Human - Upheld

Human - Upheld

The Japanese Kanji for 'person/human' looks like a figure running free.

But NO - don't be fooled. 

These are TWO strokes signifying ONE upholding the OTHER.

We do not stand alone. You have not done ONE thing alone, essentially. There is a small army of others upholding you at every moment of your life, giving you birth, growing your food, bringing you light.

There is a strong tendency towards narcissism in this day & age. Web 2.0 breeds our desire to stand unique, purely self-reliant, a self-admiring lull. Keep an eye. It's tempting as we find our voice and freedom.

In 'The Cult of the Amateur', the author notes how the internet can turn out like this: ignorance meets egoism meets bad taste meets mob rule. Stay clear. Stay REAL - a human upheld & upholding others.

HOW to think like LEONARDO da VINCI

How to think like Leonardo Da Vinci - A Book Synopsis for YOU

What if you could have a mentor that is an absolute ICON & a world-renoun GENIUS.

In working with you, he would ENCODE you with magic & ignite YOUR OWN INNATE GENIUS.

Would you sign up for such a life-altering activation?

AND how much would you be willing to invest to work with this MASTER?

A LOT, I would, A LOT!

Let me make it come ALIVE! for you.

In writing “How to think like Leonardo Da Vinci”, Michael Gelb sets out to activate OUR GENIUS... with Leonardo Da Vinci as OUR MENTOR!!!

WHOAH!

Leonardo Da Vnci

Leonardo da Vinci, OUR MENTOR ahem!, was not only the leading visual artist of his time, but he was also an inventor, an engineer, a musician, a scientist, an incredible entertainer & athlete. Talk about MULTI-PASSIONATE. My kind of guy!

For in truth, great love is born of great knowledge of the thing loved.” - da Vinci

Yep, he was a master that loved all things he did. Once again, my kind of guy.

Beyond all his stellar achievements, Leonardo da Vinci serves as a global archetype of human potential, giving us intimations of what we ourselves may be capable of doing.” - Gelb

Yes! He is what WE ALL CAN become, in time and through specific persistence.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE?

Michael Gelb takes us on a wild date. He dives deep into the most potent 7 attributes of Da Vinci’s GENIUS and sets it as ultimately OUR OWN! (tear drop)

1. Curiosità - Curiosity! REMAIN CURIOUS all your life, my love. I beg you.

As children, we were naturally curious, but as we grow up much of our inquisitiveness ebbs.

“Almost all children in their natural state ask lots of questions. That’s how they learn so much in the first five years of life. But then we send them to school where they learn that answers are more important than questions,” - Gelb

The genius maintains an insatiable curiosity life, a relentless pursuit to learning and evolving, going further and beyond.

“The desire to know is natural to good men.” - da Vinci

Be open, be curious, be mad desirous!!!

2. Dimonstratzione - OBSERVE & EXPERIENCE the world within you and outside, take a magnifing lens if you have to!

Da Vinci always used observation & experience as basis of his creative & scientific work. He did NOT follow dogma. This is what it takes to move into the Genius. It’s a relentless persistence to see ‘for yourself’ and a keen willingness to learn from our own wins & mistakes. An open Fearlessness.

Make sure to remain this way, however, even into the wise senior years. Do not settle with the knowledge you have at any stage of the game. The Becoming is a never-ending process.

So the more senior you become, the more concerted effort you must make to seek out different opinions. Then you have a chance to think independently” - Gelb

Keep evolving. Keep in the momentum. Do not RUST!

3. Sensazione - Senses & Sensations. Feel into them! Bathe in them!

A continual refinement of focus & attention. Seeing, listening, feeling, being present and aware. Meditation, focus, awareness are all key key in refinement of what we catch from life around us and fro within us for creation.

“The Italians have la dolce vita, the sweet soulful life. The French have joie de vivre, the joy of living and in the States all we have is happy hour,” - Gelb

Get LIT UP! by your senses. Shake it up! Come ON! Yallah!

