On my PerMISSION ME journey I have come to realise that what it is really about is my finally allowing myself to come to balance with my feminine and masculine energies in all areas of my life.
It is still work in progress of course. In some areas of my life I have been and am still more dominant with my feminine energy than my masculine and vice versa.
I think of the feminine as the callings of my heart and the masculine as the choices of my mind. When these are in balance we are capable of achieving our dreams.
With an imbalance towards the of the heart (the feminine) then beauty is perceived and even perhaps created but nothing actually gets done with it in terms of OWNING it and putting it OUT THERE INTO THE WORLD. The imbalance towards the mind (the masculine) and there is too much doing and thinking and not enough being or creating. We come to CLAIM the things we CAN or SHOULD DO not necessarily the stuff we actually WANT to do.
So we need all aspects of ourselves to work together in harmony in a kind of biosymbotic relationship where one literally feeds off the other for their mutual success.
Here is the secret I have really learnt: that feminine energy MUST come first. THE HEART MUST LEAD!
To be fulfilled, to achieve our dreams, to be on purpose, to love, to FEEL, to connect we must listen to our heart.
To RESPOND to it’s call we need to utilise our mind.
For our mind to take ACTION on the seemly abstract, intangible and unachievable goals of the heart, it must not have an opinion!
Oh how I have struggled to let that one go being a girl of MUCH opinion! Quite literally I have clung onto my opinion and the so called facts about our reality for dear life whether they have served me or not.
In an attempt to balance this out I have long pursued getting to know my heart and though a variety of methods I have, I am and I will forevermore as I am committed to this deepening practise.
In doing so I have become more and more aware of the controlling nature of my mind especially on an unconscious level. I have learnt to interrupt what had become automatic beliefs, thought patterns and behaviours.
But it wasn’t until I decided to surrender to my heart did I finally LET GO of my needing to have my mind in charge. I realised I was absolutely in control of IT and in doing so I was in the drivers’ seat of my life. I knew then that I could and would create the life I dream of.
In a instant I was FREE!
I cannot tell you the elation, relief and revelation (and a little frustration!) to know that I had had the FREEDOM all along!
You have it inside of you too.
Like everything you want in life, having FREEDOM is a CHOICE.
Sure there are a whole series of choices and actions to be taken from that decision but essentially YOU GIVING YOURSELF PERMISSION is your freedom.
Whilst it is simply a decision it isn’t necessarily that easy to make it. There is work to be done within to fully OWN your freedom. This is why it is a mission. There is a journey that must precede giving yourself permission in order to come to that knowing like you KNOW, like YOU KNOW, that YOU.HAVE.PERMISSION.
Once you OWN your permission then you get to MAKE.IT.HAPPEN; the stuff your dreams are made of.
Making your dreams your reality of course requires more work, mostly internal though yes you need action. But when you have truly given yourself permission to be FULLY YOU, you will KNOW WITHOUT DOUBT that YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL. ON YOUR TERMS. NOW.
So I invite you to come back to balance of energy in all areas of your life; your relationships, health and fitness, wellbeing, work, purpose and money.
Where in your life are you more feminine, more heart-led? What make you feel good? What do you need to believe in order to value your heart’s callings and make them a priority? What can you do to bring a little (or a lot!) more action to bring these ideas to life?
Where if your life are you more masculine, more mind-led? What are the thoughts and beliefs that your hold in these areas? Which ones serve you? What ones don’t? What does your heart say is the way?
When in balance you have infinite potential and power. You are FREE!
