Are You Rooted in Fear?
Tuesday at 2:56 pm
Planted in fear. Your roots now buried deep with years of toxic absorption. There has been growth because that is what happens with time. On the surface you have sprouted. You have expanded your branches and have formed leaves. But below the surface your roots multiple in search for something new.
The uptake of dysfunction and pain over the years has created deficiencies. The trunk of your existence is weathered. Your leaves left unpruned now bear weight on your branches. The tree needs to be stripped bare to see and appreciate the sacrifices it took to survive. To uncover the beauty in its imperfections.
The fear kept you small. It stole your energy. That same energy that was meant for your branches to stretch to new heights. Upward in strength as you reach for the sun, shining in your light. The flow that keeps you nourished on cloudy days. The flow that keeps you hydrated during a drought.
But what if you were to dig out you roots and replant them? What would that look like to you? And in this process you learn healthy ways for your roots to reach new depths allowing your soul to feel anchored. The replanted roots now covered and protected by radical love and acceptance. Roots that thrive with nutrients of self-love and healing. Abundant rays of gratitude shine upon you. And consistent watering from people that fully support you.
Fear kept you surviving. And sometimes turning turbulent weather survival is what it takes. And that is okay. But you are meant for more than survival. You are vital. You are life. You are an essential part of this ecosystem of humanity. Do not minimize the importance, power, and gifts that are ingrained in the inner barks of your soul.
As you grow new leaves, you are able to let go of the ones that no longer serve you. You do not need to hide. You do not need to pretend. Let the parts of your soul you kept from this world be exposed.
