Being a leader means recognizing that everything you do has an impact on the people around you. Conscious leader have high self-awareness and are in tune with feelings, thoughts, and actions. There is alignment between words and actions. Are you guided to serve with compassion, and care about the impact you create by truly engaging and driving your life’s mission? Are you leading from your heart in harmony (actions) with your mind (words)?
Being ready is unique to each of us, as it depends on becoming more in touch with ourselves, the opportunities that surround us, and the invisible bars that are jailing us in a mental prison. When we’re ready, we’ll realize we’re enough. We’ll realize how powerful we are within ourselves. There will be no need to dominate others or nature, and we can slowly find ways to take steps forward at our own pace, with a healthy dose of self-forgiveness and self-awareness. There’s no reason to drag our hurt and pain along with us when we can also examine and heal it.
If there is any aspect of your life that has been limping along, this is an opportunity to examine the root cause of why it has gone off the rails. Maybe your foundation itself is starting to crack like the roots of a tree that breakthrough the sidewalk wanting to breath fresh air? It could be that you have nothing to “fix” or “make better” but a growing awareness that it’s time to let go.
Have we simply been hypnotized to believe that the way to get love and meaning in our life is through our success, physical beauty and how we appear? As a child, did we learn that chasing perfection was the goal? How could anyone expect parents who carry their own wounds and trauma — and who were taught to pursue superficial success at all costs — guide children to a healthy life? When can we stop pursuing approval or love through perfect looks or perfect behavior, and let real and raw, authentic beauty shine through? Is it when we get in touch with our tenderness and our pain that we can let go of the illusion of perfection?
We’re all wounded. No one is spared. We haven’t had the opportunity to talk openly about it in a divided world where we often get shut down. But for some of us, this is no longer an option. We are doing our own work at our own pace.
Being a leader means recognizing that everything you do has an impact on the people around you.

The idea of unlearning is not new. It is at least four thousand years old and is rooted in sacred texts. There are many amazing stories in our collective history about inspirational people who were self-taught and became pioneers, changing the course for humanity. It is encouraging to know more people today are looking to step out of the rat race. More and more are questioning the fast-food culture we’ve created, wanting to support different lifestyles that align with abundance and nutrition that is created from the heart—not from great profit margins.
The time has come for clearing out toxic beliefs and states of mind so you can plant seeds for the healthy way of life.
When you know, in your heart, why you’re here and how you want to live an authentic and vulnerable life, you will experiment and create the space for it and begin to move in that direction. You were born for this very time in history!
There is a path toward the healthier world that we have envisioned and experienced in our imagination but the bridges will not build themselves.
