Know Your Singular (Genius) Work.

Know and honor the value you offer.

You have it. You simply need to commit to it, see and recognize your singular gifts/lens, and actually give it the form it deserves.

It can be scary for some because it calls on you to grow in sometimes very uncomfortable ways.

YOUR SINGULAR (GENIUS) WORK IS BIGGER THAN YOU.

It leads you to remember the person you already are and meant to become, except programming and even trauma can distort your perception and disconnect you from your singular agency and truth, which has everything to do with your genius. 

These may sound like simple concepts, and they are, but time and time again, the nuances of them are what make the biggest difference.

It's not enough to just slap a big price tag on your work, you also have to deliver and know how you SPECIFICALLY do that. 

(Unfortunately, there are too many doing that.)

...and WHY your approach actually matters.

But sadly, a lot of people are stringing random steps together and “building it as they go” or “intuiting it”with very little intentionality, making their clients the ultimate guinea pig, and sometimes at a high price. Or they are following a step-by-step linear process that has been passed down a good few years which is completely devoid of any substance from the creator. 

This is *not* how you become a master.

It’s the way a lot of people are taught in this industry, but what they don’t see is they are living in the shadows of their mentor(s) and dependent on keeping up….with visual branding, being entertaining, presenting only a version themselves, being “a personality”, showing your expensive purchases and experiences…

None of which are wrong or even ineffective, BUT if the focus is *only* on that, you are missing an opportunity of a lifetime, which is to truly give form to that which only you can.

Exploring and deepening your work so you can powerfully represent it so it truly leads others in new, profound, and radical ways.

And money in some form or another can present all the survival programming at the onslaught of deciding you’re ready to confront that which you’ve been avoiding (for perhaps a very long time).

The reason why most people experience cycles of earn and burn, over spending, mismanagement of money, recurring debt cycles, and challenges around raising their income, savings, and investments is because they have (unconscious) programming (and even trauma) related to *each* part of their money, which create internal 'set points' that need to be *specifically* identified and dissolved...

Our internal set points develop very young and are not just mental concepts pertaining to your cognitive programming, but that which get wired into your body: nervous system and energy centers, including the emotional cellular level. We also receive and experience information through the body; hence, why a psychosomatic approach that works on multi-levels is essential.

This why despite having a high financial/business acumen, you may experience frustrating patterns that continue to either set you back or stall your progress or simply cause you stress and distraction.

Or why despite making more money each year, you may experience a sense something missing, more guilt, working harder, more stress, spending more and losing track of your money, or you feel like it’s never enough.

It causes unnecessary stress and can further perpetuate hidden beliefs that money is stressful. 

This is not just about receiving more money, it's important to understand your specific interpersonal dynamic to *each* part of your money affects how you manage, handle, and grow your money, yes, but ALSO how you experience your money.

Because if you’re making increasingly more money, except you experience increasingly more stress, or you’re still holding back in some area of your business or the work you’re creating, it will all feel like a struggle, compromise, or things are hard, which is  typically reinforcing and amplifying a belief that has been present all along. 

It’s not just about the what (results) but the how (your experience of those results) that matter to me.

It can feel “safer” to operate from expertise, the known.

It can become its own crutch.

To become a master requires more of you.

It requires a deeper trust in yourself, versatility, and awareness of your singular gifts and wiring.

When it’s no longer about “getting it right”…

Instead, it’s about showing a new way ~

(And that calls on something deeper in you)

WHY RESILIENCY SHOULD BE ONE OF YOUR #1 FOCUSES 

RESILIENCY: one of *the* most important things you can build within yourself *now* (or ever) as you grow your business, develop Your (most profound) Singular Work and represent it, so you can demonstrate true influence, while receiving and managing the money to support it.

Challenges are inevitable when it comes to building and growing a business.

It's not just about the flow, it's also about the ebbs which is where many fold.

I do not take this for granted, and *why* it is an ever present part of the work I do.

This is *not* about going to the spa, meditating, or doing CBD.

Have you ever heard someone say, "Your reality is created by your reactions?"

This is essentially what our patterns show us. It is a reflection of our behaviors, which include our defenses (reactions) and triggers which are commonly unconscious and can be very subtle and even seem mysterious.

Nothing shows you this better than your money. (At least the way I approach it.)

