We hear it all the time.
About embodying our future self. Stepping into that future person. Visualising. Journalling. Vision boards. Meditating. Or whatever else you want to mess around with.
Yes things like visualising and journalling help.
But do you really think that just by staring at a vision board all day is going to help you really manifest that future version of you?!
Sorry to break it to you…but you’ve also got to do the fucking work.
Yep. Taking the scary as fuck steps that will get you to that next level version of yourself that you are craving.
Taking massive fucking action.
Not just wishing and waiting or joining in with someone else’s “hey just write this affirmation 179834798 times and $10K is yours!”.
Do the fucking work.
You go first, the Universe follows.
The Universe always has your back. But it’s not just gonna drop its pants for you just because you asked nicely and stuck it on a vision board FFS.
The Universe will always have your back. But you have to go first. You have to take those massive scary as fuck steps, that leap, that risk.
Everything that scares the crap out of you…is what you have to do.
Not waiting for a sign from the Universe as to whether it’s aligned or not.
The fact that you have that vision is your sign!!!!!!!
The Universe/Spirit/Source/God (take your pick) doesn’t just drop random ideas into your head like:
“Oh hey Sarah, so right, I’ve got this really cool idea, I think you’ll be great for it, totally suits you…oh fuck, wrong person, sorry Sarah about that mix up, wrong person. This vision and life isn’t meant for you. Just forget about it, ok?!”
You have the vision for the life you want because somewhere in a parallel reality you are already living that life. Your Higher Self is bringing that information to you. To show you what’s possible…if you just got out of your own fucking way.
My Higher Self is a complete badass! She takes no prisoners! She’s very wise…and very direct! Go figure! I even heard her last week after a nap say very clearly to me in a no nonsense kind of way: “Do the work”.
Because she knows!!!!!
She knows what’s available for me. It already exists!
And that’s the same for us all.
But you have to go first. Take those steps, that risk, that leap of faith.
And the Universe will follow.
Do you think I knew what would happen to me when I left my marriage last year?!?! I was fucking petrified!!!! So scared of the uncertainty around money! But I had such a strong pull within me that this was the action I simply had to take.
No going back. No faltering. Now or never.
But I knew that when I leapt…that the Universe would catch me. And I could built my wings on the way down.
It’s not been the easiest of years…but I’m still here. I survived the leap. I built my wings. Opportunities showed up. People left my life…and new people came in. I made new connections all over the world who have become amazing friends and business contacts.
The Universe showed up for me. Because I took that leap.
It’s the same with anything…but I want to keep this blog post specific for business. Specifically for spiritual entrepreneurs…because you’ll know what I’m talking about! But you can relate it to any area of your life really!
So you have a business…or you want one.
You’ve answered that calling from your soul. The one that started as a faint whisper in the wind…until it became louder and louder and turned into a foghorn in your ears!
You know that this is soul aligned. You feel it so fucking deeply within you!!! It lights you up thinking about the work your soul is here to do! The people you get to work with to help them with whatever your medicine is.
Because your soul’s work is your medicine to the world.
It feels so fucking aligned! It excites you! And you are finally saying yes to your soul.
But then your human shows up.
Moaning. Complaining. Worrying. Fretting. Scared. Uncertain. Petrified.
So you listen to your human. You buy into the fears of the ego. You allow your ego to call the shots. Your shadows come out to play and you start to tell yourself things like:
- “Who do I think I am?! I can’t do this! It’s too risky!”
- “Nobody will work with me. Nobody will pay me what I want to charge. Fuck. Best just devalue what I do and hope that I can attract some clients”
- “I’m not good enough. I don’t deserve to have everything I want! Best quit whilst I’m ahead. Go back to a 9-5 that bores the fuck out of me”
- “All these people out there who are showing up and doing amazing in their business are just so much more experienced and talented than I am. I can’t do this if I have to compete with people like them!”
Moan. Moan. Moan.
Your ego is an absolute bitch at times. Like a helicopter mum who is scared to let her child out of her sight and is constantly hovering just in the corner! (you know the ones I mean!)
You buy into the fears of your ego. The fears of your human. The fears that tell you that you can’t do this, can’t have that, can’t be paid your worth, can’t do your magic and your medicine, can’t have the right clients.
And you listen to it.
All the while your soul is chomping at the bit and edging you further and further into your truth. Literally shouting at you to “wake the fuck up!” and just do your work.
Your soul’s work.
But you’re too fucking scared. And your letting your own illusions and fears hold you back from that vision that your Higher Self has already shown you FFS!
It fucking exists! Right now! It exists!!!! In a parallel reality somewhere in the Cosmos…what you want exists.
