New video: I say no to most opportunities to grow my business and I think YOU should too!

February 15, 2019

This week I said no to a business opportunity because saying yes would go against my values.

I do this a lot.

I don’t believe it’s bad for business, like people tell me. I believe it’s GOOD for business when all of the decisions you make are congruent with your values.

I think it’s time to collectively drop the idea that, as artists and healers and creative entrepreneurs, we’re supposed to “follow the rules” about how to do business. Let’s lead by our inner wisdom!

I have a lot to say about this, in this week’s video for dreamers:

Signal Boost is a Coaching Group for Artists, World-Changers and Dreamers.

Our aim: to untangle the tangles we all get into around visibility to support your important work of sharing your gifts with the world. 

This is a three week coaching group, from March 4 – 31, with follow-up support until April 4.

Friday Video: Being super inspired about a new thing and then hitting the self-doubt and not being able to start

February 8, 2019

We all have ways that we hide and hold back from sharing our brightest creative gifts with the world.

You probably know what your patterns are. You may even be stuck in one of them right now.

I get it! Visibility can be terrifying.

Putting your creative heart out there on display is NOT for the weak of heart.

And yet… and yet…

Just hiding away and not sharing your creative gifts isn’t an option either. Your creative spirit speaks way too loud for that to be a real option.

Instead of getting all tangled up in how awkward visibility is, I am inviting you to join me in PLAYING with these places where you hide and hold back.

Let’s work on this together!

Let’s experiment and explore and see where we can open up new possibilities for HOW we put ourselves out there!

The only rules:

  • No pushing or forcing.
  • No fake it till you make it.
  • Full on authenticity and wholehearted sharing.

You can be afraid. You can doubt yourself. You can feel not ready!

AND you can still shine your light.

The world is waiting…

Free Alchemy Process: Turning The Obstacle into the Way Through

February 1, 2019

When I talk about how how working WITH obstacles is the key to making progress with your dreams, I know you’re probably thinking that YOUR obstacle is the exception to this.

It’s not.

And I want to show you exactly what I mean, so I am sharing this Creative Dream Alchemy process for working with obstacles.

If you think your obstacle is insurmountable, this meditation will show you that it’s not.

At the end of this meditation I give you a question and ask you to write it in your journal. At that point I just leave the music to play out to give you some time journal about the question.

Alchemy For Artists, World-Changers + Dreamers: Turning The Obstacle Into The Way Through starts on Monday.

This is a 3 week coaching group, from Feb 4 to 24 – with extra follow-up support until March 5.

If you’ve got an obstacle and you’re ready to NOT have it – this is for YOU!

At the end of our time together you will know exactly what you need to do next. You will understand how to work WITH your obstacle, instead of letting it stop you.

It’s going to be an amazing adventure!

There are 3 things you can do with your fear:

January 31, 2019

1: Pretend you don’t feel it. Think positive. Fake it till you make it. 

Your fear will stay inside you, in a tight little ball and trying to “rise above it” will take a lot of your energy.

In fact, it will take so much of your energy you won’t have the power you need to create what you want in your life. So you just stay where you are.

2: Feel it, get lost it in and let it take charge. 

Your fear will happily take the car keys from you, and drive you into The Land Where No Dreams Come True, Ever.

We all visit this place from time to time, but it’s a really sad place to build your home in.

3: Feel through it. Use it as a doorway into the Land Of Dreams Come True.

Fear is a signal that lights up like a billboard pointing you towards an opportunity.

On the surface, this opportunity just looks like an awful feeling in the pit of your stomach, a huge overwhelm, all the ways that fears manifest for you.

So don’t stay on the surface. 

Deeper down your fear has a message and a gift. It wants to show you where you are off in your thinking and approach. It wants to show you where you are shutting the door on the exactly possibilities you want to create. 

This is what we’ll do in my new coaching group.

Alchemy for Artists, World-Changers and Dreamers: Turning The Obstacle Into The Way Through.

Together we’ll dive deep into the obstacle to discover the opportunities and possibilities that are facing you right now.

Having an obstacle between you and your dream is such a vulnerable thing.

January 30, 2019

The obstacle can feel like this harsh reminder that not only do you not have what you really want – you don’t even know how to make it happen.

It’s like a sign from the universe that says NO DREAMS FOR YOU.

From the time when I first started trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, I always knew I wanted to be creative and free.

But there were never any “just be creative and free and we’ll pay you a good wage” jobs in the newspaper. (OMG it’s been so long since I looked for a job – do people even use the newspaper to look for work anymore?)

While I always had that drive to pursue my dreams, I never knew how to get there.

My best idea was to visualize and pray for some kind of patron to discover me and give me a career doing what I wanted to do.

That drive to pursue my dream led me to burn out trying and failing, which eventually led me to start taking classes in spiritual, personal and emotional growth because I was just so depleted from failing at everything.

At the time I secretly hoped I could discover the RIGHT way to pray for that magic patron to find me to get me out of this mess.

Instead I discovered that actually facing the obstacle, and all of my awkward and painful feelings about it, WAS the way through.

I spent the next seven years going deep into all of that mess, untangling my inner patterns, bringing love and healing to my doubts and fears and forging a whole new relationship with my inner critic.

I have been on every side of this.

I have felt too small to be able to get over my huge mountain-sized obstacles, I have felt impossibly stuck, I have felt deep faith in my purpose and I have felt so full of possibility and magic that I could burst.

I have deeply and wildly resisted facing my obstacles because I was too scared to admit to myself how scared I was.

And I have bravely worked through things I thought would hold me back forever.

And now I know FOR SURE that working with your obstacle is the fastest route to growth, healing and dreams come true.

Turning the obstacle into the way through is now one of my favourite things to do.

Turning the Obstacle into the Way Through: Alchemy for Artists, World-Changers + Dreamers is a supportive creative cocoon for facing the hard stuff and coming out stronger on the other side.

This is a 3 week coaching group, from Feb 4 to 24 – with extra follow-up support until March 5.

If you’ve got an obstacle and you’re ready to NOT have it – this is for YOU!
