Paula Brown, self-proclaimed heartist and visual storyteller, joins Tonya Dawn Recla to discuss soulful innovation and entrepreneurship. Paula helps people understand their message through visual representation. For over 25 years, she has told stories and led new business teams in brand creation as the creative director in major ad agencies on both the East and West Coasts. Listen and she and Tonya discuss how to get in touch with your internal heartiest and share your own story with the world.
Hello everyone. This is Tonya Dawn Recla, your superpower expert. You all are in for a treat today. I know you can feel me glowing, and just the energy that’s coming off of this dialogue already, before we’ve even started is so powerful, because today’s guest is, she’s just this amazing blend of the artistic with the really rooted and grounded energies of creation, but also, this light.
She walks the world in a very different way than most people. She’s modeling that for other creative, artistic individuals, a step forward into their truth with this real, uncompromising, unwavering, solid antenna, if you will, this solid, kind of, rod in the middle that guides people to their own truth. It’s so needed right now and so welcome to really connect with people who can do that, who want to do that, are willing to be courageous enough to do that.
Paula Brown has a really extensive history in a lot of impressive arenas. Rather than be belaboring that, that will come through in our dialogue, but just know this, the image that I see of her is really of this amazing, light-filled being gliding through the world, but as others are able to gravitate into that space, take what they need and then move off to create their parallel universes. That work is essential. I know a lot of you resonate with that and see yourselves in that light.
So, kind of tuck in and settle back, because this is going to be a conversation specifically for you. Without further ado, please join me in welcoming Paula Brown to the show. Paula, welcome.
Hi, and thank you Tonya, for having the great experience to be part of your super power space.
Aw, thank you.
I just love the light that you give to all the world.
Aw, beautiful. Well, thank you for that affirmation, it’s a joint effort, right? It’s a very collaborative, like I was saying before we started the recording, it’s like its own living, breathing organism, and as it’s growing and blossoming, it’s like a … Feel like a proud parent watching it just evolve.
Let’s jump in and let the audience get to know you just a little bit better. What are your super powers?
I call myself a heartist.
That is a great question, because I love the plural of powers. I believe that I have many super powers. The core of my superpower is to find the extraordinary in the ordinary and that is finding purpose and showing purpose and showing heart essence, because, I call myself a heartist, and that includes many, many different levels of vibrations and solutions.
I have superpowers of telepathy, because I am also talking to nature, the heart of nature. I talk heart-to-heart to nature, and animals, and people. I draw out, literally and figuratively, the purpose and dreams and visions of people, corporations. I have this artistic talent of being able to draw out quickly, the essence and the core purpose of people. That’s my main superpower out there, is to help people show their superpowers. I’m an igniter of that.
I truly believe that the heart is the masterpiece of everybody’s story, so I’m a visual storyteller. It’s just been amazing to see aha moments out there. I’m also have the talents of teaching and communicating this to other people and using both mind and a little bit of alternative strategies to get people to their spaces and places. My super talents are many. I use many tools, as do most of us.
