I was reminded recently of how multi-faceted humans are. Growing up we quickly get put into a box and think we’re supposed to stay there. I used to think that the safest way to live was straight as an arrow. Pick a direction and stick with it. Follow it through as consistently as possible, all the way to the end. But the truth is, we have layers of diversity within us and oppressing this truth only makes you miserable. You weren’t made to live in a box. You were made to transform. Somedays all I want to be is spirit momma. Living close to the earth, completely connected to my inner sage woman, spending bookoos of time meditating and card reading and listening to the wind. Other times, I want be Beyonce. I go from seriously considering getting off the grid completely and living off the land to planning a possible boob job.
I often have a hard time reconciling these two parts of myself. Sometimes my subconscious reverts back to the limiting box theory and I consider getting rid of one of one them all together. But then I remember I’m not living my authentic truth unless I’m manifesting them both. Now granted, I have to keep them balanced. Too much Beyonce and I’m hustling like a mother ** trying to strive my way to the top. Too much spirit momma and I’m ready to sell all my possessions and go live in the forest. BUT together they are perfect. As is all the parts of me. So before you go divorcing any parts of you, remember that we all have yangs to our yin and it’s okay to express them. You are a transformative creature my darling, and you deserve to live out the fullest expression of YOU. Give your spirit what it needs on any given day, whether that’s more meditation or dancing tipsy with your friends. This world can handle your whole truth. It’s your responsibility to bring it. Please do.
