I Don't Want to Be a Life Coach

Jun 12, 2017

Far before I ever wanted to become a “Life Coach” I just wanted to write and share myself and connect with people all over the world who were experiencing themselves as expanding beings giving birth to continuous ever evolving desires… and I did that for years, successfully not monetizing myself and going broke most of the time.

Fed up with my broke ass, I then decided I needed to grow up and “get real” serious about growing a business as a life coach, because somewhere I had decided that was the only way I could actually make a living helping people

What happened then, is that I monitored my voice and stifled my art.

I began secretly editing my sharing.
I started stealthily running everything I felt compelled to share through the filter of:
would this make me look like a someone who another someone would want to hire to help them with their life?
would this make me look like I have my act together, like I’m all wise and shit?

UGH. It makes me baby barf a little just typing it.

I didn’t even realize I was doing it until recently... well, until just today actually when I asked myself this question,

"If I needed no thing from no one, including approval or money, what would I feel compelled to share today?"

Honestly, this is scary as shit to admit not only to myself but to anyone who may happen to read this.

But here’s the real truth:

I don’t want to be “a coach”… I just want to be me. And if … WHEN… people show up and want to pay me money to be around me because it gives them permission to unapologetically be THEMSELVES too, then that’s the biggest of FUCK YEAH’s!

I don’t want to be someone who has it all figured out… I just want to be a human, who feels ALIVE when she shares herself with the world.

I don’t want to edit myself because I think it’s what I “need to be” in order to be successful… i just want to show up every day as unfettered and unfiltered as possible.

I know in my heart of hearts, that this is the only way I can help anyone anyways.

Besides, there’s already too many “coaches” in the world thinking they need to present themselves as already having everything figured the fuck out, in order to be worthy of having clients or selling their courses or whatever.... and honestly all it accomplishes is making us all feel like failures and judging ourselves.

This is the only thing I know for sure:
I speak my life, my reality, my world into existence.
We all do.

And I know that if you’re reading this right now, you are actively working on doing this on purpose.
I am too.

Nowhere in the history of helping people, does it say that you have to have it all figured out to have a massive impact on the lives of others.

And so today, this is what I’m choosing to speak into existence:
I have a massive impact on the world, by BEING ME and telling the truth of what that looks like every single day.
I am also wealthy as fuck - in all ways - and that has not a damn thing to do with what I say or don’t say. It only has to do with the fact that wealth is inherently mine, because I am a child of God. Period.

These two things have nothing to do with one another.
This is true for you too.

You need not filter yourself to help others or make money,
In fact I think that the more we’d be willing to show up all messy and human-y and honest about what we’re actively going through and learning, the more truth of wealth we'd experience and the more bondage we help create others out of.

Because let’s face this cold hard fact, telling anything other than the truth in every single moment is imprisonment in the highest degree

Today, I release my shackles and vow to show up here for me and for you in raw, honest, holy shit, vulnerable truth… because the world that I want to live in is a world where we feel safe to be HUMAN’s - slowly but surely remembering our divinity.

The truth shall set you FREE.
