After some long and careful consideration, I have decided to stop blogging here. It’s time to let go and make way for something fresh and new.
The initial intention behind the creation of True Shining Self was to document my healing journey, for my writing to help me express my experience and perhaps inspire one or two other people with what I was learning.
|My journey started here in 2012:|
It’s been a beautiful journey and I can now look back in gratitude for the journey I’ve been on. However, I no longer need to focus on healing. I feel whole and complete, I know more about who I am in truth and feel strong in self. Each day I open more to my true shining self. That essence was hidden before you see, hidden behind a lot of fear. And I want to follow curiosity now, rather then fear. I want to play and roam, discover what I’m capable of, reach for the stars.
I would have liked to have continued documenting that journey here, I tried, believe me. But I’ve learned that intention setting is incredibly powerful. My intention for this to be a healing blog has stood strong and no matter how often I have tried to move forward believing my healing focus was over and to try and shift that energy, I always managed to find something to heal. Because that’s what the blog was set up to do – heal, learn, document, share. And repeat.
This blog has served its purpose. It’s helped me navigate through an intense transformation period of my life and I feel its helped a few others too.
Now its time to let go. So I can create a new path. With a new intention (this time I’m going for fun and play!). A fresh new chapter.
What’s next? I don’t know. I have to trust the feeling that this is complete and that new inspiration and opportunity will open up.
Staying in something when its over
Naturally though, there has been a lot of fear. I had a whole future planned in my head linked to this and to let all of that go is pretty tough. This blog releasing process has been like a relationship breakup. You know its over but you hang in there because its comfortable and its what you know. And from experience with relationship breakups, quitting jobs and moving house – historically, I’ve stayed there longer than my intuition was telling me and other people have had to make the decisions for me. I’m claiming my power this time and honouring my intuition. It’s over. Time to move on and explore new things. I don’t know what’s in store but I trust that the next adventure is within reach.
I’m giving you a little nudge that if you’re holding onto something or staying in a situation when you know its over – you might think you’re comfortable and happy, but you’re not. Reclaim your power. Make a change.
I would like to say a huge thank you to those of you who have followed my journey over these past few years. So much gratitude for being here. Your presence has helped me have the courage to keep going. The effort has been worth it. Thank you.
Gosh, I wish I could talk to myself when I started this blog and say: Follow your heart, do what feels right for you, don’t worry about what other people think, enjoy it – and chill the fuck out! Ha ha! It’ll be what its meant to be.
I’m off now with a new intention of following joy. If you want to stay in touch, add your email below and I’ll be sure to contact you if/when I start something new. Bye for now. Love Amy ♥
