How to turn your soul and your ego into soulmates

You have a very strong, brilliant mind, Lisa.  And that is exactly your problem.

My friend’s voice reverberated over the phone as my brain began to spin from that statement.

What the hell is she talking about?  Isn’t that a good thing?, I thought to myself as I caught a glimpse of my mascara stained face in the mirror and jumped a little.

From deep within me I heard a powerful voice speak up: This is not something that you can solve with the mind.  You’re so good at that. But this is your next level of mastery.  To tap into the intelligence that is in your heart.  Mind is intellect.  Soul/Heart is intelligence.

I had been on the phone with a soul sister, at wits end about a “problem” I had been dealing with for 2 years now.  

I had been going through an “existential” crisis around my purpose.  Problem was, I was operating a very successful business around a message that I was now questioning.  A message my soul was calling me to change.  But my mind wouldn’t have it.  I had spent an entire year already feeling completely lost out to sea, not knowing what to do.

My mind said:  this is crazy.  You’ve built a brand around this message.  If you suddenly change it, everyone is going to unsubscribe and you will lose everything.  This is a stupid business decision.  Do not change anything.  Stay with what you’ve built.  Just deal with it, stop being such a baby.  Be a “serious” business owner.

My soul said:  this is what your TRUE purpose is.  We are asking you to move more deeply into your TRUE message.  And this is what your soul-aligned people in your community are ACTUALLY craving and calling out for.  Don’t be afraid, you will be okay.  You cannot be led astray when your soul is a yes.  This is the time for a change.  It is important that you do this.

Two years.  Two years I had spent in this battle between my mind and my soul.  Should I? Shouldn’t I?  It was torture.  I would wake up at 4am sometimes and ask who am I?  What am I doing here?  What is this life all about?

Those nights often felt like I had woken up from a coma and had no idea who I was and how I had gotten here.  And then that feeling would send me into a full on panic attack until the low hum of traffic outside of the window lulled me back to sleep in my sweat-stained sheets.

I remember telling my therapist at the time, it feels like I truly have no anchor.  Like I am floating out in space and I will be stuck here for eternity.

I prayed for clarity.  I prayed for my mind to show me the plan.  I paid a lot of experts a lot of money to help me “figure it out”, get a plan in place.  But still I didn’t have the plan that felt good, that felt clear and that felt aligned.

Until that voice spoke up from deep within me, while I was on the phone with my friend, having my final breakdown.  That was when everything shifted for me in my work.

Just last week, I coached a client through a very similar thing.  And all year I have been doing this.  A lot of people are watching their old businesses or projects change, fall away or they find they are being called into something new they cannot name just yet. They are fighting with the fear of change, of letting go of the successful things they have created and allowing it to evolve with them.  You see, that is the time we are in this year.

This is the year, vibrationally, where truly, what is no longer aligned, can no longer stand.  If we fight it, if we keep trying to go back to our old ways of doing what is not aligned because it has “worked in the past”, things will blow up in our face.  

We are in a time of great change and awakening.  I did a video about it right here if you want to go more in depth with how the earth’s axis/tilt and position actually tells us we are in a time of awakening).  Those of us who came here to this planet, in this lifetime to assist in the evolution of consciousness, to assist in this awakening period that we are in with our true soul’s gifts… we are being called to step into true alignment with what our soul already knows.

We are being called to step into alignment with the Soul so that we can lead from the Soul and use our unique soul gifts to assist in this planetary awakening.

This is why so many of you are feeling a desire to change things up, shift your soul’s work, shift relationships, your message, your purpose and more.

We are being called to step out of the paradigm that is dying.  The paradigm that says the Ego and the mind are the master and the soul its servant.

And we are being called to step into the new paradigm, where Soul is master and the ego/mind is actually the supporter of the soul.

