[Tele-Jam Recording] The 3 Principles & Awakening The Inner CEO

The 3 Principles & Awakening The Inner CEO

[CALL TRANSCRIPT]

Caroline: And I’m recording here so we’re all set. Perfect. So like I said, you don’t need to take notes. I’m gonna suggest that you don’t multitask so that you can get the most of our time together. So make sure that you close your phones and you close Facebook, close your e-mails and just be present. Pay attention to what’s going on in your mind because sometimes, we can have all the distractions closed but there’s so much going on in our minds; so much noise, that we’re not really present and we’re not really hearing.

Just take a moment right now and check in with yourself and pay attention to how much noise there is in your head. Paying attention, being aware can bring us back to presence. It’s about being conscious of our excessive thinking. Sometimes, it’s enough to bring us back in the present moment…

So, let’s all take a really deep breath and start our gathering by going inward and arriving to the present moment.

I find that it’s really helpful to breathe deeply and to connect with the breath. A good indication that we’re stuck in our head (that we have too much noise up there) is that sometimes our breathing becomes really shallow. We breathe from the upper chest and we forget to breathe really deeply… Sometimes all it takes is one deep breath to reconnect to our core, to our center, to our Inner Genius (what I also call our Inner CEO).

Let’s just start by breathing deeply. Inhaling from the belly; allowing the belly to fill up with breath and really enjoying long inhale and extra long exhale. Just tapping into the breath; focusing on the breath.

Give yourself this time -this gift- to be fully present on this call.

I thank you for taking time to show up to spend time with me in this safe and sacred space, where we’re gonna look at how you can create from the inside out… how you can create from your Inner Genius (from your Inner CEO) to create a business and a life you love. That applies to career women as well. So whenever I talk about building a business, just need to change that for building a career or having a flourishing career because ultimately, learning to quiet the mind and allowing yourself to get better -honing your skills and becoming what I call Intuitive Leader- can really serve you in every area of your life. Not just in building a successful business, a successful career: this can­ impact all of your life. The more you become present with yourself, the more you allow yourself to tap into your Inner Genius -your inner guidance- the more present and conscious you are, the easier it gets to create in your life and the less effort you need to expand.

The more in the flow you naturally fall into and the more well-being you feel.

As we learn to really be in touch with our own innate well-being, as we allow our Inner Genius to come through us and to be fully expressed, it impacts everything. It will impact your community, your friends, your family, your team, your co-workers; it’s pretty damn powerful.

I’d like to invite you to go back to the breath throughout the exercise and whenever you feel that you’re going back into your mind and getting caught up into some thinking, just be aware and get back to your breathing, get in touch with your belly, with your core. Just feel yourself becoming more grounded and present to the moment.

Today, we are talking about how tapping into the Inner CEO can create a thriving business.

Before I get into the exercise that I wanted to do with you today, I want to share with you a story that will illustrate the power of creating from the inside out.

If some of you are new to me and to my work or if you’ve been reading my e-mails recently, you know that I’ve been doing this amazing training where I’m learning about The 3 Principles. And so, I was in London last week for ten days and I was doing this incredible intensive with my 3 Principles teachers and I got the chance to be coached by a Supercoach… (Laughter) Supercoaches don’t really have capes and I don’t know how my teacher came up with that name but what we do is Transformative Coaching® which is a coaching conversation based on the understanding of (Syd Banks) The Three Principles.

So I got the opportunity to do some coaching in front of the group and I was telling my coach that lately I’ve been focusing on re-launching The Intuitive Leadership Academy & Mastermind so again if you’ve been following me for a while and you got my e-mails and you know that this is a program that I’ve been pouring my heart and soul into.

If you haven’t checked it out yet, check it out after the call, not now. (Laughter) It’s intuitive-leadership-academy.com and registration is still open until Saturday.

I was telling my coach that I’ve been focusing on launching the Academy and I’ve been working more than usual, putting all my attention & energy into the launch of my program… And as I was telling my coach this I got this image… (I could see it with my mind’s eye), I saw myself as a small version of myself putting ALL my focus, ALL my attention, ALL my thinking into creating that program and it looked like a “small me” focusing on this specific time time frame to really make the best and the most out of this launch for the program. But it struck me that the image that I saw of myself with was a “small me”, like literally; I probably had two inches in this vision of me. And it struck me! It’s was so weird.

Then in this (3 Principles) conversation with my coach, he was trying to have me look into a fresh new direction (away from the small, narrow vision), into a fresh new place where I could get a bigger perspective of my business, of my life, on other projects that I wanted to born into the world.

Then, somehow, just like that (!), I saw a BIGGER version of me -more expansive- and I could see farther in the future. That bigger version of me felt more creative and more expansive and more intuitive. But it still didn’t feel like the highest version of me; it didn’t feel like my HIGHEST potential.

So here I am, having a conversation with my coach in front of seventy people in London (!), and the conversation is about creating from the space where insights can happen (a conversation based in the understanding of The Three Principles) and I’m having a vision of a “little me” that’s working really hard on the launch of The Intuitive Leadership academy & Mastermind, and then there’s the “bigger me” who’s about one foot in height in my mind’s eye and she can see a little bit of a bigger of perspective… maybe a 6 months, maybe a year, she’s a little bit more expansive.

And then I’m thinking : “Really? Is this all there is?” I know there’s more than this; I KNOW it because it’s what I teach my clients!”

At that point I don’t even know what my coach said, but then it really hit me, somehow,without TRYING to figure it out… I saw the “Bigger me”, the highest version of me; the full potential Me… the Inner Genius Me… she was so BIG. And she was just on the edge of the unknown… the HUGE unknown. Pure Potentiality. The energy of Divine Creation (Shakti). And that felt so amazing… What a mind blowing insight!

Now, a few years back, I might have had a completely different experience because the unknown was scary to me and the unknown was uncomfortable.

But at THAT moment in London, I saw the three versions of me; the “smaller me”, the “bigger more expansive me”, and then the REALLY “Full Potential Me” and it felt so much more expansive, it felt like the unknown was my best friend. That in the unknown was ALL the answers that I was looking for even though I didn’t even know what exactly that was.

I felt on the edge of the world of form as we know it, on the edge of my business as I know it, the way that I coach as I know it, my teaching as I know it and that looked like a bright sunny world of form; very concrete, very “I know it!”.

And then there was this “bigger part of me” that was completely at ease and at one with the unknown. It was expansive and big and huge and full of potential and in that moment, it really hit me that when we create from that space of the unknown, what we create will blow our minds because it’s gonna go beyond what you could ever think of, beyond the limitations of the mind because it’s going beyond the fears, beyond any perceived limitations that we create or construct in our everyday lives.

So that was a very powerful experience to me. I keep telling my (Three Principles) teachers and my coaches that there’s before London and after London. (Laughter)

Now I’m back in Montreal (as some of you know I live in Montreal in Quebec, Canada) so I’m back home and still working on my launch because registration is closing in a couple of days and I have still e-mails to write and I’m on the phone with some of the potential clients… And I keep going back and forth between the “little me”, who’s giving the best to this launch and to my business, and the “Big expansive me” who’s best friend with the unknown. It’s pretty freeing I tell ya’!

I’m sharing this story because I want to illustrate a concrete example of what it means to tap the Inner CEO to create. It’s truly is tapping into our full potential, feeling the bigger possibilities for ourselves and our lives EVEN THOUGH we might now know what it’s going to look like. It’s trusting divine intelligence that flows through us at every moment.

I want to highlight that the Inner CEO is within each and everyone one of us.

I want to remind you that you too have the ALL the answers; that you can be your own expert, that you can access your own inner guidance.

And yes, it helps to work with a coach. I work with my own coaches as well! It helps to be in this (Three Principles) conversation with others but ultimately, you are the one that is truly in charge and that truly knows what’s the best for you. Not some “expert”.

Divine Intelligence is always there.

The only thing keeping you from the connection is the noise in your head. That’s why sometimes it’s hard to decipher intuition.

What’s the difference between intuition and fear?

People ask me this all the time.

There’s a HUUUGE difference. Intuition is neutral, clear, pure. There’s an undeniable and CLEAR inner knowing.

Intuition IS NOT fear based.

Once you start to really decipher the difference between intuition and fear it’ll get easier to make decisions in your business and in your life. And those decisions and actions you take from your inner wisdom will feel more aligned with YOU; with the authentic you and with what you really want.

The idea of doing this tele-jam today is because I’ve become really intolerant of teachers so-called experts that claim they can give you all the answers and the “proven the systems”. They claim that they can give you the step by steps blueprint, the trademarked process that will ENSURE your success.

