How to Love Who You Really Are

If you’re like me, you’ve probably heard that you need to love yourself unconditionally, But then when you think about all those things you don’t do "right" or "good enough", you may say, I can’t possible love myself unconditionally.

As a matter of fact there are many things you probably do to avoid being with those parts of you – from sleeping to eating to chatting online and more.

Likelihood is you do anything you can to avoid being with certain aspects of you or with things that you do that you don’t consider good enough.

But if you knew who you really are you wouldn’t need to do that. You would be able to come from a whole different place with yourself.

Now when I say who you really are, I am not talking about your roles, your nationality, your race and NOT even your purpose.

Its about learning to see yourself through a whole new set of lenses.

And when you see yourself through these new lenses, it will impact every aspect of your life.

  • You will feel the stress leaving your body.
  • Have improved relationships
  • Better health and well-being.
  • More ease and success in your career.
  • And simply be happier in general.

If you want to see some changes in these areas of your life and do it from an entirely different way than you are doing now, join me Tuesday,September 21st at 5:00 PT/8:00 ET on Sentelligent Solution Radio to learn everything you need to know about this subject. I will tell you how to put this information to use in your life immediately.

I will also be doing f’ree intuitive readings to help you see your higher purpose, or what is in the way of having what you desire in any area of your life. And I will be going into more depth in the readings this week.

The Truth About Living a Spirit-Led Life

Living a spirit-led life is a lot like have a leader who guides you in ways that are for your highest and best. And when you listen to and follow that guidance, even when it does not seem to make sense, miracles happen.

I am going to share with you the truth about living a spirit-led life. This is from my own life over the past 6 months or so. Since I ‘ve been connecting with my guides regularly throughout the day and asking for guidance on a variety of things, my life has changed dramatically.

The house that I just bought at the beach was a spirit-led purchase. That doesn’t mean it was easy to buy this house. Actually, there was much I needed to clear along the way to making this house a reality. And I kept checking in with my guidance about what I needed to clear at each step and as a result we were able to buy the house and I have evolved spiritually in the process because of the tons of old beliefs and fears that I cleared to be able to allow this house and this move to happen.

I did it in a way that I never would have before in that I bought the house before I sold my current house. Luckily I am able to do that but that does not mean it was at all comfortable for me. It required a leap of faith. – and it took lots and lots of clearing to have that faith. Even after we closed on the house, I had more fears and beliefs come up. I cleared those yesterday and today someone called to schedule to show our house to a prospective buyer.

Note: I was told by other guides that the buyer would show up after we had the house because we needed to have everything lined up before we sold the house so that we would have a place to live. So now after a long period of no one looking at the house, we have someone coming who I am told is a good prospect.

Lots of other wonderful things have happened since following my guidance regularly. I am having more fun at my job than ever, I am doing this radio show in a way and format I never would have imagined (had a clear a lot to do that), biz is growing rapidly, opportunities abound, people tell me I look a lot younger, and I could go on.

But this is not about me. Now I want you to think about some thing that you consider to be in your way of having what you want. For example, maybe you want a new house but don’t have the money for the house you desire, or you want to do something and your spouse or friend does not want to do the same thing or your boss or client does not agree with you about something. You get the idea.

Whatever you think is in the way, is not really what is in the way. It is never anything external to us that is in our way. The only things in our way are the ways we look at things, think about things and act on things.

You may be wondering why I am talking about things when this conversation is about your spiritual evolution, but in fact, everyday life is what leads us to identify the thoughts in the way of our evolution. And our evolution makes everyday things happen easier. Since we are in human form, the two go together.

Our body talks louder so we can get quieter

Most of us understand the mind-body connection and that everything is related.  Well, we understand it mentally. But I continue to get this knowing at deeper and deeper levels.  Perhaps that is because the amount of time that it takes for my  body to let me know I am off track is getting shorter and the decibel level is getting louder.  Or am I just more aware?  Perhaps both.

My husband, Mike, has aptly named it my back-up alarm.  This is definitely a man thing. You know how heavy equipment like forklifts, construction equipment and even sanitation trucks make a noise that goes beep, beep, beep when they back up.  It’s a safety feature.

Well, when I do something that takes away from my peaceful state, my body has an alarm system that almost instantly lets me know I am headed in the wrong direction.

