Step 3 – Embody Your Wise Queen Leadership
Hello dear community!
Over the past 2 weeks, I’ve been taking you through my 3 step process of activating your intuitive Wise Queen Leadership, and our third and final step of this process focuses on utilizing our brilliant body temple as a shortcut to move through fear, doubt, and limiting beliefs, or what I like to call “frozen entrepreneurial syndrome”.
Just coined that term “frozen entrepreneurial syndrome” and I know y’all know what I’m talking about!
Through diving into some of my favorite embodied confidence-boosting techniques, you’ll release imperfection, radically boost self-assurance while facilitating, and FULLY own your sense of self-worth while holding powerful and transformative space for your community.
Here are a few embodiment techniques to explore to boost your confidence and self-assurance before facilitating your community:
1. Rock a Queen Power Pose – Before going in to lead your community, embody yourself in a power pose for 1-2 minutes.
Create a big X with your whole body, physically taking up as much space as possible, or standing in a “Superhuman” stance.
As you’re doing this, think of something that makes you smile and turn the dial up on that feeling…
This embodiment hack quickly slashes cortisol levels (the stress hormone) by boosting testosterone and oxytocin levels in the body and promotes confidence before leading that event, retreat, group call, or meeting.
* Bonus Action: Listen to Amy Cuddy’s TED Talk entitled: Your Body Language May Shape Who You Are
2. Drop into a Queen Leader Meditation: While in your power pose, close your eyes, elongate your spine, take a deep breath, and breathe into your being as the bravest Queen version of yourself.
See what you see, taste what you taste, hear what you hear, and most importantly feel what you feel…
Slip your finger and toe slots into the finger and toe slots of that centered, compassionate, and grounded Queen leader, and really breathe in the feeling that you get when you are accessing and visualizing that state.
Lastly, while continuing to breathe deep, energetically place your Queen crown on your head, create a big X shape with your body, think of something that makes you smile, and breathe this sense of confidence and a fierce belief in yourself into all the cells of your body.
Turn the dial up on this feeling and imagine all of your cells fully yessing your brilliance!
3. Call in Your Queen Support Crew – Call in your energetic “Queen support crew” to guide you as you facilitate your community.
Think of big influencers in your life i.e. Oprah, Gandhi, Maya Angelou, your mom, your grandmother – anyone that feels like they are an inspirational support network for you, and call on their energy to guide you through any fear you might be experiencing.
Practice walking sovereignly around your environment, with their energy guiding you behind the small of your back, and feel your shift in posture and confidence.
And, the next time you facilitate your community, know that you don’t have to do it alone and that you can call on your Queen Power Crew to help support you through.
All right beautiful humans! I hope this 3 step process of deepening your intuition and strengthening your wise queen leadership has been helpful for you.
Keep taking the aligned next right action and doing the great work that you’re doing – you’re amazing and you’re ROCKING it.
Always with love,
