I wasn’t taught to blend in with the crowd, never taught to be ashamed of who I am and never taught to hide my uniqueness in any way. We aren’t born to fit in some general mold of a person, we were all born with a unique light inside of ourselves and we are given life to allow it to shine as brightly as it can. Be YOU. No matter what anyone else says or does… Be YOU!
Those who fake who they are, cut off their own power to greatness. They are always having to think about who they are each day. They lack the ability to connect naturally to the people and world around them because of the mask that they wear.
Don’t worry about trying to “be” something … instead be YOU. You choose this life for a reason.. there must have been something in it that called to you. Something that made you say ” THAT’S WHO I WANT TO BE!” If you spend all your time trying to be something … you’ll miss out on being who you were born to be.
Its a wonderful feeling to be free to be you. There was a time when I felt like I couldn’t be myself. I felt like I had to hide certain aspects of who I am to fit in or not to stand out too much. I’ve never been one that cared about what others thought of me… but I also never want people to think badly of me. I would hide aspects of myself around those who I thought would fear or not understand who I am.
I’m not sure when that all stopped .. I think it has been a gradual thing than something I just suddenly stopped doing. Through the years I have found that by being myself openly and honestly to everyone.. there was far less to fear by me and by others. It’s not that I am some sort of monster .. there are just parts of my way of doing things that differ from others. I see the world as a magical place filled with possibilities of even more magical moments and opportunities. I once worried about being called names like the ever so common “witch”…. but somewhere down the line I realized that those that don’t understand will always throw stones and call you names. So if someone was freaked out by my collection of crystals or my magical way of talking and seeing the world… and if they were to call me that name.. I would say thanks and then explain to them that a witch is a healer and a magical person and nothing at all that I would be ashamed of if someone wished to call me by that name.
Do I consider myself to be a witch? No, not really.. who needs labels.. I am just me. I have my way of seeing and doing .. my own way of being and I am me always. The label I give myself is Holly or Raventalker … that’s who I am … no need to add extra names to it. I am simply me. Every day .. all the time .. I am me. It feels so good to fly as you are without worry or fear of what others don’t understand.
Shuffling my cards this morning to see what message Spirit brings and straight away the medicine man card flew right out of my hands. A sure sign that we need to pay extra attention to the message this card brings us.
Ahhhhhhhhh yes… this message is very clear. You are already what you seek. Step away from “Wanting to Become” and dance in the reality of “What Is”.
This is something we all struggle at different points in our lives. We over think situations, over think our own thinking, over think our own knowing and our instincts… we over think everything . If we can find that place in ourselves where we can just allow things to be as they are and trust what we already know, feel and believe .. that’s where the magic happens.
We are already who we are suppose to be and we already have the gifts we wish to have… we just have to stop fighting with ourselves to allow ourselves to be just that and to use and trust those gifts that are already inside us.
So the message today is: There is a Medicine man in every one of us.. we just have to trust that knowledge and allow it to be so.
No matter what …. no matter where you are .. or who you are with … BE YOU.
Why change according to where you are or who you are with?
Is there any satisfaction or happiness … If you cannot be YOU ..
It is one thing not to show all your cards to those who would not appreciate your hand .. but you can still be yourself …
Find that happy medium wher you can be yourself without telling all your secrets .. all your life stories ..
