Pace Smith is a pathfinding coach, a teacher, a speaker, and a writer. She helps sensitive, spiritual, non-conformists follow their hearts to a wild crazy meaningful life.
In today’s interview, Pace teaches us how to tune into our heart and be abler to listen to its guidance. Pace explains how, once we know the direction our heart wants us to go, we can chose a path that is in alignment with our true purpose, and find peace and joy. She also gives us some step-by-step guidance on how to start tuning in, and how to make the transition to living a free and wonderful life.
True passion is water, not fire. Fire is going to burn out, and its going to burn you out.
Whatever you want to give to the world, you’ve got to give it to yourself first.
Once you are in alignment (with your heart), then you have some flexibility in how you chose to express that.
My advice is to do a tiny version of something before you do a small version of anything. You want to do a small version of something before you do a medium version, etc. Test out what it would be like to run your own business first, before you quit your job. You will learn so much more from trying it out on the side then you would thinking about it.
The biggest mistake people make when thinking about quitting their jobs is that they believe that thinking about it is useful. The only thing that is useful is to experiment.
There is a specific technique I teach called the “Heart Compass Technique”, which is: you sit down, you do a few mites of spiritual practice, and then you ask a “yes” or “no” question. You then notice how your heart responds. That is going to be the key of being able to access that guidance at will.
Its basically divine guidance and it does not always happen on command. It serves the highest good, and not “whatever I think is good” or “whatever my client thinks is good”. It also does not serve my business.
I always ask my client a bunch of questions “What problem are you trying to solve?” “How do you want to feel?” Maybe you can feel that way without having a bunch of money. Questioning those assumptions is actually a good place to start.
