Speaking out against FEAR based marketing tactics used in the Self-development industry.... and what I believe true Leadership to be, Feminine Leadership.
I am ok. I am enough. I am whole. I am happy.
When I had this breakthrough a few years back, all I wanted to do was share it with the world and anyone out there battling with depression, anxiety, and overwhelm, unfulfilled, unhappy, frustrated, desperate, lonely, isolated, alone...
Anyone about to give up, about to jump off the cliff....
I had just come from the top of the mountain and I wanted people to know that there was a new day dawning, a new way of being in the world, where people like us could really live and thrive...
I had gone to the edge of the cliff and had thought that taking the leap of faith was the most difficult part, but what I have learned is that walking your own path in integrity is one of the most challenging parts of being awake and alive in this modern world.
it is also...
THE most absolute rewarding thing any one person can do.
Sometimes it's difficult to know what to do with your insights....today however, I'm speaking about something very important.
All the true Spiritual teachers I have encountered in my life did not sell me into their "program" or convince me to follow them on a spiritual journey.
I have always been called by my own inner knowing.
Every time I have taken a risk, overcome my fears, or stretched myself beyond my comfort zone, it has been because I was ready, I felt the inner pull, and the teacher had arrived.
But I took the next step of my own volition.
They did not ask me to whip out my credit card before getting off phone or give me a time limitation to answer my own calling or expect me to act in a way that was beyond my own certainty, in fact maybe just the opposite.
True growth and inner peace come from your own inner calling that is leading you to your own unique alignment with your Soul's Purpose.
Not mine... not hers.... not his....
YOU MUST LEARN TO DO YOUR THING.
For many years I have not felt comfortable with what I have witnessed in the coaching industry (that I have become a part of). I quit the "industry" a while back. I unsubscribed from all of the emails from all of the industry leaders.
I decided to walk my own path, be in integrity, and continue to offer authentic support founded in truth, reality, and love. I continued to write about my life experiences and share my art. I continued to learn, heal, expand.
In certain circles I call myself the ANTI-COACH. I have not wanted to contribute to the icky feeling that I have felt. I don't want to align with what I have seen of the "coaching industry".
I don’t believe in selling transformation, at least not when it comes to Spiritual Awakening.
Sell me a widget, but don't sell me Feminine Empowerment. Guide me to my own empowerment, one that is in alignment with the core of my being.
You can't be convinced to pursue your own dreams, but you can block your inner desires with fear and self-criticism... and do not be fooled by others using fear to uplevel your lifestyle!
We are all here facing our own humanity and meeting each other here on the seeking spiritual path to happiness and the centered peace that comes with our own individual 'enlightenment'.
I believe we are all called to our own great awakening within, I don’t believe I could bring you to it if you hadn’t already showed up on the ledge contemplating taking the leap into the unknown.
I don't push anyone off the edge or coax you to jump, that part you have to do on your own.
I don't use fear based marketing and shame tactics that I see other "feminine leaders" employ that use the emotional pull of envy or jealousy to make you feel bad about yourself in order to sell you something that will "make you feel better."
I’m not going to teach you how to sell yourself.
I’m going to teach you how to love yourself.
I stand for all individuals to overcome their strife and limitations by following their own unique divine guidance. But that can be almost impossible to do when you don't even know what the sound of YOUR OWN VOICE sounds like. And that is where a coach or a healer COMES IN.
Always trust your gut. If something feels icky. There’s something icky going on.
If someone tells you their offer is urgent and going away that might be the case, but there is no urgency when you arrive at the threshold of your own great awakening, and no Shaman or Healer is going to make you hand over your credit card "or else".
It wasn't the 10 years of therapy or all the self help courses I took or books I read, it was focused one on one work with a powerful healer that helped me to source my own energy that changed my life!
My most proud achievement of the past year wasn't how much money I made, but that everything I do, in life, in business, in love and relationships is an expression of my Soul's calling and creative impulse.
It wasn't about the followers on instagram but that the people I work with experience real and lasting beneficial change in their lives, and most of all they feel a greater connection to their own Divinity....
My biggest personal milestone this year was seeing on of my art pieces hanging in on a gallery wall after being accepted into a juried art show. And then I gifted another art piece to a friend who had encouraged me as a photographer and writer before I could claim that for myself.
Please, do the something that you are here and meant to do, and do it because it calls you, not because someone convinced you that is what you should do, or you want to be like her, or them, or me!
YOU, DO YOUR THING.
There is a new movement emerging in the world, are you on the bandwagon or are you walking your own path?
Join the movement. Walk your own path.
Once, I had been disconnected from the magic of being alive. Today, I know magic and see magic in this world.
When was the last time you believed in magic?
This is an opportunity for all of us, at the global and individual level, to step up, move out of the past, and learn to create the future that we all know is possible.
I now understand the words that were whispered in my ear while running in the rain many years ago...
"Be a vessel of God's love, be a vessel of God's will. Be a conduit of love vibration, heal with your energy."
But how will I know? "You do not need to know." replied the voice....
I had been tuned into all the sadness of the world around me and didn't know my own voice, my inner guidance. I didn't understand what benefit at all could come from me honing my sensitivities, because I was too emotional, too sensitive, too sad, too serious....
This gift isn't meant for burdening sadness it is meant as a catalyst for change.
I no longer see my aloneness as being so, I stand out for a purpose. So do you. Join the Explore Deeply Movement, speak your truth, receive your inner voice.
