The Primal Happiness Show

I'm speaking to Caroline Frenette.  Caroline is an Intuitive Business Coach and Entrepreneur, she was the owner of two different retail businesses over ten years.

Caroline has spent the past two+ years researching the human intuitive process as it applies specifically to business building & entrepreneurship, immersing herself as a research participant in over 25 well-known business courses and conducting experimentation with her own businesses, as well as those of her clients, and investing over $100,000 to date in her quest to help business owners develop a deep inner security, confidence and strength that will transform the way they do business forever.

Caroline’s research and professional interests have led her to explore various opportunities around the world, her next venture & dream being to develop a non-profit to teach these same principles to women in developing countries how to do what she calls, “create a business from the inside out.”

Today we're talking about awakening your inner CEO and creating a thriving business from the inside out.

What you'll learn from the show:

  • Instead of simply following our passion, excitement or good feeling, regardless of red flags we notice, Caroline recommends following our inner voice. Even though sometimes our intuition is guiding us towards something that doesn't feel easy or comfortable.

  • Caroline describes our inner voice as having a clear, neutral, truth, with no feeling attached to it. Caroline says that the inner voice is completely separate to emotions like fear or feeling good.

  • We all have access to this inner voice or intuition. Caroline guided us through a short exercise to notice this for ourselves and has gifted listeners access to her 75 minute intuitive playshop Awakening Your Inner CEO.

 I'm here today with Lea Ann Mallett, an activist, a mum and a leadership coach.

Lea Ann used to be a Direct Action Wilderness Activist, she did lots of big, meaningful things but now sees that some of that anger-fuelled action didn't create sustainable change. Her philosophy is now all about the power of small actions and also love in action. We're talking about the fact that every single one of us have to power to change the world for the better.

What you'll learn from the show:

  • We are all activists because we're all taking action in every moment. We can all choose to take small actions that change the world in a positive way.

  • When we internalise loving kindness to ourselves, when we're comfortable with who we are, it becomes natural for our small actions to be imbued with loving kindness. People doing ordinary things with love, taking the time to connect, becomes extraordinary. World-changing, in fact! :)

  • The ripples that we start today can go on to create huge changes through time and space. Isn't it amazing to think of the ways that people's small actions years ago have created who we are today (and how wonderful if we also have the opportunity to thank them). We all have the power to be someone else's ripple!

We'd love to know what came up for you as you listened to this show. Let's carry on the conversation...  leave a comment below or connect to Lea Ann via the link below.

I'm speaking to Tammy Furey. Tammy is a Coach for parents, a 3 Principles practitioner, and she is currently writing a book about her unique take on gratitude.

Gratitude is a scientifically proven answer to happiness but Tammy noticed many of her clients were struggling with it. Tammy had an insight about gratitude and her passion now is sharing her understanding so it can help others. In this show, Tammy shares her philosophy about the three stages of gratitude:

What you'll learn from the show:

The misunderstanding in gratitude is offering highly conceptual forms of gratitude practice when people are simply not ready. When you are depressed, down, anxious and sad, being told that you should be grateful for your life is laughable, unhelpful and may lead you to abandon any ideas of bringing gratitude into your life. It is the equivalent of trying to put the roof on a house that is still installing the ground floor: the whole thing doesn’t fit and will collapse. This is what has lead Tammy to the Red, Amber, Green system of gratitude.

  • Red: When we're in a low state of mind, what we're able to access is so much less than usual therefore feeling grateful about high concepts like the roof over our head can feel challenging. When finding yourself at this level, Tammy suggests looking around you at the smallest things that naturally evoke gratitude in you - that could be a leaf, the sound of a bird singing, the scent of your favourite perfume, or a much-loved ornament. When we let go of the 'I should feel grateful for my marriage/health/roof over my head', we can allow ourselves to open up to the smallest things we notice that we feel grateful for.

  • Amber: At this stage, we're able to notice more things to be grateful for, quite organically and without effort so we're then able to look at the things in our lives which are a bit of a challenge for us for feel gratitude for.   Tammy gives the example of money, which many of us find a difficult topic but when we're at this stage, we can feel grateful for the gift of electricity... even when we're paying the electricity bill. :)

  • Green: When we're in our highest states of minds, that's when we are able to feel gratitude, very naturally, for all kinds of things, including high concepts like the roof over our head or our families, no matter what the external circumstances.

The system builds your understanding and allows your gratitude practice to broaden and deepen as you become open to explore the many ways gratitude can be expressed and played with. This also allows for massively cheeky contradictions and paradoxes!
