00:00:48.840 --> 00:00:54.120

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: i'm a changemaker i'm someone who has struggled with these things that's actually why I created this system.


00:00:54.420 --> 00:01:02.520

00:01:47.250 --> 00:01:52.710

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So here whoops wrong one let's go back alright So yes, Inner Work for Greater Good.


00:01:53.040 --> 00:02:01.860

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And and it's all about really trying to make a bigger difference in the world, but by doing it from the inside out as opposed to just focusing on.


00:02:02.130 --> 00:02:07.290

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: How can I make it, how can I do this and do that for other people, it really is about being.


00:02:07.560 --> 00:02:14.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That presence being that light in the world in fact that's why I call my work ChangeLight it's about being the light of change.


00:02:14.910 --> 00:02:31.410

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That our world so desperately needs not faking it not acting like he's got it together, but really being it and radiating it so, as you know, if you've seen some of my previous episodes i'm talking about your exPowers that shouldn't be doing that.


00:02:33.690 --> 00:02:45.960

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Your emPowers your Guiding Star and your Truth, these are the basic elements of the ChangeLight System that it's all about that we've got this Truth inside, you have a Truth.


00:02:46.200 --> 00:02:53.730

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That you were here to live, that you are here to actualize bring into reality and so it's all about.


00:02:54.090 --> 00:03:03.870

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Like like revealing that Truth within that Truth within you being that presence that you're here to be being who you are, as well as evolving.


00:03:04.050 --> 00:03:11.580

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: into who you're here to become and so it's a matter of clearing those exPowers and bringing forward more of those emPowers.


00:03:11.880 --> 00:03:20.880

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And then bringing forward also your Guiding Star, which is the subject of today's episode we're nearing the end of my giving you like the nuts and bolts of the change lead system.


00:03:21.330 --> 00:03:30.600

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: you're Guiding Star and ultimately it's about getting to your Truth, because that is the most at peace and most empowered you can possibly feel.


00:03:31.290 --> 00:03:46.590

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: that's what it's all about So who is your Guiding Star your Guiding Star, as I define it is the vision of you, the vision that you carry inside of you as your optimal self.


00:03:47.190 --> 00:04:06.960

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It embodies who you are, how you feel and what you do when you are fully living your Truth so here's basically what your Guiding Star is imagine cool you would be without any insecurities any fears.


00:04:07.530 --> 00:04:13.860

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Without any of those things that feel like they get in the way of truly being the presence that you know you can be.


00:04:14.280 --> 00:04:31.110

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Who would you be without all of that stuff that gets in the way not only that let's say you're without those things, who would you be if you were also living in full alignment fully aligned with who you know you are.


00:04:32.160 --> 00:04:47.550

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and actually becoming who you are here to be so really your Guiding Star is that inner vision that you carry or inner it's like the embodiment of you.


00:04:48.330 --> 00:05:04.680

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Living your Truth feeling completely free of fears completely empowered completely like your fullest brightest most radiant wisest happiest most at peace with yourself most joyful.


00:05:05.130 --> 00:05:20.850

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: like this is what you're Guiding Star is, it is the embodiment of you living your Truth so as I often say when it comes to your Guiding Star there's a reason why we have an inner Guiding Star and i'll tell you the story about how I discovered mine.


00:05:21.600 --> 00:05:32.280

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But the reason why we have a Guiding Star is this one thing to kind of know that you have a Truth and maybe have sort of certain nudges this way or that way that you feel are coming from your Truth.


00:05:33.030 --> 00:05:41.610

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: or really stepping into you know, taking certain actions that you know that, like you just know like this is what you're meant to do.


00:05:42.210 --> 00:05:50.250

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: This is the direction you're meant to take this as a decision you're meant to make, as you know that on some level it is aligned with your Truth.


00:05:50.850 --> 00:06:02.790

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But the thing is, it can make it so much easier in so many ways, when you actually like have a vision when you're like oh that's what I look like.


00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:12.660

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: When i'm fully living my Truth that's how I behave when i'm fully optimized those that's how I think about things.


00:06:12.960 --> 00:06:25.800

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: that's how I respond as opposed to react that's how I respond to situations and so your inner Guiding Star is basically like your optimal self and like how you show up in the world.


