I want to believe I am worthy to receive all that I want in this lifetime, to uncover my God-given light and listen to the whispers of my soul so I can finally know what my life’s true purpose is and live it fully. But I’m afraid of what I might discover along the way…I’m afraid of where the journey may lead me and the change it may require. What if what I want turns out not to be my destiny? I’m afraid to take that leap of faith into the unknown, because there is so much at stake and so many people relying on me.
If the words in this quote resonate at all with you, or if you are someone who took that leap of faith and is facing new challenges that are churning up fear, then I’m deeply grateful you found your way here. There is a path forward that guides you through your fear and connects you to your inner wisdom, enabling you to make life steps and choices from a place of pure worthiness, love, and desire instead of from fear or insecurity.
My loyal readers know I have not been writing profusely as I used to. The reason for this is I’ve been making a significant life shift during the past few years. I was blessed to have one of those seminal moments when I knew in an instant that everything was about to change; the meandering path of my life had led me face to face with my destiny: my own life’s true purpose. I realized that all the challenges of my life had led me to that place. And in that moment I did not have any fear; I had always known I was meant for something more, and my desire to finally experience it was stronger than the fear.
Having said that, once I knew I was on my path, the one destined only for me, fear took over on a recurring basis. I learned this is normal, that as we ascend to our divine purpose and try to live as our Higher Selves that this is when the real work of our lives begins. This is when we are challenged to evolve our souls and rise up.
I believe that is the real meaning of life: transcendent self-awareness and growth that enables us to evolve our souls and rise up to a higher level of consciousness, which for most of us means to release the deep-seated fears and feelings of unworthiness and insecurities that we either received in our DNA or absorbed during the course of our lifetime so that we may open our hearts to love abundantly and from a place of truth, purity, and grace. But it is SO incredibly hard to let go of these fears and feelings we carry within us for so many years. I have been working on releasing my own for the last few years now. It’s arduous work. Just when I think I’ve conquered my feelings of unworthiness, another layer exposes itself.
You might not expect this from a woman who has been successful in so many ways as defined by society. I’ve run a $750 million business, worked with hundreds of CEOs, and even had a blog post make its way to Harvard Business Review. I launched an eBook just for fun to help introverts and it hit the ‘Hot New Release’ list for a time on Cyber Monday 2011 (go figure) and I presented at a United Nations Conference in Geneva, Switzerland at the age of just 26. Most importantly, I have been blessed to be loved by my family and friends.
And yet, every time I sit down to ‘Write to Heal,’* and begin writing about what is holding me back from something, I discover there are feelings of unworthiness at the core. I know I’m not alone. I also know that I’m not the same woman I was years ago, last year, last month, or even last week. And the reason for all of this is several years ago I serendipitously walked into the home of Vanda Teixeira, met her husband and her son, and then had a conversation with her that changed everything for me.
Vanda was born with a gift from God that enables her to see what most of the 7 billion people on this planet will never see…our soul’s blueprints. That is simply her truth. She can see what we each are meant to be doing and what is blocking our way. She can see the fear, the greed, guilt, resentment, anger, doubt, the inability to forgive…everything that robs us of our joy and prevents us from hearing what our soul wants to tell us.
You see, I now believe from working with Vanda that our souls know our true path. They know who the people on our ‘soul teams’ are: the people we are meant to meet throughout our life who will guide us onto new parts of our path, those people we meet on Kairos Time (God’s time) and not always in Chronos Time (by our human calendars and watches). Our souls know who our ‘soul mates’ are, and the work we need to do on our own evolution before we cross their path.
I believe our souls want to give us all of this information, yet our human condition often blocks us from hearing the whispers. As Vanda says to me often, “Our souls are craving our attention. If people would make the time to listen…just imagine what would unfold.”
Today, Vanda is launching a Platform filled with her essence of unconditional love, light and wisdom for spiritual self-healing. It is called The Thread and it is an experience unlike any other…because it is the experience of light that has been threaded through Heaven and Earth. She is launching it to help every man, woman, and teen who is ready to awaken their own worthiness, uncover their own light, and listen to the whispers of their own soul to be able to do so, so that as many people on this planet as possible can truly live their life’s divine purpose.
The foundation of the Platform is what she is calling ‘Soulful Conversations.’ These are recorded conversations by Vanda designed to raise your awareness to who you are, and who you are being. Vanda will share wisdom that guides you through the process of truly connecting to your soul, uncovering and releasing the blocks in your life, and awakening the desires deep in your heart.
The first Conversation shares wisdom about the purpose and source of our human fears and how to begin letting them go, because when we asked people what they most urgently wanted to learn, that’s what they responded. Just as the quote at the beginning of this blog post foretold, fear affects every one of us as humans. What matters is the strength of our desire to overcome our own fears and our willingness to do the work to release them.
Every month on The Thread, people who sign up to be members will be able to listen to these Soulful Conversations and send questions that will be addressed in future months. These Conversations will focus on helping people in all areas of what Vanda refers to as our personal ‘5-pointed star’ – our life’s purpose, our work, our soul (romantic) love, our family & friend relationships, and our relationship with money.
There will be two additional types of Soulful Conversations and memberships, for a total of three taking place every month. The first of these additional Conversations is a Spiritual Business Conversation, where members will be guided by Vanda to understand at a very deep level how global leaders can change the world from a state of fear, lack, and in-security to a world of abundance by changing who we are being as businesspeople, as leaders, and as individual change agents. Vanda was inspired to create this area of focus in the wake of our three recent visits to the United Nations in New York City.
The final Conversation is designed for women, although men can certainly participate, and will take place in what we are lovingly calling our ‘Goddessa Salon.’ In these Conversations we will be talking about topics women would normally discuss on a ‘ladies night out,’ but at a sacred level.
It is my honor to invite you all to Vanda’s new Platform to take a peek around and see if it might be for you…or someone you love. Thank you for reading and for being part of this Visionary Leadership Community, it means the world to me. I hope I will see many of you on The Thread. ( CLICK THIS LINK to GO TO THE THREAD)
