Why Is It So Hard To Ask For Help?
Today Michele and I have a heart to heart discussion about why it's so darn hard to ask for help. Why is that? Is this a fairly new phenomenon or something that's been around for a long time but we're just now talking about it? Could it be cultural? No matter what the reasons there seem to be many reasons why it's so hard to ask for help!!! Clinical psychologist, Dr. Ellen Hendriksen states that "Asking for help can turn the most self-assured, square-shouldered among us into a nail-biting mess. We may cast about vague wishes to no one in particular, blame others for our woes, or procrastinate until our problem has become an emergency. You’d think asking for help would be preferable to all this misery, but taking action is tough for almost everyone." Why is that? Some of the things we discussed are: People love to help others! We fear to admit that we're out of control. Maybe you'll fear of being indebted or owing a favor? Do you fear to look weak? Maybe you are afraid of rejection... We have such an interesting discussion for you today!!!

EMOTIONAL RESOLUTION with Cedric Bertelli
Cedric Bertelli is the founder and director of the Emotional Health Institute. He began his training in Emotional Resolution in 2009 in France. Cedric grew up in a tiny village in France with a population of 80 and always suffered from anxiety. Later he became a well known culinary expert for the Ritz Carlton Hotels. Currently, he is an expert in emotional health using the Emotional Resolution method. I'm in awe of what he's been able to accomplish in 10 short years! At the core of Emotional Resolution is the belief that we are all born with the physiological ability to resolve our own emotions permanently. Most of us go through life, knowing we have difficulties and try various ways to meet them head-on. We all have tried many forms such as self-help techniques, professional help, or even self-medication. These may help for a time but only until there is another trigger to set the pattern back into motion. Triggers lead to disruptive emotional patterns: anger, stress, jealousy, phobias, anxiety, shame, avoidance, only to name a few. According to Bertelli, "Neuroscientists are beginning to understand that the body is wired to permanently resolve dysfunctional and negative emotional patterns... if we only allow it to do its natural job!" This is a fascinating discussion I know you don’t want to miss!

32 - Kelli Reese Her Mission to Motivate, Empower and Inspire Women
Kelli Reese is on a mission to motivate, empower and inspire women to be brave and live the life their soul is calling for. Kelli is such an amazing woman. I first met Kelli when we were both at a seminar with Angela Lauria and the Author Incubator. We both wrote and published our first book together. And as luck would have it, I was able to work with her 1:1 almost two summers later. Words cannot begin to express the journey she took me on starting first with reading my Akashic records. And next helping me heal from some things I was holding on to for far too long. Kelli motivates women in many ways. She has a fantastic retreat this May in Tulum working with others on the Sacred Soul Journeys. If you’re feeling the call to connect more completely in your life, Sacred Soul Journeys takes you there. Kelli will put you in the middle of outstanding discoveries and magical adventures that will empower you, unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Each journey is a rare opportunity to explore sacred sites, local cultures and healing modalities. Also included is the inner exploration to the core of your being where you’ll discover the depth of who you are. She also works with women who feel stuck in their relationship. She helps them find answers to many questions that lay hidden for so many of us. The Clear Heart Program has helped many find a new path to happiness. If you want to get out of the indecision and questioning, it requires all the awareness and tools you’ve been learning on your path, but it also needs understanding on a deeper level about what’s happening. Finally, Kelli also works with women in her other program, The Connect Program. Each of us has a SOUL MISSION that we’ve carried with us from lifetime to lifetime. Kelli helps you understand your history and your wounds and karma that may have created obstacles for us to overcome before we’re able to fly. Listen to my dear friend Kelli as she shares her journey starting 17 years ago to today. I’m telling you it’s powerful!

30 - Merna Liddawi on Healing With Art
Merna Liddawi is an award-winning artist and mentor. Her art is based on an ancient forgotten technique that brings natures beauty together by using genuine gold and carefully hand-made materials. Born in Jordan, she absorbed the vibrant colors, chanting music, and smells of the Orthodox Christian family icons. She visited ancient Roman ruins which influenced her greatly. Coming from the Middle East, her path was clear: gain a Physics degree, move to England, excel at teaching math… she did it all, but then she had a divine calling. Merna is a firm believer that art will transform and heal a person while bringing inner peace and solace to your life. Let’s face it. We are so distracted and overwhelmed by a digital age that we are often lost. We are lost in our computers, phones and other electronic devices. Merna’s philosophy is natural but oh so powerful and beautiful. Painting for Merna is a time of prayer, meditation, and stillness. She calls these moments ‘Selah’ Moments. And her goal and mission are for you too to experience “Selah” moments in your life. Her paintings are magnificent and can be found HERE. Her art is absolutely breathtaking and beyond anything you’ve ever seen. She uses nature’s pure elements – pigments, azurite, gold, egg, clay, and the meditative process while she creates. After many years including formal training (MFA), she has gravitated to using gold, earth and mineral pigments and geometry as symbols of light and spirituality. Her math training came in handy!!! Every aspect of her art is made by hand with love and care.
