How the July 31st BIG STAR EVENT Specifically Impacts You

The stars conspire to propel you into your future whether you’re ready or not. The lightning bolt planet, Uranus, blends with the world’s soul destiny on July 31st at 3:04 pm ET. Mars gets added to the mix for a turbo boost as if your Uranian potential needs any more impact.

These planets combine in Taurus, the sign of money, love and beauty asking you to define what abundance looks like in your daily life. How does money come into play? What kind of love supports you? Why is beauty important? Diving deeply into these questions creates opportunities and prioritizes your resources. 

Uranus in Taurus plays for keeps. Technical and scientific innovations to better the earth and all of her inhabitants comes at any cost. Uranus doesn’t seek to relieve, but to awaken. Abruptly, if necessary.

July 31st, 2022 marks an opening for a better future. Look for your Sun and Ascendant in the following signs to get prepared for one of the most powerful awakenings in history.

Aries

What it means:  Awakening is natural for you, so you love this energy. Bring on the bold new ways. Break free. You have good luck in physical activities, adventures and stepping into your leadership role. Success is upon you.

What to do: Define what success means to you. Breathe in patience when you get frustrated. Use your energy to move forward, not destabilize the life you’re building. It’s easy to stray by throwing yourself into too many things. Choose wisely.

Taurus

What it means:  It’s shock and awe time. Anything you’ve been holding onto too tightly falls away.  Now is the time to liberate yourself from the status quo. Your future is different. Period. Accept it with grace and ease.

What to do: Lighten up – figuratively and literally. Get physical. Be healthy. Seek healing. Go organic. Money and love improve when you open simple and clear pathways. Seeking comfort isn’t the answer. Get uncomfortable and know you’re on the right path.

Gemini

What it means:  You thrive on change and suddenly, it’s here. Use your brilliance to find ways to bring about the future you desire. Dive into opportunities as they’re presented. It’s time for you to share your wisdom. Speak, teach, present.

What to do: Say YES to opportunities based on your heart, not your mind. Drop into your intuition. The more you use your intuition, the deeper your connection. Weave your mind with your intuition to realize your true brilliance.

Cancer

What it means:  It’s time for love in all of the ways – self, family, partner and soul mate. All of the love you’ve been seeking comes to be. Discover healthy ways to connect and belong. Your value is appreciated, acknowledged and accepted. Open your heart and know you’re wealthier than you ever thought possible.

What to do: Take steps for self-care and self-love. Be a tiny bit selfish. Journal about the love you have in your life and make a list of other ways you want love to show up. Stay open.

Leo

What it means:  Heart-based leadership is the wave of the future for everyone, especially Leos. Generosity gives you the accolades you crave. Authenticity is non-negotiable. Be bold in opening your heart to others by expressing your truth. Seek adoration without apology. Be willing to give as much as you receive.

What to do: Practice connecting to others through your heart, not your head. Be aware of your impact on others when you speak from your heart. Your true nature is beautiful when its expressed authentically. Make this a daily exercise.

Virgo

What it means:  Living to your full potential is possible as you embody your skills and talents. This isn’t the time for humility, it’s time for knowing your true value. Be you – fully and openly. You have the expertise the world needs. Admit it to yourself and others.

What to do: Make a list of your strengths. Leverage them to explore new ways to value yourself. Make a new CV or resume. Review your accomplishments. Perhaps it’s time to ask for a raise or promotion. 

Libra

What it means:  Commit to putting yourself first in relationship. You matter and it’s about time you negotiate your needs as you typically do for others. Your long-term relationships adjust to make room for interdependence. Codependence falls away as does too much self-reliance.

What to do: Review what you desire from your committed relationships. Make a plan to capture your relationship desires. Ensure they fulfill you. Compromise is healthy when its freely given and received.

Scorpio

What it means:  You can no longer avoid intimacy in any area of your life – love, passion, shared resources, the mysteries. You’ve transformed in so many ways, now is the time to reap the benefits. Let simple pleasures and calm replace dramas and waves of heavy emotion.

What to do: Make wealth your mantra. Be grateful for the wealth you’ve created in your life. Forgive and let go of holding too tightly. Practice being deeply and intimately open and available to yourself and others.

Sagittarius

What it means:  You have a renewed exuberance for life as you find meaning through refined philosophies and strategies. Travel, different studies and new experiences abound. Opportunities you’ve been seeking come to fruition when they align with your unique gifts. Any knock-offs dissipate. It’s time to open yourself to your fullest life.

What to do: Seek to learn new things about yourself and the world. Stay on your own path. Have fun without falling prey to distractions that lead you too far off course. 

Capricorn

What it means:  Success is here. You’ve been working for so long and finally, you’ve reached the summit. All of your efforts pay off, giving you the authority, power and leadership status you desire as long as you’ve been true to your natural integrity. 

What to do: Plot your path and march forward without interruption. Keep to your schedule. Show up in leadership every day. Ask for support and rely on it. Now is not the time to go it alone.

Aquarius

What it means: Instead of being frustrated with limits, use them to deepen your ideas, weaving disparate information into more thorough solutions. You have the opportunity to use your genius for practical means. This is your time to shine. 

What to do: Review and refine your ideas. Find practical methods and uses. Bounce your discoveries off of others to create innovative solutions.   

Pisces

What it means:  Get creative. Use your imagination and artistry to create beauty, then put them in the marketplace for others to enjoy. It’s natural to receive abundance for your gifts. Let yourself be valued.

What to do: Get your creations ready for sale. Put a value on them and commit to receiving what you’re worth. It’s time.

July 31st, 2022 presents you with an opportunity of a lifetime. You don’t want to waste it. What are you willing to do to get the life of your dreams? Your future is here now – make the most of it.

August 2022: Top 7 Tips to Make August the Best It Can Be for You and Your Family

Overall

I wish I could say August is a free and easy month.

I can’t. I would be lying.

BUT, I can say knowing how to ride the wave is key to making the month work for you. There’s goodness here, you just have to know how to get it.

AND, we’ve got so much in store for you inside this forecast:

  1. TOP Tips
  2. LIVE Events
  3. Workshops
  4. Support Tools
  5. Star Knowing
  6. Resources
  7. Intuitive Type Forecasts

Supportive Intuitive Tools

Let’s look first at some tips from the oracle cards, crystals, flower essences and animal spirits and then, of course, let’s look at the stars. ✨

Oracle card: #34 – Merge

Merge, instead of release. August isn’t about releasing and letting go unless that’s your vibe. If it is, go for it. However, if letting go is hard for you, merging is your best bet.  This way, you have an active way to deal with your issue(s).

TOP Tip #1: How do you merge?  

 ~~~ WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT ~~~

We’re going to go through this in our Power Up group on August 3 at 1:00 pm ET. Don’t miss it –bring a paper and pen and the biggest thing that irks you right now…let’s change it from an issue to an asset. 😘

Crystal: Aqua Aura Quartz

Aqua Aura quartz stimulates channeling and spiritual communication. This stone allows freedom, activates the chakras and releases negativity. This crystal can enhance other stone’s healing powers.

This crystal is a multitasker, amplifier and powerful healer as it meets the energy at the appropriate level in every situation.

TOP Tip #2: Let Aqua Aura call your intentions to you.

Grab some of this delicious crystal and charge it up with your favorite intention and then let it be the beacon for you for the rest of the month. You can get it here super-fast or if you’re not in a rush, get it here.

Flower essence: Holly

This flower essence helps you let go of over-control, judgment and jealousy. Holly lessens assertiveness and anger.  It also helps you follow your own path, increases goodwill and opens your heart to have a generous spirit. 

TOP Tip #3: Lighten up!

If you’re feeling angry or judgmental, grab some Holly here. Put 3 drops in water a few times a day and watch yourself melt in the best possible way.

Animal: White Raven

White raven is pure magic and helps you stay connected to the spiritual realm. With raven, you’re confident, knowledgeable and strong. Call on raven when you want to recapture the magic of life or want to reclaim innocence and joy.

STAR FORECAST

 Big Star Events:

  • Uranus retrograde 8/24/22 – 1/22/23 to join Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Neptune and Pluto (more information below)
  • Mars is center stage this month (think lots of energy or aggravation – you decide)

Week 1: Stay Steady

Dates: August 1 – 7

The stars are just plain bonkers this week. Seriously, first it’s this and then it’s that. They’ve got you feeling all sexy and groovy, waiting for a windfall and then bam, they’ve got you questioning everything, not knowing what’s going on. I usually don’t say, “Kick the can down the road, but kick the can down the road.”

TOP TIP #4: Do 2 fun things this week.

Yup – just fun and not just one fun thing, but two.

Week 2: Balanced and focused

Dates: August 8 – 14

Energies ramp up. It’s like the slow simmer suddenly becomes a boil and you can’t stand the heat. But, you actually can. You’re used to it by now. Don’t let others get under your skin. Ignore them. This isn’t the week to smooth things or work it out with others. Everyone is testy and argumentative. They’re looking for a fight. Don’t give it to them. Instead…

TOP TIP #5:  Use the energy to make something happen for YOU.

You can leverage all of the force in the ‘air’ to succeed at something that’s really important to you. Get it done.

Full Moon: A New Way

Details: Sun in Leo & Moon in Aquarius @ 19° on August 11th @ 9:36 pm ET

This Full Moon is a story of 2 triangles. The first triangle brings energy, fortitude and forbearance – in other words, you can get through anything. The second triangle beckons the entry into the way of living and leading.  Combine the energies of both to create your life the way you want it.

