Quotes from the show:

On reinvention: “If you’re using intention and if you’re really following your guidance– your intuition– it doesn’t feel like reinvention at the time. Half the time it feels like total chaos. Am I reinventing myself or is everything falling apart here? But you have to keep following that calling and going through open doors.” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast

“Clarity is overrated.” –Chantal Pierrat Emerging Women Podcast

“Being clear on what you know about yourself and where your delights are is one thing. But I think we have this mistaken view of clarity as I know exactly how this is going to end… for most of us, we’re just winging it.” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast

“I was so in tuned with what everyone else thought of me that it was hard for me to even acknowledge how unhappy I was in [my corporate job].” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast

“A lot of us are really scared to look at that divine messaging, the divine connection, because it may take us in a more uncomfortable direction. And looking deep within is uncomfortable.” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast

“For three years, people thought I was a complete and utter loser, and I had to walk through that fire… nobody could see the growth that was going on.” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast

“We learn intuition by doing things” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast

“Our power is everywhere. We think it’s this Wonder Woman sort of a vibe, and it’s not. It is so subtle, and it requires this real relentless honesty with ourselves about why we’re doing what we’re doing.” –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast

“We have this addiction in our world that every decision has to be the right decision.”  –Christine Kane Emerging Women Podcast
