My blogging experience has certainly evolved over the past 12 months. I’m learning so much from sites aimed at assisting memoir writers, which I only recently started to follow.
I certainly didn’t intend for this blog site to be a memoir. But there are times I feel as if I’m writing chapters of my own. And I am simply surrendering to the energy that’s taking a life of its own — so different from what I had originally envisioned.
I’ve been reviewing my life and doing a lot of writing about it. And I’ve been healing so much from it. I’ve been clearing away and peeling away layers of miscreated energies — those that no longer serve me.
I’ve blogged quite extensively, although not without moments of hesitation and uncertainty, about my family of origin experiences, issues and growth opportunities.
I’ve also blogged, although not quite as extensively, but will do in future posts, about what I’m experiencing as I interact with my fellow countrymen — quite a challenge, considering I’m so different from them and so un-Filipino. As I come back to who I truly am, as I come home to the Self, more and more, there’s less and less commonality, if any, that I share with them. It hasn’t been easy. But these are more soul growth opportunities without a doubt.
Being back in my country of origin at this time, during my Chiron Return, and wondering whether I really want to continue residing here (at least most definitely not in Manila), and evaluating what my options are, it most certainly is also giving me a chance to revisit my country of origin-related wounds — how to heal from them, rise above them, and see them and my experiences through a different set of lenses. (A message from Snake which I posted here, and the same message I received from a broken snorkeling mask incident a few months ago, which I also posted here.)
And as I write and share my stories and experiences, my reflections and insights, it is my way to stop hiding. Like my “coming out.” Out of the comfort zone. I am telling the world,
“This is me, all of me. This is who I AM.”
And writing and blogging is my way of declaring and announcing to the Universe,
“I AM shining my Light. Thank you God/Goddess for co-creating with me. Thank you for the human experience. And thank you for the opportunity for me to humanize my Divinity and spiritualize my humanness.”
And I AM trusting and surrendering that my words, my writing, my sharing will be rightfully received by those who resonate with it, without any judgment and only with much love, respect, compassion and appreciation.
And, rather than simply hoping, I AM having this knowing that, as I write these words and hit “publish,” my blogging and making public some of my innermost and most private thoughts and feelings, my insights and reflections — it is my way of sending out the energy to the Universe, proclaiming,
I AM attracting and magnetizing only those who love, honor and respect me. (Revised from Jennifer Hoffman)
“Writing the truth without censorship and being received without judgment offers moments of insight, healing, and forgiveness.”
