I Make a Difference

The I Make a Difference podcast is an adventure that explores the journey you experience as your human self and the pathway back to your true self. A journey involving a disconnection from who you truly are, being conditioned in your thinking, behaviors, and processing, being emotionally impacted and controlled by your reactions, and the experience of a past that can be complex and multilayered in its hold on you. As well as diving into and strengthening your connection with all the powerful elements of your true self as you find your way back to the real you. If you truly want to make a difference to yourself, it requires you to do the work to uncover and reconnect to the true you, for you to develop your awareness, ability to recognize what you are experiencing, face your truth, understand your processing, and to know how to work with all aspects of who you are not and who you are, so you can come back to you. The I Make a Difference Podcast is here to support you to achieve this. Subscribe, review and rate The I Make a Difference podcast if what is shared is helping you make a difference to you.

Episode 30: Being Inspired By Yourself

Being inspired by yourself is a natural and powerful process. Where you are fascinated and curious with who you are, the inspiration and potential you have within you, and the inspiration you will discover and express from you.

Yet you may look to other people, objects, and environments for inspiration. You can experience bursts of inspiration instead of a flow. When you are inspired, the ener...

For decades one of the most powerful patterns of conditioned approaches I have had with my mum is the responsibility I took on board for her emotional and physical well-being.

My need to be over-responsible has governed my interactions, my decision-making, and my relationship with my mum since a very young age.

The result is, I have been serious in my relationship with her, the problem solver and protector. It was late last year wh...

This time of year is powerful on so many levels.

It is a time to celebrate and enjoy family and friends.

Yet the coming together of family, having time away from your daily routine where you have space to think and feel, missing people who have been a part of your life, all contribute to you having emotions triggered.

The emotions can end up controlling and dictating what you experience and how you feel and will keep you in pattern...

You probably believe that boundary setting is about valuing yourself.  But is it? In this episode, I explore the truth about boundaries.  One of the truths is you set boundaries for yourself, with yourself. You are limiting yourself from doing what you have previously done, accepting and allowing what you do not deserve. So you set boundaries to grow your ability to experience what you do deserve. Yet boundaries are a little more c...

    As you become more and more self-responsible the more powerful you become.  You own more of who you are, what you do, not do, say and not say. And you honor your commitment to yourself to own who you truly are, to do the right thing, and to do right by you.

    Grow your ability to take responsibility for you and everything you do. And in doing so, grow the power of you. Explore seven key processes that I apply in my life, that have su...

     You would possibly believe that given I am an expressive and outspoken individual who has a very strong energy that this would mean I was visible visible (in keeping with the title of this episode). However, you would be wrong. Or at least that is what I believe and more to the point experience. I am, in my world - what I call "visibly invisible". 

    You know that I am there, but I am invisible to the other person in terms o...

    Exploring whose agreement with whom contributes to and influences the soul agreements you have directly with members of your family, is fascinating in the commitments that we all make to each other.

    There are so many layers of purpose and meaning to your soul agreements.

An adventure where there are immediate benefits you can gain if you choose to see them. And magical benefits that you are not y...

    Vulnerability - your rawness, being exposed and transparent. When you truly connect to your vulnerability you connect to a gentle, surrendered and beautiful part of you. You own and honor your truth, without judgement, with acceptance and love.

    Yet you and I go through a journey to find that out.  I spent time reflecting on my vulnerability journey, and discovered processes I was not fully aware of or even aware of, that contribute...
