An Interview With Fotis Georgiadis
Receive More Than You Give. When you want to transform the world it takes a lot of individuals to support that cause. I’m a big giver, but so often we can give until it hurts. If you know that you can give freely and receive freely, it’s easier to create a movement. I remember once I was talking to someone and recommending a bunch of people that she could work with…she finally got frustrated with me and said, “I want to work with you” — I missed all the cues on that.
As a part of my series about “Big Ideas That Might Change The World In The Next Few Years” I had the pleasure of interviewing Jennifer Urezzio.
Jennifer Urezzio is the founder of Soul Language — a paradigm that puts tangibility to Soul so a conscious connection can be established to enable crystal clear decisions for success. Jennifer is also a master intuitive and the author of two best-selling books. Currently, she has trained more than 30 practitioners worldwide in Soul Language, and there are over 5,000 individuals all over the world connecting to their Soul Languages.
Thank you so much for doing this with us! Before we dig in, our readers would like to get to know you a bit. Can you please share some background about what led you to this specific career path?
Well…I was in marketing and public relations and wasn’t allowed to talk to clients because I would tell them the truth. I had an inner knowing there was something bigger inside me and I was exhausted by trying to fit into the mold corporate America thought I should, so I began asking questions of the Universe. Before long, I started receiving answers and realized that I could do what I did in corporate America — which was to create the job I truly wanted. After I found that clarity, I spoke at a convention about life purpose and walked off the stage to a line of people waiting to talk to me and ready to hire me for sharing truth.
Can you please share with us the most interesting story that’s happened to you since you began your career?
I’m guided by my Soul. One day, I was on Facebook and was looking at this woman’s profile and I heard “call her”. Of course I argued for awhile, but eventually I listened and made the call. When I introduced myself and asked if she had a few minutes to chat…she said, “you’re kidding, right? I was just talking to a friend of mine who recommended I call you”.
Which principles or philosophies have guided your life? Your career?
Every morning, I start off with the intention to speak and hear with the frequencies of love — first for myself and then others. That statement has been the guiding force for many of my choices, and has stopped me from pulling out my warrior card and (figuratively) chopping off some heads.
If I believe I’m whole and complete (which I do), then I must treat everyone else as if they are whole and complete as well, even if they aren’t acting like it.
Okay, thank you for that. Let’s move on now to the main focus of our interview. Can you tell us about your “Big Idea That Might Change The World”?
I would be honored to. My Big Idea That Might Change The World is that businesses have a Soul.
How do you think this will change the world?
Well…since the energy of Soul wants what’s in the greatest good of all and operates from a place of wholeness and completeness, there would be a lot less pain and struggle in the world.
Companies would be making decisions, creating products and providing services based on the knowing that there is enough and will always be enough. No more secret memos. No more doing things out of integrity. There would be no need to come from a place of lack because each person in the company would have an innate understanding that a company is designed to succeed. So if we put consciousness into that energy it will expand, grow, and profit.
Well…I think that what I want people to keep in mind is that we are human. When we operate from humanity’s weaknesses (fear, lack, greed) then any idea will create misalignments and unintended consequences. So often people use “their truth” to justify choices. I’m asking them to utilize THE Truth. The Truth that no one is the Source for you, only a resource, and that the Universe is good and wants the best for you.
Was there a “tipping point” that led you to this idea? Can you tell us that story?
I don’t think there was a tipping point…I think that all of this was/is an evolutionary process. I wanted to be closer to the Divine (and you can call it whatever resonates most with you). I was interested in feeling, knowing and expressing that I have unlimited possibilities inside me, so I was looking at all those places where I and others struggled.
It just seemed a natural jump to want to start to understand the energy of my business.
What do you need to lead this idea to widespread adoption?
To get this information out more, I require individuals who want to understand their Soul and the Soul of a business, and who also want to teach others.
What are your “5 Things I Wish Someone Told Me Before I Started” and why? (Please share a story or example for each.)
- Don’t Try To Convert The Unconvertable. I remember that I was reaching out to “gurus” to support them going deeper in their connection. Each one felt that they had everything they need, yet I was able to tell on an energetic level that they were fooling themselves. It was only when I started talking to people who understood there was so much more to discover that Soul Language took off.
- Receive More Than You Give. When you want to transform the world it takes a lot of individuals to support that cause. I’m a big giver, but so often we can give until it hurts. If you know that you can give freely and receive freely, it’s easier to create a movement. I remember once I was talking to someone and recommending a bunch of people that she could work with…she finally got frustrated with me and said, “I want to work with you” — I missed all the cues on that.
- Boundaries Bring Joy. I can’t take credit for that saying. It’s from Dr. Heather Clark, but it is so true. I remember when I first started the business, I would say yes to everything and anything. I found myself crying at my desk at night because I was “doing” all these things that weren’t in the best interest of me or the business.
- There’s a Big Difference Between Not Resonating and Resistance. I’m in the coaching industry and so often coaches will tell individuals they are in resistance because they are saying no to something, but it often really is that person or thing doesn’t resonate with them. I worked with a podcasting network representative and remember getting off the phone in tears because she was berating me, telling me I wasn’t living up to my potential because I didn’t want to do what she was suggesting. What she was asking me to do didn’t resonate with me and she was trying to manipulate me into doing what she wanted by telling me I was in resistance.
- Just Because Someone Is Highly Intuitive Doesn’t Mean They Are Conscious. My first intuitive mentor once yelled at me because during class she asked me what we all had in common, and I said we all share lack. She got angry and told me I was flat out wrong. If she was evolving her consciousness rather than just expressing her intuitiveness, I believe she would have handled that situation differently. That wasn’t the first or last unconsciousness action on her part and it took me a while to understand and let go of her as a mentor.
Can you share with our readers what you think are the most important “success habits” or “success mindsets”?
One of the principles I live by is: If I knew I was whole and complete what would I do, express, and speak. That one core value has generated a lot of success.
Also, one of the success habits I suggest to clients is to ask this question: What am I going to do in my business every day, every week, every month and every year to grow it?
Some very well known VC’s read this column. If you had 60 seconds to make a pitch to a VC, what would you say? He or she might just see this if we tag them 🙂
Louise Hay just wanted to create something that would help herself and others. I believe this is the next evolution of “helping” oneself and others. If more people understood how to connect to their Soul and the Soul of a business, it would make life easier for them and their communities. People would have more energy and time to create and transform the world instead of worrying about their survival needs.
