I used to seek answers outside of myself.
If I didn’t have clarity about how I should market my services or what I should even offer, I would sign up for a business course that would provide the appropriate worksheets to help me develop a plan. If I was struggling with something in my personal life, I would ask the husband, friends, or parents. No matter the issue, I set out on a course to get answers from other people, places, and things.
But when I looked for solutions outside of myself, all I got was more confusion, self-doubt, and a pile of unfinished coursework that made me feel like a big fat loser because I could never seem to complete it. I could never find the answers because I was looking in all the wrong places!
Here’s the thing…
[Tweet "Clarity about who you are, your purpose in the world, and what makes you happy comes from within YOU."]
YOU have all the answers you need. You just need to look in the right place. And once you tap into your authentic self, then you can choose those external resources that SUPPLEMENT your needs rather than try to make them the source of your knowing.
Here’s a great example from just yesterday. My Foodtervention biz partner, Joanna, and I were a bit scattered about how to proceed with a marketing plan. We were both frustrated, grasping at straws, just blindly throwing wet-noodled ideas at the wall. One of our ideas was to pay someone to do some copy and a Facebook advertising campaign for us. Maybe THIS person will be the answer.
The truth is, we were just both out of alignment, we knew it, so we turned within. Our biz meeting started with a card pull. Then a gathering of crystals to amp the energy we wanted. Then a Path to Heal session (a tool to locate and dissolve energy blocks).
What came from this meeting was a whole heap of clarity and renewed confidence in what we were doing. We listened to what the Universe had to say to us, and I scribbled down the message as the words flowed through Joanna. We found peace in a new plan, knowing that it came from within. It truly was an energetically powerful moment.
I can’t adequately explain how my life has changed since I started listening to my soul voice. I stopped worrying about people pleasing. I started to really understand and go after what I want and need. I started making both personal and business decisions based on what aligned with me and my gifts. I finally got clarity.
