Recently I came out of the closet....no not in that way.....my "closet" was that I am a psychic. A fact that I held close to my heart and one which only a few very close friends and my family knew about me.
In fact a good friend said to me "So your a psychic, how did I miss that?". She missed it because it was a part of me that I kept hidden in fear of judgement and retribution of what others might say about me.
This fear of rejection was so strong that it caused me to disown a part of my own soul and keep hidden a subject which I am deeply passionate about. How crazy is that?
In order not to be rejected or judged I remained in a corporate role so when people asked "what do you do?" I could be accepted by telling them I was an operations manager rather than judged if I told them I was a psychic.
Though, only as the Universe can, situations and people were manoeuvred to undermine my crazy notion where I found myself being judged, criticised and rejected in my "socially acceptable" management role.
This led me to a journey of discovery where I found myself and reclaimed my disowned parts, embracing who I am as well as being open about it.
Soon after I came out (as a psychic), I was walking at Coogee beach and realised how authentically blissful I felt. Why? because now I was living in alignment with my true self, my whole self. I made a choice no longer to give power to the fear of what other people would think.
Finally, I live my life without shackles, I am free to be me. I am happy to say I am a psychic who works with authenticity & integrity and I accept this as the gift that God/Universe intended for me.
I know that no matter what I do in life, there are people who will want to bring me down, who will want to judge me and who will not understand me. In knowing this I can therefore chose not to own it.
A recent posting by Carolyn Myss read:
"Fate is how your life unfolds when you let fear determine your choices. A path of destiny reveals itself to you however when you confront your fear and make conscious choices"
I understand why people stay inside their closet and keep aspects of themselves close to their heart.....and I believe it is a brave person who makes the choice to live openly and authentically.
