What does being vulnerable mean to you and how does it contribute to our spiritual growth. Astrology is exceptionally helpful in showing our greatest vulnerabilities.
Is being vulnerable something that happens naturally, or something that you consciously avoid?
“The quality of being vulnerable, easily hurt, influenced or attacked”.Cambridge Dictionary.
There is a lot of a lot of emphasis for humans to be “vulnerable” with one another, but as I ponder the idea of vulnerability, I am pondering, what does one truly gain from being vulnerable, if the essence of its meaning is to be hurt, influenced or attacked?
Vulnerability has been a theme in my life for as long as I can remember, and as I consciously and subconsciously strive for personal and spiritual growth, this dreaded word keeps rearing it’s not so cute head at me.
Partners want us to be vulnerable, but why? Being vulnerable can have different meanings to each individual, yet, the meaning is still the same!
According to it’s definition, being vulnerable means to leave us open. Leaving us open means we are allowing others to hurt, influence or attack us.
Why be vulnerable?
In contrast, why do we have to be vulnerable? Can’t we just be open and aware? Aware of self, aware of others, aware of energies, aware of our surroundings and of our inner intuitive awareness?
Consequently, it is crucial to understand that being “vulnerable” can be costly to our spiritual and personal developmental, our progress as well as our achievements.
Furthermore, would we allow our children to be vulnerable (easily hurt, influenced or attacked) by someone who threatened their happiness, stole their joy and made them feel that the world and relationships are unsafe?
Quite simply, the answer is no.
To be vulnerable is nothing to be ashamed of…
Let me make that clear. The point here to remember is that being vulnerable with the right person can be very rewarding indeed. But how exactly do we know that our vulnerability is safe with someone that we choose?
Additionally, being vulnerable shouldn’t be encouraged like it’s an expectation and prerequisite for being in relationships. Unless of course this is reciprocated.
Leaving ourselves open to others is something that we should want to be doing because we want to, not because others expect us to.
Nurture your inner child…
Should we allow the child within us to feel trapped in a distorted belief that being vulnerable is a good thing? Depends on the situation and the level of awareness of our partners.
Freeing your inner child from the distorted beliefs that we have created through our life experiences helps us to reframe our understanding of what being vulnerable truly means to us.
Our inner child is the core of our being. It’s where we find joy and peace, innocence and freedom, care and understanding, compassion and love, burrowed deep within our soul.
The very essence of our inner being is our inner child which needs nurturing and protection from the things that hurt, influence or attack us.
The child within us is who we hide from the world from a fear of being vulnerable to the things that threaten our survival.
It is a fear of being wrongfully hurt, badly influenced or physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually attacked.
How do we overcome the social norms and relationship expectations of vulnerability?
Just. Don’t. Do it! Don’t be vulnerable. Vulnerable is not cute. It’s scary, frightening, ugly, draining, and unhelpful.
Instead, be authentic, be brave, be strong, be loving, be kind, be caring, be compassionate, be firm, be authentic, be free, and most importantly, be you!
Don’t be what others say that you need to be. You know better than anyone else that you are the maker of your life!
In other words, you hold the power and strength within you to stand up to others. In fact, no one else will stand up for you better than you can.
For this reason, it’s imperative that you take a stand against those who tell you that you’re too much of this and not enough of that.
So what if you are too much of this and you are not enough of that for someone else. You are enough for you! Even if an under evolved narcissist who is projecting what they are lacking on to you says you are not.
Am I enough if I’m not vulnerable enough?
You. Are. Perfect. Just the way you are. Where you are on your journey is exactly where you are meant to be.
We should never jump through timelines or hoops that doesn’t resonate with you for someone who lacks the respect and authenticity to love you as the perfect and divine, beautiful creature that you are.
How many of you have been attuned to your higher self and following your cosmic paths only to meet someone and all of a sudden, you are laying awake at nights wondering how you ended up being a hot mess with someone who undervalues you and sucks the life and energy out of you?
