I Didn’t Tell the Whole Truth or Why This is Called an Experiment

In my last post, I said I was afraid of this new mission because I’m afraid if I serve more, I’ll have to serve everybody and poof! I’ll spontaneously combust.

Pile o ashes.

Unbeknownst to me, that was not the entire truth. There was something far more real beneath that story.

Here is the truth, as of today. (It’s a video, if you don’t see it, click here)


 

After I turned off the camera, I felt… present. Able. Supple.

I kept saying to myself, “I can.”  I came inside to make tea (my studio is a few steps away from the house) and found Bob had left me one of those little tea tags with a quote on it, propped up on the kettle. It said:

Mantras you shouldn’t say: I don’t know; I’m not ready; I can’t do it.

This is an experiment in leaving behind perfectionism in the form of thinking I need to provide you with neat answers.

This is an experiment in finding the beauty and value in my process.

This is an experiment in living the qualities of savor and serve – honestly living.

This is an experiment in finding and following my heart’s desire.

This is an experiment in how all of this can help us remake our world.

Wow Jen.

I had just come from the S&S cafe after writing up my Life Organiser questions for this week. Mine were all about MY business and the self doubt I’m feeling. I wrote ‘I would like to stop struggling against what I know in my very soul is right for me.’

I’ve spent a week saying is ‘I don’t know if this is right’, ‘I’m not ready to do this’ and ‘I can’t do this’.

But it is about heart’s desire….and who are we to deny ourselves that…no matter how experimental? 🙂

Thank you

      Yesterday I had this heavy dark weight on my shoulders and I couldn’t pin it on just one thing – there were so many and I gave myself sleep and the okay to get a bit teary eyed. This morning I identified one issue, I hadn’t taken the time yesterday to center my week and sit with my Life Organizer and voice some of the things I’m feeling and facing. I felt so much let go by giving myself permission to enjoy the day. My heart’s desire starts as soon as I finish that last paper for my masters and I commit to my writing until the right job comes along. I too have to throttle that voice that says I’ll be living on the streets in six months after my husband kicks me out.

Oh, Jennifer, thank you for putting a voice to where I’m at too, for as I dig into the “what-the-hell-am-I-doin’s,” the fear bubbles up… but it’s only in sitting with the fear that I realize that it’s accompanied by the raw and precious knowing that I’m touching on something new and powerful and amazing….

This morning I listened to a Shift Network call with John O’Dea about ‘transforming conflict through 4 sacred skills or practices’ (shamanic in origin) … so that’s what’s in my mind as I come here today. He began by speaking of ‘the next evolutionary impulse’ of our species as a ‘synthesis of human ingenuity’ saying we’re “called” to collaborate, commune, and connect with new energies … to create ‘new neural networks’ based on a ‘synthesis of science, spirituality, and social action’ while being challenged by the ‘old stories that no longer serve’ and the a ‘vortex of entrope’ around us that we need to release.

Listening to you voice YOUR fears and processes for ‘dealing’ (which mirror my own in a myriad of ways) helps me relax into my anxieties around the changes I’m making. I sense there’s a collective energy of support available to all of us as we come to know and trust our TRUE selves in a grounded way … experimenting through action that yields results which give rise to the next action. I believe we’re discovering who we are and why we’re here moment to moment individually … learning & practicing new ways of being … developing new skill sets in an evolutionary manner on the personal level so we can collectively bring about planetary change consciously.

It’s not easy to believe we’ve been born for this … that we possess the requisite capacity for such work, yet letting go of those limiting beliefs and stepping into the limitless potential with humility and grace is exactly what I’m struggling with … and just maybe that’s true for MANY of us. I’m so glad you’ve opened this portal for connection and are willing to lead by example. Thank you.

Dearest Jen, I love you, and the raw honesty of the process in which you’re engaged right now.

There are always, within us, inner selves that hold our doubts and fears, as well as selves that hold our power and certainty…and so many others, each of which has at its heart a spiritual essence and truth.

Our work is to hold all these selves and their contradictions in a spacious and loving heart. To discover, as you so beautifully put it, what our true desires are and where they lead us. And to trust the journey even when it traverses swamps and deserts, or carries us through landscapes of incredible power and beauty.

