Solo Jam Session: How To Avoid Self-Sabotage and Create Sustainable Growth


If you're here, it's because you're meant to expand and evolve. But you're probably also familiar with the resistance that comes with the path of growth.

And when there's resistance in life, our tendency as humans is to either grip onto life and try to control it, suppress it and pretend like everything is fine, or push it away and avoid it completely.

Sound familiar? Maybe you can see yourself in one of these 3 survival strategies? If so, that's okay, we're all human. And part of healing your relationship to resistance is learning to meet all parts of you with love and acceptance.

When we heal our relationship to resistance, and expand our emotional range to hold both the pain and pleasure of growth, so much magic is possible!

You'll find it easier to hold your vision and keep expanding sustainably without collapsing back into your old self. And you can avoid self-sabotage when experiencing explosive growth and quantum leaps.

In this episode, I'm sharing with you a few simple mindset shifts and a powerful practice to start feeling the full range of emotions associated with growth, so that you can create sustainable expansion in your life.

I also dive deeper on:

  • How to hold the duality of pain and pleasure
  • What healthy resistance is and how to work with it to catapult you into your next level
  • How to meet yourself with love when things feel crunchy and overwhelming


I hope this episode supports you in expanding into your next level! Thanks for listening!
