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.

The Spiritual Evolution of Solo-preneurs

The two biggest things that get in the way of both the inner peace and the growth of an entrepreneur are fear and self-doubt.

Now there are many ways to deal with fear and self-doubt and generally I use energetic tools such as those in my Life Transformation Tools program to help me and my clients get out of our own way.

Today I want to talk about this on other levels as well.  It is no secret that there is a shift happening on our planet now — a change in consciousness. It is time to raise our vibration. But if we are in fear of moving forward with our business or doubting ourselves and our expertise, then we are holding our vibration down and there is resistance.

I know it is hard to trust when often times it feels like chaos is all around us. Yet if we do not trust ourselves, our intuition, our brilliance and the Universe, then we go nowhere.

So what if you looked at your business as a playground for your spiritual evolution?faith

Actually I have come to believe that it is. Everything that we create in our lives is an opportunity for us to learn and move forward on our spiritual journeys — and being peaceful is part of our spiritual journey.  (I am not referring to religion here, but a more global spirituality that is common for all of us regardless of individual religious beliefs).

So if you try something new in your business and it takes off like a rocket, you learn how to deal with it both from a business systems perspective as well as from whatever spiritual lessons you needed to learn (perhaps how others relate to you and you relate to others’ from this place).

If you send out a new promotion and there is little or no response, you learn things both from a spiritual  and a marketing viewpoint. That’s not to say you won’t be disappointed or perhaps obsess a bit about what you did wrong (ugh!).

But if that disappointment is disproportionately strong or you can’t let go, then it is a sign there are old patterns and memories to release and this thing that we called “failure” is actually perfect because it triggered something we needed to release for our spiritual evolution that will bring us to a place of peace. I experienced this firsthand recently.

Sometimes we don’t know what the lesson is or what there is to do. That is the time to get quiet … to be curious and allow the answers to show themselves or to get support from a spiritual business coach or healer in letting go of whatever is in our way.

As we move forward let’s  look for the gem in each situation that allows us to evolve spiritually. I know sometimes,  it can be difficult and we may want to scream and that’s okay too. But as we evolve,  I believe our businesses will  grow in new ways or get re-designed –such that they fit like a glove for our new way of being.  And from this place ,  I can only think that  “success” will be a given.

I welcome your comments.

The Peaceful Entrepreneur Project is born

peacefu entrepreneurI have been posting albeit, somewhat irregularly about the Peaceful Entrepreneur. Well the time has come for me to write more regularly on this all important topic and I’ve decided to create a Peaceful Entrepreneur Project. I invite you to follow my posts and interact with me on it as your opinions and thoughts on this subject matter very much to me.

Many of you participated in my Peaceful Entrepreneur Survey and told me what was in the way of being peaceful for you and how that affected your business.

This project is about going to the next level for all of us. I have some ideas and tools that help me with being more peaceful as an entrepreneur such as The One Minute Meditation and Life Transformation Tools and aligning with your Big Yes program and I have a whole lot more tricks up my sleeve that I will share. But I will be the first to admit that don’t have this whole peaceful thing mastered. Egad — it’s true.

And so I have decided to make it a project. I tend to make myself a guinea pig, do research and try out various tools and techniques and then share what works with my clients anyway. I will share with you things that I find that work for me and my business and those that don’t and I will also talk about my perception of how these things affect both the peace I feel related to my business as well as the actual impact this has on business – i.e. results.

Why should I care about this? Quite frankly, I don’t think it is worth having a business if we cannot be peaceful with where we are in it more often than not. Stress kills and that’s a fact. At the same time I don’t want fear to stop you or me from taking on bigger projects and impacting more people. This is not about staying in your comfort zone.

I want for us to stop putting pressure on ourselves to do things that don’t feel good in our body. I want all of us to be confident in what we bring to the world, okay with our failures and our wins and everything in between. I want entrepreneurs to make a big impact in the world that aligns with our soul but in a way that works with our soul. Most of us don’t play nearly as big as we could.

Does this resonate with you?

