TRCS Episode 9: Pulling Back the Curtain and Illuminating | A peek into my past. A reminder that you, too, can change.
Listen in if you'd like
Oh hay there, 2017. How you doin'. I actually recorded another episode and had it ready to go for this first week back, but something happened. I was struck by such inspiration over the weekend I ended up filming one of my most in-depth and longer formats of The Rachel Camfield Show to date.
The truth is I am on a pursuit to be awakened by the people put on my path. I am aware that I can choose to keep following more people or, I can unite with the purpose and mission of a few and deeply follow and support their work.
A handful of my biggest inspirations and influencers who's work I intimately follow are Kate Northrup, Dr. Christiane Northrup (Kate's mom), Laurel Holland, Danielle LaPorte, Amber Lilyestrom, and now, Lara Casey. I was actually led to Lara through Amber. Funny how that works. And then the amazing Maghon Taylor mentioned her on our road trip earlier this year and a ping later in the summer resulted in me attending Making Things Happen as I highlighted last week.
I have now joined the tribe of Power Sheets lovers and just finished Lara's book, Make It Happen. (Doesn't it feel like sparkles when you connect so deeply with a new soul? Highly recommend the Power Sheets, by the way.)
In the past, I maybe would have tried to arrange my "Lara fan club" posts more strategically - something different parting them from being nestled up next to each other on my blog page. But y'all, being strategic is exhausting, and this sister ain't got time for that. You also deserve my best and my most truthful experience of the faith-filled steps I am taking, so here I go.
In today's episode, I am sharing a peek into my past and covering some of the bold leaps of faith along the way that bring me to where my feet are presently. That is working from home, being married to my handsome best friend and biggest cheerleader, owning my own businesses, fully living the version of life I had dreamed of from so long ago, experiencing intimate and life-giving friendships, and continuing to surrender and trust about every other moment.
Lara so beautifully invited me to share my heart, my truth, and my past, when she exposed hers. Isn't that how we all transform?
When we get honest about where we are, where we have been, and where we want to go, suddenly there are no secrets and the world is able to come in and love you, support your highest vision, and pray for your path.
I am honored to create and hold sacred space like this when I'm consulting and coaching, reading my writing to you, or soaking in a teacup of chai from across the table on my favorite kind of date.
I hope that my words give you hope, that my path reaffirms you are doing the best you can with what you have, and that there is always room for you to step into the light of your life in the most unburdened and gentle way. The choice is all of ours and the call is within. Let's jump into today's show!
A loving heads up:
I discuss some painful parts of my past that may be uncomfortable to hear. Also, sharing the past can be tricky. It is always my utmost hope that speaking my truth does not cause harm to others.