~~~ FOR MEMBERS ONLY ~~~

We’re going to do a massive “Get ALL the Things” in our Empowerment Membership on August 12th at 10:30 am ET.

Not a member? Become one by clicking here.

Week 3: Solving Problems

Dates: August 15 – 21

Now is the time to solve problems when you lean into your experience, instincts and inner knowing. Your mind is still running a tad amuck (and gets more so as the week progresses), BUT you can definitely put it to work. Use that overactive mind of yours to solve problems. This is the week to work things out, bring things to a close, wrap it up.

TOP TIP #6:  Fix your #1 issue – right now.

~~~ WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT ~~~

Grab a pen and paper and let’s get to work in our Power Up group on Tuesday, August 16th @ 12:30 pm ET.

Big Event: Uranus Retrograde 8/24/22 – 1/22/23

Uranus rules natural disasters, technology, inventions, electricity, scientific breakthroughs, dictators and rebellions. He gets even more unstable and unpredictable when he’s retrograde, so be watchful. Personally, you get to choose yourself – freely without any intervention from others. When you embrace your authenticity, you take steps to gain independence and freedom. This is a time to express your true desires and to explore new ways of doing things.

~~~ LIVE EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT ~~~

Join our LIVE on our FB biz page to talk all things NEW on August 24th at 11:00 am ET. (Psst…maybe we can get Emily to channel another amazing message for us…I’ll keep you posted.😉)

Week 4: Stay committed 

Dates: August 22 – 28

The week starts off great and then gets dicey at the end. You start off feeling fulfilled and satisfied as if you can get anyone to do anything for you and then reality gives you a boost to get things done mid-week, but brings doubt and uncertainty with it. All of a sudden those feelings of “I’ve got this” turn into “Wait, what? Um…maybe, I don’t know…”

The mid-week shout out is a big Happy Birthday Virgos! 🎉

TOP TIP #7:  Commit to your end game. 

Forget everything that’s going on around you right now. Seriously, push it aside. Stay focused on what you want to accomplish. That’s the only thing that matters – your end game. Where do you want to be at the end of the year? What do you want to have done? Make strides at the beginning of the week and take time off at the end, if you have to, in order to keep yourself in the game.

New Moon: Tests of character

Details: Sun & Moon in Virgo at 4° on August 27th @ 4:17 am ET

This New Moon should be titled, ‘The New Moon of the Push and Pull’ as it tests you to the max by pushing you to your limits while pulling back the curtain of everything you’ve done or haven’t done. It’s also the ‘What have you done for me lately?’ Moon. It harkens back to 2021 with the past-future star clangs coming together once again (and lasting until October BTW).

Ask yourself 3 questions:

