This Sunday I stepped out of my comfort zone and began a new YouTube channel.

The intention is for it to connect and inspire a global community of people doing business differently – doing business with heart, led by the creative spirit to fulfil a true purpose. Because this way you enjoy meaning, deep fulfilment, well-being and all while you make a contribution and create prosperity.

On Sunday’s there will be classes, tools, insights, creative technology and meditations to create your business around your true purpose with heart.

On Wednesdays ‘Women with a Message’ will continue to profile women in business with inspiring, positive purposes and messages.

Plus monthly there will be a video series focused on a specific topic. ‘Your True Purpose is Your business’ is first up with 5 videos to connect to your true purpose and make it your business.

If you are on YouTube come and join ussubscribe, share and invite any friends who are doing business differently too.

Here’s the first Sunday Session, those times we find ourselves in overwhelm a simple tool to come back to connection and flow.

See you there!

Much love,

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There is an urgent need to transform the outdated schooling system in the UK and The Green House Education Project, based in Bath, is taking action to do just that, exploring and pioneering new ways that put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

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.

jim poyner documentary photography, www.jimpoyner.co.uk, Jules Wyman, York,

Yesterday I sat down with Jules Wyman, Confidence Coach and Speaker to explore her purpose and message. Jules is a participant in the PR with Heart Online Course and growing global community.

Here Jules dispels the myths around confidence and the damage they cause, shares what confidence actually is, and what to do if you have a ‘wobble’.  Check her out and leave your comments on the youtube interview and share the video if you’d like to.

During this 15 minutes together it finally landed for me what confidence actually is. And so inspired by Jules, I’ve decided to turn this into a ‘Women with a Message’ Youtube series and interview women from the PR with Heart Online Course about their purpose and message.

Suddenly I can see how video is becoming my main channel of communication, which my intuition has been sharing with me all along. More coming soon….

And now I know this is a video series I’ll even look into the camera next time.

Enjoy your confidence.

One month on it was a real joy to catch up with each woman attending March 2016’s PR with Heart Antigua to find out how they were doing now and the impact on their business. Here’s what they had to share…

Retreat

Nikola King, Founder, Infinite Essence 

“I arrived in Antigua with a temporary project and came back with a business.

I went to Antigua with a deep rooted belief that I was not a business woman. I came home with a business and owning that I was the Global Ambassador for it. This is a huge life and energy shift. It facilitated what I’ve been waiting a very long time for. I have clarity about my business and who I am within that. My whole life feels very grounded. I know exactly who I am and what I’m here to do.

One month on I have a crystal clear vision and assuredness I’ve seldom felt. I sense strongly that I can’t be moved from my centre even with all the external energies and influences in the world.

I’ve been very ethereal in the past. Antigua gave me the desire and knowing that I needed to ground my work. I want to be here and do this work. It gave me the vision of the impact of my work and other women around me who are here to make seismic differences from our creative hearts and I want to be a part of that.”

Thea on the Beach

Thea Allison, Founder, Big Bang Creations

“One month on I am incredibly grateful. Both to you Kat, for having created the structure (PR with Heart Antigua) and to myself for getting myself there. The impact of it, the energy of the sun, sea and Antiguan vibes, is now a part of me.

The PR plan I created has landed and is the focus for my business. Knowing my market has brought a focus that excites me, and that absolute clarity of knowing where to put my energy is showing in results.

I highly recommend it to others, without a doubt. It’s very good value for money, a wonderful experience and if we are going to be women out in the world we have to give ourselves what we love. Otherwise we will be women putting ourselves out in the world in burn out.”

Jenna Yhearm

Jenna Yhearm, Founder, Gumption

“It was a perfect week of bliss and being focused.

One month on I feel calm and focused. Being at one with myself that week, with positive people, allowed me to remind myself who I am and why I am doing my business. This has stayed with me.

My purpose and message are integrated into every decision I now make in the business. I first stop and consider why I am making the decision and who will it affect. I’m much more conscious, it’s always there.

I’m hugely positive and confident about my future. I know exactly where I’m going in my business, so there is no day-to-day panic. I’m clear on my path and I’ll gently take the steps, I know what the end goal is.“

Tuning In

PR with Heart Programme…

“I loved the structure and your facilitation was great. You held the end result passionately and it was gentle, forgiving, open and you honoured the true agenda of each of us. We had the freedom to get there in our own way and own time and that gave it integrity and the end results real power. It was fun. You gave me blindingly valuable insights into growing my business.”

“The course quite simply and profoundly takes you on the journey you need to go on. I loved the way it all came together. You held the space beautifully. The simplicity and beauty of the work is that it takes you to the deep places you need to go in a safe and supportive way.”

“I had no idea what to expect I just knew I had to be in Antigua. Half way through I was genuinely surprised that the work we had done throughout the week was pulled together into such a clear, and such a simple plan. I hadn’t expected it to be so succinct. It was perfectly clear, perfectly outlined, no doubts. That was genius.”

Villa Amazing Relax

Villa Amazing…

“I loved the villa – it held us in a safe space when arriving in a country you don’t know. To be up on the hill was wonderful. It gave us the platform to be together and to also have our own space. Perfect.”

“The villa was wonderful, perfect for what we were doing, a lovely space to be together, intimate, comfortable with space to be on your own as well when you wanted to.”

Sunset

Antigua…

“I’ve completely fallen in love with Antigua. The people are so calm and chilled it allows the rest of us to be calm and relaxed. I want to go back.”

“Antigua is a place I’ll return to for insights, clarity and support in my business.”

“Antiguan people are so warm, down to earth and so unattached they are very freeing and relaxing to be with.”

“The energy of Antigua is incredibly supportive without it challenging you. It aligns you and brings you in tune with nature. The energies are beautiful facilitating a clarity, truth and strength to proceed. I believe that Kat, you’ve tapped into the energies of the island and are bringing their natural beauty into our lives and business.”

 

If you would love to join us for PR with Heart Antigua 3-10 December 2016 email me – kat@katbyles.com – to reserve your place or book in an Antigua Exploration Session. 

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.

Sheer Rocks

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.

Retreat

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.

What they say

“Working with Kat burst through over 2 years of frustration and perspiration in about an hour and a half! From then I had a clear vision of what we needed to articulate and set to work.”

Martin Saunders, Marketing Head, Good Energy

I’ve created opportunities that allow me to be myself and share the messages that I care about.  I’ve created speaking opportunities, the website and business have been growing.  The way I interact with people has changed – I’m much clearer about what I’m doing and I don’t hesitate or wait to take action.

Samia El Jaafari, co-founder, Intro

“A really big “thank you” for all the hard work and dedication you put in to the Homeless World Cup and for the way in which you have helped to change the lives of thousands of people through football.”

Rio Ferdinand, Footballer

“Kat prodded my intuitive thinking into reality. I created a better working space and products and generated more income for my business.”

Nancy Feely, owner, Island Fresh Market

“My PR plan became the creative, energetic heart of my project. What emerged was surprising, energising, and far larger than I expected. This has given me the courage to do effortlessly what I previously believed would be challenging. I cannot recommend Kat more highly. She is world-class.”

Simon Haas, author, The Book of Dharma
