Sacred social media is an idea that changed my business. It's completely changed the way I show up on social media and even the way that I work with my clients! In a previous blog post, I explained that sacred social media is an idea that will mean different things to different people. So today I want to show you what sacred social media means to my tribe!
"To me, sacred social media means being true to you. Not following trends or what you think will get more likes, but treating it as an extension of yourself and a genuine way to connect, share, and tell stories of who you are to find your people."
"Sacred social media to me is about creating posts which light me up creatively, while helping me to connect with the beautiful people in my community."
"Sacred social media means showing up in a way that is honest, vulnerable and real. It's a commitment to not just showing the highlight reel of your life or business but truly serving your tribe.
Sometimes you serve them through beautiful images, other times through a poignant quote, sometimes it is giving them a glimpse into your real life but the most powerful and sacred is sharing with them what wouldn't normally make the highlight reel.
Nothing is more of service than letting people know that you are not perfect and that they are not alone in their fears, anxieties, and imperfections."
"Sacred Social to me means showing up and connecting with like-minded people, creating new friendships and relationships with people all across the globe!"
"It's all about intention! To me, it means posting when you have something valuable and genuine to share -- rather than posting just to meet your daily social media quota."
"To me sacred social media is about understanding social media as a tool for creating meaningful connections and community, and also it's about keeping some of your own secrets sacred and your precious moments between just you and your family - everything that is truly sacred has some parameters to it and that's a healthy thing to remember."
"While it's different for everyone, the meaning of sacred social media for me is a space where I can express my creativity and connect with people who share similar values and interests. Social media can be a different experience for everyone, and to enjoy its positive effects I create my own rules and take time away regularly to maintain some perspective. Sacred social media also means being mindful and responsible of what I share and the impact it may have on others, which means sharing the full spectrum of life and business in my captions!"
"To me, sacred social media means showing up with intention; the words we choose to use, the images we decide to post and the time we devote to social media, whether it's how often we use it for our businesses or the time we spend on it in our free-time."
"To me sacred social media stands for "inspiring in an authentic way". My aim is to inspire other moms rather than impress them, and make them realise that feeding a healthy family doesn't have to be complicated or time-consuming."
"To me, sacred social media means showing up with honesty, integrity, kindness, an intention for genuine connection, and wholehearted presence."
"Showing up fully in my magic and power, without limitation."
"I associate the word "sacred" with "sacrifice". For me, that's about consistently showing up on social media."