Right now, in the paradigm where ego is master, we spend a lot of time delaying decisions.  Because the Soul says yes!  And the ego immediately jumps into questioning the soul’s decision.  This wastes time as your ego and your Soul battle it out (with your ego usually winning and your soul being suppressed, once more).  This is how we end up in stuck cycles, feeling held back or foggy-headed for months or even, like in my case, years.

Here is a real-world example of how this happens:

A few weeks ago one of my clients told me in a session that she was feeling called to invest in a program that her Soul knew was the next step.  Except, even though she felt her Soul be a deeply grounded and full yes.  Even though she KNEW this was her next step, she was having a hell of a time making the decision to invest.

Her mind was fighting her Soul and creating a lot of fear, saying things like:  Can you afford this?  How can you make this investment when you let all your clients go last month?  You just moved, there’s already a lot on your plate, how can you commit to a whole year long program right now?  Maybe this is not the right time.  

So, she was stuck and couldn’t make the decision because there was a raging battle going on inside between her mind and her Soul. Weeks had gone by and she had missed the early bird pricing because of her inability to make the decision already.  She couldn’t “see” HOW to honor the yes in her soul.

The reason she couldn’t see the HOW of making it happen, was because her mind was focused on the problems that could arise if she said yes to her soul.  (Can you afford this? You just got rid of all your clients, how will you pay for this?  What if you don’t have time? Etc…)

When you focus on a problem, your energy contracts, you go into fear and your creativity dries up.  When you focus on the problem you make Ego the master.

The Soul on other hand, she already knows how to help you make it happen.  She’s just waiting for you to give her the space to show you how to do it.

So, I asked my client:  is this program you want to invest in truly a Soul Yes for you?

Yes, she said.

Okay, so, rather than having your ego fight the decision, how can we use that brilliant mind of yours to SUPPORT the yes in your Soul? Assume you’ve said yes already–how does your brilliant ego mind help you in fully embracing the yes to join this program? (Instead of fighting it).

She was quiet for a while (this usually boggles the mind when you first try it).

All of a sudden she let out a little gasp.

Well, my mind is showing me to create a group program that will bring in the funds to do this.  I already have a few women I know I could invite in who have been asking me for something like this.  And if for some reason the funds don’t fully show up, I have a credit card as back up that I could use so I feel safe in knowing I can make the payment, she said.

There you go.  Doesn’t that feel better?, I teased.

Yes, I feel so much more expansive now and so much better about my decision. I could hear the sigh of relief in her voice.

Just a few days later, another example of this happened on a coaching call with my group coaching clients.

One of the participants was feeling stuck on creating a program her soul had been asking her to create for months.  But she didn’t know what this program was supposed to be about or how much she could charge for it.

Actually, her Soul knew exactly what it was about and what she should charge for it.

But her ego was freaking out.  Isn’t that kind of a shift in the message of your usual programs?  Will people even want to do this?  What if no one signs up because it’s different than what you’ve done before?  Isn’t that priced too high?

As a result three months had gone by and she hadn’t created anything.  She would sit at her desk to create it, but nothing came out. Blank.  She was feeling like total crap about herself because she had not done anything, even though her Soul asked her to create this every day. Can you relate?

Once again, I asked, if your soul is already a yes, how can your ego SUPPORT your Soul in creating this, instead of fighting it?

She closed her eyes and saw her future self walking towards her in her mind.  The future self who had already created and led the program, told her exactly what the program was about and how she priced it.

Instantly, the content of the program downloaded.  Her ego, working with her soul, showed her the marketing plan and the price.  It even showed her a list of people to invite into the program.

Simple.

This is something I say all the time to my clients.

The soul is simple.
When the soul decides, it’s simple.
Yes. No. Go here. Do that.  

The ego is what complicates it all.  Our deepest fears come up.  The protector instinct of the ego kicks into overdrive and warns you to not change anything.  And then we get stuck, spinning our wheels, not knowing how to see our way out of the thing.  And this is how our greatest soul’s work gets held back in a million little ways.

