Please stop with this BS that magic is found outside of your Comfort Zone.

This is magic for adrenaline junkies.
I played along with it for years and years. 
For a longtime comfort was outside my comfort zone!

And yet I have found deep magic in connection with the divine, in peacefulness, in natural beauty, in the wilds of nature, floating in the Caribbean Sea looking up at the sun and the moon, the taste of a sweet mango straight from the tree, in skinny dipping with Trev under the full moon and shooting stars, in laughing with my niece and nephew, seeing kids having fun playing sport.

None of these gloriously magical moments are outside my comfort zone.

I used to be an outside your comfort zone junkie. It is fun to have your heart pounding at the mix of excitement and fear as you step over a threshold and do something new or something that challenges you. I used to do this so much that I was never in my comfort zone.

To intimate this is the place magic happens is BS.

Magic is natural beauty, is peacefulness, is wellness, is being free, is being in this one present moment.

Where’s your magic?

Create your True Business with Heart

When I was working in traditional business as the global communications director for the Homeless World Cup, I wasn’t aware that I was disconnected from universal energy, source, our life force, nature. 

It was only when facing burn out, I turned to listen to the wisdom of my heart and it guided me to a month in Antigua. Here I walked barefoot on white sand, floated in the turquoise Caribbean Sea and ate mangoes from the tree. The life force of the island brought me back to life. Only then did I realise. 

Now it’s all about creating with this creative universal energy. Letting go of trying to work it out, get it relevant, right, perfect or contain and control it. This leads me back into anxiety, overwhelm, scattered. Instead it’s all about the dance. Listening, receiving, allowing, being with curiosity and wonder, letting go of any expectations. 

Whilst traditional business is cut off from our life force, nature, from this universal energy it will continue to hurt us and our planet. We need a new business model where we create with this universal energy. It leads us from stress, exhaustion, fears of survival, greed, devastation and destruction into regeneration, harmony, wellness, vitality, peacefulness, freedom, expansion and a new world of possibility. This is True Business. 

I’d love to invite you further into the dance with this universal energy in business, to explore and embrace the wisdom and creativity of your heart with a Live Webinar, Podcast, Online Course and Antigua Retreat coming up. Take your pick and please do share with your friends too.

Have you ever wanted to do a naked photoshoot in natural beauty?

Women coming on the True Business Antigua Retreat are gifted the beautiful invitation of a photoshoot with talented local photographer Yensa Werth​ as part of her self love series.

In a hidden place in nature, with a small group of women from the True Business Antigua Retreat, you are invited to embrace your true feminine essence, to experience being your whole and complete True Self and for it to be captured on film.

It is vulnerable, brave and beautiful.
It is transformative.

When you relax into your true feminine nature there is a powerful radiance, a beauty. There is also a creative liberation, a freeing of your spirit and accompanying energy that you can pour into your True Business. You experience the courage and power to lead from your True Self. The group relationship deepens too. And you end up with a stunning collection of photographs to take home with you.

Here’s my favourite photograph from my photoshoot with Yensa to trial and create the experience for the women coming on the True Business Antigua Retreat.

I’m terrified of the Atlantic Ocean. Its intensity is intimidating and overwhelming to me. This is how I can experience masculine power in business and within me – aggressive, destructive, running roughshod over everyone and everything without a care. In the absence of the feminine nurturing essence, in the absence of the wisdom of the heart, this masculine approach in business led me to burnout, anxiety and depression.

Here in this moment I went beyond this fear of masculine power into the experience of embracing both energies equally within me. A harmony, balance, union that created a calm, peaceful, soft power within me. It also burst forth a whole lot of creative inspiration.

I’m curious, what do you see?

We returned a few months later with the True Business Antigua Retreat women and recreated this photograph with five of us. This time the waves splashing over us from the ocean and it was wild and exhilarating.

Absolutely love the magic created in partnership with Yensa.

If you’d love to join the next True Business Antigua Retreat here are the dates:
30 November – 7 December 2019 (2 places)
7 December – 14 December 2019 (Sold Out)
21 March – 28 March 2020
18 April – 25 April 2020

Peace under a grape seed tree.

Reflecting after a remarkable December True Business Retreat in Antigua.

