me and my dog Lucy, in the mountains of Panama, making a “life requirements” list.
There I was, sitting in my living room, downloading my favorite
weekly audio horoscope. (Yes, sometimes I’m “woo” like that.)
This horoscope always blows me away. Every week.
And there is always a question to ponder towards the end.
And this week’s questions came…
“This week, Lisa, I want you to get really clear on the difference
between knowing what your soul wants… or what your ego wants.”
THat one really left me thinking.
Not because I’m not doing what my soul wants.
And not because I have no awareness of when my ego is in play.
But because the ego is such a tricky little sucker, that I find
I constantly have to go back into myself and make sure I am making
choices for the right reasons. Especially as my influence, visibility
and impact increase.
And recently, I’ve been talking to and witnessing a lot of entrepreneurs,
(friends or current/potential clients) artists and other visionaries who
are being massively shaken up and are questioning why they started
their businesses/projects in the first place.
(Here we are in front of the jet that took us from Panama City to our secret location, with
Dyana Valentine, who I brought down to be our Oracle-In-Residence for the week!)
I’m just fresh off returning from my Fearless Feminine Leader™ Mastermind
in the beautiful mountains of Panama.
We stayed at a gorgeous (super secret) location in one of Panama’s most
beautiful spots. An area with five waterfalls, overlooking a jungle canyon at
the foothills of a beautiful dormant volcano.
It was such a mind-blowing experience, with intensive workshopping on
leadership in life & business.
It wasn’t just the women who were expanded after this experience,
I was too.
That’s the beauty of doing work that comes from your deepest calling–
what gets created in that space is beyond all of you, it breathes you
and expands you to hold more of your purpose.
We talked about the essential qualities that create a leader that impacts the
world in a big way, worked out 2014 vision statements and found the “why”
in the work each woman does.
We did all of this amongst hot tubbing in the afternoon while
overlooking the sun setting over the mountains, shopping at the local
market for artisan wares & having hours-long dinner conversations while
watching fireworks light up the night sky.
