Much harm is spread by "teachers" who force their path onto others rather than allowing them to discern their own way. It is unthinkable that one would take advantage of people's most pure and vulnerable soft spots around matters of the soul.
I believe that the manner in which one follows their North Star should be owned and followed by that person's soul, not dogma outlined by someone else.
Strict guidelines of "how" to do something only reinforce the disempowerment of that soul rather than softly placing a hand on another's back to let them know they can do no wrong as long as they stay true to their "why" and keep moving forward. I do not trust anyone who promises they can "do the work" for someone else.
It took me a very long time to unpeel "the how of the ways" of others who criticized me for not doing it "right," and even longer to reveal I had a soul intelligence of my own. I felt like I was breaking the rules established by others that never quite felt right for me until I found a way that resonated a true tone.
I worry sometimes that the focus of my business and its suggestions will be taken as a construct rather than what I intend it to be....a framework of information presented in a way that's not commonly shared so that my clients will be able to discern their own meaning from it. I rely on their internal landscape as a means to answers that only they can determine and own.
If you ever feel constrained by someone's teachings, despite the promises of a guaranteed result, remember to check that point against your own heart and follow it only if it rings true like a tuning fork. You'll know when someone is genuinely trying to help you versus bullshitting you only for their benefit.
Stay true to your why and I'll do the same...and I'll see ya on the other side.
