What happened or inspired you to start your business? 
It’s so funny to contextualize my work in that question, because it really
doesn’t feel like a “business” per se. But I think that’s what it feels like to do work
that is fully in alignment with one’s soul mission. The work I do is my sacred soul-
seed service to this planet. And so, it’s my offering, my gift, my life force, in a
“job.”

Honestly, starting this business wasn’t really a plan I had. It was a calling from
Spirit. Several years ago, I was working as a teacher in public schools in Los Angeles
and I went through a period of extraordinary grief. I had been dealing with a long-
term battle with autoimmune disease, and then on top of that, I faced death of a
loved one, infertility, and divorce in a very short period of time. When that well of
grief and surrender opened up in my life, spirits starting coming to me in my
dreams, showing me other dimensions, showing me my sacred soul work, the
nature of time, ancestral wounding, and so much more. I would wake up every
day at 3am with spirits and energies in my room. And I had no idea what to do.
Eventually, after a lot of support from human guides, I quit my job to travel and
learn from indigenous healers around the world. And Spirit started asking me to
do work to help others. I began working with sacred plant medicines in
ceremony, using the sound of my voice to heal people’s energy fields and
helping others use their dreams and other metaphoric dimensions to interpret all
of the ways that the spirits try to contact us. That’s the super short version.

How does spirituality impact your business? 
Spirituality is my business. I do shamanic healing work—which, in short, means
that I open up sacred spaces for multidimensional healing. I work to clear
ancestral, physical, spiritual and emotional blocks in people’s bodies that prevent
them from living their fullest expression of this particular (and past/future) human
life. So, really, every day, my work is to show up, clear my channel, open my heart,
ground my body and act as a conduit for Spirit to bring healing to our world and
to its people. The spirits—and the Great Spirit—are my bosses, my teachers, my guides and
my greatest fans. And they are yours, too!

How do you stay motivated through the ups and downs of owning your
own business? 

I know that this is something that people struggle with a lot—and I have moments
too, when I forget how supported and loved I am. In my humanness, I think I
have to figure it all out on my own. I forget that I am fully loved and fully
supported in my soul work by the Spirit that called me to this work.
But truthfully, as soon as I remember that I am simply a servant, the fears go
away. I know that the level of service I provide for both the Spirits and the
humans I see has so much worth. They have called me by name and asked me
to do this work, and their highest priority is to make sure I am supported so that I
can continue to serve. They have no interest in me doing anything else.
I also remember that everything in life, just like in the natural world, comes in
cycles. The moon waxes and wanes. The flowers bloom and die. There are
months where I serve cacao every week and months where I don’t serve at all.I
trust that all of the ebb and flow is for my highest good—and the highest good of
those I serve.

What would you tell the younger you just starting her business?
Oh, wow. Great question. My younger self would never have believed that I was
powerful enough or worthy enough of doing this work. Even a few years ago, I
couldn’t have believed that this would be my life. But to the woman a few years ago who sat in the midst of seemingly neverending grief and darkness, I would say, “You’re on the path, dear one. Every shadow you confront will be your greatest ally. Every demon you love will be your
greatest strength. And you are SO MUCH MORE than you have ever allowed
yourself to be. You are worthy—and you are powerful—and you are right where
you are supposed to be. Trust them—and yourself. You know what you are
doing.”

How do you balance your clients, professional projects and personal
commitments?

Honestly, this is beginning to show itself as an area for growth. Because I don’t
work for anyone else, as a boss, I realize that I really am the work I do: that my
beingness is what I offer. So my writing, my voice, my song and my heart is what
people pay me to give. The Spirits don’t have a time clock—they talk to me in the
night, while I’m driving, while I’m reading a book, so its hard to categorize
“balance” the way most people might when they think of a work/life balance.
That means it’s hard to siphon off Instagram or Facebook, or not answer
emails—or not do some form of work every day of the week. Finding that balance
is a never-ending area for reflection and growth.

