There seems to me to be a lot of amazing, inspiring people in the world today. I often wonder how some people, as the one individual Human Being that they are, manage to accomplish so much and create so much change in one lifetime. Of course they don't do it all alone, but they hold the big vision and kickstart the movement.
Something I heard recently that is sticking with me is this: "When your vision becomes stronger than your personal comfort, then you will create the outcomes you desire". So the vision first needs to be very clear, then the drive behind the vision can passionately grow. Combine that with a willingness to move out of one's comfort zone and really 'go for it' despite all the blocks and challenges that will appear, and you have a recipe for transformation. Transforming yourself, transforming your community, transforming the world!
Some of the women who have inspired me and made big contributions in the Conscious Birth field include Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova (my Birth Into Being teacher and mentor), Debra Pascali-Bonaro (from Orgasmic Birth), Ina May Gaskin (midwife from 'the Farm') and Ibu Robin Lim (midwife and founder of Buhmi Sehat foundation). Starting at grass roots level and creating big movements, these women have dedicated their lives in service to the greater good and I'm sure each has been pushed out of their comfort zone many times over.
I am aspiring to get out of my comfort zone more and more these days, so I too can offer more goodness to the world. What are you up to?
And as always, remember this ~ You are loved, you are worthy and you are so welcome here.
Blessings and Blissings,
Elena serves humanity through her teachings, writings, films (Birth As We Know It) and workshops and has become 'spiritual midwife' to thousands all over the world. She'll be giving her final workshop this year in November in Germany before 'retiring' to write her long awaited books. Details here...
