Duties and Responsibilities

This was my invitation to release expectations today, from an app I have on my phone called 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘗𝘢𝘵𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘯.

It’s timely because I’ve been going through some personal shit, and fighting has been happening with my partner.

This morning was a little rough, and I was practicing observance of where I was, mentally and emotionally, then I opened the app and saw this.

This morning I dove into another process of asking and exploring, and I came to a deeper understanding of I only have duties and responsibilities to myself. Let me share …

I revisited when I was at my lowest and how I practiced finding moments in my days that made me smile. That risk that I took, to force myself to smile was hard. It was uncomfortable, and I fought it. I didn’t want the task of doing for myself. I did for myself and I got burned. Deep inside I didn’t want to smile. I wasn’t sure if I could handle it because I was so used to feeling terrible and worn at that point that the idea of anything differnt in my body seemed impossible and completely out of reach. It would hurt.

It takes the same energy to lift up as it does to put down.

Even though this message was my guidance for today, I invite you to explore along with me. When we pass on, transfer, project, or hand down our duties and responsibilities to others, we’re passing, projecting, etc. – we are in ways excusing and removing ourselves from doing the healing work that’s meant to be done by us, for personal growth and development. We’re getting something out of this transference behavior. We’re creating, and holding onto an 𝘰𝘶𝘵. Mind, Body, and Spirit.

Telling others how they need to be and what they should be doing (for us) distracts and pulls us away from what we need to actually be doing. We’re passing the responsibility buck, and not being accountable. And in this, we suffer and struggle.

It’s a toxic experience for the other person to go through, and it’s toxic to place such a burden on ourselves – constantly needing to juggle and navigate what everyone else is doing to you, leaving ourselves depleted and spent feeling. Exasperation comes to mind.

A few years ago, when I felt broken and bottomed out, I realized I needed to try something (else). I was stagnant. What I was doing – nothing – wasn’t working. All I was doing was making everything everyone else’s responsibility for what I felt and what was happening to me. Those mindsets and behaviors kept me stuck. Nothing was ever going to change, and I was going to be there forever. I knew I needed to push myself. I needed to feel something different. In the beginning, the push felt more like a shove, and I didn’t like it at all. I had to risk change. It was a leap I wanted to take. My pain had become too painful. I held my breath and I jumped.

I had to jump daily in the beginning. In time though, as my body began learning, and started feeling safe in enjoying the new sensations it was experiencing, my mood and my mindsets shifted. I kept going until I learned how it felt to hold myself.

Now I take comfort in creating for myself and I do my best to let go of all else. Because that doesn’t belong to me. It’s not my duty or responsibility to manage what’s not mine.

What do you take on that isn’t yours? Are you ready to give it back?, and place the duty of responsibilty back on them? And ask yourself: Am I capable of supporting them while they learn and explore? It’s the matter of give and receive. It’s relationship.

And what do you force on others, or expect of others, when in reality they’ll never be able to give it to you, or live up to your ideals? Because it’s yours, not theirs. Only you can fully provide for yourself.

Finally, where are you unsatisfied? Where do your disappointments and frustrations come from? These are the pain points from which you begin. Open your eyes, take a deep breath in, feel into where you want to be – and GO!

What can you do today, even if it’s one small act, like finding a smile, that brings you closer to what you really want instead, and ultimately points you in the direction toward your genuine authenticity, and helps you find clarity in reason so you can begin to accept your duties and responsibilities? And actually do it?

It takes practice. One small gesture or risk at a time. Movement is the single thing that creates shift. Try trying a new tool for self care, or create a new habit. In time you will be able to measure your actual progress and you will be closer to feeling and having what you really want. It will be uncomfortable at first, but in time your heart and your feelings will show you otherwise. And as you step into your new personal spaces, you will also be shedding pieces of those fears around abandonment, not being enough, and being alone; and you’ll be letting go of your anger, a little bit at a time.

ROOTS OF ABUNDANCE

7 Energies oracle deck

“As I grow and the land and the faeries and the elementals and animals and wayshowers around me interact and exchange energy with me my roots develop even deeper and gain wisdom.

I’ve been through many seasons, have weathered, and survived. I am a warrior, a pillar of strength and resillience.

Once again I let go of attachments and reinvent myself.”

I’ve had a rough few days. And to be honest, a rough couple of months. I have been in a personal growth cycle – well three actually. One for maturity, one for relationship, and one for healing. They overlapped and created this intense dynamic for me.

I finally cracked. Oh yea I feel good. And ready. Thank You

Stepping Into Truth is where you will come to find, and be on purpose.