I also have surrendered that my work comes in waves - I’ll be back in the States
for 6 or 8 weeks at a time, and there will be a lot of work to do here. And the
paradigm here calls for it. And then I’ll go travel and study -Peru, Ireland,
wherever - for a period of 4-8 weeks, and that’s my time to receive and listen to
the messages I need for the next phase and to attend to my own personal
healing.
So, I guess the answer is that I have had to tap into the rhythm that really works
for me - even though it is very different than what most people think a “balance”
should look like. I keep myself pretty hived off from the world when I’m here
working - I spend a lot of time alone, in nature, in sacred space, because it
requires a lot of space and time alone to stay connected to Spirit. And I’ve built
my life to allow that space.

What has been your biggest challenge and how did you overcome?
There was a period of time when I was clear about my calling—and unclear and
unsure about what to do with it. How would I really support myself doing this
work? What would I be offering to people? What exactly were the spirits calling
me to do and be? I was in the fire – and it was very, very uncomfortable, because
I knew I couldn’t go back to my old life. And I wasn’t sure how to move forward.
I cried. A lot.

And then I listened to the next step. What was the next thing they wanted me to
do? A friend gently told me that the most compassionate thing I could do for
myself was stop sitting in the pain, in the fear, in the discomfort, and just walk
forward. Just go.

And so, I listened to the messages that they had given me to write a curriculum
for teenagers and build my website. And I cleared my life to spend a month in
solitude to do those things.

I don’t even use the curriculum yet, though I know someday I will. What
happened in that time, and in that deep listening and reverence for the sacred
soul message, is that I birthed myself. I still don’t even know how it happened.
But I just listened to their guidance. And I submitted to their love. And I just took
the next step and lived in trust.

What project are you most excited about right now?
So many! I’m getting ready to take a group of people down to Peru to do medicine work
with local healers in the Sacred Valley—we have a group in December and again
in April. I am so in love with the shamanic traditions of Peru—and with the plant
medicines. They have pulled old trauma, beliefs, disease and pain out of my
body and soul like no other modality I have ever used. I truly owe them this life I
am living. It is my great honor to share them with so many people this year.
And I have an incubator in the works for next year—combining plant + herbal
medicine with ceremony, shamanic healing and cognitive coaching. 10 women.
10 months. 10 ceremonies. 10 rooted voices for a new world. I’m so excited
about this offering—and about supporting women in really rooting their work in
the Earth and in their soul mission. It is time for all of us to stop spinning around
trying to make money and fit into the moulds society has laid out for us. Our
sacred soul work is so needed right now. And I can’t wait to wake 10 women up
to that like the Spirits woke me. To learn more visit www.janeislistening.com

What to do if you have insomnia

bedroom dreaming.jpg

So many clients share with me their struggles with insomnia. As a former insomniac I can relate. Sleep is so crucial to optimal health yet so many of us are deprived. I've outlined what I've learned over the past ten years in regards to insomnia. 

 

1. Test your hormones

First thing I would recommend is getting a test of your hormones, which could be attributing to your insomnia. Your cortisol, melatonin, DHEA all regulate the circadian rhythm (sleep rhythms) which is controlled by the hypothalamus. If these levels are out of whack then so will your sleep. 

When I took these tests I learned that my hormones were totally off - meaning the hormones that were supposed to make me sleepy peaked in the morning and the ones that were supposed to keep me awake peaked at night. No wonder I always felt off, even as a child. I think this was due to years of anxiety, stress and heightened fight or flight mode in the evenings due to some challenges in my home life as a child. And probably my homeostasis was more prone to feeling anxious.   

More expensive version here, less expensive but less extensive version here

2. Take an Ayurveda quiz 

Take the quiz and learn about your dosha. There are preferred foods, herbs, exercises, meditation for each dosha and what to do at particular times of the day to enhance good sleep. For instance, some people are not affected by caffeine or exercise in the afternoon or evening, whereas some people are very sensitive to it. 

You could go to an Ayurvedic practitioner to purchase the herbs, or you can buy in bulk online and then make in a tea each morning and evening that can help you sleep. Mountain Rose and Sun Potion are good. 

