I HAVEN’T BEEN THAT NERVOUS IN A LONG ASS TIME.
Tonight, I mean. When @traverboehm
and I went live on his weekly zoom call.
“I’m so embarrassed to have been seen so nervous,” is a thought I would have had in the past. Because then I judged this sensation as imperfect and broken and; therefore, I disassociated it from the me I wanted you to see.
Now? I was nervous and that makes me human and it’s so fucking fine.
What have you tried to saw off your existential body of feeling? Vulnerability? Jealousy? Judgement? Weakness?
Hate to break it you, but it’s all you—the contempt, the insecurity, the feeling of powerlessness. And the sooner the women I work with realize it ( and agonizingly so), the sooner shadow can illuminate.
When we stop trying to pretend we’re not nervous or resentful or “prematurely feeling”, we get to allow for wholeness.
Listen here, there’s a method to the process. When feeling your shadow you gotta be:
1️⃣conscious. No one is trying to vomit reactionary spew, here. Processing and expressing shadowy emotions has to be conscious and intentional.
2️⃣kind. So damn kind with what you find. It manifested inside of you for a reason ( the shame, resentment, self-loathing.) Can you kiss those wounds? Try it.
3️⃣patient. So patient with this process. It’s a delicate and fragile road. It helps to have someone who can light your way. I can help.
I’ve asked before but I’ll ask again: what is the ONE feeling you turn your nose up to? Throw in the junk drawer? Roll your eyes at?
That’s the one. That’s your way home. Tell me here👇🏼. What won’t you allow yourself to feel?

God made each of us unique.
While it doesn't matter what people think of you! It matters because it tells you more about them then it does you!
I have had my fare share of naysayers and guess what sometimes they are extended family or people who you have never met.
Guess what - it doesn't matter!
Be who God called you to be! Do it well! 💓
The metrics of success are largely seen as wealth, appearance and fame. They require hard work over time and to disregard present gratification for the hope of permanent future happiness.
On another side, relationships and healthy hobbies are activities that enhance both present and future happiness. They connect us with the important people and create a healthy lifestyle while developing certain skills during our leisure time.
But overall it's easier to choose none of these, and just reach for a cigarette...
Why are you carrying so much burden?
Isn’t it so much easier to walk when we have nothing at all to carry? Adding on a small bag onto our shoulder is easy, but now try adding on more and more of the same. What happens, then? It surely does become unbearable after a while. Isn’t it? Haven’t you seen many people struggling with their luggage on the airports? No amount of trollies, rolling bags, pull ons, technologies, etc. can make this cumbersome task any easier for them. Only the ones who have learnt to travel light seem to be happily moving ahead. Isn’t it? The same philosophy is true in life also. No matter how much we may deny this truth, we are all carrying so much unnecessary emotional baggage. In fact, the more we age, the more it all seems to grow. The trauma, the loss, losing loved ones, the agony, the pain, etc. weigh heavy on our hearts. How can a person who himself feels so fragile be in a position to help anyone else? No doubt, in today’s world, people look the other way when they see anyone else in a bad situation. Alas, that seems to be the safest approach to keep one’s sanity intact.
Well, it is truly sad to see people around us who wish to live in such helplessness or denial. We can all definitely do something to fix this situation. It has to start with healing oneself, only then the collective will benefit. When our cup overflows, others can also fill their cups from that. All we have to do is to make a conscious effort to put down all our burdens - one at a time and see how light we will feel afterwards. The next logical question would be to know, how does one achieve that? Dear friends, we can all do this easily by having FAITH in the power above. You will have to believe in the major role played by God, or the Supreme Consciousness, or our angels, or our guides, or our ancestors in our existence. These invisible friends who came with us when we were born, the ones who guide us during each step of our life, the ones who ensure that we function well even when we are asleep, the ones who will help us as we pass on,...Read more ⬇️