As you become increasingly more successful, addressing these exquisite layers of programming becomes even more important as they can have the greatest effect:

⚡️Making higher investments

⚡️Bigger credit lines and expenses

⚡️Receiving and managing more money, people, opportunities

⚡️Creative problem solving

⚡️Elevated critical thinking

⚡️Stress levels 

⚡️Fluid and confident decision making

⚡️Ability to make deeper and finer connections

⚡️Distinguish yourself with courage and grace

⚡️Refine your communication so it is an effective bridge between your desired client/opportunities and your work.

⚡️Courage and charisma to follow through on your most singular ideas and expression.

⚡️Potentiating your work in new directions; innovation

WHY I address *each* part of my clients' money: debt, income, income goals, savings/investments, as we each can experience different challenges related to different parts of our money and each has its own (layered) cause.
And why it's important to uncover it using specific and intentional processes along with a scientifically proven psychosomatic approach to dissolve it at multi-levels:

How the best interpersonal work is strategic.. ...

If you try to communicate to everyone, coming from a need to be understood and “liked”, instead of from a place of elevated awareness and deeper connection to Your Singular Work, you risk *not* being truly recognized by the very people who will both appreciate and celebrate you. 

I’m speaking to those who have been in business for a while, in fact. It’s very easy to fall prey to the spell of simulacrum all in the name of survival. 

Not everyone is ready for you, except marketing teachings, whether subtle or overt, have sadly taught and led you to reaffirm that you must be something you’re not in order to be accepted ( = $$$).

This isn’t about rebellion, as that would still imply resistance; instead, an organic individuation that comes from honoring your singular genius and knowing what you are here to share, with gravity.

As you grow and evolve, your work and business must too.

Except, as simple as that may sound, this is often where many people can experience feeling stuck or trapped.

This can look a few ways and of course is experienced in a variety of ways depending on who you are.

I had a good friend who grew up in the projects and rose to the upper echelons of the art world.

The higher he rose, having his work included in the most prestigious collections and museums, the more pressure he experienced, along with a disconnection to his work. He had a strong desire to explore new ideas, experiment, and move in new directions with his work.

Except, he felt bound to his older work, upon which his reputation was built.
 
He didn’t feel in control, to put it simply.

It felt like a risk to step back or even to fully allow new developments or exploration of new ideas and questions.

Galleries and collectors had their expectations and, therefore, demands which absolutely connected to both money and reputation.

This was not about a lack of money, attention, or recognition.

He quickly recognized the terms were not on *his* terms, and he was slowly suffocating.

I could only listen and give whatever consolation I could at the time then…

If only I could have shared what I both know and *apply* today. 

The more money offered to him, the more he seemed to sabotage himself, unconsciously trying to create more space and control, except, instead, he experienced more insecurity as a result…

Making bad decisions and then reneging on those decisions which only made him appear even less in control and lose even more authority of his work.

Your interpersonal dynamic to each part of your money has everything to do with Your Singular Work and how you represent it.

I destroyed amazing opportunities because of my fears finely interrelated to money, and more specifically, authority, which money will absolutely show you.

That’s why it’s essential to address your interpersonal dynamic to each part of your money at multi-levels.

It’s dynamic and complex, as are you…

IT’S ALL AN ILLUSION….

Ever hear that?

I’m sure you have. 

It’s mentioned in the a lot of Eastern philosophy teachings, motivational sermons, marketing sales pitches masked as New Age “cutting edge” or “leading edge” philosophy evangelizing “the new paradigm”.

The delivery, intention, and depth is where the distinction lies.

You might read long missives on quantum this and that and feel really empowered…for a little bit.

Until you find yourself sinking right back into your ever comfortable and predictable 'safe' (read: known) illusion.

I'm very sensitive to dogmatic teachings, whether it’s the polarity teachings that tell you how to be “feminine” this or a “masculine” that. Or the teachings that tell you what success looks like or how you should make, spend, value your money. What your life should look life if you are ________. Or binaries: right or wrong, good or bad, positive and negative, dark and light…as they create labels (rules, limitations) and undermine nuance and all the in-between and non-connotative I value most.

I believe in honoring my own divine wiring and truth and acknowledge that freedom is actually a far more terrifying thing than most care to admit, which is why so many people live unconsciously in their head, disassociated, addicted to stress, believing in a false sense of control they're actually terrified to examine and let go.

