'As you continue to evolve and expand, you are gifted with new space to create in. Do not jump to fill it with mediocrity or allow yourself to shrink back to what's comfortable and easy. Only hold space for what gives you goosebumps, for what lights up your soul and the divine magic within. Scream a soulful YES to vibrant aliveness.' 💖🌱🌟
These words could not resonate more. I've had a number of opportunities sent my way (thank you universe!) that make my soul feel alive. Opportunities to expand, create and share that I never would have imagined to come my way within my first 18 months of creating Joga.
Even though I created my business with this dream/intention (and continue to write my intentions each month in my journal), I am still totally blown away, and so very grateful. Yet sometimes my mind tells me I should pass up the offer, stay within my comfort zone. But that's just living from a place of fear. They're just thoughts! 🤷🏼♀️ It's funny that we all have dreams of doing things that are grand, we wish, want, desire, ask, pray, daydream, tell ourselves that we're worthy and deserving and then when it comes, the auto response is to shrink away - we're not ready, we're undeserving, there's someone better or whatever the limiting beliefs are. 🏃🏼♀️ I've always been a risk taker, so I don't buy into those limiting beliefs often. Yeah I'll deliberate, but I've learned to find the clarity and know they're just thoughts or feelings. When an opportunity comes my way I get excited, because this is what I'm holding space for - to grow my personal projects and businesses. It's why I quit my day job and cut back from teaching as often so that my message to the universe was clear. 🙌🏼 This all may sound so woo-woo but think about the times that you've shrunk back versus going forward into opportunities, relationships, anything. For example you've got two job offers on the table - do you take the easy, familiar one, or the dream job with way more uncertainty but you're most excited for? What did you notice? For me, I go with uncertainty because it makes me feel alive. Set your intentions, ask the universe and believe your worthy - it'll come. 🙌🏼💖🌟
