In March of last year, I went back to the Medicine Wheel, and heard a very clear message about social media.
I thought I understood it at the time, but it’s only now that I fully understand the full scope of its meaning.
I was introduced to the wheel around 2005, when I was working at The Ranch, also getting my Masters degree
As fate would have it, I was surrounded by healers, shamans, Firewalkers, Mystery School teachers and some of the most amazing friends and mentors I’ve ever known.
I didn’t know it at the time, but when I look back, that place and those people grew me- like rich soil, water and sunlight grow a seed into a tree.
It was one of the happiest, most amazing, most expansive times of my entire life.
I started working with the Medicine Wheel back then, and continued to for years after.
When the shutdowns happened last year, I had a very strong hit to go back to the wheel and ask for guidance.
I had been feeling burned out, angry, annoyed and quite frankly over the whole “running a business” thing.
But I didn’t know the cause.
“Show me where the issue is.” I asked
As I walked the wheel in ceremony, it became clear
The answer I was given was quite simply:
At first I thought it meant I needed to get off social media, but that wasn’t totally true….
In 2020 and first half of 2021 I experimented and realized it was the way I’d been taught to obligate my business TO social media.
The way I’d been taught to launch online, market online, post, create content etc etc
So, as you know, I stopped doing all of that. For months I launched nothing and just surrendered to a different process.
A process with more trust, more ease, less work, less time doing anything related to business.
And….it worked. My income didn’t just maintain itself, it went up.
Though I already knew this on some level, The Medicine Wheel really validated and initiated that process.
And so yay! I had created a much more beautiful, simple, satisfying way of business and of life. Where I could still thrive at 6 figures with only 6 hour work weeks.
The second layer of this “social media” message has been coming through more gradually
Like skins that slough off as I keep opening to deeper evolution of myself.
Higher iterations of myself and my soul purposes.
The second layer has been about releasing the fear and shame I’ve had about SHOWING ALL OF ME
On social media
I’ve been doing Land Healings for almost 20 years, for example, and never said a word about it on social media – not openly at least- until like 3 weeks ago
I’ve been a Horse Whisperer since I was like 15, and never mentioned it- at least not openly- on social media until maybe 2 months ago.
I danced around the term “healer” for years, tip toed around “witch” and “clairvoyant” for god knows how long
Because I was terrified of how strangers online would perceive me.
With a line 4 in my profile, it’s easy for me to share in my circle. I thrive on that. With friends of friends or people I already know and trust. In person especially.
But strangers? Ppl I’ve never met?
Even tho I was literally doing healings for clients the whole time I’d called myself a Coach, I stopped mentioning it publically.
I had been attacked wildly, made fun of, challenged, smacked down, bullied and made the center of a modern day equivalent of online witch hunts when I first got on Periscope and openly did energy work and readings for ppl.
Not to mention just growing up in a society that stereotypes anything on the fringe of convention as “crazy.”
And to be honest, it damaged me.
It made me feel like I had to water myself down to keep myself and my business afloat.
This was not the first time I’ve watered myself down- we all have this in our timeline. We’ve all been made to feel stupid, or less than or somehow wrong for who we really are
I’m sure you have to.
But I want to tell you- I don’t know the exact moment- it was a series of unfolded moments, I just started not giving a fuck anymore.
I started understanding my Gene keys deeply and the way I best communicate is through story.
Not marketing or pushing or informing.
Describing what I’m doing. Telling you stories of how and the way things happen.
Much like I’m doing now. 🤍
And when I started communicating these deeply intricate, nuanced, highly spiritual and otherworldly things that way, social media became a beautiful space for me. Less intimidating.
More like a stage for me to sing a deeply personal song.
Again, I was comfortable sharing things in person to the right people. It was only on social media that the issue had lingered.
Like social media was the last stitch in a tapestry of expression that had been weaving itself
And so it has been me “coming out” more and more ON social media about the things I’m naturally doing in my real life that has amplified my evolution, I think.
I’m talking about some seriously weird, woo stuff online lately.
ALL things I’ve always been doing in real life- for yearrrrrrrrrrrrs
But many of y’all never knew about it bc I didn’t tell you here.
It’s been liberating.
And I don’t even know if there is an agenda behind this, other than telling you this story. Sharing the medicine of the Medicine Wheel, and allowing you to see me more.
To see more of me.
And perhaps give some of you reading permission to honor your story and feel safer doing it.
And perhaps to give some of you, too, an invitation to build or strengthen your own relationship with the Wheel
Because there is so much magic waiting for you there.
It is safe to be more of you
And you are not alone on this journey 🤍
