This week's show is with Shanti Zimmerman. Shanti is a coach who facilitates the crafting of boundaries, emotional resiliency and ownership of a life worth living. What I personally adore about Shanti is how she's so fully expressed and how OK she is with who she is. In this show we explored giving yourself permission to be who you are. We went into how we choose that (because it's very much a choice), creating boundaries, being able to continue being ourselves in the face of other people's disapproval of how we're showing up.
What you'll learn from this episode:
Choosing to give yourself permission to be yourself - it really is a choice, there isn't a magical moment where it happens to us, it's a choice we can make in any moment to take responsibility for ourselves and what we're putting out into the world.
Start speaking to learn what your voice is. We don't need to wait until we have this crystallised sense of who we are and what our voice is before we start speaking ourself into the world. We can be responsible for our impact without shaming or making ourselves wrong for how our actions have landed on others. We have the choice to take full responsibility to be open to receive what the other person feels and to take an action to move things into different place.
Shanti sees boundaries as a vital aspect to being fully you, it's about having an internal sense of feeling right with yourself in alignment with your values. It's doesn't need to be something that pleases anyone else in the world, if you feel right with yourself then then that's the boundary right there.