Creative spirits were set free into newly designed expansive True Business structures – True Business structures designed from our higher natures.

All four women signed up to return next year. WOW.

There are natural, heart-led collaborations emerging between all of us.

We are letting go of old collaboration stories that left us all frazzled, pissed off, burnt out from the lack of mutual reciprocity.

There is simplicity and strength, so much strength in each woman, in each business, in the group, in my business and in the True Business model.

I’m learning that as I connect to source inspiration, show up and serve, letting go of my expectations and any attempts to manipulate and control the outcome is way beyond my imagination.

That I love listening deeply in each moment to what is wanted and needed, choosing to go with the flow, and that the more I relax the better the retreat, the deeper the connection, the more powerful the experience.

All four women loved the delight of connecting to their hearts true purpose and the certainty of success, energy and desire they now feel around their True Business.

They loved too the simple True Business model with its 3 steps of connecting to source, receiving their unique true business blueprint and taking skilful action to bring it to life.

My relaxed flexible focused facilitation style and ability to create tangible end results from the heart, the insights that spring forth from that space for everyone.

That business can be feminine and a vehicle for the full joyful expression of their creativity, make a difference and create legacy – YES!

Antigua, the magic of the island and All the beautiful places we visited, the turquoise sea, butterflies, so many butterflies. The inspiration that pours into us from the Caribbean Sea.

The magical photo shoot with Yensa at Mermaid Gardens. I’d love to share so much more about this one day but for now want to hold the mystery for future women who will immerse in this beauty and liberation.

There is so much goodness from the week that my mind has a job to process it all to understand all the different levels of connection, benefit and impact.

And I noticed my fear rising that success in my business will lead to being publicly wronged, shamed, humiliated, that it’s not safe to win, and that Im ready to let this old limiting story go.

I fell in love even more with my True Business unfolding and with the True Business Model born of inspiration from the turquoise Caribbean Sea, a Business model that has the potential to serve thousands of people to create the businesses they were born to build, to create a new way of doing business that creates wellness and fulfilment and prosperity.

It’s going to be a gift working with these four powerful, smart women with a blend of true purposes that couldn’t be any more perfect to bring our businesses to life over the next five years.

Business doesn’t have to be blood sweat and tears, hard work and burn out. It can be a blend of beauty, truth, relaxation, creativity and joy. It can be so natural to you that it doesn’t feel like work.

Join me for the 16-23 March 2019 Antigua Retreat.Katbyles.com/antigua for more info.

Wellness. Inspiration. Fulfilment.

Set up an Antigua Exploration Session if you’d like to speak, tune into your end result and make your decision.

See you in the turquoise.

Xx

This month I’d love to draw your attention to the beautiful new book just out – ‘Yoga and the Dark Night of the Soul, The Soul’s journey to Sacred Love’ by Simon Haas. This is one of those magical books that found me just when I needed it, every chapter seemed to be just right for the moment I discovered it. Don’t you love it when a book finds you like that?

Yoga and the Dark Night of the Soul offers a powerful reframe of depression. Whilst modern day civilisation is fearful and ashamed of depression, hiding and medicating it, Ancient India saw darkness as a right of passage, a calling to sacred love, a gift. This book is about that right of passage, about the journey from fear and confusion to sacred love, unveiling the four stages to that journey.

The book is full of relatable, inspiring stories from Simon’s life and the people around him as well as accessible illustrations from the Bhagavad Gita. While yoga has to some degree become part of the feel good industry and “oooh look at my amazing handstand on Instagram” this book brings us the true purpose of yoga with depth and authenticity, to follow your purpose, engage your heart in yoga practice and live a life of love and compassion. It is quite literally a breath of fresh air.

Simon spent his childhood studying Sanskrit and the sacred writings of India and his teenage years living with monks the temples and monasteries of India. This is so far away from my own childhood growing up on a housing estate in Iver Heath, Bucks that it seems other worldly. He also apprenticed with an elderly master practitioner in the Bhakti tradition for 16 years. After returning to the UK to study Law at Cambridge University he now lives in Costa Rica practicing corporate law and is dedicated to making the ancient wisdom of India accessible to modern day.  He is also the author of The Book of Dharma, Making enlightened choices.

