Day 6: What do I need less of?

Day 6: What do I need LESS of?

1) Atelophobia.
The fear of imperfection
The fear of never being good enough.

2) Self-doubt.
No more second-guessing who I am and what I am capable of achieving.

3)Insecurities .

4) Shame.
Living with shame only brings us down. 
Accept that the past happened.
Acknowledge mistakes and learn from them. 
Then - 
Let it go.
Move forward. 

5) Negativity.
Time to focus on the glass being half-FULL.

Day 5: What do I need more of?

Day 5: What do I need more of?

1) Self love.

I need to value myself more.

Lately I’ve been trapped in this cycle of giving people what they want,
even though I know it hasn’t been good for me. 
I need to love all the parts of myself,
and be gentle with the parts that are struggling.
This also means understanding that there will be both good days and bad days;
things that come easily, and things that may take time.
I’ve learnt that loving myself is a choice
that I must make every single day.

2) Confidence.
In my abilities.
In who I am now and the woman I am becoming.
In my future – that the best is yet to come!

3) Faith.
Increasing and unconditional - for every situation or season. 

Isaiah 40:31

4) New Adventures.
For the first time in a few months I've been home bound - which has been good for me. But now I long for trying new things and making new discoveries.

It wasn't just a dream

Have you ever experienced something
so wonderful: -
so brief and fleeting;
all consuming,
that took up so much space in your mind and heart
and that was such a big deal in that moment?

But then when you think about it later;
a few hours,
a few days, 
a month,
or a year,

you wonder if it ever even happened at all?

Open Wounds

"Not everyone is okay with living like an open wound. But the thing about open wounds is that, well, you aren't ignoring it. You're healing; the fresh air can get to it. It's honest. You aren't hiding who you are. You aren't rotting. People can give you advice on how to heal without scarring badly. But on the other hand there are some people who'll feel uncomfortable around you. Some will even point and laugh. But we all have wounds."

Fears and longing

My mentor shared this with me last month. It is a quote from Matt Licata:

“The fear of being abandoned. The shame in being rejected and not seen as you are. The terror of being alone. The anxiety of being dependent on another. The panic of unbearable vulnerability and exposure. The dread of the looming death of yourself and everyone around you. These are the great fears that come as you wake, as you fall asleep, and as you wander along the path of the heart. But, perhaps the greatest fear of all is the fear of being loved, the dissolving of the trance of unlove once and for all. For when you are truly loved, when you are entirely seen, when you are fully held, it is the end of your world as you know it. Life is always seeing you in this way. If you will allow this revelation in, you will never be the same again. You will no longer be able to pretend that you are other than radiant and whole as you are. You will watch in astonishment as the spell of unworthiness is dissolved in front of your very eyes.

While it may seem that this is what you are truly longing for, please consider the consequences of the death of this ancient dream. The game is over. Dare to see that you were never unhealed; that nothing is missing, and that you are fully alive, now. Not after you ‘heal your past’, find your soulmate, manifest a conscious job, get into a ‘high vibration’, or replace the burning with joy. Allow the dream of postponement to end, now. For you are here. You are present. Your raw heart is beating. Your senses are online. Allow the unlovable one, the unworthy one, the ‘broken’ one, and the ‘unhealed’ one to fall away into the soft, tender vastness that you are. To let in the implications of this is utterly exhilarating. And completely terrifying simultaneously. One world is ending so that the true world may appear from behind the clouds of separation. The world of love is here…”
