When the pressure’s on and the stakes are high, it’s easy for us to steer our lives based on facts and cognitive analysis. We’ve all been trained to measure ourselves and make choices based on more masculine markers of success, so it often feels like the safe bet.
But in order to create a new paradigm for business and life, we individually have to really trust the feminine side of making decisions as well. I’m not suggesting we throw out reason, but do we have to make choices based only on that? If we keep relying solely on masculine constructs to validate us, we will never get out of this current cycle.
I believe we haven’t even begun to tap into the wisdom and power that rests with our intuition because we so often over-emphasize the mind. But just because it’s not cognitive doesn’t mean it’s not reliable. When we start believing the guidance within, we build confidence and a positive self-regard for our abilities in any domain.
How can we let go and trust in the messages that we get through other sources that speak to us? Can we honor our own body, our own emotions, and our soul resonance with the things that we face every day? And what is the cost if we don’t?
Let’s talk about how we can take small practice steps to grow our trust in intuition, and how to check in along the way to develop consistent and reliable communication with our wise-ones within.
Emerging Women was launched in order to support the integration of business and feminine power to make a positive impact on the world. As a world traveller and Peace Corps volunteer, Chantal Pierrat witnessed first-hand the severe oppression and disempowerment of women that is present in most third-world countries across the globe. And as a sales and marketing executive in medical technology and manufacturing, she experienced the challenges and difficulties modern women face in the first-world business arena. Though the environments were quite different, the effects on women were similar: work more, get rewarded less, and feel insecure as we try to fit into a world created by and for men.
After 11 years as a publishing executive in the area of personal growth, holistic living and spirituality, Chantal combined her passion for women’s leadership, inner transformation, and making the world a better place by launching Emerging Women with the first-annual event in October 2013. Since then, speakers such as Arianna Huffington, Dr. Brené Brown, Dr. Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Dr. Tererai Trent, Kristin Neff, PhD, Esther Perel, Kelly McGonigal, PhD, Zainab Salbi, Reshma Saujani, Anne Lamott, and others women from businesses in all industries have come together to discuss the issues facing women entrepreneurs and leaders today.
Facilitated by Emerging Women’s founder, Chantal Pierrat, a Circle Up is a live virtual event that explores leadership and feminine power themes each month. Participants are guided to share deeply and support their circle sisters in stepping fully and courageously into living their truth.
