When Your Future Calls To You
By Kathryn Yarborough
Does your future call to you?
Do you imagine a future you who is truly fulfilling your purpose… a future you who’s doing what you’re here to do full out, without constraint? Maybe she has a thriving business. Maybe she speaks several times a month and is a sought-after speaker. Maybe she is a best-selling author. Maybe she’s doing something that I can’t even imagine because she’s YOUR future on purpose self and unique to you.
Everyone has a future on purpose self.
This is the future you who is fulfilling your purpose. When you tune into her, you sense that she has the life you long for. If you look closer, you can feel a path between where you are now and where she is. I call this path your purpose path.
Your purpose is an expression of the Divine. When you’re on your purpose path, it feels like you’re on a moving sidewalk because energy from the Great One flows to you and through you – moving you forward – guiding you, nudging you, pushing you, pulling you.
My future on purpose self calls to me. Does yours? Mine is fulfilling my purpose. She’s doing what I’m here to do – full out, without constraint. I want to be her.
I see her doing events with lots of people in the room. She’s making a difference. The participants at her events get inspired to grow their on purpose businesses. They learn tools to design a business they love, manifest clients, and enjoy the journey. In between the events, my future on purpose self provides additional programs and classes where her clients get the training, feedback, and community support they need to keep moving forward with growing their on purpose businesses.
My future, on purpose self has called to me for years. YEARS.
When the vision of my future on purpose self first came to me, I pushed her aside. She, or this Great One we’re all a part of, showed me a vision where I am speaking to large groups – with hundreds of people in the room. I said to myself, I’m not that good of a speaker; I can’t speak in front of hundreds of people. I pushed the vision aside.
But the vision kept nagging me. It would randomly pop up in my mind. When I was driving, working on my business, or relaxing by the pool.
Eventually, I got some speaker training. I joined Toastmasters and began my journey of learning how to be a better presenter. I improved my speaking skills. I took what I learned and went out into the world to find speaking opportunities.
But it was hard for me to find them. I only found a few places where I could speak to small rooms. Most of the people in the rooms were not my ideal clients. To add salt to the wound, when I was invited to speak to a room with more people, I was asked to pay for the opportunity.
I got discouraged. I felt hopeless. I pushed my future, on purpose self away again. Or I tried to.
Then I had an idea… maybe I could do my own events. I had done workshops earlier in my life. I knew I could. I created and promoted a workshop that I thought I could fill with forty or fifty people… maybe even a hundred. But it didn’t fill - only four people attended my first event.
Before the event I felt anxious. After it, I felt disappointed. I thought, I don’t want to do this. This is not fun. This is not the vision of my future on purpose self.
I felt discouraged. Again.
But, kind of like a Whac-A-Mole, another idea for a different kind of event popped into my head. I created it and promoted it, and ten people showed up. I had fun, and it went well. I thought I’d do it every 6 weeks in different locations across central Florida (where I live) and grow my event business. I figured that if I did this, I’d become my future on purpose self. That was January 2020.
After doing two of these events, Covid struck, and it was no longer possible to do in person events. No one was doing events. As you know, we all went into lockdown and social distancing.
Though my future on purpose self still called to me, I thought that to become her, I had to do in person, live events. When I speak in person, I experience a wonderful feeling of energy going back and forth between me and the people in the room. I thought I had to be in person to experience this.
I pivoted and created the Moving Sidewalk Movement – an online community where for the past eighteen months, I’ve provided classes related to growing an on purpose business and manifesting clients. I also did a few events online. Things were going okay, but not great.
A few months ago, my mood plummeted. I felt depressed and unmotivated. That day I was on a Zoom call with a colleague – a mastermind partner. I told her that things weren’t working the way I wanted them to. I wasn’t getting the results I wanted with my marketing efforts. I felt discouraged.
The words that kept coming out of my mouth were “GET ON YOUR MOVING SIDEWALK.” In fact, it was a bit stronger than that, and I even said, “Get on your FUCKING moving sidewalk,” multiple times.
Finally, my rather astute friend pointed out that it sounded like I was angry. She asked me who I was angry at. I realized that if I was angry at anybody, it was myself. I needed to get on my moving sidewalk and become my future on purpose self, which meant that I needed to do events and grow events. I needed to commit to events being part of my business.
