Freeing Yourself From Being An Emotional Hostage Through Forgiveness

Freeing Yourself From Being An Emotional Hostage Through Forgiveness

People tend to see forgiveness as something they're doing for other people when really it in fact is what will set YOU free. They see it as the "F" word with a negative connotation vs seeing it as true Freedom from what's holding you emotionally hostage. To counter your resistance to forgiveness, make a list of those people and things you need to release. Therein you will find who and what you need to forgive including yourself. Now I'm not saying it's going to be an easy process and its definitely not a "one n done". Forgiveness needs to be done more in layers like an onion. You might think you're completely done with forgiving a particular person only to discover later that there are more layers. Having assistance from a Life Coach or Counselor can REALLY help! At Odyssey Counseling we have both! It's nice to have someone lead and guide you through your process, at YOUR pace, but steady enough for you to feel like you're making progress. After all it's hard sometimes to find our way through the dark by our self. In the meantime be good to yourself and each other.

Practicing Mindfulness

September 5, 2022

Practicing Mindfulness

Practicing Mindfulness is a very powerful thing. Whether the Mindfulness can take you out of overthinking the future or pull you out of negativity, it will serve you well. Most people overthink things, some more than others. BUT we have the choice where we put our focus. Actually we have control over what we think. Positive thoughts turn into positive actions. Look at the people around you through a different lens and find ONE positive thing about each one. That thinking can then lead to an action of kindness. The positive thinking IS action. Overt manifestation is practicing kindness. One random act of kindness, done consistently and daily can change your life.

Try it every day this week and let me know what happens.

Turning Challenges Into Opportunities

August 13, 2022

It is so easy to see our challenges as obstacles. While it is true we don't have a magic wand, the most powerful place we come from is what our mind does with the things going on in our lives. Believe it or not, we all have the choice of how we think about things. For example, how you see your challenges... you can choose to see them as opportunities. This doesn't mean life is always pleasant or that we're walking with our head in the clouds. It can mean though that we face things with faith instead of defeat. Positivity instead of negativity; confidence vs. self-doubt, etc.

Try it, and see how you'll go from feeling Power-less TO Power-ful!!

Finding Your Inner-Hero

July 24, 2022

These days there are national high levels of heat. Heat can definitely be detrimental to your life. It can also be symbolic. What do you do when you feel the heat in life? Do you avoid? Do you overcompensate? Do you acknowledge what's going on? Too many times people avoid what ever is going on. People in general do not like to be uncomfortable, hence the avoidance. THIS method does not work. What ever you are avoiding will absolutely sit and wait for you days, weeks, and even years. People avoid because they don't have coping mechanisms so they wind up feeling confused as to what they can do to handle their circumstances. There of course are always several things you can do. What you definitely want to avoid is doing NOTHING!! Doing nothing will only invite more of the same, difficult situations. You see things will snowball and gather more of the same until you stop that snowball, pick it up, and finally deal with it. If you need help, let us know. We have Counselors AND Coaches to help. We will help you find your inner superhero by clearing limiting beliefs and other issues as well as teaching you the skills you need to make the changes you want!! We work in person locally OR online!
