Subject: BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS!!! + Ticked OFF to Grow of July's many lessons!

Good Afternoon!

Happy month of August to you!  For me, July was a month full of trusting, transitioning, and transformation! As I entered the 48th chapter of this embodied spiritual journey called life, I came face-to-face with my strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (my SWOT analysis). 

I became intimately and consciously aware of those things that make me tick and those things that simply tick me off. So, it has been a month of compassionate growth, and I have had many teachers.

You see, I am very familiar with the potential and problematic nature of my personality type as an Enneagram Type 8 (The Challenger) and during this past month, my awareness of the growing edges that are still in need of healing increased exponentially. Those things that still push my buttons, the instinctual knowing that I failed to heed, and the post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from past experiences—all resurfaced. 

Understanding my personality type is a significant piece of the puzzle, but the other really significant piece is knowing and growing into healthier states of integration. That requires us to embrace our shadow and our light.  Needless to say, it was a month of trusting that not only was it time to grow, but that growth is indeed possible. 

Although I literally feel like my physical life is ALWAYS in transition, July signaled a time of transitioning that is also mental, emotional, and spiritual. It has been a time of working towards balance in all aspects of my being and giving more attention and intention to those aspects of me beyond the physical realm. 

That meant identifying the energy drains, choosing to set new boundaries, and redirecting that energy to what is life-giving. Creating balance and establishing boundaries, however, is not merely about self-preservation, but it is for the sacred purpose of self-actualization—living your highest truth.

But how do I integrate my greater sense of awareness and healthier boundaries into a transformed life of coherence?  

Well, as occupants of a world organized around capitalism, white supremacy, and patriarchy, coherence will require us all to acknowledge the cognitive dissonance that is sure to arise as we encounter those strongholds in our subconscious. 

For in the same way that we cannot fix what we are unwilling to face, we cannot live in coherence without a holistic consciousness. I’m not simply talking about a higher consciousness (spiritual), which is certainly integral to coherence.  But I’m also talking about an embodied consciousness (physical, mental, emotional) that incorporates and restores the voices, value, and visions of those traumatized by racism, classism, sexism, and other baseless, dehumanizing, and divisive phobias. 

When higher consciousness co-creates with embodied consciousness, the transformation that results is a life of coherence that offers the best version of yourself to the world as a collaborative co-creator instead of an unconscious consumer. 

This process of creating awareness, balance, and coherence is A Path to Blissful Authenticity, and the month of July has challenged and charged me to really take up my mantle as a collaborative co-creator and fully engage in my sacred purpose. To that end, I am thrilled to share the following:

In the words of an African wisdom saying known as Ubuntu,"I am because you are and you are because I am."  So, may the "I am" that we are be fully revealed, known, and fulfilled that we may be authentically empowered to live our highest truth!

Yours in Love & Truth,

Tara LaShawn Seabrook

"You are an amazing woman and coach,
and I can just feel how much good you are bringing
(and are about to bring) to the world.  
I am so grateful that our lives intersected. 
Working with you has taught me
the power of working with a great coach

A good 
coach brings skills;
a great coach brings heart. 
Your insight, compassion, and genuine desire
to make the world better

helped set me on a path to be more than I thought
I could be, to be the person that I can be.
I am forever grateful...
YOU are a gift to the world."
