“The call and the calling is about coming home.” – Rha Goddess

“In the hustle and the bustle of our realities, we often don’t have the luxury to give ourselves time and space to just be, or to just think, or to just listen and because of that, we are functioning in confusion.” – Rha Goddess

“Once I get clear, I have a responsibility to then act on my clarity.” – Rha Goddess 

“So many of us have reasons why we feel that we don’t deserve or are not entitled to money or are entitled to a feeling of being well-resourced. This idea that it, in some way, wealth will separate us from the people we love or separate us from the communities that we identify with.” – Rha Goddess

“Lack of belonging is another big reason why we stay in confusion.” – Rha Goddess

“What does money equal for us? What’s the equation that we’ve set up ourselves around money and how do we start to unearth and understand that the very essence and at the very core where those conversations come from.” – Rha Goddess

“The sense of being sophisticated around money or the sense of being well-resourced around money was not something that I inherited.” – Rha Goddess

“I had to wrestle free the interlocking of money with being dedicated to having a value system, that honored my people.” – Rha Goddess

“We’ve been indoctrinated to believe that people who have a bunch of stuff or people who are super good at stuff, that automatically there are things we hang on them, things we drape on them in the context of power, in the context of iconic worship that then give them license, dare I say, to act out in ways that normally would be completely unacceptable,” – Rha Goddess

“We have a responsibility to do our work and as those who are committed to entrusting other leaders with our systems and our structures, we have a responsibility to also command that this is part of the prerequisite for leadership.” – Rha Goddess

“We have been accomplices in the misuse of power in precisely the ways you’ve described. We have been accomplices because we do not demand more, and it feels like we are in dark times. It also feels like to me that maybe the opportunity that is in these dark times is to reach deep within ourselves and say, “Enough.” We demand more.” – Jerry Colonna

“Are you going to stand in fear? Or are you going to stand in love? Love gives us far more capacity to contribute than fear ever could. Fear may be the spark that gets us on the journey but at some point, love’s got to take the wheel.” – Rha Goddess

“There is a difference between good work and your work.” – Rha Goddess
