Some days the Universe provides for you in ways that profoundly shift and open up who you are for the world. It allows for a glimpse past the now and into your potentiality. Today was one of these days for me. To say that it has been overwhelming and profound is an understatement. I met with a friend today who pointed out areas in which I had profoundly shifted his life, how it opened up his sense of empowerment and excitement, and he shared tools from his 40 year career in consulting to tie together loose ends for me that I had no idea could even be connected. My BEing with him was an awareness shift that simplified and modified my life path- yet solidified the next few steps in my life plan. I have always felt that with my perspective I have great gifts to share with the world. I have always known that I am a part of a massive movement to spread love, authenticity and abundance to the masses. A voice and leader for massive paradigm shifts and revolutionary ideas. A gift for helping others out of their own way and into the light of their truth. Sharing their innate soulful existence with the world. As I throw myself into the slingshot of life, trusting and allowing the Universe/God/Creator/Source to provide for me my gifts unfold. Sometimes I’m so blind to them that I have to be shown by others. My heart is wide open today. The gratitude that I have has literally had me crying for a few hours now. I wish for you all the profound healing that comes with this. For as terrifying as it is for me to be exceptionally bold, fully authentic I am equally as calm, centered and present. My life has entered a level that I cannot explain. Major processing is happening before the continuing evolution of Tatum will be ready to share. I love you. Me
I am here to do my part. Just as all of you. When you look within, past your shadow, you’ll see the beautiful glimmer of your heart. You’ll be so grateful for all of life’s lessons, no matter how harsh, because you realize it’s all part of a bigger plan. YOU are part of a bigger plan. And all there is left to do is follow your heart and take a step forward into your greatness. It’s not that hard. Getting to this point is the most challenging- but it’s possible, and it’s so exceptionally freeing. At some point you get to a precipice where you just can’t be who you were anymore. You can’t play small anymore. You can’t hide your truth anymore. You can’t do what most people do- giving just enough. You know, just enough to where you think you can convince yourself that you’re on purpose. Just enough that you’re mildly uncomfortable but not enough to be fully seen. Just enough that you’ll probably still stay friends with that person from a lifetime ago who has no idea who you really are but you wouldn’t want to hurt their feelings by sharing your TRUTH. Let it the fuck go. Step into your greatness. You cannot serve the world if you do not serve yourself. You are here, on the edge of possibility and ultimate life creation. Just go for it! If you have the idea- you are ready. This was spoken to me a few years back and it so resonated. If your limiting beliefs are what is holding you back- then you know exactly what to work on first! What a gift! Trust that you are here for a reason. Trust that no one can do it better than you can. Trust that the Universe/God/misc higher power will provide. Because I trust you, and I can’t wait to meet the fully self expressed version of your gorgeous luscious soul. ✨
The truth is that you create the life you want. Sure life can throw you a wrench, but you always choose how you respond to any situation that arrives. Like attracts like and you have to take responsibility for YOU. Your thoughts, your energy, who you are- and how you show up for the world.
I have spent the last few years intentionally taking risks to carve out and create the lifestyle that I wanted.
First I moved to a beautiful location with the type of people and vibration that I wanted to be around.
Then, since I had to support myself, I got a job. But not any job. I promised myself that I would never go back to bartending and serving- that I was beneath no one, and would no longer work a job where even though I would make triple the money, I would not allow people treat me as less than. So I got a job that paid little, but was philosophically congruent and allowed me to eat 100% organic.
Then I moved across town so my expenses were less and I had more ‘play money’ to invest into growing myself, learning and working on my projects.
Then I realized that I needed more time for myself to stay grounded- and how essential this was so that I could stay connected to Source and on purpose.
So I cut my hours almost by half. I spent six months with this ‘baby step’ into my dreams. And even with all of this extra time, it became apparent that it was essential for me to up my level of self care and that that was the real key 🔑
And even after all of that- it wasn’t enough. Having one foot in was not enough. And one day I knew what I had to do- and I he hawed about it for another three weeks.
