I really sat with what to write about this week. So much is swirling through my mind and my heart as I am calling in exactly what I asked for and I am loving it, ALL of it. I realized today that on September 1, 2017 I signed the lease on my space and made the decision to
SHOW UP! AND INVITE.
Showing up for myself and what is in my heart and my sacred work and showing up for you by providing the sacred space to do your work. But I am at a threshold of growth. A year ago I held a private ceremony asking for the women to come, and now they are coming. It has taken a year of patience and love and connecting, exactly what I wanted and visioned. And I will continue to show up for anyone who comes to my door. I am also at a threshold in my own inner journey.
And so are you!
I see it every day, I feel it, I hear it; I talk to you, and I hear from most women I meet, they want to find their tribe, they want to connect, we are CRAVING it. And so I provide that to any woman who comes. And a brave woman in a class last week expressed the paradox, and the truth.
It would have been so much easier to wrap myself in a blanket and bingewatch Netflix than show up, but I am so glad I did.
There is so much truth in that. It does seem easier to veg out and cocoon ourselves. And sometimes we need to do just that, and I have done it OH so many times, because I did not want to be visible and vulnerable. But really, stepping over the threshold into discomfort and showing up has so much more medicine in it, so many more opportunities for growth when we share our stories, and when we are seen. And I can't express how much gratitude I have for the women who choose to step into the discomfort and spend time with me, and the other women who have also chosen to show up. For me it is salve for my soul. You see I decided I had no desire to isolate myself, that would have been easy....and self-destructive. I know I have been there.
As for my own threshold and personal journey. I worked with some mentors this week, all three of mine in a week. WOW. Again, I asked for it. I asked for them to show up in my life, to catalyze me in different ways, because they all carry different energies. Funny thing is, it call came back to the same initiation point on my journey and what I am saying yes to. They know, I know. There are no accidents that I called in the Wise Council to reflect for me the same message, in 3 different ways so it lands deeply in my heart and soul, and speaks to my different essences. Every single one of them took me on a journey that led to the same place.
My Inner Child
Do you know what she wants? And what I am saying yes to? She wants someone to play with. Many someones if possible, someones who are ready to remove their masks of adulting and just play for the sake of playing and pure pleasure. For me this is not easy. I am THE RESPONSIBLE ONE! I have a lot of work to do, I am hear to hold the shadow space, but with that comes some light and play. How about you? What is hard for you to say yes to? What aspect of yourself are you completely ignoring. AND:
How is that working for you?
I know for me, ignoring the child who just wants to play, has not worked out all that well. So its time to honor her, give her some space, but most importantly give her some love. So I ask you loves, what part of you do you want to unleash and say yes to? Please share, publicly or privately. I am always here to listen
