Do you relate to yourself as a constant self-improvement project and find yourself overdosing on personal growth? Maybe, you should take a little break to enjoy life. Being in a state of learning and growing is different than coming from a place of “I need to fix me”. You can not be fixed because you are not broken. Self-love includes accepting and being gentle with our inner critic when it pops up. We are human. We are not going to love everything about ourselves at all times. Self-love is a daily practice of forgiving ourselves so we can take responsibility for our actions without beating ourselves up. Today’s caller, Aly, wants to move into acceptance of an illness but she is attempting to do it with a lot of judgment about herself and not from a place of love. Women endure a lot of negative energy and pain about their bodies. Practice appreciation over criticism and pay attention to the gifts your body brings, rather than the way it looks. If you really want your body to look different, commit to treating it differently. Be mindful of the food and substances you fuel it with. Be committed to moving it in a way that keeps it healthy and fit. Our relationship with our bodies boils down to choices. If you have a disorder, illness or are going through a job loss, what are you making it mean about you? We can not always control what happens to us but we can control what we make it mean. You can approach it from the orientation of being a true seeker rather than a fix-it project. Being a constant learner allows you to look at the most challenging things in your life through the lens of “What is my soul seeking to learn from this?” And, be cautious of always being right about your story. Be honest with yourself about how attached you are to your story. Often, people don’t think they are able to change their story, but they may just be attached to it. We need to believe we have the power to shift our relationship to our stories. Pay attention to your “if-then” scenarios. Believing in “When I do this, I will be that” is conditional acceptance. I am putting together all of my best tools and resources for you. My video course is coming out in October and it will focus on acceptance — because acceptance is the first law of spirit.

Christine shares some of the lessons and blessings from Bali with you!! This is an uplifting episode to remind you of how to feel more joy, connection and devotion in your life.
Do you honor the changing seasons of your life? As humans, we love the seasons of life where everything feels good and we are full of inspiration. But can we love or accept the seasons that don’t feel good? While the winter seasons of life can be brutal, eventually the spring does arrive. If we rush our process or try to push through things like grief and loss, we can harden and suppress emotion which is not healthy on any level. Today’s caller, Brittaney, is grieving and finds herself in a challenging season of her life. She recently lost her grandmother and went through a romantic break-up at almost the same time. Brittaney doesn’t feel like herself and feels she has lost her passion for life. She would like to get #OverItandOnWithIt but there may be something else she needs to experience first. If you are going through any type of loss, it is important to cry all of your tears. There is a big difference in indulging in emotion and going through the natural emotion of losing someone you love. If you are supporting anyone who is going through a loss, the best way to serve and support them is to hold a space of unconditional love and compassion for them. Let them cry all of their tears so their grief can move through rather than be diverted through distraction or be repressed by being strong. If your romantic relationship has ended, remember that in long-term relationships love isn’t enough. The passion and chemistry of falling in love with someone are the fun parts. But it takes a lot more than that to have a healthy long-term relationship. I am putting together all of my best tools and resources for you. My video course is coming out in October and it will focus on acceptance — because acceptance is the first law of spirit.

Are you in a season of grief and are attempting to rush through it? ● Are you pushing through by attempting to be strong? ● Do you have people who hold a space for you while you are dealing with your grief? ● Are you someone who may be holding a space of unconditional love for someone else? Brittaney's Question: Brittaney is having a hard time getting over her expectation hangover. She has recently experienced significant losses in her life. Brittaney's Key Insights and Aha’s: ● She feels she has lost her passion for life ● She accepted grief instead of pushing it away ● Her best friend has been taking the brunt of her hurt ● She has feelings of rejection after her break-up ● She may have been playing the victim recently How to get over it and on with it: ● She should talk with the person who has transitioned ● She needs to lean on other people in her life ● She should keep her heart open ● She should allow herself to be vulnerable ● She should be gentle with herself and honor the process of grieving ● She should have a good cry and ride the wave of her emotion Assignments and Takeaways: ● Do you have any buried grief? Maybe it’s time to cry your tears and honor your process ● Write a letter to your heart and ask it how it is feeling ● Cultivate a relationship with those who have passed over ● If you need closure or completion, write a letter you don’t intend to send ● Remember the power of vulnerability and reach out to friends or professionals ● Be gentle with yourself ● Get a copy of my book, Expectation Hangover Sponsor: Onnit Wellness - Receive a 10% discount on your purchase when you order through this link.

