Do you ever feel like you’re hiding your superpowers because you’re afraid other people won’t know how to respond to your gifts? I’ve been there, and I know how terribly painful it can be to choose between being authentic and being rejected!
Some of you already know that I have a potent connection with Fox medicine, and Fox has a lot of wisdom to share about how to quit hiding. (Check out my Fox medicine blog to catch up in case you missed it!)
After all my posts about Fox, that funny video “What does the fox say?” made it’s way to my inbox multiple times. And so, I can’t help but think “What DOES the fox say?” Here’s what I can share, based on my personal initiation with this powerful animal. Maybe it will help you to get over your inhibitions, get your dork on, and start shining like the SuperSTAR you are!
Being a dork = being vulnerable = SUPER SCARY! BUT (yes, there’s a very big but here) it also can help you to completely let go of trying to act, look, be seen as something you’re not which = inauthentic = hiding behind a mask = keeping all your good stuff to yourself instead of sharing it with the rest of the world like Creator had in mind. It also keeps all the magic out, and I think that, deep down, most people feel a lot more comfortable interacting with imperfect humans than automatons that hide behind a thin veneer of perfection. To me, that is MUCH SCARIER!
Just to prove that I am walking my talk, I am including some photos of me getting my dork on. It was scary (in more ways than one). I am a pretty woo-woo sorta chick sometimes, but I embrace the full spectrum, and that includes my super freaky super geek. It can be really liberating to let go of perfection and allow yourself to surrender to the unknown. Play. Bump your shins. Walk into an important meeting with toilet paper stuck on your shoe. As long as you own it, those are the unpredictable, unplannable, uncontrollable elements that give us something to talk about at the dinner table. Laughter is not only the best medicine, many wise elders nd spiritual leaders will tell you that a true sign of a great mind is an immense sense of humor and ability to laugh at oneself.
Captain Crawfish Crusher vs. Pony Chacho
Here are some pics from my most recent dork-a-thon: A smack down with Captain Crawfish Crusher. Pony Chacho (that’s me on the right) is, yet again, victorious! Stay tuned for links to the video of a Supah Stah Dark Chocolate Superfood Bar-powered Pony Chacho takin’ the Crusher to school!
The Wise Crone would agree. She cackles at our fiascos and tells us to get over ourselves! Let go of perfection and embrace the cracks, tears, faux pas, and mishaps. They are always some sort of message from Source asking us to let go of our illusions of control and to pause for a moment of laughter and silliness.
I hope this helps you to quit hiding, get over yourself, get your dork on and start living!
And I just had to share this funny Sesame Street response to the Ylvis video. Took the words right out of my mouth (Sorry, Ylvis! I like the song, but you’ve got the fox all wrong).
Oh, and I am starting a new radio show series on the Conscious Evolution of the Divine Feminine Archetypes starting November 22nd, 2-3PST on Human Spirit Radio. Catch me live every 4th Friday 2-3PST, or catch me in the archives.
Until next week, may the Source be with you!
