The women whose souls have arrived here on this planet at this exact moment are strong.
The women whose calling is to create + lead a business at this moment in time are trailblazers.
Although you may not currently see yourself in this light, let me reflect a glimpse into the magic I see in you today.
For generations & centuries, we have been told that there is a certain way to lead, to do business, and to achieve success.
There is a deeply ingrained belief system and construct that we are all holding (even if we meditate, do yoga, read the books, and know "the stuff") that tells us that if we aren't doing it that one way, there's something wrong with our approach.
Not just that our approach is off, but also that we are doomed to fail before we even get started.
We have all these linkages in our brains -- neural pathways connecting different ideas and concepts -- that create belief systems, which reinforce our learned responses and ways of doing things.
They also dictate our perspectives and how we see ourselves and the world around us.
I believe that it's time for a system update - for us as individuals, as women, and as a planet - that allows us to enter into a new paradigm of business, leadership, + success that's truly sustainable.
This shift begins within us first, then ripples out to others through our actions and inter-actions with the world, our work, and each other.
There is a new way -- a better way -- to do business and to live + lead that mimics natural processes and uses the natural abundance of nature as our muse.
I believe that this "new" paradigm (which of course has existed forever, but has yet to be woven into the fabric of capitalism, leadership, & commerce) begins with us as women tuning into our innate feminine wisdom, which is inherently holistic, compassionate, and intuitive.
When we remember that in order to thrive, we are meant to...
- operate in cycles
- follow the pace of the seasons
- plant new "seeds" with new moon
- consult how we are feeling on all levels before leaping into action
- consider how the entire "ecosystem" is effected by our choices
- slow down so we may listen deeply
- give ourselves permission to rest, pause, surrender, and celebrate
... then we begin to create an instant shift toward a more conscious approach to success in business, life, + leadership.
As with anything, when we take responsibility to shift first, we create a ripple effect in the world around us and everything else rises to meet us in our new higher vibrational state of energy.
When we take the initiative to trailblaze a new way of being + doing that feels truly aligned for us, we give permission to others to do the same.
And because, as women, we are so intimately connected with these ways of being and doing -- in our physical bodies, but also in our hearts -- we are the midwives of this new age.
This also means that we aren't meant to do it alone -- we are meant to rise & carve out this new way of doing everything holistically, together.
The old way of being says our achievement is "worth more" if we did it all by ourselves. The new way invites us to shatter the illusion of separation, and to embrace our interconnectedness and interdependence with one another in community.
I know that the future is in our hands, which means it will start in yours, too.
We've got this.
Love + Light,
