Power Practice: Ignite Your Divine Spark

Do you want to ignite an intimate relationship with your divine essence and feminine intuition? 

Author Sera Beak says a simple meditative practice can be a powerful tool to ignite a deep connection to our “divine spark” or inner wisdom that will help guide every aspect of our lives including career, relationships, health and spirituality.

Sera says the “divine spark” goes by many names. It is your soul, your essence, your inner goddess/god – the center of your center. The you of you. Your distinct and sovereign divinity that is connected to all that is. The divine spark is your guidance and grace, your deepest knowing, and your toughest truth.

Sera says the divine spark’s love for you is unmatched by anyone or anything in the universe. When you ignite it, you don’t just believe, you know on every level of your being, and in every cell of your body, that you are the one you’ve been looking for. “When you ignite your divine spark … you finally come home.”

On today’s Power Practice recording, Sera leads us through a transformative meditation to ignite our divine intuition, warming us to the essence of ourselves, our intuition, our bodies, Mother Earth, and all that is.

Connecting with Your Soul’s Voice

A wild variety of voices influence us everyday.

How do we know which to listen to as we work to live our truths? Harvard trained scholar Sera Beak joined us for May’s Emerging Women Power Boost to help navigate the jungle, connecting us with the gem of all voices – the Soul.

We’ve all absorbed a myriad of external voices over the years: from our family, our upbringing, our schooling, religion, media, culture, friends, and other entrepreneurs. We’ve also got a chorus of internal voices: our shadow selves, our wounds and fragments, our beliefs and our complexes, like the infamous Inner Critic. There are negative aspects of our ego that like to shame, judge, blame, and compare in dogged pursuit of success and admiration, creating fear and stress. There are even aspects of our more spiritualized ego – which Sera calls a “tricky little sucker” – that can come across holier-than-thou and kick our butts for not being spiritual enough.

In short, there’s a virtual cocktail party of voices inside of most of us, most of the time.

But there is one voice that knows us best of all, says Sera. It’s eternal and infinite, connected to all that is, yet also awesomely unique for each one of us. It’s the root of our inner guidance and grace. It knows us better than any teacher, tradition, coach, therapist, friend, or woman named Sera Beak, Sera says with a mischeivous smile. It knows when and how we can emerge into this world and offer our unique gifts while staying in integrity and in alignment with our inner truth.

That voice is our Soul with a capital S. And it wants to spend more time with us.

The Soul is the wisest and most loving aspect of ourselves. It is often quite subtle, more of a gentle whisper than a “big cosmic light show.” It is there to remind us what we already know. You may feel it poking at you through mundane channels – a song on the radio, a sign on a bus, an overheard snippet of conversation. When we take the time to create the space to connect with our Soul, Sera says, it shows our Soul that we’re ready to listen, allowing us to turn up the volume on those little nudges.

And turn up the volume we did. Sera’s beautiful guided meditation helped us pump more life-force into our bodies and this earth by tuning in to the warmth, expansion, and unconditional love of the distinct divine being that is seeking to incarnate through each one of us.

We asked questions to our Souls, and practiced recognizing the flavor of the reply.

“It feels and sounds familiar,” Sera says, “like Oh yeah. This is me. This is my truth. This is my Soul.” Which is not to say that it will always sound “spiritual.” It has nuance and flavor, showing up as what we need in the moment. “And sometimes we might need a dirty joke,” she laughs. We ended the meditation feeling more grounded, devoted, present, alive, real, and connected to our truest selves.

Try the meditation for yourself (and your Soul) by watching the archive video here. There’s a 30 day free trial if you’re not already a member, so you can join us live for the next Power Boost, too.

sera_beak_video

And just a reminder from Sera: she uses the word “imagine” in the meditation because imagination is an excellent tool for greasing the wheels between our human consciousness and the divine.

But, she says emphatically, this is not make believe. 


We can’t wait to see Sera Beak in her 3rd appearance at Emerging Women Live 2017, October 5-8th in Denver, CO. Alicia Garza (co-founder of Black Lives Matter), Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat Pray Love), Esther Perel (author of Mating in Captivity), and so many more will be there, plus workshops, practices, a fire walk (!), coaching, dancing, connection with amazing women… it’s 4 days you’ll never forget.

Need to take a moment to anchor yourself in the here and now?

In the busy business of our modern world, the answer to that question is almost always a resounding “Yep.”

Power Practice #11 – Manage Your Stress In Any Situation

Erin Olivo Manage Your Stress

Understanding and being able to manage your emotions is one of the most important and most empowering life skills you can develop.

When your distressing emotions aren’t taken care of in a productive way, they can become the root of all of your most common issues—overeating, chronic relationship conflict, money mismanagement, substance abuse, and even, in many cases, poor physical health.

Getting distance and perspective from how we are feeling can be one of the most helpful ways to begin to manage distress and it is the key to shifting into Wise Mind. You can use this practice as an on-the-spot, quick fix whenever you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed out.

Play the Power Practice:

“Sometimes focusing on what is truly going on instead of dwelling on what we think should be is all it takes to transform our emotional experience.”

Erin Olivo, Ph.D., MPH, is a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 18-years experience treating patients. She has been an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medical Psychology at the Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons, since July 2004. She was formerly the Director of the Columbia Integrative Medicine Program.

Dr. Olivo currently maintains a private psychotherapy practice in New York City where she works with adults and teenagers who are dealing with stress, depression, anxiety, unhealthy relationships, chronic illness, self-destructive behavior, addictions, and over-eating.

Dr. Olivo’s treatment approach is solution focused and integrates cognitive behavior therapy and DBT therapy with mind-body strategies such as mindfulness meditation and hypnosis. She teaches her patients how to regulate their emotions, manage stress and anxiety, and achieve a more balanced approach to life that she calls Wise Mind Living.

Did you know that “burnout” is a clinical term, not a slang one?
