Hello! I’ve got a fun interview to share today. I spoke with Maripat Abbott of Manifesting Possibilities about inner peace in December (hence some references in our conversation to the holidays); I’m psyched to introduce you to her + muse on inner peace in the real world.
If I’d heard the words “inner peace” 5 years ago, I’d have inwardly rolled my eyes (and mentally told the speaker to shove off). Inner peace — what the heck was that? Something for a monk in a cave but not for me. I lived in the real world. Today I’m feeling a bit differently about inner peace (and it’s not just for a monk meditating in a cave somewhere). For this shift in perspective, Maripat is an important person to thank.
I met her almost ten years ago. I’d been given a gift certificate for a life coaching session. I wasn’t sure about this life coaching stuff but eventually (and somewhat grudgingly) set up an appointment. Note that at this point in my life, everything going on was a three-ring shit show (though I was trying my best to hide it).
Working with Maripat was one of the first experiences I had of looking outside the box I had unwittingly created (and hated) but that I refused to budge from (never mind it was crushing my soul and body). She was a huge factor in getting my butt moving into a much more happy and peaceful place.
In addition to life coaching, Maripat is a yoga instructor, author, and much more. Check out her work at http://manifestingpossibilities.com/.
Alrighty — let’s get into inner peace. Listen in below; we’re excited to have you join us.
