First Steps with Your Purposeful Business by Irina Benedict

1) You don’t have a business unless you have clients

Please, please, please don’t spend years tweaking your website. You don’t have a business because you have a business name, a business card or website. You have a business because someone pays for your service. Just go out and focus on getting two, three clients to start. At the beginning you don’t need a lot of clients, you cannot even handle a lot of clients.
To get these first clients send an e-mail and talk to people about your new services and ask that they recommend someone. Please remember that not everyone is your client even if you think your services could help them. Let’s say you work with parents and you help them understand their kids better. Not all parents are your clients. For someone to become a potential client they should express a concern, an issue or a desire. I give a cool example of a mistake I made when I was new in business on the radio show, be sure to listen to this episode.

2) It’s OK to give free services as long as you do it strategically

Allowing people to sample your services it a good way to introduce them to what you do, because then maybe they buy more or recommend you to others.
This is a good way to build your confidence if you are a beginner in your new trade. Be strategic about giving free sessions. Offer your services to few people who match your ideal client profile in exchange for testimonials. Be sure that it is not an undeserving feeling of not accepting money why you offer the free service instead of being paid.

I recommend giving about 3 free sessions, then start charging about half of what an experienced professional in your area charges. Do 5 sessions like this then increase prices. This is not an exact science, you can offer free sessions to influential people who value your business and may promote you in the future.

3) Patience and discipline are your best friends as you take those first steps

Build your business patiently because you are in it for the long run. You are …

Spirituality is Authentic to Ancient Western Civilization with Linda Johnsen By Dr. Paula Joyce

A constant theme in my radio show has been Unity: we are all One, we are all connected, we are more alike than we are different. What we don’t know about the history of our Western civilization puts an exclamation point on this theme. We hear a lot about the different beliefs stemming from Western and Eastern thought and religion. As it turns out, we haven’t been taught the whole truth. The Greek philosophers, who are considered to be the founders of Western civilization and scientific thought, were also masters of spiritual wisdom. They traveled to India and Egypt to study and brought back spiritual practices like meditation and beliefs including karma, reincarnation and spiritual transcendence. Pythagoras remembered his past lives, founded a successful ashram in Italy in 600 BCE and his followers strove for enlightenment. Maybe there is not a great divide between the East and West as we have been led to believe. Please join me Thursday to learn more about mysticism in ancient Greece.

