How To Create A Sacred Winter Retreat

Ive always loved this holiday quote from the late Wayne Dyer…  

Tis the season when we really need a moment of silence. Its also the season when we really have to work to make sure we get one. At a time we traditionally devote to loving, giving, and gratitude, the quiet and peace we need to appreciate our gifts seems all too elusive. 

Everything thats created comes out of silence. Your thoughts emerge from the nothingness of silence. Your words come out of this void. Your very essence emerged from emptiness. All creativity requires some stillness. Your sense of inner peace depends on spending some of your life energy in silence to recharge your battery, remove tension and anxiety, reacquaint you with the joy of knowing God, and feel closer to all of humanity.   

– Wayne Dyer  

On Thursday we observed the Winter Solstice, marking the longest night of the year and the return of the light in the Northern Hemisphere.  

Our friends down under are celebrating the Summer Solstice instead.  

This is a potent time to release what no longer serves. A time to plant the seeds of what we Desire to create in the next cycle. 

And yet— in the hustling of the holidays… how often do we actually create the time and space for ourselves, despite our best intentions? 

As Wayne so eloquently reminds us, quiet time and reflection are not luxuries.  For the Feminine Magician especially, they’re requirements.  

It’s imperative that we periodically break from our individual and collective routines and turn inward, because… 

Its in the silence and stillness that we are able to hear the true voice of our Desire.  

Its in the silence that we receive the guidance that we need to enter our next phase of creation.  

It is out of silence that ALL that we create emerges. 

One of my favorite ways to enjoy a sacred pause during the holidays is to create a mini-retreat. 

So in honor of the sacred energy of the solstice and our next phase of collective creation, here’s my simple guide to create a winter retreat that recharges your body, mind and soul.

This structure can be used for a number of things… reflection, planning, rejuvenation or all of the above. 

1. Decide upon the time.

Carve out a couple of hours, or a day, or even a long weekend if that serves you. And most importantly, let people know that you will be unavailable and don’t want to be disturbed.  (This is a great opportunity to practice asking for what you want if you’re not used to doing that. 😉

2. Prepare for your retreat.

Gather the supplies that you need and prepare your space. A few of my favorite retreat supplies include:

  • A journal or notebook 
  • A calendar or planner if you will be planning  
  • Candles  
  • Fresh flowers 
  • Nourishing foods & snacks 
  • Your favorite beverages, especially water if you plan to include movement 
  • Any ritual supplies you like such as crystals or things to raise your vibration – essential oils are great for this 

3. Purify and cleanse.

The simplest way to do this it to take a luxurious shower or bath, and visualize the water washing away all that no longer serves you. Or you may prefer to smudge yourself and your space with incense or sage.   

It’s also important to empty and cleanse your mind at this point.  Use your favorite sacred practice to release stray thoughts, nigglies, worries, to-do lists, or concerns.   

My favorite way to empty is to close my eyes, breathe deeply and imagine all of those things simply draining away, safely knowing that I can pick up anything I release for the time being, when I so choose.  And don’t forget to turn off your cell phone! 

4. Formally open your retreat.

Once in your retreat space, allow yourself to fully arrive.  Call back any parts of yourself that might still be hanging out elsewhere.  Continue your emptying practice so you begin with an empty cup. 

When you are ready to begin,  light a candle as you make a simple statement of your intention for this sacred retreat time.   

My intention always includes making contact and connection with my Essence and being open to receiving the guidance that it has for me.  Or it might simply be a sense of rest and rejuvenation.  Just be sure to be clear and specific as you make this powerful claim. 

5. Engage in the activities that nourish you.

Perhaps you’ve decided to do some planning, or journaling reflection on the prior year.  Or perhaps your retreat time includes movement or time in nature. A long, reflective walk can be extremely replenishing. I get some of my best insights and guidance in nature!  Be sure to include nurturing, healing foods if you’ll be in retreat for longer than a few hours.  

6. Formally close your retreat.

Once you’re complete, you’ll again want to delineate the transition.  Express gratitude to yourself for the gift of this sacred time, and gratitude for the guidance and wisdom you’ve gleaned.  

7. Allow some integration time.

This is a super-important step!  Your being needs time to fully download your retreat experience, and rushing right back into the hustle and bustle and navigating everybody else’s priorities interferes with this process.   

I recommend staying off the technology or simply keeping your schedule clear for another 24 hours or so. Whatever you do, just be sure to put some attention on honoring the integration process and allowing yourself to return to the present with grace.  

So there’s a simple structure for your winter (or anytime) retreat. I hope you’ll carve out some time in the coming week to honor yourself and nurture the powerful Creatrix you are.  

