I recently came across this TED talk and completely agreed: ISOLATION is the dream-killer, not your attitude.
There's only so much we can do or so far we can go when we're doing it all by ourselves…
In this talk, Barbara Sher explains how humans are wired to be problem-solvers, and soon as we get together with a group of people (especially a group we don't know beforehand) to share our dreams and obstacles, everyone else in the room will start brainstorming and offering resources on how to make it happen.
I just arrived back from co-leading an incredible group of kind and brilliant women in San Francisco for our Sacred Business Immersion this weekend...
In one of our workshops we created one of these "success" groups that Barbara talks about. I had never led something like this before, so didn't know what would happen - but immediately the miracles started occuring... women walked away with connections for where to lead retreats, collaborations for events they wished to lead, leads on homes in new states to live, a full itinerary for their next trip, a cafe to offer tarot sessions, and the list goes on...
Collaborations were made, resources were shared... it was magic to see what happened.
A few more insights that are alive in my heart after this weekend:
✨Creating beauty is a valid contribution in the world
✨Your desires are sacred, and non-attachment is equally important
✨Self-healing // filling your own cup prepares you for your greatest contribution
✨Rest is radical in our fast-paced world
✨Getting ALL of you on board to move ahead with a creative project is not only wise but necessary
✨The ways we self-destruct or treat our own bodies poorly - is a direct reflection of what’s happening to Mother Earth. When we shift that relationship, our greater collective relationship with Her can also heal.
We laughed, shed tears, opened to receive messages to the heart of our work.
We used tools for emotional healing, vision-mapped the year ahead, and shared resources to mastermind each other’s dreams.
I'm arriving home feeling incredibly full and grateful <3
