I was asked this question by a friend today when I looked I said my sisters Ruth and Jann. Amy then asked me what about your friends, I have 5000 Facebook friends and I would say one of them, my long time friend Clare who helped me through my recent mental health breakdown would be the closest. What is it that stops the human race letting people get close to them? I have an idea, I believe we stop telling each other what I call our Sacred Love Stories at an early age for fear of being hurt. These are the negative and positive stories about ourselves that go like this: If you knew this about me I would have to kill you and I am not boasting, I really went through or did this. I designed a workshop around the chakras using that technology but my if you knew this about me I would have to kill you got in the way of me ever running it.
What does it take to totally trust someone to be authentic and not withhold anything? I am learning how to do this and acknowledge Amy, who is allowing me to go on this journey with her. So what has society said about knowing the real you, lets have a look:
1. Dale Evans Rogers (born Lucille Wood Smith; October 31, 1912 – February 7, 2001) was an American actress, singer, and songwriter. She was the third wife of singing cowboy Roy Rogers.
2. I have been being taught this powerfully over the last week: You Really Got Me.
3. Very relatable.
4. And that the stories you make up in your head about the people in your life are not true until you get to deeply know them: Say It Right.
6. Prayer is such a powerful healing tool: Praying.
7. Warts and All comes to mind.
8. And in front of the L-word do not forget to put the Self word: Rainbow.
9. I think she is.
10.. The whole kit and caboodle, that’s true love: Who You Are.
11. I have found out lately I do this most of my waking moments.
12. Another form of insomnia: You are the Reason.
13. My new life contract.
14. From one of civilisation’s great thinkers, This: Love Myself.
15. And for our final lesson, we cross to Socrates best buddy, Plato.
No list as promised, Amy, just a deep sense of gratitude for your listening for me.
The playlist begins with a 60’s classic from The Kinks. Then we delve into pop diva land for the next four tracks: Nelly Furtado, Kesha twice and Jessie J. Over to C & W for the next track from Callum Scott and we complete with my most played song by Hailee Steinfeld: Who Really Really Knows You.
Another recent question has come to mind writing this, what would you say if you could say one thing to the world leaders, of course, Love and Respect for All, Everyone Included.
Until we meet again, my dear friends.
