THE BUSINESS SIDE

I am a writer, an artist, a strategist and a relationship and appreciation specialist.

As a business consultant with over 14 years in the real estate industry, knowing how to help others build their businesses and strengthen systems and processes is something I enjoy doing. As a business owner myself- I understand the challenge and critical importance of creating systems that work while nurturing and maintaining relationships.

I believe that creating Affirmative Business Solutions can be extremely effective and one of my favorite things to do is to show individuals, entrepreneurs and small business owners how to activate a Gratitude Practice- it’s an amazing process of shifting focus, being extremely intentional and knowing that the power of our positivity and caring nature truly does make a difference and always returns multiplied.

In addition to consulting, I also enjoy exploring business challenges and opportunities both personally and professionally. Interestingly enough, many solutions are found  where they are least expected.

As a writer and an artist – I am honored to have created a business and a life on the belief that we are always creating and have the opportunity to make an impact where ever we go- regardless of our history. There is something inside of each and every one of us- unique, individual and beautiful and the gifts that we give and receive when we share it with others is immeasurable…and being able to support my customers with amazing resources is a win-win!

THE PERSONAL SIDE

Serenity means to be calm or tranquil so – Serenitys Way denotes a BEingness, a way of being in the world- having to do with peace, authenticity and the way of least effort.

I grew up with domestic violence as a way of life, so being in a tranquil and calm environment was not my experience at all… and in my adult years, I found myself in the middle of circumstances and places I never thought I would be.

Through my own path of growth and discovery,  I have come to know who I am and I absolutely know that there is nothing that love and acceptance cannot heal. I know that there is a place inside of each one of us that continually reminds us to grow and become …

This was the message I wanted to share with the women of the Gateway Battered women’s shelter. I love affirmative writing and over several months there had been an undeniable stirring within me. While writing, I had the idea to leave greeting cards at the shelter so the women could be reminded of who they really are.

I wanted to leave messages of encouragement- messages that would remind them that they are not their past and that their circumstance did not define them. I wanted to leave this message in a beautiful and powerful way.

The project however sat on the back burner as I researched artists to create the front of my cards. When I couldn’t come up with anyone I went to the store and bought canvas, paint and brushes.

With a little help, love, and encouragement from a few of my dear friends– In 2015, Serenitys Way was born. I am deeply honored and excited to share my heart’s work- Having been raised with domestic violence for 12 years while growing up- I know that the messages truly come from my own souls healing journey~

My cards and artwork have expanded since the beginning, there are now almost 100 designs and they can be found in several book stores and purchased here online. 

 

MY AGREEMENTS WITH ME ~ A Journey of Personal Reflection

Beginning January 6, 2019 we will go on a journey of personal reflection. It will be an individual journey and an opportunity to notice yourself. This is not a test and there are no grades, in fact you get to be right about everything. If you are ready for growth, movement, expansion or forward action, you are welcome to join us. This is your personal invitation. 

We will dive into “My Agreements with Me”- We will create our own personal vision and we will be accountable to it,  ourselves and our results on a weekly basis. We will question, explore and discover what is working and moving us forward and what is holding us back. For those who would like more guidance, clarity and coaching, there will be a opportunity to have that as well. 

If there is any part of you that is stirring, I hope that you will listen and take action. All that you need to do is show up here and go to the “My Agreements with Me” tab

 

 

Sincerely,

Sylvia Castillo