I’ve become really intolerant of this because I’ve seen that actually it’s not 100% true and it doesn’t work 100% of the time.

I see very little results in terms of really creating fantastic results and success when we copy other people’s systems.

Yet, some people will do well with these systems and templates and these step-by-step plans. Some people will have results but ultimately, you won’t really get the most of it unless you’re allowing your Inner Genius to shine through and to shine the light; to guide you to create your own path and to express your own unique voice.

Because when you take on other people’s process, other people’s templates and “proven” systems… what starts to happen is that people become copycats and it doesn’t sound genuine and it doesn’t sound good. Your clients can feel it and everyone can see it.

You can feel it too. You can feel that it’s out of alignment with you. It comes out of your mouth that you blurt out this script you learned that some expert gave you and it just feels completely inauthentic. And it’s not getting you the promised results now is it?

The world doesn’t need more copycats. You have access to your own creative genius, use it!

So what I’m proposing is that we look at a brand new way to create a business, a career, a life; that we get comfortable with the unknown which ultimately IS the space where something brand new can emerge, for something FRESH and UNIQUE to come through us; to be expressed. YOUR OWN UNIQUE creation in alignment with your Inner Genius my friend.

Creating from the unknown is not only beautiful and delicious, but it also creates more miracles than what you could ever imagine.

So the key here is to just give it a chance. Look into that direction long enough, play with it. Really give your inner wisdom a voice and give her a chance to express yourself. I’m just saying that because sometimes we beat ourselves up when we’re not successful RIGHT AWAY and then we get all in up our heads with our (crazy) thinking and we’re beating ourselves up more and then again, there’s no inner wisdom there.

It’s always easier for you to really integrate all of this, to see if it makes sense to you if you do the exercise yourself. So if you’re up for it, I’d like to take you to an intuitive guided exercises -a visualization- where you’re gonna be able to see this for yourself but before I do that I just wanna check with you to make sure that everything makes sense that you don’t have questions or comments and to talk to me, all you have to do is to press 5* on your keypad and that’s gonna raise your hand and we can talk.

These calls are for you and I’m here to really help you in any way I can.

Joanna: Hi Caroline, this is Joanna!

Caroline: Hi Joanna!

Joanna: Hi. I wanna say thank you because I’ve never heard anyone mention what you have mentioned and it’s so clear to me like what you said about people are like selling these “proven” programs and I agree with you that it’s such a personal journey and you won’t know what’s gonna happen until it’s there; it’s like it starts opening up. It’s not that you can know what’s gonna happen exactly or if you do, it’s not your purpose likely because it’s something you’re making up based on other people’s experience and not based on your experience and who you are. So, I just wanna say thank you because I totally agree with that. I think it’s a very personal journey and I think people, you know that work you’re doing is great, it’s helping people finding that in themselves instead of copying some template that someone else is giving. So I think that’s absolutely and I just wanna say thank you very much.

Caroline: Oh, thank you. Let me ask you before I let you go. Do you currently have a business?

Joanna: I’m a veterinarian by training, I used to teach at a university and I left my work last year. Now, I’m still putting the pieces together and I’m kind of in the unknown… but I wanna help people express who they are and following their purpose. I think there is a purpose and there is something that we already have that aligns somehow if we are allowing it to unfold and allowing to flow… it’s more to me about clearing the way then trying to build anything because to me, it’s already there somewhere and if we allow it to come through it will be more phenomenal than we could ever imagine. I’m a teacher by nature so I wanna teach people and inspire them to live their lives like what you said, based on who they are and knowing that’s plenty, that that’s more than enough. Thank you so much. I’m really happy that I’m here on the call.

Caroline: That’s fantastic! I really love hearing how you wanna serve people. You’re absolutely right that it’s already there.

Joanna: Thank you. Bye!

[GUIDED VISUALIZATION]

I’d like to invite you all to sit comfortably. If you can, put both feet on the ground. You can also turn the palms of your hands upward. I think it’s just beautiful receptive gesture.

Let’s get back into our breathing; breathing deeply from the belly and on the exhale, relaxing your shoulders. Deep long inhale and deep long exhale. On the exhale, you’re releasing any stress, any thought that’s bugging you. Releasing the day, releasing the week. You can also imagine that your forehead is relaxing, your jaw, your face, your shoulders, your neck and really long inhale & exhale.

I’d like to invite you to follow the breath and bring your attention, your consciousness inside yourself: just follow the breathe. This helps to get centered and it helps quiet the mind; just naturally, no effort. Not trying to quiet the mind … allowing the thoughts to float away because the exploration we’re gonna do together is not an exploration of the mind. We’re not gonna try to make things happen, we’re not gonna try to get answers. We are going allow it to come forth.

Be mindful and aware, but not analytical and not judgmental of what will come forth. Especially because intuition sometimes loves to show us symbols or words or colors or images that may seem weird or funny, but this is how intuition likes to speak.

Rule of thumb: the weirder the information you get, the better because then you know you’re not making it up. When something that shows up for you and you’re thinking, “Well, that’s weird.” then you know that often it’s intuition:)

So, don’t try to make anything happen.

Imagine that you can bring your consciousness, your attention deep within yourself. For different people it will look like a different place but what I want you to look for is a space within yourself that feels like “beingness”, like centeredness; calm, quiet, a deep inner knowing.

Be curious with whatever shows up for you; don’t force it or try to make anything happen.

I want you to think about one specific question you’d like to have an answer to and because the theme of this call is “Unleashing the Inner CEO to create from the inside out, whether it’s more clients in your business, more clarity, maybe you wanna know what’s the next step for you… ?

Just hold this question in this space and then be open to what shows up.

And feel how it feels. Trust the first thing that comes; it could be a word, it could be a feeling. What you need to know right now in your life, in your business, so that you can create from the inside out?

Tap into the wisest part of yourself; your wise Inner CEO, that part of you that has ALL the answers: what’s coming up for you when you ask your question?

You might be getting a feeling, some people get images, symbols, or words. For me, when I tap into the wisdom of my inner CEO, I’m getting a quiet strength, an inner knowing, an inner confidence and also a sense of safety that everything is gonna be fine, everything is gonna be more than fine; all is well. And again for me, it’s now a feeling and a certainty that the unknown is my friend.

So just staying here for a moment. Increase the good feeling that you’re feeling as you’re embodying that wise Inner CEO. You are that person that has the answers. You are that person that can create from the inside out; that can create great things when you allow this wisdom to flow through you.

When you’re embodying this inner CEO, pay attention to your posture: are you sitting taller with your spine even more straight? Pay attention to your body. Bring the feelings in your body; ground it in your body. For some people, it’ll even be more powerful to stand up right now and it feel that you really wanna embody your inner CEO. Stand as this wise being that you are – that person that has everything that she needs; all the tools, all the knowledge, all the wisdom within yourself. Breathe in the qualities that you’re feeling and on the scale of 1 to 10, I’d like to invite to crank it up all the way to 10. Just intend to embody it even more. You might start to feel your energy even more light or you might feel more energy within yourself. Maybe some ideas are coming. Just stay in this space, stay in this center, really ground the present, ground the feeling of the inner CEO, feel how it feels. Breathe it in.

And then ask again your question, “What do I need to know today?” “What is my next step?” “What is the answer to a specific question… in my business, in my life, in my career?” Ask again. Be open to what comes… you might be surprised. Someone might appear in your mind’s eyes that you’ll feel drawn to call or to connect to. You might get a symbol or a word. Even if it doesn’t make sense right now, just see it. It’ll make sense later.

And now, just let it go, come back to the present moment. You can get up, stretch and move. Open your eyes.
And again because this is gonna be a recording, you can go back and do it again. You’re most likely gonna get even more information. You might get extra insights and then you can take some notes free write about the messages that you’ve seen.

So I’m curious as to how you feel right now. I would love to hear from you, if you’d like to tell me what you’ve seen or heard or how you feel. Press 5* on your keypad; this will raise your hand. I’d love to hear from you. What did you get from this exercise? How do you feel? Anyone? I’d love to talk to you guys. . . . Okay I got someone who raised their hand and someone with a 307 area code.

Caroline: Hi!

Carolyn (caller): Hi, Caroline! Well, I joined late so I came right into the exercise…. ’ve been thinking about changing the name of my business and really just it’s been with me for a while… So that was the question that I asked and I kinda got the answer! I’ve been really scared to go and make this move since I’ve been working so hard to establish myself by this name but it hasn’t been resonating for me for quite some time and I’m sort of forcing it. So, yeah, that sort of came out for me.

