I have just enrolled in Hannah Marcotti's Community Grace program and already on prompt day #3 I'm being invited to act in some uncomfortable places. Places of validation, compliments, and being seen as I want to be seen. Funny, isn't it that I desire and crave these things yet struggle to fully receive them when they come my way. The prompt today was to go back through my community threads, testimonials, and loving texts and pull out the sayings of others about me. For me, going public with these affirmations in this way is my recovery of sorts...a holding myself to the truth of who I am and how I'm seen...needing to own that I am in fact seen for the very way I want to be seen. I am in fact creating the sacred spaces I want to be in for my own wholeness and soul crafting. It's strangling to me to continue avoiding the truths of how I'm seen and held by others. This practice today has shown me how in fact, I'm also insulting these beautiful beings who have shown up to show me how I show up. And for that, I am ready to say “I'm sorry”. I am. You deserve the gift of of your love being received. So with that in my heart, I am receiving your genuine validation and I'm so grateful for how you have showed me...me. I love you all.

”the most safe and loving space I've ever been in” ”this has been life changing” “no magic like this could happen with out Nissa” “Nissa takes her work seriously, but doesn't take herself seriously” “working with Nissa is an experience in partnership” “Deep, loamy soul work. A safe, secure space to be and let go, to share with abandon without judgment or shame “ “showing me new ways of relating to myself “ “Nissa cultivates the individual in you “ “Her straight talk and transparency are refreshing “ “Thank you Nissa for new tools and ways of seeing life “ “This is some really good medicine here “ “profound healer” “she holds powerful circles”

“you are a perfect balance of sensitive and bad ass” “you are integrity” “your ability to show them how to be vulnerable gives them permission to go where they wouldn't go without you” “do you see NOW how valuable you are”

“I just hope they find value for themselves in what I offer” “oh, please...let there be magic” “I'm doing this so I can be me, and hopefully inspire someone to be them”

“ya know what? I really like you” “thank you, Miss Magicpants” “I feel alive when I talk with you” “So very grateful to walk this path with such a beautiful soul “ “Just... I totally you! Balm for the heart today... “ “You go so deep and true “ “The power you spark in others is unparalleled by anything else I have experienced “ “I feel so seen, so understood, heard, experienced, appreciated, loved up, supported, honored, I am so in love with the world you step up to create!!! So inspired! “ “Why would I choose to travel 2400 miles to sit in a circle with women I've never met? To do work that is deep, rich + authentic. - I am forever changed + so grateful I listened + answered the call. “ “I love your willingness to be so open and honest “

 

And so it is! The beautiful beings are honored fully for their loving expressions. I hear you. See your love. Accept your love. And I love you in return. In addition, I highly recommend anyone needing to see the truth of who they are...simply listen to the love being sent your way, then let it in. It will change you. Blessed be.
