What’s your current theme song? Let Diana Ross inspire you and let FEAR go.
‘The time has come to break out of my shell…’
Why do we live in such FEAR of who we really are? Why do we hide from our own reality and put a lid on those very things that make us whole? It is time to let that fear go so that we can shine as the beautiful and unique individual that is hiding in the shadows. Time to really live, let the world see all of your abilities… Feel good, let it show and let go of your fears!
Where were you in 1980?
I was having a ball back then, I was 22 and working aboard a Holland America Line Passenger Cruise ship. Wow, those were some amazingly fun and carefree days. I would sing this song all the time back then so why did I stop? Why is it that we often fear what we truly desire?
Forward wind to 2013
Life is not always a bed of roses! However, we get up, brush ourselves off and move ahead in the best way we can. My life, in general has not been so bad. It has been, for the most part, an exciting adventure which has given me a great sense of joy and gratitude. It is important that we look at the positives in every situation. Every cloud does have a silver lining but it is up to you to find it! I am, and always have been an eternal optimist and no matter what challenges I have been faced with. I have always been able to see the light in the distance, which has kept me strong and determined.
As our life progresses we often fall into a pattern of relative normality. This often feels stagnant and occasionally a little blah. For me, this resulted in me keeping the lid on my desire to grow spiritually. I was so absorbed in daily life that I was either too exhausted to follow my spiritual path otherwise it just didn’t fit in. From time to time, when I felt it was ‘safe’ I opened the lid a tiny little bit to explore. Does this sound familiar to you?
Eventually it became apparent that I had reached a crossroads – I was being drawn towards using my gifts for the greater good. I could no longer hide what I believed in. At the beginning of 2017 I went on an amazing adventure to India. It was one of the most inspiring and uplifting journeys I have ever had. It gave me an opportunity to look within myself and begin to discover who I truly am. I returned home with a renewed sense of self which, in itself felt incredibly empowering.
My vision and my purpose finally became so clear to me. All that I needed to do now was to own it and share it. How difficult could that be? I was ready to share the wisdom and knowledge of my own journey to inspire and motivate others to step into their own truth and connect with their higher self. Getting a Facebook group up and running was the starting point: https://www.facebook.com/groups/612810882259422/
Despite having an incredible business mentor ( Matthew Patti), I was aware that I continued to ‘play it safe’ by not fully showing up. Fear caused me to hide behind myself, making excuses and telling people that “my business is evolving”.
Over the years, I have been recognised, by many that know me, as the Sales Executive or the Property Investor, the PA or the Banker. They assumed that my creative side was just a hobby. Believe me, It is not easy to delete the corportate image from people’s minds – or was it me not letting go of that image? Making this decision to change direction was gutsy, or, some would say crazy, however, despite the huge leap of faith I know that I am on the right path. This is who I am!
Time to Show up and own this
- I am teacher
- I am healer
- I am a channel to the angelic realm
- I am confident, curious & brave
- I am inspired traveller
- I inspire & motivate others to seek their truth
- I am adventurous and fun
- I am intrigued and excited about the mysteries of our Sacred Ancient earth
- I am so much more
Step into your truth and shout …’ I’m coming out, I want the world to know…’
Do you resonate with any of the above? I know that I am not along on my path. It can be very scary at times but there are so many people going through the same. Making these changes in their life and ‘coming out’. There are very good reasons for this and yes, this timing is perfect. Let people see your truth so that they can appreciate the magnificent human being that you truly are. If you hide behind your true self, you are not only doing those around you an injustice, but you are doing yourself an injustice.
Be that brave person you know you are and feel empowered by the words of Diana Ross!
Remember too, there is a reason for following this path. Now is the time to start to discover what that is and how to go about it. Follow your heart. Listen to your inner voice. Begin your journey of discovery now.
