Sometimes, things are hard for a reason: it’s time to head a different direction. I was so inspired by a conversation I had the other day with a woman I’ll call Zara.
She was tired, frustrated, and felt stuck and overwhelmed about what to do next in her life and dream business. She felt like she was constantly pushing herself, always overwhelmed, and not sure what her next step should be. What she really wanted was to feel more at ease, more intuitive, to make clear choices about her next steps. To get where she dreamed of.
“What if it’s the approach you’re taking that’s getting in the way?” I asked her.
We talked some more and she had a big aha moment: all of the pushing, striving and only ever thinking of the dream she wanted to realize was actually costing her that dream. It made her feel overwhelmed and unsure and THAT kept her from taking action that would get her there.
She’s now exploring a very different way of getting where she wants to go–one that will take her one step at a time towards her dream. I call this Soul Powered Living. Right now, I’m clearing space in my calendar to have conversations about living in this way. If you’d like to be considered for one, you can apply here.
I was so inspired by a woman I spoke with last week. In our first conversation, Emma* shared how she was tired all the time, working a lot–sometimes nearly 20 hours straight–longing to spend more time on her dreams, and wishing she could earn more money.
Despite all of that, it was clear to me that Emma had a fierce spirit, a strong sense of what she really wanted, and a strength inside her. During our time together, we talked about what was really driving her to work so hard, and what was getting in the way of her dreams.
Emma experienced a life changing shift.
The next time we spoke, just 5 days later, Emma was a changed person. She had taken time each workday to go for energizing, soul-nourishing walks, had said ‘no’ to work requests that would have meant giving up that time, and as a result had the energy and time to say ‘yes’ to an unexpected request for her services–for more pay, on her own terms.
Woo hoo! I was dancing for her. The shift was so clear.
“I feel like you’re helpng me become like that bird,” she said to me, “The one in the quote about sitting on a branch trusting in her own wings.”
Yup. That’s what it’s all about. Learning this, and strengthening it in my own life has been life changing.
I call this Soul Powered Living. I’m hosting a live, in person intensive with me and a global teleseminar on how to live in this way, and you’re invited.
Note: I’m only accepting 20 women into the in-person intensive, and 10 spaces are already claimed.

If you look closely at this photo you can see me standing at the edge of the water. Guess what I’m doing?
I’m setting fierce and gentle intentions, and declaring them to the universe. It’s something I love to do when a new year comes along.
Since we’re always co-creating our lives, chances of getting what we truly desire and what lights us up to the core of our being are higher when we take some time to let life know.
Last year, I decided to explore European Living, having more fun, and opening myself wide up to blessings and miracles. I won’t say it was all a beautiful, easy ride. I had my ‘head under the covers, not coming out, ready to quit’ moments.
HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED
And, at the end of the year, I realized some pretty amazing stuff had happened:
1. I went on two super fun trips–to LA with my sister and to Seattle with my husband–and I foot the bill for a big chunk of the expenses. I LOVED getting to do this.
2. I hired a consultant to help me rock my book dreams. We’ve had some really cool things happen.
3. I started having 20K months.
4. I spent time during work days at coffee shops, hanging out with friends, and taking myself on adventures–this is the European Living part!
5. During one of my ‘head under the covers, not coming out, ready to quit’ moments I said ‘God, what do I do?’ and I got the answer loud and clear: ‘STAY THE COURSE.’
YEAR OF MAGICAL LIVING
As I stood at the edge of the ocean setting my intentions for 2017, I held a rock representing each one in my hand. And as I released it into the ocean, I said “In 2017 I will…”
– Follow my joy
– Not suck the joy out
– Count my blessings
– Co-create with Life and the Universe
This is my Year of Magical Living. I can’t wait!
Wanna join me?
I’ll be sharing details on a complimentary in-person workshop and tele-seminar coming up soon to everyone on this list. Don’t wanna miss out? Sign up here.
WANNA WATCH THE VIDEO? SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE POST. I’ve got a thing for facing my fear. But don’t think I’m doing the SkyJump in Vegas, or skiing The Coffin at Whistler-Blackcomb. I’m riding the bus. Going sailing. Answering the door. Doing regular things that cause me anxiety or make me worry–a friendlier…
I am Uncoordinated and Envious In high school I had good “friend” who was da bomb at dancing. I put “friend” in quotation marks so you know she wasn’t what I’d call a true friend these days—she was better at insults disguised as “I’m only telling you because I care” comments than she was at…
