I came across this quote by Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram and it resonated so deep within me, that I felt the need to share it with you all. It states:
“My only focus each day is to be myself, live my true passions, inspire greater health and wear my soul shamelessly, with strength and grace.” – Kistina Carrillo-Bucaram (@fullyrawkristina)
…How incredibly beautiful is that?
For those of you who know me, you know that I am incredibly in tune with my spirituality and energies are important to me. I trust the vibrations I receive and always strive for harmony.
There is a beautiful piece of writing by an unknown author, which basically tells you to listen to your emotions. I am going to share this with you, because if you are like me, then you will appreciate the beauty of this piece. I found this on a facebook page titled: Berlin Artparasites.
Hey you, listen to your emotions…
Bitterness shows you where you need to heal, where you’re still holding judgements on others and yourself.
Resentment shows you where you’re living in the past and not allowing the present to be as it is.
Discomfort shows you that you need to pay attention right now to what is happening, because you’re being given the opportunity to change, to do something different than what you typically do.
Anger shows you what you’re passionate about, where your boundaries are, and what you believe needs to change about the world.
Disappointment shows that you tried for something, that you did not give into apathy, that you still care.
Guilt shows you that you’re still living a life in other people’s expectations of what you should do.
Shame shows you that you’re internalizing other people’s beliefs about who you should be and that you need to reconnect with yourself.
Anxiety shows you that you need to wake up, right now, and be present, that you’re still stuck in the past and living in fear of the future.
Sadness shows you the depth of your feelings, the depth of your care for others and this world. – Unknown
As a person who suffers from anxiety, I think it really is important to be in touch with your emotions and feelings. Listen to your emotions and always be authentic. Be unapologetic in your evolution. In order to grow and develop, we need to trust ourselves and acknowledge all feelings. We need to appreciate the remarkable feelings but also listen to the deeper meaning behind the not-so-great feelings. Take a second to reflect on your feelings. Hindsight is the best foresight. Respect yourself. Respect the process. Respect the feelings and emotions. Do not be ashamed for feeling a certain way.
Basically, what I’m trying to say is, listen to your emotions, they tell you things about yourself and respect that process in order to grow to your higher potential.
To conclude, I’d like to end by a quote shared with me by my friend Anke. It’s a little quote that fits well with the emotions whilst traveling.
“Traveling is brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends.
You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things: air, sleep, dreams, sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it”
I wish you peace, light, and love. Thank you for reading and for the support! Bloom and Blossom in all your glory my friends.
