Do any of these sound like you?
Dealing with old patterns, everyday stresses
Do your emotions run away with you sometimes... or seem to freeze up?
Are there disagreements with other people, that trouble you because there doesn't seem to be a good way forward?
How about inner conflicts – do you feel torn between two impulses, or like you can't "get" yourself to do something?
Getting where you want to go
You have decisions to make, right? Is there one that’s harder than you’d like it to be?
Does the vision for what you’re doing, personally or professionally, seem murky or unrealizable?
Are you struggling to devise the plans and invent the strategies to move towards your goals?
Finding your voice
Does your voice fail you when you need it?
Can you find the courage to speak up for what matters most to you, or do the pressures on you shut you down?
How about finding the right words – can you get clear enough to make your case?
Does it feel like effectiveness through influence and persuasion is out of reach?
Singing for joy – or for any other reason
Are you embarrassed or scared of speaking or singing
in public – perhaps for important occasions, for your community, or at church – yet drawn to the idea?
Are you longing for the freedom to let your voice out and
express yourself with it?
Do you have the confidence to think that you can learn
to use more of your voice, or do you believe you "just don't have it"?
And how come insight isn't enough –
even when you know what’s going on,
things don’t change?