But you’re too fucking scared to call it in.
And you start to fret and worry that you’ll never achieve your goals and your dreams.
You take the easy way out…listening to bullshit advice from the spiritual community to just create a vision board and journal and meditate on it.
And hold space for what you desire.
And by not taking the leap…by not taking the risks…by not trusting your soul and surrendering to the Divine…what you desire moves further and further away from you.
The cost to attain it becomes higher and higher.
Yep. It’s a fact that the longer you deny your soul’s calling and the work you came here to do, the longer you stall in showing up as who the fuck you actually are…the higher the cost is to become that person.
It may cost your relationship.
It may cost friendships.
It may cost you your health (physical or mental).
It’ll very likely cost you money as you scramble around trying to find something, anything, that will help you out. That’ll help you find your way.
But you end up opting for the things that aren’t truly aligned for you. Maybe booking a reading with someone. Or joining some “free challenge” that you hope will change your life. Or investing in a low cost service with 2000 others where you get zero hands on interation and are just a number. Or investing in a low cost coach because your friend Becky once worked with her and she needs some clients.
Whatever it is…the longer you hold off from just finally listening to your soul and taking that leap…the higher the cost is to you.
All the while…dancing around what actually will work. Doing the action that scares the fuck out of you.
I should know. Because I’ve been there!!!!
I’ve tried all sorts of business opportunities. Going from one to the other…never feeling like I fitted in with them or they fitted in with me. Feeling frustrated. Building up debt. Getting even more frustrated. Going round in circles trying to find what I was supposed to be doing. Investing in coaches I found online who seemed ok but really their expertise wasn’t what I needed and didn’t suit my energy or my soul’s purpose. Leaving me even more frustrated!
But it was already within me. I just wasn’t listening very hard. I wasn’t tuning into my own magic. I wasn’t surrendering to the Divine. And I was getting tested big time like I was in some boxing ring with the Universe.
“In the red corner, we have Leanne!” (crapping her pants!)
“In the blue corner, we have the Universe!” (looking all high and mighty and omnificent)
And stepping into that ring with the Universe throwing punch after punch into my bruised and battered face shouting: “how much do you want this?!! Do you want this badly enough?! Well show the fuck up then bitch!”
You have to be prepared to step into that boxing ring.
To get battered and bruised a bit.
To dance with the Universe and your soul.
But you find your feet, you stand up, you throw a few punches back:
“Get out of my face, of course I fucking want this!” *jab, jab, punch*
And the Universe shows up for you. Opening up opportunities to you that you couldn’t have seen before because you were too blinded by your fears.
Blinded by your ego.
Blinded by your shadows.
So what you were looking for couldn’t find you…because you’d built a big fucking wall separating you and what is already available to you.
Don’t you see?!?!?
It’s already available to you! Everything you desire!
The soulmate clients?! They already exist! You’ve a soul contract with them already!!! They are already on the grid!!! But they can’t see you yet!!! They can’t feel you!!! They exist…yes…but until you show the fuck up and step up and into who you came here to be…and step into that future version of yourself who already has the kick-ass business filled with soulmate clients…until you do that…your soulmate clients can’t find you.
(And this can also be applied to soulmate lovers too – they are already out there, on that energetic grid, waiting for you to show up energetically so you both become a match to each other).
Perhaps you’re already speaking to them though in some capacity.
Maybe you’re friends on Facebook.
Maybe they’ve worked with you before in a different capacity.
But right now…you’ve got a big fucking wall up between you and them. They can’t get through it to connect with your energy that’s gonna light them up like a firecracker…because you’re too fucking scared to step into your power.
So maybe they’ll continue to stay on that grid. Just on the other side of that two-way glass. So close…but also just slightly out of reach.
Or…maybe, just maybe…you’ll lean into yourself.
You’ll tell your fears to fuck off.
You’ll tell your ego to shut the fuck up.
And you’ll do the very things that scare the fucking crap out of you…that enable you to step into and embody that “future self” and who you really are.
And by “future self” I really mean “current self” because time is just an illusion created by humanity. Time doesnt’ exist in the quantum space. It’s all about energy! That’s why referring to things like Divine Timing really are just about energy.
Your next-level you is on a different energetic frequency to where you are at right now. And your soulmate clients and soulmate business cannot find you.
Because your energies are out of sync with each other.
Take that risk.
Invest in the people and the experiences who are going to push you to grow.
Take the actions.
Say yes to your soul – finally!
Because like I said, the longer you wait to step into that you who already exists in a different reality, the higher the cost.
It’s game time.