 

3. Superwoman Rx

I first experienced the power of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as a 26 year old having just moved to California. I was anxious and angry. The acupuncturist felt my pulse and then regurgitated to me a lifetime medical history after touching my arm and looking at my tongue for about 1 minutes. I was amazed by the wisdom and power of this reading. And even more amazed at how the acupuncture calmed me and relaxed me. Within a year, in addition to removing sugar from my diet, I was sleeping better and experiencing more regular periods than I ever had in my life. I was also had successfully not drank alcohol for one year.

I first experienced Ayurvedic medicine as a 28 year old after noticing digestive issues that weren't resolving from Western Medicine or TCM. Ayurvedic medicine, eating for my dosha, shifted not only my digestive issues but also sleep issues. 

This book by Dr. Tasneem Bhatia offers a quiz in the beginning of the book and then a 21-day plan to follow to reset your body based on the type of woman that you are. She integrates Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic but also Western Medicine. This book is incredible and she integrates so much into one resource for the modern woman, including shopping lists and recipes. 

 

4. Magnesium

Magnesium is known for its ability to relieve insomnia. Some studies have found that it decreases the stress hormone, cortisol. It helps bring a relaxed, calm and sleepy feeling at the end of the day. Another study shows a potential improvement in depression and mood disorders. 

 

5. Woman Code

This book by Alisa Vitti educates women on their menstrual cycles. Your hormones and cycles can affects your sleep. Ideally you want to bleed during the new moon (upcoming Nov 19) and ovulate during the full moon (upcoming Dec 3). 

 

6. Electronics

Turning off the blue light from electronics, or better yet turning off all electronics, at least 1-3 hours before you want to go to sleep. I would also recommend that you go to sleep and wake at the same time each day. This will start to help regulate your body back to a normal state. You can use the flux app on your computer and phone.

Last, allowing the full moon light to shine on you while you sleep the day of the full moon, as well as the day before and after, and then sleeping with eye pillow all other days of the month will help remind your body (and your eggs) of sleep and menstrual rhythms. 

 

7. Meditation and Breathing

I would recommend that you meditate every morning and evening for at least five minutes to become aware of the thoughts and if racing thoughts are affecting your ability to fall asleep. There are so many great apps for meditation and I also have a YouTube videos of guided and grounding meditations. 

Coherent Breathing  is fantastic for insomnia. If you ever want to be guided through it let me know. In summary it is 5 breaths per minute for 10 minutes (inhale 6 seconds, exhale 6 seconds per minute, for 10 minutes). If you want to focus on the Wim Hof breathing that is a great tool tool. The Breathwork that I facilitate in my classes and private sessions is fantastic for clearing blocks and allowing our mind body and spirit to relax at bedtime.

Wednesday Winning - Tara Nicole Hughes

1451899466014.jpg

Tara Nicole Hughes is a professional dancer, choreographer and the creator of INsideOUT, a powerful and practical workshop using meditation, visualization and dance movement as a way to connect to the inner peace and wisdom within. With her highly successful, respected and integrated work as a professional dancer and choreographer, coupled with her Master’s Degree in Spiritual Psychology, her unique value lies in healing through movement. INsideOUT is an experience for the mind, body, soul.

 

What happened or inspired you to start your business?

The idea of my business started after I had my children and I felt a bit tied to the house at night. What was I to do with this time while they were asleep? I was used to taking dance classes, socializing with friends, having more “freedom”. Instead of feeling “stuck”, I decided to use this time as an opportunity to write, to share my stories of transformation; something I had been longing to do. I started a blog, which eventually grew to creating workshops/retreats/online courses, utilizing all my skills and passions: meditation, visualization and dance. My intention and goal was to bring more inner peace and happiness through these modalities. As I began this creative endeavor, things just flowed. It’s amazing what you can get done by yourself with a laptop and some inner drive. The discovery that I could do most of the leg work for my business from my bedroom, fueled me and I became obsessed. I designed my website, I wrote weekly blog posts, I became a contributing writer for Mind Body Green, I researched and booked retreat spaces, I created a 4-week online course, I networked, I set up my monthly newsletter and built my email list. The combination of doing meaningful work in the world coupled with using my natural skill set and my desire to run a business created a deeply satisfying experience for me! Even though it takes a lot of work, as it’s just me, myself, and I, its incredibly rewarding. After I do all the leg work at home, I’m able to take my mission/intentions into the studio or retreat and put it all into action. I get to feel the energy, the healing, the release, the power of the work.

