There are ways of seeing the world that create stress - separation, competition, and scarcity. They are stressful because when we believe that we are separate and need to fight for scarce resources to survive we feel small and alone and we either shrink and hide or waste energy puffing ourselves up.
When we undertake grant writing from these places it constricts our breathing and puts us in fight or flight mode. Data shows the negative impact of this way of being on our physical bodies not to to mention our emotional bodies.
That can be fine for a short while but over time it simply depletes our vitality and stresses you out.
The truth is that we are not alone, nor separate, nor live in a world of scarce resources. And our souls know this deep within even when our outer being is freaking out. But, in any moment, we can reconnect with that inner wisdom that rests in wholeness, grace and love. Much of my work is helping my clients to ground themselves in this place so that they feel comfortable standing in the rightness of their being without a need to hide or grandstand - to be someone who, through their work, stands rooted and free for a world that values justice and love.
