In a Palladian mansion nestled in the beautiful countryside in Somerset UK, we shared a meal and drink by a real live crackling fire.  We shared stories about life, marriage, kids and I felt like I was talking to someone who was like a Momma figure to me but also a best friend. Her warmth and presence drew me in.  We clicked.

Analesa Berg is not only an artist, singer and author, she’s also a cross cultural communications consultant turned international retreat host and a thought leader on Expansive Leadership. You can find out all about Analesa here at analesaberg.com

If you’ve ever wondered how to listen to your inner wisdom so you can lean into the direction of your wise woman be it in life or business then you’ll love this interview.

Analesa and I talked about the different ways in which your intuition and inner wisdom can speak to you.

  • How you can joyfully navigate unfamiliar territory or cross roads in your life when you know something’s “not working”
  • 18 minutes into the interview you can actually SEE Analesa’s artwork and a book she created just by following her leanings.
  • 30 minutes in:  Find out about an opportunity to join Analesa in Bali.
  • Stay right to the end to receive an energetic transmission when Analesa literally sings the interview to a close : )

Analesa and I would love to hear from you in the comments below:

How does your inner wise woman speak to you?

Is there something that’s not quite working which you know needs to change? If so, what is it. Be as specific as you can x Trust that voice/leaning/knowing x

Thank you for sharing your comments.

Much love

2013 – The Year of Truth

January 4th, 2013 | no comments

Happy New Year!!

Trusting you’ve had a great Holiday season and are looking forward to a beautiful year! Here’s our first Christmas together as a family and Aqeel with his glow in the dark bracelets on (it seems like he’s partying in his cot 😉

If you’ve noticed I’ve been extremely quiet over the last few weeks in December. I got myself to take a break! It’s crazy how much my baby boy is teaching me!  I thought I knew how I was going to balance having a newborn at home and still running my business over December but it didn’t quite work out that way.

I had scaled down my work a bit and still had my client calls and service conversations during the week. The first two weeks were fine – he would be fed and my husband would be with him or he would have a nap. When my baby was three weeks old, I would do the same thing; he would have a feed and be ready for his nap. But then, things changed. My baby Aqeel, cried out right at the half way mark of my conversations and this happened on three different occasions!

I finally heeded the signs – I got the message – I needed to take a break for the rest of December! It was embarrassing to have to excuse myself right in the middle of a conversation with clients ~ but I also knew I had to be kind to myself and allow myself to put my needs first and baby’s.

My biggest learning was that I hadn’t allowed myself to really check within to find out what I wanted. On speaking to my mentor and coach I admitted I would really like to take the rest of December off. I also tuned into my baby and knew that’s what he wanted me to do too  : )

I’ve got a video for you

– see if you can relate to voicing and asking for what you want : ) xx

Much Love,

What the Dolphins Taught me about Business – Lesson 4:

Your Truth

by Nadhira Razack

When you get a gut response that an experience really calls to you and you want to go ahead with something, sometimes explaining it to your loved ones or even a mentor can be challenging. It can be hard for them to see what you see.

When someone listens to you explaining something that came intuitively to you, they would be analysing it with their rational logical mind.

You need to remember that. The person listening to you is not accessing your intuition to see if the decision is a true/right decision for you.  They’re receiving the information and allowing their rational mind to come to terms with what you just told them.

I remember my husband and even my mentor thought I was making a rash decision by going to see the dolphins at the time that I did.  I got told things like: I didn’t have my priorities right and that I didn’t “need” the experience in order to experience a deeper connection to everything and experience unconditional love.

(That’s me as a mermaid at eight months pregnant – Kona, Hawaii – Day 2 of my dolphin and mermaid adventure)

I had explained that the dolphins were creatures that were just pure love because out in the ocean they’re beings that are just like us, without all the ‘stuff’ , ‘baggage’ that usually clouds us humans from seeing our light. I tried to explain in different ways why this experience of swimming with wild dolphins was calling me but it didn’t even make sense to me why I was going. I only really knew Afterwards. All I did was just lean into my intuition and just say Yes. And I continue to practice saying Yes no matter how scared I am.

No matter what my ‘reasons’ were for going to see the dolphins – it didn’t matter. My heart wanted what it wanted and I couldn’t justify to anyone why I wanted this experience for myself.

Lesson 4 and How to Apply it:

If the people in your life are not in agreement with a decision that is coming from your intuition, don’t give up or get upset. The only reason they can’t quite see what you see or feel what you feel is because they’re not accessing their own intuition to get to a YES in seeing that decision for you. They’re only able to rely on their logical mind to rationalise the outcome of the decision you’ve just made – so they may have fears for you and project it on to you.

Your job is to recognise and be aware when this happens so you can stay steady and hold true to your vision so you can bring about the manifestation of what it is you are seeking.

I truly believe you are responsible to your soul to experience your desires. No more denying them.. This is your Year! Share your desires with me on facebook or email me and let me know what’s on your mind.

So What if You are a Dreamer?

