Meditation and Reflection
Being a soul that moves into a body is kind of like being a human that moves into a house.
You just kind of have to fall in love with it.
The nooks and crannies, the chipped paint, the floorboards that squeak, and the window upstairs that has a crack in it.
And when you first moved in you took one look at the crack and thought "I need to get that fixed." And then one day as you're moving boxes...
Just as the daylight starts to fade,
You notice a ray of the sun has caught the crack in the window and is gleaming through with such a brilliance you drop your box...standing there in awe, witnessing a ballet of color and light ...and suddenly the realization shines in your mind like the stardust you are.
The window was never broken.
Only made infinitely more lovely with its increasingly complex &
esoteric beauty as time unfolds...
This is my favorite room in the house.
And I know this body is temporary but I am falling in love with all the things I couldn't quite see until adulthood. After sharing a cab with a Cherry Creek alumni I did some reflection on how much progress I've made in my journey of self love. I used to hate my jaw line, nose, high cheek bones and hooded eyes because I idealized European standards of beauty. I now see my bone structure as a beautiful carving of ancestors. I spent years feeling uncomfortable in my skin, getting either made fun of or praised for my boney-physique. I was always an outcast, a "weird kid" ... and if being considered "strange" by the general public taught me one thing it's this:: your perception of self is far more important than anyone else's view, opinion or reaction to you. Everyone is figuring this out at their own pace- give love to others and give love to yourself. #youarebeautiful .
Very in-tune with my inner goddess today. I am so grateful for all the amazing feminine energy lately...from the ladies I see everyday to the friends I haven't talked to in a while, I have so much love in my heart for this divine feminine fire we share.
One of my 2017 resolutions was to be in a committed relationship with myself, heal at my own pace and practice self love. It's safe to say- this is the happiest and most fufilling relationship I've ever been in.
Don't forget to fall in love with yourself first.
