I’ve been working with the mantra “I am ready to be seen”, and it was all fine and dandy until this week, when it was time to be seen.
I’m not sure if it’s the effect of the new moon which just passed, but a shift has happened within me, in which I know there is no turning back. I read a lot about how this new moon is about coming out of hiding, that we’ve retreated to heal and now it’s time to come out and share what was learned. I’ve also recently joined a coaching group, and last week on our call there was one blatant theme throughout our stories – we were staying small. We were all hiding out of fear of being seen. It is so easy to stay in our comfort zones and I have spent my entire life hiding parts of myself that this vulnerability feels so uncomfortably foreign. Yet, I now step forward with the intent to let myself be fully seen. Take it, or leave it, ..but it is what it is. I still fear being judged but I have to keep reminding myself that this isn’t about me, it’s about the message. All I can do is ensure that my message is always my truth.
Create, Dear one,
Dig out what is within
Polish it off and put it on display
They may hate it
They may praise it
They won’t get it
You must dig anyway
Start dusting off the gold
which sits upon the shelves of your heart
This is your heart.
