Spiritual Companions: Who Are Your Believing Eyes?

Namaste Sweet Friends,

'You are the average of the 5 people you hang around.' ~ Jim Rohn

I had the incredible honor of attending Archangel Academy at the end of January. This group was founded by one of the most extraordinary men I have ever met, Giovanni Marsico. This Archangel tribe is a group of social entrepreneurs all coming together for the purpose of supporting one another. We collaborate in order to get our messages out, and to create positive change on great levels in this world. I had no idea what to expect in showing up for this two day event. I felt in every cell of my body not only that I was supposed to be there, but that my life would never be the same. That feeling was validated the first 30 minutes into the event.

Up until this point in my life, I have never been in a room with 90 plus other positive, ambitious, confident leaders, who all felt they had a purpose to share and would do anything to share it. Their messages were delivered with such warmth, wisdom, and love, and their true purpose in sharing was to help others shine. I felt a sense of returning home.

I speak frequently about the importance of having believing eyes in your life, people who see your Spirit, beyond your personality, your past, your career, and see you in all of your authentic gloriousness. Again... 90 plus people???!! WHA?? I mean, seriously?! Yep, seriously.

I truly believe that having 'believing eyes' surrounding you is one of the most important things in life. People who you feel lifted, seen, held, and inspired by. As well as people who will call you out on your shit (kindly) when you are not in alignment with your truth.

Another name I use for this is a Spiritual Companion. A Spiritual Companion is a friend who is not going to jump in your story when the shit hits the fan. Instead, they are going to stand by your side, hold your hand, and allow you to feel your way through it in your time, holding space for you as you process. 

Take a moment to watch your OT Coaching Tune-Up on what exactly believing eyes and spiritual companions are.

HOME PLAY:

*How true is the statement, 'You are the average of the 5 people you hang around' to you? Pay attention to how that feels for your body. What are your thoughts around that statement? 

*Give yourself some time, perhaps even journal, and write out the times in which you have had a person or people in your life who really supported you. Who saw you beyond the things you do in life, and appreciated the natural gifts you have to offer the world. How does that feel?

*Take an honest assessment: Write out your top values that are important to you within friendships. Then look at your closest friends and rate them on a scale of 1-10 of where they stand on that scale. Some examples of values might be: communication, fun, honesty. This is not to judge or belittle your friends, it is an opportunity to really see if you are living congruently with your truth and values.


The one thing in life that is constant is change.

As we change, and especially as we become more conscious, we may notice that certain people fall away. This is not always comfortable and can often leave us feeling guilt, shameful, and even like we are failures. This does not have to be the case. This is the natural ebb and flow of life. Many of us were not taught how to allow this organic and inevitable experience to occur in our lives, however, it is always happening.

Feel a little stuck and even alone? That is so common! I am here for you! 

Shoot me an email to set up a 20 minute consult if you would like support as you transition through your life and your relationships change.

You are beautiful! Know that!! 

Live from your Spirit, love your life,
Valerie
