Faith Crisis Life Coach ~ Amy Logan ~ Thoughts on the Loose

One of the most important secrets to life is learning how to manage your mind, your thoughts.

We tend to think whatever thoughts run through our brains are facts. And then we get used to thinking a certain way and we get stuck in our own heads.

Guess what?!

That is not true. Your thoughts are not facts.You can actually learn to manage your mind and greatly reduce all the side effects of worry, anxiety, overwhelm, etc

It takes practice. 

When you find yourself faced with a faith crisis, you can use this tool to help you through the difficult process of making such a huge life change.

Get those thoughts managed and you are on the right path.

Have a listen and tell me what you think. If nothing else it will get you thinking.

(see what I did there?) ;) Video Below!

Faith Crisis Life Coach and my Soul Searching Girl Journey (my exmormon story)

Awww, the journey of a Faith Crisis is an interesting one, isn't it?

I started my YouTube channel in 2012. It was a place to share my story and document some of my feelings and memories along the way.

It has been a place to help those of you who are coming up the ranks behind me. 

I felt so alone and scared, back in 2006, when my Faith Crisis (awakening) began, that I wanted to have a space for you to come and see a real face attached to the journey. 

Maybe you can see yourself in some of the stories I tell?

We are a lot a like, you and me. We are pioneers in a way. 

Leaving one's faith takes time and courage.

I am hear to listen, walk with you, and guide you through the process.

I just added these words to the home page of my site...

I am Amy and I am a Faith Crisis Life Coach. I lived through my own personal faith crisis and I am living proof that there is life on the other side. I know you feel alone and scared, but it will not last forever. Let your awakening (what I like to call it now) be the most beautiful thing you have ever been through. Sound impossible? Oh my dear, it is possible.

I really do believe that this process you find yourself in the middle of is actually beautiful. (albeit so damn hard)

You will look back one day and realize that what you are going through is actually a good thing. It is the beginning of you looking outside the box. It is the beginning of you thinking for yourself.

No matter what side of the coin you land on, you may stay, you may go, but you will have a completely different perspective. You can never look at religion the same way again, and that ultimately is a good thing.

It hurts right now, but it does get better.

Stick around. Things are really getting good here.

You are not alone,

What are you focused on? ~ Faith Crisis Life Coach

 

 

Okay my dear....

What do you have your eyes on? Seriously, what are you looking at?

Remember the last time you had a crush on someone, graduated from HS or college, landed your first job, gave birth to your baby, planned a fun vacation? Pick something. Something in your life when you felt all those fun feelings.

Did you know you can capture those thoughts and feelings everyday?

It always comes down to what you are thinking about.

Have you ever seen someone who walks around like they hold the secret to the universe? I have and I have even felt what that feels like too. (A story for another day.) That feeling can be fleeting, but it is possible to capture the flow of those thoughts and live your life from them.

When I start to doubt the feeling that I hold the secret of the universe in my hands, I sit back and go to the place, in my mind that gave me those thoughts and feelings. Then I hold on tight and work and life from that place.

It feels so much better to live life through that lens then the opposite lens that makes me feel sad and depressed.

You can do this too. Really, you can.

What lights you up? Follow that. Do it now. Life is way too shore to sit around waiting for someday.

You, my dear, are worth it.

Emerge ~ Faith Crisis Survivor

Dear Ones, 

I posted this on my social media sites yesterday and I have been blow away by the sweet messages and words of encouragement. A few of you have messaged me privately about your own journey and or doubts. 

I want you to know that you are not alone....

Because it is hard and you may need to reach out privately. This is for you.....

I have been distracted. I have looked away from something that has been calling to me for years. It is time to listen to my intuition, to emerge, so to speak.

Several years ago, 10 to be exact, I experienced a deep, painful, life changing faith crisis. I was raised Mormon and lived a great life as a Mormon. I was on the perfect path. I checked all the Mormon life journey boxes and I was well on my way to the celestial kingdom.

But around 2002/3 I had a nagging, something inside me started to question everything I had been taught. I started to get scared. I pushed those feelings down for years until about 2006. One day, I gave myself permission to follow my intuition and explore my doubts. I started studying. I read and read and cried and cried as I learned what I had been taught all my life was not quite what I thought it was. I remember wanting to die. I wanted the earth to swallow me up. I started to see that my life was going to change drastically.

How could I go on when EVERYONE around me was a member of the church, my husband, mom, siblings, all my friends. I felt alone and I was in huge despair.

For a few years I kept most of my new discoveries inside & quiet. When I tried to talk about my feelings and questions and new discoveries I was given answers like...pray harder, read your scriptures, have more faith it will all work itself out in the next life. I was told I was being deceived by satan. 

I prayed harder. I pleaded with god to let me go back to my old ways of thinking, it would be easier. I couldn't do that. I was having an awakening and there was no going back.

I have lived through it. And now I am here to help others navigate those scary painful days, no matter the faith or religion. You will survive this pain. You will emerge stronger for walking this path of uncertainty.

My Soul Candy stones came from a place of my own personal healing. They are precious to me. I will still be creating my stones and selling them, just no more "sales." (or very few) Just know they come from a deep place of healing. I hope they serve you as healing reminders. You know where to find them and me. Time to emerge and help others navigate this scary path. 

I feel so much clarity about my mission in life, at this time. It is my desire to gather those of us who have felt this pain and share our stories and share our life after a faith crisis triumph. 

You are loved and you are not alone,

Amy xo

Stand Up, Rise and Shine Your Light! We need YOU.

Today, over on Facebook, I share a few of my thoughts about our current estate of affairs.

I believe we well get through this time of uncertainty. Take a deep breath, feel all the feels you need to and then go and do, and give, and serve, and shine YOUR light. We are here to continue to evolve and grow and we are all at different points along life's journey. I do not know the reason for such hard times, but I do believe we are here to learn how to be better people...

How are you doing? How are you feeling? Share with me, if you will.

Sending love and healing light, your way...

Amy xoxo
