“Stop Allowing Your Own Insecurities to Color the Way You Interpret Someone Else’s Intention” – Unknown

Written for and Published in The Seeds 4 Life.

Insecurities linger in all of us. Some of us are wearing it on our sleeves, some of us keep them hidden behind confident smiles, and some of us introduce them when we speak our name.

However we carry them, they are the introspective view into ourselves; the things we allow to make us feel inadequate, excluded, and uneasy about who we believe we are. They are the color palette we use to paint our perspective view of the world, each other, and possibilities.

With an assortment of colors, our color palettes are ready to help us create; but the colors we choose to use are the ones we see in the mirror.

The colors we have painted ourselves with, the ones we wear on our sleeve, hide behind the confident smile, and the ones we introduce when we speak our name.

These colors are the colors on the tip of our paintbrush, creating our masterpiece of a life, relationships, and reality.

Take a look at your color palette. What colors are predominant? Deep dark tones or light airy hues? Angry bold reds or peaceful quiet blues? Inquisitive grateful greens or dull gloomy grey?

The wonders of colors are in the possibilities. The possibility to create, to change, to lighten, to darken, to express, to be whatever it is we would like to see. Before we accept the way we are seeing ourselves, our world, each other, and our realities, let’s take a look at the tip of our paint brush and the color palette we are dipping them into.


The Garden

Pick your intention and plant your seeds.

Is it ego or spirit the intention feeds?

With each sow, a story is born.

In each reap, an expectation is worn.

As this garden starts to grow,

“Where our mind goes, energy flows.”

Watering weeds or beautiful flowers,

What we nurture, choice is ours.

Did you choose to grow trees?

Grow so tall to see the seas?

Not only tall but deep in roots?

Strong and beautiful bearing fruits?

Did you choose to grow weeds?

Never planted any seeds?

Lacked the spirit fed intention?

With energy streaming towards lackluster attention?

If it’s picking from fruit bearing trees

Or cursing at the overgrowth of weeds;

As you reap what you have sown,

It’s from your intentions they have grown

When the Heart speaks…

When the Heart speaks….

ask: what is your intention?

When the Heart speaks pain,

Let it make you feel the hurt, accept it, release.

When the Heart speaks joy,

Let it dance with your bliss, embrace it and give it away.

When the Heart speaks hate,

Take a look at the reflection and forgive what’s looking back.

When the Heart speaks love,

Let it declare it is there, as loud as it desires to be.

When the Heart speaks sadness,

Follow its echo inward and let it flow outward through tears.

When the Heart speaks happiness,

Let it flow through your body, touch your lips, and smile.

When the Heart speaks….

answer: you are me and I am you.
