Today I felt inspired to send a message of love to you, and a reminder.
A reminder of the beautiful being that you are (you have always been and that you will always be).
If you haven't heard this lately, I am here to tell you how magnificent and completely LOVED you are.
Even in your darkest moments, in the shadows and heaviness.
Even in those moments when you feel cut off and disconnected from your light and your spirit.
Remember that we are here to experience the fullness of life in these human bodies.
The good, the bad, the ugly.
And when we remember to become more alive in the body through the breath, movement, voice, creativity and self-care, we are able to face those shadows and challenges, embrace them and move through them with grace, ease and wisdom.
It is no easy process. It takes work and dedication. It is my daily work. I was always one to stuff my real feelings inside (anger, disappointment, rage, sadness, guilt) and trick my loved ones into thinking that all was hunky dory.
It was easy for me to push away my emotions and numb myself from the pain. Raw vulnerability exposed my weaknesses and my humanness.
It is easy to skip vulnerability altogether. Not anymore. Let's dive in together!
And since you are here on this journey with me, you understand and embrace the fact that YOU possess the power and wisdom to create the life of your dreams and live your best and boldest life.
You know what it is like to feel complete joy and gratitude in your body. You are hungry for more expression, creativity, sensuality, power, and LOVE!
You understand (or are at least open to) the idea that in order to transcend our fear, doubt, worry and darkness...we must be willing to celebrate our vulnerability and feel the fear and the rawness of our experience.
One of my all-time favorite interviews that Oprah Whinfrey has ever done was with author and researcher, Brene Brown, on Super Soul Sunday just a few months ago. She talked about how courage is born through our vulnerability.
Here is a clip from this interview about fear, vulnerbility, and why we are terrified of our joy.
I have heard from many of you how much you appreciate the vulnerability I express on the blog, in my weekly e-mails and newsletters, and in classes and workshops. That you appreciate my encouragement and love as you move through your own fears and blocks.
We are all in this together.
My desire is that we are able connect more to that wise, powerful, embodied, sensual and expressive person that we truly are...every day.
