Because I put myself out into the public space as an expert in Animal Communication, people have a tendency to put me on a pedestal – and it’s a pedestal I neither deserve or want.
To counter being put on that pedestal, I make sure people know that I’m a big goofball, with a huge love of animals, who is figuring this stuff out as I go. And I’ve found that by being very clear about who I really am (a completely imperfect being), I’m actually able to do more, be more, and go further – and when I make my inevitable mistakes and missteps, it’s OK, because I’ve made it clear, I’m making it up as I move forward.
I feel like this has worked well for me, but this philosophy of transparency isn’t something that everyone naturally follows.
I have one particular client whom I see as incredibly accomplished – she blows me away with her intuition, the depth of her knowledge, her skills, her ability to see into another person and more! And she puts that out to the world in a very professional way. And yet, because she sees herself on the inside as incomplete, she doesn’t allow herself to look like she doesn’t know something (what a lot of work!).
In my classes, I’m always teaching the students about transparency. If you’re unsure of what you’re getting, just say that! If you’re unclear whether information is from you or the animal, be direct and let the person know. Sharing what is REALLY going on inside you is the key here!
The difference between what you put out to the world and what you feel on the inside is an important thing to look at. I work with many people who hold a big disconnect there – showing the world, “Hey, everything is awesome!” when on the inside they’re scared. Or putting out that they’re happy with their life, when really they feel a longing or an emptiness.
For me, one of my biggest FEARS right now is that my new book, Animal Lessons, isn’t going to do well with pre-orders on Amazon (pre-orders as HUGE for being able to become a bestseller) and yet, I know so many people think “Oh, she’s all set!” But, you know what? I’m totally scared (despite what my intuition says!).
Anyway, how transparent can you be today? Only you expect so much of yourself. The world doesn’t expect you to be perfect – the world just expects you to be YOU.
Come share your own transparency with others!
Love and Light,