00:06:26.100 --> 00:06:32.070

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And what are the types of choices that you make or how do you respond to certain situations.


00:06:32.310 --> 00:06:44.010

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And oftentimes you know, sometimes it can be similar to how you are doing it right now, but a lot of times it's not because really the your Guiding Star is that optimal version of you it's not affected by insecurities.


00:06:44.250 --> 00:06:56.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: or fears or you know and anything that tends to get in the way of US truly showing up as our fullest selves so that leads me to, I want to show you this next.


00:06:58.080 --> 00:06:58.770

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: This next.


00:07:00.270 --> 00:07:10.800

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: slide So what is it that you're Guiding Star does right, how can it serve you, you know Okay, so I was Guiding Star yeah but What can it do for you it's the coolest thing.


00:07:11.280 --> 00:07:27.900

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So you're Guiding Star inspires and guides you to be and to become your optimal self so it's there as a source of inspiration for you so that you may kind of go well.


00:07:28.320 --> 00:07:32.100

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I I think I you know I sort of have some idea of like.


00:07:32.340 --> 00:07:41.610

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: What kind of Truth, I want to live, but when you are, you know, like maybe, what I want to do, but when you've got that vision in front of you, it can inspire you.


00:07:41.790 --> 00:07:51.480

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So that even at times when you think that I don't know really I don't know, could I be that person, yes, you can be that person, you can be that presence.


00:07:51.840 --> 00:08:04.410

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And that actually leads to the other thing one of the other things that you're Guiding Star does is that even in the darkest times your Guiding Star can light your way out of that darkness.


00:08:04.770 --> 00:08:19.590

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and give you the courage and conviction to emerge from that darkness, knowing that you can be that person living that life so This leads me to share the story of how I even discovered.


00:08:19.980 --> 00:08:23.070

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That, I have a Guiding Star that any of us have a Guiding Start.


00:08:23.730 --> 00:08:32.940

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So I went through I think i've mentioned this in previous show or several previous shows, I went through a really, really dark time in my life, a deep dark night of the soul.


00:08:33.330 --> 00:08:45.600

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And that that was back in like 2008 2009 I was severely depressed I was severely self loathing I hated myself, there were times when I wanted to end my life, I really did think about it.


00:08:46.200 --> 00:08:54.780

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Because I just didn't see a future everything in my life had collapsed the relationship that I thought was the one was gone the.


00:08:55.470 --> 00:08:59.970

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The vision that we had the thing that we were creating together gone.


00:09:00.180 --> 00:09:08.190

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It was just everything had been kind of building up to this wonderful yes and, finally, on my path and i'm finally going to make the difference that i'm here to make and with these people.


00:09:08.490 --> 00:09:16.860

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And then, it was just gone just completely fell apart, and so I fell apart as well, I fell into a deep dark depression.


00:09:17.160 --> 00:09:23.880

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and honestly I didn't know who I was because it was like up to that point, I thought I kind of thought I knew who I was and I sort of.


00:09:24.390 --> 00:09:32.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: thought I was a pretty good person, a good presence in the world, and you know, and I thought we were really making a difference, but that was all taken away, and it really.


00:09:32.760 --> 00:09:42.900

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It really honestly, the thing that I felt inside was it was like it was almost like the identity that I thought I was like the WHO, I thought was the Emily that is Emily.


00:09:43.650 --> 00:09:56.550

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Was was it was like that was just a scaffolding, in other words, something very like a rickety structure inside of me that when everything in my life collapses like that collapsed as well, and there was nothing.


00:09:57.480 --> 00:10:12.150

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Nothing no thing darkness no light no joy no sense of a future no sense of purpose and, if anything, I thought that all of that was just bs I thought that I, you know I thought.


00:10:12.330 --> 00:10:19.950

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: All of that's bs and that's all stuff that everybody makes up nobody really has a purpose we're just these like molecules floating in space and.


00:10:20.280 --> 00:10:25.800

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know, and I just really and I had no sense of connection with any any spirituality.


00:10:26.580 --> 00:10:31.890

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I didn't think that love was real I thought that people who said that they love me were just codependent.