I’ll be doing it right alongside you and I’d love to know in the comments, how your retreat went… or better yet, post a photo over here in the Feminine Magic® Community on Facebook so we can celebrate along with you.  

Wishing you love, magic & many blessings through the holiday season and beyond! 

 

How To Banish “Busywork” So You Can Connect To Your Next Aligned Action

It took me a long time to admit something about myself…  

I’m kinda a high achiever. 

So not surprisingly, we’ve got a LOT of high achievers in the Feminine Magic® community.  

You get SHIZZ done!  

You DO a lot.  

And sometimes you get caught in the “Do-Do-Do, Hustle-Hustle-Hustle, Get ‘Er Done” paradigm.  

Now, there’s nothing inherently wrong with busting your bum-bum to reach your goals.  (After all, it’s what we’ve been conditioned to do.) 

Except that’s not the way we’re truly designed to manifest what we want.  

In The Feminine Magic® School of Manifesting, I teach the secret framework of manifesting. The hidden framework of how we actually create using spiritual law on the physical plane.  

It’s this beautiful mix of attraction… and aligned action… without the shadow masculine hustling you might be used to…  

But, if you don’t know the difference between aligned action and busywork— Guess where you end up?  

Right back in the Do-Do-Do!!  Stuck in the expending a ton of energy.   

SO how cool would it be to know the difference? To know, right away, whether you’re going for “busy” instead of allowing in what you want? 

Discernment is key.  And I broke it all down on a recent Facebook Live… 

How To Banish “Busywork” So You Can Connect With Your Next Aligned Action 

 

Watch the replay here, or keep reading for the 411.  

Secret #1: There is always aligned action to take.  ALWAYS! 

To really get this, there are 2 things you need to understand. 

The first is that receiving actually requires action.   

It’s a myth that things “just drop into your lap” whole-cloth.   

If you consciously set out to manifest something, there will be SOME physical action required on your part.   Even if it’s just to deposit the check that came out of nowhere in response to your latest manifesting practice. 

The second thing to understand is that there’s a HUGE distinction between aligned and busywork, aka “all the doing.” 

  • “DOING” is running around trying to meet all the conditions you think have to be true in order to have what you want.  
  • Aligned action is the movement, the locomotion that actually brings you what you want.  

Take, for example, a thriving coaching business. 

People think they need website, branding, a FB page… and they look  around see all these peeps with their lifestyle brands, fancy logos and photoshoots and it becomes pretty easy to think you have to have all that too before you can start making money.   

However, none of that is what actually calls in the money.  

Are these things important?  Well, that’s open to debate, actually.  😉  

What brings money into your business isn’t the branding or social media.  

What brings money into your business is… a conversation with a potential client where you ask for the business! 

If you think about it, this just makes sense, right?  

All those other things are, leading up to the conversation.  Yet it’s the (successful sales) conversation that directly results in money in the bank. 

It’s pretty to see this when we break it down but what tends to happen… especially for us high-functioning, super-generative women who have been conditioned to DO it all… our mind takes us on a little ride. 

Your brain actually has a vested interest in having you stay right where you are.  So it would make sense that it would send you off on the doing and the busywork. 

However, there is nothing to DO but take the aligned action that brings you what you want. 

This distinction between busywork and aligned action— that’s your first clue in being able to tell the difference. 

Think about something you want right now.  Maybe it’s a thriving coaching business. 

The aligned action in that case is… Making sales!  

Attracting potential clients, having them raise their hands, inviting them into conversation and inviting them to work with you if it’s a match. 

If you want more money, this is the aligned action to take.  It always comes back to having conversations in SOME form.  

For everything we wish to manifest, there is always some point where we transition from not having the thing, to having the thing.   

If you want a house, your aligned actions would be connecting with sources of houses, choosing the one you want, and making an offer.  

If it’s a relationship…the aligned action is going on dates. 

Now there are nuances with all of this, but what you really need to explore when it comes to discerning aligned action is this: 

What is that point of transition from NOT having the thing, to having the thing? 

That’s aligned action.   

If you’re dancing around that, rather than diving right INTO it… you’re likely engaging in busywork.  Which brings me to point number 2.   

Secret #2: The WAY to manifest what you Desire will come in the form of an opportunity; specifically the opportunity to BE, DO or HAVE something.  

If you’re manifesting new clients you may get 3 referrals— 3 referrals for 3 ideal clients… And now you have to call them.

