Power in the Pause

Having the clarity and alignment of why slowing down is critical in your life

Your Inner Roommate

Have you ever stopped to witness the internal dialogue that is constantly going on in your head? One of my favorite authors, Michael Singer, calls it your inner roommate.

Not sure what I am talking about? Pause for a minute. Hear that voice in your head? Yah, that’s the one.

Taking time out to PAUSE is a ‘good thing’ to do

My Personal Transformation Journey

It’s currently 11:30 am on a Tuesday and my inner roommate is having a great debate around taking the time to PAUSE. Literally mid debate I could hear the voices of my family, friends and clients that seem to struggle with the exact same thing. Conceptually, we all know that taking time out to PAUSE is a ‘good thing’ to do. Yet it is consistently the area that seems to trip us up the most.

Why? Because we live in a society and culture that is so CONDITIONED to believe that doing more will net the greatest return in our lives. How has that been working out for you? I know in my personal story the constant hustle and grind led to increased stress, anxiety, burn out and ultimately a physical dis-ease in my body. My rock bottom forced a PAUSE in my life. This was the PAUSE that ultimately led to my personal transformation journey.

Slowing down will recharge yourself both physically and mentally


Now, every time I work with a client the first thing we do is SLOW DOWN – CREATE SPACE – PAUSE. It is in these moments where we can finally hear ourselves think, connect back to who we truly are and move into flow states where creation and long-term transformation occur.

As I worked through my own personal debate today I remembered that adding a PAUSE into my days is simply a non-negotiable. Having the clarity and alignment of why slowing down is critical in your life will support you when your inner roommate shows up in attempt to take you off course.

How are you creating space in your days, weeks, months and year to slow down? Is this an area you need to focus on?

If you are struggling to pause, to slow down, to create space then this is the course for you!

Much love,