  1. What do I REALLY care about – deeply and unfailingly?
  2. How can I shift my thoughts to support me?
  3. What’s actually real?

~~~ FOR MEMBERS ONLY ~~~

We’ve got you. We’ll be going through all of this in great detail with practical and ritual support on Friday, August 26th at 10:30 am ET. Not a member? Become one by clicking here.

Intuitive Types Forecasts:

Don’t know your type? Take the quiz at https://www.kimwoods.com/knowyourlifequiz/ and then come back and check out how the month affects you.

Wise Strategist – You actually loathe the first 3 weeks of the month – it’s so fiery and undulating, you don’t know how to find your footing. You may be predisposed to say, “Forget this month, I’m going to take an extended vacation.” That may be your best bet if you can’t review your goals and set a path to follow by taking one step at a time. When you chunk things down into smaller segments and follow the energies detailed above, you can get a ton done this month – A TON. By the time the Sun enters Virgo on the 23rd, you feel at home once again. But, these first 3 weeks have a lot to offer you – they can get you out of your mind and into your heart and that’s going to be key in 2023.

Intuitive Visionary – You don’t mind the push/pull waviness of the month, it keeps things interesting for you. Go with it to get things done and to let things go as you see fit. Keep in mind that others really hate this energy and don’t know how to deal, so help them get through this month. Provide support in the ways that bring people closer into your world. Make sure you have your best interests at heart and aren’t just willy-nilly giving away free advice. Make a concerted effort to lead your prospects and follow through with your plans. By the end of the month, you’ll have a more robust client list.

Collaborative Explorer – It’s going to be so easy to forget yourself this month as everyone needs something from you right now. They’re flailing with the energetic push and pulls and you’re just the person who can help them figure everything out. Be this person for yourself and those who have make a commitment with you. Let everyone else either commit to working with your properly or finding others to help them. If you try to help everyone, you’ll lose sight of your own goals and end the month absolutely exhausted. This is the month you can hone your discernment skills – saying yes when it’s right for you and no when it’s not.

Ruling Warrior – Admit it – you love the fire in the stars and nothing puts you into high gear like a little confrontation (when you come out the winner). BUT, this month, the win is going to be short-lived. Stay focused on you – ignore everyone else, unless it’s a romantic partner and you’re grooving in the love vibe. Otherwise, do the other thing you love to do – succeed. Focus on your long-term goals and make headway on each and every one of them. If a goal involves others, just do your part for now. The time will come to get others involved, it’s just not now.

Creative Superstar – These fiery energies are good for your creative juices and Venus is front and center for most of the month, adding her style and flair to all of your designs. Yet, there’s enough doubt and uncertainty about where you fit into the world that has you spinning. Stake your claim at the beginning of the month by making a plan (yes, setting a schedule for each week) and sticking to it. Then, commit to following your schedule. Your schedule and only your schedule, will help you avoid getting swept up by the forces trying to knock you off center. If you do this, August is going to be a great month for you.

Loving Alchemist – Move into your power, deepen it and stay there. From this power place, allow yourself to go with the flow of energies and let others circle around you –without intention, control maneuvers or staking your claim in any way. This is intoxicating to you, so will not be easy. BUT let the magic of the prosperity season invite you to stake your claim on your abundance. In what ways are you already incredibly abundant and in what ways would you like to be more so? Make a list, create a plan and put all of your energies into making yourself more abundant. August is the month for you when you revolve around your own unique abundance.

Bottom Line:

August is a MONTH. Yet, it holds so much for you. Follow these guide posts and you’ll find yourself much better off at the end of the month than at the beginning. Otherwise, take a break, holiday or vacation.

This is going to be a bumpy month – fun and in the flow or filled with aggravation and angst. As always, it’s up to you.


Thank you for reading and sharing with family and friends.

Seriously, it would be great for you to share. Everyone benefits.

As always, wishing you joy,

July 2022: Let’s collect star power and watch your dreams easily come to life

Overall

From Annual Forecast:

You can release and heal this month. Transformation is in the air. Changes may be forced on you. Avoid the drama and desire to hold on too tightly. Can you let go of control and go with the flow? Now’s the time. You can either breakdown or breakthrough.

Supportive Intuitive Tools

Oracle card: #41 – Flow

Allow the movement and rhythm of the month to gift you with ease and flexibility. Open yourself to the rhythms and cycles of the Universe. Let yourself blossom like a flower on an early summer day. Fill yourself with the warmth of the Sun.

Crystal: Moonstone

This is a stone that channels the Moon. It attunes to the ebb and flow of the moon. Moonstone helps with stability as it balances you during the cycles of life. It represents the inner Goddess and enhances intuition. This crystal also helps you resonate with the mysteries.

Flower essence: Centuary

This is a stone that channels the Moon. It attunes to the ebb and flow of the moon. Moonstone helps with stability as it balances you during the cycles of life. It represents the inner Goddess and enhances intuition. This crystal also helps you resonate with the mysteries.

 Big Star Events:

  1. July 2nd – Mars confronts Pluto
  2. July 6th thru 13th – Mercury out of bounds
  3. July 19th – Chiron retrograde
  4. July 20th – Sun challenges Pluto
  5. July 28th – Jupiter retrograde
  6. July 31st – Uranus and Mars stir up soul destiny

The Weekly Stars

Week 1: July 1 – July 10

Mars and Pluto are just wrangling with each other. They’re up to no good. They’re making mischief in a way that’s not fun. Don’t do anything this weekend that’s going to be edgy.

After the weekend, the energy provides fresh perspectives, new ways to change institutions and different avenues to view the world. There’s a softening and soothing influence, hopefully relieving the pressure that’s been building these last many weeks. Good news may appear at the end of the week.

Weekly tip: Reach out and connect.

Week 2: July 11 – July 17

This is the week for adjustments.

Full Moon

Details: Full Moon 7/13 @ 2:37 pm ET Sun in Cancer & Moon in Capricorn

There’s a building of beautiful energy a more realistic outlook as to what it is that you’re seeing, observing and realizing in your world. What is the right path forward? Traditional structures and leadership methods or new, inclusive and grass roots constructs. Intuitive answers may lead you along the right path to making progress.

Your relationships and finances are under review. What adjustments support you in love and money? What attunements are needed for love, value and relationship. Masculine and feminine energies have the ability to weave in new and different ways.

The remainder of the week continues allowing you to tweak and refine to make your future a reality. How can you adjust your thinking to receive the love and support you desire?

Weekly tip: Strike up a conversation. Ask and you may receive.

Week 3: July 18 – July 24

This is a fiery week with lots of trying to control you and pushing you toward a crisis of some sort. You may be forced to let go of something you’ve been wrangling with for quite some time. Allow yourself to let go and feel the relief. Your mind is playing games with you. Focus on the long term.

Chiron retrograde 7/19 – 12/23

You have the opportunity for great healing. You observe old wounds and release your ties to them. You reevaluate your relationship with yourself and others in order to understand your past to give way to your future. In Aries, Chiron helps you see how your unique gifts fit into the world. Better yet, he helps you realize your unique gifts stand out and shows you how to bring them into the world – if you’re brave enough.

Chiron in retrograde in the sign is about your identity, uniqueness and ability to live in the world. He’s always a healer. When he’s direct, you have an easier time to release and let go. When he’s retrograde, you can sink in to ruminate and ponder.

Weekly tip: Get healing.

Week 4: July 25 – July 31

It’s time for fun and going with the flow. There’s a lot of energy pushing and pulling you with sudden changes and mind games. Relax into it. Take time off if possible.

Jupiter Retrograde 7/28/22 – 11/23/22

Jupiter retrograde in Aries dominates this retrograde cycle from the end of July until the end of October. During this time, Jupiter asks you to ready yourself for all of the expansion in your life. He wants you to shore up your confidence, your leadership skills and your courage. As he moves back into Pisces for the November portion of his retrograde, he calls for self-compassion and emotional support. He wants to pull back any escapist tendencies too.

When Jupiter goes retrograde. He’s basically asking, “Have you positioned yourself for the blessings, success, leadership and opportunities you want? He’s the giver of them. Jupiter brings them to you. When he’s moving forward, it’s easier to put deals together and to make things happen. When he goes retrograde, it’s optimize, streamline and efficiency time.

New Moon

Details: New Moon 7/28 @ 1:55 pm ET – Sun & Moon in Leo at 5°

The Sun and Moon aren’t the main attraction – Mercury’s dance with Uranus, Mars and the collective soul destiny is and comes into exact alignment in 3 days. The Sun and Moon urge the heart forward to move into generous and noble pursuits, however, in the collective, the pressing of ambitions may lead to greedy power grabs to protect pride and ego.

7/31 Uranus conjunct North node

BIG STAR GATE IS HERE! There’s good luck to achieve the higher expression – a massive breakthrough to ensuring an everlasting future for the Earth. (This is new earth). Otherwise, overly-sensitive or dramatic breakdown with violent behaviors and attachment to being victim. Your mind is wreaking havoc, don’t listen to it. Drop into your intuitive knowing.

Weekly tip: Choose to be surprised and delighted by what’s coming up for you right now.

July by Intuitive Type:

