The phone rang. A loved one was calling me at an unusual time of day which immediately put me on guard.
"I need to tell you something, but I am not sure how.".....
We all know these moments. The ones that shake our foundation and rock us to the core.
A few years ago, an experience like this would have put me into an emotional tail spin, followed by over-analyzing the situation, topped off with anxiety and panic attacks. Yet, over these past few years as I have dove deep into claiming and honoring the core of who I am, external situations have less and less influence over how I feel, how I show up, and no longer shift my internal compass.
Standing firm in who you are
The Solar Plexus Chakra.
It hasn't always been easy to remain firm and aligned in who I am in. I knew who I was on the inside yet the school of 'life', being taught to be professional, training as a midwife, and all of the business advice I ran across suggested putting your best self forward, thus creating a persona that was not an absolute direct reflection of who I am.
Claiming expansive energy (vs contracted) means standing firm in who you are regardless of situations, circumstances, or company. Before, I only let little bits of myself be seen to different people or at different times based on how safe I felt to show up.
Over the past few years, I have found my ability to stand firmly in who I am as I have dug more deeply into this work. It has been a journey and one that I would go through over and over again to get to where I am today.
Spending time unburying our unique self is powerful since most of us have been buried under societal should's, have to's, be polite, don't let them see you cry, you can't rely on anyone, you have to work hard for your money, blah, blah, blah. When we break free from the pack who continue to choose to live this way, who we truly are at the core begins to emerge and bloom.
This is what sets us a part from everyone else.
Often, when beginning the journey of stepping into our gifts, it is easy to be influenced by those we have followed or admired. It is common to feel like there are so many people already doing what we want to do, so why should we even bother? How can we be seen among the sea of similar gifts, offerings, etc?
The trick- dig in and discover what makes you uniquely you, and share from that place.
As you may have recently noticed, my everyday life personality has come to the forefront of my business. In my Earth Changers Guide to Magic, Abundance and more 'Hell YES's, I share some of the most important questions you can ask yourself to connect more deeply with the core of who you are and what you long for. But more importantly, you will notice that some Fuck's slip out every once in a while because that is how I really truly speak in my daily life.
My rebrand and website came from my Solar Plexus. It felt like it was time to own, share and shine from the core of who I am and the work I long to share with the world.
The Solar Plexus work is one of the most important aspects of building a business and we dive deep with the work in the Earth Changer's Mastermind because I firmly believe you will make a massive impact when you step fully into who you are and the gifts you have to share with the world. It is what being an Earth Changer is all about.
Next week, I will be sharing about the Heart Chakra and the gifts it brings to life and business.
Until then...all love to you!