So I told her I need to do an event that would work online or in person. Something that could have four people, forty people, or even four hundred people and would work no matter how many people were in the room. It would need to be an event I would love facilitating and one that I would love attending if I was a participant.
Within a week, I crafted a new event. For now, I’m doing it online, on Zoom. It’s called GET ON YOUR MOVING SIDEWALK. I’ve done it twice since I first created it, and it’s a good event. I’ve gotten great feedback from it. I’m doing it again this month – November 2021. We’ll see what happens.
I’ve also decided to do several events online in 2022. I’ve discovered that I can feel the exchange of energy that I love when I’m doing events online. It’s not as cool as in person, but it still happens. If I want to become my future on purpose self and be on my moving sidewalk, I need to do events. So I’m doing them!
What do you need to do to become your future on purpose self?

What's Your Breaking Point?
by Andrea Hylen
By Andrea Hylen
During a global pandemic and a crescendo of protesting in support of Black Lives Matter, Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Bruce Perry's, What Happened To You? Conversations on Trauma, Resilience and Healing is one book, released in 2020, that opened a bigger conversation about trauma and its effects on our mental health.
Simone Biles, a superstar American gymnast, pulled out of Olympic events this summer because of mental health challenges. She said, "I have to do what's right for me and focus on my mental health and not jeopardize my health and my well-being."
Naomi Osaka, a Japanese champion tennis player, pulled out of competition to focus on her mental health and happiness. And it's not just women. Male athletes have been sharing their personal struggles with panic attacks, ADHD, performance anxiety, and other mental health conditions.
Between the pandemic and famous people becoming more transparent, it is showing the contrast between support for people who have a physical health challenge and a mental health challenge. There is still shame around needing mental health support that is not present for a physical illness. What is needed for both physical and mental challenges is support, empathy, and compassion.
In the book, You Can Heal Your Life, author Louise Hay said: "If we are willing to do the mental work, almost anything can be healed." She was talking about the power of our mind, our mental capacity to heal physical illness and that our thoughts and feelings are a mind-body connection.
I have had many highs and lows in my life experiences. A few times, the lows kept coming and really put stress on my mental health. Even when friends and family knew the 'reasons for the lows, there was a pressure to bounce back quickly. To put on a happy face. I had a friend ask me once, 'when was I going to return to being the person I used to be' after my husband died and my daughter and I moved to California. My response to her was, "Never." As I grieved and assessed my life, I also assessed relationships. Sometimes a breaking point has also been a wake-up call to change.
One of my mental health breaking points came after eight years of loss and change. The end of a marriage and divorce. The loss of a job by a layoff. Remarrying and the death of our son at 19 months. Giving birth to a daughter two weeks after our son died. Then, when the first anniversary of his death arrived, I went through another cycle of grief with tears and body aches. Physical symptoms of muscle weakness and fatigue came in the form of an autoimmune condition. I had reached a mental breaking point, and it had manifested as physical illness. It was a 3-year healing journey with traditional and alternative medicine. I needed to heal and strengthen my mental health first. The final step in healing the muscle inflammation was a homeopathic remedy for grief. It was right there all along. All the loss was too much for my body-mind-spirit.
When I talk about a breaking point, I mean that you can't keep up with all the adversity and change in your life. You feel hopeless. You reach a point where something happens that pushes you over the edge because you can't take it anymore with all the other pressure and stress in your life. You can't just bounce back. You've used so much grit, you don't have anything left.
A breaking point may be learning something about your family that upends your world or a loss that pulls away your safety net. It might be someone teasing and bullying you, and no one stands up for you at work. Or ongoing stress like a child with a chronic illness or condition, an unhealthy, codependent relationship with a family member, a global pandemic that turns the world upside down.
Life happens, and sometimes it is just too much to handle it all.
Here are some tips to support strengthening your mental health muscles. Set them up now so that you have the support in place when life hits you with a challenge.
Mental Health Support Tips:
1. Create a toolbox of resources: EFT-Tapping, meditation, positive intelligence practices, walking in nature, somatic practices, Kundalini yoga, chanting, talking to a trusted friend. Practice using the resources when you feel good, so you have a habit to draw on in the future.