Here are a few examples:alarmblue

When I am trying to figure something out in my head – I get a headache.

When I am putting pressure on myself to make something happen (which I was doing last night) – I got severe pain in my left shoulder and in my stomach.

It used to work for me to make things happen from my head — those days are long gone.

Here’s another one. A while back I was  annoyed with some people  who were supposed to do some things for me and it wasn’t happening in the way I had planned.  I got a strong pain in my neck. (get it – subconsciously I thought they were are a pain in the neck and it showed up as tension in my neck).

When I pay attention to these signs, and understand what they are trying to tell me, I can then then  release  energy from that place in my body and then the pain goes away.  No medicine required. Sometimes it takes a while to understand what my body is trying to say. And sometimes, I need an outside perspective.  But once I get it, it makes perfect sense.

How does your body let you know you are off track or headed in the wrong direction?

Pay attention and let us know.

Are the glitches disrupting your peace of mind?

peaceful entrepreneur ripples

It is not uncommon to find glitches in our systems, in our program, in our lives.  We like everything to run smooooothly.  And many times it does.  And sometimes, it doesn’t.  So what to do when it happens?  Do you let this disrupt your peace of mind? For how long?

Today I was looking at my sign ups for my newsletter and one thing led to another. For whatever reason, I decided to sign up for my Living Your Dreams newsletter at the landing page of The Dream Movie and found that after I confirmed my subscription, it took me to a blank page that said something like “nothing here.”

My initial go to place was minor “panic”.  As entrepreneurs, I am sure you have heard the saying that the money is in your list.  Sounds a bit harsh. The truth is this is the main way I communicate with people who are interested in what I do.

I sent my assistant an email to look into it, but then my problem-solving mind wanted to figure it out.   After researching it and testing it for about 15 minutes, I am still puzzled as it appears to be set up correctly.

But I have other priorities for the day. I had to remind myself that all is well.  People are still signing up everyday.  Approximately 200 new people opt to receive my Living Your Dreams newsletter through that particular movie every month. They are still getting their confirmation email.

This is not worth disrupting my peace of mind or my productivity.

After all I had a blog post to write 🙂  and a speech to prepare for. And a full slate of  coaching clients today.

So did this glitch disrupt my peace of mind? Did it disrupt my productivity?  Yes, but just slightly and for a very short period of time. I have delegated it and it will get fixed.  All is well.  And I had good fodder for my blog post.

How about you?  How are you dealing with the glitches in your systems? We can intend for things to run smoothly and that will help. But when glitches do happen, take a deep breath or better yet, do the OMM.  It will provide the space so you can see that the setbacks are temporary, they will get fixed and you don’t have to be the one to fix them. Then take a look and  see how you can make lemonade from it.

Let us know how you are dealing with glitches as they occur in your life.

PS.  If you are ready rise about the glitches and align with the clients and business you desire for the rest of 2009 and into the new year,  grab a copy of my free Client and Sales Attraction Accelerator Kit which includes audio and transcript of 24 of my best ways to align with your desires now.  It’s my gift to you.

Putting the "Play" back in "Playing Big"

Nearly 1/3 of the people in my Peaceful Entrepreneur survey said they were playing too small and that was affecting their peacefulness.

So how do you play big and remain peaceful? How do you juggle all the balls that need to be handled when you are playing big?

For what reason do you want to play bigger?

Notice the word “Play” is next to the word “Bigger”girlwithball

What if we actually “played” with it rather than making “big” so serious. I’ve been taking myself too seriously lately. I mean I love the One Minute Meditation and the “I’ll Pay You To Be Quiet Contest was and is a fun idea. And all of it is impacting people’s lives everyday. But somewhere along the line I got too serious about it.

What is that about? I got too attached. Yuck – not fun.

Can you relate? Do you take your big dreams too seriously? They are important . . . yes! And we can move towards them in a way that is light and fun and brings us joy …one step at a time … unfolding in the perfect manner and timing .. growing and expanding our consciousness as we do.

Ahhhh . . . much better

Next time I will talk about some other suggestions for playing bigger while maintaining inner peace.

Can You See ME?


You probably know about cover-ups from your experience with others and from what you are doing in your own life.

