Whenever we put ourselves out there, be it by opening a new business, performing our music, posting a selfie, showing our artwork, telling our life story to others, or being vulnerable in a romantic relationship, we take big risks because we open ourselves up to the unknown, to something that may not always feel good or safe.
But, these risks are necessary in our expansion as human beings and co-creators with the universe. Not only do we open ourselves up to bliss but also to precious learning experiences that only make that bliss even more possible and more intense.
The trick is not to get consumed by the darker aspects of the contrast we can experience when we are open. Why give away our power to someone (most likely a small minority anyway) that judges and doesn’t appreciate what we have to offer? Compassion towards those who judge is crucial because, as we do sometimes, they are acting from their past wounds and this has nothing to do with the person that is their target.
By doing what we love and expressing fully who we are (this may change over time as we get to know ourselves better), we are living in our highest potential. That is all that matters! The more we hold this positive feeling and we focus on how good we feel, we will not be distracted from our path. No one has power over us, we are our own masters. Even if we were imprisoned or hurt, no one has power over our thoughts and happiness. We can chose to be happy in the harshest circumstances.
There is no need to “work hard” to please others or to be dependent on how they feel about us. If we go with the flow of our authenticity and joy, we will attract others who resonate with us and find value in what we have to offer. The love energy will flow freely, unconditionally, and without demands. Decide to create a beautiful life for yourself today! Nothing can stop you! 💜🌸🙏🌸💜
