LIBERATION LOVE STORY:
1) TELL US YOUR LIBERATED LOVE STORY. WHERE DID IT ALL BEGAN? AND WHAT IS YOUR REALITY NOW?
My Liberated Love Story begins last October, with my lovely cousin Lara Berg (Creative Director for Eyes Wide Open) helping me to begin my path to Liberation! I was in a very happy time of my life as I was newly married, but I was trying to mask a deep inner struggle as well. I was slowly trying to integrate my passions and my visions for the world into my working life, but was consistently told that it would not be successful: “you won’t make any money; it sounds more like a hobby to me; I don’t think it’s a good idea; why don’t you get a regular job?” I was attempting to break free of these remarks by promoting my blog about health and wellness, but the comments by others were wearing down my normally “watch me” attitude and, thus, causing me to sink deeper into this hole that I was desperately trying to escape from. A “normal job” to me meant trudging to an office every day, staring at the clock, waiting for the day to end, making money – a drone, a robot, a zombie.
Lara and her partner (and the “Eyes Wide Open Ninja”) Kevin were here to DJ for our wedding in October 2013, and I had always admired what she was doing – what she loved; she seemed so happy! I had watched her evolve into a fulfilled, happy, relaxed, dynamic chick, and I wanted to know her secret! So, when she told me about Eyes Wide Open Life and that they were looking for a Community Care Goddess, I jumped at the chance. Through loving guidance, divine wisdom, unique business genius, and so much more from the entire team at EWO, I broke free of what had been holding me back and truly lived, loved, and began to form the business that I’ve always dreamed of with my Eyes Wide Open! The clarity, the peacefulness, and the fulfillment that I feel on a daily basis is thanks to the Eyes Wide Open Collective, and the programs and support that we offer, to help entrepreneurs put their Great Work out into the world and change it for the better. I am so fortunate to be a part of this!
My reality now is that I get to work with some of the most amazing, motivated, and completely brilliant people on the planet that truly understand the New Economy and the need to be Financially Liberated. We help people get a recurring, integral dose of clarity, conscious be-is-ness, and doing business, and living the life they want, awake, aware, and with Eyes Wide Open. And I am one of those people – I am IN LOVE with Liberation!
2) WHAT HAS BEEN THE KEY LIBERATION LOVE LESSON FOR YOU? WHAT KEY LEARNING MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO LIBERATE YOUR SELF AND STEP INTO YOUR LIBERATION LOVE STORY AND LIFE?
What do I want? Why do I want it? How am I gonna get it?
Leading with my heart, going with my gut, coming from a place of honesty and love, knowing that positivity rules! I need to do what is best for me and my business/ GREAT WORK and for those that I am trying to help/guide/teach through my Great Work, whether it be through the work that I do with EWO, or in my other business ventures. Alexis tells you what you need to hear, which may not necessarily be what you want to hear, and having that truthful attitude incorporated into my business and life has been integral.
Doing the Money Map was a HUGE lesson/ epiphany for me. Having those numbers laid out for me, and deciding what my numbers were was tough, but completely gratifying! I was raised to believe that only money = success, but my reality is that I don’t need to slave away for money to be happy… or successful. I need to do what feels right, what helps others, find my passions, and put them out into the world to be happy. The money is simply a byproduct of that. Now, I’m living this reality and it is, truly, LIBERATING! I feel free – it freaking rocks!
3) WHAT’S THE TRANSFORMATIONAL QUESTION YOU WOULD ASK SOMEONE WHO IS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT A LIBERATED LIFE FOR THEMSELVES?
What does a Liberated Life look like for you and why will this make you feel fulfilled? What is holding you back? Why?
4) HOW HAS HAVING YOUR MONEY MAP NUMBERS ALLOWED YOU TO CREATE YOUR LIBERATION LOVE STORY & LIVE YOUR LIBERATED LIFE?
The Money Map numbers were truly eye-opening. I grew up with the idea drilled into me that money was the answer, money would make you happy, and that I had to work FOR money. I didn’t really like that; it made me feel uncomfortable and… well, squirmy. I had dreams, passions, Great Work that I knew would benefit me, and those around me, and I was never worried about money, even though I consistently heard “how are you going to make money doing THAT?” and “how much does that pay?”
Then I found my Money Map number and it… just…clicked. This is the number that I need to feel liberated, the number that I will make work for me so that I can put my Great Work out there! And it is so attainable. It was surprising… liberating. I can live this Liberated Life with my Great Work; we all can!