November 22nd, 2012 | no comments

I’ve been loving the weather in Melbourne this week : ) Spring is soo alive! I just snapped a photo of these beautiful jasmines blooming outside my front door. A beautiful sensual scent that ignites your senses as you walk in. I was soo happy to see them when they started to blossom as soon as the sun started to come out. I didn’t realise how much I’d missed them through the winter months : )

In last week’s newsletter I covered Lesson 1 from my swim with wild dolphins with Dana Richardson in Kona, Hawaii.

This week you’ll find Lesson 2. It explains what I went through internally before reaching out to Dana in the first place. In our society we can be often told to be cautious about who we share our ideas and desires with. To some extent I agree. There’s some people who tend to dampen every single idea you’ve ever had or tend to look at the worst that can happen if you executed XYZ.

Below is a lesson on the opposite. It’s about the Power of Sharing your Desires. It does have a place in bringing you what you most want quickly and efficiently : )

What the Dolphins Taught me about Business –

Lesson 2: The Power of Sharing your Desires

by Nadhira Razack

I had to really be allowing for Lesson 2 to come to me. Without judging or controlling.. like..was this really Lesson 2?

Here it is, just allowing it to come from Me to You. The experience of leaning into my desire and following through so I could at least get connected with Dana Mermaid meant that I had a chance to voice my desire.

You know what can happen sometimes? We’re so scared about our secret desires not coming to pass, that we don’t share it. We keep it hidden, keep it under wraps because we don’t want to feel ‘stupid’ . I know one of the judgements that I used to be really afraid of.. I didn’t want to be seen as a ‘dreamer’ – somehow I thought that would mean that I was a weak person, that I wasn’t grounded or ‘realistic’.

So, what if you were really a dreamer? How bad can that be? Dreamers are usually visionaries.. they see things as they could be rather than as they are. Isn’t that how all change takes place? You get a vision for how things could be.. and that spurs you on to take the steps to change your path or get you on the path to create that vision you get glimpses of.

Getting back to the importance of sharing your desires: I found myself saying out loud to my surprise, “I’d really love to go swimming with wild dolphins with Dana Mermaid”. I said this in front of a group of conscious business owners in Denver, Colorado in September when I flew there for a retreat. See photo I wrote it out and declared it to a group of women in a class I took called The Feminine Art of Manifesting. I posted it somewhere else on facebook so every time I shared my desire, it got stronger.

(Here’s myself and Hibah in Denver, Colorado) – flew here when I was 7 months pregnant to attend a retreat (again, my Truth was calling – I knew I needed to be there).

Desires get stronger as they are shared. There were other women in these circles who cheered me on as we were on the same path with really going for it in our lives.

Then I also experienced the opposite of being cheered on. When I shared with someone that I had this desire to want to swim with dolphins in Kona, Hawaii she mentioned that a lot of pregnant women can have fantasies about what they would like to experience. That maybe I could just go to Frankston beach (a suburb in Victoria) and go for a walk there and that might be all I need to feel connected to the ocean.

I could feel my body tense up..knowing that in this case my very fear was being validated. “What if this desire was just some crazy fantasy?”

” What if I am making this all up?” (Remember earlier, I was afraid of being judged for being a dreamer?) – In this experience I felt I was being judged. You’ll find people in your environment mirroring your fears back to you. The crazy thing is, people don’t even mean to put you off sometimes.. you attract the exact experience you require to grow through.

Thank goodness I was conscious at the time to be aware that, that’s what was happening. I knew that I had a fear around “What if I’m making this up” so when I received that comment, I was able to see it for what it was.. and let it go. To most people, it’s not ‘realistic’ to get on a plane at 8 months pregnant and fly to Kona, Hawaii for a 2 day experience, especially when you’re travelling from Australia – a 10+ hour journey.

And if you think about it, what has being “realistic” gotten you? Are you happy with what you created, being realistic?

Lesson 2:
Your desires grow stronger as they are shared. What are your ‘secret’ desires? The desires I’m referring to are the ones you’re too afraid to share because you’re afraid people will judge you for having such “unrealistic” visions of what you want to accomplish or experience. Or you’re busy thinking about what it makes of you to even be thinking that big. Eg. Feeling guilty that you even have such big visions for yourself.

How to apply Lesson 2:
If you’re feeling the call to go somewhere, whether it’s travel to a particular place or have an experience like creating your own venture or birth a cool creative project, then Share that desire with people you feel called to share it with. Keeping it inside is almost like telling the Universe you don’t believe it can happen and you don’t trust that it will come to pass.

That can certainly stop us eh? Thoughts of “Oh what if it doesn’t happen?”, then “people are going to think I’m ‘stupid’ for even thinkingI could do that”. “Other people are going to be watching me to see if I did create it and then I’m going to have all this pressure on me to make it happen.”

The beauty of sharing your desires is that you don’t know who is listening. The person you share it with, might have just the resource you required to help you get on the path.

What desires do you need to start sharing? Let’s build some energy around those desires!! Share them with me!! Share them on facebook. Go on.. xx : ).
