(Side note - Astrology has been a tremendous tool for me lately. If it calls to you, highly suggest you look into it!).
It mentioned how I’m being called right now to fully accept and own who I am…despite my tendencies to take time alone and go inward. Spot on!!
Moments of synchronicity like this actually feel like the Universe is communicating. And I truly believe it is.
The second synchronistic moment came to me as an urge.
Over the past week, I’d been wanting to see and treat myself with more self-compassion.
I then remembered this 10-day Radical Compassion Challenge hosted by Tara Brachthat I suddenly got the urge to do.
I went into our bedroom and did the 15-minute meditation.
When I returned downstairs to the group, I brought with me a totally different energy compared to the night before.
I felt light. Comfortable in my skin. And instead of being utterly lost in my own heavy experience, I felt full – full enough to show up the way I wanted to for others.
When I feel full, this is when I’m able to come out of my own experience in a way where I naturally and genuinely care about others around me.
I'm not in my head, but in my heart. I ask more engaging questions. I am more pulled into the collective human experience... this is where I love to be.
And what I've found is that the key to unlocking that experience is to come from a place of self-compassion and love.
Because I was now in a more loving and compassionate place with myself, I was energetically communicating this openness, fullness and acceptance with others.
Effortlessly, I was led to a beautiful conversation.
We opened up to each other – and surprise, surprise – she had been going through something similar.
She spoke to me about her own struggles with self-compassion, stress, self-doubt.
And while facing her own heaviness, she was guided to brilliant insights.
Her revelations included this pure acceptance of the human experience as a whole – the good and the bad.
She realized that there wasn’t anywhere she needed to get to. Nothing she needed to accomplish. And no one she needed to be.
She was confirming so many of my own recent revelations.
And as we spoke and shared, I was healing and transforming.
This is the power of conversation.
And this is the power CWIET Time stands for.
It is a reminder that despite the multitude of transformational books, wise gurus, and inspirational content, we are always our greatest teachers.
It can take something as simple as being vulnerable and opening up to others to facilitate our greatest healing and most fulfilling experiences.
That is why raw, honest conversations can be so transformational.
To let others into our own human experience can bring with it such magic.
As you go on your own journey of understanding your relationship with yourself, and transforming it into one filled with self-love and compassion – remember that there isn’t anything you necessarily need to figure out.
Be curious. Get comfortable with uncertainty. Have fun uncovering layer by layer who you really are. And have even more fun as you watch even that change and evolve, as you play with the impermanence of life.
Simply show up, open up and connect to the silence of the heart that demands nothing from us except for a quiet, gentle nudge towards our destiny.
