Episode 35: November Business Energy Reading

November is upon us and we are being invited to once again check in with where we are in our businesses, what we are prioritizing, and how we are caring – or not caring – for ourselves. The past few months have been part of a huge Death moment, the cards calling us out on how we spend our time and money, and whether or not our goals are in alignment with the life we desire. Every level of inquiry is exposing old patterns and beliefs that limit our potential, and in November we get a crash course in how being alignment does not mean that our work will be easy.

In this energy reading, we discuss how to make choices, which responsibilities we want to prioritize, differentiating between revenue-generating activities and other projects, and re-centering on the forward path. There is a call to generosity and service, while pouring our resources into the vision we’re holding for the business to pull us through the end of the year.

Episode 32: Dana Balicki

 

Transformational coach and teacher Dana Balicki is on the show sharing about her journey from professional activism to sustainable healership.

In this episode, we explore the importance of joy in our work and how to slow the fuck down. Dana shares about how burnout (even from joy!) can be our greatest teacher, and how that can get in the way of our ability to catalyze our own change rather than relying on others to fix our lives.

Dana offers guidance on how to find where you have choice in your life, and how to release old stories of lack even in the midst of our oppressive economic and social systems.

We also discuss the importance of giving ourselves the gift of being a student, the need to prioritize our own care and process over jumping into serving others, and the magic of slow medicine.
