I am super excited to write to you today about mixing spirituality with business!
I remember how my entire life I wanted to travel and have a luxurious, international business experience. I saw myself doing it. I saw myself in a well-respected position at a prestigious firm.
I wanted to wear the chic clothes, fly business class, and have a certain appeal. I really liked being that woman. It suited me!
I worked for a highly recognized top management consulting firm. I traveled and got to fly business class. Although I did not travel internationally for business, I did wear chic clothes I loved, and I felt really good about my life for quite a while. I worked at this consulting firm for 12 years.
About 18 months after adopting our daughter from China, I decided I wanted to stay home with her. I was bored with my prestigious job, and I had no idea what lay ahead. I just knew that I was ready for a major shift in my life.
While I had already started my yoga journey five years prior to leaving my job, I had no idea I was about to be catapulted into my spiritual journey.
I was uncontrollably drawn to the spiritual, and that also brought up some seriously big fears. All of a sudden I was faced with craving the spiritual path and believing that it would mean I’d have to give up all the things I love:
I lived in such an either/or world, I had no idea that my spiritual path was to learn to merge all the things I truly love in the world: spirituality, business, luxury, elegance, clean food, money, healthy body, healthy mind, entrepreneurship, people, places, philanthropy! And so much more…
All these facets of me are meant to be integrated for my highest spiritual evolution during this lifetime. These facets are meant to be fulfilled for my highest good and the highest good of all those I serve. All of these facets are to be manifested for my full self-expression!
What a gift, that there is absolutely NOTHING I have to give up! Ever!
I had a magnificent coach who taught me to take a stand for the AND. And now, when I discover another facet of myself, I usually smile from ear to ear — if I don’t completely burst out loud laughing in full gratitude that I get experience even more.
Love abounds. Abundance is everywhere. And the only time something doesn’t work out is because it’s not in alignment with my greatest good to begin with.
It is through entrepreneurship that I continually experience the greatest personal and spiritual development.
It is through entrepreneurship that I take a gigantic leap of faith on a regular basis.
It is through entrepreneurship that I test my limits to expand into the woman I always knew myself to be.
So what about those international business trips? I got to do them in my own business. And I also choose who I will be spending my time with on those trips.
So how does it get any better than that?
Through mentorship and profound study of spirituality and wealth consciousness, I finally understand that wealth, wellbeing and wisdom from within are deeply related. You cannot separate them. I also have come to see from my own life journey that you are here to master your life, if you choose to, and that means in every area of your life. Some areas of my life come very easily to me. And yet other people struggle with those very same areas.
It’s whatever the journey is for you.
I am here to fully integrate spirituality with visionary work and with luxury living.
I embrace the path.
It is true to me.
It is thrilling.
It is an adventure.
A glorious experience.
Full blown aliveness!
This, I believe, is my spiritual journey!
What about you? What facets of your life do you deeply desire to integrate? Do some of these feel like opposing forces? What if you knew that it is your life’s journey to bring them together, quite simply because they are you, and they make you so incredibly unique?
Please leave your comments below. I want to hear what you are embracing in your life’s journey. The best part of the conversation occurs right here right now!
