Finding Purpose After Motherhood

Finding Purpose After Motherhood

Have you ever wondered what your purpose is? Have you seemed to lose your way after motherhood? Or maybe your goals have changed since becoming a mom.

I remember at such a young age, feeling a conflict in my heart on choosing between being a stay at home mom and a career mom. I remember wanting both. In today’s society, it can be difficult to live off of a single income and have the option of not working as a mother. But with modern conveniences, like the internet and social media, we can have the best of both worlds.

There are a lot of options out there to work from home, flex time or being your own boss.

In this episode, I chat with Jenny Beecher, farm wife and mom of three kids. She is a clarity coach for moms trying to find balance between business and living a fulfilling life at home.

In this interview, we talk about:

  • The transition of your place in the workplace to finding your purpose inside and outside of motherhood.
  • Learning to shatter generational and societal programming to what it means to be a mom.
  • Finding your own way and going your own way.

How to Use Your Shadow Self to Heal and Grow

How to Use Your Shadow Self to Heal and Grow

Have you ever had someone do something or say something that caused such negative feelings – like anger, rage, bitterness, resentment or anxiety?

For context of this article, a trigger can refer to the experience of having an emotional reaction to some type of disturbing content someone says or does.

One year ago, I registered for a local fitness bootcamp and I was so excited. After working my body to the bone, I had allowed my own self care and workouts to slip. I was running a business, homeschooling 2 kids and had a 1 year old.  I needed to get my body back in shape.

And so, guess what happened? So I felt super connected to the trainer. I loved his energy.

At first, he didn’t even want to let me into his program, for fear of me stealing his program – as my own. He admitted he had had other personal trainers join his bootcamp and go work in other gyms, stealing his program, training clients HIS WAY.

 

First of all – let’s get this out of the way.

  1. No one can be you. Even if someone steals your ideas, programs, content, they cannot duplicate you energy.
  2. There are no new ideas. His way of working out and and his way of training clients – I assure you he didn’t created it.

After a few weeks of being a paying customer, he blocked me from his Facebook. I was still going to his bootcamp and I had major convictions with this. So one of my shadows is I want to be loved by everyone.

 

The shadow is the “dark side” of our personality because it consists chiefly of primitive, negative human emotions and impulses like rage, envy, greed, selfishness, desire, and the striving for power.

I am a Leo sun. And if you don’t know about Leo’s, Leo’s love to own the spotlight. They are very creative. They’re very entrepreneurial and  they’re very generous, but they also love to get love right back. And so when I was blocked, he blocked me from his personal Facebook page, I thought – “wow, what did I do?” I’m a paying customer. And he has me blocked. So one of the things, one of the shadow parts of Leo is deep down, they want to be loved by everyone and deep, deep down they secretly don’t feel lovable at all. Alternatively, he was also a Leo and Leos have big pride, big egos and have a hard time sharing the spotlight with others.

So the reason why this trainer didn’t let me into his programs was because, previously,  I was a weight loss coach. And here I was hiring a trainer. I’m trying to lose weight myself, get my body back in shape. And he had mentioned that he had allowed several other personal trainers into his program and they copied from him. They stole his program and tried to sell it on their own. And he was afraid I was going to do the same.

So here’s the thing: that wasn’t my issue. I have never done that. He had no reason to believe that I was going to do that. However, he put his past experiences with other people onto me, and that was not my issue. That was his issue to deal with. However, anything you’re dealing with, it comes up for a reason and it’s coming up to be healed. So anything that’s triggering you, like I was triggered that this person who I valued, I valued enough to pay him; blocked me from seeing any of his personal posts, because he thought I was going to steal from him.

And that hurt my ego.

So, what can you do if you’re feeling triggered and how can you heal it?

This is your shadow self showing up.

There are certain things we associate from being good parts of our personality and we celebrate it. There are other parts of our personality that we associate with being bad, shameful and don’t want others to see (sometimes we don’t even want to admit it is there).

However, you can use your shadow self for healing. If you notice your triggers by things you’re judging people on, things you feel judged from other people, anything that pulls out anger and deep, dark emotion, shame, guilt, any of these lower vibration emotions. That’s what’s triggering you, and you want to get curious on why. Why is this triggering me? And what can I learn from it?

I love to use my astrological birth chart to help me heal my triggers. So one of the things you can do, is you can look to your opposite side across the zodiac wheel.

So I am a Leo, I’m ruled by the sun. However, the opposite sign of me is Aquarius. Leo and Aquarius are polar opposites and you can look to that sign to help embody different parts of you that you want to heal. So, if I want to heal my issue with not being liked, not being loved by everyone and really feeling unlovable, I can look to Aquarius, because what does Aquarius do? They are the rebel of the zodiac and they do not care who likes them, who doesn’t like them. And they own it. They own how they’re different. They own their uniqueness and they can own it.

So wherever you are, whatever sign you have in your chart, you have a polar opposite.

Opposite Signs:

Cancer/Capricorn
Taurus/Scorpio
Aries/Libra
Gemini/Sagittarius
Leo/Aquarius
Pisces/Virgo.

But you were made perfect as you are. There are light and dark parts of every sign, every person, every characteristic.

There will always be someone that doesn’t get you. There will always be people who don’t understand you or feel triggered by your energy.

This is there triggers and they can deal with those.

Your job is to be you and learn to heal from your own triggers.

So, I think right now in this online space, we’re still waiting on the election results in the US. A lot of people are triggered right now. A lot of people aren’t happy with, you know, maybe what someone is posting, someone is sharing their opinions and their beliefs, and that can leave us triggered, but whatever you’re feeling triggered, you can learn from it.

