How To Trust Your Callings + Lead With Authenticity

April 11, 2018

Every woman I’ve spoken to lately has shared with me that she has felt a calling deep within her to bring something to life — a business, an idea, a new career path — AND at the same time, that she’s not sure if she can trust that calling.

The thing about callings is that as we begin to take one tiny step in the direction of the calling, we discover, learn, and grow everything we need to know to take the next step, and so on.

Callings are sacred and snap us into alignment as we pursue them, step by step.

We forget this.

Instead, it feels TERRIFYING to really trust and put forth the necessary energy, time, & financial investments to bring our calling to life. 

Callings always choose us for a very special reason. 

We forget this.

But we look around thinking, “who, me!?” and start to believe that everyone else is doing it better than we can already, that the market is saturated, and that we couldn’t possibly be fit for this kind of leadership.

Callings initiate & invite us into our true power + leadership.

We forget this.

We think that we’re not ready yet, or that we don’t “know enough,” or that we need another degree to pursue the calling. 

Callings require us to stay devoted + to show up in our authenticity.

We forget this.

We think that in order to pursue our calling, we have to become someone else or warp ourselves into a pre-existing model we’ve seen before.

We forget that our callings are able to be trusted and
… that they are no accident
… that they chose US
… that we are perfectly set up to carry the torch for our cause
… and that as we take the first step and answer the calling, the resources to support us will appear.

We may need reminding, reflection, + support with the strategies and the “unknowns” along the way that reside outside of our own zone of genius so that we can stay in our mastery.

We will definitely need a like-hearted community of a similar “soul-set” who is walking the path with us, and who can relate to our unique struggles & successes — the days of the lone warrior are over, and it’s time to embrace support as strength. 

How to trust your calling + lead with authenticity

1. Travel back in time and look for all the little points of synchronicity that have led you to to be perfectly positioned to answer your calling. It may help to look at the defining moments that felt transformational for you, big life events, and special revelations you’ve experienced in your lifetime. Take note of what you were like as a child, what your innate interests and passions were, and the common threads in your lifetime.

2. Make a list of all the ways you are awesome, exactly as you are (quirks, imperfections, + all!). If you could zoom out the lens and view yourself from the view of the divine or of your higher self, how would you speak to yourself & what would you want your human self to know? Maybe write a little love note to yourself from the universe 🙂

3. Say YES to the calling & set your intention to be devoted. As we answer our callings, they have the opportunity to reveal themselves more fully to us. We open up space for synchronicity to emerge, resources to show up, & for the unknowns to work themselves out. Everytime I’ve ever said “YES” to a calling, and made the decision to stay devoted to my choice, I’ve been amazed at the magic that shows up to bring the calling or vision to life before my eyes, without me having to do much “efforting” at all! Try it, and see what happens for you!
