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.

the euphoria of admitting when it sucks

I hear this time and again, “If I just hang in longer… Maybe she’ll come up to speed. It might sell in the summer. If I dig deeper, I’ll learn to love Excel.” Fess up – it ain’t workin’. You’re smart to see it. You’re brilliant if you move on…

Infidelity, sisterhood, and self-respect either way. #Lemonade and Love.

My feelings about infidelity, monogamy and commitment — and how they’ve evolved over time. How I define Divine Fidelity a la David Deida’s 3 stages of relationships. And my deep respect for Beyonce’s art and every woman’s choice of devotion.

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.

Comparison is a killer. Cut it out.

Bless the people you feel envious of. The rich, skinny, in-love, confident, powerful people. Quicker than you can say “I wish I had that…,” say to yourself, or even better, to them, “Way to go…you look great…I admire you.” With envy out of the way, you’ll have more space for your own greatness to step forward.

You are worthy of your desires

To say no.

To say yes.

To have your deepest needs met.

To be seen.

To be loved for what is seen.

Feminism is consciousness. Lessons for my imaginary daughter & women — including Kim Kardashian.

All communication begins with intention. A loving word, or flipping someone the bird. A treatise on feminism, or an ageist tweet out to your peers.

Use your wings

You’re cosmic. You are winged with light. And that means you have the power to get where you want to go, to see what’s really going on in a situation, to make excellent decisions.

Recovering from self-help exhaustion? Join the club.

My friend Jess Ortner and I had a great conversation about the downer of always trying to be up. Perfect for her podcast called Adventures in Happiness. This is one of my favourite, truly useful conversations for being on the so-called “Path”.
