You are called to get out there and share the message of your heart…

But this terrifies you?

You are not alone.  More and more heart-centred leaders, especially women, are giving voice to this fear. I’m convinced it is a primal fear women are being called to move beyond, to change the story and create an evolutionary shift.

That we need more women as brilliant radiant role models, leading with love, sharing powerful, positive messages of compassion and possibility is not in question.  And the great thing is that more and more women are being called to step up and share their wisdom and intuition.  And they are.  Just that it is happening in the fringes, not the mainstream.  Yet.

Fears include being publicly shamed and humiliated (my own personal favourite), that no one will be interested, no one will listen, a fear of being killed, of being shot, of being dismissed, of failing, of losing the most important people you hold dear, and of just not knowing how to be visible in the world. And when we listen to and believe these fears they are strong motivation to return into hiding, remain on the fringes, keep quiet and tell yourself it’s not quite the time, when I’ve got a bit more money, when I….

We are waking up to the cost of hiding.  The individual mental, emotional, spiritual and financial cost of not showing up for the life you know it is true in your heart for you to live.  Then comes the cost to society with our systems absent of heart, values, emotional intelligence they have given way to corruption, rising greed and self-interest across the board – in politics, media, business, banking, sport, the list it goes on. Personally, I love the theory that if more women had been present in the banking sector there would not have been such a testosterone imbalance and limits would not have been pushed so extremely, the economic crisis would not of happened.

One explanation given for the absence of women and heart-centred leaders in the mainstream and the terror faced by women who want to step up is the five generations of witch-hunts – women burnt, drowned, tortured and killed for expressing their wisdom, heart and natural abilities to heal.  For five generations mothers told daughters to hide their true nature to stay safe, to stay alive.  Eventually, no one is left alive to remember a time when women were visible and powerful leading with love.

Flip this around as a solution and we simply need to create five generations of brave, courageous, big-hearted women leading with love, visible, powerful, sharing their wisdom and compassion and greatness. Women are ready, the world is ready, it’s crying out!  Step-by-step it can and will be done.

If you have a positive, powerful message for the world and a desire to share your true message join us for the next PR with Heart Online.  We want and need your heart-centred leadership visible in the world.

  • Hi Kat! Yes, it is difficult to put yourself out there, as people can be harsh. As I take a first step in becoming more public by beginning my blog, it has been the support network that I’ve pulled around myself that has given me the courage to go forth. I am grateful for role models such as Marianne Williamson, Sheryl Sandberg, and Margaret Sanger. They are calling us for back up. As more women take a first step forward, it becomes easier to find and gather a support network, so that together we can continue forward in their direction.

      Hi Julie, So glad you have a great support network – absolutely key. That is why I love the PR with Heart Group Consultancy so much – all the support, warmth, wisdom of the group creates a lot more courage and fun doing it together than standing alone. Adding Liz Gilbert to that list – grateful for her although she could definitely amp up her visibility 🙂 x x
