Authenticity is a risk at first. You're going somewhere you haven't been before and meeting that part of you, that energy, that personal expression. Authenticity requires you to be more YOU than you even knew was there before.
Authenticity requires giving words to your unique spark, your ideas, and your perspectives. It requires putting a part of you into form and expression. It is revealing, exposing, vulnerable, OPEN.
And this is where people get hung up. Being different, or special, or unique, or original isn't always desirable from an Ego-Mind perspective. It means stepping away from others' expectations of you, or preconceived notions, or breaking away from collective norms. It means moving away from your Ego-Mind's perceived safety of control, and into a fresh space that initially feels 'unsafe' and may cause your inner programming to freak out on some level.
"Leaving the pack" feels like a survival risk to the Ego-Mind. And this experience can trigger unconscious survival tendencies and fears, especially related to past lives where you died for being an outcast, or standing up for something, or speaking your truth. Many of us carry the hidden fear of persecution for being different or revealing more of who we are. On an unconscious level, you may have an inner message that says, “Breaking away from the pack = game over.”
Now you are able to re-work that programming. You are seeing that it is safe to speak your truth (no guillotines in the streets these days); you can be different than your local group of people (more people to connect with via the interwebs); and you can follow what is truly you because there is more support than ever before to do so. Truly.
From a Soul perspective, you wouldn't have it any other way. You are declaring your true power through your authenticity. And your Soul tribe is here with you to change these energies together!

"Now is the time to play bigger in our lives. Without apologies, without justifications, without false appearances. With only a foot on the gas pedal.
The fear of playing bigger can hold us back because it leads to many unknowns and potential let-downs. We may ask, Who am I to do this? Who am I to try this? Who am I to think I am special enough that this could happen for me?
The answer is you are exactly the right person to do this because you had the idea. You had the inspiration. You had the pulsing feelings and the vision of the possibility. You are the perfect person to do it and you are the best person to do it your way.
The reason? It is about being bigger than your previous definition of Self.
You are the only person who can do it your way - and that is what makes you perfect for this.
Playing bigger in your life doesn't mean you walk without fear or doubts.
Playing bigger means you recognize the fears and doubts sooner. You understand that every doubt is simply an opportunity to believe again. You choose to make your faith, trust, and power bigger than the temporary doubts.
Your wise Soul understands that this is part of the process and so you can decide to move through it with honesty, authenticity, and ease. You choose to accept the path ahead knowing you will be taken care of every step of the way.
And you are ready. Or else you wouldn’t have had the inspiration in the first place.
We are living in a time of Divine manifestations and synchronicities. More is happening faster and with less effort. More is being created than ever before. More is being shared with greater ease and joy.
Being a bigger version of you has never been simpler - or more needed. It is the best service you can provide to All because it increases the global energetic vibration and adds more Love to the world.
You are being Divinely invited to follow a bigger dream.
Go for it. Experience a growth spurt.
Step out. Announce yourself with your Soul energy.
Share your gifts. Be your heart. Say your wisdom.
And allow anyone around to be inspired by your increasing Light as you reflect back to them all the ways they can be bigger versions of themselves, too."

For the artists, inspired creatives, authors, healers, and spiritual teachers, I would bet you have creative passion in spades.
But maybe all of the numbers, data, and tech-y stuff of your business is causing you to struggle or get discouraged?
Business stuff doesn't have to be scary or intimidating.
Most authors and solopreneurs focus on their passion (yes!) but forget about the important business stuff (craaaaap) until it's too late. Or only when they have an uncomfortable meeting with their tax professional or financial advisor (gulp).
But before you even have to imagine a dreaded conversation about what you're NOT doing right, I can turn all of this business stuff around for you in a practical, easy-to-get it way.
Many people who are pursuing their creative passion don't know what it means to really run a business on their own - and honestly, it might not even be your strength.
But it is your responsibility to know it.
And I can make it easier for you.

