✨ Why was I so afraid? As I journey into energy I am unfolding into just how connected and powerful we are as humans. And it feels the absolute opposite of scary. It’s the safest experience within this body I’ve ever known, in fact. 💓 The life force that flows through us has always been ours to protect, clear, direct, and share. There is nothing more sacred. 💫 As someone who loves and appreciates validation, I am so grateful that I trusted myself enough to go where my heart was leading, despite the fact that so many people I love didn’t really get it. ✌️ Because here’s the thing. When it comes to our path, no one ever has to “get it.” When I really got *that,* I “stopped following rules that don’t actually exist.” I began following my guidance instead. And when I cleaned out the energy channels, the guidance did come. 🌟 Pragmatic me asked for more science. Judgmental me said it was too weird. Analytical me wanted all the answers first. Insecure me wanted approval. And while they all chattered away TRUE me stepped forward anyway. She’s a kind of a luminescent badass. 🦄 I used to steer from the “woo,” because I was scared. I had a deep trust in external guidance that was proven, validated or at least unanimously agreed upon...*by others*: experts, researchers, teachers, gurus, educated and certified OTHERS. In my mind, *authorities.* 💖 As for my own “inner wisdom,” was that even a real thing? 🕯But when we make a commitment to live loyally through intuition, our respective paths *will* guide us down some less traveled roads. And many times we are challenged to trust the guidance we get *despite* the way things look, all while the masses declare in unison that a different way is “right.” *That* can feel scary to our tribal human selves. Outside-in versus inside-out. 💔 When I ignore my own guidance to follow the non-resonant “truth” of another I tend to learn through suffering. 💗 So, while I still appreciate philosophy, research, and the innovations of others, the discoveries and experiences of others can not be my primary guiding force. I choose to trust my Divine guidance above all else. I choose LOVE. And I choose ME.
