If you’re in the conscious relationship space in any capacity you’ve probably heard some buzz phrases like feminine / masculine energy and polarity. This is essentially the yin yang of relationships, which isn’t only relevant in our romantic lives, it’s also present in our businesses.
The dilemma for the female entrepreneur is that she often spends too much time in masculine mode. This is normal because business (especially entrepreneurship with it’s many moving parts) takes a lot of mental capacity, which is a masculine trait.
Running a remote business takes a lot of technical skill (again masculine) and it takes time to learn those parts. Building the websites, editing the videos, formatting the sales copy.
This is the foundation. The Structure. The Architecture.
So take a moment to celebrate yourself. You’ve come so far! And the hardest part - the heavy lifting, is over. Now it’s time to slip...
As a female entrepreneur it can be overwhelming with all the business tasks that constantly need attention. Here’s three ways to leave anxiety at the door and shift to a more peaceful, relaxed & inspiring way to run your business:
#3 | Get A System In Place To Support All The Moving Parts
There’s plenty of pieces in business that need our attention. Clients, content creation, planning our next launch, doing interviews and marketing, and what our next growth strategies are for social media. When there’s a lot of things to manage and make space for, it’s key to have a supportive masculine system (think calendars & schedules) in our business to allow for the fun, creative feminine energy to come out and work her magic.
Biz Alignment Prompts: What do I actually want to be doing? What would it look like if it was easy? What can I outsource here? How can I be more effective at batching my content on certain days of the month?
In ancient times, women of a tribe or community would gather together during their bleed to support one another. However in today’s modern world, most of us have become desensitized and disconnected from our bodies by use of synthetic hormones and perfumes, invasive birth control methods and media manipulation which have incrementally separated us from our innate wisdom and intuition.
But Truth can only be suppressed so long. The reality is that there’s a mass spiritual awakening occurring, and together we’re ushering in a new paradigm not just for conscious female entrepreneurship, but true conscious leadership in all areas of our lives including health, romance and business.
Here’s our 2 favorite rituals for deepening the relationship you have with your body, blood and the inner knowings that reside within you during this time of the month:
Ritual 1 - Give Your Blood To The Earth.
What you’ll need:
How would it feel to have a deeper feminine faith in the way you run your business? Knowing that everything will get done, you can work on the projects that inspire you, and you can trust your intuition to guide the process?
Here at Cyclical Living, we’re a community of conscious female entrepreneurs who believe that alignment is everything, and today we’re sharing the 3 ways our community & clients run their businesses differently and how you can too:
#3 | She Meditates First & Strategizes After
Alignment is everything. And the Conscious Female Entrepreneur knows that when her business decisions are backed with the right energy, her desires come into form way faster. It’s truly about getting into alignment with what your soul wants to offer rather than what the industry standard is. So before you do anything, whether it’s something bigger like launching your next course or high level 1:1 offering, or something as simple as making your next...
Do you ever get to a point in the month when you start feeling agitated about your business? On one hand you’re feeling stoked and proud of yourself because you just spent the last couple weeks getting so much done. But now you feel exhausted and frustrated because you realize you can’t sustain that pace all the time, and so you start spiralling into self criticism.
Your inner dialogue might go something like this:
Wtf is wrong with me?
Why can’t I seem to figure this out?
Maybe I’m not cut out for this…
This is way too tiring trying to be ‘on’ all the time.
Here’s the thing. You’ve just spent the first couple weeks of your period cycle in the Follicular & Ovulation Phases. So it was natural and easy to feel super creative, to show up online consistently and to overflow all your juicy content to your audience.
But moving into your next phase, it’s a totally different...
Increase your Earning Potential by Syncing with your Innate Cycle
Biz babes I understand, you're constantly on the look for the next strategy, the next launch, the ‘do it all’ method, to take your income and business to the next level. Yet, you feel inside there is something missing or your feeling the struggle of ‘doing’ when your body is asking to rest. Perhaps you have no clue, but you're here reading! Have you ever questioned where am I in my cycle? You know, the one we receive every month! The Period!
Self-care and embarking on a path of personal development are trending in the world of entrepreneurship because IT WORKS! Businesses are finding they are feeling more enjoyment in their work, have less stress, increase their income and sales effortlessly, and positive mental health.
But….. we as women are still following the path and linear system that is working against us. We aren’t listening to the medicine that sits between...
3 things you need before hiring a web designer and launching a site.
Understand your core message in business.
Define your ideal client. Who they are, what are their pain points, and what are they looking to experience.
Create your core offering for your ideal client. What pain point are you solving?
After these three things you can begin working on the copy for your website, graphics and photos, along with your branding experience (colours, fonts, messaging, and more).
Then, hire the web designer! When you have everything together it make the design process so much easier for them and yourself because your clear, you know who you serve, and they can help bring it to life.
Remember you will edit and change things eventually. You’re website doesn’t need to be perfect to launch it but it does need to be clear so your audience understands who you are, what you do, and how they can work with you.
If you have been following along for some time you will know space is everything to me. Especially the physical space that I am in. The environment we are in has SO MUCH impact on our internal environment. This means location, people, what’s in the space, the cleanliness, and energetics. Have you ever wondered why some places make you feel a certain way compared to others? I know for me there are places/spaces in the world that hold a certain feeling. I feel like this is why people travel back to the same place in the world many times; it’s the energy!
But within that energy of the space, it’s what’s in it physically. The physical items create energy just as much as the people in it. When I was living in Vancouver every new moon I would clean my room and shift things around. It was always a redecorating/purging day for me. This provided me the opportunity to get rid of items that I no longer used, clear any mental clutter (yes, this is a real thing!), and...
One evening early in our pregnancy I was beginning my preparation for our 120th-day celebration with kundalini and pregnancy which lead me into learning about the 40-day sadhana post childbirth. This of course lead me down a journey of discovering how interested I am about postpartum. Everything from nutrition, spiritual practices, the somatics, aura building, physically, mentally, and what we did years ago to support mama’s in our community. Many cultures share simple concepts around postpartum. Some call it “lying in” other call it “confinement”. Essentially this is a period of time where you do absolutely nothing but bond with your little one, snuggle, feed, rest, heal, and deeply nourish you and your little family. Each culture/lineage looks a bit different so I encourage you to explore and see what feels the most aligned for you and your family.
A book I couldn’t get my hands off was The First Forty Days: The Essential Art of Nourishing the...
Many of you that follow my journey and work with me know that Kundalini is a foundation to everything I do. It was a practice that landed into my physical space while I was living out in Vancouver many years ago. At first I was wondering what did I get myself into and why are we moving like this. But the feeling after class was like nothing I have ever experienced. Then the unravelling happened and I began to study and dive deeper into the teachings from Yogi Bhajan.
It is a beautiful practice to strengthen the nervous system and balance the endocrine system along with many other benefits. But specifically with pregnancy this practice can prepare your body, assist with letting go of fear, elevate your babies consciousness, and guide you through a journey of honouring the maiden to welcome in the mother.
Pregnancy is an initiation process for a woman. It’s a process of walking into the unknown, surrendering who you once thought you were, and welcoming...
