Today’s question is from Sarah about losing motivation and passion and she writes…..

“I have worked hard in the communications industry for the last 12 years and am proud of what I have accomplished but just recently I have been losing big clients. There’s a variety of reasons, downsizing, budget constraints, requiring different services we can’t supply.
I have lost motivation and passion. Ultimately, I want to be an influencer and I don’t know what to do or focus on.”

Great question

let’s break down what is happening.

On the outer reality, there is a lot of change, change you are unable to control which could appears to be jeopardising the viability of the business.

On an inner level, there is change too, you mention lost motivation and passion. This is coming from within and at the same time, clients are falling away. Something is dying to create space for something new to be birthed. It’s this space of not doing which is necessary for gestation which causes discomfort, as we are always trying to fill space with “doing”

How do you find motivation and passion again?

I will sum by saying. It is not in the doing but the being, where you will gain the clarity of the next steps.  Be still and access another part of you to regain focus. The motivation and passion will return.

So Let me start by asking…Is being an influencer calling from within or is it a conceptual identity that you think will give you happiness?

You have a desire to be an influencer and currently you are a company director.

As an influencer, you would be someone who has established credibility in a specific industry. Who potentially has access to a large audience and can influence and motivate others by your value, authenticity and reach.

As a business owner, you are the figure head of the company, who makes decisions to run the company successfully and at profit.

Both roles call for different skills and perceived identity

One is more management orientated within the physical structure of the business and the other has a more of a teaching quality and persona outside as well as within the business.

So are you ready to change this about yourself?

So here are some steps

  • Let go of your identification with the current business. It does not define you irrespective of how many years you have been playing a particular role in it.

     

  • As this challenging period occurs, confusion surfaces and negative emotions can run rampant. Do not react negatively to what is occurring as it will only serve to reinforce the focus on what you do not want. Ie. Fear that the business will collapse, leaving you in debt.

Be present to what is, acceptance allows for space and clarity to emanate through. Intuitive and inspirational impulses follow when the decks are cleared.

  • Take some time out, quiet time out – not a night out on the bubbles. creating space in your life allows new inspiration, renewal and a reboot to take place.
  • An innocent curiosity creates the space whilst courage slides pas the fear. Try seeing this situation as an interesting adventure with an open positive expectation, even though you don’t know what’s next.

And just in case you think you need to give it all away – no.

“Being” doesn’t mean you stop the doing completely, it means you are more present whilst the action is occurring from an internally aligned place.

I will leave you with this

The comparison trap

Comparison leads to the separation and a state of unhappiness. So why do we do it?
In this episode, Lisa asks how to stop the comparison. We look at examples of when the mind perceives itself as lesser than or better than other people and how to bring about self-acceptance into our lives.

If you are wondering how to stop comparing yourself, we explore todays question from Lisa and she writes…..

“I have a graphic design business and even though I am relatively successful and enjoy what I do, when I view the work of other graphic designers, I can’t help comparing and then judge myself, seeing my work as inadequate. How do I stop the comparison game?”

We have all done it, compared ourselves to others, desiring to have more because what we think will make us happy is presently and perhaps painfully out of reach. We see what’s in the next lane and forget about our own value, dislocating and disconnected from our authentic selves.

Comparison takes many forms. It could be focusing on appearances, achievements, financial position, relationships, or education level.  Emotions such as jealously, envy and not being enough surface.

How do we stop comparing ourselves to others?

There are two ways to look at how comparison functions. You will either be satisfied with yourself or not, using others and your surroundings to derive a superficial benchmark of where you think you need to be.

Let’s start with being satisfied with yourself

  1. Seeing oneself with a heightened sense of self-worth can form addictive attachments, constantly dependant on the external world of things.

Eg. The work place has given you promotion after promotion, you are flying on a high, your sense of self is identified of your achievements and accolades. Then one day, you are made redundant after an organisation restructure. Fear, Loss and devastation surface.  Your sense of self is derived from the loss of your achievements and accolades.

If we look at not being satisfied with yourself

  1. Seeing oneself as lessor than equates to low self-worth fraught with heavy thoughts and emotions. Situations continue to trigger non-acceptance and are negatively endured.

Eg. A successful person in your industry who has achieved a lot, created positive impact and is financially free causes you to react to your perceived lack. Identifying with someone’s else’s life and aspiring for their successes removes you from your authentic alignment and what life wants to uniquely create through you.

When comparison occurs, it contracts and diminishes. It divides and conquers. Long term, it can only lead to unhappiness and separation.

To stop comparing, be mindful when it arises. Discern the thoughts in your head creating the story.  Eg. I don’t feel successful. Why does everyone else have what they want and I don’t?

It begins the process of disentanglement. Find and acknowledge the emotion that accompanies the story. Is it hopelessness, anger, disappointment? Be with these emotions, even if it causes discomfort.

Through observing the emotions, space is created, where negative thought is not occurring on repeat. Here lies the opportunity for deep understanding and dissolving of the false identity – the person who has accumulated labels and experiences on an outer level.

