You don’t have to feel good everyday. It doesn’t mean you’re failing. It doesn’t mean you’re falling into some kind of downward spiral.
Sometimes we need to wallow, to cry, to hide. To be angry, to be sad, to be incredibly irritated to no avail.
Sometimes we simply cannot navigate our way out of a feeling, no matter what tools we have.
Sometimes it runs so deep we need to sit in it, to move through it.
There is a reason that we need to feel the shadows of the deep. We are discovering the core of our humanity. We are feeling into the discord between how our soul sees us, and how our human-ness sees us.
Because our souls know our divinity, our power, our grace – our greatness.
It is the human veil of perception that prevents us from seeing ourselves in the same light. Perhaps though, if we sit in the depths long enough and we stop resisting the urge to fight, if we are simply ok and accepting of how we feel right now… the darkness will start to fade. The veil will simply lift.
It’s the energy of acceptance, of love, of compassion, for the most wounded parts of ourselves that transmutes the darkness of it. That brings the light. Because every part of you is deserving of that love and acceptance. It is often the darkness that catalyses and unleashes your true greatness.
Right now, the doing-ness of our lives has shifted and many of us are left with more space… and for a lot of us, time to delve deep into our existence simply hasn’t happened before. We’ve been able to avoid it. Until now.
If this is you, and you’re feeling uncomfortable, choose to sit in the un-comfortability. If you resist, you are resisting the realisation of You and unknowingly cultivating an internal conflict, a war inside. You are leaving the woundedness you feel to grow, to rise and eventually explode into your reality in unknown and less than desirable ways.
Time to get comfortable in the uncomfortable. Time to embrace all the ‘good’ things, and all the ‘bad’ things.
There is nothing inherently wrong with you because it isn’t all rainbows, sunshine and unicorns.
It’s being ok, when the whole world fades away, and you are left with yourself. The wholeness of you.
I’ve spent plently of time sitting with my shadows in this life, which in truth I have recently realised was something that I judged myself for; it made me feel like there was something wrong with me. What I have come to realise is that it’s quite the opposite, in fact, it’s one of the most powerful things any of us can do. I am embracing the fullness of my being. I am acknowledging and loving the wounded parts of me that broke me open, because those cracks are the very reason I am able to see the light.
Whatever is happening in this moment. Whatever you feel in this moment. Be in this moment.
Sit back, surrender and get comfy with the deepest parts of you.
Going in deep, is the way through.
And as they say… World Peace begins with Inner Peace.
With hope and love from the depths,
