What’s Your Life Purpose? with Holistic Therapist Lucy Anne Chard :069

What’s Your Soul’s Plan?

Discovering and fulfilling your life purpose, ironically, does not come naturally to everyone. Even if your life seems perfect from the outside or you followed all the steps and the rules… you still may be asking these questions. Having been in your shoes, I encourage you to listen, learn and enjoy!

 

“Get clarity on your heart’s core desires and align your life and career goals with your innate talents.” – Lucy Anne Chard – Holistic Therapist

Here are some highlights of what we discussed:

  • How her skin cancer diagnosis woke her up to acknowledge how disconnected she was in her own life and how she was dissociated from herself and had put aside her own created expression – her own needs and hearts core desires.
  • The tools she used to bring herself back into alignment: hatha yoga, meditation, enjoying being in nature, digital detox, etc.
  • The Insight Timer App
  • “I had built up a life around me that was designed to please others but not myself.” – Lucy Anne Chard – Holistic Therapist
  • How she balances social media and online work
  • “I’ve found in the work that I do that one of the deepest questions, and one of the most important questions, is, ‘What do you want?’ …I’ve experienced when you ask people that… we’re very good at articulating what we don’t want, but we’re not that good at articulating what we do want.” – Lucy Anne Chard – Holistic Therapist
  • Signs of being disconnected: the dreaded “should’s”, a feeling of anxiety in the chest, feeling overwhelmed; seeking guidance, truth, approval, confirmation and energy from external sources; not looking inward for answers or trusting that the answers are inside; knowing information intellectually buy not fully understanding it; “collecting” courses; looking externally for validation, etc.
  • “Imagine how wonderful it would be if we could move forward making decisions based on flourishing and what that means for us, what that means for you – to flourish. And to be able to learn to be able to say ‘no’ to the things that don’t support that.” – Lucy Anne Chard – Holistic Therapist
  • Discovering and recovering life purpose and mission
  • How a Soul Plan Reading helps a person come into alignment
  • Examples from my Soul Plan Reading
  • Anxiety beyond biochemistry
  • Becoming addicted to being anxious

 

Watch, listen, learn… Enjoy!

Follow Your Dreams – Author and Illustrator Michelle Nelson-Schmidt :065

Children’s author Michelle Nelson-Schmidt shares how facing our fears is crucial to the true wellness that comes from following our dreams.

Michelle Nelson-Schmidt is a children’s book author and illustrator who travels the nation teaching children how to face their fears, listen to their inner voices, be themselves despite what the world tells them, and to follow their dreams.  Her story is liberating and inspiring, and shows us that while the road to your dreams may be rocky, scary, hard, and full of failures and mistakes, it’s worth it.  Her books are meant for children, but her message is equally important to all adults because we have been hurt, squashed, and bruised from the negative messages of the world.  Michelle’s wisdom through her stories teaches us how to listen to our hearts underneath the loud voice of our fears, embrace our true authentic selves, believe in the magic of giving, and tune in to our interconnectivity to each other for true wellness.

 

“When you start to trust in who you are in this world and listen to your heart amazing things begin happening [sic].” – Michelle Nelson-Schmidt

“Just because some people don’t ‘get you’ or understand you does not mean you’re wrong and you gotta’ stay true to yourself because eventually what happens is your people find you. People that think like you, act like you – we’re magnets in this world. ” – Michelle Nelson-Schmidt

 

“When you shine your light you give permission for others – you shine that light on others and you give permission to everybody else (to shine).” – Michelle Nelson-Schmidt

About Michelle Nelson-Schmidt

Michelle Nelson-Schmidt - WhatifMonsters.com - Follow Your DreamsI am Michelle Nelson-Schmidt, I live in Lilburn, Georgia and I have the great privilege of getting to be an author and illustrator for EDC Publishing. After about 10 years eeking my way towards that goal while working full-time as a mother and graphic designer, I am finally doing it full time. Sometimes I need to pinch myself when I realize that this is actually my life. I still sometimes look behind me to see the ‘author’ that a person next to me is talking about. I write and illustrate books for kids. Wow! THIS IS MY LIFE! I travel to schools all over the United States reading them my books, talking about my journey and encouraging them to follow their dreams – with everything they’ve got – no matter what! Because my life is magical, it truly is and every minute, even the doubting, painful ones were so worth it to get to here, I want every person I know and meet to understand that this life is meant to be magical – and we all can have a magical life. You just have to have the courage to look for it and work for it.

I love that I get to show my children and all the children I meet (over 400,000 now) that life is what you make it. That persistence and hard work will overcome almost any obstacle – and I of course have to make sure that they know reading is pretty much the key it all, no matter what your dream.

When I am not traveling I am busy being silly and having fun with the loves of my life – my husband Kevin, my son Noah, my daughter Sophia and our two crazy dogs, Piggy Pie and Otto Von Schmidt. They are all my everything and I love them more than bees love flowers!
