I’m just like you.
Truly - I am.
I feel everything - just like you do.
I feel exquisite and tender love til I think I might burst and I feel hurt - often - just like you do.
I feel strong, steadfast and courageous yet often a little overwhelmed and disconnected - like I know you do too.
I feel such immense joy and happiness exploding from my being and yet sometimes, the sadness and grief threaten to overwhelm me - just like it does for you.
I feel uncertain sometimes – about my life, my purpose, my passions, my role as a mama - just like you do.
I feel scared sometimes – about the future, the unknown, the intensity of my own bright light - and I know you do too.
I have a vision - a plan of sorts - yet I’m making it up as I go along.
The searing and sometimes almost unbearable pain I feel - it's the same as your pain.
The 'wake me up in the middle of the night' fear that I sometimes feel - it's the same as your fear.
The effortless, juicy and divine bliss that lights up my day and makes me feel alive - it's the same as your bliss.
We are the same - you and me.
In so many ways what we experience each moment of every day is very similar.
But - then again - it isn't.
For your past experiences are not the same as mine.
Your upbringing and conditioning is not the same as mine.
Your life view is not the same and the way you choose to show up in the world is not the way I do it.
All of these things combine and add up to make me a very unique manifestation of the divine.
Just as you are divinely unique too.
I'm not seperate from you.
Far from it actually.
We may look different on the outside, but our insides are all the same.
Our hearts pulse loudly, our blood pumps ardently - and if we're lucky, we get to feel a multitude of sensations with all 5 of our senses.
We may choose to shine our light out into this vast and beautiful world in our own individual way, but rest assured, when it comes right down to the nitty gritty, we aren't so very different.
Vulnerable - Strong - Powerful - Raw - Rebellious.
Passionate - Purpose-driven - Stuck - Unsure - Loving
Scared - Resistant - Compassionate - Longing - Tender
I feel it.
You feel it.
We all feel it!
So, darling one, where can you lean in a little where you might have been leaning away?
What is in the way of you feeling that deep and heartfelt connection with another?
What can you do today to feel that sense of oneness with everything?
Let this be an invitation to once and for all let go of the idea of separateness that society or our conditioning throw at us endlessly and, instead, remember to embrace our oneness, our connection, our loving,beating hearts that yearn for the same thing - to be loved and accepted just as we are.
I embrace you sister.
We are one.
Sweet soul do you feel this sense of 'oneness' in your life, or is there a strong theme of separateness going on?
I'd LOVE to hear from you so please share your thoughts in the comments below!
With all the love I have to give,
