An inside peek for Highly Sensitive Leaders

July 09, 2020  |  Posted by Heather Dominick  |  Add A Comment

I wanted to give you an inside peek into something that happened this week that was a true miracle…

I spent two whole days facilitating a *virtual* experiential process with over 100 Highly Sensitive Leaders from around the globe in the Business Miracles Community stretching from Hawaii to Saudi Arabia, Thailand and down to Brazil and Australia. Some members got up at the crack of dawn, some stayed up through the night and for some it was already tomorrow.

I, honestly, wasn’t sure how it was going to go because (honestly, again) do we actually know how ANYTHING is going to go these days?

What transpired was truly miraculous. A-HAs, insights, tears – and, most important, deep transformation.

It was a deep demonstration of what is possible IN SPITE OF when you bring together the power of Highly Sensitives who know they are here to use their unique strengths to better the world.

It’s an understatement to say my heart was beyond full.

So, I wanted to share just some of the incredibleness with you. Here’s an inside peek into Day 1 of the Business Miracles Summer Virtual Training Retreat, all around the topic of “How to have our highly sensitive needs easily met while meeting the needs of others” so that we can be of greater service to the healing the world.

Listen in (less than 2 minutes) as I share about the impacts of relationship dynamics for those of us who are highly sensitive and give insight into what’s really keeping you stuck.

As highly sensitives we are being called to RISE UP to serve like never before and to lead differently as a result of these times we are graced to be experiencing – together. The time of Highly Sensitive Leadership has come.

If you know you’re meant to join us for our next training retreat in the fall, then please submit your application to be considered for this most important leadership training: www.highlysensitiveleadership.com

Highly Sensitive leader Testimonial

what I’m reading, watching, listening to (and tools I’m using, too!)

July 02, 2020  |  Posted by Heather Dominick  |  Add A Comment

I’ve been asked a lot during these Exceptional Times of 2020 how I’m staying sane, remaining grounded, continuing to lead my community of fellow Highly Sensitive Leaders from around the world with grace and overall just keeping my sh*t together as I face some major personal life changes as result of these times as well.

Soooo … I thought it would be fun to share on the first Friday of each month what I’m reading, watching, listening to (and tools I’m using, too) to keep myself moving forward through these times. Here we go!

1. The Help, by Kathryn Stocket – This is a third time re-read for me, but one of my favorite books next to my all-time favorite, To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper LeeA pleasure read that is also a reminder why the 2020 Racial Justice Movement is beyond needed now and into the future.

2. ‘My body is a confederate monument’, by Caroline Randall Williams – Speaking of the 2020 Racial Justice Movement, this is one of the most powerful essays I’ve read in a long time. So far, I’ve already read it through twice.

3. Keep Sharp: Build a Better Brain at Any Age, by Sanjay Gupta – I believe I’m a little late to the game on the magnificence of this author, but I promptly developed a super crush when I started reading this book at the beginning of 2020. I fell off the wagon from this read during the first months of the pandemic, but I’m back at it and as fascinated as ever.

1. Red Oaks (Amazon Prime) – I often rely on my friend, Shira, for the best “TV” shows to be watching because she knows me so well and her recommendations always hit the mark. This show being a great example. 1980’s nostalgia. Brilliant acting. Enough said.

2. DARK (Netflix) – Because of my Sweetheart Husband I watch more sci-fi than I ever would without him (which would be none). I can’t get into everything sci-fi, but when the show is super smart and from Germany (I’m a lover of European television and even more so considering who knows when I’ll be able to travel there again), I’m in. And this show is such a psychological mindbender it’s valuable for the brain exercise alone. Season 3 just landed.

3. BlackAF (Netflix) – I’ve been a fan of Rashida Jones since her days on the television show, Parks and Recreation, and her continued talented performance is stunning along with the rest of this exceptional cast. Plus, another enlightening Racial Justice Movement perspective during these Exceptional Times.

1. Armchair Expert (Podcast) with Dax Shepard and Monica Padman – One of my former students from my Long Island high school teaching days (who is now a successful, professional comedian) turned me onto this podcast last year. It’s smart, witty and goes way beyond hosting Hollywood guests. They’ve also done a masterful job with keeping their current guests matched to our fast-changing times.

