If I were to pick a word for 2020 it would be ALCHEMY.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to alchemize and how I’ve gone through such enormous shifts the past couple of years.
But this year, especially, I feel this.
All the ups and downs, the heartbreak and joy, the uncertainty and knowing, of the past, have come together inside me in ways that can only be described as sacred.
It may sound cliché, but I’m truly a different person. One who loves deeper than ever before. One who trusts my inner-knowing without a lot of resistance (though there’s still moments). And one who knows who I am, in a more authentic way than I could have imagined when this year began.
Here’s the thing...
This shift didn’t come from doing, striving, goal setting, or forcing myself into submission.
It’s been an unraveling and a coming back together in the most organic, allowing sense.
An awakening and a remembering.
When we are able to let go of the ideas of who we are “supposed” to be and allow the light of who we are space to shine, that’s where the magic is.
And from there, we have room to allow the integration, of all our experiences, to propel us forward and closer to our unique truths.