More than once, in my life, I’ve let go of cherished identities–who I thought I was, in the world. Each time, it felt like a death. And each time, what I discovered was a deeper, fuller, more complex and yet ultimately simpler wholeness.

I know that the inner work you’re doing, and sharing so publicly, is already serving you and all of us here in your community. Know that we’re in this with you. That you are held in a love so profound that you cannot fail.

Love to you,

Hiro

Wow. Wow. Thank you thank you. As someone who sits here doodling, feeling stuck, wanting to paint, wondering if I will EVER figure out what “IT” is, terrified, thinking that I will be living in a hut if I really “DO” this, wanting the answers to the test, etc. etc. etc. and then I came across your amazingly wonderful post. THANK YOU for doing this. THANK YOU for creating such inspiring words and thought. I now know that I am not alone in this mysterious yearning quest that continues to whisper and nudge. I’m not a total wackadoo thinking that really finding what you are meant to do on this earth…your heart’s desire… is the most meaningful way to live fully and cherish this amazing gift of life and ALSO be able to give back to the world that needs so much. Instead of feeling guilty about painting or doodling or not “accomplishing” for the next couple of precious hours that I have to myself before the deluge of responsibilities come rushing in, I am going to cherish them and know that the doodling and the painting and the courage that comes with it are more seeds and clues for this cool cool journey. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I’m in!! xx

Thank you for your courage and for reminding me that I am not ever limited by what I create. Our personal development is a continuum.

When you shared about this being an experiment in finding your heart’s desire, I so deeply appreciate your saying that out loud. I know this to be the journey I’m on and in that my practice is to trust and listen to my voice, to let it out, to take steps toward what calls me. I realize I don’t have to have all the answers about what I’m working on explained or wrapped up tidy in a box. The journey is about allowing myself to step into the fear so that I move toward what calls me. Your courage in sharing out loud reminds me to keep doing the same.

Thank you in a BIG way.

When listening to your videos, I see a mirror of my own longing to both savor and serve with the accompanying fear and loss that rises up after losing what was once a safe identity. I’ve been in the space of the misty path as I call it for the last few years. I can assure you that some people will think you are crazy, and some people will admire you and some will be jealous. What you are teaching now, is something most personal transformation coaches don’t dare to do, which is show how difficult it is to be brave and vulnerable.

I continue to applaud what you’re doing. I find your videos so comforting to see that I’m not alone on this journey of both expansion and sometimes dehabilitating fear.

I’m in the midst of celebration and fear. Yesterday I found out that my first novel made it through the first cut in the Amazon national novel writing contest. I’m feeling those anxious pangs of perfectionism. I’m rather terrified that my book isn’t good enough. Yet I also feel so much satisfaction in doing what deeply scared me.

So, thank you for all you’re doing!

Your voice and presence continues to embody deeper and deeper groundedness.
Especially loved how you “lost and found” your path/train-of-thought.
Perfect template for the path/practice:
1) Begin to ramble off the path.
2) Notice and declare: I’m veering off the path.
3) Stop. Wait. Don’t fix. Receive.
4) The path returns to you. And you return to it.

I love that you see this experiment is about finding and following your heart’s desire. I’m with you. I’ve been secretly dipping into this question for the last few months, alone, in the corner of my writing room. I’ve unfortunately, been using one of the mantras on the teabag: “I don’t know.”

Like you, I want to find my heart’s desire. I believe as you do, that doing this does serve the world, even if just by making my spirit more loving, more compassionate, more open and brighter. I believe that kind of energy enlivens and therefore, serves the world.

Let’s say it all together: You can. I can. We all can!

Ah, thank you Jen, for showing up this way. Being on a similar path of finding the sweet spot where my hearts desire and gifts of my unique journey jell with the (many) hunger(s) of our world, and as someone who’ve NEVER been able to fit myself into a box or a brand, but nevertheless has committed to master form/structure to better offer myself and engage with the world, it’s heartening to hear that yes, we do these things, we create brands, websites, come up with meaningful words to try to describe what it’s all about, but deep down, it’s so so so much more … it’s a journey, it’s an inquiry, it’s living yourself out fully, awake, engaged, naked, available to it all, fear and failure included. Yes, to not get too attached to the story, the box, the brand, but to consistently, truly live it … that’s real. And I dig it. With heart.

