Everyone I talk to is in “transition” with their business.
There’s something new emerging. Or they are finally claiming that it’s their time to show up with their powerful message.
And they are frustrated because this type of growth work doesn’t happen in your average day in and around seeing clients, handling the administrivia of business, and living our lives.
What I know helps me is to get away. To go somewhere that’s all about YOU and getting clarity, opening your courage and finding the confidence to say say YES to what wants to emerge.
The trouble is that we try to tackle this with our left brain – let me figure it out and get into action.
In my 16 years of coaching… it’s never how it works when you are moving into something big. It’s an inside out process.
You have to know how to get clear, align your energy and your actions.
I call it Creative Alchemy.
This is what we will be doing in my upcoming Creative Retreat by-the-Sea.
On creative living… “Money helps, to be sure. But if money were the only thing people needed in order to live creative lives, then the mega-rich would be the most imaginative, generative, and original thinkers among us, and they simply are not. The essential ingredients for creativity remain exactly the same for everybody: courage, enchantment, permission, persistence, trust – and those elements are universally accessible. Which does not mean that creative living is always easy; it merely means that creative living is always possible.” Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic

How are you doing? I hope your week is going well. I know for me it’s been a bit of a tumultuous time. Not full blown upheavel but a rollercoaster of emotions – big ups and careening downs.
The outside influences of the last week of global atrocities, constant uncertainly in the world, being aware of conversations where people are feeling that the much of the world is starting to turn on our beautiful country, friends who are starting to fear international travel, whew, … add to it the full moon energy and a couple of planets in retrograde – wowsa!
In my personal space my son turned 16 last week. It’s definitely been a time of celebration of him moving into a new phase of independence AND I can’t help but notice a low level of sadness that took hold of me as my last child passes into this milestone. Being with the dualality of “I have more freedom” and “I’m not needed in the same way”. Ahhh… breathing through it.
Add to it an ongoing sinus infection that is really irritating me… I know that’s what sinus infections are all about in the emotional world – irritation. AND, I started working with an amazing acupuncturist and healer so I’m intending for things to shift.
All of this and business stuff too!
One bit of wisdom I am learning in my life journey is that there is always going to be “stuff” coming up. And nowadays the stuff comes fast and furious and we don’t have a lot of power over the stuff (circumstances, people, planets) happening around us.
