How to Create Success that FEELS Good

Recently, I lead an interactive talk/workshop tiled the Provocative Path to Playing Full-Out Professionally.

{If you read to the end you will have the opportunity to experience one of the exercises that was designed for the workshop but we didn't get to.} During our time together, we laughed, cried and most importantly got real.

Woman after woman shared how unsure of how to honor their education and experience and their inner-callings. Some even spoke about how unseen they feel with their titles because their work is so much more profound and they don't feel recognized. They know they have all these talents and gifts but their potential is not being fully expressed and their soul won’t allow them to ignore it anymore. Yet they are scared or confused on how to embrace the parts of themselves that are so deeply wanting to be shared. Can you relate? I supported these women to give voice to these unseen parts through what I call soul speak. For some it was about being more bold. For others it’s was about being more soft. What was interesting was how many shared how much they have been running away from these parts of themselves. I get this on such a deep level (that’s the part I ran away from, my depth) We each have our own unique journey but what is the same is we can’t hold our true selves back any more. Each day we ignore that inner-voice, it chips away at our self-worth and ripples into our day jobs & relationships. We get resentful of our relationships and snap at the very people we are putting before our expression. I know this dynamic too. For years I worked hard accomplishing a lot - but underneath I knew their was something else. I was scared of change and couldn’t even admit it. When my coach named it for me, I felt like a mask was taken off. Even though I deeply desired to share my true self, it felt very vulnerable because the image I projected to the world was about being strong and having it all together. I felt naked being so in my truth about not wanting to be a pharmacist but it was the best thing that could ever have happened. And that’s what I want for you. Perhaps you have tried to get help with making a change. Maybe you even hired a coach, enrolled for trainings on how to start a blog/write a book or have a drawer full of trainings and certifications. Or maybe you are just so stuck that you think about these things but can’t seem to take a step forward. What I have learned on my own journey and working with lots of people is that it’s not about the information and trainings. What holds people back is so much deeper and it’s often rooted in past disappointments and following a plan/path that is not aligned with their unique style. But who wants to hang out in disappointment? And if you are highly educated, doing things your own way can feel un-grounding because we are so used to following steps instead of our soul. In my next newsletter, we can dive deeper into it but for now, lets get a taste and have some fun :-) During the talk I offered a handout with 3 exercises and we only got to 2 of them (we had such a good time sharing.) The 3rd exercise was to write yourself a permission slip. Since we didn't have a chance to get to it, I decided to share a video recording of the exercise and I want to share it with my virtual community too. It's a guided meditation to help you really get to your deep desire and a fun exercise on how to strengthen the energy artistically (optional of course.) We need to do this because part of the frustration comes from wanting to be safe (following a set plan) while our soul is like nope...I don't want to do it that way because it's not in alignment with my values. It's like putting your foot on the gas pedal and break at the same time. Flipping back and forth between intellect and intuition - the brain and the heart is why we get exhausted and reach burn out. Preparation and Integration is what allows for sustainability around alignment. When we take time to connect to our heart and soul and work the energy first (in an aligned way) we land in the world of possibility and create resonance (which can take time.) When we are honest & playful, we create opportunities that don't require effort and dare I say, come to us in magical ways. I call this replacing hard work with doing hard things (like having fun & relaxing) - I see you over-achiever. We do need to take action and support the magic but lets just focus on this part for now. Here is a video where I go more into it and walk you through a visualization.

If you want the pdf of the drawing I mention in the video - please hit reply or send me a message on my website. If you do the exercise, I would loooooooooove for you to share your permission slip in my Goddess Winks FB group where we totally celebrate practical magic or if you are feeling shy just hit reply.

Happy Permission Giving.....and don't forget to share!