 

How does spirituality impact your business?

Spirituality is at the center of my work, whether I’m working on the “business” side of things or the actual experiences that happen in my classes and workshops. I feel divinely led in my business. When I begin a blog post or lead a workshop, I ask for Divine Spirit’s assistance in helping me to bring more light and joy to the world. To me, that is a spiritual center. Every action I take is in communion with spirit. This focus and intention puts me in a space of trust, surrender and acceptance. I know that the people who are supposed to show up to my classes are there for a reason, so it doesn’t matter if there are 5 people or 35 people. When I reach out to possible collaborators, I know that my intentions are going to magnetize with others for the highest good. Working from this place of service and authenticity is the key for me to having a fulfilling and purpose-filled experience and life. Everything flows easily, and if it doesn’t, I’m able to accept that and find a new path.

 

How do you stay motivated through the ups and downs of owning your own business?

I’ve learned to accept the ebbs and flows of my own process. Sometimes I’ll have months, or actually years of incredible focus, staying power and energy to create, to express, to reach out, to show up, to provide. And other times, like recently, my energy is focused inward and I need to recharge and serve my own needs through self care and love. I just came off of a 9 month journey working on a feature film in London. Since I’ve been home, I haven’t written a single blog post or been inspired to set up my next workshop series. A part of me feels anxious about that and says “get going, get going”, but I’ve come to the realization that I need something different in this moment right now, and that’s ok. Being present to my own needs and callings is the most important thing. I’ve learned to listen to myself, to the inspirations, to the messages and I know, from experience, that it shifts and all has value. I will bring this time of self nurturing and slowing down to my work to come. I will have more to share when I am filled up with my own curiosity, discovery and presence. Honoring of self, honoring of self.

 

What would you tell the younger you just starting her business?

I would tell her to trust her instincts more. I think in the beginning I thought “I don’t know how to do this”, and I started modeling myself after other successful women who were running spiritual businesses. But as I really got into the work of it, I found my own voice and discovered that it’s all right there, within me. There were helpful classes I took in the beginning like Marie Forleo’s B School. That was very helpful and put me on a path with confidence, in a nuts and bolts way. But, once that was in motion, I eventually saw that everything I needed was inside ME; the direction, the clarity, the guidance. I wish I trusted that a little more in the beginning. How do you balance your clients, professional projects and personal commitments? To be honest, this was very challenging for me before my daughters started school. Now that they are in school all day, I have my calendar open to time manage as I need. In the beginning, I felt guilty when I had my work out while with my girls. I decided to keep my work for the morning and evening hours. That way, I could be totally present with them, and then dive in fully when I was on my own and feel good about those commitments and my role as a mama. With that window of focused time, I was amazed at how much I got done.

 

What has been your biggest challenge and how did you overcome?

I feel like my biggest challenge has been to stay the course, as there is no one driving this except me. It takes a lot of discipline and commitment. When I have bursts of creativity, it’s wonderfully exhilarating to let that energy and inspiration take over and lead the way. But we all have good days when we feel strong and equipped and bad days when life is a bit of a struggle. With that, I’ve learned to bank some of my content when things are easy and flowing, to lighten the load when I’m busy or overwhelmed. The other thing that has helped is to share from where I am in that moment, authentically and truthfully. Just showing up and trusting I am enough.

 

What project are you most excited about right now?

I am excited to start a special project I have been working on over the last month; #30daysofmeditation. I am inviting people to join me on this journey for 30 days as I hope to inspire a personal practice that helps to bring more calm, clarity and peace to one’s life. Meditation has been life changing for me and I am very happy to share it. We’ll be meditating every day for 30 days straight, starting Wednesday, November 1st. The holidays can be stressful and I think taking 20 minutes daily to center and calm will be very helpful. I’ll be sharing intentions, video meditations and direction every day on my Instagram page, so anyone is welcome to follow and join!

