They say you teach what you need to learn. All my life I have battled with the limiting belief that "I have to do it alone." "It" being, well...essentially everything.
My higher self really loves me and believes I can handle a challenge. Last Summer my intuition practically smacked me into starting a real community of women supporting each other and making it the cornerstone of my business. After almost a year, this lesson of knowing I am supported is already running deep in me.
Las Comadres opened for registration yesterday.
Here's what I've learned is essential in order for this to work:
I'm taking that you do everything you can to walk into a space, let your guard down, open your heart, and be ready for magic to happen. When everyone walks into a space with this intention - willing to be honest, raw, and trust in the best in each other - well magic inevitably does happen.
2) Stepping outside of your comfort zone:
You GOTTA be willing to get uncomfortable. There's a reason you haven't started the business/ doubled your income/ gone for that big collaboration/ fully stepped into your power yet. There are steps along the way that can sometimes feel scary and bring up our shit. And guess what? When we ALL face them together, and you know you have 100+ women holding you through it, you remember you can do ANYTHING.
3) Choosing to believe in yourself and remember you belong every single day:
We all get to make this choice. Even the people around you who you think have their shit together the most. They too have to make a conscious choice everyday - sometimes every moment - to trust themselves, to trust their journey, to embrace support and love. And on the days when you don't, you have a group of women who are there ready to jump in and support you and remind you of your beauty and worth.
