The process of writing this book was a step into more of the truth of who I am—not just me, Carrie Jolie Dale, but ME— the soul who came here to experience the fullness, the beauty and the true splendor of life.
Just because someone knows how to say “namaste,” meditates and reads spiritual books—doesn’t mean we give them their ghandi badge and that they somehow radiate white light out of their crown chakra and never have a bad day again.
Being spiritual doesn’t mean you don’t have shitty days, swear, digress and experience contrast or negative things in your life. It doesn’t mean you don’t eat some junk food every now and then or maybe react in a less than stellar way to a challenging situation.
I know meditation is a 10 letter word, but for many of us (who abhor sitting still for long) it’s more like a 4 letter word.
I tried for YEARS to fall in love with meditation. I tried to find inner peace, harmony and tranquility with this simple little practice.
And I just felt predominately bored, irritated, anoyed and frustrated from doing it.
Just like I have always wanted to do, but at times felt like . . .
- I couldn’t
- I shouldn’t
- People will think I’m a bitch
- They will see that I am flawed
- They will judge me
- They won’t opt in or I will lose subscribers
And it’s confession time—sometimes I hide from my true power. In fact, most of us do. Most of us don’t even know what our true power is, how to find it…. or if we even want it.
How do you know if you are hiding from your true power?
There is so much going on and the word “busy” has become the new anthem or badge of honor in our society. How many times do you hear from people how busy they are? More often than not, I am guessing.
It is truly amazing what happens when a group of conscious people come together for the purpose of personal growth, healing and stepping into beauty and truth. I just got back from an event in San Diego with some dear friends and one of my mentors—that’s us in the picture!
This event was inspiring, to say the least.
My biggest take away from this experience was a newfound love for setting intentions.
I know when this happens to me, it can be a bit concerning because I require my creative flame to be on almost all the time—in order to be productive and to accomplish what needs to get done.
How can you get back in your creative zone when that well seems to be empty?
Enjoy my first in a series of interviews with people I love and admire in the coaching, writing and entrepreneurial world.
We will chat about life, our businesses and family and of course how these great minds use the power of choice to create amazing lives.
My first guest is Jan Hoath of Nurture The Leader. She is a leadership coach and is doing amazing work to empower women to step into leadership roles in a conscious, authentic way.
