I’m so bored of the current “I’m Offended” Culture.
Everyone is offended by everything now. Everyone is trying to cen$or everybody that doesn’t agree with them. (Including IG & all their shad0w bans, etc.)
Nobody is allowed their own opinion if it goes against the grain?
I used the word C*CK in this pic – are you offended?
Guess what – MOST of the freedoms you blissfully enjoy are your reality because someone before you had the COJONES to speak their truth & GO AGAINST THE MASSES – which was certainly considered radical, polarizing & had consequences at the time. Many were killed or ostracized for speaking out.
I was reflecting yesterday on the accounts I follow here on IG – mostly women & artists who are RADICALLY DIFFERENT, CONTROVERSIAL, RAW, AUTHENTIC & NOT MAINSTREAM. Some of the most incredible healers I know have “small’ follower counts (or NO social media at all actually) & no blue check marks. That’s what turns me on, makes me think, inspires me to show up more fully.
And I realized how often I (WE) subconsciously censor myself after a lifetime of being conditioned to do so – AND what it’s ultimately cost me to silence myself,
What has it cost you?
When I speak openly about sex or sexuality, my numbers always drop.
When I put my foot down recently with family & said NO to the V, I was given an ultimatum & a lecture, complete with shaming & personal ridiculing bc I had the audacity to NOT conform & bc I view my health as a HOLISTIC PIC, not from a MYOPIC lens (also, everyone is free to choose for themselves – do you! But don’t tell me what to do with my body when I’m perfectly capable of taking FULL A$$ RESPONSIBILITY for my health/wellbeing bc I’m a sovereign adult, which includes any & all consequences of MY choices, because that’s #SpiritualAdulting).
When I checked in with my Higher Self & said out loud before bed “if this is the best decision for my highest good, please show me a way forward” I suddenly manifested an apartment afters years of delay & had the lease signed within 48 HOURS of asking!
*ENTER BLESSINGS FOR STANDING IN YOUR TRUTH*
This is why I am moving unexpectedly – because I knew it was time to be free & also bc I chose to SPEAK MY TRUTH & SET BOUNDARIES.
Speaking of setting boundaries, I’ve been name-called & attacked for staying true to them.
When I go middle-road with my messaging here, I attract wishy-washy followers who aren’t invested in themselves OR in my TRUE self/what I have to offer here – they’re often easily offended, too. This is what made the last incarnation of my biz fizzle out – when I got real, the majority fell off.
On the flipside, when I started speaking from the SOUL (not fear), the right clients came out of the woodwork, the offerings were being channeled easily – FLOW STATE ARRIVED.
I could go on, but you get the point.
YES, speaking your truth iS going to rock the boat.
People say they want change, but when it comes to putting REAL skin in the game – CRICKETS.
When I post things that are polarizing, they get the most leverage on the algorithm – why?
Because deep down you’re probably DYING to do the same, to speak YOUR radical truth – but you’re afraid, because being a wave-maker means you’ll have to face loss, rejection & all those childhood wounds get hit.
AND SO? What’s it costing you NOT to do this?
When you censor your truth, your energy gets all F*CKED & you’re not in alignment with what’s REALLY meant for you. It’s a form of self-sabotage. We have to UN-LEARN what we were taught if we want to be free in this lifetime.
I want to see REAL PEOPLE, REAL HUMANS with REAL VOICES freely expressing themselves.