Wise Strategist – July can be powerful for you if you don’t hold onto your expectations of what you feel should happen and the way you want it to happen. It’s going to be different than you expect. Ask questions instead of waiting for answers. Stay curious and open by setting your plans and nimbly rearranging them. Your future wants you to be in the flow. Breathe and make refinements, adjustments and minor tweaks. You’re gathering is powerful beyond measure. Your mantra is “Allow, allow, allow”.

Intuitive Visionary – Patience is not your virtue and here comes July asking for it. Go back to the intentions you set at the beginning of the year and review your progress. What’s working for you and what isn’t? Adjust and refine to get into the razor’s edge alignment required to easily embody your future. Your ideas have stirred the collective and they’re trying to catch up. Work on something related to deepening your ideas, not expanding them. If you’re expanding something new, it’s going to crumble. Gather, intensity, define. Work your ideas in this way and watch the exploding expansion you crave come to be.

Collaborative Explorer – This month is a tough one for you as things stir up that require you to stand in your power. You feel you’re being pushed into too many uncomfortable situations. Think less about avoiding offending others and more about showing up for yourself. For more support, combine the annual flower essence of Cerato with the monthly one of Centuary.  Your inner voice becomes a confusing cacophony when you don’t follow it and this combination helps you listen and respond without your mind running amuck. Act from the heart, not the head. Make this your mantra.

Ruling Warrior – The staccato energy filled with power meets you perfectly. There are enough wins this month to satisfy, so take each one and celebrate it without looking for more. There won’t be a natural progression this month. Wins come and time elapses and then another win comes. Trust that the next win will happen. If you don’t trust, you’ll get frustrated and push your wins away. To prevent that, take a vacation or time off, if you must.

Creative Superstar– You can dance through the month by dipping into the power and using it to fuel your path forward. Some of the energies feel good and others don’t. Ask whether those that feel out of flow are even yours. If so, lean into the discovery available. If not, disregard and continue on your way. Be delighted by what shows up without judgment and July holds many treasures for you.

Loving Alchemist – This month feels luscious to you with its intensity and power. You’re at home in these energies. Savor and enjoy without trying to control. Stay in your own space and allow others to do the same. Focus on YOU with self-care measures and self-love exploration. Set up regular self-care routines for your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. If you have the wherewithal to do more, drop into your heart to ask its yearnings for bonding. See what comes into your life you’d like to explore further.

Bottom Line:

July requires adjustments, not wide sweeping changes. Throughout the month, refine what feels good to align with your best future and rid yourself of what doesn’t work. If it’s not working now, it’s not going to. Let it go and move on.


Thank you for reading and sharing with family and friends.

Seriously, it would be great for you to share. Everyone benefits.

As always, wishing you joy,

June 2022: Fortune Favors the Bold, Are You Ready for Huge Healing?

Overall

From Annual Forecast:

There is so much healing available. Will you take advantage of it or will you get frustrated by lack of progress? With discernment, get a glimpse of reality while you can. Your future is evident in your heart. Take notes on course corrections – think minor adjustments, not major ones.

Planetary Alignment – Astronomy:

Every few years, the planets ‘line up’ in the sky, while being illuminated by the Moon, so are visible without the need of a telescope.  In late March, Venus, Mars and Saturn begin aligning as Jupiter joins in mid-April. The Moon dances around the line to link up in late April and late May. Mercury joins in late June.  

Supportive Intuitive Tools

Oracle card: #23- Create

Creativity isn’t linear and the last few months have pushed you with its spiraling energy. Acclimate to it – it’s here to stay. Creation begins with your imagination, not your mind. Let your mind wander and your imagination take over. Think in questions, not answers. The magic happens in the creative spiral. What kind of magic do you desire?

Here are two ways to use this card this month: 

Intuitive tool: Lose yourself in the ecstasy of creation by listening to your favorite music, pursuing your favorite creative exploits or envisioning a rainbow and exploring each of its colors. Get out of your mind, open your heart and tap into your belly. Let your belly be your muse. Call on the Goddess Sarasvati to help. She’s always up for the creative process.

Practical tip: Do some creative writing on whatever topic suits you. Spend at least an hour to really get into your topic. Don’t research or follow any particular purpose. Allow yourself to write freely.

Crystal: Labradorite

This is a stone of transformation and magic. Awaken your imagination and creative powers by working with this stone. Use it in meditation to connect to your intuition. Labradorite asks you to be patient and to quiet your mind. The good news? It helps you do both.  

Flower essence: Scleranthus

This is a balancing flower essence bringing you from conflict to equilibrium. Scleranthus helps you make decisions, typically between two choices, without requiring advice or impulse outside of you. Scleranthus helps center and balance your internal compass instead of swinging back and forth between two options. Sometimes, the swing is wide and obvious and other times, it’s minor and obscure. Scleranthus is effective in either case.

Supportive Practical Tips

 Quick tip: Get healing. Schedule a massage, acupuncture, sound bath or your favorite healing modality.  Go to a spa. Any healing you do this month is exponentially effective.

Going Deeper:

  • Change your perspective. Ask yourself, “How am I wrong?” Instead of “How am I right?”
  • Find satisfaction with loved ones and through things you enjoy.
  • Get ready for the lightning bolt awakening on July 31st by addressing the areas of your life that need addressing. You know what they are – get to work.

 Big Star Events:

    • June 4th– Saturn retrograde- When Saturn is in Aquarius it helps you construct your life for the future and pushes you to go, go, go! However, when he goes into retrograde roadblocks may come in the form of delays, sluggish energy and health issues-all things that will give you the opportunity to determine what is important to you. During this time, he wants you to take a breath and rest, to reflect on your priorities and to give you a nudge to show up for YOU. 

 

  • June 21st– Solstice- The Solstice is the time of the year where the Sun reaches its highest point in the sky in the northern and lowest point in the sky in the southern hemisphere and stands still. It’s the still point where magic resides – the apex of POWER. We’re celebrating it by offering a free powerful prosperity cleanse. Get rid of stale blocks and amp up your prosperity flow.
  • June 28th– Neptune retrograde- It’s time for that reality check. Truths are starting to come into focus and any rose-colored glasses that you’ve been wearing are coming off now. Even though you may be feeling grounded, things feel confusing and uncertain. The only constant in life is change and Neptune is here to offer compassion and love through these times. Be kind to yourself and others as you continue to embrace your heart’s wisdom and follow its guidance.

 Supportive Events:

For EVERYONE:

Weekly tips:

  1. Choose yourself and your health. Ramp up your health routines.

Dream big and then get a glimpse of reality while you can. Your future seems evident in your mind. What do you really believe about your biggest and most heartfelt dreams? What are you willing to do to achieve them? What aren’t you willing to do? Explore ways to make your future a reality now. Take note and make any notes on course corrections—think minor adjustments, not major ones. The 5° symbolizes change and your ability to embody your goals.

What a mixed bag! Some of the stars lift you up and energizing your life for success, love and money. Other stars bring you down, making you feel alone, lethargic and a bit depressed.

Weekly tips:

  1. Release tension by going to the gym or relaxing outdoors.

Week 5: Snap Back to Reality

Dates- June 27th-July 3rd

It’s time to get back to reality. You may wish for focus and realistic insights, but when they come – it can be too eye-opening. The confusion passes, but so does the ability to wish and dream. Intensity ramps up by the end of the week. Avoid power struggles and fighting for control. There are no winners in these type of scenarios, so use your energy to further your own goals. Keep your eyes forward and stay in your lane.

Weekly tips:

  1. Be flexible with the revealing of things you may have been avoiding.
  2. Get clear on your objectives.
  3. Do not scroll social media looking for easy answers. If it sounds too good to be true, it is.

June by Intuitive Type:

Wise Strategist – June provides support, solace and relief. It also brings healing and openings to step into the best version of yourself. Use your patience to make sound decisions, but don’t let it to allow this moment to pass you by. This is one of those times where you can miss the mark. Don’t.

Intuitive Visionary – Fill yourself in at the core. Center, balance and grounding creates huge opportunity for success, love and money. Stop long enough to recognize when things aren’t in alignment and make the necessary adjustments. This can be a turning point for you.

Collaborative Explorer – Team work is still a challenge for others, so rely on your kindness to allow them to catch up. In the meantime, think of yourself and create success just for you. This month is supportive to open your power. Step into it and watch your goals materialize right before your eyes.  

Ruling Warrior – Things just aren’t moving fast enough. When you align yourself with your intuition, energy and strategy, then things fall into place. You see movement and your goals become real. Avoid power plays in the last two weeks and June creates the lift you’ve been desiring.  

Creative Superstar– June offers a beautiful creative backdrop. Let yourself sink into your creative pursuits in the 1st and 2nd week. Then, lean into the momentum the stars provide for the last two weeks. It’s still a creative time, but it’s one for outreach as well. Create and connect.

Loving Alchemist – You’ll love the energy of the Moons and the Solstice as these powerful intense moments match what you crave. However, it’s necessary that you let go of control at the end of the month. Get healing or advice to support you in allowing others to be – just be. It’s not your responsibility to step into their lanes. Stay in your own. Use this powerful time just for you.

