One World in a New World with Claudia Noriega Bernstein - Author, Coach, Speaker
As we begin to explore the usual dive into early awareness and self-reflections, Claudia reveals knowing she was different, she just wanted to hide it; wanting to 'fit in' and not stand out. Little by little, she learned to accept those differences and opt for a feeling of belonging instead.
Do you try to 'shrink to fit' in some perceived category the world has shaped for us? Claudia's reflection of observing this in herself on her own journey may find deep resonance with your own.
Zen shares a brief moment in his journey of how he was taught about the difference in the size of the aura, measurable through a certain technique, and the exponential difference between that if being in the past or future compared to that of being in the present. You'll find it fascinating, too.
Exploring the notion of boundaries, Claudia explains that boundaries aren't about teaching people how to behave, they are to protect oneself. She shares some tasty tidbits as she reflects on her life.
Claudia goes on to reveal that learning about herself often came through uncomfortable events and situations with others. How often have you felt like victim, only to learn that you simply made poor choices? Claudia shares some keen observations that are real gems.
How often do you journal? The conversation dips into the common waters of self-reflection. We become our own mentor or teacher and/or nemesis in the process. Claudia mentions her husband and being able to tell when he isn't journaling. Why might that be? Listen in for some insight.
How do you deal with the battle in your head between experience and opinion? Are things coincidental or with reason? Our conversation is flavored with such ponderings.
Enjoy our journey shared and thank you for showing up.
