I am Lilith. Not someone you’d expect to come to speak to you about business, surely.
Yes, I’m the woman who was demonized for refusing to lie beneath Adam, my former and only husband. I sought other lovers as was my right as a sovereign woman.
Some call me a Goddess. Today, I wish to come to you as your personal Adviser.
It’s time to open the door to your real, blood-thirsty desires. Yes, the ones you keep putting on the backburner for more “important” tasks. These desires became starved sharks waiting to rip apart their prey. They are desperate and despondent. They need you to walk away from Eden.
It’s the place where you stay because it’s comfortable. It’s the old, ratty blanket that you’ve held onto for wayyyyy too long. LET GO!
It’s the sort of uninspired innocence that begets a dull spirit. Just take a deep breath and walk out of the Garden. There are new trails to be blazed. New sights to be seen. New adventures to breathe in.
We are not children anymore.
Don’t delay. Your days on earth are not unlimited.
“Time to break free and roar!” Amy Palko, Goddess Guidance with Amy, my monthly Goddess reading which inspired this post.
Start the New Year as a true innocent … see the world through your new eyes!
Spin, jump, twirl!
What beauty you have missed! What tastes you have refused to savor!
Do not miss out on your life. Your soul depends on you to treat it with the respect it requires. Your business would not exist without your soul.
How could it?
Every action that you take to make connections, more money, more content, more promotion is directed by your soul. Or, at least it will now!
Your soul does not compromise, contrary to popular belief. It screams at you … in its pain and fury.
What does your soul want? It wants to be autonomous and free to move and to experience bliss.
That is your life’s work.
Yes, that’s it.
Now get to it!
Lilith came through strongly this month as an ally and guide to help me restructure my business and my life.
She is a Goddess uninterested in conventional thinking or ways of doing things. When she showed up for me through my monthly Goddess Guidance reading with Amy, her message came through crystal clear!
The time is now to change how I work + with whom I work. And she is calling for no less than radical change – not the wimpy “false starts” that feel like change when in fact, I’m just taking another sideroad back to Eden.
When the door opens to the New World, the trumpets sound and loud thunderous roars of an angry Yahweh will greet you. Be brave. He’s bluffing! (Take it from Lilith.)
And, when you’re not feeling courageous enough to walk through that exit out of Eden, you can call on this tribe to be alongside you (see my Enchanted Entrepreneurs Circle).
When you need a healing balm to soothe your tired, world-weary soul, try a hot oil bath and float with the mermaids for awhile. They will speak to you. Hold you and love you. (You can also treat yourself to Aparna’s 40-day Ayurveda self-care immersion that I told you about last week.)
And, I leave you with encouraging words by poet John O’Donohue:
When the light around you lessens
And your thoughts darken until
Your body feels fear turn
Cold as a stone inside
When you find yourself bereft
Of any belief in yourself
And all you unknowingly
Leaned on has fallen
When one voice commands
Your whole heart,
And it is raven dark,
Steady yourself and see
That is is your own thinking
That darkens your world
Search and you will find
A diamond-thought of light,
Know that you are not alone
And that this darkness has purpose
Gradually it will school your eyes
To find the one gift your life requires
Hidden within this night-corner.
Invoke the learning
Of every suffering
You have suffered.
Close your eyes
Gather all the kindling
About your heart
To create one spark.
That is all you need
To nourish the flame
That will cleanse the dark
Of its weight of festered fear.
A new confidence will come alive
To urge you towards higher ground
Where your imagination
Will learn to engage difficulty
As its most rewarding threshold!
