I have met dimensions of myself that would otherwise have remained arrested behind a shame wall, probably for the rest of my life. And the truth is everyone can feel your shame. You're only as empowered as your darkest secret. It's felt. What it is to be with someone with their physical appearance, how it manifests. It shifts as we begin to de-secret these aspects of ourselves. That is the all-seeing eye. Our own conscious awareness. - Kelly Brogan MD

Do you have a felt sense that the way things are could be better? Are you tired of fighting systems that anger you, disappoint you, and feel dehumanizing? Do you sometimes feel that the nature of reality as it's been presented just doesn't add up?
Let Kelly Brogan support you in becoming a Sovereign Creator of
your own Reality.
Only then does the invitation into authentic power present itself through the prism of reckoning with how we were stuck in paradigms of struggle, dependency, and meaninglessness…
But what happens when the deception— one that we have colluded with and that has been handed down to us intergenerationally— runs even deeper than we’d like?
Well, we just keep asking questions and putting one foot in front of the other…
"Any single thing I don't like about my day, or an interaction, or a direction that my life is going in, for me is an opportunity to meet a part of myself." - Kelly Brogan MD
"Judgment + choice = discernment. When you recognize that you don't like something, you're judging it. And when you can see that you have choices, you're actually taking responsibility for what you control. Then you can exercise discernment which is basically: "Does this work for me or does it not work for me?" It helps us to smoke out where it is that we're power-overing and it's never more relevant than in the area of parenting."- Kelly Brogan MD
"I have had an opportunity to recognize where I am sourcing something that's not available and semi-insisting that it should be and that can lead to ruptures where both parties are seeing that something is not working here. That is the opportunity for me to get real with myself and to say with a sober mind, sober heart, and sober eyes: 'What are my choices here? Can I interact with this painful process without needing the individuals that I'm in dynamic with to be bad and wrong? What if they're not bad and wrong?' And yet I still get to choose to exit and express my needs. I get to choose to make requests. I have all sorts of choices and I would never be aware of those choices if my energy was focused on being right and on how wronged I've been." - Kelly Brogan MD
