In the past few weeks I have been trying to find the space and time to write a blog post, finding that I have struggled to “force” something profound and meaningful out of me when sometimes just living is as profound as you need to be in any moment. I have so much desire to serve love to others and to share what I learn on my awakening journey. Even now, I have many ideas of what I could write about but the words aren’t flowing as easily as they have in the past.
So as I sit here with an open heart, energy and time, I decided just to write about where I am currently in my life. That is what’s most authentic and flows from my heart with ease.
Right now I am falling in love. With myself, with other, with my life and family. I am falling in love inside and outside. I am growing and changing and facing my fears as much as I possibly can to continue letting in all of this love.
My inner process has been focused on a feminine and masculine part of me who are also learning to fall in love. They both have desires, needs, boundaries and fears. My feminine part, who I am calling Shai, is emotional and passionate and a true romantic at heart. My masculine part, named Michael, is discerning, intelligent and has a gift of holding 3D tasks. Together, they are balanced and full of love. Apart, they are opposite forces working against one another creating fear, anxiety and projection onto others.
Because of the abundance of goodness in my life right now, I have been focusing on these two parts in order to be able to continue letting it all in. It’s easy for parts to get scared when things are going well. In a dimension where things tend to “go wrong”, we can make predictions ahead of time of what may not work or what we might lose. In that, we lose the moment. We lose what we have in the present and we don’t get everything out of it that we could.
I’m working on not expecting the worse. On not bracing myself for the impact of something bad. But first, I feel the parts that do expect the worst and discover why that is. The more that Shai and Michael vulnerably share their fears with me, the more they will fall in love and fall in tandem with one another. That’s when their gifts can shine and that love can be shared with others.
We talk about inner sacred union a lot for a reason. It’s so important to start within. To grow the glow of love so brightly that it shines through every pore and into those around you.
I found this poem from almost two years ago that I thought was fitting for this! It’s from my masculine too my feminine:
I always thought I was different than the other men
I thought I was protecting you from the other men
Giving you edges
Hiding your feelings
Numbing your reactions
I thought you’d be hurt by the other men
They would crack you into pieces
They would scratch your porcelain skin
They would break your fragile heart
But now I see your strength as a woman
Your empathetic prowess
Your stillness and energy, both
I thought I could hide you as a woman
Under formless clothing
Under quick-witted comebacks
Under disinterest in romance
Maybe now I can support you as a woman
Become the mind to your heart
Become the here to your now
Become the pot to your plant
I’m not meant to be your guard,
But instead your partner
Your partner in this dance
Few know the steps to
Where our rhythms match,
Our hearts unite
And our souls release the energy
Of every star in the nighttime sky
