I've worked with hundreds going into thousands, of people in workshops, hypnosis sessions and intuitive sessions. This has inspired the Letter to your Secret Soul. I hope it supports your path, wherever you may be.~
So there's this thing that can happen with creatives and spiritual people. At some point, we start to notice that we stand out.
It can be fun as a kid but then sometimes a teacher, family member or another kid may say," You're WEIRD!" or "Who do you think you ARE?" "STOP talking! Stop ACTING OUT!" that inner light, that amazing shine quiets down.
We start to give away our goodness, maybe feeling we are not good enough or TOO much.
We shut own. We help others. We let ourselves get taken advantage of. We GIVE way TOO much AND we don't expect or receive much back. Oh we are SO focused on being the "good one" or somewhere inside we might believe we need to be of service to be worthy. On th opposite end of the pendulum we might take on the "rebel" persona, who...yes is still hiding and hurting themselves with their anger.
IF we are lucky we secretly, like mad scientists develop our talents and gifts away from prying eyes. Research possibilities, talk to Spirits, seek the Beloved, daydream, sing, make art, fly in our dreams and hang out with aliens. We let just enough SQUEEZE out so we can survive but realize sooner or later...this S*&T doesn't cut it.
It's not that we can't do a cubicle, or a job. We can usually do them REALLY well. We can often do many things well. Even FAKE that its ok that our SOUL is shut away most of the time...Some though, get headaches, feel sick, get fatigue...
EVENTUALLY we wake up. Sometimes in layers of awareness. Other times a BOOM slap to the REALITY that we CANNOT GO ON LIKE THIS. A lay off. A break up. Divorce. Illness. Death of loved one. We WAKE UP.
We seek out our tribe. We start to walk our talk. We feel better. More understood. We start to make our music, dance our dance and commune with kindred Souls. Its a great phase and we rejoice. We travel back and forth..until ONE DAY.
Our BRILLIANCE hits us. ROCKS us to the CORE. We cannot speak. Our BRILLIANCE. The Spark of God within just SHAKES US UP.
Rocking us awake. Just hits us till we are in the ground, aching because we are meant for SO MUCH more...We have been hiding and settling and pretending. We can't anymore. When you break down like this, not many will be able to hold you because..let's face it..they may not have embraced their OWN Soul yet and can't fathom cradling yours. Forget them all for now...
This pain breaks you OPEN into another existence. I know mine has. There was no human to wrap understanding arms around me. No one to tell me it would be ok. No human one that is. My inner self stepped up even grander and wiser and swept me up in a LOVE that I have never known. She whispered my sacred promise to myself. I knew I would never be the same again.
It makes you realize that you have a deep covenant with your Soul. You have chosen to incarnate at this time for a particular mission and given unique gifts. NO ONE else on this billion peopled planet can do what YOU do, the WAY you do it.
FEEL YOUR magnificent talent. Your love. Your passion. Your GIFT. Promise you will allow it to shine brightly. That you will sing loud again, dance till you can't, write your book, speak to others, recite your poetry and share the art of your being with those that ARE waiting for YOU. It's not self-centered. It excludes no one. We all have something to give. Something to share. Some shine in structured places and others on grassy hills. Some shine quietly and others under the stage lights. The important thing is please, don't leave this life without letting your SOUL shine full FREAKIN throttle. Be ALL IN. BE ALL IN.
We've made agreements. We all have a part. let's BE ALL IN.
Love you passionately sacred community.
