I've been there.....
As an ambitious young woman I always wanted to do it ALL. Have it all. Be it all. Do it all.
Doctor, researcher, integrative medicine pioneer, my own women's practice, yoga practitioner AND teacher, entrepreneur, spiritual intuitive healer, health freak, sexy lover, amazing friend, great cook, social enthusiast, creative writer... you name it.
It's honestly exhausting to even write it down ;) But yes, I knew I could and I can, make the world a better place. But often the power source that I used to tap into to achieve all this, did not come from love. It came from fear.
It came from the fear of not being good enough, smart enough, and on the other hand of being too much, basically the fear of 'just' being myself.
And a part of me would talk me down. Sabotage me and be a downright bitch. So I would overeat when I was stressed, drink, numb my feelings or just be too exhausted to get anything done at all.
Until I realised a couple years ago that I had to befriend that part of me. All of me. That I was loved, deeply loved. By Source, my guides and by myself most of all.
I even found that my inner critic or 'darkness' possesses great qualities that I actually need in life!
And over the years I've seen many of my clients wanting to practise more self love, yet they don't always know how.
So over the years I developed a method, that I come back to time after time and advise to many. And I can honestly say I am my own best friend to this day.
We may be afraid of darkness, but it is the portal to the light. Personally, globally, universally.
Because in this journey of life, we practice what it's like in the 3D, and remember what we really are. And that is unconditional love.