2. Pursue healthy habits: knitting, sculpting, cooking, gardening. Research shows they boost mental well-being.
3. Create a support system: a mental health professional, coach, support group, trusted friends. The key is to connect in environments where people have compassion, empathy and validate what you are feeling.
4. Spiritual support: A religious or spiritual community, music, inspirational people on social media and in books and YouTube videos.
Let's normalize the need for mental health support by listening to each other with compassion and letting go of judging it as a weakness.
If you feel hopeless and want to die, tell someone how you are feeling. A trusted friend or family member, a mental health professional, or the suicide hotline in your area. Call 911 and ask them for the suicide hotline. Decide today that no matter what, you will tell someone that you are feeling suicidal.
Life happens, and sometimes it is just too much to handle it all.

In August, Mark and I took an 8-day vacation in Mexico. It was the first time we had gone on vacation where we 1) weren't visiting family, 2) weren't combining business travel with a semi-vacation, or 3) didn't try to fit in work among vacation activities.
We completely unplugged.
At first, we had some trepidation about this trip. We were going to a resort in Mexico on the Riviera Maya, and we think of ourselves as mountain and hiking folks, not beach people. Because of that, we were worried we would get bored. During other vacations, we usually had a project(s) in queue, either because it was a combo business/vacation or because we were visiting Mark's hometown in Alaska, where there's plenty of projects to do.
We planned ahead. We brought the laptop and some work projects we could do if we got tired of the beach, pool, and swim-up bar.
We packed for the trip, got to the airport, and felt relieved that we had a plan in case we were insanely bored.
Keep in mind that this vacation came right after ten months of uncertainty of our living situation, a whiplash-inducing journey to find a house and move before we had to be out of our house end of July, and the subsequent packing and moving. Oh, and all this after I broke my foot back in March.
So, did we sleep for 8 days? Did we hole up in our room working on our projects while our friends played in the pool? Did we mope out of boredom?
Instead, we reveled in actually relaxing, something I don't think either one of us has done since 1982. (I'm joking... mostly.) We bonded with our trip buddies, cementing relationships that will last for years to come. We experienced the joy of just being in a pool for hours, talking with people from all over the world, and having fun.
More importantly, Mark and I rediscovered the joy of spending time with each other, which is sort of amusing because we have our tea and coffee rituals every morning, we work together from our home, and we usually end our day with our snackies-and-cocktails ritual. So, we spend a LOT of time together.
But this time together on vacation in Mexico was different. When we talked to each other, it was rarely about work, or the house situation, or our stresses. It was getting to know each other again.
I’m sharing this because it's important to take the time to disconnect from work and potentially the world. Only then can you really recharge.... and, even better, get to know yourself and perhaps the people you're with.
On a side note, I'm in a coaching program called Run Like Clockwork, founded by Adrienne Rich and Mike Michalowicz, author of Clockwork. This program focuses on the ability of the CEO, owner, president, and eventually everyone in an organization to take a four-week vacation, completely unplugged, with the result that the organization is still standing - and running WELL - after the person gets back from that four-week vacation.
I took that mission to heart, and I was not available for clients or client work. I didn't return work emails or phone calls. I had a vacation autoresponder set up to inform people who did reach out that I was away and would attend to their email when I returned. We prepared our clients in whatever ways we needed so that things didn't fall through the cracks or balls get dropped.
What can you take away from my experience?
1. Understand that your being plugged into work all the time does not serve you, your organization, or your customers/clients.
2. Plan a vacation now, even if it's just a few days, where you can "practice" being completely unavailable.
3. Figure out what you need to do in order to unplug: set up an email autoresponder, add a vacation message to your voice mail greeting, cross-train someone else to take over things in your absence, have a "what-if" plan.
4. Be very clear that if an emergency arises and someone must reach out to you, what "emergency" means.(That's where the "what-if" plan in #3 can come in handy.) The printer not printing is not an emergency, nor is the Internet connection failing.
...take the time to disconnect from work...

