Recently in the coaching arena, I’ve seen so many coaches saying others are stealing from them ….and I wonder about it…especially if the coach teaches abundance. Someone writes something and the coach says they are stealing her copy. Someone makes something and the coach says they took her idea.
Now some would say…but you don’t know how it feels!!!!
To which I say…I do! In the last 12 years…
– I have had someone contact me to use my art as a logo for Yoni eggs and when I declined they redrew my image and used it anyway.
– I have had a previous intern and mentoree quit suddenly only to go off and suddenly bill herself as a coach and Feminine mentor and attempt to use my material.
– My Beloved and I have had people take the notes from our classes and teach from them.
– I had a former student attempt to form her own version of SOFT and tell me she was going to “steal” my practices to use in her classes.
And so so so much more. It’s not cool and is not fun I know.
We never talk about these things and are only mentioning them now to educate.
Because honestly… Only that which is built on Love will last. And it is the response that is EVERYTHING.
We generally trust Truth to defend itself. The vast majority of our students are VERY loyal and they hold each other accountable and will tell one another “That’s from Mama and Baba…you need to give them credit” or even tell someone else “Yes that’s awesome! I read it on Richard and Namastes website ” for which we are grateful. Our tribe lovingly correcting people is invaluable.
Metaphysically we’re all one. And each individuated aspect is called to transmit a specific message…meant to offer and share specific things. When someone comes into your body of work and then does something like you is likely because they don’t know their thing and so they’re trying on yours.
It’s like a younger sibling trying on his brother’s jersey. It won’t fit and even if he tries out he can’t replace you.
Are there people who are just doing this from ego? Definitely…BUT those who do will never have the same potency and that will teach them the lesson they need.
Every person listed above…only put a kink in their hose of flow. Only cut off their access to us as a resource and collaborator with them.
Also beloved remember to check to see if they are just following a similar template or are the copying? Today everyone is selling business templates for copy, images, etc; It is possible that the template you use had been sold by a coach and they are just following it and don’t even know who you are. Ouch!
Last night I was looking at fonts for a project we’re doing and I was musing over how many fonts look alike…some of them have only minor differences…they are a part of the same font family perhaps but they feel different. That’s what we are…Fonts…from the same family.
If you’re #loveovereverything you needn’t worry. If you’re money over everything you will perceive this as taking from you…instead of realizing that YOUR Source is Infinite.
BTW: One of the things I’ve noticed is that women and nonMasculine men complain about these things far more than Masculine men do. It seems to be connected to a desire for safety and a fear of not having enough resources. If you feel yourself being affected by this take some time to immerse in the Infinite. There is nothing like realizing how much there truly is for you to reset your perspective.
