Sheila Na Gig

Sheila Na Gig is back. I liked the last message that she gave us so well that I copied for this time around as well. Enjoy your week!


 

Sheila Na Gig says to open up and expose your complete self to the world. Allow others to see what and who you are and do so happily. The beauty within is meant for all to see and your challenge this week is to show it proudly, without reservations. Do it with a smile, stretching your welcome mat to those who haven’t had the chance to see can be a bit scary at first. Especially when doing it with complete abandon of how you may be perceived. Being you is enough here. In fact it is extraordinary and in showing yourself at every turn you will find that you enjoy the freedom it allows and the progress it creates. So for this week welcome all in who cross your path, for a glimpse or an in depth view of all that you are, including hopes, dreams, visions, as well as what is already… the extraordinary you.

Gloria ... In doing what Sheila Na Gig encourages us to do I'm most often met with a stony silence. I first interpreted this to mean I was being offensive, but have come to realize people just aren't used to openness. It is certainly not encouraged by our society, so most people are taken aback by blatant authenticity and honesty. But ... I've ignored those reactions and have become more comfortable with it. It feels too good to back off, and I think there just might be some appreciation under those blank reactions by others. John

Hi John
Sounds like you are having a bit of fun with this! I have been getting confirmation in regards to being open over and over again from the time Shiela Na Gig came up. I am being encouraged to open up in many ways. So, I have been catching myself and when I would normally clam up I have begun to speak. It's refreshing and freeing. So, far I haven't reached the blank stare stage but I hope to catch up with you at some point. Thanks for sharing your experience with me. It helps to know that others feel good from practicing these challenges. Gloria
