Throwing in the corporate gig

Throwing in the corporate gig

It’s funny how quickly we forget how amazing something was when we first got it, like my first corporate job out of uni. I was so incredibly happy and proud when I got that first job. I knew I had broken my comfort zone to get it, I had to present in front of a room of 40 people at a recruitment firm, that stuff at 20, is soul developing! Even though now my choices around my work have changed, in that moment, I had everything. I was fulfilled, it felt good and I had to work to get it! I felt full of POWER and my passion was alite.

In 2016 I left my 8 year career in IT and Marketing to pursue yoga teaching, because that was now my thing, that was what lit me up, that was what got me going...

I'm coming out of the spiritual, soulFULL, sensual closet right NOW (new website!)

I'm coming out of the spiritual, soulFULL, sensual closet right NOW (new website!)

My heart beats so hard, and heat rushes over my skin as I realise I’ve gotta go deeper and shine brighter so people can feel me more.

I start to sweat, but I'm not running anywhere. I'm staring out of my living room, at the sky, feeling the absolute burn of fear melting the core of me. 

Fear that I won’t be able to make my dream real. Fear that I won’t be able to survive if I ditch my soul and go back to corporate. Fear that I have nowhere to go but through. Fear that I’ll not be able to feed myself. Fear that if I give up, hundreds and thousands of souls won’t get to experience specifically what I can bring them. My unique offerings. 

I heard yesterday this idea about being in the ‘spiritual closet’ - hiding your real 'spirituality'. I've come out of the ‘spiritual closet’ in many ways, but my oh my - there is more to go, and I can’t hold it in anymore (thanks Rebecca Campbell!).

When your whole mission is freedom and you feel the exact opposite.

This is where the rubber hits the road, the point where you are tested with everything you’ve got and you have to use everything you have learnt along the way, all at the same time, with laser focus and intention just to get through another day..

When I was in high school I wrote an English paper on the song “The Climb” by No Doubt. No Doubt was my favourite band, it was my first album purchase. I remember getting it on Christmas Day from my parents and just listening on repeat for days. I still love that album.

That song represents everything about my journey, and so many others right now that are becoming awake, releasing the veils, and actually going for their dreams. At times the journey can be swift, flowing, rocket like. At other times you feel like you might actually die, like you are out of breath, out of juice, out of inspiration and like you are attempting to pioneer something that you’ve totally overestimated how long it would take to make real. 

You go all the way in the opposite direction, and then slowly but surely you climb back. 

Like the lyrics of the No Doubt song:

Step by step I come closer to reaching the top
Every step must be placed so that I don't fall off
Looking down to see about how much higher I am
Another cool wind comes through, brushes my skin
Oh, the harder I push the tension does grow
I gather my thoughts the further and further I go
With some luck I just might keep on climbing
So better to climb than to face a fall (face a fall)

So high the climb (So high the climb)
I can't turn back now
Must keep climbing up to the clouds
So high the climb (So high the climb)
Can't turn back now
Must keep climbing up to the clouds

Says it all really. This may seem dramatic, but I know you, I know you get me.  

So, about a week ago this was my experience - feeling the opposite of free felt like the perfect sensation of anxiety, tightness in chest, lack mentality on repeat, stuck-ness, rejection, feeling unseen, invisible, and a total lack of connection. Almost like I was not actually in my life. I was observing, yet this was the experience. 

In every area there was something. It wasn’t just money, it wasn’t just relationships, It wasn’t just my body, it wasn’t just my emotions, or the sense of insecurity or lack of confidence. It was everything. The entire spectrum of how I look at Inner Freedom had seemingly imploded on me. It was as if I was about to have the biggest reckoning of my soul yet, like now I was going to see what I was really made of, what my healing capacity could alchemise. How was I going to turn this hot mess of an experience into gold, just like I do with my clients?

Every aspect of me was shaken up and cracked apart. It left me so stuck, so out of control. So I processed, and cleared, let go and processed some more - and the penny dropped. I was still playing victim to my life circumstances. Victimhood is an archetype many of us wear as a way of blaming something other than ourselves for what happens to us in life. 

I know my capability as a co-creator of life. I know it is all up to me, yet I was experiencing the polarity of this. The exact opposite.

