Today it’s my pleasure top introduce you to the fabulous Lisa Fitzpatrick. Lisa shares her wisdom with us today in The 3 Veils That Block Your Feminine Purpose.
Have you ever felt that you have an important purpose in life but things keep getting in the way?
As women, one of our biggest challenges can be unveiling our true self so that we can be fully expressed in the world. It can be incredibly painful to allow ourselves to be revealed for who we are and yet it is our ability to be vulnerable that makes us truly feminine. It’s incredible how skillful we can become at immersing ourselves in the busy-work of household chores and business, caring for our families and being engaged relationships with our friends. These things are all necessary aspects of being women living rich, full lives but can also serve as potent distractions which lead us away from the unique contribution within us which is yearning to come forth and be expressed in the world.
At the heart of every goddess is a unique and extraordinary contribution to the world. However, unveiling this contribution requires us to be honest about how and where we are hiding out. It’s easy to make the excuses of ‘I’ll wait until the kids grow up’ and ‘my husband needs me’. It takes so much courage to take 100% responsibility and truly embrace and live your purpose here and now.
There are three veils that prevent us from being all that we are capable of becoming in this lifetime:
The veil of unbelonging: deep at our core is a primitive response to our community which fears ‘if I speak up or do something different to what’s expected of me then I might be rejected.’ This is a natural response which has been part of our evolution as humans who are interdependent on one another and our tribe to survive. The ironic thing is that well-behaved women seldom make history. What if the very purpose of your life is to speak out against the status quo and be a force for change? Your natural leadership as a woman requires you to be at the frontier of new ways of being. When you remove the veil of unbelonging you become a fearless inspiration to others. Having the courage to not belong to the herd can be an empowering leadership position, especially if you are being true to your heart’s calling.
The veil of unworthiness: do you have a deep, bold and juicy desire that almost feels too extraordinary to even be spoken? Perhaps you’ve tucked this dream inside your heart, buried under the armour of a belief that it’s just not possible for you to have what you want. Look more closely and the veil of unworthiness may well be present. This veil shows up in our beliefs such as ‘I’ll fail again’ and ‘I need to do more study’. This is the veil that has us studying yet another degree, attending another workshop and being the eternal student because we simply can’t own our expertise in an area, or we don’t believe we can fully serve another. Removing the veil of unworthiness unleashes the feminine force within which is gracefully able to receive more abundance for simply being herself. The irony is, that being a fully unleashed feminine force is a potent position
The veil of unloveability: do you believe in love? Do you love yourself? The guiding force within our hearts is love. The veil of unloveability shows up in our commitment to ourselves. As goddesses, our self care is an essential act of self love. This includes the commitment to our mission no matter what: as an act of love and service to our own soul’s journey. The veilof unloveability shows up every time we give ourselves away for free (unless it is a true act of giving unconditionally) or placing ourselves in complete overwhelm. Truly nourishing yourself means identifying the things that you love and enjoy and doing more of them. Taking a bath, taking the dog for a walk, pruning your garden and buying yourself a bunch of your favourite flowers to celebrate yourself are all acts of self love. The feminine goddess energy is a receiving, opening and all-embracing energy. Remove the veil of unloveability to truly receive all the goodness that life has for you which in turn, energises you to carry out the amazing work you were put here to do.
The goddess living in the light, unveiled, is an extraordinary, unique beauty to behold inside and out. You belong, you are worthy and you are loved. Now go and unwrap the gift inside you.
