Once you unleash your demons, they can run far far away.
One time I taught a fitness class at my church.
The second lesson was a workout I created that was a series of long held yoga poses for strength and perseverance.
As I was explaining the inspiration for the workout was a prenatal yoga class, a girl raised her hand and said "one time I read that a Christian did yoga and manifested all kinds of demons in her life."
In my head was a lot of judgy sentences and swear words. Out of my mouth I said the truest most real thing I could muster in a church building. "You can't really manifest demons that aren't already in your head."
Then she left, I got the first of many gentle church conversations about what Christians believe and how I was slightly outside that truth.
The process of getting in tune with yourself probably looks like you manifested some demons in your life.
We're so used to keeping our demons locked deep inside. In our hearts and our guts are all those not good enough and worthiness demons.
And when we start to take action to let them out, it looks like more bad than good. Your family starts to think "hmmm...It appears she is troubled."
But here's the honest truth. Many of us have been troubled for a long time. We have felt unworthy of love, of abundance and of using our voices for most of our lives. We have battled silently for decades. We have played by all the rules we were supposed to.
And to people who counted on us feeling unworthy to use our voices or create our own rules, it probably looks troubling.
The difference between this and troubled is that we know. That on the other end of releasing all this toxic stuff from our lives is relief and joy.
Finding relief and joy is #sexyAF
