Especially the most raw or sensual.
My urge is to hide my body from you
Especially the most naked or vulnerable.
I teach that our naked bodies are innocent (not innately sexual unless YOU choose to to be), yet sometimes I OBSESS over posting a picture that shows you my skin.
Afraid of what it means to you. Afraid of what I’m inviting. Afraid that it’s too naked, that it will be interpreted as sexual. That people will think I want a certain type of attention.
My urge is to never post a picture of my face again. Other faces, other people. But I urge to hide safetly in shadows.
The truth is I want to use my body as art and showing more of myself to you terrifies me. Whether that's my skin, my mind, my experience.
But that terror changed my life.
Sharing more of myself with you has built me a life of freedom, power, impact, service, poetry, art, money, purpose, abundance.
In the last year I’ve made more money than I did in my entire advertising career. More than in my career in-
✨ working as a live in personal coach
✨ as a writer and researcher for a sex doctor
✨ in a hospital
I share this because I want to reflect to you (by ACTUALLY living it everyday) that you can live a life that challenges you AND feels like you're getting paid to live out your dreams and grow in all the ways you’ve ever wanted to.
It will still challenge you, but there’s a difference between burn out and expansion.
I don't care how complex or how enormous your dreams....
I've heard the challenges & excuses and I can still confidently say that you are worthy of the life you want and that as long as you don’t give up, you can create it.
So for the rest of the week I’ll be posting the poetry I’ve hidden. With pictures that send ripples of apprehension all throughout my skin and body.
I do it to mirror that you can be all of you, share all of you, and live the life you want, make the money you want.
I want to be living proof that you can impact the world just by sharing more of yourself in every way 🖤
