The reason we don’t fit in!
After a very long day on the road, I’ve finally reached Costa Rica! I got a good night’s sleep and now it’s 4am Costa Rican time and I’m totally awake. In my travels, I ended up missing a couple days of connection with the Be Open Community – and I really wanted to check in as we just finished one of our practices, and that usually bring up a lot of “stuff” for people. (It’s so rarely just about intuition!)
As I read through what everyone was talking about in Be Open, one person’s post really stood out to me. She’d never officially studied animal communication or intuition or anything like that. She’s someone who was looking for a community where she could receive emotional support and explore her intuitive senses and Be Open is the community she chose.
Her post in the group was about how dejected she was feeling after the last animal Be Open intuitive communication practice. After comparing her impressions from the horse with the impressions from other people in the group, she was upset because of how “clinical” everything she wrote was.
But this is the funny part! She totally skipped over the fact that so much of the info she shared with us was completely correct and that her ability to get 3D details about this horse’s was spot on and instead chose to focus on the fact that, the way she read was so different from the way she thought others were reading.
Being different seems to be a theme in the world lately. Everyone wants to know the reason they don’t fit in. We think that safety comes from blending in, avoiding being noticed, being able to “be” just like everyone else – and yes, that is a type of safety.
But it’s not a safety that allows us to explore our strengths! It’s not a safety that pushes us to find our passions – it’s only a safety that keeps us small, undiscovered, and away from any conflict.
Isn’t it interesting that so many of us want to blend in! Even when doing something that’s out of the ordinary, like playing with our intuition, we’re still desperately trying to play with our intuition in the “normal” way.
Today is the day to accept that there really isn’t any normal! There really isn’t an overall BEST way for everyone.
The true expression of unconditional love looks different for each and every one of us – and it’s through that truest expression of unconditional love that we find our leaders, our innovators, and ultimately our selves.
Are you trying to blend in? Are you trying to be like everyone else? Perhaps it’s time to accept that you’re not like everyone else (and neither is everyone else like everyone else). You’re just NOT like anyone out there. When you start to realize that there is no normal, that others are faking it too, that you’re not meant to be like everyone else, the opportunities the universe is handing you to be YOU begin to seem fun, exciting, maybe a little scary, but motivating, and stimulating. Plus, it will aid you in liking your WHOLE self a whole lot more!
Love and Light,
