Christine Hassler is a best-selling author, keynote speaker, master coach, podcast and TV host. She’s committed to helping people live their highest potential. I was on her podcast Over It and On with It, and I have been binging on it ever since I started listening to it. Christine supports individuals in answering the important questions of “Who Am I, What do I want, and How do I get it?” She combines life coaching with spiritual psychology to help people find the answers to live their best lives.
In honor of our first pillar of physical and mental health, this is Mental Health Awareness Month. Christine is the perfect guest for this month. She is all about feeling your feelings, so you can get on with your best life. We talk about having compassion for yourself and allowing yourself to feel without judgement. We also talk about how we can’t change other people, but we can support them with love while we change ourselves. This conversation is packed with wit, wisdom, and real life examples of living your purpose.
- A lot of times we think we’re feeling our feelings but we actually are still suppressing them. When we do feel them, we analyze and judge them.
- Be in a place of compassion with yourself. It’s okay to let it out.
- When we have an emotional situation that is bigger than the situation calls for that means we are in a trigger. It’s probably a big feeling that has been suppressed and not dealt with.
- The only way to soothe our feelings is to feel them. The rational mind cannot soothe our feelings.
- Learn to calm and soothe yourself and release the feeling that you are suppressing.
- Notice your feelings. Allow yourself to feel it, and then ask what do I need. Slow down and notice your feelings.
- We can support other people’s healing by loving them and supporting them unconditionally and doing our own healing.
