Why it is not the News Feed Algorithm changing our culture but The Divine Feminine
Have you noticed? Everything happens twice, first in your mind, then in reality. There is absolutely nothing between your thought and the reality that follows once you pursue it (you may call it a “goal”). For most of the time when you fail a goal, there is a space, a void you allow between the birth of your idea and the implementation of that thought, a waiting time called psychological time. Some people even allow this space to expand and the waiting space turns into frustration or even desperation…Inspiration is in short supply. When you meet somebody or read their story Inspiration strikes, the void is removed, you step into your own power, and make things happen!
It is the story that you tell yourself when nobody is listening that shapes your life. Nothing else. The standards of your thinking determine the standards of your life. In the end, or right from the beginning, it is the Realm of Thought that matters.
We have so much of this psychological time on our hands! Historically, generations after generations of creative people kept their hands occupied instead of dropping this useless baggage and freeing themselves. Letting go of this waiting time, gives you the inspiration to start building a better reality instead. This is when your mind takes a focused approach to your own reality, a very narrow, laser like light into the bigger picture, which penetrates any imaginary obstacle, Valyrian Steel or not. As we sent Sovereign to press, I am confident, there is abundant evidence in this June Edition!
Sovereign starts this Summer with a colliding bang of Supernovas, and it is filled with terrific new business solutions and intriguing stories that frankly, man or woman, you will find it hard not to relate. I hope you will enjoy this cocktail of self-awareness and profound social awakening of highly educated, creative women – an extraordinary wave of emotional intelligence.
Through coincidence (let’s admit, is the Universe conspiring) rather than intention, after launching the first Swiss Edition, Elaine Pringle-Schwitter, our Corporate Strategic Partnerships Consultant Switzerland, passionately advocated for a local online group, Women Rock Switzerland, and their founders, Denise and Michelle, to be featured this month’s edition.
Elaine’s mission was to capture the unique essence of not one, but two women who are not standard models, in a single shot! Camera lens, lights, make-up artists and holding hands included- the perfect picture was shot that day to capture their dual beauty and charismatic energy.
What a staggering image!
Credit must go to Elaine’s photographic talent. Behind Elaine’s camera lens is a creative genius which opens a certain kind of door that you never have entered before, a door to your own heart. You can read her column ‘Through The Camera Lens’ each month and in this edition she brings you “Her Voice” ( page 106).
So, I want to take an unapologetic bow for June’s cover to Elaine Pringle and Darie Nani, our Artistic Director – who’s combined effort captured the essence of Women Rock Switzerland.
So who are the women who rock Switzerland?
Denise is a Fulbright Scholar, author, and vocational psychologist and she has been gracing world class stages, speaking in over 30 countries. Being a certified teacher, she’s developed real expertise in human development, lifelong learning, and maximizing human potential. She uses emotional mastery to unlock the power of human hearts!
Michelle (who’s dad passed away suddenly just over a year ago) is building on a legacy that her father created while leading a communications company in the USA for almost four decades. A national-level college athlete, she began her working life as a sports coach at an Ivy League university in the USA. As fêted as she was, Michelle worked harder than she needed it to, and she is been ranked in the top 1% of Executive Search professionals in North America. Give her five minutes of your time and she you will give you the world!
When Elaine introduced Michelle and Denise, they loved the idea of sharing the opportunity with their members and decided to select 1% of their group to contribute to this edition. They selected 40 rare female mavericks who are self-leading and deliver their unique solution to health, wealth, wellbeing, art, tech, travel, communication and beauty, all the while enjoying motherhood.
I am excited to see how they will each adapt to a new, magnificent version of themselves, as compassionate mothers and exceptional women, opening up the home of their big dreams to a wider diversity of professional women. To be featured in Sovereign is to commit to building a world that is inclusive for both men and women of different philosophies , ages, countries and cultures, for the betterment of all.
This is how I imagined Sovereign to be: a limitless vault for future memories from millions of people who are closing the achievement gap together. When you are a Purposeful Leader, it is not about standing up for yourself anymore but is about an unwavering belief in those you lead, building them up into confident creatives who can deliver their unique solution.
If you are waiting to board your flight and reading June Sovereign in either British, Swiss or German Airports lounges, be ready to face the first wave of 40 Women Who Rock Switzerland. They’ve arrived! As you discover them one by one, you will enjoy their resolute confidence, graceful laser determination to be seen and have their voice heard. Please take advantage of the rich media features and connect with them while still reading their story.
What better way to inspire a younger generation of women, our daughters and granddaughters, who, yes, are born to lead, to build their personal and professional success?! Can we, at least, agree that if we really want to inspire them to be more, we must publish their mothers’ and grandmothers’ story first, showing the world what they are made of?
Exceeding the word count again, but I have to say this before I dive into July’s edition: Social edification helps you make a significant difference in your professional game, and it is not the news feed algorithm that matters but the realm of thought shared with millions of people we can inspire together, people who might take a leap of faith and become the Sovereigns of their own life. So, ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Women Who Rock Switzerland!
