so 7 chicks get into a hot tub… why personal development is profitable

I was in Santa Fe New Mexico this month for the Transformational Speaking Intensive with master trainer, Gail Larsen. It was a mind-altering experience that will inform my self-expression for years. More on that later.

On the last night of the workshop Gail; maestro fresh master coach Susan Hyatt; champion of soulful service Jennifer Louden; unabashedly feminine coach, Julie Daley; clairvoyant (fer real) Naturopath Dr. Diane Chung; the Muse you dream of, Dyana Valentine; and yours truly were hot tubbing in the heavenly hills, talking about…Twitter, cash flow, and cosmic consciousness, of course.

THE A-HA CONVO:

Dyana: I got all these new Twitter followers this week and, like, I’ve barely been on-line. Don’t know where they’re coming from.

Me: thinking to myself…hmmm…I sold lotsa Fire Starters Sessions, and got all these requests this week for one-on-one clients, even tho’ I just doubled the fee and haven’t been on-line in a week.

Dr. Diane: Whenever I do a workshop or retreat, my receptionist calls me to say, “Um, what’s going on? Because the phone is ringing off the hook with new patients.”

It’s the inner work that’s doing the work.
ooooo…ahhhh…hmmm….ya.

the hot tub cosmic profitably theory:

work more on yourself, and the business will work more for you.

dissolve your misconceptions of deserving, and cash flows.

it’s all energy, baby.

We neglected our families and our businesses for six days.
We moved energy. We pursued answers, we asked ourselves new questions.
We cried hard and laughed harder. We spoke little of our actual careers until we came out of the zone of inquiry and training.

TRY THIS:
Move the energy before you make a move for the results.

Want to write a killer chapter? Take a bath.
Want the check to arrive? Give some money away.
Want the love to come? Dance it out in your living room.

Want to slam down your to do list? Take the day off.

It’s not always a doing.
It’s a new seeing.
And people see you back.

Do you think being called “Too emotional” is an act of oppression? Maybe you should think about it.

Stop thinking and start feeling — a lot more. And start talking about how you feel — a lot more. And you know what will happen? You will start to be more aware of how you feel, more of the time — the tenderness, the rage, the genius, the sorrow, the Love. You will feel your power, and you will direct it into the world.

How to not give a shit (even though you really do) and be kind about it all.

Love from the inside outward. Some people will take offense to your healthy priorities. Others will take your loving example and love themselves even more.

Perpetually cleansing? That’s about right. The 80/20 rule of living your life and cleaning it up.

Deep living is dirty, sweaty, gorgeous work. We will accumulate things. But your Soul wants to be mobile, unencumbered — in touch with all the parts of your life.

All the things that softly kill me.

The hate. All the hate. It makes me fume and spin. The light. Oh the light! The light that is powerful enough to transmute hate into Love. “T’was blind, but now I see.” That kind of light.

Self Love and why we’re all effed up about it.

Celebrate yourself no matter what — even if they think you’re tacky, terrible, too much of this, too little of that. Make how you move through the world an homage to your beautiful, luminous, powerful, magnificent, righteous, sacred…self.

That same self who may fuck up tomorrow, but will still be made of LOVE. THAT Self. Love.

Thoroughness (a poem for devotion)

I have expressed from my longing and obstacles
the balm of thoroughness,
rare as rose oil,
nothing cures like devotion.
I stroke it on wounds and desires

Easing someone’s suffering…without suffering. Is it possible?

Do I have to feel your pain in order to help ease your pain?

And, if I guard myself against your suffering, am I less useful? If I want to detach from your pain, am I less loving? If I think, “I’m glad I’m not going through that”, am I cold hearted? If I’m grateful for my strength or good fortune in comparison to your so-called weakness or misfortune, does that make me…just secretly horrible?