00:10:32.250 --> 00:10:47.700

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: or they were you know faking it, I mean that was how self loathing I was that I didn't believe that anybody truly could care about me so that's just by way of saying that was the situation that I was in back in 2000 2008 2009 such a deep place of shame.


00:10:48.720 --> 00:11:01.050

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: here's The interesting thing, though, and this is where your Guiding Star comes in and I didn't realize this until years later, so during that time, as I was really struggling.


00:11:02.130 --> 00:11:04.020

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: At the same time.


00:11:05.220 --> 00:11:13.860

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Again, I only realized this in hindsight, but at the same time I kept seeing this like image of me.


00:11:15.450 --> 00:11:31.320

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Just radiant and happy and beautiful and you know slender and fit, of course, you know because that's what but I saw her and she was on a red carpet.


00:11:32.460 --> 00:11:39.450

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And she was like going into an event because the red carpet was obviously for an event and there were, I mean there were like cameras and stuff like that.


00:11:39.900 --> 00:11:52.440

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And she was wearing this white gown that's beaded and I think it was like off the shoulder is this beautiful white gown so like so elegant and so put together.


00:11:53.280 --> 00:12:04.470

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But also like so real, in other words she wasn't putting on an act it wasn't like oh hi yes hi no I mean she was just she so completely present.


00:12:04.920 --> 00:12:18.090

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so, real and so genuinely kind and compassionate but at the same time, so very strong on the inside, in other words like kind of compassionate but she's not a pushover.


00:12:18.750 --> 00:12:28.050

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But the point is that, when I was in that really dark place I kept seeing these this like flash like she she was just kind of there.


00:12:28.920 --> 00:12:36.450

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I remember knowing I don't know how i'm going to be her, but I just know i'm going to be her.


00:12:37.080 --> 00:12:45.120

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Or at least close to her right doesn't have to be exactly her, but it was like I know it, I know I can be her oh and, by the way to I saw her like.


00:12:45.360 --> 00:12:57.030

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: She was I knew that she was traveling the world I knew that she was speaking I knew that she was really making a difference in people's lives, so it was like I had a sense of what she was also all about and the impact, she was having.


00:12:57.810 --> 00:13:19.560

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so I just knew now, mind you, at the time I was severely depressed getting evicted from my apartment basically living on friends couches I was, I had no sense of like there was any purpose, I mean it was just a really bad place and yet, and yet at the same time there, she was.


00:13:20.790 --> 00:13:23.910

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And it was like that knowing.


00:13:25.140 --> 00:13:30.090

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That even despite everything else, and even despite looking at my whole.


00:13:30.750 --> 00:13:44.730

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Like the reality of my life, which was, I was not working, I wasn't doing anything of value and I was completely self emotionally self absorbed because I didn't have the bandwidth for anyone out anyone else, it was like I still knew.


00:13:45.240 --> 00:13:54.750

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I mean, so the reality was like there's no way, how are you ever going to be that person, but I knew I just knew I didn't know how but I didn't know how but I knew that i'd be her.


00:13:56.370 --> 00:14:06.960

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So cut to so then so, then I ended up creating the Drawing Out Process which i've mentioned and multiple episodes and then discovering exPowers and emPowers and I was feeling so much better so much better.


00:14:07.350 --> 00:14:09.900

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And i'm feeling so much lighter and so much more whole.


00:14:10.410 --> 00:14:20.190

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so here, I was like coming out of that darkness, but a big thing that helped me come out of that darkness was knowing I could be her so she was literally.


00:14:20.490 --> 00:14:33.270

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And and i'll tell you later I didn't talk I didn't call her Guiding Star I wasn't even really consciously aware of what was going on, only in hindsight, did I realized that she was the thing she like having her there was the thing that kept me determined.


00:14:34.380 --> 00:14:46.230

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: To get out of that darkness, knowing that on some level somehow I was going to be like that person so she fueled my courage and fueled my determination, even in the darkest period of my life.


00:14:46.980 --> 00:14:54.690

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So cut to a few years later, and I was I just think such a kind of an interesting story, so I struggled with health issues for a lot of years.


00:14:55.080 --> 00:15:05.130

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And 911 related I was a first responder at 911 spontaneous first responder at 911 and as a result, I ended up and I didn't really know this for like 14 years.


