Top 4 challenging lessons of 2014

Are you interested in creating a life and career you absolutely love? So am I. Join me here to manifest exactly that in 2015.

The way we close a cycle, is the way we open a new one.

To close 2014, I want to share my deep gratitude to the most challenging situations that actually helped me to leap into the woman I set myself to become this year.

Back in 2008, I committed myself to living a Soul Directed Life. It has been a bumpy road, as I had to discern and unlearn many, many things I believed about myself , life and business .

By 2013, I felt I had enough roots to expand by glowing even more who I really am. In a nutshell, my Soul Centred Resolution for 2014 was “I am expanding by my full self expression.” And so life provided me with the most funky teachers and lessons for me to experience just that.

As I seat today to close this year, here it goes to the Universe : I am deeply grateful for the greatest teacher of all, Life itself, and the following lessons :

Lesson #1 Dealing with public criticism : Earlier this year I was publicly criticised and my work questioned. Theses never easy to deal with, even less when it comes from a person you collaborated with in the past, to whom you shared a community and you thought you could trust. Just before this episode happened, I had body signs that betrayal was around the corner. So I was kind of prepare to receive something . Yet is always surprising and painful when the teachings come from people you trusted in the past.

Life can be really funky in the way it teaches you things. I opened up to the experience, dealt with the whole thing and came back to life stronger than I could have ever imagined. More clear on my purpose, mission and message. I learned by experience that the more you act from a place of love, respect and inner truth, nothing can touch you, not even the worst critics or comments about you and your contribution behind your back.

I am so deeply grateful for this experience that helped me to increase my discernment and trust even more my body signs.

Lesson #2  My relationship to money  : the second biggest initiation of this year was trough an in depth exploration of my relationship to money. In October I started to see a pattern on my relationship to money. So I sat down to have a “conversation” with its energy. Then I sat a bit longer to explore the example I received from my mother and my father : how was their relationship to money ? It became all crystal clear. And as we know, clarity is the first thing we need in other to transform anything. The most important discovery was the feeling of guilt around money, that was constantly pushing me to please others and give to others before myself or my business.

I am deeply grateful for having had the strength to gain this clarity and actually transform forever my relationship to money.

PS: yep, money flew in as soon as I changed my beliefs around it.

Lesson #3  Finding growth out of my comfort zone  : Of course I know growth can be only experienced out of my comfort zone. Yet I could clearly see how my energies, business and creativity were stagnant by mid 2014. I had created an amazing online course for women to leap into the best version of themselves – I had put together all my best content, practices and had designed plenty of bonuses. Yet the program was seating on my computer. I was not playing the bigger game and making the biggest impact possible I really wanted to make. So where was the barrier ? What was the story, my excuse, for not making the things happen ? In my mind, I had to figure out how to bring all together alone.

Yes, I though I could do it. There is so much information out there on how to bring your business to the next level, that i thought I would figured it out.

Months were passing by and the resolution that I had set for 2014 on expansion was calling me.

Yet I was resisting to make that one single step that would make all the difference (because it is always like this : one single step, and the path opens up for you !) .

So with the help of my life partner, who actually made me see even more clearly my excuses (he is very good at it !) I could finally recognise and accept I needed specific guidance to put the program together and play a bigger game !

I am currently working with two business coaches that are helping me to take that leap in my business, which is my contribution to the world !

I am deeply grateful for my partner, my coaches and myself for believing in my vision and recognising that I don’t have to do it alone ! 

Lesson #4 Casting the Circle  : I actually made peace with the idea of casting my circle. defining the people I want to be surrounded with has been an essential part of experiencing support, inspiration and love – From the people I follow, to followers, subscribers, clients, partners, and places I go. Following the episodes of lesson #1, I grew stronger to set boundaries. The moment I started to do that, everything shifted into even more alignment with my vision and message. Combined with lesson #2, I completely stopped trying to please people (from family members to clients !).

I am deeply grateful for having the courage to cast the circle that empowers me and helps me to become the best version of myself ! 

When you transform your challenges into blessings, magic comes back into your life.

Magic is a change of perception.
