You know you want to change? This hack will get you finally moving! – Integrally Alive Podcast

For change, Intellectually knowing what we need to do is nowhere as powerful as the embodied awareness of what is happening in the moment... When motivation goes from external input to inside out experience!

When I know what I want to change, motivation comes easy… True? The other day I had a conversation with a fellow coach. One of his client knows he needs to change, knows what he needs to change, but can get started, he completely lacks the motivation to do it. It sparked the question: Is knowledge, knowing that you need to change enough to change? On change, knowledge, awareness, and sailing the world… Knowledge vs awareness from an embodied experience My simplified take on that is that I don’t think his client really knows: This man, I guess, knows in … Read more

You are the inspiration you are looking for – Integrally Alive Podcast

You are seen... If you knew your choice would inspire thousands of people, how would you live your day today?

What are you the living example for? On sailing, dreams, inspiration, courage, blogs and strangers … When I was a teenager, I had a dream, a very precise and persistent dream, to travel and live on a sailing-boat. It took years, but I eventually did it. I started a blog to keep my family and my friends updated. But it ended up with strangers reading it, and I got some very touching emails of total strangers thanking me to show them it was possible. Seeing my website gave them the permission to dream and the permission to think they weren’t … Read more

You can change today - podcsat 54 Integrally Alive by Claire Wild

If you had only 6 months left to live, what is the most important thing you would change? On change, resistance, motivation, impact… and cancer! One of the most common phrase I hear during my sessions, is:”I know I should…” We often know what we want to change, but knowing is not enough to actually do the changes. Isn’t fascinating to see how in the same situation different persons will react differently? One big reason some decide to, and do change, is that, for whatever reason, they finally see the link between their current situation, and their future situation. (Yeah, … Read more

On being embodied, mindfulness, making coffee and riding bikes… In the conversations around the embodiment conference that took place last month (October 2020), one lady particularly touched me when she shared that it shifted her view on what embodiment was, and that she didn’t need to have the perfect body to be embodied.If you remember my second last podcast (“what is embodiment… to me”), you will guess how happy I was to read that. Yes! Embodiment is not about what body you sculpt, but rather how present … Read more

How to be ready to start – Integrally Alive Podcast

“How will you know when you are ready?” On being and feeling ready, imposter syndrome, and getting started… That is in essence one question that arose in a recent coaching call, when I heard my client say: “I’m not experienced enough, I’m not ready.”Sadly these doubts is wide-spread, and it’s getting us to stop before even getting started. Welcome imposter syndrome, bye-bye action! Back when I was about to take the exam at the end of my Shiatsu training, I found myself in a seminar with mixed levels, paired up for an exercise with a beginner. She was not confident, … Read more