A direct experience of knowing, aliveness, and peace can permeate as resistance to painful emotions dissipates and dissolves. The ability to listen to your intuition also becomes more pronounced.

Here are some examples of turning comparison on its head.

  • Losing a job is met with neutrality and seen as an opportunity to expand into the unknown positively. If fear arises, then it is recognised as a function of the mind and another opportunity presents to dissolve and transform the negative energy.  Be present to it rather than reacting and fuelling it.
  • Rather than comparing oneself to another’s accomplishments, You turn it into acceptance and appreciation. Understanding another’s experience prompts upliftment and resonance. You are acknowledging the reflection and recognising the qualities and gifts already present within you.
  • Nothing anyone can say or do can disconnect you from your peace, connection and knowing. It is stronger than any mind based belief which wants to separate and look for reassurance in the opinions of others or things.

Here’s one of my favourite quotes by Anne Nwakama

A woman who walks in purpose doesn’t have to chase people or opportunities, her light causes people and opportunities to pursue her.

Why has my creativity disappeared?

Many of us have experienced creativity blocks at some point in our lives.
It could be easy to dismiss, sort of like the flu, believing the block will disappear eventually.
But what if your work is relying on it and the foggy haze comes up over and over again? Authentic consistent communication is your bridge to connect with people, so what’s preventing you from crossing it?

In today’s Q & A, Cara has sent in a video with her question asking to reveal the block preventing her creative juices from flowing to write songs. 

“I’m Cara and I’m a musician. I’ve been a musician for roughly 25 years. I’m a singer and a drummer and I play washboard and flute and I find that when I got to write, I get this blockage. I’m very hesitant in the fact that I know I should be writing, it’s almost like I’m procrastinating but it’s something I want to get through and this has been sitting with me for a couple of weeks now. I really want to move forward with this and past it.”

“I’m finding that there’s a synchronicity that keeps happening over the last few weeks where it might sound completely crazy but I’m going to put it out there anyway because it’s what’s been happening. I’ve been having moments where Aretha Franklin has been popping up. I know she’s recently passed away and then while in Notodden in Norway and that was about over a month ago, I had the pleasure of sitting in for breakfast at the hotel. We were playing a festival in Notodden blues festival and I reunited with the wonderful Barbara Blue from Memphis. She’s the queen of Memphis Beale Street, a blues singer, she’s an awesome woman and a I’m sitting there, she’s introducing me to this guy.”

“This gentleman that’s been sitting there for breakfast and “I say a little prayer” comes on the background music in the hotel and there’s this gentleman nodding his head and going like this (nodding his head to the beat)  and I’m being introduced to him and I don’t want to interrupt him and he’s the drummer of that song and was working with Aretha Franklin and he’s called Bernie Purdie. My whole body was resonating and I was in a flutter in my stomach, you know, you know cartwheels and I eventually got the courage to say “hello, I’m a real big fan of your music“ and you’re playing. You know being a drummer myself, like it completely blew my mind and I tried not to, you know, give him the flutters because the energy coming off me as ridiculous and that was another huge element that came into play. So, I’m just wondering is that anything to do with what is going on with the writing. If there’s something in that, should I look into this further? How do I explore this further?”

Thank you for your question Cara

Let’s look at your chart first and see what are some of your personal themes, followed what particular cycle is occurring now.

You have a Sun/Pluto conjunction in libra – an intense a powerful placement of self-discovery.              

Emotions run deep. Relationships are very important to you, as is creativity.            Transformation through relationships and artistic focus factor higher in life. With frequent periods of intense self-analysis, you don’t really have time for superficially and will seek out relationships with meaning.  You need change and seek growth so routine would not suit you at all.

However, the shadow or unexpressed emotional side is powerlessness in relationships, a need to belong, compromising your needs for that of others. This could lead to people pleasing and stagnancy if you believe that your growth would impact someone else negatively.

It could be easy for you to take things quite personally and wear critiscm and see yourself as wrong with the moon in Virgo. So harmonisation and avoiding conflict is the choice of the day but this need for evolutionary change and self-discovery also indicates a life where you create circumstances of contrast – what you don’t what to activate the deeper truths of what you do want.

Also with the Capricorn ascendant there’s a sense of being responsibility – it gives you value and focus. But too much responsibility for others could tip the scales between you and others.

For example, outshining your musical colleagues may result in being alienated and the relationships would break down.

Or believing that your sense of responsibility and duty to the musical team is more important than showcasing your talents and standing out or taking on too much of the work load, as a means to justify your value.

So a big theme emerges in your life about bringing balance to your relationships so they are equal, where you do not compromise your desires to please others. Also allowing your desires to manifest, owning your gifts and being unapologetic for having them.

At the foundation of avoiding yourself could be rejection and if this is mind chatter is dominating, this would certainly distract you from hearing your intuition directing you in where to go next.

This could feel like stuckness and obstacles because the head is trying to work out the next steps safely, not rocking the boat, drowning out the whispers of the heart to embrace your gifts.

