From the outside I looked fulfilled and successful. I'd built a business, brought in a partner and won multiple business awards including Australian Business Bulletin Magazine's Young Entrepreneur of the Year under 30.
I looked like my life was on track, but my soul was screaming for a different path and I could no longer ignore it.
I was so off purpose from what I felt I was meant to be doing with my life and I was lost, stuck, alone and trapped in a gilded cage that I'd created.
For many moons I'd been trying to smother my soul's whispers of discontent by over-working and partying with friends.
My self-care and spiritual practice were non-existent, and I was avoiding quiet moments where my truth could sneak through.
As a result, I grew further out of alignment and pinched off from my inner & higher guidance system, and my low vibes meant I was attracting shitty experiences from my shitty point of attraction.
Despite my attempts to outrun my inner voice, I found myself that morning sobbing in the shower, because the inevitable self-loathing and physical/emotional ‘crash’ that always comes from ignoring our inner compass had finally caught up with me.
It took three very ugly years to untangle the mess...
After dropping a bomb on my business partner by telling her I wanted out, it then took more than a year to sell the business, another challenging year working for the new owners to handover my 'baby', and then a year of "Shit, what now?"
That last year was my dark night of the soul - a year of feeling desperate, lost, stuck, second guessing myself, confused about my purpose, anxious, comparing myself to others and worrying about what other people would think.
It's frustrating when you're tiptoeing around the edges of you and your true, aligned potential and all the while you feel the undeniable call of your soul to ALIGN WITH ALL OF WHO YOU ARE.
I couldn't find my way out of the fog and my poor husband didn't know how to help.
I'd been depressed for months and was struggling to get out of bed, but this particular morning I was at rock bottom - sometimes we have to get on our knees to have a breakthrough.
I reached for one of my favourite books, Conversations with God (despite the title this is not a religious book and I highly recommend it if you're on a spiritual journey) and held it closed in my hands.
Through my tears I said something along the lines of, "I give up, please tell me what to do", and then I opened to a random page.
The words that shifted everything were something like, 'Surrender, you don't have to drive, get out of the way, you'll be guided, follow your passions.'
I went straight to the computer and typed words into the browser like 'make a difference', 'helping people', 'passion', 'purpose...' and I came across something called coaching, which I'd never heard of (this was back in 2000). There happened to be an information session I attended that night and a week later I started my training.
Everything began unfolding in the most unexpected and coincidental ways.
Out of nowhere I was contacted by CPA Australia's Melbourne branch to speak on 'Finding Your Purpose' to 160 female accountants at a morning breakfast, and it sold out so we ran a second event.
Within weeks my coaching practice was full with a waitlist, and I was still doing my coach training.
I was experiencing a state of high vibration and co-creation, expecting and allowing the Universe to put all the pieces in place for me in expected and unexpected ways.
Now, of course it wasn't all rainbows and unicorn poo from that point forward.
I'm human and the last 20+ years have been a winding road of manifesting amazing opportunities, and then getting busy and forgetting the KEY to feeling on purpose is daily alignment, and then losing my way and having to find my way back.
Although we may know that consistent spiritual alignment is the key, it can be hard to integrate it into our busy daily lives and live it, so again and again we can find ourselves stuck in a spiritual void (or spiritual avoidance), lacking the clarity, purpose, impact, meaning, fulfillment and oneness our souls are truly yearning for.
And let’s not forget about Law of Attraction and unconsciously manifesting all kinds of stuff you don’t want from your low vibes and lack of alignment.
The long-term risk is feeling like you’re wasting your life, stuck in a cycle where you’re playing small and not living the aligned & expansive life that's calling you.
Can you relate?
Walking this path can be tricky to navigate on your own & at times it can feel elusive, out of reach, unachievable or inconsistent - especially when you're busy & there are few people around you who understand the path.
For 20 years I've been helping women walk this 'purpose' path, to step fully into who they are & then stay on track, because the journey of staying on purpose never ends...
Quite simply, my goal is your consistent high vibrational alignment with you...
Where you're operating from your spiritual connection...
Where you're accessing your authentic truth, wisdom, higher guidance and clarity of purpose...
Where you're consciously co-creating your own reality with your intention & point of attraction...
Where you're answering the call of your soul and confidently walking the path...
