Divorce and Self-Care 

Why it’s Necessary—Not Only for the Clients 

Self love hug as esteem and confidence for being woman tiny pers

I’ve been blessed to create a circle of industry professionals who have taught me so much since I  decided to specialize in divorce mortgage planning. One member of my tribe, who has also become a  very dear friend, is a collaboratively trained family lawyer and mediator. She’s one of the best and has  been instrumental in opening my eyes to the pitfalls that people can get caught up in during the divorce  process. I know, I’m practically gushing, but she’s just incredible at what she does. The way she  incorporates a storytelling session for her divorcing couples as part of her standard practice is extremely  insightful. She explains options to them that they may not have ever considered before meeting her.  

Recently, she invited me to sit in on two of her very educational consultations with two separate  couples. She talked through the different types of divorce and options available for every type of family  going through it. She offered thought-provoking ideas and possibilities they never knew existed,  including alternatives to divorce and legal options that may work for them. This empowerment is crucial  for couples who believe that the law dictates the process… when actually, they can be in the driver’s  seat to navigate their own situation.  

I found the entire experience fascinating. I have learned many things that I now incorporate into my  own lane of business. Offering clients empathy and the space for contemplation and options is  necessary, even when the couple may not realize it’s something they need. More often than not,  couples contemplate their situation for months, years, maybe even decades before actually initiating  any course of action. Unfortunately, it isn’t until then that they realize there isn’t only one cut and dry  way to go about it—if they have the right team in place.  

As I sat through her presentations, silently observing as the couples talked about their journey, I was so  intrigued by the way they would smile as they thought back on the early days, when they first met, and  how it all started. As the discussion unraveled, they would both jump in and complete each other’s  sentences or correct each other on the small details of the stories. It happened in both presentations for  both couples, and I was instantly transported back to years ago when I was contemplating my own  divorce. We tried for years to live unconventionally and get through each day while still holding on to  hope that something might change or break open for the benefit of our children. Had I known there  were so many options, it could have been a much healthier environment and time frame for everyone  involved. If only we had known to approach the process in a way similar to the one I was witnessing with  my present-day colleague leading the way.  

As I continued to listen, the couples would progress through their story and get to the point where  things pivoted and moved into a darker and more hopeless situation. One spouse remains quiet while  the other one—who has already processed the demise of the relationship—continues down the path of  how things have changed and how it just isn’t working for them anymore. They finish their part of the  story, while the other spouse seems like they might not have known everything their significant other  has been feeling. They may be hearing some of these things for the first time while sitting in that room  with two other people present. The room gets thick with anxiety and sadness. I could see the guilt and shame on their faces for existing in a space they never thought they’d be. The attorney allows them to  continue the story, but doesn’t interfere to counsel them, as she knows her place. She isn’t a therapist,  but she does need them to feel the gravity of the decision they will ultimately make. They need to be  prepared for everything they will need to unpack and unravel before they start the transition of divorce. 

Sitting in that room and seeing it unfold like this, it hit me like a bolt of lightning. Not only is the couple  feeling the toxic air and energy around them . . . so are the professionals who are helping them. I  realized how much the divorce attorneys, counselors and coaches must absorb on a daily basis. Before  any final decisions are reached, I imagine how much the negative emotions and conflict must somehow  affect them as well. I also feel it as their mortgage professional because of the emotions attached to the  martial home, but I think they we are all affected on a different level.  

The very same week, while sitting with another attorney discussing this very subject, he mentioned that  he integrates recommendations to his clients to start meditating, practicing yoga, and using therapeutic  breathing techniques. I was impressed with the way he guides his clients to a healthier place to shift  their energy. 

If you are reading this, you may be someone who has gone through divorce, someone contemplating  divorce, or you work in the divorce space like me. Regardless of who you are, please take care of  yourself. Especially if you’re surrounded by it on a daily basis. Even if you’re just someone’s confidant… a  friend or family member of someone going through it, it will affect you. Negativity, stress and emotion  can permeate your space. It’s easy to allow it to shape and determine how you view or move through  your own world.  

We must treat divorce the same way we would work through any other loss or tragedy. It became so  clear to me through these two particular instances, and I’m so grateful to these colleagues for teaching  me by example.  

When I reflect on my own divorce, I was grateful to learn about the world of self-healing, self-reflection,  and energy work. It helped me through those difficult times. I eventually reached a place where I  understood that my marriage was a season of my life that gave me some wonderful memories, two  beautiful children and 20 years of growth. I had a better understanding that the relationship was ending  as we knew it, but this person—the father of my children—would always be in my life and our family  would just look very different moving forward.  

