile at a stranger.  Check on an elderly neighbor.  Let a car in front of you during rush hour.  Hold the door for someone.  Let your loved ones know how much you love them.  Give a compliment.  Pay it forward.

The Knots Prayer

I discovered “The Knots Prayer” and was touched by it, so I’m sharing it with you. I am not a religious person and this is not a religious prayer.  I see this as a collection of words that bring some freedom from the negative thoughts and doubts we have at times. 

I have found that I find things at the right time. It helped me today and I hope it helps you to.

Here it is…

Dear God,

Please untie the knots that are in my mind,

…my heart and my life.

Remove the have nots,

…the can nots and the do nots that I have in my mind.

Erase the will nots, may nots, and might nots that find a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots, would nots and should nots that obstruct my life.

And most of all, dear God,

I ask that you remove from my mind my heart and my life all of the am nots that I have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough.

Amen

Life Beyond Cancer Program

Hearing the words “You have cancer” is a life changing moment that most of us never forget. First there is the initial shock, numbness, fear and range of emotions that take over. Most of our time is taken up by the tests, scans, surgeries, doctors appointments, calls to insurance companies, treatments, and more.  It all seems to happen so fast. For some of us, the day arrives when the results come back clean. “Your cancer is in remission.”

You are a cancer survivor. NOW What?

Life Beyond Cancer is a new chapter in your journey.  Your outlook on life has changed. You have been given another chance. Some cancer survivors feel confused and stuck.  Others feel empowered and eager to make changes and try new things.  Most of us are not sure how to move forward and live life beyond cancer.

As a cancer survivor, I understand first-hand what it is like to go through this journey. I’ve combined my cancer experience and life coaching skills to create the Life Beyond Cancer Program.

LIFE BEYOND CANCER COACHING PROGRAM – Group, Individual or Combo

This program is available for individuals, groups and as a combined program. It was created to help cancer survivors move forward to reach goals, follow dreams and discover what life beyond cancer really means. The Life Beyond Cancer Program is conducted through a series of coaching telephone calls, emails and coaching tools. You will find hope, strength, motivation and a safe space to share about where you are and where you want to be. Coaching will help you live life beyond cancer and get to where you want to be! If you are interested in learning more, please send an email to lifebeyondcancer@jenniferbridge.com.

Life Beyond Cancer GROUP Program
Cancer survivors understand one another. We can relate to the same feelings and emotions the cancer experience can bring up.  That’s why group coaching works! Group Coaching is conducted via teleconference calls between 5 – 10 people.  Each person in the group is sent a teleconference number and access code for the group coaching call in advance. There are three group coaching calls per month with various coaching tools and unlimited individual email. All calls are private and geared towards the combined goals and needs of the group. We are forming the next group NOW! Please send an email to lifebeyondcancer@jenniferbridge.com if you are interested in being a part of our group.

Life Beyond Cancer INDIVIDUAL Program
Some cancer survivors prefer individual coaching. Individual coaching is one-on-one.  It is conducted via telephone, with three coaching calls per month, various coaching tools and unlimited individual email. All calls are confidential and focus on the client’s agenda and needs.  Individual coaching works! Please send an email to lifebeyondcancer@jenniferbridge.com if you are interested in learning more about individual coaching and the Life Beyond Cancer Program.

Love or Fear?

“Non-resistance, non-judgement and non-attachment are the three aspects of true freedom and enlightened living.” ~Echart Tolle

What a powerful quote! When I first read this in A New Earth, I had to put the book down because it really struck me.  It has been said that we either come from a place of fear or love. When I come from a place of fear, I resist, judge and attach. It is so limiting and dark. Coming from a place of love allows me to open up my heart and see the unlimited possibilities all around. This is where the shift to awareness occurs and creation begins.

Are you coming from a place of love or fear?

 

From Cancer Survivor to Life Coach

One of the gifts I got from being a cancer survivor is a new perspective on life.  Life is full of changes and we never know where one path might lead. I learned how to face my fears and in turn found a deeper level of strength from within.  Through the scans, biopsies, doctor visits, tests, surgery, treatment and more I was not only surviving cancer, but I was also becoming a Life Coach.  Through the journey, I found the courage, motivation and empowerment to move forward in many areas of my life both personal and professional, including a new career path.

My prayers were answered and I got another chance to live my life. I’m a survivor of more than cancer.  I’m a survivor of life! As a Life Coach, I am able to use my own life experience when working with clients to guide them forward.  All of us have the answers within, but some find them easier and with greater clarity by working with a life coach.

Moving forward

That is some of the history behind what motivated me to face my fears, dive in and become a Life Coach.  I also started a blog called Thyroid Cancer SURVIVOR to share my journey from the cancer diagnosis to the cancer-free results.  Now it focuses on LIFE beyond cancer with inspirational posts.

Possibilities are only limited by our minds!

Warmly,
