It was about 4 years ago that my life seemed to bottom out.
I was let go of my job unexpectedly, my grandmother passed away and I had a 5 pound tumor removed from my uterus.
I was rebuilding my life after leaving an abusive relationship, only to have the rug pulled out from under me. I was in the ultimate survivor mode.
I went to the doctor and found out that my fibroid had grown to 5 pounds and needed to be removed. At the time, I was still grieving my grandmother’s death. Additionally, I was worried sick about how I would provide for myself.
I was out of commission for a total of 6 weeks.
That time gave me the space to seriously reflect and get into my spiritual gifts as an Empath.
I cried like I had never cried in my life.
It took me a year to crawl out of hell but this experience started my journey towards being in full alignment with gifts.
At the time, I would have never taken 6 weeks off for myself. But clearly God had another plan for me.
The spiritual implications for fibroid tumors is repressed creativity.
It just so happened that I had put my poetry on the shelf and was not actively engaging in anything creative. (So pay attention to what life is saying to you!)
Recognize: where you are feeling joy or discontent. Honor your own need for pleasure and joy. What is currently bringing you joy and happiness?
Connection: Getting rooted in a spiritual practice and community. It is so important to be in community with others who understand you.
Surrender: There is a time and place for everything, and if you feel like you are pushing to make something happen, stop, breathe, and reflect. Ask: “What is my next right step?”
Building a business is hard work and it may feel counterintuitive to take a break or pursue creativity, however as an empathic feminine business owner, it is a necessity to have something outside of work to nourish you.
The right coach or mentor can quite literally save your life and help you to navigate through the minutiae of life and business.