Jen,
Thank you for this. I was in a shame spiral before seeing your video. I lead a prayer service for the teachers at my school today in an effort to inspire them. I poured my heart and soul into it. I cried and shared my shame with them. I told them how much their love and support had meant to me. I invited them to explore self love and compassion. I had to leave before the meeting was over, and I left the service feeling like a freak. I came home and numbed out with food. I had no idea what they thought of it. I actually got several emails telling me how grateful they were for my honesty and willingness to “go there”. I didn’t “hear” the love they were giving me back. I only heard my gremlins telling me that “it was too much” . .”you freaked them out with your tears”.
BUT I heard you!! And now I can go back and read the emails and feel the love. My challenge is resisting the urge to numb, and having the courage to lean into the discomfort. I have faith that this will come. I am not alone. Thank you for this reminder!

Powerful statement… “unbeknownst to me, this was not the entire truth.”

It’s so profound to be in a moment and feel in that moment that I am living my truth… only to be led to a deeper place and discover that it was not my full truth. I’m learning to accept things that were “true for me at the time” with compassion rather than beating myself up about how I was “wrong”, love myself for what that looked like, and continue on. All part of my own experiment…

Our journeys – our growth in this grand experiment we call life – is greatly facilitated by work like yours, Jen. Thank you and much love.

Dear Jennifer,

Thank you for your honesty, vulnerability and transparency in sharing your process. I am on the cusp of discovering my soul’s truth, finding/expressing my voice, bringing forth my unique gifts into the world and shifting into the role of teacher.

During the past few months I have been looking to you as a mentor and a guide… and have been greatly inspired by your teach now, self trust, and satisfaction finder programs. I see you as a role model and potential “niche-mate” and wish to step out and teach and serve in the way that I perceive you to be serving: creatively, lovingly, abundantly and fearlessly… by inspiring and teaching others how to love, honor, trust and nurture themselves.

My fears which I am in the process of overcoming are that I don’t yet know enough yet, that I will become overwhelmed in serving others I will lose the ability to nurture and care for myself and that I won’t be able to make able to successfully earn a living, etc, etc, etc… many of the same ones that you shared today. And I am grateful, surprised and humbled to see someone who I perceive as someone as being totally successful and who has “made it”, in their process of starting something new publicly share the fears that are coming up for you in starting a new project.

I feel you and I am excited for you and really appreciate you being honest and real. I feel like my purpose too is to help guide other’s into connecting with and living with their heart’s desire and at the same time I am learning how to connect with and honor my own truth. Moment by moment, day by day, releasing patterns of perfection and need of acceptance and approval and realizing that I am here to teach what it is that I most need to learn.

Thank you, Christy

I’m inspired by your vulnerable, heart felt sharing. It models for me what real openness is about.
And isn’t what you call “an experiment”, and “not knowing” such a perfect way of modeling what being in the NOW is about anyway? Maybe you’ve described in such perfect words what it’s like to learn to live in the NOW.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could all take such an approach, calling it an experiment, learning to listen to the promptings of the NOW, instead of staying stuck in our heads, continuing to do what’s been done before?

Thank you for you heart felt sharing!

I just bought your book and wanted to print out the prompts to use in my current planner but Lifeorganizerbook.com apparently no longer exists. How can I get the prompts to print out?

your body language says so much.

I am sure you know the metaphor of the phoenix.

That’s the kind of power I see you tapping into.

thanks.

I’ve only just read this, 3 weeks later!!
Thank you for sharing your realness and beauty on camera. You have inspired me to do the same. I feel wonderfully connected when I read the comments and realise that you and I are not alone with our fear. It is as real as the truth and beauty we seek. I’m wondering if in letting go of our boxed-in identity for ourselves, we can see fear for the goddess she is. And in this space, we can welcome and revere her as a gift from the divine not a burden from our survival brains.
I look forward to your new experiment and am sure that I will learn much from it! Melissa 🙂