I’m pointing a finger directly at my (past) self. It took daily panic attacks to direct me down another path, and boy did I fight it 😅

There’s a time when theory, and intellectual teachings, and motivation aren’t going to cut it for you anymore. I'm grateful that it was far sooner for me than later. But I was certainly pushed by a force I would once have said was outside me.

When you can no longer stand to invest in more of the same. Whether time or money. When you’re truly ready to get to that finer layer and go to the seed.

When you experience a radical transformation from within which is completely unattached to any need for a bank account flex, or to claim an expensive material object, or mad influx of leads or attention....

WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR MONEY, GO TO THE (LAYERED) ROOT.

I see way too much attention placed on people's “stories” related to money, which keeps them stuck on the surface, trying to analyze every thought and event and then mask it with a positive counter thought, action, or mantra.

Or afffirming, journaling, or visualizing…

Besides, your “stories” are endless.

MADNESS.

When you get to the (layered) root cause of your beliefs and patterns, your stories and behaviors change.

This is absolutely true for each part of your money, too.

Money connects to everything: safety/security, love, self-image.

We have a lot of deep (deaf) beliefs about money which trigger very specific (silent and unconscious) emotions which can create a barrier to bigger intentions related to your money and that which it connects.

“It just doesn’t make sense!” I sometimes hear.

Especially when it comes to specific parts of your money, which is why no matter how high your financial/business acumen and all your “right” actions, you still experience frustrating and mysterious challenges.

Beliefs develop from programming and trauma.

Patterns are a byproduct of your beliefs, programming, and trauma designed to keep you 'safe' — in the known — despite consciously frustrating you.

I have worked and spoken to a lot of highly creative and intelligent people who get 'stuck' at certain income ‘set points’, experience creative fears and limitations, or remain in hide-in-plain-sight “hide outs” not allowing  themselves to be truly seen no matter how much action they take or how much (more) they learn and invest. 

This is how quiet and powerful it can operate as your unconscious is 30,000 times stronger than your conscious “thinking” brain.

This has nothing to do with your level of intelligence.

When you drop below the surface of your 'problems' and identify the true (layered) cause, things change rapidly.

You begin the process of releasing the energetic and emotional charge that keeps you tethered to a long consciously forgotten past.

HOW YOU MUST ACTIVELY WORK WITH YOUR INTERNAL 'SET POINTS' RELATED TO *EACH* PART OF YOUR MONEY IN ORDER TO TRULY CHANGE YOUR MONEY AS A *WHOLE*…

I commonly hear from people who have built 6+ figure businesses or those who call in coveted contracts: “I don't have a worthiness or deserving issue. I've already worked on that.”

Except, they're still not earning the money they say they want, or they’re tired and stressed,  or when it comes to truly giving full form to what I call Your Singular  Work, or working with the people with whom they genuinely desire, they feel a twinge of “not good enough…yet”.

They’re still cutting themselves out of the very important picture of experiencing the expression of their singular gifts, fluidly creating from their singular lens, and demonstrating true influence while communicating from a place of profound gravity. 

And reason is generally because they have typically only addressed it at the mindset level (cognitive) not at the level of the body: nervous system, energy centers, and emotional cellular which requires a comprehensive approach and experience.

Are you more stressed?

Still over functioning?

Working long hours or working harder than ever now that you finally started to experience more money?

Living in your head while trying to control what feels more and more out-of-control? 

Meanwhile, you feel more and more of your life-force slipping away along with your inspiration, intensity, joy, and love for your work?

Perhaps you once believed that making more money would solve your “problems”, and allow you to feel more free and whole, except the opposite is true.

Often times people can experience more stress and tension when they start making more money which can perpetuate a deeper (hidden) belief that money is stressful or 'not safe'.

Stress is the #1 way people shut down their highest faculties such as creative problem solving, critical thinking, resiliency, imagination, and intuition.

Over delivering or over giving is a common symptom of guilt or embarrassment that shows up for people when they cross an *internal* income or savings/investment 'set point' which is develops very young (first 7 years of life).

🖤 Most people are surprised to experience where my work takes them...

BECAUSE MONEY IS COMPLEX AND DESERVES A CUSTOMIZED AND (INTERPERSONAL) DYNAMIC APPROACH.

It's not about typical money mindset, which I define as that which addresses *only* your thoughts and feelings (which are mental) and conscious, using top-down approaches (mind-->body) such as affirmations, incantations, visualizations, meditations, journaling, ; instead, I use a comprehensive psychosomatic approach to include BOTH a top-down AND a bottom-up approach (body-->mind).