Caroline: So, what did you get? Do you wanna share?

Carolyn (caller): Well, it just said that it’s the right move and it’s aligned into the direction that I wanna go and the direction of more of who I am that I don’t wanna live an ordinary life and I wanna express that through my name and through my business and that I’ve never really lived this ordinary life and my whole life has been about unravelling a story and going deeper into my purpose and that was sort of my whole question in there. Something that I’ve been really tossing around and just resisting because it’s how I’ve already been established and what people are gonna think that if I change this, but this kinda talking in there which really getting me more clear. More like, yeah, this is the right move. This is what you wanna do, this what’s been happening for a while and it doesn’t matter what anybody thinks.

Caroline: Yeah. See, I love it that you’re sharing that with us because this is such a perfect example of creating from the inside out versus creating from the outside in. Creating from the outside in is allowing the fears or the thinking of what people are gonna say to stand in your way and to make your own decisions and now what you did today was you cleared the way and you allowed the inner guidance to say, “No, this is what wants to be born through me” and you’re following that… and let me tell you something . . ., a lot of what we think is gonna happen in the outside world, when we create from the outside in, a lot of what we think is gonna happen; it’s all made up in our thinking anyway. We’re all making it up. We’re making up these stories, we’re making up these things.

We’re believing our thinking so we’re feeling our thinking and we’re feeling scared and then we keep building that story until at some point we can really get stuck. You go within, you allow yourself to trust in your inner guidance and then this is what I have been seeing… is that when you stand in your truth, and you’ve honored that, you’re gonna shine that light and people are gonna respond to that. And I would be surprised that anybody shows up and ask question about and doubt anything because you will be standing in knowing the energy of trusting yourself and going with what you feel is right from wisdom.

Carolyn (caller): Yeah, it’s scary though. What I felt like in that little exercise, I felt really sure of it but now that I’m thinking about it again, I’m scared of it but it’s just, it’s been with me for a while and I’ve been forcing it so… I’m not creating from within me so…

Caroline: Tell me about why it’s scary? Tell me a little bit about that.

Carolyn (caller): My background is in wellness (and my name reflects that) but I’ve been shifting and shifting and shifting. And I have a small but unbelievable following. . . and you know I have other people but it’s almost like I feel that if I keep changing myself + my business that I feel like I’ll let other people down. But they’ll come with me in this transition. Because they’re shifting, to, I don’t why I’m scared of it like I’m scared of losing that little bit of them that I have; that I still have this trust in this relationship. It’s like I don’t wanna let them down and I also don’t want them to think like, “Do you really know what you’re doing?” “because she’s evolving again?” Did that make sense?

Caroline: Yes, it does. It makes sense but again what I’d like to point is that we create these stories that we make up and these are the thoughts and the stories that keep us from living our full potential and our authentic self. Like you said earlier, you wanna live your full potential.

Again, I’m gonna say that what I’ve seen to be true and I’m gonna invite you to look at this and play with this in your life so it’s going to ask for a little bit of trust in your inner guidance so that you can see the results but what I see is that the world will always reflect some of our fears and people will also respond to what we’re holding within ourselves. So, this is the time for us to tap into your inner strength and to own the true strength within yourself; to have faith also in yourself and in your higher power, in your higher potential and because that energy, if you get to model that, people will feel that. People feel your strength. They will feel your inner genius. Did that make sense?

Carolyn (caller): Yeah, it’s interesting to me because this experience I had this morning, I woke up remembering my little girl, remembering what she always said. She never said she wanted to be a nurse or a doctor or astronaut or whatever when she was a little girl. I always said what I wanted to be was I wanted to know people; I wanted to know their story, I wanted to know where they came from. Touch things, grab things, just to try and feel where they came from. I just realized that it’s like unravelling a story; like getting rid of that story and recreating it and restructuring it. It’s huge for me because I feel like I’ve been led by different people that I get influenced by and just to know that, that’s MY thing; to get to the core of that story and really know that’s just exactly what it is. It’s just a story and how everyone really believe that and unravel that story to themselves so I was like doing that even as a child. It’s all just like coming back who I really was.

Caroline: Which is just bigger than any story. And now you’re leading me into my next point.

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter what name your business or website has, it doesn’t even matter so much your branding, your marketing; all of that doesn’t matter as much as you being clear and fully present and really shining your own unique light, your own authentic self. Being fully present and shining that, that is the most important thing; that is the core of all things. Because you can have the best name in the world, the best branding, the best everything but no substance behind it and people wouldn’t connect to that.

So, I think that’s the beauty of evolution of what I see in my work and working with entrepreneurs because we’re taught a lot of things about how we should set up our business, our branding, our marketing, our messages; all of that. What we need to have a successful business… but then I see people and some of them are my Three Principles teachers that have crappy websites; it’s hilarious that they have such a strong grounding, they have such a deep understanding of how life is really created and what is really the full human potential (I’ve been talking about, creating from the inside out)… They have such a deep understanding of that their presence create the space and it speaks for itself.

Imagine the combination of both! Imagine full grounding, full presence, full embodying of your light, of your strength, standing strong with who you really are and then blend that with some of the tools you now have at our disposal: WOW! Infinite possibilities! Imagine what can happen with THAT!

At the beginning, I was calling off on the so called “experts” that wanna sell you techniques and templates and processes and proven systems and it’s all copied and it’s all crap; it’s lacking authenticity and people go and try to take it on and then they completely Lose themselves and then you have to go back and work from the beginning, from scratch.

Who are you really? What is your real gift? You said it earlier in your own words, what you came here to do and that is the essence of your work and that can be felt. What that looks like in terms of a name or a business, who knows? Have fun with it. The name of your business is not what will touch people.

Carolyn (caller): Yeah, right now I’m really clear on that. But then part of me is scared that I have evolved and kept changing so much so I’m just like, I’m still clear on this now but how about in two weeks from now? Am I gonna be still clear on that thing?

Caroline: Yeah, well, things might change in two weeks and I sure hope so because we evolve and we change. I don’t see any problem with that.

Carolyn (caller): The whole time that I’ve been really working to unravel this story and to really break free from it and not just with me but with all of my clients, too. I mean if you look at the big picture of everything, of everyone that I’ve helped and worked with and even my own work. It’s all been about the story… no matter what the topic is, that is the main thing that’s been about.

Caroline: So you know what I would like to leave you with? I’d like to invite you to look at how even your work can evolve and things can completely evolve because I think YOU are holding on to a story. And if you let go of that story, then you’ll get to jump into the unknown which is what I was talking about at the beginning of the call. Something brand new, completely fresh and BIGGER can emerge and your transformation can really take place.

I hope that makes sense. If you wanna talk about it some more feel free to get in touch with me. This is so interesting. I love everything that you’ve shared and thank you for raising your hand, sharing with us. It takes courage to do that. It takes courage to speak from our hearts and to speak the truth and I love you for that so thank you.

Carolyn (caller): Thank you so much for doing this.

Caroline: Like I said, my goal is to help you tap into your Inner Genius and befriend the unknown so that you can create something fresh and new and delicious in your life and business. I want to help you express your FULL potential.

When we create from the space where miracles happen who knows what can unfold? But my guess? It’s going to be pretty damn extraordinary.

I’m going to un-mute everyone so that we can all say goodbye: “Bye everybody! Thank you so much! Bye guys!” ( Loud goodbyes from the callers:)

[Tele-Jam Recording] The 3-Principles & Awakening The Inner Genius

[Tele-Jam Recording]
The 3 Principles & Awakening The Inner Genius

This is a recording of our latest tele-jam recorded on 26/06/14 where I talked about the 3 Principles and “How To Awaken Your Inner Genius To Create A Thriving Business & Ideal Lifestyle”.

This free (and FUN) live training is geared for coaches, authors, speakers, healers, passionate entrepreneurs or ANYONE who want to learn how to unleash THEIR OWN INNER GENIUS to make a positive impact on the world AND make GREAT money doing it. Because let’s face it, if your business is NOT making money it’s not a business. And that sucks.

So if you’ve been struggling to find your voice, to authentically express your unique gifts + talents and figure out HOW THE HECK to create a profitable business doing what you love, then listen to this recording.

(If you’re looking for sales or marketing techniques, pre-written scripts or “proven formulas”, this call won’t give you that.)

My intention is to teach you how you can tap into YOUR OWN Inner Genius (your own creative intelligence) to create real results + abundance in your business and life, NOT copy what everybody else is doing out there. (Aren’t we sick of that any way?)

