Sometimes I feel such deep sadness it’s as if it’s going to turn me inside out.
It usually hits me when I’m out and about in the world.
Suddenly, my highly sensitive system is struck with what feels like the depths of the entire planet’s suffering coursing through my body.
These moments used to take me out for days.
The way that would show up for me was pushing my way through as much busyness, disconnect, distraction and any possible way I could numb myself out until I was so overwhelmed and exhausted I couldn’t feel the sadness – or anything else.
As a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur (HSE) you possess skills and traits that are fused with your HSE Strengths of Intuition, Empathy, Deep Feeling … but did you know you have the power to connect with animals?
I mean genuine communication; a conversation in which your animals share their thoughts, feelings, concerns, issues, and lots more…
I want to introduce you to one of my most respected colleagues and my friend, Anna Twinney, the Founder of Reach Out to Horses, a deeply talented Natural Horsewoman and Animal Communicator. I’ve had the opportunity to not only witness Anna in action, but to train with her and her skills are beyond amazing.
She has created a unique program called 101 Things to Do with Your Horse that brings Anna’s work straight to you. She covers all the many things she teaches from Natural Horsemanship, Animal Communication, health and well-being, alternative healing methods, and lots more. Each lesson is in easily digestible, bite-size exercises streamed right to your computer, phone or tablet.
You will get a ton of ideas, help develop your fluency in the horse’s own language, fill in any training holes your horse might have, and take your partnership to a level you might not even knew existed.
That’s all great but the best thing about it is that you and your horse are going to have so much fun together!
Oh. And did I mention that it comes with some great bonuses and, with those bonuses, each lesson is less than $1. And Anna is giving everyone 30 days to try it out. And if for some reason it isn’t for you, you can cancel and get a full refund.
If you are looking for ways to connect and collaborate with your horse instead of merely doing TO them or getting THEM to do for you, then you will love Anna’s online horsemanship course. It will give you 101 reasons to get excited about trust-based connection and compassionate communication with your equine partners.
Your skills as a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur are about to go the next level, for sure!
When I was a little girl I never played “wedding” and I would also drag my baby dolls around by their feet (so the story goes) but what I DID do was turn every space I could into a classroom: my bedroom, my grandmother’s living room, pine needled spaces in the woods. Stuffed animals, couch cushions and tree stumps became my students. So no surprise I grew up to be a teacher!
First, in a traditional classroom and now in an environment by my own design as the Founder and Leader of the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur (HSE) movement since 2010.
The funny thing is that I resisted studying education as an undergrad because outer influences told me not to; yet, still, the path unfolded guiding me to consistently lead from the front of a room.
And I see this with a lot of HSEs, too: the heart says one thing, but outer influences convince the head it’s meant to be something else.
By the time the HSE gets to me the heart has been squashed, silenced, stomped on, burned, hurt and hushed more times than can be counted. So the guard is up and the protection layers are deep, which is why the “real work” I do requires a commitment to “de-layering” and deep listening in order to reconnect to that calling, each HSE’s Essential Self, and a bolstering of re-trust that the call of the heart is indeed true.
Then, as each HSE steps into doing the work to answer the call the reward is one of not only genuine peace and delight, but increased prosperity, too.
I, personally, can think of nothing more rewarding.
We’ve talked a lot on the Business Miracles podcast about our HSE Shadows and how to overcome them. But a question you need to make sure you are always asking is what signals your HSE Shadows are trying to send you?
On today’s episode, we’re going to talk about our Shadow Signals. When you experience an HSE Shadow behavior, there’s nothing wrong with you. HSE Shadows aren’t “bad”. In fact, they are helping you; literally asking you to pay attention and giving you a choice. Listen in to learn how to hear the signal and change your response to these HSE Shadow signals to help rather than hurt you.
What’s your story? Every Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur (HSE) has one. A story that’s been the beating drum of your highly sensitive nature, shaping everything about who you are and what you experience. Including your business.
At the past in-person Training Retreat I led for my Business Miracles Mentoring Program Members I taught an entire session on Personal Responsibility vs. Taking Things Personally.
Most HSE stories consist in some shape or form around “taking things personally”.
I know this because I am constantly hearing this from HSEs and I can tell they don’t even realize that their justification about why marketing is so hard, a prospect was so offensive or that everything about their business is so overwhelming, is in the light that it is all personal.
Welcome back to the HSE Feature series on A Course In Business Miracles, where I speak with HSE’s who have found their true calling and conquered their HSE Shadows to create the life they dreamed of.
Today, I’m talking with HSE Speaker and Singer, Stephanie Bonte-Lebair to hear how before she joined the Business Miracles Mentoring Program, she was in complete overwhelm and the HSE Coping Mechanism of Pushing. She had 40 private clients she was seeing every single weekday, and she was only charging $60 an hour to NOW being able to generate $10,000 in one conversation. She was also was teaching until nine o’clock at night, and on weekends, and had no time for her family to NOW having weekends off to spend with her family and do the things she loves. Listen in to learn how Stephanie overcame her HSE Coping Mechanism and created a bountiful business out of a stressful and overwhelming life.
It takes a lot of courage to be a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur (HSE); to pretend that it doesn’t is just plain silly.
At a recent in-person Training Retreat I led for the members of my Business Miracles Mentoring Programs I taught that it takes both Grace and Grit to be able to access resilience rather than get caught down the rabbit hole of resistance.
There are a lot of important steps to take along The Business Miracles Path of Resistance to Resilience®, but most importantly we need to be able to face our HSE Shadows™ and learn how to shift out of our shame; which is absolutely doable when you are committed to this path as a Core Practice.
How to best connect with ideal prospects as a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur really depends on which HSE Coping Mechanism you tend to gravitate toward …
If you’re a Pusher than it’s important for you to remember you’re not meant to make your HSE Financial Success happen on your own. You want to invoke Divine Order (or whatever language works best for you) every day by saying, “The perfect prospects are already selected. Each one is arriving in the exact right way at the exact right time. Thank you and thank you!”
If you’re a Hider it’s important for you to remember that the Universe is expecting you to do your part each and every day by taking physical action. So, you want to invoke Divine Order by saying, “The perfect prospects are already selected and on their way to me. Give me the thoughts to think, the words to speak and the actions to take in order to do my part to connect with each and everyone of them. Thank you and thank you!”
Welcome to episode 74 of A Course In Business Miracles, where we’ll learn how to make more money using your HSE Strengths. Learning how to thrive using your highly sensitive nature from a place of STRENGTH is the single most important shift every Highly Sensitive who’s called to be self-employed can make. Want to know a secret? It’s actually WHY you’ve been called to be self-employed in the first place. That’s right.
The work we do in Business Miracles is an inner and outer approach. A full retraining about how you see and feel your Highly Sensitive self, your business, and overall what it means to be in business.” – Heather Dominick
