    Shift Entrepreneurial Failure into Success

    Shift Entrepreneurial Failure into Success

    Carla enters the podcast with the feeling like she's failed as an entrepreneur monetarily even though she's had success on the surface. She feels like she's been stuck and blocked in a pattern of working other jobs to make money and doing things that make her heart sing on the side.

    This is a common challenge many of us face as entrepreneurs. We do work that we don't love to make money, and do work we do love on the side, but fear of making money, or feel blocked in making money, or give away our gifts or services for free.

    Having a clear intention for everything we do, tells energy where to go, ranging from having a clear intention for the podcast conversation, to a directional intention for work that we do in the world.

    Carla realizes in the podcast that she has chosen entrepreneurial ideas that came from her mind versus heart. When her ideas came from her mind, she felt pressure and did not experience success. But when her ideas come from her heart - meaning she experienced a challenge, found a way through, and wanted to share and serve others - she feels free and ready.

    In this episode, we also discuss the energy of money. When money doesn't know what you want to do with it (meaning you are not coming from the heart, and you are not intentional, and taking action on the intention), money doesn't know what to do with you, and for you.

    In the podcast we clarify intention and money as an energy, as an exchange. Our vagueness, or our clarity, will bring the type of monetary exchange (vague or clear).

    Listen to how I coach Carla on the distinction between making money "off" our work and "through" sharing our work. Making money "off" our work creates pressure and heaviness. Making money "through" sharing our gifts and receiving exchange for those gifts creates flow and abundance.

    Old energy around money can be something that enters or we pick up from other people (like our parents or environments when we are younger) that we carry and it gets to a point where it no longer serves us.

    Oftentimes these energies get stuck, trapped, or go unconscious. In the podcast Carla brings consciousness to the old energy so she can channel all of her life force to that which she deeply desires to share through her work, creativity, gifts in the world.

    Carla realizes that she never gave a voice to the abuse she experienced as a child and that was part of the block. As she clears the old energy out, her voice opens, she claims abundance.

    Shortly after we recorded the podcast, Carla openly shared on Instagram about what she experienced and what she wanted to create. It is amazing to watch Carla thrive and expand.

    Listen to Carla free herself of the old idea of failing, being stuck, not being able to make money doing what she loves, into feeling free, feeling open, and receiving abundance.

    Topics we discuss in this episode:
    - How to move through feeling like a failure as an entrepreneur.
    - The trap that many feel around working a regular job for money while doing what you love on the side and making no money.
    - The different energy and success that happens when we create a business from the mind versus our heart.
    - The power of intention in business, conversations, healing, money success.
    - Shift from the idea that we "get" money into "exchange" with money as energy .
    - Understanding that our blocks are oftentimes energy that are not even ours.
    - How to free ourselves from blocks, and how giving a voice to past abuse or trauma frees us from being trapped by it in the present.

    If these topics interest you and you'd like to learn more, here are some of my favorite books for a deeper dive into running a business and working from our heart (not from the mind), as well as money as exchange and energy (not something we need or get): https://www.gwendittmar.com/products

    Heal and Use Trauma with Magamama

    Heal and Use Trauma with Magamama

    You'll want to take notes during this powerful conversation between Gwen & Kimberly Johnson, founder of the Magamama tribe.

    In this episode the women dive deep on issues regarding the many facets of women's pelvic health and open the floor to discuss what it means to be a Jaguar, a term that Kimberly has coined to represents a full completion of a healing journey to wholeness as a human. Kimberly is the creator and practitioner of Jaguar Work that guides women to a place beyond where conventional therapy often leads...past the victim stage (where we recognize our trauma) and the survivor stage (where we use our trauma to our benefit)... to a fully embodied and empowered life where our trauma is not the reference point for all that we do. You'll learn how trauma narrows our vision and can lead to a misinterpretation of the world around us and how our bodies are often more trustworthy companions than our minds.

    You'll also hear how unhealthy use of social media and "over-therapizing" can be detrimental to our social nervous systems. Discover new perspectives that value personal activism as a more effective practice than "self care" and how our culture oversimplifies the vast spectrum of trauma and healing. Be inspired by this vulnerable and eye opening conversation and leave with a future vision of wholeness for ourselves and our children.

    This discussed this week include:
    - Women's pelvic health and traumas
    - The spectrum of trauma that our current culture over-simplifies
    - How our trauma narrows our vision and delivers un-truths
    - How our bodies are more trustworthy than our minds
    - Effects of vaginal steaming/anesthesia/surgery
    - Benefits of midwives over gynecologists/doctors
    - Working willingly with menstrual cycles
    - What it means to have a healthy social nervous system and how it differs for women
    - The micro-worlds we exist in through social media and their effect on our psyches
    - How to fully close a healing cycle through body work
    - Unique rites of passage for men and women

    How do we know if the pressure we feel around producing results is helping us or hindering us?

    In her fertility journey, Amy feels pressure to begin medical procedures to help with conception. In her heart, she feels her baby will come from continued work on herself and trusting in the natural progression.

    So, how do we know who to listen to?
