Name of Your Business

Meg Francis Coaching.

How Does Your Work Enable You to Connect to and Fulfill Your Life Purpose/Passion?

My passion is helping others feel empowered to express their authentic selves in everything they do. I find tremendous joy when I see someone find that “aha!” moment. I know the feeling of being stuck in life and I have explored multiple ways to find freedom. It is my mission to guide others to find a similar freedom for themselves.

Who Is Your Ideal Client and Why?

My ideal client is women, ages 30-70 who are: going through a transition and unsure what to do next, want to feel more joy in their life, want to experience deeper relationships with themselves and others, are looking for a sense of belonging and connection.

What Unique Offerings Do You Provide?

I use many tools to help my clients. I am a certified Spiritual Sexual Awakening and Healing practitioner, which helps men and women to release trauma that has been held in the body. I teach about Shamanic journeys and perform soul retrievals. I am an experienced intuitive facilitator of healing and have many more tools in my toolbox, including mediumship and card readings. I will use whichever ones are needed for my clients on any given day.

Who Was Your Role Model Growing Up? How Did That Person’s Actions Impact You?

My greatest role model would be my mom. She was a single mom and has always stayed solution focused in any crisis. By the time she was 25 years old, she was married and divorced with 3 young children. She maintained a 3 bedroom house with a huge yard, worked long hours and always made us feel loved and cared for. She might not have always felt like she knew what she was doing, but she sure looked like it. Though we differ in many ways, I learned how to embrace my inner strength from my mom.

Favorite Place to Escape and Refuel?

Western Massachusetts (where my mom lives on 300 acres of farmland)

Top 3 Ways to Treat Yourself to Self-Care?

1. Wake up with a smile and a sip of water.
2. Take days off when needed.
3. Dance.

How Do You Express Yourself Creatively?

I love big artsy earrings. In addition to that, there is a pretty large craft room in my house, filled with paints, canvases, 2 sewing machines, bins of fabric, glue, markers, and so much more. I love creating…anything.

Last Memorable Book You Read and Why?

Tantra Goddess: A Memoir of Sexual Awakening, by Caroline Muir- While reading about Caroline’s life and her experiences with self exploration, I found myself give myself greater permission to explore different parts of me. It made me rethink what kind of romantic partnership I might want (or not want). Having met Caroline in person, I could feel her zest for life that came from a long life of trauma and recovery of self.

Favorite Movie and Why?

Under the Tuscan Sun – There was a time I feared stepping out on my own to run a business. This movie is a great example that anything is possible, but you have to try. And though it might not always be easy, following your passion is worth every bit of struggle. I am no longer trapped by fear.

“Go to” Quote or Mantra that Grounds You?

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anais Nin. I have worked for many years with women in recovery from addiction and sex trafficking. My specialty is helping women recover from trauma. And in the world of recovery, a lot of people say “when the pain is great enough, they will return.” I can say this is true not only from the people I work with, but from my own life experiences.

Accomplishment Are You Most Proud of?

Raising 2 empowered young women (ages 22 ands 15) who still come to me for advice, friendship, comfort and snuggles. Many people have witnessed the relationship the 3 of us have and call it magical. I would agree.

Best Lesson Learned in Life So Far?

Always honor your inner tug. (that thing that keeps calling you to say YES! to life).

Advice to Younger Self?

You will make it, no matter what because you were made to be amazing!

What Do You Love Best About Yourself (physical trait or personality characteristic) and Why?

I love my laugh and my ability to remain calm in stressful situations. My sister-in-law once called me the “calming agent.”

Finding Your Flow

Finding Your Flow

You know that feeling when you are totally in sync with the world around you?

You trust that the Universe has your back and everything is happening in divine order.
You have an abundance of energy and feel inspired to spread positivity everywhere you go.
You believe with your whole heart that everything you want and need is already flowing to you and that life is amazing!
Perhaps it’s been a while since you’ve felt this way, especially after the year we’ve had. But it is that very state of flow that I’m aspiring to this year. A flow state, also known as being in the zone, is when a person is performing an activity in which he/she is fully immersed with energized focus, full involvement, and pure enjoyment. To be in the flow means that you are consciously being in harmony with whatever it is you are doing in that moment. Sounds wonderful doesn’t it? But that begs the question…how do we fall out of the flow?
The culprit is resistance. What we resist, persists. We are all made up of energy and energy is in constant motion… so it makes perfect sense that when we resist something, things will stop flowing naturally. When you start to feel out of the flow, simply ask yourself if you’re forcing something that doesn’t align with your true intentions. Determine what is blocking you from moving forward. Most of our blockages come from lingering limiting beliefs that were shaped in our formative years (between ages 0-7) and reside in our subconscious mind for years to come until we uncover and unblock them.
The good news is that each new moment provides us the opportunity to shift our mindset and change course. By mindfully bringing awareness to our thoughts and feelings we can significantly modify our behaviors. This shift helps us make the transition to a place of allowing – a state of mind where we trust things to unfold, as they are meant to unfold – and find our way back into balance and harmony. Once you shift your mindset and align with these energy patterns, it can still be challenging to stay in the flow because life happens and we get knocked off balance from time to time. But don’t give up.
Take a quiet moment to tap into your intuition and listen to your inner guidance. Notice any physical signs from your body that may be showing signs of distress and breathe slowly and mindfully into those areas. Pay attention to your emotions and then consciously choose to take actions that bring you back to center. Finding and staying in the flow is a continual practice. It’s a state of evolution but returning to it time and time again is worthwhile. I look forward to my practice of living in the flow and hope you enjoy the journey of your own personal growth and expansion in the days, weeks and months to come.
High Vibes and Grateful Heart, XO, Jenn
