Random Musings: LOVE-A New Paradigm

Standard

spell-feather-love

“I am not afraid of relationships or commitment. Far from it. I am made for partnership and shine within a healthy loving connection. I honestly desire and prefer deep, intimate, long-term connections over short lived surface-level encounters. I simply choose not to have to exchange ownership of my heart, mind, body, freedom, dreams, & soul for outdated concepts of relating or what a relationship should look like.

We are still burdened with antiquated ideas about what men and women are supposed to look for and expect in a partner/spouse or relationship. These traditional and deeply embedded ideas are on a collision course with the facts on the ground and many of them are diminishing to our spirit. It’s time to open up and explore new relationship paradigms.

The new paradigm relationship is heart to heart and even higher level connections. The joy of this type of relating must be experienced to be fully understood.

In the new paradigm of YOU being, the ONE rather than some being outside of yourself, the power and truth of who you are is activated and a new understanding of your own freedom and power is now alive in every cell of your body to the core matrix of your soul – to be who you are. You no longer project the responsibility for your happiness, well-being, and expectation out onto your partner for you know that all of these states are an inside job.

This frees up the nature of relationships to expand and transform…to become more of a place that inspires and encourages our growth, movement, a place where all things are possible, a place where we support one another in becoming the “BEST VERISONS” of ourselves (whatever that might look like) rather than a prison of fear, where we cling to old beliefs of ownership, jealousy, co-dependency, punishment, emotional manipulation, & control and where we hold one another back out of fear that we might lose what we have. Where we see our partners as beings we own and who owe us total subjugation to prove they love us. Where we make someone else the sole source of our happiness and contentment. A realm filled with limiting experiences rather than being a place that gives those we love wings and our love encourages them to Soar & Fly and Be all that they dream and desire to BE!!

Call me a naive dreamer or an obstinate nonconformist if you like but my spirit knows that the idea we have of LOVE expands much deeper than we can even imagine and I choose to allow myself the opportunity to experience ALL that Life, Love, Connection, & the Human Experience has to offer…and I am not willing to sacrifice that potential by Living Small, Dimming my Light, Not using my Divine Gifts, Not Pursuing My Dreams, Not Speaking My Truth, Hiding my Desires, & Being Afraid to GO FOR IT when Connection Presents Itself, Pretending my needs don’t matter, or settling for a mediocre Relationship with someone who is afraid to FLY simply to maintain the status Quo.

Call me Selfish, call me Crazy, Call me anything you like but this is “My Life” and I choose to Live it Deeply, Fully, Creatively, Expansively, & Beautifully. I will not settle for relationships that do not move me, grow me, and stir my soul. Loving You should NEVER require sacrificing the Heart &Soul of ME. It should be a mutually value adding experience to every Spirit involved.

Yes…I Love you enough to Set you Free to Find the Love That Your Spirit Needs and I Love Myself enough to know that it’s okay if I simply decide to just Choose Me ~ Written & Shared From a place of Transparency, Honesty, & LOVE” ~ Twin Spirit

Random Musings: Moment of Gratitude

Standard

gratitude-definition

All in all I have a pretty great life. My circle is small but the care, love, support, & friendship runs deep. I get to spend lots of my time doing things I genuinely enjoy with people I genuinely enjoy. My family is good and most days my heart is full. Are there challenges? Of course, but even those create the opportunity for me to dig deeper, to push forward, and discover my strength. It’s easy to get so caught up in the illusion of “the struggle” that we forget just how good our lives truly are. While they may not be filled with every little thing we want if we take an honest inventory I bet we will find that they are filled with every thing that we truly need. This moment of #Gratitude brought to you by the letter T (thankful). ~ always Twin Spirit www.iAmTwinSpirit.com

Random Musings: Mystery of Change

I can be a passionately intense person. I am fully aware of this…lol 🙂 (It can be scary for the faint of heart, those who are not use to or comfortable with radical honesty/openness, or those who have only known and experienced lukewarm half-hearted connections).

