“Deep within every life, no matter how dull or ineffectual it may seem from the outside, there is something eternal happening.  This is the secret way that change and possibility conspire with growth.  John Henry Newman summed this up beautifully when he said, “To grow is to change and to be perfect is to have changed often.” Change, therefore, need not be threatening; it can in fact bring our lives to perfection.  Perfection is not cold completion.  Neither is it avoidance of risk and danger in order to keep the soul pure or the conscience unclouded.  When you are faithful to the risk and ambivalence of growth, you are engaging your life.”

                                                                        John O’Donohue, Anam Cara

Take a look at your life and notice where you could grow or change at this time.  Where can you begin to see areas of stagnation or stuckness as opportunities for growth and the expression of your full potential.  It is important not to avoid risk but to be faithful to ambivalence and growth.  For it is in these areas of our lives that we become fully expressed and alive.

Give yourself permission to create something new in your life today.

Stop glorifying being busy long enough to slow down, feel your body, and live a much healthier, creative and inspired life.  When you are not overbooked and pushing to prove yourself, you allow yourself to live in the moment and life becomes invigorating and exciting.  For years our cultures have encouraged us to rush and to push to produce.

 

Recently I’ve taken more than my usual time for reflection and contemplation as I was starting to notice that I falling into the glorification of busy syndrome.

 

Over the past couple of months I have totally reevaluated my next steps and created a far more relaxed set of intentions for the year.  I’ve begun to turn more inward towards my intuition for answers and next steps.  I’m making more time for reflections, nature and to notice my natural rhythm.

I wondered:

  • Where are you spinning out in business or life?
  • What needs to happen for you to take more time for you, nature and inner listening?

 

I’m hosting a mini retreat to address these issues and would love for you to join me in April.

charging what your worth - Maureen

Knowing your value in business is an art and an act of confidence.

To charge what your worth you first need to believe it yourself.

Are you charging what your worth in the work that you do? 

Dear friends,

It’s year end and time to get honest and clear about your business growth for the year ahead. I have two opportunities that may be of interest to you:

  1. I am now scheduling complimentary business development sessions for women who are ready and committed to take their business to the next level. These sessions are for women interested in personal, focused guidance and support.
  2. I am also forming a new business Mastermind Group. This group is for women who want to grow their business with the support of a powerful group of women in an intimate virtual setting under my guidance. The Mastermind will take place over a period of six weeks starting  January 23, 2014.

In this group we will:

  • Evaluate your current business objectives- build on them or set new objectives
  • Focus on identifying and clearing blocks to your success
  • Create tangible solutions and business opportunities for the new year ahead
  • Walk away with  a clear, measurable pathway for your business growth for 2014

Contact me personally- by December 12th  at maureen@theessentialfeminine.com if you are interested in either of the above.

Both will fill.

Email: maureen@theessentialfeminine.com.
I look forward to hearing from you!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Warmly, Maureen Simon

Our world seems overwhelmed by chaos.  The problems we face are monumental and interconnected to the rest of the world and we don’t seem to be able to hide our heads under the blankets any longer and have them all go away.  In fact, the only solutions seem to be ones in which we take collaborative action; actions requiring us to put aside our inner fears, our negative approach and to move into unfamiliar waters.

Collaborative action is based in putting aside personal interests and needs for the benefit of a larger goal.  It takes inclusiveness, seeing oneself as part of a larger whole, walking in someone else’s shoes.  These qualities are especially strong in women.  By their very nature they are peace makers, interested in building strong relationships, looking for common bonds and shared interests.  These are just some of the feminine attributes that women possess which we need to rely on to overcome the chaos.

Many women are taking a more powerful stance today.  If you haven’t viewed “Women, War and Peace” yet, be sure to see this amazing documentary showing what women in war torn areas of our world have been doing to change not only their lives but all our lives.  These women are using their attributes in a positive way.  Now is the time for us to realize that these natural attributes, too long overlooked and/or negated, are crucial for positive change today and in the future.  We need to encourage ourselves and our young women to value our feminine perspective.  It is only through the addition of the feminine perspective that we will achieve balance and peace in our world.

It is autumn and the change in the air is noticeable even to those of us who live in Florida. Autumn blooms with magnificent colors that catch my eye as I walk through our property in the forest.

Autumn revives me as I see the new colors taking place.

It encourages my feminine essence to nurture and to protect
