From Wallflower to Attention Lover
A new direction for the new decade, There are many things that have changed over the past 10 years. I’m wearing a crop top today for example - something that the me from 2, 5, 7, 10 (even 20 years ago and probably a million sizes smaller) would have never done. Another more prime example is the fact that I am sitting here today, running my own business, doing interviews, dancing on livestreams, drawing attention to myself and allowing myself the spotlight. For the longest time, I lived in the shadows and didn’t give myself permission to be seen or heard. I never thought I had what it took to be an entrepreneur. Those around me that were A type personalities, who had magnetised, sold and hustled from when they could walk - I envied them. I wished I could have been born like they had and had their gifts so that I too could dream of escaping the 9-5. But I was thoroughly convinced that this option escaped me as I just wasn’t that way inclined. I think this attitude that I had and that so many do have is in part nature and in part nurture. I believed we are all born with psychic abilities but some are more prevalent than others. And those of us with heightened Clair-Sense or by extension the inclination to be Empaths, can very easily become run by emotion and by the wants and needs of everybody else around us. We easily become the support people, quiet healers, background crew, assistants and the pillars that prop up the world. We know how we can make things easier for those in our circle and beyond and so we often do so at the expense of greater potential impact. It’s hard to walk away from the immediate pay off of ‘helping’ (and sometimes just mothering or enabling) this person, that person and the next 100 waiting in line and instead put up boundaries in order to enact the big vision. From an environmental perspective, any of us can close ourselves off to the option of being the leaders that we could be because we are protecting ourselves from the attention, money and pleasure that that in turn would give us. Maybe attention brought us trauma in the past (as was my situation) …
Money might feel scary because we don’t know how to identify with abundance … Pleasure could feel underserved because for X, Y, Z reasons you struggle with worthiness ... There’s always an underlying reason why we don’t reach for goals that are in fact possible and, underlying reasons why we then can fail even after we do recognise our own potential. I love talking on this now because it has been a MASSIVE part of what I have overcome in the past 12 months, 18 months and beyond. Seeing that all possibilities are in fact available to me and that any story, block, belief or perception can be changed. You, I, we are all born with the entrepreneur, visionary, creative, explorer, change maker, action taker and leader version of ourselves waiting within. Regardless of what your past has been, what you have previously chosen into, you get to decide what the future will give you. Shatter your illusions or keep living in your bubble of limitations.
