Have you ever felt like you have been holding back a part of your true self to all of your friends and family? Have you felt like you haven’t been able to be authentic to who you really are because of fear of judgment? Have you ever felt that you couldn’t even truly admit to yourself who you really are because it’s just too hard to deal with the reactions of others? I have. I know many of us have things about ourselves that we feel we have to hide. I see so many in my spiritual community who are out and proud of their psychic abilities, and I used to be so envious. I am not comparing, but I also see so many of my Gay friends who have come out of the closet and they have all been such an inspiration for me to just be who I AM. I feel like I have had to drag myself out of the “psychic closet” quite a few times over the past decade.
The first time was when I actually admitted to a few friends that I knew I had abilities, even though I didn’t know how to exactly describe them at the time. I was so lucky as my friends were, and are very like-minded and they actually helped me to realize what was going on with me. The next time was when I actually started my website and my Facebook business page. That was a big one for me as I was really putting myself out there for ALL to see. At that same time, I also told my parents about who I really was and what I was drawn to do with my life. I was so lucky as my parents have always been so open-minded in general and of course, they showed their support and love of who I am.
I most recently have found a lot of my biological family. I am adopted and have been looking for my birth parents for years. I was lucky enough to come in contact with so many members of my biological family as of late. As you can imagine though, that brings about a whole new family who I had to “come out” too! Now imagine having your biological father and other family members (some being staunch Catholics) finding out that I am…Gasp! A psychic!! That was a fun conversation for sure lol! I have been so blessed with so many in my life who support and love me even if I am not exactly what they expect from what they have seen on the surface. I have found that those who are meant to be in my life will be…no matter what.
So that brings us to the point of this whole blog! I was lucky enough to have support when I did come out with my true authentic self. That doesn’t mean that I didn’t lose people in the process, but the support I did receive made it easier for me to gain the strength to admit not only to others but to myself as to who I really am. I also have been incredibly blessed with finding a community of fellow lightworkers and psychics who made the process an educational and loving one as well. When you have people, whether it be friends, a mentor, like-minded co-workers, whoevever…that you can go to for support, that is so important. I encourage everyone and anyone who is on this journey to find local communities, or communities online where you can connect and receive support. All that really matters at the end of the day is that you are true to yourself. You will get some people who will not be supportive, but if you are secure in who you are you will attract the people into your life that will support you. You will attract the people who will help you to change and evolve as the spiritual being that you are. You will receive everything you need in order to follow your true path, your true calling. Don’t be afraid of that, embrace it and love every last part of yourself. That’s all that really matters isn’t it?
