Emergence is the act of becoming yourself.

The circus elephant is born and tied to a stake in the ground. It goes its entire life performing, and it understands its limits by that which is defined by the circus leader.
The elephant simply needs to walk, in any direction, and it would pull the stake out of the ground.
It can seem like the world wants you to become something else other than yourself. It can seem like the deck is stacked against you. It can seem, seem, seem. You are being perceived, perceived, perceived by illusions that you can dismantle, disarm, and overcome as you continue your journey into the unknown.
What does it mean to ‘step into your power’, as they say?
It means that today, right now, in this moment, I am this version of myself. In five minutes, I will have evolved into the next version of myself. I can place intention behind my evolution by making a declaration such as, “I will create a safe living environment for myself by February 1st.” 
I can look into the future, define the person I wish to become, and now I can step inside that frame, or, that context, and begin to embody who that person will be. 
It feels similar to trying on a new outfit for the first time. It can feel awkward, look awkward, and result in inner feelings of doubt and uncertainty. I have come to expect those things as normal.
Exercise
The intention of the Essence Exercise is to create an opportunity for you to raise your self-awareness. I want you to ask three people closest to you, “When I enter a room, what do I bring with me?” This is about your essence - the energy you bring into the spaces you exist within.
To RSVP for the upcoming Meet & Greet on Thursday, January 20th at 7pm EST please follow the link below.
Thank you.

At this time, my intention is to use this newsletter to share my evolution, and showcase projects on the horizon.
-
I am a peacemaker originally from the USA and currently living in Europe.
-
I am motivated by opportunity, connecting with others, conflict resolution, and cross cultural collaboration.
-
I like to be with people. I like to do things with different types of people. And I love to make things that help people. More recently, I’m also finding joy being with myself, doing things myself, and making things for myself.
-
I am fascinated by compassion, temperance, and imagination. I am curious what my life (and the world) would be like with more of these things.
-
Professionally, I have been an Experience Designer for 13 years. I design products, run programs, and provide consulting to governments, universities, and startups.
-
Basically, I help people make things … that help people make things … that help people. I work with clients 1:1 both in-person and virtually. If I were to express my most passionate work it would be my devotion to:
-
Running incubators that develop future peacemakers who launch peacemaking ventures from anywhere in the world. These experiences are for creating ventures that make peace with one’s self, with different cultures, and with our Mother Earth.
