Mushrooms and Your Past
Have you ever looked back at your past and were totally ashamed or embarrassed by who you used to be?
It is interesting, and a bit humbling, how we can look back and realize we had it completely wrong. I just finished reading a fascinating book about fungi and the mycelium network called "The Entangled Life." Growing up, fungi or mushrooms were just these gross little things growing up out of the dirt. However, they operate as a massive network, like an underground nervous system with vast capabilities... and the more we learn, the more applications we see for how they can help heal and sustain the world.
I had NO idea of how truly special and important mycelium was. In the same way, most of us don't realize how important and unique our personal story is.
A lot of us look back on our past and say, "I'm so glad I'm different now. I hated who I was, and I don't ever want to look back." So, we stay in motion and look forward, so we don't have to deal with it.
Well, here's the thing… we can't really run from our past because when things slow down, and it gets quiet, our past is always right there, behind us, just over our shoulder.
When we finally get the courage to turnaround and look, we find that buried in the dirt of our past are all the clues we needed to know who and what we were truly meant to be in the first place.
When I look back at my past, most people see a biotech financial executive. Still, something was missing, I was dying inside, and when I connected to the pain and the struggle, I realized my gift was in unlocking the fulfillment I wanted to create in my life, and now I do that for my clients.
Connecting with your story is one of the most powerful natural forces I know to move your life forward.
So, if you'd like to discover what has been sitting in plain sight and has the power to heal and sustain the next level of your life, just like mycelium, then let's have a conversation. I can help you uncover what's always been working under the surface on your behalf. Remember, it's only in the dirt that we find the gold. Reach out if you feel inspired.