00:15:05.610 --> 00:15:13.650

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But what I was struggling with was chemical sensitivity that had formed during my time at ground zero when I was there.


00:15:14.160 --> 00:15:23.070

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And that chemical sensitivity it would like come and go, so it was always trying to I didn't understand what was going on, but what it would also do to my body is i'd get very depressed just.


00:15:23.700 --> 00:15:36.510

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I, and I couldn't stop crying so it happens massive crime fits and I get eczema all over my body like bloody horrible eczema all over my whole body, so it was pretty bad so it was like physical and emotional.


00:15:37.710 --> 00:15:41.610

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: State symptoms, that I was dealing with and i'd go into a really bad place and I couldn't work.


00:15:42.060 --> 00:15:53.460

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So I think it was like 2014 2015 and I was in one of those periods, where I couldn't work I could barely function my poor husband was having to carry so much of the load for both of us.


00:15:53.880 --> 00:15:59.220

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I was laying on the couch and I was bingeing on netflix and I was.


00:15:59.820 --> 00:16:08.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know just watching shows, because in documentaries, I was, I was kind of like well i'm going to sit here and binge i'll try to watch stuff that's like at least informative or educational so i'd sort of.


00:16:09.060 --> 00:16:15.120

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know, watch documentaries, but the point is I ended up watching this show called under the gun.


00:16:15.870 --> 00:16:29.970

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And under the gun was hosted by TIM gunn who is in project runway he was he used to be the mentor on project, one way runway if you've ever seen the TV show, and he says wonderful just wonderful precious man who's like so kind and so supportive and.


00:16:30.810 --> 00:16:40.020

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So he had his own show and part of the show it was designing if you're not familiar with the show it's really good it was about designing, but it was also about mentorship.


00:16:40.740 --> 00:16:49.050

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So he was not only not only were these fashion designers like designing their clothes and making these these clothes.


00:16:49.470 --> 00:16:56.940

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But also TIM was mentoring their mentors Okay, so he was teaching them how to be better mentors.


00:16:57.240 --> 00:17:06.150

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: To these fashion designers and these mentors were fashion designers themselves, some of them had already been on the show maybe they are I don't remember if they've all been on the show, but at least one of them, I remember.


00:17:06.450 --> 00:17:21.480

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: had been on the show before as a contestant so he's mentoring them so i'm watching this in my leg deep dark depressed state, and I just started bawling just bawling.


00:17:24.030 --> 00:17:24.450

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Because I.


00:17:25.530 --> 00:17:32.490

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: yeah that's what it looks like because I felt so lost and I felt so terrified.


00:17:33.120 --> 00:17:40.860

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I felt so out of control and powerless because of this health issue that kept coming and I didn't know how to stop it and I didn't know how to fix it.


00:17:41.160 --> 00:17:45.330

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And it completely just obliterated my ability to do anything.


00:17:45.720 --> 00:17:51.660

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And it was so frustrating to because again like on some level I kind of had this idea of I know who i'm here to be I know what I can do.


00:17:51.960 --> 00:18:02.730

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: wasn't doing any of that so it was incredibly painful and frustrating to be just laying there not doing a damn thing and feeling so worthless, so I started bawling.


00:18:03.870 --> 00:18:12.930

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I was like I need a mentor I did I was like I just suddenly me i'm like Do I need someone to me and I need someone.


00:18:13.470 --> 00:18:20.310

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know guide me, and you know, give me advice, and you know stuff like that I needed someone who could understand.


00:18:20.580 --> 00:18:36.600

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The vision that I had for myself and be able to support me in effecting that and I think it was also a sign of just have very alone, I felt in that sickness, I mean again my husband was being wonderful, but I just felt, you know that I didn't know how to get out of this.


00:18:37.680 --> 00:18:44.370

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So I laid there sobbing for a while and then finally i'm going to really start to think Okay, who could be my mentor.


00:18:44.760 --> 00:18:59.550

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Who could actually someone who gets the vision that I have in the work that i'm doing and could really be a great positive role model for me in someone who really understands the kind of level of impact, but I want to have in the leadership and the type of impact that I want to have.


00:19:01.200 --> 00:19:09.600

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I saw I really thought to myself, I was like I know I knew great people I mean I know great people but it just nobody came to mind as like Okay, yes, this is my mentor.