The best use of your energy throughout the year may be in simply “holding the flame.” Spiritual mastery is found in allowing each person the full experience of their own energy so they can see their power in action. Consciousness can only be taught to those who are willing to listen and learn, or it is like relentlessly pouring water through a sieve and expecting drops to accumulate.
Take a moment to visualize yourself as a lighthouse. Feel grounded in the earth. Stable in your core. Strong in your posture. Bright in your third eye chakra. Radiate light out into the world intentionally. There is also a feeling of protection in a lighthouse. You are protecting your energy field and maintaining its vibrancy without exposing it to external elements and unneeded experiences.
Be vigilant this year about where your energy goes out into the world, and ensure it’s coming from a high-vibrational place most of the time. This will take practice because it will not be your first response in all circumstances to be high vibrational, and some storms will be harder to navigate because they are connected to one of your Soul lessons. Hold the intention of being an energetic lighthouse and light-shiner so you can consciously maintain your energy and elevate yourself to a higher perspective.
This is the energy of a Spiritual Being rather than a Spiritual Human. You are being an energy, offering waves of light, and trusting the energy to do what it must do. The practice of Being will be evident throughout the year as an intentional practice of grounding, shining, and loving yourself.

Consciousness is the understanding that everything around us has meaning associated with it. Everything has consciousness because everything has energy. Becoming more conscious is an opening to greater awareness about the interconnectedness of all things, including all energies beyond the realms of the five senses. Exploring consciousness invites expansion into higher levels of awareness.
From the words we say and the actions we take, to our food, numbers, rocks, animals, geographic locations, and everything else around us (a rather large category), all energies hold consciousness.
Consciousness involves many overlapping factors that contribute to an energetic whole. On an individual level, our emotions, thoughts, vocabulary, and actions all hold a type of consciousness that reflects our personal energy.
On a global scale, humanity is collectively creating a level of consciousness about the human experience, the planet, nature, and our responsibility to the earth. Mass consciousness is a reflection of our collective energy.
There are currently five dominant types of consciousness present today, co-existing, spreading, retracting. I am specifically identifying these as types of consciousness and not levels because levels implies hierarchy or dominance. Using the word type is highly intentional as a way to move beyond the polarities of good and bad; right and wrong; better and worse.
Each type of consciousness offers a different perspective, understanding, and opportunities for growth. Each type has value in providing information and describing experiences. Each type also allows us to choose what perspective is best for our individual, and collective, growth.

1. Trust Your Gut
The small voice that says “no” to a job offer or “yes” to speaking to a stranger is a reliable compass for decision-making in uncertain times. The gut delivers fast, immediate and clear messages if I’m willing to trust it. Allow that small voice in the gut to come to the microphone often.
2. Listen to Your Heart
Whispers of personal truth come through feelings. Feelings tell with immediate accuracy what I need in a situation. I’ve squashed these messages of truth down before, French-press coffee style, but the personal needs don’t go away. Listening to the heart’s true feelings allows my needs to be addressed sooner. Don’t ignore these messages.
3. Respect Your Mind
Besides being the home of every life memory,a stack of educational degrees and the list of all-time favorite beers, the mind pinpoints possibilities, actualities and liabilities. Allow the mind’s knowledge base to bring out areas of improvement, strategy and commitment. Use logic and practicality regularly. Respect what the mind says, but don’t let it rule over the other senses all the time.
4. Follow Your Spirit
Your soul’s eternal wisdom is always accessible through a listening connection to Spirit. Quiet moments of solitude and peace bring answers that can’t be found on a billboard or in an email message. Find quiet times to just be without distraction, and the soul’s beautiful wisdom will pour forth.
5. Alignment of Gut, Heart, Mind and Spirit = Goldmine!
Trusting, listening, respecting and following from every area of your Being leads to purposeful direction and action. The gut’s compass, the heart’s truth, the mind’s knowledge and the spirit’s wisdom illuminate the path that is for your highest and best good.
I like to call this combination the Pure and Utter Brilliant Path for Life Dream-making.
And who would want to settle for anything less in this fabulous life?

