I’m Not Afraid of Going to Hell

Yesterday was divinely powerful in so many ways and today I am beyond grateful for everyone who has played a part in my life the past year.

As I was sitting here this morning leaning into this glorious space of lightness and freedom and relief, I felt such profound love for this journey. Such openness. Such compassion.

The past 18 months have been preparing me for this moment. The moment where I can truly BE ME and move forward in ways like no other. Sure, there are things I wish hadn’t happened. Despair I wish I hadn’t felt. Pain I wish I hadn’t witnessed.

But the most profound thing that occurred to me this morning was that:

I’m not afraid of going to hell. . . I’ve already been there.

And in between all that despair and pain, was an unfolding of trust. An unfolding of peace. Of grace. Of deeper integrity. Of expansion and inspiration and truth.

And an unfolding of unconditional love. Beautiful love. A love beyond anything I’ve ever felt before.

What I know is this:

Pain is always temporary.
Truth is infinitely unchallengeable.
Love is eternally limitless. Eternally free. Eternally divine.

Last year, one of the things my coach drilled into my head – which I finally now know within my heart – was a simple phrase:

It’s who you BE.

Admittedly, it took me some time to know what she meant and when I got it – truly, deeply got it – everything changed.

What you want to see in the outside world must first be born within you. It must first grow and expand and align within you. You cannot give what you do not have.

So in this moment I intend to:

Be open.
Take risks.
Embrace myself.

Because in the end, it all boils down this:
Love, and only love, heals all wounds.
AND. . . love is always the answer.

Love + Magic,
~Annie
