Loving all your differences into their highest form

You’re very different to anyone else. You know it, you’ve always known it, you may have even hidden it, buried it deep and dark, masked it in a variety of ways, tried to heal it, medicate it, to soften it, even to make something of it…but its never been more obvious to you, in a myriad of ways, than now. New definitions for your differences may have recentlty surfaced as you’ve allowed yourself to see them more; and these are often helpful, as long as used to better notice all the inherent gifts, not the stigma applied by others. People may have challenged these, doubted them “at you” as you dared to own these things about yourself and “come out” (like you weren’t even there in the discussion; exactly like they were the one with the problem, which is true), acting as though your uniqueness is an illness (its not) that offends them or their sacrosanct version of reality. 

You may have swung wildly from the point of almost embracing this back into the depths of fear at your own non-conformism, over and over again, almost to the point of breakdown or, yes, you’ve broken down. Now you are here and this difference is asserting its truth like never before and with that comes some sort of relief as you dare to allow that you can really choose to go this way, not back into the cookie-cutter tyrany of all your previous existences. You’re finally letting go of all the many vain hopes of finding your exact mirror image (though you may find your compliment…), like watching grains of sand pour though your fingers, relishing the sensation, though you never thought you would. In these potent weeks at this very potent time, many of us are facing this truth, like two people met in a narrow corridor, awkwardly jostling to get past without meeting each other’s eyes; though we are only meeting our self, which is  ours for the owning at last…fully and unconditionally. Dare to believe this and you will make a quantum leap!

Linearity is softening so you are embracing all the many gifts of yourself, gathered in great armfuls, across all of time. Suddenly, you just know who you are, in great flashes of knowing, and this needs no validation from “other”, being self-contained. Be curious, allow it to happen to you, not because you are orchestrating from an old sense of self but because many hidden parts of you are revealing at last and its more fascinating than any other distraction could be. Then LOVE yourself whole; you were always the only one who could.

It may feel like the cutting of last ties with the idea of “fitting in” fully with any other person on earth, or with their exact viewpoint of what is taking place here, yet this concensus is no longer as necessary as we once thought it was; in fact it held our highest creator gifts back. Nurture healthy suspicion where new one-size-fits-all theories try to reassert, as they will; just part of the backlash. Something in us urges us on in this call for our own excusite uniqueness, our exact fit-for-purposeness, our very particular expression of source creator…and its both important and needed. Don’t shirk this task, don’t turn away and hide or fall out of love with yourself again but go with this truth; its your very foundation, the platform on which you get to experience a New You built for a New Time ahead. You were made this way by YOU for this very now.

About Helen White

Helen White is a professional artist and published writer with two primary blogs to her name. Her themes pivot around health and wellbeing, expanded consciousness and ways of noticing how life is a constant dance between the deeply subjective and the collective-universal, all of which she explores with a daily hunger to get to know herself better. Her blog Living Whole shines a light on living with high sensitivity, dealing with trauma and healing from chronic health issues. Spinning the Light is an extremely broad-based platform where she elucidates the everyday alchemy of relentless self-exploration. A lifetime of "feeling like an outsider" slowly emerged as neurodivergence (being a Highly Sensitive Person with ADHD, synaesthesia, sensory processing challenges and other defecits overlapping with giftedness). All of these topics are covered in her blogs, written from two distinct vantage points so, if you have enjoyed one of them, you may wish to explore the other for a different, yet entirely complimentary, perspective.

    Oh, this brought welcome tears of validation to my eyes, that first paragraph particularly, and it’s exactly what I’ve been being led into through, curiously, this online video game I’ve been playing, my interactions with others in it, and the writing I’m doing in conjunction with it. Nothing is trivial, is it? Meaning , significance, healing, and process are everywhere! Oh, life is rich!