I am not talking about a business that is void of ups and downs, joy and sadness or excitement and disappointment. These are all part of being human and as entrepreneurs we are very human. I am talking about being being in a place of acceptance about where we are, knowing that what we are feeling is always temporary. And when we can be in the now while working towards our goals and dreams, there are less ups and downs and more peace and joy.

I plan to talk about the whole gamut of things that affect us as entrepreneurs from spirituality to marketing and from technology systems to support teams and everything in between. It is about the inner work AND the outer work (i.e. action steps) . This blog will evolve naturally so it may end up looking entirely different than what I said today but my intent is that it be relevant and helpful to us all.

So here goes . . .

Join me in this interesting and hopefully, fruitful journey for us all.

Why Lead from Stillness?

It is important to lead your life… your business… your career from a place of stillness.

What is stillness?

It is the practice of being in the moment rather than in the past or future. It is a place inside of you where inner peace can be found.

It is from this place that intuition can be heard more clearly and from which brilliant ideas are born. Creativity gets unleashed from this quiet place where there are no interfering thoughts. Connections to higher guidance are remembered and strengthened when […]

These days all you have to do is open your email to read someone’s opinion of what you MUST do to succeed in these economically challenging and chaotic times. Many of these letters are really well-written and will convince you that this expert has all the answers to your problems. But then someone else has another answer and insists that is the correct one. Who are you to believe?

Well, that depends 🙂 Those of you who have taken my Life Transformation Tools and More program know that I do not believe there is any one answer, tool, solution that fits all people at all times. It will depend on what is in alignment with you, your values, your beliefs, your situation and a bunch of other factors that could come into play.

That is why it is important to lead your life… your business… your career from a place of stillness.

What is stillness?

It is the practice of being in the moment rather than in the past or future. It is a place inside of you where inner peace can be found.

It is from this place that intuition can be heard more clearly and from which brilliant ideas are born. Creativity gets unleashed from this quiet place where there are no interfering thoughts. Connections to higher guidance are remembered and strengthened when we are not busy trying to figure things out.

This sense of peacefulness, knowing and connection can and does lead to more happiness and contentment with life in this very moment – rather than being hinged upon some future event.

You may be wondering what this has to do with leading your career or business. Perhaps it seems a bit contradictory to all the information out there about how important it is to act with speed. You may find yourself thinking: “For goodness sake, in these crazy times, who as time to be still?” You may even feel like being still is lazy.

But really nothing could be farther from the truth. Please understand, I am not suggesting that you sit on the couch all day and eat bon bons or that you sit on a mountain top and contemplate the meaning of life all day.

It doesn’t have to take long to quiet the mind. Actually, I have proven that it can be done in just one minute. And if you are like other human beings, you probably waste more than a minute in every hour during the day. You can learn the One Minute Meditation(TM) when you participate in the 30 day Stillness Experiment. It’s 100% f’ree.

But let’s come back to the bigger question at hand. What is the value of stillness in running your business or career?

When you ask for clarity and then get quiet and relaxed, you will be able to hear the answer. It may not come all at one time. It may feel like gentle nudging to do this thing here and then this other piece over there that may seem unrelated and then another, and then at some point in time, when you are totally relaxed, your answer… the one that brings these pieces together and totally resonates with your soul… comes up and whispers in your ear (or in an email or someone else’s speaking or a million other ways). And it feels so right, you just want to shout “YES” this is what I am to do next.

And when you know your “BIG YES”, acting from that place is joyful and easy and fun.

That doesn’t mean that your gremlins won’t show up later to doubt that you can do this. But you can face and clear those things with tools such as those I provide to my Life Transformation Tools members.

That is why leading from stillness is a process…

It must be learned because everything we have been taught is contradictory to that.

There are many factors that contribute to being still and leading from stillness. More than I can put into an article.

And it takes support because it is so contradictory to what we have been taught all our life and what the media and experts tell you everyday.

That is why I am creating some programs to support you in leading your life… your career… your business from a place of stillness.

Stay tuned.

In the meantime, take a moment to do the One Minute Meditation(TM) now. (If you are not familiar with the One Minute Meditation, you can learn it by signing up for the f’ree 30 day Stillness Experiment)
