“Opening yourselves to each other will give you more than closing yourselves off ever could. When you open yourself to another, you are not only granting them access to your deep, dark secrets and everything about yourself that you feel shame and discomfort around, but it also grants you more access.
Your energy will shift as you open yourself and reveal that which you probably wouldn’t talk about on a first date, that which you reserve for your therapists, your close confidants, perhaps your family members. All of it is just an opportunity for you. You are expressions of Source Energy, and Source is All That Is.
So, you must acknowledge these aspects of yourself eventually. Why not do it now when you are able to do so on your own terms, when you are able to decide that you want to shine a light into your dark corridors? This will give you back some of that control that so many of you are seeking.
So I recommend starting this process with those who you feel close enough to have a sense of trust. But I also ask that you reveal those things that you would rather forget about, you would rather not acknowledge, you would rather ‘work on’ so that they can go away.
When you have this openness, this expressiveness, and this honesty, you will receive it as well. It will bring all of you closer together, which will make you realize that there was nothing wrong with you to begin with, that everyone shares your deep, dark secrets in some way, and that they all want so much to express theirs, to relieve themselves of that burden, that heaviness.
Openness can even begin with a complete stranger. The next time someone you don’t know asks how you are doing, be honest. Don’t give them your life story, but let them in, let them know, let it be okay to be right where you are, and don’t try to protect anyone from your darkness.
I grant you access to me, to my energy. And in order for you to receive it, you must be willing to be open, not just the parts you want me to see, but all the parts. You are such lovely beings, and I am so looking forward to feeling more of you.”
