Soul-Hive Sessions

Every Friday morning * 9:30-Noon * Austin TX * Starting January 2019

Learn who you REALLY are.

Remember your sovereignty.

Answer the question…WHAT AM I CALLED TO DO?

 

Let me give you a little back story here. For the past few years I have been receiving powerful messages, nudges and hard-to-ignore coincidences regarding Mary Magdalene. I have a deck of cards at home called Keepers of the Light. For the past year, almost every time I pull a card from here, it is this one:

MARY MAGDALENE

TEACHER AWAKENS

You have something important to share. Follow the inner call. Don’t let anything stop you.

I do have an inner call. It’s been there since I can remember, being reinforced more with every passing year. After becoming a Life Coach and a new mother, I heard a whisper in my ear that my company would be called “Soul-Hive” and my calling was crystalized: to bring seekers together and empower them, making the magical real, bridging the space between mystical and practical, and collectively raising the consciousness on this planet.

Since then, I’ve led retreats and workshops and had countless one on one sessions with seekers around the world. It’s all been delicious, and it’s all led me to this. An ongoing, in-person, divinely led, weekly series of Soul-Hive Sessions for women here in Austin.

I have decided there are just too many juicy topics to cover in one stand alone workshop or weekend retreat. And for me, the only meaningful way to do this is by creating a container for us to come together face to face, heart to heart, with inspiring, open-minded people. A place where we can be curious, get raw and go deep, building a hive of sorts, buzzing with new ideas and collective shifts that benefit all.

If you’ve worked with me before, you know that we never know just where we’ll end up once we get started. So I am creating a container, a continuum of curiosity, so that we can build each week to the next. There’s sooooo much to talk about. Each week we’ll have a new topic/exercise/situation to examine. Some might appeal more than others. That’s natural. Come and go as you see fit. The idea here is to let your inner compass be your guide.

Community Healing Circle - Soma Vida - April 2018

Who’s ever walked into a room before and felt an instant icky feeling? Or felt absolutely drained after talking with a gloomy coworker?

Trust that you’re exactly where you’re meant to be, showing up exactly how you should, at exactly the right time. Allow yourself to bloom in YOUR own unique way. It’s the hardest, and easiest thing in the world. ♡

“Working Like A Dog” Maybe Ain’t So Bad

1443100516240-1-1I’m sure most of you have heard the expression “working like a dog” which probably conjures up the idea of someone slaving away, working long, tedious hours, feeling absolutely miserable. But have you ever actually watched a dog work? Maybe a sheep dog herding a flock? Or hounds on the chase of a scent? They are mad with excitement, going all out to accomplish their goal. They might technically be “working” but don’t tell them that. This type of work feels like play, and they can do it All. Day. Long. That is, until they completely collapse with exhaustion. That’s when the “rest” comes in; right up until they wake the next morning eager to do it all over again.

If we’re in our zone, staying present, we will only ever feel like we’re in one of these 2 states – Rest or Play. That’s why people say things like “Find something you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” It doesn’t mean these people aren’t exerting incredible effort. It just means they are enjoying it. And just as important as feeling joy from your daily actions, is honoring your body when it tells you its had enough. This rest is essential. Without it, we wouldn’t be in any state to find joy.

So the next time you’re around a sheep dog, or a 2 year old for that matter, take some pointers because they get it. Play hard. Crash hard. Repeat.

Breastfeeding Bliss

BB projectIn the fog of early motherhood, I’m a little embarrassed to say how easy it was for me to get caught up checking my phone or watching some mindless tv while breastfeeding my son. It got to the point when he’d be finished feeding and I wouldn’t even realize it because I was engrossed in the latest FB feed.  At some point I remember having a real moment when I didn’t have any electronics around and instead just watched my son with my full attention while he was nursing.  It was magic. Pure magic. The way his hands moved.  The sweet sounds he would make. Watching his mouth move in perfect rhythm with each gulp. I grew more in love in that moment than I thought possible. It was pure bliss watching this miracle in my arms as I gave my precious baby every single thing he needed to thrive. I felt powerful and strong, with love overflowing…along with my milk, which came in stronger than ever.

From that moment, a little seed was planted within me.  I knew that I did not want to take this special time for granted any more. And I started thinking there are probably many women just like me who might be missing these precious moments in a similar sleep-deprived, overly stimulated state. That’s why, in honor of National Breastfeeding Month, I decided to create some tools to make it easier to keep this “Breastfeeding Bliss” alive and well. The health and emotional benefits for mama and baby are just too priceless to miss.

I have several tools – videos, apps, cards – that are in progress for all mamas, whether you’re breastfeeding, pumping, or simply feeding your baby the best way that you can. I am so passionate about this! I wish they were already finished. But I am a blissed-out mother of 2 small kiddos after all, so please be patient as I savor this super special time with them. I’ll squeeze in these important projects as quickly as I can. It’ll be worth the wait!

Sign up for my Soul-Hive newsletter to be the first to know once they’re finished, and to get some cool freebies.

Raising Your Vibration To Match the Abundant Laws of the Universe

I came across this post today on “Wake Up World” and I just had to share. It’s discussing how we can raise our vibrational frequency which is what Soul-Hive is all about. The important caveat is not to confuse prosperity with money – they are NOT one and the same.  Once you realize that, and can tap into the higher frequency of your true authenticity, then that’s where the magic happens.

Read some interesting excerpts from Nanice Ellis’ article below:

“The Law of Prosperity – How to Make It Work for You”

There is not just one law in the Universe that governs all. There exist multi-level laws in our Universe. Your personal vibration dictates what laws apply to you and your life, at any given moment. This means that we cannot expect higher laws to serve us when we are not a vibrational match to those laws.

The laws of the Universe are subject to our personal versions of reality, which is dictated by our thoughts and beliefs which in turn creates our individual vibration. Your vibration is an energy that you emit which is a magnet to the world around you.

Most of us associate money with prosperity but money is simply a symbol of prosperity in our physical world. Money may measure prosperity but money is not and can never be prosperity. You cannot eat, drink or breathe money. Maybe there is so much scarcity around money because intrinsically we know that money is not prosperity and we keep looking to it as if it is. We can never have enough money to feel prosperous. The outward search for prosperity is an alignment with scarcity.

In fact, the outward search for anything is an alignment with scarcity.

The point is, first become fulfilled inside and then you can see what you really want – which has everything to do with prosperity.

If your thoughts are negative and you often feel down, your vibration is low. The law of prosperity exists on a higher vibration – if you feel happy, positive and energized, you are likely vibrating at a higher vibration. The law of prosperity will not come down and meet you. If you want this law to work for you, you must rise up to meet it. You must raise your vibration in order to invoke the Law of Prosperity.

Our ego-minds tend to look for what is missing or lacking and this aligns us with scarcity, but you are not your ego-mind. You can make a conscious choice to place your awareness on the abundance that is already in your life – right now – things like air, water, nature, love, kindness, food, wisdom…. Thinking about having an abundance of air to last your whole life and having unlimited love to share, can make you feel incredibly prosperous.

When you experience yourself as prosperous, you raise your vibration and you align with the law of prosperity. You get what you give. When you give off a vibration of prosperity, the Universe gives you more prosperity.

Finally, the law of prosperity is the law of love. Vibrate with love and you are infinitely prosperous. This means love life, love what you do, love your family, love your friends, love who you are, love the planet, love the Universe. Find anything and everything to love. The more you love, the higher you raise your vibration. The higher your vibration, the more you will naturally tune into the vibration of prosperity, but don’t be surprised if you discover that the Beatles were right all along, and “All You Need Is Love,” because Love is All You Need.
