If you are an entrepreneur you have probably struggled with confusion and overwhelm, and maybe you are still struggling.  In the beginning,starting your own business can be quite challenging. We want to learn everything we can about business and our particular service and how to market it. Before we know it we are in overwhelm – information overload.

I know that well. To compound matters, I am a Gemini. I love to learn new thing, and I am not satisfied with sticking to any one thing! I am all over the place with my interests: Art, Spirituality, Healing, Coaching and more. Can any of you relate?

Early on, I gave myself permission to diversify. My first model was Walter Russell who lived in the at the turn of the last century; a renaissance man who, with his wife Lao, devoted his life prodigiously to the arts, philosophy and science. One of his quotes is “Mediocrity is self-inflicted. Genius is self-bestowed.”

His genius lay in his total focus, “gathering thought energy into a high potential and using it in the direction of the purpose intended”* So, what I learned from that (but have not followed very well) was I could have several interests, but in order to be productive I must focus totally in the direction of what I want to accomplish at any given time, and cut out all distractions. (*The Man Who Tapped the Secrets of the Universe. By Glenn Clark)

My next model was Joseph Campbell, who died in 1987.  He was considered the world’s foremost authority on mythology. I heard it said about him that in his late forties, he still did not know what he was going to do when he grew up.  A scholar, he was interested in anthropology, biology, philosophy, art, history and religion.  For him life was an adventure.  When his university adviser pressured him to narrow his area of study, he reputedly said “to hell with it” and gave up his doctoral studies to go in the woods to read.  What came of all his studies was his book The Power of Myth, which wove together all his interests.  If you have a variety of interests, are you wondering how you can weave them into one offering that is uniquely yours? That has been my challenge!

Thirdly, I came across Burt Goldman , a contemporary mystic, teaching Quantum Jumping.  It is a method he devised for accessing any skill he desired to have, with amazing results. He teaches how to access a twin self in another universe, there being many universes and many versions of you.  Now that expands the possibilities! According to Burt Goldman, you could become a successful “you” in whatever field you choose, as Burt Goldman himself has demonstrated!

So, if you are feeling overwhelmed and feeling guilty that you cannot settle on any one thing, take heart.  One of the coaches I studied under, Suzanne Evans, wrote a book whose title she often repeats, “The way you do anything is the way you do everything”.  I despaired, because I circle around and around in my interests, never settling on any one.  Then I decided that though she meant it as a deterrent, I could see it as an advantage, remembering Joseph Campbell’s seemingly scattered mind as being very fertile and creative ,  able to create something entirely new.  So, if there is a missing piece to make it all work together for you, ask your twin in another universe! (Burt’s series of MP3s, Quantum Jumping, can be found on Amazon.)

Breakthrough Transformational Coach

Thoughts create an emotional charge in the autonomic energy system.  E-motion is intended to motivate your reptilian brain into fight or flight, for your protection. In fight or flight, the energy is released and you come back into equilibrium.

If we have learned that good girls or boys don’t fight, or don’t cry., or that  it is selfish to want something.  That emotional energy gets bottled up.  We may have developed strategies to stay out of our feelings, perhaps by rationalizations or “shoulding” ourselves.  Then that energy or life force gets constricted in our muscles in various parts of our bodies.

Constricted energy feels like pain and robs us of passion and the   joy of living. Underneath the pain is sadness, sorrow, anger, grief or other emotions that we have not allowed ourselves to feel. Those are from the stories we have told ourselves.  Every telling adds more stuck energy.

Energy is just energy.  When we focus all our attention unconditionally on where the energy is stuck we are allowing it to express and release or move of its own accord, until all the stuck energy is spent.

Focusing on the peace that remains, and the light, love and life force that are the natural state creates a physical change in the neural pathways, and in the flow of energy in the body.

You can always find peace about any situation, no matter what it is.

My specialty is helping people release the stuck energy and find peace, and then they are able to feel passion!

 

Reflecting on reflections and on this world I create as a looking-glass, I thank all the beings I bring into my life so that I can learn who I Am.

You reflect me, as surely as I reflect you.  How wonderful to dance before the mirror of ourselves and see the pattern we make together, kaleidoscopic in its richness!

When you came into my life with all your troubles, I saw only your pain, I did not see my own.   But as I danced with you, something inside me said look, listen to the words you speak and heed them for yourself.  Oh yes, I opened up my eyes and saw that you and I are dancing the same dance.

You are at the end of your rope, you are in a dead end job, you’ve retired, your children have all left home:…Whatever your situation,you have a restless feeling that there is more to life than the daily grind.  You sense there is a deeper meaning to life than this.

I empower women to move out of an unsatisfactory life situation into a life that is crying to be expressed.  I help women identify what makes them come alive and coach them through a transformational process to where they confidently begin to live an inner directed authentic life.

You want to do your part and begin making a difference in the world.  You know there is a cause you would like to get involved with in a big way.  You know you have talents and gifts to share.  You just don’t know where to begin. Maybe you are afraid to step out into the unknown.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone believe in you and guide you through your transitional process? Wouldn’t it be nice to know there are others with similar interests, people with whom you can interact and with whom you may team up ?

How big is your pond? Is community action your thing?  Do you want to make a bigger splash?  Is the world your oyster? Do you have a big dream?  I’ll help you identify what your soul wants to do and together we can work out a plan of action for you to have a more meaningful life.

If this has piqued your interest, give me a call and we’ll set up a free exploratory session to see if you want to work with me toward  an expanded vision for your life and a fulfilling career..  You may call me at 931-256-7932 .  Or you may Skype me at charlotte seager.  I look forward to talking with you.

“…this last generation (1994 and 1995 ) would have to reach deep within themselves, to choose the path of love, harmony and compassion.  This is the path that would carry them gracefully through times that the Hopi call the days of “purification.”” ( Gregg Braden Walking Between the Worlds, p.82).  Could he be talking about the Indigo Children?  Drunvalo Melchizedek says anyone born after 197(2?) is an Indigo child.  The challenge being for them to remember to live in the heart where they will have all the information they need in order to  fulfill their life’s purpose at this time of Humanity’s need.   

It is the year 2026. For Awakening Now, Foundation for Inner Peace is a flourishing retreat center and non-profit spiritual education center.   It is in Northport Michigan at the tip of the Leelanau Peninsula, where the energy is great for spiritual work.  There is a presentation hall in town, with the guest speaker suite and business offices upstairs (there’s an elevator) and a whole foods bar at the street level.  The building also houses a fitness center.

A few blocks away, on Grand Traverse Bay is the Foundation Hall.  Here, on every floor there are classrooms, a meditation room, and salon for casual meetings.  This is where retreatants can rent rooms while they participate in the programs.  Each room will be outfitted and owned by a sponsor and will have the sponsor’s name on a plaque on the door.  For example: “The Quan Yin Room-Ruth and Andrew Watkins”.

A short drive out into the countryside brings you to “The Farm”.  This is where the organic foods are grown and serves also as the campground for the more adventuresome participants.  There will also be a barn or tool shed and two lodges on site. The view from here is spectacular.  You can see Lake Michigan and Grand Traverse Bay.  It has been five years since the peninsula went organic, so the air is clean and pure.  The bees are beginning to make a come-back!
