Mostly, our greatest learning comes from the mistakes we have made in our lives. It's so easy to slip into regret and sadness about what could have been, or how we could have done things differently. It's only in the last few years that I have come to understand that, instead of burying these ‘shameful’ experiences, they are a rich part in my soul development, and I now embrace them with an open heart and mind. What a different culture we would live in if we were encouraged to talk about our life path and how much our disappointments and regrets have shaped us into the powerful people we are becoming. The extremes of our life experiences are where we are forced to challenge ourselves, and where soul growth is at its most fruitful. At that knife edge of understanding, the point of transformation and growth, there is a choice to be made and it can be hard to follow the new, unknown and unchallenged future.
Life can rip us open as it forces us to let go of our family patterning and our old learnt behaviour. We are taught how to fit in to our family, not often by clear teaching and discussion, but by subtle implication. A look, being judged, shouted at, ignored or laughed at when we don't comply, is a passive aggressive way of controlling us. We learn to fit in because often we have been shamed into it, not because it feels right for us. We face ourselves and find out who we are, what strengths we possess and how brave we can be. We don’t do this by standing still, we do it by taking risks and saying yes to life. Yes to change, yes to self-love, yes to standing strong in our own truth no matter what others are doing or thinking. I always call this our ‘Joan of Arc’ moment. That time when you know that you have to stand by your truth and face maybe a tide of opposition or criticism. The point is you did what was right for you and the consequences are the result for you to then work from.
Being brave enough to make a mistake is saying yes to the universe and to life. Many times we have to push through shame to explore the freedom, and I find the best way to do that is to allow our creativity to flow forth into the world. It doesn’t matter how it comes through you but just let it come. Don't judge yourself. Does a daisy judge if it is good enough or pretty enough, or has enough petals? No, it does not!
A daisy is a daisy because that is what it is…….So who are you without the programming from your childhood and the beliefs of others? You are a creative genius, powerful being, flowing with Universal love if you allow it. That creation flows through us in so many ways. Cooking, laughing, dancing, making our own clothes, creating a lovely space in which to live. Whatever you do, embrace those mistakes you think you made and become more like a daisy. Just be you and allow the shame of life to flow away from you. Shame from the past is a total waste of your energy. Allow yourself to create in any shape or form that works for you, don't judge it just embrace it. Just be a human daisy!
Painting is my form of expressing creativity and I feel more connected to Source energy painting than in any other aspect of my life. Before I paint, to help get me get in the groove, I use the sacral chakra spray for freedom and creativity and I repeat the affirmation:
“I unleash fun and creativity from within me now."
Ten years ago the instructions to start making Zephorium vibrational products flowed through me and I did as I was told! Since then we have linked with like-minded souls all over the planet who are helping us to share these high energy vibrational products.
Why are things of such beauty so quick to disappear? Maybe we wouldn’t appreciate them if they were there all year round, maybe like all precious things we need to know what life is like without them, in order to appreciate life with them.
