What are You Thinking and Doing
As You Approach the Mid-Way Point of the Year…

 “The capacity to create your experiences, manifest your dreams and fulfill your intentions is a function of your mind and the way you use it to experience and express greater good.” – Harriet Tubman Wright

As you quickly approach the mid-way point of the year, make time to do an assessment.

  1. Where am I based on the intentions that I created for myself at the start of the year?
  2. What intentions have I fulfilled so far?
  3. In what ways have I surpassed or changed my intentions?
  4. For what reasons have I fallen short of achieving my intentions?
  5. What’s necessary for me to get back on point as I enter the second half of the year?

If you’ve not yet made the progress you intended to fulfill your commitments, particularly those to yourself, or achieve your intentions for your business or career, join me for:

“Life is what you make it! You create your life beginning with the thoughts you think, the words you speak and the actions you take. What kind of life are you creating? One of limitation or liberation; one of poverty or prosperity; one of stress or success? The choice is yours…to make it a mediocre or magnificent life!” – Harriet Tubman Wright

Tapping into the Truth – My Soul Says Yes!

“How good it is to affirm your Oneness with and connection to the Creator and all creation; to feel the endless flow of divine love, creativity, wisdom and joy pulsating through your every interaction. How good it is to be at peace living the Truth.” – Harriet Tubman Wright

 On a daily basis, we are bombarded from every direction to buy this, sign that, watch this, protest that…enough to drive you “mad” if you let it!

The purpose of this article is simply to guide you back to your Source, your Self, your Soul; to return to another realm of reality that I call Truth.

Living in Truth may mean that you’re living against the grain or contrary to the status quo or the majority. However, I believe Living in Truth generates peace of mind, such that when all is said and done, you can say, “All is well with my soul.”

“Our lives are divinely ordained and ordered. Therefore, whenever you feel doubt, fear or anger, turn within to reconnect with the Truth of your Divinity, your Light and your Divine Destiny, and do so with deep gratitude.”  – Harriet Tubman Wright

“To step into your power, step from your power, the power of the Creator within expressing in, through and as you. Know this Truth. You are power-filled and powerful! Therefore, all things are possible. Step into your field of infinite possibilities now!”  – Harriet Tubman Wright

How are you living your Soul’s Calling, your Divine Purpose?

  • In what ways are you out of integrity, out of alignment? What is this costing you?
  • In what ways can you step up and show up to be all you’re meant to be and do all you’re meant to do?

I encourage you to answer the questions above and feel free to share your responses in the comments section below or by return email.

It has taken growing into my elder years to stop living someone else’s dream, to stop fulfilling their agenda, or playing it safe. And to start believing more deeply in myself, my gifts and my true purpose. More than anything, it has been my spiritual journey that is the foundation that enabled me to create my own dream of The Wright Resort, Your Soul Safari to Success. This is my way of living my Soul’s Calling, sharing my gifts and talents to help guide women to live their Soul’s Calling and thrive doing what they most love to serve others and help transform our world.

Spiritual Communion is Soul Connection. It is wholeness, freedom, power and divine self-expression, that emanates from my Soul at one with Spirit.

– Harriet Tubman Wright

If you’re stressed or frustrated with work that drains you, rather than excite or fulfill you…and you’re ready to transform your frustration to freedom and fulfillment, schedule a 45-minute complimentary Soul’s Calling Vision Session with me at: https://wrightresort.simplybook.me/v2/#book  At the end of the session you’ll have more clarity and motivation to fulfill your Soul’s Calling!

If anything in this article resonates with you, let me know. If it might help a friend or colleague, please share it.

 “More than ever, the world needs you to demonstrate purpose, passion and power to heal and transform people, so that you, those you empower and the world flourish.” – Harriet Tubman Wright

“Know that you are divinely and lovingly guided through all inner and outer challenges. Allow your thoughts, words and actions to bring forth health and wholeness in your life and in the world. Be at peace with your soul and be a peaceful presence in and to the world.” – Harriet Tubman Wright

To Be Healthy, Whole and Soulful!

“Self-Care and Soul-Care are essential practices to sustain a purposeful and prosperous life.” – Harriet Tubman Wright

Beginning the decade of my 70’s has been quite eventful, enjoyable and exhausting!  Celebrating is work and fun! Affirming intentions requires focus and commitment! Staying aligned and balanced calls for discernment and rest!