The essence of the work that I want to bring to the world is a whole new paradigm of empowerment that reinstates our place on earth as master co-creators of our destiny. This is what I know in my bones to be true and real.

We are, I am, master creators. We choose what happens. 

This got me thinking, what really is healing anyway? I asked myself the question and what came was the juice that got me through.

Healing is changing one form, into another. 

Healing is being able to recognise when you are in the thick of a catalyst that can bring you alchemy i.e. changing the makeup of the particular pattern, behaviour, cycle that is playing out on the movie screen of your life - into what you really desire or your higher potential and possibility.

This begs the question, what do I want to change the experience to?

Have you ever noticed how difficult it is to actually claim what you desire in your life? To really name it? Have you noticed that it becomes a lot easier once you know what you do not want in your life? How do we know what we don't want? We've likely just experienced it. When we have the awareness to take that life experience and direct it toward evolution and growth, we start to get how we can create our desires, how to manifest.

What I learnt was I was being tested to actually name, claim and express ultimate freedom as the desire for myself, my soul clients and the wider community. I know that my higher/eternal/soul self was gifting me (my human/ego self) the experience of knowing the total opposite across every area so that I could be crystal clear on what I am not available for, what is no longer acceptable in my sphere and further how I could bring the most juiciest experience to my clients that I myself intimately have gone through. 

So, then begins the alchemy, the changing one substance into another from a place of power, sovereignty, soulful intelligence. 

I remembered once again my innate capacity to heal myself.

I remembered once again that the biggest hurdles take me closer to my true potential on the fastest path possible.

I remembered I am not a victim, and instead I am power-full.

What happens next is like magic. The burning rush of fire-like action moving through my veins. Time to get creating, time to express once more, time to stand out loud and proud UNAPOLOGETICALLY. 

Fear turns into passion.

Doubt turns into conviction.

Unworthiness turns into unconditional love. 

Victimhood turns into sovereignty. 

I’ll be getting deeper into the topic of healing, and how we can really master our reality, at a free info night this Saturday. This is your opportunity to learn about how I create healing for myself and my clients. You will get to understand why healing is no longer a hippie, woo woo, niche experience. You will get to learn that it is simply your time to make change in your life for yourself, your loved ones and the world around you. 

It is time, there is no question. 

Join me Saturday at One Big Heart Yoga, 5pm. To lock in your spot for the free event, go here for more details

Make it your time. Take back the power.

I'll rise up for my tribe

Having just returned from what has been the most illuminating week spent in nature on second level Yoga Teacher training (seriously, it should be called ‘learn how to live again’ training), with fifteen other change makers, I am reminded of something so simple but so profoundly important – a collective community (or ‘tribe’) that is vibrating at a similar frequency to life, as nature, as mother earth, is powerful beyond words in invoking more love, more trust and more joy into our seemingly individual lives. Especially in times like these…

It’s of no news to any of us that we are in what may be the most confusing time of our generation with the news of Donald Trump taking presidency. Now more than ever, my heart aches for humanity, and for me personally, I’m hurting for women. Even before hearing the news today I felt a constriction in my throat and felt nauseous. I was reminded of the deep pain women of many ages and backgrounds have been feeling for thousands of years through experiencing physical, spiritual and emotional slavery (did you know that human trafficking is one of the most significant human rights challenges of this century, globally? It does help me to see where my energy might be best served). I sense that there is a collective feeling of unworthiness that has again bubbled to the surface for women around the world and I would be lying if I said I couldn’t draw parallels between the Trump situation and the impact on women feeling powerless. However, with the heartache, always comes an opportunity, and a moment to be grateful…

I am in awe of the beautiful people I shared the past two weeks with on Yoga Teacher Training. As we dove into the experience, the level of unconditional love was palpable. At times, I found myself not feeling like I deserved all of it, that I wasn’t worthy of such beauty, divinity and permission to be seen as my true self, but of course - I am! We came together two weeks ago as a group of people that didn’t know each other, and by the end, we were an unbroken unit of complete acceptance and truth. We had revealed our shadows to each other and claimed our radiance in the spotlight. We ecstatically danced and sang, laughed and cried. We laid our hands on one another to provide support and assistance, we shared every meal and thanked our continuously giving mother earth for providing it. We walked with and observed nature in its purity, and felt our human selves merge with it. We filled our cups so full of love and gratitude that we could no longer keep our happy tears contained. We simply felt everything, as we basked in awe of the unique expression of heart that unraveled before our eyes. It was a breathtaking experience.

