In Marian’s Voice:

“20% of the population is what you might call highly sensitive. Sensitivity is when you're in a room and you're feeling what other people are feeling or picking up on just different things.”

“I received a download of the reason why I kept getting sick. Then, I just got this download of all these metaphors that each illness had a very clear metaphor for what had happened to me in my life and how I needed to heal.”

“The control of is the difference I think between being in your head and being in your heart. When you're in your heart there's an allowing there. It is hard to let go of control.”

“What you do need to clear and get clear about is what’s in the way of your peace of mind, of your happiness.”

“When people begin to stand up in their sensitivity as a strength, it then becomes something that is way more powerful as opposed to hiding it and acting like it’s unimportant.”

“When we let go of the perfectionism of trying to be something that we're not or trying to be more like something that we think we should be like and just allow ourselves to be who we are, it changes everything.”

“Even though we talk about risk when you have your own business, it doesn’t mean that we’re taking all these crazy risks. It’s accepting that there’s a level of uncertainty because we can never know. But us being okay with it, being okay with being a little bit uncomfortable.”

“Some people find it quite overwhelming to define your purpose - it feels very big. It’s like you’re trying to find the meaning of life. And that can be quite scary and uncomfortable actually.”

“It’s up to you to define what that aim or purpose is. And I think the reason why it’s so important is because we get caught up in other people’s definitions.”

“Your mission statement is a beautifully crafted sentence or it’s some kind of visual tool like a vision board or some other format.”

“Looking back at your past experiences, looking at how you feel now, and looking into the future can be a great way to identify what you need more of and perhaps what you need less of as well.”