When a big name person or big company get’s caught in a cover up, we are all pretty quick to critique and condemn them for not being more forthright, honest or fair. Examples of this include…Martha Stewart, Watergate, lots of CEO’s and politicians I don’t want to name as they will bring up anger and that is not the point.

But the real lesson comes from looking inside. You see they are just a reflection. Maybe you didn’t skim money or take an insider tip or do what they are doing on a big level, but what are you covering up?

As a society, we have all been taught to put our best foot forward and I certainly agree with that. And we all have a dark side and it is not that we want to spew that all over other people either. So what is the middle ground? How can we put our best foot forward in our businesses and be really authentic at the same time.

People want us to be more authentic – they can relate to us as human beings that way. I think all of us have our authenticity sniffers turned way up these days. We don’t want to be taken for a ride anymore. We want to work with people who are genuine, and can truly help us get through these challenging times so we can thrive again but in new and different ways. Thriving doesn’t necessarily mean what it used to mean. It’s about thriving on life! And money to buy what we desire is also part of the equation but not the whole enchilada.

What does it really mean to be authentic? I am hearing that word being tossed around a lot these days by a lot of big name internet entrepreneurs?

Were you taught to look like you have it all together? I can remember my dad taking my hand one day and pointing at a woman and telling me, “don’t ever let yourself look like that.” I don’t remember what she even looked like but the directive stuck with me and I made it mean probably a lot more than he intended.

Anyway, I don’t have all the answers to today’s question but I thought I would start by telling you some things about myself that you probably don’t know. People do this a lot on Facebook and since many of you are not on Facebook yet, I wanted to share myself with you first.

Here are some things you probably don’t know about me:

  • I was born in NYC and have one older brother. From there I moved to Jacksonville, Florida and moved to Atlanta after going to college at Tulane. Okay, that’s the boring stuff.
  • My full name is Len Stacey Mayo although my parents always called me Stacey. In the 4th grade, I decided I wanted to be called Len and after my brother teased me and called me Leonard and I received mail from the army, I switched back to Stacey.
  • When I went to college, I thought I would become a social worker and join the Peace Corps – kind of ironic for a gal who doesn’t like to camp.
  • I majored in Business and have combined my love of making a difference in people’s lives with building businesses that make an impact.
  • My last soirée with politics was as President of my Freshman class in college, where I learned that I had no power to get us new washing machines and dryers in the dorms.
  • I stole a Coke from a crate outside a vending machine in camp when I was 7 years old. Luckily I got caught which ended my life of crime.
  • I love music but am not very musically inclined. I have fun singing with my hubby though.
  • I have always been a beach person until the last year or two when I got drawn to the mountains. Now I love both the beach and the mountains.
  • I created The One Minute Meditation™ to help me get peaceful and deal with stress during the day. I don’t remember to do it every hour either.
  • The photo you see on my website and newsletter was taken approx 12 years ago. Oops. Well, you can see the current me on my videos for now.
  • I get to stare at a beautiful 9 foot waterfall out of my office window every day that my husband built.
  • I’ve had my share of challenges – physical and emotional – which is why I am so passionate about helping others. I am not done with my challenges and share as I can of what I learn with my clients to make their lives better.
  • My first marriage (many moons ago) was pretty unhealthy and was to someone who had an alcohol addiction.
  • I have more wrinkles around my eyes than I like and wish I didn’t care. When I shoot videos in the right light, they are not so visible.
  • I am passionate about Peaceful Entrepreneur because I know there are better ways to do things for me and for you and I keep learning and sharing. I don’t have it down pat yet, but it’s a great future to live into.
  • I just read these to my husband and he told me he didn’t know some of these things either.  Amazing.

Would you be willing to share yourself with us too? Under the comments section, feel free to share something about yourself that others don’t know. Don’t use it to pitch – just share yourself authentically.

One step at a time, consider uncovering that which people may not know and see what starts to happen in your business and life. Note this does not mean telling us all your dirty laundry. It is just about being real. Find the balance that works for you.

We might call it the Authentic Experiment 🙂

Oh and speaking of authentic. Another reason I want you to practice coming out and be seen for who you are is because of my upcoming video contest where you could win $1000. So get your video camera ready and stay tuned. This will be easy. (Where’s that easy button when I need it?)
