83: The Choice to Grieve (Book Foreword with Raychel Perman, Part 2)

Tragedy brings grief. It is a natural cycle that every woman must go through when something or someone dies in her life. Every season of suffering brings with it the choice to heal and the choice to grieve. You can try and avoid it but there are serious consequences and the grief never really goes away- it just compounds. You bury it alive.  And I have watched enough scary movies to know that never ends well. Today’s podcast episode is part 2 of the brand new foreword for the second edition of the book, She Who Overcomes. We pray this encourages you today…

82: The Choice to Heal (Book Foreword with Raychel Perman, Part 1)

Your ability to overcome and rise up is directly related to your choices. Specifically, the choice to grieve and the choice to heal. Grief and healing are equal parts tough and tender. They require vulnerability and tenacity. But they are not the same. They cannot be skipped. And, you will often find yourself walking both paths at the same time.

81: How to Trust Your Intuition

“The ability to hear your intuition and trust it is a quality that separates good leaders from great leaders. Your instincts matter. Your discernment matters.” Today’s solo cast episode is from Coach Raychel – listen in as she gives you two quick steps on how to trust your intuition!



Coach Raychel’s tips on learning to trust your intuition:

There was a time in my life when I didn’t trust my intuition at all. My discernment has been questioned by weak leaders in my life who were intimidated by my intuition. My ability to trust my gut and my instincts got more and more dull the more I kept myself in traumatic situations. I thought I couldn’t trust my intuition anymore. I was told I was wrong, when I knew I was right. I was told my feelings were used to manipulate and couldn’t be trusted.

If you have a hard time trusting yourself and your intuition because of past experiences, or you simply have never really leaned into developing this essential quality of good leaders, then let me encourage you to try these two steps to help you not only HEAR that still small voice- but also to trust it.

Step #1- Slow Your Brain Down

We are programed by the society that we live in that busy is best. The problem is when our brain is always “On” it can never pause long enough to tune into what we are feeling. 

One of the best ways to slow your brain down and lean into your intuition is through exercises like yoga and meditation. When we slow our brains down and focus on our movement and our breath (like in Yoga) or on a single thought like meditation we have a change to hear what our heart is really feeling.

Step #2- Ask Yourself the RIGHT Questions

It might sound crazy but asking yourself questions is a great way to learn to trust your intuition. Once you quiet your mind you can start to explore what you are really feeling. 

For the trauma survivors listening, The ability to disconnect from our own thoughts, feelings, and identity is involuntary and strong. Because of this, asking yourself the right question is crucial. That ability to disconnect is called dissociation and it is a learned coping mechanism to survive you need to ask yourself questions to keep the mind-body connection strong. But you can relearn this critical skill. 

As I was researching how to ask yourself questions that your intuition can give answers to, I learned that quieting you mind is crucial. (innerself.com) You must be able to be still and quiet and not emotional to ask the right question. Some people do better with asking yes/no questions. But many do not. You will come up with a logical answer and not what your gut feels. Try open ended questions that are not emotionally charged, like “What can I do to get more customers for my business?” or “What can I do to improve my next relationship?”

And then pay attention to the first thought you have. It could be a feeling, a sensation, a picture, or even a word that rises in you. Whatever you experience is your intuition telling you how you feel.

The ability to hear your intuition and trust it is a quality that separates good leaders from great leaders. Your instincts matter. Your discernment matters. Let today be THE day that you choose to activate these steps and trust your intuition!

With grace & grit,

~Coach Raychel

79: Debunking the Myths of Financial Planning with Adam Lucas

“90% of financial planning is building habits.” These are the wise words of my friend, Adam Lucas. We met via LinkedIn and thought a podcast episode about the myths of financial planning would be a great resource to you! Adam is a Financial Advisor with Northwestern Mutual in Denver, Colorado. Adam and his wife, Emily, have a unique view of financial planning due to Emily having cystic fibrosis. This conversation is full of encouragement, tips, and truth about what it takes to gain control of your finances and build for your future.



3 Myths of Financial Planning (by Adam Lucas)

  • Myth #1: Financial planning is only for the wealthy. Truth: Wealth management isn’t the sole province of the rich. Even if you’re just starting your career, you’re still building wealth.
  • Myth #2: DIYers don’t pay fees, so they come out ahead. Truth: Not always the case! A Financial Advisor can help coach you on your financial goals and how to reach them.
  • Myth #3: Financial planning only means helping with investing. Truth: The end game of financial planning is to balance your dreams with your financial obligations and everyday expenses – while making sure you’re enjoying life at the same time.

Connect with Adam Lucas:

Adam Lucas, a Colorado native, joined Northwestern Mutual in 2019. He lives in Denver with his wife, Emily, along with their cat, Morris, and two dogs – Peyton and Surrey.

Because of his personal experiences with cystic fibrosis within his own family, Adam has built his financial advising practice around helping create holistic financial plans that are tailored to a client’s specific goals. Adam’s wife, Emily, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as a baby. Emily’s younger sister, Jessica, passed away from complications due to CF in 2014 at the age of 21. As a result, Adam & Emily have put an emphasis in their own lives on creating a balance between enjoying life today and creating habits to save for their future. His goal is to help his clients do the same – to spend life living.

Outside of his career, Adam is addicted to golf, and has fallen victim to the idea that he’ll someday have a consistently good swing. He & Emily enjoy travelling, exploring Colorado’s outdoors, and attending Colorado Avalanche & CU Buffs games. Adam & Emily stay involved with their local Cystic Fibrosis Foundation chapter, and participate in several fundraising & networking events throughout the year.
