It’s fascinating to me to watch how the mind can take something so rich and make it wreak with lack…
This past January I had the privilege of leading a one day, in-person Round Table for the 12 Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs in my Eminence Mentoring Program.
And it is a privilege.
And not just for me.
It’s an extremely rare opportunity for 12 high-level HSE’s to come together in person and activate a group-mind propelled by HSE Strengths.
The tangible shifts and thought patterns that occur are deep and the ripple effect throughout the upcoming year, wide.
These HSEs have made massive strides in releasing their HSE Coping Mechanisms of Pushing, Hiding and Combo-Plattering and because of this have created financial results such as:
– filling their coaching practice in less than six months,
– maintaining 6+ figures while working 50% less than before,
– doubling income from year-to-year…
– And so much more.
These high-level HSEs have expressed to me that they know how fortunate they are to do the “real work” we do together while being led by a deeply conscious and skilled teacher, facilitator and mentor such as myself and yet still the ego mind comes in with its monkey tricks …
After an extremely powerful, transformative day being able to witness how the mind still says “Is this enough?” (Which of course translates to “Am I enough?”) Or, “should we be doing more of like what the other 80% does?” (Which, of course, translates to, “should I be more like the other 80%?”)
And then there is the super sticky ego-mind thought of “Should I have to pay for a day like this?” (which, of course, translates to, “Should people pay me for what I do?”)
The good news is that since these HSEs are mentoring at such a high level they can catch these monkey-mind thoughts (With my mentoring support) by the tail quite quickly, swing them over their head, toss them out and let them go.
Otherwise, they wouldn’t be high-level HSEs.
So, where do you see your monkey mind trying to project your worst fears outwards?
And are you willing to courageously turn these thoughts inward to look at what about yourself is meant to change?
And then do the deep, real work to make it happen?
As an HSE everything in your business will accelerate in the best of ways when you do.

I’m excited to share with you my latest ACTIVATION VIDEO about The Power of Your Mind To Influence Your Marketing! It’s short, but POWERFUL. You can find it—and more—on my YouTube Channel. Just click below to watch the video:
I’ve created these videos because as a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur (HSE) you are literally coded to be a successful coach, healing practitioner, or creative entrepreneur. Everything the world needs right now.
And, yet, because of the tendency for HSEs to lean toward our Shadows rather than our Strengths we need to constantly be engaging in the Core Practice of shifting our perceptions about who we are and what we are capable of creating. According to A Course In Miracles, this IS the definition of a miracle.
That’s what this ACTIVATION VIDEO is designed to actualize for you, a Business Miracle.
Here are some other activations you’ll find waiting for you, too: … Read More about The Power of Your Mind To Influence Your Marketing

When it comes to the primary Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur Shadow of Overwhelm part of what makes this so pervasive for highly sensitive is the way we see it.
Most HSEs will spend a lot of time and energy and even resources trying to get RID of overwhelm.
This is like trying to no longer be human.
As a HSE you’re coded the way you’re coded so rather than it being about trying to erase who you are it’s about learning how to approach who you are, differently.
Your system is going to overload, misfire and steam up, no question. The key is how you respond when it does.
One of the teachings I share in my Business Miracles Mentoring Programs is how to “flip the switch” when overwhelmed kicks in, so it doesn’t overtake you.
And there are a lot of happier, healthier and wealthier (Because it’s hard to build a business from anxiety, panic, fear and overwhelm, as you know) HSEs because of it.
Thank goodness 🙂

It saddens me how many Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs continuously and desperately look outside themselves for the answer to their business success. Searching for just the right formula, coach, mentor who will make the overwhelm all go away and money effortlessly flow into their bank account.
A good coach or mentor will never insist that they have “the answer”, but instead patiently walk by your side teaching you HOW to find the answer.
Anyone promising a formalized fix is forgetting the power of the Golden Rule – whether you’re highly sensitive or not – know thyself and to thyself be true.

One of the most alluring parts of working as a self-employed entrepreneur is the freedom we get with our schedule. However, this also can become a source of great stress for HSE’s, often resulting in a state of overwhelm that is hard to shake.
In this episode of A Course In Business Miracles, you will learn how to manage overwhelm as a highly sensitive entrepreneur, and how the ways we manage our creative chaos can both help and hurt us on our path towards success as Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs.
If you are expecting the world of being an entrepreneur to someday even out and be more reliable, you’re going to be waiting a long, long time.” – Heather Dominick
- How the state of overwhelm affects us
- Why we need to think of overwhelm as an experience and not a state of being
- How to manage your creative energy
- The common stories of overwhelm with entrepreneurs
- The most common myths of managing your energy
- How becoming self-employed can leave us in want of structure
- Why we need to release the belief that our work will ever be linear
- Why the world of self-employed people is a controlled chaos, and how we can take advantage of that
What activates overwhelm is not so much of what you actually need to manage…but the thought of what might happen if those tasks come your way.” – Heather Dominick
The state of overwhelm is not something that you are. You don’t get overwhelmed, you are not overwhelmed. The truth is that you experience it.” – Heather Dominick

Have you heard this saying, “can’t see the forest through the trees”? This is what happens when Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs are overcome by their Shadows.
It’s like the world goes black and you can’t see 2 feet in front of you.
Recently, one of my 6-Month Mentoring members had exactly this happen to her.
Even though she raved about the tools and teaching I share in my program it’s like all of that went right out the window the minute one of her corporate clients reared their ugly head.
And instead of turning to the tools, teachings and mentoring support available she chose to get sucked right into her Shadows – feelings of overwhelm, despondency, despair.
Instead of connecting for the support that we offered her she chose to be in the soothing section of the HSE Coping Cycle and went for a walk.

Sometimes there’s nothing left to do but surrender.
This doesn’t mean you go into the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur Coping Mechanism of Hiding.
This doesn’t mean you surrender your needs or continue to be in the HSE Shadows of People-Pleasing or Over-Responsibility.
This doesn’t mean that you don’t care.
It means that you’re willing to show up fully in all of your highly sensitive vulnerability and say to God/Universe/Source/Spirit,
“SHOW ME. I AM YOURS. YOU ARE MINE.
SHOW ME THE WAY FORWARD”.
It means you’re willing to set boundaries with your time and to create the space to get quiet enough to listen to the guidance that’s waiting for you and brave enough to follow it step-by-step out of your comfort cocoon. … Read More about I give up

The HSE Shadow of Comparison is pervasive.
Time and time again I hear from HSEs that they are frustrated that they aren’t like this 80%er or that 80%er.
Or how come they don’t have what so-and-so has in their business?
And, “why bother?” because the HSE will never be able to be like major mama marketer over there.
When this HSE Shadow comes slithering and it’s slick and slimy with lack and just oozes limitation.
It completely cuts you off from the massive Force that’s available to provide for ALL of us.
But more than anything this grossly, disgusting Shadow removes your focus from the service you are here to provide.

Sooo … Detachment. This is an ultimate Core Practice for any human being and then you’ve got to raise it by like a 1000 for those of us who are highly sensitive.
Yet, a necessary Core Practice it is – especially as part of using the HSE Selling Conversation™ to enroll clients.
The problem is that so many HSEs confuse detachment with “not caring” or “being passive”.
And neither is true.
Detachment is about the willingness to step out of the way, to release all the defenses you use as a highly sensitive to attempt to protect yourself from HSE Shadows like Overwhelm, People-Pleasing and Digestive Issues. … Read More about who cares
