The LightLiving Challenge – Day 15
May 1, 2013
I start today’s video out by sharing my office view:
I got my first website clients! So excited!!!!!!
So continuing from the big wardrobe audit yesterday, I picked 5 items of clothing to release:
1. White teeshirt – hand-me-down
2. White wifebeater tank top – had a friend bring these down to Argentina with her for me about a year ago.
3. Truth tank top – bought at Yoga West in LA; LOVE the affirmation (see below)
4. Purple long sleeve top – got at trunk sale ~4 years ago
5. Bald Eagle feather – gift
[I’m having video issues and have been unable to upload today’s video to youtube, but here are all my other videos in case you haven’t seen them]
It was interesting reading the inside label of #3, the white Truth tank top – I’d forgotten the affirmation it had on the inside, which was part of my reason for buying it in the first place; and this affirmation is EXACTLY what I’ve been doing lately:
I was never comfortable being my authentic self with my dad. I would just shut down while I was around him, even into my late twenties. I began dealing with the situation energetically a few years ago, working on healing it on my end, and as I did that he began to contact me less and less, which was very interesting to observe. Now that he’s transitioned off this planet, I don’t have to deal with him anymore; but I still had the deeply ingrained, protective ego habits of squelching my authenticity, wisdom and power. No more!
My commitment to my own authenticity and expression has been tested this past month and a half. You see me go off in the video, slightly perturbed, about someone’s questioning as to why I haven’t taken Kriya initiation or Discipleship yet. The short answer: I don’t feel called to either, and I am following my heart. If my heart doesn’t give a big YES/I LOVE IT! then I’m not doin’ it.
I know that I still have some healing to work out around this topic due to my reactivity, but my whole healthy and beautiful empowerment and authentic expression thing is still fresh! I don’t need people trying to push me into conformity as I’m trying to overcome years and years of conditioning and fear to live my soul’s truth…
I also point out something I think is quite true: “Love is acceptance and appreciation, not judgement and unsolicited advice.”
A lot of people out there don’t know how to love.
And a lot of people out there don’t know how to love themselves.
