You are more powerful than you realise.✨
I spent many years running away from myself, my past and my emotions. I was so numbed out I didn’t even know I was numbed out. 😆
Burying myself in my work, in food, in TV.
Trying to escape the reality of my life..
Avoiding the deeper issues.
Avoiding the past.
Avoid avoid avoid.
Because to me, avoiding felt better than feeling, facing it.
Because I was TERRIFIED of my emotions.
Growing up I didn’t feel my emotions were nurtured or directed.I felt so many of them were “wrong”.I didn’t know how to navigate them at all.
This made me petrified of emotions because if emotions are “wrong”, yet I’m feeling this tidal wave of them.. and I don’t know what to do with them.. all I can do is stuff them down and run away and hope they go away!
The problem is, they don’t.
Suppressed emotions have a huge impact on our mental health, can generate anxiety and depression, our tear apart our physical health.
Many of you will already know that I suffered with the autoimmune disease – Rheumatoid Arthritis for most of the last decade..
I remember days I couldn’t undo my bra, turn on taps, some days I couldn’t even get out of bed I was in so much pain. It was horrific and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.
We are the KEY ASSETS of our businesses. If we don’t have health we haven’t got anything to give.
Not to mention the mindset issues they cause leaving us feeling frustrated, being reactive, spinning our wheels or just being out of alignment in our businesses.. because we JUST DON’T KNOW the root cause of what’s driving our behaviour and results.
Which further frustrates entrepreneurs because they’re not up-levelling at the speed they want to, and living in their full income and impact potential! 😤
I was anxious.
I had been diagnosed with cPTSD.
And I had an auto immune disease.
I was also attracting clients who were NOT aligned to me..
But they were a MIRROR of everything I was suppressing (I will have to teach this in another post).
So suppressing them wasn’t really working out for me. 😂 Maybe you can relate?
The problem wasn’t all the surface-level business problems.The problem wasn’t that my marketing was off.That I needed to clarify my message or targeting.
The problem wasn’t that I just needed to take some meds and peace out homey-g. (No judgement to anyone that does)
The problem was that I was:
A/ Terrified of my emotions
B/ Avoiding them because..
C/ I didn’t know how to do them very well.
I didn’t know how to regulate myself.I didn’t know how to feel something and let it move through me.I didn’t realise that you didn’t need to BECOME an emotion.
I didn’t realise you could feel and let the wave move through rather than being swept up into the current and smashed against the rocks.
I would try to ride the wave and hold on and be dumped over and over again because I hadn’t learned how to surf. I had no board. I had no strategies. I had no balance.
This is where Inner Alignment Practise comes in.
The IAP allows us to move through roadblocks and limits fast, pin-pointing the exact resistance and the root of that resistance and making efficient work of “the purge” as I like to call it. Ripping that bad boy out and generating inner alignment that creates outer alignment that makes you become unstoppable!!!
It might be something someone said to you that makes you lose your confidence sometimes.
It might be a bitter divorce you went through that’s stopped you using your voice.
It might be that as a kiddo you didn’t feel seen or heard and so now you constantly chop and change your messaging and offers..
We don’t know until we get in there and process the resistances that are coming up for you.
Many entrepreneurs avoid the deeper IAP because they don’t want to feel because ultimately they don’t TRUST that they are POWERFUL enough to ride the wave.
They don’t have the strategies.
They don’t have the tools.
They haven’t been coached in the practise.
It’s so ineffective and inefficient to do business this way. To do leadership this way. To create impact this way. Because you will always be holding yourself back or slowing yourself down in some way.
And so my message to you today, my friend is this:
YOU ARE MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU REALISE.
You have the strength to face, process, release, overcome and bring the BOOMMMMM to everything that has ever caused you to shy away from who you were truly born to be.
You already HAVE IT.
It’s not that you lack the strength or the power..
It’s that you need the strategies, tools and practise to continually move through the things life brings you..
To expand your emotional capacity.To rise, catapulted into your next-level FAST.
This is a skill that has absolutely changed EVERYTHING for me, and it will for you too.
If you are brave enough
