Amy Blakeslee is now a Business Energy Coach who helps conscious leaders quickly increase their impact while loving what they do. She is also the best-selling author of Awakening Through Anxiety: A Journey to Finding One’s True Self. Before that, she had a very envious corporate career working in IT leadership for one of the most admired companies in the world. Over time, however, she found that it was not in alignment with who she really is, at the soul level.
Amy joined us as a guest panelist for our most recent Answer the Call to Conscious Leadership event where we explored how to reconnect with your authentic self.
I open up saying, “Nothing should stay a secret, especially if it’s working.” I imagine that the approach Amy takes, and helps her clients take, seems a bit outlandish in a corporate setting to some.
As corporate leaders, it’s imperative to not only keep an open mind, but also to validate the experiences of others, and accept, and furthermore, embrace, diversity in gender, race, thought, and belief.
Not everyone believes in a divine purpose. Not everyone believes in divinity. As a leader, you don’t have to embrace this for yourself, but if you are resisting it, evaluate why – at a minimum. So, if you didn’t get to attend this month’s event live, join C3 today and give the replay a watch. You will gain a better understanding of a different belief system that has yet to be embraced and normalized.
- How does our energy impact others?
- What is the dominant emotion in corporate America and how can we shift it?
- What is a good Spirituality 101 book?
- Where can one turn to look for some scientific evidence?
- What is the difference between energy work and shadow work (as promoted as essential for all leaders by Conscious Leadership author and Whole Foods founder John Mackey)?
- Where do you start when you want to reconnect to your authentic self?
- How do you become ready for your purpose?
- What are the benefits of balancing the masculine and feminine in ourselves and in corporate culture?
- How can we expose more C-suite leaders to the practice of energy work?
- What role does trauma have in reconnecting to your authentic self?
- Is it always safe to be your authentic self?
- What are the challenges leaders experience that might signal a need to reconnect to self?
- What are the outcomes of better understanding and utilizing our energy as we go about elevating corporate consciousness?
Another key quality of a conscious leader is to meet people where they are at. Although some of you may not be open to Amy’s approach for yourself, I am just as sure that many of you are already delving into energy work, though you may be keeping it your secret.
It’s time we pulled this secret practice out into the light.
Who among us is playing in the quantum? (I am!) What are your thoughts about it? Do you find that you are resisting it? Do you feel differently about this belief system than you do about other belief systems that co-exist with your own? Is there another angle of reconnecting to your authentic self that you want to explore? Join C3 where we give you the content that conscious leaders need today.
