For any of you on a personal growth path, you know it can be hard enough to sit with uncomfortable emotions, but the thought of sitting with that discomfort ALONE can sometimes drive us AWAY from the very baggage that is calling us to heal.
That’s why I say that everyone needs a Julia. I have a dear friend with whom I speak practically every day. We talk about everything from spirituality to shopping! She is my “go to” person when I’m “triggered” in my life. She’s everything from my “parenting coach” to my “clothing coach”. She probably knows some of my issues better than I do.
She is able to put on her “listening cap”. She listens with such compassion, patience, acceptance and equanimity …. over and over and … over again! She doesn’t feel the need to “fix me” or to fix “it” for me. She simply listens. And I am the same for her.
Now, Life is pretty wise because in order for someone to put on their listening cap, you have to be willing to share yourself deeply and vulnerably. You have to be willing to “get naked”, as I like to say. You have to be willing to bare your Soul, to show them the parts of yourself that you’d rather hide and keep in the darkest of closets … behind the shoes 🙂
There’s something about cultivating a deeper friendship with someone. The little by little, risk after risk, of letting someone in that is so healing. Especially as women, who are taught to do everything for ourselves, to be all things for all people and to do everything PERFECTLY, it can be especially challenging to begin to truly let others into those tender, hurting places in our hearts.
There’s something exquisite about holding a space for each other … woman for woman.
Find someone “worthy” of holding your heart. Find someone trustworthy with it. Find someone “safe”. Venture out. Open up. Risk.
Find your Julia 🙂
This is why I’ve started an on line, membership community of Julia’s! It’s an on line support community by women, for women called LUMINOUS! That we may all live our most LUMINOUS LIVES! I’ve started it with my dear sister friends, Dr Shefali Tsabary (New York Times Best Selling Author of “The Conscious Parent” and “The Awakened Family”) and Greta Harmon, therapist extraordinaire!
An amazing group of women is already gathering and we’re embarking upon a 14 Day Luminous Cleanse!