I put together a list of the zodiac signs and their shadow traits that may show up. Grab it here.

Finding Your Life Path and How to Know If You Are On Track

Finding Your Life Path and How to Know If You Are On Track

How do you know if you’re on your life path? How do you know if you’re not on the correct path? How do you know if you’re going in the right direction?

What the heck am I doing? Where should I take this thing?

This was my prayer, a few years ago. I had successfully gotten my own life turned around, dropped 36 pounds and was helping others get their own healthy habits in order. AND I loved it! But something was missing. And I didn’t quite know what it was. But I was open to a higher power directing me to it.

And I truly believe when we ask the right questions and we are open to getting some answers, the answers will be given to us.

In 2016, I took a course on Business by the Moon. I was like a fish out of water. It was a course on the cycles of the moon, manifesting and harnessing the power of moon, for your business. As I started learning about the moon, I also was learning about astrology and how it affects our energy.

What a U-turn or fork in the road I had found! I thought I was learning about manifesting and suddenly I went down the rabbit hole of finding my natal chart, learning more about myself, my energy and how I best work. I was so intrigued! I have been a personality test junkie for a few years, but this took things to the next level.

If you are new to the world of astrology or not really understanding it, it can help you learn more about yourself, your personality, what you really are here to share with the world. And I have been exploring within my own astrological birth chart. It’s been so impactful for me that now I want to share it with others.

As I learned about my own natal birth chart, I couldn’t unlearn the things I had discovered. Finally, I felt understood, heard and seen for who I am. From a personal development standpoint, your natal birth chart holds so many answers on your biggest challenges and how to overcome them.

From a career perspective, you were born with gifts that not everyone else has. And it is your job to share those gifts with the world.  There are certain things that you can do better than anyone else can do them. And you were given those gifts for a reason. But there was a time I didn’t fully understand my own abilities. Skills are things you can learn but talent and natural gifts are things you are just born with.

More specifically, the past couple years I made some business decisions that were not in full alignment with my own life path and those decisions did not end well. Because – they were out of alignment of my own truth and out of alignment with my life. Read more about getting a full reading.

Some signs and symptoms if you are or are not on your life path

Depression or Anxiety

Depression is actually living in the past. So if you are living in the past, you’re always drudging up, what I could have done differently, what should had happened differently. Replaying old stories of what could have been is doing nothing but bringing you down, wallowing in guilt and shame – one of the lowest frequencies and the furthest from love, peace and joy.

Anxiety is living in the future. If you are always pressed upon what is going to happen tomorrow, what is going to happen next month? And you’re not present in the here and now, and that is not good either. Learning to be present in the moment – not wallowing in the past and not feeling the pressure of the future – can help you identify and be self aware of the things you need to focus on.  You will get downloads, your intuition will be more activated. If you are in depression or you’re in anxiety, you can’t hear those messages that are trying to come through. Instead of being worried about the future or depressed about the past – what is one way you can move forward to where you want to go?

Physical, Mental, Emotional Energy

Do you wake up with energy? Are you excited to go to work? Are you excited to live out your daily life? If you are dreading, who you’re associating with, going to work every day, who you’re spending your time around. This is a signal that something has to change. And this is, those messages, those body nudges, like that gut feeling, the butterflies in your stomach, or the knots in your stomach. Those are all signals that you need to pay attention to. When are you getting those and why? And when you can start to ask those deeper questions, you’ll start to recognize, what in your life needs to change. You can read about how misalignment showed up in my life here.

Any Health Complications

Health problems are manifested in the physical body, but it starts elsewhere. Whenever we are not living our life in alignment for our soul purpose, our true path, our divine mission, the body knows our truth. The body knows when we are not living to our highest potential. It often sends signals (small gut nudges) but if we don’t listen to the messages, then it can manifest into health problems, whether that be burnout, adrenal fatigue, cancer, or autoimmune diseases. If you are living your life, according to your life path, and according to what your heart wants you can more easily find joy, peace and love in your daily life. Not to say that life will be all rainbows and butterflies but you can still find contentment – even in hard times. The heart, it knows your divine mission. It knows where you’re supposed to go. But if you’re not listening and you’re not taking that direction that it’s trying to give you it can manifest in the physical body. So if you have any physical illnesses, that’s something to look into, definitely take care of those illnesses. But also what is the root problem that that is coming from?

How do you know if you are on your life path?

You have energy in the morning. You’ll be excited about what you’re doing. You’ll be excited about who you’re associating with and where you’re going. You will have vibrant health. You will actually want to eat healthy. You actually want to go work out. You feel good on the inside and you want to continue feeling good on inside. But a lot of times when we’re emotionally eating, when we’re stress eating, when we’re binge drinking, that is a deeper issue we need to look at. Oftentimes, it’s something that we’re trying to avoid or pain we are wishing would go away. And so we’re using food or alcohol or drugs or other vices to fill that void. But if we can take those away and really ask ourselves, what is it that I truly want? If we are willing to sit with the pain, look at the hard places in our life and explore the root problem, there can be so many blessings in that.

 

Are you wanting to explore some of these deeper questions in your own life? Are you interested to see if you are on your own life path and how you can better align to your own truth? These are questions we explore in my life path astrology sessions. We pull up your natal birth chart, which is like a snapshot of how the stars and the planets were aligned the moment you were born. And they can have some impact on your personality, your motivation, things that get you excited, your passions. We can bring some insight looking at your astrological birth chart. Learn how to run your own astrological birth chart here.
