Devotion to the Dream: What to stop so you can really start with with Charlyn Reihman

Ep. 75

Is there something you’ve thought about starting or changing in your life, but haven’t quite managed to let the bull out of the pen yet? 


How long have you been sitting with it?

At one point or another, we’ve all been tapped on the shoulder by some seemingly far-fetched dream of transitioning into something new. But, actua

lly following through with it….why does that seem soooo difficult? 


As much as you might crave that motivating “new project” feeling, or want to initiate the career revamp you’ve been flirting with for years, or maybe even throw your hat back into the dating game and find yourself on that first date which, before you know it, has turned into 20, we know that change requires more than wishful thinking. 


Activating ourselves to walk that first mile is always the hardest part. 


We allow “what-if’s” to take up space in our heads, and it can get overwhelming real quick. But, rather than throwing in the towel, we’ve got to somehow find the will-power to keep going.


Creator’s gotta create. 


So, what is it, exactly, that we need in order to follow through on our hearts desires? 


If we want to know how women are able to find the energy to begin anew, and how they find the time to prioritize what’s important, we need to see it working for someone else.


Today’s guest is author, healer, teacher, and teacher-trainer, Charlyn Reihman. She’s a passionate yoga, meditation, self-care, and healing instructor who also leads classes, workshops, retreats, and private one-on-one sessions all over the world. Her recently published book, Walking the Path of Love , is based on the core teachings of Swami Kripalu. 


In this episode, Karlee opens the conversation with Charlyn, naturally, about the process of beginning. Charlyn shares the wisdom of her experience around knowing what to stop and where to start when you’re ready to fully devote yourself to that dream that’s been tapping you on the shoulder. She’ll tell you how to find the right kind of support that’ll not only get you through that first mile, but also carry you over the finish line.


If you’re ready to walk the path of devotion towards something new, then this is the episode for you.

The Boundary Bandwagon: How to make heart-driven decisions and connect with boundary-supportive community

Ep. 97
Your partner has had a tough week at work, so you stayed up late (even though you have an early conference call) baking their favorite cookies before sneaking them into a little heart-shaped box.Your best girlfriend is having relationship woes...again. So you put down the novel you’ve been waiting to read all day so that you can be there for her, on the other end of the phone.Your boss needs you to be available Saturday to onboard a new client, so you reluctantly bow out of the picnic your new neighbors invited you to join that afternoon.You know there’s nothing you love better than a good night’s sleep, a great book, and getting outside.But this week, you’re not getting any of it.It’s true that we can’t control what happens outside of ourselves.But we can control what happens within ourselves.And conversations about boundaries start within ourselves.Today, Karlee welcomes Dana Lemay, the Head of School for the Boundary Academy. Dana is a real-life boundary pro who courageously left her “looks good on paper” career to find a life that represented more of what really mattered to her. In 2019, she founded the One-Minute Minimalist to help other women declutter the unnecessary and embark upon a more values-driven life experience.In this episode, you’ll learn how to discern whether a decision you’re making is being guided by your head or your heart. You’ll understand why that knowledge holds an important clue in pointing to where boundaries need to be drawn. And most importantly, you’ll learn how to set the emotional boundaries that need setting within your work, your family circles, and your friends.Boundaries matter because it’s within that space where we’re able to nourish ourselves.If you’re ready to learn how how to engage more of your internal resources so that you don't get stuck in a cycle of self-doubt, worry, or always saying “yes”, then this episode is for you.What You’ll Learn in This Episode:What it feels like to lead with your heart (14:02)The physical sensation of a boundary being crossed (15:36)Our human discomfort of not being in control (19:42)Why rest takes courage (25:10)How to be a one-minute minimalist (30:46)One simple way to declutter your schedule right now (39:19)People Mentioned in this Episode:Nancy LevinConnect with Dana Lemay:dana-lemay.comResources Mentioned in this Episode:RSVP FOR THE FREE BOUNDARY PANEL: September 20th, 7pm ESTEpisode 15: Building the Habit of Courage: How to stop enduring what drains you with Dana LemayEpisode 32: Curing the Knee Jerk “Yes”: Doable Boundaries That Will Set You Free with Nancy LevinSend your Audio Comments and Questions to anitza@everybodythrive.comConnect With Karlee:WebsiteLinkedInInstagramMessy and Magnificent is produced by the folks at Ginni Media.