Because if you don't address the emotional (vibrational) at the cellular level and the energetic related to the nervous system and energy centers, it can feel like a lot of unnecessary struggle. 

You need to sync up your body to your mind in order to experience more authenticity, life-force, inspiration, enthusiasm, vibrancy.

Your body holds your pain and your power and is the motor to FOLLOW THROUGH on your most potent and sincere ideas/expression. 

But first, you must uncover what is unconsciously operating which many top-->down approaches miss and why they only take you so far...not far or deep enough.

I go to the unseen and 'unfelt'.

I go to the root which actually *causes* frustrating financial patterns: income plateaus, over spending, earn and burn, poor and repeated decision-making, fear of investing, poor or stagnating savings, repeated and growing cycles of debt....NOT just the symptom....

So they can experience raising their income and savings/investments without pushing; less struggle, shame, and guilt; more ease and pleasure that money can bring; intimate connection to themselves and their work so they experience greater insight and awareness; better relationships; less stress and tension, especially to daily life and business, ESPECIALLY as they start making A LOT MORE MONEY as that can amplify financial beliefs and patterns.

That requires going to the unconscious and “forgotten”, which has the greatest affect on your results and *how* you experience your results ...your body knows 😉

It's not about typical money mindset, which I define as that which addresses *only* your thoughts and feelings (which are mental) and conscious, using top-down approaches (mind-->body) such as affirmations, incantations, visualizations, meditations, journaling, ; instead, I use a comprehensive psychosomatic approach to include BOTH a top-down AND a bottom-up approach (body-->mind).

Because if you don't address the emotional (vibrational) at the cellular level and the energetic related to the nervous system and energy centers, it can feel like a lot of unnecessary struggle.

You need to sync up your body to your mind in order to experience more authenticity, life-force, inspiration, enthusiasm, vibrancy.

Your body holds your pain and your power and is the motor to FOLLOW THROUGH on your most potent and sincere ideas/expression.

But first, you must uncover what is unconsciously operating which many top-->down approaches miss and why they only take you so far...not far or deep enough.

I go to the unseen and 'unfelt'.

I go to the root which actually *causes* frustrating financial patterns: income plateaus, over spending, earn and burn, poor and repeated decision-making, fear of investing, poor or stagnating savings, repeated and growing cycles of debt....NOT just the symptom....

So they can experience raising their income and savings/investments without pushing; less struggle, shame, and guilt; more ease and pleasure that money can bring; intimate connection to themselves and their work so they experience greater insight and awareness; better relationships; less stress and tension, especially to daily life and business, ESPECIALLY as they start making A LOT MORE MONEY as that can amplify financial beliefs and patterns.

That requires going to the unconscious and “forgotten”, which has the greatest affect on your results and *how* you experience your results ...your body knows 😉

...

You are ALREADY worthy and deserving of the money, love, safety, security, prosperity, respect, and abundance.

The reason I speak so much about programming and trauma in the context of money, which absolutely affects other areas of your life as money connects to everything, including and especially your creative work, is because THIS is what causes attachments, limits, frustrating patterns, blind spots, resistance, and fear to your greatest Truth with a capital T.

It can be subtle, absolutely layered, but extremely powerful because it narrows your lens to possibility, manipulates and distorts your energy, and triggers emotions that lead to actions and behaviors that don’t serve you. It blinds and disconnects you from recognizing and experiencing your immense agency. 

It keeps you living at default. 

This has nothing to do with your level of (financial) education and acumen or even intellectual intelligence. This comes down to survival programming which starts very young and relates to the unconscious.

You can talk about abundance, prosperity, infinite possibility, and miracles in an attempt to override your true feelings about money, but you might as well be reading a grocery list. It won’t move the needle. Even if you seek help from energetic healers or study spiritual teachings or explore self-development books and classes, you won’t be open to infinite possibility that exists in every moment or great ideas sparked from within you if you’re in survival mode.

This is why I always start here BEFORE we move into other territory. It’s tremendously important and fundamental to allowing, managing, handling and sustaining more money and opportunities. 

Because if you don’t feel safe at the deepest (unconscious) level, you will create insecurity no matter how much money is in your bank account. 

