Permission to Be Soundful II: Calling It In - Let's Disappoint, Shall We?

Updated: Jan 23

What's all this femi/manifestation stuff anyway?!

The elders from many traditions teach us to observe the natural cycles of life, to flow, to accept what is...essentially to honor life as it happens.

Yet, we have these longings to bring forth that which is burning within us. Sometimes in the process, we can become attached to the outcome, and it can be disappointing if it does not turn out. That's so human.

I am a master at disappointment. Both feeling it and causing it.

One the one hand, the fact that I long for something is beautiful, and is a reflection of my spark of life! The fact that I can disappoint is a reflection of my commitment to my own integrity.

The pain of feeling disappointment around others or myself burns and it is a constant lesson in releasing attachment. No one has to meet our needs.

The absolutely delightful and genuine [Brené Brown]( is fond of sharing her transformation around the inner critic when she encountered Theodore Roosevelt's speech The Man In the Arena:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Mic drop.

That's it beauties. Dare to dream, to write it down, to long, to care, to move it and sing it into being.

We'll take care of the process through song ;-)

See you soon!
