Do you believe it’s possible to find an unshakable peace in business and life?
I’d love to share my journey to find ‘enlightenment’ to inspire you to bring greater peace, wisdom and joy to your business and life.
In 2006, I decided… with my inflated ego… that I wanted to become enlightened this lifetime… just a tiny goal. Ha!
I soon discovered, with this particular pursuit, that the goal itself stands in the way of the actual ‘attainment’. It’s like trying to focus on an orgasm… it moves further away… we simply need to surrender completely to the moment.
Yet full of drive and determination… I closed my counselling/coaching business in Melbourne, packed up my life and flew to… you guessed it… the cliche destination… INDIA.
I lived with and was an attendant of a female Buddhist Rinpoche. I did a month silent retreat alone in a cave in the Himalayas… meditating all day. Another cliche!
I discovered a powerful silence beneath the noise of life.
I then sat with masters like Gangaji, Mooji and Dolano and my ego was slapped further into the silence of our essence and the unshakable peace at our core.
After 2 years in India I returned to Oz and moved to Byron Bay for 6 years and then Bali for a year to simply relax and enjoy this magical life.
All striving disappeared.
I dropped the goal of enlightenment and just lived with simplicity and spaciousness.
My focus was on simply enjoying life.
There was ALOT of peace experienced in this time because I pretty much set up my life to avoid any stress and overwhelm.
BUT I had deep inner callings and dreams that were continually drawing me. Dreams that felt stressful to create but I knew it was what I needed to do.
So after 7 years of a pretty simple and quiet life…. my intuition said, “ok it’s now time to master peace amongst some real chaos by creating my big dreams”… it told me to boost my business, call in my soul mate, have babies and mortgage a home.
So I called these things in, followed the steps guided by my intuition and they came FAST!
Ahhh where did my ocean of peace go!?!
Peace didn’t go anywhere… it was simply covered over by ALOT more mental and emotional noise. It was now time to bring the light and peace I had found at the core to the shadow places that were being triggered through creating outer success.
Meditating in a cave or living alone on a tropical island now felt like kindergarten compared to the huge presence and powerful surrender required within the blissful chaos of a busy business and family life.
It’s easy to find peace sitting on a mountain top. It’s easy to find peace sitting under a palm tree on a tropical island sipping a coconut.
The real challenge lies in following our inner callings to create outer success, leaning into any discomfort that arises and transforming it into greater resilience, strength and awakening.
MY POINT…. if you have a busy business and a busy family life and you are struggling to find peace amongst it all… know that all of your stress, struggle, overwhelm and frustration is the doorway to discover the peace that lies at the core of who you are.
It is my passion and my mission to guide people to thrive under pressure in their business and life and experience the chaos of life AND the unshakable peace that lies at the core of who we are.
The full spectrum of experiencing life, fully alive and connected to the silence beneath it all.
