Do you have an important message to share with the world? Are you sharing it?
Sometimes the messages and the acknowledgement that we most need to hear ourselves become the very messages that we most need to share with the world and our tribe too. Because often our shadow is also our clients shadow. So if we don’t shine a giant sun sized torch light on our own shadow, they will hide in our shadows. And for me this week, my fear of being seen and speaking to the world in the face of intense opposition and the memory of war (when my heart so deeply yearns for love and connection) was well on the cards. So this week, I thought I’d share with you a little something and a few promises I wrote to myself as a re-affirmation of the game I want to play and the loving letting go of the one I don’t. Because I have a feeling there might just be something in it for you too. I fucking love you. Ok here we go...
Sister (& the brothers I know are secretly reading this too), in the noisy world that is, the world needs you to be louder.
No more waiting in the back of the line because someone’s need is more urgent than yours or their voice is louder than yours, your time and your turn comes now.
No more putting everyone elses wounds and feelings above your own and staying silent for fear of upsetting someone or something and taking their shit on as your own. With love, put it down and let it go. And fill yourself back up with the magic that is you.
No more staying silent for fear of being judged and condemned.
No more staying silent for fear that you are not enough, until that point of perfection that never comes.
No more needing more time to be “ready.”
No more acquiescing to silence to allow someone “who knows more than you” to claim that place on that stage where in fact you know you felt the calling that your voice was needed and you dearly wanted to speak but you didn’t. So they did.
No more waiting until you’re healed, until the enemies have gone and the battlefield has returned to green before you’ll step onto the field. It is time to send love and compassion to our wounded brutality, within and without and choose love.
It’s time to find the strength of your inner warrior, but minus the wounds and the pain of separation.
You can choose to be at war, or choose to be a living embodiment of love and living that love.
For you ARE ready. You are ALREADY perfectly everything you need to be. You have a voice and your voice matters way more than you know, right here, right now.
So speak it sister (& brothers) and speak it louder.
Because there is need for those centuries and eons of knowing you hold within need to be louder.
The collective feminine, the whole world of women out there is screaming out for your wisdom, your love, your gifts, your truth and every incredibly beautiful, amazing thing that you are, from your vulnerability to your fierce mumma warrior strength, to your luscious heartfelt sensuality. From what worked to what spectacularly didn’t, I want to hear it all. Warts, scars and all. I want to hear you! And every perfect, magical, piece of wisdom that lies within you. They know it too in their hearts, but they need to remember. And they are every where you go. Be their bright, shining reminder.
Right now, can you feel them? The women of the world, who know they need you, are still straining their ears trying to hear you, to see you, to find you in a world filled with so much noise. They need you to be louder. They need you to speak louder. They need you to be everywhere. They need you to rise up above all the challenges, the doubts, the pain, the bullshit and claim your space on the stage that is the world that you know is yours. And be love.
Be you. Be the gift that you are. Be all that your heart yearns to be. And share the living, loving embodiment of that message that you are and you came here to teach.
You are so fucking perfect, exactly as you are. And I fucking love you. All of you. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!
Right here. Right now. The world needs you. Exactly as you are.
So go out there and stand proud. And be FUCKING LOUD!!!
Yes there is a commercially clever way to share your message to bring more people into what you do and a way to share your authenticity that emphasizes the lesson that came from the "what not to do" moments of life, not just the process while you're in it and lost. But what the world needs more than another perfectly scripted Miss America stage performance is you speaking from your heart and moving with what inspires you. What's one way this week that you're going to commit to doing more of that and one action you're going to take to share it?
I love you :-)
