Goddess I love you and I want you to speak your truth…
This is a message that came to me in meditation this week and I’d thought it may also be medicine for you.
So often we as women hold our truth back. We don’t want to hurt other people’s feelings. In this social media culture of false personas everyone likes to appear “unbothered” which can prevent us from telling the truth. We are bothered. That wasn’t ok. I felt disrespected. My feelings are hurt. I don’t want to do that….
Spirit let me know some of the things I want haven’t manifested because I’m not sharing my truth about what I really want. Expecting others to read my mind or just moving on when they don’t do as I wish isn’t living my truth.
Spirit told me:
“Speak your truth. Share your truth. Say what you want. Ask for what you want. If they can honor it, fine. If they can’t, that’s fine too. But don’t be afraid to ask for what you want.”
I remember watching Iyanla Vanzant speak and she talked about the power of confession. Confession doesn’t have to be in a booth with a priest who assigns us Hail Marys and Our Fathers. We can confess to a trusted friend. We can confess to a therapist or a coach. I like to go to a lake or river and confess my heart’s desires to Oshun. I confess in my journal.
Where can you go to confess? I invite you to share your truth this week with someone or something.
Here are some truths I’d like to confess…
It is Father’s Day and it is my first without my dad. I felt great sadness today. I experience this sadness as a storm welling up in my chest. I long to let go and spend time unpacking the first half of this year, my time with him in hospice. I am sitting with the reality that both of my parents transitioned in less than two years. I am sitting with what that feels like.
Along with this sadness I am feeling excited about the second cohort of women in my Queen Coaching Program. We begin tonight with a ceremony on behalf of our female ancestors.
I am happy to be doing this work again. I hold both of these emotions, sadness and excitement. Grief and a deep connection to my purpose. The sun is shinning yet the rain also falls. I allow both of these experiences to exist and for it to be ok.
That is my truth. What is yours? Whom will you share it with this week?
Goddess I love you and I want you to share your truth.
