On March 16th, I was halfway through reading Cave in the Snow about Tenzin Palmo, one of the first Western women to become a Bhuddist monk. She lived and meditated in a cave for 12 years, 10 feet wide and 6 feet deep. She didn’t have a bed, only a meditation box that she sat in and meditated all night. No electricity or running water.
The past couple of months, I’ve gotten a little bit more serious about setting financial goals for my business. In the past, I’d basically set a goal for the whole year and then forget about it and not make my goal and then at the end of the year be like, “Oh darn it, I didn’t make my goal.”
But then I decided to build a business that’s sustainable and profitable. So I set some sacred financial goals for myself.
A few years ago, I applied to have my mental health professional profile put up on Psychology Today. I filled out the form and put in my credit card. And they said no.
Because Core Energetics isn’t as well recognized as other mental health modalities, they wouldn’t recognize me as a student. But they said that when I graduated, if I also had a bachelor’s degree in psychology or something related, then perhaps I could be recognized.
I’m a deeply spiritual person, but sometimes I pretend I’m not. I used to pretend when I was at networking events full of lawyers and judges for the non-profit organization I worked for. And recently I realized that I was pretending not to be spiritual on social media and with you, my newsletter community.
I was going to write about healthy boundaries today but I was so inspired by the events of this past weekend, I had to write about this. [Stay tuned, I’ll be sharing even more about healthy boundaries next week!]
Where were you when you heard that the election was over? (Seriously hit email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me!! I want to hear your stories and I’ll probably cry all over again hearing what happened for you!)