Your soul, on the other hand, knows it’s going to be okay.  She’s privy to information that your ego can’t yet see.  She is the part of you that is connected to divine intelligence.  How can divine intelligence be wrong?  She knows it’s going to work out in the future and that is why she guides you in the direction she guides you in.  If you can use your ego to support your soul’s guidance, instead of fight it, you save a lot of time and agony and it’s much easier to trust because you’ve got your ego on board.

For years, I have been struggling with writing my book.  A book many of you have requested over the years.  Yet, no matter what I tried, I couldn’t seem to figure out what the book would be about.  What I should write about.

Why?

Because my ego told me this had to be the most amazing book ever written, or why even bother?  My ego told me that everyone’s eyes would be on this, so it better be brilliant or I wouldn’t make it to the NYT bestseller list.   And so for three years, I sat down at my computer.  I wrote some things.  But I couldn’t write the book.

So I asked myself the simple question that gets your soul and your ego to be soulmates, working together for your highest good.

What if I could use the brilliance of my ego to SUPPORT my Soul’s yes to writing this book instead of to tell me all the reasons why this book has to be perfect before I even write it?

Literally, five seconds later my dear friend Jen turned to me and out of the blue said to me: I think you just need to give yourself permission to write your imperfect book, Lisa.

It was like my Ego spoke through her.  My ego had been fighting writing the book because...who would I be once I became a true book author?  It had fears about this change.  What if I lost friends who didn’t like me stepping into my power this way?  What if people didn’t like the book?  What if it didn’t make it to the NYT bestseller list?  Wouldn’t I be ashamed and embarrassed?  Could I withstand the embarrassment of not having the book become “the best book of all time”?

Silly ego.

When my ego said, through my friend, just write the book imperfectly, a huge block was removed.  My perspective shifted (because I wasn’t focused on the potential problems anymore and instead using my ego to co-create with my Soul).

Five minutes later I looked at the scrap of torn paper on the table in front of me.  I had written almost the entire outline for the book and knew exactly what it would be about.  In 5 minutes.  Total. Soul. Download.

Simple.  When the Soul leads and the Ego supports, it’s simple.  It’s easy.  It flows.

So that, my loves, is how you get your ego and your soul to be soulmates.

How about you?  What soul directive is your ego fighting right now?  

If you apply the magic question, how can I use my ego to support my soul’s vision instead of fight it?, what happens to the “problem”?

I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below!

When resistance is soul-wisdom

I could hear it the moment I got on the phone with her.  Her breathing was distressed.  Her voice was strained.

I feel like such a bad business owner.  I feel like there’s more I should be doing to push the business forward, get more clients and make more money.  But all I want to do is lie down, sleep and rest.  I’m not getting anything done and I feel really ashamed.   And at the same time I just can’t seem to “make” myself do what I am supposed to do.  Maybe I need more clarity?  Another plan?

It was time for our weekly session and my client was giving me the run-down on what her last two weeks had been like.  

It was not the first time I had heard these exact words come out of someone’s mouth.  I’ve heard it by now, probably about 200 times.  It’s a very common feeling and conundrum we get ourselves into.

Most of the time when you’re stuck in this, you think you need “another plan” or even though you have a plan, suddenly feeling unmotivated makes you feel like your plan needs to be different or it’s not good enough.  So you go and pay some other expert to give you a different plan.  Or you buy a book that tells you all about another plan.  Or how you should be doing things.  Or how the most successful people in the world do things this specific way.  And then you get stuck in creating a million more plans and strategies, but somehow you still can’t get yourself to “do” what you’re “supposed to be doing”.

You look around and everyone seems to be so much more motivated than you or to have it more together than you.  You start to feel ashamed that all you did that day was sleep in late and read a book because it was all you felt like doing and then you feel like crap.

Now, there is such a thing as self-sabotage.  And self sabotage CAN look like knowing what you’re supposed to do and not doing it.  I see it happen all the time.  We tend to self sabotage especially when we are on the cusp of doing something that is really going to get us into alignment with our soul, when we are on the cusp of stepping into the person we know we are truly called here to be.