2. Coronavirus: Fact vs. Fiction (Podcast) – If there wasn’t enough of a reason already to love Sanjay Gupta, here it is. A voice of reason to cut through the lack of presidential leadership on everything COVID-19.

1. Applying the 50 Miracle Principles of A Course In Miracles to accelerate Highly Sensitive Leadership through these Exceptional Times – through the first weeks of the 2020 Global Pandemic I showed up live Monday through Friday to lead 10 Minutes of Daily Activation to globally support Highly Sensitive Leaders in navigating the confusion that was suddenly upon all of us.

Once I completed those calls on May 18th, I promptly received the guidance to begin hosting Weekly Activations starting June 1st and so I did exactly that.

Leading these 30 minute calls each week has deepened my study of the psychological and spiritual curriculum of A Course In Miracles more than I could have anticipated. It’s been a balm to my soul during these Exceptional Times and this is the feedback I’ve received from participants as well. I invite you to join us. It’s free and you can join at any time as you will never be behind.

Hope you find something useful (or just plain fun) in these recommendations to support yourself with keeping it all moving forward during these Exceptional Times as a Highly Sensitive Leader. I’d love to hear what you’re reading, watching and listening to as well; I’m always open to being introduced to something new and will happily give you credit if it’s something I end up latching onto. Just comment below and let me know. 🙂

We will continue to transcend these times – together.

In Faith,
XO. Heather 

86 HSE Feature with Interior Designer, Penny Bartlow

HSE Feature with Interior Designer, Penny Bartlow on Business Miracles with Heather Dominick

Welcome to the A Course In Business Miracles podcast! Today we have an HSE Feature, where we showcase a wonderful part of our HSE community. And this episode features interior designer and author Penny Bartlow.

Penny Bartlow is the founder of PKB Design, which provides professional interior design services around the New York area, serving everyone from individuals and families to state and federal government offices. Penny has also authored many published articles on interior design that are featured in leading magazines in her field, as well as a book titled “Lead From Within”, which helps people learn how to apply their integrity in both your personal and professional lives.

Since joining the HSE community, Penny has learned a lot about what has held her back in the past, and what drives her into her future. She now knows that the good and the bad don’t happen to her, they happen through her, and has learned that she could design her business to work for her and her spiritual life.

Listen in as I talk with HSE Interior Designer, Penny Bartlow to hear how after she joined the Business Miracles Mentoring Programs and learned she was highly sensitive she then also learned to use her strengths to have more balance in life and abundance in business including through these Exceptional Times.

what Dr. Aron told me – highly sensitive person

June 26, 2020  |  Posted by Heather Dominick  |  Add A Comment

Dr. Elaine Aron highly sensitive person

Right before the global pandemic of 2020 hit, I had a session with Dr. Aron, author of The Highly Sensitive Person. I was connecting with her to get her insight about what it takes for a highly sensitive person to get their needs met as part of my preparation to lead a Training Retreat on this very subject that was meant to take place in May 2020.

Then the world changed.

However, what hasn’t changed is a golden nugget I took away from that conversation which was the concept of what it means to be a “high-functioning highly sensitive”.

This nugget has grown into a treasure chest over these past months as I’ve gone deep while stepping up to serve the Highly Sensitive Leaders in my Business Miracles Community through these Exceptional Times. I’ve opened the door wide for each member to truly begin to claim and develop what leadership is meant to look like for each of them as a high-functioning highly sensitive through and beyond these times.

I’ve led real-time trainings and Roundtable conversations about

  • how to use intuition with everything from planning to rest and replenishment
  • emotional intelligence in communication and marketing
  • how to innovatively pivot
  • and now, finally, during the second week of July we will be spending two whole days in an experiential process to get clear about how our needs are able to be met as highly sensitives while serving the needs of others – Highly Sensitive Relationship Leadership.

Our two days together with be virtual, but they will be powerful and I’m excited. 🙂

As highly sensitives we are being called to RISE UP to serve like never before and to lead differently as a result of these times we are graced to be experiencing – together. The time of Highly Sensitive Leadership has come.

