Show Notes Transcript

The key to change is Consciousness.  

Consciousness is an expanded awareness. 

It's an awareness of who you are, why you are here and what you need to do to get to where you need to go. 

Suppressing this awareness or that voice inside of you calling you to something greater leads to depression and depression leads to dis-ease - mental, physical and spiritual. 

Not living in integrity with yourself literally leads to dysfunction and imbalances in your brain and body. 

If you feel called to a path, there is a reason for that and it’s far bigger than you. ⁣

Your job isn't to try to make everyone happy or explain what you're doing to people who will never understand. 

Your job is to answer the call. 

Learn to trust yourself and show those that doubt you through your actions another way to live their life. 

That is why you are here. 

Tune into this episode to learn more about the Key to Change and how to own your power to create anything you want in the world. 

Buckle up and enjoy the ride!

What is up world, Jesse Simpson here I'm super duper Uber grateful that you're here. Thank you so much for tuning in. I've got an episode today where I want to talk about the key to change, the key to transformation, the key to only who you are and your power to create literally anything you want in the world. I've had a lot of conversations recently with people who are struggling to find their way, they are feeling overwhelmed, they're feeling disconnected, they have lost touch with who they are and why they are here. And why we are here is to expand, is to express, is to serve, is to share. And if you're not sharing your gifts, you're not living up to your calling, to your full potential, then you're going to feel increasing amounts of discomfort of distinction of disease. We literally create physical disease, chemical imbalances in our brain and body, when we suppress or deny or neglect this part of ourselves that's calling us to make a change. That's calling us to do something different with our life. It's the volume on our challenges on our pain that will continue to get turned up until we make the conscious decision to tune in, to pay attention. to own our power to change the channel. It's time for you to get on the frequency of the life you want to live on who you were born to become on the life you are moving towards, or you're called to create for yourself and your loved ones instead of soaking up all the negativity, all the bullshit all the noise from people around you who don't understand. When I decided that I was going to sell all my things, resigned from what I once thought was my dream career and take a trip around the world. Most people didn't understand. I had a conversation with my dad one time and I told him what I was going to do. And he he didn't get it. He didn't understand. But the reality is, there are people around us, they love us, you know, they care for us, and they don't understand. So it's our job, it's our role to show them through our convictions, through our commitments to answering this call to action, that what we're doing is for a reason that there's something something bigger happening here. It's our responsibility to show them through our conviction that we are committed to the process and their voices, that people that don't understand they will either shut up, or they will turn into support. So let's stop distracting ourselves by staying busy with stuff that doesn't matter. And these , "side hustles" that steal our time. There's a reason why we here. And if you're not answering that call to action uncovering that, that is why you feel like shit. That is why you are so anxious. That's why you are feeling depressed. That's why you feel overwhelmed, because you're spending your time distracting yourself from that calling, from that reason. So stop acting like there's a perfect time. Other than right now, this is like it's like a phone ringing in your hand in the best opportunities right in front of your face. You've got to answer the call. You've got to own your power to create literally anything you want in the world. Not only did my dad not understand but the people I work with didn't understand. You know, this was a dream career, the perfect setup. We had retirement guaranteed we had awesome amounts of time off and these different benefits that people are seeking. And my my job is into when I'm moving on this path to make sure everyone understands that what my desire is what my dream is, is in alignment with what they want for me. And so I move forward, and I went on that leap of faith and a lot of those voices those people that don't understand I, I actually don't talk to them anymore. And that doesn't mean they're not good people. That doesn't mean that what they have to say or think isn't relevant in some circles, but it's not relevant to me. And my greatest fear is that you will continue to suppress your gifts to hide what you really want to shut off your voice to just eat it in your throat, because you're worried of being rejected, or the judgment of other people who will literally never understand. Now, those people that do care, those people that do want you to succeed, like my dad, for example, who didn't understand why I was leaving, they will eventually turn into support, once you show them through your conviction that you are going to make this happen that this is important to you, you can say, thank you, I appreciate and understand your concern, but this feels right. So I'm going to go for it. And I'd really love to have your support. Now, if they don't turn into support, they don't deserve to be in your life. And that's a tough pill to swallow. But if there's something that you're called to do, you have to go for it, you have to go for it, there's no option. So stop giving yourself the option to dance around and be distracted, and start to tune into that deeper knowing that there is more to life, that you have more to give, that you are not living up to your full potential. Now, having went on this journey, I would like to be the first to tell you that there absolutely is, you have to give yourself the gift of finding out what I'm even talking about right now. It's available to every single one of us, no matter where we've come from, or