This grief is your moment of reinvention

You need partners and friends whose conversations leave you feeling uplifted and inspired to do something bigger and make a difference.

Your vision of a better world is your gift. Don’t dismiss it or waste time criticizing the way things are now. Tap into your enormous pool of inspiration and find a way to use your vision as the foundation for your work. That mission is the one you came to share.

Your salvation lies in seeing the big picture, following your inspiration, opening your heart and not getting lost in details, drudgery, or routine.

Your highest work requires stepping out of the confines of convention – into alternative worlds of knowledge, spirituality, intuition, and healing. It’s time to embrace your spirituality and use it as your gift to uplift and inspire others.

By spirituality, I don’t mean just reading a book or two, I mean daily connection to the divine through meditation and intense spiritual practice. It’s time to embrace your highest self profoundly enough to build your great work around it.

Let this pain fuel you to move forward and succeed at something that inspires and changes our world. It’s time to quit trying to fit in and be someone you’re not. You’ve hidden your true gifts in order to be loved. But the world will embrace you for who you truly are when you share your story through your great work.

To recover you need to do your work, the work you signed up for that will enlighten the world. Nothing will ease your pain as much as inspiration and accomplishment. Daily spiritual practice, such as meditation, will help you heal, overcome your doubt, and move forward boldly.