Highly Sensitive Leadership A Course In Miracles Principle 1

One of the many and most recent ways I’ve been stepping forward to support the Highly Sensitive Leaders I mentor through these Exceptional Times is through offering a free Weekly Activation: Applying the 50 Miracle Principles of A Course In Miracles to accelerate Highly Sensitive Leadership through these Exceptional Times.

Here is a summary for you from Principle #1:

1. There are 2 basic perceptions in the world. The Ego (the fear based mind) and God (our higher self).

2. The perception we choose determines the way we define a problem, which then automatically determines how we will resolve the problem.

3. The untrained Highly Sensitive perceives that the world is happening TO them and is tempted to default into coping mechanisms and shadows.

4. The Highly Sensitive Leader recognizes that WE define the problem and that WE have a choice in how we respond to, and therefore resolve the problem.

5. Every problem creates an opportunity for creative solutions, learning, growth and miracles.

If you would like to participate in these FREE Weekly Miracle Activations, you can join us here.

Inspirational Sunrise Highly Sensitive Leader

We no longer have the privilege of time on our side. All you need to do is look 2020 squarely in the eyes to see that a quickening has occurred and we are being called to RISE … to rise above seeing our highly sensitive leader nature as less than, to rise above waiting to be given permission and to rise above the wounds of our past.

To say once and for all,

“Yes, my way is different. Yes, I might be quieter than some. And, yes, I feel things deeply. Yet it is because of these ways that I’m meant to lead through these turbulent times and the world will be in a better place because of it. I’m no longer meant to or willing to take a back seat to those who are louder or bigger. I no longer believe—even unconsciously—that this means they are better. My time to lead from my highly sensitive strengths has come.”

You know you’re different, and that this difference is no longer something you’re meant to hide. Time to stop feeling confused and believing you need to fit in to the way it has always been done.

You know you’re intuitive, and that now this intuition is meant to be your primary guide. Time to stop pretending this is less valuable than logic.

You know you’re a deep feeler, and that these feelings are meant to inform you. Time to stop being overwhelmed by the emotions of others and instead use this as motivation to act.

You know you’re empathic, and that this is the new communication super power that the world needs to hear right now. Time to stop ignoring what you know must be said.

You know you’re a deep believer in justice, and this is the stand that must be taken. Time to stop taking the back seat.

The time for Highly Sensitive Leadership has come.

If you know you’re meant to join with others and dive into a deep training process to position yourself as the leader you’re meant to be in your work and life as a highly sensitive please visit www.highlysensitiveleadership.com and apply to join us.

Regine Roy Highly Sensitive Leader Testimonial

This is my commitment

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

I fell in love with my husband because early on when we were dating, he said to me, “I’m committed to the growth of our relationship.”

This struck me in the heart because “commitment to growth” has always defined my purpose for doing anything. 

It’s how I show up in my marriage, my friendships, my team, my business, my life’s work, my life. I’m always looking for: what can be learned here? And how can we improve based on what we’ve just learned?

I pride myself on being on the cutting edge of self-evolution, but this past week I was humbly shown where I’ve missed the mark.

For many reasons (that I could list here but won’t) I’ve considered myself racially aware most of my life, but clearly not nearly as aware as is needed and now I see the next level of how I’m meant to learn, grow, evolve and do differently.

One example is I’ve been aware for years that my team does not reflect the diversity I’ve desired but I have not taken action beyond this awareness. I am committed to that action now.

Another example is I’ve been aware how my curriculum does not address racism or diversity but have not taken action beyond this awareness. I am committed to that action now.

And how I’ve used my highly sensitive nature as a reason to be satisfied with awareness vs. action in this area of my professional life. I am committed to doing it differently now.

I don’t know what it will or is meant to look like, but I’m willing to show up and discover the way step by step. One, this is how we do things best as highly sensitives and, two, the mark of effective leadership is notneeding to know all the answers before taking action, but simply the willingness to be in action from a place of purpose, education and intention.

This is my commitment.

I share all of this because I know as highly sensitives our minds will often stop us with the limiting thought, “I won’t be able to handle it.” Yet, if there is anything 2020 has shown us, we can handle much more than we ever realized before.

I look forward to continuing to show up as the Highly Sensitive Leaders these Exceptional Times are calling us up to be – together.

In Faith,
Heather
