“I see YOU! I see all of YOU! The beautiful bits and also those parts that need a little tweaking too. A divinely beautiful mess, a work in progress, a journey still underway. Yep, I see you…All of that strength and those fears & insecurities too…they make you imperfect yet beautifully You! Yep, I love you. Real Love You, Tough Love You, Care Enough to Let You Just Be You, Love you in the Good & Love You in the Bad, Love You when you’re happy & even when You’re sad. Love you and accept you but love you enough to say that you deserve so much better so get out of your own way.” ~ Twin Spirit

What’s the use in being on “fleek” if your brain is on sleep and your soul is on weak. Yes physical beauty is a glorious thing..when we walk, feminine swag, full attention it gains. But remember beautiful sisters all of the power you possess..don’t be fooled by the lies you’re more than ass, hips, & breast.

Alchemist, Creator, Goddess, Queen. Your mighty spirit moves mountains, words from your lips like magic rains.

Daughter of creation, divine carrier of life, warrior, healer…claim your birth rights.

Random Musings: Radical Honesty

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

“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: The Walls We Build….

Standard

cycle of hurt

“It’s oftentimes not that we think you are him (or any other that has hurt us previously). It is the pain or disappointment you are delivering currently that causes us to pull away and begin construction on our walls. We are often saving ourselves from You not hiding from him.

Inconsistency, dishonesty (to yourself & us), lack of follow through, infidelity, unreliability, selfishness, being emotionally cold or unavailable, lack of care and appreciation, no communication, being irresponsible, shutting us down and out often, always placing us last on your list of priorities, refusal to spend time or invest in the relationship, mind games, constant insecurity & jealously, low or no ambition, lack of affection, sexual unfulfillment, disrespect, unkindness… these types of things presented to us over and over again during the course of our interaction with you, show us that we should not & cannot depend on you or trust you with our hearts.

Some women are wounded and won’t let you in or punish you because of mistakes of lovers past, but many more of us, even after being hurt badly before still decide to trust & open our hearts to love again…

You must understand the powerful importance of a woman truly letting you in. Her opening the door to the most vulnerable parts of herself emotionally, mentally, physically & spiritually. It is an act of trust, a surrendering. It is a gift and one you should not awaken, accept, or receive if you cannot, do not, or have not the desire or capacity to protect her heart, nurture her spirit, appreciate her essence , or reciprocate the love. It is selfish and abusive to do otherwise.” ~ shared from my heart with loving intentions, Twin Spirit 💕