Everything we want to create comes down to intention. Our intention is our motivation, our WHY, the driving reason we want to do something.
If you are ever looking for deeper understanding around what you want to do next, take a moment and get clear about your intention. Hone in on how that intention feels for you and it will help you know what you want - and why.
So when it came to putting together this book, Modern Heroine Soul Stories, it was vital that all 24 contributing authors who shared their personal story were on the same page with our intentions.
And they were.
The Intentions of Modern Heroine Soul Stories:
We are opening up to share our journeys as rewarding, enlightening, and fascinating adventures into deeper soul wisdom. Putting it all down on paper allows us to see ourselves in a whole new way. And when we share the wisdom, we connect with thousands of other women who can (possibly) relate on some level, too.
We are allowing our journeys to be a source of timely inspiration for more women who are looking for support and understanding. These 24 experiences could be exactly what someone else needs to read about in order to understand their own lives better. The ability to inspire with our private life journeys is beyond measurement.
We wish to take our personal narratives and transform them into a vessel of ongoing abundance for more women around the world. Together, we offer a special book with powerful messages that will benefit women from war-torn countries as they rebuild their lives. Then these women create ripple effects of change in their families and communities. The abundance continues on.
We really hope these 3 intentions connect with you -- and that the book is one you will cherish for a long time.
I hope you will connect with us over on the new website as our collective books brings you inspiring messages that resonate with what you are moving through right now.

We are living in huge transformational times, no doubt about it, but remember you are exactly where you need to be at all times. Enjoy this post and see where it connects with you on your journey now.
I heard an interesting tidbit yesterday that feels very appropriate for where we are right now after the three summer eclipses. If you are experiencing any type of massive change in your life, or feeling 'different' then before but can't quite describe it yet, you can probably relate to this little fact. Here it is:
A plane ride to Hawaii from the West Coast takes over five hours to cross the Pacific Ocean. Along the way, there is a point in the route where the plane does not have regular contact with air traffic control on either side. The plane has successfully left one land mass for another, and yet hasn't reached the official air space of the other air traffic control tower.
For two hours, the plane is flying without any outside assistance to provide guidance, direction or navigational support. The plane must rely solely on it own internal instruments, knowingness and effort for this leg of the journey. (Except if there's an emergency, that is!)
When I heard this fact, I instantly felt that it described what I'm feeling right now about a few things. I know my inspirations are heading somewhere... but I can't see or connect to the landing destination yet. I know it's out there and coming into view soon... but all I see right now are fluffy, full clouds.
Are you feeling two hours from Hawaii at all, like you are in-between destinations? Are you wondering if "things" are really happening and moving along, but can't see them yet? Are you questioning if you are even expected for arrival on the other side - and when is that going to happen?!
Here are 6 ways to direct your energy during this in-between stage:
- Remain focused on your original intention. Check your internal instruments to ensure they are all atuned to the same intention. This will guide you successfully, even when the controls are set to coast and various dashboard lights are blinking away.
- Stay on course with what you really want. Really, really want. No "shoulds" allowed! Shoulds may lead to emergency landings.
- Trust yourself. Trust that everything is working perfectly for you right now, even if you can't see it, feel it, or know when it will all come together. Trust that you are being so Divinely guided as a safe, perfect passenger.
- Honesty-check: It's okay to feel uncertain about the ride at times. Get up, walk around, breathe deeply and engage other passengers. Release the energy physically and verbally instead of allowing it to build up in the mind.
- Reality-check: You are not only expected on the other side - you are *needed* there! And will be welcomed with huge angel-wing-hugs, overflowing baskets of chocolate-covered macadamia nuts, endless yards of plumeria leis and gallons of mai tais.
- A word to all passengers from your Captain: Please relax and enjoy the scenery from up here. This is a beautiful, blessed reprieve and one of the best parts of the trip. Everything is on track. Everything is moving along. Everything is being perfectly orchestrated.
At this point, there's no turning back and emergency landings are in no way desirable. So much has changed for many of us in a short period of time, and this process can feel disorienting.
Enjoy this part of the journey. The arrival destination will be viewable soon! And fluffy, full clouds really are quite lovely from up here.
Onwards we roam,

