I have a voice and I will use it to create the most powerful, positive change for our Mama Nature I can.
I was reminded this week of the power and responsibility we hold when we share online… Actually the power and responsibility we hold as humans. Every single day.
Think of the most profound, transformative and life changing moments, situations, experiences and people in your life. Do you think those people know the impact they have had on you? They may not even know you. Even if you did tell them how impactful they’ve been, although you’ll remember that forever, they probably very quickly forgot. Why? Because we are continuously playing down our importance, our power, the potential and opportunity we have for creating an impact, making a difference. A small difference or bigger than we’ll ever know or appreciate in one or many people’s lives. We’re taught and we’re told, (think tall poppy syndrome etc.) that we don’t matter. I don’t matter. What I have to say doesn’t matter.
I’ve been writing and sharing my little pondering’s sporadically online for a couple of years, to a few people, sometimes I forget that people may even read it. This week after sharing a post about the toxins contained in a popular skin care product, something I’ve been aware of for so long I forget others might not be, an old friend reached out, thanking me for sharing the valuable information before the birth of their first babe and alerting them to the hidden toxins contained in so many products. And thanking me for putting him onto chickweed pesto all those months ago. It sounds funny but I was happy, stoked, surprised, staggered. I don’t hear much from my people but to hear the small but big impact made on one person, one family, is everything. It’s all of it. And remember, we’ll never completely know or understand the magnitude of our impact every day, in every way. We just don’t realise the power and responsibility each of us holds for creating a positive impact, for being a part of a wave of huge positive change that is sweeping our Earth.
Which brings me to why I do what I do. I’ve always struggled with feeling like what I have to say doesn’t matter. Maybe it comes from growing up constantly losing debates with my overly intelligent, academic father, when that’s not the way my mind works. In fact my mind is mostly in the back seat, it’s my heart and soul that drives the show and I’ve only just learnt that that is ok! Oh how much we didn’t know.
Maybe it comes from an emotionally abusive relationship that I left feeling I had nothing to say worth listening to. Maybe it’s just one of my major areas for healing, growth and expansion in this lifetime. I have a feeling it’s one of our major collective areas for healing, growth and transformation. To awaken to our power. Regardless, I now know I am not the only one to feel this way.
What is this feeling? It’s disempowerment. Was does disempowerment do? It trick us into feeling that we have no choice, no hope, no power to make change. What can we do? It’s so hopeless. It’s so sad, so bleak, so destructive, so heavy, so dark, so…
For me this centred around what we were doing to our Mother Earth, and I just slowly died inside.
The core of my own healing, our healing, has been coming to see, feel, understand my own power, our own power to create. Create our thoughts, words, feelings, energy, actions, life. This is what Conscious Life is all about.
From this space life is light and hope filled, healing, growing, expansive, inspiring.
Conscious Life, me, has been and will continue to be on an ever changing, ever growing, ever expanding, awakening journey. As an outlet of my creative self expression, Conscious Life has and will continue to go through many incarnations. I’m not the person I was when I started Conscious Life, or even last week! Maybe not the consistency of a successful brand, but the authenticity of my heart and soul.
So I owe it to you, my self, my people, if you’re still reading, to explain how I got here, how we got here.
My heart and soul called me to doTERRA. And it took 4 years and clearing some MASSIVE personal blocks around self worth and money to finally say YES to what my heart and soul had been asking of me for 4 years. I’ll write a full blog post about that too because again, I bet I’m not the only one to have these blocks, blocking your growth, expansion, happiness, fulfilment in life. Holding your soul back from what it’s being called to do.
Anyway, I finally said YES a year ago. I said yes to stepping out of the way and becoming a channel for bringing powerful healing to a world that so desperately needs it. I said yes to clearing my own blocks and my own shit so I could get out there and talk to people and find them and share with them what they have been so desperately looking for; a way to make a significant difference in their own lives, in their families, communities and the world at large. I said YES to empowering myself and my family so that we could empower others, our community and yes, the world at large.
We empower ourselves and others on SO. MANY. DIFFERENT. LEVELS. We empower ourselves with knowledge, with the wisdom to listen to ourselves, our inner guiding voice, our intuition, our connection to Mama Nature, to Source. We empower ourselves with pure, potent, powerful, effective, natural healing that works, gifted to us straight from Mama Nature. We empower ourselves and others by learning and teaching how to clear our lives of toxins and waste. We empower ourselves and others by building strong communities and support systems, co creators, co collaborators, connections, teams, friends, families. We empower ourselves and others by making significant changes and differences in the way we live our lives. We empower ourselves and others by bringing financial healing to ourselves and showing others how to do the same. This is HUGE in New Zealand, so many people struggle, and financial healing is open to everyone, there are NO prerequisites, ANYONE can do this.
2 weeks ago, at doTERRA Leadership in Auckland, I felt the power in my body of sitting in room with 130 other humans that completely hold the same vision. Above all the learning, growth and inspiration from that weekend, that was the most powerful thing for me, that I took away.
doTERRA means gifts of the Earth and as Wellness Advocates and partners with doTERRA we are just stewards of that. Just stewards of these powerful, healing gifts of the Earth. That Mama Nature wants us to use to heal ourselves on all levels for the benefit of all life. Do you see how imperative it is for us to do that? Heal ourselves for Her? And Mama Nature, boy is she powerful, and wise and intuitive and a part of us.
I’ve always been a servant of Mama Nature. It was Her that called me here and I know beyond a doubt I am finally listening to her calling. I am literally working for the plants, bringing much needed healing to the world. Maybe just one small impact at a time. With the understanding that I’ll never fully appreciate the totality and magnitude of that impact but with the vision and trust that it’s these small impacts that create the unstoppable wave of positive change.
As I sat in that room, I listened and saw the impact these people, this company and yes the essential oils and Mama Nature have had on the lives of so many people and communities. I know beyond a doubt that I am, we are an integral part of a ripple that is creating a wave of positive change and healing. I can see and feel the power, potential and opportunity for positively impacting limitless peoples lives through this.
Well that’s enough for me for today. It’s the start of my imperfect but authentic action. No longer will it seem too hard, too overwhelming to start, to speak up, to do. I’ll just start with my heart and soul and act in the moment of inspiration and trust in Mama Nature and my intuition and do the things I’m called to do before my mind can stop me. My promise to myself and you is that I will update this website by the end of the school holidays and not hold back from keeping you updated on aallll the goodness. And I promise I have so much more goodness to share, and I promise to myself I'll not stand in the way of sharing it!
I hope you enjoyed reading a snippet of my story. Maybe you were reminded of why you are here at all. More than anything I hope I inspired something in you, connected with a deeper truth within you. Prodded the servant of Mama Nature within you too. I’d love you to leave me a comment if you feel moved to and of course reach out to me if you’re curious to learn more.
All my love,
