Jump Into Your Purpose NOW Or WAIT a Little Longer?

When talking about purpose, a lot of people will encourage you to just jump into the unknown.

“Quit your job and do it.”

“You don’t have to study or prepare. Just do it!”

“Close your eyes, trust, and just jump!”

I agree with this mentality on certain occasions. Typically when you have some experience in the area of your purpose and parts of you are ready for the shift, but there are fears that you won’t be supported or you'll fail miserably is when I encourage clients to “strategically throw caution to the wind” and just do it!

However, this type of action can feel overly shocking for the nervous system if you're not ready. It doesn’t mean it’s the wrong decision.  It just means that you may have to navigate deeper emotions and more intensified fears and anxieties.

If you find that you want a more gentle approach to stepping into your purpose, I invite you to transition instead of blindly leaping.

Continue doing what you are currently doing to make money and feel some sense of security, while you take massive action in the direction of your purpose at the same time.

Let the parts of you that are ready to stand in your purpose know that it’s coming and will happen soon.

When you feel a certain level of sturdiness in your purpose (it doesn’t have to be a complete sensation of security), take the leap.

This way, you're moving in the direction of your purpose without shocking your nervous system and completely abandoning your fearful parts.

I want to know how it was for you when you jumped into your purpose or how it’s going if you’re considering taking the leap.

So, which team are you: Jump Now or Transition More Slowly?

I did the whole leap of faith thing when I started my first network marketing business. Quit my job as my upline advised me to do, I would get enough motivation and time to work on my abundance! 

Waht it got me was big debts. Because I had so many unconscious beliefs in my energy, I went down fast. So for me, no more big leaps, just fitting steps towards my breakthrough. I am however ready for a breakthrough :)

Joyce...You are not alone with that! I know that feeling of taking the leap and then feeling like the only thing catching you is debt : ( 

Now, I like to take steps towards my next project or leap, while I have something else in place. It feels a lot safer for my nervous system.

Sending love as you allow your next breakthrough to happen! I feel it coming!!!

Hi Lloyd,

Thank you for creating space for this theme. I was recommended by a lightworker to leave my current work and relationships as the full moon amplifies what's no longer helping me and I ended up leaving my job, and a mental health worker. In work and relationships I attract covert narcissists and it leaves me feeling confused, abused, desired but certainly not valued, burned out and hopeless. This cycle is ongoing and despite my efforts to push my business im not attracting clients wanting to buy my art. This is all hurting my relationship with my sister as I've missed rent, I'd like to know what I can do to shift all of this.

Big Love,

Guran

Hi Lloyd! Great idea bringing this up. A few years ago, I wanted to quit my career and take the big leap, but I had a lot of fear and anxiety about leaping into the unknown. With the help of my therapist at the time and my CPA, I created an emotional and financial safety net. I saved money aggressively for 10 months and then quit my job. I'll be honest, it was really hard to go into work everyday during those 10 months after I had decided I was quitting. But I coped with it with the help of my therapist, and by focusing on my intentions for my life, and when all else failed, looking at google images of the places I would be traveling to! Transitioning slowly made my subsequent year of not working much more enjoyable because even though I didn't know what I was going to do next, at least I didn't have to stress about $.

Wow Francine! What a beautiful to transition into your next phase of purpose and work. Emotional AND financial safety nets are so important and supportive to our nervous system and the vision of our purpose. 

Thank you for sharing your process. I'm sure many people looking to take the leap will find wisdom in your story.
