Opening up to Joy Again
Believing in something bigger and letting go within to truly experiencing it is an unbelievable experience. For so long I knew intellectually that I had a purpose to help others, open others to see the possibilities in their own lives, but also to open them up to something bigger than themselves - open heartedness as well as love for themselves and others.
But in 2020 and as it continues into 2021 being inward more there has been space created to allow for that head knowing to align me within to my true purpose in life - love. While I had been in my head for so long I was not able to truly allow, open up to and/or receive my purpose to thrive due to my own hesitation to truly believe it. However love opened me up. Love made me whole. Love grabbed me by the heart and let me truly wisely love myself and others the way I never could open up to before. Love really does heal so much but truly it is the spiritual balm we all need. Now more than ever we need to show love to others as well as ourselves during this time when Covid has made us stay home and truly reflect more and more about our own values, needs, and wants and distinguish between them rather than think they are all the same.
Wealth truly is spiritually aligning to our truth as well as knowing we can act it out in the world. What do you need to align to and how can you take this time when we are home to do it?
Showing Joy to All
Happy 2021! What a year 2020 was. With so much uncertainty, anxiety, and stress, we learned to adapt, change, slow down, go inward, spend time with family and let go. With all of that pause I have gotten to a joyous place within knowing that contentment, peace, happiness, and love all are an inside out job. While we all look externally for these things, really they start with us.
As I had more time to go within, be more mindful, and truly trust my own gut through a time when everything outside was different and challenging I realized that there is joy in the little things. There is joy in the mundane, joy in the connections deepening with old friends and new, new partners and friends, but mainly opening up the role of partner for the first time in a way which is whole, deep, powerful, but mainly tender. While the opening happened intellectually 5-6 years ago, my body and spirit only really opened in 2020 due to the work of staying put and naturally letting go of anxiety and fear rather than avoiding those feelings by running around, going to events, and not letting my spirit evolve.
With the down time at the end of the year I realized that the world is full of love if we just open our hearts and spirits to them. We just have to end the mindset of fear and truly open up within to joy by really taking care of ourselves and loving ourselves first not only but not opening up to giving more than we get. It is my new motto for the year.
