I have this image of you with this incredible light.
This light follows you. It shines in the steps before you. You close your eyes and you see it still. This light of yours is powerful and beautiful. I have this image of you so you can hold the belief that you, too, will see this light that I see in you. We may have turned off the light some time along our path. Or perhaps it’s only been a slow burn recently. I believe it’s time we uncover. Unfold and discover. Blow off the dust that holds our shadows and fears and turn that into a powerful flame.
I had this vision of turning yourself on.
Turning yourself on to the light that resides within you and calls you forth to your passion, your dreams, your sense of divine self. This vision held the belief that we as women deserve to live lives that turn us on. Lives that become rich with thoughts of desires and purpose. We fill our cups daily with practices and rituals of love for ourselves. We treat ourselves to compassion and deserving gratitude like we do our children or loved ones. We indulge in the pleasures of simply forgiving ourselves.
What would be on the other side of this beautiful turned on life? Who is the woman that would be standing on the other side of that compassion and forgiveness? Isn’t it worth the practice to discover what really lies underneath the fears and the shadows and the hesitation? I believe that we as women will change the world. It begins first with our own world. If we change our thoughts and play a tape that fills our hearts and minds with love and acceptance for who we are and what we bring to the world, then we could begin to shift the energy around us and in others.
It takes great courage to begin that journey of getting to know oneself. I know the fear can become bigger than the love at times. But that, too, will pass. Step by step we start to feel the familiarity of letting go and releasing the past that hurt us, the present that may not be what we expected, and the future with the fear and surprises it may hold.
We begin to forgive ourselves for the messy house when we just sit and read a book instead. For the yoga practice that fills our spirits when the kids are being put to bed. For the simplicity of no longer allowing the voice inside to belittle us. Hurt us. Tell us we aren’t worth it.
You are not here to suffer, lovely.
It is in these moments of self care practice that we turn the light on. We become grounded in this body that has held us, healed us, and supported us for years. We start to see our life as an abundant force of magic and opportunity. We lift the veil that has kept our eyes focused on the shadows at our feet.
I invite you to join me for 30 days of discovering. Creatively releasing. And patiently allowing. This class is meant to guide you through this journey of truly loving who you are. I want to help you get to a place where the voice inside encourages, supports and loves. Isn’t it time for you to feel that kind of love?
This is a safe place to dive into the parts of yourself that need the attention and the forgiveness. I believe the first step in changing your life is the step you take with how you love yourself. Let me guide you through the steps that I took, and continue to take everyday, in this journey of self acceptance and loving who you are. This is big. It was big for me, and my life hasn’t been the same since. I invite you to join me.
There’s just one week left before we begin. The first step is always the toughest. But I promise, the other side is so damn worth it.
