Skeletons in the Closet
Happy Halloween Everyone,
Can you believe it’s this time of the year again? I don’t know about you, but this past year has seemed to dissolve into nothingness at an intensely rapid pace. Now we head towards the holidays, and on to a new year.
The year 2019 will go down in my books as a year of quiet contemplation. Each time I tried to jump back into my usual rat race, I received a strong, shhhhh from the Universe. If I didn’t heed the quieting sound emanating from everywhere, I was energetically slapped down into submission. During these past quiet months, I have been able to tap into a deep reservoir of creativity. The manuscript to my book was finalized, pieces of art were created, quirky characters were summoned into existence to help heal some of my internal wounds, and my connectedness to my intuitive self has caught fire.
“The more I listen, the more profound the silence becomes.” – Wayne Dyer
Within the silence of this past year, I was able to reflect on the fantastic journey of my life. Almost like a life review. I am typically not a proponent of spending too much time looking in the rearview mirror because our human tendency is to get stuck in should of, would of, could of. But this has not been my recent experience. My higher self was able to show me my miraculous transformation of self and to remind me that even when I was vibrating on a much lower frequency of hate, self-doubt, and blame, I was still the sweet wide-eyed little girl full of possibilities.
I had a dream this past week, where my extended family members and I were in a dark place. We were at a beach of some sort, but it was dark and gloomy. We were rummaging through skeletons of all types and from every species, showing each other what we had found. Some of us were encapsulated in larger skeletons and were able to break free. It all was indeed a bazaar scene. Once we had finished on the beach, we started swimming out into dark, dark nothingness. The others were swimming underwater and coming up for gasps of air. I was swimming with my head above the water, watching the others, and wondering why they were making this whole thing so hard.
My gut says that this dream is about this past year of reflection and my ability to go to hidden internal places where others struggle to embrace. Skeletons can not hurt you; they are just the relics of days gone by and the personas we use to be. Look gently upon your skeletons, rummage through them to gain knowledge, but when you are finished, leave them on the shoreline and swim to deeper waters.
Seeing my former self, the little girl, teenager, and young woman from eyes of compassion and unconditional love have helped to release the skeletons from the closet. The icky murky energy of guilt and shame can not live in a place of unconditional love. It is impossible! So in the beautiful, energetic embrace of the unconditional love of self and forgiveness, I can state the following with gentle ease and grace.
I have begged, borrowed, and stole from myself and others.
I have bent the truth lied to, and manipulated myself and others.
I have physically, mentally, and emotionally hurt myself and others.
I have harshly been the judge, jury, and lynch man to myself and others.
I participated in the grave illusion of this earth plane and have no one to blame but me, myself, and I. The good news is, today, I understand that we have a choice in how we see and participate in this plane. I can choose to climb in the closet and hide with my skeletons, or I can open the door, clear everything out, let the fresh air in, maybe even add a few sprits of air freshener to the closet space and move on to the next project.
Got any closets that need to be cleaned out? Be brave and know that there is nothing inside there that you and your higher self can not handle when doused in unconditional love. Next move, we are going to clean out that dusty ‘ol attic and crawl space full of the cobwebs of days gone by.
As always, I am loving you.
