On Surrender, Letting Go, and the gifts therein...

The gifts of surrendering & letting go

Today's article is based on a post I did on Monday, and it's infused with some additional yumminess and inspiration.


It's been a most challenging few weeks for me as my 1st month back in Texas -- and stepping into a nomadic lifestyle -- comes to a close. Even though I'm still in the US and on familiar ground to boot; the energetic and emotional effects of this decision becoming reality have been deeply felt.

It's been a dance between "I want to be generating income to contribute to my journey" (my Going Nomad list on Amazon is very long!) and "OMG I feel like I'm being pulled apart from the inside out!".


And perhaps the word "dance" is a tad bit gentle. It's felt more like a wrestling match.

There really is an art to the acts of surrender and letting go.

 

I admit, it took quite a bit for me to finally get to the point where I could return to center enough to "remember" that when an obstacle arises -- especially in the form of "our stuff", no amount of plowing my way through it will get me to where I want to go.

And so, after much tapping, Sacred Sufi Dance, journeying, various shamanic energy tools, and even spiritual prayer, I was able to come back into my integrity.

I stepped back into my dharma and connected with the feeling sense of surrender and dwelling in the liminal spaces -- being nourished by the unknown.

It's been a lot of work, and it's been worth it. There are still vestiges of the Agreements I'm working through but they're not getting in my way this morning.


In fact, as I'm writing this, I'm experiencing the first day of ease and joy working on my business since before I left Boulder. There's still some extra energy buzzing underneath, and I'm taking frequent breaks to move my body and ground into my being (and the Earth!)


I'm grateful for the gift of family, having a gentle place to land while I navigate this 1st stage of a very big life change, and step more fully into my dharma.

 

I'm sharing this with you today for a couple of reasons:

  1. My dharma is calling me to be more vulnerable, to share the messy side of growing a soul-based business online and in so doing, honoring my gifts by bringing them forward.

  2. I promised to do so and I hope that there is something in my words that sparks inspiration for you. Or, perhaps, there's some validation, even a realization that YOU.ARE.NOT.ALONE. 🌸

My prayer for you is that, should you be wrestling with Agreements, false beliefs, repressed emotions, and Trauma from your past, that you commit to clearing out all that no longer serves you.

It's messy work, it's quite scary at times...and it WILL free you on the inside.


Move your body, clear your chakras, learn how to turn towards your emotions and let your body do what it wants to do naturally: heal.


Learn how to raise your awareness and find healing modalities to support clearing out old heavy emotions and stale energy from your being.


Befriend your emotional body. Commit to You.


I will be bringing forward more on how to navigate this and ways to support you in the months to come.


Not sure when, but I do know that as I continue to prioritize purifying my vessel, the more my creativity and life force energy are coming alive. (This not running forth and committing to the newest inspiration that's not ready to be birthed is a new muscle for me.)


I have SO MANY IDEAS! for what I want to create and bring forth into the world.

And... I can't wait to share them with you!

I believe in my bones that my business journey and my healing journey are one in the same. It's my dream to invite this feeling sense into anyone who identifies as a soulpreneur.

Each time I come up against a block in my business journey, I find that the only way through is to turn inward, get curious, and start digging through the backpack of energetic & emotional boulders I've been carrying around in my being.


If you're feeling like you're in your own way when it comes to getting your business started, I'd love to help.

👉I invite you to book a complimentary Your Next Steps strategy session with me.

Let's dig in and get crystal clear on what's really in your way and identify a couple of actionable steps you can do right away that will support you on your business journey.


There's no charge for this session and there is no obligation to sign up for anything. Just me showing up in service to you. You don't have to go it alone, and you'll get to where you're going sooner if you don't. 💗


May you follow the calling of your heart,


Cheryl
