You guys, I am so excited to announce my newest online space – the Soul Seeker Inner Circle! I used to stress out so much about my emails. What should I write? How many people will actually read it and how many will leave? Is this even helpful? And still, week after week I am so drawn to write. I love it. But I wasn’t in love with my writing space. So…I changed it. (You’re allowed to do that)
I wanted to LOVE opening my email campaigns, love working on them, and pour more intention into what I created for my readers. I sent out a survey and the results really did surprise me. You want more self-development and purpose. You want more articles and more resources. Well, I can do that.
I created the Soul Seeker Inner Circle. A place for guidance, support, insight, community, and a behind-the-scenes of my own process. You will get more about voice, playing big, the fear gremlins, success, fulfillment, connection, and purpose.
Every month I’ll send my best ideas, insights, and support to your inbox to help you live on purpose, create fulfillment, and a life that matters. Join your community (it’s free!) and welcome to the life of a soul seeker.
EACH MONTH YOU’LL GET:
- Articles I pour my heart and truth into – I write about purpose, answering your calling, money, connection, using your voice, being a leader, and help you to do the inner work.
- Journal prompts and workbooks – I love journal writing! It is a very dear practice of mine. Every week you’ll get a journal prompt and sometimes I’ll send you a digital journal workbook to help you dive into your process even more.
- Quotes I’m gushing over – Quotes are the best. They so quickly get to the heart of the matter. I will share my favorites every week to help inspire you and get you asking better questions of your life and purpose.
- Purple Room Book Club – I am a book lover and each month I’ll share my 2-3 favorites I am currently indulging in.
- Inner Circle Exclusive Offers – Be the first to know about Awaken Your Practice and exclusive virtual events and coaching calls.
- Fun Giveaways – Journals, books, workbooks, I have plenty to share!
SIGN UP WITH YOUR EMAIL BELOW AND YOU’LL GET MY JOURNAL TO THE SOUL WORKBOOK AS MY INITIAL THANK YOU GIFT!
This is probably the easiest article I have ever written because I am SO grateful for what just unfolded last weekend. I witnessed people finally put on paper what they WANT, that BIG vision that almost feels too big to be true and then spend three days getting into alignment so they can make it happen.
When I first started to write the book for Awaken Your Practice I thought I was just outlining some ideas to compliment the teachings. Six months later and a book that is 248 pages in my hands I can say this is not just an outline of ideas – somewhere along the way I poured my everything into this book and program. I finally acknowledged that I know some things and have some strong beliefs about this thing we call self-development and the powerful tool called coaching.
Yes, this weekend was designed for entrepreneurs and change leaders who are building purposeful lives from their heart center. For people who’s purpose IS their vocation. But the ENTIRE focus is on YOU. Your essence, your being, what makes you, you. Of the 248 pages, less than 5 pages are about “business”, “marketing”, and “sales.”
you do is not nearly as important as WHO you are. And now that this weekend is complete I know I made the right choice to keep the focus where I did. I am still processing this whole experience but I want to share a few of my biggest takeaways from the weekend.
No matter if you want to launch a business, start a non-profit, create a foundation, be the next Gabby Bernstein or Oprah, or change the entire money system you are human, first. You are susceptible to things like fear, judgment, uncertainty, stories, habits, patterns, and you have a history. Give space to your humanity because you have to go through your humanness to launch your big beautiful purpose.
Asking “how” will stop you before you start
Too often the complexity of our big idea is too much to wrap our minds around. We don’t know how we’re going to possibly get our idea off the ground because we don’t dream in small, baby dreams we dream in BIG LIFE ALTERING dreams. But even these have the first step. Find your first step or asking, “how?” will keep you from even getting started.
Money is involved
Money is a game. It can also be a game changer. Whether you agree with the system of money or how it plays out in our world today, if you have it, spend it, hoard it, save it or give it away you are part of the game. Find a way to be congruent in this game and to play it in a way that empowers you and the people you serve.
You deserve to see what you’re capable of
You were not simply placed on this planet to breathe. You are conscious and you know you exist. You can think about life and live it at the same time. This is called self-awareness. We are in a changing time. Because of technology, industry is not what it used to be and I believe that conscious commerce is the new social change agency of tomorrow. It’s the business builders and leaders who turn problems into profitable solutions that can dramatically alter our world for the better. But this means your ideas have to come out of your head and heart and into the world!
Mostly what I take away from the weekend is that people are amazing. Our ability to connect and share is so awesome. To sit in a room with change leaders for three days and see them go to their core and clear their stories and fears in the name of more service and more possibility doesn’t give me hope, it IS hope in action.
I am already getting requests for the next one (thank you!). Early Bird enrollment opens Monday (I am opening 5 early spots at $797) and the next AYP is March 24-26, 2017. We’re just getting started 🙂
Light and love,
Today I am giving myself permission to take a much-needed breath.
I am taking a pause and some space to reflect and get ready for the weekend ahead. To put the things we create into the world is fun, scary, exciting, and full of unexpected twists and turns. No matter how organized, prepared or ready you think you are there’s intention and then there’s life.
Today I need to make some space for life. In less than four days I have people from all over coming to Awaken Your Practice. This thing that for whatever reason had to be born through me. And I am so grateful it did. Because, as much as I am its creator I am also its student.
In the last two weeks, I’ve been meeting with my guest teachers, finalizing the teaching schedule, ordering supplies, renting chairs, ordering coffee, stocking up on markers, printing forms, and putting some love into a few surprises for the students. This is the last push but the one thing I haven’t done is b r e a t h e.
Because taking a breath isn’t encouraged, is it? Hustle. Push. Drive. Create. Sell. Do. These things are encouraged. I get it, it’s the actions you take that get you from where you are to where you want to go. Dreams require movement.
Movement without being centered is called burn out.
Movement from your center is called passion.
Awaken Your Practice is certainly a passion project. And the people coming this weekend are working in their passion projects or at least they desire to be.
The AYP book opens with a return to your center and ends with a call to surrender and let go. Today I surrender. I am so proud of this teaching and the people who felt called to attend it. I have done everything I need to do. I’ve written, connected, shared, and created the space. And now all I have to do is show up and share.
Believe it or not, the actual teaching is the easy part.
We all know how to BE the thing we’re called to. We know how to create, write, photograph, build, coach, design, stretch, and share. It’s letting ourselves play big, ask people to show up, have the courage to say what we’re brilliant at and dare to be seen that is the real work.
It’s our contribution that defines us. When you answer your calling this is what you’re really doing. Contributing.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
So here’s to what calls you and whispers from your heart in the middle of the night. Here’s to the silent knowing that tugs at you. And to you answering it for the world to bask in.
Now I am off to walk among the trees and take the most sensational breath.
Light and love,
