When I was studying Tarot, I fell in love with the Hermit. The Hermit on top of the mountain shines the lantern’s light so people following the path can see their way up. I internalized that image knowing that I am partially through this journey, walking upon my path. As a result, I can turn around and shine my light down for other people who have just begun. I can hold the light for others who are not as far along.
As a coach, just because I put myself in the position of mentoring, helping other people, doesn’t mean I know it all. In fact, I sometimes have learned more from coaching sessions than what my clients do. I am constantly getting revelations. Clients come to coaches with problems that they need solved; but in reality, it is also ‘stuff’ we need solved.
Importantly, remember to embrace this mindset: we can share what we already know. We are not teaching people who are in the same experience as we are. We need to help people that are coming up. Give them a hand. We are qualified to do that. As long as we stay open to continue learning and learn from others, learn from the Universe and maintain growth, then we can continue to help them progress as we progress.
A lot of people compare themselves to others and they get stuck. First, look at how successful you already are. In a presentation, I heard that the odds for us in our DNA composition, our unique package are 1 in 44 trillion that sperm and that egg got together, and created us in exactly the same form. If we look at our life experiences, just in general, and if we look at our unique experiences, that’s like 1 in 100 trillion – there is nobody else that is put together the same way. So, look at yourself as a unique individual with unique experiences and perspectives, and how you can share that.
Also, somewhere, there are crowds of people waiting to hear your specific story based on your experiences. Even though we are unique in the experiences, everybody can probably draw a parallel to our experiences.
People need to hear it in our voice. We are doing a disservice to humanity by not speaking our truth, by not owning those gifts. There are a lot of people who are seeking. All of us who are healers, we are seeking. Just imagine if the voice that led you to the decisions, to education, to new growth; what would happen if you decided not to be able to speak?
You have a responsibility to share your story and ‘pay it forward’. Take your experiences and look at them, somebody gave it to you, now look to give it to somebody else. The bottom line is those people that are seeking will always be seeking until they find something, so why can’t it be you? Why are you going to let them go someplace else? And, they may not get the message, the perspective that you can bring to them. It may help them change their lives in some form.
For me, I see it with my tweets every day. People’s worlds are changing with one tweet at a time. Every day I hear messages on how a little tweet made an impact in that person’s day. Every day I get a message that it came at the right time, thanks for the reminder, great thing, I want to be able to share this.
So, there are a lot of ways to share your voice. We do not know who is going to hear it, or how it will impact their lives. We need to be able to share it for the sake of sharing it, knowing it will make a difference. We may not know where it will make a difference, but it will!
There is a stream of consciousness that flows, and the Universe will use every medium possible to be able to deliver the message, and where it needs to be able to be. Serve the World and touch people’s lives!
