The Chance To Be Seen

I want you to see who I am. I want to lay down the walls of protection, erected when I did not know better and allow you to see into the radiance of my soul. I am ready to clear away any wayward thoughts of who I should be and step further into who I am truly am. I am ready to shine without worry of repercussions. I am ready to be seen.


There are moments for everyone…moments when the opportunity to stand up tall within yourself comes present. To let the incendiary thoughts of judgments burn themselves away, leaving ample room for you to be the magnificent being that you are. The paradigms of other times fall away, leaving you with yourself. As yourself. For yourself. In service to the blossoming of us all.

This is that moment. Because it can be. Because it always is. This is the moment, where you can drop the false notions of who you think you should be…and show up in the wonder and awe of exactly who you are. It is time to allow the world the privilege of witnessing the wild elegance of your being.

It takes anchoring deep into the essence of your loving. You must embrace the far flung aspects of you…those that like, love and rage. It takes the ability to laugh. At yourself. At the funny play of life. Mostly, though, it takes a desire to heed the calling of experience that each and every one us are born with.

Drop the masks of perfection. Clear away the stories that have shackled you in. And say it! Whatever it is. Declare it. Scream it. Do it. Tell the world who you are. Who you want to be. Fling the doors open and let us see the beautiful chaos that is falling perfectly into place. Love yourself as you do it. I will love you right back.


Who am I? I am me. Wild. Wonderful. Perfectly human and mightily imperfect. I giggle. Laugh. Cry. I often fall asleep while meditating, but I do it anyway. I court the mystical, knowing that it follows me closely. I love to sing along to cheesy pop, trying to feel the lyrics as deeply as possible. I long to be of service in big, meaning filled ways. I get caught up in details. I am excellent at what I do. I have failed. And I know now that it does not matter. What matters is that I refuse to quit.

I get scared just before going on a roller coaster but I want to get right back on once it’s done. I love red meat. I have drawn myself naked. I’ve rubbed genie lamps and waited in vain for wishes to be granted. I have taken bold action. Moved through the fear. And am living my dreams come true. I lust. I crave. I teach. I have fallen in love with my life. I help people fall in love with theirs. I like to connect with people as much as I like to sit on my chaise was watch Mad Men. I’ve struggled with my body. With food. With kindness towards myself. I take time to bring myself delicious pleasure. I’m willing to work my process in service to loving me in the best ways possible. I wish some things were different. I like many things just as they are. I am willing to make mistakes. To make things right. To make magic. I am willing to be me. Are you?