The ego likes comfort and so it will do whatever it can to get you to stay the same.  Often this looks like bingeing on Netflix, doing everything BUT what you’re supposed to be doing to move things along and getting distracted by other pointless things.

But sometimes there’s a wisdom to that resistance you are feeling.  In fact, I think resistance is not something to try to demolish or get rid of.  I think it’s something to get really curious about.  

What message does this resistance have for me?
Is the resistance truly because I’m self sabotaging?
Or is the resistance there because I’m out of alignment?
Or is it there because I actually need space right now to not make any decisions at all?

A long time ago I was working with a client who was going through a very stressful situation in her life.  When we got on the phone for our session, she guiltily confessed to me that she, a woman who taught women how to eat healthily, had spent two days eating more brownies than she normally would eat.  She was stressed out, emotionally devastated and even though she knew all the techniques, she still ate more brownies than “she should”.

My response to her?

Sometimes you just need to eat the brownies for 2 days.

Sometimes you just need to eat the brownies to get through the day, love.  Sometimes you just need to take that job “just for the money” to experience how shitty it felt to do something just for the money.  Sometimes you aren’t in resistance or self-sabotaging at all.  Sometimes your resistance is your soul asking you for some space.

Look around at nature–it has cycles.  Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall.  We are part of nature.  We go through cycles too.  There is a time for fallowness and doing nothing.  There is a time for action.  There is a time for rebirth and creativity and there is a time for play.

As I told my client who was on the phone with me, feeling ashamed over “not doing what she was supposed to be doing”, maybe there is wisdom in this resistance to “doing”?  When we checked in with her soul, that was indeed true for her.

She had just been through a major life transition and had left a big part of her old life behind.  Her body was catching up with the quantum leap it had made.  It needed rest and time to do “nothing”.  
But most of the time, when we feel this way, we feel we “should be” doing something.  So we still “do nothing” but we spend the entire time we are doing nothing feeling guilty about it and beating ourselves up.  So your body, who was asking for rest, doesn’t actually get the rest She was needing and keeps asking for rest until she gets it.  That turns into two weeks or a month of doing nothing. Your guilt and your shame just prolongs it.

My “homework” for my client was simple:  great.  Then really, really do nothing for as long as your soul asks it of you.  Your soul just wants to play and go to the beach?  Do ONLY that.  You have permission to not feel guilty.  Go for it.  No “doing” or “work” allowed.

She did just that.  She was afraid at first.  She thought it would turn into 2 more weeks of going to the beach and doing nothing, and then that would lead to her entire business collapsing. But instead, within just a few days, she was full of new, creative ideas and naturally, easefully sprung back into action, feeling aligned.

Sometimes there is a wisdom to your resistance.  Sometimes the answer is not more plans and more busy work, sometimes the answer comes when you’re allowing yourself to do nothing but stare out at the view from your balcony for an entire day.

Sometimes the exact thing you need to do to get into aligned, creative action is to actually do absolutely nothing.  Sometimes what you need is more unadulterated, unashamed space.

….

How about you?  I’d love to hear from you in the comments below if this resonated with you!

With love,

Your soul has a song and it really, really matters

When I was a child, I would often go out into the jungle, sit down among the trees and put my hands on the damp soil, palms-down.  It was not something I had been taught to do by anyone.  It was something that I just knew to do.  Period.

I did this out of fascination.  You see, I had discovered one day while doing this that the earth has a humming sound.  If you quiet your mind and get really still, you can hear it.  A low soothing vibration.  If you’re willing you can feel it in your hands pressed to the dirt.

When I first heard this, I only could hear the vibration of soil and the life burrowed deep within its crevices.  But as I practiced more and more, I began to hear many other things.  The hum of grass, insects and trees.  Leaves, birds, the breeze and the clouds above.  As my ears opened up more and more to the sound I began to hear a symphony of vibration, like a chant the earth sings to exalt herself.

