AloOha! Starting a progress log to keep me swimming forward!
I am just about to complete Base Camp! The climb has been awesome so far! Loving the community, excited to meet a buddy, success is on the schedule, daily rituals in place, ready to face any lurking fears!
I’m at the final stop at base camp of releasing (which has been a HUGE thing I’ve been doing for some time! Gotta release the old to let in the gold) so putting it down in my log here and going to… Let. It. GO. (Cue Frozen music: Let it go, let it go….)
Analysis paralysis. Releasing the over-thinker syndrome.
Who am I to be ____? Releasing the self-doubter.
What will people think? Releasing the self de-powering.
But it’s not good enough yet! Releasing the perfectionist.
But what if _______? Releasing the possibility projector.
But you’ve always been/always done __________. Releasing the old self definers.
WHEW! Feeling lighter. That should make the climb much easier unloading some of those heavy items from my pack!
Ready to climb on…

As you were listing all the elements you were letting go, I saw them all popping up as comic book (or movie) villains…
POW to the Perfectionist.
Kablammo to the OverThinker
BLAP to the Possibility Projector
I salute you in this campfire burning ceremony.
The climb will definitely be much easier with all that baggage off your back and conscience!November 10, 2016 at 11:30 am #31478
@Bradley LOVE that visual! Thank you!November 12, 2016 at 7:13 am #31700
I’m at the entry point of Architekt Forest. Since last update I’ve made my way through Reflection Pond (met the Water Goddess!), intentions have been set thanks to the meditative state the Shaman took me into (LOVED the meditation!), found my Why, and drank from the fountain of riches (cheers!)!
Mapora Meadows was an adventure! This is where my ‘head’ wanted to take over into the over-thinking process which usually likes to stop my flow.
It tells me my old offerings were ‘tangible’ but the world I’m stepping into now is about as foggy as the forest I saw ahead and stepped into to see if it would clear things up! HA!
I have all day today to work through these things, and might send out a smoke signal if I remain lost in these realms.
Hoping a few more steps in the climb with clarify these things more (along with some deep reflection and meditation).
Perhaps it is my first encounter of resistance on the climb to change! (Oh!)November 12, 2016 at 8:23 am #31703
I’m curious what your brainstorming process is?
Do you do it on big paper, a white board, a colouring book, journal, in evernote or something else?
Open your mind and consciousness up to the big possibilities that exist. You are here to create an experience that’s nevr been done. This is an adventure and a creative vision quest. Have fun with it, let your imagination loose, take plenty of dance breaks and watch the majik unfold.November 12, 2016 at 8:33 am #31705
I think it’s that ‘SPECIFIC’ thing.
Before when I taught my bodywork technique, it went a lot deeper, but that was easy to put into tangible words ‘you’ll be certified in this new technique.’
Now wanting to focus more on the ‘deeper’ work (burnt out from hands on) I feel I struggle with my ‘tangible’ specific result.
Experience more joy and meaning… Be more you… I see there are other courses out there, but is that really enough? I feel like I’m missing something.
I have a wall-sized white board (I’m a very visual person). I also have notebooks filled. Journal a lot. I swear it’s there, it’s just my head over complicating everything.
When this course idea came to me- it poured out all over my whiteboard! It was like it flowed completely through me. I was dancing and writing and so filled with joy! Name of course. Outline. My board was covered.
Any suggestions on the tangibles?
This was what came through on my Transformation exercise:
To take people from feeling lost, stuck or living a watered down version of themselves to creating more joy and meaning in their life by discovering and living a life true to them.

Awesome. A great place to start is on their struggles. What is your ideal student struggling with? What is their heart yearning for?
By experiencing more “more joy and meaning,” what will that do for their life? What does that actually mean for them, for their family, for their friends, for their business, for the world?
You’re right. It’s extremely vague. So take it a step forward. How does more meaning and joy impact the rest of their lives?November 12, 2016 at 8:39 am #31710
Keep digging in and playing with words and ideas. The answers will become clear.November 12, 2016 at 8:44 am #31712
Ok, will do! Thank you!November 19, 2016 at 12:18 pm #32017
Climb log update… The fog has lifted and hiking in the forest has continued!
Big “aha” came through about my previous teachings and how they all lead up to what is starting to be called in!
This climb is now focused on improving them and completing them so that they are all in alignment with my heart’s truth and my student’s needs and desires.
Excited to ‘see the light!’
Climbing on…November 22, 2016 at 11:53 am #32096
Send a link over Bobbie Jo, would love to see your previous courses 😀November 22, 2016 at 12:33 pm #32099
Aloha Bradley! I’ll post some links here… (These are the info pages that show the course breakdowns. My ‘Map’ for all of my courses is a nautilus shell with 3 checkpoints: Spirit. Mind. Body. We start from the center of the shell- Spirit and work our way out to Body.)
This one I am not offering anymore but is the original certification course I did offer, and the course I have based the other two creations on:
This one is my ‘intro’ course: Seashell Therapy 101
This one would be a follow up to the intro course for those wanting to dive deeper, Deep Sea Healing
And this is another little one I have too: Meditation Made Simple
The other courses I am looking to build, go deeper but after my aha’s I can see how they can build from these and how these can be made even better and in alignment with where I’m at.
In Creatora Heights right now, and LOVE the Transformation vs Information and less is more that you and Andy kept mentioning. I always feel I need to give more and this helped me to look deeper at the transformation and integration versus brining in even more ‘information.’ Thank you!!
Oh yea, and my courses are currently in WPCourseware. They have videos, pdfs, audios, quizzes, some have live calls.. (oh, and some the dreadful slides and voiceover-Ahhh!!!, so excited to change that! HA!!)
Any feedback or questions welcome! Thank you so much!!!December 2, 2016 at 12:28 pm #32615
Climbed up quite a way on the mountain, taking in the view! It’s amazing!! Going to hike back down a bit to really dive in to some of the checkpoints deeper, so when standing at Launch Point I can clearly shout what I’m about. 😉
Grateful for the feedback thus far. Made a debut (with a bad cold, looking like I was hit by a train, and a brain that was in such a fog- I probably couldn’t tell you my name) on our live coaching call. My internet cut out some, but I felt very supported and excited to keep diving in for more clarity.
Today I am diving in to that… doing more writing and drawing out of things.
Had a great Buddy call last night too!
Will start a Campfire soon with the insights to get some more feedback.
LOVING this adventure, my guides, and the mountain community. Grateful I said YES!December 12, 2016 at 4:40 pm #33104
swimmingclimbing up the mountain… just a little slow right now. After being sick for over two and a half weeks, I went to the doctor today. Have my first ever sinus infection. Taking the steps to get on the mend! Meanwhile still doing as much deep work as my head will allow. It’s coming together (slowly but surely).December 26, 2016 at 4:51 pm #33552
So it’s been a month of unwell (literally Thanksgiving to Christmas). Cold to sinus infection to antibiotics to allergic reaction to antibiotics to flu. HA! Through that I’ve also done some deep inner work as well. Looking forward to a healthy deep breath and returning with freshness to the climb! Lots of aha’s through this all to take in and put in place. Boots are drying by the fire and getting ready to climb again. Let’s do this!!!!