Sit, Seating, Seated
by Yemaja Jubilee
Sit your butt Down
Sit where Movement becomes Stillness
Sitting where Sounds becomes Silence
Seated, becoming One with Thee
I sit for me with me celebrating calmness and inner serenity.
Sit your Butt Down
Sit where I allow
Seated, so I notice
Sitting I now know my self more deeply
Seated in Thee, I flow adhering to the wisdom you bestowed upon me.
Sit your Butt Down
Sitting to align
Seated, I observe the thoughts that go flowing by in the synchronized synergies of my brain, like billowing soft white clouds in a clear blue sky.
Sit your Butt Down
Sit to listen.
Sitting to create a sweet inner space
Be in the presence showered by power of God’s amazing Grace
Seated my child you have no desire to participate in drama, emotionally unavailable humans, and those that say you are the “Devil” cause you wear dangling golden earrings shaped like an ankh , bold red nail polish, that brightly colored red hair and lips sizzling red like a hot flame.
Sit your Butt Down
Sit to be Twix, Twan, and Tween
Sitting you get to breathe inhale, exhale with the rise and fall of your chest.
Seated, in that tween connection graciously grounds me in the nowness of the moment.
I dwell in the LIGHT, that overshadows and kisses all the Darkness away. My soul is Happy and all is well.
Sit your butt Down
Sit, Sitting and Seated I choose to honor those things that make me unquestionably uniquely undeniably Me!!
Sit to embody your sensuality.
Sitting outpouring vibrations of sexuality.
Seated there is no neutrality, cause you claim your right to unapologetically embrace all of what the Divine created you to be, A sexual being filled with passion and spirituality.
And all is Well when You SYBD…
So sit your butt Down…Down…Down!

The Universe Owes Us a Living
by Rev. Dr. Nadene Rogers
I am a Baby Boomer who was raised believing that if you want it done right, you must do it yourself. That you only get paid for work done. That there are no free rides. That money doesn’t grow on trees. Of course, at the ripe age of 68, I have disproven any truth to these statements by choosing to align with the nature of the natural universe.
Many would argue that our world today shows up as lack and limitation in many forms, from food shortages to destructible climate change, the near distinction of many species, and the utter disregard for our natural resources. In reality, the life-death cycle of Creation is in divine right order, always leaning into the wholeness and unity of its nature.
In Truth, our demonstration of prosperity and abundance in life is a direct result of two things: the universal creative process, which reflects our deep-seated belief systems, and conscious awareness and application of the power of intention, faith, and follow-through.
The story of how my personal intention to open the flow of the universal law of abundance, illustrates how to align with a spiritually governed universe.
Fact: I have attracted through my work earnings, gifts, and bequests well over 5 million dollars in my life. I have been bankrupt once and in debt up to $100,000, and I have gotten back on my feet 3 times. Something in me believed that uncertainty and insecurity was my lot in life; either I didn’t deserve financial security, or I hadn’t the capacity to provide that for myself. This caused me to act irresponsibly around money, continuing the cycle of self-denial.
Truth: We are spiritual beings, living in a spiritual universe, governed by spiritual laws. Through the years of being a student of spiritual teachings, I discovered a vital understanding: we do not know what we cannot demonstrate. I decided that it was time for me to demonstrate in my financial affairs the harmony I felt in so many other areas of my life.
I was in debt once again to the tune of $80,000. I had a low credit score, had $100 000 equity in my home, no savings to draw from, was earning under $20,000 per year as an entrepreneur, and had just become eligible for old age security.
So I set an intention to keep a close watch on my behaviours around money (doing release work around feelings of guilt, judgement, and unworthiness), make the changes needed, and say YES to whatever the universe was giving me. To me this meant, declaring my blessings and asking for what I need (in the human world), and thinking and acting as if my desired outcomes had already been given while remaining open and receptive to what I could not have expected (in the spiritual world.) This became easier to do by constantly putting myself first, with a growing sense of regard and gentleness, before all others and all else.
For the past 3 years and during this pandemic, I have created steady work in the area of my passion, paid off all debt, increased my credit rating above 800, have a nice cushion in savings, and co-own a magnificently beautiful and serene beachfront property, mortgage-free!
