There are a lot of lies around abuse.
They may not be what you think I might say.
When you've been exposed to abusive events as a baby, how would you have words for that?
We're encouraged to speak our story, so we can have clarity. And yet, how would we do that when we may have been present as small children - present with events that may have been 'out of our control' and that may have consumed us with their nastiness and horror when we couldn't reach doorhandles or walk out of a house or get to people we felt safe with?
These events may have been extreme or subtle.
And then you may have witnessed the normalisation of said events and a settling down into 'normalcy' also when you were without words and the capacity to find sane sanctums.
You may have witnessed the abuser being defended by someone else even - including those who know nothing about what happened. You may have seen things like this being ignored - even in plain daylight with dozens of people looking on and doing nothing.
You may see people complicit in abusive situations - even defend abusers in a court of law, when they know nothing about what happens when everyone else is gone.
But you know you.
There are some that also know you.
At some level we all know each other and truly we are not separate.
What happens to one of us, happens to all of us.
When we give space to ourselves to bear witness to what happened, it may help.
When we make space to see who we truly be - the vast magnificence and the glory of being - we know that nothing can harm us.
We are indestructible and fierce. We are gloriously vulnerable and yielding. We are potent and kind. We can play with the molecules of the entire universe.
And having that as a reality in our lives may take making some changes.
Why someone chooses to abuse another is an understandable preoccupation, yet it may never bear fruit.
Paying attention to the glory and beauty of you, however, now that is totally worth the space and kindness!
There are mechanisms to keeping ourselves in doubt.
When we withdraw our agreement to having that doubt for ourselves, things can change. And this is a distinct possibility for all of us.
I see a world where unkind people have created victims of potent beings.
Because they could.
Let's rise up out of doubt and be the phenomenal beings we truly be!
I am proud to say that my body and I have amazing capacities with creating much greater ease for people with coming out of the lies of abuse. And people that have received them have looked at me with faces beyond description that demonstrated so much.
Rather like the words above that only scratch the surface of this story that becomes the glory of unimpeded beauty, when you get to knowing the truth of you - that magnificent beauty of you!
I'm not altogether comfortable to write like this and yet what I see around me - the beautiful beings that are stuck in the loop that abuse can create - and the change that I know is possible - I'll shout it from the rooftops, if it means that someone amazing that has bought the lies of abuse can be freer or even completely free!
The truth is that you are glorious beyond words.
The truth is you know that.
No matter how many beings have forced you to demonstrate that wasn't true.
That doesn't stop the truth being.
You are glorious in your beauty.
You are magnificent.
And we delight in you.
What will it take for you to fully delight in you?
