Are You Dialed Into Your Intuition?
Kimberism: “The decision I have come to is that I would rather make the gravest of mistakes than to surrender my own judgment.” Spoken by the character Cora in The Last of the Mohicans

I am the type of person who relies heavily on my intuition. Although I sometimes miss the mark, the information I glean is usually highly accurate and helps my decision making process. How aware are you of the valuable information your internal guidance system offers you?
Science has proven that we us only a small portion of our brain. Imagine the benefit of accessing greater portions of our intellect, such as intuition and even genius. I believe you can grow your intuition through more acute heart and cognitive awareness. As with most things, it begins with awareness.
Recently I had two information packed dreams. One was concerning a business venture my son Josh began. In the dream I heard the word, “explosive” and I knew that the business was about to explode into success.
Another dream I had was about being given a present and inside the present was a pair of 3D glasses. Later when I was actually invited into a business opportunity with the gift giver, I felt comfortable knowing the opportunity would expand my vision and perception. This information helped foster a positive decision.
How dialed in are you to your intuition, or what I sometimes refer to as my God-connect. Often I find that clients have never allowed themselves to tap into their intuition, or trust their inner knowing, yet when they do their inclinations are often correct.
Years ago a mentor told me if I wanted to receive more intuitively, I needed to place value on what I received. The best way to place value on something you’ve sensed is to respond to it. Practice listening to your inner guidance and respond to the information you receive. What have you picked up on intuitively that is awaiting your response? Take a leap of faith and grow your intuition.Moxie Me Institute empowers heart-led entrepreneurial women and entrepreneur wannabes to bring their greatness, purpose and passion to the world, through live events, teleseminars, personal coaching, powerful resources, tools, and education.

Recently when working with my own coach (every good coach knows the value of coaching and therefore has their own!) her intuition was sharp as she tapped right into an area I had been getting some intuition hits on myself.
She challenged me to bring more of what I do best into my business, related to my own creativity and ability to connect people, a factor she described as, “You invite people better than any one I know! That’s what you do! You keep inviting people to come and join in the party!”
Even as a kid I brought groups together around a creative idea, such as a backyard talent show.
She reminded me that I am at my best when throwing a party. Maybe that is why on Thanksgiving we are hosting twenty or so singles, separated from families, to be a part of ours.
How well are you celebrating life? Are you under life, or dancing on top of it? Are you succumbing to the holiday blues, or are you turning up the music and belting out your own tune?
After losing my brother on Christmas Eve and attending his funeral four days later on my birthday, the holidays were a source of great pain for me. Naturally during my years of widowhood the holidays were also very difficult. Although I still try to reach out to those that may currently be hurting, as I suggest you do to, I’ve come to understand the way I reclaimed my own life was deciding to reclaim the party! Instead of allowing life circumstances to take me down, I chose to see the world as a party.
When life looses its fizzle I look for ways to create and bring in celebration. I invite you to do the same. That’s why I created a fun pizazz assessment to measure whether or not life has lost its fizz and needs some new celebratory measures set in place. You might need some help turning up he fizzle and getting back in the party!To determine if your life has lost its fizz I invite you to take my FREE pizazz assessment.

Ever since my daughter Chloe was small she has been a big fan of cheese, Brie and Gruyere amongst her favorites. When she was little she requested Gruyere by calling it “stinky cheese!” You gotta admit it has quite an aroma.
Once when she was perusing the gourmet cheese section at our local grocery store, she stumbled upon a huge mismarked wheel of Jarlsberg. Immediately she trotted herself up to the checkout station gloating in her enormous find. Although she was prepared to see the price corrected, her ginormous wheel of cheese ended up only costing her $10.00!
She came home overjoyed, spouting that God loved her so much that He gave her a boat load of cheese for only $10.00.
This whole experience made me consider the importance of reinterpreting things of value that may have missed our notice. Chances are there is version of “stinky cheese” in your life that could morph into a huge, mother-load, find! What is the great value that you have yet to see, but is apparent to others?
You have a unique, and ginormous value that may have gone undetected. Its time to cash in on your unique “stinky cheese”! What is sitting right under your nose that you need to leverage? I’d love to hear what you’ve discovered.I invite you to get some great tips about your unique value and how you can use it to thrive by signing up for my FREE call, LIVE A STAND OUT LIFE on Monday, November 22nd, 11:00 am Pacific (12:00 pm Mountain, 1:00 pm Central, 2:00 Eastern)Register at www.moxieme.comMoxie Me Institute empowers heart-led entrepreneurial women and entrepreneur wannabes to bring their greatness, purpose and passion to the world, through live events, teleseminars, personal coaching, powerful resources, tools, and education.

