Live Your Truth! Flow & Feels, happy Friday~
"You want to save our planet? Live your god damn truth. Speak your truth, be your truth, live your truth—and go make some money off your truth while you’re at it. Don’t lie down and drink the Kool aide and think you’re doing anyone any favors. The greatest cause of dis-ease is emotions that manifest into physical pain in our bodies—you want to swallow your truth and work, live a job you hate—it will kill you and that ain’t doing you or your family any favors either. So how does it heal this world if I do what I love? Because when you do what you love, you shine. You become happy. You float like a fucking weightless chipmunk through your days because nothing is heavy anymore. People will walk up to you and when you tell them they will go, “Ahhhhh, that’s why. You’re happy because you do what you love.” Like its some secret that somebody needs to tell everybody else (even though you already know and he knows, and she knows and we all know). When we heal our suffering, we heal this world. When we do what we love, we heal this world." - Janne Robinson
I came across this a few weeks back, and at the time I first read this, it hit home - I cried, I dug deep, all the feels (I still do). Especially now during this transitional time, as my emotional happenings and blockages were manifested into somewhat of an aching body, feeling scared and scattered but stoked for my next steps, all the while trying to seek the teaching and acceptance with all that is.
This was such a refreshing reminder to follow the little whispers within, the one that I thought was slowly fading - the one that I was slowly becoming resistant of. An invigorating reminder to follow my truth, to stay genuine and authentic to myself no matter what the outside world - what my parents, society, my culture, or any critic said.
We are all on our individual, personal, imperfectly perfect paths. It is yours and only yours. So live up to yours, the way it will make you feel good! The way it will make you feel happy, beautiful, stoked, loved, and simply you.
As Funkadelic puts it, "listen to the inner voice, a higher wisdom is at work for you. Conquering the stumbling blocks come easier when the conqueror is in tune with the infinite".
Self-love is real love. Authenticity is key. Trust in yourself, trust in the flow, trust in all that is meant for you. As we always say here, life is happening for you, not to you. Let go of the old story of self-defeat, work and play and live and love to raise your vibration! Peel away the layers, move away from fear and fully allow yourself to step into love.
Sending love all ways, always.
One love and many blessings~ xx Nene
