Ahhhh, the sneaky, subconscious ways we hide from or resist true intimacy!
If we want deep connection, part of that requires choosing to OPEN UP.
It requires vulnerability and allowing ourselves to be SEEN. In all our humanness & “imperfection”, when we don’t feel lovable or worthy – ESPECIALLY then!
If we want deeper love, we have to risk disappointment or getting hurt.
If we want intimacy, we have to also become intimate with our own self, the parts of us that feel uncomfortable or cringey, and start to bring love there. And awareness. And compassion.
Profound intimacy requires presence, discernment and conscious decisions to go ALL in (including awareness of when we’re attracted to potential partners that aren’t willing or ready to do the same), even when it’s new or scary or “risky” to the wounded parts of us that want to push closeness away (for fear of being rejected, not seen, etc.)
Often we subconsciously resist intimacy because that pain cycle reinforces some hidden belief that we don’t feel worthy of being fully received – by ourselves OR by another.
PS: We’ll be cultivating a much closer, more intimate relationship with our bodies in the Return of Venus Immersion – the daily embodiment practices are the core essence of the entire 5 week offering.
~As you connect in this way with yourself, it becomes easier and more natural to let others fully see you, too. As within, so without.
~Enrollment for the RETURN OF VENUS PRIESTESS IMMERSION closes this Friday, so you’ve got a few more days to join in. APPLY HERE