With over 30,000 copies of The Art of Trapeze downloaded, I have a few things to share with you about writing a memoir.
Top 10 Thoughts On Writing A Memoir, Putting It Out Into The World, and Realizing People Read It
1. You'll only feel good about what you write if it comes from your heart, which feels like a big-fat-giant risk at first. However, there are enough ego-based books out there, full of platitudes and typical outcomes and mainstream advice so trust that what you authentically share is relatable to YOUR peeps (not everyone, just YOUR peeps who are on the same wave length).
2. You'll hate the book a million times before you hit publish on Amazon. It will be in the trash, the gutter, and heavily edited many times as you wrestle with what to say. The creative process is never dull.
3. Private messages from readers will touch you. Discussing depression, success, love, adventure, emotional vulnerabilities, and fears on paper will push you deeper into yourself. It will all sound crazy and lonely at times, until you receive unexpected feedback, such as:
"Molly, This book is going to stay with me for a while. Thank you for its gifts."
"I have experienced many of the things you shared in your memoir, but as a male, it isn't socially acceptable for me to put it out there."
"Your words inspired me to heal something I've been avoiding. I also shared this book with my best friend, I hope you don't mind."
4. An author never minds if you share their book with your best friends.
5. It will be the worst book in the world to some reviewers. Bad reviews are part of being a public artist; it comes with the territory. (Personal attacks, unfortunately, are standard these days for authors. I have seen a lot of slander and mean things written for numerous memoirs. Readers are smart; they see through this when they are your peeps.)
6. It will be the best book in the world to other reviewers. Just do not tell these people about Hemingway, Angelou, Thoreau, Joyce, Theroux, Whitman, Kingsolver, Harper Lee, Dr. Seuss, etc.
7. Neither being the best nor the worst will be true. You'll just be the best writer you could have been at that time.
8. With a memoir, your children will see the truth of who you were back when you were young, adventurous, foolish, unrestrained, and open to the world. Perhaps you will have forgotten this version of yourself, too, until you catch a brief glimpse of the book cover somewhere out in the world.
9. At the end of your life, you'll be proud that you took a shot and contributed a small fraction of a small life story to the larger whole of storytelling.
10. Take the risk to go deeper. Memoirs have the power to intimately connect with a reader. Honor this opportunity in the best way you can. Life is a grand adventure, so why not put yourself out there just a bit more, trusting we have more in common than we realize.

As you ascend to higher energies, you begin to open up to more soul gifts to work with for the collective. But we don’t know that at first. We “think” we are sliding back into 3D energies, or going backwards, or feeling depressed, or that a higher part of ourselves is not real.
If any of this resonates with you, you may be a Global Pain Processor – a soul who is helping to clear lower energies for many. This could be people in your soul group or local community; or it could be people anywhere in the world that need energetic support and healing.
Being a Global Pain Processor is a soul gift, no doubt, but it can also be confusing at first because you may identify with the painful energy and think it’s “yours” – yet it doesn’t make sense that it would be yours.
As an example, I felt a lot of sadness and frustration last week that seemed to come out of the blue. It sucked. I couldn’t identify it or match it up with my own experiences, nor connect it to my life in any particulate way, yet the feelings were very real. I just felt a cloud of sadness, vulnerability, and wounds coming up that could very well be mine, yet I also felt confused about it.
I now believe it was related to a global frustration around war, bombings, aggression, and hopelessness. There is a sense that people feel powerless about what to do next in the world, or in their lives, and the fears are present – but the energy is stuck.
This may sound similar to being an Empath, but it is slightly different because it ebbs and flows with the collective energies more. You are tuned in to something on a higher level that is not yours, but is meant to be transmuted to a higher expression of energy. We take the fear and we intentionally blast it with love, light, and peace so it can be moved forward into something else.
So how to work with it?
There is a very simple meditation or visualization you can use that begins by noticing the feelings and what they are, then seeing them surrounded by love, light, and peace – whatever that means to you. Give yourself time to detach from the feelings. Understand it is not personal; it is not you. And yet you can make a difference in the world by visualizing more streams of pure white light coming out of you and circling the globe.
