"I became aware that whenever I'd trusted my truth
as a woman
and was loyal to it, it had become like a thread in my fingers,
unwinding, guiding, taking me where I needed to go.
When I denied it and refused to trust,
refused to pick up the thread, I became
lost, afraid, off-center.
The way to find your thread again is to be still and remember who you are,
to listen to your heart, your inner wisdom, as deeply as you can
and then give yourself permission to follow it.
If you can't give yourself this permission, then find someone who can."
- Sue Monk Kidd
You're making a new life for yourself.
You're learning to find
your core self,
your seat of intuition,
your inner knowing
....and listen to it.
Not: listen to obey, to submit, or to conform - like you were taught.
This time the listening is different.
It's being still to remember who you are
(not to know who god is,
stepping outside yourself and dismissing yourself
in the process)
You are being still to remember who you are -
to release and to reclaim,
to reconnect to
It's expansive, freeing,
earthing and unearthing,
learning and unlearning,
