I have often been the person to have faith in people, to see the light before the dark, to give chance after chance to those who have one time too many taken this attribute for granted. The expectation for people to be a certain way, regardless of what they were showing to me from our first encounter, always lingered over me. As I deepened my connection with myself, my connection with spirituality and honed my intuitive skills, it has given me the acknowledgement that people are on their own path, and sometimes their soul just isn’t in alignment with mine. As I deepened my connection with myself I was able to discover those blind spots within myself, the spots where I hid because it was comfortable and because my ego and fear got in the way. Recently, I found myself in a situation where I was given an opportunity, which originally was what I thought I ‘needed’ or ‘wanted’ but soon after the universe revealed to me that is was not for my highest good and the energy around it was not in alignment with my authenticity. This situation then lead me to discover the reason behind what it is I create and why I create the work that I do.
Having always been a giver, I have always been a creator of things, be it writing, art, photography and providing creative opportunities to which generate and add value to my world around me. I give to those around me, because this is the most honest expression of who I am, therefore I formed my business based on that identity. What I came to realize with this, came a weakness and a naivety on my part, as I found to subconsciously be attracted to the energy of takers, those not in alignment with the same capacity to give as me. As I gave, my ideas, my authenticity and my inspirations, the cycle began as I breeded an energy as an easy source to leech from. A simple opportunity revealed such an expansive realization to me, it was because I felt the more inspiration or creativity the taker took from me, it put me in a place where I was inspired to continually create more, which felt almost like a growth opportunity for me. ⬇️Continue below.
