THE PULSE: Hello October
HALLOWEEN ON THE MIND? We actually don’t have it on ours YET, however a quick glance around our neighborhoods or the grocery store – and it’s definitely October! How are you savoring the last few warm days…and then the crisp days ahead? What are your Fall faves? We’re getting sweatshirt ready and as the leaves begin to turn…we’re readying ourselves to make some positive changes as well.
MERCURY’S GOT YOUR BACK
According to PopSugar, "the first full month of fall begins on a harmonious note, as Mercury, the planet of thought and communication, joins the sun in fair-minded Libra on Oct. 4. This planetary placement is excellent for smoothing over disagreements between tense parties, securing new contractual agreements, and reconnecting with loved ones after a sluggish summer retrograde season."
According to Michael Lennox, "Mercury is out of his retrograde cycle completely, but Venus is not, and her movements this week are important as she will arrive at the end of the four-month process on Friday. This is a more-will-be-revealed transit, and we are now at the more-was-revealed portion. This week, we are coming full circle, and there should be some interesting awareness as you glance back to July, and I trust you will be able to make some sense out of what is being asked of your heart as we move through this week."
Robyn, Karen + Lizzi Cutler are sharing the guidance and practices that are making a difference in their lives…and maybe a little TMI. LOL. If you’re looking for some extra inspo, check it out.
In our next free session together, we’re focusing on the fear of being left out. We've all been there at some point in our lives. Ugh, it's one of the worst feelings. It can send you down a not-enoughness spiral and layer in many more upsetting emotions. Let's banish that for good. It's time to really know your tremendous worth.
We're going to dive in, get deep and release that old energy so that next time you feel that fear coming on, you're empowered to push right past it because you know you're one spectacular soul!
If you're ready to seriously transform your life, this week’s podcast is for YOU! Meet Brianna Brown Keen, who is a tremendous force in this world. She has literally written a guidebook on how to manifest the life that you want to live. She's created Manifesting Your Mission, which is all about supporting and cultivating your goals, happiness, passion, purpose, intuition, and your personal mission. Brianna has birthed an actual methodology, as well as tools to help you discover what you really want to create in your life and make it happen. She's on a literal mission to help as many people as possible be the best versions of themselves. In addition to her work as a coach and author, Brianna is also an award winning actress who has appeared on both the small and silver screen over 300 times. She has produced stage, as well as feature film projects, and is the Chair of the National Women’s History Museum. Brianna has also founded The New Hollywood, a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting socially-conscious storytellers, entrepreneurs and change-makers through goals, grants, and mentorship. Brianna leads by example. She’s been there, done that. She believes our world would be a kinder, more harmonious place if we all had more support and tools to live our purpose and pursue our passions. She has so much to share! Here are a few highlights from our conversation: Robyn and Karen: Welcome Brianna! Let's start at the beginning because life wasn't always so glamorous for you. You had a dark night of the soul at a really young age. Can we start there? Brianna Brown Keen: Absolutely. I'm a big believer that obstacles are opportunities if we allow them to be. And so many things that were hardships when I was younger, propelled me to be the woman that I am today and to feel the desire and urgency to create the things that have not only benefited me, but also benefited others. When I was younger, I was bullied a lot. At the age of 14, I had a real dark period of not knowing what to do and not having tools… not knowing how to speak up. It escalated so much that I nearly ended my life and had to be hospitalized. And then I had a literal 180 degree moment. I went from ‘I don't want to live’...banging my head on the ground wanting to die, to having what felt like white light going through my body. In that moment, I had a real sense of calm and that everything was going to be okay. In that moment, I had this sense that I was going to be fine. I have a purpose. R&K: When you saw that light and you felt that light going through you? What did you think it was? And what was the impact it had on you? Brianna: At the time I was very Christian, so I would have said it was God or the Holy Spirit. I just knew it was something much bigger than me. I could feel energy moving through. I was like, this is bigger than me. It shifted me from being someone who didn't want to be seen to I'm gonna use this. I went back to my school. I stood up to the bullies. I became an overachiever and after high schoolI, I came out to Los Angeles at 19 to pursue acting. R+K: Wow! That felt like a real shift and unlocking for you. So fast forward you head to LA and go about trying to make it as an actress. How did that lead you to creating “Manifesting Your Mission? Brianna: When I get to LA, I am trying to navigate everything. I'm focusing on career. I'm focusing on health. I'm focusing on my spiritual life. I have all these different parts of my being and wanted to be able to set it up in a system to manage all of my goals and hadn't found something that I liked enough to help me do that. So many of the self-help books were very much about achievement. But I was seeing there was a different need to focus on receiving, self-care and boundaries. The Manifesting Your Mission Guidebook helps with setting up your goals for the year. What are personal goals? What are a few of your professional goals? What are your fun goals? What are the habits that you want to really work on? Then it goes into the deeper stuff of what's really going on, so that you're dealing with the campfires that maybe you need to pay attention to, so they never become a forest fire. There's a time in the middle of the year to also reevaluate where you are and assess certain things that might have been important to you that are not as important anymore. That's why every year I go through my goals with new, fresh eyes…like, a right, what am I continuing? What am I letting go of? What am I moving forward at? Or what do I need to put more energy towards? Let's have a plan of action that doesn't feel overwhelming. So you're not just trying a million things all at once and not going anywhere. R+K: Such a fun AND productive way to look at how we evaluate everything we want to do through the lens of what serves us best. Brianna, thank you so much for everything that you are doing!

