Truth or Dare.....Both!

 Taking Flight 

The truth has been weighing heavily on me recently and I am left wondering:

Why is it so difficult to live from our truth?

Perhaps the Judgment, vulnerability, and exposure we might encounter……. 

 I have discovered it takes the spirit of a seeker and the courage of an explorer to know thy truth. If you want to speak and live from the truth of your soul, it takes desire, awareness and practice.  It has been said that the truth will set you free, and when you get free of something, you can definitely feel exposed and vulnerable. I have experienced this and I am growing comfortable with vulnerability.  Allowing the divine feminine to have a place in my life now, has shown me that it’s okay to feel unsure about stepping out, for example, because I have created a safe foundation. This is now a part of my truth, and there is power in that. But most often our truth is clouded by our insecurities, negative patterns and false beliefs. Unless we take up the path of personal and spiritual discovery, it can be difficult to tease apart the discourse we have experienced as ‘self’ through our personality. 

  “The darkness has a hunger that’s insatiable; the lightness has a call that’s hard to hear.”  Closer to Fine, by the Indigo Girls                           

     The past few weeks I have been in touch with a core wound that has left me engulfed with sadness.  A drowning voice painfully cries out; “I don’t feel loved, I can’t see me, I don’t matter.” The voice at times has been raw and sad; other times loud and demanding. For many years it has been quietly calling out to me from painful body parts; “Notice me, pay attention to me!” I am paying attention to this inner voice in a whole new way this time. Allowing myself to ‘just be’ in the sea of her sadness, feeling it without judgment. My golden take away; the only way to move through this, is to feel and accept it. While I am swimming underwater, consciously aware of her pain, I continue to breathe and accept. In the past; I denied it, was angered by it, yelled at it, and even ignored it.

I T   J U S T   G O T   W O R S E.

So where does this leave me, you might wonder? In the present moment. There is no other. I can’t wish this away or pretend it away any longer. I am living it. I am living my truth, moment by moment. This is a necessary step in my evolutionary process and I accept that this is part of the ebb and flow of my path.

I surrender and I accept.

Letting go creates movement. I feel a release from the heaviness of sorrow. I dip into myself and know with certainty, I will surface and swim to my shore.  My shore is a welcoming and loving space within me, where I cherish and connect with the divine in me. I am rewarded with knowing the deeper truth of who I am; I am relevant, I matter greatly and I deserve to thrive! I am here to to be a powerful visible presence in the world.                                                                                                                                                                 The release has me souring through the clouds!

      I share this story with you today, dear one, to hold space for you to consciously seek out and know your deeper truth. We are all more than our wounds born from old stories and programing. Consider asking yourself; What ‘story’ am I still perpetuating that is no longer serving me?  I encourage you to lovingly give yourself permission to feel and release the old painful story(s). When you do, the promise of movement and liberation will be yours! The space of truth that opens up within you will be magical!                

   I encourage you to take up this journey! On second thought….

I Dare you!
