Hello everybody. I want to talk to you today about the winds of change.
The winds of change could be like a gentle breeze that ruffles the leaves on the sidewalk, or it could be like a hurricane! Some of you have experienced both! Sometimes it happens like you think it's just a little breeze and suddenly it's a hurricane because change often coalesces. Some of you notice that sometimes things will happen, like you'll have three different things happen, like have a problem at work and then your car breaks down and then you have a financial problem all at the same time. And that is even more difficult with change!
Well, my name is Linda Frazee and I've been teaching people how to manage change effectively for the last 40 years. It's a big thing and it hasn't gone away. It will never go away! Our ability to learn how to manage change effectively, especially emotionally with ourselves, is really essential.
In addition to teaching people how to manage change, I have been teaching the...
Hello everybody. My name is Linda Frazee and today I want to talk to you about taking good care of yourself from the Enneagram perspective.
There are nine 'types' on the Enneagram, and each one has strengths and weaknesses when it comes to taking care of oneself. In my 40 years of working with people, I've been teaching people for those 40 years to take care of themselves:, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. And in those 40 years, I've had some years where I did all four of those briefly, but most of the time, I was focused on one more than another. Now because I'm a four on the Enneagram, which is a big feeling type, my feelings could get in the way. So I've had to work on that myself and I've helped many of others as well. So I want to tell you a little bit about it.
1. First of all, the first type is the 'one' and they're called sometimes the perfectionist or the reformer. They're very good about following orders. When they start a plan, they're right on...
Hi, this is Linda Frazee and I want to talk to you a little more today about setting and achieving goals. That's something that we're always in the process of doing. And I have some suggestions.
You know, it's interesting that when people set goals - so often we don't really get what we want! We don't really achieve what we want. I believe there's three reasons.
The first reason is we really weren't very serious when we set the goal. It sounded good, we really did want to lose the weight, we really did want to go to the gym. We really did want a new relationship. We did want to start finding a spiritual practice or whatever. However we forgot to add in the element of sacrifice and change! If you're going to achieve something new, you have to change what you're doing.
You have to add a practice, you have to add some time, you have to shift things around. Somehow, everybody is looking for that magic pill to lose weight or someone to just immediately come to the house and help us stay...
Hi everybody, this is Linda Frazee. I want to talk to you today about reaching your goals and some of the things that get in your way.
You know, our motivation is really important when we start something new, and the Enneagram is a personality system I teach that helps you get down to that deeper motivation. It's interesting because there's nine different types of personalities on the Enneagram and those nine types are in three different 'centers'.
The first center is the heart types, which is the emotional feeling types. And then we have the mental types, which are the thoughtful ones that are sometimes called the thinking types. And then we have the kinesthetic or body types. So there are three different centers of the Enneagram.
When it comes to reaching your goals, there are challenges and there are strengths for each one of those types, and I want to give you an illustration - one of each of those types in each center.
So let's start out with the 'ones'. If you're a 'one'...
This week, we begin a fascinating three part series about flow and synchronicity with author and physicist, Sky Nelson Isaacs.
Have you ever wondered if there was more to the story of being in the "right" time and "right" place?
We explore this, and so much more, with Sky Nelson-Isaacs on this initial interview.
Members of the Authentic Wisdom Community are rewarded with three additional conversations with Sky and I, where we dive deeper into the specific enneagram types and the concept of synchronicity.
Inside Authentic Wisdom, you'll find these three additional interviews:
-Flow & Synchronicity with the Head-based types
-Flow & Synchronicity with the Heart-based types
-Flow & Synchronicity with the Instinct-based types
You can join Authentic Wisdom HERE.
Sky wrote the book: "Living in Flow: The Science of Synchronicity and How Your Choices Shape Your World", which can be purchased from Amazon HERE.
You can check out Sky's course HERE.
Have you ever thought for a moment that you are really the CEO of your own company? The part of you that's choosing your whole entire life? And that inside yourself you have a 'board of directors.' You may not have consciously chosen them, but they're there now!
So why is there an internal board of directors inside you? Well, that's because those are the people who are closest to you. When you were born, probably your parents, your relatives, your neighbors, your friends, the influencers in your life when you were small - whether they were kind or not, whether they liked you, whether you like them, whether they bullied you, or whether they were the big cheerleaders in your life... that's who's inside you for your internal board of directors! Those early influencers are still there!
They haven't gone away and they've been giving their opinion and voting on your decisions and criticizing your choices all these many...
Hi, I'm Linda Frazee, and I want to talk to you today about a more positive perspective for the holidays.
This is such an intense time for people getting ready with all that the season demands and everything that goes along. It can really be hard to keep your balance in this busy, busy time!
Sometimes people just get exhausted or they get tired, or they just say, 'what? This isn't even worth it!' And by the time they get through the holidays they don't even enjoy it. They don't even remember it.
In my work with people I've discovered there's three major categories of attitudes.
*** Full Transcription Below ***
Number one is make it go away. 'I don't even want to participate.' 'Everything about the holidays at this time of year drives me crazy.' 'I don't like anything.' 'Just let me know when it's over.'
The second attitude is, 'okay, I'm going through the emotions, and I'm counting the days until it's over.' 'It always costs more than what I think.' I spent too much money, I...
Hi, my name is Linda Frazee, and I am so excited to tell you about the birth of my online community.
It's called Authentic Wisdom.
I've been working on this project for nine months, putting it together and finally today it's being born.
This is an online community for people who are interested in the Enneagram and who like to know more about it. It's also for those who would be interested in intuition and synchronicity, and also just being more healthy in their own wellness.
Those three subjects are my primary focus in teaching within this community. It will have panels of people for you to find your type, and to learn about the Enneagram and use it in every walk of life. From your work to your home, to your relationships with your kids or your grandchildren, the romantic partner that you wish to have, or even your best friend with synchronicity.
I'm helping people with the aid of guest speakers who are experts in this subject. Helping you to be in the right place at...

If you've ever driven a car, you know what a blind spot is. That blind spot is when you can't see either with your rear view mirror or your side mirror what's behind you. That inability to see can cause an accident because in that just short period of time, someone could be behind you and sideswipe you, or any number of things can happen. So we have to be very careful as drivers.
Now, just in case you've never driven a car, it's important for you to understand that just one second can cause a problem. So that's how it is in driving. But the interesting thing is in our personalities, we can also have blind spots!
I'm Linda Frazee, and I teach a system called the Enneagram. It has nine 'types' and it teaches you very carefully about your blind spots if you choose to listen and become aware of them.
We can't change anything that we're not aware of. And so becoming aware of our blind spots is very important.
Now let's back up a little. There are positive...
Freedom from financial stress. Perhaps freedom from pain - from physical or emotional stress or discomfort if that is in play. And perhaps, there may be a desire for freedom from a relationship.
It's interesting, especially in the United States, people seem to think that everything is greener on the other side of the fence!
'If I just had more money, everything would be okay.'
'If I won the lottery, that would do it right there.'
We have this imagination of things getting better: if I got married, if I had a baby, if I got divorced. Whatever it is, we have a tendency to think that freedom comes from outside of ourselves.
But the truth is you can never feel free with anything outside of you. Even extensive wealth - if you're not free and trusting inside.
There's a very dynamic relationship between freedom and trust, and I want to talk to you about that today.
