Keep it Simple – 5 steps to effectiveness in a frenzied get-it-done-world

by Cheryl Brewster

Stress may not seem like a  decision, but over time, we begin to see where it is. Fight, flight or freeze responses are immediate, but when we take a step back,  we do see that we have choice in changing our responses…. do that enough times and we have improved our lifestyles for the better. It all begins with baby steps and being more mindful…. paying attention on purpose without judgment in the present moment. In a world gone mad with deadlines and getting things done at all costs, we must be vigilant in honoring our values. We must ensure they are not being eroded by inner and outer forces that at first glance appear noble, but over time, diminish our quality of life.

Peace of mind = effectiveness. But all too often, our definition of effectiveness can get skewed if we focus on results at the expense of our values.

In his book “A Life of  Being , Doing and Having Enough,” author Wayne Muller starts out with these comments:  “we have forgotten what enough feels like…. So we work and add and never stop, never back away, never feel complete, and we despair of ever finding comfort, relief, or sanctuary.”

Sound familiar?

Step #1 – Evaluate Be truthful, honest and brave… If you keep your same daily routine, where will you be in the next 5 years?  Is that a YIKES! or a YES! response? What one small thing can you begin to do in your daily routine?

Step#2 – Choose Peace When we dig deep into our core, we find the strength to identify and drop old ineffective patterns.  When we focus on cleaning up on the inside, we find the strength to clean up on the outside too.

Muller’s take on this is profound:: “Here is the final thing we must know. We carry within us a fierce grace that will not be extinguished, does not break and cannot ever leave us comfortless. It lives in us. This life force, whatever it is that allows a blade of grass to push up, up through concrete to reach for sun and warmth. It lives in us. This is what we are made up of. If we trust in this impossibly resilient capacity to bear all we are given, and re-calibrate  our speed….”

Step #3 – Re-calibrate Your Speed Harness that “fierce grace within you,” it’s the booming voice that says “You can DO this!”  Fierce grace wins over the internal critic every time… it does require that you slow down to hear it, however…. it is always there…. it’s your noticing it and inviting it to lead that changes the trajectory of your life. It’s your willpower to Take You Stand for lasting change.

Step #4 – Use the power of Imagination! Imagination is the bridge from the unconscious to the conscious… it holds the secret solutions beyond the rational mind. It’s fun, refreshing and very effective… get relaxed, imagine what ease, effortlessness or flow would do in any given situation and notice the ideas or mental images that flash across your internal screen!

Step #5 – Breathe! If you kept a “breath log,” you’d be amazed at how little you maximize this incredible energy booster! In order  to access clear thinking and relieve anxiety and tension—like a plant needs water—your brain needs oxygen. Remembering to breathe helps take the edge off,  so you can respond from a more centered place which over time, creates a habit of calm and mastery in effective and accurate decision making.

Stress actually serves a purpose other than survival; it lets us know where we need to loosen up, let go, and enjoy the process of life and business rather than feel bound by them. Every challenge is an opportunity, every dilemma holds a a creative solution and every heartache over time can be healed… the freedom to choose is our greatest gift, willpower our greatest tool, and “fierce grace” our greatest birthright. Self discovery and self development are the twin flames of personal effectiveness; they hold the keys to what is sacred to us. They help us create a legacy rather than just get by. They are fed by the flames of fierce grace – that intrinsic desire to express our creative genius.

Time to Shake Things Up!

by Cheryl Brewster

“The term “spirituality” lacks a definitive definition.” This statement from the online etymology dictionary caught my attention…  (see more from Wikipedia) . How ironic and appropriate to come across a term that cannot be defined except by oneself! I have often found that until I can define something, I don’t have an understanding of it;  if I don’t have an understanding of it, then I am not consciously applying in my life.

What is your definition of spirituality?

In the defining, we begin to see where we are actually living what we say is important to us.  This practice of self discovery invites not only greater understanding, but greater authenticity and accountability – we begin to see where we are being effective or ineffective, where we’re being honest with ourselves or not.

Social scientists have defined spirituality as:
The search for “the sacred,” where “the sacred” is broadly defined as that “which is set apart from the ordinary and worthy of veneration.”

This begs the question, what is sacred to you…

  • in life?
  • in business or career?
  • in relationships?
  • in how you do anything – the big things, and the little things?