Bottom Line:

June is filled with healing. Say yes to any and all healing, even though you may think you don’t need it. You do. Stay flexible and take advantage of the star energy pushing you toward your goals. The power is palpable. Are you harnessing the power available to you to its fullest?


Thank you for reading and sharing with family and friends.

Seriously, it would be great for you to share. Everyone benefits.

As always, wishing you joy,

Brilliance: Intuitive Knowing & Purpose Oracle

May 2022: Stay Grounded and Listen to Your Heart

Discover How the Stars Conspire to Help You Ride Out the Powerful Storm

Overall

This month has a cyclonic energy demanding you drop into your intuition to remain calm and be discerning. Charlatans and illusionists take advantage of the cacophony of chaos and uncertainty. Prepare yourself. Picture life as a chess board and you’re one piece on it. The board has gotten shaky and it’s unclear how to move forward. However, if you’ve been listening, you’ve already laid out your strategy. Trust it and follow it. Stay grounded and listen to your heart and you’ll actually stand in the center as the eye of the storm.

Supportive Intuitive Tools

Oracle card: #8-Satisfy

Despite or because of the storminess, this month is the perfect time to dive into what satisfies you, whether it be in work, play or passion projects. Satisfaction comes when you like yourself enough to follow your heart’s desires. Your heart holds wisdom, helping you with your discernment, but more importantly it inspires, energizes and connects you to the deepest parts of you. Your intuition sings when you step into satisfaction.

Crystal: Jade

Jupiter stays front and center this month and actually becomes much more intense as he dances with Pluto and steps into Aries. The plus side – you can attract all kinds of things into your life. The down side is – it’s intensity times a hundred. Jade compliments Jupiter’s energy beautifully as it softens all of the intensity coming at you, while maintaining the attractive qualities. This stone brings a sense of love and peace.

Flower essence: Rescue Remedy®

This Bach flower essences contains 5 flowers- Star of Bethlehem, Rock Rose, Impatiens, Cherry Plum and Clematis to create a pattern of calm amidst stressful situations. Allow this essence to help calm your energy during this turbulent month. Let the flowers work their gentle magic in your system to align your mind, body and spirit. You can find this essence anywhere – it’s known as yoga in a bottle.

Supportive Practical Tips

Quick tip: Go back to the basics for calming, grounding and centering. If you have tools you’ve used in the past that worked, go back to them.  Tried and true is the theme this month.

Going Deeper:

  • Start a passion project that brings you satisfaction. Lose yourself in your own creations.
  • Go back to the strategy you laid out at the end of 2021 or revisit your intentions from January of this year. You have the pillars in place – follow them.
  • The stars want you to stay in your heart, so lean into all the ways of love, both the giving and receiving ends.
  • Take time off – a staycation is the perfect solution to relieve all of the noise swirling around you.

Big Star Events:

  • May 3rd– Jupiter excites Pluto: Jupiter and Pluto love power, success and influence and when they’re dancing there is nothing you can do, except let it happen. Anything you’ve set into motion in 2018 (the last time these two planets combined their energies) can come to fruition. Gather the energy around those seeds you planted – it’s their time to blossom!
  • May 10th Jupiter enters Aries: Fuel is added to the fire on the collective stage and greed, power plays and selfishness may come to the forefront at this time. However, this energy also has great power, opportunity and potential fortune if you’re bold enough to take a leap of faith with the discernment you learned in 2021. Your best options are to demonstrate confidence, stand in your leadership and innovate based on your own creative flow.
  • May 10th– Mercury goes into retrograde in Gemini: Mercury, the cosmic communicator, loves to get naughty when he stations retrograde. Most retrogrades have their share of technological snafus and miscommunications, but this particular retrograde is amplified due to the Gemini influence. It will be even more difficult to rely messages. Mercury wants you to drop into your intuition and let it reign. He’ll do anything to prevent you from allowing your mind to run the show. Other than following your intuition, your best bet is to release what no longer serves you, revisit your strategy, review your goals, revise your next steps forward and redistribute your resources.

The Weekly Stars

Week 1: Harness the Power

Dates- May 2nd – 8th  

This is it! You have the ability, energy and power to create the life you want to live. How are you doing with that? Think back to 2018. What seeds did you plant that year? They come to fruition right here – right now. Fresh, new, exciting changes are here for you in all the ways of love, power and abundance, based on your unique definition of success. The energies give you the chance to embrace the change you want to see in yourself and inspire others through your actions. Remember, Mercury goes into retrograde next week so take some time to communicate clearly while you can!

Weekly tips:

  1. Show the love and then take the time to really receive it too.
  2. Find an activity that makes your heart sing and do it as much as possible.
  3. Take advantage of any collaborative opportunities before Mercury goes into retrograde.

Week 2: Take it Slow

Dates- May 9th – 15th

Mercury heads into retrograde on May 10th and this particular cycle may make your mind spin out of control, so following your heart will be the only way to navigate until he gets back on course June 3rd.

With Mercury up to his antics, this week might feel particularly tough as forces push you to another level of awakening, whether you’re ready for it or not. If you’re in your lane, you’ll love this momentum. If not, it’s going to be jarring. The week is complicated by a dissipating energy that puts road blocks in your path. Dig deep and go with the flow – both work for you. Dig deep into the core values of who you are and what’s important, then let go of your expectations to step into the natural flow of the Universe.

Weekly tips:

  1. Lean into your support system to remain calm.
  2. Check in daily with your strategic guide posts for direction.
  3. Take the lead if you are aligned to attract even more opportunities!

Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse: What is Real?

Details: Sun in Taurus & Moon in Scorpio 5/16 @ 12:14am ET

Leverage the energy to move toward a mature response to the push and pull of your life. Curb overly stress-inducing thought patterns that lead to overly indulgent behavior. Stop gas-lighting yourself. Stand in your decisions – let your YES be a YES and your NO be a NO.

Dive into your intuitive knowing for the answers you seek. Use the Martial and Uranian energies to take action to achieve the future you desire.

Week 3: Creative or Spiritual Pursuit

Dates- May 16th – 22nd

Deceptions and illusions abound as scandals and gossip create confusion. Don’t believe the first headline you read or item you hear as you’re only getting the partial truth. Let these energies swirl, but don’t take them in. AND absolutely do not make any big decisions this week. Now is NOT the time.  Your best course of action is to get wildly creative, dive deeply into spirituality and look at your strategy from an intuitive perspective. Develop a discipline that serves you to stay grounded.

Weekly tips:

  1. Let yourself get creative – do so in unusual ways.
  2. Go outside. Explore nature.
  3. Remove unwanted energies from your life.

Week 4: Cheers to Good News!

Dates- May 23rd – 29th

Good luck, fortune and success surges forward to fill you with optimism and ebullience. You’ll be able to attract your desires. You may find your mind sharper and able to drive you to push forward with success. Take it slow and watch your participation in relationship. Power issues come to the fore, warning you to stay in your lane.  Be intuitive, stay honest with yourself and allow things to unfold with wonder right in front of your eyes.

Weekly tips:

  1. Focus on how you wish to engage in your relationships.
  2. Avoid any tendency to try to control what’s going on around you.
  3. Be open to new possibilities presenting themselves this week.

New Moon: Intuitive Discipline

Details: New Moon in Gemini 5/30 @ 7:30 am ET

Gain the ability to influence your thoughts, instead of letting them lead you astray. Your mind is a tool you have the power to yield. Notice how your mind takes the lead and train it to be a passenger. Your intuition is poised to create flashes of brilliance and genius insights. Discipline yourself to develop your intuition through regular routines and frequent practice.

May Energy for Intuitive Types:

Ruling Warrior: Honestly, you’re going to hate this month. The energies feel as if they’re pushing you forward, but don’t materialize easily or swiftly. This is a time of patience and deep dives – two things that aren’t your favorite. You hate watching from the sidelines, so get athletic to burn off frustration. Better yet – take a staycation and get things done around the house.

Intuitive Visionary: This month is frustrating as flashes of brilliance and ideas are still coming, but don’t form as quickly as usual. Also, bringing them to fruition is more difficult than it should be. Coordinate with a designer to add creativity to your new insights or refine those out in the world to provide more possibility in the coming months.

Wise Strategist: If you lead from your heart, this month actually satisfies you. Let your mind relax, so not to succumb to the chaos and uncertainty. Allow yourself the space to breathe and just be. Remember – heart first, intuition second and mind last.

Creative Superstar: You love when Mercury goes into retrograde because it’s a big heart opening, giving you permission to drop into your creativity. Splurge! Relish the opportunity to stay in your creative flow. This month lets you lean into solitude, so take advantage to gather your energy for a renewed entrance into the world in June.

Collaborative Explorer: Communications are tough and connections aren’t easy. You may initiate a collaboration or project, but it’s unlikely to come to fruition. You feel the hidden agendas and power plays circulating around you, frustrating your efforts. Execute with care. Let things play out in front of you without attachment.

Loving Alchemist: You will LOVE this month! With the depth of Pluto’s energy, combined with sinking into love and diving into intimate conversations, you feel right at home. Honesty is revered right now. Take advantage by going deeply inward and embracing all the luscious energies that are available to you.

