Fideliz Cruz Vision Casting Workshop | Anointed Leadership

Another great event and highlight to my week. Despite the hiccups and challenges I have had with family issues, I’m so grateful the Lord provided and allowed for me to participate in this workshop.

As I always say, “Showing up is half way there”. I’m proud that I showed up and Jesus, as always, showed up for me.

Last session in April, only 3 months ago (although it seemed a lot longer!), my mission statement was,

“To be a fearless and faith-filled entrepreneur and yoga therapist, joyfully serving God in my business, community and loving my family.”

I was so ecstatic about having a sharp goal and vision, I made sure that the mood/vision board was laminated and stuck on the wall of my walk-in wardrobe so that every morning when I dress myself, I would wear my mission.

And boy, did I!

I have to admit that reviewing my past quarter’s actions against the mission was a daunting move. But I’m so glad I made space for that time and did it. I am able to say that I tried my best to live it out and simply because I made a commitment to it and made it a habit to remind myself daily.

And all because the beautiful Fideliz gave me the tools to do that. Talk about anointed leadership!

This time, in this July vision casting workshop, I was blessed to be able to meet other like-minded beautiful women – some whom I have been divinely and newly connected via social media and others whom I have connected with very naturally since my Holy Yoga journey . This workshop has provided and will continue to be an opportunity for an in-person gatherings for like-minded women! 

If you’ve chanced upon this blog or have been meaning to meet up with me to talk Christian Yoga and Wellness, please do reach out as I will have tickets for the next one happening in October! I can’t wait.

Meanwhile, my goal for this quarter has taken a more specific position as I feel the Lord giving me permission to step up and into this space with honour. I pray that He will give me the wisdom, grace and strength to journey through and serve Him joyfully. 

“My vision is to be an anointed leadership in business, women’s communities and my family. I am committed to showing up, serving Jesus and personal growing in faith.”

For more information and to join this beautiful community, the next workshop will be in October. Stay tuned by following my social media and check out http://www.fidelizcruz.com!


Until next time, friends xx

National Volunteer Week 2017 | Wesley Mission

The best contribution to $4M I’ve ever made – the joys of my life. Some would have heard my story for the very first time of how I got the privilege to volunteer, at Wesley Mission’s School for Seniors as a Yoga teacher, at this celebration at #nationalvolunteerweek. 

Jeannie Mathews, I’m forever thankful to you for bringing me in.

Today is the last day of National Volunteer week, a celebration to recognise those who contribute to the community in volunteer services.

Today, I am so proud and honoured to be celebrating this with other volunteers in Wesley Mission, as they host their last afternoon tea for this week. Some of you will have heard my story of why I volunteer at Wesley for the first time. And I will share this personal story again and again of my calling into volunteering in this loving place. All you need is to ask me 😊

Today, I met those who had volunteered for 30 years and those who were still volunteering and serving the community in their 90’s. To think my Friday morning yoga classes offered to the School for Seniors in the past 16 months is a big commitment is naïve, compared to the work that some of these other volunteers have done. Don’t get me wrong, I do not want to undermine the hours and effort that I have spent and the benefits that the community receive. But it was certainly very grounding to see the joy of those who have served in community, especially the elderly community (94 year olds!!!) 

Wesley Mission highlighted that the contribution is equivalent to a saving of $4M AUD in wages. The impact of the lives that volunteers is invaluable. 

96% of volunteers say that they feel happier and sleep better.

I certainly feel and own this privilege. ❤️ Curious to know if it’s true? Give it a go. Try and see for yourself!
