Take The Leap

For some, the idea of the planets having any effect on us seems silly and outlandish. Many more, though, are learning about energy and how we are all indeed connected.

Today being April 1st, We’re not here to fool ya. The next six weeks are wide open energetically for expansion, growth, and manifesting the circumstances in your life that you really want. There are 0 planets in retrograde, which means every bit of energy is in favor of forward momentum.

Want to start a Business? Take a trip? See Family?

We want to see you do it! It can feel scary, to embark on a journey that your soul is calling you to that might confuse others around you. It can feel really unnerving to know what you want and have to leave people and things behind to make it happen.

I promise though, and this is no joke, that if you Jump and follow your heart, Spirit will catch you.

What Price will you Pay for Freedom?

Rebelling Against The Hustle…
The other day I was scrolling through social media and saw a quote pop up in an
entrepreneurial group, “Entrepreneurs: the people that work eighty-hour weeks to avoid working forty-hour weeks.” It was followed by several comments of entrepreneurs laughing about how true that was in their lives, but it was unsettling for me.

Why is it considered normal to work our lives away in the name of success? Why do we glorify prioritizing our businesses as number one with our time and energy? Does it really have to be that way?
In my first year of entrepreneurship, I spent a lot of time in the hustle mentality. Now, I didn’t work very long hours, but I was constantly pressuring myself with how to grow my business faster and generate more revenue. It consumed most of my focus. I felt like I constantly had to be “on” or available to potential clients, my social media, and the current clients I had. It was toward the end of that first year in the middle of a $20k launch when I decided I was done. I completely walked away from the launch, leaving a lot of would be money on the table. I
realized that I wasn’t enjoying the work that I was doing because I had put myself in burn out.

This is when I decided to rebel. I remember when one of my business coaches asked me, “What would it look like to rebel against everything you know about how to grow a business? What would you do?” I told her that I would work less and have more fun, focus on my family more instead of my business, trust more, and show up on social media less. Interestingly enough, this was the work I was teaching my clients. As a spiritual business coach, I consider it my job to help my clients detach from the fear-based way of growing a business and step into trust,
surrender, and pleasure. I fully believe that it is possible to grow your business without hustling. And as I share with my clients, you have to do the things that no one else is doing in business to have the business that no one else does. There is not one set way to grow a business. You get to write your own success story. What do you want your story to be? Business is eighty percent energy and twenty percent strategy, but I find that most entrepreneurs don’t really address the energetic aspect of their business. They’re stuck spinning their wheels in the name of strategy.
It takes courage to step out of the hustle and lean into trust and surrender. It takes facing our fears and knowing that we don’t have to do it all or be it all or prove to anyone that we are worthy of success.

I don’t know about you, but I got into business to have freedom. Time freedom, energetic freedom, and financial freedom. And because of that, I’m choosing to rebel against the hustle culture, and grow my business in a way that feels good to me.
Are you ready to rebel? What are you waiting for?

A Spiritual Woman in Law

Lively Chronicles is honored to bring you into connection with Alyssa Johnson. She is a Spiritual Woman who is here to share her story in the alchemizing of old constructs into New. We are pleased to facilitate this space and bring to you Alyssa’s Story.

“Conscious lawyering is what I’m all about. What is that exactly? We don’t hear much – or anything – about conscious lawyering. Law is supposed to be secular, mind over heart, facts over feelings. In reality, humans are complex and deeply emotional. And thus law is also complex and deeply emotional.

I used to practice law in DC. It was an exhausting, all-consuming, unrewarding experience. In 2008, I started exploring spirituality because I believed that there had to be more to life than working 80 hours/week. As part of my spiritual growth, I started working with light beings including an angel named Ariel. In 2012, she came to me in a meditation and asked me to start channeling her, which means having her speak through me. 

So I did. She and I now work together to help people expand their consciousness and experience more love. She brings through guidance for people from all walks of life who are in need of reassurance, support and love.

So what about conscious lawyering? When I left DC in 2013, I swore off law forever. But as I’ve done deep inner work over the past few years and continued my spirituality studies, my heart has opened up and I’ve been called to work with the legal profession again.

In a very different way this time. Now I’m focused on expanding consciousness within the legal profession. This means that I work with lawyers to help them tap into the wisdom of their hearts and act from that deeper place – rather than solely the cerebral place that we’re taught to practice from.

In my work with lawyers, I incorporate embodiment and integration tools so that lawyers learn how to listen to themselves more deeply, understand the inner messages they’re receiving, and learn how to integrate the information within their being.  

Our hearts are a gateway into greater understanding of who we are – a connection to our Souls and expanded consciousnesses. When we tap into that connection point, we’re able to see and understand ourselves from a greater perspective. We can then make choices from a greater place of understanding.

Operating from this more expanded place can greatly shift how we practice law. We bring more empathy and compassion to the table. We see our clients as whole and capable and we understand that our role is to help all of the parties have a resolution that feels good.

Law is transformed from “winner takes all” to “win-win-win”. And we start to see that our role is one of great service, great change, great love. That rather than being seen as the enemy, we’re a key piece in helping transform lives. That we’re healers, not pain inflicters. That we’re creators, not destroyers.

It starts with lawyers who are listening to their inner calling to be a changemaker within the practice of law. It starts with the wisdom of heart consciousness. 

And I help lawyers access that wisdom and act from that greater place.”
