Honouring Your Callings + Desires

Navigating Your Career Transition To Find Your Soul Aligned Career

August 4, 2020

Career transitions can be messy.


When you’re changing jobs, switching industries, taking a sabbatical, deciding to start a business, pausing to raise a family….it can bring up a lot of stuff. 


Questions like:


Who are you really?

Are you doing what you’re meant to be doing?

Is your next step really congruent with who you are?

Are you making the “right” choice?


Ultimately career transitions are about so much more than just your career. Transitions are about you, the woman. The individual. 

Finding a new career that’s aligned to who you are and financially viable requires a unique combination of soul searching and decision making power. 


This is exactly the work I love to do with my clients! 


In this week’s blog, I wanted to share an interview I recently did with Jenna Ward, Founder of The School of Embodied Arts.

In the interview we talk about:


  • Our journey’s into our own Soul Aligned Careers
  • Whether there is one “perfect” thing you’re meant to do
  • What your Soul Gift is and how to illuminate yours
  • Discerning between staying in an “economically sound” job during these times or listening to your heart + body
  • What to do if you’ve been putting off “making a decision” about an impending career change for too long
  • Plus so much more!


Jenna herself is a beautiful example of a woman who has found her Soul Aligned Career and her own path, by trusting herself, her body and her inner wisdom. 


I love this woman and her coaching certification. I use her teachings within the realm of Feminine Embodiment in my work with clients (+ also have the privilege of being a trainer at the school).


This is one of the benefits of pursuing your Soul Aligned Career, you meet amazing people along the way! 


If you’re contemplating a career transition, in the middle of one or simply want to figure out how to step into your Soul Aligned Career, check out the interview.
