RBBiz Day 2: Amethyst Wyldfyre

Creative Business

If the speaker’s name didn’t give you a clue, Tuesday’s session by this Empowered Messenger veered off into woo-woo territory, specifically urging those who needed to to come out of the spiritual closet; to stop hiding our true selves and, in the process, hindering our full potential. As she, herself, did when she made the move from real estate developer to crystal healer.

Best to learn from those who’ve gone through it, right?

I have a whole page of notes from this interview and look forward to replaying it several times: there’s a lot of great info even if you’re not into the woo-woo, non-mainstream spirituality of it all. Some tidbits worth sharing:

  • Trust in the Random
    I lean towards the concept that nothing is truly random, but substitute unexpected and I think that’s certainly worth thinking about. We might plan, but if we maintain that plan in the face of unexpected opportunities, we run the risk of missing out on some very cool experiences.
  • Downloading from up above and uploading from Mother Earth
    Just because we might have a spiritual outlook, doesn’t mean we have to have our heads in the clouds all the time. Staying grounded is just as important, and spending time in nature (both the great outdoors and the nature of ourselves) helps do just that.
  • A magnetic message attracts your kind of Right People
    But what else do magnets do? Repel. In this case, a magnetic message does more than just make you appealing to your target audience, it says loud and clear to the rest of the world that ‘nope, not for you, just move along’ and saves both you and them time in figuring that out!

And speaking of repelling… there’s Skunk Medicine.

A quick sketch from my RBBiz notes.

A quick sketch from my RBBiz notes.

While there are folks out there that keep skunks as pets and otherwise consider them awesome, the vast majority of people, when confronted with a skunk in the wild, will quickly vacate the area lest they be subject to the skunk’s defense mechanism. Talk about repulsion!

Skunk is teaching you that by walking your talk and by respecting yourself, you will create a position of strength and honored reputation. The carriage of your body relates to others what you believe about yourself. There is no need to bully, aggravate, torment, or overpower other being when your sense of “self” is intact. As with Skunk, the resonant field of energy around your body is relayed through the senses. Self-esteem permeates the body’s energy, and is instantly recognized on an extrasensory level by others.

So if you need to work on your self-esteem, channeling a bit of Skunk’s wisdom isn’t a bad way to go.

With all of this in mind, I was only slightly surprised to have my car surrounded by bees while at a stoplight on my way home last night. Where the bees came from I have no idea (I was in the middle lane of a very busy road and they seemed to be concentrated right where I was, even though I’ve never noticed anything like that there before), and I’m not generally a fan of flying things, especially those that have the power to sting me, but I gave this “random” occurrence some due consideration.

Bees are hardworking, industrious, and community-minded. Working within my community is the next logical step in the progression of my business goals. Some would say this is an affirmation of the path I’m on and I’m inclined to see it that way.

Otherwise we’re talking a freak swarm of bees and, well, I’m not sure that’s any better!

In the interest of community service, a member of my community is doing something pretty cool starting tomorrow. My Bean Buddy, Nicole Fende, is teaming up with Tai Goodwin to host the Profit Beyond the Book Telesummit. Nicole and I finished our books around the same time, and we’re both working on the next ones. But there’s more to getting the word out than just publishing, and that’s what I understand the telesummit to be about. It makes for a busy next 3 days if you want to watch both the Right Brainers in Business Video Summit and the Profit Beyond the Book Telesummit (the schedule overlap was not intentional), but sometimes it’s good to challenge ourselves, right?
