HONOURING YOUR SOUL RESPONSIBILITY
I read something this morning which brought me to a standstill. It’s rare for me to feel speechless … rarer still for me to feel shocked or ‘woken up’ with a truth about myself and how I am NOT stepping up.
I don’t mean I think I am always doing all the work of being fully me – I am continually aware of ways in which I shirk, play small, could be SO much bolder and more audacious in getting my message out, and my art from the heart! I am GRATEFUL, also, for this awareness. For the knowledge that no matter how far we go, how deep we drop, there is ALWAYS another level, another layer.
Thank goodness for that!
In this case, it wasn’t directed personally at me, it was a blog by one of my favourite writers. As a matter of fact, MOST of the big shifts or ‘ahas’ I’ve had about myself have come from reading the blogs of my favourite writers! It’s one reason why I am so committed to my own daily unleashing of soul truth, no matter how much I at times don’t feel like it, or imagine to myself that I have nothing to say.
Funny how many thousands of words have been said, when I’ve nothing to say, simply because I make space for it and REQUIRE the muse to show up! Hmmm? Hmmm!
He was writing about having recently decided to opt out of continuing on in the high-level mastermind he was in.
I’m pretty sure I know which MM this was, based on previous things he’s published. One run by a very famous internet marketer. The kind of MM which I and my clients actively avoid because it’s the sort of place where RULES are taught. Y’know – do NOT follow soul, and instead do all these join-the-dots-thingies, whether or not it feels in integrity! In fact, the more it goes against what feels RIGHT, the more you’re probably DOING it right, the Internet Market-y way!
No thanks – I’ve been there, got the t-shirt and the anxiety disorder as a result of trying to build a business by NOT following soul, and I ain’t goin’ back!
You too? Thought so … we ALL always end up finding each other, us soul-led ones!
This, what I just said, is pretty much the reason he decided not to continue.
Feeling torn between being in a high-level entrepreneur environment and, well – staying true to heart and soul in business.
Sadly, the two don’t often exist simultaneously.
He wrote about this as well – about how disheartened he was or is, that there are no mastermind groups based on following creativity, alignment, INTEGRITY, heart, soul, based on truly loving and connecting deeply with one’s customers, rather than seeing them as leads to manoeuvre through a funnel.
And about how maybe he would start one.
Well, I hope he does!
But also – faaarrrrrrkkkkkkk!
As I read, I FULLY connected with his frustration and sadness, because I too have been part of high-level masterminds where slowly but surely the sinking feeling of despair – that this is all some next level certified and laminated BULLSHIT, as far as how they all try to make their money – can no longer be ignored.
In the end, soul ALWAYS wins. For us …
But there was something else I couldn’t ignore, as I read this.
I RUN A SOUL-LED HIGH LEVEL MASTERMIND FOR HEART CENTRED ENTREPRENEURS WHO ARE ABOUT PURPOSE, PASSION, FLOW, AND HARDCORE LOVING THEIR COMMUNITIES! Who ONLY sell from soul … unleash what is inside of them … create the whole damn SYSTEM based on what the inner voice guides them to … and also, just quietly, have built business to the 6, multi-6, 7 and even multi-7 level!
That’s exactly what my Inner Circle is!
Reading this mentor’s blog, the blog of a man who I have actively read EVERY word of since I first discovered in 2011, including all the archives, I couldn’t help but feel mildly stunned.
I play small, when it comes to sharing about my Inner Circle.
I mentor some of the top female entrepreneurs in our industry, and yet … I kinda sweep my high-level work under the carpet.
The truth is, and I literally only realised this this morning – I feel apologetic about it! Like I should hide it! Like my soul work – of guiding these badasses to remember ALL that they are, become it, and build an online empire which impacts millions and also MAKES millions, from flow – isn’t good enough! Or maybe –
(and here’s the kicker)
– it’s because I know that this work which comes through me, which I have been fortunate enough to be the vessel for, is SO good
Almost SCARY in just how deeply magical it is
And something in me, that shy little girl who is still VERY much a part of me, simply feels, well –
Have you ever felt that way? As though you are not good enough for your soul work, and you should hide, play small, SHIRK?
Never mind whether you’ve consciously felt that way – !
Do you ACT that way?
Do you play down your magic? Brush your deepest and most powerful work under the table? Only very subtly or shyly offer it to the world, almost as though it’s something that only the true Nancy Drew-esque people who actively hunt it out from you should get to know about!
I bet you do.
I KNOW I do, have been doing so, with my high-level private client work.
Partly, it’s a point of pride that my clients are the ones who dug it out of me, and signed THEMSELVES up without me even marketing the damn thing!
Partly, it’s me feeling unworthy to SHOUT IT FROM THE HEAVENS.
I’d say that’s a big part, that last bit…
After I finished reading his blog, I turned to my journal and I wrote –
“My Inner Circle is the most powerful Mastermind for heart and soul-centred ‘from alignment’ entrepreneurs in the WORLD. I allow myself to be all that I am meant to be as a leader of this.
I wonder what would happen, don’t you –
If you decided to do the same with YOUR deepest work.
The thing is, everyone who follows or knows me knows I stand AGAINST the ‘system’ in internet marketing.
I’ve built a multi-7-figure location and lifestyle free online empire, simply by saying ‘fuck the rules’ (after I experienced first-hand how TREACHEROUS it was to try and follow ’em, and decided that NOTHING was worth that!), and by sharing my message, my soul work, my art.
Creating literally hundreds of online products and services, launching hundreds of times now in 12 years online, creating DAILY free content, and having it ALL just be a product of following inner guidance!
And I consistently continue to improve, in all measurable physical as well as – most importantly – internal results.
I’m not shy about shouting this stuff from the heavens, and selling my low-cost online programs, which deliver EASILY 100x the value of what people pay for them! I know this because I KNOW it, but also because I receive literally dozens of thankyou’s, to the tune of ‘you changed my life … I always believed it could be this way … you are the person who has MOST impacted me … I’m doing what I was born for … etc’ … dozens of messages like this DAILY!
But yet, when it comes to the work I do at the HIGHEST level –
When it comes to being a leader of leaders –
And knowing that I have literally impacted some of THE most powerful soul-led badasses in our space to GO ALL IN ON BEING THEM –
Thus finally accessing abundance and FULL flow of money, fame, success, HAPPINESS, heck even body love and life stuff, in a way that following the ‘system’ could NEVER provide –
I don’t really talk about that!
I don’t actively promote it!
I do NOT shout it from the heavens!
Anyone would think I was committed to NOT growing my high-level Mastermind!!
So I guess what I’m saying is –
I run the BEST damn mastermind in the world for entrepreneurs who know they are meant to make millions, impact millions, and change the world but who refuse to do it from anything BUT soul and alignment.
Imma ’bout to start shouting about it.
You too, with your stuff?
Let’s go then.
Don’t forget –
Life is Now. Press Play.
