A Spiritpreneur’s Beach Bag of Tricks

A Spiritpreneur’s Beach Bag of Tricks

I’M BAAAAACK! After 2 months of foot loose and fancy free adventures, I am finally getting my groove back here at home and work! And it’s feeling delightful. [CONFESSION TIME] BUT . . . during the 1st two weeks of being home, I was struggling a bit to re-enter into “normal” life. I was having a tough time tapping back into the momentum and lovely flow that I’d created from myself pre-summer. Here’s what I think happened: The first 1/2 of my summer Business Savasana (aka Summer Vacation) during the month of July was filled with lots of yoga, meditation, my daily rituals and slow delicious reflection time in Kauai, Molokai and Oahu. The second 1/2 was filled with an intense 3-day backpacking trip immediately followed by a couple weeks of back-to-back adventures in China. No yoga or meditation was happening at all in August. My adventures were amazing and filled me with wonder, excitement and movement – but I wasn’t taking the time to meditate or invest in self-care for the 2nd half of my Business Savasana. What I needed was time to assimilate my experiences, listen to my soul and get back into deliberate action. SO – a few days ago I snapped out of it and committed again to my daily rituals, meditation, taking inspired action – and INVESTING in ME! And in just that short time, I can feel the sparkle and lightness returning back to my spirit. I can SEE it to.   Want a peek into my morning rituals and tools that help be stay FOCUSED, INSPIRED and CREATIVE? I open up my beach bag of tricks in...

How to Create a Prosperous AND Sacred Business [Ep: 8 THE GATHERING]

In Episode #8 of THE GATHERING, Tara Mullarkey stands firm in her conviction that “Sacred Business doesn’t mean you have to be poor.“ We invited Tara, ex-NYC corporate banker turned Sacred Business Coach, to share her strategies for creating a prosperous AND sacred business through inspired action. Why?  Because like Tara explains, “Women are going to change the planet and they can’t do it if they are poor.” We couldn’t agree more. Ideas Explored: The need to blend BOTH the masculine “doing” energy with the feminine “flow” energy. Do the happy hustle.  🙂 We are in the midst of a beautiful epidemic of awakening. Raising your vibe and tuning in is the 1st step to prosperity. The 2nd step is taking inspired action. Reach for the thought that feels good. Meditation helps us gain awareness of how we are thinking and feeling – so we can identify “what feels good”. Try this reframe: “I see evidence that (this good thing) is happening in my life. Our spiritual practice reminds us that we are connected to a bigger cosmic force and have that energy within. What is Sacred Business? – “When you are deeply connected to the truth of who you are. When you are living, day-to-day, in alignment with who you are. When you understand that you have an “assignment” – you know you are here on earth for a purpose (in this moment)” You can’t escape the need for smart and aligned marketing.  It’s essential. Fav Quotes: “We don’t need to to tailor our creative offerings to what the masses are ready for, but rather have faith in the rising consciousness of humanity” – Tara Mullarkey “The cosmos is speaking, telling us...

NOW . . before you dive into the video to get the behind-the-scenes scoop from Lisa, please take a moment to grab your own ground-level edition of Sparked!  I’ve already ordered a couple and plan to bust them out at our local Soul Sisters Rising women’s circle and my birthday party in November!
