Connection. It takes on many forms. Connection to self. Connection to the Divine. Connection to each other. Connection to the earth. Connection.
Yet at its core, it’s all the same. Vibrational resonance. Connection to the vibrational energy that is coursing through each one of us. By nurturing any one aspect of connection, you are deepening your relationships in the other areas of your life. You and your business are inextricably linked. The way you show up for one is the way you show up for the other, whether you realize it or not.
This is top of mind for me this summer as I engage with people at conferences and retreats. I am the walking embodiment of my business. 👋🏻 How I show up in a room speaks volumes about who I am and in my work.
Are we drawn to each other? Amazing! Let’s see where that might lead. Does conversation feel laborious and forced? Wonderful. Now is not our season to work together. Let’s honor that. No need to force a relationship when it doesn’t feel natural.
I’m also incredibly intentional about what events I attend. No surprise there. I seek out communities that feel expansive and inclusive. Spaces where I feel supported and have the opportunity to support others. Environments in which I can hold meaningful conversation and skip the small talk. Places where I walk away feeling fueled instead of drained.
How do you navigate what to attend and how to expand your circle?