Dr. Ernest Holmes, one of the great spiritual teachers of the 20th century, advised us to “turn entirely away from the condition.” In spiritual terms, this means that Infinite Creative Intelligence cannot know sickness or death. It can only know itself as us, in wholeness and vitality. Our part is to agree with that, align our awareness with that truth, and know it is the only reality. Changes come from that level of consciousness. Our attention goes to that realm of spiritual reality where there is NO DIS-EASE no matter the circumstances we feel challenged by. We deny its ability to recreate itself in the physical since it has no reality in the spiritual. This is not easy to grasp, but it is the most amazing experience when we get it.
I once had a person in our teaching tell me I was in “spiritual bypass” when I said abundance is everywhere no matter what the outer events look like. He thought it was wise somehow to acknowledge all the horrible evidence to the contrary. This is the learning curve. We must acknowledge and not deny the facts as they occur in our perspective, and at the same time, not give them any power over us. Or perhaps better phrased, not allow what is to limit the infinite universal intelligence operating in and through us in determining what can be.
So the next time you find yourself fighting the system, resisting upper management, frustrated or exhausted trying to find an open window in the face of a closed door, remember what is yours to do as a spiritual being, living in a spiritual universe, governed by spiritual laws.
We do not know what we cannot demonstrate.

Loneliness during COVID-19 has become an unexpected challenge for many, including some of my clients, friends, and family. I've also experienced it myself. There is a difference between COVID-19 loneliness and simple aloneness.
Now that things have opened up some and people can get out and socialize, the loneliness factor seems a bit different. But are we back to "normal" yet? Does it still feel different? Are there still lonely times?
What is this about? Why has this been different?
Some say it is the unknown. The "when will things get back to normal" instability. Some say it's about how different people are handling the experience. Some feel left out if they are feeling more cautious. Some feel they haven't reached out enough and so are alone more than they want to be.
Feeling lonely is hard because sometimes it feels like nothing really helps. Talking to a friend may help in the moment but doesn't always do the trick. Taking a walk outside shifts the mood if the walker actually takes it in. Working on a forward-moving project, like decluttering, shifts people into an active state. This is super helpful because it's doing rather than moping.
But it seems that during COVID-19, there is a sense of separation pushing the feeling of loneliness. Groups that used to get together may do so infrequently on Zoom; get-togethers get canceled due to weather; people find it simpler to stay in. It is the lack of actual sustainable or spur-of-the-moment contact that seems to be difficult.
Here are a few tips that may help you or someone you know feel more connected.
Of course, respect for how people are managing their safety during COVID-19 is a top priority, but communication is the key.
Communication is the Key
1. Don't assume what someone's COVID-19 contact rules are and rule them out of an invitation. Check it out. Their rules may have changed, or they may have found a way that helps them feel safe and is mutually respectful of you and your other guests.
2. Don't stick to inviting only couples or singles. Mix it up. Your single friend may appreciate an invite.
3. Don't assume that all your friends or relations are doing fine because you haven't heard from them. Reach out. Find out what they are up to. Maybe they have discovered some fun COVID-19 safe activity or could use a conversation pick-me-up.
4. Send flowers, ecards, or voice memos that show you are thinking about someone you haven't reached out to in a while.
5. Invite someone out on a hike or paddle or take the whole family. Shared memory-making experiences feed our connective tissue.
6. If you are feeling isolated, peruse safe volunteer activities or community action groups.
Giving of ourselves is the most enriching way to feel we are part of a greater whole. And you never know- you might just change someone's life.

Elsie Zarin Goll painted and resided in New York City and Northport, Long Island. She worked in oil, etching and monoprint beginning in 1948. Her paintings documented her life: portraits of family, friends and notables, flowers, landscapes and images reflecting her environment and the mood and culture of her time. She studied painting and had deep friendships with many notable artists of the mid-20th century. She also studied at The National Academy of Design and Columbia University. She received various awards and prizes including the John Carl Georgi Memorial Prize awarded by the National Association of Women Artists. She was married to Abram Emanuel Goll for 68 years, a loving husband and friend who championed her work as both an artist and a hospital administrator. Her forward thinking and courageous life set an important example for her two children and for all who knew her.
