Vulnerability creates true strength, because it enables us to see beyond the facades and masks we tent to take on throughout our life’s. By being vulnerable ourselves with others, we give our environment the chance to see us in all our colors, rather than holding up a desired image of Self.
When we trust, when we feel loved, we are able to be seen by others and in the profound act of self-love, we are able to truly accept ourselves in all ways – always. This takes a jump into the cold water, as our society is conditioned in a very opposite manner: Be strong, be tough, be more. And the only solution I can see for that is ‘The Art of embracing Vulnerability as a Birthplace for true Strength’!
What helped me to make a change in my life and alchemize the fear to be seen for who I am into a joy to share myself open and vulnerable is the following:
Throughout my life I always felt like an apprentice of Love, the sacred Art to be Love, give Love and receive Love. Love for me is taught in an infinite amount of ways and by that I realized Love as the Essence of all existence. Observing the pattern of a dragon fly swirling around in shapes of sacred geometry opens my heart and motivates me to express myself joyfully and open. The ability to love is inside of everyone and as soon as we are taking some space to open our true ability and potential to love, we return to our nature.
When we arrive at our natural state, we don’t shy away from who we are in every moment or try to hide it in front of others. A profound acceptance of who we are in our impermeable nature arises. Every emotion we feel is there for a reason – it is there to be expressed! If we deny ourselves the sacred expression of Self, we prison ourselves in ourself.
A few years ago I was sitting by a fire at a beautiful festival in Germany and I suddenly was overwhelmed by a wave of sadness. My instinct was to leave immediately, be on my own and ‘deal’ with my sadness. Probably thinking, who would like to be with me, when I am sad and everyone around me is not? I stood up and a beautiful man asked me: ‘Why are you leaving?’
‘Well, I am sad!’, I told him.
He smiled, took my hand and sat me down again: ‘Then this is your place to be. I mean, nobody wants to be alone, when they are sad, right?’
I was blown away, I shared my sadness with a stranger, revealing, showing me true felt emotions and I received a beautiful lesson: When I am true with who I am and what I feel, I give everyone around me the opportunity to share their compassion, their wisdom and their Love with me.
