Would you like to come to Antigua from 2-9 December 2017?

Antigua is a magical island, a beautiful space to receive pure source inspiration and the creativity of your heart to effortlessly up-level your business throughout 2018.

You will prepare you and your business for a wonderful year of life-changing creativity that you can sense is on its way. A year aligned with your true nature and purpose with abundance, flow, service, prosperity, deep fulfilment, well-being and joy. A year where you become a leader in your field with an international reach and impact.

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 gentle, powerful transformations. They are building successful businesses wholeheartedly aligned with their true nature and purpose with energy, enjoyment, expansion and enjoying significant leaps in financial success.

 

And here’s a few of the wonderful things we are going to be enjoying:

A deep connection to your heart opening to what you are here to create in your business in 2018 and beyond, divine inspiration pouring into you and your business. 

Intimate, supportive relationships with smart, brilliant women who value depth, beauty, wonder, and creativity.

Magical island energy with warm-hearted, local people who appreciate life and the gift of waking to each day.

Warm, gentle winter sunshine on your body, how good does that feel, relaxing and letting go. 

Morning yoga at the beach or on the terrace overlooking the Caribbean Sea before a healthy breakfast.

Early morning swims and walks on deserted beaches as the sun comes up over the hill.

Running into that beautiful, crystal clear, turquoise sea, floating, feeling supported and free. 

Exploring the Island, let’s drive over to Half Moon Bay and find the mermaid pools and paddle board at Pigeon point.

Nighttime swimming with bonfires with a bottle of wine, fresh fish on the barbecue. 

A feeling of freedom, relaxation and coming home.

Business doesn’t have to be blood, sweat, tears and burn out. It can look and feel like this…

If you know it’s true for you to be part of The Antigua Retreat in December book in!

If you are seriously considering it but doubt is in the way – ‘I’m not sure I have the money, or the time, it’s too indulgent etc’ – then book in an Antigua Exploration Session. If it is true for you to be there it will become crystal clear as will the pathway forwards. Find a date and time here.

See you in the Turquoise. Xx

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.

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

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.

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.

A little over a year ago I decided to create my new business by listening to and following my heart. Tuning in the first thing I heard was ‘imagination’ and ‘play’. I remember thinking: Is that it!? That’s all you are giving me to go on?! It was the beginning.

Flipping through my notebook this week the page opened to some writing exploring the vision of ‘my signature programme‘ with a friend, Wendy in April 2014. Here’s what it said:

Wendy: This is a structure for women to put themselves out there, detached from ‘how’. It’s their maiden voyage to launch their ideas. Vulnerability is the portal to their creativity and strength. Grace, working with the energies of nature, silence, to connect with gentleness, innocence, presence, taking their first steps.

Kat: I’m standing at Shirley Heights (in Antigua) sending the message of my heart out into the world. Women are sending the message of their hearts into the world.  In the higher creative structure, in partnership with the energies of life, each person is getting clear on what their heart would love to see visible in the world. It is expansive and creates freedom.

Notebook Vision

Tuning into the vision of my signature programme in April 2014…

I was a little shocked when I read it. In November 2014 I ran the first PR with Heart Online Course for women (and men) with a message to share with the world.  20 bright people from Costa Rica, USA, Canada, UK, France, Holland, Antigua gathered to take their first steps in creating visibility, momentum and fulfilment with their business.

I especially loved women connecting to the message their heart wants to share and stand for in the world – the energy and transformation that created was just brilliant. No blueprints, no formulas, no right ways to do it because it worked for someone else or because that person says it’s so and they are an expert.  Instead listening to their own inner wisdom and with it unfolding clarity, confidence and eagerness to go for it.

And I ran it from Antigua!!  Twice I pre-recorded the class in the morning and headed off to swim in the sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea whilst the class was running online.  Antigua has been so good to me, reviving my heart and creativity after burnout and giving it all to the Homeless World Cup. I’m so grateful to this magical island and it’s people and am thoroughly enjoying it becoming integral to the creative heart of my business.

Antigua Desk

Here I am at my favourite desk ever in Antigua…

Antigua Office

And this is my office. The foyer turns dark at night and fills up with stars visible through the palm trees…

So here I am 8 months later witnessing creating with heart in business in action. And I’m 100 per cent celebrating my decision to listen and follow my heart. Even when it didn’t make any sense at all and I felt crazy and a fool. It is a joy ‘doing business’ in this way. It’s naturally expansive, graceful, compassionate and creates tangible, practical end results beyond what you believe possible.  It brings deep fulfilment and transformation with real substance as you live and breath who you are and what you are here to do in the world.

Still listening. It’s getting interesting!

If you’d love to build a business by following your heart join me for Creative Heart Business Coaching. We will uncover the vision of your business your heart is called to create now and introduce a powerful structure you will use to begin to create it from your true nature, your heart, your greatness over three to six months.  You will enjoy a business aligned with your purpose, that supports you to thrive and has you happy and healthy creating a legacy and positive impact, with your own bit of magic thrown in.

And the next PR with Heart Online Course for people with a message and a mission begins 2 March 2014. Register here.

Until then…

“Follow your heart and intuition as it somehow already knows what you want to become.” Steve Jobs.

For everyone I love who also loves the science and art of creating and creativity.

On Saturday with Esther Hicks at the Indigo O2 in London she shared a super simple exercise that creates an instant return to the higher vibration of the end result of what you want, what you are creating.

When you come up against a Condition that you’re not happy about, and you are triggered, and your energy and vibration drops write or speak a paragraph about it.

Then write, speak out loud or in your mind how you will feel when this Condition is resolved – I feel happy, confident, I feel inspired and joyful, I feel relaxed, so much more at ease, I feel light hearted and excited about life, I feel the possibility I feel curious I feel open and welcoming etc…. whatever you feel.

And you start to feel those better feeling emotions now lifting and restoring your vibration to the higher over the lower, restoring your focus back on the end result of what you want rather than on its absence or on what you don’t want!

Genius.

As I practice I’m experiencing greater periods connected to source, feeling good and becoming increasingly aware when my focus drops to the absence of what I’m creating and with it my energy, belief in it and interest – and then the hard work sets in.

I’m still with Esther and so many of the words of wisdom shared.  I sense potential and possibility and it’s a bit like the cells in my body are dancing.  What a woman with a message and delivered in such a unique way.  Love her being visible, vocal, unafraid. Love witnessing her commitment, practice, dedication, her honed, professional delivery.  And what I love the most is that she moves her ego out of the way to be truly present and lead with love.  An inspiration.