In recent weeks I’ve been reminded of how essential self-care practices are to stay healthy and whole; particularly when additional demands on my time and energy compel me to re-establish healthy boundaries. For example, learning when and how to say, “No”, “No, thank you”, or “No, not at this time” without guilt, apology or shame.

In addition to regular exercise, I enjoy quality time in nature and/or in the spa. This recharges me, so that I can serve others from a place of vigor and vitality.

  • What’s your favorite self-care practice?
  • In what ways can you renew your self-care or soul-care practices?

Another self-care strategy is to pause. Author, Speaker, Coach Cynthia James provides useful tips. https://cynthiajames.net/the-pause-perspective/

If you have an office or quiet space you can immediately do this process. If you do not have a quiet place, take a break and go outside or to the restroom.

  • Breathe – Simply take a few deep breaths to bring you out of your head and into your body.
  • Attune – Without judging, get clear about what you are thinking and how you are behaving.
  • Release – Consciously decide to surrender thoughts of lack and limitation.
  • Align – Bring in words or affirmations which support you in being grounded.
  • Recharge – Move your body, put on some calming music, take a short nap, and/or take a short walk.

“Self-care is not about indulgence, it’s about self-preservation.” – Audre Lorde

Finally, another way to practice self-care and soul-care is to engage with a spiritual community or cultural gathering to strengthen your connection with like-hearted others.

The choice is yours, to burn out or blossom, to flounder or flow…

“Our soul is like a soft and gentle flower, it needs to be nurtured, cared for, tended to, with sufficient sunlight, fresh air and freedom to bloom into its most precious and beautiful form. This, my friend, is self-love.” – Miya Yamanouchi

3 Keys to Appreciate Milestones and New Beginnings

As some of you know I’m celebrating a milestone birthday this year; 70 years young on April 6!  Most friends know that I normally go to retreat/spa places to celebrate. However, this year I decided to stay in Oakland and have a party!

Maturing into this milestone (along with Mercury Retrograde most of March) has led to a period of reflection and renewal. However, a mini-retreat for more silence and solitude is in the making!

My life is full, rich, ever-changing. I’m increasingly grateful for my BodyMindSpirit health and well-being; my birth family, spiritual family of many branches, village family; appreciating long-time and new relationships that challenge and enrich me. I’m also grateful for the ways in which The Wright Resort continues to evolve into a form of ministry through which I lead mature women career professionals and entrepreneurs to activate, illuminate and liberate their Soul’s Calling, thereby fulfilling their divine life purpose. As change-makers and leaders, they help galvanize those they serve to transform businesses, workplaces, communities and the world.

  • For what are you most grateful at this time in your life?
  • As you enter the next phase of your life, who are you being and becoming?
  • In what ways are your heart and soul frustrated or fulfilled?

As you embark on your own personal introspection, consider that each milestone; a birthday, graduation, promotion, retirement or relocation…is an opportunity to:

  1. Remember your personal mission; that is your divine purpose or soul’s calling. Sometimes as you’re pulled by other people’s expectations or agendas, you can lose sight of the reason you’ve been put on Mother Earth. You absolutely have a higher calling. How are you answering it?
  1. Assess your skills, talents and gifts, and determine to what extent you are sharing them to serve, empower or uplift others. How are you making a positive difference or helping transform your community or workplace so that our world is a better place because of the ways you’ve contributed?
  1. Make renewal and regeneration a priority, be it spiritual, emotional, mental or physical. Refocus and recommit to daily self-care and soul-care practices to maintain optimal BodyMindSpirit health and demonstrate the value of putting on your oxygen mask first! In this way you can serve your family, co-workers or colleagues from a well-spring of vigor and vitality!

Although you may not be able to celebrate with me on April 6, we can still celebrate throughout the month of April. I also want to extend the same invitation I did to my birthday celebrants, and that is to make a donation to my Kemet Nu  Know Thyself Educational Tour. To do so, please go to: https://www.paypal.me/HarrietWrightResort

My fundraising goal is $700! May I thank you in advance for your consideration.

The Kemet Nu Know Thyself Educational Tour is actually my 70th birthday gift to myself and I’m very excited about this long overdue sojourn!

