Ever feel like the people in your life just don’t get you?
Or like they’re trying, unconsciously or obviously, to keep you small?
Ever hear about the “bucket of crabs mentality?”
We humans get spooked when people in our life change - it upsets the energy dynamic, and makes us question their own choices… if we’re unaware and unwilling to talk about these things.
See, when you rise up and make creative moves or take bold action, people in your life might get scared that things will change for them… (or they get a big jealous that they’re not taking action on their own dreams.)
Most people don’t have the personal awareness to see their Crab Mentality.
So people all around you might be unconsciously lashing out, reacting and trying to keep you small so their world doesn’t change One. Little. Bit.
That’s why you’ve gotta trust your gut, name.
You’ve gotta fiercely tune into your own knowing, your personal truth, and your own sense of self.
AND, you’ve gotta surround yourself with people who are working on their own grand dreams who are going to cheer you on, not drag you down.
When you’re an artist, healer-teacher, coach, doctor, or creative entrepreneur, you’re always striving to do something different.
When you’re a high-achiever, you’re usually aiming to break barriers and create a new level of performance.
Are you surrounded by people who will hold your hand while cheering you on? People who will tell you it’s ok to screw up - and to keep going?
Every book, movie, painting, or important product you’ve ever loved or admired was created by someone with an idea that came out of the ether:
YOUR creative ideas, business, or unique innovations may seem too risky to someone else, but YOUR gut knows.
There’s something magic there.
And it’s worthwhile to pursue it.
Even if it doesn’t turn out exactly as we originally thought, we learn ourselves through the doing.
And we might just make something better than we ever dreamed.
This Friday, I’m leading a special training for your Creatrix soul, called:

We all have habits that get us stuck, and many of them originate from fear. Beginning from an unconscious drive for survival through fight, flight, or freeze reactions, our old habits can block our creative voice from shining.
They’re normal human responses, but to your Creatrix, your unique, productive soul, they are a waste of time, life force, and self-empowerment. When we get stuck by these blocks, we stunt our wisdom, productivity, and creativity.

To have an impact, do work that is uniquely you, and make a good living while doing it...it’s a dream for many of us.
Over the last 19 years as an independent, creative entrepreneur, I’ve been able to do work that I love, while helping people grow and heal, all while earning enough to support myself and my family. It is a huge blessing.

It’s no secret that most women harbor fear, shame, guilt, and some degree of curiosity around their sexuality. Today’s show addresses these issues and takes an honest, deep dive into all things sexual. Join us!
Olive Persimmon has written The Coitus Chronicles, which is described as a diary of your hilarious friend’s quest to heal her relationship with her body, sexuality, love, and her exploration of orgasm. The book is insightful, educational, and funny; I loved it from start to finish! In today’s conversation, we journey far and wide in our discussion of sexuality, STI’s, orgasm, BDSM, pick-up artists, foot fetish, and everything in between.
You can find the full show notes at www.alexandrajamieson.com/226.
