Tahleevision: May, oh May

Oh May. You have been my favourite month to date.

You’re usually a good one, being my birth month at all. But this year you pulled all the stops out.

From getting to meet Danielle LaPorte to connecting with kindred spirits; from birthday sales that led to charity donations to another meditones album launch.

May - you’ve been stellar.

And so have all the things I’ve read, seen and heard. Here - let me share them with you.

  • Sara Landeta paints the most delicate images of birds on unfolded pharmaceutical boxes. So beautiful.
  • These slightly more accurate names for yoga poses are hilarious
  • Want to be happier? Of course you do. Science can help. Here’s how
  • A nut bar recipe that’s healthy, tasty AND sustainable? Yes, please
  • CATable promises to get your cat off your laptop and into your desk. *melting*

Love this unexpected rendition of Jolene!

 

OH GOD THE CUTENESS!!! BRING ME A SLOTH IMMEDIATELY! *_*

 

Ephemeral and oh, so beautiful.

The Antidote To Overwhelm

So last week you would have received your free goal setting worksheet. Yes?

So you know that feeling good is the precursor to action. Yes yes?

Excellent.

I know this to be true for sure.

You see - at the beginning of the year, I was supposed to be launching Spectrum - a course to teach amazing trailblazers how to get more resilience to achieve their big bold life vision. It was going to be based on the spectrum of emotions related to the chakras.

It was to be the antidote to overwhelm…

But a month earlier I had gone through a painful break up. At the time, I was about to throw in the towel. Heartbroken and overwhelmed, I didn’t think it was right for me to create Spectrum any more. It seemed completely counterintuitive. I just wanted to fade away.

Instead, my dear brother gave me excellent advice for getting through the tough times.

Focus on what makes you feel good.

So I did.

And I laughed at the irony of really being tested to walk my talk ;)

I used the exact process that I gave you in the goal setting worksheet and did simple, feel-good activities every day.

And guess what one of those activities was?

Writing music.

I have endless energy for music. It’s a life-affirming, time-flying, zone-of-genius rush.

I poured my heart, soul, time and life energy into creating the music for Spectrum.

And it became a lighthouse for me during my healing process. A genuinely sacred feedback loop.

So many of the tracks felt ‘channeled’. Like the music was being written through me.

In January I had the distinct honour and pleasure to lead a small and committed group of women through the Spectrum course.

And now?

I’m making the music from the Spectrum course available in the shop.

There’s 2.5 hours of meditones music in one album.

9 tracks in total. One for each of the seven chakras; one epic integration of all seven chakras; plus a bonus guided visualisation. Each track has been created with heart, integrity and intelligence.

If you’re interested in going on an incredible journey, one that will take you through a Spectrum of emotions; that will help you connect to your body and your chakras; that truly is the antidote to overwhelm…

Then I humbly invite you to take a peek at Spectrum - The Album.

With so much gratitude,

Tahlee

PS - I’m so excited to share this with you, I’ve even got a little sale on for the next week. You’ll get $50 off if you purchase in the next 7 days.

Goal Setting Worksheet

You too can be as happy as this mouse as you reach your goals!

 

Maybe you want to stop scoffing cake after every stressful staff meeting. Maybe you want to do yoga every day. Maybe you want to fulfil that creative dream of starting a blog / business / book.

Whatever your dream, no matter how tiny or daunting, you want to achieve it, yes?

Without all the huff and puff that normally accompanies your accomplishments, yes?

You can.

Feeling good is the precursor to action. <- click to tweet

It’s not new, it’s not revelatory, and it’s not rocket science.

I’m sure you’ve heard it a billion times by lots of other people. In fact Danielle LaPorte wrote a whole book on it (called The Desire Map). Plus, you KNOW in your cells that when you feel good. you do good - naturally.

But how do you maintain that consistency? What are the exact steps you need to take?

Wonder no more.

I’ve created a FREE worksheet for you to create simple steps that will help you achieve your goals, minus the overwhelm.

Download your free worksheet by signing up in the box below.

You’re welcome.

PS - Stay tuned. Next week - a HUGE antidote to overwhelm is coming…

Where Do You Get Your Energy From?

Energy.

Hands up if you want more? (*hand raised*)

You know there’s a tonne of things that impact your energy. Eating the right food, exercise, meditation, play etc etc.

But hands up if you feel daunted at your lack of motivation to get more energy?

Well, you’re in luck. I’m going to share two very simple solutions to getting your mojo and your energy back. You just need to understand where your energy comes from.

1. Your energy comes from other people = extrovert

2. Your energy comes from time alone = introvert

I think most people have a tendency towards both extroversion and introversion in different situations. However, when you understand where your energy comes from, you can use this awareness to your advantage.

