Welcome, scrumptious ones!
I’m so very glad you’re here.
Did you wonder why you were invited?
Because you get it.
Because you understand that acting-as-if leads to living as if and your house is the set design for your dreams. Because you have a different life to mine.
Because wisdom without successful application is useless.
I know how Intentional Nesting works.
I’m proof that it works.
Hey, I have an Oscar to prove it! (See video above lol)
I just have to iron out the wrinkles of applying it to living a life that’s different to mine.
I don’t believe in blueprints, so I refuse to create a one size fits all, 7-steps-to-domestic-bliss type offering.
Which it makes it a tad more difficult to take a philosophy that has deep individualization at its core, and make it workable for many.
By participating all out in The Nest project, you will be doing something life changing for yourself and for others. Win/win. Yay.
What you will get:
The Chance To Make Friends With Your Home like never before.
Think of the very best outcome you could wish for … and what three months of house-devotion-witchery-attention could do to change your life and how you live it, and get you moving toward ThatThing.
From betterment-tweaks to an complete clean-slating, you’ll dictate the direction and together, we’ll throw everything I know about Intentional Nesting at it.
A Copy of The Intentional Nesting Masterclass and book
In addition to all the downloadable materials you’ll get during the Nest project, you’ll also get the published final results. The Masterclass will probably be available by the end of July. You’ll be notified by both email and FB messenger when it’s ready for you.
I have no date as yet for the book, but it’s going to happen, and when it does, you’ll get a copy.
You’ll get started (or finally get going) on all the clearing out and house witchery and imprinting that you’ve been putting off, or just reading-and-nodding about. Momentum builds faster when there’s a group behind it. You will get to wack winces that have been sucking your energy for ages.
Individual attention :
You will get individual attention as close to sending me a ticket to visit your home as is possible online. I’m devoting the next three months of my life to this project. That means you.
If you do the work, you will see progress in the next three months. You may not achieve your end goal, but you will feel like you’ve got a head start and more importantly, you will know how to keep it going.
A circle of friends and a virtual cheering squad :
When women circle, magic happens. The group energy is a vital component.
We are not isolated. We are all intrinsic and vital pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle, and we do better when we connect. This group will become your virtual supporting cast, the backing singers to your Solo Show Stopper, the ensemble you invite to share the ovation.
You’ll get ME :
I know this stuff inside and out. I am a potent coach. My attention is exquisite and houses are my toolbox.
I’ve had clients tell me that just knowing they were going to talk to me was enough to get them tending their homes in a whole new way.
What you won’t get :
- A housekeeping system. There are plenty out there and I’m happy to point you towards the couple I know work. I don’t do blueprints and systems. I do rituals and tending. There’s a big difference, which you get, obviously, or you wouldn’t have landed here.
- A spotless, clutter-free and meticulously organized house. That might happen, if that’s what you want, but it’ll never be that way if it’s not your style. Also, no-one actually lives in a showroom.
- 1001 hints and tips on how be Martha Stewart, or life-hack everything, or learn to like housework. I don’t even like housework. That’s not what this is about.
- Instructions on how to clean stuff. That’s what the googles are for. Although no doubt someone in the group will have some wise words to share if you ask.
- Coaching on your whole life. We’re working strictly through your nest. We change the outsides, to strategically affect the insides. Coaching works the other way round. There may be some of that, but it’s not the focus.
- Mollycoddling and shaming. We are where we are. There’s no judgement. AND if you decide to join, you won’t be allowed to wallow in the unhelpfulness that’s kept you stuck/frustrated/small till now. My focus in entirely on helping you do what you can, with what you have, that’ll move you closer to what you want.
How it’ll run (aka the Storyboard so far):
We will begin on April 1st and end on June 30th.
I have created a Facebook group just for this project.
The Nest is where most of our conversations and sharings will happen. This is how you can take me on a virtual walk round your home, if you like. This is where the magic of community will happen.
I really hope that you’ll join us there. (Details at the bottom of the page)
I know some of you prefer to spend little-or-no time on FB, and I totally get that. I’m happy to send the lessons to you via email. You’ll be able to reply, obviously, with any questions and your feedback. Indicate your choice at the bottom of this page.
However, understand that you’ll be missing out on a potent way of getting the most out of this collaboration because you won’t be seeing what everyone else is doing/experiencing. I’d hate for you to miss out on that.
I plan to make the group secret on March 31st. You have till then to decide if you want to join us there.
The FB space will disappear on July 2nd. You’ll have plenty of warning.
I plan to deliver a lesson or principle every couple of days.
All lessons will be published both in The Nest itself and emailed to those who choose that option.
They will be delivered either in written form (a downloadable PDF) or an audio file via Vocaroo.
You will have plenty of time to read/listen and begin implementing. There’s no rush and no exam at the end. You’ll be able to circle back and revisit stuff as often as necessary or desired.
Some things you’ll find you’re doing already. Some things will take time to integrate. Somethings you’ll decide simply don’t work for you. It’s all a work in progress. And we’ll have three months.
I plan to show up at least 5 days a week.
Likely more. Never less. Probably quieter on Sundays.
I have the basic lessons set already but there’s soooo much more material. All of it can-and-should be tweaked and tailored to fit your life and your dreams, if you tell me what you need.
The more you participate, by asking questions and sharing experiences, the more I can give you. You just have to show up, do the work, and start the conversation about what’s working or what still needs working on.
Above all, I want to help you create a home that feels like it’s on your side. Less saboteur. More supporting.
I want to show you how to imprint evidence all around your home that hints that you’ve already been where you’ve always wanted to go, so it’ll magnetize you into your future and you can get there faster.
When you have clarity about where you’re going and what you’re going to take with you, you can easily release what’s been anchoring you in the past.
You will probably feel a lot more joy in the maintenance of your nest. You won’t have to choose between housework and whatever else you’d rather be doing, because they’ll both be pointing in the same direction.
Housecare will feel less tedious, less like drudgery, less like a ‘have to’.
And that alone could change everything.
What I’m asking of you :
I’m asking you to devote the next three months to exploring ways to turn your home into a metaphorical magic wand, and for your candid feedback on the implementation of Intentional Nesting.
I’m asking you to read the material, do the work, and lemme know how it goes.
What I’m going to give you :
Is everything I have. From now till the end of June.
