There was a time (not too long ago) I thought the term, "lightworkers" was total bullsh*t. It just DIDN'T resonate with me.
Who are these people?
What the hell is lightworking?
How is this even a career?
You just don't know what you don't know. And it was my limited beliefs that were holding me back. I was unwilling (not unable--two very different things!) to see possibility.
The possibility that:
I could make money just showing up in my light.
Believing that my positive energy can pay my bills.
Seeing the potentiality of how teaching others to own and shine their light could actually be a career path.
I had my own blocks. And I was holding onto them pretty tightly.
I was hiding in my own victim story.
I was wallowing.
I was unwilling to open and become what my higher self (the one without ego) knew was deep within.
But I hit a point. That point where you know you can't go back.
I started to feel (in more way than I have words for) the aching pull to acknowledge my self-worth. My right to be here and to shine my light. My right to stop accepting less than what I was meant for.
For me, this meant leaving teaching.
The pay wasn't enough.
I could barely pay the bills, save, invest and buy the things I wanted.
I started to see money as an energetic exchange.
I stopped believing that I had to sacrifice basic needs (like feeling valued).
I started to see the best thing that happened to me was the thing that was never coming--a pay raise in teaching.
I decided if I was putting so much energy into something that WASN'T working, I might as well put into something that might work.
It was that simple.
But deep down I knew it would work.
Deep down I decided it would work.
At some point we need to decide that letting go of what is holding us back is easier than holding so tightly to the fear that feeds it.
You are no less than the sun, the stars and the moon.
You have a right to be here.
You have a right to shine.
Claim it, babes!
