The stories we tell ourselves create emotional fortitude or overwhelm.
Internal narratives can also trap us in a world of fantasy and ‘what ifs’ keeping us from showing up fully in the present.
Observe your thoughts and notice which stories you pour energy into. Those stories are the ones creating your feelings of progress or stagnation.
Try this when you catch yourself in the story:
𝘗𝘭𝘢𝘤𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘴 𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘣𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘺
𝘕𝘰𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘧𝘦𝘢𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘵𝘳𝘺𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘰 𝘢𝘷𝘰𝘪𝘥 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘺.
Once you become aware of it, with Practice and time the charge will lessen. This is because you are learning to train your thought process into new ways of being that actually support who you are becoming.
So often, I find myself between worlds.
Sometimes it’s simply magical and sometimes it’s lonely, agitating and frustrating.
I know this place well, at one point I spent years within its womb. Remembering, unlearning, shedding, surrendering and now l am learning how to not only live from my body wisdom, but participate in this world through it without overwhelm.
In these times, I keep breathing into the absolute truth that it’s in the humbling lap of the divine where core and lasting reorganization happens. This is where the Beloved is rearranging what I must show up for.
Trusting the timeline of my heart, cultivating my patience and supporting myself through the process of my edges IS the practice.
Because in this 'in between space' there is nothing known, only that from this ‘chaos’ innovation is birthed.
So, if you find yourself in these spaces of initiatory challenge I want to remind you...
Breathe, don’t try to fix it but rather listen to what it has to say. Get the support you need, not to fix you but to guide you into deeper surrender when the resistance comes. There is nothing wrong with you, this is the process of awakening. It’s from this very place that your own deeper wisdom is revealed, and it is here that divine guidance can truly be felt and anchored in the world.
It’s not on our time but in divine time, what we CAN actively do is surrender the resistance and show up moment to moment for the transmutation unfolding!
Your feelings are valid, no matter what they are.
Right or wrong, evolved or coming from patterns of survivalism.
They are valid and worthy of compassionate love and listening. Dismissing negative feelings because they’re not in their most refined form, or because they don't feel great, is dissociating and compartmentalizing. It further fragments our emotional and etheric body and dishonors the nature of your humanness. It compromises self-trust.
This leads to repression, suppression of voice, and eventually, resentment with self.
Knowing how and when to honor this wisdom within us is imperative, because more often than not, our external relationships cannot meet all of our feelings with compassion. Most individuals can only hear through their own agendas, and because of this, we must be unwavering in how we give our internal ebb and flow permission to BE, whilst safeguarding it in a space to unfold and be witnessed. It is like holding them in a womb of redemptive love.
When your internal world knows it is safe and supported by you, it reveals its wonder and magic. It reveals with greater ease your core stability, and your movement in life becomes more fluid and aligned with your purpose and authentic expression. The more you cultivate the honoring of your feelings, the more you will find them honored in relating with others.
Through witnessing your feelings and allowing them safe passage in their raw form, they can dissolve and reveal their true nature.
Not everything needs to be processed or understood, but everything needs to be compassionately seen, acknowledged and brought into forgiveness with self.
