Pirate World or Purpose World? What Do You Choose?
I’m writing today about Pirate World versus Purpose World. If you’ve never heard me talk about this read on! I want you to know what our philosophy is and what our unique approach is in Soul’s Calling® Coach & Facilitator training. You see our bigger mission is to facilitate the renewal of the world, the escape from Pirate world and the creation of a world powered by purpose. Our spring training is open for applications right now, and my intention here is to share more of our underlying philosophy so that you’ll know if this is training is right for you.
Luckily, I never fit in. I’m a Black woman who was raised in a white society. So I felt the pain of being ignored and being undervalued. As I’ve shared before, one of my own personal dark nights of the soul was my catalyst for creating my own body of work and leaving Pirate World.
I think that the world is at a shift point and because we are having such a collective dark night of the soul, renewal and transformation is possible. But we are stuck in Pirate World – where accumulating loot and power over others is the only goal. And if we stay stuck in Pirate World, no renewal will happen, and the world will slowly erode.
Part of the problem is that we’ve been programmed by our society to see Pirates as romantic, swashbuckling, strong independent thinkers. That’s the big illusion. Pirates have only one intention – to get – more loot and more power over people. Pirates, who put their flag up on foreign lands, claim the land, enslave the people and take the rich resources. Pirates, who believe that women are the prize and Black people are the workers never the leaders. Pirates, who have created and maintain an invisible caste hierarchy where they are at the top and everyone else is assigned a role to maintain their power. (Read Isabel Wilkerson’s brilliant book Caste, The Origins of Our Discontent, for more on this.)
But I have a new vision for the world. And it’s the one that so many of us are being called to create right now. I call it Purpose World. In Purpose World every living being is important and has a purpose and adds beauty to the world. Every living being has value and matters. Purpose World is a world that is powered by purpose, not Pirates.
In Purpose World, no one is pretending to be who they are not. It’s inconceivable. We are all being who we were meant to be. And we are thriving and growing. We are interdependent and proud of that. Each child knows that their real job in life is to be who they are, and our educational, business, spiritual instruction and parenting systems are all designed to help people grow into who they were meant to be. When we do that we’ll also do the work that we were meant to do. And when everyone does that, we’ll drop our Pirate World programming and find our freedom.
And the freedom to be who we were born to be, is our birthright – the birthright that Pirate World has taken from each of us.
Which brings us back to right now. What can we do, right now, to shift from Pirate World to Purpose World?
To get out of Pirate World, you have to see and claim what you’re blind to about yourself – your gifts, your talents, your energetic signature, your perspective, the thread of your unique purpose that is woven throughout your life, everything about you that you’ve disowned or kept hidden because of your Pirate World programming. I call that your unique genius. And then you’ve got to create your life & work by using your unique genius as the core and central element.
It’s hard, though not impossible to do this alone. It takes someone else to help you see your blind spots and to guide you through the process. That’s why I created the Soul’s Calling® Coach & Facilitator training. So many people need this help, but they don’t know who can help them. Soul’s Calling® Coaches & Facilitators help people to unlock and claim their unique genius. Our new Spring 2021 training group is open for application NOW.
This is not your traditional life coach training. Yes, you learn the basics, questioning, active listening, detaching from limiting beliefs, but you learn something that no other training teaches – how to unlock a person’s unique and often hidden genius –the gifts, talents, energetic signature, perspective, the thread of unique purpose that is woven throughout your life, and every difference that you’ve disowned or kept hidden because of your Pirate World programming.
And you learn the Soul’s Calling® Roadmap Coaching Process. This coaching process is one where you coach or facilitate groups, to help people discover and claim their genius. Our goal as Soul’s Calling® Coaches is not to help people manage their mindset, achieve life & work goals or to heal from trauma – our goal is to help people stop pretending to be who they are not and start being who they are. We do that by helping people to unlock and use their unique genius – often by creating their work or a passion project. Here's what I've learned, when you unlock and use your unique genius you HEAL. You heal the lineage that came before you and you heal the lineage that comes after you, because you are finally claiming who you were meant to be!
It took me over 25 years to create this training. Every single time I got closer to it, I was sideswiped by a new shiny object in Pirate World that took me off my path. And sometimes, Pirate World was cloaked in spiritual clothing. Initially, I wanted this unlock your unique genius work to exist somewhere else, to be part of an advanced degree, or part of another training program. But – every time I tried to push, encourage some other institution to include this genius work in their training, they wouldn’t, so I finally got the hint. This is my work to create and offer.
It isn’t a degree. It isn’t International Coach Federation (ICF) certified training. In fact, it doesn’t fit in any of the boxes that Pirate World wants us to check off. What it does do, is teach you how to help people stop pretending to be who they are not and start being who they were meant to be.
As a Soul’s Calling® Coach or Facilitator, you teach people how to stop trying to fit into Pirate World, how to excavate their truth under all of society’s programming, how to unlock and claim their unique genius and how to create their work or their passion project.
And you do this with a like-minded group of women, in a sisterhood, and you can use all of our comprehensive tools, once certified or create your own system if that’s your soul’s calling. And you get mentored because this program starts with YOU. We don’t assume that you’re clear on your calling. You’ll gain the clarity and confidence about your calling too!
So…….if you want to contribute to creating a new Purpose-powered world where freedom is each person’s birthright, where we ALL matter and have value, where you get to focus on what people do right, and how amazing they are – instead of what is wrong with them and needs fixing…
So…….if you want to finally use all of your genius and make the contribution you know that you were born to make and do your part in re-inventing the world, apply for Soul’s Calling® Coach & Facilitator training NOW.
If you see the genius in others and want a career that fully utilizes this gift, then Soul’s Calling® Coach & Facilitator training is perfect for you.
