It's fair to say yesterdays message ruffled a few feathers! Some people reached out to say thank you and share that it woke them up, others were checking if I was okay. LOL. I'm fine!
So, how do I feel about that? Nothing particular, and satisfied at the same time.
Because I'm not here to fit in and make everyone else feel comfortable. We have been playing that game for hundreds (if not thousands of years) and look where it has gotten us.....
No. It turns out that I'm here to make people uncomfortable.
The people pleaser or people pusher
Growing up as a conditioned people pleaser makes this laughable and exquisitely awkward if I'm honest. But what good ever came from a comfort zone? It's a false illusion and one we are painfully now waking up from.
I'm here to make waves. Ruffle feathers. Trigger people. Say things publicly that are usually only said behind closed doors. Bring awareness to unpleasant truths. And ultimately make people uncomfortable. So much so in fact, that they cannot bear it any longer, and they have to move.
They have to do something different, take action, get real.
And the irony is that on the other side of that my work is to make people comfortable. To find ease in the discomfort and move through the layers and blocks holding them back. My work is a paradox and I'm slowly coming to terms with that realisation.
The purpose of pain
Because without pain, there is no movement. Humans are funny creatures and our wiring messes with us. We are much more motivated by pain than pleasure. That's why marketeers focus on pain points in case you hadn't noticed. it makes people wake up and take notice. A bit like my email yesterday.
Surprisingly I only had 1 person unsubscribe. So I guess if you're still here then you get where I'm coming from. The message that comes through me is resonating with you. That's what it's about at the end of the day. Energy.
Beneath the words on the surface, my message is a reminder to step into your higher calling. To go after your dreams and quit playing small. To bring your whole self to life and recognise and embody the divinity that you are.
My message is an invitation to listen to your own soul which most of the time is drowned out by the noise and distractions of day to day life. I'm a reminder that you keep forgetting something, and it's time to remember.
Be true to yourself NOW
A few years ago writing these kind of messages would have scared the hell out of me. The nice girl certainly wanted all and sundry to like and adore her.
That was then and this is now. And more to the point, NOW is the only moment we have.
After today the doors close for good. Will I see you on the inside?
Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.
