A blog by Claire Standen Coaching
The World is calling for us to step up and lead as powerful women in our families, our workplaces and in our communities. Yet, what we learnt at school was how to follow instructions dutifully, how to get good grades and how to please the people around us. Little chance you were equipped with the skills of tuning in to yourself, or to your higher wisdom. No danger you were empowered with the tools you need to remain grounded, to take chances on building a better life, and a better World while remaining emotionally regulated. Highly unlikely that you had these skills modelled to you, since too few people have them to demonstrate...
Personal change-work has been much belittled by those who don't partake. Why? Because the experience of conciously and purposefully engaging in changing patterns and habits is courageous and sometimes, messy!
However, change is a linear, predictable and planned process, while transformation involves exploration and 'dancing with the chaos of life' which is much less appealing to many but brings the ultimate freedom that so many seek. The kind of freedom we access through transforming our patterns, thoughts and behaviours doesn't rely on external factors being 'just so'. Further to this, it gives us the skillset we need to engage in things that are meaningful to us, even if they're hard, and present us with many challenges. It is these challenges that I want to (r)Evolutionise your relationship to. It is this journey to mental and emotional freedom that I want you to take with me. From 21st April 2023, I'm running a 6 month tranformational group coaching programme called (r)Evolution. You can find out more here.
(r)Evolution: A Manifesto
𝗥𝗮𝗱𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗵𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘁𝘆- We use radical honesty as a way of tapping in to what true for us in this moment.
𝗙𝗲𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘀- We invite and explore our emotional world in its full expression, and in doing so, we leave behind the tyranny of overwhelm and underwhelm.
𝗪𝗲 𝗯𝘂𝗶𝗹𝗱 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗰𝗲𝘀- We accept that in this moment we have what we have. We may meet the moment well resourced, or we may discover a deficit. We do not judge ourselves for not having what we didn't know we'd need.
𝗪𝗲 𝗹𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝘂𝗻𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗱𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆- We start with ourselves first. We give only what we truly have to give. We trust that over time, our capacity to give will grow. We trust that ultimately, it is infinite as it is love.
We take radical responsibility for ourselves- We work in the 'zone of control', which includes our own thoughts, feelings and actions and we make huge gains by doing so.
𝗪𝗲 𝗮𝗰𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗰𝘆𝗰𝗹𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗻𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲- We accept the lows as much as we accept the highs. We honour our nature and we value slowness and softness. We grow in cycles.
𝗪𝗲 𝗱𝗼 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝘀𝘂𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗿 𝘂𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗰𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗮𝗿𝗶𝗹𝘆- and all suffering is unnecessary.
𝗪𝗲 𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗯𝗼𝗱𝘆 𝘄𝗶𝘀𝗱𝗼𝗺- We learn the tools to tap into bodily wisdom and we remain true to what we discover therin.
𝗪𝗲 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲- We rememeber, often, how lucky we are to simply be alive.
𝗪𝗲 𝘃𝗮𝗹𝘂𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽𝘀- We value the gritty as much as the glorious, and we appreciate differences as much as similarities.
𝗪𝗲 𝗱𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘂𝗻𝗳𝗼𝗹𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗼𝗳 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲- and if we trip, we get back up, eventually. We dust ourselves off, we learn, we grow and we adapt.
If (r)Evolution sounds like a container for you to do some of ‘the work’… send me a message. We’ll begin April 21st, but you can sign up now and until the 6th April for £599. Payment plan available.
