A Purposeful Awakening!

A landmark interactive spiritual event is on the horizon. Starting Monday, March 3rd at 8pm CST, Oprah Winfrey and best-selling author and spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle will team up to teach a live weekly Web Event centered around “A New Earth,” Oprah’s latest book club selection. This revolutionary Web Event is being hailed as “the biggest classroom ever,” and is free to join.

The Becoming a Woman of Purpose community has been invited to participate in this event. We are one of over 50 different communities – websites, blogs, groups – involved.

Already being heavily discussed on Oprah.com, the Oprah Show, and news networks, this event is creating major buzz around the world. because the book’s main theme “awakening to your life’s purpose,” is central to our discussions, we believe this 10-week transcendent Web Event is bound to inspire activity and discussions within all of our BWP communities.

AHA! Moments
Each week, the course will cover one of the ten chapters in the book. There is already a dynamic discussion on Oprah.com around the AHA! Moment in each chapter.

The AHA! Moment is the flashpoint where the topic of each chapter hits home. This will be a great topic of discussion within the BWP communities.

Author of the #1 New York Times’ Best Seller “The Power of Now,” spiritual teacher and speaker Eckhart Tolle, who teaches heavily on the transformation of consciousness, has devoted his life to helping others find inner peace and greater fulfillment in their lives.

About the Book
Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents readers with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.

Tolle tells us there is good news, however. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one.

In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are—which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are—and learn to live and breathe freely. ~ From Amazon.com

Already over 380,000 have registered, so don’t miss out on the web event of the year. If you are serious about awakening to your life’s purpose, then join in this revolutionary event.

There's a Hole in My Sidewalk

In the book, The Best Year of Your Life, author and speaker Debbie Ford includes this poem which I believe sums up so many of our own stories.

There’s a Hole in My Sidewalk:
Autobiography In Five Short Chapters
by Portia Nelson

Chapter I
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost ... I am helpless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes me forever to find a way out.

Chapter II
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I am in the same place, but it isn't my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter III
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in ... it's a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.

Chapter IV
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

Chapter V
I walk down another street.

Most of us are sleepwalking through life and are bound to keep falling into the hole in the sidewalk. Until we awaken, to ourselves and those around us, Chapter Five will continue to elude us.

Awaken to your power,
Coach Carolyn

Happy Passion and Loooove Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day Passionate People!

You know, this has never been one of my favorite days simply because it has become so commercialized. I say we love and eat chocolate everyday! Not just on February 14th.

But this year is a little different. Please help me celebrate this day by indulging one of my passions: writing. And I have two ways to celebrate:

First, I have been memed, (that means tagged for all you blogger-language challenged folks) by the Diva herself, Toby Bloomberg, in her Friday Fun. I am to come up with 7 Facts About Me. Now, I know dozens of facts about me, but can never think of them when asked. So, I thought for this Valentine’s Day, that would be my love treat to me and to all of you. Here goes:

1. I was painfully shy as a child and could not speak in public, now you cannot shut me up!

2. I like dogs, but I love cats. Cats are snooty and prissy, just like me! Although, I prefer penguins; but I can't keep one in my apartment.

3. I love to laugh! That is my major form of exercise.

4. The ‘D’ that’s my middle name could either stand for dynamic or deadly, depending on what day it is. Okay seriously, it’s Denyse.

5. I am not really a chocolate eater; but I looove Skittles! I eat them two by two, different colors, of course.

6. I love journals and candles. They go together like... Bert and Ernie!

7. I must take myself on a date once a week to be near a body of water. Okay, so when I’m really busy, I fill the bathtub!

And there you have it. Seven incredibly off the wall facts about the Wild Wiki Woman! Rock on!

Also, for this love day, I want to share that I am one of the featured authors in the new Power of Love e-book by Dr. Fran Harris, America’s InPowerment Coach. Dr. Fran is a WNBA Champion, Business Coach, TV Host and speaker. And she is dynamic to boot!

I am so excited about this book because if I were not a passion and prosperity coach, I would be a loooove coach! Just giving everybody love! This ebook, hot off the presses today, is a compilation of stories about love. So, give yourself the gift of love, and purchase this love nugget at only $9.97.

With just a couple clicks of the mouse, you can have the Power of Love in your hot little inbox. Now, how rockin is that?

Show me some love by showing yourself some love, get this book. Have a rockin V-Day, everyday!

Show the love with purpose!

Dynamic Women of Passion and Purpose ~ January Meetup

Of all the things I love about my life and work is the opportunity to meet amazing and dynamic women. Coaching women to guide them to discover their passion and create a life of purpose and prosperity is the most rewarding thing I could do in life. Watching the women discover inner awarenesses, aha moments, and spiritual breakthroughs is a life altering experience for me. I was again privileged to witness this at our last Becoming a Woman of Purpose gathering in January.

The workshop, entitled “How to Create Your 2008,” brought together a group of ten women who were strangers when they walked into the room to a group of women who were sharing tears (luckily I have tissues at these events), laughter, hugs and breakthroughs. Though there were some tough issues to confront and work through, the energy in the room was electrifying. These women were on fire!

We began with a clearing ritual that brought up lots of nasty baggage for several of the women. Working through the baggage, the women were coaches to one another. Our youngest member of the evening was a twenty-year-old who began the tissue chase. Yet all the women agreed that she had such wisdom for someone so young. She was so in touch with her “shadow side” and she minced no words. She also realized that she needed to be among other women on the journey.

To watch the women take charge and care for one another is truly a gift. We were all sisters separated at birth!

One of the questions I left the women with is one I will post here for your discernment: “What are you excited about in this moment?”

Remember, you are a Divine expression – one of our gals had a tough time with that realization, and the other women were quick to show her her own greatness and divinity. You have the power to create your life – a life of passion, purpose and peace, yielding you amazing prosperity in all areas of your life.

Ladies, I am honored to travel with you on this journey of passion, purpose, and life!

Live passionately... what else have you got to do?
Coach Carolyn
