I recently talked to a healer about what’s next for her.

I had a strong feeling that her next step is creating her own healing modality. I could sense it hovering around her, it was already HERE.

All she really has to do right now is open up to it.

When I asked her about it, she confirmed she sensed it, too. She knows it’s her next step.


But she’s stalling. Because it scares the shit out of her.


It’s not because she’s afraid she’s not good enough. Sure, there’s some doubt, but deep down? She knows she can do it.

It’s not because she’s scared to create her own healing modality. She trusts that will fall into place as soon as she opens herself up to it.


It’s because she’s afraid of having to promote it next. Of doing what it takes to put it out into the world. Of putting a spotlight on her business, her work, herself.

That freaks her out.

And she’s hiding that deep fear behind reasons that are actually excuses.


They sound like this:

I don’t know enough yet. I need to learn more. Go to this event first. Do this, that, or the other first. It’s not the right time yet. So I’m waiting a bit longer.


She’s not the only healer or coach I’ve seen doing this over the years.

I’ve seen MOST of them do it, actually.

And I’ve done it myself, too!


Of course, everything takes as long as it takes, and it’s important to follow your own pace.

And SOMETIMES, it truly isn’t the right time for something just yet.

But often? It IS.

And deep down, you already know it.


How you can tell FOR SURE that it’s time to take a deep breath and tackle the REAL underlying reason you’re not doing whatever is calling you next?

When you’re justifying to yourself (and others) why you’re not ready yet.

When you’re justifying why it’s better to wait.

When you’re justifying why you truly need this, that or the other thing first.

When you say that you’re waiting for a sign from the universe that now is the right time for you. (If that’s you, by the way? Consider the fact that you’re reading this now as the sign that you are ready.)



If you TRULY want to help people and make a difference?

Do it. Get out there, make yourself visible so the people you can help can actually FIND you.


If you TRULY believe that there’s something you’re born to do?

Do it.


If you TRULY want to follow your flow and live in alignment with your soul?

Do it. Stop blocking your flow and playing deaf to your calling.


I’m NOT saying this from a place of judgment.

I’m NOT saying you should just take a deep breath and get over yourself.

And I DON’T think ANY less of you if decide to keep waiting. It’s all good.


I’ve been where you are and I’m STILL there sometimes!

I’ve been SO fucking scared of making myself visible that I spent the first two years of my business actively making myself INVISIBLE.


I DO want to invite you to be honest with yourself, though.

It’s OK to feel too scared to move forward.

And if that’s the case, please admit that to yourself.


It takes MUCH more energy to suppress your fears & deepest desires than it is to face your fears & GO for your dreams.

I KNOW. I’ve done both many times.

It NEVER feels truly good to NOT do it.

You NEVER feel truly empowered.

It ALWAYS keeps nagging in the back of your mind.

And it casts a shadow over your joy pretty much most of the time.


You can only change what you’re willing to see. And I’m inviting you to SEE:

What is it you TRULY want to do, feel called to do, deep down ache to do?

And why aren’t you doing that yet? In all honesty: what’s the REAL reason?


If you’re still reading this now, consider this the definite sign you were looking for.


You are ready.

Now is the time.

Now is YOUR time.


Take a step right now, no matter how small, to put yourself out there, let people see you, let others benefit from your knowledge, your wisdom, your gift.

You. Truly. Are. Ready.