Are your life, business, relationships and how you operate “set apart from the ordinary and worthy of veneration?” Or are they dull, boring,  or overcrowded with anxiety,  overwhelm, reaction or repeated ineffective patterns? Is there a sense of energy and aliveness? Does your spiritual life seem separate or disconnected from your everyday life of down to earth, practical matters like running a household or a business?

Veneration is defined as respect or awe inspired by the dignity, wisdom, dedication, or talent of a person.

  • Where are you in awe of yourself and your life?
  • Where are you inspired by your own dignity, wisdom, dedication and talent?
  • How have you defined your life in ways that hold these parameters as sacred, as non negotiable?

The act of defining spirituality shakes things up – we begin to look beyond the assumptions and perceptions of conditioned thinking or inherited beliefs or habits that have lost their life-luster.  It’s the “shake-up call” to awareness of what’s really going on and what we can do to come back to a vibrant life filled with its own dignity, wisdom, dedication and talent. It’s the “shake-up” we need to  share this vibrancy with a world that desperately needs it. We live in a time where the shift of consciousness that is occurring is so important and so needed.  Look at just a couple of statistics and we are reminded, and called to “Take Our Stand”:

  • The Global Study on Homicide reported that in 2012, intentional homicide took the lives of almost half a million people.
  • The US federal price tag for the Iraqi and Afghanistan/Pakistan wars is  close to $4 trillion (let alone the cost of all other countries involved)
  • The  United Nations reported that in 2010-2012,  nearly 870 million people, or one in eight, were suffering from chronic undernourishment
  • According to Food Banks Canada, nearly 900,000 Canadians are assisted by food banks each month and 38% of those helped are children and youth

Huh?! We live in a world gone completely mad!

  • How can this be happening?
  • How can it be acceptable?
  • What can we do to change things, to shake things up?

If each one of us took responsibility for honoring our own dignity, wisdom, dedication, talent, wonder and awe, wouldn’t we in turn, seek to help our fellow human beings? Isn’t it time we awoke from the apathy we’ve grown up in and ask those hard hitting questions?  And isn’t that what spirituality is about? As we define it for ourselves, we come to see the responsibility that we have to live from a higher place in consciousness – to engage the thinking and actions that will access creative solutions to heal our planet.

How can we make this a better world? By defining and applying our definition of spirituality… we move beyond our egos, our self absorption and limited perceptions; we begin to grasp what the mystics have been saying for thousands of years and we yearn to engage that infinite intelligence within… if indeed we are unlimited, infinite, changeless consciousness at our core, then what are we doing to demonstrate this for real-world solutions? What are we doing to “get over ourselves” so that we can instead “give of ourselves?”  I believe it begins with listening to “the call,” the call to greatness that comes to each one of us in the form of listening to a deeper, more authentic, awe-inspired place within us.  As we follow through in the commitment to do the work, we become more mindful of the possibilities… and THAT is the living, breathing, dynamic definition of spirituality… the awe inspiring experience of our infinite, changeless, effortlessness… imagine the possibilities of coming together from this amazing space of creativity to bring healing to our hurting world.

It begins one step at a time, one person at a time, with the courage to change, and none of us does this alone.  As Ram Dass said, “we are all walking each other home.”

Business Stress – 3 Ways Intuition Can Help

by Cheryl Brewster

As a conscious minded business person, your goal is to provide the highest quality products and services in the most efficient, sustainable methods possible, with customer satisfaction and healthy profit.. But what happens when challenges come up that rock your world? Our knee-jerk reactions take over. Big Time. While some reactions can be  effective, most are not.  Intuitive Development plays a critical role in catching those gut-wrenching situations and transforming them into effective learning experiences. The caveat here however, is that we must be willing to re-frame how we look at ourselves and stress.

How Intuition helps to  reduce business stress:

1. Rule number one in intuitive development is to breathe.
Over time we learn to look at breathing in a whole new way:  slowly, deeply, consciously and deliberately.
This kicks us out of the “fight or flight” sequence and gets us connected back to our body wisdom. Otherwise, the huge rush of chemicals released in the body can take over our perspective and we all know what happens… we react (based on the past) rather than respond (based on the present). Without taking time to breathe, we simply repeat old patterns again and again. We’ve heard this a million times… breathe deeply and slowly, but are we actually doing it?
TIP: Use association. Choose something that happens frequently and use it as a reminder… for example…. every time your phone rings, use it as a marker to check-in and breathe slowly, deeply, consciously and deliberately before you answer it.

