As a mentor to heart-led entrepreneurs, I often get asked the question: how can I know what my purpose is? Having a sense of purpose and knowing what our true purpose is is not the same thing. I know. Until I came to understand that I was worthy of an abundat life being me, I ploughed my energy into causes that sought to justify my existence through worthy causes. Knowing our purpose is all about seeing ourselves and loving what we see.
It’s hard for me to take in, but this month, The Wish Tree Academy turns 2. It’s been 2 of the most incredible, life-changing years of my life. From a tribe of zero, we are now thousands. From a community of nil, we are now hundreds of Lightworkers, Coaches, Wellbeing facilitators, Artists, Activists, Healers of all kinds. When we let ourselves out of the prison of fear, the fear that comes from our past, we can finally be fully present. And THAT’S when the magic happens.
It’s only when we are present in the now that we can align with Love, Source Energy and be the vessel we have said YES to being in the world. That’s what I did when I said yes to my heart-led business, and that is what I want for you too.
I often speak to wellbeing facilitators who are exhausted, don’t make time for their own rest, put their clients’ needs before their own and drastically undercharge for their services. But there is NOTHING spiritual about any of that. It’s time to get our priorities right. Almost every time I am on a call with my magnificent coach, Lisa Nichols, she reminds me of the importance of serving from an OVERFLOWING CUP. Not a full cup. An OVERFLOWING cup. To her, and now to me, that means embracing abundance in ALL forms UNAPOLOGETICALLY so we can show up fully in our service.
When we allow ourselves remember who we truly are, when we detox from our addiction to what other people may think of us, we are truly free to create a breathtaking life and bring our gifts to the world.
A life where we are aligned, congruent with our purpose, mission, and message.
A life where we have nothing to prove.
A life where we have no one to please.
To me, this is the ultimate form of autonomy –the right condition for self-government.
The Paradigm of Separation that has controlled our every move for 3000 years, taught us to rush, push, prove, shut up and put up, ignore the messages of our bodies, the rhythms of our lives, our connection to Mother Earth, which means that one of the most powerful acts of defiance of the Patriarchy is, in fact, resting.
Are you finding it a challenge to navigate the emotional roller coaster that our journey of ascension can bring, the moment we say yes to our heart-led business? Do you anticipate a disaster instead of the best possible outcome? What if there was a way for you to hold the Light and show up lovingly for yourself through the shifts! What if it was possible for you to return to a higher vibe more quickly, and come to anticipate miracles in your heart-led business? Let’s practise Kyle Gray’s process for Holding the Light!
If perfectionism is breathing down our neck, there is a story of shame that still owns us which prevents us from SHOWING UP FULLY and serve from a place of true presence and love. That shame-story tells us we are not enough. That story tells us that we should fear judgment, rejection and ridicule if we allow our light to shine and show our true selves, if we speak up and step out.
So it holds us back. Learn how detoxifying from perfectionism will help you leap afraid and get you moving forward in your heart-led business today.
Today is a day of new beginnings, of shining our brightest! So today, and this weekend I invite you to join into a collective commitment to harness the light of the Solstice, the brightest day of the year, and say a resounding YES to moving forward with our heart-led business! But in order to do that, we need to shine a light on the fear that is holding us back. Our procrastination, our perfectionism, our fear of not being enough, of being judged as inadequate.
I don’t know about you, but there have been some pretty gigantic shifts happening lately, especially since the April Pink Moon.
Where we thought we had done ‘the work’, more keeps showing itself to us.
Where we have surrendered, we are called to surrender more.
Where we have let go, we are called to let go more.
Where we have been called to forgive, we are called to forgive more.
Mother Earth has been calling us home so we can lay down in her arms and be held. Held and supported. Embraced.
So all our resistance to the darkness can melt away in order for it to be healed.
So that we can be the Light.
“When we are nourished through love we can share our truth without fear”, was the message I received in a recent shamanic journey. “When you embody Mother Earth’s energy and heal your roots, you will rise to the sky and fly”. As Lightworkers, we are being called to ground ourselves, to make sure we pay attention to our roots, the stories we carry with us from childhood, so that we can grow tall and weather any storm.
