I believe that:
- None of us are flawed.
- The mind is our greatest asset.
- Our thoughts create our reality.
- Action is a critical, yet often overlooked, part of the manifestation equation.
None of us are flawed. We are inherently complete. Each of us is a deep storehouse of wisdom. I help my clients access their internal wisdom by dissolving the limiting beliefs that block them from their inner knowing.
The mind (consciousness) is our greatest asset. I help my clients overcome the external and internal programming that holds them back from realizing their full potential. This allows them to become masterful creators of their own lives.
Our thoughts create our reality.
This is both good and bad news. It’s a positive to know that we ultimately have control over what we manifest. The downside is that without conscious attention, we often default to fear-based thinking which springs from our subconscious. To challenge our unconscious thoughts and beliefs, power tools are needed. I’ve got some game changers at my disposal and I’m on a constant quest to discover and develop more.
Action is critical.
Once our thoughts and feelings are aligned with our intentions, the next critical step is to take inspired action to make those intentions manifest.
I treat my clients like they are divine greatness which helps them discover that quality in themselves. My approach dissipates the adopted beliefs (both cultural and personal) that hide my clients’ full divinity and power. Creating from this space helps my clients to become congruent with their intentions, aligning thought feeling, and action.
I’m Kira, a compassionate knowledge maven who applies a unique blend of metaphysics and cold hard reality to help clients consciously create the reality they want in their life and work. I’m all about consciousness—how we can evolve it and how we can leverage it to bring about the results we seek. My superpower is listening and responding with insight and creativity. I provide clients a customized blend of structure and spontaneity in a safe environment to support them through change.
When it comes to left brain/right brain balance, I’m right down the middle with a healthy dose of both.
I cultivated my left brain through fifteen years in corporate leadership where I led departments in areas like project management, reengineering and cost reduction, professional development, and customer experience.
I can roll around in hard facts, analysis, and concrete action taking with the best of them. I have a BA in Psychology (Cognitive Psychology and Behaviorism) from Carleton College and an MBA from Duke University.
As a coach, I use my left brain orientation to seek clarity on clients’ intentions, identify specific action steps, hold clients accountable, and create structure and order throughout the coaching process.
I’ve nurtured my right brain through more esoteric pursuits, studying consciousness and meaning making in my PhD program and being deeply steeped in the archetypes and Jungian psychology (I’m a certified Archetypal Pattern analyst and soon to complete Caroline Myss’ Sacred Contracts certificate). I’ve explored non-dualism with teachers like Byron Katie (including Katie’s Nine-day School for the Work) and Abraham.
Other teachers who have inspired my coaching approach include Don Miguel Ruiz, Robert Kegan, Joe Dispenza, and Deepak Chopra. I focus on translating these teachings into concrete actions that my clients can directly apply in their lives. Drawing from several modalities, I craft a customized approach for supporting each client on their unique journey.
I love to bring my left brain/right brain orientation to bear on topics like belief, understanding the hard science behind how our brains work to translate thoughts into reality.
I’m passionate about this stuff because I’ve seen the way it works in my life. I’ve experienced the disappointing results that come when disempowering beliefs and cultural programming are in control. For years, I fell into an unconscious workaholism, shutting down my feelings and living a dangerously unbalanced life.
And I’ve experienced the mind-blowing results and feeling of liberation that comes from consciously shaping my beliefs and thoughts. This has enabled a number of accomplishments, including: stepping away from a six-figure salary to pursue opportunities that were more congruent with my soul; moving cross-country; and landing amazing jobs and homes. This is a journey where the destinations keep getting more exciting, the understanding of self keeps deepening and the expression of self keeps getting more authentic and soulful.
