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

 You can make as much profit in business as you like. If you aren’t conscious of and meeting your unique needs you will never be or feel prosperous.
 
When you consciously create your True Business from Source, in alignment with your True Nature, these non-negotiable needs are weaved into your business structure, so creating your business automatically meets these needs. You don’t need to acquire money first to have them….
 
Take a breath, connect to your wise creative heart and journal…
What is your vision for your prosperous true business?
What are your 4 non-negotiable needs?
Does your current business meet these needs?
If not, what immediate changes can you make?

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

Come with me on a walk – 3 minutes of beauty

And listen to your heart.

When you listen to your heart in business you take a very different path.

A business that leads with your creative spirit, honours your heart and is in harmony with the Earth. A business with connection, compassion and kindness.

My productivity this week has gone out the window. Overwhelm, anxiety and scattered thinking.

My egoic mind wanted to push through, write my book, now you’ve got the time!

My heart invited me to go on a beach walk.

A walk into beauty, calming my mind, soothing my soul.

Returning grounded, peaceful, present.

Come with me into these little blasts of beauty.

Listen to your heart.

What does your heart want to share with you?

This week’s wisdom from the Sea.

Much Love x x

Friends, family and clients have been reaching out, sharing that whilst there is so much rapid, external change, redirection and uncertainty it can be challenging to stay balanced, connected to our calm, clear wise heart.

It is much easier to listen to our heart’s together.

We will listen for:

** What Source, Life is calling you to create at this time
** Your natural way to be of service
** Your obvious next steps to take in harmony with Life, with your Nature
** Any other key questions you would like to ask your calm, clear heart

Here’s the link to register: https://zoom.us/…/regist…/tZwpc-iurzMqsLGHno3dKh4hPwTIvbni1g

We all have an audience held within your heart that your purpose, gifts, message, offering will effortlessly, naturally serve to thrive. This brings deep fulfilment. A win-win.

Are you serving yours?

When we don’t we can be drained and depleted. Perhaps you are chasing the money, who you believe to be the budget holders, decision makers, easy pickings?

We can feel stuck, void of inspiration and creative flow. As clients dry up, we begin to lose confidence, even doubt our purpose and value.

When I was creating True Business I assumed logically that the audience would be entrepreneurs, it’s about business afterall! The inspiration dried up, I stopped writing, became disinterested.

And then, whilst interviewing for a new tenant a creative couple showed up. The man had had  a successful career in music, a four album deal with one of the biggest record labels. Whilst the band made money for the record company the band members themselves hadn’t. He felt in a constant battle for creative integrity. He was now a graphic designer. His partner a bright, creative woman was an illustrator working for an artisan coffee company as an account manager.

As we spoke, I experienced an urgency to complete the book, to make True Business widely available for creative people to thrive in business. This was a light bulb moment. ‘This is my audience!’ It makes complete sense that a business model leading with your creative spirit would serve creative people, but my logical mind hadn’t yet made that leap.

In this moment, I realised that I don’t like entrepreneurs. I’d come to personally define entrepreneurs as a masculine approach to business, making profit at any cost, lacking in emotional intelligence, empathy for others, with zero thought for our earth.

What a relief to let go of the entrepreneur and allow the energy and inspiration to flow in service to the creatives, pioneers, artists, trailblazers, healers and teachers who care.

Do you love and care about the audience you are working with? Or do they drain and deplete you? If so, who is your love and attention naturally drawn to? This is a great indicator of your true audience.

Stop for a moment. Ask: Who in your heart are you truly here to serve? Listen to your Heart. It already knows.

This week’s wisdom from the Sea.

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. 💕🙏🏻💕

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?

This was a lovey opportunity to share my story with Sonya Morton-Firth of discovering a different way of being in business. A way of being that leads with the wisdom and creativity of your heart, a way of being that aligns with your true nature and purpose.

True Business led me from burn out into connection, creativity and inspiration. It led me into business as a full expression of my True Self. It led me into regeneration, wellness, peacefulness, simplicity, and universal flow.

Sonya is following her passion and gift for making it easy to share your story with this a new show and interview series hosted on YouTube, exploring different ways of living and being. She is highlighting stories of people overcoming struggle, stories of people addressing mental health, stories of people finding the way that is natural and true for them. Stories of people breaking the convention.

Have a listen to this interview, come along with us to see if you relate to the path of the heart in business. I’d love to hear from you if you do. Leave a comment on the YouTube page.

What they say

“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.”

Denise McAlister, Let’s Talk STI’s

“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

“I’ve created my whole PR with Heart plan. It’s thanks to you that I got into Yoga Magazine. You gave me the courage to go for it. Now I have a book review and article in the November and December editions.”

Sue Blanch, Yoga and the Menstrual Cycle

“Kat is a powerful, imaginative and intuitive leader with a great capacity to see a vision and make it happen. What sets Kat apart is her heart. She works with passion and exudes creative energy and enthusiasm that is both inspiring and contagious.”

Mel Young, president, Homeless World Cup

“’It is enjoyable to make things visible, which are invisible’ – Eric Cantona. This quote speaks volumes about you Kat. You are an inspiration now and always.”
