You’ve had those moments...the big ahas.
The intense grace.
The healing where the skies part and things look like they are shifting. Finally.
And for this nice chunk of time, things are good.
Until they aren’t.
You wonder why. You wonder what you did wrong.
You wonder how you can get back to what was.
You may try. Flail. Scream. And fret. Desperate to get back. To go back. To make it how it used to be.
But you can’t.
The big changes that happened, whatever they were...they weren’t rooted.
They were being fed by the same stories, the same beliefs you have carried with you for ages.
The patterns may have had that sudden transformation, but what fueled them remained the same.
So, eventually, they curled back in on themselves...sliding back into the same old grooves you knew all too well.
You don’t get to go back.
That’s not the point.
The point is to do the work of the roots.
The point is to use the moment of grace as a guide.
To see what is in the way. To see what, in your roots, needs to be untangled. Destroyed. And replanted.
So that you know who you are. So that you live in your power.
And so that what you create is fueled by Truth.
Do the work.
Go to the Roots...then rise.
Shame roots deep.
Left unchecked it becomes what feeds us. What fuels us.
Deeper than that...it becomes what we pass on to the generations ahead.
Deeper still...is what we receive from generations past.
Seeds of shame lay in our ancestral lineage.
This is the shame that our grandparents felt. That their grandparents felt. Any beyond.
This is the shame they were saddled with. That shame that was twisted around them.
Some for mistakes made. Some for simply being.
And it is passed on. Passed down.
The shame...the invitation of it unmet...writhes and screams at is moves from life to life.
Whispering that we are not enough. That we must hide. That we must quit and run and prove and die.
When we, here and now, are willing to address the shame...healing happens.
We must bring the shame out from depths.
Acknowledge its roots.
Love its tender fears.
And destroy the structures that have kept you...and all those who held it before you...stuck.
Because shame roots deeap.
And our Truth Roots deeper.
