There’s one thing that’s just as important as knowing who are. And that’s knowing who we are NOT.
Knowing who we are NOT can save us a lot of time, energy and heartbreak. Instead of struggling to improve ourselves, instead of getting distracted by bright, shiny objects and possible opportunities, we can say a clear and definite “no, thank you” to anything that is not impeccably aligned to our Purpose.
In doing reading after reading for the attendees of my upcoming Money & Purpose event, what really smacked me upside the head is that we don’t collectively give ourselves permission to be as unique in our creative process as we truly are.
When you look at thirty Souls in one morning, what really stands out is how differently we are made as energetic Beings. Each Soul’s vibrational spectrum is so completely unique!
So why is it that, even with the freedom of self-expression available in entrepreneurship, we love to follow “proven” models, systems and blueprints that worked for someone else?
The idea that there is a “right” way to make money that will definitely “work” if you just follow certain steps is definitely seductive. And there’s nothing wrong with emulating someone else’s business model …. IF you’re energetically similar to the person whom you are emulating!
And that’s where it all falls down. We tend to chase who we are NOT, rather than embrace who we truly are. And that means we frequently try to emulate people to whom we have little or no energetic similarity. For example, there are very few clients to whom I would recommend my exact business model! That’s because, energetically speaking, they are not at all made like me! Instead, we leverage THEIR unique gifts to create income.
What we must remember is that we can create ANYTHING we want. Each of us, regardless of our Soul’s vibrational spectrum, is capable of creating a fabulous income doing what makes our heart sing.
But how we get there is a different story.
Each of us was created to be unique. The way we were created by the Divine is also the way WE were designed to be Divine CREATORS. A pine tree can grow big and tall. But if that pine tree is trying to emulate a rose bush … well, it will stunt its own growth, deny itself its Divine self-expression, and become very frustrated with its lack of rose-growing abilities.
All of us were also designed to grow big and tall, lush and abundant in this world. All we have to do is embrace our true nature, and know that we don’t have to become who we are NOT.
