Life Coaching WISDOM
For wherever you are along your life path, making decisions with confidence helps you to feel good about your future. Each decision you make with confidence helps you to feel reassured, and excited about what you are putting in place – for now – for the future, and to reaffirm what you know about yourself. How do you know with certainty what your right path is? How do you know when you are making a ‘right’ decision? Is it a feeling? A certain knowing? When you know that something is right, how do you know? Does a 'right' decision feel different? What does it feel like in your body? Do you feel a certain confidence about the decision that reassures you it will be the right thing? If ever there was a checklist for how to make the best decisions for your life, I'd like to offer it here.  Let this checklist be a guiding tool to help you in making all of your decisions - and for trusting in your inner knowing to offer you the ‘right’ guidance and wisdom. Join me in the full episode (7+min) for a list of checklist questions to help you make all of the best and right decisions for your life. Let this list help you in all areas of your life. Namaste! xo dorothy

Knowing Your (Right) Path - your Purpose
I appreciate you mentioning that with each decade of life comes significant change and decision making. Sometimes, as you said, we are required to make the decision before we feel prepared but the important thing to remember is to trust your heart. Many times I overthink things but when I pay attention...my heart, my gut feelings, are giving me the answer.

I felt that that will help with the decisions that I will make in the future
I learned to trust my feelings and heart when making a decision and not to be frantic about it

⭐️Unconscious Mind⭐️
Your unconscious mind can dictate your future. If today you are negative you are sabotaging your future self. Grow by giving yourself love “I’m amazing- I’m great-I’m smart-I’m beautiful” self confirm “I am doing it” not “will or going to do it” but now. I’m working out, I’m healthy, I’m meditating.

Contemplation
I felt that this was significant to listen to now simply because I am at a point where I’m going to be making a lot of decisions that can really alter the course of my life. I am going to be graduating and I am constantly on the go. I feel relatively confident in my choices, however, I think I could benefit from some reflection on what I want post graduation and in life in general right now. Am I rushing myself to make these choices because of the pressure of expectation and anxiety reduction in reciting a ‘well mapped plan’ for after high school? I’m not sure & maybe I should take the time decide.

Great Message BUT
I wish these sessions were more longer and had more opportunity to listen to more meditation sessions or sessions period. These sessions are way too thought provoking just for a short amount of time but anywho, I am glad I listened to this because like many of you im trying to find my purpose and trying to deal with change and constantly adapting it kinda gets scary but you just know to trust that process.

Certainty
I learned that I know when I’ve made the right decision, and that when I have given myself the time to sit with the choice to be made and to really think about what I want, the physical feeling knowing - really knowing - is pervasive through my body, mind and heart.

Decisions
This was comforting. I have many big decisions on my plate and it’s good to have the ability to sit with them and let my subconscious chime in.

Choices
Once I make a decision act on it right away. This will allow the Universe to give me the positive feedback I need to follow thru.

Weighing options
Weighing out your options isn’t a bad thing. You’re actually getting a better understanding of who you are and what you expect. You can also weigh out the different pros and cons of the situation. So it’s not always bad when you have different job offers and you wait because you want to weigh out all your options. You’re simply giving yourself time to learn what you expect and want moving forward.

It feels so right...?
I always felt that making the right decision is when your parents told you it was. However, this year I’ve learned that is not the case. Though there is also the fact I never really asked myself “How do I know if I’ve made the right decision”? I guess, after thinking about, the answer is that I feel safe and I feel that my husband and son will be. This is just what my brain tells me, though I plan to learn how my body feels the moment it feels safe.

Knowing Your Wrong Path
It feels good to make a decision confidently, knowing it’s the right choice for me. What about times when my decision is reactive and I make it only because I feel I’m on the wrong path and need a change? Isn’t that just running away? I’ve made that gut reaction decision so many times - avoiding the negative without embracing the positive. Finding a new path when I feel lost and finding myself lost in a new place. Maybe I will never find the Right path, and that’s the hard lesson. There are no right or wrong choices, only consequences.