2.  How would you feel if everything was really okay?
Our intuition has access to the bigger picture that the five senses don’t.  Just take a look at nature’s beauty and perfection – there’s an invisible harmony that runs our world – when we breathe into that inner harmony, we operate from a success minded perspective. Our job becomes less fear-driven and more purpose driven; by allowing this inner harmony to emerge through us, we become aware of possibilities we didn’t see before..  We think more clearly.  Intuition draws from this creative space while fear prevents our access to it.
TIP: Re-frame stress as a  signal to refocus on the inner harmony already inside of you; it builds supreme self trust and improves the thinking process.

3. How would you act if you were already successful?
Ask this simple question in any situation and see what happens! You’ll feel instant relief and guidance and find it easier to drop ineffective thinking patterns.
TIP: Make this question a new practice by using your tea or coffee break to sit with the answers. Be sure to keep a journal handy!

The bottom line: Intuitive Principles reduce stress and add an element of self discovery. They increase profit by creating a new perspective of trust and freeing up stuck energy. Intuitive Development takes time and practice but it’s affects can be felt immediately.  Our biggest challenge as entrepreneurs is to give ourselves the same time, care and attention we give to our customers. Start small and build from there… these three simple steps can have profound affects on your business!

4 keys to Mindfulness in Business

by Cheryl Brewster

Mindfulness is the act of bringing your awareness to whatever you’re experiencing in the present moment. Mindfulness is critical to successful business practices.  It increases alertness, awareness and effectiveness that comes from a higher plane of wisdom. Without  it, we’re coming from a lesser version of ourselves and our vision. We’re coming from the local mind rather than the nonlocal mind (in other words, coming from our human perceptions of appearances, rather than the expansive, creative power of our inner genius…. a.k.a., our Intuition).

How mindful are you?
Four important questions to ask yourself in regards to your business or career:

1. Am I paying attention in a particular way?
For example, am I paying attention in a particular way that……….(you fill in the blank):
… is coming from the deep wisdom/intelligence/guidance inside of me?
… in a way that is evolving the quality of my experience?
… that is in alignment with my highest ideals?
… that is allowing my highest wisdom to express itself in new ways in my business or career?

2. Am I on purpose with this thought/action?

3. Am I truly present in my business or am I distracted, stuck in the past or worried about the future?

4. Am I non-judgmental?
Example:when I become aware that I need to course correct, how do I respond to challenges or mistakes: do I shut down, react and maintain old patterns that need to be challenged?

Think of it this way; you know what you want from your business or career, but how mindfully are you really allowing and creating it? Are you coming from the local mind (personality) that is pressured by habit or judging appearances? Or are you willing to cross that discomfort threshold of stopping everything, to pause and “really” listen to the nonlocal mind – that vast, calm  guidance and knowing  inside you? This guidance knows and sees the bigger picture beyond the logical mind and always points to peace and solid solutions. When we choose mindfulness, the power of the logical mind with  self awareness and self discipline, can then serve to support – to be the faithful servant rather than the  driven, controlling task master.

We spend so much time at work,
But our level of mindfulness may be sadly lacking, especially if we’re going through a hard or challenging time. Defining what Mindfulness is to you in your business is important. One of the best definitions I’ve seen comes from Jon Kabat-Zinn who says it’s about paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.

Mindfulness helps us stay, present,
And focused, effective, on target and in flow with what builds us up and not on what tears us down It ensures we stay on track with what is best for us and our businesses; it keeps us connected to our inner business genius that we all have, whether we’re trained in business or not . It brings clarity to confusion, resolution to challenge, but most importantly, has a transformative quality that keeps building and fine tuning our intuition and effectiveness.

As Wallace Wattles in the Science of Getting Rich identified, “There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made…. The resources of supply are at the command of the man or woman who will act and think in a certain way… (but)… you must begin to live in harmony with the laws governing the universe.” In my experience, mindfulness keeps me connected to these resources of harmony and supply.. it ensures I align myself to the laws governing the universe.

