from my heart to yours

What I Know For Sure.

Somehow it seems like lifetimes since I've last written to you, but I know it hasn't really been but a couple weeks.

I feel like I stepped into a super accelerator and jumped out on the other side as an entirely different person. It's nice to reinvent ourselves on occasion. But this time, for me, it wasn't a physical reinvention, or a rock-bottom reinvention or anything like that. 

It was being in the right place at the right time and receiving the exact piece of information I needed at that time.

Shooting Star. A note on Personal Power, Unity and Separation, and White Supremacy.

I have been working with Flower spirits a lot recently, and today I received a beautiful from the Shooting Star. It was a magnificent reminder to me personally that I was not born on this Earth to be a bystander, I am here for a Divine Purpose and it is time to live that purpose.

The energy of the Shooting Start also blessed me with the words to put onto what I have been feeling about the events unfolding around America, specifically Charlottesville, for a while now. 

The message I received from the Shooting Star and the words following are, of course, connected to a deeper Truth: that we are ALL interconnected and we are all here to be beacons of light. In whatever unique way we were meant to do so. Now is the time to claim your Power, to stand for your Truth.

The darkness in the light

We have to get real with ourselves at some point. To stop coddling the ego and go into the darkness. There's a quote of sorts that I used to hear thrown around that says something to the tone of "darkness cannot exist where there is light".

It's not about making yourself wrong for the darkness, it's about shining in the light. Seeing it for what it is. Because once you can see it for what it is, it cannot exist unless you consciously choose to let it. 

So this is what I chose to finally do. Shine the light in. Acknowledge the darkness.

Un-Becoming.

I've awakened to the possibility that there might be more than what this condition provides. I've been awake to it for a while. But I didn't grasp it fully until now (and I probably still don't, quite honestly.) This week I have been given a new perspective on what this means for me. Through conversations that suddenly trigger a memory- an ancient memory not of this lifetime, one that has no words, just feelings. To the very conscious feeling that my 'things' actually own me, not the other way around.

But my biggest realization came to me in my dream last night.

It came from observing myself in a setting in which I was trying to play a role that was built into a system but I wasn't trying to play in that system.

The Essence of Wealth

What is wealth? What is the essence of wealth and abundance? 

Now before you think I've gone all money coach on you here, let me tell you that this isn't about money at all. In fact, wealth isn't really about money. Money can be a result of wealth, it is a tangible indicator of wealth- but not the only one. And money doesn't always indicate wealth. They do not directly correlate, and that's something I think we confuse at times. 

Before I tell you what I believe is the essence of wealth, and what it truly takes to experience wealth, I invite you to ask yourself, what is wealth?

I love you, but it's time to break up

I know I've been distant lately, I'm sorry. But I had some stuff I needed to deal with on my own. See, something just didn't feel right- it's not you, it's me. I've changed. I've grown. This just doesn't work anymore. I need something else.

I need liberation. 

Liberation from this weird relationship full of implied undertones and emotional triggers. I just can't play that game with you anymore, because I've seen the bigger picture, I've stepped out and looked in and quite frankly I don't like what I saw there.

5 things you do for your brand that don't really matter.

I've taken a deep dive into the brand I'm putting into the world through kirstiedempsey.com and all of its platforms. While it's had many evolutions, there was always something below the surface that I was trying to find but I couldn't quite grasp.

And I've finally found it. It's what I like to refer to as an alchemical expression. It's the beating heart of the brand, the energetic signature and bridge between what is tangible and what is not. What is said and what's felt.

We're poisoning the well.

When are we going to wake up and realize that selling the pain is perpetuating the pain? Selling the pain gives us permission to live in the pain. We’re in a constant cycle of working through pain, working through challenges.. working through.

What if we just gave ourselves permission to be where we are without labelling it as painful, or needing fixed or changed? What if as soon as we put a name to what was causing us to be less joyful (because joy and love is our natural state) we just decided to move through that feeling and back into joy? What if we took the focus off of the less-than, back to the more-than and let that be enough to move us through?

Getting to the heart of the matter.

All this noise we experience is distracting. We forget about what really matters, we cling to something that may or may not even serve us. I told you last week about my battle with materialism. (Ok, it's not really a battle, but really.) Materialism is a distraction. We need this to get there. Our feelings can act as a distraction if we don't actually feel them in a healthy way.

Hi, I'm Kirstie, and I'm a materialist.

This past Sunday I attended an event in West Hollywood for a very famous spiritual author. Upon arriving, I pulled up to the building to see that the valet lot was full. The only parking available for the "intimate" event was full. Well now where the F do I park?! LA isn't exactly known for having abundant parking spots. 

So I'm fuming. I'm here to be all connected and spiritual, but instead I'm pissed because all these overly made-up women carrying their designer bags have taken up all the spots with their Range Rovers and Porsches. Who were they to be at this event?! They probably aren't even as spiritual as I am. How could they be? They're more concerned with looking good and flaunting their "things" than actually "being" in a place of spiritual wholeness.

And in that thought, as I parked in a 2 hour street parking spot that I just KNEW I was going to get a ticket for parking in (I didn't), I had to stop and laugh at myself.

Sacred Promises- And my Promise to you.

We all came into this lifetime having made a sacred promise.

I believe that each of us came to Earth with a divine purpose, a promise we made to carry out our mission in this lifetime. You may or may not be with me here, and that's ok. But I know that since you're here, you most certainly do believe you have a purpose on this planet.

no more boxes.

Last week, I co-hosted my first major event, and I have to tell you, it really forced me to reflect how I want to move my business forward. My intention for the event was solely to hold space for these women to heal and grow in their highest and best direction. I stepped back and allowed source to lead the way to deliver exactly what they needed. And my God was it powerful. I finally understood what it meant to be energized by your work.

Which leads me to what has been on my mind lately- when we jump into the online coaching world, we are constantly looking for a box to fit ourselves nicely into.

I'm so tired of being told how to feel.

It seems that lately we are being told "how to feel" a lot. If we're too positive, we're not seeing what's happening in the world. If we're too angsty, we're not leading by an example of positivity. Really, we can't win. 

Or can we?

I think it's time to reframe how we view our emotions. Instead of being ashamed for being sad, let's embrace the sadness. Or not. Because ultimately, they are YOUR emotions. How you experience them, how you express them or release them is your decision.

Open at your own pace (please).

It started about a year ago. I kept feeling something tugging away at my heart. Softly whispering "there's more for you". Well I know that, I thought, I'm just starting a business, obviously there's more coming my way as this thing grows. 

But it wasn't that. It wasn't the tangible elements of beginning a business. It had nothing to do with that. It was my soul calling.

Do you love yourself unconditionally?

As I was making a list of literally everything that came to my mind... always have my nails done, get bi-weekly massages, say the things I really want to say, tell people how transformational the work I do really is, allow myself to buy new workout clothes, talk to the women who inspire me the most, stop downplaying my ideas, go to the beach whenever the f*ck I feel like it... it really hit me that literally nobody in this entire beautiful world is stopping me from doing any one of those things but myself.
