A Gift That Keeps on Giving

A Gift That Keeps on Giving

Just over 10 years ago, I published my first non-fiction book called Blocks. To accompany it, I created a set of meditations. Little did I know then that would lead me down a completely different path.

This month, my meditations reached the 2.3 million listens point on Insight Timer. By gifting them away free, so much abundance has come my way to create a new level of freedom which has taken me to a place beyond my wildest dreams.

This energetic flow is a gift that keeps on giving.

Since creating those first few meditations, I have built up an amazing repository of materials. A small fraction of these materials have found their way on to Insight Timer but, up to now, much of it has been under lock and key behind a username and password which is unlocked by the exchange of money.

From today this all changes. My archive is now freely available to all.

One of my most popular meditations on Insight Timer, called Just for Today, has had just short of 600k listens. A meditator asked the other day for an extended version which you can now find here – called Just a Little Longer. This is also the first ever track where I have composed and created the ambient background music … more of this in 2020.

Also I am honoured to have been chosen by Insight Timer to provide the Daily Insight on Christmas Day. It will be available in 5, 10 and 20 minute versions and is called The Turning Point. If you are ready for a change in the next orbit of the Sun, it’s an example of another gift that will keep on giving.

p.s. The Turning Point got over 4000 people meditating on Xmas Day and is now available in the archive – https://insig.ht/KpYRTiFiI2

Soulwaves available for pre-order

Last, but by no means least, after 15 years and 15 other books, my first novel – Soulwaves – will be published on the first Full Moon of 2020.

It’s available for pre-order now in paperback, hardback and ebook.

The audiobook has been recorded and uploaded but I have no control of publication date – it is though trickling out to a few platforms like Google Play.

Listen to the channelling from Louisa Tanner Munson to find out why it’s being published on the first Full Moon of 2020.

Why was Soulwaves published on the 1st Full Moon of 2020?

The Business of Mindfulness

The Business of Mindfulness

Practical MindfulnessMy book The Authority Guide to Mindfulness explores how we can use the practice of mindfulness meditation for real world outcomes. Being a practical book too, it doesn’t just talk about the subject but it comes with the 10 minute guided meditations so you actually experience the meditative state.

You will learn how mindfulness is not a box ticking exercise where you go on a course and that’s it. It is a way of life and a way to be which is less stressful, more graceful and easier all round.

When I finished the book, it got me thinking how I run my own business ‘mind-fully’ and how that has brought success my way without any associated stress. Here’s five tried and trusted aspects of how I go about it :

Method #1 : Give Stuff Away

It’s a general maxim in life that what goes around comes around. When we offer a free gift, the obvious bonus is the capture of an email address so we can market to people. With a little extra effort, there is a more subtle and mindful benefit to be had still. I have written a series of daily nuggets of mindfulness that appear in peoples’ In Boxes each week day. They are called Just for Today and a month’s worth takes me around an hour to write. As a result, you keep in your potential customer’s minds each and every day.

Method #2 : Shout Quietly

As mentioned in the new book, it’s not a good idea to market your products and services by being disparaging about your competitors. Neither is it a good strategy to push your products in peoples’ faces. A much better way is what I am doing here and that’s to share valuable content that others can use and then to mention your own products and services in passing and in context. So my way of ‘shouting quietly’ is by posting content on my blog and also by interviewing like minded people on my podcast. These days it is my main marketing tool and it seems to generate all the business I need. In addition, when on social media, my policy is to only be positive and to share wisdom, successes and celebrations.

Method #3 : Share Your Wisdom

The writing and publishing of my books has not only opened many doors for me but it has also opened the hearts and minds of many readers. As an unexpected spin off, it also lead to a career I didn’t plan as an author’s mentor. More importantly still, when you encapsulate your wisdom in a book, in a small way you immortalise yourself. It’s said, “The only thing you can take with you is your evolution and the only thing you can leave behind is your art”. It’s also a good idea to leave the world a better and wiser place than how you found it just in case you have to come back again.

Method #4 : Increase Your Promise

The way to get more money into your world is to make promises and keep them. Promise to deliver on time and within budget and clients will come back and refer others to you. Learn something new each day and you will increase your promise and be able to deliver more and more with increased value. This podcast from the Zone Show [an example of #Method 2 explains more].

Method #5 : Be Philanthropic

If you are living in the developed world and actually have a business, you are considerably better off that the vast majority of people on the planet. So one smart way to move money energy around is to align a relevant product or service with a ‘good cause’ and give a percentage of your earnings away. I had my cataracts removed this year and ended up starting a philanthropic initiative as a result of a light bulb moment I had on the operating table.

A Year for Stepping Up

A Year for Stepping Up

Stepping Up in 2017Before embarking on another year, it pays dividends to reflect on the year just gone.

For me, 2016 was one amazing year and an example of how any formal goal setting can actually hamper our progress. So-called “SMART goals” are better than having no goals at all. Perhaps where they are not so smart after all is that they can lead us to manifesting the ego’s desires, rather than to follow the soul’s calling.

p.s. my two meditations, Just Imagine and Just Be, from my Meditations for Relaxation, lead us to a much better outcome all round.

This Was 2016

By way of example, this is what unfolded in 2016, all of which I had definitely not planned !

What’s Planned for 2017?

So, in retrospect, 2016 was one of my most successful and productive years yet. That said, and on reflection, I know now with hindsight I could have done things better. Knowing too that planning might not be ideal, how can I hope to improve on 2016 in 2017?

The key lies in setting goals based on what I’d like to learn, which is :

  • How to take my meditations to a wider audience with speaking engagements and virtual presentation opportunities
  • How to develop, deepen and mature the many co-creation opportunities that have come my way
  • How to create meditations that help specific groups of people and address specific issues
  • How to get my books on to the bestseller list
  • How to monetise my new found skills as an interviewer and take my podcast from 200k listens to 2 million and beyond

Having a Meta-strategy

When we set ourselves a meta-strategy, what I have found happens is that all the resources we need seems to pop along just when you need them. By sharing your strategy with others, the perfect co-creators seem to pop along just when you need them too. So here goes …

My meta-strategy is to help awaken humanity, and the planet as a whole, to the next level of consciousness

There, I have said it – now your turn – pop yours in by way of comment below. You never know who is reading this who might be able to help you achieve it !!

p.s. if achieving any of the above appeals to you and you want to know how, I’d be delighted to help, get in touch !!

A Map of the Heart

A Map of the Heart
