After Fat Tuesday Will You Take Off Your Mask?

mask_carnival_decorationDid you know that originally the wearing of masks during Mardi Gras was a way that allowed people to escape the rigid class constraints of their day and mingle with people of all classes? They could be whomever they desired to be, an experiment of sorts, at changing their place in society.

I suspect that in some ways we think we still do that. That is, we think we wear our daily “masks” to control the way in which others view us, or perhaps, control the way we view ourselves.

What if, however, we are actually wearing our “masks” out of fear of how BIG we really are! Remember Marianne Williams’ famous speech that included?

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.

I have two opportunities for helping you to take off your mask, and step far more boldly into the Light you are here to shine:

  • If you are part of the new generation of people who want to be forerunners in the evolution of our humanity, you know that you are here to actually incarnate as the Divine Spirit that you are, to make visible and tangible what was once invisible.
    If you are on the fence about registering for this advanced program, please email me at so that I can answer any questions and sweeten the deal for you.

    The Spiritual Explorer’s Path leads you in this very process. Explore how to surrender to, and then boldly step forth as, your Embodied Essence. You can create this skill set in collaboration with others who also thrive at evolving consciousness through themselves. The teleclass & intensive e-course begins Tuesday, March 1, 7:00 pm. If you are a pioneer of consciousness, this is the next step beyond self-healing and self-exploration. We will be a community together, co-creating.

Appropriate this FREE workshop takes place on Fat Tuesday (2/9, 5:00 pm CT), because you will discover specific, actionable ways to remove your mask and be the source of transformation and change you know is possible through your message. Rachael Jayne Groover can help you. This complimentary Master Class is titled, “The TRUTH about what it takes to be visible and well compensated as a FEMININE LEADER.” I’ve attended other webinars by Rachael Jayne and she really does give value for your investment of time.

In our natural state, we are glorious beings. In the world of illusion, we are lost and imprisoned. Marianne Williams

Are YOU a Wayshower?

Are You A Wayshower?

Are You Answering (or resisting) the Call to Step Powerfully Into Your Purpose?

fire light 2 dreamstimefree_70114These are the questions my Conscious Evolutionary Circle is asking these days and we are sparking the flame within ourselves to not hold back, and to step powerfully forward into this calling.

The Angle News Network defines Wayshowers as “light workers who choose to bring their talents and gifts into the world in a larger way.  They use their leadership skills to help light workers contribute their skills to create a new world of community, harmony and equality.”

In our first couple of Circles about this subject, we looked at some common themes.

  • The importance of building our skills at living as our Essence, accepting and acknowledging ourselves as fully embodied and conscious spiritual beings.

This becomes a daily spiritual practice to be willing to consciously engage with others as our Essence, and be willing to notice when conditioned responses take over.   (See below for the opportunity to be a beta tester for an e-course to build this skill.)

  • To expand our spiritual practice for the integration of our beingness with our evolutionary impulse (read more) and allow “sacred activism” to ensue.
Andrew Harvey Institute for Sacred Activism

A spirituality that is only private and self-absorbed, one devoid of an authentic political and social consciousness, does little to halt the suicidal juggernaut of history. On the other hand, an activism that is not purified by profound spiritual and psychological self-awareness and rooted in divine truth, wisdom, and compassion will only perpetuate the problem it is trying to solve, however righteous its intentions. When, however, the deepest and most grounded spiritual vision is married to a practical and pragmatic drive to transform all existing political, economic, and social institutions, a holy force – the power of wisdom and love in action – is born. This force I define as Sacred Activism.”      – Andrew Harvey

  • Stepping powerfully forward as a Wayshower can feel isolating and lonely.

As you lean into your calling as a Wayshower, it is more important than ever to form community with other like-minded pioneers.  You come to recognize that you are not a-l-o-n-e, but rather, a-l-l o-n-e.  You need a place to share ideas, heart-storm your next steps, and shore each other’s courage for accepting the vulnerability of bearing one’s soul as a gift to the world.  I deeply encourage you to find one or more places, face-to-face if possible, to interact with other Wayshowers.

If you are in Austin, please consider joining our MeetUp group that Circles on the third Wednesday of the month.  We are having a special “5th week” Circle on May 29, 10:45, mezzanine of Whole Foods at 6th and Lamar.

Are You a Wayshower who hasn’t stepped out yet?