Where I go with clients upends your conscious understanding of your relationship to each part of your money and even your inner world. It’s never really about money. But it can certainly reveal a lot.The power within you is immense and it can lead you to radical new directions and expressions.

WHAT YOU TRACK GROWS 🌿

As my clients continue to uncover and dissolve the multi-layers of programming, beliefs, and trauma related to each part of their money, which goes deep into the unconscious, it’s also important to engage their conscious ‘thinking’ brain.

An important part of rewiring your brain is to track your money and your “wins”.

Our survival brain is wired to be on the look out for danger. It’s often said we have 3 brains and the most primal part of our brain is the amygdala, shown to perform a primary role in the processing of memory, decision making, and emotional responses (including fear, anxiety, and aggression), the amygdalae are considered part of the limbic system.

And part of its function was to be on alert for “danger”. It’s also what is responsible for fight-flight-freeze response.

As a result, most are naturally wired  to see the “negative” or what’s “missing” or “not enough”.

Now I am careful to mention this as the common approaches we hear are “just think positive” or “focus only on what feels good” which does *not* resolve deeper challenges related to money or other things quite frankly. It can also undermine critical thinking or critique which is important for innovation, problem solving, and creative elevation.

It can cause hardcore bypassing and leave people stuck, disassociated, fragmented, and unwilling to confront that which is calling your attention to start taking radical responsibility.

This is why it requires a comprehensive approach.

Why You Must First  Identify The *Actual* “Problem” You Need To “Solve”…Or Risk Focusing Your Energy (And Money) And Attention On The Wrong “Solution”

In order to ask, receive, manage, and grow your money so you can experience true financial wealth while developing and actualizing Your (most profound) *Singular* Work...

(It's easy to fall into, especially as someone who is genuinely interested in supporting your work and business with integrity and ingenuity.)

The real 'problem' is rarely needing *more* information, strategy or tactics — that’s generally the easiest part and what is concentric to Your Singular Work.

Especially in your case, as you already know and have invested in the many 'things' that one needs to know and do.

It's HOW you *apply* it all so it actually 'works' for you and your desired aims.

And you probably already understand this to a certain extent, if only intellectually, but finding the right approach can prove more challenging.

There are plenty of people with whom I've worked who have high financial or business acumen who STILL experience frustrating patterns related to at least one part of their money or their business/creative work which effects the whole.

My former accountant used to share this all the time (RIP).

He had clients who continued to increase their income each year, sometimes by as much as $300,000+, and they still ended the year at nearly, more or less, the same financial point as the year prior.

And this is way more common than you may think, especially for advanced creatives and business leaders who are running specialized businesses and running their own show.

We've heard about the rock stars, professional athletes, lottery winners who acquire a lot of money or sign phenomenal contracts, sometimes multi millions of $$$, except in a short amount of time, find themselves broke or even headed for bankruptcy.

One of your greatest faculties is your imagination, so you can further create, share, and experience the never before imagined. 

The other is intuition.

Except, when it comes to either or both, it's important to understand why most people do *not* employ or follow that which is singular to them...

And how programming, beliefs, and even trauma can create distortion, disconnection, confusion, and shut down.

That's why I place so much emphasis on paradigm work (beliefs, patterns, programs), addressing it at multi-levels: the mental/cognitive, the nervous system, the emotional cellular, and  the energy centers when it comes to creating anything new or making radical and important changes.

You can create from either fear or desire.

And sadly, most of us are NOT taught to honor our desires; we're taught to stay safe and comfortable in the known...

Which is why working through the lens of *each* part of your money is a powerful and *specific* way to address the layered cause of your specific fears and patterns related to survival and safety -- at least the way I approach it ;).

☠️It can feel unsafe to move outside what others have decided about you and your work.

☠️It can feel unsafe to gain a lot of attention, recognition, and/or be vulnerable.

☠️It can feel unsafe to receive a lot more money, work less, pursue and give form to more radical ideas and expressions

☠️ It can feel unsafe to voice and share your point of view and stance in the context of your work, especially when demonstrating your singular gifts/lens.

Yes, it generally doesn't make sense because it's emotional...and at the most unconscious level...

Meaning at the deepest most conditioned and programmed level, and it gets wired into your nervous system.

To the extent that you don't even notice or recognize its influence.

I have an long running joke with the cosmos...

Whenever I present a confirmation of sorts, I am always kicked back a contrary truth. Now I just wait when I say something deeply affirmed to see how I'm going to be proven wrong.

