EPISODE #40

The Uncorked Story

This is a heartfelt, “come full circle” episode. In episode #1, I share how the word “uncork” arrived to me, and this is the continuation of that story about my journey to uncorking. From the youngest age, we start corking up parts of ourselves in order to fit into our social groups and survive. We put layers around us for protection against the fears of how others might perceive us.

It’s an incredible feeling to receive a vision from your heart that’s bigger and more joyful and expansive than your current reality. When you take inspired action towards that vision, you enter a state of doing that flows through you and feels effortless.

But sometimes on our path, we get out of alignment to the inspired action and find ourselves in a state of overdoing.

Text messages, emails, newsfeeds, headlines, Mr. Google. All day long there are rings, dings, pings, and curiosities whirling around our brains begging us to investigate. The problem arises when we spend too much effort feeding our monkey mind urges, instead of focusing on what we truly want to create in life – the things that mean the most to us, the things our heart is calling us to do.

Do you have a vision for your life and business that is different than your current reality? In today’s episode, we explore how to make your visions (even the blurry ones) a reality by playing in the magic and staying in the real. I speak to master coach Jennifer Voss about what it means to get clarity of vision and how to shift into alignment to that vision.

We can spend a lifetime searching for just the right words to define our core gifts. But truly understanding and embodying our gifts moves beyond words: It’s an energy frequency. In today’s episode, I chat with master coach Michael Trotta about what that means and how to develop a daily practice to liver deeper into our gifts.

Creating from your edge has many layers. On the one hand, it’s traveling to the outer edges of your comfort zone and creating from that space – pushing your outer limits. But it’s deeper than that. It’s also traveling to the outer edges of the collective consciousness to create whole new designs, ideas, solutions, and ways of doing things.

You have dreams. The smaller ones are important. The bigger ones mean so much that they scare you. They scare you because of their bigness and the impact that you know they can make.

On your path to chasing your biggest dreams, a piece of you will say: give up, it’s too big, and slow back down. But that’s the last thing you should do.

We live in the Information Age. That means we are consuming more content on a given day than any other time in human history. So if you’re the creator of the content, the question becomes: How can I rise above the noise?

Content includes everything from blog posts to podcast episodes to Facebook Lives to newsletters. It’s the information we send to our audience so they can get to know us and what we offer. It’s a huge part of building a successful business in the 21st century and the topic of this week’s episode.

This week, I am experimenting. For the first time, I recorded this entire episode once without any editing. The reason why is because we’re exploring how to spark your creativity by creating from the heartspace. I offer 3 simple steps on how to access this state of being, while at the same time being an example of how it’s done.

From intention to meditation to oracle to tarot, card decks are everywhere right now. The reason they are only growing in popularity is because they are a beautiful way to cultivate mindfulness and live our lives on purpose.

With so many choices, it can be hard to know which cards are best for you or where to start. In this episode, I ask the creator of the May You Know Joy card deck Adrienne Enns about how to choose the right deck and use cards as part of our daily spiritual practice.

It’s episode #30, so that means it’s time to tell a story. I devote every 10th episode to telling a story. Twenty one years ago, I had everything going for me. I also had a big decision to make. Should I pursue the lucrative job I had been offered, or chase my dream half way around the world?

Morning routine. Miracle morning. Soul session. There are many ways to describe the process of getting still and connecting to your soul and guides to receive guidance and live more intentionally.

I love the idea of calling it a spiritual discipline as our guest Steph Lagana describes it. There is no right or wrong way to do it. There is no need to be productive. There is no expected output. It’s embodying a connection and receiving whatever may be nourishing to your soul in any given moment.

Many of us receive a calling to do something more than our day job offers us at some point on our path. But changing directions mid-career can be difficult.

A great way to tip your toe in new waters without quitting your job or assuming a big financial risk is the “side hustle.” Pursuing a side hustle on the side of a day job or other main effort can be a great way to earn more money, pursue a passion project, or build a business.

Episode 27

Does clutter greet you every time you sit down to work? Do you wish you had a more inviting home office but feel like you just don’t have the time to create it? Then this episode will surprise you.

Get ready to clear off that desk, tidy your drawers, and develop a plan to keep your work space functional. It’s easier than you think and won’t steal time from “more important things.”

We have big dreams. We want to get that book published, give that Ted talk, and sell out whatever it is we’re selling. And it can feel dispiriting when our dreams feel far away from our current reality.

But here’s the most important question to ask on your journey: Have I made the space in my life for my biggest dreams to arrive? Have I made room for them to land?

When I first discovered Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT, I thought it was weird. The blogger who introduced it to me – who I followed religiously – suddenly seemed crazy. But I was intrigued, so I gave it a try with an open mind. Today, I use EFT every day both in my life and as a coach.

This is the second episode of a 2-part series where we explore the discomfort associated with growth and how to ease through it. In ep #24 we chatted about how to identify whether the discomfort is coming from the head or the heart. In ep #25, we explore how to use EFT to flow through the discomfort.

You’re ready to uplevel and take bigger risks, but you don’t. Why? Often we fear the discomfort associated with going bigger. The problem is if you want to uncork your true nature and make a big impact, discomfort is inevitable.

The trick is to know the different between fear and the discomfort resulting from natural growth. This is the first episode of a 2-part series where we’ll explore the discomfort associated with growth and how to ease through it.

Planning is a thrilling, creative process where we look into the future to contemplate life’s infinite possibilities. Proper, soul-guided planning is an essential part of growing or scaling up your business or reaching those highest life and career goals.

When planning falls off our agenda, it costs us valuable time, resources, and effort. Without a good plan, we feel scattered.

One of the biggest struggles I encounter with soul-guided entrepreneurs is making consistent income selling what their is guiding them to offer. It’s easy to burn out and feel defeated in offering up – in the form of sales – our core gifts to the people we feel called to serve.

In this episode, I sit down with expert business coach Patty Lennon to discuss how tapping into our core gifts can increase our income. We take apart what it really means to run a soul-guided (or soul-infused) business and how to get your brain on board with your soul’s plans and intentions.

Episode 20 So Thankful I Didn't Cork Up

It’s episode #20, so that means it’s time to tell a story. I devote every 10th episode to telling a story. This episode is being released on Thanksgiving day, so I’m going to tell you the story of how I pulled off a traditional Thanksgiving dinner in Darfur against all odds and how my core gifts showed up to save the day.

We live in a world that tells us “we have to see it to believe it.” For something to be real or possible or true, we must have proof that it is real or true or possible. THEN, we have permission to believe it.

The core gift process requires us to reverse that thinking to: We have to BELIEVE it to SEE it. We can get caught in the trap that we need to see our core gifts before we can believe they’re real. But until you believe in them, you will struggle to see the superpowers that are uniquely and expressly you.

We conclude our deep-dive into the world of core gifts.

We continue our deep-dive into the world of core gifts. In episode 13 and 14, we learned how to define core gifts and shadow gifts. In episode 15, we learned how to spend more of our days in expression of our core gifts.

Now, we shift to living deeper and leaning harder into our mastery. We’ve been taught from the youngest age that if we want to learn something we need to find that information outside of ourselves. Read a book. Take a class. Consult an “expert.”

But that’s not how you learn and up-level when we’re talking about core gifts. Because WE are the experts of our core gifts, we need to look inward, and not outward.