Mindfulness becomes an important practice.
not always easy to initiate and like any good thing, it takes effort to maintain, however with practice, it becomes a pathway in  life that is extraordinary…. It takes us out of the mundane and into indescribable possibilities that we would have missed otherwise. It truly cultivates innovation, creativity and solutions not accessible by the linear, logical mind. And that’s what’s needed in today’s business economy, our efforts personally and locally, affect our world  globally.

Mindfulness helps us become aware of what we may be overlooking.
It keeps us in our centre… and that’s a powerful place of evolution that moves striving and struggle into doing business with more ease.  In asking the 4 questions listed at the top of this blog, we slow down, we ensure alignment with our core principles and values, we make space for what we don’t know to grow ourselves and our business.

“Mindfulness gives you time. Time gives you choices. Choices, skillfully made, lead to freedom. You don’t have to be swept away by your feeling. You can respond with wisdom and kindness rather than habit and reactivity.”  ~ Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

Entrepreneurs – Is your Vision too big or too small?

by Cheryl Brewster

http://blogtalk.vo.llnwd.net/o23/show/5/546/show_5546967.mp3

Hello fellow entrepreneurs!
Intuition plays such a key role in identifying the vision for  business and choice points along the way, including course correcting when needed.  Begin with the end in mind is the big picture vision. However we must also be willing to embrace the small vision too: those less glamorous, boring, mundane tasks that challenge our patience and follow-through.

Keeping the intuitive process clean and clear to support our vision includes:

1. Inspired, authentic action
In the coaching world, the standard question is… are you taking massive action?
The key to effectiveness is to ensure that this massive action is in alignment with our values and vision, which requires attention and time. As a Conscious Changemaker / entrepreneur, you know when you are creating that space or not. You also know that doubt or resistance to taking massive action is removed when you re-align yourself with your values and your vision.

2. Use your Imagination to be in the “feeling state” of your Vision.  
The dictionary describes vision as: vivid, imaginative conception or anticipation: visions of wealth and glory….
The more room / time we make for imagination, the more creativity / innovation are transformed into measurable results for ongoing prosperity.

3. Trust the intuitive impulse within you… be willing to do things differently
We’ve all gone through this as entrepreneurs… you’re under a deadline and need to get things done… you might be getting a little tense… your mind tells you to keep at it…your heart tells you to get up, stretch and go for a short walk.  The inner conflict begins. These are perfect opportunities to stretch your intuitive muscles… a mind in conflict with itself reveals opportunities for growth. Take a step back and remember the big picture… intuition does not communicate with a sense of desperation… the ego mind on the other hand, will. It does not like change! Be willing to mix things up a bit, be willing to go for a short walk, even a one minute walk… and in that time, refocus on your vision… remember… that “vivid, imaginative conception or anticipation of wealth and glory.”  Let that wealth and glory be here now, in the wealth of positive thoughts and the glory of feeling more at peace, and in alignment with action that comes from that inspired, authentic place within you.

Prosperity is a state of mind… your intuition is constantly guiding you to this state… it’s big! Let the mundane details be immersed in vision too… it propels you forward, from a place of gratitude, possibility and inspiration… Intuition and Vision… inspired, authentic action in the details!

Here’s some “sage wisdom” to take with you:

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”  Patanjali

All man’s well-being depends upon two things: One is the right choice of aim, the other lies in the finding of the actions that lead to that end. – Aristotle

Prosperity Thinking and Gratitude

by Cheryl Brewster

I’m so grateful for the guiding principles that have inspired my life. Introduced by Steven Covey in his popular book,  The Seven Habits of Highly Effective people, the following simple phrase is one of the most powerful intuitive tools I’ve used:

“Begin with the end in Mind.”

Take a moment and a couple of deep breaths to reflect on this concept, and perhaps you, like me, will notice the following.

