A Weird Reason You Should Let People Down (How to Say No Without Feeling Guilty)

Do you ever sell yourself out because of fear of losing love?

It's ok. You can say it.

I mean, I know I sure have.

Don't even get me STARTED on all the ways I have sold myself out, overextended and let MYSELF down, out of fear of letting others down. 

I mean, if there was Red Seal of People Pleasers, I would have the certification stamped n' signed. 

And honestly? It took me by surprise to even consider I was a people pleaser. 

"Me? No. Nuh-uh. HELL no. I am WAY too edgy & outspoken for that shit. I have a neck tattoo, for goodness sakes. People pleasers do NOT have neck tattoos...". 

"The lie detector determined... THAT was a lie" - Maury, my man, truer words have never been spoken. 

Anyways, as a professional (now retired) people pleaser who was terrified of letting people down, I have learned a thing or two I wanna share with you. 

As always, I gotta story to share. 

THIS is the SITuation on people pleasing, and a weird reason why you...

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #30 - From Scarcity to Generosity (accidentally featuring Kim Hiebert)

We’ve got a lil’ solo session with Kelsey today, where she dives into the story about how her camera got stolen by a crackhead. Crazy, right? But what else is new with this crazy renegade? 

Kelsey dives into how this specific moment in her life (that happened 10 years ago) has affected her current relationships with people--making her keep them at arm’s length and even doubting whether they want HER or just want SOMETHING from her.  

And, ironically, a certain someone phoned Kelsey right when she was about to dive into the meat of this episode...This special unexpected guest is actually someone who was affected by the trauma Kelsey’s been carrying. Talk about impeccable timing!? 

Do you think that was a coincidence or was the universe trying to communicate something? 

Either way, this episode is surely something worth listening to. From betrayals and overgiving to trust and genuine generosity in relationships; get to know...

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #28 - Healing Beyond the S#&% Storm

Kelsey and Vincent chat with Ashley Valliere (creator of ReKnowing) about relationships, healing deep emotional wounds, working out, and grocery lists. Peppered with belly laughs, useful metaphors for your healing journey, and other insights, this episode will inspire you to keep moving through the s#&% storm.

So. The s#&% storm. What is it? 

It can feel like full body vibrations, shaking, big emotions, and uncomfortable sensations. It's over analyzing, feeling small, and unworthy.  

Do you give yourself s#&% when you’re in the s#&% storm? Are your expectations about healing, your “coulda, shoulda, wouldas” in your way? 

How are you part of your own problem? (Yup. Accountability can suck, but sitting it can help you discover how you are participating in your suffering or trauma continuing?) 

Pain tempts us to numb out, ignore, or shut down, BUT you gotta feel it to heal it. 

It takes serious effort, diligence,...

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #26 - Summer Solstice Fireside Chats (Vulnerable Shares)

Real talk about transformation is exactly what this episode is all about.

Enjoy the crackle of the fire alongside Kelsey Eigler and Vincent VanOhm as they dive into how 2021 is going so far.

They discuss social media detoxing, and how removing FB and IG from their phones has created more presence, creativity, joy and happiness.

They speak candidly (and admittedly ambiguously) about having Cancer in the business.

They reflect on how problems are resistance bands for the soul, and some of the personal demons they’ve had to overcome…

You’ll feel like you’re sitting around the fire with 2 pals, and likely be provoked to have some beautiful reflections of your own.

Questions to consider:

  • What was your intention for 2021 and how’s that going?
  • What is your intention/what are you calling in for the second half of 2021?

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #25 - Raising a Rebellious Teen with Mama Kae Eigler (From the Mum of a Renegade)

This episode is a special one, featuring the Mum and Mama in-law of your favourite Renegades.

V cracks Mama Kae Eigler (AKA: Mama K or Mama Bear) wide open in this heart wrenching and inspiring conversation about a single mothers perspective raising a rebellious (at times, out of control) teen. 

Mama K shares all the deets from watching her child’s first moment learning gratitude and appreciation, to watching Kelsey be arrested for the first time, resulting in expulsion from every Edmonton Public School, to Kelsey's drug-induced hospitalization, allllll the way to becoming an inspirational leader. 

Mama K speaks of how she, herself, was a renegade parent, raising her kids against popular norms by allowing them to have their own journey without judgement and control.

By seeking alternative channels and spiritual based practices, she found safety in knowing that even the expulsion from school, the drug dealing, and the drug overdose wouldn’t stop her...

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #24 - The New Paradigm of Activism with Anna Tsui

 

Genius coach, international writer, speaker, activist, serial entrepreneur, and founder of The Intuitive Business School, Anna Tsui sits down with Kelsey to discuss grace, anger, social justice, racialized violence against the Asian community, and honouring traditional healing modalities.

Kelsey and Anna’s discussion flows with deep wisdom and moves through heart centred intentions, unexpected connections, willingness to express love, the new paradigm of activism, fear, inner censorship, people pleasing paralysis, and stepping into our power and being ourselves.  

It’s a deep dive and a badass conversation.  

Anna also offers some insight on this powerful question (a question that our healing community might want to lean into and get more curious about): 

How do we, as healers, actually and tangibly, honour the traditional roots of our healing modalities and medicines so that we can carry it forward? 

Things are complex and tense out...

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #23 - Following the Energy with Dr. Carson

 
Dr. Carson, energy focused, chiropractor extraordinaire, is changing Kelsey and Vanessa’s lives. 

In this episode they follow the energy of Dr. Carson’s career trajectory and how he savagely followed his inner renegade and his heart into alignment - and how he helps others get into alignment too. 

Dr. Carson was a student of philosophy, hypnosis, and tai chi - and when he was introduced to chiropractics by a friend, it changed his life overnight. When he began his studies, chiropractics wasn’t yet widely accepted, but his awareness guided him to the path anyway, and his career evolved, alongside chiropractics and energy focused healing modalities.

When we are not in alignment our bodies will tell us. We can get stuck in loops of stress, self protection, and not quite able to let it go-ness... and so then we develop things like spinal tension patterns as an indicator of how we’re processing information in our nervous system. 

Dr. Carson...

From the Heart of a Renegade - Episode #22 - What the SH#%&?! (Creating sustainable success beyond “shoulds”)

 

In Episode #22, Kelsey and Vanessa ponder what it means to choose joy and live fulfilling, meaningful lives or doing what they should.

We’ve all been told what we SHOULD be doing, heard who we should be, and told all the things we should choose and what success should look like.

When you live in SHOULD it impacts your health and your life. When you are trying to fit into the vision of who you should be instead of being who you truly are, it could burn you out, dull your light, and even become soul crushing.

Performing the should isn’t sustainable.

What if we asked ourselves what we actually want and then choose it? What if we chose our joy over a should?

Have you stopped to consider what it might be like if you stripped off all the SHOULDS?

Kelsey and Vanessa reminisce on what the global pandemic and the last year has taught them about their definition of success and shedding their shoulds. They dive into some of the personal growth and change they experienced....