What was so powerful was how good it felt to support my new friends and see them shine their light as they expressed their love of yoga and life. I experienced a deep understanding that all humans have this, a heart. Underneath all of the conditioned thinking, the hurt, pain or rejection, we all have a pure heart that shines brightly, that radiates like the sun. There were so many shifts and transformations that took place in our little tribe of fifteen that would not have taken place without each other. We blossomed, because we did it together. We left feeling more connected to our own human hearts, because we connected to each other. We felt what it was like to connect without judgment, just with pure love and selflessness. Now, we leave as fifteen humans that can go out in the world and build our own tribes that can too experience the gift of heart connection. 

We may feel powerless when it comes to Trump, but we have a choice to create and contribute to our own tribes that thrive on love, acceptance, compassion and unwavering trust. I see so much beauty in those around me, doing amazingly inspiring things for themselves, their family, friends, community, and for the planet – and it is making a difference, IT IS RAISING THE VIBRATION. I know where I want to spend my time and energy and know how important it is that I honor that and rise to the challenge.

Do you?

I choose to rise up, as a women in the world that has choice and freedom to express her truth. I choose to work on creating a conscious enterprise that empowers women to claim their place on earth and remain grounded here, owning their humanness and radiance. I choose to rise up with light and joy through my interactions on the street, on social media, in a yoga class I'm teaching, within a blog I'm writing or when look in the mirror. I realise that this situation is a HUGE wake up call to own all parts of me, because if I am triggered by this man with power, than I have something to learn. This isn’t to say that I choose ignorance, this is a potent choice to very consciously lead in the direction of trust, love and grace. The only choice I give to myself is to TRUST MORE DEEPLY than ever before, that I will be held by mother earth, the universe, and that I belong here. From this place, I will help to serve myself and then others. I will consciously contribute to the high vibing tribes I am a part of (and so grateful for), and will continue to build my own tribe by owning my leadership role in raising the vibration – that is, to keep the energy clean and buzzing with vitality, so we can evolve.  I believe this is our right here, we are allowed to expand and grow and enjoy this day as our essential nature, in fact that is what I believe the universe is calling us to do right now. Because if we own our human selves, and our ride, with whole hardheartedness, we can consciously give to those that really need it – once we land again on earth. There are so many humans that desperately need our help, and for us to come together in unity – as one big conscious tribe.

I know what I’ll be doing.

And when I feel like giving up, I’ll remember that I am free. I am love. I am light. I am deeply purposeful on my quest to raise the vibration of humanity.

Peace and Love.

My grandest soul vision

 

A transition in life can be incredibly scary, paralyzing, inspiring and magical all at once. Like many of us, I'm experiencing this right now as I make the big move away from successfully leading a corporate marketing team in technology, and therefore a huge part of my identity. I've also sold my high income dependent New York style loft apartment in Sydney’s inner west that is oh so cool and only purchased 14 months ago. I'm throwing in all I have to invest (in a big way) in my soul’s growth without any guarantees of this 'working out'. In true Amy fashion, I’ve gone with the extreme route of doing this all at once. Why? Because I have a burning desire to live my truth right now, so that I can make an impact to our deeply hurting planet earth, and I've come to trust my intuition. What I now understand is to really give my desired life a crack, I must have a crystal clear vision that I make very public, that bares my soul for all to see, that feels so vulnerable that it scares me. This is my first blog post representing my new life, and a declaration of how I will show up in the world, for me, and for you.

My interpretation of a soul vision is a manifestation of what I desire to become true. It’s the why behind what drives me forward, the message that anchors me back into my truth, the reminder that keeps me in check. The vibrant sentence that I feel in my heart when I read or express it out loud. The collection of words that sends tingles all over my body because I have undeniably hit home by intending for it to be so. Before we get to my grandest soul vision, a word on the soul evolution.

