Hello again friend!
Today is the DAY!!
Oh my goodness, in all my 12 years in business I cannot recall a time I was this excited to share something with you!
In my email yesterday, I shared with you that I’ve created this Impossible Project. Now I get to tell you what it is.
First let me tell you about what I created because it’s actually what makes me giddy about this whole thing. Then I’ll tell you more about the Impossible part.
Here’s what I created:
It’s kind of a bold claim, right?
“Show you who you really are.”
Here’s the thing, though…
NO ONE TOLD ME ANY OF THIS. And I’m not exaggerating in any way when I say that what I share in this course is the essence of what has completely changed my life.
It’s hard to describe, but I know I need to give it a shot if I want to convince you to bring this understanding into your world. And I REALLY want this for you.
Some (deep) back story…
In early 2000, I spent three days in bed in a paralyzing panic attack. The day before I was driving across the Golden Gate Bridge, saying to myself in the most casual matter-of-fact voice, “If this feeling doesn’t change soon, no one would blame me if I decided not to continue living. You can’t love someone and want them to live like this.” It felt simple, and clear.
I’m not sure I’d say I was suicidal (I wasn’t picturing jumping, exactly), but I was absolutely at my lowest point ever and feeling deeply hopeless.
I found a therapist and read a bunch of books and the intensity of panic and anxiety lessened. I got back to work and things got a bit better.
I was anxious a lot, though. It ran in my family. “We have anxiety in our family,” we’d all say. I hid it from most people, as many “anxious people” do.
Over the years, I studied every anxiety solution you can imagine. I learned EFT tapping, massage, meditation, energy work, prayer, beliefs work, thought work… I went on nature walks, practiced mindfulness, feng shui-ed my house.
I felt better after a lot of it, for a little while anyway. I even taught a bunch of the strategies and techniques to my clients.
The problem was, over time the effectiveness of these practices would wear off. Either it just didn’t work as well after a while, or I just couldn’t stick with it for the long haul – which of course made me feel even worse about myself.
I knew it was my fault that I was so miserable because I didn’t have the willpower to stick with my “wellness practices.”
Eventually, I kind of gave up. It was a downward spiral . We had a bunch of stuff going on in our family and my personal life that, in my mind, reinforced what a terrible person I was for not taking care of myself and all the important things that needed to be handled.
Jeez, it makes me sad writing it all out.
But here’s where things get better!
One day, in my ever-search for the solution to feeling anxious and lost all the time, I was watching a video from a spiritual/self-help teacher. (I watched a lot of those.)
As I was walking around the kitchen, listening but not really watching, I heard the teacher say this: “You cannot be broken. It’s impossible for you or any human being to be broken. Every single human being has absolute and complete health and well-being.”
And I knew it was the Truest thing I’d ever heard. Even though, before that moment, I had been convinced that I was actually broken. My experiences in therapy and even in my self-help healing adventures actually seemed to reinforce my brokenness. But all in one moment, I knew that was a total lie in the same way that I knew I was deeply, forever in love with each of my babies the moment I saw them. Irrevocably, unconditionally in love. That same kind of beyond-thinking truth.
That was the beginning of a path to freedom and clarity I’d never experienced before.
You know how I so often say, “You were made for this. I know because you know.”? Well, this course is the big, beautiful, gorgeous backstory that will help you see as deeply and absolutely as I do that you were, in fact, MADE FOR THIS.
This is not a promise that all of your problems will disappear. Nope, not at all. It’s me doing my very best to show you what I’ve actually learned about how we work as humans, in a way that I had never heard before. I don’t understand why we’re not taught this in grade school, but we aren’t. In fact, in many ways, we’re taught the opposite.
But not anymore. Not if I can help it.
So, my Impossible Project is to have 1,000 people go through the Made for This course by April 1st. Since that would be about 25% of our email list alone, we definitely have a 20% or less chance of reaching that goal.
But that’s not the point. The point is that now YOU can know that you were made for this life, for your dreams, for that call within you. That you no longer wonder why you feel so stuck, anxious, overwhelmed… why you might know you are made for so much MORE than you’ve been able to do, be and create, yet not be able to deliver on it.
Until maybe now, when you see who you really are, my friend.
I hope you love this course. I have never loved creating anything in the way I loved creating this to share with you.
I love you and I want you to live with all of the freedom you imagine.
P.S. Here’s a link to the Made for This course. It’s the most soulful, joyful, honest thing I’ve ever created. I hope you decide to join [link to course].
