Every step in my evolution requests a releasing of another dark secret, which hides snuggly in its nest of denial. It demands an end to any pretense or self-deception at a yet deeper level. If I’m to continue to evolve, this process is necessary and no amount of stubborn justification will do. Each advancement washes me cleaner, slowly stripping away all facade and leaving me gloriously more naked in my essence. Truth is challenging, incredibly frightening and, at times, crushing.
We, humans, struggle with our truth. Many of us desire only to focus on our light because our darkness is too hard to bear. It makes us feel embarrassed, unclean, less deserving. We’ve been conditioned to be ashamed of it. But our denial doesn’t take it away. It only makes it stronger as it lingers insidiously beneath the surface affecting everything. To face it bravely is to take away its power. Only when we can accept it as part of us, as a messenger, a protector or merely as a misguided energy, can we then understand it and let it go.
This isn’t an easy path and unless you’re called to it, chances are you’ll throw in the towel. Living in the illusionary bliss of denial can be deceptively easier. But I’m finding more and more of us being called to make the harder choice. I think it’s necessary at this time of global crisis. We’re awakening as a species. Our next evolution is crucial to our survival.
If you’re feeling the call, don’t panic. Don’t force things. Learn to listen to yourself. Let your evolution unfold naturally and at a pace that feels right for you. Find others who are on the path. You’ll need support. Don’t look to others to give you answers though. Look to others who can help you find your own. Learn to feel, reconnect, listen. Go to Nature. She can help you connect with Universal Source through your higher self.
Go to Nature for strength and peace, inward for the answers and to others for support and kinship.
Trust in your own unfolding, your own wisdom. Trust that the Universe has your back and all is as it should be. This is the only way forward. Without this trust, your fear will shrink you, trip you up and lie to you. You’ll remain forever vulnerable to lies and deceit. You’ll believe in the consummate darkness of life and humanity.
Use your past pain to your advantage. Learn from it. Use it to help others. ‘We teach from our wounded places.’ There have been no truer words. Accept, feel, heal, and pass it on. Pass it on by example. Pass it on in how you live your life. Don’t give answers, solutions or opinions. Show it through your life. Tell your story but don’t prescribe. No two people take the exact same path to success. Give hope, inspire. Show them how to listen to themselves, to find their own healing path.
This way of conscious living is scary. Getting naked isn’t easy. It’s important to learn healthy boundaries to protect yourself. But the rewards of this path, are spectacular.
I hope to see you there.
Sometimes I feel as though I repeat myself by expressing the same message in various different word sequences but I’ve chosen to write what calls to be written as opposed to taking a topic and writing about it. There may be times I’ll do that as well but for the most part, I let it happen organically. I’m trusting this will serve you, my reader, in the best way. However, if there are topics you’d like to hear my outlooks on, please don’t hesitate to reach out and let me know. It’s my desire to support you on your journey. The best way for me to do that is by hearing from you. 🙂
