So I’m curious – do you ever feel like you need to keep your inner woo woo hidden? Whether it’s in your biz, your profession or even your personal life, do you find yourself holding back on showing your spiritual or woo woo side because people might think you are a little cuckoo?
Of course I am saying this using the lightness of slang words. However, I’m wondering how common it is to live this way – or maybe it is just me?
I really can’t be the only one that feels that if I allow my freak flag to fly in front of my closest friends or colleagues that people might laugh in my face, can I?
I can’t be the only one that thinks everyone that is super close to me will run the other way if I come out of the spirituality closet, can I?
It’s not like I’m brand new to woo woo. It’s been a part of my life for about 10 years now. Actually, it all started when I was in pharmaceutical sales – talk about a huge inner conflict. I mean I was in this corporate world, where everything was a combination of science and cut throat sales. And here I was moving towards spirituality and woo woo.
To say there was turmoil on my end would be an understatement.
So when the time came and the company downsized, I was finally free to fully embrace my spirituality and shout it from the roof tops. However, it sounded all fine and dandy – but many years later I still find myself holding back.
Sure I’ve come a long way – I mean a loooooonnnnnngggggg way. However, there is still work to be done. I know that I’ve only tapped the surface of my inner woo woo. And I’m excited to explore what happens when I dig deeper – and more importantly allow myself to dig deeper.
So my question for you to ponder is – do you hold back from sharing all of you and who you are with those that surround you? Do you find that you don’t want to look weak or cuckoo if people get a glimpse of the real you?
If you are answering yes to either of these questions, what would it be like if you let down your guard just a little? What would it be like to know that you are not alone, that you have support?
The key to connection and relationships – whether personal or business – is realness.
That doesn’t mean we need to agree with one another. It means we need to feel Connected. Heard. Respected.
And if the people that are the closest to you can’t offer those and allow you to be you – maybe it is time to look at who you surround yourself with on a regular basis.
Just some things to ponder on this blustery winter day in PA.
Thoughts? Are you out of the spirituality closet? Do you feel like you have a foot in two different worlds?
