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!
