Middle of a Mormon Faith Crisis? Now what?

Mormon Faith Crisis ~ Now What?

You have found yourself in the middle of a Mormon Faith Crisis. A place that you never even knew could happen to you.

You are sitting there on your couch, or bed, or kitchen table, you are looking around your house that used to feel perfect and right (for the most part). You just finished a big cry and now you are just sitting there looking and not quite sure what the future holds. You feel empty and void of all the emotions that just spilled out of you.

The house you are still staring at, blankly, represents all that you knew. All that you wanted for you family. All that you planned for. And now, you know that life is not going to be the same again.

There are conversations that have to happen.

There are feelings that have to be felt.

There are relationships that may change.

There are stories that now have different endings.

What are you going to do?

{{{Breathe.}}

Know that you will make it through.

You will stand on solid footing again, even if it may look completely different than it does in this moment.

How do I know this? Because I have been there. I have stared with new eyes, at everything I had created for my life and felt empty and scared.

Have things changed? 

Yes. 

Life is different than it used to be.

I really do believe that the experience of a Faith Crisis is wonderful and perfect, in all of it's imperfections.

Cry it out when you need to. Suck it up when you have to.

Get through it.

You will experience a wide variety of emotions.

Remember that emotions are just feelings and feelings will not kill you.

Let the feelings come and go, ebb and flow.

And then, when you are ready to no longer be in limbo. When you are ready to look at life as it falls around you. When you are ready to step into your new way of being, but you need a little help, a little nudge. Message me.

You will get through this and I am here to help.

You are just becoming who you were meant to be. It is perfectly unfolding.

Let it be messy for a time. It is all part of the rebuilding.

You are loved.

Faith Crisis Life Coach ~ Ways to Work With Me ~ Ex Mormon
Okay my dear, I know you feel like your whole world just came crashing down on you. It feels heavy, scary, lonely.

I get it. 

I have been there, right where you are. Going through a Faith Crisis is one of the most confusing, painful experiences you have ever been through.

Feeling like you are the crazy one. Feeling like everyone is looking at you like you have lost your mind. Feeling scared to speak your mind. Feeling like you should just keep quiet to keep the peace.

You probably feel like you should hold it all in and just go through the motions of life, like it was before. Just pretend.

I did that for a long time too.

But you are probably tired of living that way. Tired of holding your tongue. Feeling like the new you is getting lost in the shuffle?

I am here to guide you through this process. 

I KNOW IT IS SCARY.

You are no longer the person you were. So how do you show up in the world now?

You can live in fear of the new you, or you can go find her! 

I have a HUGE tool box, filled with all sorts of ways to help you, right now, in this scary place you have found yourself.


My dear, you will be okay. You will survive this. I promise.

Please do not let yourself get lost in this shuffle. You are needed. Your new voice is needed in the lives of your children, your spouse, your friends.

It is time to become the new you. It is totally okay to emerge as a new person.

Because, if you have been walking this awakening of yours for any amount of time, you know you cannot go back to the old way of being.

I have seen beautiful changes happen in the lives of my clients. I am always so honored to be a part of the process. I know it takes courage to let someone in. 
I would love to work with you. I am waiting. Just reach out.

You are loved,

Amy
Amy Logan ~ Getting Uncomfortable ~ Faith Crisis Life Coach

Don't you hate feeling uncomfortable? Ugg, so do I!

This weeks video blog, vlog, is all about this very topic.

I want you to realize something, when you have a 

  • Goal
  • Desire
  • Dream
  • Exit plan
  • Education plan
  • etc.

part of attaining said dream/plan, will most likely involve feelings you do not want to feel, you will find all the ways and reasons why you should not achieve it.

It is just what our brain does. We are wired that way.

But listen, all that you want in life, is on the other side of feeling uncomfortable.

The secret lies, in feeling uncomfortable, and doing "it" anyway.

That is it. 

Super simple, right? No, but the good news is, you are also wired to do hard things.

And the funny part is, the feeling you are putting off, is most likely the feeling you are feeling ANYWAY!!!

So, get busy. You got this!

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.

The Life Show Ep. 36 ~ What do you need to get back to?

I have some catching up to do and so The Life Show episodes will be out of order for a sec.  #lifehappens

Get caught up with me! Life has been a roller coaster the past 4-5 months. You can hear all about it here...

Lots of love to you!

Amy xo

Epiphanies! I love them! Do you?

Oh my goodness! I thought it was me. It is not me. It is FB. lol

No, seriously, I thought my business was over. Sales have been down. I got scared.

I also thought I had to do business a certain way. Maybe I do. Maybe I don't. But I am tired of the game of trying to figure it all out.

So, from this day going forward, I am going to do what feels intrinsically right for me.

I create because I have to create. Not because I have to sell. If you love my Soul Candy pieces...great! If you want to join me on an essential oil journey...great! If you want to have me as your life coach...great!

Either way, I will be here doing what I love, because I have to. I want to. It is me.

Have a listen to this impromptu FB LIVE video, from today. I share from a very genuine and honest place. Plus I talk about Elizabeth Gilbert, so there is that.

Things have been changing over on FB, as they always have and always will. But I will still be doing my thing and I hope you find ways to follow along.

Please sign up for my weekly bursts of love! That way we can always stay in touch. Even if you don't open all my emails! that is okay!!! Pick and choose what works for you. I am okay with it all. 

After watching this video, tell me what spoke to you. I really do want to hear your thoughts.

Are you tired of trying to do things perfectly, or just right? Stop that. Be you in all of your glorious imperfectness. Keep doing what you love, just because you love it, without worrying about what other people think.

We are all in this together.

Much love and cheers to living life on your terms.

The Life Show Ep. 30 ~ Tomorrow

Life is precious. We all do not know how long we have on this planet. Really, one day at a time.

This episode aired just after the shootings in Las Vegas. 

It was hard to hop on live and talk about life as usual when for so many people life would never be the same again.

These are my thoughts from that day.

My love and healing heart to all of those effected by such a terrible terrible happening.

You are loved.

~Amy
