The most important investment a Creator can make is in their energy – it’s the primary tool we use to create. A Creator’s job is to transform nothing into something, which requires a mega infusion of energy. As entrepreneurs, innovators, and trendsetters, we harness our own energy to create the next version of reality. It’s no surprise Creators are often called magnetic, electric, and energizing -- we’re bursting with untapped energetic potential.

But there seems to be a glitch in the power grid: Creators are facing an energy crisis of epidemic proportions. From emotional dysregulation to burnout to psychosomatic symptoms, more and more Creators are losing their spark. According to HeartMath Institute, these issues are often caused by emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual energetic depletion.

In this candid conversation, we’ll explore the unique personality traits, environmental factors, and inborn sensitivities that make Creators particularly susceptible to energetic depletion, and share ways to prevent energy drains and boost our energy for healthy and sustainable creation. You’ll learn:
  • Why energy is so important  for Creators
  • Why Creators are particularly  susceptible to energetic depletion
  • Issues for Creators with  energetic depletion (emotional/physical illness, burnout, etc.)
  • How to restore and maintain your energy
