These last 3 months have been a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, cheers and raspberries, insults and encouragement.Putting my life on the line and making it public has increased the level of feedback I have been receiving. The good, the bad, the ugly and the heart warming. I’ve had people email me to tell me that I am crazy, that I’ve got a massive ego, and asking me who the heck do I think I am.
I’ve also had people support me by contributing to my crowd funding campaign, open up their homes to me so that I have a place to stay between leaving my home and flying out.
People have sent me emails of encouragement, and one amazing Bosnian lady wrote me a poem in her native language and translated it into English. For every insult and backlash, I’ve had someone else supporting me and lifting me up.
And this has not only happened on an external level. Each time I have questioned myself and doubted myself, I have had a message, phone call or email from someone lifting me up. And if I have congratulated myself too much in a moment, I get humbled pretty fast by yet another insult or obstacle in my path.
If it weren’t for the incredible training and mentoring that I have received over the years, I would not have the understanding that this is all just the universe firstly telling me that I am on the right path and secondly the universe keeping me in a state of homeostasis, or otherwise said, balance.
Take a look at the video of one of my mentor’s Mitch Behan, and see what he has to say about how praise and reprimand work.
While being on either side of the scale can be emotional, there is a calm, centred awareness that comes from being balanced. I am so grateful that the universe supports us all and works to bring us all into balance.
From a state of balance is where I draw my personal power, my certainty and resolve. It is where I am able to touch people, move them and inspire them to remember who they really are and to dare to follow their dreams.
