“I am the captain of my fate. I am the master of my soul.”
I once heard Oprah recite these lines– from the poem “Invictus,” by William Ernest Henley– in an interview many years ago. She went onto share that these two sentences are some of the guiding lights in her life.
Upon hearing them, they became that for me, too. Aware that my thoughts create my reality, reciting these words internally (sometimes countless times a day) remind me of my power as Creator.
As a new year dawns, I urge you to remember the same.
Since you are the captain of your fate, master of your soul, who do you want to become in 2018?
Where do you want to go and what do you want to do?
How will you author the story of your life this year?
I ask you these questions because I’ve noticed that, true to human nature, we seem to have lost the forest from the trees. We keep handing our power over to someone–or something– outside of us.
In recent years, as we’ve come to revere the Divine Feminine, we’ve replaced one set of rules (work yourself to the bone to prove that you can do the job as well as any man can) for another (drink green juice, wear crystals, and worship the moon and Mercury Retrograde to prove that you’re a good person).
Somewhere in the mix of swapping one societal code for another, we’re still missing the point.
You are the creator of your life.
You are god in the flesh.
You are a divine being, in charge of designing your own destiny.
The power is inside of you. And you’ll never find it anywhere else.
If you’re not yet as happy, healthy, whole, wealthy, successful, vibrant, or (fill in the blank), as you long to be……maybe it’s time to admit that you’ve been looking for answers in all the wrong places.
Will 2018 be the year that you finally take your power back?
Will 2018 be the year that you stop blaming others, making excuses for yourself, and making your body and mind toxic cesspools of disempowering thoughts and feelings?
Will 2018 be the year that you finally dare to sit still, get quiet, and listen to the source (your SHE) within you?
If your answer is “YES,” then I invite you to come on a journey with me. Beyond the land of “same-old, same-old,” and into the Realm of Extraordinary (aka The Kingdom of Heaven Within).
Over the next few weeks, I’ll show you the ins and outs of this mystical landscape in a new podcast mini-series: Disrupting the Divine Feminine.
DAENERYS, DAKINIS & “DISRUPTING” THE DIVINE FEMININE
Life booted me out of the arena and into the sidelines (or, more accurately, into some far away hell realm) for the past couple of years. Upon my return to reality, I’m noticing some pretty cool stuff. Everyone’s tracking their moon cycles. Living in harmony with the seasons. And embracing their inner Kali. Hallelujah!
But, since the Universe is always expanding, there’s more in store for us than this. In fact, we’re only just getting started.
In today’s SHE Talk, I map out:
- The (exciting!) new model of womanhood that Oprah debuted earlier this week
- Why I’m transplanting the hottest concept from the business world into the field of feminine spirituality & empowerment
- How Quantum Physics can help us feel at home in a very uncertain world
- Why super-sexy, flying fairies (from a 1,000-year-old tradition in Tibetan Buddhism) hold the medicine we’re all seeking today
- What Daenerys Targaryen can teach us about embodying new levels of greatness as women
…and much more.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll share 4 more episodes in this mini-series. If you’re needing to remember that you alone hold the power to create your reality, I hope this episode returns you to your agency. It’s a small taste of what’s to come in the only program I’m teaching this year: The SHE School & SHE Leadership Circle 2018.
If you’re ready to commit to being the captain of your fate this year, I invite you to:
FEBRUARY 1-OCTOBER 31, 2018
What if you made exquisite self-care non-negotiable in 2018?
What if you rescued “me time” from the bottom of your To Do list?
What if you wove meditation right into your schedule, in a do-able rhythm?
What if you had fiercely loving mentoring to keep you on your path this year?
And what if you had a 9-month container for all of this … with support and accountability from a global community of women?
This is some of what you can count on in The SHE School & SHE Leadership Circle 2018: a 9-month spiritual leadership & lifestyle immersion for women.
Tens of thousands of women have engaged with my programs and read my books over the past two decades. But The SHE School is the fullest expression of my teachings … and the absolute best way I know to help you recover from over-giving and over-shoulding and instead live married to your own deepest truth, everyday.
Because my books are lovely. And podcast episodes can zing you with truth. But actual transformation that sticks? This takes daily practice, time, and support. And since I first began offering this online practice community in 2011, I’ve honed in on the absolute best format to nurture your journey home to yourself.
CLICK HERE TO EXPLORE THE SHE SCHOOL 2018 (AND IT’S NEW, MASTERMIND COMPONENT, “THE SHE LEADERSHIP CIRCLE, FOR THOSE READY TO INFUSE THEIR WORK WITH HEART AND SOUL).
I want every woman who needs this wisdom to find out about it, so I’ll be emailing you more often than usual this month to share these podcast episodes with you.
Each offers a taste of some of the fresh teachings and practices I’ll share in this year’s SHE School. At any point along the way, if this resonates with your own depths, you’re always welcome to learn more about this 9-month journey right here.
Thank you for being here. And above all, thank you for being you. It’s a tremendous privilege to be able to be part of your life, and it’s one that I don’t take lightly. I know your time is sacred, and I only want to only offer what will enhance the quality of your precious life.
Remember, everything you need is inside you. Take the time to listen to your inner wisdom. And, above all, cultivate the strength to live from it.
