Cleansing Tears by Diana Rose Kottle

I find Crying absolutely gorgeous. It cleanses shame and opens the flow…

My practice is showing up for myself when I want to run away screaming from the pain.

And to instead, stand tall and shine love on my shadow.

I’m learning how to BE with me.

With ALL of me.

The light and the dark.

The judgements. The shadow. The less than noble parts of my personality self.

The parts I’m proud of + the aspects that hold so much shame I reject and want to annihilate.

Those shame filled pockets are exactly what I lean into, be with, dance with.

To dissolve and alchemize… with fierce beautiful love.

Tears soften and release shame, transforming it into something gorgeous filled with gifts.

There is no shame in crying. 

In fact, it’s often through our tears that we release the heavy pockets of shame + self judgement we hold.

So allow the cleansing tears to flow.
It is liberating.
And allowing your true authentic expression to flow, will begin to set you free.

It’s time to wake up, to choose to step up, and to powerfully claim your own liberation.

And as always…

Show up courageously. Be authentic. Speak your soul’s truth. Unapologetically. And With Love.
