Consider this: You career is your path. Your vocation is your calling. Which means as long as you stay true to yourself, live your design, and stay open to learning and evolving... you will make choices in the jobs you take or don't, the 'vocations' you say yes to, and the organizations and people you choose to work with that are aligned for you.
If your career is a path, that means that it will have turns, uphills, downhills, weather systems, and unexpected events. It's not a straight line or a ladder - although the over culture conditions us to believe so.
If you are a person who has dared to follow your truth, heart and deeper knowing, you have likely stepped outside of what is deemed normal, smart or successful. Good for you! That is what we do as co-creators who feel empowered vs. cogs who follow the rules or worse sharks who eat others for lunch to get ahead.
We are at a threshold and big shift in the evolution of humanity - transformation, changes, uncertainty, structures breaking down - of which we are individually a part of.
The wise ones PAUSE to consider where we are NOW and where we want to go NEXT in our careers and the vocations we say yes to. We work with the energy intentionally vs. being worked over by it blindly.
That's why we are doing this power pause series on Feminine Power Time - Wisdom for Thriving Now & Creating What’s Next.
In this episode, #207 (#2 of 3)- we will focus on your Career (path) and Vocation (calling). I will share wisdom on both as well as take you into these 3 inquiries:
3 Co-Creative Inquiries
1. Who am I working for?
2. What am I working for Now? Am I in a Shift, a Stand & Savor, an Unsure & Stay put, a Sustainability Reset, a Service?
3. What I am moving towards Next? What is the reality I desire to fully experiencing in my career and vocation three years from now?
* What is no longer sustainable or suitable to my design or today’s reality? Do I Release or Redesign?
* Where is the energy and momentum at? What do I need in the now to follow it?
Remember ... the over culture will pull you onto the go go more more more escalator or sweep you and your life force up, if you are not centered in your truth and knowing about your path, your vocation and clear on WHO you work for. Even if you say you work for yourself.
Also... We are not meant to do this alone, be lone wolves, or scouts with little to no supplies. We are meant to work in collaboration, synergy and be supported and sustained as we give our gifts and genius and live well. This is our practice, not a prescribed 7 step process :) So we apply these co-creative practices to guide they way.
See you for the conversation. Honored to be on the path with you!

New inspiration for Feminine Power Time...what I'm calling an "XO" episode ... XO from my heart to yours .. like a movie "short," it's a podcast shortie to bring forth something that moves my heart to share with you spontaneously.
I have these moments where I am feeling the energy in the world + sensing themes through the conversations I am having with conscious beings that make me feel "Oh, it would really serve us all to hear this wisdom right about now!" But instead of waiting to do a full podcast, I thought we could experiment with this shorter format. See if we like it?
This first XO short is all about getting to the heart of a pattern, habit, imprint that might be driving you - unconsciously - into overwhelm, self sacrifice, burnout, and ways of working, living, relating. One that is rooted in your self-worth and the imprints around self-worth that have been imprinted on you.
If we can't get to the root of what is causing the burnout within us, we cannot change the systemic roots that keeps us stuck in the in patterns, relationships and situations that do not support our sustainability + thriving. Nor change the systems we work and live in.
Every year around this time, I put myself on a 40-day practice to shine light on root habits and imprints that are driving me in ways that don't serve me + to shift my habits to support my wellbeing & desires going forward.
I was reflecting on the years I've done 40 day practices, and remembered that I had written about one of my profound 40 day practice breakthroughs in Overwhelmed and Over It. Specifically, the connection between our self worth & feelings of safety, security and enoughness and our inability to break free of burnout & self-sacrifice.
In this XO from my heart to yours, I will take us through some wisdom, experience and a set of inquiries that will help you shine some light on where you may be unconsciously pushing yourself way too hard, or stuck in systemic imprints you just don't know are there.
Consider this (excerpt from book and podcast):
The simple truth is this: We cannot give ourselves the space to pause or replenish, nor can we create a reality in which we can be both successful and sustained, in part because we’ve been imprinted to value ourselves based on how busy we are; how much we’ve achieved; or how hard we have to push, strive, and grind.
Or we’ve been so laden down with the reality of just having to survive, we haven’t had space to even consider the pace we’d prefer, because we are drowning, barely keeping our heads above the water.
This is true, for so many of the reasons we have stated about the way this world is currently structured; what society values; and the increasing pace and demands on us financially, physically, mentally, and emotionally to just keep up.
As we’ve said since the start, “It’s not our fault. And . . . you and I, and all the other women on this planet, are the ones with the power to change it, together.”
The way forward is this: We bravely look underneath all the push and grind to see the lies, fear, lack, feelings of “not enough,” and distorted ways we value ourselves, and heal and free ourselves from them.
We re-root ourselves into the truth of our inherent value and a real, felt sense that we are held and guided by something greater, of which we are a part. To start us moving in this direction, I have a few inquiries for you.
Let's look underneath the roots + re-root ourselves into our inherent value and connection.
See you there,

