The other day I was on the phone to a new client…
We were discussing what she wanted to get out of our time together and she said to me…
“I’m looking to not just find a career that feels good…I want to rediscover who I am again.”
I got full-body tingles because this is the real work behind finding a career and building a life that not just looks good on the outside but feels great on the inside too.
She had lost her way and she was ready to come back home.
And so we began to unravel the threads that were creating her current situation…
…of a shitty demanding job that was draining her life force energy
….and a life revolving around everyone else’s needs, demands and expectations except for her own.
Can you relate?
If you’re feeling lost or confused about life…please know that you’re not alone.
Read on to learn the 3 things to remember when you’re feeling lost so that you can start to come back home to yourself, your gifts, your heart and your soul.
Short on time? Read on for the transcript.
Are you feeling lost?
Unsure on which way to go?
Thinking “Who the hell am I? I don’t even know what I want anymore?”
If so this week’s episode is for you.
I have a really powerful belief that the reason why so many of us get off track in our lives, in our careers is that we’ve been going through the motions for a little bit too long.
We’ve been following the rules for “success,” doing what’s expected of us, doing what is the most logical next step in front of us and we squash down and ignore our true heartfelt desires.
What can happen, if you’re anything like me, is that you can wake up one day having achieved some cool things that you thought were important to you and realize that actually they’re not that meaningful.
You’ll realise that these goals you set for yourself aren’t super important when you’re asking the question….
”Is there more to life than this?”
So if that’s you, I just want you to know…
1. I feel for where you’re at
I know how uncomfortable it can be. You’re not alone.
2. This is a beautiful opportunity to come back to yourself
Life is supporting you to wake up and address the feelings that are bubbling up inside. So that you can finally prioritise that inner voice inside that’s calling you to something “more” something “deeper”. Even if you don’t have a conceptual picture of what “more” is yet.
3. This is an opportunity to start listening to your heart and where your soul is guiding you
Before you do, please know that you don’t necessarily have to take action your heart and soul’s calling right away.
I made that mistake in my corporate career. I quit my job and had a sabbatical to really think things through.
I remember when I was talking to the Bank I was working at about the potential options available and yet none of them felt quite right.
A part of me inside, felt like I was wasting an opportunity so this next decision had to be “right” one.
I went ALL in and dove headfirst into the advice I found at the time which was to follow your childhood passions and dreams.
For me, that looked like starting an organic skincare business.
I invested in this idea full thrust. I invested in studies. I invested my time and energy, invested in conferences, networking and trying to build up a platform in that area.
And I’ll be honest with you…
I wish I HADN’T necessarily taken action on that dream at face value.
I wish I HAD dug a little deeper to figure out why I was being called in to this area. What the essence of that was.
Which brings me to the 3 keys to a soul-aligned career….
Key #1 Ocean Power
Own your gifts, talents and strengths. With this embodied knowledge build confidence that you are capable and able to serve in your own unique way.
Key #2 Yin Yang Mixer
Trust your intuition. Let your heart lead first. Get your mind on board second. You want to at least hear your heart and then use your mind to discern the deeper truth that’s there.
Key #3 Curious Experimenter
Appreciate the fact that we’re here to learn. Every step on this journey has a lesson in store. Lean into your “mistakes” and keep moving through them. Asking “what can I learn from this?” instead of “why is this happening to me?” helps you learn the lesson and embrace where you’re at on your journey.
I believe the 3 keys are universal but the specifics are unique to you.
Your gifts will differ to your colleagues, neighbours and friends.
How your intuition speaks to you will be different.
How much grace, love and compassion you can apply to your life and the situations that get thrown your way will be different.
But the 3 keys are universal to unlocking your Soul Aligned Career.
The truth is:
You don’t have to quit your job…
You don’t have to listen to your heart’s calling at face value.
All I’m asking is that you spend a little time with the 3 keys and to go deeper.
Now I’d love to hear from you.
If you’re feeling lost and you need to rediscover who it is that you are in this moment…I want to know:
- What are the questions you’re asking?
- What are the challenges that you’re facing right now?
Leave a comment below or reply to my email. I read every email and I really want to hear from you. I want to create more to really support you in stepping into your soul-aligned career.
Remember there is no one in the world who can do what you do the way you do it.
We need more heart-centred, conscious women like you to step up and lead.
But the truth is we can’t lead authentically and impactfully if we ourselves are not strong in who we are and the gifts that we have.
It’s my goal to support you to get there.
So leave a comment below.
In the meantime have a really beautiful week.