This family law attorney I mentioned earlier told me, “Even if my client doesn’t embrace this for  themselves, it is my priority to practice this. I am working and serving a community of people who are in  pain, anxious, sad, full of grief, angry, and carrying a high level of negative emotions. I cannot allow that  to penetrate my space and energy.” The old adage is true—we need to put the oxygen mask on  ourselves first before we can truly help others. This rang so true to me at that moment. We cannot save  the world from experiencing pain, but we can open up possibilities to guide people to work within  themselves and self-reflect. That is an enormous part of self-care. The goal is to get out of your own way  and shift the voice inside your head to a more compassionate voice, a voice that is your own biggest  cheerleader. These are steps toward achieving emotional intelligence. This is a daily practice. As you get  better at navigating it, you will find your own inner peace. Whether you are a person going through a  divorce, or a professional helping someone on that journey, be kind to yourself.  

I’ve always been an advocate for self-care, I just never knew I could integrate it into my business like  this. Thanks to those professionals who have exuded this in your daily work life, reminding me that we  can all make a difference in more ways than one.

Women supporting woman is an incredible gift. I find that the relationships, bonds and friendships that I have built while helping others make sense of things during a life transition and what can be a very dark and challenging time makes my work extremely fulfilling. If I can help someone to be a little bit less stressed and shine some light on a subject that might feel daunting and overwhelming then I have done what I have set out to do. Surrounding myself with a tribe of like minded people women is what gives me the drive in my day to continue to pursue my passions.

Psychological Safety

Phycological Safety in the Work Place

Self love hug as esteem and confidence for being woman tiny pers

I’ve been hearing one thing over and over from people in all industries: Employees aren’t staying with companies, and if they are, they are doing the bare minimum at their jobs. When organizations look at the problem with employees as being a lack of motivation, the solutions are obviously going to be geared toward how they can bring back some of that motivation. Unfortunately, this kind of approach only hits on a superficial issue and doesn’t get toward the root cause; it’s merely a band-aid. Lack of motivation is a symptom of the larger, underlying issue.

Individual workers wind up feeling unmotivated for a multitude of reasons. Some feel that way because they don’t believe they are valued, or that their boss(es) believe they have potential to grow within their position or company. Others simply don’t feel comfortable or safe in their work environment, as they’ve been continually put in situations with high targets to hit and/or given ultimatums. However, all of these reasons do signal one thing: that psychological safety has not been fostered strong enough within their organization to address these problems.

“Wait, what is psychological safety?” Put simply, Psychological safety is a deeper level of trust.

On the most basic level of trust, I can say “I trust you to accomplish ____ task(s).” Having psychological safety, though, is the level in which workers are comfortable enough within their work environment to take interpersonal risks, such as voicing their opinions, trying a new approach, offering a suggestion or perspective, speaking up about a concern… and, here’s the kicker, they don’t have fear of being reprimanded or seen as less valuable for doing so. So, even if the thought, idea or approach doesn’t work or isn’t used, workers are in fact valued more for sharing their thought, concern, opinion, or approach in the first place.

There are plenty of companies out there that do a great job of building that kind of environment. Some of them do it without even realizing that that’s what they’re doing! However, so many more companies aren’t as familiar as they can be with this concept.

I have led various workshops on this exact subject over the last few months, and the response I’ve gotten has been overwhelmingly positive. I have been able to assess the level of psychological safety of an organization, coached and trained leaders (and their teams) how to cultivate it within your working environment regardless if it’s in-person or hybrid/remote, and how to spot underlying toxic behaviors in a culture. All of these shape and sharpen a culture to be more dynamic, healthy and bulletproof.

And… this is just the tip of the iceberg, and there’s so much more to explore in this subject. I’m hopeful that this topic will continue to expand and be implemented throughout the workforce. We are just getting started with reaping its value.

Medicare Open Enrollment Period

Blog Series

What do I need to know about the Medicare Open Enrollment Period?  

Self love hug as esteem and confidence for being woman tiny pers

1. Medicare recipients can make changes to their coverage for the following year.  

2. If I’m already on Medicare, why would I want to change my coverage?  Because health and drug plans can and do make changes every year and you’ll want to know if things like cost, coverage and the doctors and pharmacies in your network have changed.

3. I thought Medicare benefits were the same for everybody.  If you have Original Medicare, your benefits are the same.  If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan, however, you may have additional benefits like dental and vision care, access to hearing aids, fitness club membership, free meals and transportation to and from your doctor.   And Medicare Supplements fill in “gaps” in Original Medicare and pick up things like copays, deductibles and extra hospital days.

