The magnificence of a community

As much as we like to keep our fears and vulnerabilities within; the reality is that if we want to evolve in our life, thats not a viable option.


We all need someone…..


Sometimes its not the closest people to us that can help us the most – sometimes because of the emotional connections, its even harder to open up, as the fear to upset them, or for them to see us upset, simply does not create the right environment for us to feel free enough or safe enough to let our emotions flow.

That, I hasten to add, is in no way a detriment to the relationship – its because you care so much that these limitations can get in the way.

“Life is not a solo act. It’s a huge collaboration, and we all need to assemble around us the people who care about us and support us in times of strife.”

Tim Gunn


So what do you do?  Who in your life do you have that can totally hold space for you?


Thats actually a bigger question than it sounds – who can you be with, that will sit with you, hold you, without trying to fix you, judge you or lead you in any way.

Who do you have in your life that will just hold that space for you and provide that safe, nourishing and enriching space that you can allow all emotions to flow.  Where you can explore within to the deeper and deepest levels without fear, shame or embarrassment.

Often when people think about that – the answer isn’t always the one that they are looking for.

Sometimes it raises a reality that actually there is no-one in their life right now. There is no-one that you would feel safe enough to completely let go with.

Again, this may not be about not having people in your life that you feel are deep enough or strong enough. This maybe about you.

It could be that you are needing to open your heart, just a little.  Maybe you have armoured yourself up so much to protect yourself from pain and hurts; that you can no longer feel the nourishment and love from others.

Maybe, its time to let a little light in – to create a crack so that you can begin to feel……

It may also be that dipping you toe in first to listen, observe and build your trust is where you need to start too.

A community can provide you with that safe place – a local group that connects regularly from women groups to mindfulness groups.  

Even sitting in silence with others can somehow bring a deep connection between you.

Communities offer you that container where you can build your trust and slowly allow pin pricks of light to penetrate through.

A community can begin to feel familiar enough to join in on the discussions.

It can feel safe for you to offer insights from your experiences and share your wisdoms with others.

A community offers a place where you can build on your life journey.

A community can offer you the opportunity of deeper self discovery.

It can offer a place to get to know yourself and understanding you as the person you are today.


What would be the first step for you?                   What feels safe for you?

How do you make this connection in your life?


Remember as always gentle steps

Be kind to yourself, always

Till next time

With love