“Take pleasure in your life’s natural unfolding and evolving. Appreciate the challenges and milestones of the journey. Delight in reaching your destiny. Celebrate it all!”  – Harriet Tubman Wright

 

Harriet Tubman’s Leadership Qualities are Keys for Today’s Emerging Leaders

“I freed a thousand slaves – I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”  ~ Harriet Tubman

Freedom is a universal value. We all want to be free from abuse, struggle, pain or fear…free from circumstances that keep us mentally or emotionally enslaved. Ultimately, we want to be free to be and do our best; to pursue and fulfill our dreams; live our Soul’s Calling or Divine Purpose and share our talents to empower those we serve or help transform the world.

How did Harriet Tubman, an enslaved woman who loved her family and worked hard, yet was abused as a young girl by multiple slave masters, who never learned to read or write, ignite her enduring passion for freedom, freedom not only for herself, but for others as well?  Harriet escaped the plantation in Maryland, following the North Star to freedom, by way of the Underground Railroad, a system of Safe Houses established by Quakers, other whites and free blacks, where run-away slaves could rest, eat and get instructions to continue their perilous escape to the North. She continued until she crossed the border between slave-holding and non-slaveholding states, making her way to Philadelphia, where she worked odd jobs for about a year, saving her money.

With freedom and compassion in her heart, Harriet returned to the South 19 times, freeing more than 300 enslaved people, including siblings and her elderly parents. She became one of the most famous Conductors on the Underground Railroad.

“I never ran my train off the track, and I never lost a passenger.”  ~ Harriet Tubman

What qualities did she exemplify to transform her life and that of others; qualities that women today can cultivate to become empowered leaders in their industry or field; empowered leaders who can help bring about justice and peace in the world. What can you learn from Harriet’s commitment, courage and tenacity to create your own leadership legacy?

Although there are several qualities that she embodied, let me highlight 3 qualities: Vision, Faith and Support.

  1. Develop Your Vision – see in your heart and mind’s eye what you want to create, manifest or achieve. Seek to identify the ‘why’ of your vision. Allow the ‘why’ to be a guiding light and focus. Create a vision board or altar as a tangible reminder of your vision. Just as Harriet Tubman kept focused on freedom, using the North Star to guide her…
    • What is your North Star?
  1. Cultivate Your Faith – Following your vision requires faith, tenacity, stamina; beginning with an unwavering belief in yourself, trust in a Higher Power and faith to follow the course, regardless of perceived or real obstacles.
    • How are you demonstrating faith in your vision?
    • What are the spiritual practices that strengthen your courage and commitment?
  1. Build Your Team – No matter how talented, driven or resourced, you can’t achieve anything alone. Whether it’s a family member, colleague or business partner, it’s essential to have a support system with which you can share the process, delegate certain tasks and stay accountable.
    • How would you describe your current support system?
    • In what way(s) are you demonstrating conscious leadership?

To explore these and other questions related to developing your leadership, please schedule a complimentary Cultivating Leadership Strategy Session with me at:https://wrightresort.simplybook.me/v2/#book This is a 45-minute phone session to identify current challenges, explore possibilities and discover your leadership potential. This session often helps women gain more clarity, insight and motivation.

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” ~ Harriet Tubman

“We stand on the brink of a great evolutionary shift, and our feminine consciousness is needed. It is integral to the reweaving of the world. It is what will birth a new way of being that will reignite our care and compassion for the Earth, for the trees, for generations to come.” – Clare Dubois, Founder, TreeSisters

Take a moment to think about your sheroes, that is, in addition to your grandmothers, great grandmothers or other powerful women in your family.

  • What women have been the most influential role models for you?
  • In what ways can you apply the lessons of their trials, tribulations and triumphs?
  • What qualities do the women listed above have in common?
  • Identify other women you’d add to the list?
  • In what ways can you cultivate greater influence and leadership? 

We can look to these women of influence, power and leadership; revolutionary women of courage, wisdom, faith and talent who have changed the world and are changing the world, to help fuel our own desires to BE the change we seek for ourselves and our world! 

International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

International Women’s Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first​ ​IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Prior to this the​ Socialist Party of America, United Kingdom’s Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women’s equality.

Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.​ Make IWD your day – everyday.
