A Letter To The Sensitive Souls
Dear sensitive Soul.
First, I just want to tell you how amazing you are.
How bright your light really is.
During times of darkness, you are our lighthouse. The lighthouse that shows us the way home through the fog.
We (as a society) have been lost at sea for quite a while now. And, although it's been adventurous, we've grown callouses from hoisting the sails and we've hardened and sharpened like icebergs, slicing and cutting down anything 'softer' that crosses our path.
But I see your light.
I feel your warm light.
Because I am you.
I get what it's like to feel so much that there are times when you wish you could just stop feeling all together.
I understand what it means to love other people so much but can't be around them for too long without feeling drained.
I know how it feels to predict (or intuitively know) what's going to happen, but never say a word to anyone about it because you don't want to be questioned or crushed by doubt, and then to watch it all unfold before your eyes.
I totally get feeling overstimulated and exhausted by social media... by the choices our politicians make... by the expectations we all place on one another (and on ourselves).
But, despite all of this - you persist, you endure, and you keep going...
Anytime someone comes along and tries to turn your light down, you pick yourself back up and keep shining.
Your sensitivity superpowers are a medicine that this world needs. Not to take from you, but to provide more fuel for you. We need your gifts and what you have to offer so much in this world.
But the world needs the fully-alive you…the authentic you. The well-rested you.
Instead of exhaustion and drain, imagine a world where all women made rest a priority and operated more from their true power.
That's the world you're about to enter (and create) if you dare to rest.
You are loved. You are enough. And I’m sending so much gratitude and appreciation, for you.
P.S. Our first live yoga nidra rest meditation is today in the Zen Femme Collective. If you'd like to join us, get unlimited replays, or join future classes and get some other beautiful resources, find out more here.
If we surrendered / to earth's intelligence / we could rise up rooted, like the trees.
