finding your tribe + soul-full sunday feature

Body: 

It’s not too often that you meet people you immediately connect with. Recently, I was fortunate to be introduced to a group of talented female entrepreneur’s. Once a week we’d participate on a call focused on offering support and sharing ideas both personally and professionally.  Our time together proved to be both productive and inspiring.

From that group I happened to hit it off with a sweetheart of a woman named Carrie Hensley - a yoga instructor, speaker and transformative workshop facilitator from Arizona. 

Carrie is a person that moves through life with a zest and passion for helping others move forward. We’ve had many spirited conversations and tend to see the world through a similar lens. I guess you can call her my “soul sister on the planet”!

Recently, Carrie was generous enough to feature me on her Soul-Full Sunday blog!  You can read that article here.

I encourage you, both men and women alike, to take stock of those around you.  Consider someone who may be a great soul partner and beneficiary for the revolving door of support and inspiration that come from finding your tribe. 

For those of us who are entrepreneurs, artists, writers, visionaries, healers + social lightworkers, it can make all the difference in our quest to boldly finesse our collective ideas into fruition.

Female Voice :: A Hallmark of a Remarkable Woman

Body: 

Do you know a remarkable woman?

She embodies and exemplifies idealism, courage and valor; demands what’s intended for the highest purpose - the greater good.

They rally us to gather and work in communion – they give us hope, unite us and shore us up.

Much more than self-righteous or self- sacrificial, they are Souls that are driven by concepts of fairness and justice; understanding the world may be unjust, but willing to do the work to create the inverse by any means necessary.

Warrior like Spirits: willing to show up and respond to their calling. They shoulder us, they soldier on.

These heroines are writers, activists and change makers.                 

Women who give voice to and stand for the un-just, oppressed and marginalized.

This is a short list of a large collective, who have inspired me. {In no particular order}

Anita Hill

Billy Jean King - loved spending the day with her. 

Crystal Lee Sutton - “aka” Norma Rae

Aung San Suu Kyi 

Veronica Guerin

The Mirabal Sisters

Oprah Winfrey

Gloria Steinem

+ Something extra http://www.makers.com/documentary/ from PBS.

The mark of a Phoenix serves as reminder that in our own unique way we are “the parts in the sum of the whole” with no voice too small.

While you or I may not possess a fraction of their courage, I know like many others I’ll continue to do my part. 

Visit Tara Noelani Correll + See No Color and share your stories about the remarkable woman you know.

For all my sisters that have done the heavy lifting: Thank you for your courage + encouragement.        

 ~ Namaste.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

peace.

Body: 

“Let it rain peace, may your dreams reveal themselves”.

Can peace come through chaos? With the recent asteroids striking earth there is a coming shift beckoning us to restructure life in its truest form – a way of approaching it in a manner that will invite openness and clarity. It’s not always about what we need to let go of, it’s about simply letting go.

Trust.

What do you yearn for? 

What do you need to get clear about?

What can you release that is not serving you?

No worry required.

These answers will reveal themselves… and more.

Invite a state of peace and trust that life is about to shift… for the better.

Think non-linear.

View life from a different vantage point.

Approach situations with fresh eyes.   

Simply Let Go.

Get clear about your perceptions vs. your realities, allow life to manage itself.

Be Still. Peace = Presence.

Creating Sacred Space :: Clearing Channels To Success with Karin Saldaña.

Body: 

A couple years back, when I was on a slow-but-steady transition from commercial hair + make-up to my passionate pursuit as an emerging life and business coach, I experienced a bout of mental fog.  My studio/office was in upheaval; too much home-life-business “stuff” overlapping.  It was breaking my creative mojo; the studio space I once loved felt chaotic and claustrophobic.

I’m blessed to have a multitude of über talented rock-solid friends who’ve graced my life. One of them: my dear friend Karin Saldaña. Karin happens to be a kick-ass intuitive space clearer; a seer of epic possibilities pertaining to organizing, repurposing and clearing space.  

As a professional “personal organizer”, Karin has worked with exclusive “A list” clients, entrepreneurs, artists and retirees who are in need of creating usable space and have the desire to shed the excess that’s holding them back. Karin will capably create an environment that is reflective of your soul and devise integrated systems that will allow you to keep it all intact. In certain cases, she can work via Skype.