4. Sfumato - This literally means ‘up in smoke’! pffff

This points to the ability to embrace uncertainty & ambiguity. To be confident & focused even in the midst of paradox. Creativity occurs simply in the unknown.

“When you suspend the old thing the new thing doesn’t always automatically emerge. There’s a big gap and the more you’re able to embrace that gap of knowing and uncertainty the greater the likelihood that you’ll be really creative.”

You have to be able to be comfortable here, in the unbearable GAP of ‘not knowing’. In order to innovate, to move, to conquer mediocrity. The movement will not happen in the ‘same old’ states.

5. Arte & Sciencia - les arts & les sciences, the WHOLE PACKAGE is key.

Always keep integrating logic & imagination, science & art, right-brain & left brain . We want a whole brain thinking model. When you access these states, you wake areas of your brain that have been dormant since childhood.

Gelb recommends we practice mind-mapping for ANY ideas that we are developing.

“Mind mapping is a whole-brain method for generating and organizing ideas, originated by Tony Buzan, and largely inspired by Da Vinci’s approach to note taking. You can use mind mapping for personal goal setting, daily planning, and interpersonal problem solving. It can help you at work, with your kids, or with any pursuit. The most marvelous application of mind mapping, however, is that through regular practice it trains you to be a more balanced thinker, à la Leonardo.” - Gelb

Mind-mapping is a powerfully activating approach to creation. Our minds aren’t ordered linearly, they are multi-dimensional, so craft your brainstorms in 2-3D mindmaps.

6. Corporalita - To innovate you need a body that WORKS!

Da Vinci was well known as the strongest man in Florence. He was an accomplished athlete, fencer, and a horseman. Cultivate not only strength & fitness, but also grace & ambidexterity for creative flow.

“We think of creativity as an intellectual exercise but it requires tremendous energy. Learning to cultivate your life force, your life energy is a very important part of this,” - Gelb

Design a body that FEELS passion. A body that works.

7. Connessione - See the patterns in life & recognize their SIGNIFICANCE!

Our genius employs systems thinking. Cultivate a wide appreciation for the interconnectedness of all things in the universe & knowledge. Once again Gelb recommends mind-mapping for development of this thinking & feeling style.

The past, the present & the future are all like a perfectly patterned mandala. CHAOS just needs your light. Cultivate it.

Done ! 7 Steps to GENIUS, under the guidance of LEONARDO. (sigh)

Love love love him! Definitely a Crush ;-)

I always admired his work, but now I have him encoded into my DNA, thanks to Michael Gelb.

LEONARDO was just like us!

He used AFFIRMATIONS!

“Although he experienced self-doubt and questioned the value of his efforts, he never gave up. Leonardo’s courage and persistence in the face of adversity are tremendously inspiring. He strengthened his will to continue his work through affirmations that he wrote in his notebook, such as:

‘I do not depart from my furrow.’, ‘Obstacles do not bend me.’, ‘Every obstacle is destroyed through rigor.’ ‘I shall continue.’, ‘I never tire of being useful.’

And he JOURNALED!

“Leonardo da Vinci carried a notebook with him at all times so that he could jot down ideas, impressions, and observations as they occurred. His notebooks (seven thousand pages exist; most scholars estimate this is about one half of the amount he left to Francesco Melzi in his will) contained jokes and fables, the observations and thoughts of scholars he admired, personal financial records, letters, reflections on domestic problems, philosophical musings and prophecies, plans for inventions, and treatises on anatomy, botany, geology, flight, water, and painting.”

In the end, Michael takes us through a powerful journalling exercise that may potentially change your life! READY!

100 QUESTIONS

Time to ask your most burning 100 questions - You have 60 mins!

“Great minds ask great questions. The questions that ‘engage our thought’ on a daily basis reflect our life purpose and influence the quality of our lives. By cultivating a Da Vinci-like open, questing frame of mind, we broaden our universe and improve our ability to travel through it.” - Gelb

Give yourself - 60 minutes.

Find a comfortable place where you won’t be distracted.

