BIG Shifts Chat: Sheila Finkelstein

bse-sheilafinkelstein-focusSheila Finkelstein has dealt with a number of BIG Shifts in her life, but the most challenging was her husband Sam's Parkinsons and the subsequent loss when he passed. Here are some highlights from our chat:

  • Anger can be a spur to act creatively and discover new answers.
  • Believe in yourself and your own resilience.
  • Check in to see if it's about you being right or taking the right action.
  • During the depths of despair a camera can be your way out. It can create an immediate shift.
  • Your tools can create a clearing, clarity and peace.
  • Words give freedom and release.
  • Focusing your attention on a creative exploration shifts the ‘woe is me’ mode.
  • The simple act of noticing, getting out of your own head, creates a shift.
  • Be open to receiving.
  • Accept who you are.
  • Pay attention to your own feelings.
  • The way out is through writing.
  • Look at what’s really going on.
  • Find a friend to reflect your greatness.
  • Look for your own greatness in others.
  • When you’re feeling really great, write it down for yourself.
  • Your tools help you excavate what’s really going on.

Daily Shift: Write! Write! Write!


Writing is a powerful tool to manage and learn from negative experiences. It also strengthens your immune system and your mind. Study after study reveals the indisputable benefits of writing …

  • stress reduction
  • personal growth
  • healing
  • problem solving
  • self understanding
  • enhanced creativity and intuition

Writing, whether done via journaling or in a writing circle format, is an indispensible tool for BIG Shifts. You can use the power of writing to help catapult your self discovery during our time together.

Get yourself a journal and take at least 5 minutes a day to jot down your thoughts. You can pick morning or evening and the format can vary. You can do a brain dump one day, a gratitude list another day, or a session in free flow creative writing. Commit to putting pen to paper and notice the insights that arise. Try it out. Just write.