Yoga and the Dark Night of the Soul is a beautiful book, one to keep and read over and over, as well as to flick open and take in the particular message for you on that page.  For those of us dedicated to listening to and following our heart’s it is a classic, a must have. You can buy it from Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0957518528

Antigua just got even more wonderful and expansive.

The combination of the immersion in nature and connection to the heart is a powerful tool for transformation and creativity. This will only be enhanced in a team benefiting from the synergy and synchronicity that comes in a high harmony team focused on the higher purpose and vision.

I’m very happy to share on this sunny afternoon in Bath that the two PR with Heart Online Course bursaries have been awarded to women growing The Green House Education Project in Bath and Waves for Change in South Africa.

The Green House Education Project – Anna Robinson and Cindy Adams

There is an urgent need to transform the outdated schooling system in the UK and The Green House Education Project, based in Bath, is taking action to do just that, exploring and pioneering new ways that put the children’s needs at the core. Established in September 2014 they have a geodesic dome, yurt and outdoor teaching spaces that can accommodate up to 23 children from 5-14 years old. Now they are ready to communicate the heart and vision for The Green House Education Project to a greater audience, inspire and champion further change.  Check out their approach: www.ourgreenhouse.org

Waves for Change – Hannah Fowles

Based in South Africa, Waves for Change uses surfing as a form of therapy to help vulnerable children, often from violent and impoverished communities, cope with the stress of their lives. Since 2011 over 1000 children have benefited across 6 sites in Africa and now they are excited to increase the participation of girls. What a beautiful purpose and I can’t wait to get exploring with Hannah, pouring all that creative inspiration into growing the visibility and audience so more young people can benefit. Check them out: www.waves-for-change.org

PR with Heart Online starts 5 June 2017

I spent a wonderful day yesterday with the Teen Yoga Foundation aligning with the true purpose of the organisation, opening up the vision at the heart and the positive, inspiring message it has to share.

A beautiful purpose of building creativity and well-being in young people with yoga. Already there are over 550 teachers in 20 countries working with an estimated 50,000 kids in 1000 schools, empowering children to flourish and thrive. They are training teachers, researching, advocating, opening up the conditions and opportunities for yoga to be in secondary schools. Imagine all all that blossoming creativity and fulfilment with new visions for our planet spilling out of the next generation of peaceful, balanced human beings as a result.

This is what every child deserves in school, a true connection to who they really are and support for this to flourish. Then we will have more compassion, kindness, fulfilment, with the epidemic of depression, anxiety and other mental health issues a thing of the past – it’s all about connection, connection connection.

So grateful to organisations like Teen Yoga creating real grassroots to global impact with simple powerful tools. These are the organisations we need to support, fund, invest in to create the change we are desperate for – healthy, happy humans.

May you go from strength to strength Teen Yoga, I’m very happy to play a small part in inspiring you on your way.

An invitation to the True Business Online pilot starting 27 March 2017

I’m about to run the first True Business Online Course to create your business from source, around your true nature and purpose. This way you can enjoy deep fulfilment, make a positive difference and a financial profit. And I’d love to invite you to be one of the first 10 participants to join the pilot, starting 27 March 2017.

If you are starting out in business, this is ideal for creating your business approach and ‘plan’ from source. You’ll open up your heart’s vision of the business you’re here to build, explore the product or service offering that will make all the difference to you, your clients and your business; set in place your financial structure and take the first inspired action steps to bring it to life.

If you are working in a corporate with a desire to do what you came here for, True Business is designed for you to explore and align with the business your heart and creative spirit is called to create now so you can prepare to make that transition.

And if you are already in business and it is flourishing, True Business is perfect for aligning with your purpose and pouring creative inspiration into your business, tapping into your heart for it to become the creative engine of your business.

Take a look at the True Business Online Course Outline.

I’ve been working with the True Business programme on a one to one coaching and retreat basis for a couple of years, and now it’s time to share all that goodness online making it accessible to more people worldwide who want their business to be purposeful, rooted in compassion, love and well-being. It’s all going into the book, working title: “True Business: Unleash Your Creative Spirit on the Business You Were Born to Build.” I’d love you to be part of it.

The pilot is only £95 (it will be £195) for a lifetime membership in a community of likeminded, encouraging, supportive people.  With only 10 of you in the first group (3 places taken up so far) you’ll receive a crazy amount of value with extra guidance, connection and input. All I ask is that you give plenty of feedback!

