Have You Felt the Shift?

Over the last few months, I have been talking about a spiritual paradigm shift.  An awakening to consciousness in every aspect of life…..business included.

A lot of you have been feeling it.  The old ways don’t quite work, or don’t resonate with you like they had.  And there may be a tendency to resist, to hold on to what no longer serves, because it is what is known.  Or you simply don’t know how.
When you trust your connection to your Source, the unknown actually becomes the best place to be.  It’s way better than what you can imagine.
Many of you have also been sensing this shift with me.  Almost four years ago, I knew I had to study everything about money and business that I could.  And at the same time, be spiritual, and do the shamanic work I’m known for.
There were amazing highs as well as amazing lows.  Money is energy, and it brings out so many aspects of a person that remain hidden – the gifts and the challenges.   It was an amazing ride that taught me so much.
And now the pendulum swings back. 
Yes, I definitely can help people understand their money story (and I still do)…..but that isn’t what alone creates the massive transformation.
It’s the spiritual connection.  The energetic awareness.   The willingness to trust and explore true spiritual power from a place of awe, instead of a task to do on your list.  It’s embodying on a cellular level your own inner wisdom.
From now on, I will be sharing with you even more what is going on energetically at the moment.  Lessons I have learned.  As well as practical ways to bring together both ancient wisdom with concrete action principles.  It will incorporate business, life, and much more.  It’s how I built what I did.
True spirituality, and energetic awareness is not woo-woo, strange, weird, out there.
It’s true power. 
And it’s time that it is treated that way.  Life and business is just easier that way.
I’m excited to have you on this ride with me.  It’s an amazing time to be alive.

It’s Time to Have Some Fun!

It’s summer 2010, and I’m sitting in the living room of one of my spiritual mentors, Wes Hamilton,  and he has his usual twinkle in his eye as he asks an important question.    What energizes you to keep going? 
I didn’t really know.  And I began talking about what I did at the University, with the shamanic work, and other things in my life.  I repeated a phrase over and over and didn’t even realize it.
What was that phrase?
“It’s fun”. 
I have remembered that lesson to this day and am eternally grateful for him coaxing the answer out of me.  I know that when something stops being fun for me, it’s time to move on.  It’s my soul’s compass showing me there is more to explore and experience.
So….what’s “fun” for you?  It will be different for everyone.
For me, it’s learning new things. Some of them were foreign language, shamanism, money, speaking, business.
For some of you it might be massive creativity, pushing the edge, getting results, organization, writing, technology, spirituality, and the list goes on.  It is unique to you
You might have noticed that I haven’t been posting as regular lately (or maybe you didn’t and that’s okay  :) .  I’m stepping into that new layer of fun for me, which ultimately leads to fun for you.  Being of service and having fun is where it is at.  It’s almost here.  I just needed to clear out some things.  Let go of ideas, teachers, etc.  to get to this new phase.
And this is something that many of you are feeling.  How can you add more fun to your life?  It’s the new paradigm shift I have been talking about.  The old ways don’t work from the head.
It’s time to bring in more heart and soul….and have some fun!

How are you going to have more fun?  Please share your thoughts here.

Seeing Through the Eyes of Your Heart

Hello everyone.  Happy Valentine’s Day!  Sending you all much love.

In the last week, I have been speaking with people about being comfortable knowing things and not knowing how you know it.  It’s just a sign that you are tapped into a deeper wisdom, and it shows with the work you do with your clients and how you interact with the world.
The other day, I was reading a book and came upon the phrase, “seeing from the eyes of your heart”.  I have been saying this for years, and I understand it at a deep cellular level.  Whenever I would talk about it, people would light up because they loved the expression and what it meant.
So, imagine my surprise and delight when I saw it in a book about a topic that is dear to my heart.  Shamanic wisdom that is heart based.
My message to all of you is to let your wisdom flow, open up, don’t question, trust.  We all are connected.  Expand even more into your true self.
So….for those of you who want to know a little bit more about seeing through the eyes of  your heart, I will be sharing more on my blog, and also here.
What does seeing with the eyes of your heart mean?
The basic idea is that so often we get caught in our heads, feeling pain and challenge because of someone else.  Most often, we have seen their inner nature, their essence, their heart.  Or we have felt it.  What is possible, and what their gifts are.  It’s awesome to be able to do that.  And at the same time, you need to let go of the results.  The other person has the option to live their life in their ways.  They might not want to become that version that you see with your heart.  Then it is time for deep compassion.  Everyone goes on this path and does what they are called to do.  We need to honor that.
That is not only seeing through the eyes of the heart, but loving from that heart based space.

Now all of this is relevant in your personal relationships, with yourself, and also with others.  Those you coach, mentor, interact with.  Those you call on the phone for strategy calls.  Those you meet who might be clients or not.  See the best in them, and give them the power to decide if they want to rise to that or  not.   And just be love.

The Energy of Jealousy

So today, there has been an up and down type of energy happening around.  People are feeling down, and then getting more energized.  It’s an up and down thing.

The commonality has been what I call the energy of jealousy.

When people are judgmental about your successes, or try and put you down, most often they are jealous.   And their energy goes out like pins to a pincushion.   And you become that pincushion.

If you are energetically sensitive, then you might feel it more.   And more often you will feel it if there is some subconscious belief that for some reason you don’t deserve it.  Or you need to hide it.  There can be a feeling of hiding your gifts, and stifling your ability to create an amazing life.

So, if you have felt this tug and pull thing today, sit down, take some breaths, and imagine any negative energy leaving you.  Then get really clear on how you get to step up in the world, and follow the signs on how to create your reality.

And guess what?  You will be even more public than before.  And that’s great.  The world needs your gifts.  And isn’t it about time that you got them out into the world.

Have fun today shifting things up.

P.S.  Also, if for some reason you have been envious of any people today…you know what to do.  Clean it up, and be happy for them.  What we put out matters.
