My work around this is to be okay with shining my light and sharing the darker parts of me (and perhaps changing my perception about the “darker parts” and renaming them?). Another piece of this, is to also have things that are private, just for me and being more discerning with what I choose to share and when and if I choose to share it.
To have times of going in and not sharing as much, and times when I am willing and more open to share my heart and my truth. It’s okay to ride the waves and honor my own rhythm, and go at my own speed with my truth practice. Because even though I am modeling how to stand in your truth, I am also just a woman with delicate truths, who must figure out what is okay for her, before I can effectively be an example of standing in one’s truth.
First I’d like to send love to all the people affected by the tornado in Oklahoma, my prayers are with you. I can’t imagine that…
And so last night as I kept painting over that belly, I could feel this beautiful emotional caressing take place, I could feel the love I felt even in the midst of the chaos, I could feel the beauty of being in this place with a life growing inside of you. It was as if I was reclaiming something that was lost.
