This journey over the past three weeks (and the past month or so in general) has been… beyond anything I could have imagined. I am SO GLAD to have been blogging this entire process…
I now have a beautiful story of a man who woke up from a nightmare, faced his demons, found his true self, and then reached for the divine.
It is not the story I expected.
A month ago I was a shambles – an emotional bag of misery. Everything was falling apart. But then I took action!
I fully revealed myself to three key people in my life. I healed the emotional wound that had created my initial break. I had queried those around me for instruction and strength. I received guidance from a beautiful soul of a therapist. I focused on mindful awareness and moment by moment presence. I cut off access to all of my old hiding places. I removed all connections with people and ideas that could hinder or thwart my healing. I used radical self-honesty to query every aspect of who I am. I faced every emotion – every pain – every ounce of misery that flooded through me. I pushed and I pushed.
At some point I began to blossom into something far more spectacular than my original goal of a ‘more authentic self’.
If you watch the journey closely, it’s really interesting to see how each experience added something new – and they just kept building up, one on top of another.
Eventually the popcorn popper became a lightning storm.
Note: Bolded items were key moments for me.
