This episode with Gary Waters, High Performance Mindset Coach, is all about getting to the root cause of what’s limiting your ability to experience true freedom, joy, love and vitality.

He shares insights into a completely different way of thinking, leading to a life changing shift in perspective. I really appreciated Gary’s ability to give tangible action steps to the listener – you and me. You’ll love this episode.

Here’s a lot of what we talked about …

  • Mindset plays a significant role in shaping our experiences and outcomes in life.
  • Our subconscious mind is influenced by our environment and language, particularly during childhood.
  • Identifying and challenging limiting beliefs is crucial for personal growth and transformation.
  • Affirmations alone are not enough to shift deeply ingrained beliefs; addressing the root cause is necessary. Changing perspectives can lead to a new way of seeing oneself and the world, which can lead to behavioral changes and different results.
  • Rock bottom can be a catalyst for change and a turning point in one’s life.
  • Triggers are opportunities for self-awareness and growth, and they often stem from resistance to certain aspects of life.
  • Desire can come from a place of lack or dissatisfaction, but shifting to a mindset of abundance and wholeness can change the energy behind desire.
  • Allowing and surrendering can lead to a sense of freedom and ease in life.
  • The journey of transformation takes time and commitment, and it often involves ongoing practice and self-discovery.
  • Morning practices can set the tone for the day and help establish a positive mindset and frequency.
  • Gary Waters can be found at garywaters.co.uk and on Instagram as @iamgarywaters.
  • Working with Gary Waters involves a discovery call to determine if there is a fit and to discuss the duration and details of the coaching relationship.
  • Appreciation and gratitude for the time and presence of others can create a meaningful connection and exchange.

I have recently opened up some opportunities for women to work 1:1 with me in personal leadership coaching. This year my group programs are on pause … I can feel a deep level of 1:1 work that’s emerging for me and I’m creating as much space as possible for what’s coming through.

I have two upcoming group retreats:  

April 6-13, 2024 Mexico, RECLAIM RETREAT

Nestled between the lush jungle and emerald ocean is Xinalani, a sanctuary of wellness and serenity just outside of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

This retreat is an incredible 7-day eco-luxe immersion with daily yoga, meditation, breath work, mindfulness and self discovery led by Shirlee and Laura.

We have a select numbers of spots remaining. Details HERE

 July 19-23, 2024 Ontario, Canada, THE GATHERING

Renew, Rewild, Recalibrate: A very intentional 5-day retreat for women who are desiring a reset … a return to the truest essence of who they are to tap back into clarity, inner connection and purpose. This retreat is an annual sold-out retreat and we are thrilled to invite you in.


I also curate 1:1 personal, 4-5 day deep-dive retreats that are intimate and powerful – here in Costa Rica. One opportunity May 2024. One opportunity June 2024 and October 2024. Contact me for more info on this and future opportunities. 

Coach with me and step into yourself, fully and completely.

I lead Elemental Rhythm Breathwork in person (Costa Rica) and online.

You can book a free discovery call right here. You can also reach out to me through direct message on INSTAGRAM and we can take the next step.
