    CONFESSIONS OF A RECOVERING CHAMELEON We all learn to people please on some level. I've learned that becoming a chameleon to avoid losing connection with some one or some situation is a form of co-dependency. Point is, don't feel bad or beat yourself up about it because this is how we've been trained and conditioned to show up with others. For now, NOTICE. Get curious. Why might you be fearful of losing the client, friend or loved one so much that you temporarily alter yourself to match your surroundings? To become what you think they want you to be (and is what you think they want you to be even true)? The client who hires you for Truth may not always like it when you deliver it. They may get angry or want to take a time out from working with you. They may lean in and tell you EXACTLY how they feel about you and what has been revealed . . . and that may make YOU feel uncomfortable. The people you are here to guide, support and co-create with are not here to be chameleons with you either. Even when you ruffle their feathers, they will come back. They will value the experience. They will appreciate you for hearing, receiving and taking a stand for them, even if they need a hot second to process it. Same for the people outside your business who truly matter to you, and you to them. How has being in chameleon energy impacted your business and/or personal relationships? chameleon

    Confession. When the idea to have a flower crown 👑 workshop as part of our recent Bold Heart Visibility retreat popped into my head, an old tired story also came in hot on its heels. "I am not crafty." I've heard and read more than a few times that we should tell our inner critic to shut up as the antidote to letting it run the show. To me, this feels like the opposite end of the stick. Ms. I'm Not Crafty had valuable advice for me. "Hire an expert to lead this session. Maybe attendees will have a similar thought. How might that actually be key to their breakthrough?" So I hired my colleague and friend Jeannine O'Neil of Magnolia Blooms to lead the session. "I'm not crafty" popped in again as I fumbled around with the floral tape (I had to take my crown apart and put it back together again twice). "Maybe you're not crafty, maybe you are. Right now how about we just have fun and see what happens?" Other people's inner critics came out to play too. We noticed them. We learned from them. Not by shutting them up and shutting them down. Not by believing them either. Simply by allowing them to have a voice. Acknowledging their presence. Getting curious about why they came to visit. Your inner critic is a part of you. Telling it to shut up is meeting negative self talk with more negative self talk. Next time your inner critic shows up, how about something along the lines of "Oh hey, what's up? What brings you around today?" Listen. Then trust that you can discern what is resonant, and lovingly release the rest. #sagesensationretreats, #shiftthefield, #newearthentrepreneurs, #selfleadership, #transformation, #raisevibration, #innercritic flower crowns

    As a world-changing healer, wellness provider or spiritual entrepreneur, you’ve heard many times that people prefer to do business with you when they know, like and trust you. This is a sound marketing principle, yet it may also be limiting your visibility without you even knowing it. There is a dark side of the know, like and trust factor, and it may be impacting your business. Learn what you can do about it here: https://gaylenowak.com/the-dark-side-of-the-know-like-trust-factor/ Dark Side of KLT

    It’s time to say what you want, BE who you are and show up in your magic. Whether you are a light leader, healer or purposeful New Earth entrepreneur . . . I know you didn’t come here to hide in the shadows. I know your fear of being VISIBLE in your business runs far deeper than stage fright. It comes from an emotional wound . . . (Was being seen risky for you when you were a child?) Or a collective wound . . . (Up to 100K “witches” worldwide were shamed, tortured & killed from the 14th to 18th centuries for being outspoken, different, “weird”. Was that you in a past life? Did your ancestors store & hand down that fear through your lineage?) Hiding the true you because it feels safer is an ILLUSION. What would change in your business if you risked letting your wounds lead you to greater compassion, creativity, acceptance, authenticity… These are some of the GIFTS wanting to come alive for you when you dare to listen to what your heart is telling you. If you’re ready to dance with your shadow right into the spotlight, then I invite you to my upcoming LIVE mini retreat from the comfort of your home. It’s called “Gifts of the Healing Heart: Stepping Out of the Shadow & Into the Spotlight” GET THE DETAILS & REGISTER https://wellnessuniverse.learnitlive.com/Class/Gifts-of-the-Healing-Heart%3A-Stepping-Out-of-the-Shadows-%26-Into-the-Spotlight/18807 GOHH August

    After working for several years with New Earth entrepreneurs, I’ve discovered some deeply rooted challenges that come up for transformation. Challenges like: -Fearing that your vision and message will be judged or misunderstood because it’s “too out there” - Being way too hard on yourself when you haven’t performed to your own standards - Experiencing the euphoric highs and the crippling lows as you ride a revenue rollercoaster - Finding time to nurture yourself, recharge and have fun - Over-giving and not prioritizing your own wants and needs (aka setting boundaries) - Overtly or covertly controlling other people to affect how they feel and respond to you What I’ve also discovered is that the path to filling up your heart, soul and bank account has far less to do with slick branding, marketing and sales strategies and much more to do with what you’re subconsciously (or unconsciously) carrying around within you. If you’re hungry for a safe space to look within and explore the deeper layers of yourself that are keeping your business out of the spotlight, I invite you to my new upcoming mini-retreat from home. --> Learn more and register here: https://gaylenowak.com/gifts-of-the-healing-heart Gifts of the Healing Heart: Stepping Out of the Shadows & Into the Spotlight Wednesday, June 23 at 10 am Pacific/ 12 pm Central/ 1 pm Eastern Time You'll discover: - How unresolved childhood experiences, ancestral patterns and suppressed emotions are keeping you invisible in your business and your life - How receiving the truth, even when we don't like it, empowers you and others - A process that uncovers the impacts of a wounded heart on your specific business, and what new energies and possibilities are available going forward - Why healing your heart expands your purpose and prosperity - What steps you can take now to shift into courageously showing up, sharing and soulfully promoting your business This is an interactive retreat, and my intention is to create a respectful and non-judgmental space in which we can get real about how we really feel and dance with our shadows. I will be sharing details about my own personal experiences with childhood abuse and emotional neglect, and the impact of them on my business. You will also have an opportunity to share whatever comes up for you in the retreat, but ONLY if you want to. I trust that you are able to discern what is OK and not OK for you to receive and share within this container. Gifts of the Healing Heart June 2021
