Just start being it. There is no need to create a situation first in which you are allowed to be it, no matter what you want to be and no matter how many people are involved. Just lead the way. Show them instead of telling them. Let it become so clear and obvious to everyone. Then there is nothing to discuss. It just is, as a fact, for everyone to make their own choices about. You have already made yours.

Leaders don’t wait for permission. They go first and they don’t look around if people are following them. The right people will follow, the rest will take another route in another direction.

If you try to manage the situation around you so you feel supported by others before you can lead, you make it harder on yourself than it needs to be. You cannot make or ask others to make a decision about something that is not currently happening at that moment.

Leaders lead, so lead and allow others the chance to discover whether they resonate with your kind of leadership. Then all other decisions will be easily made, by everyone involved. And you will not have lost a lot of time and energy on something that isn’t relevant in the first place.

Getting and looking for support will drain you. Stepping up and into it will feel like being a fish in the water. That is how you know you are meant to lead. And you don’t need any more confirmation than that.

Just connect with yourself and the moment, fall into that space, feel your heart opening up and then follow up with whatever you feel inspired to think, say or do. You are the only one who can do this. Nobody can do it fór you.

Have ever experienced a shift in perspective like this before? Where you stopped waiting and started being it and living it? Would you like to share it?

With love,

Ik ben een spiegel van Onvoorwaardelijke Zelf-Liefde en van nature een krachtige catalyst bij persoonlijke transformatieprocessen. Voor hen die zelf al contact hebben gemaakt met hun eigen goddelijkheid, goedheid en grootsheid, of het sterke verlangen hebben om dit te doen – en hier ook voor open staan, zal het samenzijn ervaren worden als een verademing, ondersteuning en bevestiging op je pad van ontwaken, zelfrealisatie en het shiften naar de volgende dimensie(s).