You know when it’s time to step into the life you were meant to have when the life you are in is more uncomfortable than radically changing your entire life.
So I threw it all up in the air- said fuck it- and put notice in at my job.
And here we are 😊 One week since my last day. One week fully on purpose. Three days of intense processing, and four days of bliss and excitement. I’ve gotten more done in four days than in the last four months.
Can’t wait to see what happens next.
…But How Long is YOUR Recovery Time?
Haters are showing up in unique and interesting ways for me 🙂 While most would probably get super upset, I actually get a little bit giddy about it. It is a chance for me to reassess where I am at, and make sure that my boundaries are well defined. I knew that once I began putting myself out there in a big way, that it was likely they would come, but what I find incredibly interesting is HOW they are arriving. My awesome haters aren’t coming to criticize my business (at least not yet! lol), they are showing up in a non-related context in which I made one of the least charged and most neutral Facebook comments ever. It just goes to show that trolls make no sense, and seriously have nothing better to do than hate on people.
Giving that this week’s theme is massive THANKS! I am going to start by thanking my lovely haters and sharing a few awesome tips to deal with them without losing your mind or dignity.
- It’s definitely THEM and not you. This doesn’t mean that you are not responsible for your life actions and repercussions, but that just because someone takes issue with something does not mean it now has to become YOUR issue. People are highly sensitive nowadays and easily offended. And most of all they LOVE to assume.
- Don’t respond. It doesn’t matter if what they say is right/wrong/vicious/lies/etc. It fuels their fire, and give them more power. That is what they crave. They want to prove why they are right and you are wrong. So not worth playing that game!
- Turn it around to fuel YOUR fire! Thanks guys! I was debating what to write my blog post on, now I know 😉
- Munch on what they had to say, and see if it rings true for you. There is something to be said for constructive criticism. Read a few comments, mull on it for a few minutes and see if they A. Understood what you were saying in the first place (likely NO), and B. Have their own naughty agenda. If they are giving real feedback, then take the time to thank them and move on.
It does not have to be any more complicated than this. You can let them ruin your day, or you can mull it over and let it go. How quickly you are able to feel the emotions and move through it will let you know how you are doing on your own personal growth journey. Thanks haters for bringing me many lovely signs from the Universe today that I am on the right path.
Hello my loves!
I am absolutely stoked to be writing to you today about 1111! As some of you may know, today is HUGE for humanity! This is a new moon in Scorpio, and coincides with the magical numbers 11/11. I am not going to pretend that I know heaps about astrology, numerology and the cosmos, but I do love to read about it and watch videos. What I do know to be true is that I have felt the energies and shifts coming for awhile now. Today is a very big day for manifesting the abundance that you truly desire in life. This could be anything from bringing in your Twin Flame to manifesting wealth (whatever this means for you!)
The Universe always provides and all you have to do is let go and allow the Universe to flow through you. This can be much easier said than done, but luckily today it should be easier than other days. One of the easy ways that I let go is through Meditation (I highly recommend Guided Meditations on YouTube by Michael A. Jacobs). If difficult emotions come up for me I tend to write. Then I go to my room, maybe light some sage and have quiet time. I write out everything that I am feeling, acknowledge it, and then burn it. I allow it to release into the Universe.
Letting go is such an important part of manifestation- you must close the door to the past to move through and towards the future. Once you have taken time to heal and put the past in the past (where it belongs!), then you are ready to manifest. Only you truly know what works for you. If you are new to learning about the Law of Attraction then trial out different ways to see what works for you. I plan on spending a nice chunk of time today writing out exactly what I would like for my future.
It is also important to take time to say Thank YOU! Not just because it is Thanksgiving month, but gratitude acknowledges the role that the Universe has played in your life and opens up doors/windows towards more abundance. Stay open to receiving and allow for surprises 🙂
In honor of gratitude, I would like to thank one of my biggest supporters and an amazing friend Albert Qian. I have attached audio from our Blab interview below.
Thank you all for joining me on this journey of self discovery and creation.
