Be Who You Are

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter."

- Dr. Seuss

I was just talking to a friend and my husband (separate conversations, by the way) yesterday about sharing who I am with my 'inside circle' of friends.  This girlfriend, who I have known since high school just recently found out "who I am" - spiritually that is.  It is so amazing to have someone in my "inside circle" of friends who knows, and who accepts it, no questions asked.  I guess I've been hiding for many years, afraid of what people would think of me, and afraid of losing close friendships due to judgments about what I do.  Because, you know, people who hear things are crazy, right?  That's what the general public believes.  But, are people who hear voices really crazy?  Or are they just more sensitive than most people, and hearing things from other planes of existence...?  Interesting thought.

I am still me... the same person who I was before you knew that I was intuitive.  I am finally getting to a point where I can't hide much longer.  I am who I am, and those who care enough about preserving a relationship, will let go of their judgments.  I was a skeptic for most of my life {when it came to non-traditional spiritual ideas}, although I had experiences as a child (which were always passed off as a 'dream' or rationalized in some way).  I also had dreams as a child that I believe were much more than just dreams, but that's a whole other story.  ;o)  I even had experiences well into my high school years, that I didn't even realize meant anything, until I look back at them now.  (I saw my deceased Grandma walking from room to room in my old house- but didn't put two and two together at the time.)  I have come to a place of understanding that there is "more than meets the eye" when it comes to this world.

Yes, I have intuitive thoughts and feelings on a regular basis, and I am open to hearing and receiving things that many believe is hooey. Anyone can do this!  We all have the ability.  I am not special in any way, other than the fact that I now use these gifts on a daily basis {for both myself, and others}.

I think I am finally 'okay' allowing the Universe to work things out as far as friendships.  I can not hide my true self forever, for fear of loosing friendships, that perhaps aren't even real to the core anyway.  For, if those same people who are my best friend today think differently of me tomorrow after seeing my Webpage and Facebook Page, then perhaps they weren't truly my friend to begin with...

Thank you Dr. Seuss for such a perfect message for me today. This has been heavy on my heart the last 24 hours, and it is nice to release these feelings of anxiety to the Universe, and allow all the loving and supportive people to continue to flow into my life.
