Welcome to 2023 and the new year!
The energy of this season is inviting us to be seen.
For some, this invitation is to allow ourselves to be seen by others. For some, this is an invitation to see ourselves.
Externally, there will be waves of change happening around us. Those waves of change will be happening regardless of whether we ride the waves or hunker down and let the waves crash over over us.
What will help us navigate these waves is our inner fire.
We’re being invited to the energy of our fire. To nurture our inner fire. To allow our inner fire to expand and rise. To allow our inner fire to be seen.
Our inner fire is fed when we acknowledge our personal sovereignty and take steps to set boundaries and ask for what we need. Sometimes we find that the person who most needs to hear what we need is ourself.
Our inner fire expands when we speak our truth in love. Speaking our truth sometimes looks like words and sometimes looks like actions. Speaking our truth isn’t about spewing our thoughts onto others to shame or 'encourage' them into changing. Speaking our truth doesn't require us to get on a soapbox and share our truths with everyone and anyone. Speaking our truth means getting really clear on what our truth is! Because then, our truth simply flows from us in how we live our life.
Our inner fire wants to be seen. Actually, it wants to shine. Don't worry, shining doesn't mean you have to be a flashy presence in the public eye. Think of yourself as a lighthouse. Just quietly shining in the storm. And if you're someone who loves sparkly glitter, then let your lighthouse shine with sparkly glitter. You be you.
Because you being you is what it is all about. You being you came here for a specific purpose. For some reason. You trying to be someone else isn’t helping anyone, much less yourself.
You be you. Because that’s the you the world needs.
That’s the you that you need.
