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.

The Book of Dharma

I’ve been enjoying working with Simon Haas, author, The Book of Dharma: Making Enlightened Choices. Simon’s book explores timeless teachings from India on how to consciously direct your life by improving the quality of your choices and makes this ancient wisdom easily accessible to us to live our highest potential today.

Over 4,000 copies have already been sold by word of mouth alone with readers sharing that they are transforming their lives as they choose careers, relationships and life experiences aligned with their purpose.

Simon Haas, author of The Book of Dharma: Making Enlightened Choices: “We put a lot of energy into improving our abilities and knowledge but not so much into improving the quality of our choices. And yet it is the choices we make throughout our life that define us. The Book of Dharma shares a powerful tool for transformation and for living more consciously. Making wise choices is part of the ancient art of ‘skill in action’.”

As a young boy, Simon began studying the sacred writings of India and spent 10 years living in temple monasteries in India. He apprenticed for 16 years with an elderly master practitioner in the Bhakti tradition, within an unbroken line of teachers going back many generations. He now focuses on making the teachings of ancient India accessible and gives seminars and workshops internationally on The Dharma Code.

You can get hold of the book on Amazon in Kindle and Paperback or download the first 50 pages of the book for free at www.bookofdharma.com.

Painting inspired Belle

If you haven’t yet, please do see Belle, the British drama directed by Amma Asante, written by Misan Sagay, and produced by Damian Jones.

This is the wonderful, true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, the illegitimate mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay and an African woman, probably a slave, from a Spanish vessel in the Caribbean.  On her mother’s death Sir John places Dido in the home of her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield who happens to be the Lord Chief Justice.  Their relationship plays a key role in the abolition of slavery.

The film is inspired by the painting of Dido with her cousin and companion Lady Elizabeth Murray at Kenwood House. There are painful scenes of the two women shopping for potential husbands with both men and women appraising each other according to social rank, financial status and skin colour. That is until Dido meets an idealistic young vicar’s son with the conviction and focus to change society.

Apart from the uplift of enjoying a wonderful story I’m left convinced that if we can upgrade and abolish slavery there is absolutely no reason we cannot do the same in current day. Upgrade and abolish energy that is polluting, upgrade and abolish banking that is corrupt, upgrade and abolish business that is diseased by corporate greed and exploitation.

And I’m reminded of the important role that women have in leading the way. If Dido Belle, a young mixed race woman can be brave enough to speak out and take actions for a better world at a time when this was unheard of what are we waiting for?

And I’m reminded that the way of the upgrade is Love.  The film suggests it was Lord Mansfield’s love for Belle that lies at the heart of his decision and ruling on a case that led to the abolishment of slavery. Love gives us the insight and courage to take the brave action beyond the patterns we are accustomed to that is so needed in times of upgrade.

For as Sir John Lindsay says in the movie: “What is right can never be impossible.” No more excuses, only courage.

Thank you Dido Belle Lindsay.

I’ve created opportunities that allow me to be myself and share the messages that I care about.  I’ve created speaking opportunities, the website and business have been growing.  The way I interact with people has changed – I’m much clearer about what I’m doing and I don’t hesitate or wait to take action.
