“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”. – Anais Nin
Coming out the spiritual closet can be terrifying. I know.
My journey to owning my gifts has been an ongoing relationship of love, acceptance and surrender.
I feel that most days I am uncomfortable but in my practice of being human I remember that I am not separate from others.
If anything my gifts brings me closer to connection, trust and vulnerability.
Talking dreams, spirit, intuition and all the things that are still becoming mainstream can be scary but yet invigorating.
I find liberation in my practice through yoga, pranayama, journaling and meditation. I find answers that I otherwise don’t get it in my waking life.
The process to discovering, owning and then sharing our gifts with the world is a delicate journey.
Some people leap right in and for some of us it takes time.
I like to remind myself that on the other side of fear is freedom.
It is a constant practice of sharing my gifts with the world.
This is true for anyone passionate about anything. Artists, writers, creatives, chefs, craftsmanship. It all requires a sense of mastery and surrender.
Letting go of the effect but trusting in the process.
Coming out of the spiritual closet requires:
- Remembering “WHY” we fell in love with the art of spirituality
- Having a vision that we are committed to, i.e. I teach people life-changing spiritual tools so they can live free, transformed and intuitively guided lives supported by the universe.
- Surrender, i.e. surrendering to being present with every moment being a gift to share something beautiful about ourselves in hopes of helping another
- Trust; trusting that there is a reason and purpose for what we feel to be true in our nature and relationship to self and the universe.
Start big, start small. Mainly just start.
The first step begins now.
On the other side of every doubt, fear, insecurity is a new gift waiting to be received.