I sent her a plane ticket and she worked for two days. I’ll tell you, it was worth it.

Clearing space is a sacred act.  It’s about honoring, anchoring and creating space for you; an offering that allows for the sustainable emotional and creative clarity you desire to come to fruition. The power to move mountains…..        

The following is a message and offering from Karin -                                

 “I am not going to tell you it is going to be easy, I’m telling you it is going to be worth it” -Unknown

As we enter into 2013, many of us have set new goals for the year, perhaps to improve our diets, eat clean and healthy, challenge ourselves to train harder or lose weight, the list can go on. I would like to challenge you to take a look around your home.

          *Are you living in a clutter-free space?

          *Do all your personal belongings have a place?

          *Are you able to find items with ease?

          *Do you feel overwhelmed, too tired to prepare your meals and eat better, no desire or              motivation for your workouts?

          *Do you have time to enjoy the things in life that are most important to you?

          *Are you living in your ideal space and happy with how your home feels?

Your home is a reflection of your state of mind, as is your body. One of the biggest challenges with clutter in your home is it blocks growth in your life.  It can also affect your health, career, relationships and your wealth. When we are overwhelmed with “stuff”, our lifestyle starts to suffer. We lose desire and time passes on the things we intended for ourselves. Working as a professional organizer for over 20 plus years, I have experienced with client after client that once the de-clutter begins, their lives shift. The clarity and cleansing they feel in their home begins to shift their personal lives.  Some may make career changes, some may lose weight or some may find love.  Whatever was out of alignment before will begin to attract new beginnings when in alignment.  I believe in starting small, but to START.

An example may be to start in your kitchen, if your goal is to improve your diet and eat cleaner.

          *Take all items out of your cupboards, pantry and shelves, sections at a time.

          *Throw out all expired foods.  More often than not, a client will have three or more of                the same spices. This happens when we are not organized.

          *Toss out old pots and pans that have lost their coatings, replace with new ones that                will make you feel better when you are preparing your healthy meals.

I would like to offer a complimentary consultation by STAGE Personalized Lifestyle Services.

Finding Your North Star :: The Courage To Be Exactly Who You Are

Body: 

The time for ascension is now. 

Courage: "That quality of mind which shows itself in facing danger without fear or shrinking". ~ Unknown.

What would it take: To step up and out of bounds, outside the realm of personal limitation?

More importantly, how would it feel?

If personal boundaries are a reflection of our inward limitations, what does it say in relation to how we measure our self-worth? The concept that we shrink our dreams proportionately to the size of what we think we deserve or know to be unattainable is us partnering with obscurity… that’s downright asinine.

Biting off on that antiquated system of belief is monumentally disproportionate - your eminence is so much more. 

Sanctity is the ultimate expression of being; that inherent architecture is already in place. Find the spiritual space; allow nature to work its magic. 

We are taught from a young age that we’ll have our “fifteen minutes” - toss that idea, exchange it for a lifetime of grandeur. Your trajectory is on track and in line if you have faith, belief in possibility and are willing to go the extra mile. 

Be the vessel, a perfect work in progressKnow exactly what you’re capable of. It takes nothing short of courage and a warrior like spirit to live this life.

Begin where you are….. find your flow.

Nourishing yourself: What makes you feel Beautiful, Loved + Strong.

Body: 

“Beauty is life when life unveils her holy face. But you are life and you are the veil.  Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror. But you are eternity and you are the mirror.” ~ Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

Do you know how beautiful you are?

Unwavering self worth is your cornerstone in life. Self-worth creates grounding and allows love to emanate through and around you.  It offers the experience of beauty through wholeness. An abundance of beauty provides a vantage point that enhances fluidity in your present and your future. Living in alignment creates harmonious aspects that allow you to individuate, connect with spirit and be in union with your core essence. 

Actions that can change the way we see ourselves:

* Adopt daily, positive affirmations that nourish your heart, mind and soul. 

* Design a concise mission/vision statement that encourages nurturing belief through visualization and self-actualization.

* Draw beauty through loving action: Infuse it in all you think, say and do.

* Self-valuation exponentially changes how the outside world responds to you, creating favorable opportunities.

* Reject chaos: Release what’s beyond your control. Recognize that discord not assigned to you undermines your spiritual progress and mightiness. 

