A visionary leader is not a manager

Picture Credits – Jennie Selda

A visionary leader sees the possibility for change, feels a passion for a different future, and is called to something more than currently exists. They’re okay with not only shaking their own internal tree, but also those of others, creating fresh evolutionary pathways for themselves, and those around them.

In contrast, a manager takes what is, making the existing situation work and perhaps even improving it, if they’re good. A manager loves to organize, more than push the envelope of what is acceptable to society.

Neither one is better than the other because society needs both systems for success.

The problem is that most goal-based systems make a visionary feel confined, controlled and uninspired. Do you know anyone designing systems to support visionaries? I don’t!

Characteristically, intuitive visionary leaders:

1. Are sensitive;
2. Have an built-in incongruency meter – a ‘BS meter – when it comes to relationships and plans; and
3. Often felt misunderstood when they were little.

A natural manager on the other hand:

1. Is methodical;
2. Values harmony above all else; and
3. Knows how to keep to, and loves, keeping the flow going.

Without a system that supports both of them there is always tension between them. If you try to do both, you’ll find yourself drawn to one way of being and less energized by the other.

I’d love to hear whether youre a visionary or a natural manager – do let me know.

Can’t wait to hear!

With love,



Undistinguished ways of being…

Undistinguished ways of being…

Do you have unidentified embodied habits that drive the bus of your life?

Until we understand what it is to embody our way of operating in alignment with the laws of life, life is just a series of fix-it actions.

Embodied old, automatic operating systems disappear when the entire operating system is aligned with thriving. So, instead of fixing what doesn’t work, we actually come to a life frequency more aligned with how consciousness works. Those old patterns simply cannot exist anymore as they don’t match our new way of plugging into life.

A recent incident with my family is a great example. There are clues how to permanently get out of doing ‘the work’ of fixing our protective identities, or working so hard on repatterning.

Righteousness in yourself and others

Righteousness in yourself and others

Righteousness in yourself and others. What does that even really mean?

It’s all over the media and throughout the political spectrum and, as a result, it is probably prevalent in some of your social circles with friends and family.

Where does it come from? Why do we get that way? How do we define it? What frees us from the need to react to it or use righteousness?

The subject of righteousness has come up for me several times in the last couple of months. I was speaking with one of my clients and we could both see so many angles on righteousness. Sometimes I can get that way, but I catch myself because it really doesn’t feel good. It also isn’t an inclusive way of speaking, and blocks fluid shifts. If you are all about making fluid shifts … well, you know.

Why ‘doing what is presenting’ is so important

Why ‘doing what is presenting’ is so important

The following question was posted by Trudy, one of our Flight School graduates, in our Agents of Awakening Community and I felt it would assist to share my reply in this week’s inspiration in case you missed it, or you’ve not yet joined us there … (what are you waiting for?) 😉

Trudy’s Question: “When do you know to take the lead, knowing what you know, and observing unfolding events as a neutral party?”

The concept that is most important in answering this question well is ‘DOING WHAT PRESENTS’. It’s actually the most simple of concepts, and yet it’s foreign to us as we’re so prone to running around in unconscious survival mode. Kids, groceries, goals, oil changes, banking, relationship reactions, fears about the world or the country, and so on.
