I’m Not Brave

January 25, 2019

I don’t like it when people tell me I’m ‘braver than they are’, as if I have something they don’t and that’s why they can’t do the work.

It’s still terrifying to me… every single time.
I want to resist and run away… every single time.
It brings me to my knees... every single time.

Doing the work of facing into my trauma and wounding in order to really heal. Letting go of old ways of being that I thought served me and kept me safe so that I can step into what comes next. Getting really honest with myself about who I’m here to be and the work I’m here to do, as well as what actually needs to happen in order to bring it to life.

The difference is I move from completely terrified to doing the work *while* completely terrified more quickly… because I know the power of facing forward, moving through, and surrendering to the unfolding. I know what lies just beyond the point where it feels like it might consume us, and it’s everything we’re seeking. Love, peace, purpose, source, and joy.

The Void is the gateway, the invitation, the initiation. It asks you this: are you willing to go to the ends of yourself, to see what you might become?

The key is to say yes, regardless of the terror.
To just keep showing up, regardless of the desire to hide.

I will never sugarcoat or make this work sound easy, because it’s not. And it’s okay that it’s not easy, that’s to be expected. But you are stronger than you give yourself credit for, and far more capable than you know.

We’re only in week three of this round of Journey Mapping and already seeing some big, big shifts. I love this work and am continually humbled by the sweet souls who find the courage to step into it with me. 

“I am so glad I’ve signed up for your program, I have realized that the programs I went through before never encouraged me to feel my negative feelings, but rather to focus only on positive. And I never managed to do it. Thank you for your work.”

“I have to say, I didn’t know what to expect from Journey Mapping. But each week’s journalling and worksheets have been thought-provoking and driven me to find out something new about myself. I just wanted to say, thank you, Stephenie, I have truly been enjoying this!”

“I am committed to being my best self, knowing that it will be a continuous journey with no end destination. I am grateful for this wake-up call that is bringing me closer to who I am meant to be.”

Are you willing to go to the ends of yourself, to see what you might become? Regardless of the terror and the desire to hide out and play small?