I had never heard anyone speak of this before, so I didn’t know who to tell about this strange phenomenon.  I had always been deeply connected to music and had written many songs that came to me in dreams from what felt like other worlds.  Then one day, as I was reading up on Beethoven (I had a special love for classical music at that time and still do), I read that many believed that he could hear the vibration of the planets and that he wrote many of his compositions while deaf by tuning in to these vibrations.

I was stunned, because there was confirmation of a very interesting phenomenon that I thought was unique only to me.

And then a question entered my mind…

Does everything sing?  Could it be that everything has its own particular vibration?

That question stayed with me for many years.  I suspected this was true.  Intuitively, I felt it.  And I heard it, if I got really still.  It wasn’t until years later in college that I came across another confirmation of this very question.

While reading St. Augustine’s works in a philosophy class I came across the passage where he describes being with his mother right before she died.  I remember being moved to tears as he recalled having a conversation with her that elevated them into an almost ecstatic state.  In this state he could feel himself connecting to all living beings, rising into the heavens alongside his mother’s soul.  He describes hearing the song of flowers and all things on earth, then describes rising up above the earth and hearing the symphonies of the planets and rising even further still hearing the song of angels exalting all of creation.  When they “came down” from this ecstatic state, his mother declared to him that she was now ready to die, because she had experienced heaven.  His mother died a few days later.

I was sitting there in philosophy class, mesmerized.

Here was someone else talking about this very same “hum” that I could hear as a very young child, all those years ago, sitting in the jungle, hiking through the mountains, or even opening up my window at night when everyone else had gone to sleep.

And what I now realized was that all of existence is singing.
And it’s not just a collection of random cacophonous melodies.

We are all part of an orchestra.  Everything in existence is a unique instrument, emitting its own particular set of notes.  And each song contributes to a symphony of all that has ever existed and exists now.  Each living thing that has now passed on has left an imprint in that symphony, its own set of notes, added its own movement to the larger composition, influencing the other notes and movements that have descended from its line.

Everything sings!  Everything is adding its own particular vibration to the cosmic symphony! my brain exclaimed excitedly.

And if we are part of that everything, isn’t it feasible to believe that WE “sing” too?
Isn’t it possible that the very unique configuration of our internal organs, blood and flesh emits its own series of notes and cadences?  

It was in that moment that I realized how deeply, deeply important every thing on this planet is.

There is nothing on this planet that is here without purpose.  If your soul or the soul of any “thing” on this planet chose to be here, at this time, it is for a reason.

There is a “song” that everything seen and unseen sings and it is a very important part of the larger symphony of existence.  Take away that song, warp it, tell that song it has to be something else or silence it and the symphony of All is incomplete.  It does not sound right. It is incomplete.  Not whole.

The Universe needs you to be fully in your wholeness to be full whole itself.

That is how important you are, my love.
And that is why it is so, so deeply important that we learn how to live in full alignment with the soul.  Because in your soul is the unique song of you.

And if you sabotage it, tell it it’s not enough, hide it, berate it, abuse it, warp it to sound more like another’s song or ignore it, you are removing an important harmony in the symphony of cosmic wholeness.

It was when I realized this that I knew that I would always dedicate my life to the Soul.
Care of the soul, honoring of the soul, listening to the soul, following what the soul desires.
And all of the work that comes with that, like removing the stories you were told about your particular soulsong that distort it or silence it.

That is why I am here, week after week, writing to you.  That is why I do what I do.
Because, for one second, imagine what a world where devotion to the cultivation and protection of the unique Soul of each one of us, looks like.

An opus of harmony and possibility.

That is my job, to help you hear the song of your soul, sing it and cultivate it.  Spread it.  Sing it as often as you desire.  Express it in its purest, most original form.  Love it.  Care for it.  Weave your own piece in the cosmic harmonic web.  Leave an imprint that will change the Universal opus forever.

