“Our power ends precisely where our fear begins” - Melissa Etheridge
If you were fearless and knew you wouldn’t fail,
what would you be doing differently right now?
If you had the faith of an enlightened sage, what daring shift would you initiate?
If you believed that if you followed your heart’s wisdom - even when it seemed “crazy” - that you would be guided and cared for, what would you let go of doing and being so you could spend your life force the rest of this year, and beyond, on what truly matters?
There’s no question we are living in uncertain and exciting times of great potential change, both collectively and individually. And it’s in times like this, we each have a critical choice to make.
When you stand at your “edge” where your faith stops and fear begins…
Will you turn back, get stuck or settle?
Will you face the uncertainty, conjure up courage & step
into the unknown to create the reality you desire for your life,
work, and relationships - now. One bold, mighty step at a time.
If you pay close attention you will see women living from three different states of awareness. Which are you leading from?
Contracted in Fear. Trying to appear in control, controlling or blaming others or refusing to look within, where the real shift needs to occur.
Hiding out & Holding Back. Desiring to make a shift and expand their expression, but who “eek” along making ripples instead of waves. They are like waders who never dive in.
Living from Courageous Crazy Wisdom. Daring to stand at their ‘edge,’ called to do their life differently, feeling their heart calling them forth to step out of the status quo and their comfort zones so greater expansion can emerge.
What edge is your soul calling you to soar beyond?
And do you have what you need to step past the fear into the unknown
even if it scares you or the path is uncertain?
Courageous Women feel fear and have doubt too, the difference is
they meet and move through the uncertainty to make choices that feel right for them…
regardless of what is considered acceptable or feels comfortable.
If you look back through herstory you’ll see powerful women who dared to conjure up courage to step past their own fear and the projection of fear placed on them from others to follow their heart’s deep wisdom.
These trailblazers were often called “crazy” as a way to diminish and discount their feminine power and intuitive wisdom.… but in truth these women were the ones who lived freely and fully regardless of external circumstances or opinion.
They dared to stand in their true soul expression as Courageous Wise Women. Some wise women’s courage changes the masses. And for many of us, while our courage may only touch as far as our children, friends, peers, clients, communities and selves, the amount of courage it takes to stand up and lead and speak from your heart is just as immense, and brave.
Truthfully... feminine wisdom is not “crazy,”
but it is crazy powerful.
It only appears “crazy” because it challenges the
status quo, shakes us out of comfort zones, and
calls us to step beyond what has always been
to create new systems & ways of living, leading
- and that can feel crazy for sure.
How have women for centuries risen above self-doubt and the pressures of an oppressive collective consciousness that reinforced the notion that they should be silent and follow the status quo, to become wise and courageous examples of what living from “crazy wisdom” really offers?
What can we model from these daring souls so that we too can tap into our innate pool of wisdom and courage to create lives that stretch us in the most supportive, sustainable and fulfilling ways possible?
