Electric Inspiration from Harriet Minter
Below we talk with Electric 9 Leader and Coach, Harriet Minter, about her journey toward letting go, her spirit animal (a Shetland Pony!) and her hopes for the women participating in the upcoming Electric 9 course.
The Electric 9 is a transformational group coaching programme that leads you through the 9 stages to becoming your most vibrant and powerful self – your Electric Woman. We are inviting 12 women from around the world to gather in a dynamic virtual group, led by CTI trained Electric Woman coaches. The next course begins on October 29th.
WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO JOIN ELECTRIC WOMAN?
I kept meeting these incredible women who seemed to have some sort of glow about them and I couldn't quite work out what it was. They were confident and excited about the world but also open, engaging and honest. When I asked them they'd all done some form of Electric Woman coaching, so I thought there had to be something in it and there was!
WHAT DOES BEING ELECTRIC MEAN TO YOU?
Operating at your brightest and lightest. It's that feeling when everything seems to align, you can see all the options on the horizon and you have absolute faith in yourself to manage anything that comes along. Most importantly it's about feeling as though you understand and appreciate yourself and know how to make the most of your life - no regrets, no fears and no doubts.
WHAT IS A HOT TOPIC OF DISCUSSION FOR YOU RIGHT NOW?
Letting go and asking for help; two things I eternally struggle with! I like to think I'm very "go with the flow" but I'm a secret control freak so I've really had to work on that! For me the lesson has always been that when I let go of how I expect something to look and instead just relax into how it will be I always end up pleasantly surprised. The only way to do this of course, is to ask for help and allow others in to support you.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
Being able to honestly say that I like myself enough to not worry what others think of me.
WHO IS AN ELECTRIC WOMAN YOU ADMIRE AND WHY?
Oh god, all of them! The fabulous Nikki Armytage-Foy really helped me shake up old patterns and behaviours and continually holds the space for me to ask for more of myself and my life. I love Vanessa's wisdom, knowledge and ability to really get to the point of an issue. Every woman I did E9 with was truly amazing and I'm in awe of them all and I still go back to them when I need help.
WHICH MISS GUIDED DO YOU / HAVE YOU STRUGGLED WITH AND WHAT IS YOUR REMEDY TO OVERCOME THIS?
I'm a joyous mix of Miss Perfectionist, Miss Punisher and Miss Someday - it's great fun!
WHAT DO YOU HOPE FOR WOMEN TAKING PART IN THE NEXT ELECTRIC 9 PROGRAMME?
That they find the space and time to look after and prioritise themselves. That they uncover answers to questions they maybe didn't know they had. And finally that they find connection between each other and a tribe of women they can call on forever after.
WHAT IS YOUR SUPERPOWER OR SPIRIT ANIMAL?
My superpower is my intuition and perceptive ability. My other superpower - I'm pretty good at making things happen without really having a plan for how they're going to happen. Plus I don't think small, so when I decide something is going to happen it usually happens in a big way. I always joke that my spirit animal is a Shetland Pony - short, stubborn and with a really great mane.
WHAT IS THE BEST PIECE OF WISDOM YOU'VE RECEIVED?
Proceed until apprehended!
