We can want to do things in life but just wanting is not enough. Are you committed to really taking the steps to get there? Difference makers have commitment and discipline. Passion is not enough. If you feel stuck, invest in yourself, take risks and learn to be comfortable with uncertainty. One thing we need to commit to is shifting our internal states and stories, which means updating our beliefs to get into alignment with what we want. Remember, our outside world is a reflection of our inside world. In this call with Gail, she is at a crossroads when she is thinking of leaving a more analytical job to pursue a more creative path. She is getting mixed messages and whether “just follow your passion” is good advice for her to follow. We cover those topics in the call along with a conversation about how her logical mind is an obstacle – and how to make it more of an ally. Please keep your comments and questions coming. It’s so exciting to connect with you. Consider/Ask Yourself: Does your logical and reasonable mind get in the way of hearing your intuition? Do you think you have to know all the steps of your plan before you can take a step? Are you confused about the messages the universe is sending? Do you feel too “in your head” most of the time? Would you say your inside world is the reflection you want to project to the outside world? Do you feel you are in vibrational alignment with that which you want to attract? Gail’s Question: Gail recently left her corporate job and wants to move into a more creative role. But she feels like she is getting mixed messages from the universe. She asks for Christine’s insight. Gail’s Key Insights and Aha’s: ● Gail needs to trust her creative skills ● Her energy shifts when she talks about her desired career ● She needs to satiate her creative hunger ● Understanding she’s on a journey ● She needs to feel the vibration within herself How to get over it and on with it: ● Get in vibrational alignment ● Give yourself permission to explore ● Self-acknowledge and connect yourself to the passion ● Feel into things instead of figuring them out Tools and Takeaways: ● Give yourself permission to pursue something you are passionate about ● Practice vibrational manifesting ● Get in to your creative ● Ask for support along your journey in the form of prayer Resources: Association of Transformational Leaders Christine Hassler

I know an area many of you dream about has to do with your finding your purpose and serving others. You may also long for more freedom. Freedom not only to do something you love, but also have the money and time to spend more time with people you love. This is the dream of today’s caller, Mike. . His constant search of products and materials lead him to believe his next steps need to come from outside himself.

Are you stalling and calling it research? Caller’s Question: Mike, a self-proclaimed product junkie, has a dream of having a home based business.

Welcome to my first official episode. I went through 25 different coaching sessions in preparation for this show and trying to decide which one would be first was difficult because all my callers were amazing. I ended up choosing Anneke’s call because we get into the question “Who am I?” and because of the level of vulnerability in this session. We often feel embarrassed and apologize for our emotions, but I think of vulnerability as strength. Remember, we get to choose who we are and not being who we are can be suffocating. We are not defined by other people’s views of us. We are all born with natural gifts from the divine. It’s up to us to embrace them and use them. Consider/Ask Yourself:
Who am I?
Do you feel like you are really living authentically?
Are you fully expressing who you are or are you being a version of yourself?
Do you struggle with loneliness?
Are you in touch with your emotions?
Are you concerned about what other people think of you? Anneke’s Question: Anneke is about to make a big career change and would like to know how to be open and honest about who she really is and to shift from her pattern of keeping herself small and not seen. Anneke’s Key Insights and Aha’s:
● Acknowledging she sugarcoats her difficult emotions.
● She doesn’t want to be a burden on others.
● Loneliness is has been her friend because it’s when she gives herself a break.
● It’s ok for other people not to like it when she is her authentic self.
● Recognizing she is staying in her comfort zone because those emotions are familiar. How to get over it and on with it:
● Try taking actions to trust yourself and be consistently authentic.
● Don’t compare yourself to other people, embrace your own essence.
● Be willing to remember the essence of who you truly are.
● Invite spirit into your space.
● Practice self-forgiveness.
● Don’t be defined by what other people have told you about you. Tools and Takeaways:
● Write out who you are, what is your unique essence? Then, for 30 days get in front of a mirror and make “I am” statements with your answers.
● Pick 2-3 people to practice intimacy and authenticity with.
● Write this sentence “Sometimes I pretend I am (fill in the blank) but I am not”.
Hello and welcome to my introductory podcast. This podcast is fulfilling a dream I had as a little girl. Ever since listening to Dr. Laura Schlessinger on the radio, I have wanted to have a call-in advice show. I loved to hear people gaining insight and having aha moments on the radio in just 5-10 minutes. This show will be a mix of practical and spiritual information to help callers (and the rest of us by default) break free from suffering and disappointment. I’ll be talking a lot about “Expectation Hangovers” which was the tile of my last book. If you are new to my work you are probably wondering, just what is an expectation hangover? An expectation hangover is when things don’t go according to plan, when we don’t get the sense of fulfillment after something does happen or when life throws us a total curveball. To get our friendship started, I am sharing my story with you and sharing the moment I had of peace and connection. It only lasted a second, but its effects will last a lifetime. I welcome you to shift your consciousness, to heal your mind and ease your transitions. Consider/Ask Yourself:
Who am I?
What do I want and how do I get it?
What makes time stop for me?
What am I learning?
What’s here for me to heal? Key Insights and Aha’s:
● Visualization through meditation told me to serve more. This podcast gave me the outlet.
● When you listen to someone else being coached your defenses are down allowing you to take in the information more freely.
● Self-imposed shame and judgments can stunt our growth. How to get over it and on with it:
● Milk it for all that it’s worth.
● Recognize that even the things which feel miserable are in service to our growth learning and healing.
● Understand your suffering could be the catalyst for your passion. Tools and Takeaways:
● 5 Key Valuable Lessons of Expectation Hangovers
○ They illuminate that we all put a lot of expectation on ourselves.
○ They teach us we don’t have control.
○ They push us out of our comfort zone.
○ They teach us to live inside out instead of outside in.
