Good morning my loves,
This morning I felt to share with you something that has been deeply impactful in my life, and I’m sure it will impact yours too.
So often as women we feel the need for balance. In fact nearly every woman that talks to me, comes for a healing session etc says the same thing… She wants more balance in her life. She’s trying to balance her masculine and feminine. She feels out of balance.
I remember when the concept of balance became a buzz word…
Good parents raise balanced children.
A healthy relationship is balanced.
And let’s not forget a balanced diet.
Now instead of going towards engagement with our lives and experiences… We have become devoted measurement takers. Always checking and reaching for balance. We look at our calendars to tell us if we’re in balance or not.
Here’s the Truth.
Balance, as the term is applied in today’s world, is a myth, and if you are called towards greatness in any capacity… It may even harm you.
The term balance comes from Libra, the zodiac sign representing the scales. Originally that’s precisely what balance was… Equally weighted.
The problem is that while this is a wonderful tool for measuring… It’s not a wonderful way to live.
The desire for balance will often have us maintaining relationships, perspectives, and actions that do not serve as a benefit to us out of a misguided sense of a need to give equal weight to all things.
Trying to maintain a masculine side… For balance.
Keeping that hostile friendship… For balance.
Keeping up with negative news… For balance.
Trying not to spend all your time doing what your love… For balance.
Darling… It’s time to get off the fence.
You see, the only time we really need to try to seek balance is when we’re straddling the fence.
When we’re not committed to one path or another.
Balance has become a Pseudonym for our trying not to be “too much” trying not to go too far. Balance is us riding the breaks and calling that living.
Balance is a beautiful word for living a mundane life.
The secret my love? If you’ve got big dreams, and want big love, … It’s a requirement that you get comfortable with NOT being balanced…
Instead be devoted.
Find the space of your desire… And go full tilt.
Yes you may fall…. But what a story.
Find your Feminine and be all in… You’ll never truly see how it can serve you while rationing it.
Decide who you are and be fully that… And as you evolve… Change it. But always and without apology… Be all in.
Get out of balance and into surrendering to your greatness.