Consider this: What you focus on now, will influence the reality you experience in the years to come. What you choose to give your life force and resources to this year will show up three years from now. The choices you make around your wellbeing now - in your habits, relationships and life & work design - will show up in your health & wealth twenty years from now.
This is a natural law, which means it is naturally how things work .... and this year more than ever that's true (more on that in the podcast).
Which is why I felt compelled to create an extended power pause for us this year ... that will give you wisdom, insight and clarity on this year (the NOW) and also the coming three year cycle (the NEXT).
This power pause series - Wisdom for Thriving Now & Creating What's Next - will give you 3 inquiries per episode focused on a specific area of focus that felt like was really calling me & us to give some conscious thought, feeling and imagination to.
Why so much to do about inquiries?
It's not as much about the words we say, but the inquiries we make and dare to seek deeper wisdom for that determine the quality and reality of our lives.
Inquiry gives us insight into higher intelligence and inner truth.
We'll focus on these 3 key inquiries in this episode #206, focused on your Wellbeing & Lifeforce ... both for the NOW and for the NEXT:
I also break each of these down to make it practical and accessible for you. And end with a embodied meditation.
These are the same inquiries I make for myself. I use the wisdom that arises to make choices that lead me to what is right, real and true for me now. May these wisdom inquiries serve you to make clear, courageous and compassionate choices that keep you aligned to your path, purpose and desires.
Choose to protect and retain your life force as if it is the most essential resource you possess.
Because it is.
The systems will take everything you give them -- be an advocate for yourself by giving only what is in harmony, and being conscoius about what is no longer serving you, and what is truly enlivening you!

If you think about it, so much of the support we receive comes through the hands and hearts of other humans and so much of us not receiving the support we desire and require, also comes through our relationships (or lack of them.)
Which is why in our last in the 3 part series of "Receiving the Support You Desire & Require" we are going to and march right into the place where we have so much power to receive more support ... removing interference + opening to receive support from other humans.
I like to call this "Receiving Radiant Support" because it's the kind of support that keeps your light bright, supports your longevity of wellness and is the key to succeeding in bringing that what matters most to us in our work, purpose and lives into form.
Radiant support is also what shine the light ahead as we navigate changes, step into the unknown and manage the wobbles as we create the next and new.
This is not the time for the lone wolf, do it all yourself, or plough through.
It's not weak to need support and help from others. It's human to need a helping hand (or really hands!)
It's human to need to feel held in a bigger community and tribe.
And it's also human to have all kinds of internal interference to receiving support from others that you don't even know is there. Unconscious, distorted imprints creating more struggle and self-sabotage than you realize.
So grab your self-awareness flashlights - and let's take a deeper look to find the interference and start to move it out .... and illuminate the streams of radiant support that you need and require in this next cycle.
I will also share some of the every day practices I use to open up my capacity to receive radiant support including :
See you there,

When we think of advocacy or being an advocate, we often think of how we show up for and support others, or take stands for the causes that matter to us - which is a beautiful thing. Today, I am inviting you to turn the energy of standing for, honoring and being a voice for others towards yourself. Self-advocacy.
What would it look like this year if you chose to be an advocate for yourself?
What would it look like to so deeply honor what you desire and require, that you were willing to stay true to yourself, even if that meant disappointing another?
What would change for you, if instead of just heading straight into all the things you desire and need to tend to, create, cause and respond to, you paused to consider what SUPPORT YOU NEED?
These are the questions I am inviting you step into in this series - Receive the Support You Desire and Require this Year. And then, after tuning into your deeper truth and wisdom, start using your voice and your choices to create a reality in which you truly do receive the support you need.
WISDOM: “In times of stretch or stress, or when you are doing something new, ask for and receive more support, not less." (Overwhelmed and Over It page 175)
In this episode of Feminine Power Time, #204 SELF-ADVOCACY: Honoring What You Need, No Matter What, we'll explore:
I will take you through a guided process tuning into 4 areas of physical foundational support. This will tune into your deeper wisdom and needs about:

“We have become so self-sufficient as women that we often don’t consider the support we need, and even when it does show up, we struggle to fully receive it.”
These are the words that start Chapter 8 in my book Overwhelmed and Over It which is the chapter that gets to the root about why we push away support or don't receive the support we need, and then up burned out, and stretched too thin.
In this 3-part series, Receive the Support You Desire & Require this Year, we take a stand together to get real and practical about how we ensure you DO get the support you need, require and desire, and/or make different choices based on the resources you have.
I was going to do this as one episode, but when I felt into what would really serve us, a deeper dive into you FEELING and BEING supported on all levels came through loud and clear.
In Part 1 we will explore and dive into some of the key wisdom teachings that create the foundation for support to actually show up in and grow in your life, including:
Throughout the series, we will create space for you to tune into 5 different realms you have the power to be and feel more supported, from the inside out. These just all happen to begin with the letter P.
They all reflect the FOUNDATIONS of SUPPORT we all need at this time.
In this episode of Feminine Power Time we will explore PRACTICE + PLAY, including the structures and support that will:
Tune in. Share with a Friend. Then Support each other to receive the support you desire and require.