[CALL TRANSCRIPT]

I hope everybody is doing phenomenally well, and that you are having a glorious day…

Please take a comfortable seat. Make sure that you don’t have any distractions – close your email, close your Facebook page, and put your mobile phone on silent. Today’s content won’t be helpful to you unless you are fully present. Multi-tasking doesn’t work. I start all of my calls talking about the value presence and being fully present. Offer yourself this time to learn. (And, thank you for being here with me. It’s an honour to have you here.)

One of the things I like to do before we start, is to take a moment and to tune into ourselves. I’d like to invite you to close your eyes and tap into your breath for a moment. Breathing can be a very quick way to get grounded. Being present with the breath can bring you into your body, and bring you into the present moment. Let’s breathe together and take a moment to arrive.

Pay attention to your breathing. See if you are breathing more in the upper chest – and if that’s the case, bring your breathing into your belly. Start the breath in the belly, and allow it rise. Take really long inhalations, and really long exhalations. As you are breathing deeply, see if you can bring your attention, your consciousness, to the centre of your being. Whatever that means for you. Just imagine that your consciousness, your attention, is dropping away from your head, down into the centre of your being. For some people this means seating your attention at the heart centre. For others it means placing your attention to the root chakra. Do whatever feels good for you.

This is a way for us to drop away from the noise of the mind. You now might feel a little more grounded in your body. You can also make sure your legs are uncrossed and both feet are on the ground. Feel your body being supported by the chair. Just be here, now – fully present to the moment and to your breath.

Keeping your eyes closed, we are now going to move into our first exercise. Breathe deeply and stay grounded in that quiet space. Tune into yourself from this place. Pay attention to how much noise is in your head. What kind of thinking is going on in your mind? See if you can observe it from a distance, without getting back into the thinking. Try to “see” your thinking from a neutral place. Maybe you’ll notice that something has been occupying your mind for a while – so much so, that it has created stress in your body or an uncomfortable feeling.

See if you can just let it go. One of the things I love to ask myself whenever I’m ruminating on something – which happens a lot – is “how quickly can I let this go?” It brings some mindfulness to the situation, helping me pay attention to the thinking. And, it gives me permission me to just let it go.

As you’ll notice, we tend to live in the feeling of our thinking. We live IN our thinking. That’s how we create life and create our experience. This is a part of the human experience – it applies to all of us. Each and every one of us lives in the feeling of our thinking. Thoughts arise and then not long after a feeling will come up. This is good news when you are thinking happy thoughts, when your thoughts are on a higher level, when things are going well in life. But this is only our reality part of the time. For many of us, we live in stressful thinking for the majority of the time. We live in fearful thoughts, and we feel the fear.

We have crazy thinking, and then we feel it in our body. If we are not able to remain conscious of this pattern, then it becomes a loop. Over and over again we have the same thinking, and over and over again we have the same feelings. Eventually, this loop, when left unattended, will feel like a breakdown, will feel like burnout, being eternally stressed, become physically or mentally ill. All because we forget that thought is energy. Thought is not real – thought is an illusion.

In every moment, the formless is flowing through us – divine intelligence, inner genius, inner goddess, whatever you want to call it – and it’s materialized through thoughts. Consciousness is what makes it look real. Humans are walking around the planet creating a little movie of our experience, that is all made up of thinking. Statistically, we have 60,000 to 90,000 thoughts a day, and very few of these thoughts are new. Most of these thoughts are repeated thought loops. This is why you can have two people, standing side by side, witnessing the same event, and it will look very different to each of them. The basic experience can be the same, but individually, we make up stories about it (sometimes good, sometimes bad) and it colours the events with our thinking. We see life through the eyes of our thinking.

I wanted to start the call by talking about this – this is the Three Principles. The Three Principles are, Thought, Consciousness and Mind, and they apply to everyone.

Whenever you jump on a call with me, read one of my blogs posts, or check out one of my videos, you’ll notice that I’m going to be talking more and more about the 3 Principles, because the 3 Principles apply whether you know about it or not. So, you might as well know about it, right?

The 3 Principles are an understanding, they are not a tool. However, I like to play with exercises that will help you understand how divine intelligence can come through us, and how we can play with it to create in our life. This is what I’m passionate about – creation! Creating from nothing. Creating from the unknown. Because if we keep creating from our heads, we aren’t going to create anything new.

Have you ever had a challenge, or an issue that you really wanted to figure out? And, you kept thinking about it, and thinking about it. Maybe you even brainstormed about it with other people trying to find a solution. Despite your best efforts, nothing new came to the surface. You might have even dug yourself deeper into the hole of confusion. This is because when we keep looking in the direction of the same thought pattern, the same energy that created the problem, we aren’t going to find the solution.

Einstein said that “we can’t solve a problem using the same kind of thinking we used when we created it.” Einstein was an intuitive genius, by the way. He often spoke about the power and importance of intuition. Ideally, our analytical mind, the engineering mind, the calculating mind, should be at the service of our intuition. But in our society we have made the analytical mind king, at the expense of our intuition.

So back to the exercise of dropping your attention away from the mind. This to help you sense the difference between your thinking, and the relief you could feel by stepping back, letting go, and giving yourself more space to tap into the infinite, or inner knowing.The topic of this call was all about your Inner Genius and unleashing this inner, creative potential that you have within yourself. That part of you that is connected to divine intelligence, to Mind – which is the third principle. Divine intelligence is always present, you are always connected to it. You can recognize it as intuition, lighting bolts of inspiration, genius ideas, a fresh new perspective, or insight. And the only thing separating you from this divine intelligence is your thinking – the noise in your head makes it difficult to hear divine intelligence.

I’d like to invite you to imagine going within yourself. Go to that place that you intuitively know is where you can best tap into your own Inner Genius. Breathe into this space and see how it feels. What qualities are coming forth for you? (If you notice resistance coming up in thoughts like; “this is not working. I don’t know what she’s talking about. I don’t have an Inner Genius,” know that this is NOT your Inner Genius. Know that this is just your thinking trying to screw things up. Recognize it, say thank you, and come back to the present moment.)

So tap into this divine intelligence within yourself, and see what it feels like. Keep going deeper and deeper until you get to the core qualities or essence of this space. Qualities like love, gratitude, lightness of being, innate well-being, compassion, expansiveness. Maybe it’s one feeling, maybe it’s several. You don’t need to name them, just let it be expressed. You might see a word, feel a feeling, hear something, or maybe you just know it. All of this is ok. Just allow this beautiful quality, this light from within, this deep inner knowing to shine even more brightly.

Breathe deeply and pay attention to your posture. Are you sitting a little taller, feeling more grounded? Take a moment to breathe this in. When you are ready, you can open your eyes.

It can be as simple as this to connect to your inner knowing. It only takes a few moments. From this space you can also access deep listening.

When we have less on our mind, we are open to hearing something new. What if, in your everyday life, you were to show up in this energy of the Inner Genius? You don’t have so much on your mind. You have less noise, and more quiet. Because of this, you can listen more deeply. And from this space you can really hear what life wants to tell you. You can really hear what others are saying. Not just their words, but you can pick up on the energy behind it.

Everybody is intuitive. Everybody is psychic. It’s not a special gift that only some are born with. The only difference is the noise in your head. Imagine you can show up in life embodying this beautiful, grounded, present energy. How would that feel?

Now, picture one specific thing that you want to create in your life right now. It could be something you want to create in your daily life, your career, or your business. It could be more money, attracting clients, starting a special project, or getting in shape. Create a clear picture of this and see how it feels. Now imagine that your Inner Genius is the force that will guide the creation of this project, or thing that you want.

So let’s ask your Inner Genius, what is the next step for you in this creation? What would it say? What do you see? What are you feeling or hearing? Be open to the first thing that pops into your mind. Don’t overthink it. Don’t question it. Be playful and accept what comes. Even if it seems strange. Whatever you get, however you get it, let’s just play with it. Pay attention to your answers, and then pay attention to how it feels.

But here’s the trick. I know that some of you have learned that in order to create something in your life, it has to feel good. There are a lot of teachers that talk about creating from a place of desire and positive feelings. I’m going to bring a new spin to this. How you feel is absolutely irrelevant to how you create. Because your thoughts are creating your feelings, feelings are the last thing you want to orient your compass towards. BUT how you feel is still an indication about what you are about to manifest. You can get a lot of information from how you feel. If you feel excited – good! Keep going. If you feel nervous or scared – then we have to go deeper. You have to ask yourself if you are going to stop moving forward and taking risks because of fear? If your thinking creates your feelings of fear, then you can understand that these are just thoughts, and you can choose to snap out of it. To choose not to believe what your head is saying, and go back to your Inner Genius for guidance. Intuitive guidance will feel clear, pure and neutral. That is what you need to orient your compass towards. Not on the ever shifting landscape of emotions.

