What does it mean to be seen, really seen? For me that would be showing up 100% as my playful, fun, creative, spiritual self all the time (loving the parts of me I’ve labeled as the good, bad and the ugly). Once I started loving the parts of me I thought weren’t good enough or were not accepted I got to move into a place of more love and less and less fear.
Since posting on my Facebook timeline yesterday a bit about this topic, I got so many positive comments and messages that I’m inspired to write this post and explore the topic further.
With all your encouragement I know I’m not alone, you’re not alone, we’re not alone. Sharing my whole story would be a bit long winded so I’ll save that for another day and stay on topic with the theme of 'being seen. '
I’m afraid if I come out of the closet I’ll be seen as too woo woo, too far out there and just plain crazy! LOL And yet the irony is all through my 20’s and 30’s I never cared much about what others though and always beat to my own drum, so whats changed? I think whats different now is that this next ceiling I’m breaking through is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. As part of the awakening process, the ego dies a slow death and then only the soul can be left to express itself truly, its kind of scary because there is so much unknown and the ego likes to keep the status quo and will fight, kicking and screaming until there really is no other option. This was quite a process for me and didn’t happen over night, there is no pink pill for “fear of being seen” LOL at least not that I found, so a part of it was creating a safe place for healing in my home and daily rituals.
I remember when I was a kid and I would just play and express myself and be so happy in my skin doing the things I loved to do like paint, draw, read, write, play out in nature, as an adult I want to come back to that place where the unique expressions of my soul are welcome and supported by myself and others.
So if you are hiding and playing small spending some time getting to know your limiting beliefs is a good start.
Spending a bit of time daily to reflect on the parts of myself I rejected and I don't want to share and the parts I do, looking at the parts of me that leave me empowered when I express them... I also recommend having a guide or coach on your team to be there with your through this process as that is also one of the things that really served me well.
I’m available to support other women now that are in this place of hiding to be a guide that holds space and compassion for the real you to be safe to be birthed now. The world needs you to shine the way only you can!
