This evening I don't want to talk about the impact I have made in the lives of others, no that's already out there and sometimes we seem so focused on that we forget to think impact in our own lives. I want to talk about the impact the featured change makers program has had on my life.
First of all, I will be as vulnerable and authentic as usual. I was not in the best of shapes and spaces in mind when I applied for that program. For me, it was like reaching out for a life support jacket and hoping to find some energy enough as we sailed, to find my bearings and SOAR so I could do much more for my community.
The initiative I chose to get on was novel and really not one about DOING but more about BEING MENTALLY HEALTHY - what a topic to be blowing trumpets and playing flutes on right?. Covid-19 had just reared it's ugly head and I was losing my bearings again; PTSD sucks and you could appear to the world to have it all together while sinking very deeply within.
And that is why when filling the questionnaire on what I wanted in a mentor, all I remember saying is that I wanted someone who could hold space for me and understand what I was hoping to do and feedback.
I released a prayer to the universe and was delighted to get an email some weeks or so later that my mentor is called MEGHA. She has been here on World Pulse since 2013 and yet I hadn't even come across a post of hers for the two years I had been here? Wow quick I went to study her profile and listen to her podcasts that night, and responded to that email the next morning with a "thank you universe"... here is my response email to the WP team and Megha:
Do you realize we now have three names starting with M in this conversation? I mean what's the probability that my mentors name starts with same first letter like mine? It's going to be magical.
Thanks Megha (add an n at the end and see how you could be the princess hurray), for accepting to by my mentor.
Please permit me connect mid next week after my current spiritual retreat.
Light and Love"
And coincidentally am on another spiritual retreat as I write.
Megha and I had a super soul hour long conversation and we realized we had both had such a huge impact on each other's lives. We even had the same book by Peter Levine on titled "Awakening the Tiger" about healing Trauma wow wow wow. Indeed we had both said prayers a while ago hoping we could stay special spiritual sisters long after the FCM program was over. Of course once we shared that with each other, our chorus was a big big YES. The impact we've had on our live shows already on our skins and our glows.
This is the kind of ultimate impact I wanted to create in my own life first and foremost, by joining World Pulse and applying to be an Ambassador, and also a featured change maker. For, what will it benefit me to be doing and doing and keeping a tab on how and how many I have impacted if I can't feel an impact in my own being?
Thank you World Pulse and thank you Megha.
The program ends next month but our sisterhood continues. We will surely meet someday, am a globetrotter and the Mauritius Island isn't on a far off planet hahahahaha
