Deep down, you’re a soul woman… You didn’t come here to live what’s called a “normal life”, having a good career, a loving relationship, some successes.
No, you came here to live something magnificent, to make a difference, to realise your mission.
And as we travel on this journey called life, we can get distracted, by what we think we should be doing…
You know the high flying career, the nice holidays, buying a house etc. And some of these things are really satisfying, but are they fulfilling your soul?
Do you end up still not feeling totally content with how your life’s turned out so far? And so you feel guilty as you think you should be grateful for all that you have.
Is it bad to want more?
I find with the high flying women I work with, they feel a little bit out of place when they’ve gone for the seeming success and then having achieved it… they think “is this it?”
Yes, they can buy the nice Chanel 2.55 or big black shades and they covet the Kelly or Birkin… But it feels a bit empty. It feels like short-lived gratification to get these badges of success – because when you get them, yes they are lovely. But your soul is still crying out for more.
Your heart is calling for you to do your mission, the reason why you came down here on earth. The one thing that’s really going to satisfy your soul.
This thing, you’ll wake up in the morning and jump out of bed to do it. This thing, you’ll forget what time it is when you’re doing it. This thing, you’d almost do for free.
That thing is worth all the challenges on the way as well – enabling you, instead of swinging from “stress” to “rest”, to rise up to inspiration. And that’s the place where all the juicy stuff is… The amazing ideas which spark your creative flow.
And the question to start with… is “what would I love” right now – what is it that you love to do, you love to have, you love to be?
And do you know what? That might include a little bit of Chanel or Hermes. There’s no judgement here on what’s good or bad. So what if you love Chanel, you are still a soul-woman.
A soul-woman is a woman who knows what she wants, (even better, loves) and she lives it. UNAPOLOGETICALLY.
She owns who she is she doesn’t try to abide by the rules that are in society for us to fit into.
You know, the one that says to be spiritual you have to give up your love of material things. The one that says to love nice things is to be shallow. The one that says you have to be a good mother OR a good career woman.
My biggest secret I tell my clients?
You can never get this right, you can never please all these rules, you can never meet all these outside expectations.
So screw them.
And please yourself.
By pleasing yourself you are living authentically. And giving others permission to do the same. This doesn’t mean your selfish. You can still totally please yourself and please others at the same time.
My many clients do just this… For example Max, who gave up the corporate life to create amazing retreats – he now lives in Mallorca doing what he loves and he’s making a real difference to his client’s lives.
So do what you love, have what you love, be what you love.
I salute you… Chanel, world-traveller, and lover of life.
