Conscious Awareness

“C” Conscious Awareness

Begin your journey by building your internal conscious awareness of how authentic you are in your relationships and interactions. Do you hide your feelings? Are you unsure of your values or how you’re living relative to your values? There are many reasons why people disconnect or connect superficially—get honest about how you’re showing up on the inside.


“U” Understand

Once you’ve surveyed how you show up, explore the reasons why. When do you feel unsafe being yourself? What experiences or patterns led you to wear a mask to survive? What do you truly value, and do your actions align? Your answers in this are essential to reconnecting to yourself—get curious about why you’re showing up inauthentically.


“R” Renew

Now that you’ve got perspective, renew authentic connections with yourself and others. Create regular connection habits and practices. Rewrite your operating system with an embedded safety check and clear boundaries. The journey to authenticity relies on creativity, respect, growth, and acceptance —get playful with introducing your true self to the world.


“E” Expand

With newfound confidence, know that you are loved and accepted. (If you falter in that belief, you have a framework to revisit and new authentic connections to turn to.) How can you expand your connections? How can you encourage others to create cycles of authenticity in the world? The ripple effect is real—get expansive about the power of authentic connection.

Authenticity Is Your Superpower — Are You Ready To Wield It?

Authenticity is essential to connection. To be authentic, we must feel safe and have healthy coping mechanisms. I have a framework to guide you—the path to connection begins with conscious awareness.
