What strongly has been coming up for me the past two days is judgement.
It prevents us from fully stepping in our power and speaking our truth. It blocks our voice because we are paralyzed with fear on the inside. We know how others can judge and it makes us feel small and insignificant. We feel ashamed and already wrong before we even expressed ourselves. We are afraid to share our thoughts and feelings publicly and to strangers because we think we will be rejected and attacked for sharing our truth.
When I share my posts I usually get positive responses but sometimes people get triggered by them and jump to conclusions. Yes, even in positive posts people can find something that is speaking to their own pain.
If you feel this way then I want you to know that what you feel is also from past lives where you have been burnt at the stake for being one with nature, killed for being honest, stoned for being a woman, punished for begging for food, silenced for voicing your opinion.
We all carry the codes of humanity in us and we all feel judgement because it is in our cells and passed down to us from our ancestors. The main reason why people feel like they can judge others is because they judge themselves and are too hard on themselves: not feeling worthy enough, not smart enough, not strong enough, not rich enough, not significant enough… Plenty of reasons to not like ourselves and judge ourselves in a such a hard way that we project it onto others.
When people are mean to you and tell you everything you are not then it is THEIR perception and THEIR vision of what you trigger in them. You are a catalyst, you are a teacher to them and what you need to do is stay in your space and let them have their own experience. Kindly send back their energy and focus on your own truth and your own light. Even if it does not resonate with others it is still true and meaningful because what you feel is valid.
This is a lesson for us all: staying in our own light even if we feel judged or attacked. Focus back on our our heart and stay in a compassionate and loving space for ourselves so we can feel this for the ones that we have triggered. It takes practice and we will get triggered to help us be reminded we need to set our boundaries and keep believing that what we have to say and express is in fact just as true as anyone else’s truth.
Be aware of what is your energy and what is somebody else’s and send back their energy with love, compassion and understanding. Let your own truth be a reflection and expression of who you are and love yourself so much that you can rise above the judgement that others are projecting on to you.
I am facing this myself and learning how to speak what I feel despite what others think. Everyone has the right to be in their truth but I have come to understand it is not necessary to agree or to have a discussion and make others understand my truth. Whereas before I would engage and explain what I mean I now see that it is all right to have different opinions and not to understand me. It is all right to be me and it is all right to be you.
I love you all for who you are, even if you trigger me and bring up my own pain. You are my teachers and I value your truth. ❤️
