Manifesting Our New Home

ac492e05_original

After having a baby in 2014, I was starting to feel like we were outgrowing our cozy 2 bdrm apartment in LA. I was feeling like I wanted us to be in a house with more space and a backyard in a residential neighborhood

I was also thinking about wanting to be closer to my parents so that they could be an active part of my daughter’s life. They lived in Northern CA, which seemed like a costly move and the energy of moving felt overwhelming, especially with a new baby.

When we came to visit my parents for the holidays last year, I was checking out listings online even though we had no official plans to move and saw a cute place not far from them. I came to see it, just to get an idea of what we might be looking for and low and behold this sweet house had our name on it. Needless to say, I saved the number as Our New House in my phone.

There was someone else who was the first candidate and they ended up saying no. We went back and forth about whether we should accept the place and if now was the right time to move. We applied for this place December 31, 2014 and moved the family to the Bay Area on January 28, 2015.

It’s amazing how your mind can have you convinced that something you want is going to take a long time to have. Or that you have to have all your ducks in a row before you can take action. This is something that felt like it would be challenging to create. Yet, life keeps me proving that when I move in the direction of what I want and what is meant for me, things can happen in Godspeed.

What’s something you are telling yourself that you cannot have now and how can you take action towards its manifestation anyway?

Do I Need To Be Certified To Be A Coach?

Do I Need to be Certified to be a Coach?I frequently get asked if you need to get certified to be a coach. Here’s a video that addresses that. Certification offers a lot of training in the skill sets you need to be of optimal service to your clients. In my coaching programs, I cultivated how to deeply listen for what’s being said and what’s not being said, how to ask questions that reveal deeper truths, how resistance works, how to evoke excellence in others and so much more.That being said, many of my colleagues and I struggled to build a viable coaching business even though we had developed these incredible skills that can be applied to all areas of life. Certification does not guarantee that you will build a thriving practice. Some people think that it will give them the confidence to charge and that doesn’t always happen. I’m a big fan of training, growth and learning when it comes to growing your coaching skills and only you know if you need it to be your best. If you are looking for a coaching certification look for one that will give you in depth business training or be prepared to add that to your education.

What’s Slowing You Down From Getting Paying Clients?

Are you a soulful female coach finding it difficult to get your first clients or new clients? I know what that’s like. It can leave you feeling doubtful of your gift, wondering what you are doing wrong and asking yourself is it even possible for you to make a living at this. As a coach, you know that the answers lie in the questions. In this video, I have a guilt free question that I am inviting you to ask yourself and take action on.I was “trained” as a coach for years before getting paid clients. Truthfully, I wasn’t really letting people know that I was available for hire. I hid my gift in a number of clever ways that left me without regular paying clients. I want to encourage you that if God put in your heart to serve in this way don’t give up. It just means you have some inner work to do and new skills to apply to get to the other side.❤️❤️❤️

Want to Get to the Root of Your Client’s Desires? Try this…

Here’s a demonstration of a really valuable tool I use with my clients and at women’s group. Try it out and let me know what you think!

I give myself permission to…

Each week at women’s group I listen for the common theme that is arising in the shares. Sometimes the word is named and sometimes the theme is just beneath the words. As I listened this week, the word permission came up for me as an important theme to explore, even though the word was not explicitly named.

You see, often times I hear a woman convince herself that she does not know what she wants. When I listen a little closer, I hear a desire that seems pretty clear to me but may seem difficult to obtain, or not a possibility in her current frame of belief or understanding. What I come to find out when I take a stand for the deeper yearning I hear between her words is that she hasn’t given herself her permission to simply want what she wants, let alone create it.

What was ultimately revealed is that the only person ever holding yourself back is you although it appears to be your circumstances, other people, or even your herstory. If you look closely, there is often a place where you are holding yourself back and not giving yourself permission to be your authentic self.

