Soul Survival


DIVINE DESTINY IS A PATH NOT A PLACE. Soul Survival invites you to take a fresh look at corporate culture and your everyday work life. Author Lynne Leahy has demonstrated the power of Soul Survival principles for 30 years. " I was as low as a human being can go: a welfare mom, broke, sick, depressed, uneducated, addicted to drugs, filled with fear, hopeless, and helpless. Now I am President/CEO of a successful company, a devoted mother, and grandmother. I love and am loved by a multitude of friends. I live most days filled with peace, joy, and a sense of divine purpose. SOUL SURVIVAL IN CORPORATE AMERICA shows that financial success and spiritual growth are harmonious. There's a special place just for you. Rigorous honesty opens the soul for spiritual guidance. Gratitude is a soothing healer that transforms corporate culture. In Soul Survival mode, the corporate world is enriched by your presence and when you lay your head down each night you'll rest peacefully knowing that you are living a life of purpose and meaning. Soul Survival in Corporate America will help you find that life - the life of your dreams.

SURRENDER - It's the first step in creating the life of your dreams

Steve Jobs said "Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart." Whew - doesn't that feel like a relief?

Surrender is the easiest and the toughest step in the process of creating the life of your dreams. It is the easiest because all it requires is a simple shift in your thinking but it is toughest because your mind is so set on it's own beliefs and, whatever your mind believes will be created - is created. The only way the mind can change is by surrender. Just give it up. Only with surrender can you allow space for creating the life you want.

Life is in front of us. We have no knowledge about it - except "what we think - WE WILL CREATE."

So I surrender to my own spiritual center. The inner guide to peace and love. I follow my heart. Surrender helps me learn to trust the process.

"you are the master of your thought, the molder of your character and the creator of your destiny."

The Brain and Heart Connection

The Brain and Heart Connection
From the desk of Lynne Leahy, Fearless Vision Project.
FEARLESS VISION PROJECT Newsletter September 2, 2014

The Fearless Vision Project works best when you form an alliance with another person. When we’re fully engaged and emotionalized in our clear vision, we emit a spiritual frequency from our brain and heart that penetrates and permeates all space and time and brings forth to us everything that’s in resonance with the image we’re holding.

The frequency we emit is our personal electromagnetic frequency. Just like a radio station that sends out a signal, we send out a signal based on our dominating thoughts at a conscious and subconscious level.

Just imagine the way an apple seed attracts the nutrients it needs from the soil to grow its roots, and then once it sprouts above the ground the sun adds its magic and food through photosynthesis. Then, low and behold… the seed becomes an apple tree.

You too, will attract exactly what you need to realize your dreams when you really start to believe and feel your vision becoming a reality. It’s the clear and consistent vibration of your vision that brings forth your needs. You provide the seed, the universe provides the (sun) resources.


Therefore, you must now make your “new vision” inside your brain more real than the current results in your outside world. Then, and only then, will the universe begin to present its riches to you in the most convenient and efficient ways possible.

Creating happy/successful visions

FEARLESS VISION PROJECT Newsletter July, 2014

The first step in your visionary pursuit is allowing and acknowledging the VISION.

Visioning is a process of co-creation - joining deep inner desires with outer manifestation.

Visioning - it is always happening. The question is? What are you visioning? This is what you are creating.

Thomas Edison saw a glass bulb of some type giving off light, the Wright Bros. saw themselves in the air, Steve Jobs saw beautiful and easy-to-use technology, Larry Page dreamed of simpler computer code, Sara Blakely saw comfortable panty hose. And you have a dream (or vision) as well.

Visioning is not just about abundance and career. Many people use a visioning technique to create financial abundance but in the FVP we are focusing on more than abundance. Financial and material abundance without peace and happiness is unfulfilling.

How does visioning work? I like to compare it to daydreaming. When you are in a pleasant and uplifted mood your mind can drift toward many fantasies picturing either the extended version of current situation or a new and better version.

For a few minutes each day – let go of your cell phone mania and your constant need to be connected. Day dream. Let the vision come.

"Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while." Steve Jobs

Positive visioning is the most important ingredient to a successful life.

FEARLESS VISION PROJECT Newsletter August, 2014

Every so often I will send you updates of actual miracles that are happening in the lives of some of the Fearless Vision Project participants. It inspires me and I know it will inspire you.

Hines has been doing the Fearless Vision Project for about 18 months and his visions continue to become reality and he continues to update his book.

"The Fearless Vision Project has had a huge influence on my life and business. It has strengthened my ability to visualize in detail my future goals and success. The regimen of meeting regularly to share my vision book has stopped me from procrastinating. Now I am really working towards creating the dream life I always wanted."

At a recent FVP meeting Hines declared himself to be "one of the greatest artists of the 21st Century" and anyone who knows him and his art has no doubt that this is true.

You can see Hines in an FVP video on the FVP video page

How is the Fearless Vision Project working for others?

Before I share the 3 steps to put your visioning plan into action I want to give you an update on how the Fearless Vision Project is working for others. And I want to hear from you. How can I help you?

Have you read “The Top 5 Career Regrets”? (See Below) Does any of this ring true for you?

