Hello Brave Heart,

Let me start off by saying that your responses to my last post blew me away with the honesty, vulnerability, and strength that so many of you showed in responding. I received many heartfelt stories of similar journeys that lit a serious fire under me that the time is now to be having more of these conversations about the Rites of Passage, Transitions & Initiations we as human experience.

I was recounting a story with a new client this morning about how sometimes on the path of embodiment, things can appear to get REALLY messy, especially as we embark on a new project, career, relationship or Calling of the soul. As we journey deeper into our destiny, the path can appear more chaotic at first as we let go of the things/ patterns/ excuses that will no longer serve us in the next steps and new levels.

Which, when the proper guidance isn't present to show us it's all a part of the process, leads many to walk away- from the idea, the commitment, the transition. Or more, to feel like they are doing it all wrong, 'losing it' or freeze in place... and do nothing at all. But the more I've walked this path, the more I've come to find that when we choose to keep going even if the steps feel blurry, to move THROUGH the fears, shadows and trials instead of away from them, well..... the more we move deeper into the light.

BUT MAN, DOES IT SOMETIMES TAKE SOME MAJOR COURAGE TO DO SO.

To listen to what your heart wants in the first place. To contemplate something new. To walk away from what feels safe and secure. To reach out for the support & help that you need. And so much more.

But then the question becomes:

How long are you willing to live like this- caught in the sameness & longing? Or do you have the Courage to honor The Call?

 

I posed this question on my Instagram this weekend and received many private messages recounting the fears holding people back from taking the actions they know they want to take. The question hit a nerve for many as the itching, yearning & longing has been bubbling up for transition & change.

Often from the surface, this feeling looks like a need to get AWAY from something- a job, a relationship, a city. But really at the heart of it is something deeper, something more profound.

THIS LONGING IS THE CALL- YES TO ADVENTURE, YES TO CHANGE, YET TO GETTING UNSTUCK.

BUT EVEN DEEPER, IT'S A CALL TO MEET HIDDEN PARTS OF YOURSELF AND FULLY OWN YOUR EXPERIENCE OF LIVING- EVEN IF THAT MEANS CHANGE- RADICAL, SUBTLE OR A MILLION SHADES IN BETWEEN.

Of course we can choose to ignore this Call for a while. In fact, most of us live our lives completely ignoring it.

Or maybe only half- listening. Or half-taking action.

To stay safe. To not disappoint others. To walk the 'responsible' path.

And often, let's just be real here- money and security are at the heart of this.

You see, lately I've been contemplating {more than usual} the link between mythological patterns, how we choose to live our lives in/out of faith, and ultimately how that links to our wealth.

TRUE Wealth.

{Keeping in mind of course that TRUE wealth does NOT necessarily mean tons of money in the bank...but more on that soon}.

In this contemplation I've been looking at the patterns in my own life and those of my clients and what I've found is this-

Those who gather up this courage to Honor the Call- over and over again whenever it arises- are often those who live their lives more often in a state of abundance vs living in a state of scarcity. While their bank accounts may not always reflect massive numbers or huge successes, in their hearts these are the people who seem to embody TRUE WEALTH more often than not.

And the flip side is true. I know many people who have 'the job' or career that by all intents & purposes gives them financial freedom- but they feel more chained, more restricted than most. This restriction leads to a sense of scarcity- a feeling that there is never enough, even when the money is flowing and worldly possessions are everywhere.

WHEN THE HEART FEELS IGNORED, THERE IS NEVER GOING TO BE ENOUGH.

THUS THERE WILL BE A NEVER-ENDING HAMSTER WHEEL OF ALWAYS SEEKING MORE.

And this seeking of more is the opposite of living in a true state of Wealth. It seems counter-intuitive at first I know. But I challenge you to look closely at how you view the world:

Are you always seeking more- more money, more security, more things in order to feel fulfilled?

Or do you already feel fulfilled because you have the courage to listen to your heart and take action on the deep calls of your soul, so that those things- money, security- flow in.... almost as if by magic?

AND DEEP AT THE HEART OF IT, I BELIEVE, IS HAVING THE COURAGE TO LISTEN.

To ask the hard questions. To have the difficult conversations. To cry the ugly cries and take the Leaps of Faith that most would feel don't make sense.

IT'S IN THAT FAITH THAT WEALTH THRIVES.

IT'S IN THAT COURAGE THAT LOVE WINS.

IT'S IN THAT HONORING THAT MIRACLES TAKE PLACE.

With so much rapidly changing in the world right now, it seems to me this is the only true currency to rely on.

Listening deeply. Knowing your heart. And moving forward into each new Calling as they come forth.

So today I ask you-

What's at least one itch, idea, yearning or longing that's begging for you to listen?

Can you have the courage to give it a chance?

Can you find your strength to honor that Call, however small or grand it is, by at least acknowledging it to one other person?

I'd love to hear what you come up with so feel free to respond to this email and let me know. There is more to this that we'll be exploring very soon, so your answers will help drive the conversation.

I look forward to hearing all the Callings of your Soul!

In Liberation + Celebration,