Power of Manifestation

universe hands.jpg

I was so inspired by the women of Boss Ladies Magazine work session this past week. As usual, we started off our time together by circling the room, each one of us sharing one challenge and one win for the week, and one thing we would like to manifest.  Some women had trouble connecting with their wildest manifestations. Others squealed with delight and embodied their manifestation while sharing with such intensity that it left the group speechless. We thought their manifest share was their win for the week. 

This got me thinking, and I simultaneously heard and received questions from some of the ladies... What is manifesting? Why do some people manifest their wildest dreams? Why do others have trouble turning fantasies into realities? 

I was first introduced to the concept of manifestation through the film, The Secret, back in 2006. The movie was based on the book written by Rhonda Byrne. In 2006, I was two years into a personal spiritual evolution and the movie expanded that paradigm shift to new heights. My then career of pharmaceutical research began to intertwine with alternative healing. And this movie, in particular, took me down a rabbit hole of quantum physics, biology of belief and neuroscience of meditation and visualization. 

During this time in my life I was finishing my second year of a master's degree in Spiritual Psychology. I was learning philosophies, practices and tools in the graduate degree as I was in my personal journey. In that second year I created five ideals for my life. I phrased all of my visions with “I am…” statements and extended them into much more detail in a five-page document. I detailed out the specifics of each ideal scenario – life, work, creativity, health, relationship, sobriety and spirituality. I cut photographs from magazines and inspired myself with vision boards. I started to observe that some of these ideal scenes were coming true. As each one "manifested" I would create the next one. 

But there was something that the movie didn't discuss that I had learned in my graduate degree. That the specifics of what I wanted to manifest wasn't the most important aspect of visualizing, it was the feeling the dream gave me that I was truly seeking.

For example, at that time my pharmaceutical research career didn't feel fulfilling anymore. I wanted something new. I had ideas but felt overwhelmed at the execution. Then I remember to focus on how I wanted to feel in this new career, versus attempting to fix, plan and figure it out with my mind.

What I deeply desired was a career that felt fulfilling, where was helping people who were suffering, that allowed me to continue to grow and learn, was lucrative and flexible, that challenged me intellectually and spiritually, that was creative, and utilized my strengths and gifts. As I wrote these “I am…” statements on paper and created a visual onto poster board that reflected how this experience would feel, I focused more on the essence, rather than the actual job. Within a year, without intending to become a coach, I had five clients and worked out a deal with my then pharmaceutical company to only work four days a week, with the same pay, so one day each week could be dedicated to my coaching clients. 

I learned a few other things through the early years of manifesting, and also, not manifesting. Although I could dream and imagine, what the Universe (Spirit, God, Higher Power) wanted for me might not always in alignment with what I wanted. Therefore I include a prayer into my visualizations and dreams. It goes, "This or something better for the highest good of all concerned." In sum, it means that I am declaring this is the next best idea that I can come up with, but I am also turning it over, because if there is something better for not only me, but for everyone else involved, then I am willing to show up for that dream too. I learned that this was surrender in action. And when there is surrender, there is manifestation. And sometimes, that manifestation looks different than what we imagined, or it unfolds in a different way that we would imagine. 

I've had ideals come true exactly the way I dreamed they would. I've had visualizations come true but in delayed span of time than I would have desired. I have had visions come true in a much different way than I would have planned but they were exactly how they needed to unfold looking back in retrospect. One of those was being a single mom before I got married. I needed to first open my heart to a child before I could open my heart to another adult. And how symbolic that was for me in my own personal journey. Relationships, commitment and marriage were always a daunting subject. I had more to heal before I could truly call partnership into my life. Being a mother first softened me, brought me into my feminine and allowed me to call in a masculine energy in the form of my now husband. And partnership still tends to be my biggest mirror and grounds for learning and spiritual evolution. 

But I digress. We are the only mammals that can dream into the future. The Secret failed not only to describe focusing one the feelings of what we deeply desire, but how to make that part of our life right here, right now, so that our dream merges into our reality. When we begin to feel and act as if its already happening, the veil between imagination and intuitive opens and there is really no difference.