If it’s more money you’re calling in you might get an opportunity to create a brand new residual income stream…. And now you have to say yes to that opportunity along with any investment of time and money that’s required upfront to get started.   

If you’re struggling to grow or change in some way you may get the opportunity to work with a mentor or a coach…  And now you have to say yes to stepping into the container presented.  

Maybe you hear that a particular organization is looking for exactly what you offer, or they offer exactly what you are looking for… And you have reach out.  

Perhaps there is a seminar on the exact topic or area of transformation you want to work on next – relationships, health, money…. And now you have to get on a plane. 

Often, the way to manifest what you want is an opportunity that is self-generated and is already in front of you.  

Shocker! 🙂 

That’s why one of the fastest ways to manifest something, especially in your business, is to really look at what’s in front of you with new eyes. 

Now here’s the cosmic ha-ha with this… 

This opportunity will very likely be something you have some resistance to.   

It very likely will be something that you do NOT want, or do NOT want to do!!  

Napoleon Hill calls this this “the sly disguises of opportunity” in his classic manifesting manual, Think And Grow Rich… 

“When opportunity came it appeared in a different form and from a different direction than he expected.  That is one of the tricks of opportunity.  It has the sly habit of slipping by the back door and often comes disguised in the form of misfortune or temporary defeat.  Perhaps this is why so many people fail to recognize opportunity.”  

– Napoleon Hill 

Yes, things can appear to manifest as if out of thin air.  And that usually happens after we’ve taken action on the opportunity that we had resistance to! 

For example– you don’t want to have sales conversations; maybe you’re afraid of selling, whatever.  But finally, you pull on your big girl undies, and you do it.   

And you do it from a place of truly DOING it— not going-through-the-motions and then being all “why is it not happening?” 

You have the sales conversation and your miracle shows up.   

That’s exactly how it happens.  This is how miracles show up.  

And this is when things get really fun. 

Because… to call in what you want you’re going to have to move through resistance. The opportunity will be something that you do NOT want to do!!   

The cool thing is, the resistance is one of the things that lets us know that we are on the right track!! 

(That is, until it isn’t.  The more you practice this, the less resistance you will feel.  But look to the resistance first, with an open mind.) 

Secret #3 The way to manifest what you Desire always exists.  ALWAYS.  

Everything you Desire is already here! 

Everything that you Desire to create has already been created, either HERE on the physical plane or on another level of consciousness.  

You can count on that, as the sun rises.  

We do not manifest gold out of thin air.  Instead we become aware of the gold that already exists and the action required to bring it to us.  

The way already exists. There is an aligned action, already in your field, to call in what you want.  

Secret #4  When it comes to aligned action you always know the way  

This is one of those rock solid rules that I live by. 

If you’re here it’s likely that you have some intuitive abilities.  You get those inner nudges / promptings / knowings. 

And you know when you get those inner nudges / promptings / knowings… What happens? 

You get the nudge and it’s very clear, even if it’s just for split second. 

THEN your mind rushes in to clobber the shit out of it. 

Your mind comes up with a quick counter YEAH-BUT. 

There’s actually a reason why this happens.  Our brain creates this response, predictably.  

When you know that something is a yes, the very next thing that comes up is resistance.  The “YEAH BUT!” 

And YET when we honor that initial yes what happens?  

It freaking works out every time!  

I have countless examples of this.  

One of them is my husband… 

I was actually engaged married— practically engaged to be married to someone else when I met Leland.  

My ex-boyfriend was, and is, quite well-known in his industry, and a really amazing human being who I truly loved on many levels, so the decision to break it off was a really big deal. 

It’s a long story. I share a bit more in the Facebook Live 

But the upshot is I was faced with a decision.  Probably the most important decision of my life.  

I said yes to the knowing practically sight unseen.   Because my Essence knew.  I knew.  

I could’ve spent another year wasting time with the amazing fiancé who wasn’t meant to be and chasing my tail.  #beentheredonethat 

So when taking aligned action you really need listen to those knowings and take action – even if it might appear totally irrational. 

Sometimes the next move won’t seem logical on the surface. 

This gets back to Napoleon Hill again… 

“It will look like temporary defeat or setback.” 

But it’s not.  It’s the next right move.  You just have to have FAITH to take it.

Where We’re Headed: The Feminine Magic® State of the Union

You may have noticed that we’ve been undergoing quite the transition this year, here at Feminine Magic® HQ… a.k.a Goddess Central. 

Here on the blog, in emails and on social media, we’ve been shifting the conversation all year.   

We’ve also shifted what we’ve been offering to support you on your path of massive success. 

