Healing Arts and Pagan Studies – Accept Your Humanness
We all need affection, support, encouragement, food, clothing, shelter. When our needs are being met, we feel safe enough to express our feelings. But when our needs aren’t met, or we deny our needs, we don’t feel safe enough to express our feelings. We shut down.
To grow, we must begin to accept our humanness. The more we own up to who we are–with humility and acceptance–the stronger we become. Each time we ask for what we need, we sink our roots deeper and wider. Every time we express our feelings, honestly and directly, we grow in love.
To grow spiritually, we need to be rooted in our humanness. Like the branches of a tree, our spirit seeks the light and feeds our roots, our humanness. Our roots send up nourishment and strength and feed our spirit.
I imagine that I am a tree. Down through the base of the spine I send my roots deep and wide into the earth. I send my branches to the sky. I am a growing, breathing, vital, spiritual human being.
Have a wonderful day!
