Acknowledging Childhood Trauma is Part of Your Healing Journey

Having hot sauce shoved down his throat. Having his little head slammed into cabinet doors. Being told she’d be left out on the streets, alone. Being punished without explanation. Spanked with a metal spatula. Hearing she is fat and ugly at the age of 6. How would you feel if you watched that happen to […]

Replacing “I Have To” and “I Need To” With “I GET To”

One of my favorite language habit changes I made in the past couple years is tossing “I have to” and “I need to” and replacing them with “I GET to”. I sat here this morning thinking of… the clients I’ll be supporting with this week the team member I’ll be speaking with tomorrow the conversations […]

Reminders of Past Successes Don’t Provide Permanent Change

Recently I saw a business coach post on his Facebook wall: “If you’re struggling this week and feeling like you’re not good enough, just pull out your case studies and look at people you’ve helped, and you can’t help but feel better about yourself! You got this!!”. I know he meant well. And remembering past […]

How To (Once and For All) Quiet the Mean Thoughts In Your Mind

We aren’t in control of our thoughts. Period. Even so, we CAN impact the quality and type of thoughts that bubble up into our minds. I used to have horrible, mean, intrusive thoughts flow through my mind every day. And now…they just aren’t there. At all. Very few people manage to figure out how to […]

Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone

Recently I did something I’ve never done before. I hiked. For nearly 12 hours. If you know me, you know I DON’T hike. ~10+ ankle surgeries and a walking pace slower than a snail’s usually deter me. Yesterday though, I was invited to step outside my comfort zone, do ‘business outside’ with some unbelievably incredible […]

What invisible rules are quietly running YOU?

There’s an amazing fellow who’s made over $10 million dollars online with a team of only 6 people, all while working just 3 days/week. I listened to him being interviewed on a podcast recently. At one point the interviewer interjects, incredulously, with something like… “But wait, don’t you feel GUILTY for making so much money […]

MindFix Founder Erin Pheil Interviewed by Alan Masters

In late 2019, Erin was flown to Oregon to be interviewed in Part 2 of a 2-hour episode by Alan Masters at the Foundation for Human Understanding — a faith based organization interested in reducing human suffering and improving the human condition. During the interview, Erin tells the story of her chronic pain years and […]


Had a bit of a “HOLY COW THIS IS MY LIFE” moment recently while drinking my tea. I sat here in my kitchen, reflecting on the sheer amount of AMAZINGNESS I’ve attracted — a phoenix-level rebirth of flow and possibility after the explosions, chaos, and devastation that categorized my 2020… I reflected upon how… ⭐ […]

I’m crying. No need to feel sorry for me.

I’ve been crying. A whole lot, lately. I’ve been grieving the loss of someone important to me. When I was younger, I would have thought my crying was an indicator that something was wrong with me — and that I needed to suck it up and STOP. Now, I recognize my sadness as a healthy […]
