Scared of sticking out from the crowd?
Do you put yourself down to make other people feel comfortable?
Lacking confidence, especially when introducing yourself others?
Sensitive empaths are often taught to put other people first, and to never brag because it’s rude.
But sometimes being able to celebrate yourself is essential, especially when introducing yourself and your business, to connect deeply and convey confidence to potential clients and partners.
Watch this week’s 11-minute love letter video, part 3 of our 5-week deep dive on living life Unapologetically, to learn exactly how to start celebrating how freakin’ awesome you are, even if you’re not used to it!
"My goes blank when I try to tell people about myself."
It's week three of our five week deep dive.
This is so good. A really juicy topic of living life unapologetically.
Now, I've been getting so much response off of this topic, oh my gosh. To those of you who get the mail, like the real ones, the real love letters, you've been writing me back and saying, "Thank you so much. I love this topic. This is my word for the year, too. Let's do this," or "Here's my word," I'm loving it.
I'm loving it and I'm really curious to hear more from you, so go ahead, email me back.
Write me back. Post me back. Tell me all the things that are coming up for you around living life unapologetically.
Last week, we covered Sorry, Not Sorry, right? Deleting the word "sorry" from our vocabulary.
This week in particular, we're going to cover with the technique of the week is celebrating yourself. Whoa! Isn't it just the most frightening thing that we could possibly talk about? Oh my goodness.
So, maybe you're like me in that when someone asks you, "So tell me about yourself," I especially used to be this way, it was like a blank slate just completely wiped over my mind, and I'm like, "What in the world do I say to this person?" "Tell me about yourself," or "What's new and good," or "Tell me something good," the kind of open-ended questions that a confident person, I'm sure we all know them, who would jump right in with like how great their workout regimen is, or how much money they made, or how in love they are, or how much they love their kids, or this one time when they threw the football all the way across the yard, or something way back in high, or whatever.
Confident people celebrate themselves, but for those of us that are more sensitive naturally, this can be a bit of a dilemma because we think of celebrating ourselves as being egocentric, selfish, self-serving, getting too full of yourself. In Australia we call it tall poppy, right? Cut that poppy down to size so that you look like the rest of the fold.
For us, as empaths, we're also afraid of feeling the uncomfortable emotional sensation, ambient emotional sensation of visibility and judgment, like, "Oh. Well, if I really celebrate myself, I'm going to sense this person judging me and I don't want those cooties in my head. Ew, I can feel their jealousy."
Is this you? Are you afraid of celebrating yourself because of what other people will think? If that's you, sending big love, and that's going to stop this week.
For those of you who work with me privately, you know that I have a group support program called the Visionary Shaman Circle, and in that we practice, I'm going to introduce you to this if you haven't heard of this before, the technique of the week is called a C2R2. In the Shaman Circle, we really work on standing in our brilliance as spiritual entrepreneurs, healers and empaths. We work on standing in our brilliance.
One of the techniques that we use in the Shaman Circle for doing this effectively is called the C2R2. Not the R2D2, to all my Star Wars fans. The C2R2, it's two Cs and two Rs. What are you celebrating, what are you creating? What are you releasing, and what are you requesting?
It's a form to follow in reporting about yourself so that if you get that open-ended question of, "Oh, so tell me what you do," or "Tell me about yourself," say, "Okay. Well, I'm celebrating having come off my first two weeks of personal vacation. I'm really grateful for that. I'm creating more sacred space to be with my loved ones. Lately, I've been releasing fear around taking risks in my business, but what I'm requesting right now more than ever, from a source, from the universe, or maybe even from you is more support on how to make that happen."
Boom! All of a sudden, I just ran right through the format of a C2R2: what are you celebrating, what are you creating, what are you releasing, what are you requesting? There's no fifth thing.
So you run right through that, and when you get the hang of it, you'll be able to celebrate yourself authentically and with a sense of ease, it'll roll right off of you. But it starts with celebrating yourself because guess what? You're really freaking awesome! Has anyone told you that lately? You are really awesome. You do amazing things for everybody: for your boss, for your clients, for your family, for your kids, for so many people.
Know this: You are freakin’ awesome! And it’s time you started celebrating YOURSELF. #inspiration #entrepreneur @SenseiWhitfield
If you were to sit down and write all of the things that you are celebrating that you've accomplished let's just say within the last week, you would have a fit. In fact, that is this week's homework.
I'm hearing the Oracle cards calling in the energy as the action step for the week comes forward. Sit down, even if you can't do a complete C2R2, just write a list of at least ten things that you are celebrating you've accomplished within the last week. If you can't come up within the last week, try the last three months or six months, maybe even a year.
Really soak that in, that you are a powerful being. You are a powerful being. Source knows that about you. We're continuing with daily guidance from the Angels. Let's see. Angels, what do you have to tell our tribe? This is one of the many decks here, always open to receiving donations of additional Oracle card decks.
Angels, what do we need to know right now about celebrating ourselves to live an unapologetic life? Oh, hello. Yes! Release and surrender. This is so perfect.
"We shower you with blessings of our radiant love. Open your arms and release the challenges that you've held tightly gripped within your hands. Open your hands, arms and heart to our love and assistance." This is where we're going to leave off for the week. I'm getting de ja vu around this card. This is kind of interesting. Part of celebrating yourself is letting go of being small, letting go, surrendering the idea that the smaller you are the safer you will feel, or the less brilliant you are the better other people will feel. There's so much love inside of you, for you, coming from your source, coming from spirit, but coming from yourself, like a garden hose.
Up until now, you may have pinched that off, and that'll show up in different areas of your life, being pinched off financially, pinched off neurologically, pinched off romantically, pinched off socially, however you say. But if only just for now, we're going to release and surrender that pinched part of our energy to really open up and celebrate. You can do this. You can do this.
Send me an email back, and comment below what's your list of ten things, the ten things that you're going to celebrate that you've accomplished about yourself.
For all my Visionary Shamans, if you want to do a full-on C2R2, go ahead and post it below, send me an email back. By the way, if this speaks to you, join us in the Master Manifester Challenge. I'll put a link, and that's my five-day Facebook challenge. I know another one is coming up soon, whenever you're watching this.
We do them periodically where we will be doing C2R2s every single day and getting your vibrations super high, training you how to do that so that you can live life unapologetically and abundantly. So I will see you next week for week four of five. See you then. Bye!
Just for Today...
Make it a point to acknowledge and celebrate at least 10 things you’ve accomplished.
Get a pen and pad and write them out: from the last week, quarter or even year.
Notice how you feel at that moment - you're already healing!
SHARE THIS! You’d be surprised how many people you know right now are in desperate need of healing and could use this information to change their life. If you can read this, you know someone who needs this Love Letter!
