Wow! Watch out The View, here comes Dear Empaths! 😊 You ladies are on fire! Episode 3 is jammed pack of goodies. Thank you so much for taking the time to make these recordings. They are phenomenal and this one resonated really well with me. Super gritty.
I accepted the challenge of doing something different and creating change. The pedicure example made sense to me and in order to emit different energy to attract different energy back, I chose to ask my husband to take the kids to ballet/tumbling class last Monday and I decided to go to see a movie, The Post, all by myself for some much needed alone time. I fixed my hair, put on makeup, put on a cute outfit and felt so empowered driving to the theaters. It felt amazing!! I made it all the way to the gas station, then something unexpected happened after filling the tank. My car wouldn't start. 😬 It turned out to be nothing major, thank goodness, but after getting the car to my dads garage, while he was fixing it, there it was... that thing that's at the root of all of my moments that are hidden in my personal dust covered boxes, the disempowering moment that needs validated and loved... I have been a HUGE let down to him because I chose not to be part of his church. Even though I am grateful for my upbringing and see so much beauty in him as a person, an Elder at the Church of Christ, his way of life, his dedication to the Lord, his soulful way of living, I personally also began seeing things in the church that did not resonate with me at all and chose a different path. It's been a challenge and strain on our dynamics, and the dynamics with my family as a whole, but something that Nicole said in my reading came through very loudly in that moment. My homework. She said that having a body in the 3 dimensional world is always hard to some degree, there's always something we're overcoming, and for me to think about or practice and acknowledge that what I'm working towards will have its own set of problems, but they are problems I choose, like I WANT to have them. It's the idea of being able to choose what it is I am going into that fundamentally what the outcome is, the place I am in, that it resonates with me and because of that it becomes easy to take on the challenge and take on the strains and burdens and stretches of making change. So in that moment in the garage with my dad, I first felt my heart sink when the topic of church came up, that feeling of guilt and hopelessness, but was able to shift my perspective and view the strain with softness because I am accepting the challenges of walking away from a very old patterned way of thinking and continue following my intuition, MY truth, which is divinely led.
But it was VERY nice to have permission to feel through that hopelessness, rather than telling myself to knock it off and not go there, I had permission to experience somatic therapy and get to the root of it. That moment was divenly led through you, ladies, so thank you. And what's even more interesting is that the movie I did end up seeing was in my own living room, cuddling with my children, Inside Out, a Disney Pixar movie where an 11 year old girl is battling through emotions after moving from the Midwest to San Fran, and is told from the viewpoint of her emotions, very well written, but embracing and feeling through SADNESS is what provides her break through moment. 💡 As I'm sitting there watching this movie in the comfort of my home, crying like no other 😭, I felt Spirit almost like cheering me on as I totally broke down, because that's EXACTLY what needed to happen to move on. I recognized and embraced my challenge because it is divinely led and what I am becoming as an empath and what I have learned about energy and energy healing resonates with me very well. So thank you Julie, Nicole and Safia, for rapping together and recording it and putting it out there because you are healing people.
Boundaries keeps coming up over and over, so I will be signing up for that before the end of the month. After I'm finished reading The Four Agreements, which Nicole recommended almost a year ago and for some reason I just remembered like 3 days ago.... synchronicity. It's resonating VERY well with me right now. I also ordered the book Safia recommended, so thanks for the tip, Saf.
Love to you all, Ladies of Light!! Xoxo ✌🏻😘🤗
No joke I have recommended "Inside Out" as homework to my clients who are stuck in a place resisting their feelings, so that is SO AWESOME that you allowed yourself to feel how you were feeling AND then you got to see how Riley was set free when she felt sadness and showed her how sadness is what made her connected (to herself and everyone around her!). I definitely think Spirit is helping you along, and I forgive me for using the Biblical trope-- but we do* get help when we help ourselves, via the Laws of Attraction, if we take an action to help shift ourselves, our world will shift too.
Keep on trusting yourself and trust where it is you want to end up, your desires are your best compass in this world.
We will let you know when we do a boundaries class and maybe we will do our next Dear Empaths on boundaries :)