That is how much you matter.

This is why the most important work you will ever do is the work of aligning with your soul.

My love, do you get it now?

 

Ps:  If you geek out on this like I do, here are a few videos you will love.

Listen to what happens when you slow down the sound crickets made  

Listen to the music planets make (NASA recorded it!)

With love,

When The Universe Points A Rifle At You

screen-shot-2016-09-08-at-10-33-25-am

It’s 3am.  There is a hurricane rattling the entire house and I am lying in bed, sweating in the Florida heat with a half-working air conditioner, trying to remember where my younger cousin’s hunting rifle is hidden.

I’m going to shoot that motherf&%$er.  That’s the only solution at this point.  

A buzzer has been going off since 3pm the previous day and it has not stopped.  It is so loud it rings across the ocean canal in front of my room and still manages to sound as if it’s right next to my bed.  Think of a car horn blaring in one long note in your ear for 24 hours with no end in sight.

I have put pillows over my ears, slept with music playing through my headphones.  None of it is working.

This must be what sound torture feels like.  I feel like I am going mad.  How do I get over there and shoot that thing with the rifle so it stops?

I’m lying in bed thinking about this as I drift in and out of a sleep with dreams that include that blaring sound.   Fantasizing about shooting that thing so it stops.  

A few hours later, I am up.  Fuck it.  I’m not going to sleep anyway.  The thing is still blaring.  

I walk downstairs to check on Natalie, my event planner, who arrived last night to prepare for the group of women that is coming here tomorrow for the retreat I have planned.  

Oh my god! Did you hear that thing all night?  Did you sleep?

Natalie is on the other side of the house, so she slept like a baby.  Suddenly the sound just…stops.

I almost don’t know what to do with my body as silence rings through the house.  I feel my nervous system ungrip for the first time in 32 hours.  Could it be?  Could the blaring have finally stopped?  I wait, paralyzed in fear that it might return if I even dare to breathe.

It doesn’t.  It is gone.  Thank God.  

I turn around to walk back upstairs to my room to get dressed for the day.  As my feet are stepping on the soft carpeted steps, I get smacked in the face with it…

I sat there tolerating that sound for 32 hours.  32 hours of torture.

And I could have easily just moved to one of the empty rooms on the opposite side of the house I was renting and slept well.  But I didn’t.

Why?

……

It felt weird to be back here as I heard the wheels of the plane hit the runway and the brakes squeal to a stop.  It felt weird going back to the room I had spent the last 6 months in.  

A room with brown carpeting and white curtains, where I released some longstanding, toxic ancestral patterns for good.  Where I finally set powerful boundaries against verbal and emotional abuse that created some major familial drama for me.  A room where I came to rest and sometimes cower after a year that tested my faith to its limit and beat me down in a way I thought I might never recover from.

A room with a view where I finally got the courage to leave and leap into a frightening but ultimately soul-aligned unknown.

And here I was.  Back again.  Due to a retreat I had planned there before my quantum leap.

The minute I landed in Tampa everything was chaos.  There was a hurricane flooding everything, knocking branches into the street, shaking the windows in my room.  Everything was in chaos and depressingly hot and grey.  I didn’t sleep well at night, waking up gasping for air in a hot room.

For days I felt like I couldn’t think properly.  Stayed in bed for hours.  

My body feels like it is suddenly five sizes too big for all of the city of Tampa.

I realized in the moment that I had that thought, that this was the result of the huge soul leap I had taken when I heard that familiar voice of Desire say to me “Move to California.  Just do it.  Now”.  Stomach trembling, ego totally freaking out, I said yes to an apartment that was more rent than I had ever paid in my life, packed up the few things I own and headed west.

You see, here’s what happens to you at a DNA level when you leap into your soul’s yes and don’t give in to fear:  You instantly shift at a quantum level.  You expand instantly to five times your size.

Think for a moment about the future you that you wish to be.  

