  • The purpose of healing is not to be forever happy; that is impossible. The purpose of healing is to be awake. And to live while you are alive instead of dying while you are alive. Healing is about being broken and whole at the same time.

    To be able, at any moment, to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.

What do you think this is all about?

18th July 2014

Hello Love,

I hope you are enjoying your summer so far! As we settle into the fog and mist in San Francisco, I’m loving getting updates from so many of you on your travels, adventures and summer festivities. So keep them coming!

“The coldest winter I ever experienced was a summer in San Francisco”- Mark Twain

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been deep in contemplation around one of my favorite topics – one that I’ve been teaching about in both Celebrating Abundance: A 40 Day Practice and more recently, my Celebrating Abundance Mastery course.

The heart of both courses is that abundance has nothing to do with how much money or stuff you have, but rather is a reflection of the life you create from your soul and the celebratory gratitude you express towards the blessings in your life.

At the core of this message, the HOW, is asking yourself one simple yet profound question:

How can I be of most service to the world?

And most importantly:

Do I have the courage to dream it and the strength to bring it into the light?

You see, I hear tales almost every day of men and women who have big dreams, who see the need for changed in the world and they have JUST the idea to make it come to life.

But then…crickets.

Nothing.

They keep going on with the job that pays well, or the idea that brings in enough, or the million other reasons to play it safe. To NOT go for it.

They continue on with the status quo and are content with that being enough.

We’re all guilty of it at times in our lives. For years I climbed the corporate ladder getting raises and promotions, and again when I was running a bodywork business. I was doing ‘well’ in the eyes of society and in the measure of prosperity, but something major was always lacking.

Eventually, I couldn’t hold back my voice, could no longer just sprinkle in the topics I wanted to speak about. I had to do what my soul was asking me to do – bring my passion, my love, my service to the world in whatever way I could. The alternative was living a life that looked great, but at its heart was not abundant at all.

You see, EACH of of us has work to do in this world, acts of service to humanity. Things we are each uniquely here on this earth to do. So the question is – what is the act of service your soul is just aching to offer to the world?

Can you have the courage to offer it somewhere, somehow, starting NOW?

Trust that when you do so, you will be showered with blessings you never dreamed possible, simply by offering up more of you to your community, your clients, yourself.

What follows is what true abundance is all about.

“The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.” - Bob Marley

A few weeks ago, I decided to put this theory to the test.

In the Celebrating Abundance Mastery course, I created an entire module around service – all the theory, all the questions to ask. But the morning I was supposed to send it out to these amazing women, I stopped myself. Was more theory REALLY what was needed? More asking and questioning?

I concluded no. It is time to ACT.

So, I issued a challenge: For each participant to offer a form of service to the group in some way. At first, crickets. Confusion.

‘No-way-I-have-anything-special-to-offer-itis’ flew around the group. You know what I’m talking about. But then, after the initial barriers came down and ‘stories’ subsided, something magical happened.

Once the excuses stopped, the wheels started turning on how to be of service and the offers to help were made: the real alchemy began. {Click to Tweet}

Not only did some of the women come out of their shells and offer something they had only ever dreamed of – that certainly was magic in and of itself.

All of a sudden, blocks around money, beauty, the ‘stories’ began to come crumbling down.

Clients were signed. Events scheduled and held to massive success. An influx of dates and new loves. Opportunities of a lifetime. Forgiveness and compassion were finally felt.

And magically, the stress around SUCCESS and MONEY {how much, why not more, how to get more, why me…} became a non-issue.

Something palpable shifted in this simple exploration of ‘How can I be of most service to the world, starting here and now’…. and it came in having the courage to ask the question and actually DO something about it.

With this simple shift in perspective, what I saw was this:

Abundance is ultimately not about money or wealth, but is about how we show up in the world in the spirit of service and celebration. Daily. {Click to Tweet}

In every moment and in every interaction. When we show up, have fun, give our best and listen in our hearts to what another human being needs, then the money we make becomes just the icing on the cake, versus the whole point of the game.

So why isn’t everyone doing this already then? Why aren’t we all just simply being of service to the world in each of our unique ways, every day?

Because you see – it’s scary at first. It’s different. It most likely means change.

And ultimately the real fear isn’t in your idea not working.

No.

The real fear is that it will work. Then all those stories you’ve been telling yourself about how you aren’t good enough, how you’ll never have enough, how life is hard… well, you’ll find out they are really just bullshit stories that feel safer- not because they are safer, but because up until now, they are all you’ve known.

What would happen if you were satisfied in your work, doing something you loved, and no longer spending most of your time worrying about money, wealth, your job, your career… instead you got to use that time and energy on something your heart feels called towards – be it your work, your love life or even just sitting in the sun and just breathing.

Not many people know this, but The Unbridled Life was informally born 18 months ago of this exact same exploration. I had a deep desire to begin talking about integrating the spiritual side of my life with how I showed up in the world, and offered friends free sessions outside of my bodywork practice just to ‘try it out’. I wanted to see what happened when setting the intention to be fully embodied using all the knowledge and practices from my various training in body awareness and business. And the results were pure magic.

I get to spend every day of my life being of service in the world, and constantly pushing my boundaries of what that next level of service is. And I want every woman to have the opportunity to do the same.

As of today, I have ONE (1) space remaining in my Embody Program. In this program, you and I will embark on an odyssey that takes you deep into your soul’s truth, and allows your truth to come through in such a way that you begin to live how you desire! Don’t miss out. Once this spot is full, the only way to work directly with me will be in an Open Session (Awaken Intensive is sold out).

If you are already longing to be of service and feel the calling to become a coach, then I also highly recommend Mentor Masterclass, run by my soul sister Jeannine Yoder. To learn more about this amazing program, for which I am a Celebrity Mentor, please click HERE.

If you have any questions about the Embody Program or Mentor Masterclass, I would love to speak with you – simply email emily@theunbridledlife.com to set up a time!

Fearlessly Loving & Unbridled,
Jen Blackstock