Sit down and make a list of 100 questions you find most significant for you, the most interesting ones. Questions can range from “Why is the ocean blue?” and “How can I live long?” to “What are am I really good at?” and “What am I most crazy about?” and whatever comes through your heart & soul.

Push through the fears & the desire to walk away and finish the list all in one session.

Then read through your 100-Q list and identify the THEMES that emerge. Just identify them, no judgement. Are your questions about Meaning of Life? Love? Business? Growth? Money?

TOP 10 QUESTIONS - you have 15 mins!

Review your list of 100 questions and pick out the 10 that you find most SIGNIFICANT. Then rank them in importance from 1 - 10. All in 15 mins!

Now you have a REALLY good sense of what’s really key for you. Straight up YOU!!!

POST YOUR TOP 10 in the group DESIGN for SIGNIFICANCE, IMPACT & BLISS or here below! Please share, I will personally support you!

 

Aligned Life is the true medicine.

The month of March was truly revolutionary for my life & my business.
It was one of those super concentrated, illuminating months
that will go down in history for me.

These kind of times are crucial for us.
Refinement, espresso-style.
Concentrated, pivotal.

I attended 3 conferences and a 3 live-stream seminars that really brough a laser focus to my work and to my service in the world.

I had powerful convos with many clients that are seeing a significant shift in the way they DO business, in the way they design their everyday lives, in the way they treat their time, their energy and their body.
There is a NEW way to do business and it is highly conscious & expansive.

I treated patients in clinic that are looking for more than medicine, more than high-dose nutrient cocktails & hormones. Life & their work is at the crux of most ailments and medicine is essentially about powerful and inspired life design.

I am seeing a true bridge between the cutting-edge regenerative medicine I have been doing in clinic for years, the executive coaching I have done in the corporate sector AND the now well-refined high-level mentorship I am doing with incredible entrepreneurial women globally.

Who is it that I am truly lit up working with?
high-achieving entrepreneurial women

Why?
We are bold yet gentle, 
brave yet vulnerable, 
confident yet humble, 
focused yet open, 
intelligent yet evolving, 
relentless yet flexible, 
straight-up yet deep loving.
Just my kind of gals, no question. 
Powerful yet so deeply caring.

I am totally magnetized by this bold endeavor called entrepreneurship.
It is the bravest, the scariest thing to face, designing your
SOUL-powered work.
It is like meeting your twin flame. 
Your mirror. 
Looking into it, you see ALL of you. 
The good, the bad and the ugly.
And you must keep loving.
You face it, full on
head on, bravely
and you go deeper
no other way.

The woman we become in the process is extraordinary.
Refined, significant, impactful.
Stunning.
Kind.

ALIGNED LIFE is the true medicine!

If this resonates with you, join me in the private FB group
DESIGN for SIGNIFICANCE, IMPACT & BLISS
I am holding discovery sessions in April! Join me on the phone! 

WHY I do what I do

We are in this together!
Designing a business that lines up with our soul-sourced purpose
is NO walk in the park.

But hey, we will all admit, it is a highly elevating journey!
The swings are all lined up for us.

The Women I speak to express many challenges
- the overwhelm
- the spinning
- the daily lapses in focus
- managing it ALL, on call to life 24/7
- their desperate need to preserve & regain their energy
- not feeling great physically, which directly affects their mindset
- a whole spectrum of fears, oh so many fears get unearthed
- sometimes surprising inadequacies, lapses in self-belief, not feeling worthy, not deserving, inadequate, feeling forsaken at times

The women I speak to want
- crisp clear clarity
- ignition into action, an activation that is reproducible
- results results results
- ease ease ease
- real time expansion
- a sense of significance, an impact that matters
- they want to create ALIGNED money, to be financially free in a way that really matters, that serves life deeply and that lights them up
- they ALL want a business that fits harmoniously into their desired life
- and they ALL want to feel amazing, once and for all, NOW.

WE are ALL one and the same woman. 
So humbling. So reassuring.

That is WHY I do what I do.

