Feeling Disconnected?

Here’s how to fix that.

Imagine you’re a loose thread tossed into the wind. As you spiral up and down, around and around you find it difficult to gain a sense of the direction you’re headed in.

Where will you land? Will it be a soft landing or will you wind up tangled someplace?

That feeling of being a loose thread is not an uncommon one, particularly when we’re going through a transition, feeling stuck, or just feeling disconnected from ourselves and the world around us.

When I’m not feeling grounded it’s hard to focus and be present. I’m all over the place, not sure if I’m coming or going. Chaos becomes my sidekick, as opposed to Peace and I feel like I just want to come out of my skin. Does that sound familiar?

“Get yourself grounded and you can navigate even the stormiest roads in peace.” — Steve Goodier


Something that helps us become more grounded and less disconnected is being asked a few thought-provoking questions. Here’s why; when we work on answering those questions we re-engage with ourselves and with the present moment. Not to mention we create some cool awareness that we can use to move us from that stuck disconnected state to that more grounded and intentional place.

With that in mind, here are just a few powerful questions to try on for size…(CAVEAT: It’s important not to overthink or judge the answers, just allow whatever is coming up to come out.)

If money and time weren’t a factor, what would you be doing right now?

If you were granted three wishes that were just for you what would you wish for?

What is your greatest asset?

Think of your favorite quote, what makes it your favorite?

What is the greatest challenge you have ever overcome?

What helped you to overcome that challenge?

What’s one topic/interest that truly lights a fire for you?

And it doesn’t have to stop with the questions…. With answers in hand, read over them and look for any commonalities, themes, and learning opportunities. #themoreyouknow

Because the more we know, the more grounded we become.


I never ask anyone to do anything that I haven’t done myself or wouldn’t be willing to do. This post is no exception to that rule. Even though I’m feeling pretty grounded right now, I’m always game to answer questions so here goes…

If money and time weren’t a factor, what would you be doing right now?

No joke, I’d be doing what I’m doing now, writing, coaching, intuitive readings and course creation. I love what I do. The only thing I would add is doing more public speaking and traveling the world.

If you were granted three wishes that were just for you what would you wish for?

If I was granted three wishes I’d ask for… Holy shit this is a hard question to answer. Of course I want world peace and the end of all suffering, but I know, I know… the wishes have to be just for me. Hmmmm….OK…

  1. To be on Super Soul Sunday with Oprah.
  2. The means to build a transformational wellness center in a beautiful, peaceful spot.
  3. A beach house for relaxing and creating.

While it was hard to answer at first, it was actually a fun question to answer.

What is your greatest asset?

This is easy to answer. Hands down it would be my heart because that is where I create from, that is where I coach from and that is where I receive many of my intuitive hits.

Think of your favorite quote, what makes it your favorite?

I’m a quote junkie so picking just one is a huge challenge for me. I think I’ll go with the most current quote that I’ve fallen in love with…

“I’m mostly peace, love, and light… and a little go fuck yourself.” Unknown

It’s one of my favorites because the older I get the less I care about what others think of me. I’m going to share my peace, my love, and my light in the best way I know how, knowing that there will always be someone who thinks I’m weird, doing it wrong, full of crap, etc. and that’s OK. They are absolutely entitled to their own opinion, but I don’t have to buy into that opinion.

What is the greatest challenge you have ever overcome?

Trying to be someone I’m not in order to fit in.

What helped you to overcome that challenge?

What helped was getting up close and personal to my own values, to what makes me, me. Once I was clear on what made me tick, then I could use my values as the gauge for things that fit with me and not the other way around, i.e. relationships, my work in the world. That is truly when I stopped morphing.

What’s one topic/interest that truly lights a fire for you?

I would have to say intuitive development. I love learning new ways to connect with my own intuitive guidance. It’s a big part of who I am and my work in this world. It has not only provided me with unbelievable insight into my own path, relationships, my career, etc. but it has done the same for others. I’ve gained not only peace of mind, but also a sense of grounded-ness from being connected to that intuitive guidance.

Now it’s your turn. Even if you aren’t feeling disconnected have some fun with these questions because you never know what cool insight you’ll gain.

Until next time, I’m sending you all much love and light…
