Have you ever had a killer idea, that really lights you up… until you start to over think it, freak yourself out, and your plan comes to a screeching halt? Yep, that was ME! And I’m not proud of it, but I won’t hide from it either.
You see, I was listening to my heart and everything seemed to be perfect in that instant. I was feeling the energy of this website helping all of you amazing people, and just really stepping into who I am meant to be.
Here are a few of the people who have taught me the most in the last year:
Gabby Bernstein is my soul sister!! I love all of her messages. I love her branding. I love how she is openly so spiritual, while staying true to herself, her struggle, and how she has transformed her inner struggle into a life long story of how love conquers all, always.
Amanda Frances makes me want to over come every single limiting belief that I have, shoot for the galaxies far far away, and just make fucking HISTORY! She is an amazing young spiritual entrepreneur who has a huge heart, with funky head bands, and a brand that literally captivates my hearts desires.
Chalene Johnson fills my body with energy and makes me want to simplify my life using her effortless techniques. She is fun and so humble.
Rachel Luna gives me clear cut strategies to making things happen, while sharing her heart, soul, and mind blowing experiences in a way that is so unique and carries a lesson from the depth of her heart!
After reading and listening to these awesome leaders, I started to really resinate with their stories. When I was thinking about what to share I would think of how I loved their content and I wanted to share similar content, but part of me felt like I wasn’t being authentic. I started to wonder if I was just following the crowd, and I really don’t like to feel like a follower.
This fear was killing my website momentum, and over all it was killing my drive to continue on this journey. YIKES!!!
Well, luckily the cosmos were on my side, and one day I was on Facebook while Amanda Frances was hosting a Facebook Live chat about having a foundation of knowing that I was worthy to be a coach, and that I have an very important role to play in bettering the world. (I’m stating it in such a personal tense because it literally felt like she was talking to ME.) She opens her chat up to questions, and since this question had been plaguing me I jumped on that chat and asked her what to do!! I told her how stuck I was because I felt like I wanted to share things I had learned from her and others, but I didn’t want to lose all of my authenticity.
AMANDA to the rescue! She knew exactly what I was talking about, and she simply told me that we are all learning from one another, and teaching based on what we learn. The key is to stay true to our nature, be honest about who inspires us, and to share my interpretation of what I learn and to listen to the wisdom within my heart that comes out while I’m sharing these things.
It felt like the heavens were on my side, and I literally felt free to share it ALL, in less than a 5 minutes chat through Facebook live! And I’m so grateful!
I share this with all of you to say this:
We are all learning from the people that we look up to and aspire to be. When you feel like you are losing your voice and using theirs, take a step back and put your own swag in it. Think of a what their message means to you, and listen to the wisdom within you that shares your perspective in your own words and lingo.
PLUS, little did I know, the fear of copying their voices was a direct reflection of how I was rejecting my own. It’s HARD to do the work on ourselves. We have to get REALLY HONEST!! Which can lead us to a slew of emotions that we may not be ready for. The beauty in the universe is that it is always reflecting back to us what we are feeling on the inside. I wasn’t ready to see for myself what was happening, so the universe got my ass on Facebook at the same time Amanda (which was in Greece) was doing a Facebook live! She was my mirror. I was blessed with the answer.
There is no limit on what miracles can happen when we are following our hearts.
Also, you should never be afraid to praise the teachers that have taught you. Shout them out! They may have taught you something, but they also spoke to your soul, and reminded you of something that you have went through. So talk about that! Be up front and honest about who inspired that idea, and put your own twist on it.
I hope this story has helped you to identify with who I am as a person, and that it helped you to step up and put your spin on something that spoke to you!
Now I’m not saying take all of your content from others, but don’t be afraid to share what you learn in your own words. We all have way more credit to give then we do at times, and that’s okay! We kind of all have an inner knowing that we are connected, but I’ll share my views on that in a later blog… Until next time!
