[This is part of my monthly reading for myself, that I felt I had to share. It ties in so much with the energy of this moon. Hope it helps you. ❤️🌑🦀] Strength in vulnerability, that is your natural state. Allowing yourself to be open and gentle and in that natural state is your power, and it's what allows you to connect with other people and help them heal. You don't have to "master" yourself by tamping down your emotions to get there, just take a minute to get calm and centered, and you can tap into that state any time. You can just be in the flow of it.
Vulnerability is a powerful form of self care. It's saying, I accept myself completely, and there is no possible reaction anyone else could have that would shake my love for myself. I trust myself so completely that I don't need to seek outside validation, I simply offer what I have. When you release your expectations for any particular outcome, you allow yourself to say yes, take chances, make mistakes. You do something because it feels in alignment for you, not because you're trying to control circumstances or people.
Vulnerability doesn't mean that other people will be able to hurt you or manipulate you. In fact, it makes you pretty much immune to bullshit because you're putting your whole self out there, with no shame or vanity for anyone to play on. Rather than opening yourself to harm, you'll be opening the way for other people to find their own way to healing. People will think, why is she happy and calm and unfuckwithable? How do I get that way, too? And after all, aren't you this way because you saw someone else's happy, calm, aligned example, and thought, I want to live that way, too? It's possible for everyone. This is our natural state.
