When was the last time you were invited (OK maybe thrust!) out of your comfort zone?
This theme has come up multiple times in my coaching sessions and with friends this past month. One common characteristic for each person; there is certainty it is a YES to move forward and step into the excitement, trepidation, and uncertainty of what is being requested.
In some cases, it is to move out of a circumstance that you have outgrown. You simply can no longer stay at that job, in that limiting mindset or in that friendship in the old way. This certainty reminds me of the poem by Anais Nin:
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
Other times it is a calling to step more fully into your authentic empowered self. It may be a health issue demanding attention, a request to step up your impact and visibly professionally (my big out-of-my-comfort-zone request last month!), a call to support another during a transition, or to lead a new project whose time has come to manifest. YOU have a tap on the shoulder to take your seat at the table utilizing your full array of gifts, talents, and passion.
Recently I have been invited to contribute offerings to the Conscious Awakening Network. It feels totally in my realm of truth and simultaneously out of the box for most people I know. It is stretching me beyond my ‘public’ comfort zone! From their website:
“The Conscious Awakening Network (CAN) is a progressive media platform that provides inspirational programs on humanity’s evolutionary path. We offer 100’s of hours of videos to help expand your awareness, evolve your consciousness, and transform your body/mind/spirit. Our “out-of-the-box” interviews and educational programming includes topics such as ancient origins angelics, walk-ins, hybrids, starseed, extraterrestrials, ascension, deep space, contact, spiritual awakenings, channeling, health & energy healing, light language, the paranormal and more. Our forward-thinking videos help to normalize conservations around topics traditionally considered taboo.’
I have two videos up on the CAN website which has an amazing global community. It feels like a HUGE stretch to be featured alongside Lynne McTaggart, Joe Dispenza, Deepak Chopra, Gregg Braden, and Sheila Seppi!
In addition, I will join many of the contributors at a conference in April in San Diego called Portal To Ascension. I am not sure what to expect, but I know it is a YES!
There was another invitation to become an ambassador with the Galactic Alliance Organization:
We are a multidimensional conscious evolution movement for anyone seeking universal knowledge, spiritual growth, education, and community. Amazing contributors here as well!
For the past four years, I have been meeting monthly with a group of 8 people who intentionally live out of the box. We each challenge the status quo. We discuss structures that we know are not optimal and do not support flourishing for all beings. It has been uplifting to be seen, heard and validated. We are each co-creating new mindsets, paradigms and systems that enhance the likelihood that everyone counts and is invited to thrive. What a gift this group of amazing people has been. We are real, emotional, funny, and honest. They amplify my courage to continue to step into my discomfort as I stretch beyond my comfort zone.
How are you being invited to step out of your comfort zone? Who is supporting you?
Now is the time, we are the ones we have been waiting for!