Bottom Line: May is a rough month, there’s no need to sugarcoat it. Instead of being swept up in all of the false things presenting around you, take the opportunity to go inward, review your progress and strategize your next moves. You’ve already established what your core values and put your pillars in place. Stay in alignment and Let your mind relax and not succumb to the chaos and uncertainty. await forward momentum in June.

Blog Family Financial Freedom: Prosperity & Love Self love Trust

Keep Calm and Carry On, even with COVID!

So this week I am trying to wrap my head around my daughter testing positive with COVID. She is absolutely fine, no symptoms whatsoever. In fact we only know she has COVID because every Sunday, since the beginning of September, part of our new Sunday ritual is getting out the lateral flow kits and carrying out a test. Normally we do this, report on the website and carry on with our day. But not this weekend!

Firstly there was a dramatic scream, and then the youngest sat down and went very pale. “Don’t worry” I shout, in a far too positive voice to mask my surprise, “maybe it is a faulty batch.”  We get out another box of lateral flow tests and the whole process is repeated again. The test starts to reveal the result of two lines and not one; there are three of us standing over it, as if we can will it to be different. This time we have tears. The thing is, it isn’t the result of two lines, it is the panic of, what will happen to me? Where have I caught it? What about my dance lessons and seeing my friends? This is the fear that may have hit many of us as we work out what next and face the fear of COVID arriving in our homes.

It is the fact that this result is going to impact not just her, but her family. It is an emotional response of fear and panic that her life is unknown. Her well planned routine and “normal” is now feeling like chaos and the gentle waves of life, that gently roll in and out, have gotten rather turbulent out of nowhere.

There are so many things racing through our heads right now. My thoughts are including a list of things that I now need to do if my child tests positive, but also combined with, is she ok? Is anyone else in the house positive? But also include, the washing machine is beeping, the dog needs letting in and when shall I put the roast dinner in the oven? I continue to be amazed with the way that I can be in an emotional chaos and still be logical at the same time. 

After calming her down with lots of hugs, explaining it will all be ok, followed by popcorn on the sofa and a good movie, I stepped outside on my own. For me chaos is just part of life. It is the lack of control in a situation that we have to adapt to. Life isn’t about controlling things, it is learning to live without control. So why outside? Because it is an instant way to get me out of my head and into my body. It is all about engaging with the senses. I am no use to anyone if I spiral out of control with everyone else’s emotions and panic, as it will result in me stomping around being shouty and that is going to give me a headache and get them upset.

So outside I breathe in the air and feel the change of temperature in my nose and on my skin. I stop now and take one deep breath and as I breathe out intentionally letting go of all that has just happened in the last 45 minutes. As I land in my body I notice the world that appears around me, the amber leaves on the ground, the smell of the log burner smoke from the chimney, the sound of children playing in a neighbour’s garden. I am now back in the real world of calm and openness. This is the place to now re-enter the house and deal with all the next steps. The crisis that I left now just feels like something to be sorted and coped with.

All the calls were made, instructions were then dished out and the chicken was put in the oven. Did I need to get all caught up in the whirlwind of COVID, well no, but I’m human. I was responding to the whirlwind of emotions of my children and my reaction to something that felt like a crisis at the time. We react to situations emotionally, mentally and physically. We have to show compassion and kindness in situations to others but also to ourselves. There are no tears now and we move into this week knowing that virtual lessons are part of our lives again. So calm can be found in and amongst the chaos of situations, but we have to remember to take responsibility and make ourselves calm. It isn’t someone else’s responsibility and we owe it to ourselves not to be caught up in the emotional and mental whirlwind of situations, for our well-being, as well as for everyone else around us. Less drama all round. 

Getting out of other people’s fears and upset is so important, in order to help ourselves. We can find compassion in the calm and it is a reminder that we don’t have to get caught up in crisis mode all the time. 

As we move into the Holiday Season this is a helpful reminder to just check in with myself to remember that if chaos arrives, to just take a few moments to get back into my body so that I can deal with whatever unfolds with compassion and discernment.

As this post goes out, we have a new variant and an increasing number of people who we know are caring for loved ones or are sick with COVID. Our thoughts are with you and we wish every one of our readers that you are able to keep well and those who are poorly, a speedy recovery. Rest and listen to what your body needs and when you are feeling stronger get outside when you can, get to soak up the supportive energies from nature and breathe in the calm.

The 2022 Forecast is now available. In it Kim mentions the importance of using our intuition and getting into alignment. When the world is struggling with fear, remember to keep centered and in your own lane. Don’t let the mind get carried away on a journey into an unhelpful place, bring your attention back to your heart, breathe in the seasonal, lunar and astrological energies and use these to support you. “The stars give you the support you need to thrive instead of survive” (P.13 Forecast 2022 K.Woods) Download your forecast here for more information on getting the most from 2022.

If you have a way that helps you shift back into Keeping Calm and Carry On, I would love to hear all about it. 

Wishing you a magical Day,

Steph

What Does Powerful Leadership Look Like These Days?

Typical leadership models focus on masculine skills

Typical leadership models focus on masculine skills. Think about it,  even the most powerful women and women-identified leaders lead with this masculine model. Women contort themselves to focus, compete, drive & strive and work with limited resources. 

Women have become successful with this typical model and have had to, up until now. 

Now? 

It’s time. 

It’s time for women to use their natural strengths

Combining women’s natural strengths with masculine skills raises leadership to a whole new level. 

How powerful leadership really works

Working with your natural gifts is key to being a successful leader day-in and day-out. When you’re fighting your natural tendencies, leading becomes draining. So many women are working against their innate gifts, so operate in suboptimal capacity and become aggravated or burn out. 

It’s true for men too, but they may not realize it as readily as they are still operating within their natural skill set. 

However, how many men feel powerfully successful as leaders

I can tell you as I’ve worked with hundreds – not many

Why is this true? 

Men are working against the energy available to them. 

Let’s look at the most powerful leadership energy. 

The most powerful leadership quality

The most powerful leadership quality is the combination of the feminine and masculine traits. 

This powerful quality is available to everyone and works with both the yin and the yang simultaneously. The feminine trait is the yin to the masculine’s yang.  These combined traits propel you into powerfully successful leadership, if you let them.

You require both to be wildly successful. 

How can you use both the feminine and masculine traits? 

Recognize the feminine traits are different than masculine. It’s just that simple and complex. Feminine traits are cyclic, receptive and commanding. Masculine traits are static, forward moving and demanding. 

Working with both is the key to powerful leadership success.

I’ve created a simple formula to combine the feminine strengths with the masculine skills and I call these The 5 Power Pairs.

The 5 Power Pairs

Integrating the two trait signatures makes for powerful leadership. The feminine strengths involve intuition, potential, cyclic rhythms, connection and creation. While the masculine skills involve the mind, control, expansion, competition and production. 

One attribute set is no better than the other, but each requires both to get lasting results. Powerfully successful leaders are brilliant, charismatic and leave a legacy while making tremendous impact and living in financial freedom. 

What is the simple formula that can make you a powerful leader too

Here are five power pairs of the masculine skill + feminine strength to give you the resulting outcome. 

  1. Mind + Intuition => Knowing & Brilliance 
  2. Control + Potential => Influence & Charisma
  3. Expansion + Cycles => Sustainability & Legacy
  4. Competition + Connection => Collaboration & Impact
  5. Produce + Create => Infinite Resource & Financial Freedom

If you are curious about learning more about cultivating powerful leadership success, join me in my Million Dollar Strategy group on Linked In. 

Being a powerfully successful leader makes you irresistible

When you incorporate the combination of feminine and masculine energies into your leadership strategy, you become irresistible to the marketplace. 

Who doesn’t want to work with someone who is equally collaborative and appropriately competitive? Who attracts abundance easily and readily?  Who produces and creates amazing services and products and gets results?

When you blend both the feminine strengths with the masculine skills, everyone wants to follow you and hangs onto your every word. Your charisma becomes known in the marketplace. 

As you elevate your standing, you increase your sales conversions because your prospects have already convinced themselves of your worth. As you increase sales, you command more authority to make greater impact. 

The growth cycle is obvious and it all begins with combining the feminine strengths with the masculine skills. 

The time for powerfully successful leadership through the 5 power pairs is now. The stars say so, and as I’m on a first-name basis with the stars, I have to say now is the time.  

 Looking for more? Jump on a call. I’ve got so much more to share with you.

xXx, Kim

Why the True Know Like Trust Factor of Business is Way More Than Marketing and Sales