When I like you..I tell you. If you inspire me..I let you know. If I see greatness in you..I fully support your dreams. If I value you..I protect our connection. If you move me…I invite you into my life. If I appreciate you..I say Thank You. If I love you…I’ve got you always in all things. If you hurt me (repeatedly)…I walk away. If I trust you…I share my heart. If our paths seem meant to cross…I explore the possibilities. If you are not good for me…I let you go.

I choose to have the best life I can and this often means stepping outside of my comfort zone, being vulnerable, being open, seizing the moment, not resisting & allowing the magic to flow, doing the work, not allowing fear to be my guide, asking for what I want, being honest even when it makes me uncomfortable and I’m afraid of the outcome that may follow, knowing when to move forward, & even knowing when to let go.

Until you want change MORE than you want things to stay the same…they shall remain. YOU are the master designer of your own life. I choose to design mine Amazingly Beautiful & Epically Fulfilling #SeizeTheDayGodsAndGoddesses ~ Always Twin Spirit

Random Musings: Mediocrity is a Prison

Standard

14291798_10153735230711846_1157060258181794998_n

“Mediocrity is a prison that entraps people and steals dreams. It’s the one prison where breaking out is the right thing to do. Wanting a thing is not enough, you must know that it is possible and believe that you can in fact achieve it. We settle for many things in life not because its what we truly desire but because we are afraid to want more, believe it’s the best we will ever have, and/or we simply won’t do the work required to have a better experience.” ~ Twin Spirit #BeInspired To LIVE Your Best Life

Random Musings: Radical Honesty

Standard

radical honesty 2

 

Are You COURAGEOUS Enough To Be Honest?

To be honest with yourself and others can be a difficult thing, because, in order to be honest, you must be courageous enough to take a look deep into your psyche and confront your weaknesses, fears, & insecurities—and expose them openly to the world—which is what we are most afraid of.

The majority of us have contrived a false image of ourselves. This image, however, is just a veil to cover our shadow self, not only from the eyes of others, but from our own as well. Thus the way we have been living so far is just an escape from self-understanding and genuine communication.

Unless we face, understand, and accept ourselves—unless we get in tune with the core of our feelings, emotions, thoughts, and intentions—how can we find harmony within ourselves and the world?

To look for truth, and to be honest, is terrifying. Forget big universal truths; I’m talking about little truths, personal truths. We are afraid to look inward, and to be honest with ourselves. And even if we are courageous enough to do that, then we are so concerned with the feelings of others, that we are afraid to share our truths with them. We punish ourselves with all sorts of guilt for even imagining causing someone emotional pain, when we really have no idea how they will feel if we were actually honest. We jump through crazy ridiculous hoops, all because we want to avoid the turmoil of potential emotional pain (theirs and ours). Being honest and being kind are not mutually exclusive. You can and should deliver your truth without blame or judgment, but definitely with kindness.

Sometimes we find ourselves in relationship dynamics with people who we perceive as emotionally fragile or explosive (it’s really the same thing). So we subjugate ourselves, and learn to maneuver around them. We do everything we can just to avoid those emotional mines. We never know when we’ll step on some trigger, so we hide the parts of ourselves we assume they will not accept or understand. We tread lightly. We speak less honestly. We express ourselves less openly. But unwittingly and inevitably repeating this process over and over, day in and day out, can cause resentments to grow. The less we share…the less of a connection is made. 

Instead, I propose that we try honesty. (It’s really scary, I KNOW, but it’s so very worth it). Let’s respect one another. Let’s trust each other to handle the truth. Let’s be really clear within ourselves, and with all the other people in our lives. Let’s unchain ourselves from guilt and obligation. Let’s give ourselves permission to be open, honest, & free. Let’s forget about seeking approval, and instead live in our own integrity. It is near to impossible to get to the places you desire and to receive the things you want in life when you are not open and honest about what you truly need.

In order to really give love, in a way that is unconditional you have to love yourself first. To love yourself simply means to honor your own needs.

