Sometimes we slip into playing and living in a much smaller and safer way than we are really here and capable of living. The key to moving beyond this place is to get conscious and to begin to really live the life we most desire. For many of us this desire may feel distant or faraway or perhaps we have been there but lost our way and need to regroup. We often get cues or hints in or daily life that gets us thinking – am I happy , is this life really working for me? Some of us freeze like Bambi in headlights when we hear these messages and stay small- as change can be uncertain and staying where we are seems safer.  Some of us reach overwhelm and question our whole life, its meaning and purpose.  We all get a moment of pause that allows us to question how we are really living life.

When we are being called forward to live more consciously we usually:

  Get a niggling feeling that something is not right…that we are not fulfilled

  Experience a reoccurring sense that there is more to life than the way I am now living.

  Or get another sign in a way we are used to receiving information

Always listen to these cues because they provide invaluable opportunities and subtle openings for change and lasting success.

Recently I realized that I had a lot on my plate and that my priorities and my ability to accomplish what I needed to accomplish while still loving my life was becoming a challenge. I had one of those niggling feeling that something was not right. I had to stop- slow down – listen – take the bull by the horns and reprioritize my days based on what I truly desired most- that aligned with what I value most.

So where does getting VERY clear on our desires enter into the picture?

What we desire is central to designing a life of success and meaning. When you understand your deepest desire (and have tested it to see if it is linked with your highest reason for being here -your destiny) your life will take on a new rich meaning- fulfillment will be central to your every day. You then know that you are on the path to a life well lived.

Let’s get practical here is the roadmap I have used to anchor my deepest desires and values in my day and to measure- daily- how I am doing:

  First be clear about your dream– what do you really want to accomplish (be it in your life or a given month- the art here is clarity about what you want!

  Next, take small measurable steps to build more of this dream into your day (find a teacher or mentor who has already accomplished it, research about it – to build understanding. Do whatever you can to make it real.

  See yourself already there- picture yourself living or accomplishing this great desire ( it really helps to take the distance and blocks away). As you become more comfortable and familiar with the desire it slowly becomes a part of your world.

  Notice coincidences and synchronicities….these are gold dust. Every day here are signs, messages and intuitive knowledge available to us. We must be proactive and invite this wisdom in and use it.

  Close each day with a review of what was wonderful about the day and aligned your day actually was with your greatest desires and values. We are living in an era where great consciousness is needed. Be very conscious and very intentional.

These days that we are living in are absolutely amazing. We have many choices available to us each day. Live life fully. It is your choice.

Let me know if I can be of help. I am committed to your success- your success from the inside out!

Last weekend I was a guest on KGO Radio here in the Bay Area!  I was discussing Life Force Activation – my new work.  Many people have requested the link to the show.  Here it is!  http://www.maureensimonconsulting.com/#!resources/c1xyd


Women are craving more life force in their day-to-day lives.  Maureen Langan and I talked about this in the radio interview.  She is a wonderful comedian with a great personality who truly understands women.  During the interview she asked me a number of questions about why women need to activate their life force at this time.  To me it is very clear that women hold a unique power.  Unless we are clear about our gifts and how we want to use them we stagnate and lose energy and power.  After launching coaching in the U.K., designing hundreds of businesses with women, writing a book on our feminine attributes and hosting online courses for thousands of women, I can clearly see that the next step is to activate our life force.  Interested in learning more?  http://www.maureensimonconsulting.com/#!life-activation/c1m17

Let me know if a session would be useful to you. 
I’m extending the Life Force Activation session special through June.

Life must be lived well and fully!

Pete Segar- The Environmentalist Dies- At The Ripe Age of 94:
He Left Many Lessons for Us to Learn.


I lived on the Hudson River the first 29 years of my life and Pete Segar was
in my community. He was much older than me but we all knew him in as a
great leader. At the time, I was working heavily on environmental issues in
upstate NY. He had created an organization to protect the river and brought
the Clear Water sleuth out onto the river. Everyone was in awe to see this
old styled boat prominently placed on the rivers shore. To me, the boat
symbolized Pete’s love of the river and his powerful commitment to save it.
Pete’s voice and actions created tangible change as he took people out on
the boat to teach them about the river- its beauty and its problems- imposed
humans. The main concern was a high count of PCB’s in the water (chemicals
related to the manufacturing of plastics). They were threatening the
wildlife and communities along the river.

The way Pete educated and organized people and the way he created
intelligent change- through music and education, influenced me to study and
minor in Community Organization in university. He has been a major influence
in my life. When I heard he died 2 days ago, tears filled my eyes as- for
me- an era of peaceful, powerful – meaningful change came freshly alive in
my mind. A day where unity for causes that effect us all was prevalent. I
believe unity in preserving our planet and in respecting each other today is
critical. An art we must regain. Causes and concerns that we were working
on then– are still the exact things that we now need to keep in the
forefront of our thoughts and actions today- to keep this beautiful planet
alive and to live respectfully with each other.

