The Biggest Discovery…
Ever since I was a little girl all I wanted to do was help. I wanted to heal and make sure everyone was taken care of but as time went on, I noticed more people would take than give and the idea of helping came with an expense of my own well-being.
It took years to understand what I was passionate about. I had gone to school to study Interior Design because I loved brightening up homes and redesigning. I felt I was very artistic and had an eye for these things. I then studied Nursing which lead to Gerontology. I loved helping seniors but I still felt I needed to help people on a deeper level. There was a deep yearning inside of me and I just kept wondering aimlessly into what I thought society would accept of me.
In the midst of it all, I learned very valuable lessons: I noticed how much I cared and valued people but at the same time I was exhausted because all I did every day was “people please,” and listen to others’ opinions of what they deemed as appropriate. I had the ideology that we to lived to work.
I was miserable and broke because that mind set was limiting to me. Who the heck wants to live like that I thought to myself all the time, but I kept it to myself. I remember thinking that something doesn’t feel right; that I had to awaken this feeling inside me. As I proclaimed this to the universe, I unfortunately got sick and realized I had to make a shift in my life. I quit school, my job, I walked away from my addictions and toxic people.
Fast forward 6 years later, I now run a successful business that I literally started out of my friends home. God bless her and her hubby they were guardian Angels sent to get me started on my task of awakening people. I remember being so shy about my spiritual gifts and worried of being judged and criticized by others. I was scared of being made fun, especially behind my back.
I had many struggles, spiritual awakenings, days where I’d be in tears worried things wouldn’t work out, but people still came and I still managed to help. The minute someone showed up I knew none of it mattered I knew exactly what they needed and how I could help them. But then came the discussion of how much they would compensate me for my time and my healing.
People often believe you can’t be successful with your hobbies, joys and passions, but the reality is, YOU CAN! This is your soul purpose , to use your God give talents, hobbies , passions and gifts! And you have every right to charge for them!!
I use to hear it all the time, people assumed because I was spiritual that I shouldn’t charge but the reality is this is my full time job. My path, that deep yearning inside of me of helping people is this and just like any other profession, I put a lot of time into what I do and create. This is my soul purpose.
The biggest discover with owning my gifts and passion has been knowing my worth and value. I trust in myself and know what’s right for me. The truth is I can give and help but not at the expense of me suffering. I wrote this blog to dedicate it to all those who are doing their passion and soul’s purpose.
Charge whatever feels right for you, people will pay. Create what makes your heart sing. People will judge or compete or maybe even hate but stay grounded in yourself and keep moving forward. Those who need you will always find you. Stay in your integrity. Don’t let others make you feel as though you must justify your value or your worth. Above all remember you create your reality, the people you attract towards you are just reflections of your fears. Face them and move on.
You’re living the dream, be the example for others!
May love and light guide you home…
