I’ve gotta be honest.
There are a few words in the English language that I cannot stand.
“Moist” is one of them. (Ewww, right?)
The only thing worse than the word “guru” are people who declare THEMSELVES one. (Again, ew.)
While of course I create things that I hope will resonate with you, I am very aware that at the end of the day you don’t need me or anyone else.
You have the greatest guru known to man living right inside you, right at this very moment– your soul. Your intuition. Source.
My 2016 motto is this: “With Source as my savior and truth as my guide...” I say it over and over. Feel free to steal it.
I learned the hard way (many times) that my Source, my inner voice was crystal clear in its message, but for some reason, I thought I knew better. Cue the heartache, the wasted time, the REALLY tough and shitty lessons.
Even just this past year, I had MANY painful lessons, both personal and professional, that reminded me that the coach, the guru, the expert MOST worth listening to, was myself.
Don’t get me wrong. On paper 2015 was fantastic. It was successful. Busy. Profitable. A major growth year. And the whole time, while my ego was giving me a pat on the back and a whole bunch of “atta girl’s” my soul was whispering: “Stop. Breathe. Re-calibrate.”
Because appearances don’t matter. The highlight reel is irrelevant. The only thing that matters, the only way to measure a decision is to ask yourself this one question:
Does this make me feel good?
Somehow, along the way, we forgot that feeling good is the ONLY goal worth having. We started measuring success in dollars and cents. We started measuring worth in how many Facebook friends we had. We measured opportunity by what it might it do FOR us, rather than what it could do TO us.
The next time you have ANY decision to make, whether you are debating something huge like a change in your marriage or something as small as whether to go out or stay in your jammies, ask yourself, “what would make me feel good here?”
Whatever it is, do it. And don’t second guess. Because your Source will always save you.
What does this mean for me?
It means a commitment to STOP repeating old patterns that NEVER work out.
It means re-connecting with my spirit and folding spirit into my business offerings, front and center. (Because if you’re an entrepreneur you know that owning a business is a big ass spiritual test!)
It means re-committing, every day, to always taking the fastest path to peace, while being mindful of my own core needs and boundaries.
It might mean only writing to you when I have something useful to say, rather than following the advice of “gurus” who say I HAVE to write to you weekly.
Most importantly it means remembering my mantra, for every decision, every challenge, every change – With Source as my savior and truth as my guide…..
Listen to the whispers