I once asked my best friend the night before I was set to board my flight to London to move there: "Do you think you could ever be in a relationship with an Asian man...I mean from Asia, not Asian-American?"

Note: I was only 18 and had a deep respect for the culture. I think Asian studies might be the only course in university I received an A+ because of my obsessive interest. I was simply coming from the standpoint that the cultures seemed so distinctly different, I wondered if that would cause too much dissonance, philosophically speaking. 

When I arrived to London, on the 3rd night, the most beautiful, tall Japanese man walked into my new friend's room to ask if he could borrow something. I couldn't take my eyes off him. He had a towel on his head that was wrapped in such a way that is common amongst Japanese men. I thought it was the coolest thing. I couldn't stop staring and studying his style, clothing and movement. He softly juggled a soccer ball as he elegantly dragged from his cigarette with a grace and finesse I had not yet witnessed from a man. A week later, we started hanging out as we had identical interests: art, techno/electronic music, soccer, fashion, vintage shopping, and adventure. 

We became inseparable for 4 years, traveling and discovering the city and Europe together and later Japan. He was my first love; a truly beautiful person I am so grateful to have known in my life; a Libra, October 9. And yes, we did have challenges arise due to our cultural differences.

When I moved to New York, I had another boyfriend that ended painfully for me...and us. It was a case of still being in love, and even addicted to each other, but there were too many fundamental things that made it not possible.

I was lying in bed with a friend visiting from Berlin, and we were going through the Zodiac discussing which sign was a good possibility for me, and her.

There are 2 major constructs into which we are born: time and money.

Both entirely made up.

Except each of us was programmed to not only think about those 2 things in very specific ways, but — more importantly— operate.

Which is why if you genuinely want to develop and represent *your* work *your* way, it requires a few things:

1. Uncovering your *specific* programming related to money which naturally includes beliefs about time so you can dissolve it at multi levels: nervous system, emotional cellular, mental/cognitive.

Programming is mental, emotional, and energetic. It is through modeling, repetition, hypnotic suggestion, and trauma.

2. Allowing your (latent) singular gifts/lens to emerge and be giving form through Your Singular Work and communication. This requires seeing all the ways you hide and hold back; all the parts you have disowned or undermined which are integral to your singular distinction.

3. Communicating and representing Your Singular Work with authority. When you’re bringing radical new ideas, concepts, and expressions to the proverbial table, it’s important to have clarity around your aims, intentions, and/or active questions you’re exploring so you can direct the work as it is meant and that includes how you communicate it. I can’t tell you how often I have watched artists or leaders clap back at people in high status quo positions who tried to ridicule, undermine, or misrepresent the work because they didn’t understand it or value it. That’s your job to represent it (even protect it) as it is meant. But too many people don’t take the time or give their work the attention it deserves and why so many  copy and/or follow others.

4. Context. Where are you sharing your work? Who are you talking to? One thing I see is too many people, as a result of programming, are talking to the wrong people; those who will never get it or appreciate it. They don’t see how they are doing it which reinforces their deeper beliefs that they are misunderstood, not valued, no one will invest (at a higher price), or not worthy or deserving of recognition.

It comes down to the foundations: Money paradigm, Your Singular Work, Communication.

You're right. 

You don't have to truly SEE or fully understand your work in order to 'get' clients or ‘attract’ opportunities.

You can make a lot of money *without* looking at this.

You can continue to parrot past mentors.

You can sound just like the others in your masterminds and group programs…

Or patchwork the last ideas and programs you studied and followed and STILL make a lot of money.

You can definitely rely heavily on (and hide behind) your personality, your lifestyle pics, your visual branding…

Or lean on *only* your expertise, while AVOIDING honoring your singular gifts/lens that would allow you to claim entirely new space to  demonstrate and lead in new and radical ways, changing how others perceive and experience your area of focus and devotion…

So that you actually experience new versatility, creative freedom, and even mastery, which has everything to do with leadership.

Selling (and marketing) is an amazing skill that can easily conceal a valuable truth…

Just because you are good at them, doesn't mean you are in touch with the more profound work you originally set out to do.

It can be the most alluring distraction.

Except, you know —privately — that you are not — in fact — creating and representing what I call Your Singular Work. 

Work that comes from and represents the deeper finer aspects of yourself.