Sometimes just being aware of your thinking can empower you to create a clearer state of mind. With a clear state of mind, your Inner Genius can give you clear guidance. Everything feels easier in this state. With greater clarity comes greater momentum.

So back to the question you were asking your Inner Genius: What is the next logical step? What do I need to know about this creative project? What is the path I should take? Take a moment, breathe and see if you can get more information. When you are ready you can stretch your body, and open your eyes. Take some notes about this experience – especially if you got a lot of information.

And now I’d like to hear from you. What did you hear?

Q&A:

Krista: Thank you for your call. I found it really relaxing. A nice break to my day. My question is, what would you tell someone who has a lot of challenges in their life and a lot of mental exhaustion? What advice would you give to someone who might be blocked in that regard? How do you get them to tap into their Inner Genius if there is a lot of clutter in their head?

Caroline: Well, the first thing I’d want to talk about it is helping them understand the nature of Thought, as we discussed earlier. It’s very difficult to hear inner guidance from a place of mental exhaustion. (Although, it is possible, because insight can come at any time.) The most important thing is that if they have mental exhaustion, it’s probably because they are thinking the same thing over and over again. They’re repeating stories over and over again. It’s exhausting to hold the same thoughts. It’s as simple as that. For example, sometimes, when you wake from a nap, you feel refreshed, and that’s because the mind has gotten a break from thinking. Thought is very powerful.

Consciousness makes us believe it is real. Whatever you think, you’re always going to be right. You’ll look for proof that supports your viewpoint. But the truth is, one insight into the understanding of how life is really created, and how thinking really works can bring relief pretty quickly. Thought applies to everything and thought creates feelings. I’ll share and example. Last spring, I created a schedule for myself that was very overwhelming. It made me stressed and anxious and I felt overwhelmed.

So, I had this conversation with one of my coaches, who also teaches the Three Principles, and he somehow managed to show me that my thinking was creating all of my stress and overwhelm. I didn’t see it right away. I hung up, and felt some relief, but I also felt a little bit of sadness. Sadness because I hadn’t been taking care of myself, and had gotten too caught up in moving forward with my life and in my business. I had suppressed my innate well being. It was buried underneath my thinking. Because I stayed in the conversation, and kept wanting to understand exactly what my coach was saying about human nature, I had a flash of insight. I can’t explain it. It just happened. And my overwhelm disappeared. In fact, I’ve been living anxiety-free and stress-free 99% of the time, ever since. This was a big deal for me. My schedule is just as busy, but it doesn’t impact me the same way.

So getting back to your friend and their mental exhaustion, they too could have a moment of insight and realize that their thinking is creating their feelings. With just that simple realization, relief could be immediate. And the thing about insight that I love, is once you have it, you’ll never lose it.

For instance, if I give you a shortcut to get to work, you’ll naturally take that shortcut next time without thinking about it too much. It just happens. Innate well-being is always there. Your friend can access it, as soon as she lets go of believing in her thinking so much.

In one moment, the buoy of well being can pop back up to the surface.

Krista: What really stood out was the idea of just letting go. Not believing that what you think is necessarily reality. I love the breathing exercise, but I wonder if there is another way of getting rid of the clutter. This is a client that I’m working with and I’m trying to help her.

Caroline: If breathing doesn’t work, there are other things that can help: meditation, reading a book, taking a nap, going swimming. But these ways are not a 100%. Once you look in the direction of the Three Principles it becomes 100% because there are no exceptions. Clients may or may not abide by the techniques that you give them, but an insight will always work. For example, I have a friend who told me that whenever she gets into crazy thinking, she picks up a book. I asked her if this was 100% successful and she admitted that it wasn’t. Sometimes she found herself reading the same paragraph over and over again. Meditation can be the same way.

If we can see how humans create and how we all live in the feeling of our thinking, then tapping into the Inner Genius is easier.

Krista: My client has been getting a lot out of our coaching together, but I notice that similar patterns are popping up, and so I’m looking for new strategies to help her.

Caroline: What I’ve noticed is that real transformation can only come from within – from having an “aha” moment.

And this comes from insight or inner wisdom. A lot of the coaching strategies that we learn are based in repetition and techniques, but that just creates more thinking. That’s why it’s not a 100%. It still might work, though.

My invitation to you is the next time you work with your client, be really present, and see if you can be clear of mind. See what occurs to you in the present moment. Really listen, and you’ll find that something profound will occur to you in your work with her. As a coach you can only do so much. However, saying the right thing at the right moment and being guided by your inner wisdom could have a great impact on your client.

Krista: That’s perfect, and very helpful. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it.

Caroline: My pleasure.

—-

Ilia: Hi Caroline. Thanks so much for the call. I’m really enjoying it so far. It all made sense. I totally understand this language and I work every day to apply it to the mental chatter.

But I have one question that keeps playing over and over in my head. I have these doubts about if I’m on the right track. Am I doing the right thing in life? Everything seems to be pointing in the right direction, but financially, I’d like it to be more abundant. There are times in the year that are good financially, and yet, during the times that are not so great, these doubts creep in.

I wonder if I’m really doing the right thing.

Caroline: Tell me a little bit more about these doubts so we can tap into it little more.

Ilia: There are moments when I would like my business to be running smoother, to have more clients, and have better flow in my business. It’s not coming as easy, and in those moments, my doubts start screaming at me. Doubts that say: “You don’t know what you are doing.” “Get a real job.”

Caroline: (Laughs) Yes, I know that voice. It’s very opinionated. There are two things I’d like to say about this. The first is to go back to the deeper understanding that our feelings are created by our thinking. When we get into the loop of doubtful thinking we are feeling the results, and it can become a downward spiral. As a result, the voice gets louder and louder and it’s not long before it tells us to get “a real job.” This is normal. The other thing is that, as human beings, we’re always going to have thinking. Some good, some bad – but it’s always there.

It’s impossible to control your thoughts. I know in the law of attraction they are trying to get people to control their thinking, but it doesn’t work. It can only work for so long because you don’t always know what thought might come next. The problem is not the thoughts, the problem is more the belief of the thought, that then leads to doubt and the screaming internal voice of fear.

Finally, we know that this voice is not the voice of divine intelligence. Trust your path and your inner wisdom. We often tend to beat ourselves up about our own thinking. Especially those of us in the holistic or healing profession, because we think we should know better.

But take a moment to breathe and see where you are headed. Step back into trust and allow the mystery to unfold. You don’t know how things can change. From a clearer state of mind, and a place that is aligned with your inner guidance, we can make better decisions.

From a place of doubt and fear we don’t make good decisions.

Ilia: Yes, that makes sense. No matter what has happened, I have continued on my path. Occasionally, though, I loose confidence and loose trust, so I make decisions that are based on the fear. In hindsight, I can look back and see that pattern in my business.

Caroline: Everybody goes through challenges in their business. I know I certainly did. Getting stuck in that thinking is not going to help, though. Relief can come quickly when you realize that YOU are creating this thinking and feeling. You don’t have clarity of mind from this place, but it doesn’t mean that your internal warning system isn’t working. It might be that your internal warning system is telling you that you should look at the issue from another angle. So I want to bring that into the conversation also. Going against the current can drain your energy.

Willpower and effort and strength are not necessarily aligned with the flow. Let go and go with the flow. This can be a challenge, but you are called to do it. In fact, I know you can do it. You asked the question because you are ready to bring it to the light.

Ilia: Thank you. That was perfect.

Ok. Thank you all so much for joining the call. It’s been wonderful!

A Special Opportunity To Work With Me This Summer

A Special Opportunity To Work With Me This Summer

Summer is ultra short here in Quebec and I make sure that I savor every moment of it. Which is why I do most of my writing, creating + client work outside on my patio :)

10386266_10152616628846019_7834990858011444909_n

To take advantage of the easygoingness, hammocking-ness vibe of the season, I’ve created a special 6-session package so that we can work together at a leisurely pace yet still ensure that you playfully “work” towards reaching your goals & dreams.

And I’m calling it…

The Summer Exploratory Pack

As you may know, I usually only take on clients that are willing to commit to a 3 to 6 months transformative journey since the work that we do is very profound (and life changing quite frankly).

But on the spur of the moment (actually, after finishing a coaching conversation with my delightful client Casey), I’ve decided to craft this special Summer Exploratory Pack and offer it to 5 ladies.

