Some Possible Support Options (additional ideas in the story; open to other ideas too)
My Story- Why I'm Reaching Out for Support
When I leave my apartment, I'm leaving with my car, clothing, dishes, linens, some books, tools, outdoor gear that survived & my kayak. Mold tried to take my health, but failed. It claimed my belongings but not my heart. This money (aiming for $4500 to cover taxes and FB fees) will pay for items to keep my new home mold safe, very basic furniture and bedding, and replacing the electronics that were mold contaminated so that I have the tools for my home office. If we reach $5000, I will be able to pay for business marketing coaching also. Your support fans the flame in my heart to make a difference in this world. I'm excited to be healing and healthy enough again to do this much needed work in the world. It is my intention to move forward centered, with grace and compassion and a renewed connection with the Earth, people and all things. It is mt intention to "pay forward" everything that comes my way. Click here to go to my Facebook Fundraiser page.
More of My Story (The Letter I Sent to My Closest Circle)
I'm doing something really scary this week-I mean really, like a childhood part of myself has blocked me from asking for support for most of my life out of fear of making you (everyone) angry at me, disappointed and even causing you to unplug yourself as a connection. Now I realize 1) whatever your response, it's' ok, really and meant to be, and 2) to be aligned with my passion and Journey, wandering into this shadow around "receiving" is necessary. So, today I want to share a tiny bit of my story and ask, invite you to be a part of the circle, the folx who help me reset my life after mold tried to tear it down.
I was ill for almost 3 years and couldn't figure out why. I started my life coaching and nature coaching business-had a blast, then I could barely touch a computer or do any brain work for over a year...after that covid economy and more very roadblocking symptoms occurred, dramatically limiting my ability to market myself to find clients and attendees. Luckily I figured it out with a lot of determination, and after getting rid of 80% of my belongings, treating my rental living space and starting on a detox journey, I'm already feeling better than I have in years.
HOWEVER, getting rid of my belongings-like almost everything and setting up my next rental home with the most basic things to be mold safe (it takes effort in New England) will cost about $4000. Testing my current house and myself, detoxing it as best I could as a renter, taking supplements to sustain my health/detox and navigating severe underemployment due to covid was something I amazingly managed this full year. Now, to reset, I have to look beyond my own finances, because, I think it's truely part of my intended experience, AND I'm at the point where covering the regular monthly expenses is a bit of a stretch.
By the way, this isn't a sad story. This is a release and rebirth story-seriously! I know this chapter in my journey has transpired to teach me things I need to know to be the best coach and connection mentor possible, AND to release old shadows, and to open up to a wildly interesting intuitive part of myself. I also believe that anyone who is hungry for coaching and connection support should have access to it. It's a part of my truth and my business model. For every penny shared to help me, I will allocate equal funds to support future clients with limited financial resources.
"We are better together", as one of my good friends says. It's true. We were designed to connect and create communities that interweave our hearts our lives and our needs. When we don't we are less likely to thrive. When we give, we are DESTINED to recieve...if we allow it. It's the way of the Universe. I've resisted help my whole life-it was genetically bred into me (lineage of survival). Fierce independence was the way, and I believe shame around "need" to "rely" on others. existed (which I know now is never our Truth). I've realized very recently, that when I KNOW something is supposed to happen, and I resist, I'm not only blocking my own flow and experience, but I'm stepping in the way of everyone who is a part of my Journey, and that includes you (You get to decide how or if you will respond-that's your part. I was "simply" to get my brave on and ask.). To be in the flow, we must allow the flow to happen. This is me facing the tiger of fear and resistance. I now trust in whatever happens as what was intended to be.
So what do I need? Well..I'm almost like a kid (a 49 year old kid) heading out to college-with clothes, dishes, some camping gear that survived, my most treasured books and metal tools...and that's about it! What would a college kid need in a small apartment, a kid that has allergies? LOL That's what I need...and it's about $4000 (detailed lists of items are on my facebook page in a few colored posts).
Eagle Vision Ideas/Big Picture Support- I know some of you really believe in me. Some of you may have no idea what the details of my work are, but you believed in me years ago, so you can see the passion now. Some of you have seen me ride wave after wave, these past few years, transforming myself constantly. If this sparks your curiosity, yes please, let's talk! <3
Thank you for reading this far, if you did. I treasure that you have received my request. What you do now, is exactly what is supposed to happen, and I have my "little" at my side to support her if HER anxiety rises. I'm good. Better than good. I MAY send a 2nd message to you because, well spam folders, holiday, busy lives, and we'll I've learned recently that one of the best things we can do is embrace failure as a standard part of our experience...and simply try again. (Note: I am aiming to meet the initial goal of $4000 by the beginning of January to coincide with a move.)
Much love to you...I hope that one day I can reciprocate. If you or a friend of yours could benefit from coaching or would love some personalized intention jewelry, I can reciprocate that very shortly. Otherwise, I'll be here in the "Everywhen" with flow at my side, ready to rise to the occasion for you should the need arise.
Happy Holidays, whichever you celebrate,
