10 Traits of A Fully Empowered Woman

There is an air about a strong woman that is undeniably attractive, yet it has nothing to do with appearance.  She knows who she is, and what she wants, and she isn’t afraid to go out and make it happen.   Empowerment is a moment to moment journey, a choice that rests on each decision we make. If we as women can make more decisions from a place of inner strength, we can create a better life, and ultimately contribute to a better world. 1.  She takes responsibility for her life An empowered woman knows that to own her power, she must also own her sh*t. She is continually healing, learning and growing at all times. She uncovers and heals the fears, wounds, sabotaging patterns and limiting beliefs that have held her back. She heals her past wounds because she knows that if she doesn’t, she will continue recreating them. She releases unhealthy patterns from her lineage and takes full responsibility for her own actions. She questions and challenges the unconscious societal narratives that have limited the role of a woman in the world. Embodiment  Notice when you are acting from a place of fear, a limiting belief or someone else’s desires - that you may not feel comfortable with. Challenge yourself to make new choices. Find the support and the healing you need. This can sound overwhelming, but with the right resources to support you, it will be well worth it. 2.  She dances to the beat of her own drum Empowered women know they are the authors of their own experience. When you heal and clear old beliefs, programs...

I am That I am – Michael Kelly-Cruise

Hello I am Michael Kelly-Cruise and I am excited to be coming to share with you about our I am statements. Most mornings when I can I am blessed with the ability to go down to the beach and sit by the water and begin my day just looking and being by the water.  I think to myself I am that, I am.   I am that peace and stillness, I am that beauty and I am one with the water and it’s surroundings.    I see at this moment the world at its most glorious and I know that this is how life is meant to be. As a child I remember making my decisions based on what people are going to think of me.  That was most important, I craved to be liked so I did what was necessary to make people like me.  I also made a decision that I needed to do it myself, if I asked for help it was a sign of failure I craved the satisfaction of discovering this for myself.    I Craved the recognition of others I depended on them to tell me I was good enough, I would always find myself at the mercy of others in determining my own self worth. I remember getting to a stage in my early teens, of knowing this was not going to work, that I am never going to please everyone, that there had to be someone or someplace I could go to find my self worth, that place of inspiration and support for all that I have to offer.   I knew this had to...

Making the Dream of Working in Your PJs a Reality

MANY a woman has fantasised about running her own business from home in her pyjamas with no grumpy boss to answer to and the flexibility to visit the principal's office when her kid has been ordered into the naughty corner again. But the reality of going into business for yourself can be very different. Working alone you have few people to bounce ideas off, help you celebrate your successes and brainstorm challenges. The office Christmas party can also be a bit of a fizzer. It's something Kingscliff mum and businesswoman Melissa Groom knows only too well. Three years ago, the 41-year-old launched a YouTube parenting TV show from home with few resources and little technical know-how. Adding to the challenge was that some of the work had to be conducted from the Mater Children's Hospital in Brisbane while her then 11-year-old-son underwent a life-saving kidney transplant. With her son on the mend after two years of rollercoaster emotions and her online business ticking over, Melissa was dying to get out of the house and enjoy some face-to-face companionship as opposed to cyberspace friends. "I felt isolated," she recalls. She investigated existing women's networking groups and could find nothing held at a convenient time or for an affordable price. So she posted an invitation on Facebook for like-minded women to join her for coffee at Palm Beach and was stunned when 32 people showed up. It was the start of what would eventually become another small-business success story for Melissa - the Mums In Business networking group. For several months she ran the Palm Beach chapter for free weekly, eventually...
