“The Universe sees you as completely perfect,
no matter what you’re going through.”
– Jennifer Hough
One of my favorite movies is How to Train Your Dragon. In the movie, the kid’s name is Hiccup. His father, Stoick the Vast, puts an older man, Gobber the blacksmith, in charge of Hiccup. After a particularly embarrassing mishap by Hiccup, Gobber waves his hand in the boy’s general direction, chases after him for a while, and says, “You know, Hiccup, you’re going to have to stop all of … this.” Hiccup replies, “But you just pointed to all of me”! “Yes, that’s it,” says Gobber, “You need to stop being all of you.”
Maybe you’ve felt like Hiccup at times in your life, and you’ve been defending yourself from criticism or harm ever since. Perhaps you’ve come to believe that someone else’s opinion of you is the truth of who you are.
Maybe, like me, you morphed yourself so that you’d be lovable or acceptable to others. Maybe, you react when you don’t feel connected and aren’t looking for the “third entity” solution to the problem. Maybe you’re not well practiced at answering the question, “What would love do”?
In the movie, the audience finds out that Hiccup becomes the hero only when he fully accepts who he is and uses his unique abilities to free his people and the dragons. It’s an entertaining parable, and it happens to be true. Hiccup discovers just how hard it is to live up to someone else’s expectations, if that means living against his true nature.
Soul Family doesn’t need you to change. If you’re fortunate, some of them can be biological family. The Universe sees you as completely perfect, no matter what you’re going through.
It doesn’t have a problem with anything you say or do. When you’re a little off track, it redirects you to something that better serves your highest and best, without judgment .
Would you do the same for your family?
With all my love,
P.s. This is an excerpt from Chapter 5 – Finding Harmony and Fluidity with Family in my book UNSTUCK – The Physics of Getting Out of Your Own Way. If you’d like more context and further understanding of anything that has you saying to yourself ‘What does that mean? …. Then I invite you to head on over to Amazon to get your copy in paperback, Kindle or Audible. Heck … some have them in all three formats … to listen while driving or on a walk, to read by the pool or lakeside or while on a plane … choose what fits your fancy!