For me, this thing we call life isn’t so much a journey, as it is an infinite evolution of the soul. This does require a belief that our soul is absolutely and irrefutably a part of us, and if we lead with our soul’s purpose, we will be actively participating in our unique evolution. When I reflect on my own path, in my 28 years of life here on earth, I can see clearly the pattern of evolution in my sacred stories and in my changing perspective of the world around us. Sometimes the lessons feel harsh, unfair, un-just, but in every case I learn and become stronger. The bigger the lesson, the bigger my soul’s growth and illumination of truth.  My interpretation of the soul evolution is one that leads us toward freedom, compassion, deep love, peace, and connection. Connection to our hearts, each other, nature, and ultimately the source of all – the universe.

I have learned the only way to evolve is to go right through by feeling, surrendering and consciously participating. Not easy, I know! I now understand that this is ok, and it will always be ok. The universe is here for us, in every moment, helping us to see more clearly. We can do this together and participate in our collective forward motion, if we settle into the truth that our evolution and life purpose is infinite in nature. Imagine enjoying the process, knowing it is inescapably moving forward and has no end point. We have no choice but to soften into this and let it go. We don’t wait to be happy or to be further along in life. We are happy when we choose to be and we know happiness is just a passing state, just like grief or sadness. Sometimes my soul evolution is delivered in the harshest of lessons, or in a poor choice that I experience as regret. It really doesn’t matter because I still learn and have forever to try again. Do you feel the peace that comes with this knowing? I do!

Peace comes for me when I don’t fear death and surrender to the process of infinite soul evolution. I believe it’s our purpose on earth to evolve our souls, so I allow it to be just as it is in every moment. To support my evolved life I ask myself what is my desired state of being? How do I want to be and show up in the world? My answer, with Peace and Grace. I can have grace in the darkest of times, just as I can hold peace. It is my constant desired and chosen state.

And so, here we have it, my soul’s grandest vision….

My soul’s grandest vision is to empower the peaceful evolution of our collective souls that illuminates our divine right to live each moment with Grace.

Grace is defined as smoothness and elegance of movement and the originating word from Old French Latin was 'gratus', meaning 'pleasing or thankful' and is related to the concept of gratitude. I think this says it all. We have the profound gift of gratitude in every moment. When we are grateful for all of the lessons and experiences we receive, we are naturally able to live gracefully. Coincidentally, Tony Robbins guided a beautifully simple gratitude practice recently on the Tim Ferris podcast that solidified the potency in this message. If we choose to experience gratitude, we cannot simultaneously suffer and can move naturally with the knowing we are held.

A life lived with grace requires soul connection and without this, we fall stagnant, we lose momentum. We simply cannot do this alone. That’s why I’m making it my choice, to devote myself to a life lived with unwavering grace. I know by embodying this, I will illuminate the same choice within you (but only if we surrender to the potent truth that soul evolution is our purpose and it is infinite).

I imagine a world moving with vibrancy, softness, and momentum. Joy fills our hearts as we see each other more clearly, we spend time in nature, we speak, we touch, smell, sing, move, write, play, create – all in peace, even whilst we evolve and learn the lessons. The world is no longer about ‘work’, in fact the word vanishes. We understand it as co-creation, the dance, and therefore don’t struggle. We literally just be with each other – talking, growing, and playing. We be curious about each other, the unique colour in our friend’s eyes or the way we feel when we’re with them.

I imagine a world moving with grace whilst we evolve, not after we evolve. We sit in the hard, dark spots, knowing they are guiding us, and allow that to be ok. We move with each other and we are aware of the high and low vibrational energy that comes from what we choose to consume or attract, all the while learning what serves us best moment to moment.

We are abundant in our health of mind, body and spirit and realise we always have enough. The universe supports us when we receive our abundance. We let our hearts feel EVERYTHING, and then we let go, and we keep moving. When we connect with those around us living in grace, momentum shoots us higher. We notice, and celebrate, then sit peacefully.

This collection of words has been written to open my sacred story to others that may resonate, so that we can learn from each other and take leaps forward together. I am wholeheartedly devoted to a life of freedom and I know the universe needs me to step into my power in order to receive the riches that I deserve. So, here I am, open to receive, and so excited to see what is around the corner for us all.

To complete this declaration, I will own my truth and share it with the world!

My name is Amy Maree Webb and I am a soul leader who is ok with being a work in progress, a yoga teacher, sharer of mother earths oils, and advocate for a world of Graceful Living. I promise to embody the state of grace, to help you access your divine right to do the same.
