What It Means To “Lean In”

Maria Flynn
Written by Maria Flynn

No doubt if you followed any self-help “guru” you’ve encountered the guidance to “lean in.”

I’ve been listening to Sheryl Sandberg’s audiobook Lean In, where shes says that leaning in is focused on encouraging women to pursue their ambitions, and changing the conversation from what we can’t do to what we can do. (I would only edit this to replace “woman” with EVERYONE). ❤️️

Historically, inside the personal development world, it’s well documented that people are more connected to what DOESN’T work versus what DOES.
They’re more connected to what’s WRONG over what’s RIGHT.

The Universal Law of Polarity shows us that—how you are connected is what keeps you either polarized from what you truly want or it can propel you forward and into what you desire (and that all depends on how you’re leaning in).

If you’ve been following along, then you’re here on my One Wise Life Blog because you’ve been feeling the BIG ENERGY ushered in this month and leaning in is something that you know can help you.

Truth is…
The planetary alignment is influencing all of us to rise above the chaos and become more spiritually aligned (we’re preparing for the Aquarian Age and our next 2000 year cycle).

Leaning in will provide you the more peaceful path that also includes the true FREEDOM you yearn. Leaning in is choosing a soul-aligned path.

Leaning in is what brings ALL the components of your life together to create the Soulful and Purposeful life answering that inner ache you feel (the one that knows there’s more to life).

As the energy this month quickens (you’ll feel it)—you’ll experience sudden and unexpected changes. When properly understood—it will support your path ahead.

===>>> To get clarity around this you’ll have to be willing to improve the quality of your thinking. You can’t bring old ideas/habits/thinking processes into the elevated (more peaceful) life you want to experience. That just makes sense! So, be willing to leave what doesn’t serve you behind.

===>>> Also, consider BEYOND the material things you want in your life. Let yourself feel how life is pulling you to bring it meaning and purpose. The sudden and unexpected changes will allow your Soul Self to reveal herself because she has your attention and it’s pulling you forward.

You can go deeper.
You can be practical and smart about it, too!

Let me go back a little…

2020 so far has been a year serving it all up on a platter! Even just a few months in you see why I say things like, “positivity is good but not enough”.

Yes, positivity is helpful but it can put you on a slippery slope if you’re not considering mindset, energy, spirit, and higher perspective (that is, LEAN IN).

Without properly understanding (having awareness) that your experience “as it is” is what’s positive for you (even and especially when you don’t like it) then you’ll have a difficult time understanding how to leverage any situation. (Please read that again).

Awareness like this is the gateway to PROSPERITY and ABUNDANCE in all ways. So, if you let it, 2020 is offering up some amazing catapults to shift you forward quickly!

Please remember…

You’re here to grow and outgrow your present state and circumstance. No exceptions! If that wasn’t true, then the Universe wouldn’t provide so many opportunities for you to grow.

Every occasion to grow is also a path to your self-mastery.

Awareness is a Sacred gift bestowed unto you from the Universe. The Universe is helping you shake things up to WAKE things up! You’re being called to use AWARENESS more so it becomes a more natural part of your being.

Lean in more.
Listen to what you FEEL come though.
Take what you feel SERIOUSLY.
The world needs you.

Until next time…