In another article, I’ve mentioned the True KLT Factor as a revolutionary secret to being a huge success. We’ve all heard about (or are very familiar with) the KLT factor in business and how necessary it is. Experts say that having your audience know, like, and trust (KLT) you is the most important thing you can have in business. While it is important, my belief is there’s a different place to start. 

What if I told you the starting point was actually knowing, liking and trusting yourself first? Just like bringing the Divine into your business (more on that here) is a matter of internal power giving you power externally, knowing, liking, and trusting yourself first works the same way. The TRUE KLT Factor is all about knowing, liking and trusting yourself first before your audience/customers do. Once you know what it truly means to KLT yourself, you can bring in the typical KLT the business world has ingrained into our heads. 

The KLT Factor the experts say we need

The typical KLT model for business says that in order to be successful you have to get your audience to know, like and trust you before you can even think about converting sales. There are a lot of classes, webinars and workshops in marketing that teach  this concept and how to do it just like the experts. And, the experts aren’t wrong.

To have success in business, you have to convert sales or get clients to buy your services and/or products. So of course your audience needs to KLT you. Being genuine, transparent and honest is important and it’s a good way into the hearts of your audience.

Think about your favorite brands, stores, authors or anyone you’ve done business with that you keep going back to. Why are you going back to them? Our favorite brands have a certain reputation perhaps or position among the market. They are the best of the best. They might command respect. They might be the top leader or visionary. I don’t believe they became giants with stark raving fans simply because they were just trying to get sales. They know, like and trust themselves and their products/services, what they stand for and what they are all about, first and foremost. 

There’s a way to make the depth of KLT even more delicious and magnetic and that’s to truly know, like and, trust yourself first. KLT is good. It’s necessary. But True KLT is better. Here’s what True KLT can look like. 

The True KLT Factor

Ask yourself this: How are you going to get anyone else to KLT you if you don’t KLT yourself? If you lack trust, confidence or belief in yourself, how do you expect someone else to do it for you? Everything starts internally and it is necessary for the traditional external KLT to work. I break each section down so you can understand the internal portion of KLT.

Know

What is it to know yourself fully? You want to step into that self-awareness of yourself. So when you do that, you absolutely want to be looking at things you are comfortable with, satisfied with, and thrilled with. Things you want to be really proud of and their strengths and their super powers and all that groovy-goodness. It’s taking that mirror and going in; when that mirror is reflected back at you, what do you see? Think about what you are passionate about and what makes you happy and how you find your joy. Those are three different questions and three different answers. These are all things to know about yourself. What I often ask my group members when talking about this is: Who are you at midnight when no one is watching? 

Like

When we like ourselves, we accept ourselves—the good, the bad, and the ugly. We can be really, really open about talking about ourselves and who we are. I bet you like yourself a lot. I bet you can say, “You know what? I really like myself. I like my friends, the life I have. I like myself as a person.” But what it boils down to is this: How much do you show yourself that you like yourself? Do you take care of yourself? Do you date yourself? Do you let yourself be enchanted? Do you ever pause and celebrate yourself? How much you show that you like yourself, whatever they may look like, is the real indicator as to how much you like yourself now.

Trust

Trusting your intuition is 100% something you can do on your own. You can practice doing it by making decisions with authority and when you see it come to fruition it proves to yourself that you were right. Each of these moments of “proof” fosters inner trust.  But trust, real trust, is not something you can do on your own. Trust is between people. Trust is totally in the heartspace. The mind is the reflector of trust. The mind is a good measurement, so to speak. The mind brings you into judgment, fear, doubt and the fear of missing out (FOMO). It’s following somebody else’s path because it worked for them and they were successful. 

When I talk about trusting yourself, I say it’s all about you and your uniqueness. Every single pathway to success is different. If you’re judging people for having a lack of integrity, look at yourself. If you’re judging people because they are gossipy, look at yourself. I’m not saying you are a gossip, I’m saying it’s trust. And it is a lack of trust in yourself, when you are looking at people externally. You have to look internally. When you build trust in yourself, you can build trust in others. It’s a beautiful lattice that just builds on itself. 

Using the True KLT factor to help increase your marketing and sales

When you truly KLT yourself, you become a magnet. Your sales become beautiful. You become the brand, speaker or author people are attracted to and come back to for more. This is where you turn back to the typical KLT factor in business. It will come naturally to your audience because you fully know, like and trust yourself. Imagine the power you will have! You won’t have to get your audience to KLT you because you’ve done all the work for them. Stepping into the world and your business, saying YES to yourself will only make your audience say yes to you, too. 

Following your instincts, developing your intuition, and listening to your inner voice is all part of the true KLT factor. This is the starting point. You must look internally in order for the external to be powerful. Things in business will come easier to you when you are truly the person you are meant to be and have that power. Your audience will be drawn to you, and your teams or employees will LOVE working with you. That translates into a full, satisfying, delicious life and business—which is what you want right?

Legacy: Leadership & Power

The best business partner is the Divine Business Partner

Have you been living your life based on the definitions other people made about what success is and what it looks like? Have you been building and operating your business based off of someone else’s roadmap? 

Believe me, you’re not the only one. We look up to those who are successful in business and decide that since they did it this way, this is the way it has to be done. If you have found success that way, that’s great. Who doesn’t want success? I’m not knocking on that, but I do want to let you in on a secret (one of three actually). There is another way you can reign in even more success and fulfillment then those you’ve been following. Doesn’t that sound delicious? 

I want to begin by addressing mindset. There is a lot of talk out there about mindset. Mindset is beautiful and I love it; but mindset is only the first step. We have to leverage the power of our mind with the power of the Divine. Stick with me here. 

How would it feel to be fully confident in yourself and the decisions you make for your business, life and opportunities that come your way? What if I told you that passion, power and prosperity integrated with your business strategy, leadership and growth were the key to unlocking more success? Intriguing, right? Having the Divine as your business partner uplevels you and your business. 

Mindset is Only the Beginning

If you have a closed mind, or a mind filled with doubt or fear, you are not going to be leaning in and saying “show me the money” right now. You are going to be weaving and rolling around with that doubt and uncertainty. Having a growth mindset or open mindset to receive abundance, joy, success, that is the first step.

Mindset is a beautiful gift but also a weapon. When I talk about that, people tend to take a step back. Our mind is programmed to protect us. As our mind is protecting us, our mind doesn’t want us to deal with anything unknown, or anything uncertain or anything unfamiliar. Think about what is going on right now, everything is unfamiliar, uncertain, and unknown. The mind is in overdrive. 

We can love our minds because it is doing its job, but its job isn’t about taking that leap of faith. Its job isn’t just going with the flow and saying everything is going to be groovy-good even though it doesn’t actually know. The mind tends to freak out on us. 

I love that people are talking about mindset. It is gorgeous. But it’s also only 30% of the equation. Because even if you’re open minded (or growth-minded) to receive more, the trust and faith you need to do the thing that will actually bring more to you, well, that’s where the brain is going to go “Hold up, I don’t think so.”  So, yes, get your mindset taken care of. Make sure you’re open. Make sure you’re ready for growth. Then, take the next step. That’s where all the goodness lies.

Shifting the Paradigm

As I’ve said before in a different article here, the typical paradigm for business is to be entirely cognitive (or in your head/mind). We use data, rationalizations, quantifications, and formulas for business decision-making and strategy. We establish goals and ways to accomplish those goals. We get formal training that tells us how something should be done, because “that’s the way it is done.” These are all great tools, but it leaves out instinct, feelings or other sensory input we can receive if we cultivate it. Here is where I bring in the Divine. 

I define Divine as the unknown, unseen, and unfamiliar presence that is felt and can be accessed when you truly connect. It’s the gut feeling that you have when making decisions and taking action. Making those decisions based on values and personal goals, dreams, desires and intuition. This is where you can have the Divine as a business partner. You need the Divine in your business. 

Connecting to the Divine can give you superpowers. Now, I’m not talking comic-book superpowers, but individual power. You will have power in:

  1. Decision making
  2. Aligning with support and opportunity
  3. Creating products and service offerings
  4. Attracting your Soul-Mate client
  5. Drawing raving fans

With all those superpowers, how are you not going to see success in your business? So here’s how these two really work together. There are three pairs. 

How the Divine Meets your Business in Application

