Conscious Writer

 

You’ve poured your heart into writing your book, setting up your new business, your retreat or online programme so what next? Do you hand it over to a traditional PR consultant to present you with a formulaic strategy? Download a marketing blueprint from the internet? Or, do you continue to work consciously, aligned with source, and embrace PR as the creative energetic heart of your project?

Consciously creating your audience, sharing your message so that you have a powerful, positive impact with the people you are here to serve can be a deeply fulfilling experience and a lot of fun. Here are the three keys to align with your inner wisdom and your own personal PR approach that creates results you love and much greater visibility, momentum and fulfilment.

Step One. Set your higher intention

Your higher intention will attracts and inspires your audience to join you. Naturally, you would love to attract more clients, sell more products, that’s a given. Plus ask yourself: what is your higher intention?

To illustrate, Simon Haas, author, ‘The Book of Dharma, Making Enlightened Choices’ applies PR to sell more books. And his higher intention is to share the wisdom of The Dharma Code to empower many more people to make decisions from their higher selves and transform their lives. This is compelling and a purpose you can choose to support.

Step Two. Receive your core message

Deep in your heart what is the one message you are here to share with the world? This is the true message of your heart that you will stand for passionately with no compromise. This core message becomes your north star lending you direction and purpose; it brings you back into alignment when you become overwhelmed or distracted; it provides a laser sharp focus before interviews.

For example, sitting quietly in stillness and asking my higher self to share my core message I hear ‘follow your heart’. Short, simple and focused it serves as a reminder to me to listen and allow my heart to show me the way, as well as being the message I’m here to share and encourage at a time when the world has a deep need for more love, kindness and compassion as we evolve humanity and global structures to serve our thriving and well-being.

Step Three. Choose PR activity you love

Quite often a PR consultant will advise you to do a range of traditional PR activities to get your message out and fulfil your objectives. However, this is often formulaic and at it’s worst a distraction.

Instead tune in to discover the PR activity your heart most deeply desires to create now.  I use a powerful process where we travel in your imagination beyond your mind, thoughts and feelings, to source and the place where everything your heart is called to create now already exists. From this we choose 8 PR results you would love to create now.  Connected to your true nature and purpose the PR activity that springs forth is surprising and yet obvious at the same time. Always inspiring, energising and expansive it is a very different experience to taking on a formulaic template from PR experts because that’s what worked for someone else.

To illustrate, Simon Haas wanted PR for his book to be featured in yoga and lifestyle magazines. Diving into his heart via his imagination it became clear what he’d really love is to share this wisdom in person with many people at yoga festivals. As an introvert speaking to thousands of people is not something Simon would have naturally suggested.  And then the opportunities opened up seemingly magically, effortlessly, naturally. Within 5 months Simon had a Yoga Studio and Festivals Tour booked and delivered, including the British Yoga Festival and Om Yoga Show, following his heart and fulfilling his purpose. He also established a busy blog on Huffington Post with articles and book reviews in Yoga Magazine and other lifestyle blogs he wanted. No pushing, forcing or convincing required because of the pre-alignment with his inner wisdom and source and what he loves.

To recap:

Your higher intention + core message + PR activity you love = magical, natural, effortless end results that are substantial, fulfilling and transformative for you and your business.

PR becomes the creative energetic heart of your business consciously creating the audience that is ready and waiting to receive your message and the gift of wisdom and inspiration wrapped up in your work.

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…

Antiguapassword

Have you played the creative password game?

You set your password to whatever it is you want to create now.
It works on the premise that your focus creates reality.  That whatever you give your energy and attention to grows.
So by typing what you want numerous times a day you are continually reinforcing your focus and attention on what you want.
In doing so you bring it to life.

I’ve heard it suggested but haven’t tried it.
Until I realised that my password since March has been Antigua123.
How many times have I typed Antigua123 since March? Hundreds? Into the thousands?
I’ve been once, twice and have just booked to go a third time to Antigua.
Antigua 123.

I’ve just changed my passwords to my income target for 2014/2015.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
I’d love to hear from you if you’ve played the creative password game.
Or join in now and we can give it a try together.

What's your version of success?

Success in the West is being famous, making six or seven figures, owning a couple of houses, getting married and having 2.2 kids. And it’s rammed down our throats non stop as the right and only version.

And then we wonder why so many people are miserable, empty, numb, questioning what elusive thing is missing from their lives. You, your true nature, your heart is missing.

Not always, of course. Not if you have been doing what you love, living in harmony with your true nature, creating your heart’s vision and fulfilling your purpose.

Spending time with warm-hearted people of Antigua, immersed in nature, living with the ocean I frequently hear very different versions of success. Success is being cool (meaning living peacefully), success is keeping it simple, success is appreciating life.  The conveyor belt of required achievements is noticeably absent and with it the pressure to compete, perform, prove your worth, keep up, be good enough. You can breathe, let that all go, appreciate the simple wonders of life and connect to your own true version of success.

Guillaume Nery, world champion in free diving, can hold his breath for a staggering 7 minutes and 42 seconds and dive to 117 metres in one breath.  In this short film shown recently at the Ocean Film Festival he declares a version of his success as “being in harmony with the ocean.”

I’m enjoying exploring many different versions of success, especially those beyond the Western norm, as they are freeing and inviting of our true nature.  And let’s face it we are going to have to go way beyond the out of date heartless versions of success in the Western world for our culture and people to thrive and flourish.

My own version of success is allowing my heart to show me the way. This is when I’m connected to the divine, receiving inspiration, living from my higher nature and appreciating the wonders of life. I’m at my most creative, delightful surprises and magic unfolds, it’s fun and clear, enlivening and beauty is everywhere.

What’s your version? I’d love to hear.

“I loved PR with Heart. Kat, you are so intuitive you can tune into what we need and support us. The group has so much support to give you momentum, accountability and encouragement. The structure for me, breaking it down into small steps made it much more manageable. And listening to your heart. I wouldn’t normally do that and it pinpointed obvious actions and sparks of ideas.”
