Join another Truth-Telling episode with Paula Prober on The Alchemist’s Heart Podcast! Did YOU grow up as an unidentified gifted child? Do you have regular moments of guilt when you can’t seem to wrangle everything in your life? Imagine the relief you’ll feel as we gently and easily clear up misconceptions about your beautiful rainforest mind (or that of someone you love).
Let’s blow the lid off of preconceived notions about giftedness! There is a uniquely beautiful, complicated and enriching way of thinking and being that I bet you’ll relate to.
It’s a day that I want to celebrate and share with YOU and ask for your love and support, because my very intimate and personal soul story, The Secret Glade, is featured in the Unleash Your Inner Magnificence Kindle book released this morning.
I keep pinching myself that my sacred story, along with twenty-nine others, has been published by five time best-selling publisher Linda Joy of Inspired Living Publishing—the boutique publishing company dedicated to ‘transforming women’s lives one story at a time’. Dreams do come true!
As you’ll discover Unleash Your Inner Magnificence is filled with soul-inspiring stories of women, including YOURS TRULY, who summoned the courage to own their magnificence and, in doing so, transformed their lives, relationships, businesses and/or health.
As each of us discovered, when you tap into your courage, and claim and bring forth your magnificence and gifts, it breeds self-confidence and serves as powerful inspiration for other women on the path. As you learn to let your inner light shine brightly, you will attract the perfect partners, experiences and opportunities.
It’s time to get this sacred and inspiring compilation of stories into the hands and hearts of women around the world.
Yes, really! As a gift of gratitude for your purchase of Unleash Your Inner Magnificence you’ll receive access to 25 gifts of gratitude for your personal development library from me and my co-authors as well as my publisher.
As my publisher Linda Joy shares in the Introduction… “I passionately believe that when women share their stories, truth, and wisdom with authenticity and vulnerability that they have the power to inspire and empower another woman on her journey of healing and self-discovery. The sacred stories in Unleash Your Inner Magnificence are from vibrant women who faced their fears, healed their hearts, and claimed their feminine power. My deepest desire is that their stories will inspire you to unleash YOUR inner magnificence.”
This beauty is only $2.99 on Kindle and I know you’ll be finding inspiration within 10 short minutes! Please let me know how Unleash Your Inner Magnificence touches your life, and what you think of the story I never thought I’d share publicly, The Secret Glade.

Did you know the meaning of the word inspire means, literally, to breathe life into?
Join the adventure with the magical letter “I” in our A to Z alchemy exploration through an incredible poem (some might even say incantation) by Oriah Mountain Dreamer. I challenge you to let the words soak into your soul and inspire your own relationship with your uniquely beautiful and potent self.
It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.
It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain! I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it, or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.
I know you bring your heart and soul forward to honor other worthy people, but do you do this for yourself? It’s time to learn the essential elements you need to honor your deepest truth and connect with your inner alchemist as we explore the letter “H” in our A to Z alchemy series.
The first and most important tool is honesty. Hiding from or ignoring the way you feel won’t protect you. It can prevent you from gathering the help and information you need to feel as healthy and whole as possible.
Bringing your awareness to what you are dealing with and how you feel from the inside out is incredibly empowering. Give yourself total permission to actually know how you feel.
Mommy guilt. You know how I encourage other moms to release their guilt? Well, I’ve been dealing with some of my own. Turns out, some mommies I know are already in full swing with back-to-school preparation. Their children have perfectly coordinated back to school outfits, reusable, earth friendly lunch bags, and all their school materials are lined up. Mine do not.
Now, either these mommies are incredibly eager for their little ones to move along into school, or they are way too organized. Or both. Either way, I’m not quite there. It’s not that I don’t look forward to the prospect of my firstborn entering school. I actually am. It’s that I don’t seem to find enough hours in the day, or even the desire, to do that level of preparation this far in advance.
What are the foundations of sustainable excellence in everything we do?
How can we go beyond surviving into thriving in uncertain times?

Have you experienced the pleasure of J.P. Cormier’s music?
I owe a debt of gratitude to my best friend for introducing me to Cormier’s album Another Morning. In the title track, this Canadian folksinger portrays a day in the life of an 83 year old man, declaring “…the days are growing longer, and I am much too old for anyone to hold.” This beautifully sung ballad prompted me to delve into the origins of its writing, discovering J.P. Cormier’s liner notes: “…I have seen the elderly left behind; by their families, by the deaths of their spouses, by life in general. We, the younger generations, should never let them feel alone. They are the ones who rocked us in our cradles, helped us take our first steps, and paved the way with their sacrifices for us to go about in the world trying to make our own small differences. They should always be remembered and respected for what they have done. This song is for them…”