If you’d like to join us you can register here (scroll down to the orange paypal button).

Much love from a very windy Antigua!

Purpose

As I come away from the first PR with Heart Antigua Retreat with four brilliant women, the transformation is still full flight.  And I want a Polaroid to capture the highlights; only the whole week was a highlight! The creative inspiration and connection to pure source; how everything flowed so effortlessly; the dedication and commitment of each woman to their true nature and purpose – what a joy; the clarity each woman received; the life-changing insights; the beauty, the nature, the innocence; the wonderful walks in nature, long swims in that magical sea, warm-hearted local people; the power each woman discovered within them; the stunning villa and how that came to me; the excitement the women had going home because they love who they are and what they are doing in their business. It goes on….

Creative inspiration and connection to source

During an early trip to Antigua I saw a vision that stopped me in my tracks – four blue phoenixes rising from the Caribbean Sea. This spoke to me of four women called to the Island to rise into their creative hearts, their true nature, purpose and power. PR with Heart Antigua was born. From here I made the choice to create it purely from source, taking action guided by my intuitive heart, letting go of the outcome.  At one point the fourth woman was creating the money to attend. In the past I’d have frantically rushed about to get someone else just in case it didn’t come through. This time my heart clearly spoke ‘relax, it is taken care of’. The energy I used to waste and stress I caused myself because I didn’t trust my intuition. I learnt that when you receive, when you create from your higher nature in harmony with life, it is divine, it is effortless, it is who you are.

The impact before we even arrived

The impact on the women once they made the commitment to attend, before we even arrived, blew me away – their power ignited, one restructured her business; one healed and deepened the relationship with her father. I more than loved standing for their hearts, their higher nature with love, truth and compassion, no compromise. A privilege.

Life changing insights kept on coming

A few favourites came during the financial structure explorations. One woman’s relationship with money in her lower nature is ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ – masculine, driven, loads of money and most noticeably no children. In her heart, her business is providing for her large family. How many women miss out on the truth of their heart when they adopt this masculine approach to business?

Another woman, in her lower nature is working with clients that don’t belong to her with a pattern of them leaving. Because they are not her clients! In her higher nature she is working with corporate directors introducing a new creative technology into large corporate teams who go on to transform their lives and the business. With this energetic embodiment she received her first corporate client 5 hours after touching down on the runway in the UK. These are her true clients that she is here to serve. Effortless.

Coconuts

Resistance

Throughout the week one woman had an inner battle as she questioned, undermined and denied her true nature, purpose and power. The control set in as the ego rejected her truth and fought to keep her small, tightly contained, in hiding while her higher nature offers deep connection and expansion.  The pain was evident, the realisation powerful and tearful.  How often do you battle with or try to control a natural expansion? How often do you reject your intuition or heart’s desire believing you know how it will turn out and you’re not having that?!  In doing so you shut down your whole life.  Embrace your true nature, let go of expected outcomes, take the action as an offering of love, and this is life changing.

Clarity

Each of the four women went home with crystal clear clarity.  Clarity is my true essence and what I love to bring into business.  With clarity you can lean back, relax into what you are here to do on this earth. You have swift decision making saying an easy no when it is not in alignment. And you can enjoy mastery of your creative focus and the vitality, energy, fun and joy that comes with that. You can embrace and live your whole life.

Clarity

The Magic of Villa Amazing

I’d been looking for a villa with four bedrooms with no luck. Until on a September visit my return flight was cancelled and I had to leave Antigua a day later. Standing in the check in queue I got chatting to a lovely couple scheduled to fly that day. They just happened to have a four bedroom villa and were considering renting for the first time. It was perfect – 180 degree sea views, infinity pool, beautiful bedrooms, and wonderful spaces for us to work in. When the world rearranges itself around you, when magic happens, you know you are on the right track.

Villa Amazing Relax

 Villa View

Local Warm-Hearted People and Adventures

Walks with Vorn foraging for tangerines, coconut, and tamarind with stories about his grandma, knowledge of the plants and a tropical rainstorm. Taking to the sea to explore the beauty of the outer islands on our day off with Adventure Antigua, the lovely Trevor Erskine and a wind that turned the boat into flying log flume. Stewed Fish with Cavell ‘I put love in my cooking’ and pedicures with Tamara in Crab Hill, we were welcomed in as part of the local community.

