“Know Thyself.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life is all about learning who you are…your TRUE and AUTHENTIC self…the REAL you. We know when we’ve met a part of our real selves when our body buzzes, our energy revs up, we lose track of time and/or we are tirelessly fascinated.

There is a “knowing” within us that sometimes brings us to happy tears of relief because we have discovered something about ourselves that we really knew all along. For example, I had the experience of being relieved to know that there was a name for the type of person I was when I learned I was an introvert as defined by the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a personality type instrument based on Carl Jung’s body of work about communication preferences.

I was lucky enough to work for a company who valued each and every team member and wanted to find ways to keep productive honest communication flowing up the line and down the line. Introverts are energized by down time.

Extroverts are energized by being around people. This company valued both types and found ways for both types to thrive. Knowing this freed me from self judgement and thus, a super power was born that gave me the gift of navigating my energy with more ease and acceptance. I was able to schedule down time as a strategy for success at work and in my personal life.

This is just one example of the super powers I possess. Others include being an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) and therefore very empathic and intuitive. I am also hardwired for creating organized spaces that inspire clarity, ease and flow. This has been a trait I’ve leaned into since I was very young.

We all have super powers. Do you know yours? I facilitate the process of uncovering them with my clients.