I wish I had known in my twenties that every thought had a corresponding emotion, and every emotion a corresponding feeling. It would have helped me navigate through life much easier.
Quite frankly, many of us don’t know what to do with inopportune fear, or bursts of emotions. For some the easiest solution is to stuff them, and keep control at all cost. The problem is no matter how much we may convince ourselves or the world around us that we are in control, the fact of the matter is that our stowaways are lurking beneath the surface. Therefore many of our early responses are still driving our lives!
As a child we may have decided not to trust swim instructors, because we were afraid of the water. However as an adult we can determine that the old interpretation no longer serves our life. We can change our mind about what we’ve believed and even become an expert high diver if we so choose!
As much as we say affirmations or “name it, and claim it,” we will always be strong armed by our actual thoughts and beliefs. There is just no getting around it.
You may wonder why you keep going around the same mountain, time and time again, or running into the same barrier. You may be under the notion that what you believe is in alignment with what you think, while being unaware of the myriad of thoughts and perceptions tucked out of sight in your subconscious.
The next time you find yourself reacting to a situation, stop, and observe what’s happening on the inside. Ask yourself what you are afraid of? Are you in conflict, because you are responding from a place of, “I should feel this way,” when you actually don’t?
When we get clear about what we truly think, feel and believe, our hidden beliefs won’t sabotage our lives. The good new is that we can reevaluate what we believe at any turn.
Take a moment to evaluate a block, or area that you’ve been bumping up against. What isn’t working about what you’ve believed related to this area? Decide what belief would better serve your like now and redefine what you think. Not let me hear how you are changing your mind around limiting beliefs that have hindered you and coming up with new interpretations.Moxie Me Institute empowers heart-led entrepreneurial women and entrepreneur wannabes to bring their greatness, purpose and passion to the world, through live events, teleseminars, personal coaching, powerful resources, tools, and education.

Get Down Off Your Grumpy!

Sometimes phrases just pop in my head out of no where. Does that ever happen to you? “Get down Off Your Grumpy
” is one such phrase. I’m not sure if this is simply a way I amuse myself to the point of bursting into laughter, or the best method yet for causing my teenage son to roll his eyes!
I like this phrase, because aren’t there times you’d just love to yell it, like in traffic when someone flips you an offensive gesture? Once my kids and I were driving along on a beautiful sunny day; that is until Mr. grumpy almost caused a wreck, refusing to let me merge into traffic.
Yes, I was inclined to swear, but instead I yelled out, “Oh, go take a nap
!” to which my kids sarcastically responded, “Wow
, you really showed him, mom
Imagine what a grumpy free world would be like for just a moment; no deflators standing by ready to burst your bubble. No naysayers saying!
Some times I am quite content being a Pollyanna wanting everyone to win and succeed. However, I realize the need for sand paper in our lives, because iron sharpens iron. Opposition can refine us and shape us into something we have yet to become. Edmond Burke said, “He that wrestles with us strengthens our nerves and sharpens our skill
Let me hear how you are letting opposition strengthen you and sharpen your skill?Moxie Me Institute empowers heart-led entrepreneurial women and entrepreneur wannabes to bring their greatness, purpose and passion to the world, through live events, teleseminars, personal coaching, powerful resources, tools, and education.