4. This sounds confusing.  How do I know which option is best for me?  You can contact a private health insurance company directly, research plan options online or work with an agent.  Medicare can be complex, so you may choose to work with an agent who’s trained and certified to offer Medicare plans, who may represent several different companies and who can help you find the coverage that best meets your needs.

Social Security and Divorce

Social Security and Divorce

Self love hug as esteem and confidence for being woman tiny pers

The first thing to know about social security payments in retirement is that your divorce terms do not determine how much social security you’ll get FROM SOCIAL SECURITY e.g. the government program that is social security.

Here are the two general rules for social security:

  1. If you were married for 10 years and then divorce, you may “claim” on your former spouse’s work record.
  2. To claim, you cannot remarry unless you were over 60 when the remarriage took place.

If these rules are met, you are eligible for the greater of:

  • Half of your former spouses’ full retirement age (FRA) social security amount when you are at your FRA or
  • Whatever social security you are eligible for based on your own work record

Full retirement age (FRA) for those born after 1960 is 67. The FRA is two months earlier for each year before that, back until birthdays from 1943 – 1955 when it stops at age 66 (see the Social Security website). Divorcing spouses do not need to file or inform the Social Security Administration. There is no court order needed.

You must be at least 62 years of age to claim on your ex-spouse’s record, although there are exceptions (for example if you are disabled, or your ex-spouse is deceased). You can claim before your FRA although benefits are reduced by approximately 6.5% and 7.5% for each year taken earlier. If you were married more than once for 10 years each, you can choose only one ex’s work record.

Your ex-spouse’s social security payment stays the same. It is not impacted by a claim by a former. Social security will not notify your ex that you are claiming on his/her record and there is no need to communicate with your ex to accomplish any of this.

One more thing:

Your ex-spouse must be eligible to claim social security benefits but doesn’t have to be taking them. If your ex-spouse is not taking benefits but is eligible, your divorce must be two years prior to your claim – unless your ex-spouse was receiving benefits before the divorce.

For example:  Ann a stay-at-home mom divorces Joe a worker after 10 years of marriage. Ann gets half of Joe’s FRA social security amount ($1,500) at her full retirement age. If she takes it earlier, the amount is reduced. Joes gets all his ($3,000/month). If Joe dies, Ann gets the full amount Joe would have received ($3,000).

 

Here’s the not-so-good news:

 

  • To get an estimate based on ex’s work record you’ll have to call or visit your local social security office. You need you ex’s social security number, date of birth and parent’s names in addition to your marriage certificate and divorce decree.

 

  • If you were born in 1954 or after, you choose between your own benefit or 50% of the benefit based on your ex’s work record. Remember your benefit increases each year after your FRA, up until age 70. If you choose your ex’s benefit, you lose that opportunity. You’ll have to crunch numbers. If you were born before 1954, there is an option to file for your ex’s benefits and then switch to your own later.

 

  •  There are other Social Security Administration rules that may apply due to your or your ex-spouse’s unique circumstances (government pension offsets, something that is called the ‘windfall elimination provision’ and military benefits)

 

  • Everything I’ve just written is subject to change.

As you can see this is complicated. What you will receive is already determined by the Social Security Administration and is not negotiated in your divorce. A consultation at your local SSA office may be needed. And please remember, their answers can change by the time you are able to make a claim with changes in the law.

Appreciation – The Law of Increase

Appreciation – The Law of Increase

Self love hug as esteem and confidence for being woman tiny pers

Appreciation. What do you THINK about when you hear that word? Do you envision someone thanking you for a job well done or commenting on a fine work of art? Or are you thinking about an investment or piece of real estate that has grown in value? How do you FEEL when you or someone else is acknowledged and appreciated? Appreciation is certainly a wonderful, high-vibration feeling, thought, choice, and action!
In business, leadership, and life, learning how to effectively implement this energetically valuable natural law will advance your business in every way possible. Do you want healthier, more fulfilling relationships? Do you want more awesome customers? Do you want greater profits? Do you want lower rates employee turnover? Less burnout for yourself? Do you want your wealth and assets to grow consistently and exponentially? Are you using this natural law to your advantage to be of greater service to your customers, business, community, and family?

Do you know that what you “appreciate” appreciates in value in every way?

The natural Law of Increase (Praise) is the basis for how “appreciation” works. Since everything is energy, whatever, you “praise” or give gratitude for, INCREASES! Praise for a particular thing stimulates our mind, helps “magnetize” (attract) all the good around you and also helps transform that good into visible and usable form. If this is your first time hearing about this specific law, you may need to take time to really mull this over. However, you’ve seen this law in practice since you were a small child whether or not you knew what it was called.

