Creative Spiritual Women Best Week Ever

You know that the Keys to Unlock Your Potential are those precious little beauties called Questions. The right questions open you up like a treasure chest and unleash your best self, and the “wrong” questions will assume you’re a victim, like, “why did this happen to me?”

So let’s use questions proactively. Let’s find the best questions we can possibly ask.

How can I make this my best week ever? [Read more…]

How to Use Jealousy to Your Advantage Creative Spiritual WomenAh, the familiar tinge of jealousy.

Here’s how I define it in my life: jealousy arises for me when I see something that I want, but don’t think I can have (for whatever reason.) For me, jealousy is not wishing the other person didn’t have it (I can’t recall the last time I actually felt that) but simply wishing that I could have the same thing, and thinking that I can’t.

I see something that I want and I think I can’t have it, or shouldn’t.

There’s a subtle message here. [Read more…]

The Keys to Unlock Your Potential

by Crystal Belle

Creative Spiritual Women The Keys to Unlock Your Potential
We all have hidden treasure chests of potential inside us. I believe we feel it and connect with it when we see others living their potential, and we feel that familiar tug of inspiration or jealousy.

Many of us have no idea how to access or unlock that potential. We seek books, programs, resolutions, goals… all trying to figure out how to get the magic formula to make it work. [Read more…]

Formula for Business Explosion John Demartini

 

This year, I’m focusing more on my Creative Spiritual business, because it’s time to make a difference in the world in a way that aligns with my soul’s purpose. I realized I had an excellent tool in my toolbox that I’d forgotten about-John Demartini’s book, “How To Make One Hell Of A Profit and Still Get In To Heaven“. In it, like a surprise gift, he included this 10-item “Formula for Business Explosion.” Of course, I had to share this with you- for all you Creative Spiritual Women who are also business owners, entrepreneurs, and CEOs.

– Know your business purpose and objectives.
– Organize your financial house.
– Focus on high priorities.
– Fill your mind with what you’d love and allow no idle time.
– Know your costs, set your fees, and stick to them.
– Continually raise your standards and fees.
– Organize your place of business so it’s clean, efficient, and beautiful.
– Throw away anything that doesn’t serve your priorities, and throw away anything you wear that doesn’t make you feel like a multimillionaire.
– Put your heart into your business.
– Treat your business with love.

DeMartini, John (2004-03-01). How To Make One Hell Of A Profit and Still Get In To Heaven (pp. 146-147). Hay House.

I particularly love “throw away anything you wear that doesn’t make you feel like a multimillionaire.” This isn’t something I’d thought of in relation to my business, but it makes sense to me right now. Which ones resonate with you?

Please take a moment to pin, tweet, and share this post. Thank you!

Love,

10clues

[Note: You can download the accompanying worksheet at the end of this post. Fill it out only if you’re serious about finding and living your purpose.]

Our life’s purpose is woven into our DNA. We’re wired to do exactly what would make us come alive, support us, and help the world. 

We’re also navigating life with a net of fears thrown over us, obstructing our view and making it more difficult to walk around in the world, let alone running joyfully into the tasks of our purpose. 

But if you look closely, you can see breadcrumbs in your life that lead you back to your purpose.  [Read more…]

CSW Tee Shirt

I was on the phone yesterday with my dear friend Sally and she had to go because she had a scheduled phone call. But it was one of those conversations where we were on a roll, just bouncing ideas off each other in rapid succession, coming up with all sorts of fun things to do.

ANYWAY,

Sally hung up, because she was already late for her call, and I was vibrating with the energy of our thoughts, and she calls me back, delaying her call even more, just to tell me that I should do a CSW tee-shirt, that it would go great with my book and people would want them. I had 10 minutes so I said to her, “Okay, I’ll create one right now.” and before she was off her phone call, I had it created and launched in a slouchy, Parisian-street-cafe style that I love. 

So I shared it on Facebook thinking, “Sure, one person will probably buy it.” 

And then it blew up. We tipped the campaign, and more shirts flew off the virtual shelves.

So I thought, okay, wow, lots of other Creative Spiritual Women actually want this shirt.  

That’s why I’m telling you about it- I only shared it on FB and Twitter and I don’t want you to miss out. There are 6 days left to buy. (I launched this through TeeSpring, which has a deadline before they print all the shirts and send them out.) So after Wednesday, they’re gone.

Click here to order yours (and one for a friend, because you give the best gifts that no one else has :)

Love,

Crystal

Can You Change Your Values?

by Crystal Belle

Can you change your values?Lately (and in response to overwhelming interest from CSW readers) I’ve been doing a lot of work on “purpose”- what it means, how to discover our purpose, and how to live in alignment with it once we’ve found it.

For me, I’ve also discovered that purpose is inextricably aligned with my values.

I was lucky to find my purpose without knowing my values- but I’ve been stagnant sometimes in fulfilling my purpose because I didn’t understand the ways in which my values were actually hindering me from moving forward. [Read more…]

A Humbling Question

by Crystal Belle

Here’s a question I’m going to ponder tonight, and, I hope, every hour for the rest of my life. You’re welcome to ponder it, too. Let me know what you come up with.

What can I do right now to make the world a better place?

PS: Here’s a great video to put things into perspective, too.

Creative Spiritual Women- Getting Comfortable with Uncertainty

In my last post, I talked about the fear of the unknown being greater than our suffering. Lately, I’ve been more aware of my fears and “anticipated suffering” and, being more aware, I’ve lessened some of those fears.

The other night my husband was holding our youngest daughter, who is almost a year old. They were both happily eating rice together at the table- for the baby, that also meant throwing, pawing, squeezing… ahh, all the things that babies do. I was crawling out of my skin with discomfort as every rice granule hit the floor… because I was anticipating having to clean it up. I said something sharp to my husband, who responded, “She’s having fun. I’ll clean it up.” My shoulders relaxed and I thought to myself, “okay good, it’s on him.”
