Awakened Versus Codependent Feedback

Hello   Awakening  Healer! I write this before heading to the beach for the first ever Shadow Guide Immersion experience working with the energies of my Messages From Shadow Oracle Deck and Healing System with 8 healers for 5 days. This intimate retreat sold out so quickly with those in my soul circle that I never had a chance to talk about it publicly, but if you feel a resonation with this opportunity, stay tuned for more offerings in the months to come as there is more on the way! Before I traveled to the immersion, I felt called to explore a topic today that has woken up a lot of awareness in me over the years. I invite you to breathe into this question and notice what awakens in you for presence and attention. Do you request feedback about your practice from a space of power or permission? Pause, breathe and notice. Let’s lean into this a little more… How often do we allow ourselves to be seduced by popular consciousness and buy into the idea that we need others’ opinions and approval or permission before we know if something is worthy of coming to life–our website, our logo, our new product or service, etc? When we seek feedback from a space of fearing our unworthiness, we begin to seek permission, validation and approval and unconsiously make others responsible for the birth of our offerings. We give away our power, abandon our own inner knowing and shrink, disconnecting from the very essence of the Truth of that which wants to come to life. This holds a frequency of Codependent Feedback…’I...

Decoding Jealousy in Business

Hello  Beautiful  Healer  Soul! Today I’d like to connect about a topic that doesn’t seem to have the fondest reputation. Actually I’ve noticed myself and many others cringing as this energy rises up for compassionate witnessing and we tend to tuck it away, ashamed of it’s mere existence, fearing that it may mean something unfavorable about ourselves. I’m talking about the energy of jealousy. I invite you to pause here for a moment. Jealousy. What words, feelings, sensations, and thoughts show up for you as you tune into it? Have you created a space where the parts of you on the giving and/or receiving end can be held and supported? Before entrepreneurship, I met the energy of jealousy in personal relationships when I feared that someone or something I loved may be “taken” from me. The parts of me who felt their worth was dependent on people staying or acting in a particular way made basically any human being a potential threat to me and my worthiness. Eeek! Still breathing through the residual grief from these moments. As I journeyed into entrepreneurship, jealousy began to emerge in spaces and places that my conscious mind couldn’t always understand. The energy of jealousy joined me… In moments when a colleague is celebrating a business accomplishment and I really want to join them, but instead feel this tightness in my belly and chest that makes it hard to stay present with their joy. In that moment when I discover someone else’s email list is bigger than mine or they’re filling their offerings more quickly or more abundantly than I am and…   In...

My Antidote to Resistance + Group Webinar

Hello  Beautiful  Healer! Another Monday arrives and the truth is that I didn’t really feel like writing this blog today. I’ve had a relaxing weekend and the thought of turning on my computer and coming up with something to talk about just felt overwhelming and unappealing if I’m being honest with myself. (I’m not the only entrepreneur who dances with resistance, right!?) But here you are reading this post from me so as you can see I’m either… 1) Forcing myself to write something even though I don’t feel like it because I’m “supposed to” or 2) The feeling passed and I’m feeling the flow of inspiration again. Today it’s the latter. The feeling passed and I’m back in the flow of inspiration because I activated my Antidote to Resistance and I feel called to share it with you now in case you may choose to use it too. I used to be in the habit of forcing myself to do all kinds of things that didn’t resonate with me, but now that I have discovered this antidote, I notice that my inspiration returns more easily and the days of intense resistance are fewer and farther between. If you’re waiting for some major a-ha moment, you may or may not find it here as it’s really quite simple even though our ego might have us believe that it’s very complex. The interesting thing I’ve found is that resistance just wants to be acknowledged and given permission to be present and as soon as we enter the energy of permission, a space is created where resistance doesn’t have to intensify...

When our heart leads, our clients follow

As we ease into a fresh week, I invite you to join me for an exploration of this sacred awareness that rose up in me… “When Our  Hearts  Lead, Clients  Follow” In a world where our sensitive souls may often feel overwhelmed and bombarded with 12 step plans and extensive strategies that say we have to get it “right” or our practices will fail, I find myself breathing into the refuge of my heart and using it as the compass that guides me. With few “heart centered” entrepreneurs to look to as examples of what this kind of leadership looks like, I have often found myself with questions like… How do I know when I’m leading with my heart? Is my heart really powerful enough to show me the way? Can I compete with others if I’m ignoring seemingly popular strategies and listening to the wisdom within? Here’s what I’ve discovered… I know I’m leading with my heart when I feel expansive and not desperate for a particular outcome. My heart is the most powerful guide for showing me the way because it is connected to my soul who signed the contract agreeing to what I came here to experience so it always knows the route to invite me in that direction. There can be no competition when I lead with my heart because the vibration of each heart is unique and the soul’s I am meant to serve and support will always respond to my vibration when I am connected to it. Are you feeling a resonation with heart centered practice building? Let’s deepen into this sacred conversation...

Hello 2017, Goodbye to playing it safe

Happy  New  Year! As we transition into a new cycle, I am feeling a call to bare yet another layer of myself and reveal a deeper Truth of who I am. Today will be a turning point for us and as you read this blog, I invite you to lean into whether it resonates with you to join me moving forward.  The theme that revealed itself to me for 2017 is DEPTH. As I lean into this word, I hear that it is a sacred invitation to go deeper within to unravel aspects of myself and my work at new and more expansive levels. It’s time to get curious about where I’ve gotten comfortable floating on the surface and hiding behind masks that keep my light dim and my voice quiet. It’s time to release another layer of blending in and give myself permission to stand out. #Yikes! After birthing Galactic Vibrations, a new branch of my business partnership with weekly cosmic forecasts and sacred shopping, I realized that one of the ways I’ve played it safe in our relationship is to censor the depth of how I allow my spiritual and intuitive consciousness to show up. I realize that in many ways I have been cushioning my intuitive perspective and approach to healing and business in a way that a part of me has decided will be digestible to the masses and it’s become exhausting to hide in this way. Maybe you are familiar with the exhaustion of hiding too? I’m realizing it’s a universal theme #WeAreAllConnected Well, today I’m creating more space for my heart to show...

Boundaries in Practice

Today I’m inviting us into a conversation about the vulnerability of boundaries in our business. Will you join me in this sacred exploration? I know as therapists and healers we often explore boundaries in terms of client relationships and ethics, but today I’d like to take another angle and share a story with you about the way I practiced boundary setting in the business aspect of my work last week and what I noticed as a result of taking this vulnerable step. For the last year or so I’ve had a growing sense that I’ve outgrown my website. While the energy and words are aligned with how me and my work are evolving, the visual imagery still feels rooted in the space I was in when I created it a few years ago and I’ve been leaning into how this wants to evolve to meet me where I am now. One of the visions that rose up in me as I sat with this exploration is that my site wants new photos that depict a raw-er and more vulnerable side of me. #Yikes Cue the tummy flutters, please! As I sat with my fear of having a less “professional” headshot and giving myself permission to reveal a deeper part of myself on the inter-webs, I simultaneously began to call in a photographer that could hold space for a sacred shoot and capture this side of me on camera. A few weeks ago I was thrilled to see that a photographer I’ve followed for some time was offering a black friday deal so I took the leap and bought the...
