Nourishing Tools. My GoTo Tools Don't Stop At Digital.

Updated: Nov 22

Nourishing tools for Balanced Businesses.



Me and my business are one and the same thing. I AM my business. My business is ME. I have never believed there should be (or is) a segregation. Work - personal.. although we have been told that for centuries. I bring all of me to my business. Yes ALL of me.! I channel through my business. Angry, determined, vexed Andrea gets shit done. Quiet, peaceful, emotional Andrea creates - with heart.


We spend the majority of our time at work, and our time is our life so - why on earth should it not be something we choose? Something we enjoy? Something we CARE about? Why should it not feel peaceful and balanced?


Don't you feel then that the 'work-life-balance' takes on new meaning? The balance becomes about you. Finding that all-important balance between body, mind and soul. Surely - that's the holy trinity!? Would love to hear your thoughts on this in the comments below.


I yearn for a safe, peaceful working space for all of us, where everyone is fully SEEN and accepted. I pray for an environment for all where there is no need to edit oneself and where vulnerability is strength and creativity praised.


I've been lucky to have that and it was a choice. I have worked for myself all my life. I have never had a boss. I've created every job I have had. I have forged a career from my own raw skillset time and time again. It's not been an easy ride but -I'm proud of that now at the age of 50. I haven't been in the past, because society told me not to be. I was the outcast. Finally, it is celebrated!


I recently found out I am a Manifester by Human Design. We make up 9% of the world's population. This makes sense to me.


I'm a Pisces Sun with a Leo Rising and a stubborn Taurus moon (which perhaps led me to Gozo, an island covered in calcite crystal - but that's another conversation). I have learned what I need to balance my nervous system and experience peace in my life.

  • I live in a quiet and peaceful place.

  • I moved close to the sea.

  • I swim.

  • I meditate.

  • I have loooong periods of silence.

  • I write.

  • I stare at my dog. (Those eyes!)

  • I sing.

  • I dance.

My surrender was real. Sacrifices have been made. I miss family and friends ALL THE TIME but my internal authority has to govern my existence and I need as much freedom as possible to live my life and carve out my destiny according to my own rules.






So...why am I telling you all this?


Well - quite simply, to maintain the flow. I understand more about me now than ever. One of the many gifts of getting older. That being said, and as I am committed to continuing my journey of self-exploration and there are certain tools I need to tap into to support and guide me. They change all the time but I feel as a woman in business in these times, it's important we talk about and share these things. Things that were hidden in the previous paradigm. Things that need to be visible in these, our times.


 

By checking in with the SELF regularly you start to learn what you need and where you need to be. I have taken this one thing seriously for the past five years. I have never compromised that time and have always given myself regular check-ins. Even if they have been brief. This looks different for everyone...but if in doubt, ask yourself...

  • How am I right now?

  • What do I need?

  • How can I get that?


I'm currently studying with Danielle LaPorte. It's a leadership programme. It's heart centred. It's exactly what I need in this moment. It will enable me to help serve those I need to and continue to keep my businesses conscious and growing. It's a programme being taken into corporates to heal the nervous systems of their internal structures and a programme that will enable potent, intimate one on one sessions.


Yesterday we talked about how we heal the world. A phrase on countless lips as we read daily, about our heartbreaking times.


The resounding answer was, that we start with ourselves. We heal ourselves. These are traumatic times and we are energetic beings who pick up on all energies from anywhere. Our trauma. Past trauma. Our neighbours trauma...it goes on. Our nervous system will have the most direct response to that trauma.

Therefore we need to understand what it needs to feel peace. We need to CREATE peace. If you create peace for yourself, you will by default, create it for those around you.

What a gift!


There are many souls leaving the planet right now and those that are still here have a job to do.

my current mantra - Shantideva

Shantideva was a great Indian Buddhist master who lived during the 8th century CE. Two of his texts survive - "Engaging in Bodhisattva Behavior" (Bodhisattvacharyavatara) and the "Compendium of Trainings" (Shikshasamuccaya). Both texts are still used to the present day by and especially "Engaging in Bodhisattva Behavior" is one of the most cherished and most frequently taught texts in the Tibetan tradition.

Shantideva wrote The Bodesatva way which coined the belief that we will continue to come back until all beings are free of suffering. I believe that too. I believe we are in this together, for the long game. So it is up to us to heal and help heal in this lifetime.

We in this together, for the long game. Its up to us.


Look for his APP - it gives you daily quotes from his texts.



I LOVE THIS PRAYER and it is even more poignant at this time...






May I be a guard for those who need protection, a guide for those on the path. A boat, a raft, a bridge for those who wish to cross the flood.

May I be a lamp in the darkness, a resting place for the weary,

A healing medicine for all who are sick, a vase of plenty, a tree of miracles.

And for the boundless multitudes of living beings, may I bring sustenance and awakening, enduring like the earth and sky,

until all beings are freed from sorrow, and all are awakened.

Shantideva


my current nourishing MEDITATION

My quiet time is essential for me to function. I function better if I have had time for me. Time to sit quietly and stare into space. To dream. To feel. I connect to my higher being and hear necessary guidance and strengthen the synapses from there to my heart and gut.


If I don't, I'm a mess!


This is my current favourite healing meditation used to pray for healing energy for our friends, family, and ourselves. It taps into the energies of the sun, moon, earth, and the Infinite Spirit and is great for healing at a distance, as it cuts across time and space. You can send healing energy to someone miles away or in the same room. Practicing the mudra and the mantra will optimize energy flow and will make this meditation all the more powerful.


Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung: The Ultimate Healing Tool


Mantra: This mantra consists of 8 basic sounds:

Ra Ma Da Sa, Sa Say So Hung





Translation:

Ra is the energy of the Sun: strong, bright and hot. It energizes and purifies. Ma is the energy of the moon: receptive, cool, and nurturing. Da is the energy of Earth: secure and personal. It is the ground of action. Sa is the impersonal Infinity. The cosmos in all of its dimensions, openness, expansiveness and totality is Sa. Sa is the impersonal Infinity. Say is the totality of experience and is personal. It is the feeling of a sacred "Thou." It is the embodiment of Sa. So is the personal sense of merger and identity. Hung is the Infinite, vibrating and real. The two qualities together (So and Hung) mean: "I am Thou."



May this or some, be helpful to you.
