It can look and feel like this….

 

Here’s Katherine Lucarz, Business Growth Consultant, and Sophie Cleere, Yoga Teacher, at Villa Amazing sharing their Antigua Retreat experience. Both are now pioneering their original work after a gentle but powerful transformative shift. They are building successful businesses wholeheartedly aligned with their true nature and purpose with energy, enjoyment and expansion.

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There is an urgent need to transform the outdated schooling system in the UK and The Green House Education Project, based in Bath, is taking action to do just that, exploring and pioneering new ways that put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

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!

Antigua Retreat New Dates

I’m super happy to announce two new dates for the Antigua Retreat, a 5 day business retreat to immerse yourself in Antigua’s natural beauty, connect to source inspiration, and allow your creative heart to rise so you can grow your business naturally with grace and ease.

For four women ready to lead with heart in business, the new dates are…..

Saturday 2 December 2017 – Saturday 9 December 2017 

Saturday 3 March 2018 – Saturday 10 March 2018

After 5 days harmonising with nature and your own true nature, a fresh creative vision and natural pathway for you and your business opens up. One that is deeply true for you. You know this exists but your creative spirit, heart and intuition is so often ignored with the demands of every day life, challenging doubts and fears. As you relax and allow your true nature to lead, what was previously challenging becomes inevitable. Opportunities open up for you to create your business from your higher nature, bringing deep fulfilment, universal support, financial success and joy.

So if the Antigua Retreat is speaking to you then book in a complimentary Antigua Exploration Session. Here we dive into the vision of what your heart will create during the Antigua Retreat and if it is compelling and true for you to be there.

You can find full information for the Antigua Retreat here.

See you in the turquoise. x

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.

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.

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.

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.

I sat watching Trump address Congress, according to him from his heart, and my commentary went something like this.

“What is this muppet show!? Why are they even cheering Melania? What has she ever done? Oh my god look at his smug face. And those two smug idiots behind him, Ryan and Pence, “we’ve got the power now nah nah nah nah nah.” Trevor why are you watching this?! How can you watch this!? Oh my god now they are cheering at the Dakota Pipeline, ripping up the beauty of our planet with an oil field. What ignorance, yes let’s all cheer along making money from heartless destruction. Oh now they are cheering at professing to dispel violence and poverty. Easy to do sitting on billions, whilst radiating hatred, creating it, transmitting violent communication completely unaware of their impact. Do they have any intelligence at all? Low life, vile, self righteous and so stupid ugh…..” And so it went on.

Until I caught myself. And took a breath.

Sunset

I’d allowed myself to get swept up into the divisiveness, the conflict, the separation, the hatred spewing out in America’s dark night of the soul.

Until I stopped myself.

I’m so lucky to work with Simon Haas, author, The Book of Dharma, Making Enlightened Choices. In teaching yoga philosophy he talks about the dark night of a soul being a calling to sacred love.

And so let this be our calling.

Every time we see Trump and his cronies spewing hateful, violent communication, let this be our calling to love; a reminder to connect even more deeply to our hearts, to compassion, to kindness.  Let it be our reminder to choose to listen to and be guided by our hearts to fulfil our true nature and purpose, to perpetuate calm peacefulness, substance, generosity and love.

And let us make this our business.

The day after Prince died I was deeply moved listening to Van Jones speaking about Prince. He shared that Prince’s message was “Turn your creative spirit into an economic force for good”, his call to action to young African Americans.

Let it be a call to action for all of us.

I’m running a pilot of True Business Online Course, to lead with your creative spirit and heart in business. To develop your business around your true nature and purpose and enjoy deep fulfilment, make a positive difference and a financial profit.

Whether you are starting out, a flourishing solo entrepreneur, small business owner, or working in a corporate with a desire to do what you came here for, True Business is a 5-week online course designed for you to explore the business your heart and creative spirit is called to create and grow now.

Normally £195, the pilot is £95 for a lifetime membership so you can create your business approach year on year. It’s for a minimum of 10 people, maximum of 20 so there is plenty of time and space for connection and guidance; and all in a global community of likeminded, encouraging, supportive people building their businesses with heart, compassion and intuition. All I ask is that you give plenty of feedback!

It starts on Monday 27 March 2017 and if you’d love to join us you can register here.
