Do you feel seen?
There is a difference between cockiness and confidence. I recognize I have a true gift in connecting to people on a spiritual level and as I have dived deeper into this gift, the more I have noticed certain people not being happy about it. I had someone early in life tell me, some people are not going to like you simply for existing and that has rung true for me on a number of occasions.
While I’m nowhere near perfect, I have come to understand a few things about myself. I don’t need to water myself down in order to please people. My platform is about authenticity and vulnerability and I intend to keep sharing that side of me with you all, no matter what anyone thinks. I finally feel seen for the spiritual being I have become and that makes so happy.
I continue to grow. I continue to learn. I may make mistakes along the way, but each mistake is an opportunity for growth. It’s an opportunity for me to reflect. I recognize my power now and use it for community advocacy, for healing, and for guiding people in becoming their best selves.
I’m not here to waste time. I want to work to better the world and that begins with us working on ourselves internally. What I have come to see more clearly is that I have the ability to facilitate much of what I have talked about in this post for others, and I intend to continue doing that more intentionally.
Regardless of what people think about us, we have the ability to heal ourselves and shine through that process. We have the ability to be seen for who we truly are. The moment I stopped allowing people’s thoughts about me to puncture my soul, my life changed. I knew the love I had learned to have for myself could never be threatened by those that are not here to nurture my soul. After all, I am my ancestors’ manifestation work. I am my medicine. I am my spiritual bath. I am my sun and my moon. I am all of this because I am one with the universe. I am worth of being seen and SO ARE YOU.
Now I ask you, do you feel seen? Heard? Understood? If you don’t see feel this way, ask yourself why and then think about what it would look like to invest in your own happiness… to invest in your own power.
