A Meditation for Finding your Truth
Last week, I wrote about how I am trying to keep my heart open after heartbreak. It's really f*cking hard, but I'm surprising myself... I'm doing well. A couple days go, I had a lovely experience which lifted up my vibes and led to a cool revelation.
I went to a Corinne Bailey Rae concert in Seattle on Tuesday night. I've been a fan of her music since I was a teenager, so seeing her live was a dream come true! I was in the front row, bobbing along to every song. I felt so alive. It was the happiest I've been since the break up.
On Thursday, I led a full moon guided meditation in a friend's Facebook group. I felt called to make the theme about my truth. While I led the meditation, I encouraged the participants to ask questions about their truth and to notice what comes up for them.
- What is my truth I need to speak?
- What is something I truly want to do?
- What am I truly meant to pursue?
- What is my truth?
For me the answers were truly amazing.
I realized that I wanted to truly live it up. I wanted to show up as me. I wanted to dance through life, the way I danced through the concert I went to. I realized that now was the time for me to do all the things I wanted to do, and say all the things I wanted to say. Because if not now, then when? There is no need to dim my light to avoid offending someone, I will shine as much as I want.
When I am in a relationship, I often try to fit my a lot of my life plans into the relationship. I try to set goals that are compatible with my partner's and I get excited about doing certain things with them like traveling or going to an event. I feel most comfortable about exploring life when I am with someone. It gives me confidence to go out and try new things when I have a partner to support me and confide in. However, I'm realizing that I should just do all the things I want to do alone.
