Ep #38: Staying Focused in the Age of Distraction

May 9, 2019

Text messages, emails, newsfeeds, headlines, Mr. Google. All day long there are rings, dings, pings, and curiosities whirling around our brains begging us to investigate. The problem arises when we spend too much effort feeding our monkey mind urges, instead of focusing on what we truly want to create in life - the things that light us up and our heart is calling us to do.

In today’s episode, we explore how getting distracted is linked to our desire for instant gratification. I offer ways to make peace with delayed gratification so you can shift into intense focus and keep your attention on your top priorities.

In today’s episode we explore:

  • The science behind why we’re so easily distracted in the 21st century
  • How to develop a habit of focus
  • What to do after periods of intense focus

Ep #35: Creating From Your Edge

April 18, 2019

Creating from your edge has many layers. On the one hand, it’s traveling to the outer edges of your comfort zone and creating from that space - pushing your outer limits. But it’s deeper than that. It’s also traveling to the outer edges of the collective consciousness to create whole new designs, ideas, solutions, and ways of doing things.

In today's episode, we explore exactly what it means to create from your edge. We explore how to identify your natural tendencies: Do you like to play it safe, or do you prefer to dangle on the brink? And in that, I offer a balanced formula for when to share and when not to share your edge with your target audience.

In today’s episode we explore:

  • What it means to create from your edge and how you benefit
  • When to do it and when to reign it in, and
  • How to create from your edge

Ep #34: When Your Biggest Dreams Get Scary

Ep #34: When Your Biggest Dreams Get Scary

April 11, 2019

You have dreams. The smaller ones are important. The bigger ones mean so much that they scare you. They scare you because of their bigness and the impact that you know they can make.

On your path to chasing your biggest dreams, a piece of you will say: give up, it's too big, and slow back down. But that's the last thing you should do.

This episode is about what to do when your dreams get very big. I recorded it on my iPhone when I was home on my family farm in South Dakota preparing for one of my biggest dreams - my Whispering Wind Buffalo Retreat that will take place here this summer.

Ep #30: Trusting Your Intuition During Life’s Dark Times

Ep #30: Trusting Your Intuition During Life’s Dark Times

March 14, 2019

It’s episode #30, so that means it’s time to tell a story. I devote every 10th episode to telling a story. Twenty one years ago, I had everything going for me. I also had a big decision to make. Should I pursue the lucrative job I had been offered, or chase my dream half way around the world?

In a moment of unexpected clarity, my life became crystal clear. I had all the answers I needed. That is when I first experienced the power and soul guiding force of intuition. Even though everything fell into place like magic, it was not a fairytale. I began to doubt. Why had I done this? How was this going to lead me to doing the work I so desperately wanted to do?

After a very dark season, spring came. With spring, my vision cleared once more, and I saw the benefit of those dark times. I have lived a very intuition driven life since then, and can now appreciate that even when the intuition is strong, life is not always easy. 

In this episode, I explore:

  • The difference between the voice of our intuition and that of our thinking mind
  • What we gain from life's darkest hours, and
  • How to trust your intuition even when it leads you through times of struggle

Ep #29: Using a Spiritual Discipline to Connect to the Soul of Your Business

Ep #29: Using a Spiritual Discipline to Connect to the Soul of Your Business

March 7, 2019

Morning routine. Miracle morning. Soul session. There are many ways to describe the process of getting still and connecting to your soul and guides to receive guidance and live more intentionally.

I love the idea of calling it a spiritual discipline as our guest Steph Lagana describes it. There is no right or wrong way to do it. There is no need to be productive. There is no expected output. It’s embodying a connection and receiving whatever may be nourishing to your soul in any given moment.

Steph Lagana is a national security nerd turned business strategist and spiritual teacher. She helps highly sensitive women get more clients and grow their business in a way that supports their soul. In this episode, Steph and I explore everything from being an empath in a warzone to using a spiritual discipline to connect to the soul of your business. We also explore:

  • What a spiritual discipline is and how to start one
  • How a spiritual discipline can work for you in your life + business, and
  • Why smaller answers are as good or better than big ones
