Back in the day working as a high school drama teacher I had atradition of counting down 30 days until my birthday on the blackboard (yes, we used actual chalk in the days when I taught in a traditional classroom!)
There in the upper right-hand corner blocked by a chalk drawn border it said, “30 Days Until Ms. Dominick’s Birthday!” and then “29 Days Until Ms. Dominick’s Birthday!”; you get the picture …
1) I figured if I was going to be working on my birthday best that everyone knew about it so it could be a full-out, fun celebration.
2) This was a light way for me to guide the young people I taught through experiencing that there were other human beings outside of themselves (was I a highly sensitive teacher or what?).
3) It was important to me to create a holistic learning environment within a system that tended to often be rigid and over-structured.
All to say, these are values I still hold today as a person who’s been self-employed for the past 15 years as well as Founder and Leader of the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur® Movement since 2010.
AND! KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE BLOG BECAUSE IT’S ALMOST 30 DAYS UNTIL MY BIRTHDAY AND I’VE GOT A SURPRISE FOR YOU!
We all have habitual ways of behaving when we are triggered. When this behavior works against you, you are in your HSE Shadows. So, how do you shift an HSE Shadow? You learn to shine the light on what is meant to change.
Welcome to episode 52 of A Course in Business Miracles, Shifting Out of Your HSE Shadows. Listen in to learn how to first identify the HSE Shadows that are working against you in your business, and then how to shift back into your HSE Strengths so that your business and everyone you serve are able to benefit.

Being self-employed is downright scary and anyone who tells you it isn’t is either:
A) lying or B) of the other 80% who get a thrill out of major life risk-taking.
It’s scary because it tosses right in your face all the things you’re able to hide from when you work for someone else.
– needing to market your business (Vulnerability) – selling your services (Self-Worth) – massive organization (Self-Discipline) – scheduling and planning (Self-Value) – the will to keep going (Deep Belief and Trust)
Bottom-line: if you want to fast-track personal growth – start a business.
Giving-Receiving-Receiving-Giving … it all tends to be tricky for us HSEs … Our hearts guide us to be generous and then we can tend to over-give and feel resentfulor get afraid that we will be taken advantage of or hold back because “Why does everyone always need something from me all of the time?”…
Or give, give, give until there’s literally nothing left for ourselves and“No, really, you don’t need to pay me.” or “Gosh! No! Don’t buy me lunch!”or “I can’t accept that gift, it’s too much.” …
On and on; back and forth…
And ultimately it all comes down to you and your ability to use your HSE Strength of Intuition partnered with discernment to learn how to truly give when you feel called to WITHOUT ATTACHMENT and to receive graciously and abundantly every time it (whatever “it” might be in each moment) is offered.
This is how your highly sensitive self-esteem is bolstered and your finances begin to flow.
The Divine will always provide for you, but you must do your part by opening up to say, YES.
YES, I am genuinely happy to give this to you.
YES, I am genuinely happy to receive this from you.
Oh, and, YES, I will do my part to ASK for what I need when I need it and with full personal responsibility make a next choice and then take a next action whether I receive directly from each action or not.

I had achieved the highest level of income that I have had to date in my business, but in that process, I was completely exhausted. Even more, I was not feeling like I was showing up in any of the roles in a way that I truly wanted to.” – Brianna Sylver

So many Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs (HSEs) get freaked out about networking events, fearing the overwhelm, while truly, as HSEs, we are coded to have networking really work for us.
When we do it OUR way, not the 80%er way.
So, let me ask you this, have you ever been at a party or maybe just at the supermarket or say on the subway (for any other HSEs who happen to live in a city like I do) and suddenly a stranger is telling you their deepest, darkest secrets?
This is what I call, “The Stranger Incident”. Non-highly sensitives can smell you a mile away. Energetically they can tell you’re a Deep Listener. … Read More about freaked out!
I’m excited to share with you my latest ACTIVATION VIDEO about Releasing the Impact of Someone Else’s Negative Energy! 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.