* Create a healthy spiritual environment: Cocoon and shelter yourself in moments of uncertainty. Surround yourself with people that genuinely love and care for you.

* Be the gatekeeper of your conscious and subconscious mind: Perpetuate naturally occurring positive states of mind by “hanging out” between silence and thought; that’s where your beauty and strength lie.

To beauty, love + strength,

 

When you bring “It” to life, bring nothing short of your best.

Body: 

“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
– attributed to an unnamed Hopi elder
Hopi Nation

What qualities do you possess that allow you to shine?

Your being is your birthright; you have a backstage pass to excellence and self expression.

The time is now to define “the why” relative to your time here. No time for short cuts… it’s about showing up and bringing your best, it’s about finding flow and kicking ass. This is not my friend, a life to squander.

The promise in stepping out of the confines of “normalcy” and stepping into personal greatness is that life as you know it will never be the same. It’s your moral imperative to fulfill life to its deepest depth and learn self expression in a way that’s most reflective of your soul.  

Exploring the “Best” of Soul-Full living:

* What creates expansion and what causes you to shrink? Meditate on that. It’s all about ditching the shrinkage.

* Get your hustle on, make haste: access excellence through self-healing, self-love and envisioning a soulful existence.

* A call for greatness is a “calling” to define your life’s “anthem”. Create a personal vision/mission statement. Bring it to fruition in all its glory, say it loud and proud!

* Eliminate obligation that lacks clarity, soul + substance. If it doesn’t resonate, it will not marinate. Scrap outdated contracts with yourself that block your success.

* Resolve to solve – Find the answer: Dig, Delve, then Dip - “aka”, leave it + move on.

* We are a continuum of one another. The choices you make impact those around you; so choose your thoughts and goals with great care. 

* What we fail to complete short changes the larger scope of our essence and potentiality. Do what you say you’re going to do, fulfill your commitments - there is a lesson after each and every one of them.

The end result: You’ll bear witness to inherent magnificence in full bloom.

Setting intention through introspection, reflection and clarity.

Body: 

Now more than ever, it’s the time to mindfully shift into more of who we are; a core consciousness made and created through clear intention. In this immense era of the feminine, it's a time to be attuned and "show up" in this lifetime.  

Taking first steps toward the redefining of the “you” and the “I” at a Soul level is required for actionable evolution. Only through believing in and accepting of who we are first and foremost, will allow for the universal change that’s sorely needed at this moment.

It begins by living a sentient, less insular life that is reflective of our hearts. This will incrementally not only mend, but restore our faith in ourselves and in humanity.

Every so often we get a glimpse at impermanence, a snapshot of what was or will never be. That’s the incomprehensible paradox of life; the breaking down of the old and antiquated, making way for birthing the new. It’s how we become more of ourselves- that profound catalyst, the glue that binds us.

Wishing You Blessings and Love Always. ~ Tara

Chasing The Dreamcatcher :: 2013 + Beyond - Navigating Your Course.

Body: 

: Harnessing the power of dreams.

In native culture, the web of a dreamcatcher is believed to harness and allow good dreams to filter through to the individual.

Sleep is a portal to our dreams, a departure from existential life. Prophetic dreams are considered to be the unconscious mind piecing together information that is overlooked throughout consciousness. For those who utilize dreams, this can be a prolific gateway to delve into our future selves.

Where the conscious mind is occupied with mindless chatter and at times doubt, the unequivocal knowing mind is palpably intuitive in a dream state. Accessing the higher mind through our dreams takes repetition and memory, much like building muscle. Learning to transmute their messages in a profoundly meaningful way can reveal our ultimate purpose - lending a sense of peace and direction in career, relationships, your calling.

Symbolic dreams are a potent reflection and release of our inner most world; a synergist to living a balanced four dimensional life of the spiritual, mental, physical and social/emotional; an exaltation of hopes, desires and a soulful existence is a direct reflection of what lies within us and for what is entirely possible.

A great book :: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

* Keep a notepad and pen next to your bed. Write down what you can remember as dreams arise or as thoughts come throughout the day. Remember, they are not necessarily literal.  Reflect upon what they mean to you.

This holiday forward I wish you peace, joy and abundance. I am eternally grateful for your support!
