We’re in the Age of the Individual Message.
And these are very, VERY powerful times…
In fact, I believe we’re at a pivotal point in humanity’s history. A crossroads between evolution and extinction.
On the one hand, we’re witnessing progress like never before. Advancements that would have felt implausible even a generation earlier.
But on the other, we’re seeing systems and structures (many of which we’ve relied on for centuries) failing at a catastrophic level. As a species, we’re destroying habitats, pillaging our planet, and hurting each other. We’ve detached ourselves from nature and in doing so, we’ve disconnected from ourselves.
The current duality is driving a deep desire for change and transformation. Not little nudges. Instead, there’s a calling for seismic shifts.
And as we unlock the courage to acknowledge what’s broken, we can begin to work together to create an existence that’s more sustainable, more harmonious, and more healthy – for us all.
But how the heck do we do all that?
I hear you; it feels like a mammoth task, which is overwhelming in many ways.
And if you’ve also been looking on with increasing despair and dismay at the scale of problems we’re facing, then you too will have felt the frustration, disillusionment, and even anger.
But in amongst the chaos and catastrophes, there’s hope.
Because while global times are changing, so is our experience and power as individuals.
These challenges are shifting something inside of us too. They’re awakening a deep, overlooked power that we can finally use.
That’s because now – more than ever – us ‘little’ people have a chance to make a big difference. We have the platforms and resources we need to make a stand, have a voice, and even inspire a movement.
You don’t need to be a celebrity to make your mark. You don’t need a TV show or a book deal either. Instead, you can impact from your laptop, your phone, your social media profiles, your blog, your website…
While digital media has crowded our headspace and overwhelmed us with information, it’s also created opportunities for impact-driven people (like us), to create an almighty dent.
Thanks to modern tech, we get to spark meaningful conversations that change minds and open hearts.
We can ignite the type of transformation that makes us feel better about ourselves and our lives.
And as more and more people take baby steps towards more harmony, love, freedom, and authenticity, collectively we create a giant leap forward.
That’s the real magic in all of this…
You don’t need to change the world by yourself!
In fact, the change you can inspire doesn’t need to be front page news and it doesn’t have to stem from an Instagram army of hundreds of thousands (although that would be nice!)
Your message is potent and invaluable even if it affects a handful of people.
In fact, even if it affects JUST YOU.
That’s because the ripple effect doesn’t stop once you’ve kick-started it.
One small shift inspires another… then another.. and then another…
If you choose to walk and talk the message that life has taught you, then the world instantly becomes a brighter place – because you are living a fuller expression of your truth.
Which is why the more people who take a stand for who they are and what they have, the better off we’ll ALL become.
As the Dalai Lama said, “world peace starts with inner peace.” In other words, global change starts with you… which is both inspiring and damn empowering 🙂
It’s a little nerve wracking too because it’s a reminder that we have to take responsibility for the life we live and the planet we live on.
I believe we need to unlock the message we were born to share – and then become fearlessly visible with it. It’s time to recognise that we hold a piece of someone else’s jigsaw – and when we hold up that piece for the right people to find, life shifts.
I believe we need to dive into our hearts, unlock our soul, and get crystal clear on what we came here to say in this lifetime. And I don’t mean the superficial, safe, wishy-washy stuff!
Nope… I mean the whole truth of it.
The words that burn your insides with passion.
The ideas that make your heart sing and crack open.
The insights that send a shiver down your spine because they’re dripping with profound truth and deep wisdom.
Walk it. Breathe it. Share it. Speak it. Dance with it. Cultivate it. Nurture it. Evolve it. Grow it. Grow with it
I believe this is the path that will ensure we are seen and heard for who we truly are (one of life’s most precious gifts).
This is deep work. It’s moving work. It’s work that will unlock you, unfurl you, unravel you, and unwrap you.
That’s because the message you were born to share isn’t somewhere ‘out there’ waiting for you to find it. In fact, all that external stuff is a mere distraction!
Instead, the message you were born to share is woven deep into the fabric of your being.
It’s a message made of the unique shades of your personality, your life experiences, your philosophies, values, beliefs, and vision for a fuller life that’s more reflective of your truth, your hopes, and your desires.
The lessons life has taught you – which can be found when you join up the dots looking backwards.
The personal stories that drive your growth and inspire others when we share them.
The big idea that wakes up your passion while stirring others to reach out for what they want.The rawest and truest expression of your heart and soul.
