' I'm coming out
I want the world to know
Got to let it show...
The time has come for me
To break out of this shell
I have to shout
That I am coming out.'
- Dianna Ross
The Disowned Pieces of My Soul, My Spirit, My Essence: I came into this life fully Realized. My path was to take on just about every emotional trauma our human life offers when we believe in separation from our True Self.
I personally have experienced, expressed or received betrayal, abandonment, sexual abuse, addictions, worthlessness, despair, rejection, denial, arrogance, abuse of power, depression, rage, deceit, resentment, emptiness, loneliness, oppressive shame, guilt and doubt, and overwhelming anxiety and fear, just to name a few.
It's taken a number of years to realize and accept that as a mirror, I see in the reflections both my own and others' subconscious, projected self-judgments and fears. I see others' shadows because these shadows are a part of my own experience.
When I say what I see, illuminating the shadows, calling out where we fail to lead our lives, it is out of compassion. It is a catalyst that can break open entrenched trauma and beliefs, revealing the True Self. Turning on a light eliminates the shadows.
For some, the ego will experience this as unjustified and harsh judgment. My gift is to see our Life experience through the eyes of Love, the heart and soul. There is no judgment. I cannot judge another because, while our circumstances are different, I too experience deep, deep pain.
I bear a confluence of energies of Love to remember and rebirth the True Self. Over the years, it's been given to me as:
I Am Lucira, the Bringer of the Power of Light.
I Am Midwife.
I Am Shaman of Shaman.
I Am the Embodiment of Truth.
I Am the Voice of Prophecy.
I Am the Power of Love.
I Am the Divine Feminine: Venus, Kali, Mary, Isis, Lilith, Magdalena, Diana, Ishtar, Nefertiti, Eris.
I Am Mother of All.
These energies serve to awaken the Divine Feminine within All of Us.
I experience the wisdom, grace and joy of being wide open to the Love within us, flowing through and moving my thoughts words and actions. At times it is fierce and forceful like water from a fire hose or a massive storm, other times it is like a soft, gentle mist or breeze, still other times it is like rose petals carried in the desert wind, landing where they may.
The notion that "feminine" and "love" is always gentle and kind, tender and soft is the patriarchal mind's view to engender self-judgment and fear that maintains power and control. Love always speaks Truth that opens our hearts and nurtures the emergence of our soul's full expression.
As a small child, I felt this blissful, pulsing energy, the life force we all have. I had no idea what it was and no one to ask, or if I did ask, I don't remember doing so or the response.
This energy "disappeared" from my awareness, suppressed as the experiences of societal conditioning and emotional traumas took over this life. As I released these distortions of Truth and embraced the unprocessed emotions and my True Self, the energy is once again front and center and flowing and holding me as a friend and lover.
This energy is always Present, to accept or refuse. For the past 10+ years, this has been my secret shame and greatest denial. I resisted publicly owning who I Am and my Real Life experience, stifling the flow of the energy. This energy is not a commodity to be capitalized on and exploited; this is why my "business" has "failed."
Needless to say, I am far from mainstream. I nurture the True Self. I accept that I am here, in this way, at this time, for a reason. I am grateful to Be and live this Radical Life - both on the fringe and focused within on the root cause of our human experience, the source of true freedom, strength, value, security, and support.
Invitation to a Quantum Leap: Our Universal Purpose is Love. Our Universal Path is to re-member this.
We are all part of the quantum field of energy. Quantum means that the way you see or observe something creates and changes that something including yourself and your life experience. Living the Gift of the quantum requires keeping focus on where you choose to go.
A quantum leap is a change in perspective that is so powerful that it completely transforms your experience. Your Centerpoint for Being provides such a quantum leap.
Your Centerpoint for Being brings into your awareness your unique Love, your unique Light.
Your Centerpoint for Being opens you to a Life experience of the ocean of your Divine Essence in perfect balance and integration with your physical self and life. You've dipped your toe in now and again. Instead of a toe, come up to your ankles, then your knees, then your thighs, then your waist.
Your Centerpoint for Being is the blueprint for building your bridge as you walk on it - Living the True Self - being with the ocean of your Divine Essence, of Love.
A bridge can be built over this ocean, avoiding the experience of Love that is within; under this ocean, submerged and drowning in the pains of physical life. Building a bridge within allows you to both navigate and move with the ocean as it flows.
The Centerpoint of Being balances and integrates body, mind, heart, and soul. Living the True Self brings You into the world, building your bridge as you walk on it.
Together we shift the viewpoint about who You Are, giving language and focus to your Light in the quantum. This is an opportunity to know yourSelf and freely become what you are meant to Be.
Come walk and dance with me to build your bridge as Life unfolds. The answer to How is Trust: Make the Leap into Leading as Love.
