One Word 2017

Ahhh, my word for this year.

It came to me while we driving to the Christmas tree farm. At the time it seemed logical. Necessary. Just… like a fresh breath. Like coming up for air. Like a big giant YES.

But as I sat with it, it got really scary. It felt really big. It felt like a step I wasn’t ready to take.

I completed my Powersheets and my word was all over the place.

But still I hesitated.

I completed the shortened 2017 Goals with Soul process that Danielle LaPorte put out this year. And, again, my word was at the top of the list.

And still I hesitated.

I toyed with wayfinding (from this amazing podcast that Tina pointed me to). And I tried on coddiwomple. But they just weren’t it.

So here we are. A week into 2017. And I’m ready to tell you.

My word for 2017 is unfurl.

It comes from a prayer from the Desire Map.

I accept my calling: to show up and shine, unfurled and honest.

As I typed that line just now, my friends, I got tears in my eyes. 

My calling isn’t a certain achievement. It isn’t a number or a pose or a job. My calling is to show up.

To UNFURL.

Let's do this, 2017.

A Little Leaf Meditation

This meditation is one of my favorite meditations. During this little 10-minute invitation, I'll encourage you to go a little deeper into your body and your thoughts. And I'll teach you a way to start to let things go. Our minds are made to think, our bodies are made to have sensations. But, just for this time, I will invite you to notice and release all of these things we notice. And just become still and peaceful.  

You may notice my cat causing tripod earthquakes. And you may notice that I am incredibly awkward when I'm being still and silent. But hopefully you won't notice either because hopefully you'll have your eyes closed!

Are there pieces of your life that you want to shift? Do you desire self-care and self-affirming rituals? Do you need to feel less pressure to be someone different and just really step into your life? Are you ready to really feel like you and your body are on the same team and on the path to awesomeness and ease?

Let me help.

I am primarily looking to fill lunchtime sessions. Regularly scheduled 30-minute sessions between 11:30am and 1:30pm Eastern Time. We can talk about evening sessions if that's all that fits!

Packages also include email checkins between sessions OR the option to have me just a text message away.

Please feel free to comment here or email me (krissie.bentley@gmail.com) with any questions. I love taking about what I do and about what I think WE could do.

Packages start at $75/month. More information (and the form to get started!) can be found by clicking the COACHING tab up top.
