[Guest Blog] Check Your Season & Find Your Wisdom

by | Aug 22, 2023 | blog | 0 comments

Inspired by a newsletter from my coaching friends, Taryn Laakso and Cynthia Gene, I’m thinking about my own “innate biological wisdom.” Look at what Taryn and Cynthia shared – and tell me what you think.

  • Do you enjoy being around people sometimes, and other times you want to climb in a hole and shut out the world?
  • Or maybe some days you could work all day, and others you’re exhausted after just a few hours?
  • Did you know that you have different skills and assets to harness each week to maximize your natural strengths, like socializing, intuition, and learning?

“In a world that often glorifies constant hustle and perpetual motion, we often find ourselves swept up in the rush, struggling to keep up with the demands of our daily lives. Yet, amidst the chaos lies a profound wellspring of strength and wisdom – our innate wisdom. This hidden gem holds the keys to unlocking our true potential, guiding us toward authenticity, self-compassion, and empowered decision-making. What we know is that all humans can benefit from understanding this aspect, so we invite you to tap into your curiosity and learn more…”

What does it mean to tap into the well of our natural energy cycles? Our lives often mirror the changing seasons – spring, summer, fall, and winter – and each phase holds unique strengths and attributes that we can harness. From the vibrant energy of spring to the reflective quiet of winter, understanding and honoring these phases can revolutionize how we approach life.

“We can’t underestimate the importance of embracing rest and intuition as powerful tools on our journey. In a world that encourages ceaseless activity, it’s easy to overlook the significance of rest. Rest is not a sign of weakness but rather a vital ingredient in our quest for empowerment. During these moments of reprieve, we can connect with our inner selves, assess our paths, and make decisions that align with our authentic desires.”

“And let’s not forget about self-compassion and self-care. Embracing self-compassion is not only an act of kindness towards oneself but a stepping stone to unlocking our true potential. The inner critic, that relentless saboteur, often keeps us confined within the boundaries of self-doubt and limitations. Identifying and challenging these narratives enables us to explore new heights and horizons.”

“Finally, let’s recognize the impact of societal norms on our well-being … because we often celebrate constant output in our current society. The time is now to understand that rest is a pillar of productivity. Rest, rejuvenation, and reflection can contribute to our overall success – and is a paradigm shift that can transform our lives.”

“Although we focus on Unlocking Feminine Wisdom, we now understand that this is not merely a concept that applies only to women but to all genders.”

Special thanks to Taryn Laakso and Cynthia Gene for sharing their wisdom with us.