I struggle By Marni

What am I going to write about? The time I struggled and showed my ass by behaving like I’d lost my mind? There are moments I feel like I’m part of the circus or better yet starring in a sit-com.  My life is far from always being full of laughter though we laugh a lot in our family.
I get tired of taking everything so seriously.  So I put on a pair of “TV glasses” and see what each situation I’m worried about, frustrated with, pissed about, and enjoying would like through the camera of a sit-com.
I discovered this solution when Eli was an infant.  I was alone and changing his diaper.  He stuck one foot in poop, then another, then his hand.  Somehow it got on my hands too.  I was by myself at home.  And as a new mom, I began to panic.  How do I figure this out? How do I get my son and myself clean without getting poop everywhere.  Every idea I thought of resulted in me seeing my son ending up falling to the floor.  All the tools I needed were in other rooms,  The thought of carrying poop from room to room with a dog and three cats standing by to enter the fray filled me with more anxiety.   My body tensed and tightened.  And then Eli began to cry.  Big surprise, right?  And then as he wriggled in more poop, for a split second I imagined my reaction if I was watching this on TV.  What was the big deal? And I began to laugh.  And as I laughed and my body loosened, Eli calmed and smiled.  I have no idea how, but somehow I cleaned us both pretty quickly and easily.  And from then on, I pulled out my “TV Glasses” during life situations.  Any caregivers out there ever experience similar situations?
Which brings me to a few days ago when again I was struggling, frustrated and a little scared.  Instead of picturing the sitcom, I cried.  I disagreed with my producer for my upcoming radio show and participated in unnecessary arguing drama.  I was not fit for human consumption and I felt it in my body. I reflected on all my “life plates” I keep spinning, my to dos.  Are these life or death “plates”? Nope.  What will happen if I don’t get EVERYTHING done? Nothing.  What am I afraid of?
Truth? Falling on my face which is FAILING. Yet even as I say that most of me is not afraid.  I know in the deepest part of me, even if I fall on my face there is a reason.  I know the experience will provide me with an opportunity.  Now truth be told.  It isn’t comfortable to fail.  So I don’t know of anyone who runs out and says Yes, I’ll choose Failure.  What I know is if I don’t choose change,  which comes with risks, and pushing out of what is comfortable, I stay stuck.
Complacency becomes another word for stuck.  Don’t make waves. Status quo.   Don’t ask a tough question because of what might happen.  Did you know stuck means you don’t get to experience the fantabulous either?
Self-esteem plays a huge role in your willingness to embrace change.  Change can have ALOT of unknown and unfamiliar feelings and factors.  So of course complacency will feel better in some aspects because you know it.  And you know your outcomes even if they are painful.
So here I go taking another leap:  1) I premiered my radio show heard globally   2) I stopped part of my business marketing which I believed until recently was the largest draw for meeting new clients.   I do not know what I’m doing next to grow my community.   I trust it will be revealed soon (there was a bit of GULP the first time I said that)  3) I am continuing to lovingly detach as a parent (more on this in future articles). Providing my son opportunities to grow and fail (as safely as I can)  4) I am visibly emerging with  live videos on social media, radio, joint ventures with other healers 5) I am learning how to do my radio show from my computer and all the mechanics and marketing (there are at least 10 things here I don’t know)  6) I am allowing in my relationship with Marc instead of listening to the voice telling me to “drive the train”.  With more leaping each week and sometimes daily.
And while some days it feels harder and some days I fail.  I am still happy everyday.  And more and more consistently, I feel an ease and a joy.  I feel a freedom like I did as a kid riding my bike super fast with the wind blowing my hair kicking my feet out as I went down a huge hill and yelling WHEEEEEEE!!!
With Love and Gratitude,

Why Wear Someone Else’s Underwear By Marni

Why Wear Someone Else’s Underwear By Marni

Do you wake up feeling great and head out into your day only to find after a work meeting or a run to a store you feel off, cranky, sad, etc.?
Does any room in your house or does your car feel off, cold or darker? If you are answering yes about any part of you or your space feeling off, you need energetic cleansing.  I want to help you and share some of my favorite rituals.
I energetically cleanse myself and my home, often if not daily.  Whether you are an open channel or just unaware,  it is easy to pick up other people’s energy unknowingly not only in your own energetic field but also in your home, your car,  or any space you visit. If you wouldn’t want to share someone else’s underwear, why wear their energy?

So what do you do to feel better?

First begin by becoming more aware of how you feel so you notice when your feelings (physical, mental and emotional) change.   I begin my day doing a quick scan of me.  How do I feel: emotionally, physically, energetically.  If you don’t know the answers to all of them, it is okay.  It will come with practice.  Daily consistency is key. 

Second cleanse your self. 

Why?  Clearing a space without clearing yourself is like mopping your floor wearing dirty shoes. 

How?
There are many approaches for cleansing yourself.  
Here is a short list.  You may like one or a couple; use them separately or together. There are no rules.,, feel what feels good to you. When you finish check in and see how you feel.  Don’t make this hard or complicated. 
 
1- begin with water in the body; 
Program a glass of water by holding it and setting an intention 
Think and drink
2-Visualization:
Create an image or a ritual of the mind that as you picture it, you cleanse.  You ask for anything not yours to be released for your highest good and cleansed off of you.
3- Prayer:
Ask in prayer for energetic cleansing
4 sage or palo santo:
Light either of these, set an intention to cleanse your self and douse yourself in their fumes 
5- music:
Sing, play or dance choosing music that lifts you up and soothes your soul (this is subjective)  
6- crystals:
Use crystal healing to cleanse your energetic field
7-move outside:
Walk, run, bike, etc feel the earth beneath you and feel your vibes raise higher.
8- Water over the body:
Shower, bathe and as the water runs over you or you submerge your body in water, know you are cleansing 
9- exercise:
Yoga, Pilates, Barre, Cycling, Running, Basketball, etc. Any form where you are moving continuously or close to continuously
10-laugh:
laughter heals your soul;
And more….
The goal is to clear your vibes and begin moving your vibration higher.  All you must do is believe it is possible to succeed.
 