I’m only opening 5 spots since I’m already pleasantly busy with a new group of Intuitive Leaders that are enrolled in this summer’s Intuitive Leadership Academy & Mastermind. (Pleasantly busy is the key word here. Who wants to be crazy busy in the summer anyway?)

This 6-Session Summer Exploratory Pack is for you if:

❤ You want to experience the transformative power of coaching and see the benefits first hand in your life. The benefits vary client to client (coaching is a personal experience afterall) but you can get a good idea of the impact of coaching with me on my Praise page

❤ You want to gain clarity on a specific issue, explore one (or several) areas of your life, like money, work, business or love

❤ You want to get unstuck and move forward in a specific area (yes, that could be money, work, business or love) :)

❤ You want to create specific results in a project, in your business or achieve a yummy (yet challenging) goal

Most importantly, you want to gain a deeper understanding of how life is created via the understanding of the 3 Principles (that’s creating from the inside-out if you’re new here) and learn how to tap into your own inner genius to create… anything you want.

(Learning this will literally change EVERYTHING in your life.)

Plus, I’m told that working with me is a blast so get ready:)

10271266_10152598770116019_1080069561107492302_o

Here’s what you need to know:

We’ll meet via Skype or phone for 6 sessions (60 minutes per session) and we’ll explore what you want to create in your life in a way that you have most likely never done before.

So if that sounds like an exploration you’d like to do, and if 6 sessions sounds just perfect for you this Summer, you can reserve your spot by clicking the cute yellow button below.

*This 6-session Summer Pack allows you to save $375. Cheers to Summer!

[VIDEO-Guided Visualization] Tapping Into The Intuitive Leader To Manifest Your Goals & Dreams

[VIDEO-Guided Visualization] Embody the Qualities of The Intuitive Leader

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT]

Today I’d like to teach you a quick exercise that will show you how to tap into the qualities of the intuitive leader within yourself, and use those qualities to your advantage.

Tapping into the qualities of an Intuitive Leader can be a wonderful way to prepare BEFORE you take action towards a dream, a goal, or a creative project. It’s kinda like infusing your energy with superpowers :)

The Intuitive Leader is courageous – purposefully creating a life that she loves.

Here’s the good news: Your Inner Genius already knows how to create a life you adore and I’m going to show you how.

You can learn to tap into the Intuitive Leader within by following this simple exercise:

Step 1: Think of three people that you truly admire.
Choose someone that REALLY inspires you. Someone that has all the qualities of a beautiful leader.

Step 2: For each person, write a list of the qualities that you admire in them.

For example, let’s say that Oprah is on your list and that you admire her because she’s super successful and mega rich. (Hopefully, you like her for her compassion and for her good work too! But I’ll leave that part up to you:).

When trying to list what qualities you admire, you may find you get stuck on terms like success or achievement, but I encourage you to go as deep as possible.

Dig in and uncover the core qualities that really set the person you admire apart.

What has enabled them to create the success, the legacy, and the impact they’ve had on the world. You may have to use your imagination, because you don’t necessarily know them personally (like Oprah!), so tap into your heart and find the answers to why they inspire you. Eventually you’ll uncover core qualities like courage, wisdom, compassion and inner strength.

Step 3: Pick the top three qualities that you are most drawn to.
Looking over the list of qualities for all three leaders, choose the ones that stand out the most. Which ones jump off the page and get you excited?

Here’s the magic key…

Those qualities already exist within yourself. This is why you are drawn to these people and are inspired by them.

Perhaps you feel resistance around this idea? Maybe you’ve convinced yourself that you couldn’t possibly have these amazing qualities too? If so, this is a call to step into your power, my intuitive beauty. Tap into your potential as an Intuitive Leader and let these qualities shine.

Step 4: Embody the qualities of the Intuitive Leader

–> Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths.

–> Think of your top 3 qualities and begin to embody them.

–> See what they feel like in your body. Where does the feeling sit, what is the vibration of it? Get to know them and get comfortable.

–> Then, one by one, begin to crank up the volume on each of these qualities.

–> Let their vibration expand outwards with each breath you take.

–> The goal is to expand these qualities so that you feel it throughout your body, inside your heart and expanding out into the space around you.

–> Once you’ve turned the dial all the way up, and you feel as though you’ve gotten the volume up to a 10, then just sit back, relax and enjoy the feeling.

Do this short exercise often. Embody these qualities before you start your day, or anytime you are faced with a situation that requires a little extra courage or strength.

The more you do it, the easier it gets, and the faster you’ll become aligned with the power of your Intuitive Leadership abilities.

The benefits?

Tweetable! When you allow your inner guidance to shine, everything become easier.

❤ Circumstances that were once challenging become effortless.

❤ Manifesting in alignment with your inner goddess becomes easier.

❤ You magnetically attract things and experiences that are in harmony with these beautiful qualities.

Imagine… what would be possible if you allowed your Intuitive Leader to take centre stage?

Does your Intuitive Leader need a little coaxing to step out of the shadows? Let’s work a little magic and help you shine.

Two Essential Keys To A Successful Business

Two Essential Keys To A Successful Business

How are you doing these days my Intuitive Beauty?

Is your business thriving? Are you getting the results you want? Are you making the money you need to support your ideal lifestyle? Do you feel supported?

Are you happy?

These are all valid and important questions, my luv. And if you’re answering “no” to most of these questions, than you’re probably feeling like something needs to change…

So let me ask you: what do you need to do (or stop doing) or change to create a successful business and an extraordinary life?

When I pondered these questions, I knew that to take my business to its next level of success I’d need help. I knew that I couldn’t do it alone. I didn’t want to do it alone.

So I created my own success team.

I hired a Master Intuitive Coach®, a Chief Organizer & Accountability Coach and a Transformative Coach®.

Getting the support of coaches is paramount to the success of any entrepreneur.

Think about it; do athletes who want to make it to the Olympics have coaches? Hell Yez!

And working with my own team of expert coaches?

–> Blocks identified & busted: check.
–> Goals & dreams identified: check.
–> Action plan created: check.
–> Accountability & gentle kick in the ass (when necessary): check.
–> Insights, breakthroughs & quantum leaps: check.
–> Creative projects taking life: check.
–> Achieving goals (more effortlessly no less): check.
–> Creating clients & fruitful opportunities: check.

Feels nice to see my business generate revenue, pay for exotic travels & adventures, serve clients around the world, allow me to take time off, spend time with friends in London (and Morocco next Christmas), work with a mentor & study with amazing teachers…

But there was something else I was longing to create for myself.

I longed for the camaraderie of a small group of women coming together for the purpose of supporting each other’s vision & success.

I had heard A LOT about the benefits of a mastermind. So I decided to make it happen and created two mastermind groups: a B-School Business Mastermind where 4 of us meet bi-weekly virtually (from around the world) via Skype AND a local mastermind where we meet in person.

In this video + blog post, I share with you the benefits of being part of a mastermind, so if you want the full scoop I suggest you check it out.

But what I can tell you is this: thanks to my masterminds, I took BIGGER action AND started to tackle my BIG goals RIGHT AWAY.

So my big 3 month goals? Done in one week.

When a group of like-minded, supportive women entrepreneurs come together to support each other’s dreams, magic happens.

If your business is not where you want it to be and you need a little kick in the butt, loving support and accountability; join a mastermind. Don’t wait, this is probably the best investment you’ll ever make.

Yes, you will often have to pay to join a mastermind. Sometimes thousands of dollars.

banner-3

But right now, you can join a 3 month Mastermind that I will facilitate when you enrol in The Intuitive Leadership Academy.

So as a student of the Academy, you get a seat in this mastermind -for free. (That’s a $695 USD value.)

This combination of one-on-one coaching & Mastermind means that you’ll get 6 months of support for yourself AND your business.

Whether you decide to enrol in the Academy & Mastermind or not, do yourself a favour and get support.

You don’t have to do it alone.

Life is short my Darling, don’t wait. Get the help you need to start making your dream business and extraordinary life a reality right now.

How to Get A (Good) Return on Investment

How to Get A (Good) Return on Investment

ROI

In the past 2 years I’ve invested over $60,000 in my business.

For a start-up business, this can seem like a shit-load of cash.

But here’s what I believe: you gotta spend money (right) to make money (right).

I used to feel resistance at the thought of about spending money for my business. I’d find a boat-load of reasons not to invest in tools, training, coaching, marketing, and my business suffered from it. It lagged behind, dragging it’s sorry ass, never making any real progress.

Now? I ‘m surrendering my resistance and I’m learning to spend money on the right things. Which doesn’t means shoes or expensive bags, unfortunately.

