Excavation

I don’t like to be advice giving but there are things I am going to write about in this blog that may sound so. We are all in choice, so just remember that I know this.

You have to be willing to go deep, go under the layers, look behind, underneath, deeper, or even further out, if you really want to know yourself. I am not saying you all need to do this or it’s imperative for one to know oneself. However if you have any strands within you that match mine, this is true for you too.

There are so many layers to us and I am not just speaking about layers that come with time on the planet and life experience, or our personality, or stories of heart break, or even behavior patterns. There are depths that come from prior to us even arriving here. Don’t ask me to explain that; I am not there yet. And I know it’s true. At least for me it is.

My point being, we are dynamic, multi-faceted, energy infused miracles of Light and there is so much more to every single one of us then meets the eye. Or ear for that matter. It’s a wonderland, truly. Who we are. If we choose to see it that way.

I am an excavator. I like to dig and learn, and dig some more. Not just about me. For sure. I should have been an anthropologist. We are so interesting. Even those of us that think for sure we are not. There are layers awaiting excavation.

The point of this post is to call this out. Highlight it. Champion it. Because I want to. And also because I am in a really interesting place, where I have space, and time and I like to excavate. Sometimes I can use the findings against myself but I am happy to note that I have learned a few things from a few smart people that have taught me that I also have dominion and discernment. I can choose to receive learnings in the spirit of Loving and appreciating myself more or I can go another path. I have spent many a year down the other path – the self-improvement path, which often came with an obsession of needing to be better or just someone other than who I am. And that’s okay too. It’s all about the learning. I am just more aware now that the excavation doesn’t need to be about rejecting myself, rather about deepening in my conscious connection with who I am and why I am here.

I am excavating a bit right now.

I am learning things about myself that I didn’t know. I am learning that I want to be seen and heard. Not in an egotistical way, rather, in a way that uses my special powers for good. I am learning that I don’t care so much what everyone thinks. I have just carried that belief around for so long that I thought it was still true for me. I am learning that I can change a life long habit through choice and literally placing myself in and out of situations that support that, over and over again.  I am learning that I don’t need to explain myself to anyone. I am learning that I came here to do deep and profound work on knowing my Soul. I don’t know why that is, I just know that it is.

I am excavating and learning. It’s a good thing.

For your consideration…

  • Excavation sounds so much more fun and playful (like digging in the backyard as a kid) then all this “work” that we (certain me in the past) think has to be done on ourselves or others.

    I love this! Thank you Jen-diana Jones! :)

    Amen, and I would add that excavation requires courage and willingness to see the uncomfortable things sometimes. I see that in you.
