Light Stewards – Sisters and Brothers of Unity is a new group that has taken upon itself the educational and facilitative role of providing suggested guidance for lightworkers who wish to adopt high standards of integrity and the embodiment of Fifth Dimensional qualities as we prepare ourselves for ever-expanding roles in the Golden Age.
Our goal is to generate and share documents which help us to be squeaky clean in our behavior, which in turn allows bliss to rise within us. We also feel that these documents align us with the new paradigm of the divine qualities which we think will make Ascension easier and smoother.
Today we share a document on being open hearted and vulnerable that you may find useful. We encourage you to use it and share it as you see fit.
Being Open Hearted and Vulnerable
Being open hearted and vulnerable with others opens the door for greater communication and connection. By being open hearted and vulnerable with others, it helps others to feel safe to be open hearted and vulnerable with you.
Peace, love and unity consciousness is the theme in the higher dimensions.
We are being encouraged to embody higher dimensional qualities in all areas of our life now as we enter into the New Age.
In order for connection (unity consciousness) to happen, we have to allow ourselves to be deeply seen and vulnerable.
People often numb vulnerability because they don’t want to feel grief, shame, fear, rejection, disappointment, but you can’t numb those feelings without numbing other emotions, such as joy and gratitude.
People who feel worthy of connection, have a strong sense of love and belonging, and fully embrace vulnerability. They believe vulnerability is necessary, that it makes them beautiful. They are whole-hearted people with courage (courage from the Latin word “cuer” = heart). They are willing to do something with no guarantee, including investing in a relationship or opportunity that may or may not work out.
It takes courage to be vulnerable, such as saying “I feel afraid,” or “I don’t know how to do this,” or “I need a hug,” or “I need help,” or “I love you.”
It takes courage to love or share with our whole heart when there is no guarantee we will be loved back.
When we are vulnerable with others, we help others soften and open their hearts, resulting in greater connection and stronger relationships.
Vulnerability is the birthplace of joy, creativity, belonging and love.
- Practice being open hearted and vulnerable with others who you feel safe with
- Share what you feel (not what you think) in a calm, peaceful, respectful way
- Use I statements (ie: I feel…)
- Create an understanding of safety with others, that all feelings are welcome
- If it feels challenging to share your feelings with another, consider doing it in the presence of another whom you trust and feel safe with
- Start discussions or team meetings with brief check ins so people can share their feelings and state their needs openly
- Make creating a safe space to share feelings a priority above what tasks or business needs to be completed
- Remove yourself from situations or relationships where you do not feel safe being vulnerable
- Have patience, compassion and empathy for yourself and others. We are all practicing and learning!
