I recently participated in a week long Instagram offering from Elisa Spring of Sacred Spiral Mana.. she is a dear friend across the oceans in Hawaii, we have met in the flesh once, but we know each other so well, or maybe it’s that we fully see each other, or accept each other, and maybe all of that. I love our almost daily interactions and sharing on Instagram, a window into her world and hers into mine. And through her Vulnerability for Seven days, I got to share and experience more of her and the other brave women that participated. It was frightening and freeing.
Thank you Elisa
I thought I’d share my daily contemplations from the week here, and encourage you to check out the hashtag #vulnerabilityfor7days on Instagram and follow @sacredspiralmana for more vulnerability and sacred relationship love. You can find me on Instagram at @makingsacred
Day 1 was saying yes! So that was easy
Day 2 💛day2💛 what is vulnerability? ⚜ Vulnerability is putting my thoughts and dance into words ⚜Vulnerability is trusting I am enough ⚜ Vulnerability is sharing of myself wholly ⚜ vulnerability is showing my dance to you ⚜ Vulnerability is sharing my story and trusting you with it ⚜ Vulnerabilty is trusting you love me as much as I love you ⚜ Vulnerability is Trust ⚜
This is a little bit frightening to send out to the world, but in the spirit of vulnerability and trust.. I do 💛
💙 day 3… 🌟Shine🌟The magic I bring by being me is ……. !! It feels incredibly vulnerable to say what magic I think I bring.. feels a bit embarrassing 😳.. But I trust 💙So I humbly share in my experience of being me, I have felt that the magic I bring is beauty. By that I mean sacredness, holding, truth and love to a place that might otherwise have been lacking those things.. I am asked to be at birth, at death, at blessings, with sadness and celebration and honouring of rites… and it seems that because I’ve been asked to hold that space, that no matter where we end up (like an operating theatre with an emergency caesarean) that sacredness and beauty comes with us.. a presence and awareness and holding of the magic that is happening in the moment .. it’s where Making Sacred comes from.. my work.
Day 4 #vulnerabilityfor7days with @sacredspiralmana 🌀 self doubt 🌀 when I experience self doubt I am greeting my oldest companion. My birth imprint was being born and then separated from my mother.. Alone after the first great creative act of my life (after conception, which had a similar imprint being an unwanted pregnancy) I shared in a recent post that I never really know if any dance I post is ‘good’ .. It’s true, and it’s not just in dance I feel this.. I didn’t get the bio feedback from my mother at birth that everything was alright, that I was loved.. and so I flounder after creativity- losing conviction in what I have created, doubting it’s worth.. I use to seek approval from others, but no matter how positive the feedback I never really received it or felt it fully.. 🌀I’ve been working with this awareness for about 7 years now and have new ways of being with this.. I trust my inspiration and creation, the easy and joyful parts for me, and know that in time I will be able to look back and know my creation is worthy, worthwhile and a gift in the moments of conception and creation. I cherish the joy in the moment remembering it’s not about the finished product. I trust. 💗 my #dailyimprovisation has been a little healing for me and my creative expression, to share freely and joyfully 💓💓💓 Join us in this #vulnerabilityfor7days if you feel to..

🌟day 5🌟 ‘release’.. Laughter with my favourite people was my release today.. These girls, my homees, my dance partners keep it real.. what really matters is the joy level .. This was a spontaneous release this morning at 8am in Sydney traffic.. Perfect track for our commute.. It can be so intense, 🕗🚛🚓🚕😖 so we make it like this.. #dailyimprovisation #thesegirlscrackmeup #vulnerabilityfor7days (totally Steiner/Waldorf approved music)!!! 😜❤️❤️❤️ #idontknowwheretheygetitfrom ❤️

💟 ending reflections 💟 this has been real! It’s been totally challenging to reveal all to hundreds of people I’ve never met, and I trust this space, which is weird! This process of revealing my wounds and gifts has been inspired, inspiring, and binding in the way that sharing your story and hearing another’s is.. This is how love and acceptance begins. By listening, by trusting and receiving.. And the reflection I have looking at me right now after all of this is these 4 magnificent humans that I adore, they wouldn’t be here if my story was different… Thank you @sacredspiralmana and thank you all the women at #vulnerabilityfor7days .. Some new sisters in my circle now and deep love for those I already know.. so beautiful to be here with you 🌊🌘🕸💛 xxxx
I encourage you to explore your vulnerabilities.. the more we witness each other in our vulnerable states the more love and compassion we have for each other.
Love Talulah xxx
