We will grow and expand, experience and be very different then who we knew ourselves to be. It’s fate, our destiny to reach parts of ourselves and touch this world in ways that spin to wake us up!
Change can hurt. It moves yet immobilizes the recipient, causes fear, strikes the funny bone and we all know, the funny bone is not so funny! Change is scary and dismissive from what we once had and worked so hard for. At one time, our life felt comfortable and abundant and then suddenly, what we knew to be true, secure, and safe is ripped from underneath our feet and we’re changed. Just like that! We are changed; emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually, biologically, physiologically, our chemistry is different, our location is unfamiliar, our mind is twisted, our thought process upside down, our perspective obliterated, all of it, changed-
Perhaps, now looking back through the terrorizing cycle we can begin to see through all that, we become a little more whole then we were before, much greater than from the start of the spin. Maybe that’s why change becomes so necessary and an integral part of vitality, because it brings us to a more profound and prolific state of being, whether we like it or not. It’s the command of fate. Fate comes in and spins the wheel of life, tosses you to and fro, spits in your eye, stings where it hurts, then leaves you just as quickly as it came in and you’re changed.
Change will chip away at the ego, lore the inner child out frantically and brings us closer to God. We pray when change comes screaming through the door, we shrink back within ourselves and become ever so vulnerable. Being vulnerable can be scary because you’re exposed in truth. You are required to be completely honest and really look at what’s in front of you, what's real. The truth is, change is reality and reality can suck sometimes, yet it continues its cycle of life with or without you and in spite of itself. You have no choice but to be softer with yourself and your circumstances. Life now becomes a tender place in time where you let go of defenses, drop masks, abandon agendas, and sink into your truth, the truth that is pure and simple. It's an experience of self that is stripped down to its essence in a complete, all-encompassing magnificent moment, that is all you, the whole you.
It takes courage to change, to stand completely as you are in the present moment that you are. It means you must be willing to disarm the self in an intimate moment of connection. It is the sum total and complete feeling system of your inner strength, whether it’s fully accepted and integrated or not. To allow change is to be vulnerable, to be real, to be honest, to exist in this world in truth, to reverberate within your cells and this world, even after you're gone. You can taste truth in your mouth. It's powerful and when it penetrates your being, it releases the energetic blocks that held you back. That's why it makes you shake or feel scared or even cry... It’s a process that reveals who you are at the essence of creation.
So, to change, to feel vulnerable, is actually the energy that's needed to recognize and realize your full potential inside your complete, authentic self. That is your power and your power is immense, it's humbling and it deserves great honor on your path to destiny.