Because when you spend money the right way, what you’re really saying is “I believe in myself.”

You’re placing all the bets on yourself.

Investing money in myself and my biz also means that I have to up my game. That I’m declaring myself ready to step up and play in the big leagues.

My dad use to say “give it your all and finish what you start”. And he was right.

In a world full of noise, distractions, social media, bajillions of blogs, programs , services, offerings, the next shiny object is always there, taking your focus away from what truly needs your undivided attention.

The key then becomes dedicating 100% of your energy to one thing, and to finishing it.

Finish the course, the program, the book, the training, the coaching package. Don’t stop now, you’re almost there.

(Need accountability or a gentle kick in the ass? I’m here.)

Of course, enjoying the journey is key because there’s no point in doing anything unless it includes a lot of laughing and a little self-discovery.

So give it your best, finish strong and YOU WILL see results.

And your investments? They’ll pay off.

2 Key Factors That Influenced My Success

[VIDEO] 2 Key Factors That Influenced My Success
This blog post is part of a blogging extravaganza called ❤ YOUR COMMUNITY BLOG TOUR put together by Yogipreneur Racheal Baxter Cook.

When Racheal asked me if I wanted to be part of her blogging tour I responded “Hellz Yez!” without hesitation.

Why?

‘Cause I love me a blogging party AND I thought that you, my darling, would surely want to learn some freakin’ fabulous tips & tricks for community building from 30 seasoned entrepreneurs.

If you can, watch both the video below AND read the blog because they both contain key information that will help YOU build your community.

There’s a cocktail of factors that influence the success of a business, but in this blog post -and video- I’m sharing my big 2.

These 2 key factors have impacted the success of my business in a BIG way. And they continue to do so.

Whether you’re wanting to create a community through blogging, give birth to a creative project, launch products, programs or services, or write a book (that will hopefully become a NY times best seller), it’s absolutely crucial to have these 2 key factors in place:

SUPPORT & VISION.

Trying to build a community without support & vision is like trying to produce a broadway show all on your own. Without your cast, you’re doomed to fail.

Let’s talk about support first…

Getting the support you need is crucial to the success of any endeavor. No one can do it alone because it would be too damn hard and, well, it would get kinda lonely and boring.

It’s easy to lose focus, momentum and inspiration especially if you’re a solopreneur.

Leveraging the power of a group of like-minded peeps has been instrumental to my success. The only thing I regret is not seeking the support of a power posse sooner!

This beautiful support can come in different forms… Here, I share my top 3:

1. Joining a mastermind

This year I finally created my own mastermind.

What is a mastermind you ask?

A mastermind is a small group that you meet with for the purpose of reinforcing growth and success while offering support to one another. In this case: business growth and world domination.

Every 2 weeks, I meet with 4 other incredible women entrepreneurs from around the world via google hangout. We each have our turn in the “hot seat” where we share our challenges, goals, projects we’d like to get help with and in turn, we receive from each member of the group, constructive feedback, creative ideas, possible solutions and sometimes the gentle kick in the butt we need to bust through obstacles or limitations.

Being part of a mastermind is one of the best ways (besides working one-on-one with a coach) to get loving support AND accountability.

The impact for my business?

Momentum. HUGE momentum and even quantum leaps.

(And I don’t say that lightly.)

Thanks to my mastermind, I took more action (BIGGER action) in my business than I had done in well, a loooong time. When we first came together I had shared with my mastermind my 3 month goals and the bigger vision for my business, and after our FIRST meeting, I started to tackle the BIG goals RIGHT AWAY.

Pretty damn cool if you ask me.

Now I’m way ahead in my schedule and the momentum is carrying me forward powerfully.

Wanna join a group of like minded entrepreneurs that will help you reach your goals and perhaps even take leaps in your business?

For a limited time, when you register to The Intuitive Leadership Academy & Mastermind you get a seat in a 3 month mastermind -for FREE. that’s a $695 UDS value my Dear. Click here to learn more about this game changing program.

2. Being part of a community of like minded people

This year I made one of the biggest investments (ever) by enrolling in a high level coach training with the Supercoach Academy.

(Wait ‘til I show you my Supercoach cape: it has glitter on it :)

What makes the Supercoach Academy so incredible is that the conversation revolves around the 3 Principles. Now, I won’t get into details here about the 3 Principles, but you’ll hear me talk about it now and again in this blog and in upcoming videos.

I will sum up the experience in this way: POWERFUL, life changing & transformative.

And the best thing about the experience? Is the community.

Being part of the Supercoach Academy and the 3 Principles community enables me to get support & be in service to like-minded, heart-centered people, which is like rocket fuel that ignites my Soul.

When the Soul is ignited, all the areas of your life will benefit. Including your business.

Which community are you part of that makes you feel supported and loved? Who do you hang out with? Need to make some much needed change? Do it!

3. Working with coaches

Working with coaches? Essential.

(Gasp! A coach needs a coach?) Of course! And a coach in training will DEFINITELY benefit from working with a coach mentor. (How can you be a coach if you’ve never BEEN coached before?)

Working with my own coaches has enabled me to create a much bigger vision for myself and my business.

It’s got me unstuck, propelled me forward (again, more momentum), and enabled me to have a much bigger impact on the world, on my clients and ultimately, to be (and to feel) more successful.

What does that mean in terms of financial statements at the end of the year?

Profit, my friend.

Don’t do it alone, my Luv.

If you’re stuck in your business and are not making progress, consider adding a coach to your team, it’ll be an investment that pays off.

Now let’s talk about vision…

Building a community and getting your work out into the world is sooooo much easier when you have a clear vision.

Creating a vision is like creating a blueprint. It’s kinda like tapping into the formless and inviting it to take form.

Need a little help in creating a vision for yourself or your business?

Start by answering these questions:

1.) Who do I really want to serve? Why?

2.) How do I want my clients, community, readers, fans to feel when they visit my website, get my email communication or read my book?

3.) What is my passion? What lights me up so much that I want to share it/talk about it with others?

4.) What is my life purpose?

5.) What do I want my legacy to be? Which really means: how do I want to impact my community and the world?

I know that the last question is a big one, but it’s important to ponder what you want your legacy to be because frankly, the world doesn’t need another copycat. We don’t need another business out there doing or copying what everybody else is doing. That would be repetitive and well, boring.

As Oscar Wilde said: “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.”

That applies in business as well, folks.

Because what this world needs is for women entrepreneurs to step fully into their own unique authentic power, to express their own unique gifts & talents and to create, impact and share from a place of empowerment and authenticity.

But don’t bang your head trying to figure out your life purpose.

Your life purpose is simply the expression of Spirit (also called Inner Goddess or inner genius) through you. And it can be expressed in every moment of your life, even in the little acts of kindness and outbursts of laughter.

So live your purpose and infuse your vision with the BEST OF YOURSELF.

Be full of YOURSELF. (Not someone else.)

Your community, your readers, your clients, your team members will be attracted to YOU.

To YOUR work, to your brilliance.

Namaste,
Caroline

[VIDEO] Getting Off The “No-Train” (And Into The Space That Creates Miracles)

[VIDEO] Getting Off
The “No-Train”
(And Into The Space That Creates Miracles)

I’ve been noticing an interesting yet disconcerting trend these days. This trend, initiated by some of my peers, is having a devastating impact on young, impressionable entrepreneurs and I’d like to put a stop to it before it becomes a full blown epidemic.

It goes by different names but lately the most popular one is “getting-on-the no-train”, which basically means saying an emphatic “NO” as a way to avoid creating stress or overwhelm in your business and life.

I find this trend unfortunate. Here’s why…

The problem is that “getting-on-the-no-train” really isn’t the solution to getting rid of stress, anxiety or overwhelm.

When you allow “no” to be your initial response to new projects, new requests and demands on your time, to avoid stress or overwhelm, you’re living from the “outside in”; meaning, you’re letting the outside world dictate how you feel inside.

And that’s a trap.

The outside world does not dictate how you feel, it’s your own thoughts about what’s going on out there that really creates your feelings.

The other problem with the “getting-on-the-no-train” trend is that some people will jump in without checking in first with their most trusted adviser: their inner guidance.

Instead, they choose to follow the” leaders”. Blindly.

But here’s the thing…

Just because some of our beloved online superstars are promoting the “getting-on-the-no-train” doesn’t mean you should do the same, my Luv.

You, ma Chérie, might be at a place in your life where saying “no” is totally the wrong strategy.

