There's something more
When you’re in that place where you don’t know what to do, and you clearly know it’s not what you’re doing now … okay, I’ll say it, life sucks.
You’ve done your best, done what you were supposed to do, and it’s still not right.
Everything looks great on the outside, while the inside feels more like a jumble of frustrated, empty and lost with a dash of everything else.
Shouldn’t finding your passion, or at least some direction, be a lot easier than this?
Really. You are.
There’s a very good reason for feeling off-track, not knowing what to do or stretched between two lives.
Those inner whispers and nudges are messages letting you know deeper change is afoot.
When, not if.
You’ll get there.
You’ve already taken the first steps.
Up to now, you’ve likely been focusing on what to do
You just don’t know what that is. Or how you’ll get there. Or when is the right time.
You’ve tried just about everything. Nothing clicks.
Nothing quite causes you to sink back, let go and exhale “This. Is. My. It.”
Here’s the thing
The answers you’ve been looking for are right here.
Hidden all around in plain sight.
Instead of focusing on what to do, the key is found in discovering you.
That journey takes another approach.
A shift in questions.
That’s what we’re up to here.
Developing those new skills and seeing the answers you’ve been looking for.
You. are. ready.
Me? Been there too...
I’m Lorraine Watson, and have traveled this road of seeking and questioning. I know what feeling hesitant, vulnerable, alone and even lost can be like when the inner call won't stop.
Part catalyst, part Sherpa and part nudger among other things, I’m at my best letting loose my insatiable curiosity, intuitive abilities and cutting through the crap to uncover the nuts & bolts core.
I’m your partner in finding clarity about who you really are and living true to yourself.
Follow Your Light is all about supporting you in knowing yourself more deeply, hearing the whispers more clearly and having the courage to step into ‘there's something more to life’ that is calling you.
You're not the only one
Navigating this journey of transformation comes with a wide range of thoughts and emotions. For as lonely as it feels as times, what you're seeking is what so many others are searching for too.
We don't recognize each other because it's difficult to talk about something so personal, and not everyone starts their questioning at the same time.
What you'll find in common with other questioners is:
You want to be you all the time, not one person at work or out with friends and another at home.
You're tired of doing what everyone - and you - thinks is the proper thing you should do.
You want to step off the hamster wheel and live instead with that so far elusive sense of inner peace and ease.
You want the clarity of knowing what you're supposed to do, at least to be headed in the right direction.
You want to live a true life, without the pressure of it having to be the best, most badass extraordinary one.
You want to explore new things, even though they're not who you were before.
creating the groundwork for the journey ahead
Change often feels lonely. Isolated.
You don’t want to burden others with what’s been weighing you down.
Friends and family don’t understand and you haven’t met anyone who does.
Now you have.
I’ve been there. I get you.
Talking, sharing and just plain hanging out with others who know what you’re going through changes the process of changing.
Being in the same space with others, you begin to see you're not alone, know there’s support and uplifted by new ideas and energy.
Start Where You Are
Change is unsettling. Full of unknowns.
It’s that place in between where you’ve been and where you’re heading. You don’t quite belong in either.
That’s a good thing because you won’t be distracted from looking at what’s here now and what you do know.
The nudges of change set off a slew of a questions that don't seem to have clear answers. Of those, four in particular come up for most everyone when they’re in this space in between.
I've tackled those with my take and seeing why you're right where you're supposed to be when facing change.
Build a Foundation
Figuring out the one thing you’re supposed to do – and getting it perfectly right – is a huge ask.
So huge in fact, your brain is more likely to freeze with overwhelm than find the answer.
Instead of focusing on “the happily ever after” end, building skills used over and over again will help you keep taking the next step forward.
No matter what change you face, you'll be better equipped to create space, Listen to what's appearing around you, and find greater clarity on the next steps to take.
Practicing these practical three steps turns them into powerful tools that are always at your disposal.
Finding a kindred spirit
Wanting to feel safe and be around others who get you is important.
You want to work with someone who “clicks."
I want that for myself.
Which side of the slider resonates most with you?
There's no doubt the journey ahead feels a bit daunting.
If it was easy, you'd already be there.
What you should do next really does start with three small steps.
They'll give you some momentum and set some groundwork for what's ahead.