Praise is a complement to our faith; Praise is the application of our faith. Faith is our belief in something or God. Therefore, how do we apply this Law of Increase (Praise) in practical ways in our daily lives and business

Here are six helpful tips for implementing the Law of Increase:

1. Gratitude and Appreciation

I know, you may have heard this a million times, but are you actually actively practicing gratitude? Not just a passing “I have a good life”, but rather a deeply felt belief, feeling, and thought around all that you have been blessed with. When you look around your home, when you was the last time you felt deep gratitude for it? The kind of deep gratitude that “moves your heart” kind of appreciation? Or do you focus on the imperfections? The paint color you hate, the creaky floorboards or leaky faucet? Do you grumble every time you pay the mortgage or rent? You shortchange your own increase or appreciation each time you do this! Right now, just stop and think about your home and your favorite thing about it. Perhaps you have a beautiful tree in your backyard or you love the way the sunlight floods in your east window every morning. Give gratitude and appreciation for all that GOOD!

Now, think about your business; give thanks for your loyal customers, the opportunities you have to serve them with your unique skills, to solve problems for them or add value to them. Give appreciation for their payment to you for your goods and services. Give gratitude for the future sales your business will receive as you continue to provide top notch service and products to the community. Gratitude and appreciation moves us into a higher state of vibration and helps us lower worry and stress. It’s much easier and enjoyable to serve your customers if you aren’t stressed!

In business, we want our balance sheet to show a gain or “appreciation” on our assets and accounts. Usually those are areas that we have given attention (praise) to and actively worked on. We get excited when we see the balance sheet increase! Why not do that with other areas of our lives?

2. Blessing

Do you engage in “blessing” your life, family, friends, business, employees, customers, and community?

If you have never tried this before, be prepared to be amazed at how this will change your life! Do you have a tough negotiation coming up? Or a difficult conversation with a customer? Instead of worrying about how badly it might go, engage your thinking to something along these lines “I am so happy and grateful now that this negotiation is productive, fruitful, and helpful to both parties involved. I know that we will work out good outcomes for us all. Bless our work, our conversations, our decisions, and the words we say.” You can customize it to whatever situation you are in.

If you’ve never done this before, you may be tempted to say “this is so PollyAnna; this won’t work in the real world. You’ve never met the people I work with!” This is where you have to remember that the Natural Laws ALWAYS work, whether you have heard of them or believe in them. It’s just like the Law of Gravity. It’s a given. Trust it!

It might take a bit of practice to develop your own technique with it. Whenever I get ready to meet with a client, I always think about some of the best qualities that person has or the potential I see in them. I bless those attributes and ask for them to have increase in their lives. I ask that I can give them the best of my skills and talents. Your customers KNOW energetically when you are working in their best interests! This does not mean violating any boundaries or giving away things for free, but truly being of service to them.

If you are a business owner, leader, or employee, do you bless your team of employees? Or do you just think of all the problems you have to deal with because of them? Do you honestly take time to praise them for the things they do well? A person who feels appreciated will be a much better employee! Of course, the praise must be sincere and appropriate. If you haven’t been in the habit on praising or thanking your team, you might be pleasantly surprised about how this helps change things for the better over time as you consistently engage in it. This does not mean excusing bad behavior, but you can always find something good in each person on your team.

Give gratitude for and bless your health, your family, your wealth! Whatever you praise will increase in your life!

3. Give Up Worrying and Complaining.

Seriously – STOP IT! If you increase your worry, your grumblings, complaints, and low vibration negative thoughts and feelings, you WILL get more of them as the Law of Praise(Increase) always increases whatever you praise. It works in reverse too, so it’s is doubly powerful that you stop complaining and worrying. If you find yourself with a negative thought, stop yourself and refresh it with a positive soundtrack that is life giving.

4. Change Your Thinking

Do you think in terms of increase or decrease? Do you see things through a lens of scarcity or abundance? Don’t be tempted to sugar coat it one way or the other. Just acknowledge to yourself where you really are in your thinking about all areas of your life. For example, I have some areas of my own business that I can easily think about all the good that is and will be happening. But, I also have a couple of segments where I still have deep doubts as to whether or not it will happen or if I’m up for a particular change or task. Those areas aren’t producing as well yet. I need to increase my praise, blessing, belief, and think more positively about. Nothing will change unless I do first! How empowering it is to know that we have the choice and ability to do this in our lives!

