You know that idea…

the one that’s been calling to your soul…

for a while… 

Maybe you attended a women’s circle and now feel a strong pull and desire to lead circles of your own. 

Or 

You’ve healed something HUGE and want to share it with the world through a workshop.

Or 

You studied Astrology and have been reading birth charts for free but there’s a part of you wondering if this could be an awesome side gig or maybe even a business?!? 🤔

Or 

Maybe you’re ready to start your soul business.

I SEE YOU. 

I FUCKING SEE YOU SO HARD. 

This idea is the Magick and medicine the world needs and it landed with ✨YOU✨ for a reason! 

AND…

YOU’RE. NOT. TAKING. ACTION. 

If you were taking action the above sentences would have read … I have this idea and I DID THE DAMN THING!

The idea wouldn’t be sitting on the shelf of resistance collecting dust. Calling to you from time to time, “Hey, I’m still here!”

Look, resistance is normal! 

And today we’re going to have an honest conversation about why you’re not taking action which I hope will allow you to meet your resistance with a bit more compassion. 


There are 4 reasons I see all of the time (and have experienced)


✨ Perfectionism ✨

Branding has to be perfect. Copy has to be perfect. Offer has to be perfect. EVERY SINGLE DETAIL HAS TO BE PERFECTION. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. 

While there is something to be said for putting out quality content, perfectionism often has us hyper focused on details that just aren’t that important like business cards, fonts, branding, colors, websites, etc. (Hot Tip –  get clients first and then focus on this stuff). 

The desire for perfectionism will also often lead to feeling paralyzed, or thinking “If it’s not perfect then I’m not good enough”… which leads to the next reason…

✨ Not feeling worthy or enough ✨

Oh, the “I’m not worthy” or “I’m not enough” narrative. This is a doozy and honestly I still come up against it from time to time. 

I believe this is a collective wound women share. Many light & soul workers were persecuted in past lives because of their gifts – this is often called the Witches Wound. Persecuted for our gifts in past lives can often leave us feeling not worthy of honoring our gifts in this lifetime. When we begin to do our soul work these past life wounds surface. 

✨ The imposter syndrome ✨

Ways this can show up: 

“Who am I to create this?”

“So and so and does this so I can’t do it too”

“No one will show up or buy from me”

“I need more training” 

“I need more healing” 

Or feeling and thinking you’re a fraud. 

✨ The fear of being seen / rejected / misunderstood 

This one can often stem from our family dynamics and the desire to be accepted (loved) by society. We all desire a safe place where we belong and when we go against the grain of what is acceptable by society we risk being ostracized. This one can be especially triggering to the abandonment wound. 

Do any of these stand out to you? 

Note: our wounds are complex and this is a brief generalized description based on how I’ve experienced them, along with many of my clients, but it’s not black and white. 

I’m not here to fix you and get rid of your resistance. You’re not broken. I’m here to teach you how to bring it along in the creation process. It’ll still be in the car, but it will no longer be in the driver’s seat 😝

In my signature group coaching program 🔥 DO THE DAMN THING 🔥 there is a whole module devoted to this. The program starts in January and the waitlist will open soon. 

Just imagine what would be possible in your life if you started 2022 befriending your resistance and taking action on that soul project you’ve been putting off. 

I truly believe the world will change when more women step into their power and follow their soul calling. This is my why and why I’m deeply devoted to your rising. 

Xo,

Em
