It’s been 5 days since I left Scottsdale, and I’m still feeling so energetically aligned and giddy with happiness.
This was my second retreat since I started working with the Transform Coaching Academy, and it exceeded all of my expectations–and then some!
We entered the retreat feeling so prepared and grounded, with everything in place well ahead of time, which I think really helped set the blissful tone to the weekend.
Someone mentioned that the retreat felt ‘harmonious’ and I couldn’t agree more. It just flowed, in a way that was truly connected with divine energy.
Here are my biggest takeaways, breakthroughs and revelations I had during our 3 day retreat in Scottsdale:
1. The Antidote to Privilege is Service
Such a simple phrase helped put so much into perspective.
I’ve been putting in work to understand my privilege and how I can use it to truly make a positive difference in the lives of others, and this phrase by TCA founder Eve Agee summed it up so well.
To me, service means putting the collective good of others at the forefront of our decision making, in both our lives and my business. We are in total alignment with our highest self when every action we do is out of love and service to all, not just to ourselves.
When we connect to true service, we are actively disrupting privilege–whether it be race, class, ableism, orientation–because we no longer passively buy into systems that perpetuate unfair and unjust privilege. Connecting to that sense of service and active intention to our businesses can help build compassionate communities that lift up all people.
2. "I Am Ready. Trust."
This phrase came to me during one of Eve’s incredibly powerful visualizations. I’ve done countless of these visualizations and processes by now, but I’ve never been met with such a clear message.
In it, Eve walked us through meeting various forms of our future selves, to see what kind of message they had for us. Each time I heard the same message “you are ready. Trust.”
This could apply to so many situations in my life, friendships, relationships, my career. Accepting this new truth has already helped clear some blocks and limiting beliefs I have about being visible or speaking.
Shifting from a limiting mindset of “I’ll be ready when…” to embracing “I’m ready now” can be a total game-changer in your business.
Will you ever feel 100% ready? Doubtful.
But it is so much more important to just get out there. To learn, grow, make mistakes and evolve. There’s so much strength and beauty in getting comfortable with being uncomfortable.
Leaving the retreat, I felt much more confident in sharing my message and story with a wider audience.
3. You are Your Own Fingerprint to this World
In a world where every market seems oversaturated and overdone, it’s hard to lose sight of how deeply magnificent and unique each one of us is.
Much like a fingerprint, however, there is no one really quite like us. No one is telling the exact same story, has the exact same training and background, or is offering the exact same services.
Each one of us puts our own little spin on everything we do, and even though we might feel discouraged or like we’re not offering something different to the world…it’s important to reset and realize that we’re all different, and we have a very specific purpose to fill.
You are attracting people that resonate with your unique message, one that no one else in the world can tell.
There are so many more emotions and thoughts about the retreat that I can’t quite put into words yet. I manifested some insanely amazing things in those 3 days that I hope to share with you in the future.
Having a hand in planning and organizing these events has made the whole experience even more special. I see how much effort and love goes into every detail to ensure that attendees have a magical and moving experience.
After every live event I return home a better, more grounded, more aligned version of myself, and I am already looking forward to the next one.
Have you had any big breakthroughs at a retreat or live event? I’d love to hear about them!
With Deepest Gratitude,
