021: Powerful Reasons to go to your first Women’s Circle!

5 powerful reasons to say “yes’ and attend your first or next Women’s Circle!

When I attended my first Women’s Circle I was new to town, know very few people and I was pregnant. It was a decision that showed me the incredible power of coming together in Circle.

Since that day, Circles have taken me on a personal journey of self-discovery through sisterhood. In answering the call to facilitate Circles, I was responding to something deep and ancient within me.

I have witnessed the transformation that can take place for women in this sacred space; I have deepened my connection with myself, rediscovered my self-worth and ignited my connection with spirit. My wish is for all women to experience this for themselves (whether it be in person or on line).

Next time you’re given the opportunity to be part of a Women’s Circle say YES:

– It is a safe Sacred Space

Joining a Women’s Circle is entering a Sacred Space.

You will be seen, heard and accepted just as you are.

You will be invited to share yourself with the women in the group.

Your truth will be met with love and received without judgment.

This is a time when we have become accustomed to dimming our light, trying to fit in and keeping quiet. It is incredibly affirming to share who you are and be held with love.

– What is personal is universal

You will see yourself reflected back time and again as you listen to women sharing their stories, their journeys and their experiences . As each women shares, she helps another woman to take a step closer to wholeness. In Circle we begin to understand that we were never alone. You will be filled with hope and inspiration to face your own fears and challenges as you listen to other women share their scars.

Sisterhood is more than friendship

The experience of a sisterhood is deeper and broader than friendship. You may meet incredible women who become life long soul sisters, or you may not. What you will experience in a Women’s Circle, is a deep connection with kindred spirits. A connection that is not reliant on shared interests or backgrounds or choices! You will share a soul level connection and get a glimpse of the spiritual truth that all is one.

– How might your life be different if you say “yes”?

I believe that if you take the leap and attend your first Women’s Circle, it won’t be your last! But, even if you only attend one Women’s Circle in your life, you will learn something about yourself. You will learn about your place in the world, what is possible for you, how aligned you feel with your purpose. You will learn what it is to be fully accepted just as you are in that moment. A Women’s Circle has the capacity to change your life in subtle but powerful ways. You will also be inspired to incorporate self-loving practices and rituals into your life.

– It’s FUN!

A Women’s Circle can sound very serious, after all they are sacred. In my experience they are incredibly fun too. There may be tears of surrender and release, but also of joy, laughter, moments of pure magic and moments of  blissful connection. Spontaneous fun is sparked when women gather together with open hearts and minds.

So, how are you feeling? Ready to give it a whirl and dip your toe into a Women’s Circle? If you’re a little nervous, please know that you will be welcomed with love and honoured for who you are.

Here are my tips for attending a Women’s Circle:

– come with an open heart and an open mind and let go of any expectations
– set your intention to be fully present during the Women’s Circle. And if you’re attending on-line, don’t multi-task, this is your sacred time!
– be brave and share (you don’t have to bare your soul but share something of yourself)
– enjoy yourself!
– take time after the Women’s Circle to journal on your experience and anything that came up for you

Please let me know if you go to your first Women’s Circle. I would love to hear about your experience. Please leave a comment below or feel free to email me at mitle@mitlesouthey.com.

I honour your journey and I bow to your courage.

018 From health crisis to a passion for primal and a purpose-driven business with Helen Marshall

Episode 18 with the fabulous Helen Marshall – in her words: a forty something year old mother of two living in on the South Coast of Western Australia. At age 38 she had a health crisis. She had digestive, hormonal and sleep problems. Everything was utterly overwhelming – even the laundry. Her mood was default ‘life is hard’ and she felt depressed and anxious. Naturally this crisis affected her life – she was a ‘shouty’ Mummy, a ragged libido-less house wife and she couldn’t cope with much more than the daily grind.

Listen on to find out:

  • What it means to Helen to be a woman in the current time and why she loves tech.
  • How the world is getting turned on it’s head as women are learning to put themselves first.
  • How to get past being a tired, depressed, low energy, shouty mum who doesn’t know what to cook for dinner.
  • Her journey to being a go-to source of knowledge on feeling good and how to feed your family on a primal journey.
  • How to follow your passion to become seen as an expert in your field.
  • The best ideas come from the Universe.
  • Realising your full potential and having the balls to do it
  • The Primal Alternative license
  • Building a sisterhood
  • Competition is so 90’s
  • If you are going to start your own business – any shit you have is going to come up!
  • Realise your potential. It’s a journey. Being present in everything I do.

017 Purpose, Alignment, Soul Astrology with Yelena Kostyguova

This chat with Yelena was so juicy I had to make it a 2 part podcast.

If you haven’t already, I highly recommend going back and listening to Episode 16 in which Yelena shares

Her personal story from Russia to New Zealand
How her intuition took her right to where she needed to be and
How to deal with resistance

In this episode we launch into how Yelena serves women by

Taking them from burn-out to a space of divine reality.
Supporting them to retrain their consciousness to be able to sit in that space of divine reality for longer and longer periods of time
Facilitating a shift in illumination and shift in consciousness which creates a ladder for them to go higher in their perspective, enabling them to shift overwhelm and procrastination, and
Getting them into alignment and in their power place.

Yelena shares:

The simple and profound tool she uses to re-orient people and combat resistance and going round in circles
How to stop being attached to our small and painful ideas that are holding us back from living and working in our divine purpose
Her journey with Soul Astrology and learning how to use the shadow side of the traits of each sign to achieve the purpose of your soul
Her Flower Essence journey and how it helped her in way that was completely beyond her expectations and how she develops a person’s flower essence blend from their Ast

rology chart. (I have a blend from Yelena and I call it my magic potion – because it is magic!).

Yelena also explains

Where we are as a collective and how that affects our personal process in regards to our Soul Journey and the evolution of the Soul
How we can start the journey – letting go of the idea that we can just turn on a switch and start evolving