Work that includes — most importantly — your currently latent singular gifts/lens comprised and supported by your education (formal or otherwise), training, history, empirical knowledge, experience, and wiring. 

Work that you designed and know is truly singular to you (singular as unique, exceptional, rare.), allowing you to experience an entirely new level of authority….

In every fiber of your being.

Without being codependent on the above.

You have not been asked or required to truly (( look )) at what Your Singular Work actually is….

Because it’s not actually needed in order to make a lot of money, which you already know.

In fact, I might go so far as to say it’s *not* encouraged by a good percentage of this industry to really ((( look ))).

If you want to be a better leader, business owner, professional creative, or critical artist….

You have to stop avoiding your fear, pain, and resistance.

I’m talking about the unconscious fear that is embedded deep into your cells and psyche that manipulates your energy,  directs your behaviors, and creates blind spots.

That includes topics such as each part of your money, trauma, visibility, and the uncomfortable emotions that sadly too many ‘gurus’ direct people to avoid so you will continue to be dependent on them for their dopamine hits in the form of motivational speeches or surface guidance that keeps you coming back for more.

It’s not too different from the drugstore pills or pharmaceuticals one pops to get short term relief and cope, only to find they need more and more; meanwhile, they are dependent, and not free.

If you see those topics as off-limits, then I think it's worth asking yourself WHEN?

I’ve had so many clients say similar things: I’ve wanted to work with you for a while. 

In fact, it’s one thing they mildly reproach themselves for: delaying, waiting, putting important things off…

Which are all forms of resistance, which prevent one from making fluid decisions that truly serve them best.

And it’s true, my work is not for the faint of heart, as it sincerely is advanced transformational work, and will rock your world. I am not invoking hyperbole. It requires you to be committed to the things I talk about all the time. It’s also why I give the support I do which is very hands-on and customized to each of my clients.

When are you going to address these important topics beyond the intellectual, so you can finally experience what is on the other side.

Emotional freedom.
Authentic self expression.
Financial freedom.
Unconditional creativity.
(Self)compassion.
Physical health.
Vitality.
Well being.
Love.

It takes courage, yes, but those things are waiting for you.

When you decide to stop the A. VOID. DANCE

…and, instead, confront what keeps you afraid and ‘safe’.

One of the foundational pieces that cause Advanced Creatives and Business Leaders the biggest and subtlest challenge…

THEY ARE *NOT* CLEAR ABOUT THEIR WORK

…there’s a lot to one’s work that most are not seeing or even guided to see, especially by most business coaches.

They may have some idea, but when it comes down to really understanding their process, singular approach, and how they truly deliver results.... it's vague.

They deliver excellent results in most cases, and have been in business for years, but they are unable to fully see and communicate the finer aspects that give their work depth and nuance and informs and demonstrates their distinction.

Instead, most people have been guided to leap frog into knowing their niche, message, avatar, and focus on sales and strategy, throwing a lot of money at visual branding...

And at best, guided to awkwardly state their “superpower” or “genius” without giving context so you actually demonstrate it or people actually care.

This causes them to NOT represent themselves with the same natural confidence and authority they need in order to command the space they most desire, despite being financially successful and looking good on paper. They want to elevate their work and communicate it with gravity.

One of the foundational pieces that cause Advanced Creatives and Business Leaders the biggest and subtlest challenge…

THEY ARE *NOT* CLEAR ABOUT THEIR WORK

…there’s a lot to one’s work that most are not seeing or even guided to see, especially by most business coaches.

They may have some idea, but when it comes down to really understanding their process, singular approach, and how they truly deliver results.... it's vague.

They deliver excellent results in most cases, and have been in business for years, but they are unable to fully see and communicate the finer aspects that give their work depth and nuance and informs and demonstrates their distinction.

Instead, most people have been guided to leap frog into knowing their niche, message, avatar, and focus on sales and strategy, throwing a lot of money at visual branding...

And at best, guided to awkwardly state their “superpower” or “genius” without giving context so you actually demonstrate it or people actually care.

This causes them to NOT represent themselves with the same natural confidence and authority they need in order to command the space they most desire, despite being financially successful and looking good on paper. They want to elevate their work and communicate it with gravity.

How your savings/investments represent safety/security. ...

Nothing I dislike more than seeing people suggest mindset tips to address trauma, especially when it comes to money. 

It demonstrates that they don’t,  in fact, understand trauma. 

