Can you hear the whispers? They are unique and personal. Free only to you… intuitive and intelligent and priceless. Being still allows us to truly hear. Powerful. ~Randi Levin Coaching
Can you hear them? Soft hints of our desires and dreams, barely audible fragments of the messages that defined and shaped our yesterday, our hopes for tomorrow and our realities of today. Whispers are all around us. They taunt us and dare us to take action, they tempt us with “what if’s” and they etch pictures on both our minds and our hearts. We all have them. Whispers provide us with a very powerful, barely there, intuitive understanding of our deepest wants and opportunities. Can you hear them yet?
Whispers are the soft voices in our heads. Our inner child, our Forgotten Woman or Man, championing for us to listen, abandon limits, and take action. Once you make this introspective and deep reconnect, what you gain back is a more intimate and promising understanding of yourself. Here are the 3 things that we all must do in order to actually hear these forgotten words.
Believe. In order for whispers to be heard, we must believe that they exist. Being mindful to the clues and nuances in our daily life unearths a cascade of possibilities. What do we want to let go of? What do we want to embrace? Where is fear blocking our path? What would we do if only we could?
Recharge: Plugging in forces us to turn on our commitments to ourselves. In order for whispers and messages to be heard, our minds need to be in the “on” position, free of disengagement and ready for choice. We need to be in the moment and free of last year’s baggage and next year’s worries. Think about it. If turned off, none of our electronic devices would operate and the same is true with our own thoughts. If we are ready to receive abundance, we can receive abundance.
Play: Play the game! Being savvy to the secret message of whispers provides us with a ticket to actively attend our lives! Front row seats to witness the world in a personal and meaningful manner. Being open to play frees us to try and experience new things, to appreciate the day we are in with gratitude and thought, and to explore each and every moment. Hearing the whispers in your life allows for you to take action and live with intention. Borrow from childhood by letting play and exploration into your life.
When we turn down the noise in our busy lives, we can turn up the volume of the whispers all around us. These messages both internal and external are always there for us. So, where in your life are you missing the messages simply because your fears may be blocking the audio? What do you want to set free and what do you want to embrace? Only you have the power to decode your own whispers. Choice is your champion.

What have you accepted within your life, physically and/or mentally? What are you still working on accepting?
Believing in yourself is one of the most empowering things especially spiritually. When we think we can, we can achieve so much more. Hearing our inner voices without excuses allows us to reconnect to what is most authentically at our core. This is so realistically our foundation. I think that we are each always working. As a work in progress, I personally strive to keep on listening to the whispers…because they change.That is the piece that no one tells you!
What have you learned to appreciate about yourself and/or within your life, physically and mentally? What are you still working on to appreciate?
During my own reinvent a few years ago, I realized just how much I am capable of as a woman, a business owner, a wife and a mom. Sometimes I am gobsmacked at just how much I have achieved in such a short time. I am very intuitive and I know that my work ethic is really strong…seeing it in action as a business owner has been really uplifting. Still working on appreciating imperfect as an inroad to balance in my life and knowing when to let go of controlling situations.
What is one of your most rewarding achievements in life? What makes YOU most proud? What goals and dreams do you still have?
One of my most rewarding achievements in life so far was my ability to hear the whispers in my own life! For years, I waited for the perfect moment to begin, to reinvent, to start something new. When I reconnected to my inner self, to the whispers that I missed, I knew immediately what I needed to do next…this was my compass! When I connected to the whispers in my life…what I got back in the process was me! My future goals and dreams are to keep listening to myself, to know that I did it before and I can keep on doing it again!
We all have imperfections, so we think. The truth–we are all perfectly imperfect. What are your not-so-perfect ways? What imperfections and quirks create who you are–your Identity?
My identity is made up of the things I do really well punctuated with the things that scare me the most! I believe at my roots that you get up, dress up and show up…so one of my strategies for success is to act, look, communicate success. In back or in front of that success is a possible defeat. Life is a roller coaster and as I age, I am getting better at navigating the ups and downs and knowing that if we stay on the ride we always reach our destination! By the way…roller coasters are out of my comfort zone!!
“I Love My…” is an outlet for you to express and appreciate all the positive traits that make you…well… YOU! Sharing what you love about yourself will make you smile, feel empowered, and uplift your spirit and soul. (we assure you!) Identity challenges you to complete the phrase “I Love My…?”
I love my ability to inspire and motivate others. It makes me so happy I actually feel like I am dancing inside when I see light bulbs go off in the heads of my clients during coaching or in a workshop session. I change lives! I love that about my life!
