Sometimes people have this flawed idea that I have it together …



Sometimes people have this flawed idea that I have it together … I certainly tried to!

It was exhausting because I still thought I had to be perfect to be loved.

Weird.

I was chasing love, or maybe I was confusing love with acceptance. That’s just one major personal shift that happened on my TEDx journey!

If ever there was a time in my life when I saw that perfection is overrated, it was in creating, practicing and delivering my TEDx Talk. My passion for humanity is so much more important than how it looked in the process – what a journey!

I’m so grateful to my coach, Barrie Barton, who created the event. I really, really didn’t want to memorize my talk. If you know me, you’ll know I’m so in the flow with what’s happening in the moment, seeing how I can assist that flow even more. Barrie just kept on helping me see what was possible.

The only way I was able to appreciate and learn from this journey was to know that my heart had something to say about this human journey … that we’re not alone … that it’s not a hopeless time. We’re either contributing to the struggles in the world with an attitude of “every person for themselves” or we’re being dreamt by something within our hearts without giving our power away to those who seem to have it.

What inspired the TEDX Talk is that my heart questioned why so many are waiting for somebody else to change things?

I felt so incredibly vulnerable in this journey and was honored to learn something new, and play with new people who were also feeling the same, that are now soul family.

I’m also so grateful to have watched the talk again just yesterday. My perfectionist mind had much to say, but I let my eyes see and hear through my heart. I felt proud and humbled that I answered the very question that I asked others to pose of themselves during my talk (you’ll see).

This talk is about being the love that I feel within, and my passion for our freedom to create the world we imagine for ourselves and everyone.

I truly hope you’ll feel that when you watch. Honestly, I hope that it either changes and inspires you, or helps you feel the empowerment of being part of a movement, instead of being alone.

After you’ve watched it, if you feel inspired to move heaven and earth with me, consider:

1. Sharing the TEDX with friends and family in an email, and on social media with the hashtag #movementofone and your heartfelt message for them

2. Please like and comment on the video. It helps us to get to the TED Mainstage … imagine the difference this talk can make from there!

3. Every day, in every interaction, remember that your love, engagement, and compassion really matter … be an earth angel.

Please make sure you tag me in your social media posts so I can thank you!

Isn’t it time for us to transcend waiting for visible leaders, and just do what we know is possible ourselves, together?

What would be possible if you didn’t need to get it right, look good, or be perfect…and then you just let your heart lead? Can’t wait to hear!

Love you, it’s time!

With love,
Jennifer

PS – My favorite thing was talking to my parents about how many people they’d shared it with … and how excited, inspired, and proud they were … squishy and blessed … sigh.

I spent a good portion of my childhood trying to be enough.

Worthiness. I spent a good portion of my childhood trying to be enough.

How about you?

Every time you seek to prove your worth, you are coming from a place that presumes that you’re somehow lacking.

You were literally an etheric metaphysical being, who poured into a body in perfect timing. You are a meat suit flying through space at 55,000 miles per hour while miraculously housing a soul and spirit. You witness sunsets, mountain tops, births, deaths. You breathe the air that trillions of trees breathe out just for you!

Fears and freedom

Fears and freedom

The other morning, as I was pulling out an old plant that took up a lot of room and was on its way out, I heard the bell from the Baptist church down the road, at the same time as I caught a glimpse of the peonies I was planting to replace the old bush.

I love peonies. They remind me of Canada and my front yard. They take me to an emotional home place. That’s why I’m planting them. I keep imagining seeing the peonies while I’m sitting on my front porch.

At the gathering place down the road, the minister is impassioned and talks very loudly. Sometimes, he’s incredibly inspiring and I just stand outside on the road and listen, while at others when he talks about the challenging aspects of humanity, there’s fear within the church. I speak at many churches, so this isn’t about making church wrong, but rather the idea that most of humanity spends time finger-pointing.

My heart is so full of blessings…

After a rich and vibrant time in the Embodiment Workshop in Asheville, my heart is so full of blessings.

I’m so grateful for the participants, the TWA Team, and so incredibly blessed to have opulence everywhere around me in my garden. Not only for the lettuce, but the seeds for new lettuce. It’s truly overflowing …

I’m grateful for all the shifts and clarity that happened for both myself, and collectively, and wanted to share something with you…