00:19:10.590 --> 00:19:22.350

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So, then, I was like well hmm if I can't you know, have an external mentor then maybe I don't know, maybe I can just sort of find an inner one.


00:19:24.990 --> 00:19:28.590

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And as soon as I said that it was like.


00:19:31.680 --> 00:19:32.700

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Just this like.


00:19:34.620 --> 00:19:40.800

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: like this presence just went like almost like i'm here and I heard Guiding Star.


00:19:41.820 --> 00:19:44.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It was just like boom and I was like.


00:19:46.260 --> 00:19:46.950

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: whoa.


00:19:49.020 --> 00:20:06.840

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Maybe that's it maybe it's like I have my own inner Guiding Star who can mentor me along the way you know until I find a mentor I actually could find one inside, I found one inside.


00:20:08.250 --> 00:20:17.340

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And it was amazing and as soon as I saw felt that it was, like all of a sudden all just made sense from that time, when I was really depressed.


00:20:18.210 --> 00:20:35.040

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It was like oh her oh it's her it's that woman me the version of me on that red carpet with that off the shoulder white beaded gown looking beautiful and radiant and happy it's like Oh, she is the one.


00:20:36.300 --> 00:20:56.190

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I realized that though she'd been there, the whole time she'd been there, the whole time and she been mentoring and trying to guide me all of those years I just hadn't fully recognized her and recognized her presence and honored what she'd been trying to do.


00:20:57.930 --> 00:21:00.720

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So this is all by way of saying.


00:21:01.260 --> 00:21:12.390

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: that we all have I discovered my own inner Guiding Star you have an inner Guiding Star inside of you, and she may not be looking like my like on a red carpet, with a white gown.


00:21:12.630 --> 00:21:23.100

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Yours may be laying on a beach in the Bahamas I don't know yours may be teaching children, you know doing any number of things, but the whole point of your Guiding Star.


00:21:23.610 --> 00:21:32.550

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Is that it is your optimal self who you're here to be That being said, let me just throw in there it's who you're here to be.


00:21:32.970 --> 00:21:44.520

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But it's not about like I have to be that person no it's not about if it creates anxiety inside of you then you're pushing yourself too hard you're pressuring yourself too much and i've made that mistake.


00:21:44.760 --> 00:21:53.610

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Because I started to think oh my God and start with do this and, like I didn't start with do that you know what I tried to live by my Guiding Star when, in reality, I wasn't emotionally aligned yet.


00:21:54.120 --> 00:22:03.690

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But the whole point is that that Guiding Star that you have inside of you is there to inspire and guide you to become that presence okay.


00:22:03.930 --> 00:22:14.490

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That presence in the world, so what do we mean by presence well the light that you radiate the energy that you radiate how people feel around you how you want people to feel around you.


00:22:14.790 --> 00:22:29.730

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: how you feel inside who you are without any insecurities or any fears totally knowing your Truth, knowing every step that you need to take that's in alignment with your Truth living it actually realizing your Truth.


00:22:30.120 --> 00:22:40.530

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So showing up as your fullest most empowered most at peace most complete whole self that is essentially your Guiding Star.


00:22:41.280 --> 00:22:49.380

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so that's the point of your Guiding Star, you have a Guiding Star, whether you realize it or not, and that's why I told that story about like.


00:22:49.770 --> 00:23:01.110

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I didn't even realize that I had this vision inside of me The other thing that can happen to, by the way, with your inner Guiding Star, is it sometimes we can have that image, but we dismiss it.


00:23:01.590 --> 00:23:05.790

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Because we think no there's no way that's not possible it's almost like an automatic thing to.


00:23:06.000 --> 00:23:14.040

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know, we don't even realize that that image is coming to us, or that voice, or whatever it, you know she's she's there, maybe yours might be a he or they I don't know.


00:23:14.490 --> 00:23:28.320

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But that presence that Guiding Star is showing up for you and you may also have an exPower, a mechanism that kind of dismisses it like no there's there's no way that that could ever happen, you know what yes, it can happen.


00:23:28.860 --> 00:23:39.060

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It can happen in fact I have never met a person who it when they've shared what it is that they want to do, or who they want to be, or the impact, for they want to have.