Every year in January I wait to do this special Feminine Power Time session until the timing feels just right. This year, it was just one week after the start of the Lunar New Year, at the phase of the moon aligned with the energy of Focusing, Creating, Intending, and Empowering Ourselves - so in alignment for this coming year cycle + the bigger 3 and 20 year cycles ahead.
2023 is a 7 year - connected to the Chariot - and a water Rabbit year - again a year that it would be wise to lead by the feminine aspects and power, with masculine structure supporting. These archetypes + what the natural cycles are indicating + the commonalities I am feeling and seeing for myself and the conscious people I know and work have formed the focus and themes for this year's session.
I’ve been thinking of you all for the past few weeks and what would emerge to be shared on the yearly “Feminine Wisdom for The Year Ahead” episode. Which is why I've waited three weeks between episodes. I always wait for the wisdom and focus to emerge ... which it did today, after I returned home from a two week co-creative trip to California.
After weeks of being in my own reflection and visioning process, watching what’s happening in the world, deepening in my own practice and listening for guidance from Wisdom with a capital W, once again, a series of ‘wisdom bytes’ - themes - flowed out.
It all popped out like a stew that had been cooking for weeks. That's letting the feminine lead, purposeful patience and stillness (listening) before moving into movement and action (which is a theme for this year especially, more on that).
Tune in for this year’s Feminine Wisdom for the Year Ahead - 2023. If you are listening to this later, no worries, it is still all relevant. It's about reading the signs all around us, feeling the knowings within us, and then being WISE about what is happening in the world and how we desire and choose to show up.
Feminine wisdom teaches us to prepare for the intensity, uncertainty, transformation and change.
Not to brace yourself for it, but to embrace it, pace yourself through it and cultivate the vitality, resilience and wisdom you’ll need to stay elevated above the fray and the chaos.
Tune in with me. And if you have some paper ... bring it to write out some of the themes I share (also posted below).
See you there!

THEMES for 2023
1. Feminine Leads- purposeful patience and movment ... hopping one hop at a time, not speeding or trying to skip steps to go forward.
2. FLOW = Intentional Focus + Intuitive Fluidity ... as we step into these next time cycles, what is at the center of the design of what you want to give to the world through your gifts/career/presence/part? What is at the center of you need to receive to be nourished, centered and sustained? What foundations are already in place that you can lean and relax into? What's calling for your heart and soul to focus and give your energy and time to, that feels good, aligned and meant for you?
3. Frequency ... What do you need to keep your frequency high this year? What brings it down or creates interference? What practices and communities do you have in place to keep your frequency high?
4. Forms ... how we do the next now will be different. Some forms to keep in mind mentioned in the podcast.
There are many things you could do this year, many things you think you should do, or maybe this year you have no idea what to do!? Or maybe you are feeling like you'd rather just pull the cover over your head.
Don't let the chaos and pressure of the world or the should's of your self-induced pressure and thoughts swirl you up. Instead turn inward, tune into your heart and dare to tap into your deeper wisdom and desires and let those inspire and guide you.
Wisdom teaches us to use the power and practice of "inquiry" to consider the path before moving into action.
Not so we can have it all figured out like an agenda or project plan. But so we can be clear on our intentions, be connected to what's really in right timing, and to see what we can't see with our eyes but can sense with our deeper intuitive knowing ... if we slow down to listen.
Wisdom also teaches us ... the wisdom is within you for your most soul-aligned path ahead, the path that sustains you on all levels - mind, body, heart and spirit. And the portal into that wisdom is not in your mental mind, it's in your heart and body.
Every year I do an episode that takes us through a series of wisdom inquires I think would serve us to contemplate, at this time.
How we start the year creates the reality ahead.
Use the practice of these 'wisdom inquiries' so you can stay focused on what truly matters, create the realities for ourselves and the world that align with our deeper truth and desires, and realize sustainable success.
This year we have a set of 4 inquiries Four is the number of structure. So you can think of this as you setting structure / focus so that the year ahead actually aligns with what matters most.
Every year the inquires are different.
Because every year, we need differently inquiries to lead us to the possibilities we haven't even considered with our limited - often fear reactive - minds.
I comb through the many inquiries we use in the EMERGE Visioning Process to find 4 to "prime the pump" and open your visioning, intention setting and focusing for the year to come.
