Why your answers lie within you

I’ve shared tools with you on how to do so in the past. You can successfully shift from negative Saboteur talk to positive Sage thinking by doing PQ reps.

PQ reps help you to get present. When you are present, that is, grounded in your body, you experience strong focus, confidence, intuition, and internal guidance.

However, the barriers to entry – to accessing the present moment – seem too high in the hyper-stimulating world of excess. The constant reinforcement of “go, go, go” is a siren song that’s almost impossible to resist. It’s less effort to stay in the illusory outer world and express external dissatisfaction instead of doing the inner work that actually changes how the world functions from the inside out.

Aye, there’s the rub. Because it’s possible you want the world to change for you. “If only X didn’t do Y, then I’d be happy.”  The third expression of The Judge is to judge circumstances (the other two include judging yourself and judging others).

It took me decades to realize that if I want to change the world, I need to change myself first. Only then will the world around me change. When Gandhi says, “Be the change you wish to see in the world” it’s often associated as a call to action. Focus on his opening, though: “Be the change.” He’s talking about embodying what you want to see.

You’re here to have experiences, to live a life fully loved. Yet how many are truly living? Too many are surviving not thriving or living lives smaller than they’re called for. As Marianne Williamson says, “Your playing small does not serve the world.”

External noise masks what’s important. It keeps you surface level, treading water. To grow as a person you need to take deep dives. Deep dives let you focus on what matters – being present in your body, feeling alive.

Joseph Campbell said it best: “People say that what you’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what you’re really seeking. I think that what you’re seeking is an experience of being alive…”

He’s not saying there isn’t value in a purpose-driven (meaningful) life. In fact, a purpose-driven life is inherently more fulfilling.

Campbell is saying that it doesn’t end there. You want to feel alive because you are here to have experiences in this body you’ve chosen.

To be alive is ultimately an internal experience because you must feel it. It comes from being present in your body. You can’t feel alive through external events because, by their very nature, they exist outside the body.

Disconnection occurs when you look externally to be filled up because the external can never completely fill your bucket. People are imperfect and some circumstances really suck. Peak moments end, summer turns to fall.

I encourage you to return to finding that voice of inner quiet, your Leader Within. Beyond the noise, there is a place you can access for all the guidance you’ll ever need. It’s your voice of inner wisdom, God, Spirit, the Universe. All of these terms hold true. They are all manifestations of love.

Cut the excess. Find that loving voice and you’ll find clarity.

You have to be open minded in order to grow. The coaching that Laura gave me opened my eyes to what and how I was doing things and allowed me to see the bigger picture. I am not done yet but I already see the changes in my everyday life.


I think coaching is a great way to help you clear your mind when you get stuck with overwhelming situations or when stepping into changes in your life.


Coaching is life changing. It pushes you outside your comfort zone and challenges your perspectives.  It is highly motivating and the exercises and techniques used are both fun and informative.  I think the main benefits of coaching are to see yourself, others and the world more clearly.  I think coaching is valuable to anyone regardless of where you are in your life or career.


I honestly never thought I’d need a coach. I thought coaching was for CEOs and industry VIPs. I didn’t think it was for the “little guys” (i.e. me). Now, I’m of the belief that everyone – yes, EVERYONE – needs a coach. Coaching has really benefitted me and I’m so grateful to have had that time with Laura. It’s changed my life!


Laura is very patient. She took the time to understand what was causing me to be stuck where I am today and help me build a better vision so I can continue to grow.


I think Laura’s coaching was what I had been waiting for. Laura was so approachable, kind, and open. Her willingness to help and support made a difference for me. I found in her coaching new strategies, ideas, and perspectives that I could incorporate into my goals and objectives that I didn’t see before.


Laura is an incredibly intuitive, positive and caring coach. Her techniques helped me recognize both my strengths and areas I might want to explore as I embark on the next chapter of my career. The exercises she employed were instrumental in providing self perspective and challenging my frames of reference.


Laura is a natural coach. Her probing and compassionate questions helped me learn about myself: my value system, interests, goals and strengths.


Coaching sessions with Laura gave me new perspectives on how to process specific feelings and situations in life.  She showed me how to sit with my emotions, acknowledge them, and then use visualization strategies to move through them.  I now feel more confident and in control of how I choose to walk through life.


From the beginning, Laura put me at ease, creating a safe, open space for me to talk and share freely without fear of judgement. I loved the variety of approaches she used depending on the topic we were working on and it was fun being able to try out things I wouldn’t have considered before! With Laura’s coaching, I substantially grew my confidence in the workplace, overcame fears, dealt with issues I’d been carrying around for many years and, most importantly, learned to value myself and define a path forward into the future.


Laura’s coaching was a breath of fresh air and EXACTLY what I needed at that point of my life. I didn’t realize how impactful coaching was going to be, but by the end of the sessions together, I left feeling refreshed, inspired and genuinely curious about what my future held for me. Because of Laura and her coaching, I believe I became a better person – someone who is more open-minded, someone with a clearer focus, and someone who is willing to explore opportunities and possibilities far more than I ever did before.


I engaged Laura for coaching as I took on an expanded role leading an asset management company in Canada. As a female, I knew I would be a role model and had high expectations of myself. I was feeling overwhelmed and anxious.

In our first few coaching sessions we worked through exercises that allowed me to reflect on my purpose, leadership style and what mattered most to me. I continue to be grounded by the clarity I achieve in my coaching sessions – allowing me to be resilient and confident when challenges came my way.
