I'm sure I'm not the only one who has struggled with balancing logic and rationale with energy and spirituality. So what's my advice for resolving the conflict between the different parts of your life? Well, you embrace that the world isn't black and white. It's about 3,472,198 shades of gray, and you get to pick the perfect one for you.
Yep, you can become a part-time hippie and own it.
Can it be terrifying to step into who you really are? Heck yes! It certainly wasn't easy for me to go from a super-corporate job to running Hidden Hippie, a business based on healing crystals. But was it worth it? Wooooow man, YES.
The moment I stepped into owning what felt right for me is the moment the magic really started to happen. Resistance floated away; doors I didn't even know existed opened up; life started to flow. Inbound press inquiries? Sure. Collaborations with big names? Uh-huh. Invitations to speak at exclusive events? Yes. And most importantly, my stress levels plummeted, my health improved, and I felt a sense of calm I hadn't experienced in years. Is it all a piece of cake? No, but being my authentic self makes it easier to navigate.
In short, it's OK to change. The person you were five years ago likely isn't the same person you are today. Nor will you be the same person in 10 years. And that's a good thing because it means you've grown. If someone had told me even 12 months ago that I'd be hiding crystals in bras and ponytails, I'd have laughed and seriously questioned their sanity. But now, I wouldn't change it for the world.
