Good morning everyone, and welcome to NF Learning Lab, where together, we access our innate, iNtuitive wisdom as unique and self-valuing women, and share who we are becoming in a safe, sensitive community.
You may have noticed, that for the past couple of months, our top-of-call content has related directly to the first set of NF Learning Lab tools, the S-set. Hopefully each of us have been inspired to revisit the S tools if we haven’t worked with them recently, because since the spring of this year, they have been revised, based on the fresh insights we’ve been gaining from our weekday iNtuitive Conversations calls. We are really beginning to get to the heart of what it means to be rare, complex, creative iNtuitive-Feeling type women.
On last week’s NF Learning Lab call, we highlighted the quality of being risk-ready from our Sparkle Dna tool kit, and we cross-referenced that quality with some of our shared, core values, which include; authenticity, originality, truth, meaningful life, deep connections, altruism, empathy, depth of meaning, and emotional intensity.
This week, we highlight the Sparkle Dna quality of being self-directed, and we’re going to cross-reference it with some other values that we all seem to share as iNtuitive-Feeling type women. Those values are; being self-defined, self-determined, and even self-evolving.
Let’s face it, we like to evolve! We might even say we ‘live to evolve’! We are seekers, which means that we’re not content to grow and change accidentally, unintentionally, or by default! We are pro-active self-developers who seek out data points from a myriad of systems, theories, concepts and abstractions to help us define, develop, and continually tweak who we are with conscious intention. We often tend to be more interested in “who we are BECOMING” … physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually … than we are in “what we are DOING in the work-a-day world.” And …. we might ask, why is that? What’s going on with our need to take our evolution into our own hands?
The answer takes us right into the basics of what we’re discovering together …. that we are highly complex, multidimensional beings … much more so than we ever imagined. As such, we sense from a fairly early age, that we are ‘different’. In fact, most of us are TOLD in one way or another, that we are different. The lucky ones among us might feel special, but for many being different comes with hurtful taunts and judgments from others. Or it comes from what our intuition makes of more subtle, passive indicators from a Sensing-majority world that cannot readily perceive, much yet fully appreciate our true value. So, it falls to us, as individuals, to discover and champion our true value, ourselves. Fortunately, we are very resourceful and creative, and we have the natural ability to do this. Let’s move on to our journal prompts to discover more about what it means to be self-directed as an iNtuitive-Feeling type woman.
