"When a woman tells the truth, she is creating the possibility for more truth around her."

Message From Bobbie:

Possibility is the engine of the universe. It grows from molecules to imagination, goes through a creative process to achieve brilliant breakthroughs landing finally as a small, personal miracle.

Life itself is possible if we believe it to be so, and possibility often begins with the simple act of telling our personal truths.

Truth-telling is a gift to ourselves that creates possibility and inspires others to believe their own dreams are possible. Each personal truth creates an opportunity for every other person to grab their own possible future; one they may not have seen until your "truth door" opened.

The Possibility of Possibility

"Until the Rise Up! workshop, I told myself that I was a woman who knew who I was and where I was going," said Pamela. "‘Self-Actualized’ was a term I proudly claimed!"

Pamela is the "perfect" mom, wife, friend, daughter and sister. No one would have accused her of "living a lie," but that is what she says of herself today.

"I attended the workshop because I felt a little confused about my future as my kids were getting older. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to return to the nursing career I pursued before I had kids. But when we learned to release ourselves from the small ‘boxes’ of identity, I had the much greater realization that I hadn’t been living my own truth for a long time! Nothing is possible when the truth isn’t being told."

Featured Exercise:

Personal truth is rarely an easy inner-secret to find. We have all learned to be afraid of expressing our deepest selves. But we can start accessing that inner voice with some simple techniques:

  1. Breathe and meditate. If meditation is not yet part of your process, then try five deep inhales/exhales in a quiet space where you are physically comfortable and alone. Some people like to do yoga first to stretch and relax, and some even tell me that a quick run and stretch at the end will loosen the body/mind and allow free thought to flow. Do whatever works for you.
  2. Have your journal waiting, or at least a nice writing pad and paper.
  3. When your body and mind are loose (but not before!) see yourself at the happiest and most fulfilled you have ever been in your life. Breathe deeply into that picture. This can be any time in your life. One woman told me it was when she was nine years old, and another said hers was last week!
