Kaleidoscope Eyes

My love you were born a veritable kaleidoscope.

Wisdom from a thousand lifetimes and ten thousand ancestors running through your veins.

When you open your eyes, galaxies dance within their mirrored reflection.

So why does your heart cry out for freedom and release?

Your soul tears bearing witness to the accepted confines of a culture worshiping the binary.

Masculine OR feminine. Right OR wrong. Liberal OR conservative. Science OR spirituality.

What has been done in the name of “progress” opposes natural creativity.

Throw off the chains of conformity and return to your Essence.

Let down the glory of your many splendored authenticity.

Your fluidity is a marvel to behold.

Many of the individuals I work with as a therapist and spiritual empowerment coach struggle to accept or re-embrace their perceived dualities. We live in a world that asks us to explain ourselves through labels or the roles we serve in. This undercuts true identity or Essence.

Furthermore, as Donald Miller of “Building a Story Brand” would say, “Binary thinking is the enemy of creativity.” It fools us into believing there’s only ONE way to solve something so we don’t even explore what in fact could be, potentially limitless answers.

Imagine how amazing, successful and truly satisfying your life, business, and relationships could be if you learned to channel the very healthy tension between most decisions and went beyond black and white thinking.

What if today you allowed yourself to pause whenever you felt pressure rising and retreat within to the kaleidoscope of creativity?

You were born for MORE. Don’t settle for less.