How are you not giving yourself permission to be more fully self-expressed and live the life you envision for yourself? One woman was inspired by the evening to use the mantra “I give myself permission to __________.” I want to share that with you and ask you, what would you like to give yourself permission to be, do or have? Let me know, I’d love to hear!

Love,

Kadidja

 

Taking Time to Smell the Roses

 mikeandkadidja

This time last year I was in nervous anticipation of my first child. I was thinking about going into labor and what that would be like. I was making sure we had everything, checking things off the list.

Do we have all the supplies we need for our home birth and everything set up for after the birth? Make sure the house is clean, and that things are in order, oh and don’t forget to get the rugs and couches steam cleaned, dust isn’t good for babies.

Even though people said you don’t need that much, there’s a part of me that didn’t believe them. I’d rather have it just in case. I guess it’s the kind of thing you can’t know ahead of time. That all your baby needs is you.

I could go on and on about all the things I am learning about life and humanity that my daughter Naima is teaching me. One of the major things she reminds me of is that life is about the simple pleasures, like looking for treasures inside of the recycling and displaying them all over the kitchen floor.

Where can you take time to smell the roses and appreciate the simple pleasures this week?

This is Your Year

New year 2015

Happy New Year Beautiful,

I hope your New Year is off to an amazing start. On New Year’ Day, I held a Tele-Class called A Gathering of Women~Creating 2015. It was a rich and meaningful way to set the tone for the coming year. Since then my family and I have conjured a bigger place to call home with a backyard for the little girl. I am seeing her kiddy pool now even though she hasn’t learned to crawl just yet.

The New Year is such a fertile time to reflect and evaluate where you are and plant the seeds for where you want to be. It is filled with the hope and promise of a new beginning, a fresh start, a chance to be more of who you really are and create what matters the most to you.

It’s an opening to clear out the old and make room for the new. The magical power of this is magnified when experinced with others. So if you haven’t already taken out the time to acknowledge and celebrate the heroic journey you walked in 2014, it’s not too late.

What difficulties did you face and see through to other side?

BAby and meOne of the biggest challenges I overcame in 2014 was the initial difficulty I had with breastfeeding. It was intense and uncomfortable for almost 3 months. And one day it just got better and has become one of the most loving ways to connect with my baby. There is such a sense of accomplishment that I feel in having persevered when others were discouraging and I didn’t know when the discomfort was going to end. I get to bring that win into the New Year and into my life period.

By reviewing and acknowledging your successes of the previous year you get to relive the adventure you embarked upon in present time. It’s an opportunity to see how much you actually have done and not take for granted all the prayers that were answered and the desires that were fulfilled.

Some heartfelt desires of mine that came true for me were:

  • I celebrated the impending arrival of my first child with a Blessing Way.
  • I had an amazing home birth and welcomed the birth of my daughter Naima.what do you desire
  • I taught 4 Tele-classes and led almost 100 women’s circles supporting women on their growth path.

What about you? What are you celebrating from 2014? Take some time to write this out. Regularly reviewing your successes strengthens your resolve that you can create other successes in the future.

Now that 2015 is here, you might feel inspired by the promise of the New Year and think to yourself this is the year you go to church every Sunday, or lose 50 lbs, or get out of debt or complete that project that you have been putting off. However, before the end of January, New Year can lose its luster and somehow the goals that seemed so exciting get lost or forgotten in the shuffle.

When you set too many goals and attempt to do a complete life make-over in one sitting you aren’t setting yourself up to win. The goals that initially inspire you require consistent action and attention to materialize. By revisiting your plans and seeing where you are with them on regular intervals you can see if they need to be discarded or adjusted.

Even though New Year’s Eve has come and gone, you can always create an opening for the things you want to birth in the New Year and invite blessings into your life. I invite you to pick a power word for 2015 that symbolizes the energy you want to harness this year. Let it be your mantra.  My power word is completion. What’s yours? Remember, this year is your year and so is every year!

Much Love,

Kadidja
