Since last week, each Tuesday morning I have an online video chat with two Goddess Sisters: Sarah and Lee. Sarah is a naturopathic doctor in Maine and Lee is a Somatic Movement educator in Philadelphia. We found each other through another online tribe for business women who are looking to take their businesses to a new level. It’s interesting how people find each other when and for what they exactly need, eh?
Each week, we talk about our plans to grow our personal businesses, we encourage each other, and we come up with some wild-donkey-riding ideas! We are checks-and-balances and outrageous support for each other. We keep each other on target with what we each want and to hold each other accountable to avoid that pesky nuisance … procrastination! After each video chat, I’m so pumped up with my Manifested Harmony ideas that I can’t scribble the ideas down fast enough!
I’m writing about this today because our little group really impressed upon me the power of being connected to like-minded people who will support you in your dreams and visions. No matter who you are or where you live, we are all surrounded by nay-sayers who are so afraid of their own shadow that I’m amazed that they can make it out of bed each day. We are also surrounded by negative media messages. Every minute of the day is oozing the negative crud from these people and images that it is no wonder to me that our society is so broken and suffering. So creating an uplifting and positive tribe of support is essential if you want to create something that is true to your heart.
An empowering idea that came to me through our group chat is that I’m going to create a video to share with everyone who is engulfed by fear and worry, people who are unemployed, suffering, and have lost hope in a bright future. And no I’m not running for politic office … but I am going to share how we are all responsible for our lives and, therefore, we can turn things around! As Sarah and Lee pointed out to me today … just do it … it doesn’t have to be perfect … just be me, create the video and share the message. So with the support and advice of my little tribe, that is what I will be working on over the next week. It may not be a perfect video production, my hair may be the messy curly thing that I have going on lately, and one of my cats may jump in the video. But I feel so strongly that you and everyone else need to see it. So stay tuned as I post this video so that you can invite a whole lot more sunshine, tulips, daisies and kittens to your world!
Happy Election Day (and let’s make it a positive day)!
Join in on the fun!
