is for Truth
One of the things I most love about my life, and for which I’m most grateful, is how connected I am to guidance. I believe there is so much available to us; both from our higher soul selves and from angels, guides, and the whole stream of supporters I call my Beloved Benefactors.
At the beginning of the year I got very clear guidance that it was time for another round of evaluation as so much more became available to us from a spiritual perspective. In order to embody as much of our fullness of Being possible, and to act in alignment with our multidimensional selves, we’re asked to step up. But the twist is that rather than being some kind of new responsibility to shoulder, what we’re actually being asked to do is live more authentically, more fully, more truthfully in our joy.
I was asked to take a truthful look at every aspect of my life and evaluate it. Not from a harsh sense of self-judgment bemoaning that things aren’t where I want them to be. But from a truthful place, noting all the places that were not what I preferred, but also which were simply okay, or merely known and comfortable. Because simply ok isn’t okay anymore – we’re called to move into wonderful. Into what delights. Into what inspires us outward towards our most expanded edges. All the places our joy points are.
And so I’ve been doing that evaluation. And while there is so much about my life I love and I feel extraordinarily blessed, there are indeed places that aren’t the joy points I want to live from.
Of course with such realizations there is some sadness; some oh-crap-now-what? thoughts; some knowing that once you’ve seen a truth about yourself there is no un-seeing it. So in many ways it’s been a kind of tender place I’ve been playing in this year. Knowing that it will get better surely – I have absolute trust about that – but also wanting to honor this time of truth.
David Whyte is a favorite poet and I’ve been taking great comfort from these lines of his:
“As long as you can feel that gravitational pull and as long as you can speak it, then you’re on your way home. And the interesting dynamic is that sometimes you only understand your conversation through exile and feeling really far away from yourself and your world.”
And I’ve also been enjoying my connection with Archangel Gabriel, who is often known as Lily of Love, Trumpeter of Truth. I love those appellations! I also feel great affinity and alignment with the energies of Gabriel as messenger, communicator, artist.
This is one of my favorite depictions of Gabriel, which is a stained glass from a church in Dublin.
Dear Truth –
I love how we’re all invited into our own knowing of our own truths. That encouragement into discernment that says this is MY alignment and there is no need for it to be anyone else’s. I know there are those who call something Truth and then use it to hide behind and as a measure of belongingness or exclusion of others, but I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t find that definition in the cosmic dictionary. I love how things are set up so there are visceral clues when one hits upon a truth – that inner knowing, that YES!, that excitement. I love how you are always calling to really honor what we know, and yet always continue to reach into a more expanded view, reminding us that nothing is static. And I thank you for making an appearance in my dream last night – that was awesome! Love you!
What about you? Feeling like certain aspects of your life need a little extra attention? Feel connected to your guidance? Do tell – you know I love to hear.
