Almost every day I witness self responsibility and self love being used as a vehicle to the safety of isolation. I’m sending love out to all my fellow “I’ve got me” people along with “step 2.”

.
Step 1 - hold yourself
Step 2 - now do that in relationships

.
Self awareness, self responsibility, following your own heart, listening to yourself, and self love is not so that we don’t have to be in relationships with other people. Self love does not equal isolation. The whole point of self love is so that you can lovingly hold and accept all parts of you so that you can actually be in authentic relationships. Ones where the other person isn’t in charge of your self worth but able to support you in the things driven by your vulnerability and self worth. We fall in love with ourselves so that we are fully available for the authentic relationships that that we are craving.

With so much Love,
Marie

I sooooo wish I could show you what happened next with these! It amazes me every time when people are given a space to allow their creativity in to help express what is happening inside. Day 2 was an incredible exploration into the boxes inside that hold the moments in our past who are waiting to be held and witnessed. So many times when shit happens we put a lid on it and stuff it in a shelf somewhere hoping to never find it again. Ever do that??? But here’s the thing, the body remembers and the lid that we thought was on tightly starts to rattle a bit. When we take the lid off and hold what happened we can see it in the place of now instead of then. What would happen if you unpacked some of your emotional boxes?

Each time I hold space for retreat work I am amazed at the brave, vulnerable, strength people have when they want to experience their life differently. It’s like their soul is nudging them to remind them that they are not their trauma, they are way more. Even if you are not ready to step away from the darkness, you can still bring light in...you can have both.
.
This was our opening night circle held with intention, self permission, and lots of stepping out of comfort zones, and holding both the light and dark.

.
What a beautiful first night!

With so much Love,
Marie
