If you had asked me this question 3 years ago I really wouldn't have been able to answer it. It wasn't that I wasn't spiritual and it wasn't that I wasn't entrepreneurial with lots of creative ideas either.... it was that my days were spent trying to juggle being a mother of a young child, with working in a high pressure corporate sales role, so that I could earn the money that I needed, to sustain the life I had led up to that point.
I had a very successful career in Advertising Sales, Marketing & Brand Development and for many years I absolutely loved my job. As time went on and I was no longer happy in my job and not overly happy & fulfilled in my home life either, I wrote my word for the year in the sand and I asked for CHANGE.......I started doing Belinda Davidson's chakra meditation course and boy did I get my wish! Everything changed and not for the better! Management at work changed, my responsibilities changed, my role changed and then I lost my job and my marriage hit a major hurdle all at the same time. You see as I changed my energy I started to unlock the part of me that had been there all along....the part of me that yearned for a different way of living. A different way of feeling. I now understand that this was my soul calling out to be heard. It wanted me to start living the life of my dreams.
I wanted freedom from other peoples rules, more time with my daughter, more time to work out who I was as a person and what I wanted out of life. I wanted to explore my creative ideas and my passions and build on them and be allowed to drop the weight of carrying all of the responsibility of being an amazing mother, a loving wife, a successful salesperson and money earner and all of the other pressures that I, like many other women put on themselves every day. I was tired. Tired of trying to please other people. Tired of trying to live up to unrealistic expectations and tired of not feeling joy in every moment of my life.
I embarked on a journey of self discovery and became a sponge for information & for everything bright and shiny! I enthusiastically enrolled in online course after online course, spiritual workshop after workshop. I meditated daily, took walks with a journal, did yoga, went to the gym, meditated some more and spent loads of money on self development tools and crystals and jewellery and oracle cards and you name it I bought it! As one does when they are spinning in the spiritual soup and distracted by the bright and shiny's......I also drank quite a few glassed of wine with the girls and had lots and lots of fun!
I now understand that my journey was a series of dot to dots. Really that's kind of what life is. It's about the journey not the destination....isn't that what they all say? But when you are dot to dotting or feel like you are jumping from one stepping stone to the next on a quest to find your life's calling....as liberating and exciting and refreshing and freeing as that is, its also important to have a tribe around you who understand you and what you are doing. Because believe me if I had a dollar for the number of times I have been told to come back to reality or just get a secure job in my life, I would be one lucky (rich) ducky!
So spiritually, emotionally and creatively I was flying! I was happy. In love with life. Free. Working on my energy and working on my business and my millions of ideas. Focussing on being a good mother and friend. Working on my relationship. Finding harmony in my life. But even amidst all this joy I was hitting rock bottom financially waiting for the clients to come. And that's when I came across Yvette Luciano & her Soulpreneurs Course.
