I used to battle myself over the dichotomy between fragility and strength. Something that I had absorbed from the collective mind, but also stemming from what I had been taught from a very early age, namely; if you are too sensitive, you won’t survive in this world.
In my mind as a child, I was led to put everything (i.e. delicate, sensitive, vulnerable, and gentle) under the same label: fragility.
As I was learning this fragility vs. strength duality, it often felt like heartbreak as I was taught to repress and forget a huge part of myself which was so natural to me. I began to breathe at less than my full capacity.
I am telling this personal story today since I know that so many of us have been taught the same paradigm; that in order to become strong and fit individuals, we believed that we had to shut down our own sensitivity. So we learned and developed survival strategies in order to cope with our ‘hypersensitivity’. This phenomenon happened worldwide, for so long.
Much later, when my life had become too chaotic (a blessing in disguise) for me to keep on going the usual way, I decided to consciously embrace my spiritual path. However, even if it felt like the most obvious answer to my troubles and provided me with such profound relief, it also scared and shook me to my core. Embracing self-healing and spiritual growth meant that I would have to allow my sensitivity to emerge and flow through me again.
Logically, when we grow spiritually, we raise our vibration. Likely, raising our vibration also means raising our sensitivity. What is actually a blessing appeared to be a curse for many.
Strangely now, as I become more and more sensitive, I still face challenges and wounds in my life. Ironically though, I do so with so much greater clarity and strength than before.
Ironically? Well, it seems that I had it all wrong! Many of you know that as we fully accept ourselves and nourish all those parts that remained in the shadow, we really come into our full real power, which is huge!
Whether we realize (or not) that we are not alone on this quest, fully loving ourselves for who we are makes all the difference. It does not mean that we will never suffer again. However, as patterns of self-doubt and self-worth issues are gradually being replaced by self-love, painful moments are faced with less gravity and are dealt with more effectively. Self-love means allowing whatever is felt to be experienced and released, and yet, not giving away our own power and energy to external events and people. Simply because we know that we deserve the best.
As the trees have pointed out (see previous message “Your Majestic Presence – A message from the Mighty Trees” on my blog), there is an inner core of peace, stability, and stillness within each one of us which remains intact, no matter what happens. It is much easier to feel this innate sense of peace and strength when we fully love and accept who we are.
To come back to the notion of fragility, nature offers us numerous examples of delicate creatures that are powerful beyond belief. Take the butterfly, for instance. The monarch butterfly travels from Canada to Mexico back and forth, which spans the life of three to four generations of the butterfly… Even if no individual will make the trip back and forth, the distance that each one is able to travel compared to their tiny size and delicate structure is incommensurable. There is no possible denial. These delicate and fragile creatures are really strong!
When I was in my early 20s, I became really sick. Suddenly, I could no longer eat the way I used to and had to change my diet entirely. I used to resist this as I felt that I had become too fragile for my young age. Thankfully, I have come to realize over the years that this detoxifying of my body and integrating new food habits was yet another blessing in disguise on my path to self-love. In doing so, my body has become rejuvenated and I am much more resistant to illness than before. I am more resistant simply because I honor and respect my sensitivity. Therefore, I make sure not to push myself into situations where I used to deny this sensitive-me in order to please others and forcefully adapt to ‘toxic’ situations that did not serve my highest good.
As we raise our individual and collective vibrations, especially now at the time of the New Earth, each one of us is becoming more and more sensitive at his/her own pace. Nonetheless, becoming highly sensitive is inevitable. The good news is that the New Earth energies are fully supporting this raising consciousness and sensitivity.
Becoming seemingly fragile, and yet stronger, is part of the new paradigm.
Think of all the masters and saints who have set foot on Earth and those who are walking on this plane right now. They can be so highly sensitive and gentle, and yet, you shall agree with me in claiming that they are hugely powerful. We are the masters too, and we are called to embrace and shine who we truly are, wholeheartedly.
Think of the incoming new children who tend to be highly sensitive. Can you see it as a blessing? They are here to teach us how to allow our own delicacy and sensitivity again. For it is the only way to allow our natural gifts of clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and claircognizance to fully unfold.
Are you ready to breathe at a 100% of your capacity?
You may be surprised at how much more you can accomplish (often more rapidly and with less effort) when you allow your fragility, your sensitivity and gentleness to flow and express themselves through you. Why? Simply because you are not offering so much resistance and pushing against what is naturally flowing to you: Love. When you allow and love yourself fully, you allow all your creativity and dreams to manifest easily. The source of the universe delivers what you ask for, and you welcome it with ease and gentleness rather than blocking it with fear and resistance.
You are powerful beyond measure, in the fullness of who you are.
And remember, you are all loved unconditionally at all times, no matter what.
Allow and love your sensitivity and fragility, for it is a gift from heaven, and it is your birthright.
With Love and Light,