Walking with VornTamara

Support from the Men

For me the new paradigm for women on earth is found where the feminine is seen, respected, held, loved and supported by the masculine. We all received this support from men in our lives to be in Antigua – be it financial, emotional or spiritual – it was deeply nourishing and appreciated.

Friendships Formed

I’m quite sure I’ll be life long friends with the four women attending keenly following their business growth with love and interest. Then there was Trevor Erskine who believed in me, and the retreat, encouraging me to create it; Kirsty MacAndrew who tuned in with me weekly to listen to intuitive guidance for inspired actions to take; Marianne Hartley, a business soul partner with regular check in’s; Victoria Player, a business consultant for women entrepreneurs who specialises in freedom based businesses who helped me feel my way practically into the new structure of my business to be based in the UK and Antigua; and Wendy Price who regularly pointed out when my ego was having a go and to return to my heart and what I’d love to create. It can take a team to create your dream. Thank you.

The next PR with Heart Antigua is 3-10 December. If your heart is called to rise in business message me kat@katbyles.com to reserve your place or book in an exploration session. I very much look forward to working with you in the divine pure source inspiration that is Antigua.

Sea Turtle Rescue

During my recent trip to Antigua a friend saved the lives of 2 baby sea turtles. And I was reminded to be present to mine.

It was my last day and my head was busy with whether I’d made the most of the trip? Had I created my vision? Was it worth the time and money? What did I need to do today to make sure I get the most of it? Let’s make a plan!

My friend patiently reminded me (again) that this is not how it works in Antigua. Here, you go with what occurs, you relax and see what the day brings. “Oh yes,” I said. This is what I love so much about it. But my thoughts marched on. So when we swerved off the road and screeched to a halt I had no idea why. “What’s going on?”

“There are sea turtles over the road.” He shouted, clearly upset. And with that questioning tone – ‘you blind or what?!’

Well, yes. I was. I had completely missed a troupe of baby sea turtles crawling over the road, as had the cars before us. Ten or so babies had already been squashed into the tarmac.

When Sea Turtles hatch at night they move towards the brightest light. In wild nature this is the beautiful shimmer of light on the Ocean. Now streetlights lining roads are the brightest light so many head towards these instead, and to their death.

My friend found one alive in the middle of the road, picked it up and took him to the sea. I called him Miracle. On the way back to the car he found another in the grasses that had not yet reached the road and we took him to the sea too. I called him Lucky. “Have a good life little fella,” he said and launched him into the turquoise glassy sea. Off he went his head bopping up and down.

Sea Turtle Escape

There I was so busy with thoughts running around my head about making the most of the day that I was oblivious to the day right in front of me.  I know I’m not alone in this. How often do you completely miss the day, the magic and opportunities right under your nose because you are busy planning in your head, worrying, working it out? And worse, how often do we cause harm?

So with the sea turtles came the reminder (again).

Drop the thoughts.

Be present.

Be free.

Live.

Join me for PR with Heart Antigua, 5-12 March 2016, a 5-day creative business retreat. Immerse yourself in the beauty of white sandy beaches and turquoise Caribbean Sea, a sacred place and time for your heart to rise and prepare to share your positive message with a global audience and fulfil your purpose. With creative inspiration, aligned with nature this becomes natural, graceful, effortless.

You are called to get out there and share the message of your heart…

But this terrifies you?

You are not alone.  More and more heart-centred leaders, especially women, are giving voice to this fear. I’m convinced it is a primal fear women are being called to move beyond, to change the story and create an evolutionary shift.

That we need more women as brilliant radiant role models, leading with love, sharing powerful, positive messages of compassion and possibility is not in question.  And the great thing is that more and more women are being called to step up and share their wisdom and intuition.  And they are.  Just that it is happening in the fringes, not the mainstream.  Yet.

Fears include being publicly shamed and humiliated (my own personal favourite), that no one will be interested, no one will listen, a fear of being killed, of being shot, of being dismissed, of failing, of losing the most important people you hold dear, and of just not knowing how to be visible in the world. And when we listen to and believe these fears they are strong motivation to return into hiding, remain on the fringes, keep quiet and tell yourself it’s not quite the time, when I’ve got a bit more money, when I….