Nothing moves me, elevates me, lights me up more than to help women come to a place of perfect alignment and experience REAL success in their lives & in their financial freedom!

A woman's true success is deeply significant and so healthy for her & for the world.

I would love to hear, what are some of the challenges for you as you design for your aligned life?

Feel free to book in for a 30 min session with me in April, in which we will unearth together the one main challenge affecting your confidence, momentum and success. https://blissdesignedsession.acuityscheduling.com/

NEW ARCHITECTURE

Untitled design-2.png

Burnout is totally normal.

The adrenals, the thyroid, the sex hormones, the metabolism overall is not designed for ongoing stress.
Overt stress OR subconscious/SOUL stress: the nervous system does not care. Same.
If it's long... you burnout.

We evolved as hunters and gatherers for tens of thousands of years. 

Your nervous system is designed to protect you. If it senses that on a conscious or subconscious level you feel

1. unsafe

2. you are losing control over your destiny or environment

3. you have no tribe that has your back

Your physiology will go into overt or chronic flight & fight mode. Over time, you burnout the fuel. 

Basic biochemistry. Very normal.

And over years, especially after the 30s, this will show up as a cumulative effect of hormone depletion. A biochemical mess.

Hormones take years to reset properly.

This is why the medicine is baked into my programs, 

only if it needs to be, only where relevant of course.

ALL the incredible work we do must not be undermined by the cumulative effects of your past physiology and burnouts.

Sometimes clients write to me just for the hormones, and I do have a 'hidden' program called 

hormonesDesigned 

that I offer to a very select few women, who already have coaches and just need the hormone/burnout piece sorted out. 

LMK if you are interested to know about this particular 'secret' program. I will send you a link. Msg me.

In the end, 

we live in this VESSEL and the vessel is run by hormones. 

By our metabolic & energetic design.

For this NEW LIFE you are designing, you also need to have NEW ARCHITECTURE, babe...

How are your hormones treating you? Do you have any questions? Msg me here.

Your Everyday Wilderness

REGENERATIVE SATURDAYS! 

On saturdays, I cover the blissDesigned medicine side of things. 
Today we dive into the WILDERNESS.

Thematically, as entrepreneurs, we face a kind of 'wild' everyday.
An awe-inspiring, gruelling terrain. Day in, day out.

What does the ACTUAL wilderness have to do with us?
Lots.
Bear with me ('xcuse the pun).

I love the wild as much as I love intelligent luxe. Equally.
This weekend, I am attending the National Conference in Wilderness Medicine.
Medical colleagues from all over the world are here tackling the fascinating topic of wilderness rescue.
Anything from surviving the unexpected night out, to K2-style altitude rescue, to shark attacks, to snake envenomation, to global warming and how that will affect our health and survival. Astonishing topics.
This is no run-of-the-mill medicine.

Now what is striking me MOST out of all the topics is the utmost crucial place of the MINDSET
and the ADRENALS
to our survival.
You've got those two on board and you can move mountains!

When you find yourself in a sudden survival situation in life, like in the wild, there is a sudden tunnel perspective that comes on. Your nervous system goes into flight & fight, your adrenals flood you with survival hormones and you are in a highly challenged yet focused cognitive and emotional state.

You are suddenly ONE with mortality.

I've been there not long ago, in the midst of the ocean trying to save my 9-year old son as he was being pulled out by a strong current to sea into giant 12 ft waves. 
I cannot describe the sudden focus and power that came out of me. What I remember is a focused tunnel vision, a high energy like no other... followed drastically by an exhaustion like never before. I did not have the physical power to pull it off. 
Oh thank GOD, a few brave folks saved us both. But I was broken about it, I was so deeply humbled. 
I understood how we can lose our lives so swiftly in the ocean... the energy drain is FAST if our adrenals do not have the power, the resources. 
Mine were burned out already. Could have been tragic. Such deep gratitude for the rescue. A real wake up call.

