I’ve lived the role of a victim for a long time.
I knew it in my mind and worked to shift it
Yet, it was still stuck
A flavor of it in my nervous system
Very subtle, but still present.
Over the last few years everything was stripped away
Identity, relationships, professional roles
And I was forced to look deeper within
No one to blame
No one to scapegoat
Only me facing me
The more I allowed myself to dive into the body
The more I practiced Kriya
The more I meditated
The more that was revealed to me
Stuck patterning on a cellular level being dislodged, broken up
It’s difficult to describe in words
But I can say that from facing my shadow more light has been revealed
And I am learning to integrate and love all parts
And as I do that deeper states of compassion emerge
Deeper states of love, spontaneous moments of joy
No more dumbing down or being small
Apologizing for who I am
No more feeling like I have to stay quiet and pretend I am less than
For I am a light, I am love, I am divine grace!
And you are too!
Whatever you are going through
Just know that on the other side of the shadow is light
On the other side of pain is joy
On the other side of fear is love
So keep moving forward, keep opening, keep sharing
For you are a beautiful gift to this world!
And gifts are meant to be opened