And where you're tapped into your higher power to be grandest version of YOU.
"I don’t know what she did, but in that first week I got so much clarity from about 5 exercises she had me do. I literally pulled in more money in that first week after coaching with Rachael than I ever have in a week’s period, just because she told me to do it and I finally didn’t get in my own way. I can only explain it like this: her vibration is high, and it rubs off on me and empowers me. I’ve always heard about Law of Attraction stuff and tried to do it, but Rachael absolutely gets it."
"I would sincerely like to thank you for making my coaching experience a very memorable and worthwhile journey. You expertly guided me through the maze that was my life and brought some much needed clarity. Your support and non-judgmental spirit throughout these past months have been tremendous, but most of all I’d like to thank you for helping me re-discover the authentic ‘me’. "
"I am very pleased to say that not only have I gained tremendous insight and understanding about how I need to take more control of my own destiny and future but how much of this is within my own control. This realisation only became apparent because of the incredibly insightful, instructive and supportive role that you were able to provide for me...I will be eternally grateful for your guidance and help. You truly are such an inspirational woman with a fantastic spirit, which shines through in everything you say and do. "
"I would listen to Rachael Pickworth – she took us from broke to $15k recurring leveraged monthly income in less than a year. I’m not kidding. We needed a mindset shift and she helped us get unstuck. We’re happy clients."
"Friday’s first session was really amazing for me. I have spent most of the weekend digesting what you said and realigning my dreams for my business (and oh they have grown). Clearly I can be these things and much sooner than the 5 year plan I had set! "
"I cannot express or thank you enough for being there for me at the time I needed it most – you guided me out of the darkest period of my life – you never judged me and made me realise what life is really about and that I am a beautiful, confident and strong person. I have made such amazing progress – my life has completely changed I now have a spring in my step, the people around me say that I am glowing and I am starting to attract the things I want in my life. I can honestly say if it wasn’t for you and your beautiful, pure spirit I am not sure how much deeper the dark hole would have gone. So here’s to you, Rachael. Thanks for believing in me when no one else did, but mostly thanks for being my inspiration. "
"A small thank you for your support, encouragement and compassion. You have facilitated for me clarity, purpose, courage, excitement and possibility. Look where I am now to where I was 12 months ago. Wow! With love to a wonderful spirit."
"When I first spoke with Rachael, I was anxious and sad. I knew that I had a purpose that I wasn’t living but had no idea what I was looking for or how things could get better. I was stuck and couldn’t understand why everyone else around me seemed so content. I am eternally grateful my search lead me to Rachael. She opened my eyes to the fact I am here to experience joy and I have the power to create everything I want in this world. I know this will be life-long work for me but Rachael has given me the tools to navigate my way through and I finally feel excited about what possibilities will come my way. It is an incredible feeling knowing I am now on the right path and I couldn’t have done it without Rachael’s incredible insight and support. "
"Through working with Rachael over this past 6 months I have made huge changes in my life. I have had mind shift after mind shift! I have moved away from a place of negativity, anger and frustration – a place I had previously kept revisiting for the past 30 years. After 6 sessions my thought processes had transformed and I am now moving forward in my personal relationships and career from a centred, calm, happy place. I always wondered what the elusive feeling of ‘alignment’ was and now I have experienced that feeling, thanks to Rachael. Alignment feels amazing! I am so grateful that Rachael serendipitously came into my life when she did, she is wise beyond her years. I would recommend the beautiful Rachael to anyone who is ready to make positive changes in their life. "
"Just a quick note to let you know how much we appreciated and enjoyed your presentations at our recent WCN networking breakfasts. You might be interested to know that at the May breakfast we had a record attendance with over 160 guests and that you are the first speaker we have asked back due to such an overwhelming interest. The response has been phenomenal and the evaluation forms 100% positive! You will be a tough act for others to follow. "
"I’m just excited about everything that’s happening and want to thank you for all your help. It is truly so amazing how you have the ability not only to get people to see their true potential, but also to get them to take action on it! I think you are probably the best coach around! Thank you! "
"Rachael you are a life changer! Amazing, amazing, amazing. From getting me out of my old life, developing my confidence, building new skills...words just can't express how fortunate I feel. I am wowed and I can't imagine what's to come in the future! I'm amazed - I feel so aligned in my life. "