I rarely talk business-y stuff these days (you know, except for when I do) and instead, I’ve been teaching magic, manifesting and money, with a dash of essential oils thrown in. 

Shifting gears this year has been a REALLY interesting experience for us to navigate.  True transformation is never smooth sailing. 

The great news is, the road ahead is coming into clear view.  And there is sooooo much that I can’t wait to share with you! 

So I hopped on Facebook Live on Friday to give you the full scoop on where we’re going, what’s coming next and what it means for you! 

Go here to watch the Feminine Magic® State of the Union

 Here are some of the high points: 

  • I’m not the only one “in transition” – we all are!!  And I’m not the only one who is blowing up parts of my business.  In times like these, instead of “why is this happening?” be in the inquiry of “What is being ASKED of me at this time?” 
  • What’s being asked of the ambitious, creative, generative women in our circle is… a deep understanding of exactly how you create, and a deep understanding of your true nature and power. 
  • At Feminine Magic®, we teach the art of magic for your personal and financial empowerment.  We focus on magic and manifesting for massive success and real-world results, using your spiritual powers and gifts. 
  • Here are the 4 different areas you can expect us to focus on in the coming year, and beyond: 
    •  Manifesting.  We’ve cracked the code on what soooo many spiritual teachers miss – that is, the secret structure BEHIND manifesting.  The Core Manifesting Process is a predictable, repeatable manifesting formula that you can use to manifest at will, like our clients have. 
    • The Art of Magic.  The traditional definition of magic is to create change in alignment with Will (your Essence or Higher Self).  The tools and rituals of magic become so much more effective once you understand HOW you create reality here on the physical plane.  Expect more rituals, magical tools and teachings in the new year. 
    • Money.  Everyone’s favorite manifesting playground!  Magic and manifesting MUST create real results on the physical plane.  We will continue to explore and deepen into how to use these tools to create real dollars in your bank account – sometimes double and even triple what you’re used to. 
    • Essential Oils.  I share doTERRA oils because they are among the top tools I use to amplify my energy.  Essential oils are a powerful tool for vibrational wellness, and they’re the perfect manifesting tool because for EVERY challenge you can think of, in and out of the realm of health… there’s an oil for that.  🙂   Find out more about the oils here.
  • You already love our articles; we’ve got more Facebook Lives in the new year.  Woo! 
  • We’re re-invigorating our FREE Facebook Groups so you can better connect with us where most of you already are – Facebook.  Join us on Facebook here.
  • I’m hella freakin’ TIRED of the “just one program” model that is heavily promoted by the coaching industry.  Like you, I’m highly creative and generative, and I’m tired of that creativity behind hamstrung by “how it’s SUPPOSED to be done.”  My vision has always been to turn Feminine Magic® into a trusted resource of metaphysical education.   
  • Soooo… expect MORE opportunities to work with us next year, at different price points. 
  • I’ll continue to offer private, 1-on-1 work with VIP clients to create massive money breakthroughs.  You can also expect me to start to deliver some deeper transformational and healing work via two different modalities I’ve been studying for years: The Akashic Records and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. 

While we were Live I also shared that we’ve decided to do something awesome to support and honor the entrepreneurial peeps in our world. 

Despite NOT opening the doors to Goddess Business School® for more than a year, we still get requests every week about enrolling. 

It’s not a surprise.  Goddess Business School® was our most comprehensive business training ever.   

To my mind, it’s STILL the best step-by-step training for building a coaching, healing or transformation business, online and off. 

So next week, for one week only, we’ll be offering an opportunity to get your hands on our most-loved, truly game-changing Goddess Business School® curriculum… at a fraction of the original investment. 

We’ll share all the deets on the other side of the weekend so if this sparks curiosity, be on the look out.  

NOTE: This will be a true “sale”. Amazing price, limited time offer. Only a few reminders. Then… *poof*… it’s gone.   

So if this is speaking to you… pay attention.

With Deep Gratitude (special money manifesting gift)

On this day of generosity, abundance and gratitude here stateside, I want to take a minute to thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for being here in the Feminine Magic® community.   

Making the leap to teach full on manifesting and magic this year has been a long time coming.  Truthfully, it’s been a big stretch for me too. 

Rising to your purpose isn’t always an easy thing to do 😉  

What makes this journey non-negotiable and so worthwhile is holding space for you— nurturing your Desires, and your Creative Power to BE, do or have anything you wish.  

As a token of appreciation today, I want to share a special gift  with you… 

Right about now… many of the women in our community are gearing up to double down on their bold money goals before the New Year comes.  