Inspired by this article, I decided to share the tools that have resulted in my ultimate success and happiness and freedom from job drudgery. I wrote and published the Fearless Vision Project workbook. Three groups started FVP meetings about 10 months ago, one in San Francisco and two in Marin. Early this year the forth group has started in Fairfield. Anyone can buy a workbook and start visioning for themselves or engage with others for support and encouragement. And right now you can get a FREE PDF copy of the FVP workbook by signing up for FVP Newsletter or, if you already signed up, simply email me – but please help spread the word by sending this email to others on your own email list. The power of visioning increases as more people participate.

How can you focus on Fearless Vision Project and take simple action steps to become a successful visionary in your own life?

Here are some of the results so far;

  • An artist who wanted to become a public speaker has started a speaking career, acquired a new car for his family, sold many works of art and has found amazing peace and happiness with his wife and son.
  • An up-and-coming business professional in San Francisco who visioned more money and a career that was in line with her personal values received extra money and has moved on to a new start-up venture which I am sure is going to be a big winner (check out judithroyal.com)
  • A spa manager who was working under a lot of stressful job pressure has become an independent medical spa consultant and just got her first paid consulting gig. She has transformed her health and it turns out the man she envisioned traveling with is her son and they are doing a partnership requiring travel.
  • A former HP executive whose life and career were disrupted by illness and the death of her husband has reclaimed previous business success and she has transformed her knowledge base into a management team-building value system.
  • Another FVP participant recently emigrated from Kenya wanted to enrich her life by sharing the huge material wealth of our country with family and friends in Kenya. She will soon be going to Kenya to start the first step of her project (ariseandshineafrica.com)
    • These are just a few of the miracles. They inspire me and I hope they inspire you. You can see a video interviewing some of these visionaries on the Fearless Vision Project Website.

      The "5 Regrets"

      Excerpt from Fearless Vision Project workbook, page 11

      In 2012, I came across a Harvard Business Review article* by a New York-based tech entrepreneur named Daniel Gulati. In it Gulati, who is a coauthor of the book Passion & Purpose: Stories from the Best and Brightest Young Business Leaders and a contributor to the HBR Guide to Getting the Right Job, published the results of his 2012 study in which he interviewed thirty professionals between the ages of twenty-eight and fifty-eight about what they regretted most about their careers to date. The diverse group of interviewees included a thirty-nine-year-old managing director of a large investment bank, a failing self-employed photographer, a millionaire entrepreneur, and a Fortune 500 CEO.

      1. I wish I hadn’t taken the job for the money. By far the biggest regret came from those who opted into high-paying but ultimately dissatisfying careers. Classic research proves that compensation is a hygiene factor, not a true motivator. What was surprising, though, were the feelings of helplessness these individuals were facing. Lamented one investment banker, “I dream of quitting every day, but I have too many commitments.” Another consultant said, “I’d love to leave the stress behind, but I don’t think I’d be good at anything else.” Whoever called them golden handcuffs wasn’t joking.

      2. I wish I had quit earlier. Almost uniformly those who had actually quit their jobs to pursue their passions wished they had done so earlier. Variable reinforcement schedules prevalent in large corporations, the visibility of social media, and the desire to log incremental gains are three reasons that the 80 percent of people dissatisfiedwith their jobs don’t quit when they know they should. Said one sales executive, “Those years could have been spent working on problems that mattered to me. You can’t ever get those years back.”

      3. I wish I had the confidence to start my own business. As their personal finances shored up, professionals I surveyed yearned for more control over their lives. The logical answer? To become an owner, not an employee in someone else’s company. But in the words of Artful Dodger, “Wanting it ain’t enough.” A recent study found that 70 percent of workers wished their current job would help them with starting a business in the future, yet only 15 percent said they had what it takes to actually venture out on their own. Even Fortune 500 CEOs dream of entrepreneurial freedom. Admitted one, “My biggest regret is that I’m a ‘wantrepreneur.’ I never got to prove myself by starting something from scratch.”

      4. I wish I had used my time at school more productively. Despite all the controversy currently surrounding student loans, roughly 86 percent of students still view college as a worthwhile investment. This is reflected in the growing popularity of college. In writing Passion & Purpose, my coauthors and I found that 54 percent of millennials have college degrees, compared to 36 percent of boomers. Although more students are attending college, many of the group’s participants wished they had thoughtfully parlayed their school years into a truly rewarding first job. A biology researcher recounted her college experience as being “in a ridiculous hurry to complete what in hindsight were the best and most delightfully unstructured years of my life.” After starting a family and signing up for a mortgage, many were unable to carve out the space to return to school for advanced study to reset their careers.

      5. I wish I had acted on my career hunches. Several individuals recounted windows of opportunity in their careers, or as one professional described, “now-or-never moments.” In 2005 an investment banker was asked to lead a small team in (now) rapidly growing Latin America. Sensing that the move might be an upward step, he still declined. Crushingly the individual brave enough to accept the offer was promoted shortly to division head and then to CEO. Recent theories of psychology articulate the importance of identifying these sometimes unpredictable but potentially rewarding moments of change, and jumping on these opportunities to nonlinearly advance your professional life.

      Watch for the next FVP Newsletter. I will be giving you the 3 step-by-step instructions for getting your priorities set and your life going in the direction of your happiness and dreams.
