Episode 65: July Business Energy Reading

July is upon us, and it’s time to check-in and ask: are we showing up to serve?

So often in business we let our worries and fears of not being enough or feeling like a fraud stop us from doing our jobs.

In the month of July, those energies will challenge us to step fully into our roles as masters of our work, wherever we are along the continuum of learning and experience. Why? Because we’re here to help people, and choosing our fears over the impact we could have if we acted from belief in our mastery is choosing our comfort zone over changing the world.

If this episode has been of service to you please share with a friend who needs to hear this. Leave us a review on iTunes so the energy reading can reach more people.

I also welcome your support for the production of the podcast on Patreon to help defray the costs of providing this free resource.

And lastly, join us in our Facebook group where you will get to connect to other soul-centered entrepreneurs just like you, and hang out with me!

Show Notes:

2:23 – Energy for the Month (9 of Pentacles Rev.)

This month, we may have a tendency to shy away from affirming how brilliant we are, or the mastery we have achieved. As business owners we need to put ourselves out there, and by resisting this energy we keep ourselves in a comfort zone.

8:04 – Action for the Month (The Chariot)

You are on the right path, affirm your vision and keep going! The Chariot will help hold your visions, even if the journey will take longer than you would like.

10:50 – Release for the Month (Wheel of Fortune)

Let go of control and worry. Let got of needing to know what is coming next and keep your focus on your vision and building your mastery.

17:13 – Outcome for the Month (The Empress Rev.)

You are being called to approach your business with logic and an analytical brain this month. Try challenging yourself to create out of need rather than deep connection.

In this month’s business training episode I go over the important factors to creating a successful launch and how to get the right people to invest in it.

I love this launch model because it is the best way to engage your audience, and make them an offer, so much so that I shared all the specific steps I took in my latest launch over on the So You Wanna Be A Witch Facebook Group.

Episode 62: Clara Bailey

Clara Bailey

In this episode of the podcast, we have a chat with Clara Bailey, a naturopath who specializes in menstrual cycle health and natural fertility. Our bodies, moods, and brains are not separate from our businesses, and Clara gives us tips on how to tap into our natural cycles to better support us in more challenging times of the month, and support the work we are doing instead of work against it.

Many of us have grown up thinking that period pain and PMS is a normal part of the menstrual process, but this doesn’t have to be the case! Clara helps show us that connecting with and supporting our bodies’ natural cycles can help us tap into our intuition, and how we can use it to create a more functional workflow as small business owners.

Episode 61: June Business Energy Reading

In this business energy reading for the month ahead, we talk about how June may be a bit of a challenge for us soul-centered entrepreneurs.  This month we are called to give generously, but how can we truly give our time, energy and resources as business owners if we are not emotionally secure?

We are starting to put on longer range vision here from a place that is emotionally fulfilling, which isn’t as easy as what you may have been doing this far to make money in our businesses. But don’t worry, because if we can practice diligently, mastery is just around the corner!

Have these energy readings been useful to you? Come join me in my Tarot for Self-Care course! If you are reading this when this episode airs, there is still time to signup here. Registration closes midnight EST on June 2nd. Have questions? Feel free to reach out to me @sarahmchappell on Instagram.

Show Notes:

3:58 – Energy for the Month (10 of Cups Rev.)

Things aren’t going to be exactly as we would like them to be, in particular, how we feel in our businesses. We may be feeling a bit tired, burnt out, or no longer emotionally fulfilled.

13:34 – Action for the Month (6 of Pentacles Rev.)

June is calling us to give generously, that is why it is so important that we focus on being supported emotionally, as this is going to sustain us.

15:35 – Release for the Month (5 of Wands Rev.)

What are you stressing out about the next steps to take in your business? It’s time to let go of them! Write down all your ideas and put them aside, for now, and focus on one thing.

Episode 60: Self-Care for Entrepreneurs

Self-Care for Entrepreneurs Sarah M. Chappell

Today we are talking all about about self-care for business owners, and not in the super luxurious sort of way, which definitely has its place, too! In this episode I outline the four crucial things small business owners should be doing to care for themselves, but often over look or even actively resist.

Taking care of yourself is a critical part of being an effective business owner and is not separate from your business. These things are inextricably linked, and you deserve to chose to serve yourself so that you can have a bigger impact in the world.

I hope that the topics shared in this episode will help you start to infuse self-care into your business as a core value, and I invite you to join me for my free Tarot for Crazy Brain webinar on May 28th or June 1st to continue to learn more about how tarot can help you to better care of yourself.

This webinar is leading up to my Tarot for Self-Care course, which is all about using tarot as a tool to activate your intuition, regain agency in your life, and release anxiety and excessive fears so that you can build the life and business that you actually want. Registration begins May 28th, but you can sign up for the wait list here.
