You are a multifaceted divine being and the quest for your gift, your purpose, your Genius, that thing that you have to share with the world is embedded in the unique self expression of who you are and what you love.
You see, in a way, you are very much like a puzzle.
A puzzle can contain hundreds or thousands of individual unique pieces. And it is in the assembling of all of those different uniquely shaped pieces, that the clarity and fullness of the picture can come in to view.
Your genius is a puzzle in this same respect. It will only come into clear view, when you have come to the understanding that every single piece of your life are all the individual pieces that come together to create the beautiful genius that lies at the core of your soul being. Who you are and how you express yourself, what you love, what you study, what you spend all night sitting up talking to your friends about, what you book your calendar with, what you line the shelves of your house and fill your cabinets with. ALL of this is YOUR unique self expression, the pieces to the puzzle that is your genius.
Only then, can you begin to gain clarity on the unique gift that only YOU can self-express into the world.
This is why there is no need to compare yourself to others.
No need to doubt your yourself and think, “Why would people want to purchase anything from me when they could go to another more skilled/better/smarter (fill in the blank with the word that comes out of your mouth) person?” or perhaps you just thin your gift and talents are stupid or too “woo woo” for some.
The thing is, that's complete fucking bullshit because nobody else EVER in this world has anything even remotely close or unique to the gift that ONLY YOU have to offer. Continued in comments below 👇
Just some words of wisdom from my trainer this morning.. It's hard to hold yourself up sometimes.
Especially when you've been at it a while and you're just tired...
It's ok to take that knee.. but you gotta get back up.. I know it's hard..
I know you're tired..
I know sometimes you just want to give up.. But take a look back at your life..
You've made it thru 100% of your worst days so far.. you can make it another.. Get back up..
Find your strength..
And hold yourself up.. Cause theres nothing that's going to keep you down!
Some of you may know me and I felt compelled to briefly introduce myself to those of you who are new and share a powerful lesson I learned this month thanks to some of my amazing mentors and friends in my life that applies to all of us in one way or another (so please bear with the long post, I have faith it will serve you). Some of my closest peeps call me their personal intuitive guide and the Modern Day Mother Earth. But in truth, I am simply Melissa and one who happens to just be deeply connected to and rooted in the magic and gifts of working with the plant spirit world and the natural cycles of the Moon and Earth. I am an herbalist, soul alchemist, disruptor, mother, intuitive, and holistic wellness mentor and guide (among a zillion other things for sure). My lesson and story to share is that for so long now I was trying to tap into a genius that was not mine. OUCH.
Meaning, while I have always followed the breadcrumbs of the things that light me up (and quite often speak of this in my lives and in my group Soul Creators), I was not myself realizing that the breadcrumbs lighting me up were in fact all aspects of my unique genius and gift.
5 years ago when my son was born it began with natural medicines for him, essential oils, CBD oil, learning about the toxicity and GMO’s in our food, tainted water, switching to a vegan lifestyle, discovering the world of what it means to be an anti-vax mom, creating my own natural and organic cleaning products, body products, laundry detergents, etc. You get the gist ;) Next stop, off to yoga teacher training. Then on to study herbalism for 2 years and plant spirit medicine in Costa Rica. Next, health coaching school.
Clearly, I was on a path of health and wellness and my home, life and studies was filled with it.
But then when I was “certified” to coach. I found no joy in the methods my school taught me on “what” to coach on or how to market. I resisted giving scripted sugar talks, networking at events, or helping people with diabetes.
I felt so lost and confused and it seemed so fucking hard to do the thing I thought I wanted to do. Where did I go wrong?
