The amplified energy, chaos, fear and angst in what is called the "collective field" affects each one of us, and in today's intense times is short circuiting us, and stirring up anxiety, anger and ache within us that 1. Isn't serving us 2. Doesn't help anyone 3. Will make us mentally foggy and physically and emotionally unwell and 4. Keeps us in reactivity mode vs. in response mode, where our power is.
We just don't SEE the negative affects of the collective field until it's gotten to be TOO MUCH, and we are in overwhelm or worse, reacting from anger, anxiety and grief.
So, what do we do?
We get wise. We get aware - of both the field (what it is) and our own internal triggers and warning signals of when we are being affected.
We put practices into place proactively to strenghten our magnetic field. To release the anger, anxiety and grief. To reset our systems.
And we embrace that while we do need to be AWARE of what is happening, ACKNOWLEDGE what is not okay with us, we cannot take it all on.
I am creating this three part series of Feminine Power Time for you so you can "Lighten Your Load"... be with what is in a conscious connected way without getting flooded, sick, triggered, overwhelmed or overwraught.
We really do need deeper and elevated perspectives, and super powered practices to move through this time. That's what we do here!
Join for this episode #133 where we focus on dealing with the anger, anxiety and ache caused by the UNIVERSAL COLLECTIVE FIELD ... all the things in the culture, society, natural disasters, pandemics, environment, media, politics that are affecting us in BIG WAYS energetically, emotionally and physically and psychically, and mentally.
Then next week we will dive into dealing with the anger, anxiety and ache that comes from so much UNCERTAINTY and UNKNOWN. and the next week from the UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS of what we should be able to get done, do, produce, etc. during this time.
See below for a list of the Stay Harmonized practices I share in the episode. As well as happenings, trainings and more coming up.
Wherever you are, know you are held and guided.

Fierce Grace. If you asked me to describe embodied Feminine Power in two words i would say "Fierce Grace." When we are truly rooted in our unique expression of fierce grace we have access to our full power, presence, purpose and wisdom.
Which is why I'm finally, after two years of dreaming about it, starting this series of Fierce Grace Talks now for us. These will take place throughout the year, inviting you into a conversation with me and a being who I have witnessed embodying fierce grace in the devotion to their sacred work and in the presence publicly and privately.
Since we just literally sent my fourth book off to the printer this week, I was inspired for us to dive into how we can share our words and writing with the world.
Whether you are a writer, or want to be, or you want to write a book, or a blog, or just show up more powerfully in your authentic presence in your communications -- or just start writing for JOIY because you have something to say or you just want to! COME to this conversation.
I invited Kristine Carlson, NY Times Best Selling Author of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff for Women, founder of the Book Doula incubator and community, and a woman who has been like a big sister to me in my writing and book career to join us for Fierce Grace Talk #1: Sharing Your Words & Writing with the World"
It seems like the perfect time to pull the veil back and have a heart to heart about what writing a book is like ... how it catalyzes your personal growth ... and what support and structure is really needed. And HOW to just get started.
And to also explore at this time when so many voices are speaking out there -- how do YOU want to show up, speak up and share ? In a way that matters to you? Feels good to you? And is adding to the world you desire to create for yourself and others? This is the power of Fierce Grace.
Take us with you for a walk.. pour some tea and settle in... take us out in the sun to do some earthing, heck pour a bath or snuggle up in bed ... it's a heart to heart ... supporting us each to share our words and writing in the world in ways that light YOU up and light up those you touch.
Wherever this finds you... the words you share and the presence you share them through - in your voice, your energy, your purpose - matters. Nothing is too small, we start where we are.
You matter. Believe it.

If you were to ask me what is one of things that has been the most supportive to helping me bring my sacred work into form, grow in my career and stay true to my path, make bold changes in my life, move past my own doubt and fear to find clarity and courage I would tell you - Sisterhood. Not networking. Not professional trainings where everyone shows up and pretends they have it all together. Not the number of followers on my social media. Sisterhood that is rooted in straight up love.
Now before you go getting images of some sappy hallmark card or some kumbaya circle of women holding hands, let me invite you into a conversation that I hope will open your eyes and heart to what sisterhood is and how it relates to the real, whole life success we desire.
Because if you and I are going to make it through this transformational time, we need to elevate our understanding and our tactics for how we go about creating the supportive sisterhoods I believe we need to show up for ourselves and what matters to us... to bring our purpose and potential into form... and to stay, harmonized, healthy and happy along the way!
If you and I want to create the world we desire - for ourselves and what matters to us, we need sisterhood. And I mean need.
For the last in our 3 part series on The Power of Love, I invited a woman who has dedicated her life's work to sharing and teaching people the science, art and heart of relationship in the realm of friendship - not just in the nice see you on Saturday kind of way, but in the way that stamps out loneliness, isolation, doing it all on your own, and even burnout.
Her name is Shasta Nelson, she and I have been friends for over 10 years, and through that time have grown that friendship that stemmed from our common missions and work in the world, into a true sisterhood. And we are both birthing our new books together this year - Shasta's The Business of Friendship, focused on developing more meaningful connection within the workplace and in our careers.
This is the first of a series of Catalyzing conversations I will be hosting on Feminine Power Time, where I want invite you into a conversation with me and another powerful, soul centered catalyst for change that can take us all to another level of consciousness and empowerment.
Tune in. Pour some tea. I myself had a catalyst breakthrough - more on the podcast: The Power of Sisterhood to Create the World You D:
