Activate Now

Lucy Colangelo

I'm a former communications expert turned curiosity coach and clarity mapping fanatic. Thanks to discovering the power of self-activation I've created the ShineOn™ Method. It offers a practical solution that supports anyone interested to discover, clarify and master becoming their best selves. My mission is to introduce clarity mapping to as many people as possible, especially our youth because I believe we're never too young to get into a conversation with ourselves. read less

#22: Creating that Parent-Teen Connection-Get Curious About Who They Are
“I feel called to speak to parents, called to invite them into this new conversation with themselves, to be reflective, to see why they feel the impulses and the urges to lead in the way that they do in their parenting relationship. And especially if they come to me and they're asking that they want to do better than just surviving the teenage years, they want to be thriving in those years. Well, it's about that tuning-in and that curiosity and creating that connection with the child. And I can tell you, I have yet to meet a teenager that doesn't light up when they're with me. When they truly believe that I am curious about who they are. It's my, it's my access point, when I'm able to make that connection and say, you know what? It's all inside you. You've got it. Let's explore, let's investigate, let's get curious. I want to know you. I want to know what you're all about, what you're here to do. All that good stuff. It unlocks them and it opens this access to all these potentials, all this possibility, all this wonder and amazement about how they fit into this world and what they're here to create and do. And the parents that can reflect on how they came to be in this position, in this parenting role, and reflect on what their goals are as parents to get their child to adulthood, developmentally, that's a parent that's done some work and some self-reflection." It's important for parents to recognize that adolescence is a critical period in a child's life where they are developing their sense of self and forming their identity. Parents can play a significant role in supporting their child's development by being present, engaged, and open-minded. Self-reflection can be a powerful tool for parents to gain awareness of their own biases, beliefs, and behaviors that may impact their relationship with their child. By examining their own upbringing and experiences, parents can gain a deeper understanding of how they came to be who they are and how that may influence their parenting. This can help parents become more attuned to their child's needs and feelings, leading to more effective communication and a stronger relationship. Overall, the parent guide has the potential to provide valuable insights and guidance for parents navigating the challenges of raising a teenager.

#21: Consistent imperfection beats inaction every time.
In this special collaboration with Driven Life, we're exploring how the ShineOn™ Framework can support you when you're learning something new or navigating the unknown. Lucy joins Anissa Marcanio and Miguel Diaz, as a guest in their private community. They are building the fastest growing online health and fitness coaching company in Canada, Driven Life. They discuss the power of consistent imperfection in the journey towards reaching our fitness goals. Lucy talks about how the ShineOn™ Framework can provide you with the confidence and clarity you need to succeed in any area of your life. She shares how it helps her stay consistent even if some days are far from perfect! With ShineOn™ Clarity Mapping there are three parts, Mindset, Clarity and Action. The discussion gets into how mindset can help individuals identify their values, strengths, and weaknesses, and create a sustainable roadmap for achieving their goals. Getting and staying focused, on the bigger picture helps us stay in it when things get tough. Lucy shares that she sums up her goals in the area of fitness by three things. She is committed to being nourished, strong and happy. Every day she checks in that she's making choices and taking actions that satisfy that desire. Taking a sustainable approach where your days don't have to be 'perfect' to reach your goals can help you stay in the game and work your plans to support their overall health and well-being. Lucy shares her 'hamster wheel of suffering' story of how she got stuck and how she got out of it. Her realization helps her put an emphasis on self-care and self-compassion in maintaining motivation and staying on track... however imperfectly! When it comes to winning it's all about transforming from the inside out. Stay in the game by letting go of perfection... tune-in and get ready to be inspired! Ready to ShineOn™? Start using mindset, clarity and action, for your goals today!

#16: Exploring what it takes to have a freedom mindset
This is the freedom episode with our special guest Gareth Rafferty.  Your mind being free is critical to this whole experience because, without it, your definition of your future is being dictated by someone or something else. I am here to empower a new conversation that leaves things open. A possibility. What's the great thing that could happen? Not a predictable thing. You have two tracks here. Your life could become very predictable, and it could create an illusion of safety for you psychologically in some capacity because every day is the same day and you know what's happening, you're curious and you're like, Hey, but what if we kind of broaden the definition and we kind of look at what's possible here. What could you get up to that you’d be excited about and say this is me. This is who I am. This is who I came here to be in this world, and I'm pretty awesome at it. Me having this conversation with you is something that I haven't been giving myself permission to do for years. And that comes up in Clarity Mapping. It comes up in the work that I do. Freedom, meaning, and expression. Those are the things you need your mind to feel, you're finding meaning in your life. So you're exploring things, you're being curious, you're doing a great job, things are changing and it's going to be disruptive and it's going to be unpredictable because you're really in alignment with yourself and you're speaking your truth. And the more you do that, the more you're going to find people that get it and they're going to be in alignment with you and they're going to be supporting you in this curiosity and in this exploration so that you can process your life and feel empowered and find your way.

#15: Curiosity is the superpower that helps develop self awareness and find conscious direction in life
Get curious about yourself to answer the question of who you really are. Curiosity is your superpower. In order to confidently say, "This is who I am.", start by getting really curious about who that person may be. If you are curious about who you are...  you get yourself into an investigator mind. You generate a light hearted and playful approach to explore what's possible, like a beginner mind, when you're learning something for the first time. If I hadn't stayed curious, stayed in the game, looking to unlock what those answers might be for me, I don't think I'd be the person that I am today. I know for sure ShineOn™ wouldn't exist and I'm pretty sure I'd still have these burning unanswered questions about who I might have become and what I might have created had I had the courage to get curious and take a look. To see what might come up. Take the journey of being curious and UNLOCK yourself to access your full potential. Share with me... what's coming up for you? How might you get curious about who you are today? Let's talk about it! Stay curious to love who you are becoming! Lucy  P.S. Need support to get curious?
