Things are interesting in my neck of the woods. Or should I say, throat. I’ve lost my voice. Literally. I know, it’s hilarious, I speak for a living. I am also the master of ceremony at my dear friends’ wedding this coming weekend. So, there is that.
I announced this on Instagram and received an influx of loving support and also ridiculous suggestions. I’ll keep this all PG though, I am sure you can imagine some of the advice one receives on the interwebs. The throat can be somatically linked to expression and recently I have been in contemplation; sitting back considering very carefully and intentionally where it is I want my energy to flow with ease, joy and abundance within my business. I feel very full and want to map out my next steps with ease and sometimes for me, this means pressing pause on projects so I can listen. I have not felt the pull to express/write/create anything new or action current projects as I sit in this pause. I can feel my head fight this pause and creative silence and struggle to accept it. It’s entertaining (sometimes frustrating AF) as I experience and observe the battle simultaneously.
So, what to do with lemons? A human experiment of course.
I want to invite you to join me for a challenge over the next few days and I am also going to run a competition with some rad prizes for those of you who join – because why not.
Winner gets a 30-minute session with me where they can use all my psychotherapy experience to ask me whatever they like as well as a signed copy of my book and a $50 Lululemon gift voucher. For reals. Obviously, this will be in the near future once my vocal chords are nourished and want to play nice once again.
Im inviting you to not speak in an effort to reveal to yourself some of the deepest understandings of life you’d not be able to discover without such intentional verbal silence.
Okay, you probably could do it another way, but let’s give this a crack.
We are going to have an #InnerRetreat together.
How to enter the competition:
1. Head to facebook and comment on this post, “I’m in”.
2. Email us firstname.lastname@example.org at the end of your number of chosen days and tell me within 500 words what you learnt. I want to listen to your mind and soul. There are no boundaries around this. Obviously, if you tell me you are planning on doing some hitman/woman work I will be forced to call the police. So maybe this is the moment to get clear. As long as no one gets hurts, there are no boundaries to what you share with me. I will be posting my learning early next week too. I’m with you on the revelation front, don’t worry.
Some clear steps for you to follow for the challenge:
Okay, that’s it, folks.
Head to the Facebook post now and comment, “I’m in” and email me when your days of silence are up. I will email and message the winner by 12PM next Tuesday 🙂