Elsie Zarin Goll was my Mother. I grew up in a world of texture, visual vitality, and the smell of oil paint. Through my mother I experienced multiple methods of how one walks in the world blending the creative and the practical in order to create a rich tapestry of experience expressed through creative and structured forms. Politics, culture, social activism, ordinary life, and nature were articulated on canvas and through discussion. I add the additional voice of spirituality. My work as an artist in conjunction with my work as an art therapist, healer, spiritual teacher, and transformative coach are two sides of the same coin.

Acts of Celebration… and more
By Lulu Trevena
Celebrations bring joy and togetherness.
I am writing this in October 2021, as we journey through a month of celebration with the On Purpose Woman Global Community's 21st Year Anniversary and our kind leader Ginny Robertson's 70th birthday. These are major achievements and worthy of our very best cheerleading.
How can we enhance more Hoopla in our day?
Hoopla… just saying that word feels playful. The dictionary defines it as excited commotion.
What acts of celebration can we invite in on a regular basis?
Each of us celebrates the day of our birth each year and those of our loved ones and friends. It has a traditional feeling to it. Then we might have an anniversary, religious event, or something of significance annually that we add merriment to. We gather to bring joy to each other, I believe; it is love in action.
I have always gathered people together in celebration. I would hold a lunchtime disco in elementary school for music, dancing, and fun. As an adult, I have celebrated calendared holidays and 'just because' holidays, Blessingways, Harvest Festivals, and Book Launches.
I like the idea of celebrating life in its rich tapestry and finding ways of increasing celebrating as a way of living. Living purposefully in a higher awareness of proclaiming joy, togetherness, recognition, and praise.
What micro celebrations and opportunities are seeking you to bring more Hoopla to them?
I know each morning when I wake, I celebrate my breath and the new day. As many may not have woken this morning. This in itself is a blessing… can I get a hoopla?
Many of us are on a personal, professional, and spiritual growth path. We signed up for this life class, perhaps in the celestial realms; we perhaps even have the T-Shirt to prove it!
The truth is:
Life is both messy and miraculous.
Mundane and magnificent.
Multi-faceted, multi-layered, multi-complex, and a place where miracles happen.
We can find ourselves on the mouse wheel more times than at the top of the mountain. This is part of many of our journeys, bringing a higher viewpoint to take us out of our set-point way of being. Changing patterns and behaviors. Reaching more summits.
Every moment is new, pristine, and precious… can I get a hoopla?
For those of us on this dynamic, never dull, growth path, our awareness is like our guardian angel. Listen, she may just be whispering: this new moment has never happened, how wonderful. What will you choose?
When we shift our perception and drop the baggage and strict rules that we have donned, we give ourselves an inner sense of celebration. Healing and changing lifelong patterns are huge celebrations. Celebrations of You.
The other day, someone spoke rudely and belittled me. Instead of reacting like I might have in the past, I paused, took a 5-second heart, mind, and soul check, and said to myself, not mine, theirs. How they reacted to me, I left with them, and went about my day. Hoopla!
Please honor yourself when you notice these shifts because they are huge… life-transforming. There may not be fanfare, but you can create that for yourself if you want.
At times I was a serious child and teenager. Motherhood allowed me to play again, you know, disguised as if it was for the children. But hey, I had fun! As I age, I give myself more permission to be silly, zany, lighthearted, and on the keen lookout for joy and wonder.
We work hard at this grown-up life with much more seriousness than is healthy or necessary. I feel the divine worthiness of joy, celebration, and merrymaking as a natural way of being. I practice daily. I claim this as a path worthy of taking.
Where can you find more HOOPLA in your day?
Every moment is new, pristine, and precious.

Angel & Devil on our Shoulders
Zach Vessels on Unsplash.
We each have an angel
and a devil on our shoulders
The conundrum is the angel
can sound like a bossy, authoritarian bitch
And the devil can sound
like a crooning, enticing friend… yet a troublemaker
We all have many inner “voices”
Yes. Every. One. Of. Us. Does.
that have been internalized
Our parents voice
An ocean of societal, authoritarian, governmental, marketing, voices
Advertisers, cartoon characters,
celebrities, even news anchors…
the list is extensive
It. Is. A. Vast. Ocean.