We are waking up to the cost of hiding.  The individual mental, emotional, spiritual and financial cost of not showing up for the life you know it is true in your heart for you to live.  Then comes the cost to society with our systems absent of heart, values, emotional intelligence they have given way to corruption, rising greed and self-interest across the board – in politics, media, business, banking, sport, the list it goes on. Personally, I love the theory that if more women had been present in the banking sector there would not have been such a testosterone imbalance and limits would not have been pushed so extremely, the economic crisis would not of happened.

One explanation given for the absence of women and heart-centred leaders in the mainstream and the terror faced by women who want to step up is the five generations of witch-hunts – women burnt, drowned, tortured and killed for expressing their wisdom, heart and natural abilities to heal.  For five generations mothers told daughters to hide their true nature to stay safe, to stay alive.  Eventually, no one is left alive to remember a time when women were visible and powerful leading with love.

Flip this around as a solution and we simply need to create five generations of brave, courageous, big-hearted women leading with love, visible, powerful, sharing their wisdom and compassion and greatness. Women are ready, the world is ready, it’s crying out!  Step-by-step it can and will be done.

If you have a positive, powerful message for the world and a desire to share your true message join us for the next PR with Heart Online.  We want and need your heart-centred leadership visible in the world.

This was a lovey opportunity to share my story with Sonya Morton-Firth of discovering a different way of being in business. A way of being that leads with the wisdom and creativity of your heart, a way of being that aligns with your true nature and purpose.

True Business led me from burn out into connection, creativity and inspiration. It led me into business as a full expression of my True Self. It led me into regeneration, wellness, peacefulness, simplicity, and universal flow.

Sonya is following her passion and gift for making it easy to share your story with this a new show and interview series hosted on YouTube, exploring different ways of living and being. She is highlighting stories of people overcoming struggle, stories of people addressing mental health, stories of people finding the way that is natural and true for them. Stories of people breaking the convention.

Have a listen to this interview, come along with us to see if you relate to the path of the heart in business. I’d love to hear from you if you do. Leave a comment on the YouTube page.

Tried and tested with over 200 entrepreneurs, artists, coaches, teachers and healers in 14 countries this is a radical way of being in business that harnesses the creativity and wisdom of your heart to build a business aligned with your True Nature and Purpose. 

What wants to emerge in your True Business from the creativity and wisdom of your heart?

During one hour and 15 minutes together you will…

And I’ll share a little about the True Business School and Antigua Retreat in case you’d like to work together to create your True Business with Heart.

Business doesn’t have to be hard work, lean in, push through, make it happen, make that sale, manipulate, force, cajole and hustle your way to make that sale and meet that goal. This cuts us off from our creative, universal life energy, causing stress, anxiety, burn out.

Your True Business is so natural to you that it doesn’t feel like work. You experience creative emergence, flow, freedom, fulfilment, wellness, peacefulness, prosperity and legacy. Your True Business, the business of your True Self, is the gift to you and your clients that keeps on giving. 

Here’s what other people have experienced..

Alison Pilling, founder of Sex School for Grown Ups, working with the True Business model co-created the highly successful ‘Sex Lectures’ – inspiring evenings with speakers offering cutting edge views on sexuality, relationships and love in pithy 12 minute talks. She created a platform for important conversations that are often taboo, leadership and advocacy for the field of sexuality. 

Simon Haas, author of The Book of Dharma, working with the True Business model created a 3 month speaker tour in the UK. Invitations opened up to speak in France, Lithuania, Holland and he recently spoke at the United Nations for the International Day of Yoga and to 1000 people at a festival in Mexico. 

As a global communications director working with the biggest names in sport I experienced burn out. My heart led me to Antigua which restored my wellness and here I received the inspiration for the True Business School and True Business Antigua Retreats and a ground-breaking business the ground-breaking business model, True Business bringing wellness, fulfilment, contribution and prosperity. I moved from the UK to Antigua, created a new home, career and relationship by following the creativity and wisdom of my heart, aligning my business with my True Nature and Purpose.

Much love, Kat x