The ADRENAL glands are our rechargeable batteries. They must be powered up DAILY. 
Supporting these glands is primary in any challenged state in life. Burn out is basically 'adrenal' burnout. The glands do not have the reserves to sustain you. 
Entrepreneurs should ALL know their adrenal status and support these glands religiously with high-potency nutrients and lifestyle, daily.
Adrenal assessment is in my hormones testing kit, period.

MINDSET is the other face of the coin.
In the wild. You may be in an expedition of 20 folks, but when it comes to ultimate survival, you feel deep inside ALONE. 
It's that tunnel vision, the flight & fight that creates this separation.
In the end, your nervous system is only capable of saving you!
It's actually your SOUL that can save the entire crew.

The case is not that different as you are building your soul-sourced business in the world. You are thrown into the wild, solo with your vision, solo with your power to create & survive. You must save yourSELF yet find the SOUL to be of true service to others.

ALONENESS is not robust enough. The MINDSET that saves the day has much wider parameters. 
An indestructible trust in ourselves is matched equally by an indestructible trust in LIFE and the UNIVERSE. 
THAT is the foundation of wilderness survival.

Powerful journey, a kind of freshness, awe-inspiring.
This pivotal MINDSET
and charged up ADRENALS
save the day,
everyday.
In the wild and in business & life.

What do you think?

MASTERY, a book précis

MASTERY

An indestructible trust in yourself, that's what's going to keep you above water as the sweet storms of life come and go. I take this kind of trust, this kind of evolved love, this powerful benevolent self-efficacy very seriously! I work diligently with my clients to set THIS HIGHER TRUST into their BONES!

Building MASTERY is a key piece of this pivotal trust. Mastery, that higher meta-knowledge, that relentlessly refined skill.

No book explores this area more thoroughly than MASTERY by Robert Greene. Here are some of the KEY GEMS from the book.

TRANSFORMATION

Leonardo Da Vinci tells us that we must master ourselves first and foremost.

“You cannot make anything worthwhile in this world unless you have first developed and transformed yourself. The first move toward mastery is always inward— learning who you really are and reconnecting with that innate force” -Greene

Knowing yourself deeply is the foundation of this benevolent deepening journey. You must dig into the essence of our unique calling, your “life’s task”. Without this introspective intelligence, you will be battling and you may fall real hard. Ouch.

Entrepreneurial women know ALL about this. Finding our soul-sourced, divinely inspired voice, listening to it with love every day is what we DO! Unearthing the subconscious, transmuting limiting beliefs is step ONE.

Greene comforts us that initial spinning and impatience of the early days will gradually settle into focus & discipline. By the end of this transformative phase of MASTERY, you will find yourself in a new powerful & settled reality.

COURSE-CORRECTING

This journey is NOT straight, it is all about well-informed trial and error, twists and turns. As you go deeper and wider into your work, you will begin for feel the flaws in the design and you will begin an intelligent & wisdom-guided, soul-powered process of course correction.

"What you are trying to create will not magically take off after a few creative bursts of inspiration, but must be slowly evolved through a step-by-step process as you correct the flaws. In the end, you win through superior craftsmanship, not marketing. The craftsmanship involves creating something with an elegant, simple structure —a high form of creativity.” - Greene

Bham!

An ode to the creative process!

TIME

“The road to mastery requires patience. You will have to keep your focus on five or ten years down the road, when you will reap the rewards of your efforts... In the end, the money and success that truly last come not to those who focus on such things as goals, but rather to those who focus on mastery and fulfilling their Life’s Task.” - Greene

Feel into it, it takes 10,000-20,000 hours to build expertise in a field. That’s what it takes!

How do you feel about that?

Are you intimidated or are you inspired!

Greene recommends INSPIRATION! Get excited!

With tenacity & passion, anyone can become a master! All you have to do is set your priorities for it. Design chunks of DEEP WORK in the day! And it’s DONE!

In the end, the significance of it will bring unmatched deep satisfaction, well-designed Bliss!

