Spiritual Practice & Embodiment in Business

For me, relying too much on logic in business creates a point of diminishing returns.
Logic is not the only element to life - it’s important for sure - but our mental logic is limited to our current paradigm! And this is a major flaw of the logic-only way of entrepreneurship.
To me, spiritual practice & embodiment is what brings the HEAT - as in the life force energy to business.
Business is about being in the market place, assessing need, contributing your gifts, creating things, connection, vision, faith and confidence and a lot more than logic.
For me business is also about flowing in harmony with the energetic current. I do have a second line in my Human Design Profile (sacral generator 5/2) which means things must be harmonious and NATURAL for me.
It doesn’t mean things can never be uncomfortable, it just means that discomfort needs to be in alignment with creating more ease in the long run. So the discomfort is about detoxing from old ways of being...

Repairing Relational Trauma

At its core, repairing relational trauma as in complex and childhood trauma (including family dysfunction) requires intimacy. New experiences with intimacy and being seen in new and safe ways.
That’s messy business! 🥰
It FEELS messy and chaotic. It’s not something you can mindset your way into - or intellectualize or talk around.
Sure there’s some mindset involved - but the actual healing and renegotiation work is body stuff. Plain and simple.
The work I do with clients is about tapping into those intimacy and relational patterns at their core.
I work with super smart, ambitious, talented tender hearted people who have been able to figure ALOT of things out with their minds and mindset, and even some emotional work.
They’ve built lives they are proud of and thankful for and accomplish more than most - others wonder how they can do it all….
And yet?
They still have pockets of life that feel mysteriously challenging.
For example:

Trauma Patterns and our Physiology

As you age, working with trauma patterns becomes more and more important. Especially if you’re an ambitious, high performing person who wants to, and indeed IS doing BIG stuff in the world!
Why? 😮
For most of us, our bodies move into trauma patterns unconsciously when we are young, adapting to both big and little stressors.
These stressors, if not dealt with properly, create changes in our cellular function, nervous system and DNA - but young bodies are naturally faster at keeping up with the oxidative stress.
But as we move into adulthood and beyond, The physical energy required to push the patterns away or avoid them takes an increasing toll on your cells and biological functions, as well as your executive functioning.
Meaning your body needs more and more energy to do the same things, and the pushing and avoiding becomes less and less available - and can show up in ways you wouldn’t expect (including chronic illness, brain fog, brain inflammation and more)...

Life is Always Calling us Forward

✍🏾Struggle. Talent. Art. Performance. Trauma.
Working with high performers who are talented, gifted and skillful - helping them on their healing journey - PLUS my own fascination with work and what it means for us as humans (hello Generator 5/2 Human Design) always has me thinking about these things.
The pain of life and its relationship to our work.
The age-old idea seems to be true that most of our gifts emerge initially from a place of pain or need. This is why I believe we adore superheroes - mostly mere mortals whose powers were born through tragedy or pain.
What I am particularly interested as a healing and alignment coach to excellent people who love to excel, contribute and succeed - people who feel CALLED to a certain work in the world - is how we can evolve our relationship to the work we do.
Acknowledging that much of the birth of talents and gifts happened in the dark places.
Because what I see happen over and over is that the gift saves us when it’s...

Healing from Trauma is Rebirth

Healing from trauma is rebirth.
Of soul and body.
It’s coming home.
It’s listening to the truth - that comes from inside your cells and DNA.
It is a deep surrender and letting go of what once allowed you to survive and now causes you hindrance and pain and trauma re-enactment.
It’s a deep breath of alignment into your sacred geometry.
It’s the revelation your nervous system experiences of the felt-sense that “it’s over, and I’m alive”
It is reclaiming your place in the world, and realizing you belong and indeed have a purpose within it - a contribution.
It’s your altar of letting go of the projections of fear and shame of your family tree, and stand in who you actually are.
It is your heroes journey - your individualized journey that only you can travel - though trustworthy guides lift you up along the way and share themselves with you.
And there are seasons of this rebirth, you dive into some deep patterns...

Are our Patterns really Mental?

Most of our patterns are not mental 🎤
This is especially true with patterns that are frustrating, confusing, chaotic, painful or difficult for you to change (ahem… ♥️t r a u m a)
There are mental COMPONENTS to patterns.
And indeed it helps to conceptualize them sometimes or to change our thinking about the pattern itself.
For example - if you have a pattern which you believe cannot change, it will help to slowly shift your idea to the possibility that it might or could potentially change.
But for the most part, our patterns live inside us in ways that are initially beyond our conscious control until we can get into the body to initiate an opening.
That’s why when you become aware of something it doesn’t immediately change.
Because there are physiological & biological (physical) as well as spiritual components to the patterns we carry with us - both good and bad.
When you’re wanting to change a pattern there are a couple things to look at:

I've Been Thinking about Hard Work...

Been thinking about hard work.
I believe in hard work, there’s nothing wrong with it.
I actually kind of like it.
Actually I really like it.
I like producing things and making things.
It feels good to produce and I don’t believe that is inherently wrong at all.
I also believe in ease and flow.

I also believe in ease and flow.
I don’t think these things are mutually exclusive.
I think hard work does build character, i think it pulls things out of us, and I think it is a form of service to the global community and our greater purpose. I especially love doing challenging work in collaboration - like screenwriting for example - hashing out details of a story with another writer and...

[PODCAST EPISODE 70] - EASE, FLOW & HARD WORK

This week’s podcast episode is about the seeming contradiction between the “ease and flow” paradigm and the “hard work” paradigm.

 

In the online and personal development space these two “camps” seem to be miles away from each other. In reality, I believe they are more closely related than they seem.


In this episode,  I share how I reconcile these two paradigms that seem to contradict each other. I also talk about how it all connects to your trauma healing and alignment journey as a high performer, entrepreneur and/or leader.

[PODCAST EPISODE 69] - ACCEPTING THE IMPACT OF CHILDHOOD TRAUMA

Accepting the Impact of Childhood Trauma

Accepting the impact of trauma is the most important step in the healing journey:

 

What Does it mean to accept the impact of trauma?
To become aware of and address the longstanding physical, emotional and mental effects of traumatic experiences. To make the journey back into the body and begin the process of discharging chronic stress so the body can move itself into a state of repair and regeneration.

 

I have worked with A LOT of high performers. And one thing I have noticed is that accepting the impact of trauma is VERY challenging. I experienced this myself early in my healing journey. There’s a protective denial that unconsciously forms around the pain of the past. 

 

And we unconsciously look away from these painful, shocking or terrorizing experiences that have happened to us. This is partly because this deep understanding of trauma and what it actually IS is very new - it’s very cutting edge. And so...