Really living your truth is about getting still enough, and being courageous enough, to admit to yourself what you want, and what you don’t want. It’s tuning in to the pit-of-your-stomach feelings, and figuring stuff out from there. It is about standing in your integrity, and following your internal guidance, even when it goes against social norms, the mores of your specific community, or the good intentioned opinions of those we care for.

It takes courage, real courage, to live/speak your truth. Courage isn’t about jumping out of airplanes or diving with sharks. It’s not about physical activities that get the adrenaline pumping. Real courage happens in very quiet and subtle moments. In those intimate, vulnerable exchanges when you’re afraid to speak the truth. When you’re afraid to honor your own feelings, when you’re afraid that if you say or do what your heart is asking of you, that you will be dismissed, shamed, ridiculed, or rejected. Or that the truth of your feelings will hurt the feelings of another.

The most amazing thing about radical honesty is that YES it’s not always easy and Yes your life will change but you aren’t going to be alone and rejected in the ways you may worry about. You will instead filter out the people who love and accept the real you, from those that only conditionally accept you (if you fit in to the image of who they want you to be). If you are brave enough to be the real you, you will find lots of love, support, friendship, opportunity, and companionship from other souls who are just like you.

I hope you find the courage to try it. Being the real you (whatever that means), out in the open, it is truly gifts you with a rewarding and delicious life experience!

From my heart to yours,
Love Always…

Random Musings: Amore…Poly

Standard

4066b04192b9379bb2a77224856ea8da

“To be wrapped in the warm secure cocoon of your never letting go. Knowing that no matter where I may roam your heart keeps me tethered to the place called home. Giving the soul enough space to blossom, manifest, & unfold. This is the power our trust truly holds.

You understand my need to simply be free, not insecure or frightened by me just being me….Your ability to love me just as I AM is the strong foundation on which our love stands.

Forsaking all others you never require of me as our love is built on radical honesty. We understand that love is infinite possibility…we allow it to bloom where ever our hearts plant a seed, be it as a unit or individually.

Freedom…that’s the magic you see. Allowing one another to fully BE. There is only 1 you & only 1 me and we get to design what works for “We”. Sharing our lives is a choice that we make and I choose you again & again everyday.

To see your heart open and a beautiful smile on your face means such a great deal to me. It matters not if the source of that joy is your love for “Us” or your love for “She”. If she matters to you then she matters to me. I suppose in a world that requires a label that makes our style of Amore…Poly.

The beautiful thing at the end of the day is there is nothing else I’d rather it BE.” ღ ~ Love Free by Twin Spirit ღ

Random Musings: LOVE is FREEDOM

Standard

quote-love-is-authentic-only-when-it-gives-freedom-love-is-true-only-when-it-respects-the-rajneesh-59-29-28

A Moment of Transparency: While I am a very open person I do not feel compelled to share all of me with everyone. Yes, I just want to be “Naked” but only before those that can appreciate the gift, power, & level of responsibility that relating in that state brings.

I have no desire to be liked or understood by everyone. No compulsion to fit in or be accepted by the masses. I genuinely like who I am as a person and I am okay with the areas in which I am still growing and learning.

Deeper connections for me honestly don’t happen very often but when they do it happens organically. Sometimes an interaction with another person strikes a chord in me and I feel inspired to explore the essence of who they are more deeply or it feels as if I have known them since forever, it feels like going home.

For Me caring & loving doesn’t mean owning. It does not give me exclusive rights to your heart, mind, body, or soul. It however does allow me the opportunity to share those beautiful parts of you in whatever way you wish to share them with me. It allows me to view the world through your eyes, to feel, to see, to hear things in a way that only you can and to savor that expression.

I do not want to hoard you or hide you away from the world. I want my presence to be Freeing and for it to wrap you in a blanket of comfort so warm and secure that it encourages and inspires you to LIVE and be the most Authentic Version of yourself that you can.

I want you to experience all the things that your spirit desires on this journey unencumbered by the limiting and sometimes suffocating effects of controlling insecurity that many have labeled as LOVE.” ~ from the heart of Twin Spirit
