After so much time working in the human potential field and all the while doing the work on myself as well I am fully in the present now. What I mean is that motherhood has really brought out the most authentic version of myself - strong and nurturing, giving and allowing myself to thrive, open and quiet no more but challenging the aspects of life which no longer power me or help me to join with the real tribe I thrive alongside.
For doing the work internally especially when working to help others to do the same is so important. I can now authentically show up emotionally as well as spiritually in terms of being loving and caring of others and myself.
Due to the deep connection I have with my daughter I have a deep purpose and that fulfills me in such a profound way. It buoys me up and thereby allows me to grow as an individual not only but dutifully as the partner to others I happily accept being.
What do you need to shed in order to live your best life?
As joy has taken over my heart new opportunities are flowing to me personally and professionally. I am delving deeper into creativity by creating two new video based courses (out this spring) as well as now pursuing more partnership possibilities. The heart is the gateway to relationships as well as creativity and now that mine is so wide open due to my daughter's arrival I am able now to open up to both of those dreams I held for so long.
While it is just the beginning I feel like there is so much space to belong, to nourish, as well as to thrive for the possibilities now are readying themselves no more but actually arriving. Due to the wellspring inside of me I draw to me now those aligned to joy, to heart possibilities, as well as those now ready to grow together. While I no longer live so undernourishing of my deepest needs, the values inside of me are propelling me into the growth possibilities which I was worried I would never be able to achieve for so long. Now I realize that it was all part of the growth process and that I am now capable of achieving them due to my heart orientation now rather than solely my head one.
What are your heart dreams? And how can you go about achieving them?
