Purpose > Pain

Last night, one of my goddess besties + fellow leader in Inner Glow CircleOlivia Chapman, said to me, “Make your purpose greater than your pain.” And she’s right.
You can always count on a true #soulsister to give you the BEST advice. In moments of grief and heartbreak, this is what we must do. Listen to our #sisters. Listen to ourselves.

My heart is a confusing mix of deep hurt and compassion. The past week has been filled with ups, downs, mystery and non-answers. I’ve cried during business meetings, and I’ve cried myself to sleep.

Why?

Because I’m a #goddess. I know the healing it is in the feeling it, and so I’m willing to go there again and again.

Losing my brother earlier this year taught me how to deal with deep tragedy. I ground myself. I take baths. I lay on the floor. I go into the forest, look at the sky and wonder WHY, not expecting an answer back.

Most of all, I remember what’s still possible. I can still breathe. I can still create. I can still make magic with my sisters. I can still lead, even from the mess. I can still rise up, ascend above all of this and literally transmute my pain into purpose.

Now feels like the perfect time to share an article I wrote for Over The Moon Magazine on “Why Ascension is the New Black.”

Sounds super woo right?! It is. And it’s gooooood.

Here’s a snippet:

“The task is not to detach from the human experience but to practice non-attachment, where we are grounded in the human experience (since it’s what we’ve chosen for this lifetime) but not hooked by it. We see beyond it, we experience other worlds, and we know there is so much more to existence than what meets the eye.”

Read the full article here {if you feel so called} and then leave a comment below. I’d love to know what juiciness you have to add to this conversation. And what you see here for yourself.

 

Tons of healing. Loads of love…

On February 15th, we did a soft launch of Inner Glow Circle, the coolest, most dynamic coaching sisterhood I’ve ever seen.

Why is it so amazing? Some of my best friends and forever clients partnered to create a community based solely on what women WANT and NEED.

Inner Glow Circle is a needs-based sisterhood and coach training program for women who want to explore personal development at a higher level. You can get a coach. Become a coach. Lead a Goddess Circle in your own city.

Or if you’re super down for all the goddess love…all of the above.

Here’s all the juicy goodness you get for your investment of $200/month:

  • A different Group Coaching call almost every day…led by our Certified Glow Coaches
  • Access to the GlowBook, a workbook to support your spiritual, financial + creative expansion
  • A free sample session with the Glow Coach we feel will be a powerful match for your needs
  • Access to our private online community where the convo is flowing all day long!

We’ve rounded up a mastermind of 20+ phenomenal coaches to support us in building our sisterhood and supporting YOU.

Stand Up, Sister

December 17, 2014 by

katie-depaola

As we move into 2015, we set new goals, new desires + new dreams. It’s a natural process that we’ve been doing since our grade school teachers asked us for our first New Year’s Resolution. We fantasized that the turning of the calendar would make our hair longer, our nails stronger + our crushes fall head over heels for us.

A new year has always meant a new start. A new beginning.

Simultaneously, we look back over the past year. We see how we’ve grown, shrunk, expanded, fallen and then spread our wings once again.

I told one of my beloved clients today, she’s like an accordion. She gets scared and shrinks and then expands rapidly…music playing — loud and beautiful.

As we set these brave 2015 goals — with plans to expand into the Universe and fulfill our true destinies on this planet — the voice of our resistance, ego, survival mechanism or inner bully (for such a bratty little thing, she sure does get a lot of nicknames!), often gets louder and louder.

So what do we do?! We have to stand for our dreams. We have to own them down to the ground. We have to tell that voice to shoo off once and for all.

Another one of my beautiful clients wrote this blog post and expands on what it means to stand for ourselves and others. Below I share an excerpt, and I advise you to click the link and keep reading. She’s brilliant.

“Since childhood, we have been told by our parents and teachers to stand up for those in need and to defend people who may not be able to defend themselves.  The thing is, as we get older, life becomes a lot more complicated and often times those “bullies” are no longer just on the playground. Those ‘bullies’ now show up as our egos, or that pesky voice that chimes in whenever we get excited about a new idea or plan; that voice that tries to talk us straight out of it.  You know the one I’m talking about, the one that tells you that you aren’t good enough, smart enough or capable enough to have everything you desire in life. Can you stand up to that bully?”

Read Olivia’s full post here.

How are you standing as we turn the page into the new year?

  • For yourself
  • Your dreams
  • Your wellbeing
  • Your finances
  • Your kids
  • Your beloved
  • Your family members
  • Your clients
  • Your business
  • Having. It. All.

Sending angel love to you, sista friend. Email me if you have any questions: katie@katiedepaola.com.
