The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the women determined to restore the divine to where it has been pummeled out of memory,

where denial is so calcified that our beauty is last to be seen in economics and science and law
laws that are too small for what our bodies know to be true.

The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the dark, the spacious, the sweet, the jaded, the women who live as certain as light rays,  
who renovate broken boardrooms and policies with justified anger and overwhelming Love—
Love of inclusion, of ecology, of bone solid Truth—Love of Love.

For those who do not have a Yes, I will share mine.  
Because, I can be radiant with my power—from the erotic to the cash.
I can fight my pain in public, choose my lovers, work my genius into shelter and endless comforts.
I am free to heal and so I must braid myself to
those whose bodies are stolen, where mine has always been free;
whose ideals cannot even be whispered, where mine have been invited…
The most powerful possible Yes to these women.

For the women who use privilege like a drug, for the ones so wounded that they wound,
for the ones who squander their influence because it’s too much work to come down and meet the pain of the world…
we need to gift the most powerful possible Yes to these women

ALL WOMEN

The elders, the curanderas, the suffragettes, the midwives of children and art and culture,
the ones we call slut and Saint and CEO—
Sisters
all with a voice to say:

We will fund it ourselves.
It’s better when it’s beautiful.
No means no.
I see you, and I love what I see.
Come, rest.
and then… Let’s dance.
We’re in this together,

all with a voice to say:
Feelings are facts.
Trust is a milestone
And Compassion is a strategy.

And that is the most powerful possible Yes a woman can give.

 


 

Women! Share it with the women! Press forward

the goddess of grief: getting to the other side. (and there is always another side.)

Grief is one of the most powerful Goddesses. She swallows your agony and lets it tear her apart. Beautiful birds fly from her belly—each one an insight into life and your power. Grief brings the whole flock to your window, and she waits and waits to reveal universal truths to you. She goes to the depths with you. She rises with you.

Grief won’t rest until you swallow the medicine she made especially for you, and tell her your story of death… and life.

HOW TO ABSORB THE MEDICINE OF GRIEF

  1. Grief messes with your focus. When she’s tap-tap-tapping on the door of your consciousness, it becomes difficult to concentrate. You’re not sure what the priorities are, not sure where to put your attention, and when you do put it somewhere, it slips off easily. Time does not feel fresh, it feels a bit stale. Launching new things feels awkward, subtly inappropriate.
  2. Give your self space to meander, aimlessly. Aim less. Under achieve. Be confused. As Nietzsche said, “You must have confusion in your heart to give birth to stars.” You are giving birth to a new reality. It takes tremendous resources. Healing hurts before it feels right.
  3. Grief is patient. Grief may operate on a time-release capsule system. She’ll let you be busy and distracted for a long period of time before she descends. She respects survival mechanisms and the necessities. So go ahead and throw yourself into work or hobbies. Just know that…
  4. Denying grief her power squelches your vitality. You can dream and laugh and march on, but until you swallow the bitter tea that Grief has brewed, things won’t be as vibrant or grounded as they could be. And that’s half dead.
  5. Recognize where you are numb. Notice the memories that ouch the most. This is the beginning of response-ability.
  6. Grief crystallizes in your body. The medicine will get stuck in your muscle memory and joints. It needs to circulate and be digested. You have to dance grief to the surface. Stomp. Rock. Stretch. Move without your intellect getting in the way. Keep moving.
  7. Grief thinks scars make for great tattoos. Accept that you’ll never be the same. Trauma marks you. Embrace how much more dimensional you’ve become.
  8. Someone just reminded me, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” (Maya Angelou). Grief needs to hear your story told. Speak it out to a sacred listener. Be witnessed. And then…
  9. Tell a new story—one that includes the description of how you healed.

All Love,

B-School countdown + a surprise!

Affiliates.MarieForleo.BSchool2019_Email.5.Header

“Decision fatigue” is a real phenomenon, especially when it comes to leadership or business. If you’re constantly questioning whether any decisions are the “right” ones, here’s a suggestion: Does it feel light, or does it feel heavy? The truth of feelings are mightier than strategery or logic. 

It’s so simple it’s brilliantly clarifying: Does it feel light, or does it feel heavy?

It works for next moves, and money management, and dinner reservations. It works for deciding where to give your Love, your devotion, your creativity, your time. “Light” is a sense of expansion. You feel slightly or immensely relieved. Tingly with potential. You might hear the cosmos whispering, “Go on, I’ve got ya.

The “light” choice, isn’t necessarily the easy choice. It may be slightly scary, require courage, sweat, and a deep breath. The light choice may look crazy to everyone else. But what’s the alternative? Heavy. Constricted self-expression. It’s anything but good times, or sexy, or… ahhh… light.

You already know whether Marie Forleo’s B-School is light for you this year. The doors to B-School close in 48 hours.

Light from our NEWEST B-Schoolers!

“I registered yesterday and followed along by starting Start the Right Business. I’m thru the intro and lessons 1-3 and wow!! Already I’ve taken my business of 5 years to a clarity I didn’t think possible. Also realized that in not having that focus and clarity is no wonder I often feel uncertain about what actions to take, what to write about, pricing, who best to serve etc. Went to bed feeling aligned and so happy with my choice knowing I’m exactly in the right place. Up early today and excited to dive back in!” — Jenn Lenz

“I still feel like it’s just all too good to be true. I am so excited about: possibility, those bonuses ,the courage to say yes, learning, growing, sharing. Still happy dancing up in here.” — Joanna Young

“I am so looking forward to this!!! I’ve been waiting for things to “change” in my world but decided to stop waiting and start making change.” — Lesley Sprague

“So excited to have this all come together in one superbly perfect package! It’s time to step up and refine my dream & grow my biz … full of my authentic heart and soul…. with a smart business edge.” — Sonya Tittle
