Nervous System Calm on Business Miracles with Heather Dominick

We as a species have an innate desire to seek out comfort, to soothe ourselves, and avoid difficulty. But what if you found out that these things may be the exact opposite of what we need to grow? That our transformation requires living in this discomfort?

Today on A Course In Business Miracles, we’re going to talk about how we can experience this growth while also calming ourselves and our nervous system. As a Highly Sensitive Leader, you’re willing to do whatever it takes to learn how to manage your nervous system rather than be a victim to the highly sensitive nervous system’s tendency to overwhelm in response to stimulation. So let’s learn how!

Listen in to learn about the transformation process, the danger of solely seeking comfort, and three tools to calm your Highly Sensitive nervous system.

I’ve used this for years as a self-employed highly sensitive person

self-employed highly sensitive person prayer

There’s a powerful prayer from A Course In Miracles that when said daily, as a self-employed highly sensitive person, as a Core Practice will absolutely change the state of your highly sensitive relationship to overwhelm:

“Show me where to go, what to do, what to say and to whom.”

I’ve personally been a devotee to this prayer for years.

But there is one caveat …

After saying this prayer, you must be willing to use your Highly Sensitive Strengths of Intuition and Being Deeply Spiritual By Nature to actually HEAR/SEE/FEEL the guidance you are given, LISTEN to that guidance and then ACT on what you’ve HEARD/SEEN/FELT.

It’s that last part of ACT that seems to trip most highly sensitives up, the place where most stop.

Which is why my teachings for Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs and Leaders is all about how to get through that bump, over that hump, past the place that sticks you every time.

This is also why so many of the Highly Sensitive Leaders within the Business Miracles Community are continuing to thrive through these Exceptional Times. They are able to rise up, pivot their businesses as needed, where needed and creatively serve their clients by using Community, Core Practice and Consistency to attract income that even before the pandemic seemed impossible…

The reason these successes are pouring in, even during a GLOBAL PANDEMIC, is because consistently, since day one, I’ve been cultivating with them and in them their ability to:

Think The Thoughts
Speak The Words and
TAKE THE ACTIONS
needed to bring each of them to this point.

And they have each been willing to dive deep into the real work of Doing Things Differently.

BOOM!

In Faith,
Heather

changed my mind

November 05, 2020  |  Posted by Heather Dominick  |  Add A Comment

I was about to write my monthly “what I’ve been reading” email, but I changed my mind because as I write this one week before you read it a lot rests on the horizon such as the United States Election, a new wave of lockdowns across Europe, and, for myself personally, I’m preparing to lead my now second virtual Training Retreat of 2020 for the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs and Leaders of the Business Miracles Community.

It. Is. A. Lot.

So, all that kept coming to mind was loving kindness for you, for me, for all of us today, tomorrow, through these Exceptional Times and for years to come.

With that in mind this is what I share with you today:

May you and all your loved ones, be safe and protected from inner and outer harm.

May you be healthy and strong of body.

May you be happy and peaceful of mind.

May you take care of yourself, easily.

In Faith,
XO. Heather 

95 Transform Anxiety

November 04, 2020  |  Posted by Heather Dominick  |  Add A Comment

Transform Anxiety on Business Miracles with Heather Dominick

We as HSEs have learned to live with our ups and downs, through every coping cycle and maladaptation. And this leaves us with perpetual anxiety. HSEs in these positions can feel the need to take responsibility for every little thing or to run away completely and hide from them.

Today on A Course In Business Miracles, we’re going to learn how to transform this into action. We’re going to take our seemingly inevitable fall into problematic coping behaviors and turn it around into success in our life and in our business.

Listen in to learn where our anxiety stems from, how we can relieve this ongoing stress, and what we can do to relieve this anxiety.

