I shared these words with my circle training subscriber list this week and decided to share them here too. Commitment tests us all, not just women who are stepping up to be leaders in their community or business. The reason why I'm sharing this on the blog is because I know that any woman reading this will relate on some level.
No matter how much we are encouraged and supported, some of us will not take the next step. We feel unworthy or our lives are just too busy to do just one more thing for ourselves. We are all on unique pathways and we are all at different stages and it's totally okay to be scared, to not be ready and to not trust what lies ahead. I think about how sad it would be if we were always being the roadblock or handbrake to our own joy, happiness and life purpose. My intention for this wild and precious life I have is to THRIVE, not just SURVIVE. It's an intention I uphold for every woman I cross paths with. Life isn't easy, but it can be joyful.
Let’s get serious about feminine leadership. It’s not easy. The moment you commit to the big C (commitment that is) it is a soul defining & empowering moment & it's also terrifying. I have to be honest with you, this pathway is not for the fainthearted. You will be stretched, you will be transformed and you will morph in ways you never thought were possible. You will have good days, you will have not so good days...BUT you will be held, you will be supported, you will be encouraged and you will be inspired. You must believe it. You don't have to do this alone.
Why do I know this? Because I have experienced this multiple times every year for years. Every time I step up, I feel the change. Every time I say yes to myself, something in me shifts and I'm never who I was the moment before, ever again. I have had shocking head pounding migraines, spiritual flu and growing pains every step of the way and never more than I have had this year. Each of us is unique and this might not be how your adventure unfolds. I'm not trying to scare you, not at all.
Despite all this I am the happiest I have ever been in my life. I see potential and endless possibility. I am positive about the future without exactly knowing why. I'm cool with that.
I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life - and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do. - Georgia O'Keeffe
I want you to know this: I never stop myself from continuing. I regroup, smudge, cleanse, soak, clear, reiki, ground, breathe, dance, sing, cry, laugh, shout etc whatever it takes to get back on track. I know this is part of the process so I embrace every part of it, perhaps I even embrace the shadow more than the light. I know that I'm becoming and I know that when the time comes, I will see the most brilliant light and the shadow will melt into the distance.
Why am I telling you this? I made a big commitment to my soul and life purpose this week. A significant financial investment in my ascension (on top of the other investments I have already made in myself and my business this year) and whilst I know deep down this will help me to amplify my vision and birth more amazing things in support of other women, it brought up a HUGE truckload of fear.
What if everything is possible? Every dream, wish, intention, goal, plan, whisper? What if I really tune in and say yes? Will I want all of it? Will I be able to embody and project myself to the world? The possibilities are truly endless. You never know what will set you off on a new path, deepen your experience or make you face your most wanted desires unless you dive in and commit.
I love to empty my thoughts out by journaling. Here's some questions to dive into!
Journal it out, so you can bring it in:
Wherever you are on your journey through life, you have choices and decisions only you can make. Be empowered by that reality and give yourself permission in any way you can to thrive, not simply survive.
Sacred Circle Leadership Training is an 8 week long program in feminine leadership, personal enrichment and earth medicine.