DESTINY

“Like Proust, you must also maintain a sense of destiny, and feel continuously connected to it. You are unique, and there is a purpose to your uniqueness. " - Greene

In order to master a field and see success, you’ve got to love, no sorry, ADORE! what you are diving into, you must feel a PROFOUND CONNECTION with it. The path is not straight or easy, but it is a luscious labor of quiet ecstacy. As you persist and keep your finger on the pulse, the mastery will be magnetized to you.

“You must understand the following: In order to master a field, you must love the subject and feel a profound connection to it. Your interest must transcend the field itself and border on the religious.” - Greene

Pay divine reverence to your masterpiece. Reframe all challenges as SEEDS, as messengers on the journey. Nothing can sway you off this course!

TENACITY Meets INTENSITY

You must be relentless, passionate, obsessive about all this.

The emotional intensity and the characters tenacity are FUEL to you mastery.

Be MAD about every part of the journey. Almost an evangelical stance on your craft, it's what it takes.

"Supreme Tenacity" is the name of the game, according to Greene.

DESIRES

“Mastery is not a question of genetics or luck, but of following your natural inclinations and the deep desire that stirs you from within. Everyone has such inclinations. This desire within you is not motivated by egotism or sheer ambition for power, both of which are emotions that get in the way of mastery. It is instead a deep expression of something natural, something that marked you at birth as unique" - Greene

Following your bliss, your true desire is actually HIGHLY benevolent. It is a service to the world. We have an inherent pull to self-actualize. If we do not follow it, we will suffer and the society around us will suffer from our anger & frustration.

"In following your inclinations and moving toward mastery, you make a great contribution to society, enriching it with discoveries and insights, and making the most of the diversity in nature and among human society. It is in fact the height of selfishness to merely consume what others create and to retreat into a shell of limited goals and immediate pleasures. Alienating yourself from your inclinations can only lead to pain and disappointment in the long run, and a sense that you have wasted something unique. This pain will be expressed in bitterness and envy, and you will not recognize the true source of your depression.” -Greene

MASTERY is so worth of our devotion.

Now, if I told you that you were going to life to beyond 150 years old, how would this accelerate your dedication to mastery. Radical Life Extension is totally probable, given gene therapy ahead. We will be living beyond 150, 200... What do you want to master for such a LONG lifetime?

For me it’s the profession, the mentorship, the medicine, the writing, the poetry, the tango, the freediving, the soul-sourced love.

What is it for you?

Let’s get ignited! Get excited for it! Mastery, so worth the deep dive, the perseverance.

Hormones

REGENERATIVE SATURDAYS are here! 

On saturdays, I share my expertise in anti-aging & regenerative medicine. 
I am a doctor turned high-level mentor, out of soul-sourced necessity.
Many of you know my story already. 
If not msg me and I am happy to personally share it with you. 

The unique expertise I hold in cutting-edge medicine should never go to waste. 
I KNOW what I offer is so needed for my women. 
I tailor-in the medicine in a relevant & sophisticated fashion into ALL my programs.

TODAY! Let's talk hormone testing.

Your hormones make or break your mindset, your manifestation & your success. We ALL know this intuitively. 

From April, all my One-One Private Coaching clients will be receiving a hormone testing kit, a $450 test complimentary! it's a done deal!

It's relatively useless to spend precious soul time on teasing out your mindset blocks, if the hormones are OFF. 
We keep spinning our wheels.

The regular blood tests or salivary tests you get at your doctor's office are not informative enough. They merely hint at what is going on physiologically, but these DO NOT tell us the precise story.

With my patients & clients, I use Serial Urine Testing ONLY. 
No use to waste time or precious money on any other testing. 
Truly.

What you want to know is your free cortisol pattern, cortisol metabolites, estrogen metabolites, androgen metabolites, basic hormones and overnight melatonin. 
From there, you can begin
to reset  
to get your mindset
SET
for success.

For your inherent significance, for your impact, for your bliss.

Straight-up love!

E-mail me at info(at)blissdesigned.com if you would like to know more about the programs. 🐚 I am here for us!

Your story, tell it

Just a few years ago, I was taking on EVERYTHING. Working as a high-level executive coach for Fortune 500 companies, the CEO and doctor of a successful integrative medical practice, chief everything officer & the sole breadwinner of a family. I was literally on call to life 24/7.

