|I know you have probably said this to yourself more than once. I know I have.|
“It’s been a year.”
When the pandemic hit my main source of income, recruiting, came to a screeching halt.
My future source of income (being a Career Sherpa guiding women back to their true nature so they can have a career that aligns with what they most want to be doing versus withering away in a job that is socially acceptable yet physically and emotionally draining) is still in the toddler stage.
It was not easy. I went back and forth between trusting life unconditionally and crying in the shower.
Then I decided to ask for help. Not from my husband, parents or friends. They were there for me already. I needed to bring in the calvary.
I needed to call on my Spiritual Board of Advisors (the super bad SBOA) for some support.
So, I went to sleep!
Right before drifting off, I asked my SBOA for some guidance. I said, “I am struggling right now. Money is tight and my business is slow. What advice and support can you give me?”
Slept like a 👶baby!
As I came awake that next morning I was singing, out loud Three Little Birds by Bob Marley, for no apparent reason except that the SBOA must have put the words in my mouth.
Because I know you are going to ask, I had not heard that song in months, maybe a year or more. I like the song, but it is not something I play on the regular.
I found myself singing “Don’t worry about a thing. Every little thing is going to be alright”.
The SBOA came through big time, or at least that is what I choose to believe!
That song is now on repeat on my iPhone.

Guess what? I’m not special. Your SBOA are always speaking to you.
If you are feeling stress about an area of your career or life, your job search is not getting traction, your workload needs just one more straw before your back breaks, your energy is low, or your healthy habits have gone out the window now is the time to call on your personal Spiritual Board of Advisors.
Before going to bed, write down 1 question you would love some help on. Then close your eyes and sleep without a care in the world.
In the morning, what is the first thing that pops into your head?
Maybe something. Maybe nothing. I believe that our SBOA speak to each of us in different ways. Your SBOA may have a different method of communicating. Maybe nothing hits you in the morning but later that day a book, song or video speaks to you and you know you were meant to hear it.
Or, when you are in a store you overhear someone in conversation, and something leaps on the inside. It resonates with you so strongly you have a sense it was meant for you.
Because it was!
Your SBOA is handing you a piece of advice or support.
All you have to do is listen and then act as guided.
