Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got. There is no yesterday, no tomorrow, it’s all the same day – Janis Joplin
Ambila's story isn't complicated or hard to understand... but it was a journey that she chose to take to become the person she already was.
Ambila had a typical Asian upbringing where, as a woman you were expected to get married after you graduated and only follow your dreams with your husband - if he and his family allowed it. You were expected to fit into what was the 'norm' and what people understood to be right
The difference with her was that she was born ahead of her time. She was born too independent and too strong for what her society would accept or was ready for.
She battled with her family, culture and society for the right to lead her own life and make her own choices. Her family could not understand what was wrong with her and why she was resisting the life that they wanted for her. They were viewing it from a point that this would bring her happiness and love - and Ambila was viewing it from the point where her life would be restricted and she would be expected to fit into another mould and not be allowed to follow her own dreams.
She wanted all the things that her society and family wanted for her but she wanted them on her terms, in her own time and in her own way.
Her dreams were not complicated - she just wanted the FREEDOM TO CHOOSE, TO MAKE HER OWN DECISIONS and JUST TO BE WHO SHE WAS.
There was a lot of unhappiness and loneliness – as no one in her family saw or understood her. Each year just blended into the one before – nothing seemed to change but life just got more and more pressured and unhappy.
Now she can see that the universe was telling her to break free, be her own person
– but how do you become that person when you don’t have the skills, tools and knowledge to believe in yourself and to know that you will be ok.
" Life is a matter of choices, and every choice you make makes you - John C. Maxwell "
Ambila had started studying to be a life coach and that gave her the strength to walk away from a life that was no longer working for her. She could either have sunk or swam - but the choice was obvious - she was going to swim (or learn how if she had to). She wasn't prepared to give up on herself or her life.
She made a decision to change how things were and took the scary step and pushed herself so far out of her comfort zone and outside the cultural guilt of trying to make everyone else happy.
She followed her intuition and knew that she needed to be in Brighton, UK. It was far away enough from her family but close enough for her to still be connected to her friends.
She started a new life in a new city with “yet to meet” new people.
It was a very difficult and lonely time, being somewhere where you were not familiar with the streets or the people. She had to teach herself all the skills to survive and make a new life. It took her a long time to feel that this was home and that she belonged.
So while going through this physical transition she also started her spiritual one too. She attended psychic workshops to help her to connect with her spirituality and open up her intuition and experiencing what energies were for the first time.
She became interested in alternative therapies and building her knowledge of how blocked emotions impact your physical & mental health when you do not deal with inner pain.
Sounds strange ehh..
How someone who has lived her life in logic and in her head was now learning to open up to her heart and trust herself.
At this stage, Ambila started a journey in becoming a Serial Entrepreneur. The funny thing about this transition was that she led a double life - her business-self, made decisions with her head and her spiritual-self was exploring trusting the heart and intuition. The people around her either saw the businesswoman or the laid back person going with the flow.
She shied away from revealing her spirituality as she was afraid of what people would think of her and how they would relate to her. That was her perception and her own self-belief.
It took Ambila a long time, a lot of heartaches and a lot of life challenges to totally embrace her spirituality and who she truly is. She embraced her logical intellect because it helps her to articulate what spirituality is and how to be open to it. She is able to show people why and how their life is not going in the direction they want, because something bigger (like the universal energy) may be affecting its progress.
By learning and understanding the skills of BEING IN FLOW... and living in the present.
She Didn't Allow Yesterday's Pain to Define Her or the Uncertainty of Tomorrow to Control Her
"Nobody needs to live a life in a box that 'Fits all'. Living your true life and being courageous enough to find the love that you want, means opening yourself up to your potential and trusting your own intuition and voice!" - Ambila Nath
Being In Flow is allowing you to manifest the life you want and make decisions that are true to your heart.
Ambila is only a person and knows that she doesn't have all the answers, but one thing she does have is a commitment to finding them and giving you the best guidance and support that she can.
People know her to be a straight talker and to tell it how it is - with love and compassion. Everything she says and does comes from a place of empathy and from her heart.
Thank you for connecting with Ambila and allowing her to support you in your journey!
