The Empowered Visionary World Summit

The Empowered Visionary World Summit

I’d like to invite you to a complimentary online interview series starting April 24, The Empowered Visionary World Summit that my friend and colleague, Kari Van Tine, created to allow 21 visionaries, including me, to share our stories and advice for stepping into your power, and make a meaningful impact in the world.

We’d love for you to join us. Reserve your spot here:

Shine Your Light, Live Your Biggest Vision.

If you’ve always known you are powerful but have pretended to be small and have hidden your gifts from the world, be sure to join us. Together, we’re going to inspire and help you start creating a powerful game plan, take action, and manifest your big vision in the world.

Step Into Your Biggest Life.

Whether you’re well into a big project, or you’re just beginning to think about how you can impact the world, you’ll find this summit inspiring and helpful. This is such a great opportunity for anyone in my community to join us, who feels concern and love for our world, and the pull to make a big difference.

A few of the other speakers are Martha Beck, Bernie Siegel, Susan Weed, and SARK. This is a truly remarkable lineup of incredible people! Reserve your “virtual seat” by going here: TheEmpoweredVisionary.com

Calling for courage stories.

Hello sweet friends,

It’s been an intense time in the world… and we are all doing our best to respond in the best way we know how. For me, that means listening to my inner wisdom and asking what would nourish me most- what would help me stay buoyant and vibrant. Energized by life and not depleted by it.

And this is the place I most like to create from – a genuine hunger in me that becomes medicine for us both. My best work is always offering the medicine that I myself most need.

So in the spirit of that, I would like to offer a brand new version of one of my favorite classes – Cultivating Courage. This class is a 30-day courage experiment where we do one tiny brave move each day (and share with each other in the classroom) while reading courage stories to keep us feeling uplifted, inspired and connected to one another.

Practicing courage (in small ways every day) takes me farther than any other practice I know. Not only will you feel connected and inspired, but you will start seeing real change in your life and feel more alive and lit up than before. And the world needs us to feel alive and lit up.

Free Manifest session with me!

The first 20 people who sign up (early birds rule!) will get a 50 minute Manifesting session with me on the phone. This is where we get together + consciously create your year… we look at your values, your limiting beliefs, your desires, and get you on track to be the bravest possible version of you.

 

I need your help!

  • Do you have a story about a time when you had to call on your courage?
  • What happened? How did you transform?
  • Was there any magic on the other side?

These stories can be short and sweet. (And no heroics necessary. We’re talkin ordinary, everyday courage)

Details:
400 or 500 words max.
DUE: February 19th, 2017
Email your story to me here: superherosf@gmail.com

A collection of these stories will be published in the upcoming courage class.

*Everyone who sends me a story will get a discount code for the upcoming course. Those whose stories get published, will get the course for free. Can’t wait to read your stories!

P.S. I shot this photo of Brené Brown several years ago and love it so much. She is such a great mentor for courage and vulnerability, which are really two sides of the same coin.

 

Dreams and divine timing (and Mondo Beyondo starts today!)

dahlia_purple_close_600

Some dreams take a long time to percolate. I love the idea of trusting in the divine timing of dreams– the notion that they always arrive at exactly the right time. But who has that much faith? Usually, I wonder if I’ve missed my chance, if I’m falling behind, if I didn’t strike while the iron was hot, or if it’s just too late for me.

It always makes sense looking back. “You can’t connect the dots looking forward,” Steve Jobs famously said, “only backwards.” You can see how you weren’t ready, or this needed to happen before that, or you needed to cultivate a particular skill first or meet that one person… It always makes sense looking back. Nothing is lost. No time is wasted.

Dreams pull us toward a new version of ourselves. If our aim is to fully become who we are, then our dreams are like a moon pulling the tides. Even before we achieve a dream, we are becoming the kind of person who makes those kinds of dreams come true.

What if every single thing you did, every experience you have ever had led you to this moment? I wrote a letter recently that was incredibly hard to write, but I have never been more proud of myself than I after I put my pen down. I felt peaceful. The kind of peace you feel when you’ve told the truth, with love and gentleness. I felt like my entire life (every book I have ever read, every course I have ever taken, every painful experience, an entire lifetime of dedicating myself to personal growth) prepared me to write this one letter.

How do you know when it’s time to step into your dream?

  • When the signs are everywhere.
  • When that nagging thought won’t leave you alone.
  • When doors are opening by themselves.
  • When there is serendipity in the air.
  • When you ask yourself: If I only had five years to live, what would I want to do? and that dream is right there on the list.
  • When you have prepared enough (you really have) and you just need to be brave and take the leap.
  • When you’ve got nothing to lose.
  • When you find you are jealous of others who are achieving your long-held dream. (This means you are closer than you think.)
  • If these people are your friends, then you are dangerously close.  Celebrate them and begin.

P.S. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that Mondo Beyondo is a great first step to take in the dreaming process. If you feel like it’s time to get clear about what your dreams are and/or take those first brave steps, I would love to have you join me! The fun starts today!!

Manifesting 2017! Just $20

manifesting_2017_500

One of my superpowers is creating spaces online where people feel safe to express their desires + fears and celebrate their joys. The New Year has always been such a rich time of reflection for me – a time to acknowledge how I grew this year, how I was brave, what was hard… and declare my year complete.

This creates a beautiful space to vision what’s to come. What does your heart truly want in 2017? Where is your spirit calling you next? What do you secretly want to happen?

I’ve been guiding this mini-manifesting workshop for years in a live setting + decided to finally bring it to you in an online format! You can gather friends for this process, take some time do it privately or join us in the classroom for an experience in community with other kindred manifesters!

In this (instant access!) mini-course you will find:

Steps to complete your year with power + compassion
Consciously creating 2017
Mondo Beyondo list-making
Choosing your word of the year

P.S. You can take Mondo Beyondo + Manifesting 2017 as a bundle for $99.

Wow. You all made my day.

Thank you.

Your notes in response to my newsletter yesterday filled my heart up in the best way. When I wrote that note I wasn’t sure what I was looking for, but once I received your energy, kindness, love, it was clear – I needed to know that we are connected to each other. I hope you felt it too!

And guess what? After reading several of your responses, my inner wisdom kicked in and told me clearly, “Get outside. I know it’s raining. Put on your boots, bring your camera, and go visit those trees. Beauty will be your medicine today.” 

I was astounded by what I saw and wanted to share it with you. Because you are part of this story! And of course, the trees are the most grounded creatures of all and when we are wobbly, it’s good to be near that solid energy.

With love + gratitude,

Wobbly times.

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 12.16.46 PM

I’m feeling wobbly over here. Quiet. Not sure of anything anymore – should I keep going with this business? Does the work I do matter? Will I be able to continue making a living this way? Why does everything feel so scary in the world right now? 

When I shared this with a friend this morning, she reflected back. “If you’re feeling this, your community is feeling some version of this too.”

How are you doing out there? Feel free to hit reply and share… or just say, me too!

I need to know we are in this together. I’m guessing we need each other more than ever, right?

My art has been a refuge this season. I’ve been hunkered down in my apartment making necklaces from colorful glass beads and listening to podcasts. It’s meditative work that I have always loved… and I’m grateful I get to do it. In a world where everything seems to be virtual, ephemeral, in pixels… it’s so nice to make something I can hold in my hands and imagine putting into yours.

I have a final batch of necklaces ready to go if you’d like to get one this season!

Grateful for all of you on this list.
Grateful for your kindness and your open hearts.
Grateful I get to be a little part of your world.

With love,
Andrea