It’s our commitment to the coping cycle that will keep us in resistance.” – Heather Dominick

Show Notes:

  • Why it’s so hard to shake our coping cycles
  • The excuses we tend to make for our inaction
  • Why anxiety is not an individual act
  • What the “absorber” is in a group dynamic and why HSEs tends to fill that role
  • Where our coping systems develop out of this role
  • What we can do about this

Anxiety is often directly connected to comparison.” – Heather Dominick

Anxiety is not an individual act.” – Heather Dominick

I. Just. KNOW.

October 30, 2020  |  Posted by Heather Dominick  |  Add A Comment

I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on the connection between Intuition and Trust, both of which are key aspects in our ability to truly anchor our highly sensitive strengths. This reflection is part of my process as I prepare to lead a powerful Virtual Training Retreat on exactly that: Anchoring Your Highly Sensitive Strengths to Lead More Boldly Through These Exceptional Times And Beyond.

Accessing our intuition, and trusting that it is here to guide us – especially during these uncertain times – allows us opportunities for creative solutions and transformation, IF we are willing to do things differently.

Daring to be different means that we no longer default into old ways of looking outside for validation or permission.

Because guess what? You don’t need approval or permission to trust your intuition!

So, “I just know.” is your new response the minute you (or someone else) start to question your intuition with questions like:

“How do you know?
Why are you doing that?
What’s your reason?
What proof do you have?
What are the facts?”,

And you’ll want to write that down.

I. Just. KNOW.

The challenge is to stay in that space of, “I just know.” when you’re being questioned by your own ego mind or by someone else.

The more you enter into building this discomfort resilience (according to teacher and Buddhist monk, Pema Chödrön) as an ongoing practice, the more your intuition will be available to you as a deliberate tool when it comes to making decisions, discerning, and determining.

And, as with all things, it is meant to be an ongoing practice and a process. ✨✨

IN FAITH,
Heather

my intuitive hit

October 23, 2020  |  Posted by Heather Dominick  |  Add A Comment

Recently I got the intuitive hit that it was time to return to making social media videos. Now, if you know me, you know I do NOT like making videos.

As a Highly Sensitive, I would much rather be working quietly in the corner than in front of the camera, and if you’re reading this, my sense is that you can probably relate.

However, I’ve definitely learned over the years to pay attention to my Highly Sensitive Strength of Intuition.

At the same time, I’ve been hearing from the Highly Sensitives in the Business Miracles Community what I’ve been teaching and training on in regards to Highly Sensitive Leadership through these Exceptional Times has been super supportive, and they’ve asked if I would share in a larger way.

So here I am, a Super Uber Highly Sensitive, posting videos on social media – all to support Highly Sensitive Leaders to step into a new level of leadership that’s very much needed in the world right now.

I received some amazing responses after posting my first video asking what makes a Highly Sensitive Leader, AND I also got a few private messages asking me about a phrase that I used at the end of that video when I said, “This Global pandemic has shown us that there is no longer room for ‘pretty marketing’.”

As I read through several messages asking “Heather what did you mean when you said pretty marketing?”, it made me think of a friend that I had in Graduate School.

Any time she didn’t like how things were going, her response was always:

Taller
Blonder
Thinner

As someone who happens to be shorter, browner, and curvier, that tells you a lot about where myself esteem was in grad school, but it also shows how, pre-pandemic, all of us played a part in valuing “pretty marketing” – believing that taller, blonder and thinner meant better.

“If someone has a lot of shoes that must mean that they are good at what they do.”

“If someone lives in a really big house that must mean that they’re the best coach.”

Really?!

As a result of this Global Pandemic, we are being called as Highly Sensitive Leaders to change this conversation.

What would you be able to do differently if you gave just as much value to your intuition as you gave pre-pandemic to pretty marketing?

What would you be able to create by valuing intuition over influence? Take a moment to answer this question for yourself. No right, no wrong, no judgement.

Stay tuned! On the next video I will teach you how to take your response and turn it into what I am calling Legacy Messaging, which is truly going to change how you show up as a Highly Sensitive Leader, whether that be at the dinner table conversation, in your business and marketing, leading in the board room or anywhere else that you are meant to show up as a Highly Sensitive Leader who uses your strengths to excel in Business and Life by doing things differently.

In Faith,
Heather
