I’m talking about cracks in crystals and in you – I am not talking about any other type of crack, obviously.
Please direct your attention to the picture of my amazing new smokey quartz pyramid. Beautiful right?
Well… there was a time in my life when I would have said NO. Reject! Look at the cracks in it – hideous!
In fact, that is what I literally did in 2011 when I bought my first energetically charged crystal bracelet from a kind healer lady in Calgary.
It was the fall, Sang had come out the other side of chemo, radiation and surgery and things were finally looking up. I decided to treat myself to a beautiful crystal bracelet.
When I got the bracelet I carefully inspected every last inch of every last crystal and – gasp – found several cracks. What the ef! I paid good money for this bracelet and so it should be crack free!
Is what I thought at the time.
I even went so far as to contact the lady who made it and meet up with her to show her the imperfections because I wanted a completely perfect one.
Such a metaphor for my mindset and world view 7 years ago when external perfection was of utmost importance to me. Oh silly Twyla….
During our meeting the dear bracelet creator lady patiently explained to me that there are no bracelets that are completely crack free. They all have cracks.
Cracks are a part of life. None of us is crack free and many of us have so many cracks on the inside we try to make our external selves that we present to the world perfect so no one knows about our imperfections.
It’s painful to be seen for the cracked beings we really are, until….
We are able to embrace our cracks and do vulnerability!
Oh vulnerability, how I hated you until Sang died and I realized I could survive the worst of the worst of what life could throw at me. Try to break me, you won’t succeed.
Before I used to think I could and had to protect myself. WRONG. That’s not strength, that’s living in fear.
Strength is being real, being seen for every last crack you have – plus all the good stuff too 😊 And I’m not saying go show your cracks to every last person, that’s not the point.
The point is not to pretend you’re something that nobody is.
That was confusing, let’s try that again: The point is to move from your fantasy illusory world where “perfect” people exist (and is what you strive for) into actual reality where nobody is perfect.
Stop lying to yourself.
Let go of the ridiculous crack free standards you hold for yourself.
Embrace your cracks – they make you YOU.
Just like my new beautiful smokey quartz crystal pyramid – you can still see the amazing unique rainbow refractions at the same time as you see the cracks. The cracks don’t negate the beauty.