Ask me how I know 😉  

One of my favorite money manifesting exercises is to connect with Essence (your Divine or Higher Self) and ask for some help to channel a list of 50 – 100 ways to call it in. 

The money is always in that list.  

With this in mind, I want to share a special money manifesting guide featuring 47+ Ways To Manifest Money that you can use to ideas flowing. 

This includes ideas that work even if you don’t have a business so be sure to scoop up a copy and enjoy.

From my heart to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!  

 

An Easy Way To Derail Your Manifesting… And How To Get Back On Track

 

If you’re playing the manifesting game, chances are you’re looking for it to be easy. 

No judgment here – “easy” can be a great thing!  And it can, indeed, be easy.   

Manifesting was designed to be easy. 

However, our brains are not always on board to make things easy.  Indeed, sometimes it can seem as if our brain is doing everything it can to make things as difficult as possible. 

For example… 

Let’s say you feel that gentle nudge on the inside, pointing you in a given direction.   

You decide you want “the thing.”  You decide you’re going to GO for it. 

The first question your mind asks is… “HOW?”

So you look around, notice all the reasons why you CAN’T have it (no time, the money isn’t in your bank account, etc)… and your energy tanks.   

You can’t SEE how it’s possible… so you decide that you don’t really want it anyway.  

Or consider THIS…  

Society teaches us that we have to “make things happen” (a.k.a. manifest)  by pushing, striving, DO-ing.  We easily fall into what I call the go-go-go, do-do-do paradigm.   

There you are.  You’re hustling.  You’re giving it all you’ve got.  You’re DO-ing until you can’t DO any more.  And you only end up exhausted. 

So what’s REALLY going on in both of these cases?  A sneaky belief about who we THINK we really are. 

We think we are the SOURCE of our money, our time, our results, our success.  So when those resources run out… where does that leave us? 

In a state of lack. 

When you believe you are the Source (of your money, opportunities, healing…) you’ve gotta do everything in your power or it won’t flow to you. If you run out— of time, energy and resources—  So does your ability to manifest what you want.  

Thankfully, we are NOT the Source.  Source is Source.  And only Source is the Source of our good. 

In that scenario, what does that make YOU? 

The Catalyst.  The Conduit.  The Contribution.   

As these things, your supply is unlimited.  And if you know that you are the Contribution… 

You take action as a true co-creative partner with Divine or Creative Life Force.  There is no limit to what you can create or how it can flow in. And you don’t have to do anything except take simple, aligned action to magnetize it to you.  

So what’s your belief, Goddess?   

Do you believe you’ve got to do more to manifest what you want most?  

Have you been getting caught up in how it has to come to you? 

What if you really didn’t have to know the “how,” and instead just had to be willing to BE the channel that the Divine works through? 

What if all you have to “do” to BE that is… receive the guidance, trust it, and follow it? 

Calling in what you choose – and creating your life as you choose – is easy when you allow it. 

But it will never, ever be easy when you’re in slavegirl mode, or lack mode, staring into the tunnel that is your current experience, and thinking that that’s all there is. 

YOU are not all there is.    

Instead, you’re 10,000 times better: a conduit, catalyst and channel for all that is, where “all there is” is unlimited. 

So the next time you find yourself in tunnel vision, about to despair because the solution you seek doesn’t appear to be in front of you, try this… 

Close your eyes.  Make sure you’re fully in your body.  And then with the absolute certainty of a Creatrix who never fails, say… 

“By the Goddess Within, and the Divine Above, Below, Left, Right, Before Me, Behind Me… I call forward the endless possibilities that exist NOW to manifest this Desire NOW.  Specifically, I now allow the awareness of at least three highly aligned ways to call in this or something better, effective immediately, in a way that is even better than I could have hoped for or imagined.  It is done, it is done, it is done.”   

Expect those ways to appear.  Know it will be done. 

Then watch. 

Watch what appears, watch your mind. 

And when they appear, say YES. 

I can’t wait to hear what happens for you when you give this a go.  Let me know how this lands for you in the comments! 

Love & magic, 

Elizabeth

 

PS: Manifesting gets a LOT easier when you truly understand exactly HOW you’re creating your reality, and therefore your results. 

Over the past year, I’ve been teaching a lot about the 4 manifesting tools you already have to create everything you’ll ever want. 

 These are tools that are in you already, and that you are using already – whether you’re aware of it or not.  (Most people aren’t.)  Learn to use them consciously, and you can manifest just about anything with lightning speed.   

I believe that these 4 tools are truly the keys to the kingdom, so to speak.  I created a cheat sheet that explains it all – you can download it here.
