Coming out of my cave : )
I kept getting visions of water before my trip to Minnesota for my retreat with my mastermind buddies –
my colleagues also in mission based businesses. I had plenty of that element
My flight ended up being grounded in Sydney and I was put up at an airport hotel until the next morning – the view of the runway from my hotel room – can you spot it?
I Asked for a room with a view : ) In my hotel room was pictures of water – and I knew that I was going to be in the flow and the sky to me represented unlimited potential and possibilities.
The mastermind I went to was all about Branding and Value. It was so much fun! We made time for play – you can see us paddle surfing below! We also had a mini exercise in running booth with just 2 hours to prepare.
I realised I needed to go with my own formula and that was just to go within.. and so the way I prepared for it was to go for a bubble bath – I spent the last 10 minutes writing up my sign and still had a blast
I didn’t realise that Minnesota is known as the land of 10,000 lakes. Thanks to my friend Barbara we got to see some the day I arrived!
Then – as a secret – my coach had planned for us to go paddle surfing I felt soo good being out in nature and just feeling like a water spider..
just cruising along with the breeze blowing. It was amazing. I had space to think. I felt so much more alive.
I am someone who’s really open to Signs and as the retreat went on I received more insights as to how I wanted to teach sales utilising the Elements
So keep an eye out for that if you’ve been wanting to coach with me for a while. I’ve got some unique experiences coming soon.
It was wonderful to be able to be in a space for ideas to percolate.
I was thrilled to see my baby and husband after 6 days away. It was a huge step for me – leaving my baby behind – my gut said Yes and so I followed through.
We’ve grown as a family since I did that and I am so grateful!
In the blog I share a video of my newest indulgence – my red hiking jacket : ) – and what that means for you : )
My red jacket and what it means to me
I’ve had my share of hibernating this winter. I didn’t send out any newsletters for a few weeks.. and I made peace with that.
I felt like if I forced myself to, I would be doing it out of a sense of obligation and I did Not want to be coming from that energy.
Here’s a video I shot on my walk in our local reserve
One of themes that came up in my client calls was about resistance.
When you Know certain things are good for you – yet you resist them.
A big one has actually been resisting Pleasure! Yes.. you heard me.. resisting Feeling Good!
Here’s a list of some of my clients items for what brings them joy:
- Painting their nails
- Going out in nature for a walk
- Enjoying a bubble bath
- Going to the beach
I found how much pleasure I got just from going to my local library and having the space to just walk down different isles and flick through different titles with no real outcome in mind.
I tucked away 10 books – and I just borrowed them just because they spoke to me.. not because I made a conscious effort to look for them.
Among some of the titles that I picked up were:
- Simple Living
- Divine Intuition
- Your Sacred Self
- Nigella Lawson – recipes
Just allowing myself a little space.. I got to know Me more.. how simple things actually bring me so much joy! I was ecstatic!
It was only after I borrowed the books did I notice a theme – about what I’m actually interested in right now.
I’ve certainly been a culprit – staying indoors when I know in my bones that everytime I go out – I would feel refreshed and energised.
So my challenge to you is to just do that thing you’ve been wanting to do for FUN!! Just do it!!
