What are you the leader of?
September is presenting us an opportunity... to say YES and develop the habits, structures and physicality for us to step into leadership in our lives.
We are all leaders in some capacity. We hold the space for the dreams, values and priorities we carry. And by leaning into the structures to uplift them... we create possibility and opportunity for ourselves and others.
However... one of the biggest sabotages of true leadership is attachment to a false sense of security. When we do that, we set ourselves up on a house of cards, versus true stability and safety.
To explore, listen to the forecast video here, and reflect on some of these journal prompts.
"I say Yes to adventure."
Adventure, connection and freedom. These are my core values. I hold them close to my heart, and I honour them in every choice I make. When uncertainty or doubt sneaks in, I repeat this to myself.
And my life has expanded exponentially as a result.
“I freaking love my life.”
I take a moment every day. Whether it is sipping my coffee on my deck, amongst my pots of flowers. Or as I stand, ankle deep, at the beach, and feel the water carry away my worries. Or as I sit at my desk, having just completed a training call where I felt the expansion, potential and impact rise, then land and anchor.
I recently spent 5 blissful off-grid days camping.
We slept in a camper van, overlooking a beautiful sandy beach, listening to the gentle waves ripple as we fell asleep at night.
We slept deeply, cooled by the fresh lake water, with our nightly skinny dip, under an almost full moon.
We danced in the sand, a roaring fire warming us, laughing...
August will have fire energy.
It is meant to be fuel for creation and amplification.
However, it can consume you if you aren't aware and effectively processing emotion.
Feelings are for feeling. FEEL THEM! Surrender and allow them to flow. Be present with it. And then, after you process, release.
Retain the information you receive.
Apply and integrate to move forward.
What can you do this month to stay aware and present with your emotions? And what support can you call in to become more emotionally masterful so you are in your power, and not a victim to all that unfolds?
You are not late.
You are not too early.
I am here to tell you: You are just on time.
Facets of the world will tell you:
You need more experience.
You need more education.
You haven't worked hard enough.
It didn't come natural enough.
You don't have the right letters behind your name.
Your network isn't big enough.
Your website isn't shiny enough.
Your style isn't fashionable enough.
You need more time.
You need more facts, education and training.
You need more evidence, testimonials, social proof.
This is a controlling, manipulative, limiting narrative designed to leverage your fears and insecurities. Don't play into it.
Let me tell you the truth:
You are just on time.
You are exactly what is needed.
Your energy is the solution.
You have the right background.
Your life experience has prepared you.
Your connection with the world around you is putting you in the right place, at the right time.
You know more than you realize.
You are perfectly designed for your contribution.
The things you care about...
How July is like a big game of Marco-Polo.
Remember playing that game as a kid in the neighbourhood swimming pool? Well... this month, we are playing a giant version of Marco Polo. Watch the video to find out WHY and HOW to leverage this energy.
July wants you to know a few key things...
Give yourself permission to want what you want.
Because what you want, wants you.
What matters to you is important.
Prioritize your pleasure, your joy and your fun.
It matters... it is an aspect of your contribution. This is how all our values, energy, contribution swirl together and create a collective energy... impacting the evolution of humanity.
Let yourself be cracked open to access YOUR truth. Not the "truth" of the conditioning and expectations of those around you.
Trust yourself to be guided.
What are you converging with? Play the game, and allow the convergence to support you as you lean into YOUR truth.
What is trying to be born here?
The chaos and disruption we are currently experiencing is stimulating a new idea.
It is asking for seeds of a new potential to be planted.
The disruption is here to support our evolution to a paradigm shift.
We are asking for an experience more honouring than the one we are currently leaving.
The new ideas and new intentions are here to support the stability and foundation of the life we truly want to live going forward.
Your desires matter. June is here to support your choice. What do you truly want?
Watch the video to find out how this energy unfolds, and how you can leverage it to support the changes you want to see in the world.
Then come back and tell me... What do you truly want to see in your world?
Invest and cultivate to grow.
What do you want to see?
More inspiration. In-spirit. In-spire.
A business that feeds your soul.
Deeply enriching connections.
Supportive, loving community.
Secure foundations that will hold you, as you risk and experiment and leap.
For that, we need to invest. And to truly capitalize on your investment, to maximize your return (ROI), you need to invest on three levels:
Financially. Hire support. Buy a book. Take a course. Do some training. Join a club. Buy a cup of coffee for someone you want to mastermind with. Invest to spend time with people who see the best version of you.
With your time. Show up. Invest and spend your time wisely. Luxuriate in the activities that will help you grow into the person who has the things you desire. Grow and strengthen those muscles by investing your time.
Energetically. Does your energy fit where you are headed? Read. Listen to...
Where are alllllll my fellow Freedom Lovers at????
Raise your hand if this is a core value for you.
It is for me... it has been a guiding value for many years, and I am so grateful I held it so close to my heart for so long. Because it brought me to this stage in my life.
It started with Freedom from... from restriction, from chaos, from heaviness, from burden, from overwhelm.
Then at some point it shifted to Freedom to... to be joyful, to be inspired, to travel, to play, to connect, to have fun, to express my genius, to be more tuned in, to be more loving.
And, in truth, we are always growing towards another level of freedom. In these times, many of us are facing restriction. Restriction in finances, in our ability to go out, in socialization, in physical touch and connection, in ability to do in person work... the list goes on.
We are being asked to notice what is between us and our freedom... some if it is outside our influence yes. But there is something that is...
March is crazy.
So many people are going through massive pain, fear, chaos and illness. It has activated basic survival mode in everyone.
Please, in this time, first honour and meet your survival needs. Take care of your physical, emotional and mental needs first. Make sure you and your family are taken care of, especially with your health and wellbeing.
And, once your basic survival needs are met, it doesn't serve you to stay spinning in fear.
I hope this energetic context will support you with what's next.
2020 is here for us to find stability, security and foundation so we can be leaders for a more loving, stable, hopeful and secure way forward. Anything that doesn't support this uplifting energy needs to crumble and fall away. Our sense of security and leadership will first be tested, then strengthened.
March has massive disruption energy. When we set out with a goal or a plan, we often use...
