As women we feel we have so many responsibilities and roles to honour
When we step into our Goddess self we can strip the Roles away. A goddess has the ability to become who she is supposed to be! Strong beings of love light and liberation!
The more we walk our true path it becomes paved with love light and liberation! The goddess way
Don’t listen to what society and people expects from you Listen to your soul calling!
Here is a story of Penelope (based on real story name is changed to respect identity)
Penelope is a 50+ women has worked and lived most of her life in Spain and built a successful business and a happy life her and her dog (her husband passed away a few years ago)
Penelope is from England and has travelled home throughout her time in Spain to spend time with her sister and mum.
During the past couple of years her mothers health has deteriorated and her sister has become her mums carer. Penelope has visited her mum as much as she could which has obviously been more challenging the past couple of years!
Unfortunately Penelope’s sister has recently been diagnosed with MS and this week had to have an operation on her hand so can not longer look after her mother. It’s is now Penelope’s turn to take over…….Or is it!
When I spoke to Penelope she was scared to go back to England and leave her life in Spain behind especially her dog. Penelope was scared of the loneliness as her mother is now barely responsive.
My Friend is very active and loves the sunshine and the sea and it was at the beach I last saw her. Penelope was deliberating going back to England!
She did not want to but she felt she had to!
How many times have you been in a situation of not wanting to do something but felt you had to ?
What would you do in the situation?
Duty May tell us we have to rush and be somewhere but love will ask us first, can you do this? Is this what is right for me right now? what will fuel my soul and prevent regret later.
Because ultimately if you are fulfilling a role out of duty and not out of love. You may well be, not only doing what you don’t want to, but also not what is best for a person.
When you reflect on what is right for you, you have the ability to show up with love and not resentment.
I haven’t seen Penelope since our conversation and I don’t know if she went out of love or duty or whether she went at all!
When the ego presents the judge: The judge is not the true you. The Judge is who society told you, you should be.
It is so easy to say I would do this and would never do that……..but the truth is you never know what you would do until you are in that situation.
Duty is related to obligation and being a chore neither reflects fulfilment, happiness or love
My guidance would be:Maybe instead of feeling a duty to a moral role that society has led us towards maybe we should be dutiful in the love for ourselves. In love all the answers lie!
Duty May be taking away the light away for not just you but the person you feel duty for.
If you can’t give with love you may feel resentful
Feeling resentful is not good for you or the person you are dutiful towards. And who is to say, you are the person to save the day!
By you doing your role resentfully you may be preventing some one else to come in with love. That is the ego again if I am not there the world will fall apart…………..not necessarily.
Of course in Penelope’s case her outreach is needed, however there maybe other ways for her to outreach with love.
For example she could go back to England and employ a carer or recruit a friend to help her. Or she could simply stay in Spain. If Penelope has reflected upon it mindfully this might be the right decision for her? and who is any body to judge?
We all walk our paths and it is magical when they can come together with love!
But I suspect if you are feeling resentful over a situation right now you are doing it through duty not love?
If you feel this is the case for you, reflect on it mindfully maybe take a journey to your muladhara chakra (the first of our 7 chakras)
The Muladhara Chakra is the foundation of the physical structure of the body.
It is located at the base of the spine.
A balanced Muladhara Chakra presents stability, confidence, energy, and strength. This is the place where your connection with family and friends is stored, so is an amazing place for you to explore to release resentment and duty!
To step out of duty and into love why not take my muladhara class
I will see you there! and please do comment below lets create a goddess conversation