Life
I just learned that life can sometimes be hard and we feel like we are not ready to fight for it but there's always a voice in me that tell me to not give up you're strong darine you are what you wanna be your life depends on how you see it on your vision

Daydreaming is Manifesting
I was reminded of the importance of meditating on the dreams your have for your life. Being clear on the vision your have for your life ensures that when the time comes to make hard decisions, it will be easier to identify which path best aligns with that vision.

Making Important Decisions
I like the idea that making good decisions come from the heart. What does a good decision feel like? Good question!

Leading with reflection
I remember taking the time to think, sometimes many hours, before making critical decisions. I'll try to incorporate this more into my daily life.

AmeriCorp
I took a leap of faith and followed my heart. For the past three months I have been learning how to give voice to a silenced group. My self-confidence and self-worth have increased. AmeriCorp is just what I needed to recover and recharge.

Knowing Your Right Path
I don't know why, but this made me angry. The audio kept asking me questions I kept hoping they would answer. It left me in confusion and made my one audio per day useless. I feel worse than I did coming into this.

Right!?
The thing that has made the most difference that I have noticed is, paying attention to my attention. To be able to have the ability to notice when my focus has been altered. To understand if I did it or if someone influenced the focus. I work on redirecting to what is it that I need and want. That is when I am the happiest. Letting go of others fictional thoughts and opinions. To remember I make the storm, not anyone else. I rather not weather the storm but, decide the forecast for the moment. Smaller sections of the day, makes it more manageable for me. The details are needed but not as much as the end product is appreciated. Allow the beauty of the day show its self instead of making it be a certain way. One can not control but only guide the future. ~Angel~ Namaste

When I know something is “right” it feels right. It feels like freedom and security. Gives me a great deal of confidence.

decisions
this really helped me to reflect on many milestones that i have come upon recently in my life journey and many that i am approaching. i realize that the decisions i make will have outcomes that can and will lead me to even more opportunities and choices to make. it's all in making those decisions wisely and meditating on how they will affect you in your life's course. take time to meditate and reflect on past experiences to apply what you've learned to new future steps so that you can make beneficial decisions for yourself

That was awesome! These defiantly help. It was very good exAclty what I needed surprisingly. Making a decision not knowing if it is right or not. Letting the whole world know what I want. Thank you, Aura. I really do love this app.❤️

Deciding...
I need to listen to this one again. Dorothy brings up some excellent points on decision making! This is the one thing that separates really good parents from just OK parents, teaching their children how to make good decisions. Many people have a hard time deciding anything and thus often end up living out someone else’s decisions (bosses, spouses, parents, etc.). It is not overly difficult: 1) Choose what you want to be, do or have - (this can be the hardest part, but have fun with it by dreaming big!) 2) Explore your options to get what you want. (You may not have to invent a new wheel, but maybe just modify an existing one) 3) Research what others have done so far, but do not be limited by Their results (Were they successful? Why did they fail? What did they learn? Will they try again? ) 4) Make your Decision (& surrender to it, “I will until...”) 5) Make it Right! (Commit to work as long as it takes & adjust as necessary until you Win or learn what to do differently next time) 6) Have fun! Very few decisions are life or death, so relax, lighten up & take time to smell the flowers along the way. 7) Teach others how to Decide for themselves You can read more on this in my book due out this fall! I know, can you believe a shameless commercial,right?! ❤️☮️🍀

How I used to be vs. how I am now
I USED to be a hand-wringer, agonizing over decisions to be made. Now? I’m MUCH more impetuous...jumping on decisions big or small with a fervent kind of maniacal speed. I DO still fret quite a bit, but usually over the smaller things, while jumping on bigger things...hopefully not to my detriment! I DO do a lot of after-the-fact worrying, which I don’t like! It keeps me from enjoying or performing well the things I HAVE decided to take action on! I’m finding the new me to be almost too different for my own liking! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Knowing Your Life Purpose
I need to follow my heart! I don’t have a clear path yet on what I need to do to get there but I am now open to my heart’s calling & purpose. I have begun in faith and will continue to meditate/pray on it often as I continue on this journey to fulfill my purpose.

