This past month brought a lot of change in my business and somehow in the mix I found myself in the middle of a super fast paced flow. Every day had things to do - I recorded what felt like 1,386 videos, wrote 8,532 emails and posts, created an entire 13 month calendar for MasterSoul University, another for Writing the Damn Book AND another for my entire Empire (aka my businesses).
Okay the numbers are a complete and total exaggeration... and it felt a lot like that. I went from a rankin' full stop to a g-force rocket ship ride in a matter of moments.
Honestly, I had moments where I didn't think I'd get it all done, where I felt the overwhelm and confusion of actually having to work.
But it was different too. Because those moments didn't last. I kept slowing myself down and taking time away even when I felt I didn't have any time. I reminded myself daily that the magic happens not when we're pushing but when we're allowing.
And here's what I really learned...
**Surrender doesn't only happen when things are painfully slow. Surrender is also necessary when your life feels fast.**
My team and I had opportunities to work our asses off to make deadlines and DO. And we actively chose not to. We could have pushed and forced our way through lists. We didn't.
In everything we did, we reminded ourselves of ease and grace. Because everything we were creating needed to be in alignment energetically first.
Lots of deep breathing.
Lots of walking away.
Lots of getting down to only essentials and leaving the rest for later.
Lots of naps followed by...
Lots of coffee.
Lots of reframing.
Lots of second and third takes.
Lots of calling in.
Lots of imagination.
And yes, lots of videos and writing and editing and lots of chatting with people.
What looked like lots of progress was actually created by taking lots of highly intentional little steps.
"Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being. Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty fabric? Think first about the foundations of humility. The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation" -Saint Augustine
Our greatest success with releasing MasterSoul University is that we did it and it felt really amazing each step of the way. It is in service of my Purpose... to fundamentally change the conversation around energy, intuition, spirituality and energy in the realm of business - to have it be FIRST always.' And it was created from a place of BEING.
Walk the talk. Be the message.
Thanks for being on the ride with me...