Of. Internalized. Voices.
Voices like static radio
Eager to use a blowhorn
Or side up next to you in an icky way
Unravel each of them
Befriend them all
Their main function is to keep you safe
There is no need to ignore them
They like to have an audience
Turn toward them
Kindly tell them you are the driver of your life,
and buckle them into the backseat.
Then deepen your relationship with
The. Still. Quiet. Voice.
Your Higher Self
Your Divine Self
Open to that Loving Voice.
There’s a big difference between our branding purpose and our deep leadership story. A brand is something that sells us. A good brand is a story tethered to the truth, deployed to build our worthy work. It’s a tool, and an important one. But our authentic lived story comes from the soul. And that’s where our leadership purpose lives.
We might not share that deep calling all the time, but we need to know it by heart, so we can share it with the people who keep us on the right path. Honoring and believing in that story grounds our lives in the richness of the soul’s calling to leadership. And our “tribe,” the people who walk with us in integrity, need to honor and believe in that calling as well, so we can all rise into our power together.
There are two layers to living this story well and fully. The top layer is our public persona, our performance of the branding version of our purpose. This layer is helpful for entrepreneurs, and when performed with integrity, can support a healthy business. But there’s a seduction in this layer, which is the temptation to perform a role perfectly, so that we start to live and work our purpose from the outside in.
If we get stuck in this layer, we lose track of the soul’s story because we shrink into economic and ego-driven leaders. Certainly, entrepreneurship-
with-integrity is a powerful tool for personal and social change. But sustainable leadership is a soul’s calling. Great innovators integrate both layers. Great leaders align with their soul’s purpose and are willing to be stretched, surprised, and strong.
Our roles will change as we grow our stories, but as part of our lived purpose, the soul’s story expands our choices with authenticity and clarity. Setbacks and victories, discoveries and accidents all contribute to wisdom, and wisdom is all about change. Claiming the soul’s story makes change meaningful, connected with a resilient purpose that will carry you through all the leadership opportunities you are called to create.
When we’re grounded in the soul, we can be ambitious in the world with passion and compassion. A “special” message the Western world still sends to us women is that we should stay small and prioritize the callings of others above our own. This is just a story that keeps us from leading from our core purpose. Because our deepest callings need to be loud and proud in order to be heard, staying small means the world stays small, too.
Answering the soul’s calling helps our communities thrive. But it helps us, too, by giving us the power of presence. Life gets more satisfying when we own our authentic leadership story. The soul’s story is true no matter where we are in life, no matter what failures or triumphs come our way. It’s the story we live naturally; the plot changes, but somehow, the theme stays the same because it’s grounded in our deepest leadership values.
Three questions you can ask to stay connected to your soul’s calling every day:
First, acknowledge your foundations:
What experiences made me a leader?
Then ground yourself in what matters to you:
What values spark my leadership practice?
Finally, move into connection with Spirit:
What does my soul ask me to share today?
Share your best; live your authentic purpose. Ground your daily choices in your soul’s calling.
Owning Your Leadership Purpose:
Move Beyond Your Brand

In my late 20's, I took my first yoga class at a church community center in Atlanta. A girlfriend and I were flight attendants who were always looking for the next adventure. As we bent and twisted our bodies, we laughed at the absurdity. But by the end of the class, after we lay stretched out fully relaxed, I felt like a million dollars. I didn't understand anything about Yoga, not the Sanskrit words, nor the physical positions called asanas. What I did know was I had never felt so at one, so at peace with myself. The purpose of Yoga (which means "yoke" or "union") is to bring the mind, body, and spirit into alignment. It did its job. I signed up for more classes. That was over 40 years ago.
Since that first encounter, I have taken many classes at home and while traveling across the country. I lived in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and now Petersburg, Virginia, and I always found a yoga community. I tried Vinyasa yoga, Iyengar yoga, Hot Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and Hatha Yoga. The result was always the same, a delicious feeling of calm and peace. Hatha yoga, however, became my staple. I found Yoga to be a valuable stress management tool. As the years passed, I was a wife, mother, and working woman. There was plenty of stress, worry, and anxiety in my life. One remedy was Yoga.
