Revealing Thriving in Community


This article includes: Thriving exploration, tips to bring you into a thriving reality, and vlog movement is medicine

Breath love into your heart

Open your compassionate eyes and caring hands with others

listen with your ears expanding  into wide open vulnerable places

palms reveal stories of courage, faith, suffering, perfect storms, and darkeness

Bridging  together generations, differences, fear, duality, indigenous tribe

prayer with love,  holding ancestor honor

suddenly inside me weaving with my life journey

a satellite of soul stars are a connecting into a web of peace

finally we found this place and eachother

rising intimate community    ~     breaking old resentment walls down

diving into an infinite pool of forgiveness

waking up my hearts potential to heal darkness inside my soul

revealing authentic weakness transforming into empowered light

collective courageous hearts hold painful stories like angel winged songs

timeless space hold us weeping for a place where you are honored fully

surrender into a field of support diving deep into mother earths sea of yes

tangible magic matrix of conscious acceptance vibrating through the circle of

vibrant angels that will forever be inside me changing the world

this is a breath of thriving I desire to touch everyday now

softly I thank you, Polly and your tribe for bringing this sacred circle together and will hold the healing power in my heart~

This is a poem of a sacred circle I am blessed to witness and be apart of this past weekend that catapulted my perspective on defining thriving. In the past thriving was about me.  A self  journey of  health and wellness.  Choosing to participate in activities in life that impacted my well being.  How these choices are impacting my internal being and outer life. I still believe this a significant part of living a thriving life but there is something else that is key.

There is a crucial layer that I discovered over the weekend being in a group session lead by a women from an indigenous tribe telling real stories. I had the honor to participate in listening, receiving powerful healing, and also witnessing sharing stories that changed my life in a way I could never of discovered alone.  I realized for the first time in this group that surrendering into community in the unknown, caring for others, is where real thriving begins to blossom inside me. Finding a conscious community and safe place to reveal authentic pearl stories, listen to vulnerable stories of truth,  can be the deepest invitation in your being to feel alive. When cracking open a story that was a perfect storm of challenges there is always ways others can dissolve the crazy and increase relating that feels more expansive and good to share. This relating support increases value in these challenging times into a place where asking for help is courageous and empowering.

Lets liberate more truth telling to each other!! I feel it begins with creating a new story around struggle and difficult times. Going from, “I must keep my struggles to myself to deal with because others will think I do not have my life together”. Lets let go of that and liberate a new story: “I am going to share these struggling times to my community and this will offer healing, hope, and confidants inside me and for others too.”  Lets be coming from this place of honesty more often or how about all the time. I invite you to reveal what is really going on inside you with others and that is where a deeper intimacy of relationships can be born. This to me is thriving.
