Mini Monday Series - How the Fear of Judgement is Holding You Back

Mini Monday - Episode 36.jpg

Kristy Vail

Host of the podcast Connected with Kristy Vail + Life Strategy Coach.

Kristy helps sensitive, creative & introverted women leverage their unique personality types & confidently show up in the world as their most authentic selves.

Two coaching spots right now - apply today!

This episode covers:

  • How fearing judgement from others holds us back

  • When we assume others judge our decisions and actions and the stories we create in our minds

  • I address a listener question - “how to speak more confidently in conferences, on the phone or in person?”

  • The three areas where judgement may be holding you back:

    1. Saying NO to things that make you feel undervalued, tasks that are not your job, things that no longer serve you, etc. because of the fear of someone judging you for being lazy, undeserving, etc. or talking about you behind your back + feeling even more judged

    2. Trying somethings new - be courageous and step out of your comfort zone! Try something new without the crippling fear of judgement creeping in. Focus on the experience and the potential outcomes, not the people who won’t “get it”.

    3. If you’re worried about other people judging you - check into where you may be judging others. Dig into when you’re feeling judgmental & triggered by someone, chances are you’re seeking something they have.

Lili Pettit - Clutter Healing + The Energetic Connection Between the Inner Work and Your Space

Lili Pettit - Clutter Healing

Clutter Healer Lili Pettit matches expert organization with intuitive energetic cleansing to evaluate, coordinate and completely rejuvenate the home. Trained in a series of respected and time-honored traditions, Pettit works one-on-one with clients to identify and uncover emotional attachments to their possessions and embark on a gentle, yet effective, path toward releasing and removing them from the home. Pettit leaves spaces clean and clients feeling relaxed, energized and inspired to begin a new lighter way of living.

Pettit next underwent extensive professional training in the healing arts, including shamanic house blessing and pranayama breathwork meditation, to complement her de-cluttering skills with spiritual healing. She uses these unique tools during many of her organization processes to clear the mind and body while cleansing the home once needless possessions have been removed from clients’ spaces. These techniques also are helpful prior to starting the organization process to help ease resistance, tension and stress.

Clutter Healing© offers a variety of services that help clients balance their clutter while recognizing and understanding what they need – and let go of the rest. Pettit’s positive attitude, clear logic, and gentle energy help guide clients through the cleansing process and establish a sense of calm, clarity and consciousness in their emotional and physical space.
