This past year has been a particularly huge phase of inner growth for me. So much of my being has been transformed by love.
It tore down my walls. Softened me. Broke my heart open in the most magical of ways and simultaneously… shattered my ego into cute little bite-sized shards.
In any creative or growth process, you’ll reach a difficult and necessary stage of void when you realize your forcing-life-to-go-your-way bullshit isn’t working. And the only way through is to let go of your expectations—your desire for more money, security, recognition, etc.
It’s a phase of coming face to face with your inability to fully control outcomes.
I found myself in a state of emptiness, confusion, vulnerability, broken open by my failure to live up to my own expectations. I felt like I lost my power, my way. I didn’t know what to do with this space so I went inward. I disappeared.
In this state of void, I asked: “what is this ‘failure’ here to teach me?”
Reevaluate your perception of self.
Drop your ego.
Let go of all the bullshit you crave and cling to.
Focus on being of service.
It humbled me.
And ironically, brought me a feeling of peace and freedom, unlike ANYTHING I’d ever felt before because I finally felt free of the prison of my ego’s expectations and desires.
So if you’re going through a difficult time right now, ask yourself “What is it here to teach me?” Honor this as a sacred time for your growth. Use it as an opportunity for enlightenment. Sometimes attachments need to die to give birth to new magic—more joy, abundance, service, flow, ease, intuitive guidance. Whatever you’re calling in! 💫🙏🏼
Honestly, I’d love to know if this resonates with you or if you’ve had a similar experience this year! Drop a comment below. 💙🙏🏼
