You know you are born to lead. And you DO lead – an entrepreneurial effort, a mission-driven business, a cause, a non-profit organization, a family, a girl scout troop…
Why? Because in your heart of hearts you want to help make this world a happier and healthier place.
You are highly creative. You envision better ways…new ways of doing things. You are gifted at seeing the big picture and opportunities others often miss.
To the outside world you probably look pretty darn successful, and admit it, you like that. But inside, something is churning. Something seems to be relentlessly urging you to step up and play an even bigger game.
It intrigues you. It terrifies you. It will not leave you alone. Sometimes it feels like something is stuck in your throat. And what terrifies you most is that you will never dare to step past this fear and end up dying with a greater version of yourself still inside you.
But how can you possibly DO more? You know you are already dancing as fast as you can. Most days you are on auto-pilot. You feel like life is coming at you faster than you can handle it. You are tired. Overwhelm and frustration are the norm.
You fantasize about having a week alone in a hammock on a beach somewhere.
You know you are good at what you do, but you sense you are not showing up as effectively and powerfully as you know you are capable of…so you push all the harder. You are running on adrenaline.
You power through deadlines and make them (TA DA!) and then crash and burn and need two weeks to fully recover. And then you brace yourself and do it all over again.
And the weirdest part of all? Even though you are doing SO much, you STILL feel like you are playing small.
Ironically, all the while you are working too hard to make the world a happier and healthier place, you are becoming less happy and healthy yourself.
The price we pay:
As a Women’s Empowerment Mentor, I’ve seen how feminine leadership traits have the power to transform lives. I also know first-hand the health challenges that can happen when a woman’s creative expression and abilities are denied, under-utilized, over-looked or misunderstood and she forgets to nurture herself as well as she nurtures others.
She can develop anxiety, depression, adrenal fatigue, chronic digestive disorders and other illnesses due to constantly being in a state of fight or flight run by the sympathetic nervous system.
I was once one of these women. While healing from Chron’s disease 25 years ago, I discovered a way to engage with my feminine energies to activate the para-sympathetic nervous system. As a result, I was able to heal completely by re-balancing myself mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
My many years of research and counseling others has taught me that leading from presence is the key holistic and preventative approach to all aspects of our living.
Despite the incredible power of feminine energy, it may be one of the most mis-aligned, misconstrued and overlooked gifts of our time – especially by women themselves.
Leading from within is the way out…
What if I told you your mind is tricking you into believing you should DO more when it is really all about allowing yourself to BE more of who you really are?
There IS a fundamentally different way you can learn to lead your life that will shift everything from struggle to greater ease.
Being present and leading from the feminine is about honoring all aspects of who you really are…instead of the things you have been taught you are supposed to be…
Let me be clear, leading from the feminine is not about sex or gender; it’s about ENERGY. In my work as an Empowerment Mentor I encourage women to awaken to their essence – their natural abilities and potential. I teach them to build on their strengths. Often, their greatest strengths have not received much attention because they have been preoccupied with trying to overcome their weaknesses. That is totally a masculine approach. It rarely works for women. At least, not long term.
Leading from the feminine is not about eliminating the masculine….it is about mastering the dance of the feminine AND masculine energies each of us have within us. In our masculine-heavy society we are witnessing this imbalance every day and know that a shift is beginning to occur that can help make our world a happier, healthier place.
This is where it begins. Within each of us. The feminine is our being and the masculine is our doing. When we lead from the feminine and use the masculine, we become more compassionate with ourselves and others. And just as I did when I healed from my illness, we learn to respond by unifying and loving vs. react by resisting and fighting. When this happens, things naturally seek a balance and whether it is your body, your emotions, your relationships or your business, you can accomplish much with greater ease.
