All my life I thought I needed support and guidance, and I didn’t even understand the world of empowerment until it was … almost too late! I come here to share a little of what’s been going on in my life, and to let you know … that it’s NEVER TOO LATE.
OK, so I struggled with all sorts of stuff growing up, as so many of us did, and there is a never ending supply of that stuff if I choose to dig there. Shit happens – it’s real, it’s raw and it’s ready to pop out if we don’t nourish our souls. What I have come to realize is that my life long coping mechanisms I used for dealing with my ‘shit-pit’ feelings could easily be captured under either disguising, denying, distracting or dumping!
So – in and amongst some of my deepest ‘soul excavation’ work (you will hear this term from me often), I decided that it was my duty as an awakening soul, to help others get out from the shadows of the heavy dark rock and into a place where they could stand strong in their own light, and use their voice for what they really wanted in life – FREEDOM!!
So I created a business! I was as scared as a deaf bat, but I did it!
👉 I have the support that I needed? Nope!
👉 Did I have the knowledge that I needed? Nope!
👉 Did I have the finances that I needed? Nope!
👉 Did I have the passion and drive to make a change? YUP!
So why the heck would I start a coaching business when I wasn’t ready, and to boot, when I afraid of judgement and failure! Why? Because I learned that if you don’t take a risk and jump into the dark realm of uncertainty, there will be no growth. I’ve learned that nothing can be more true in all areas in our life! It really is about breaking free …
I now know that starting up my business was the best decision that I ever made in my life. The learning and the lessons, in my own life and in others that I’ve been blessed to work with … there’s absolutely nothing more rewarding!
LIVE ~ LOVE ~ LAUGH ~ LEARN
Bustin’ out of that cooped up corporate cage of complacency gave me the confidence and time to do the soul excavation that I needed to put some of my own life’s puzzle pieces together. Whaaaat? Who’da thunk that I would be a responsible, mature citizen of society! A leader in something that I believed so whole heartedly. It’s AMAZING!!
Transformation is always possible … but we have to want to reach our goals bad enough, whatever they are!
I’ve done some cool things … just celebrated 2 years out of that corporate jungle, and 4 years working in my business which I aptly called “HealthSparks”, knowing that ‘health’ is all encompassing, and that everyone needs a spark to ignite the best version of themselves. Whatever area we want to improve, be it physical, emotional, spiritual, mental or social … we need a spark. I am that spark and use my energy and passion to create and express a unique experience for those invited into either my one-on-one or my group programs ~ all in the name of soul empowerment.
I started the “Soul Empowerment Lounge” facebook community about two years ago, where I live in social media. I share my experiences, both when I was in the deep dark valley and when I was climbing that mountain of hope, inspiration and success. I have shared my pains and struggles, and and my powers and strengths. I strive to consistently empower myself and guide others because I know it is a healthy mindset. Inspiration is contagious. And that contagiousity (yes, I often make up new words) leads to a desire to make shifts to destroy self-sabotaging habits.
Do you have a bad habit that you want to get rid of? Who doesn’t! Could be coffee, smoking, drinking, ice cream, netflix, yelling, shopping, procrastination, people pleasing or perfectionism. The list goes on! We all have them … tightly kept within our safe soul pockets, hidden from those that we love the most, including our selves. I love destroying habits – it empowers me and reminds me that we have control over our destiny.
I’ve had many bad habits, physical, emotional and behavioural. I am a black and white kinda girl. It was all or nothing, right or wrong, good or bad, happy or sad. No middle of the road shit for this mama. I found that blame was much easier to access than truth, apology or forgiveness. I drank almost every day to numb the truth out. I ran away from relationships because I was afraid of conflict. I ran away from myself because I was afraid of what I would find if I opened up some of those childhood wounds which had been locked inside of me for so long.
Now, I’m proud to say that I live an alcohol free life! I have found courage, clarity and consistency in my life now that I have taken the blinds down. Not all of it was pretty – guaranteed … but it was necessary. It was necessary for me to evolve as a change-maker and transformation-seeker. It’s never, ever too late to make a change in our lives, we just have to know what we want, and why we want it.
