When deep shifts are happening internally, I'm in my sacred space tending to the preciousness of what's unfolding. Listening, allowing, and cultivating space to birth the new.
A theme that's come up in client sessions this week has been how we tend to our sacred space in integrity.
Without pushing ourselves or expecting too much too soon. Without skipping over or bypassing the depths that are calling for our attention. Without distracting ourselves from the right here, right now.
A space where we allow the sensitive, vulnerable pieces of us to come to the surface. A space that is safe. A space where we can feel the plants, ourselves, the Earth, & the greater pulse of the universe all guiding a beautiful transformation.
And how can we engage with our external world when this is all happening inside? It can be scary at times to not know where it's going or how we will be received.
It's a delicate balance of tending to our internal transformation and being in the greater world. A mastery of stepping into our own medicine.
We can go deep into our space of solitude, protection and privacy. Essential at times for our precious transformation. And the gifts of this are unparalleled.
And sometimes, we get too attached to it, and we hide ourselves. Because we don't know how we will be received. We fear the worst - rejection, abandonment, ridicule, judgment.
Our external world - family, friends, community- may or may not be able to meet or recognize us for who we are becoming. Our tender parts who need safety and love need us to look after them in the interface with the external world.
I, too, have been engaging with people from new vulnerable spaces lately, allowing myself to be seen in new ways.
A part of me expected to not be truly seen or accepted. And I was at peace with that. And at the same time, I noticed I opened in new ways to receive and be received.
And I was surprised. I was seen and welcomed in new ways. The result - I let myself receive that feedback...and I felt myself blossom.
Pure magic. Encouraging me to continue to share, to be seen, & to step into my own medicine.
This is true integration.
A life long journey of continually bringing our becoming into the world. Cultivating our internal sacred space. And letting ourselves be received by those who can see us.
