We all have this warrior energy within, the fire that burns in the belly. Sometimes that fire gets out of control, out of balance. It is important to have fire, but when we have too much it can burn us out and take us down. We know when we are out of balance and need to go in for the correction, life feels like burn-out things are just out of sorts, and we are exhausted, feeling hopeless, negative and just no energy.
Where is it that you have not taken ownership of your life? Where have you burned yourself out? In what ways can you bring love to yourself that you have cast aside or let it burned out? How can you free yourself from the restraints that are not in alignment with the more loving visions you wish for your life?
The way out is the way in; Practice meditation on these words; I am grace, I am love, I am peace, I am harmony, I am healthy, I am compassion, and I am kindness.
Practice this for yourself and your fellow warriors. These words can create stability, uncover our truths and allows us to feel what it is to be self-loving towards ourselves as well as other people, our tribes, families and extended people. This is the way to find our greater sense of security within because we all know that security is false, there is no real security because life is unpredictable like a fire. We can plan, do things to gives us a sense of this safety net, but in truth, it is compassion, grace, peace, and self-love that will provide us with what we need always.
We need to ask questions of ourselves, we have to get truthful and cast out the shame that binds us to false stories we tell ourselves or others might spit at us. The only thing tangible is the space within, our thoughts about ourselves and situations. We have all the power within. This loving-kindness we can give ourselves is the way to find the energy within to find that stability that comes from knowing that we are ok. Self-love is the only security we have. So much love…Dolby Dharma
Advancing forward in my strength Honoring myself...believing in myself Choosing how to frame history- No longer the victim…fatally injured A humble yet proud warrior glimmering with color My agonies transform to liberty My pain shifts to opportunity My core is engaged Blazing rays of light from within A transforming fire Reducing my weak and frail pieces to ashes Undeniably acknowledging the stagnant times True moments of heaviness Yet learning to jostle, even jolt myself awake Knowing I am free to choose Free to overcome Clouds clear from my minds eye Knowing that at times We just need to create our own sunshine Confidently striking new chords Composing a new song Celebrating, rejoicing in success Realizing the essence of my own strength Courageously learning to master my self By Beth Beard
