Highlights from the Episode

-The “inner voice” Kelly talks about is the place of wisdom inside of us, not the voice that beats us up — it takes practice to be able to discern between the two.

-How we can try on our inner voice to see what it feels like in our physical body, like we would a dress.

“Is this me? Is this who I am? Is this who I want to be? Why do I think that I need this? Is this something that somebody told me I needed?”

-The importance of a consistent morning practice and what that Kelly’s looks and feels like.

-Connection to higher power and divine source — how Kelly believes this power is rooting for her to succeed and it comes through in intuitive hits of awareness.

“When I meditate, I don’t get voices speaking to me… I just get really still because usually up there in my brain I’m a hot mess.”

-The origin of the title “inner voice coach” and how that relates to her career as a professional flutist and teacher.

-The challenge of trusting your inner voice and how it relates to risk taking.

-The through line of Kelly’s life and work in music, triathlon and coaching.

-Growth and learning through fear and failure.

-Kelly’s struggle with perfectionism and how it carried over into her journey into motherhood with a child with special needs.

“I had this amazing realization that in order to love him just how he is, I needed to love myself just how I am.”

-One of the main sources of dissatisfaction in life is not authentically being who you are, and it can be scary to practice that authenticity.

-The importance of community and people who can hold space to accept you no matter what.
