Episode 085: Reflections + Transitions


Sometimes we hear something, and then we need to come back to it before it hits us and we understand what it means.

If you’ve been following along the past few weeks, you know I have been interviewing some fantastic people. Today all I want to do is simply sit and bask in the beauty that was in my conversations with Hillary McBride and Erin Baute. To bask in the joy that came from doing the Radical Wellness Mind + Body event with my dear friend Aurora. To sit in excitement to get to do more of these things. And also to feel the real and deep heartache of transition. 

My hope for you my friend is that listening to these super weird, out there, personal conversations stirs something up in you, causes you to be open to change, to think of things from a new perspective. 

Why do kids play? Not because they are told to, but because they can’t not. When thinking about learning and growth, I want that to be my understanding. I can’t not wonder. I can’t not evolve. I must move forward. 

I am coming into a massive season of transition. For the time being, I am transitioning out of my official one on one therapy work and moving into a new  role within the genuinely capable and astonishingly talented team I have gathered together. I am doing what I feel I am great at, which is meeting with clients for their very first session and gathering all the stuff in order to come up with a concrete and do-able plan for them so that they can flourish and succeed in whatever they are meant to.  

This change has brought up emotions all over the place. It is not something I initially would allow myself to do. I tend to sit in a space of individual responsibility. I forget that I simply just can’t do it all. I want big radical things and I want people to have access to quality care. So it is time for me to provide that, within the lens of my team at Radical Wellness Collaborative. 

Today I give myself and I give you the permission to evolve. 

Welcome Prayer: 

Welcome. Welcome. Welcome. I welcome everything that comes to me today, because I know it’s for my healing. I welcome all thoughts, feelings, emotions, persons, situations and conditions. I let go of my desire for power and control. I let go of my desire for affection, esteem, approval, and pleasure. I let go of my desire for survival and security. I let go of my desire to change any situation, condition, person or myself. I open to the love and presence of God and God’s action within me. Amen. 

What do you need to make room for? 

Does anything need to change, shift, or evolve?

I’m Elyse.   Each week, I will be sharing with you from inside my vintage trailer where I work as a therapist, and share some of my musings on the human experience. I am endlessly fascinated and inspired by people. I love being a therapist and I'm deeply grateful for the intimate and beautiful work I get to do. I believe we are wildly capable of healing and making this world a better place, and this is my attempt at doing that. Sharing beauty to invoke beauty. May you find yourself inside these stories and ponderings and be better for it.    Cheers!