She takes the risks.  She makes the bold decisions.  She picks up everything and moves to California because her Soul told her to and she fully trusts in that guidance and intuition.

So, the minute you behave like that future you, you instantly become her.  You shift down to the core and become the future you, in that very instant.  Your cells change.  You are a different person now.

Now I understand why I was having digestive issues the whole time I was flying to Santa Barbara for my move.  Now I understand why I felt strange in my body for the first week that I was there, needing to go on daily walks on this new land with my bare feet on the ground.  

There was a deep quantum shift happening.  I was literally becoming a new person.  It was as weird as a caterpillar feels when it’s turning into brown goo and then into a butterfly.  It’s not an entirely comfortable process as your entire energetic structure shifts to become the new you.  

….

And here I am, just having realized that I tolerated a blaring horn sound to the point of madness for 32 hours, instead of just moving to another room.

Right then and there I realized why I came back here, on a soul level.

To finally release that pattern of “tolerating” what was not truly aligned with my soul.  Tolerating what was at times abusive and oppressive.  Old ancestral patterns in a few members of my family that I was taking on and using to hold my own self down, without even realizing it.  Tolerating stories passed down from generations that got reinforced last year when I had a dark night of the soul and everything fell apart.

Don’t want so much.  Don’t be so big.  Be humble.  In this life, you dream big and then some unseen force will come in and take it from you.  You won’t get what you really want, but it’s okay to settle for second best. Learn to tolerate it.  You’ll never be in that category.  Stop being so difficult and dramatic by wanting more.  You don’t have a choice, just accept this.

That is exactly why I had moved away in the first place.  Because as I began to align with my soul in this next level of my evolution, these deep seated beliefs that have been passed down through generations, that have been used to make sure everyone in the family conforms, came up to be healed and released.

And that horn.  That motherfriggin horn, that hurricane rattling the very foundations of the old house I had lived in while I dug up these painful, awful deep-seated beliefs from centuries ago that had been encoded into my DNA, all of these things were the last, painfully obvious mirror into my own pattern of “enduring” until I can find better.  A gun to my face, asking me if this was still what I was going to choose.

Sometimes your higher self will do that to you.  She’ll work in cahoots with hurricanes and horns to send you one last glaringly-ugly look into what your life would have remained as, if you hadn’t taken the leap.  Sometimes it takes a hurricane and a horn making you think murderous thoughts to make you realize that you are finally, finally done for good.

It’s the final thread, being cut loose for good.

…..

The retreat is over.  I am heading to the airport now.  Leaving Tampa and going back to my home in Santa Barbara.  The check-in machine asks me “would you like to upgrade to first class for $189 dollars?”.  I feel the part of me that tolerated that horn for 32 hours want to say no.  Don’t be so big.  Be humble.  

I purchased that damn upgrade.
What are you no longer willing to tolerate.  How will you invite your future self in to choose?

With love,

Lisa-sig-black

Inconvenience, Terror & A Soul Yes

Screen Shot 2016-08-18 at 1.03.27 PM

The other day I posted a video on Facebook (I’ve been doing little 10 minute videos here and there when I feel moved to do so) about how the soul never leads us astray and that our egos may be afraid but it always turns out okay. A woman posted under it “my journey hasn’t been as wonderful as yours”. I totally knew how she felt, and I felt confused because my intention was not to talk only about the wonderful things, but to talk about the fact that it’s never just a blissful “happily ever after” experience, it’s actually sometimes quite frightening to follow your soul and a lot of crazy things can happen when your ego is in resistance.

So I broke down my most recent and still-in-progress soul leap for you, got nitty gritty down and dirty about it with you in the audio and ended up having lots to say about it (after thinking I didn’t have anything to say!).

If you want to hear what a soul yes looks like, in real time, click the player below to listen in. I got pretty vulnerable about a few things that have happened in the last few weeks and told you all about it!

Let me know how it resonated in the comments below!

 

With love,
