One of the most powerful exercises I have ever experienced which really helped me to authentically clarify who I am here to serve and my purpose was writing a "Radical Honesty Letter" to my clients.
I was at a business workshop about five years ago and we were working on clarifying our purpose-based business, who we served, and the outcome that we provided.
We started out partnering up and taking turns pretending that we were each other's ideal client ("Tribe"). We were to ask the questions we most wanted answers from our ideal client and they were to simply share whatever popped into their minds in response. That was a good start! For me it opened up the channel for guidance to begin flowing through and answers to be revealed.
The real magic happened next! We were asked to go back to our own seats and get ready to write a letter to our ideal client ("Tribe.") That we were to simply write via stream of consciousness whatever came to mind and keep writing and writing and writing until nothing more comes out. To write from the heart what we most felt compelled for them to know. No filter. Heart-to-heart communication.
What came through still to this day, 5 years later, rings true as though it were yesterday. In fact, any time I temporarily "forget" what REALLY matters to me all I have to do is re-read my letter and it immediately connects me heart-to-heart with them.
I love you. I know your pain, beauty, worth, strength, your gifts that are uniquely yours. I want you to be empowered in your purpose and with yourself. I want you to know your worth and the life that serves you.
You are not living a life that is true to you. You are not seeing your worth or value. You are hiding from yourself and the world because you are afraid of what you or others will see. You are letting others dictate how you live your life, taking care of everyone else but yourself. You are dying inside and you don’t even realize what is possible for you, though I know you yearn for something more within. You’ve lost your sense of identify and self and disconnected from yourself. It’s time to receive the support and guidance and let go of your strong sense of being alone.
It’s time to soften your strong resilience and open your heart, reconnect with your feminine energy, and who you really are and release that deep sadness you have been experiencing from living in survival mode and to express true joy.
You deserve more in life and you have to give it to yourself, to take a stand for you, and decide now is the time to live your most authentic life and realize your deeper meaning and purpose. I know you have an internal yearning propelling you forward, a deeper calling that will not let up because at a soul level you have a purpose in this lifetime, but to fulfill this deeper purpose and passion you must first find your own worth so you can be heard and seen fully in the world. You are a powerful woman and you are not yet embracing your full power and beauty. It is time for you to do so now and feel true inner peace.
I can help you get there. I will hold the space of knowing your power, worth, beauty, and a deeper knowing that you have a unique calling, purpose, and gift that must be expressed in this world and I will make sure with laser certainty that you know 100% what is your true life’s purpose. I will walk the path with you guiding you step-by-step through the creation of your most authentic life. You will see and know your worth and fully claim your power living the life that you deserve, as defined by you, and in doing so you’ll be able to fully realize your life’s purpose on a service level, too. Your soul’s life purpose is also the purpose you came here in this lifetime to support others with on a similar journey. You will only be able to fulfill this life’s purpose in service when you’ve first healed and evolved into your own soul’s purpose.
It amazes me just how accurate this depicted my ideal clients when they were just beginning the journey to stepping into their purpose, power, and life's work in the world!
I highly recommend to all purpose-inspired entrepreneurs, regardless of whether you feel that you need more clarity in your business, that you write your own letter!
