Before I started my online business as a coach/healer, I wrote a personal blog that gained a lot of attention from all over the world.
Eventually, that personal blog became people reaching out and asking me for help with their problems. They wanted to email back and forth or get on the phone with me.
I didn’t know about Human Design at the time but, looking back, it was on one of the defining invitations of my life. It was when I started to free myself from my generator conditioning and started to step into my 5/2 Projector soul calling.
I started guiding people with practical solutions. And I did it for free.
I couldn’t manage that for long, though, because I was also…
…working a full-time job with almost 2 hours of commute time…
…in yoga teacher training every weekend at a yoga studio that was 2 hours away…
…maintaining the required 5 hours of studio practice with an accredited yoga teacher PLUS one hour of daily home practice…
…planning a wedding.
It was A LOT.
I honestly don’t even know how I did all of that for as long as I did.
Like a lot of my life’s experiences, it seems crazy to me that it was also this lifetime.
As crazy as that time was, it brought me to a pivotal crossroads.
My body was SCREAMING NO on a regular basis.
There was an intuitive and very real physical knowing that I just could not live like that anymore. I didn’t have it in me. My body could not keep going.
And, true to my splenic authority, I quit my job on a “whim.”
I didn’t think about it. I didn’t weigh the pros and cons. I didn’t even talk it over with my husband.
My body drew the line. I walked into my manager’s office and told her that I was giving my notice.
Within a couple of hours, she said they’d pay me two weeks severance and that, for security reasons, I could go ahead and call it quits right then.
By that point, I had been charging people for helping them but not even close to enough to make an actual living from it.
I think I was making something like $300 a month and there was no insurance, no retirement plan, and not a single ounce of proof at all that I could be successful.
By almost anyone’s standards, it was a HUGE risk that made absolutely no sense…at all.
But my body KNEW that NO was the only option.
My body knew that I could not keep going down that path.
My body knew that I was made for more than that life.
My body knew that I’d never been seen and recognized for my actual spiritual gifts in that, or any job.
My body knew that my success required a risk that made no sense, that made people upset, that had no certainty.
Today, I can say that it was one of the best decisions I ever made.
Sure, the shape of my business has transformed many times since then.
It took me almost a decade to figure out how to channel my gifts in a way that feels alive and abundant and there were some truly terrifying moments all along the way.
But I am so glad that I trusted my body’s knowing.
I am so glad that I was afraid and did it anyway.
I am so glad that I was willing to face all the shit that came up along the way.
When I think about the lives that I’ve made a positive difference in, it doesn’t even come close to what was happening in that job, or any job before it.
Today, I reach thousands upon thousands of people on a daily basis.
I help them…
…tune in to, and TRUST, their inner wisdom…
…be honest with themselves and others…
…love every nook and cranny of who they are…
…make soul-aligned decisions…
…own their gifts, even the taboo ones…
…surrender to their soul…
…set and honor boundaries…
…channel their creative energy…
And most importantly…
…be in communion with their Divinity.
And then they go out and make a similar impact, in their own unique way, on the people they encounter on daily basis.
All because of that one crazy decision.
I can’t promise you that making soul-aligned decisions will be rainbows and butterflies.
I can’t say that it will always make sense or that other people will always like your choice.
And I can’t know for sure the paths that your decisions will take you down.
But what I can know is that when your body knows, it knows.
And you don’t need to know how it knows.
You just have to TRUST.
And know that everything that happens, as a result, is meant for your spiritual awakening.
Because it is. It is all happening for you.
Your awakening is the only direction your soul is ever guiding you towards.
Your body knows the way.