Saying no could mean:

✔ staying stuck
✔ not moving forward
✔ not getting the help you need
✔ not gathering your testimonials & building your credibility
✔ not getting paid for your awesomeness
✔ not gaining confidence in your skills
✔ not giving your time to a worthy cause
✔ not helping someone in need
✔ not testing your products
✔ and most of all not creating the space where synchronicity and miracles happen

Getting-on-the-no-train could mean the end of your business before it has even started…

In the past 15 years that I’ve been in business for myself (and for the past 44 years that I’ve walked the planet as a human being) here’s what I’ve noticed:

I’ve noticed that…

Saying “yes” opens doors where more can come in (more money, more clients, more fun, more joy, more laughter…).

Saying “no” closes doors and nothing comes in.

Saying “yes” brings more opportunities my way.
Saying “no” repulses them.

Saying “yes” creates expansion, in my body, my mind, my Soul and makes me feel alive.

Saying “no” creates contraction and makes me feel small. And dull.

Saying “yes” moves me forward, sometimes in quantum leaps.

Saying “no” keeps me stuck.

Saying “yes” attracts powerfully.

Saying “no” blocks powerfully.

Saying “yes” keeps me connected to the space where miracles happen.

Saying “no” sucks the magic out of the room.

Saying “yes” invites me to keep looking in the direction of infinite possibilities.

Saying “no” blinds me to what’s right in front of me.

Saying “yes” inspires me to show up and play bigger. Courageously.

Saying “no” keeps me playing safe and small.

Saying “yes” gives me instant access to The Big Mind (also called Universal or God Mind).

Saying “no” keeps me stuck in my head. And my genius? Does not reside in my head.

Now, I’m not in any way suggesting that I say “yes” to eeeeeeveeeeeryyyyyything that comes my way. I’ve set clear boundaries (that I respect) and I don’t say “yes” to what doesn’t feel good or doesn’t make sense.

What I am saying however, is that when I’m in a “yes energy” I have direct access to my inner Goddess and everything seems to flow easily in my life

So before you jump on the “no train”, check in first with your inner Goddess and see how it feels.

Does adopting a “no” mindset make you feel expanded, light, alive, abundant?

Or does it make you feel just the opposite?

And then?

Decide.

Do what feels good to you, not what everybody out there is doing.

What A Real Intuitive Leader Looks Like : Meeting Marianne Williamson

What A Real Intuitive Leader Looks Like (Meeting Marianne Williamson)

I’m back from an AH-MA-ZING week in New York city where I met mega powerhouse Marianne Williamson at a special event hosted by Marie Forleo & Kris Carr at the New York City town hall.

The energy in the room was electric as the women gathered, sushi in one hand, glass of grigio in the other, to meet and greet with the star of the night. Dressed in a gorgeous flowy black skirt, cinched black jacket and sexy high heel boots, Marianne Williamson glowed as she warmly welcomed her guests to the VIP cocktail area.

“Thank you SO MUCH for coming” she said as she grabbed my hand and flashed a huge smile.

Standing only 5 feet tall (with heels no less), Marianne Williamson may be tiny, but she’s definitely a powerhouse. She oozes strength (yet she remains ultra feminine), her demeanor is that of an undeniable leader and her magnetic presence can be felt across the room.

Marianne is an incredible inspiration and someone who definitely walks the talk. But what I love most about her? She’s courageously taking REAL action to change the world of politics by running for congress. And that’s why we all gathered to support her on a cold (even by New York standards) Wednesday night.

That evening, hosts Marie and Kris took to the stage to passionately talk about leadership and share why they’re cheering & supporting Marianne in her BIG vision. If you’re so inclined, you can support Marianne, too, by visiting her website. And feel free to spread the woooooord.

But being an intuitive leader doesn’t mean you have to run for congress, create a mega online business or be a best selling author.

Being an Intuitive Leader means that :

❤ you stand strong in your glorious authentic self and are inspired (not envious) of other leaders

❤ you feel confident in your gifts & talents and generously share them with the world

❤ you honour your value & worth and you create abundance accordingly

you measure your success by the amount of love (and hugs) you have + give in your everyday life, not by the amount of money in your bank account

❤ you speak from the heart -one human being to another- not from a pre-written script given to you by some ‘expert’

❤ you don’t believe in the tacky elevator speech, you prefer letting your inner Goddess speak through you moment by moment

❤ you don’t seek approval from others, you’re confident in your brilliance and you let your work speak for itself

❤ you courageously step into your own spotlight and will dim your light for no one

❤ you’d rather carve out your own adventure-filled path than follow someone else’s

❤ and most of all, you trust & consult with the wisest advisor of all, your own inner guidance, and you take inspired action to create the life of your dreams.

I’ve created an exclusive 8 week coaching experience where you learn to re-establish + strengthen the connection to your inner Goddess to create a thriving business (or a flourishing career) and an extraordinary life.

However, this program is not for everyone.

The Academy is for the bold & courageous woman who is ready to tap into her own genius to design her ideal lifestyle, and take concrete action to reach her goals & create the life of her dreams.

If this is you?

[VIDEO] Busting The Myths Of Success & The Online Biz

[VIDEO] Busting The Myths Of Success & The Online Biz

If you’ve been doing business online lately (or are a starting an online business) you most likely came across some of this:

The secrets to creating a multi-million dollar business” or “How to build a 6 (or even 7!) figure business in one year!” or “How to become an overnight success” and “Learn from the top experts in the world!”

Big claims, bold statements and grand promises coming from self proclaimed gurus.

Frankly, I think it’s time to bust some of these myths

About the so-called experts…

Maybe it’s my (rebellious) capricorn personality, but I believe that there’s only one ‘expert’ that really matters: me.

I’m the expert when it comes to trusting what’s best for me and my business. Not some self proclaimed guru.

Why?

Because I have access to the wisest advisor of all : my inner Goddess.

(And I’m here to remind you that you too can access this divine inner guidance.)

Does it mean that I don’t seek guidance once in a while?

Absolutely not. I regularly take courses, workshops, trainings and invest in high quality online programs. I also work with coaches, a Tarot master, mentors and amazingly talented people who are excellent at what they do because I believe that investing in myself and in my business is crucial to my success. It’s what enables me to learn, grow, and make leaps in my business.

But ultimately, once I’ve gathered the data, I want to think for myself, follow my intuition and make my own decisions.

Tweet: “You have access the the wisest advisor of all: your inner guidance.”

About the secrets to creating a multi-million dollar business…

There are no secrets. Stop believing that shit.

Calling something a ‘secret’ is a marketing tactic. It’s used to make you believe they (the ‘experts’) know more than you. It’s a hook, and it works.

Yes, there are important things you must know in order to build a successful business. But that’s no secret.

When I look at multi-million dollar businesses & successful entrepreneurs, I don’t see a ‘secret to success’. I see a burning desire to be of service, I see passion, determination, courage, risk taking, unwavering dedication, focus, resilience, creativity and consistent action.

Apply the same dedication to anything you put your mind and heart to, and you will eventually succeed.

If you stick with it long enough, it’ll start paying off and maybe you’ll even make a few millions if that’s your goal.

About building a 6 (or even 7) figure business…

Building a 6 or even 7 figure business from scratch? In one year?

Highly unlikely.

Possible?

Maybe.

The next time someone makes such a huge promise as “teaching you how to build a 6 or 7 figure business” (in a year no less) look under the hood of their business.

Are they really making the money they’re claiming? Are they generating millions yet still operating in the red or are they actually making profits?

I’ve made over a million dollars with my retail business but I’m not a millionaire. (Not yet.) ;)

Let’s say that these ‘experts’ have built a multi-million dollar business in a year, take a really close look at their past experience; do they have years of prior business or marketing experience? ‘Cause 10 or 15 years of experience under your belt may very well eventually turn into a 6 or 7 figure business.

In other words, it may look like they’ve built a million dollar business in a year but that’s not really the case now, is it?

Which brings me to overnight success…

You know those Superstars that are on everyone’s radar these days?

It may look like they’re enjoying overnight success, but it most likely didn’t happen that way.

Behind that ‘overnight success’ there are countless hours -probably even years- of dedicated work. There’s also resilience and the courage to get back up -over and over again- after the smack downs, the challenges and the failures.

So the next time an expert wants to sell you on a promise that seems a little far-fetched, I’d like to invite you to look deeper

Look deeper into the promise and see how it feels. Look behind the words of what is being said to get a sense of what is true and what isn’t.

But most of all, look deep within yourself.

Because it’s there that you’ll find the most qualified ally in your success. She’s the expert-within who truly knows what’s best for you and she’ll always lead you to your highest good.