Begin with the End in Mind:

  • Immediately connects you to Prosperity; that bigger picture of inspiration and possibility that is always available when you direct your focus to it.
  • Activates the flow of intelligence that dynamically transforms difficulty into “I can do it!” inspired action
  • Reveals solutions  or new directions not accesible by the logical mind
  • Brings clarity and reveals limiting beliefs that you can drop with more ease
  • Connects you to your body wisdom and visual mind’s eye, where you “just know” or “see the optimal thing to do”

As a Conscious Changemaker  building your personal prosperity from the inside out, consider these 10 Tips:

  1. Identify a current challenge in your life and focus on “the End in in Mind”; notice the ideas that “pop” into your awareness
  2. Use an intuitive journal…. write down the ideas, “knowings,” images and inspirations that appear
  3. Jot down the synchronicities that occur; how are they related to your End in Mind reflection?
  4. Use visualization to go deeper; use imagination; let the scene play out, like watching a movie.
  5. Notice that over time, positive thought and feeling really do transform fear, so this becomes a Good Habit!
  6. Use the phrase as a mantra to bring focus. It will override doubt and the gravitational pull of staying stuck
  7. Use it as a practice  to generate more personal power
  8. You will forget from time to time.  The ABC’s of Intuition will help you to remember… Aware, Breathe, Connect to the End in Mind to get back on track
  9. Practice, practice, practice!
  10. Include kindness, compassion – they accelerate the process of awakening authentic power

While intuition lies beyond the logical, rational mind, thoughts and feelings are ENERGY…. when we master our focus and feelings, we become masters of this energy…. we begin to direct it more consciously; we keep our vision on the End in Mind so that despite challenges, we take small, consistent steps forward. Those small steps comprise the big leaps possible only by being AWARE of where we are focused or distracted, so we can kindly and compassionately course correct.

We can’t underestimate the power of imagination in activating our intuition…. Einstein recalled how, at the age of 16, he imagined chasing after a beam of light and how this experiment  played a memorable role in his development of special relativity.

The Intuitive Life is comprised of benefits that begin with the End in Mind. They are many…. what are they for you? Do you, like me….

  • feel more empowered and reminded that you have personal freedom and choice?
  • remember that no matter what happens, you are tapped into optimum solution at all times?
  • build your  “commitment muscles” that over time, automatically relax those “resistance muscles”?
  • consciously, deliberately choose more fun and joy as you  awaken into your true nature?
  • feel more inspired and grateful for the abundance and prosperity that is already here?

Begin with the End in Mind truly is Prosperity Thinking and Gratitude. From that place in my heart to yours; Happy Thanksgiving!

What is Intuition?

by Cheryl Brewster

YouTube Preview ImageThis youtube video defines intuition as your inner knowing without the use of conscious reasoning…. when you have a “gut sense or just know”  important information.  Intuition is the “zest to life… what calls you to hidden delights in life (prosperity) that you may be overlooking or resisting in some way.

Important questions to ask yourself:

  • What is intuition to you?
  • Remember the last time you had a valid intuition?
  • What were you doing at the time?
  • How did you “know” this was a valid intuition?

Your own experience is the best intuitive training…. the question is, are you taking the time for it? Especially when it comes to prosperity in your life or your business?

Consider the Research
Michael Ray, PhD. has taught Personal Creativity in Business as a course in Stanford’s MBA program and shares five truths about intuition, that many business people find difficult to accept at first.  Dr. Ray believes that as people begin to apply these truths, they begin to develop their intuition in spectacular ways-in business and in life:

1. Intuition must be developed.
Each of us has intuition within us, but we must accept the responsibility for our individual style of intuition and its development.

2. Intuition and reason are complements.
It is the combination of reason, experience, information and intuition that is so powerful.

3. Intuition is unemotional.
It is paying attention clearly to the most appropriate alternative that comes from the creative Essence.

4. Intuition requires action.
Follow-through is key to successful use of intuition in business. It requires timely hard work.

5. Intuition is mistake free.
There will always be “rational” reasons to support intuitive leaps. Beyond this we must have absolute faith that the intuitive part of us does not make mistakes.

Those who accept using intuition in business do so in many ways; decision making, creative planning, product development, stress management, team building, communication, and many others. As people begin to see business as a place for Conscious Change which includes awareness of human, personal development, they begin to see advanced intuition as critical to both personal and business growth. They begin to use intuition to discover and take action on the unlimited innovative ideas that affect their personal and professional lives.

It all begins with Awareness and the Choice to develop Intuition further; to differentiate it from the voice of fear or the inner critic.  Consider the impact this could have in your personal and professional life!

If you find this topic insightful and intriguing, consider developing your intuition further as it relates to prosperity in the services offered by Cheryl Brewster of The Intuitive Life both local and online:

1. A clairvoyant reading to determine where you’re at and the possibilities at play
2. Private coaching through an Intuitive Mentor Program
3. Group Teleseminars focusing on Intuition and Prosperity
4. Intuitive Self-Study Prospecting Program

What is intuition to you? Make it count!

