So often we think we have to be doing something in order to gain love, appreciation, respect, from those around us.
When in actual fact, what we all deeply desire : love, appreciation, respect. Does not authentically arise from reciprocation of a doing act. It comes from our essence, which can be expressed by simply showing up in our authenticity. Which often does not mean actively forcing some outward expression. It can simply come from gifting others your absolute presence and connection.
I recently had a beautiful dear sister express how grateful she was for my presence around her, simply being in my energy field has supported her so much come more into her own sense of power; and align back with her truth. I wasn't coaching her, or trying to do anything to her, I was simply showing up unwaveringly in my raw truth, not compromising my self; in the slightest to pander to her insecurities, just holding my power, strength & truth. Being a supportive listener & a true friend. There has been no 'doing' act - its simply a 'being' state, which we so often underestimate.
This, my friends is the divine feminine at her finest. She does not have to do, she just is. People feel her presence, they are intrigued and not sure why, but they know they want to be around her beautiful shining light. She loves her self, this oozes from her pours. She is magnetic. And she is not trying to prove herself in any way. She just is.
Another friend recently emailed me saying how the time I spent with her at her house a few months ago, was so transformational for her tapping back into her sexuality after shutting down this part of her self after a traumatic break up. We were so authentic with each other and present to one another and we had so much fun. We created fun that arose from the present creative flow of life like singing, dancing, sexy photo shoots.. Nothing forced just natural flow of life. Simply honoring the fun and playfulness that was there naturally waiting to be tapped into. No force, just flow.
We often under estimate the power of our presence. And feel like we have to explain everything, and figure it all out, plan it all, schedule it all. But we got it all wrong.
By simply showing up, in our raw vulnerability. And allowing our light and energy to do the talking per say. Rather than running around trying to force things, create situations that feels fake and forced, and entertaining our minds with intellectual bull shit...
The true gifts we can give each other arises from spontaneous moments of authenticity. When we are fully showing up in our realness, behind the masks. Behind the titles of what we 'do' in the world, behind the stories we tell ourselves about who we are.
And the more we do this; the more it ripples out to all those around us. It gives those around us permission to also just take a huge sigh of relief and be like 'thank fuck I don't have to prove anything, you will simply accept me for just being me'.
This is what we all ultimately crave!
So often in our patriarchal driven society we are faced with the question: "Soo..... what do you do?" When people ask me this I cannot help but laugh. "What do I DO? Well right now, I am sitting in front of you, feeling extremely bored by your question". Is my usual response. Ha ha. Maybe a bit arrogant, but hey...no holding back.
I don't care about what people 'do'... I care about your soul. What lights up your soul, who are you in this exact moment of time. These are the conversations we need to start having...the rest is just vibrations of sound chatter that is entertaining our minds, while our energy bodies exchange feelings of trust & scope each other out. Sometimes this is needed, but if the connection stays there, then it soon fizzles to boredom.
Here is to actively stepping up in our lives, and realizing WE ARE THE GIFT. Simply us; in our fullness. And letting this manifest however it wants to. For some showing up in our authentic feelings, whether it be of vulnerability, of sadness, of joy, of pleasure...whatever is present and REAL is the gifts you have to share in every given moment! REALNESS is where it is at.
In your next social interaction, try staying present with your body, your breathe. And feel the effect it has on others. By staying calm; in your body and feeling a deep sense of gratitude for those around you. You will be surprised the effect it has over others. Less talk, more being. Sharing from your heart, and soul. Allowing your true feelings to be expressed, not saying your fine when you are actually feeling not fine. Seeing one another for who they truly are, as reflections of all you are. Knowing we are all one in this journey together.
So much love, lovers.