Pete lived his life to the fullest – with the betterment of this planet and
your and my live at the forefront of his actions. He lived each day with
meaning. I have lived and walked behind him in awe. He has been a great

Do join me by truly contributing what you are here to contribute. That is
why you are here.

These days I’ve been learning that wealth comes in many forms.  I must admit, I’m most interested in the inner wealth.  Of course, having enough to comfortably live and share is a high value, but at the end of the day, it’s the wealth that I experience when speaking with a client and seeing her business excel, sharing a story with a close friend over a cup of hot tea and watching the mountain at sunset as it displays phenomenal colors before my eyes.  The wealth I am speaking about comes to me in a strong emotion or feeling.  In many cases, it cannot be bought.

The other ides I’ve been thinking about is the endless supply when we believe that all the beauty, wealth and richness in the world are in endless supply.  I’ve learned this lesson in the days when my well had nearly run dry and shortly after I experience an abundance of richness.  It’s so important to move from our smallness to our greatest selves where trust and possibility are natural and omnipresent.  The art here is to believe.

IMG_4959We’ve been talking about the Elixir Course for the past month. One of the most important things we women need is financial independence.  Many of us have chosen to create sustainable businesses that support our values.  Over the last five years I’ve hundreds of conversations with women who have pointed out that they have had to change or adapt their business to become more relevant or to adapt to new market needs.  The fac e of business is changing.  Relevance is an essential theme to business.  One of my all time favorite things to do is to evaluate a business based on the following criteria:

  • Does It meet a specific market need
  • Is it financially sustainable
  • Does the woman founder/director believe fully in her business.

I truly believe that when we line up our lives with the essence with why we are here, success becomes easily accessible.  However, we still need to have an expertise, passion and diligence in the work we do.  Did you ever consider changing the work you do?  Or, designing or re-designing your business to include something you do well or have a strong interest in.  Stagnation is a great killer.  Never fear change.  Especially, when you have a strong niggling or calling to do something differently.  Are you getting new ideas?  Is something unique or different calling you?  Are you learning new skills that could be applied in new ways? Are you ready to innovate, contribute or change something?

I and my team here at The Essential Company have been working diligently to create the Elixir Course for Women:  http://theessentialfeminine.com/shop#life-elixir

As I sit here in peace with the sun shining through the French Pane glass door that leads to my patio I watch the sun light up the antique table cloth on the table before me. I watch the white roses light up with sunlight flowing through them. The blue sky outside reaches in and I feel content. I am learning that my contentment is a choice- fueled by my commitment to be grateful and to live an awake and conscious life. I am realizing that my senses guide me in each moment of life and they allow me to take in and receive all the beauty round me.

I have made the decision to be a vehicle or a reed in the vast waters of life. I am deciding to allow joy to flow through me. I am deciding to listen deeply and then to follow the golden thread. I trust the road ahead with all its twists and turns. For I know something much bigger than me is driving. I am awake making choices as they arise – staying present.


Much of my contemplation these days has been on my own inner journey to Awakened Consciousness.

  • Where am I on my path?
  • Where can I live my beliefs more deeply?
  • What is next?

I am living my dream the very dream that I have set out to create– The Essential Feminine Company and writing the book. I have created daily practices, rhythms and ways to create my dream that I want to share to help you create and live your dream. To live your dream you must be conscious of it and committed to it. There really are specific steps that I have followed and that I have seen the most successful – (success defined from the inside out) women that I have personally worked with and that I see in the world. I am looking forward to gathering a small group of women to join me on this journey of exploration to Awakened Consciousness. It is time to show up.

Stay tuned. I will be sharing more on this and on ways to join me on the small group journey weekly.

Blessings and gratitude to you.

Why? Many of us fear the dark- the dark of night – the dark experiences that life presents us with.

Fear not- for the darkness provides us with the well needed contrast which allows us to fully experience light. Each experience that we have that feels dark– carries with it in the lessons and opportunities that it leads us to -the light This season  is full of short days and if we allow darkness  to inform us – it will be a great teacher and friend. Do take time to go with in and explore the places, feelings and thoughts within you that you normally would not go because of a lack of time or stillness. Find time to be still and listen from with in..

To be clear and conscious in our businesses we must be clear about the richer deeper meaning of our life. We can clearly hear messages and experience thoughts and divinations when we make time to listen.  Notice in the quiet of these dark days what comes to mind. You may get feelings and guidance that will reveal the deeper meaning of your existence here. Look for the deeper meaning of your life in the quiet. Notice what most excites you and where you are drawn. When you live and express the deeper meaning of your life each day in the work or service we offer we simply are living consciously.

Enjoy the special and sacred season.                                                                              May good things come your way.                                                                                 Warmly, Maureen