What is a Clairvoyant?

by Cheryl Brewster
YouTube Preview Image

The  youtube video above, explains what being clairvoyant is all about.  We are all psychic/clairvoyant/intuitive and each one of us has the capability of developing these abilities further. Clairvoyant means “clear seeing” which generally refers to the “third eye,” or the multi-sensory sixth sense over and above  our five senses.  I love encouraging my clients to use their third eye more consistently for important benefits including:

1. Increased perception
This is what allows you to “read” information and energy beyond the physical sense of sight. Remember that thoughts may be invisible but they carry an energy signature that can be read and interpreted.

2. Greater intelligence
Wouldn’t it be great to avoid potential problems by having a “heads-up awareness?”  That’s what your clairvoyant abilities can help you with, which is an important skill in any situation, particularly in business or in relationships. In hiring interviews or first dates, practice looking beyond the physical person and notice any visual images on your mental screen. What do the images mean to you or remind you of? Use intention to hone clarity; this image is appearing for a reason… what message is it conveying?  Use discernment to interpret what these images mean to you and the possible connection with this new person… how will this information help you with decision making (yes/no) and ongoing communication?

3.  Third eye focus contributes to single-minded focus.
Third eye focus helps you honor the bigger picture of your life by staying true to your purpose. Single minded/third eye focus helps to target your goals so that you are less distracted/susceptible to external influences or negative internal patterns that have unconscious negative agendas (e.g., procrastination to keep you “safe” from stretching through a comfort zone). Third eye focus supports internal self unity, healing any internal conflict with the self; those push/pulls that keep us stuck in the status quo.

To learn more and enjoy consistent, support and practice in developing the art and science of being clairvoyant, see information on the “Take Your Stand” Teleseminars designed to support prosperity by expanding and practicing the ABC’s of Intuition – the foundation to clairvoyant/psychic development.

Intuitive Prosperity in Business

by Cheryl Brewster

 

why (2Intuitive Prosperity in business is listening to your “WHY?”

I was inspired by a TED talk that shared a model for how great leaders inspire action. Basically, what it came down to was being clear about the “why” of what they do (versus the what). The talk was about branding, and because it shifted the focus from the external to the internal, I knew that intuition plays an important role.

The concept is that understanding WHY you do what you do (create a product, provide a service), and therefore being able to communicate that, will attract buyers who believe in the same WHY. A deeper connection than the product itself is created. Prosperity is a direct result of that deep inner knowing and your ability to connect with it in others.

In the talk, Dr. Martin Luther King was given as an example. King said, “I have a dream”, not “I have a plan.” So, it’s about inspiring people by making sure they know your WHY.

TOMS shoes is another example that comes to mind. This company originated from a trip to Argentina when the social entrepreneur (and Conscious Changemaker), Blake Mycoskie, saw poor children running around the streets without shoes and intuitively knew that he had to do something to help. TOMS was created to fulfill that desire. TOMS donates one new pair of shoes to children in need for every pair sold.

The business started with the WHY, has a great story, and people who buy TOMS shoes are not only purchasing its product, but also its WHY. They are more than customers. They are supporters. As a result, this business has seen notable success and shared prosperity.

The question is, how do you really get clear about your WHY? The answer to this question can be the missing link to your ability to “allow” intuitive prosperity in business.

Napoleon Hill, of Think and Grow Rich fame, writes about desire (wanting something so much it becomes an inspired, healthy obsession) and the sixth sense (subconscious Creative Imagination). Can you imagine how powerful the results would be if you could use your sixth sense to clarify the WHY, then tap into the fuel of your desire to implement steps to experience prosperity?

Answering the WHY, clarifying your purpose, and using the power of your intuition are powerfully interconnected. While it’s about reaching within to find authentic answers, sometimes it takes some help from outside sources to get there.

That’s where a professional intuitive can add value. As a Personal and Professional Intuitive, and founder of The Intuitive Life (2004), I invite you to watch the TED talk, read the TOMS story, and start thinking about your own WHY. I inspire Conscious Changemakers to increase intuitive prosperity in business by going deeper into their “WHY” through personal and business consultations, personalized Intuitive Mentor Programs and the Intuitive Prospecting Program.
