From effort to expansion
I used to feel constant worry, stress and fear. I had a seemingly great life, great friends, talent, ambition, yet I never felt peace, fulfillment, and ease. Gosh, life felt like hard work. Like a monster under my bed, there was always that fear that it wasn’t going to be enough. 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐈 𝐰𝐚𝐬𝐧’𝐭 𝐞𝐧𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡. I worried that things wouldn’t happen in the way I wanted. I felt stressed about things not working out.
I forgot to celebrate my successes and worked for a better future. I wanted a good life, and that was up to me, right? What I was overlooking was that the goal I put for myself was an image. An unobtainable image of being everything and better. I didn’t trust myself and didn’t trust life. I forgot my 𝙗𝙚𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨, in the idea of needing to become.

I started meeting myself on the inside. I started to see that this fear was really a little girl afraid to mess up. I investigated this image, and saw how I had given myself an impossible task. 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐚𝐫 𝐬𝐨 𝐡𝐢𝐠𝐡, that it constantly reaffirmed my fear: that I would never get there.
Meeting myself on this deep level helped me to transition from a life full of effort, to a life that feels 𝐞𝐱𝐜𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠, 𝐟𝐮𝐧 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐮𝐧𝐥𝐢𝐦𝐢𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐬.
To find a way of life that felt more in resonance with me, I needed to find a 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐨 𝐦𝐲 𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞, to my deep longing for life, to my real self. Instead of chasing a goal in the future, I started to meet my feelings, my longings, my intention. I stopped running away from the uncomfortable feelings and dove deep into it. ‘𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙙𝙤𝙚𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙡 𝙢𝙚?’ became the leading question.
Life’s a journey with mountaintops and pitfalls. But 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐩𝐬 that helped me finding more peace and rest in my life. Those steps have now formed the foundation upon which I created the new Online Intensive – Opening to Essence.
