‘My new promise – permission to nurture and honour myself’
Women have an innate power to create life – a child or new business or lifestyle – and that power is held within the womb.
This is one of the many wonderful things I learnt this month whilst attending a retreat. Celebrating creative feminine power and all it can achieve.
The retreat increased my awareness about many things and helped me understand myself more deeply. Since then I have enjoyed being my authentic self more often.
I discovered that the most amazing gift I can give myself is to find what I am seeking within. I always look forward to that special time when I can get away from my everyday environment and enjoy some quiet time to just BE, nourishing, reflecting and recharging my batteries.
It occurred to me that I had built a few walls around my heart. These had grown every time I felt hurt and rejection. I felt I was ready to dissolve them, but wasn’t sure how to achieve that. When I awoke on the Sunday morning, I was overwhelmed with such an incredible sadness that I began to cry as the realisation struck me. Unconsciously I had spent much of my life trying to find love, appreciation and approval from others – always looking outside of myself. It is exhausting. The striving, the doing, trying to please others and avoiding conflict.
I was sad that I had not honoured and treasured all of myself (the dark and light). I found it difficult to speak my truth.
I had been looking in all the wrong places. I discovered that it can only come from within.
As soon as I realised that I felt the weight lift. I was filled with a sense of clarity and freedom. A greater love for myself and others that I never thought possible.
I realised that all of the situations, people and experiences that I have experienced thus far had been a blessing and a gift that had lead me to being at peace within myself. My new promise is to love, appreciate, nurture and accept myself exactly as I am. Since then I have been speaking my truth more, going with the flow and having fun enjoying what feels good.
