For much of my life I have been in confusion over my power. Like so many other people, for the first 35 years I worked diligently to ignore it, in favor of “fitting in.” Fitting in always seemed to hold out more possibility, more potential, and more excitement for me. Of course that is related to a core misunderstanding: that we need others to accomplish anything, not least of which is being happy.
Because I now know we don’t.
All that is required is to wake up and claim my own divinity, my own connection to God, to the source of all that is, as I am one of the infinite cells of this beingness. As are you. And all those others we may not “like” for whatever reasons du jour.
The intensity of your discomfort equals the exact intensity of your power, once you’ve reclaimed it. – Lola Jones, of DivineOpenings.com
This quote resonated with me today as I have several patches of skin that have erupted on numerous places of my body. It itches a lot. It has gotten more intense this week, though I have been doing things to relieve it – including lots of dialog with the divine, without trying to ask over and over again for “da cure.” My small self thinks it should have gone away sooner, such as in the snap of a finger. Another part of me understands that I keep gaining insights from the itching and blisters – I am truly wanting to shed the skin I am and erupt as truer, more powerful version of me! The skin is also my protection and these obvious blisters on my arm and leg are keeping me away from people by my own choice. This private retreat is a delicious journey into my potential and I am loving that part of this!