5. Self Appreciation

Do you actually value and appreciate yourself? Do you say it but don’t actually live it out? As entrepreneurs, we often work months without a day off. Why do we do that? Do you bless the skills and talents that you bring to the business? Do you work on your own personal growth? Do you take care of your health and relationships? Do you still have a quiet, but deeply subversive belief that you aren’t good enough? This belief will sabotage your efforts at self appreciation, so do the work you need to do to unpack what’s holding that belief in you so you can change it. If you don’t honor these things, there will not be any increase in these areas, which will eventually lead to burnout and the de-railment of your dreams, your health, and your business.

6. Praise the Ideal Future | State Your Desire

We all have dreams and goals that we want to have fulfilled, and the sooner the better right? I don’t know about you, but I want all my dreams to happen NOW! I DESIRE all the good, the fun, the fulfillment, and accomplishment of what I have been dreaming of, working on, and creating to be PRESENT now! Don’t you? One of the ways to get the higher energy moving around your goals, is to praise them in their ideal future state. For example, if your business desires to serve 100 clients in the first 6 months of the year, then give gratitude and blessing for that now! You can say something such as “I am so happy and grateful now that my business has served 100 customers well in the first six months of the year! It has been such a pleasure helping them and I am so grateful for great increase in money, times, and goals reached from that service.” Write your own from the state of the wish fulfilled. Do this daily, consistently until you see it come to fruition. Keep the faith, praise and bless it, and then take action. Remember, What you appreciate, Appreciates!

May Grace, Peace, and Abundance be upon your path!

The Law of Compensation

Self love hug as esteem and confidence for being woman tiny pers

What if you knew there are natural laws of money that actually have more determination on how you make money versus fiscal policy or whoever is in the office of the President?

There are many natural laws that already affect our lives that we are consciously aware of, such as the Law of Gravity and Law of Thermodynamics. However, most people simply haven’t been made aware that there are also natural laws of money that ALWAYS are at work, whether you know about them or even believe in them.

One of my favorite laws is the Law of Compensation. How many times have you heard someone complain about wanting to make more money? The majority of us would love to earn and have more money. As entrepreneurs, business owners, employees, and customers, we are all subject to the powerful effects of this law.

What exactly is the Law of Compensation and how does it work? This law has 3 basic premises:

1. The need for what you do
2. Your ability to do it
3. The difficulty in replacing you

As you consider these points, it will become clear to you why there are some people who earn more than other people. Let’s look at each point in greater detail.

1. The Need for What You Do:

First, let’s remember that your value as a person is NOT determined by WHAT you do, but rather WHO you are. Most jobs and businesses are created to solve a certain problem, to meet a need, or to offer a new solution to the market.

We all need the food that agriculture produces to meet our basic need for survival, but we don’t need a Hollywood movie in order to survive. Thankfully our society has moved beyond basic survival, and for many people, entertainment has moved into being a daily part of our lives. For some consumers, they would consider having movies to watch as something they “need”, while others would not. If you think about what your business offers to customers, do you provide a product or service that has a strong “need” value to most people? If you think about your current job, do people have a strong need for what you do and in a certain quantity?

2. Your Ability To Do It

If you work in a field that is fairly common, such as education, manufacturing, computers, sales, retail, etc., this part of the Law of Compensation is a very important way for you to distinguish yourself among your peers. If everyone is basically doing the same job, your proficiency, attitude, timeliness, creativity, and the value you personally add really works in your favor and you are generally rewarded for it.

3. The Difficulty in Replacing You:

Clearly, it is harder to replace a neurosurgeon than it is to replace a front-line fast food worker. This is one of the reasons why neurosurgeons will always make vastly more money than a fast food worker. It’s basic economics of supply and demand, which unfortunately, most people haven’t studied or understand.

As you look at your own business or career, how do you fit into these 3 points? If you are willing to take an honest look at where you are at, you will begin to grow in your awareness of how this Law of Compensation is always working. Then you can begin to make changes, such as altering what products or services you offer consumers, or distinguishing yourself more at work or finding a different career. Take some time this week to observe this Law at work all around you

It’s incredibly empowering to know about these natural laws of money so that we can begin to align ourselves with them and reap the consistent benefits they bring into our lives. If you’d like to hear more teaching on this Law of Compensation, check out episode #15 on our podcast, Brilliant Horizons, a Leadership Mastermind Podcast.

Also, if you’d like to learn more about the 11 natural laws that influence how money works, consider joining one of my courses or working with me in one on one coaching. I am here to help you grow in wealth and abundance through your awareness and implementation of these natural laws.

Blessings and abundance to you all!
