Though I’ve never met Bec Van Leeuwen in person, I’ve watched with quiet admiration as she’s created her heart-centred, soul-aligned biz — Soul Sister Circle — an organisation that creates opportunities for women to come together to learn, be inspired, forge meaningful friendships, and create powerful collaborations.
You only need to glance briefly at the work Bec is doing to know that she is in tune, connected, and committed to her soul’s work. My assumption was that Bec had always been this way. So, when Bec began sharing her story with me, I was shocked to find someone whose past story was just like mine.
Her need to control, her struggle with letting go, her unattainable desire for perfection, her fear of letting herself truly feel, defining her own self-worth and identity by her job title. I felt the grip around my heart release slightly as she shared all this with me. Finally, here is someone who has been entrapped in her own struggle cycle of control and fear but has somehow managed to break free. Here is someone who has been in the trenches, doing the work, learning the lessons, making the mistakes and learning again. Here is someone who is human, real, just doing the best she can at each moment in time.
Bec’s journey is refreshing because there’s no overnight success story and no false pretence that she’s got it all figured out. It was only through her learning how to get out of her own way, finally let go and give herself permission to fully express herself and her soul’s desires in this world, when the magic truly started to happen.
If you feel lost or like a slow learner or like you’re behind every body else in this journey of self-awakening and transformation, this is THE story for you.
You’re in for a real treat.
