“Be aware of your wound. Don’t help it to grow, let it be healed.” – OSHO, You Carry your Wound
Today, I want to challenge you to do something incredibly daring. That is, I want you to stop investing in your limiting beliefs, the stories you tell yourself, the skewed and limiting perspective through which you view your own place in the world.
Those are all features of your veil of survival. Today, I want you to trade those for your own brilliance. What is it about you that is aching to be brought into the world?
If you’ve ever experienced the type of loss that creates true destruction – whether that is the destruction of an identity, a lifestyle, or something else that you used to define yourself – then you surely know what it’s like to come out on the other side. It’s an opportunity that must never be squandered. When you’ve finished unlocking the chains of your past limits, it’s time to move forward – free from the imaginary shackles that once held you down.
Walk yourself into the light. Walk on the wild side. Dare to be yourself, and be unapologetic about it. Claim your holy, divine essence. Claim your beautiful, feminine authority in the world.
Write vows to your soul. What vow are you willing to keep to yourself as you move forward, bringing your brilliance into the world?
Are you willing to fiercely guard your value and revel in your essence?
It’s going to cost you your old story and everything you used to believe. You might even have to dip into despair, but the reward is that you are going to restore yourself to your rightful place.
It takes so much work to keep yourself at the front of your own consciousness, especially when society and outside forces are working so hard to drown you out. So, hold tight to your vows, and remember: not everything that appears broken truly is broken.
We are all wounded in our own way, and we have a choice to either find beauty in those cracks or let them become another part of the veil. So, make the choice to abandon the victim’s mentality, and instead, learn to see the beauty in your wounds.
There is a Japanese aesthetic philosophy, which is rooted in Zen Buddhism and known as Wabi-Sabi. It’s a philosophy that celebrates the beauty found in broken things, described as “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.” What a beautiful way to show reverence to the human experience and our constant evolution.
Kintsugi is another practice that celebrates scars, teaching us to celebrate our flaws, rather than hide them. This practice involves pouring gold, silver, or platinum into the cracks of broken things. It encourages us to acknowledge our wounds and allow them to create something even more beautiful than what was there before.
This is what is being taught at the Mystery School of the Fierce Feminine. We are learning how to cast out beliefs that do not serve us in our quest for rebirth. We are learning to honor our wounds and fill them with light. We are learning to revel in our essence.