I don't even know how I came to carry ALL the load of living. I grew up as an intelligent yet very dreamy child. My family moved many countries as I grew up, yet uprooting never phased me. I felt free and light wherever I went. I traveled, studied and worked in many countries worldwide before I settled into a marriage at 32. I loved living adventurously, beautifully. The world was my oyster!

And then life LIFED me. I became responsible for every operation of every minute of a family life. Everything somehow insidiously fell on me. Finances, Bills, Mortgages, Loans, Professional life, Children, Foreign Visas, Decisions. ALL the decisions. ALL was all on me. All a whirl-wind... life was seriously living me by 39.

The turning point came when I moved my family to Hawaii. By this time, I had already been through hell & back. Hawaii was my saving grace. My desire for lightness of being was finally manifesting. I was going to get to LIVE ME again.

It took superhuman effort and a lot of finances for me to organize a very rare US E2 business visa. They do not make it effortless, even for Canadians. But OK! This was worth it! I was going 'home'. I pulled it all together strong, while working full-time, double-time and being CEO of Everything. By the time the D-day came and we gloriously landed in Hawaii, I was already spinning and worn out.

If any of you know what the Big Island of Hawaii stands for, you will know that the pressure did NOT let up in paradise. Nope.

This spiritually powerful volcanic island burns the ego hard. The Goddesses of this island will NOT let you live on automatic pilot. Nope. Here, on this island, you face YOU head on and you FALL hard before you get up. It is known that most people last living here one year, generally. And leave. This place in no regular paradise.

They also say that it is hardest place on the planet to build a business. But I was determined. I knew the value & the gifts I have. I believed in the benevolence & beauty of my work. I went ahead to build a successful business, all while doing complex & cognitively demanding medicine AND working full-time as a high-level executive coach. But I was still living by the old design and the Gods knew it.

And then life LIFED ME HARD.

...the fully story... still shaping up, here www.blissdesigned.com/about

The HEART: Are you living YOU?

THE HEART

Did you know that 1/2 of people who have had heart attacks have very normal cholesterol levels. That is 50%. Half. Completely NORMAL levels. 

High cholesterol itself DOES NOT cause a heart attack. 

Labs-wise, cholesterol panel is not in itself interesting.

The LABS that are MUCH MORE insightful are the following: 
Cholesterol Fractionation
Homocysteine

In addition, a quality Chinese Medicine Diagnosis is highly insightful.

Cardiovascular disease shows up as a few brilliantly described patterns of energetic imbalance:
Heart Yang Deficiency with Coldness
Spleen Qi Deficiency with Phlegm
Heart Yang Deficiency with Coldness
Liver Qi Stagnation with Blood Stasis

These terms may sound esoteric, but they are actually really SOUND. 
We are bio-energetic beings not physiological merely. 
Energy RUNS the SHOW. 
Chinese Medicine is the MASTER FIELD of Energetic Diagnosis.

Mind-Body connection must also be uncovered.
Stress patterns & subconscious limiting belief patterns that block you from authentic living increase your sympathetic metabolism, rage inflammation in the body & corrode you. 

THOUGHTS & HEART COHERENCE are key factors in whether your circulation functions or stagnates or gets blocked.

Ask yourself: "Am I living the TRUE me?"

Are you in harmony, in coherence, in deep serenity with
all you DO
how you THINK
how you FEEL

Are you LIVING your life, or is life living YOU.

Answer these & you will know whether your circulation FLOWS or is in stasis.

I wrote this on a regenerative saturday. On saturdays, I cover the medicine side of blissDesigned, a benevolent kind of medicine for purpose-driven women like us, doing what we believe in.

I am an ALIGNMENT coach essentially. 
EVERY high-level mentor is!

But
without health, 
without your peace, there is no alignment, there is no YOU, 
there is no business.

Alignment must be set in ALL areas of our lives:
In our soul-sourced work
In our daily lives
In our physical & metaphysical wellness.
ALL are Pivotal.