The cycles occurring at the moment are transiting Uranus in Taurus squaring Jupiter in Aquarius and Uranus trining your north node in Capricorn.

It’s an activation about bringing forth your unique qualities and message. In other words, you are entering a period where you are going to another level and to show up more. It’s also activating an opening to move into authority and letting go of the past.             

Being aware of what no longer serves you and being focused on what you do want.

Nurturing self is also being invited to stop the doing-ness of helping others with their lives. It’s time to focus on your own life and what wants to be birthed through you.

Let’s take a look at Aretha Franklin, those interesting and timely synchronicities and connection to her.

Often when we resonate with someone well known or significant, they reflect something within us that is similar in character, journey or message.

Aretha Franklin was known as a brilliant singer with an iconic voice.

A strong female, a role model in the music industry, emotional, outspoken, she made no apologies for who she was, an activist with a courageous spirit.

So….

  • Is she inspiring you to use your voice uniquely and you haven’t been?
  • To bring your heart, soul and emotional voice to your music and you haven’t been?
  • She never compromised herself and her views. Is she asking you to do the same?              
  • To stand by your truth?                   
  • Is her presence asking you to belt out all of you regardless of your fears about being critiqued?                 
  • Are you that courageous spirit who has been shackled due to unfounded fears?

The block is pointing to stepping out of your comfort zone to own your voice and words. It’s unique, so accept and value your talents. It doesn’t matter what others think.

Fear of failure……a Virgo moon will use perfection to avoid it.

Well, what if you do fail?              

It’s only a signpost to something better. It’s usually when we take steps to do something differently, we are confronted by patterns of protection that say no, you will get hurt or experience failure.

If you step out into the world and shine, you will appear to risk more and yet you gain more.              Isn’t the latter more liberating to embody and live by?

Accept responsibility for your success, do not be so invested in other people’s success.  See yourself being appreciated not only others but primarily yourself.

Set time aside to meditate, then write what comes flowing through you naturally.

Don’t distract yourself by falling back into a comfort zone of other people’s problems and needing you. Take some time out to nurture and take care of you

And lastly use your voice with all of your presence, as a singer you have a message and that message comes through in the beauty of your lyrics and the sound of your voice.

I hope that helps Cara.

When abundance abandons you

When viewing abundance – and not just money, perception between one person and other can be at opposite needs of the spectrum. Variety is the spice of life. Right? It adds to the whole, but when you are living with family whose perception of wealth, abundance and happiness is in stark contrast to your own, do you find yourself diluted by a steady stream of bleakness?

If you are wondering how to extract yourself out of family drama about money and living an abundant life, we explore todays question from Nicole and she writes…..

“My husband and kids tell me to pull my head out of the clouds and we don’t have enough money. How can I help them understand there are endless possibilities to change our circumstances?”

Does this sound familiar?

You see what’s possible, they don’t

You share your insights and experiences, they dismiss it as hocus pocus and luck

You offer solutions, they don’t implement or forget what you have said

It leaves you feeling drained, disempowered and dejected.

Trying to change the scarcity perspective of others is a battle of minds and creates resistance as well as ongoing family drama.

Inspiration to irritation? Dreams to dread? Excitement to apathy?

Where has your focus gone? On their lack or your own path and the abundance on it?

Scarcity can feel like the life is being sucked out of you with a straw. It’s a perception of never enough and a constriction of not just physical needs but emotional needs too. Not enough love? money? food?

Where does change begin?

Not by beating the drum of the same story with the same people.

Every time you become annoyed or drawn into their lackful vantage point, you meet them at the same destination by engaging their egos and their vibrational stance.  It now becomes easy to be swept up in their slip stream and resistant to your intuition.

Reaction to their point of view causes resistance within you

Bring the focus back to you, accept your current experience as counterproductive as this sounds.

Accept how they are thinking presently.  Acceptance doesn’t mean you agree with the lack, rather you are not offering an argument, defence or negativity towards people and situations. This only serves to reinforce it.

In the absence of resistance, abundance flows and not just financially – all things enriching and desired can come into your life.

Focus on what is true for you without the need for assurance, approval or validation from others. Your change radiating from within creates change in others without the need to influence with words or you may witness their removal from your expansiveness, until ready to accept this within themselves.

Understanding the deeper drivers creating the standby effect with family and friends is important to consider.  Why you have been waiting for your family to listen to you and why have they not?

Being the priority in healing scarcity not only allows old negative emotions to surface about your own powerlessness but also awaken yourself to new possibilities and ideas.

It stops giving energy to what isn’t manifesting linked to the circle of well-meaning naysayers. It appears that they are not granting permission to expand which may be an excuse and the distraction your mind is creating to keeping your own beliefs alive, fuelling your own scarcity, non-recognition or rejection.

Simply taking the time to still your mind to connect with your inner being, allows for space and dis-identification from negative thoughts and emotions of the past. Your truth will become apparent.

You can’t do anything about anyone else’s thoughts and reactions but you can do something about your own. It can only lead to empowerment.

Thank you for your question Nicole, possibilities are waiting for you
