Introduction to The Radiant Threefold Path
Every journey begins with the destination in mind.
You are the destination of this journey.
You know exactly who you are, and you trust yourself as your fiercest ally.
And most of all, you know that you are worthy, loved, and enough.
From this foundation of abundance, you offer to the world the unique gifts that only you can give.
The invitation is to discover and unveil you — radiantly empowered.
So many women, despite how their lives appear on the outside, feel lost, undesirable, and alone on the inside.
I know because I've been that woman.
We're sad, disappointed, and angry because no matter how much we give or try to help or how much we ask or plead or beg or nag, we feel empty. We don't feel "enough."
In fact, we feel unseen, unappreciated, unheard, exhausted, and resentful.
We're afraid because the loudest and most powerful voices don't speak our truth. And the consequences of our truth being unheard or dismissed affect us, our loved ones, our community, and even the planet.
Our thoughts are out of sync with "the norm" (whatever that is), or we struggle to feel accepted in a world that feels foreign to us because it doesn't match our inner knowing.
Or maybe we've been in a life-long war with our body — what it looks like, our relationship with food, or what it needs and wants.
I remember thinking that if I could just somehow get it right — whatever “it” was — or make the other person happy, or give enough, or figure out why people did what they did, or look right, or act right, or say it the right way, or be nice, then I would finally feel content, complete, and happy.
The problem was, it never worked.
But there is a path that does.
Return + Reclaim + Receive
The Radiant Threefold Path
What I couldn’t understand — but do today — is that the key to my contentment and my connection with others isn’t about getting it right, making others happy, figuring them out, helping others solve their problems, or giving to the point of rage-filled exhaustion.
What I discovered is that the key is inside me.
And it’s inside you, too.
When you know how to return to your self, reclaim what is yours, and receive everything meant for you, you are fully prepared to offer your unique gifts to the world — which desperately needs what you have to give.
You give from a deep well of abundance, rather than from exhaustion, guilt, resentment, or "giving to get" as a tool for obtaining what you need, want, and desire.
The 7 Invitations of the Path call you to return to the truth of your authentic self, know and claim your desires, and receive — the essence of feminine power.
the 7 Invitations
The First Invitation
Knowing you means uncovering the perfect truth of your radiant self.
Reclaiming your authentic feminine self starts with knowing exactly who you are — body, mind, and soul.
As women, we are bombarded every day with images, messages, and even people we love who tell us how we should look, how we should act, what we should wear, what we should think, and how we should (or shouldn’t) speak. And we try — we really do — to measure up and make everyone happy.
The problem is, it doesn’t work — and it’s exhausting.
We’ve been trained for so long to practice so many forms of being "nice" and people-pleasing that we simply don’t know the quickest route to our own authentic happiness. And that is discovering who we are, separate from every expectation from the outer world — even from those who are most dear to us.
Without knowing you — inside and out — you won’t know what you need or want, you won’t be able to give yourself what you desire, and you won’t be able to tell those who love you how they can give to you, so that you can feel connected, receive.
Discovering you starts with returning to your instinctive and authentic self — knowing what you feel, what you think, what pleases your senses, and what you desire.
Knowing you is the foundation for everything. Yes, everything!
The Second Invitation
Standing for you means claiming what is yours.
When you know how to stand for you, you become your fiercest ally and protector.
We’ve been treated like second-class citizens — even by our own actions — for so long we’ve gotten used to putting our needs and wants second, or sometimes last.
Maybe you routinely choose to defer to other people’s wishes so that they can have what they want, while your needs and desires go unacknowledged and unmet.
While these may be acts of kindness or compassion, if you make it a habit or feel incapable of making another choice, before you know it you will forget that you deserve to have your own voice, speak your truth, claim space, and stand for what you desire.
When you know who you are and what you desire, you will reclaim parts of yourself you didn’t even know were missing.
Most women have no idea of the possibilities and opportunities waiting for them if they only uncover and claim what is theirs for the taking.
The Third Invitation
Seeing means accepting reality as it is.
When you have the courage to see and accept reality as it is, you fully embrace your truth and the truth of others.
It may seem obvious that accepting reality and embracing your truth is important, but these are hard-won skills that are easier said than done. When you aren't able to fully acknowledge or embrace your truth, or see reality for what it is, you will suffer.
The invitation to See is vital to creating the life you envision for yourself. Without knowing your authentic truth, you cannot speak it, or invite to you everything that is meant for you.
The Fourth Invitation
Speak means expressing your authentic truth.
It's one thing to know your authentic truth, but when you share your truth with another, you elevate your life and your relationships to whole new level.
The hidden magic of speaking your truth is that when you do, you feel more confident and more trusting in yourself as your fiercest ally. You also begin to attract to you everything that is meant for you.
With the foundation of returning to you and knowing your authentic truth, you know what needs to be spoken. Speaking is one of most important conditions for you to receive, because you effortlessly draw to you what is meant for you when you speak your authentic truth.
The Fifth Invitation
Give means giving to you — owning the power you have right now to manifest the desires of your heart.
Looking to other people — or to stuff or status — to make you happy never works. If you truly want contentment, joy, peace, and happiness you must take empowered ownership for creating it.
When you don't put your own oxygen mask on — in the form of high-quality and pleasurable self-care — you will not be able to offer to others the best you have to give.
When you're not filled up with your own self-care, your giving may even cost you in the form of exhaustion, depletion, resentment, and disconnection in your most important relationships.
This truth can be a tough pill to swallow. But if you don't take ownership of your happiness, who will?
The Sixth Invitation
To unveil is to reveal your mind, body, soul, and your desires.
Revealing your authentic self is the heart of vulnerability and intimacy.
Unveiling can sound a bit scary . . . and it sometimes is. Yet, without revealing who you are, it is impossible for you to experience the intimacy you long for.
With the foundation of returning and knowing who you are, and how to stand for yourself as your fiercest ally, you will know with whom, when, how and feel protected as you reveal you and experience the intimacy you long for.
Creating the life you envision for yourself and receiving what is meant for you requires vulnerability, and knowing how to "unveil" in its many forms.
The Seventh Invitation
Receiving is the essence of feminine power, and the foundation for offering your unique gifts to the world from a place of abundance — radiantly empowered.
Do you know how to balance giving and receiving?
Most women are (unknowingly) compulsive over-givers. We over-give in a misguided effort to connect with others.
Unfortunately, over-giving in the spirit of “helping” has the unintended consequence of pushing others away because it comes across as controlling, critical, or manipulative.
And if you count yourself as a woman who has a tendency to over-give, I’m guessing you are chronically angry. I know I am every time I fall into the over-giving trap.
The paradoxical truth is that learning how to receive is the fastest route to getting the connection you crave. Women who know how to receive exude confidence, pleasure, joy, and radiance — which invites people to give even more to them.
Sure, receiving is vulnerable and may make you feel out of control. It’s not politically correct and it may make you bristle, but the truth is that as a woman, receiving is your (forgotten) super-power.
When you know how to receive, you are whole, abundant, and radiant. And from this place of abundance and radiance, you have the power to offer the world what is uniquely yours to give.
And since you're still here, the Invitations are speaking to you — inviting you into a completely new way of being.
I'm so glad you're here, and I would love to share even more about what I've learned from my own journey through the 7 Invitations of The Radiant Threefold Path in the weeks ahead.
Are you ready to receive . . .