The 'medicine' is tailored-into my work with my clients
in a very sophisticated & relevant fashion. 
I am an anti-aging & regenerative medicine doc and I can never forgo sharing my expertise with my women. What I know is so powerful and so missing in women's lives, that it must be brought in when needed. No question.

The priority, however, is ALIGNMENT. 
SIGNIFICANCE. 
IMPACT. 
BLISS.
Freedom. Generosity. Love.
All these are THE TRUE MEDICINE!

This came up this weekend at the Metabolic Integrative Cardiology conference I attended in San Francisco. 
3 days of FULL-ON Cardiology, I was dying! 
I am a consciousness buff, no longer a mere physiology passionate... 
Well, I know the physiology SO WELL now that I do not get awe-struck.

But ONE lecture on neurophysiology on heart coherence lit me up. 
And it brought home the true point of cardiology.

Inflammation
Oxidative Stress
Metabolic and Hormonal Breakdown
BREAK
the heart.

And all these physiological tragedies are due to INCOHERENCE.

Fine-Tune

The father of my children builds exquisite guitars & ukuleles.
This is one of them. A Hawaiian MANGO piece.

The craftsmanship it takes to build a custom, high-end, well-sounding instrument is phenomenal. 

NO different than what we are ALL doing here, us, purpose-driven global women, designing lives, businesses for quality & for benevolence.

To produce beautiful sound and move people, the instrument must be FINE-TUNED daily, almost hourly. 

Same with us ladies, self-care is non-negotiable.

Fine-tuning the mindset, the heart and the body to be in ALIGNMENT to the REAL in us is as pivotal as anything else.

Without your PEACE, there is no YOU.
Without you, there is NO business.

In my blissDesigned Mentorship Programs, I help women design their brands & their business powerfully, exquisitely, impactfully WITHOUT losing themselves to the 'work'. 

You are the CEO of your life, not merely of your business.

We set the business, the work, the life's masterpiece into the matrix of a really well-designed life that expands your time & energy. I also make sure, given my medicine expertise, that your body & your health are onboard to fuel your creative design. Your health should NOT be another full-time job. The medicine is tailored in as needed, but it is not the priority. ALIGNMENT is.
This is a framework that is CRUCIAL & indispensable, especially in light of the fact that Radical Life Extension is around the corner medically, and we may be running our soul-sourced businesses into the our 100s, literally. 
Life is LONG, and we are here to LIVE it really well. Fully. Benevolently.

THAT is what I do. So so honored to have the unique expertise & deep deep care to be here for women in this way.

Your Story

'connection' is everything

being raw, vulnerable, open wide
yet tasteful & relevant

this is the balance I am trying to strike this week with refining my story
to tell
WHY I am here in this world, for women worldwide
what do I have to OFFER truly

telling your story is the vital element in your business
I am working on mine this week... for it to be a raw lifeline
from my soul to yours

do you have yours in the bag? 
if so, please link it here, share it with US, let it inspire us

If not, let's get on it! together...

One Life

How would THIS change up 'how' you design your days ahead?
Swiftly.

I personally do not have a clear stance on reincarnation, but what this question asks is
whether you are living THIS lifetime UP TO PAR.
In a way that would be WORTH doing over and over again.

This is a question posed by philosophers for centuries. 

Nietzsche put it this way:

“Live so that you may desire to live again
that is your duty
for in any case you will live again!”

A contemporary NY-based philosopher Catherine Collautt wrote about it extensively in her recent essay 'On Having One Life':

"if we are going to be doing this again, that is all the more reason to make sure it is something good. Something we want to do again – like being fulfilled, instead of yearning for fulfillment. We shouldn’t delude ourselves into passivity and complacency by thinking that because it is another one it will be new, and different, and better. Much better to provoke ourselves with the shocking thought that if it is again – it is again: the same, again."

PROVOKING it is. 
Lights a fire in the belly.

Shall we get to this ladies?
Let me know what this ignites in you.