00:23:39.630 --> 00:23:48.060

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: No, it i've never heard anyone say anything that was just like truly impossible so, for example, i've never had anyone like what I like think about it it's like.


00:23:48.630 --> 00:23:51.900

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: If if someone says, well, I want to mine for gold on the moon.


00:23:52.830 --> 00:23:59.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Okay, I would say that's impossible because I don't know there's any evidence of gold on the moon, you see what i'm saying so talk about a moon shot right.


00:24:00.180 --> 00:24:11.550

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That most people's Guiding Star and the presence, they want to be is not is not out of reach it's entirely possible, but it really is all about.


00:24:12.030 --> 00:24:21.540

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Clearing those exPowers, bringing forward those emPowers because that's what your Guiding Star represents is you at your most at peace most empowered.


00:24:22.080 --> 00:24:29.490

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Fully living your Truth so whatever vision that you have of like I don't know why, but I just see myself doing this thing.


00:24:29.850 --> 00:24:41.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Trust it trust it and trust yourself and your ability to be that presence, because you were designed to be it.


00:24:42.150 --> 00:24:51.360

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You have everything you need all of the power, the wisdom, the traits the qualities, the whatever to be who you are here to be.


00:24:51.840 --> 00:25:03.090

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so that's what I really want to encourage you, is trusting that whatever that vision is of who you're here to be you can be that presence here's The other thing that's the thing about the Guiding Star.


00:25:03.720 --> 00:25:13.680

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That I found is it's less about I would say okay using mine as an example it's less about like the accoutrements of you know, like what she's wearing you know or.


00:25:14.370 --> 00:25:28.470

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: where she is and more about how she feels inside, so what I tend to do is I tune into my inner Guiding Star and i'll ask questions like sometimes if i'm trying to figure out.


00:25:28.920 --> 00:25:33.870

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You know sort through a problem or figure out how to a decision to make or how to respond to a situation.


00:25:34.230 --> 00:25:40.860

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: i'll ask what would my inner Guiding Star do, how would my inner Guiding Star feel, and so I can tune into.


00:25:41.160 --> 00:25:50.850

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Its this version of me, without any insecurities without any fears and I can hear her voice, too, sometimes she is that mentor for me, she guides me and she'll be like.


00:25:51.300 --> 00:26:01.470

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Like she's like I think i've said this in a previous episode, but it makes me laugh, because sometimes she's just so cut and dried she's just so practical she's just like so to the point and just cut through all the bs.


00:26:01.800 --> 00:26:08.070

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That i'm almost like whoa really like really I can do that or say that or and she's just like well why wouldn't you.


00:26:08.310 --> 00:26:16.260

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Like to her it's just will, of course, like this is what your Truth is saying, or that you know, this is what your this is, this is what you would do if you were living your Truth.


00:26:16.470 --> 00:26:20.610

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You wouldn't be caught up and all the insecurities you wouldn't be caught up and all the self questions.


00:26:20.880 --> 00:26:27.990

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You see, so that's also where the Guiding Stars like you can tune into your Guiding Star and also know how it feels to be your Guiding Star.


00:26:28.230 --> 00:26:36.720

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And that can make it easier to to therefore align your energies and align your feelings and align your perceptions with her or him or day.


00:26:37.380 --> 00:26:45.600

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: so that you can really be more quickly be that presence and live the Truth that you are here to live.


00:26:46.230 --> 00:26:53.040

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So I hope this has been and it's inspiring for you, I want to go back to sharing my screen because it's always i've got a little bit more to share.


00:26:53.880 --> 00:27:00.780

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So, say, what is your Guiding Star do, as always, your emPower your exPowers, I don't have much time to go through all this.


00:27:01.050 --> 00:27:04.950

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But the point is we've got your exPowers again the ChangeLight System.


00:27:05.250 --> 00:27:17.460

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And it's about working with all of these inner parts, so that you can fully fully fully live your Truth and be the brightest light and have the greatest impact, not just by what you do.


00:27:17.940 --> 00:27:33.150

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But by who you are because the presence, you are in the world can have an even greater impact, a lot of the times, more so than whatever activities you involved in when you can be that presence, when you can really.


00:27:33.630 --> 00:27:42.360

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: show up more and more as your guide and start living your Truth that's when you can truly truly change the world magical and wonderful ways.


