The Courage to Speak
Today’s entry was inspired by actress Meryl Streep, on her courage to speak up about important matters at this year’s Golden Globe Awards. I have discovered that finding Inspiration is both joyous and easy when we are open and observing life. Often the subject of speaking our truth channels through me – in my writing, on my shows, and in interviews. Why is that? I feel it is because speaking our truth, the actual truth of our hearts and consciousness, is so very important. Not only for our own lives, but for the lives of others we come across during our life’s journey.
A great quote by Shakespeare, “To thine own self be true” is so incredibly powerful and aligned. So often we feel the pressure to take on the opinions of others we may find as influential, powerful, or higher than us in some way. We may feel the pressure to fit in, to be accepted, to hide in the background so we don’t draw too much attention our way. We start to suffocate, to choke back our emotions, our wisdom, and our truth gets buried deep within as a very silent voice doing its best to be acknowledged.
The cost for this choice is vast and significant. Every area of our lives can be hidden by illusion, and suddenly, one day we don’t have a clue what our lives are all about. We wonder: Where am I? How the hell did I get here? This moment of awareness comes blazing in like a ferocious, burning sun. And then a Miracle happens, if we allow it. We begin to suddenly SEE the illusion, and this is a good thing, because if we can see the illusion, if we can be the observer of what doesn’t FEEL aligned or right for us, then we have the power to change it. We have the power to choose what is best for us!
Many have been brought up and conditioned to feel that choosing what feels right for oneself is…what did they call it? Oh yeah- Selfish! So we got this training along the way, by those in positions of authority who had made the choice to suppress their own truth, mind you, that We are selfish when we do what we Love. So many of us have trusted these hurting, lost humans, and we started to behave as they did. We so wanted to please them. Not a huge surprise that it didn’t take long before we were also sad, confused, angry, and hurting. It would serve us greatly to stop worrying about how anyone else feels we should live our lives, and stop assuming any of those outer voices have any control over our own lives and our own universe.
The unconscious human will then start to project their pain and suffering upon others they feel a sense of control or power over. And yup, you got it! The cycle of sickness and suffering continues, generation after generation. However, if You are still reading this, then there is hope for You. There is consciousness awakening within you, and You’re in a space to let the light in, if You choose. You are remembering that You have the power to choose what FEELS best for You. WHOOO HOOO congratulations!!! I bow with great honor to every soul that chooses to speak their sacred Truth…Thank You!
Take out your journal today and claim some alone time with Source God. Be still in meditation and simply ask: What do I truly want? Just focus on this one question, BE still, and listen to the quiet voice within you that has become so skilled at ignoring. Ignore that chatty pyscho voice that’s loud, obnoxious, fearful, and pushy. Let that voice shrink away in the illumination of Your Light. Listen to that still calm voice; allow this part of yourself to be acknowledged and heard, if only by you, and if only for this meditation. Pay attention to any messages that bubble up in your consciousness. Allow them to have space to BE without the judge in your head scolding them, shaming them, and casting them aside as impossible. Really listen. Be curious, playful, and open.
After you open your eyes from this meditation experience, take a few moments to jot down whatever bubbled up. Write it down! Allow your hand the freedom to give voice to all the inspiration bubbling up for you. Allow yourself permission to play, to dream again. Allow yourself permission to FEEL Your Truth – not your boyfriend’s, not your dad’s or mom’s, not your church or government leader’s truth – Your Truth.
After you finish your journaling excercise, just sit in stillness for a little while, and enjoy this new sacred space you’re entering. This is the space of Your highest Truth!
Infinite Love, Light and Blessings,