Just as weather changes daily, the approach appealing to you can shift or change.  The methods you choose can also change as you learn, heal and grow, especially when you choose an extensive letting go healing like Kahuna healing. What I do today is different than what I did years ago.  I try news things and adapt my own rituals. So don’t be afraid to try something new. 

Once you cleanse you, space cleansing can begin.  And you use many of the same approaches. Scan your space first.  How does each room feel? This is super personal.  My personal fave is white sage.  It is powerful and grabs most unwanted energy.  I set a stage for myself.  I love music and play music throughout my cleansing time.  I set intentions for my space and visualize the cleansing and protection of it.  And then I walk and dance throughout my space focused on my intentions. 

Now there are times I receive intuitive messages to choose another approach or I hear I need to meditate first and I pick up some nuance to incorporate.  When I go to a client’s home, each space is cleansed uniquely.  While I may bring sage, there may be other tools I hear to help including meditations and even bubbles.  And sometimes, if there is a darker energy or a spirit to cross over, that certainly brings additional alternatives to my choices.

When you finish, scan your space again.  And notice the difference.  You may not be able to describe it right away.  It could be it just feels better.  And then yes, you’ve done it. 

As we begin this new year of 2017, I encourage you to cleanse your self, cleanse your space and look for opportunities for healing yourself and letting go of what you don’t wish to carry with you any longer.  Letting go can cleanse your soul. 
If you want to know more about this, join me  and Nami for Kahuna Healing as the first New Moon of 2017 approaches (information below).

 
With Love & Gratitude,
Marni

Adding Spirituality to Psychology to Heal By Dr. Paula Joyce

7th Wave

Dr. Janna Fond, PsyD, LMFT, is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years of extensive training and experience working with adults, adolescents and children.  She is the author of Everything Will Be OK: Blending Psychology and Spirituality to Heal Ourselves. Currently, she has a private practice in San Mateo, California where she treats adult individuals and couples. Her success with thousands of clients had been, until recently, a traditional science based approach of psychology. Following the death of her mother, Dr. Fond turned to a psychic medium who opened her eyes to a whole new way of mapping out our past, present and future lives. In, Everything Will Be OK, Dr. Fond shares her methods on how to blend the best of the psychological and spiritual worlds. 

I love when people have the courage to use their life experience to learn, grow and create what is unique and authentic to them. Janna Fond is one of those people, and she follows in some big footsteps. To do so, you have to be willing to risk ridicule from those who are not as open as you are. As someone once said to me: If you’re on the cutting edge, sometimes you get cut. I have experienced getting cut. I hope Janna hasn’t because she is definitely on the cutting edge in bringing spirituality into her psychological counseling practice. When I took past life regression therapy training from Dr. Brian Weiss, he spoke about how hard it was to come forward about reincarnation. He risked his reputation and his position as Chairman of Psychiatry at the Mt. Sinai Medical Center in Miami. Yet, if you sincerely care about helping people heal, using past life regressions and other spiritual tools can enhance, deepen and shorten traditional therapy. Please join us Thursday to learn how.

Dr. Fond has written this book as an aid to help people heal.

Vision: The Metaphysical and You by Marie Jackson

 

In this broadcast of Time Share, Marie and her regular contributor Paul Armitage tackle the elusive issue of seeing beyond the obvious. What we recognize as “real” isn’t real at all in this dimension of opposites, and our view of the glass as half-full or half-empty changes once we realize there’s no glass. Paul’s extensive understanding of “SETH” material, and his ability to put this esoteric knowledge to work in daily living, makes him a spiritual teacher with solid footing in both worlds: the obvious and the hidden.
