Awake Your Soul

I’ve been noticing something lately in the world of Do Gooding entrepreneurs. Something big. Something angry. Something tender. Something done.

I’ve been seeing more and more exhaustion. Burnt out-ness. Loneliness. Frustration. Hopelessness. Disheartedness with “how things are supposed to be done.”

I’ve been feeling the loss of heart. Of soul. Of path. Of power.

And watching as you give your power to others whom you may not even deeply trust.

Deep in my heart of hearts and soul of souls, I want it to end. I want to scream that it doesn’t have to be that way. I want to whisper that your soul knows more than you’re seeing right now.

I want to share how stunning it can be to walk with grace and ease. To build your business and life standing firmly in your Self. To know that you are not alone. To know that there are ways to do it all with integrity, with love, with the world in your heart.

I awoke this morning at 2am with a song in my head that I had to share. It’s for my Do Gooders trying to build a business in industries that lack higher conscience….at the same time as not losing their minds, hearts and souls:

From Mumford & Sons, “Awake my Soul”….

How fickle my heart and how woozy my eyes
I struggle to find any truth in your lies

And now my heart stumbles on things I don’t know
My weakness I feel I must finally show

Lend me your hand and we’ll conquer them all
But lend me your heart and I’ll just let you fall

Lend me your eyes I can change what you see
But your soul you must keep, totally free

awake my soul…
awake my soul…

In these bodies we will live,
in these bodies we will die

Where you invest your love,
you invest your life

I have seen people invest all their resources (time, energy, money) into quick fix strategies that only leave them feeling alone and like a failure. Myself included.

It’s time to look for the truth, not outside of yourself, but within. It’s also time to allow your truth to be seen, as vulnerable as it can be, even while you are still exploring it.

Hold tight your heart and allow it to guide you. Free your soul from all the shoulds that only bind you into a box you can’t bear. Hold each others’ hands and know that this work and this world will be built in community. Hold mine as I myself step more and more into this very space.

Know that this is your one life. Your chance to live and die by your love. To choose a path that lights your life and the lives of others through all you do.

And deeply, truly, wholly…we will conquer it all.

With love, admiration, support and hope for you and your work.

 

This song is worth having in your head.  It ignites what you know, love and hold dear…and asks you to follow it with all your heart and soul.