There are three Ps I connect to the Divine (remember, that’s  the unknown, unseen and unfamiliar). Those Ps are passion, power and prosperity. But how do you apply those words and integrate it all into business? I partner each of the Ps with a business aspect. 

Strategy/Purpose

The business aspect of strategy focuses on your mission, vision, values, philosophy approach and the pricing matrix. It is very straight-laced and corporate. To merge your strategy with the Divine is for you to get into your purpose, intuition and to not be the tumbleweed that is rolling down the desert road. It isn’t just about mindset. It is getting into making clear/definitive decisions, having clear focus, being aligned with the flow so you can be in your lane. People talk about values but they don’t make them a pillar of their business strategy. What values do you embody and what values do you intend? What is your purpose on this planet? And you have to be really aligned with the Divine to answer that question. The Divine gets you crystal clear and focused which informs your business strategy. 

Leadership/Power

Typical business aspects of leadership focus on the 10 roles of a manager – only two are about work and eight are about people. There are also varying leadership styles around communication, decision-making, authority and organizational structure. To merge with the Divine, you have to own yourself. You have to have confidence and know your self-worth so you are clear internally that you have the authority to make stuff happen. It isn’t focused on caring about whether or not people like you. Yes, you can care but it isn’t a big deal anymore. It is more about being respected and that empowers how you lead, make decisions and stand in your own authority. 

Growth/Prosperity

Business is all about growth, scalability, marketing, outreach, external communication, visibility, being a money machine, having something that you can sell. Now, that is a great list and yes, they are all important but having growth, just for the sake of growth, isn’t going to lead to prosperity. You have to be in alignment with opportunity and support. Being an unbelievable collaborator and working with others brings you tremendous growth and prosperity. You have to actually be on the impact side of being generous, giving referrals, testimonials, and moving into a position of influence. Command your own stage and have influence over it. Trust your stage and get rid of the money issues. When you are in abundance (personified) and have love and are open to your creativity, you will uplevel the power of the business aspects that we know of as growth. Focusing on the internal will only make the external more powerful. 

You don’t have to live the status-quo

You have the choice to operate your business and your life differently. Break the mold, change the pattern and shift the paradigm. There is no reason to lack passion, fulfillment and ease because someone once said (or you told yourself) that there is only one way to do things. Or because someone else said that success was accomplishing ‘this’ or ‘that.’ It starts with you. 

Starting with your mindset is important, but it isn’t where you stop. Having the Divine as a business partner completely changes and scales your business. You shift the paradigm from “it’s how it has always been done,” to using the superpowers of the Divine. Marrying the three P’s – passion, power and prosperity – with your business applications will inform your strategy, leadership and growth. 

With the Divine as your business partner you will reach your dreams. This transformation starts with you—the internal only makes the external more powerful. Looking for more? Jump on a call. I’ve got so much more to share with you.

Discover Three Revolutionary Secrets to Being a Huge Success

Accomplishment and success aren’t the same. An accomplishment is something you do that is revered and rewarded. Success is the feeling of a job well done. Both can be defined by someone else and when that happens, you’re likely checking off boxes and creating an outer life and business by someone else’s design. If you’re not establishing your own definitions of success and achievement, you’re operating from someone else’s roadmap.

You’re not alone. Most of us accept the paradigms and paths provided to us by others that have gone before us. This is pretty much childhood, right? Doing things based on our parents or family values, traditions, ideas, etc. And then you go to college or get your first job and the models are now your professors or employers.

Time passes and we come to find we aren’t happy. We aren’t satisfied. We aren’t feeling successful or accomplished even though we look fantastic on paper. Our resume is delicious with achievement yet our minds are full of doubt and our hearts full of emptiness and our lives feel more like a game of charades than living.

Have I struck a nerve? (I hope so because I live for pushing people beyond their comfort into the zone of transformation. This is how it begins…) You are tired of playing at life and business the way everyone else says it should be done. You are dissatisfied with traditional business models and leadership. You want to shake things up just to feel like you’re actually living.

You know what else? You don’t have to accept the way things are.

You can have passion, fulfillment, ease, and feel successful, not just play the part. I’m constantly seeking change for my clients and creating solutions for them. Shifting paradigms is pretty much my jam. Here are three revolutionary secrets (and shifts) to being a huge success in your inner and outer life plus your business.

REVOLUTIONARY SECRET 1: THERE IS A PLACE FOR THE DIVINE IN YOUR BUSINESS

Say what now? I hear you asking. “The who in my what?”

You heard me. There is a place for the Divine in your business. And before you get all caught up thinking, “This is way too woo for me,” hear me out.

First, I define the Divine as the unknown, unseen, and unfamiliar presence that is felt and can be accessed when you truly connect. It might be the gut feeling you get when you meet someone for the first time, or the instant knowing that something isn’t quite right or that you’re right on the brink of getting that thing you’ve been eyeing. Think about it: you’ve had times like this and likely dismissed it as nothing.

The typical paradigm for business is to be entirely cognitive (or in your head/mind). We use data, quantifications, formulas, and rationalization for business decision-making and strategy. We establish metrics, goals, and measures. We go for formal training which is really just a fixed set of data someone says we should have or need to have to claim we are x. These are all amazing tools, but it leaves out instinct, feelings, or other sensory input we can receive if we cultivate it. This otherworldly input is otherwise known as intuition and derives from the Divine.

When we include the Divine in our business, we find our way to passion, purpose, fulfillment, and the power and ease of prosperity. This gives you superpowers in decision-making, alignment, creativity (for products or services), high levels of energy, soul mate client attraction, and stark raving fans. Just to name a few.

Let me just note here, that changing your mindset or disrupting limiting beliefs is not enough to move away from your headspace and into your heart space for connecting with the Divine. Our mind’s job is to protect us. It’s not for taking that leap of faith- you know, those leaps that often have great reward on the other side. We should love our mind and use it, of course, but it’s not the only tool at our disposal. (More on this idea coming soon in another article.)

REVOLUTIONARY SECRET 2: THE TRUE KLT FACTOR IS WAY MORE THAN MARKETING

We’ve all heard about the necessity of the KLT (know, like, trust) factor in business. Everyone always says you must get your audience to know, like, and trust you before they’re going to buy or convert to a sale. Classes, webinars, and experts in marketing will go on and on for hours about the importance of this principle and ways to go about doing it well.

Here’s the TRUE KLT factor: it starts with knowing, liking, and trusting yourself. Not the other way around with your customer knowing, liking, and trusting you first.

(Did your mind just explode a little?)

Lean into this idea for a moment. How are you going to get anyone else to KLT you if you don’t KLT yourself? If you lack trust, confidence, or belief in yourself, how do you convince someone else to do it for you? KLT begins internally and it’s necessary for the traditional KLT to work. You must follow your instincts, develop your intuition, and listen to your inner voice. (See the aforementioned section about getting out of your head.)

Imagine the power over your business and life – forget just marketing and sales – when you know yourself so intimately, and are so confident about who you are and what you provide to this world, your colleagues, your clients, your network, your community…You become the magnet, your sales become beautiful and fun conversations and your teams or employees LOVE working with you. That translates to a full, satisfying, prosperous life and business which is what you want isn’t it? It’s the pot of gold on the other side of the rainbow.

REVOLUTIONARY SECRET 3: POWERFUL LEADERSHIP REQUIRES FEMININE ENERGY

The last revolutionary secret to huge success is the most important of all. Great and powerful leadership requires feminine energy. Our typical leadership models are all masculine in energy, even women or women-identified leaders lead with this energy. Leadership paradigms have not yet made space for the feminine way.

But too much of any one thing is always a hindrance. Masculine energy by itself falls short. There is a better and more balanced way. Leadership has room for both and really requires it. Feminine energy is the yin to masculine energy’s yang. There is a fusion of these two that makes for powerful leadership (and I’ll give you more on this in an upcoming article.)

The time for feminine energy is now. No, really. The stars stay so. (And I’m on a first-name basis with the stars.)

When you incorporate feminine energy into your leadership strategy, you become irresistible in the marketplace. Everyone wants to follow you. People hang on your every word, or anxiously wait for the next time you’ll say something. They’ll devour the material you put out there as soon as it’s released and then they’ll buy. Your sales conversations are fun because your prospect has already convinced themselves of your worth.

You don’t have to accept the way things are.

You have one life to live, so make it your best. There’s no reason to lack passion, fulfillment, and ease because someone once said (or you internalized) that there was only one way to do things or there was only one definition of success and it looked like this. You have the choice to operate your business and your life differently – to break the mold, change the pattern, and shift the paradigm. I just gave you three revolutionary ways to begin.
