Standing Naked In The Mirror

I am sorry, please forgive me, I take full responsibility for not allowing you to BE.  For the past several years, in my pursuit of success, I pushed you aside.  When I first heard your whining, I hushed you.  When I heard you say you were scared, I told you not to worry and you would be fine. When you tried to share your feelings of shame, I politely told you to hold your chin up, there was no time for weakness or doubt, we had things to do.

This morning I stood naked in the mirror, trying to figure out why I was so sad.  I looked up and saw you.  I looked into your eyes and cried.  I am sorry, please forgive me,  I take full responsibility for not allowing you to BE.

For the first time in several years I saw you and felt your pain.  I did not hide our face, nor cover our mouth I just stood there naked in the mirror and allowed you to BE. Placing my hands over our heart, I whispered, “I see you…. I see you…I see you and I am not leaving.” As my feelings and emotions  expanded in my being, I never left our gaze. For a moment,  I thought I was going to explode and then, the feelings dissipated…. inhale….exhale… peace.

I have come to know, at least at this juncture of my earth walk, that when I leave parts of myself behind I don’t really move forward in wholeness. I understand we are multifaceted beings and yes my True Self is Wholeness, however, when there is  difficulty accepting this truth I explore what part or parts of  myself have a left behind.

In my experience, the process of recovering our fragments is beautifully painful.  Facing the shame and vulnerability can be tough. In my pursuit of “success”, I forgot  there will always be a part of me that is scared and unsure of her next steps.  I need to give her space to BE and bring her with me.

I feel this is the part we miss when moving forward in wholeness.   We think, if I open my closet and all of my bones fall out I have done something wrong. The Ego will seek to protect us, even when we are not in danger.  The Ego will go through great lengths to keep those bones tucked  away.   I say develop the skill of regularly listening to our bones and singing their lullaby.

What I am describing here is a form of self soul retrieval, and if we are aware, open and build this skill, we will not miss our opportunities to call our fragments  home.  The benefits of accepting our wholeness as our true SELF is inner peace. Inner peace equates to outer peace and that is a world worth creating.
