I realised on this retreat that my time spent devoted to the iphone scrolling, the watching, the comparison, the hustling was misplaced worship. (Side note: A few years ago it would have been getting totally shit-faced at the weekends... that was my devotional practice!)
As I move into motherhood, into a much deeper expansion of myself, into new realms of the heart space, soul space, and as my business continues to expand, here are the questions that kept coming up over, and over again.
I was terrified. I’d never travelled on my own before, but I knew I had to do this.
There are love dogs no one knows the names of.
Give your life to be one of them.
The entire time I was building my fashion career in London I felt so forgotten about by the world. I was working so hard and felt like a failure the whole time (even though on paper it looked great). I feared that it was never going to “work out” for me. That I would never get on my path.
I'm passionate about spirituality, women's empowerment, collaborative business and natural health. I also believe in creating lots of space in life for fun, joy, creativity, music, nature, travel and peace.
For the first time in my life I was standing in my power, being myself and using my innate gifts and abilities. I felt free to do what I wanted, I stopped apologising and asking for permission, and I was being rewarded for doing so. That felt good. Really good.
Didn’t you know you were bleeding?
All the time running from the wound that would set you free.
Now my belief is that this poet who never wrote a word and was buried at the cross–roads still lives. She lives in you and in me, and in many other women who are not here to–night, for they are washing up the dishes and putting the children to bed.
You have diamonds buried within you. A story that has the capacity to heal the masses. A powerful world altering mission to start working on....
Theres an underlying feeling in the world of spiritual entrepreneurship that admitting out loud to working your ass of and building a financially abundant business is somehow unspiritual. Perhaps a little bit capitalist. I want to set the record straight here...
I'm short on words this week
But, the good news is we feel so deeply for a reason. We are here to start a revolution in the hearts of others.
It’s the word that scares the crap out of us more than “No”, because a “Yes” requires us giving up all that we thought we were, to become all that we know we are.
There is nothing to find that you do not already possess.
There is nothing you need to become that you are not already.
But all you will create from sitting on the fence is nothing.
There is NOTHING happening for you from the fence.
Everything you desire is already yours!
Be honest with yourself, respect what your heart wants for you. It’s desperately trying to get your attention to bring you everything you really want. All you have to do is ask.
What you are doing is desperately trying to relieve the discomfort of feeling out of alignment with your true nature, which is LOVE.
The heart wants, what the heart wants.
It’s the only truth you need abide by, and the voice you can count on to always have your back.