We all have issues or problems in our lives we need to overcome and heal. What things do you believe to be your biggest issues? The key to healing is how we relate to the issue. We can choose to be a victim and allow shame and judgment to rule our lives or we can choose to hang on to our issue because it makes us feel special or gets us attention. We can also choose to believe our problem is insurmountable and even though we feel we have tried everything to get over it, we think we never can. Today’s caller, Jeanette, is feeling she is not enough and she struggles with an eating disorder she adopted in her early teens. She craves acceptance from her family because she has a low acceptance of herself. If there is something you are doing to get love and acceptance or helps you to fit into your family, you WILL have a hard time letting it go. You may have a fear of being authentically you because you worry other people will judge or make fun of you. Remember, we teach people how to treat us. If we continue to show up as a victim or play into the pattern, people will continue to see and treat us accordingly. If someone isn’t in a loving, open-minded relationship with themselves, they will not be loving and open-minded with you. Not everyone is on the personal growth journey that you are on. Give the people you love the dignity of their own process. If you want or need to hear something, look into your own eyes and say it to yourself. Be you, step out of your box and don’t take things personally. I am very excited to share an update about my new video course. I am putting together all of my best tools and resources for you. The first video is coming out in October and it will focus on acceptance, because acceptance is the first law of spirit. My gift to you is to be on the list for the first announcement and for the early bird discount. Visit ChristineHassler.com/VIPlist to sign up. Consider/Ask Yourself: ● Is there something you have been carrying around for years you just can’t seem to heal? ● Do you keep trying to change and to heal yourself but nothing ever shifts? ● Do you feel like your family or friends look at you through the eyes of your issue? ● Is an eating disorder or a body image issue something you struggle with? Jeanette's Question: Jeanette wants to know how to overcome her feelings of not being enough and an eating disorder she has had since she was 14. Jeanette's Key Insights and Aha’s: ● She feels stuck where she is ● She is contributing to the way others see and perceive her ● She wants to be seen, loved and accepted ● She feels she will be put down if she shares her true feelings ● She is on a journey of awakening ● She needs to free herself from her emotional weight How to get over it and on with it: ● She should move fully into acceptance ● She should find her voice and speak her truth ● She should say, “I accept myself and I love myself unconditionally”, every day ● She should write a letter to her mom and her sister, she will never send Assignments and Takeaways: ● Look into your own eyes and say the things to yourself you long to hear from others. ● Write a letter (you will not send) to get your feelings out and to arrive at the completion of the issue and the pattern. Use these sentence stems: ○ I’m mad because ○ I’m sad because ○ I wish ○ I learned ○ I forgive you for ○ I forgive myself for ○ Thank you for ○ Why I am letting this go ● Be mindful of using the word ‘trying’. ● Make a voice memo of what you want to embody and listen to it every day.

Today’s caller, Linsey, is concerned her boyfriend may have an addiction to alcohol. She loves him and believes that if he can change they may be able to take their relationship to the next level. She thinks her problem is in her relationship but as our coaching session shows, it has very little to do with her partner and more to do with something deep within herself. You cannot change other people. Your desire to change and heal yourself should not be attached to changing someone else. Focus only on yourself. It is important to make healthy changes, even if it feels really scary. Unhealthy lifestyles feel familiar and safe because we have been in them for so long. It is crucial to find professional support and to be held accountable when we start making changes. It is difficult for us to do this on our own. Our ego doesn’t like it when we change because it craves certainty. And, as we start to grow in consciousness, the ego starts to hold on a little tighter. If listening to this call was uncomfortable for you or if it brought up some awareness around your own addictions, consider what you may be using to avoid feeling and dealing. This is why I am creating an Over It and On With It course to give you tools and resources to feel, deal and heal. Coaches — I could have coached Linsey to get out of her relationship. Personally, I hope she does distance herself from it to focus on her own healing. But, if I coached her in that direction she may have shut down. She said she loves him even though she knows he’s an addict. She feels safe being a co-dependent in the relationship due to her relationship with her mother. I didn’t want her ego to take over and for her to get defensive. It may not have been possible for her to get to the deeper awareness she reached during the call. It’s important to give someone the dignity of their process, instead of encouraging them to make a move they may not be ready to make. Would you like to connect to who you really are and discover your Secret Sauce? There is a free video training series on my site to help you build your business or obtain your desires from the inside out. Your Secret Sauce is a unique combination of your experience, talents, life lessons and passions, which can help you to feel a sense of belonging and confidence. Go to www.christinehassler.com/ss to get the free videos. Consider/Ask Yourself: ● Are you in a relationship with someone and hope they will change? ● Are you in a relationship with an addict? Are you using an external coping strategy to distract yourself from dealing with something you don’t want to face? ● Do you acknowledge that you may have tendencies towards co-dependency? ● Is your ego feeling dark, and would you like to feel more connected to your soul? Linsey's Question: Linsey is concerned her current relationship may be following the same path as her past relationships, and she is unsure about the future. Linsey's Key Insights and Aha’s: ● She realizes she has co-dependency issues ● She wants her partner to change ● She knows she has walked on eggshells around her mother ● She uses food and television as numbing agents ● She became super-independent because she doesn't believe she can count on anyone else ● She knows she should disconnect from her relationship but doesn't want to ● She can heal this issue How to get over it and on with it: ● She should be honest about who her partner really is ● She needs to deal with the hurt inside herself ● She needs professional help by way of a 12-step program or a therapist ● She should make a 1-year commitment to not take actions that can’t be done ● She should incorporate a spiritual practice into her life Assignments and Takeaways: ● Take a serious look at your coping devices. Are they addictions or in the danger zone of becoming addictions? ● Take an honest look at your relationships. Ask people close to you what they notice about your relationships. ● Write a list of the things you desire and what you think will make you feel better. ● Ask the universe to guide you to the help you need and want.