THE WEEKLY DOWNLOAD
Our Downloads are for everyone reading -- they are guidance from Spirit + The Universe that are channeled through us. KAREN'S DOWNLOAD The most beautiful thing about your “life school” journey is that just when you think that you have learned your lessons…they CAN ALL CHANGE! We can get to a place where we might feel we have “seen it all” or that we have reached a place of “certainty,” only to have the sun rise exposing us to a whole new reality. For many, this can bring fear. Our footing may feel unbalanced. Our perspective may not serve us. We may feel we have lost our way. And this is a wonderful thing! Not knowing, can offer us guidance. Not knowing, can lead us to expansion. Our inner wisdom is always evolving. It is always changing form. There is an invitation to wisdom with every new breath in uncertainty. Acknowledging it as so, can be a new door that opens. With every new encounter. With every new experience…with every new opportunity…. there is another chance to see the world differently! We are, at our soul level, always and eternally children. If we remember “who we really are” which is pure love…in every moment we can choose to look with fresh eyes on everything around us. No matter how much life we have lived, or what we think we know, if we are truly immersed and awake, we will understand that we KNOW NOT! Knowing and being are very different. “Know” is a reflection of past experience. It is the opposite of “now.” Now is where all of our opportunity lies. Now is where we grow, savor, test, question and try again. Now is in every moment to try new, think new. Be new. Isn’t this glorious? Isn’t this just the most divine way of being? Let that sink (sync) in a moment. Forget about knowing. Put your being into “nowing” We are here to always remind you of this. That when life seems uncertain or scary or unfair or anything that is not wonderfully positive, it can also change in an instant…by simply letting go of the judgment of it. That is all about the old belief of “know-ing” and we assure you…it is an illusion. It is purely an earthly perception bound only by time…by the human equations of consciousness. Your power…your certainty…your deliberative livingness..is ALWAYS in the now-ing. Live that and you will bask in the deliciousness of your infinite soul. You will make no wrong choices. You will be your truth, your joy and your purpose. You will truly live in the wisdom of infinite, universal truth, joy and purpose. Wisdom is the kingdom in which the soul resides. Try this and see how your life changes. ROBYN'S DOWNLOAD We are all traveling down this path of what feels like unknowns. Yet our soul knows. We promise your soul knows. It is drawn to the experiences and the energy automatically, you don’t have to do anything. It is when you push against this force that challenges arise. It doesn’t mean that even along the journey that is in flow that there aren’t what feel like challenges…or bumps, yet when in flow they may arise and then fall back into the flow very quickly. It is when you try to force or push against the current that you are changing direction. Know that you can always course correct when you ALLOW. When you TRUST. It really is that simple. It sounds so silly…yet when you practice the allowing and the trusting you will see. Your being in this human body make things more difficult than they need to be…that is part of the experience and you feel all of these different levels of emotion and frequencies. You are here for the experience — and you have much more control over the difficulties than you realize at this very moment. Imagine you are in a boat without a paddle — and if you can allow and trust there may be bumps, but overall it will be smooth sailing. If you continue to push against the current, you will enter some extremely rocky waters. No matter what, we are here to support you. You are always being supported. We encourage you need to change your mindset in order to change your circumstances. You must choose to think differently, to see those around you differently, to see yourself differently in order to allow for real forward motion, rather than sideways or backwards motion. The goal to is be in flow for your particular journey. And know that your journey is connected to others as well. We are all connected. You know that saying a rising tide lifts all boats. We all rise…that is the truth. Feeling peace and love and tranquility and joy — that is what we wish for each of you every single day. It is your natural state of being and is always possible. It is within you, if you allow yourself to feel it. You may have glimpses of this peace and joy…record those moments so that you can more easily dial into that feeling and then more allowing and flow will occur. You are loved and supported. May this week be one of joy and smooth sailing with the current. We encourage you visualize yourself in that boat, feeling safe and being guided and supported on your journey.
