YES! Intimacy. Oh boy does intimacy freak some people out. The idea of undressing who you are and standing naked in the crowd, transparent in who you are can really intimidate some people. But it’s soooo necessary, especially when it pertains to the materialization of our dreams, goals and plans.
Intimacy or better said IN-TO-ME-YOU-SEE is the necessary ingredient to have anything happen in this world and most importantly in your life.
Let’s break this down into digestible sections so you understand what intimacy really means and how it plays a huge role in manifesting your dreams and creating your greatest year ever.
So what is intimacy, really?
One of webster’s definition is: close familiarity or friendship; closeness.
|closeness, togetherness, affinity, rapport, attachment, familiarity, friendliness, friendship, amity, affection, warmth, confidence;|
Intimacy is a deep connection, an ability to be in relationship with people in such a way that you share who you are…
We fear intimacy because we fear being judged, hurt, rejected, abandoned… The list goes on and on. But I have something to share with you…
The only reason you were created was to love and be loved. And that can only exist when we are in relationship with SELF. With who we really are. When we let go of the mask and start seeing ourselves in others.
Intimacy goes hand in hand with vulnerability. It’s not about sex or being romantic. Intimacy is about sharing yourself with an open heart. Trusting that people will see you as you are and love your imperfections just because they make you who you are.
We are ALL perfectly in process. Majestics works in progress.
But we hide these imperfections, we create masks to hide our wounds… we become masters at pretending. Some believing that they’re un-loveable, some believing they’re not worthy… and yet those thoughts had nothing to do with who we really are.
Some were passed on, some were taught. Some were learned but inevitable the greatest magic happens when we dive into our vulnerability. Diving into sharing ourselves, being willing to have our hearts broken because the possibility of that one moment could literally rewrite ages of fears, years of hiding and pretending.
Being willing to be seen for all that we are and for all that we’re not. Being willing to share ourselves, to be in relationship with people.
Every lesson shared shares the lesson.
From the moment we are born we are in communion with people… A newborn doesn’t survive if its not held. Some of our deepest wounds come from the stories we hold about our parents or stories that occurred throughout our childhood.
Most of our healing and epiphanies come from sharing, from listening, from asking.
We were designed to be in tribes since the moment we were born.
It’s time to allow yourself to be seen. To share who you are and to also embrace others as who they are. Imagine creating such a safe space that people feel the gift to be who they truly are.
All judgments come from judging the person in the mirror. And then we become master judgers by extending all of our insecurities, expectations and attachments to everyone we see.
So to reverse all this is easy but tricky. The key is to see yourself in everyone you meet. To see their joy as if it was your joy. To see their sadness as if it was your sadness.
To share yourself in a way that the other person knows how important they are to you.
THAT’S HOW WE CREATE.
That’s how the soil, sun, water and seed create the flower and each blade of grass, that’s how the ocean and sand create together, that’s how the trees, water and sun create the air we breath…
When we own who we are and are willing to share ALL OF US.
The magic of creation happens when we share and grow together. When we dive into our vulnerability and invite IN-TO-ME-SEE. When we invite the other to see all of us, to see our wholeness is when we create space for what’s possible.