00:27:43.020 --> 00:27:54.960

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So the change the system, as always, I like to share that the change like system includes these techniques that are all about drawing out and releasing those exPowers those struggles and our struggles.


00:27:55.350 --> 00:28:07.560

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and bringing forward you're empowered to also teach you how to bring forward that Guiding Star how to tune in and tap in and really work with that Guiding Star and asking questions.


00:28:07.890 --> 00:28:17.730

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And, and you know who what would My Guiding Star do is a really key question i've asked that question so many times what would My Guiding Star do and it's just such an interesting light.


00:28:18.180 --> 00:28:25.140

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: On it just it's like it just cuts to the chase rather than kind of going to war with my Guiding Star do Oh, she would do this.


00:28:25.650 --> 00:28:36.750

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Oh okay all right and here's The other thing again it's not like this do everything my guidance or says to do, I have to be My Guiding Star No, this is not about creating stress, maybe you're not ready.


00:28:37.080 --> 00:28:42.000

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: To take the step that you're Guiding Star will take that's okay.


00:28:42.270 --> 00:28:53.160

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Who are where you are, but the whole point is like that, whatever step or approach that you're buying start season fields and things like that's the optimal so you kind of want to go in that direction.


00:28:53.430 --> 00:29:02.970

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But ultimately is always important to honor where you are right now okay your Guiding Star is like the ultimate okay there's no no pressure here, this is not about like.


00:29:03.180 --> 00:29:15.780

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Forcing are pressuring yourself to be your your ultimate self but it's still at least knowing so that you can have a clear sense of like what choices to make what direction to take what steps to take etc what.


00:29:16.200 --> 00:29:24.630

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: What attitude to have how to respond in certain situations so that's what the ChangeLight System does this is what I teach, this is what I created.


00:29:24.810 --> 00:29:36.660

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And it's all about accelerating accelerating your ability to live your Truth achieve your optimum potential and do the greatest good that's why I call this inner work.


00:29:36.900 --> 00:29:44.280

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: for greater good, because it's all about we do that inner work, you can really have the greatest impact finally.


00:29:44.550 --> 00:29:51.390

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Where can you do the change like system in my community, I have a community that has a course go to Community that ChangeLight dot world.


00:29:51.660 --> 00:30:02.100

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it's a very it's a private Community where you can do this work, your Inner Work for Greater Good, and really you know connect with other people in the Community, I do videos every week I do.


00:30:02.370 --> 00:30:16.920

00:30:30.180 --> 00:30:36.660

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But really it's all about trying to teach you about the ChangeLight System so that you will learn what's going on inside of you.


00:30:36.960 --> 00:30:45.510

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And what it is that you need to work with heal clear bring forward in order to truly feel your most at peace or most empowering your optimal self.


00:30:45.780 --> 00:30:52.710

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: free of all those fears and blocks and traumas and triggers and wounds and all that kind of stuff that gets in the way and truly trusting.


00:30:53.070 --> 00:31:02.700

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: The design the design that you carry inside of you those emPowers who know your Truth and know what will bring you the greatest piece, and how to live that true.


00:31:03.000 --> 00:31:11.460

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So, and of course your Guiding Star which does that as well, and your Truth is your inner knowing of who you are and who you are here to be.


00:31:11.730 --> 00:31:20.850

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so, that is your compass in this lifetime, and I see it, is that's your only job your Truth, you have your own Truth, I have my own Truth.


00:31:21.120 --> 00:31:23.640

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And when we're living our Truth we're doing our job.


00:31:23.910 --> 00:31:37.830

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: we're doing our life's job and, to be honest with you, even though it can be really challenging to live your Truth, it can be scary for sure, because it does mean sometimes stepping out into you know zones where you risk getting criticized, or what have you.


00:31:38.100 --> 00:31:45.720

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But that's why it's also about doing that inner work so that you feel more courageous and more empowered and more light filled.


00:31:45.930 --> 00:32:00.930

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And it's just so much easier to actually do that to live your Truth, so that you can truly feel your most at peace and most empowered because that's really what it's about we live our Truth it's not always easy, but it is always worth it.


00:32:01.440 --> 00:32:10.440
