Explorations and Reflections

on awakening the true self

Peel off the Tape

Do you ever ignore the dashboard lights in your car that tell you when something is wrong or needs maintenance? Perhaps your tire pressure is low, it’s time for an oil change, or the check engine light comes on.

If we don’t deal with it, our minds acclimate to the dashboard indicators after a little while, and other times we outright avoid them. It’s as if we’ve put tape over the signal so we no longer have to see it.

We also do this frequently in our lives.

Each time we sell out on our own commitments, our own inner wisdom, our own integrity, our own sense of what’s good and true for us, others, and the world, we’re training ourselves to ignore our internal signals.

When we say "yes" to something when we really mean "no."

When we say "no" to inspiration because we're afraid of looking bad.

When we gossip or complain or otherwise dishonor another.

When we break a promise to ourselves or someone else.

When we take a habitual action that we know isn’t good for us.

When we distract ourselves instead of sitting with discomfort.

When we indulge instead of allowing urges and impulses to dissipate on their own.

Many of us have gotten trained by family, friends, school, and culture to ignore the whispers of truth and integrity speaking to us.

It doesn't matter who it was that originally trained us: it's now on us how we show up.

It just seems so inconvenient sometimes to deal with those indicator lights, doesn’t it??

And yet…ignoring that inner whisper is ultimately unhealthy - physically, emotionally, mentally, and/or spiritually - for us and others.

The more we learn to relate bravely, compassionately, and generously with ALL parts of ourselves, the more alignment we experience at all levels of our being - and the more in tune our own Spirit becomes with the Divine Source of Everything.

Breaking through to a life of Truth, Beauty, and Good isn't always straightforward or easy. That's why I support people through self-mastery coaching.

There’s something magical - and transformational - in participating in intentional conversation with someone listening to us cleanly. They hear the things behind what we’re saying. They ask the kinds of questions that bring to the surface those underlying and covered up truths that we’ve become so used to ignoring. They see the light peeking out from behind the tape, even when we’ve trained ourselves not to notice any longer.

Peel the tape off. Respond to the indicator lights. Live in alignment, in harmony, in integrity.

No, this doesn't mean stress out and worry about getting it right. It means take intentional action in ways that honor the Divine Spark within you.

I promise, it won't hurt, and it may just relieve a bit of your suffering.

With Love. 🙏❤️
