I could have said this myself: “In the past 2 months, for me, it’s been like the flow went down to a trickle (when I was sick), then grew into a river (had my spiritual upgrade) and now is more like a huge waterfall about to burst through (activation time!). Ever have that feeling? ” ~my colleague, Brenda MacIntyre
So I give it a minute, and then I have a sore throat and am aware that more is being released to make way for even more changes. Sitting in my office I see the physical representation of that. My beautiful new desk is in place, all of the old office furniture is out, gone. And….there are piles of stuff around, and a decorating plan formulating in my mind. It’s sort of chaotic and this is what you could call ‘in the midst’. 🙂
I trust the process so much that I do NOT push the river and rush things. I wait and listen for ‘what wants to happen’. This has been one of my biggest lessons in this life, and it serves me so well. Look, we are all capable of forcing things…and in my experience it never works out well. But you have to be comfortable in the state of “I don’t know” for this waiting to be possible.
One thing I am super clear about is GROUNDING. This energy is so strong and full-flowing that I want to be sure to maintain my balance, and grounding is part of how I maintain sacred space for my life and my biz. My office may be in disarray but it is headed toward order and a cohesive energy. And it will be beautiful and feel amazing. Right now it’s important to get everything out of there to allow the space to tell me what it wants to be.
I am making changes in my business too, and they also are “in the midst”. The core is in place always, the offerings change, the presentation evolves, the website get a facelift, etc. Again, get the old stuff out, dump it, and give the new time to be born when it’s ready. No inducing labor!!
I have created a private, closed group for my students and clients on FB, that’s clearly showing itself to be a sacred container for deep sharing and support. I wasn’t aware initially of all of the reasons this was a good idea but I believe Spirit inspired me to create it for the women in the group to support one another and empower themselves, freeing me from over-involvement and potential overwhelm.
I am also approaching my marketing differently, from a funnel perspective that again, creates sacred space, is highly empowering and creates plenty of choice…and makes enormous intuitive sense to me. Feels SO good and right for me. This is how my intuition tells me something hitting the sweet spot.
And I am rereading Gay Hendricks’s book The Big Leap which speaks directly to the self-created glass ceilings/upper limits we impose on ourselves.
The way I am structuring things this time around is making it all feel exciting and highly manageable in terms of BIG Growth and my ability to handle it happily and confidently. And the changes in my office are a reflection of this.
I am focusing in all things business on what I said, and Brenda picked up on the other day: “It all has to be like orange juice coming out of an orange. Natural, organic, essentially ME….and it is flowing that way I am happy to say.” The clients/students that are coming to me now THRILL me, and the idea of working with me THRILLS them—they tell me that! How does it get any better than this?
So now the sore throat is almost gone, along with the congestion, and more amazing and exciting downloads leading to openings in my work, are coming in this morning. And I can feel the physical upgrades too. It keeps on rolling if we are open…and honestly lol even if we’re not!
This one big topic and one that is close to my heart and soul as I make this current BIG LEAP!!
What changes are you “in the midst” of? Can you identify the Big Leap you are ready to take? How comfortable are you with the chaos that precedes things settling into a new place? Are you willing to really let go of the old stuff?
