We had the good fortune of connecting with Jamie Wozny and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jamie, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I see risk taking more as a heart following. To the outside eye it can look crazy and wild and silly or illogical to some but to me “risk” when used in an intuitive way is a deeper pull of the soul. A jumping off point. A feeling of- I can’t do this anymore. Not from the level of the frantic brain but more from a level of deep knowing. A sense, a feeling, an image, a sound, a hunch that it’s time to do something bold. It doesn’t come from the level of our anatomy. It comes from the level of the soul. Those that follow the heart, the soul to me are seen as risk takers. There is more of a safety in it when we see it this way, like, “Oh, I’m just following my soul path. I’m safe there. I”ll be met there. There are safety nets from the Divine there.” Risk taking in this sense for me has been everything. Doing things in a non conventional way, following signs, readings, deeper inner guidance, dreams and the like has led me to new energy, expansion, healing. I take baby steps in a new direction one thing at a time. These little risks. I’ve been able to grow and open up following these deeper pulls of the heart by first learning their language and then trusting they were safe and joyful to follow.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My business is all about reminding people of their Truth. I sit with these incredible souls from all walks of life and listen to them as we blast through their pain and remind them of who they are. My sessions are healing, clarifying, validating and offer soul led guidance. I bring clients from their heads to their hearts. I use coaching, intuitive readings, divine healing and energy healing to assist us. I keep it real, authentic and light hearted and I care deeply about all I work with. I’m so proud of how much my healing business has grown in the last few years. I had no idea how to start a business. My gift was the healing and teaching but I’ve allowed myself to be uncomfortable and showed up even when I was terrified or confused. And day by day I grew confidence as well as students. The amount of people who are thankful for their lives changing makes me so proud I’ve followed my heart. Getting where I was today was challenging but not in a suffering way. Just in a way of embarking on something totally new and in the unknown. I’ve had to try many things and see what worked and what didn’t. I had to allow myself to be messy and imperfect and confused. Just showing up and doing it was huge. And then you learn from that. And then you perfect from there. But you are always learning. I’ve allowed myself to cry, to hate it, to love it and just plain old keep going and be guided by a higher love. It’s beautiful what happens when you intend for something. Pray to have whatever shows up in the way to heal and just follow the deeper nudges. Life has your back. A lesson I’ve learned along the way would be to decide how you want your business to be off the bat. What brings you the most joy and share that. Don’t try to figure out what others want. Yes we are being of service but when you follow your heart and share what lights you up that’s HOW you are most of service. Because you are happy and in your truth and others feel that. I see many people get in their heads to try to “figure out” what is best. Instead of trusting that you are inspired and joyful about things for a reason. That’s your direct connection with your divine self saying, go there, do this, share this! Stay true to this. Even as others come and ask for something else, create strong boundaries and trust in yourself and your path. When you put a stake in the ground with, “this is what I want to do and this is what I offer because I’m worthy and deserving” you’ll attract those clients and opportunities. And don’t be afraid to be imperfect and human. Mistakes happen and are normal and just because it feels uncomfortable doesn’t mean to stop. The other thing is that it’s ok to be good at something and let it go. Thank if for what it’s taught you. I used to be so confused because I’m lucky do many things and people loved my essential oil teachings but one day I realized, I’m good at this but its not my future path so I had to lay it to rest to create space for more of my heart path to show up. I’ve had to change my brand so many times. It’s always a work in progress. In the healing world it reflects where you are in the moment and you are always evolving. I’m finally at a place where I feel excited and hopeful and clear on how I want to help people. I love helping others plug back into their soul. I love to assist others craving healing, authenticity, truth, love and purpose. We all matter.
