The idea for #MetaBusiness came to me in 2019 as I was nearing the end of my own metaphysical psychology studies and healing from severe burnout after shuttering operations of my first start-up, DaO Detroit. The idea, very simply, was to bring my metaphysical and spiritual practices to business boardrooms, classrooms, trading floors, and especially to the millions of people around the world dedicating their lives to organizations that too often ignore their contributions.
For the vast majority of my business career, I was quick to point the finger at big greedy corporations and the “white guys” as the evil culprits who kept the status quo business operations in effect. I felt they were the ones that didn’t care about diversity and inclusion, didn’t care about treating employees well, or didn’t care about paying fair and equitable salaries. I mean, there was always something to blame them for.
Then, in 2017, I categorically decided that it was my time to run my own business so that I can do it the “right” way. Yet, ironically, my feelings didn’t change. I struggled to get along with my business partners. I struggled to keep a consistent team together. I struggled to be happy doing what I quit the corporate game to do – build a harmonious and sustainable company. This is when I began to innerstand that the zero-point for all that I was experiencing started with me and NOT the “white guys.” So, I began my Metaphysical Business journey.
Metaphysics invites us to go beyond our here-and-now three-dimensional reality and tap into our true self – also known as our soul, higher self, and/or inner being. Each and every one of us has this “invisible self” that dwells within us, and we all can connect to this aspect of ourselves at any time. It is through this connection that we see ourselves, the world, and the people around us as Source sees us – pure perfection.
Now that’s crazy, right?! I know it may sound a bit ridiculous, but it is the truth. We have more peace, creativity, and energy as we tap into Source and our higher selves. We actually start to enjoy the things we do every day instead of doing them out of obligation, which is what most folks do who get up and go to work every day.
I know it sounds too good to be true, but hear me out. . .
Universal law states that in every moment of every day, we are actively creating our reality. We are creating our future with every conscious or subconscious thought. When you know how to harness the power of this undeniable universal law in your life, you can direct your thoughts and actions in a way that allows you to effortlessly attract what you want. So, when we trust this law to be true, we can rest easy knowing that everything always works out for us, as long as we are aligned with what we truly desire for ourselves. This is the major key, y’all. We must be aware of how we think. We must be aware of how we speak. We must be aware of how we act. We must be aware of how we feel. Some people without self-awareness remain stuck in the victim cycle and continue to blame the “white guys.”
Feeling stuck and blaming others for my failures is not a place I’ll ever be again, and it’s certainly not a place you should occupy either. I developed #MetaBusiness to help leaders heal from organizational dis-ease and thrive in the face of the inevitable challenges that arise in day-to-day work-life existence. #MetaBusiness is designed to lift human consciousness in organizations across the world, allowing corporate cultures to embody more of the joy, innovation, and authentic community feels that people are now craving more than ever.
It goes without saying that the time for #MetaBusiness is now. Are you ready?
