BEING IN BALANCE
Consciously Creating Abundant Health, Wealth and Happiness in Your LifeSAVE YOUR SPOT - FALL 2023
A 7 Week Live Online Course with Alana Cahoon, Mindfulness Coach, Founder of Grow 2 B U, and Author of Mindfulness, Mantras & Meditations
Discover the ‘3 Ways of Being’ for accessing your inner wisdom to live a life of clarity, vitality, and creative success.
You want to feel alive each and every day with a sense of freedom and purpose.
That’s your natural expression. Your birthright.
You want your life to flow with ease and grace, and trust that everything will be ok.
If you're like me you aspire to achieve balance in your personal and professional life. Making time for your health and fitness. Being recognized as a conscious leader. Nurturing your family and friendships.
Imagine being happy and financially flourishing, while expressing your creative nature.
You want all of the aspects of your life to be in harmony.
But the problem is you don’t have enough time, and the world is filled with uncertainty…that life feels overwhelming.
You feel a responsibility to take care of everyone and everything. At times this feels like a heavy burden to carry.
You may find yourself feeling paralyzed with over-responsibility, foggy and drained of energy.
This is not sustainable and you know it. It’s a downward spiral to burnout.
This could manifest in your life as work issues, dis-ease or even divorce.
In our 24/7 always-on culture, we’re led to believe that in order to succeed we have to work long hours in our profession and be 100% available to our family’s needs. This leaves little time for ourselves.
You may think that you have to be superhuman in order to experience peace, love and success.
You have to be ‘on call’ ALL the time to save your world.
I call this the Superhuman Syndrome. This is unrealistic, yet we still live by it.
But…there is a way out of this. It’s time to reconnect - to you.
The pathway out of overwhelm toward cultivating balance and greater ease in your life is all about coming home to you. This is about making you a priority – to taking better care of yourself – and tuning into your inner landscape/inner wisdom for the answers that will help you create balance inside and out.
This path is all about stepping out of the old story of the superhuman syndrome.
The highest level of our work is our inner work. It is this journey within that creates balance in the totality of our lifetime.
As you clear your inner world, your outer world lands into balance.
Imagine cultivating inner peace to reduce stress and anxiety. Here, you will quiet your mind, and go within to shift your sense of priorities with clarity.
This transformation is viable for you. I’ve guided many clients through it successfully.
That’s why I created the Being in Balance course, to help you navigate all the craziness of our modern, fast-paced world into a new way of being where you’re tapping into and trusting your inner wisdom for a life of clarity, vitality, and creative success.
In this 7-week LIVE online course you will discover how to prioritize your well-being, and bring balance back into your everyday life, creating a sense of inner peace & outer joy.
You’ll also learn how to set realistic boundaries on your time and energy reserve.
Throughout the course, I will personally be guiding you on your path of shifting outdated beliefs that no longer serve you to a creative, clear-minded and open-hearted way of living.
I promise you will create meaningful work, establish healthy boundaries, and trust in your self care. You will find time for yourself, and make your physical, emotional, and spiritual health a priority.
By the end of the course you’ll experience:
- How to access your inner source of wisdom.
- Clarity in living your life purpose intentionally and joyfully.
- Increased vitality through self awareness, stress reduction and exercise.
- The power of setting healthy boundaries around your time and energy reserve.
- The magic behind the law of attraction and realization of your goals.
You will discover a powerful set of tools to bring balance and fulfillment into your everyday life, creating a sense of inner peace and outer joy.
In your newfound state of balance, you will live intentionally, creating an abundance of health, wealth, and happiness.
MY PERSONAL STORY & INVITATION FOR YOU…
I remember working in my fabulous office on another project. It felt great! Except for the fact that I was stressed out.
Burned out. Overwhelmed. Overstretched.
What started out as occasional headaches turned into migraines.
That queasy feeling inside my stomach turned into reflux disease.
And my back. It felt like I was carrying the world. Was I? If I stayed on this path any longer, what was next?
I didn’t have the time to truly relax and enjoy my home and family. Quite the contrary. All I did was work there, too. I was on the go 24/7.
From meals to projects to deadlines. It seemed like my life was: work, eat, work, sleep, work, work, take care of everyone else, work…
I lost all sense of me and what I truly needed to be - healthy, balanced and happy.
What I eventually saw at my lowest moment was that inner harmony was the missing piece. Somehow I lost it along the way.
I realized then that the way out was to go with-IN.
Meditation, the tool I used throughout my earlier life, soon became my saving grace. Waking to positive affirmations, and going to sleep with prayer shifted my path back to my true self.
I began to set healthy boundaries, and created a meditation space in my home.
I learned how to work at a healthy pace with more depth of precision and creativity.
I played more often.
Before stepping in to take care of someone or something, I paused.
As I felt the wisdom within my heart begin to once again awaken, I was able to feel free to live a life of outer joy and balance.
Having done this work for myself and with my clients for the past 12 years, I have been inspired to continue guiding individuals to break out of the superhuman syndrome.
All the answers are here - within each and every one of us.
I invite you to join me and others around the globe to awaken your inner wisdom! So that you can make wise decisions that will serve your highest good. This in turn serves everyone else’s highest good, too.