Last, the other limitation of The Secret was it made us believe that these manifestations should happen simply because we are affirming them, putting photos on our walls of them. But there's also emotional and mental processing that needs to happen in order for us to release old wounds and hurts, as well as unconscious and very limiting beliefs that keep us stuck. I work with clients on releasing the conscious and unconscious material that keeps them stuck, so they can vibrate in the feelings they truly desire. Otherwise it is like banging your head against a wall while saying positive affirmations.

Remember, manifestation is energy. It is alive. Make sure you keep it living inside of you.

Register for the Manifestation Workshop on November 11, 2017 from 10 AM to 2 PM. We will dive into all of the processes, tools and skills that I use with 1:1 clients on manifesting dreams into realities. We will clarify our vision, release what is blocking us, and plan ahead for the next six-months. Then we will meet again on May 12, 2018 from 10 AM to 2 PM to share and celebrate our manifestation, learning and growth.

Money and God

iStock-623514254.jpg

The topic of money makes a lot of people squirmy. The word God also turns a lot of people off.  So here's a fun exercise if you are still reading. Take out a dollar bill from your wallet. Flip it over to the back. Read out loud what it says... 

In God we trust.

Why would this be on a dollar bill?

It's actually more relevant than you think.  

Our relationship with money reflects our relationship with God (and vice versa). They go hand in hand, because, as the saying goes, how you do one thing in life, is how you do everything.

When I am coaching with someone new, and especially in our discovery conversations, money is one of the hot topics. And what a wonderful topic it is. Because it tends to be the root, core and depth to most of the other issues in our lives.

Clients and prospective clients will ask... How do I get more? How can I make more? How can I charge more? How can I save more? I asked the same questions for years until I woke up. 

Don't get me wrong, these are all relevant questions. Important to answer and address. And we get to these questions and answering them in our coaching. But before we get to those, we need to answer a different set of questions first. How is my relationship with God? Do I trust in God? Do I give gratitude to God? Do I serve God in my work and life? Do I take care of the money God has given me, through my work in the world? Do I care for the clients and partner that create my money, through my work in the world? Do I give gratitude for the money I already have?

When we start answering these questions we start to realize the deeper material...

I thought I had a connection with God but now I realize I don't have as big of a relationship with God as I thought. Some answer, I don't have time for God, I'm too busy.  

Trust in God? God is not going to pay my bills. God doesn't care if I am living on the street or in a house. I don't trust that God is going to give me money. God isn't going to do it. I have to do it.

Serving God? I don't have time to serve God or go to church. I am too busy working. I am building my new business. I am building someone else's business. I need to focus on how I'm going to pay my bills.

Do I take care of my money? I don't have enough. I live month to month. I can't think about how much money I make and spend. I don't know how much comes in and how much goes out. Its too painful to look at the numbers. There's never enough.

My clients happened because of me, because of the relationships I built, because of the hours I put in. God had nothing to do with it. 

There's a common thread between these answers. Do you see it?

Why would God (or the replace that word with "Universe", "Higher Power" or "Energy" or "Love") give you more, if you're not happy with what you've already got?  Why would you get more if you're not taking care of what you've got? 

Then we get to the next level, when you are careful with your money, giving thanks for your money, being positive, asking God to be of service, showing up and doing the work (internally and externally) what feelings are underneath of your money? 

When you experience fear about not having enough money, you emanate a vibration that prevents you from receiving what you are asking for. Even though you have been asking for prosperity and stability the fear you are feeling is your indicator that you cannot, right now, let what you want in. As long as you continue to think the thoughts that are causing the fear, the things you want cannot show up in your life. You’ve got to accomplish the feeling first.
— Abraham and Jerry Hicks

This is why when I have a client who has been setting intentions and goals, but not noticing financial changes, its usually because the feeling behind the intentions and positivity isn't true or real. There's other feelings like fear, unappreciative, not enough, underneath of the positivity. This is why money and God are connected. When we are enough, when we are okay, when we are grateful for all we have, our lives flow and money has space to flow. 

I'd love to hear from you. What is your relationship with money? What is your relationship with God? What did you discover from this exercise? What is your next step for shifting and enhancing your experience of both? Send me an email: hello@gwendittmar.com
