Like for many of us right now, this year for me has been a pretty wild ride so far. Belinda Davidson is calling the times we are facing now 'the era of the shadow' and that has definitely been my experience as of late last year.
There has been so much polarity for me in my life and I certainly see that as a collective theme playing out in the world as well. I've experienced some of the darkest periods of shadow, of heart wrenching, soul shaking loss and pain, as well as some of the most light-filled periods of joy, connection, bliss and true magic.
I'm here to assure you that if you've been facing your fears, experiencing turbulence in your inner and outer worlds, going through intense periods of upheaval or change, or had your mental and emotional states swinging wildly - you are not alone.
What I have so humbly and gratefully realised through my recent experiences, is that support is EVERYTHING.
There was a time when I had so much difficulty reaching out for support, accepting support that was offered, and even letting someone in who I had gone to for help (professionals included!). It was such a challenge for me to feel safe and held by another, through my darkness and my light.
This is something that has been dissolving for me, piece by piece, as I do the inner work and surround myself with an amazing team of earth angels who I love and trust.
Recently I realised how much the experience of safety is of paramount importance in being able to access support (much more on this in another post), and that I am nothing without the support of those who truly see, hear, love, and support me in all that I am.
In being able to accept the loving assistance of others, I surrendered into an experience of unity. I realised that I am not a separate fragment, alone in the world, misunderstood, not seen or appreciated for who I really am.
I am whole, but the support and love I receive from others is what has the power to help me rise into greatness. What builds me up, nourishes and feeds my soul. Letting others contribute to me has created a huge paradigm shift in my world.
I can never express the depth of my gratitude for those who have been there for me and supported me through these times, and who continue to hold space for me to step more and more into my soul's gifts.
The power of support at this level is truly amazing. It is an honour to receive this, and I humbly endeavour to offer this gift to others.
If you are in need of support in your life right now, please reach out if you feel drawn. I would be honoured to serve you in whatever way I can. To assist you in aligning more closely with your self and your soul, and in building a deep sense of inner strength and resilience to move through the challenges of life.
