One transformation at a time… one baby step after baby step, then a few mighty leaps of faith. Lots of prayer, lots of ceremony, asking for help, and lots of self awareness and diving deep into your personal healing. Facing those deepest darkest demons.
Living from your hearts deepest desires- don’t waver from your deep stirrings and dreams- shed, shed and shed some more whatever doesn’t bring you closer to your spirit’s calling. No matter if it hurts. Because it will hurt some, and sometimes a lot. Feel it, feel it deeply, don’t numb it, feel it free.
Confront your fear. Tremble, quake, cry and then face it head on. Seek those experiences which make you quail a little…because often that which you fear most is what you most need. And do it again. And again, because practice makes perfect. Your fear can free you.
Surround yourself with those who believe, who are transforming too, who see and dream of a positive and beautiful new world, who cry with you, and laugh with you, and create with you. And who kick your fearful, staying small ass a little when you need it.
And knowing, that you transform one facet at a time. A diamond isn’t formed in a day, it is subject to eons of pressure, heat and transformation. So you find you heal and transform one place, and inside you find another place of stuck, of scared, of anger and smallness and lack of faith.
And you start all over again.
Imagine a world of all of us catterpillars turned butterflies, phoenixes rising from ashes, carbon of the dead self transformed into diamonds, veins of beautiful crystals spewed from the most violent of volcanic magma eruptions.
I have transformed, and I hit a wall. Loss of faith, and the daily reminder that faith is not lost, faith is built, one tiny transformation at a time. Time to shed, time to dismantle another outdated structure of belief in this lifetime. Time to cry and grieve that loss too. Let it go, and believe as you have before, that there is light beyond that wall you have smashed yourself into one too many times.
Make magic. Again and again. We make magic every day, in every breath, in every choice, in every thought.
Thank you thank you thank you.
That is all I have. Thank you again and again. For teaching me. For showing me. Thank you.
