I came home from Gabby Bernstein's Spirit Junkie Masterclass in New York City on a total high and rushed straight into facilitating a weekend-long Desire Map retreat. I've wanted to share with you a few of the highlights, and how my courses and coaching practice are shifting because of it. The masterclass is designed for entrepreneurs who run spirit-based business. The term "spirit-based business" can be self-defined in any way that works for you. The first night was a keynote kick-off with Gabby. The first full day was all about our own spiritual breakdowns and breakthroughs as leaders. The second day was all about business resources and skills required to be successful in this field.
In sharing highlights that stood out to me, it's my hope that you take what resonates with you and leave what doesn't. Whatever it is you need right now is exactly what you'll read and remember. Enjoy!
When one or more gather in the name of love, crazy magic goes down. Go with it.
Lean toward joy and you will be lead. This aligns to beautifully with The Desire Map and the concept of designing your entire life around one question: How do you want to feel? Feeling joy is the ultimate outcome and The Universe will rally behind that energy. Lean toward joy and you will be lead.
You undertake spiritual journeys when you realize you're not fully at home in this world.
You only need to get through today. You have everything you need right now in this moment to get you to the next. Build your life as you follow divine energy through a series of small right actions.
The transitions in your life aren't on your time. Align yourself with the flow of something larger and more powerful than you, whatever that means for you, and trust the timing of It All. Expecting the transitions to be on your time is a waste of energy.
Joy is your natural state. We detour into fear and that's okay. Let it teach you and then get out. Get on with your life aligned with your natural state of joy.
If you're feeling unsupported in any way at any time, it is because you're not supporting yourself. Start there.
Fear is a sign that you are relying on your own strength. Love tells you that you've aligned with a flow more powerful than your ego.
Meditation: Touch your body where you're feeling fear. Close your eyes and breathe energy into that fear for 90 seconds. Repeat, "Inner Guide, I surrender this fear to you. Thank you for helping me reorganize this limiting belief and restore it back to love."
You are susceptible to physical diseases when your soul is out of alignment. Your soul will manifest in your body. Ask yourself: What is the spiritual condition you need to heal in order to heal your physical body? Release the need you have to hold it all together. You're making yourself sick.
How do I know when I've had enough? When you ask that question. Listen to yourself.
If you finish this sentence, you'll change your life forever: Releasing fear gives me the freedom to...
We are always in recovery in one way or another. Be honest with yourself: Where have you looked for god or love? Where have you expended energy or exchanged your health when all you really wanted was to feel fulfilled. Know now that wherever you are is exactly where you're meant to be. We are always in recovery from the times when we disrespect our true state of joy.
Stop saying, "I have this block..." Your words will create your reality. Your doubt will give the block momentum. Find a more proactive way to phrase it and continue working on it.
If you are an empath or a highly-sensitive person, you must have steadfast, non-negotiable grounding rituals. If you don't take exceptional care of yourself, you will not have the capacity to be of service for anyone else.
You are co-creating your reality with The Universe whether you realize it or not. Tune in and master that power.
When you feel your energy is off, take a moment to ground yourself in your body. I use a mantra from Danielle LaPorte: "I call all of my power back to me now. I am whole and complete."
Allow yourself to believe, deep down in your bones, that The Universe loves you enough to bring to you what you want most. Make sure you're clear on what that is. Practice desire and release and desire and release with, "For this or something better, I am grateful."
We are here to unlearn the stories we've agreed to so far and to remember how to love.
If you follow my writing, or hopefully when you enroll in my upcoming e-course, you will start to feel the Spirit Junkie shift; which is to say I'm aligned and I'm ready!
My realization over this training weekend was that it's time for me to come home to myself. I've detoured into a masculine career, in a masculine field, one that values intellect and logic above all. It served its purpose and I'm grateful for every inch of my path, but I am letting myself admit that I am also my core self when I'm holding space for epic change and facilitating the liberation of people who have had enough. If you're on the precipice of a breakdown, a breakthrough, or you know you'd like to be...I'm your girl.
Love and light and crystals and chakra alignment and all of that juju,
