It seems simple enough. Make a decision and take the necessary action.
Yet, here you are. Staring down 2 very different paths. Not quite sure which way to turn.
I’ve so been here.
So what do you do?
Let’s take a look…
Choose option #1: Do Nothing.
Sure, this is an option but one I wouldn’t suggest. Why?
Because let’s face it, doing nothing will get you nowhere…fast!
This option keeps you stuck on the “hamster wheel of life.” You might be running but it’s in place and you never actually get anywhere.
Unfortunately I have seen too many people stuck in this space.
Think about it…you probably know someone too.
Someone who is waking up in the morning, going to a job they hate, going through the motions for a paycheck that pays their bills but gives them very little bliss.
This makes my heart heavy.
This is NOT a place I want to see anyone. Including you.
I believe that people settle here because it’s comfortable, safe, easy.
But it does’t really lead anywhere. So if you’re looking to go on a journey, option #1 is NOT for you.
But if you want some adventure…I suggest you choose going left or right.
Either direction could be amazing. The key is to choose one and put your faith into that choice.
And honestly, to just start. To allow space for the unknown to unfold.
That doesn’t mean you should walk down the path blindfolded. Having a loose plan is important. That is how you’re going to bring your ideas to life but do NOT have every minute and every detail scheduled.
You will be disappointed (because things never work out as planned) and that doesn’t leave any room for spontaneity, which in my eyes is the spice of life.
The best part of the journey are those surprises that you never see coming.
Woo-Hoo! I have some very exciting news to share with you…
About a year ago I decided to write a book where all the proceeds would go back to a charity helping women rise from the ashes after being abused and/or raped.
At the time, I had no idea how it would turn out let alone be accomplished but I was determined to make it happen, come hell or high water. Of course, there were many bumps in the road. I’ll spare you the details.
Well, today I am happy to share that this book, now called Watch Her Thrive is ready and it is inspiring, empowering and filled with stories around hope, courage and strength that will literally have you in tears and laughter all at the same time.
Over the course of eighty-three essays, readers will find insight, stories, tips, and heartfelt emotions from unique women who have already found their own power, including best-selling authors, entrepreneurs making change in their industries, and visionaries whose missions revolve around serving.
This book is an enlightening journey that inspires change. I’m so proud of what we have done here.
It is truly a gift. For the reader. And for all the women it will help with the proceeds.
For the rest of the year, all the proceeds of Watch Her Thrive will go directly to Women for Women International…my nonprofit’s hand-selected charity.
Anything purchased in conjunction with the book, a percentage of those sales will go to The Watch Her Thrive Project, an organization build to help women who have suffered from rape and domestic abuse get back on their feet.
I’m often drawn to others who are very grounded, walk their talk and have a story to tell. That is definitely why I love Marita Rahlenbeck.
I had the pleasure of meeting Marita through a coaching program we were both taking. I was always in awe of her passionate insight and her ability to read through people’s energy.
She is truly a healer. You can see it in her heart and it radiates through her soul.
Let’s get to know her.
Tell me a little about yourself and your mission.
Since the mid 90’s I have been on a path of significant spiritual awakening. At the time, however, I was not as aware of my path as I am now. I experienced an internally loud desperation of wondering “IS THIS ALL THERE IS?”
On the outside it appeared as though I had it all (home in suburbs, two cars in the garage, married, a daughter)… Inside, though, I was unhappy. With that quiet unrest came a revolt, and that revolt took me from my marriage and my safe suburban rambler into the desert of the Unknown. This is where I found myself. And now, my mission is helping that quietly unhappy woman (man) who longs to find herself but doesn’t know how. She (he) is the one who finds her way to me.
The knowledge and tools I have gained over the years have been incorporated into my skill set and are called upon as needed.
I have studied many modalities: Reiki, Essential Oil Therapy, Cranial Sacral, Animal, Crystal and Energy Medicine, to name a few. My most recent path led to Higher Brain Living®. What I have realized is that as a species we are ready for (and need) something with the highest level of impact. HBL gives that impact because it can and does change the actual physiology of the brain. What that means to you is that the change you experience is anchored in your physiology which results in lasting, sustainable change and growth.
Why are you so passionate about this?
The world is hurting, and the people in it are hurting. This hurt is so unnecessary. As I do my work and witness the breakthroughs, the relief, the joy, I am repeatedly reminded that this is my calling.
My job on this planet at this time is to give people the opportunity to step out of their unhappy routine, their robotic life and see the possibilities that when the Light shines on and in them, these possibilities are screaming to be let go and given birth to!
What I do is sacred as I mirror the Divinity of who you are back to you.
When did you realize you were destined to this important calling?
Three years ago. I was guided to undergo a complete rebrand, beginning the process of letting my 11 year old Honoring Earth company go by rolling it under Marita International, LLC. That is when I was shown a glimpse of the importance of working with people at the Soul level. As I listened to the still small voice of my guidance and began the process of this change I was to undertake, the magnitude, quite honestly, was still out of my vision. Now I know I am truly seeing and feeling the weight of responsibility that lies within my calling.
We are all birthed a little at a time. Each time a client experiences a shift or a life change they’ve been longing for, I am reminded of why I am here. What I’ve noticed is that Higher Brain Living has a life of its own! It is a dynamic, life changing way to step into your Divine Authentic Self with little effort. The process bypasses your ego where all doubt and negative self talk lives. Life organically grows, shifts, changes, blossoms. Indeed, life changes without even asking!
What are you currently working on?
Expanding my HBL practice because this work is too important! I am also connecting with my colleagues who are National Presenters, open to traveling the country to assist with presentations, and continue to look for people who are called to be change agents during this exciting time of humanity’s evolution to join in on the next facilitator training later this year.
If you had to inspire us in just 2 sentences or less, what would you say?
You have gifts and value within you along with the spark of the Divine. When you need support on your internal spiritual journey, I will help you.
How can we support you?
Make the choice to support yourself and others by organizing a group of people on your team, in your community or organization to come together to experience a Higher Brain Living presentation and live demonstration in your area. Explore opportunities for the possibility of a new career or integration of HBL into your current career or for your own personal growth process. Please feel free to call (952-215-2161) or email me to coordinate an event in your community. You may also visit my website www.MaritaInternational.com.