what our past would say. And I now on the other side of this can speak to what it meant for my dad, how he went from unsure, anxious, I was leaving everything behind to wow! I get it. And actually about two years ago, when we were living in Colombia, I had a conversation with my dad. And it was about his dream to move to Florida, he wanted to live by the beach. He was stuck in Nebraska, he'd been there for 10 years, he was really unhappy with his life. And he was called to move to Florida and enjoy the warm weather and the beach. And in that conversation about two years ago, he told me he got it. He didn't understand why I would leave, but what he was experiencing on that call was that calling that knowing that one, there's something bigger happening here, that you can literally create anything you want in your life, that you can go for it, you can take that first step and that next step will appear. He was seeing it through my own actions in the way I was living my life. He was tapping in to the key to change, which is consciousness, it's awareness. It's awareness about who you are, why you're here, and what is possible for you. And then fast forward, my my dad moved to Florida, about a year later. He quit his job. He came to this this state that he's always wanting to live in, after 10 years of being stuck in the Midwest. And he changed his life. He doesn't have everything figured out. But he's doing the best he can. And he's moving forward, creating his life instead of letting life create him. He's seen that it is possible. And he has made the conscious decision to change his life. You can too. And the point of this is to realize that in the beginning, your job isn't to help other people who don't understand, understand. Your job is to demonstrate through your own action through your own conviction that literally anything is possible and that you can literally create anything you want. And I mean that in a very literal way. Anything that you want as possible, you just have to open your mind to that possibility and go out and create it. Stop trying to appease the people around you. And seek to instead inspire them through your own actions, and your own belief, and show them the way because what all these people are doing is projecting their own fears and doubts and limitations onto you. So you need to affirm their value through your appreciation and love and assure them that you have chosen your path. And then by doing that, you will show them a different way to live their life. If nothing else, regardless of what the gifts you might have or what you are being called to do. Your purpose here is to show other people a new way to live their life. Your role here is to show other people what is possible for them. I heard a quote one time that goes when you are not living a life that is true to yourself you are committing spiritual suicide. How many of you have been suppressing yourself? You've been identifying with this false sense of self you've been trying to conform to the literally unconformable, the people who are just never happy, you're trying to appease them, you're unable to authentically express yourself, you're denying your gifts to the world. In that moment, you can feel that you are committing this sort of spiritual suicide. Your purpose is to answer that call, you're put on this path to move forward, to show other people a new way. It's to wake up to what is actually possible for you. Now, I understand that it's not as easy to put into practice as it is for me to say, but one thing that's so important on this journey, as you're moving forward is that you learn to trust yourself, you learn to come home to yourself, you learn to own the voice, and live in integrity. With that voice, it's calling for you to move forward. Because when everyone around you is doubting you, you're gonna start to question yourself. But if you have learned to trust yourself, then you can move forward with ease, it will feel effortless. Now, one of the keys to this, this process of learning to trust yourself is learning to develop your intuition. One way I like to think about this is our intuition lives in our gut, that gut feeling that this is what you need to do. This is where you need to go. This is what you need to say is real, it is very, very real. And the more you shut that down, the more the suffering will get turned up. If you are hearing thoughts in your head, that is fear. Those are programs, from the people around you from propaganda from mass media, that are coming through to you. So it's so important as you learn to trust yourself that you differentiate between that intuition, that feeling that trust that inner knowing that everything you need is inside of you all the answers, the questions you could ever ask, or right there in your gut, in your intuition. Separating that from the thoughts and ideas and negative limiting beliefs of other people that live in your mind, then you can really, truly move forward on this path that you are meant to be on. So that's all I've got for you today ladies, gentlemen, I know this was a little bit out there. But there's someone listening to this that it really deeply resonates with, I know that to be true. And I know that if that is you that you are being called for a reason. It doesn't matter what it is, you don't have to explain it. I know that feeling that inner knowing that there's more to life, and again, from someone who's on the other side of this. There is, so go for it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. And as you move forward, and you take action and you actually create what it is you know you can create, everything in your life changes. Those voices of people who don't understand fadeaway you will never talk to them again. And those people who were projecting their fears with people you love your family, your closest friends, those voices of not understanding will turn into support. And you'll have now owned your power to create anything you want in your life. That is the key to change, that awareness, that knowing that you can do that. You can do this, you literally can't fail. So go for it. Take the risk, take action, and give yourself this gift. It will be the best thing you've ever done. Thanks so much for tuning in ladies and gentlemen.