The work you do for your self brings you closer to a happier, more joy filled life. Through healing work and navigation, the dynamics of all of your relationships will create alignment, especially of your self-relationship; and are integral steps for your personal health and wellness.

Who you are now is a series of symptoms, conditions, patterns, cycles, and behaviors that have root causes in other lifetimes, timelines, and dimensions. The key to the management and prevention of illness and disease (emotional and physical) are found in soul lessons, belief systems, ancestral hand downs, past lives, trauma imprinting, and the work around triggers and hooks, to bring about new perspective and energy.

Ken and I created the group, found on Facebook and MeetUp. Our intention for the group is to be the place for genuine, safe conversations around Inuition, spirituality, healing, energy, working with your “claires”, and so on. I hope you find and join us.

How shapeshifting equals love

Until about 3-4ish years ago I was thin. The kind of thin everyone envied and commented on. I was fit, I worked to keep my muscles lean and defined. I had small breasts so there wasn’t a real need for a bra. I was always comfortable in my body, and my clothes. I was a dancer growing up so I spent a lot of time in a dressing room, and it’s how I learned to be body conscious. My body was my temple. And I guess good genes afforded me the freedom to not have to worry. I didn’t have to work hard at being thin, I didn’t have to work at it at all, actually.

“Just wait and see, one day it will all catch up to you” everyone said. But I wasn’t worried. All I needed was a quick glance at the mirror and I knew I was good.

Now, I look down, and I observe closely – I have no choice but to see the thickness that I have become. My always a size 4-6 is now a size 14, at least. I am no longer flat, but round. I fill my clothes, especially my pants, and everything fits uncomfortably tight. I need a bra. I can hold my breasts and make them jiggle. The ONLY way I feel comfortable is in sweats and a baggy, loose top.

I met Ken while my body was shapeshifting; Urgh why couldn’t he have met me when I was hot, and when I felt sexy? Last year we drove across the country and that seemed to give my fat the green light to do as it pleased. When I stand in front of the mirror now and look at myself I turn side to side, and I look at everything. Even if I suck in, the girth of my waist is bigger than I ever imagined I would ever possibly be. I count the rolls in my sides. I feel my fullness in the tub. I lay down naked and I think about what he sees.

He never met the skinny me, so he accepts my body unconditionally. I want to see my body as he sees it. I try to soften in my judgements as I touch and study the new me. I remind myself what I went through, and that subconsciously I was trying to be invisible. I didn’t like my world then.

As I expand and grow, my body is too. There’s more for me to love. There’s more of me to want, and hold on to. All I have to do is agree. I’m learning to love me.

What’s Next?

I haven’t published anything big in a while. Recently I’ve been asking myself why.

I get it. This past year I have dealt with many adjustments. I met someone, and we embarked on a trip of a lifetime. Wound up completely upending and changing my life.

As I’m settling in my new home and space, I’m very anxious to get back to writing and publishing, and I’ve been struggling with it.

It just so happened that last week my writing coach from back home set up an online gig. She hasn’t offered anything by way of her coaching this past year because she’s had a lot of big and important changes happen in her life too. She lifted her students up to a new level, and now she’s ready to share the next steps. She’s getting back to us.

As per her usual, she guided us through a few writing exercises, and by the end of the hour it dawned on me why I haven’t been into my own writing. I’m changed!

Before, I was writing about my life changing experience, and how I was working so hard to heal. I wrote about healing wounds to feel the joy in life because that’s what I needed.

There’s something to be said for writing from the place of pain, about tapping into your emotional bucket and giving it a voice. I wrote from that bucket a lot, and I was able to release a lot of energy around it all through my writing.

For so long I lived in my heaviness.

The drive across the country, the break, was exactly what I needed to shift my energy. But it wasn’t until last week in that meeting that I realized my shift is complete. I no longer have to write about my tragedy. I am no longer a victim. I am a changed person.

I’m trying to get back into writing. I’m knocking out posts that are just bursts, bursts of information I want to share, and to be present. A few times I’ve jumped on Facebook and said “I’m ready.” “I’m going to write. Stay tuned.” “I’m coming.” Bless your hearts you’re tuning in. But I still havent been producing much, or anything that I feel is great or has transformational value.

What’s my next step?

I do know that I know how to tap into, draw in, and write a good story from my feelings. Now I get to do it from my new perspective. The life Ken & I are creating is so full of love and happiness, comfort, and peace. As I build my love, and create great moments, I will again write and share from my feelings.

Thank You for hanging in with me. I appreciate you.
