This has been a common theme in my practice:
Individuals who fear showing up in the world because they are not completely healed.
Individuals who want to start that business, that project, that relationship or that dream but are hesitant because they feel insufficient, scared to show their wounds, fearful to show their authentic selves or they feel like a fraud.
But the truth is, as long as we are here in the physical form, we will never be fully healed, so you will be waiting forever to start.
We will never be fully transformed
we will never be fully evolved
we will never be fully enlightened
Take Deepak Chopra for example, or Eckarht Tolle
While we look to them for spiritual and wellness advice because they are considered "enlightened beings" they are the first to admit that they have much to learn, much to transform and much more evolution to step into and that they will be doing this for the rest of their lives.
We will always be healing, transforming, evolving and learning for the rest of our lives so when will you start to show up?
Live right now, wherever you are.
When you are waiting, you are not living.
Life is passing you by every minute that you do not step into your potential.
Live within the chaos, show up within the messiness. Show up WHILE you are healing because this is the most authentic, attractive and relatable place to operate from. You are showing up imperfectly and that's what people need. They do not need this false narrative that western society created where we have to be absolutely perfect. This is a standard that is completely impossible to reach, leaving us with a false sense of defeat.
People need to feel that it is okay to exist exactly as they are right now.
People need to feel that it is okay to be imperfect because imperfect is most authentic and therefore the most beautiful. Showing up within the healing; living within the healing is the most authentic place to exist.
Yes I have wounds (we all have wounds)
Yes I've had pain (we have all experienced pain)
Yes I've experienced trauma (we all experience some form of trauma in our lives)
Yes I've made mistakes (Every behaviour is an attempt at regulating our own nervous systems so be gentle with yourself)
Yes I am brave and courageous for looking at my pain so that I can heal.
And yes I am working through it all to become a better version of myself.
I want you to be proud of exactly where you are right now because it is powerful and commendable.