Through the years, there have been many things to stress over: relationships, finances, health, education, taxes, and the big one – childcare. Because I come from a long line of worrying women, it seemed normal to carry stress. Before understanding that my body had a rest dial, stress showed up in physical ways. My shoulders and upper back would tighten up. My forehead became tight and tense, and those eleven lines above my nose deepened. My breath became shallow. Beads of perspiration formed on my face and neck. There were bodily sensations, but I assure you the stress started in my mind.
We all experience stress. The interesting thing is we don't all stress about the same things. Nor do we stress in the same way. If I was told that I'd have to jump out of an airplane tomorrow, I'd freak out. Just how safe is this? What if I die? On the other hand, I know people who would be so excited, the morning couldn't come fast enough.
The problem with stress is, it can kill you. Prolonged stress can have damaging effects. Left unchecked, it can contribute to health problems like high blood pressure, headaches, diabetes, sleep issues, and gastrointestinal upset.
The practice of Yoga has brought about positive changes in my physical and mental health. I am a calmer person, less prone to get upset at life's little annoyances. The deep breathing, which accompanies the poses, is an important component of the practice. It is valuable for releasing tension and staying in the present moment. Much of our suffering results from focusing too much on the past or fixating on the future.
The broad path of Yoga led to more byways to explore. I began a meditation practice. The short meditations at the end of a yoga class were an invitation to learn more about this ancient practice of sitting in the silence. Meditation is a companion to Yoga. A body at ease can sit for meditation in a more relaxed way. Meditation carries me to a place of peaceful vibrations above the world's disturbances. It expands the way I feel and look at the world. I plan to write an article about the benefits of meditation, where I'll go into more detail.
I also wanted to understand the philosophy of Yoga. I noticed that the physical positions I practiced on the mat resulted in changes in my daily living. I became less judgmental, more compassionate, less critical, kinder. I even adopted a yogic perspective toward my faith. I saw the beauty in sacred texts, rituals, and traditions. I connected to nature in a way I had not before. I was more inclined to act in selfless ways, enjoying tasks without thought of personal gain.
Having experienced a variety of classes, I am selective about who I practice under and where I practice. Because it is MY practice, I have a say in my experience on the mat. I've had teachers who insisted my body conform to their ideal image of a pose, insisting I do headstands when I clearly was not strong enough. I have practiced in gyms with mirrors and studios with no mirrors (I prefer no mirrors). There have been teachers who did not consider the class's skill level and proceeded to do complicated poses that many students would not be capable of in a lifetime. Good teachers give options and make suggestions. Mostly, I have had kind and compassionate instructors who guide you and offer you this practice as a gift. Nora Vimala Pozzi, Director of the Integral Yoga Center of Richmond, became my mentor when I decided to become an instructor myself. She has fantastic energy and a lively way of teaching with depth and warmth. I was first drawn to her because she was a mature woman, someone who had, like me, experienced life.
I credit Dianne Bondy, a social justice activist, author, accessible yoga teacher, and the leader of the Yoga for All movement, with expanding my view of Yoga. Bondy believes that Yoga is not a practice for a privileged few: wealthy, thin, young, flexible, white, and able-bodied. But Yoga benefits all bodies, regardless of their shape, size, ethnicity, or ability.
Life can throw us curveballs, and this past year was proof of that. Thanks to my yoga practice, I feel I live with a clear mental focus and mindfulness. When my feelings and emotions fluctuate, I use the breathing techniques to bring balance back. I slow down more and smell the roses (to add a cliché). As an older yogi, I move gracefully through the world with upright posture and better flexibility. I live with an open and grateful heart.
One of the world's most respected yoga masters, Swami Satchidananda, said, "Yoga believes in transforming the individual before transforming the world. Whatever change we want to happen outside should happen inside. If you walk in peace and express that peace in your very life, others will see you and learn something."
Or put another way, he said, "Yoga is not only learning to stand on your head but also learning to stand on your feet."
My desire is that you take the journey to discovering your true Self. When we discover the light within, we can then shine it on others.
May you be safe. May you be happy. May you be at peace.
Namaste (The light in me sees and acknowledges the light in you.)
