I am a Life Coach

I always think I am suppose to be going in a certain direction. Like, Yes, this is finally the way! I went through yoga teacher training then, “my” plan: Start teaching donation based yoga, grow it, eventually start up my own center=bring my dream of having a holistic retreat center to life.

But, life never works by “my” plan.  My classes didn’t build, so I decided to stop putting the energy into them.  I ask, did I give up too early? ( I get frustrated fast).  No, that decision felt right, when something weighs me down is a sign to step back.  The question that looms, maybe the path I thought I was on, was really not the one for me?

I am so passionate about yoga, meditation and helping people discover their unique gifts so they can go out and soar on their own journey’s.  I so want to say, “You can do this!  I was a depressed, emotional wreck! I did it, anyone can, and these are the ways…”

I have desperate energy going into this– I want to help, I want to help, I want to help…my god, that would drive me away, not draw me near.

I always go back to the question, “When I was at my lowest, what did I want in my life?”  I wanted unconditional support, I wanted someone to listen, and not tell me how to do it, but guide me in listening to, and trusting, my own inner guidance.  Following what I believe to be right has always made me feel empowered.

I have wanted others to figure it out for me. I have wanted others to tell me what direction to take. But it was only when I saw that I already knew how to do it, that there was an inner voice guiding me to what was right for me, did the decision and choices I made feel 100% for me.

“Hi, my name is Kelly Garrigan and I am a Life Coach who uses the practices of yoga, meditation, nutrition and journaling to aid you in finding the hidden jewels that are buried deep within you”.

The world is waiting to hear from you. Life is waiting for you to express your greatness. Take the reigns and step out.

On the Path of the Butterfly

Morning Insights

This post is dedicated to my bestie Amanda Litts-you are always inspiring me to stay on the fun filled path of the butterfly-LOVE YOU!!!

I am aligning with the calling of my higher self. I have my butterfly wings on and am ready to float around the world, collecting stories and insights as I go.

Everyone has this unique calling in them. Think about it, is your heart calling you to sit at a desk, analyzing numbers, making sales, providing amazing customer service? Probably not. You are called to express the amazingness in you.

Don’t look to your current friend groups or your family for support-they will tell you that traveling the world on a shoe string budget is absolute lunacy.  Some people think its scary to travel 50 miles out of town let alone around the world.

I have met the butterflies–The people that are soaring on the current of their soul calling. They took leaps of faith. How? Each story is as unique as the individual.

Go out and find the butterflies. They are out there and you will be drawn to one another, even if for a brief moment.  Because the energy exchange between you will provide a spark of motivation to keep flying along on your butterfly path.

You are probably asking, “ok, what the hell do you want to do in the first place? What are these dreams that you keep talking about?”  Here they are in a nutshell people. The things that I wrote up on the left side of the sheet of paper at Kyle Cease’s EOL.

The things that make my heart beat with excitement-listed in no specific order

  • Live life as one continuous adventure of fun and laughter
  • Touch people’s life with yoga
  • Write light hearted stuff on the insights I receive on life from traveling and interactions with fellow butterflies
  • Open a holistic wellness center for healing and soul strengthening (the warrior training institute)
  • Coach people into their amazingness
  • Invest in growing-self growth, soul growth, expanded vision
  • Dance and play my tambourine
  • Play the piano
  • Read a poem in public
  • Love more
  • Paint this fucking life with so many stories, it creates 20 books.
  • Healing retreats
  • Open my grandsons life to unlimited possibilities

Here is a big secret for this beautiful butterfly-I have no clue what I am doing.  I have no clue how to  get where I want to go or bring to life the things that are in my heart. And, I am ok with it. I AM OK WITH NOT KNOWING!!!  In fact, I hope I screw this shit up.  I am on a mission to screw this up-making it ok to mess up, trip up, not get it right, learning as I go and not waiting to find the ‘perfect’ way of doing.

This I do know–I have a lot to do, got my wings on, I am ready to fly.
