Push it down, put it away; it’s all going to go away someday. Sugar coat it so I don’t feel it, why does it matter anyway?
Layers upon layers, I’m starting to unravel this mystery inside that has just begun the travel. That is the travel from my mind, to my heart, to my intuition and then to the rhythm of my soul.
The door is shut, my space is empty. The lights go off and I finally feel at home. Feelings come one by one, floating to the surface like little bubbles gasping for air. Their voices become a scream and a blare, after too much time being unheard, they all need to speak now.
I know they need the air and I run to the walls for support, the feelings are here to help me with their story – I hold onto this thought. Although, thoughts have started to disappear, it’s my gut that’s gotten real loud.
With each feeling, there is a similar connection – embrace. Embrace the change, embrace the ups and downs, embrace my intuition’s voice (feelings/emotion) and embrace life’s light and darkness. Only then can I transform, because vision is one thing, inner-standing is another.
My little mind tries to grab control, as if diving into my feelings isn’t productive. My higher self kicks in and this electricity runs through my body – there is nothing more productive than a conversation with emotion.
As my feelings take the front seat again, I am reminded that there is a difference between acceptance and embracing. Embracing is hugging and appreciating each obstacle, feeling or rocky moment in the most genuine way. Acceptance choosing something as my reality and just living with it. The main difference is simply this – embracing, I create my reality, acceptance, I let my reality happen.
Feelings, I thank you and I hear you. When you come, I am embracing you and listening to you all the way. I am grateful for your kind reminder of my true power, I feel my fire burning. I know you’re always there, and your purpose brings me comfort.
I choose to embrace, because only then can I see my journey’s grace, let go of fear’s chase and remember destiny is mine to ace.
When I sat down to write, I heard a lyric in a song about sugar-coating. And I intended to write something along the lines of that, but this turned out to be something completely different. That’s the beauty of writing, it’s not just your fingers on the keys, it’s your soul’s voice that echoes on the tips of your hands. Be fearless and free -Ace
