I’ve been connecting with many women feeling called to express their true voice. To speak up, stand up for what they believe in.

This can bring up fears and vulnerability as well as the opportunity to break old patterns of keeping quiet to avoid conflict and replacing with courage, learning to be with the discomfort of disagreement and growing your resilience.

We need women’s voices at the table, feminine wisdom opening up new pathways and ways of being. We need women reclaiming the basic human right to speak.

Have a listen to what women in Obama’s cabinet did to ensure their voices were heard – now known as The Shine Theory – which ultimately resulted in more women’s voices at the table.

How can you amplify women’s voices in your business and community?

If you’d like to grow your visibility and voice naturally join us for PR with Heart.

With all the ups and downs and uncertainty it’s easy to have emotional overwhelm, emotional spikes. And then decision making, focus, creating our business goes skewiff!

Blue Mind Medicine, time out with water, can help reset our nervous system so we can make decisions and create from a calm, connected, serene space.

Wallace J Nichols in his book Blue Mind provides research, stories and evidence explaining why we are happier, healthier and more connected by water.  The blue, red, grey mind concept is a simple way of understanding the contribution of water to our mental health.

Blue Mind – calm, connected, serene, space for grace and inspiration, able to receive

Red Mind – action, decision making, anxiety, pushing, city

Grey Mind – burnt out, disillusioned, indifferent, depressed

Where are you right now?

The antidote to Red and Grey is BLUE – get to the Water.

Where is the nearest water body you can be with or get in?

If there isn’t one, visualise being under a waterfall cleansing any negativity, anything you no longer need away. Take a long bath with epsom salts, stand under your shower for a little bit longer and breathe.

I’m so grateful to the shade of the sea grape tree, dozing whilst listening to the waves and the peace.

Bring your nervous system, your focus, back to your calm, core centre, back to your heart and inspiration to create your business from here, from Source.

Much love, until next week. x x

PS You can listen to the True Business Podcast with Wallace J Nichols for some more Blue Mind inspiration for your business too.

We are co-creators with Life. What would you love the world to look like on the other side of the pandemic? 
 
It’s quite easy to get caught up in the busy of social isolation. Going from Zoom to Zoom, this online course, that webinar.
 
Or be in anxiety, fears of where is the money coming from, are my family safe, when will I see them again, am I safe, when will this be over?
 
Beyond that what is the deep life calling inviting you into?
 
Slow Down. Skill Up. Network. Serve. Survive?
 
Listen to your Heart, your inner nature…

As I stop, take a breath, listen, Life is inviting me to surrender more deeply, to be in the present moment, moment by moment. Let go of expectations, attachments to outcome, control, rushing and panicking and thinking I know how anything will play out.

We’ve been spending time at sunset watering the vegetable garden, watching for whales, listening to the Peace, watching a rare blood red sun set into the turquoise Caribbean Sea.

Life may be inviting you into new skills and learning? Perhaps it’s your time to paint, write, explore a new idea, be with your family. Perhaps it is to serve others? Perhaps it is simply to survive?

Rise up to meet it.

Let yourself be free to ride the wave of Life exactly as you are called.

Do let me know what opportunity Life is opening to you, beyond the fears?

Much love,

Kat x

Are you in harmony with the natural cycles of Nature, with your natural rhythms, or do you fight against Nature? Push yourself when you know you actually need to rest and rejuvenate?

True Business reveres Nature – it is sacred, inspiration, power.

The Water Lily has inspired me to close my business at dusk, to rest, to rejuvenate. I can have a bad habit of picking up work in the evening to finish off, send that invoice, edit that chapter. Watching the Lily close reminded me to go to the beach, walk, swim and close for the evening to rest.

This week…

.1. Schedule in time to be with Nature, to receive inspiration and flow.

.2. Close your business at dusk with the setting sun and the Water Lily.

.3. During your day notice the environment around you. Give your thanks to the plants, trees, flowers. 💕🙏🏻💕

Join me for The Antigua Retreat in March or December and Create your True Business from Source. katbyles.com/antigua.

I’ve made it back to Antigua and this week’s wisdom from the sea is a reminder for us all to connect to Source – the most powerful creative intelligence on earth – to create our True Business.

It brings flow, wellness, inspiration, fulfilment, alignment with your true nature and purpose when we create in harmony with Nature.

There’s a short guided meditation to connect to Source where ever you are.

Are you in flow or do you need to reconnect?

What happens to you and your business when you plug into this creative power of Nature?

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. 

Free Live Webinar Create your True Business with Heart

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

“The greatest gift from True Business has been simplicity. It has allowed my offerings to emerge and they are all things I never thought I’d be able to do as work. Photography and taking people into Nature feel so obvious as they are part of me. The business I needed to bring to the world has now been allowed to emerge.”

Edward Pike, Spiritual Mentor, Photographer & Writer