When you’re feeling lonely, bored or “I can’t be bothered”

Nothing sucks your energy dry when you’ve got a severe case of ennui.

Now is the time to focus on collective activities and gain more energy from the group. Think dinners with friends; a big picnic outdoors; group classes like CrossFit, Groove, aerobics or Barre.

If you’re an entrepreneur or student who’s been spending too much time working or studying alone - organise a group work / study date. You may not get heaps of work done during the few hours you’re with other people, but the renewed vigour you get from spending time with others will motivate you in the days to come.

When you’re feeling drained, trapped or “I gotta get the hell outta here”

No need for a blown gasket, just breathe.

Now is the need for “alone time” to fill your own cup back up with the energy of solitude. Take a long solo run, swim or walk. Put your headphones on and reconnect with meditones. Turn up your favourite tunes and have a one-person dance party in your lounge room. Grab your favourite book and settle in with a cup of tea.

Clear boundaries is really important during this time so that your friends and family know that you need space. Let them know (as lovingly and politely as possible) that you’re not rejecting them, but off to fill up your self love cup. Make it an intentional disconnection in order to recharge. Call it a Ritual Separation rather than just running screaming for the door.

When you show people that this is how you take care of yourself, you give them permission to do the same for themselves.

For example, on Friday night I had a spectacular time at a Sacred Dance Party. 75 women dancing their pants off gave me such great energy! Now I’ve signed up for a 6 week Groove class in Brisbane because I know I’m craving more time with people to balance the huge time I spend alone working.

Over to you. What activities do you do that bring you energy? Head over to the Facebook page and let me know!

My Big Hearted Weekend

You know you’re at the right conference when the first person you meet (when asked the ubiquitous “So, what do you do?” question) answers “I combine fashion with spirituality to create ethical clothing based on the 7 chakras”.

Oh, I think I’m gonna like it here!!!

The Big Hearted Business (BHB) conference was actually promoted as an (un)conference, and rightly so. There were no suits, no sandwichs and definitely no soul sucking presentations.

Instead, queue morning meditations; group singalongs; yoga piss-takes to Eye of the Tiger; the most delicious nutritious organic vegetarian fare made in a no-waste kitchen by one of Australia’s most radical sustainability entrepreneurs, Joost; and regular dance breaks to - what became the theme of the weekend -  Pharrell’s ‘Happy’.

All topped off with talks from inspiring, whip-smart creatives who are living proof you CAN make good art that changes the world and get paid in the process, thank you very much.

But wait up - my big hearted weekend actually began on Friday morning.

You see, I flew down to Melbourne for the conference on my birthday.

Whilst I was in the air, my birthday Pay What You Can sale began. When I landed in Melbourne, I arrived to a phone overflowing with birthday messages from the most gorgeous friends a girl could ever hope for, an inbox full of meditones orders from my incredible comrades, and a heart fit to burst with gratitude.

Thanks to you guys - I’ve been able to give a joyful donation to the Wesley Hospital as a small token of my appreciation for their superb care of my sister.

So you would think that by the time I hit BHB, my heart would be full.

Brrrp. WRONG.

My expectations were smashed and my capacity for joy soared!

BHB was created as a legacy project by Clare Bowditch. There aren’t enough good adjectives in my lexicon to describe this incredible woman so I’ll simply say this.

Clare Bowditch is a consummate professional with a heart of gold.

She held the attention of a room full of 500 people, yet made it seem like you were just hanging out in her loungeroom. She is quick-witted and bloody funny. And that voice! Oh my, that voice.

But of course, every conference needs a highlight. And mine was meeting Danielle LaPorte.

I’ve been a fan since I discovered her site original site White Hot Truth (now simply Danielle LaPorte) and have been consistently blown away by her innovation, her creativity and her potent delivery of all things business & spirituality. If you haven’t done her Desire Map - you need to get onto that IMMEDIATELY!

As soon as she stood on stage, she commanded the room. Her die-hard fans were glowing like embers and those who hadn’t heard of her before - quickly lit up as soon as she began to speak.

There is something about Danielle’s presence that makes you, not just fall in love with her, but fall in love with yourself too.

The hours flew by and all too soon it was over. But I know it’s just the beginning. I’ve met kindred spirits who I know will be friends forever. I feel supported by Life and by synchronicity.

And the last little proof of that? Was what happened as soon as I touched down again in Brisbane.

Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ started playing over the plane’s radio.

So you see - I’ve got an inferno inside me now. There is so much in me that wants to give give GIVE. And it’s all coming your way comrades!!!

Look out world…