I felt so calm, peaceful, radiant and refreshed.
I really noticed my thoughts and they were good, noble, kind, trustworthy and loving. I learned that as a spiritually and emotionally healthy woman of integrity it’s so important for me to remain open to new life lessons, teachings, practises and experiences as I’m really enjoying the meditations and reflecting afterwards on the people, places and things I’m grateful for. I realise today, that although I don’t pretend to understand the world we live in, or why certain things happen the way they do, there are so many truly beautiful people to meet and share life with, beautiful places to visit and beautiful experiences to enjoy. God is good.

Taking time
Sitting with your thoughts and syncing them with the Eternal Divine within you definitely leads to better decision making. When this is practiced over time, you find that even decisions that need to be made in a hurry can be made with more confidence and peace.

Hopeful Thursday 9-20-18
I am truly blessed! It has been a long trip and I’m not home yet. I had to extend it because of family matters. Anyways, this falls right in the category with decision masking. My uncle was misdiagnosed 3 times here in his small town hospital and then we finally took him to the big hospital where there said he was dying. He was going in cardiac arrest amongst other things. So, as a result my decision was to clean his house because he couldn’t come home to a dirty house. Thanks Aura, Have a nice day Everyone 😀

Act with confidence
When you are clear about what you want and act with confidence your subconscious mind will find a path to get you to your goals.

Choice
Whether you decide to change a life path or see it out, don’t forget to make a conscious choice. Do not sit in limbo, this just prolongs the choice and at times let’s it slip away. Do not let your journey through your memories be one of regret, embrace those decisions and learn from the ones that don’t work to make better choices for the future.

Decisions
Do I feel confident about my decisions? Sa totoo lang, I just bear with my decisions. Kasi hindi ko alam kung tama ba 'yon, pinaninindigan ko na lang kasi tapos naman na, wala na akong magagawa para baguhin pa. I just learn to live with whatever decision I make.

Life's Choices/Purpose
I've lived my life from a feeling of scarcity. Didn't finish college as i was already making more money than friends with Degrees. Married young and for the wrong reasons. Stayed in upwardly Mobil positions that kept me paid well, earned respect of a title. But I was not passionate about. My passion has always been to help others, but the need for income and no degree kept me pigeon holed in 1 or 2 industries. Now at 57, I want to find that place where I succeed am paid well and absolutely love what I do. To mind come 3 things • life coaching • marital counseling • equestrian/ animals in a ranch setting to help people with balance, TBI. Emotional well being. Today I have a breakfast interview to take the 2nd of 2 90 day contracts still in the healthcare field. The first is in Hospice and I could do that full time. This is with a DME company that also does custom ambulatory equipment for people in need. They may lead with full time. I am going to suggest the contract position at a higher pay for the area. This next 90 days I will decide while being paid where my passion takes me

All I can say is wow
My family has experienced a horrible tragedy and every is dealing with it in their own way. I’m not sure we will ever get over this but through meditation I can see that it will help us all to get grounded for ourselves first so we can go out and do so many amazing things separately and together. I will share this with my wife, daughter and my completely amazing grandchildren of which I have 5 and my great grandsons and promote and teach all generations to come. I can feel that this will help us on our path to our rebirth. I am surrounded by so many incredible individuals, watch out universe here we come!

Respect
In 3rd grade we only had one rule in the classroom, and that so happened to be respect. It’s such a broad concept that links everything together, and that has always stuck with me throughout the years. Recently I’ve been trying to find inner peace though my complex decisions that I’ve had to make, and there’s only so few left that understand the meaning of respect 😑 Everybody please just accept each other, and come together for the greater good ✌️💜🙏😇☀️