Trauma is more than a “story”. The “story” is a symptom; trauma is the cause, which requires going to the root and addressing the nervous system, not just mindset. 

If one doesn’t actually understand trauma, and only just recently read a book about it, I suggest they get informed and trained so they can actually help people in this area; instead of trying to offer something they are not genuinely competent. 

This is a sensitive topic for me as I had experienced severe panic attack years ago, which was a symptom of trauma, and the number of times I was suggested mindset tools made me want to scream. It was not the solution. I’m grateful that with my diligence and lifelong love and care for myself, I was finally able to find the support I needed. It requires going much deeper. It’s a disservice to clients, otherwise.

How *Not* Communicating Your Work the Way You See It. Instagram post 17943233119557398

How *Not* Communicating Your Work the Way You See It. ...

If you *only* do interpersonal (money) work, except you're unclear about your work, your distinction, and *how* you deliver your results...

You risk *not* giving elevated form to your communication, your voice, or seeing the higher value of your work and for whom it is meant.

You risk imposter syndrome, instead of seeing that you are THE one.

You risk *not* fully representing yourself and your work with authority which is where true leadership begins.

Instead of being just "another ____" in a sea of many (I don't care how good your visual branding is.)

Except, there are also those who do not do the (advanced) interpersonal work; therefore, they fail to see and connect to that which is singular to them as it hides beneath a web of false beliefs, long running programming, and trauma, which has everything to do with innovation, creativity, and demonstrating true influence. 

It has everything to do with you seeing the truth of who you are and what you have to offer, including your life-force, inspiration, ingenuity, intensity, and love.

It's not one or the other, either/or...it's BOTH.

Most skip these 2 very important foundational pieces and leap frog into their niche, message, ideal client, marketing, sales....with zero understanding of what their actual stance is or WHY they take the approach they do, assuming they have one.

This goes for many mult-6+ figure earners. You can get far on following and regurgitating others, but there's a time, and maybe that's now, you will start asking different questions:

NOT *only* how can I make more money...

But how can I honor the work I am meant to share that invokes my singular gifts and lead with gravity...my way?

That is if you don't already value that ~

Theory vs Application when it comes to transformation. Instagram post 17908431836031874

Theory vs Application when it comes to transformation. ...

As much as I can appreciate profiles: Astrology, HD, Gene Keys, Myers Briggs, Archetypes, Enneagramm, etc...

If you truly desire to *allow* and honor your singular creative genius, you must transcend them...

So you can genuinely experience, explore, and create from the non-connotative, unknown, and radical expression we have yet to be exposed and know. 

Labels are definitions which keep us in our head with a false sense of control

Labels create limitation, even when they are flattering.

Time to dive deeper.

It’s Not Just Mindset, Contemplation, Meditation...Go Deeper. Go To The Root.

"If you want to experience exponential growth in your relationships, and your career, or just in your life, there is nothing more important and more pressing than healing hidden traumas. I’ve had the great pleasure to coach billionaires, hedge fund managers, CEOs, and celebrities— some of the most successful people on the planet. Every single one of them has behaviors that stem from hidden traumas , and every single one of them has benefited from healing the traumas. It’s a part of the human experience no matter who you are, what you do, and how good you think you are (or are not). The hardest part of this work is that your body will fight to hide it from you."

Dave Asprey, 
CEO BULLETPROOF

The operative word in this quote is HIDDEN, which relates to the unconscious and the nervous system. Understanding trauma, its effects, and how to dissolve it can be one of the most important things you can explore when it comes to being a business leader or advanced creative.

Feelings are not the same as emotions.

Feelings are mental and conscious, whereas emotions are *physical* and often unconscious and ‘unfelt’.

This is why when it comes to your interpersonal dynamic to *each* part of your money and your singular genius, it’s important to go to this level. 

Not just as information, but actually going to the root cause by uncovering and targeting exactly where it lives in your mind and body: nervous system, energy centers, and the emotional cellular. There are many burnt out, depressed, and anxiety ridden  people who are often the highest achievers.
.
Or people fearful to actually develop and represent the work they most value and is truly singular to them.

There is a spectrum to trauma; it's not just physical or sexual abuse. It can be emotional abuse that can be very subtle and fine. It can be caused by neglect, abandonment, witnessing another’s pain or tragedy, grief, being shut down or dismissed, deep disappointment, etc. And it's important to know the signs. Patterns and results are a big clue.
