To be able to RISE up toward the sky, often we have to sink our roots more deeply into the earth.
If you have practiced yoga, you’ve likely heard the term “root to rise”. The idea is that, once your foundation is planted, only then can you tend to the next movement. Pressing down into the foundation not only roots it in place but also activates the muscles above it allowing the body – or the intention – to RISE.
This year, I am using this intention to RISE above. As you may know, my tagline has been “Rise Above Noise” – that is, in this noisy, busy world, dig deep (root) into your strengths and mission to SHOW UP in the world with integrity and authenticity. These are the ideas we share in the “Rise Above the Noise” Facebook Group. (Join us)
Although I am in business as a digital marketing guide, I still find it a personal challenge to “show up”, to put my face, my live self on digital platforms. My introvert nature tends to try to keep me safe in ‘being humble’ or ‘show up small’. (Some of you know that I use my white eyeglasses as power tools to help me with that struggle.)
The intention – RISE – is to remind me that when I am, indeed, rooted in my core values, it is my obligation to RISE – to get seen and be heard so that I can reach and serve the heart-centered entrepreneurs who are ready to themselves RISE. These light-workers, energy healers, yoga instructors will be changing lives with the work they do. When I guide them to reach those who they are meant to serve with integrity (and tools and strategies, of course), I am RISING toward my own legacy.
Ok…. Honestly, you guys…… Showing up is not just an intention for me. It’s actually a challenge….Your feedback and validation would be so welcome to support my inner introvert.
