This weekend has been hard for me. I was triggered and allowed myself to get sucked in to the spin cycle of emotions and have spent the last couple days numbing out. Thanks to a walk with one of my souls sisters (💜@aimee💜) I was able to speak my truth, recognize what was happening and where it was coming from and gave myself grace. Then this article came to me via someone Facebook post and I read it and it literally made me cry. I am in the messy middle and something amazing is coming but for now it’s terrible and wonderful and awful and scary. I am grateful that all of you are here holding space and bearing witness and allowing me a safe place to be vulnerable! 💗🦋💗

Real Awakenings are Not Elegant—they are Messy, Ugly, Shattered & Raw.

I'll hold all the space you need! 😁

Also Pura Vida! It means pure life/simple life...the Costa Rican Aloha! The bracelets not only are the mantra representation but the brand is also a reminder.

❤️❤️❤️❤️ to you and all sisters who may need a little extra.

So much this! Oh how ugly and uncomfortable it can feel. Someone once told me to look at it like a broken glass window. We are on one side and on the other side is this beautiful life we desire to have. We have to go through the broken glass to get to the other side. That’s the messy, scary, terrible part, it’s going to hurt like hell. But like you said something amazing is coming, Once you get through that broken glass. I love this Thea and can relate to it on so many levels. That broken window can be my worst nightmare but oh when I awaken and arrive on this other side how beautiful and peaceful and exciting I know it will be. Progress not perfection. Hang in there. Glad you have a solid support system. Thank you for sharing this. I needed it HUGE!

Breaking through old beliefs and patterns take courage, rawness and vulnerability. It is messy and can seem ugly but when we stand finally and fully in our true selves! Oh the Beauty and Oh the Power! Keep at it, your posse is always rooting for you and in the mud with you. ❤️

Love this, @thearee. Awakening is not a glamorous process, nor for the faint of heart! The messy middle will shift and you are right on the verge🧡🙏 Thank you for sharing this with us all! XO
