Stepping out of the spiritual closet – sharing your soul’s voice

I’ve always known that I had a message to share. As if it was implanted in me since birth. But I spent a lot of my life in a spiritual closet holding back the boldness of what my soul yearned to share.

Recently on a trip back home to Australia my mum found a letter I had written to her when I was a teenager (I always found writing was the easiest way of expressing myself). In the letter I was trying to explain my connection with my friend Angela who was 30 years older than me, assuring to her that while it might seem odd now, one day soon it will all make sense.

If you have read Light Is The New Black, you will know what a significant part to my path my relationship with Angela was. But no matter how certain I was of my path or how long I knew it, the thing that stopped me the most is this unshakable fear around expressing it. Writing is one thing but stepping onto a stage is something completely different. This fear is the reason I went into a spiritual closet and stayed in there for so long.

When I finally gathered the courage to step out, express my soul’s voice and teach, it was bloody scary. I remember looking at quotes like Joan of Arc’s “I’m not afraid I was born to do this” and wondering if I would ever get to that point. Well, after several years of breathing through my uncomfortableness and over a decade of tapping, chanting, ritualising, praying, past life-ing, surrendering, affirmation-ising and writing my way through it, I am so happy to report that a couple of weeks ago I spoke on stage and had absolutely NO FEAR! NONE. NOTHING!!! WAAAAAAAHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Finally!!!!!

And instead of the fear, I felt utterly held, supported and in my power (like I do when I write).

Soul stories can continue for lifetimes. But shifts can happen in an instant. I know there are so many of you out there who relate to this fear of being seen or not being seen or sharing your soul’s voice, revealing your deepest truths, stepping into your biggness… So many of you who hold the soul memories of persecution for sharing your wisdom, being the healer, acting on your intuition, speaking out, allowing your inner power to be seen…

What I want you to know is this:

There has never been a safer time in history to share your soul’s voice than right now. And every time you share your soul’s voice, you not only make it easier for you, you also encourage someone else to do the same.

If you are in a spiritual closet right now or just holding back the bigness of your message due to fear, I pray that you will find the courage to breathe through the uncomfortableness and share what is inside of you. When one woman rises, she makes the path that much brighter for She.

    I recently did a soul retrieval session in which I saw myself being persecuted for sharing my clairvoyant visions. I have been fearful of sharing my light since I was small but over the last year have shed a lot of these fears and my voice is getting louder and my light brighter 😉 thank you Rebecca for inspiring us all xxxxx

  • Tina West

    On world smile day this is so welcome – thank you Rebecca. Tried to find something uplifting to bring some light to my small group of friends, everything came from a place of darkness and it was quite heartbreaking to seek and not find anything that really hit the spot, it just made me sad – not the thing for a day of smiles. Please come to Perth when you are in Aus, I’ll find the money somehow to share space with you.

  • Annie

    Thank you for the encouragement and light

  • Marian Mellen

    Your book is incredibly meaningful and hits home with me. Thank you for the light and energy I feel radiating from your words. I have begun spreading my unique light through my company and workshops and made the full leap into embracing my soul purpose this year. It’s hard to listen to that silent and deep inner voice because it sometimes has wacky ideas ( and the best ideas) but the more I let myself be guided by source, the more my life unfolds in a magnificent and meaningful way. I find joy and peace wash over me. Thank you Rebecca. Marian

    Hi Rebecca;
    Thank you for all the things you are charing. I have just went out from the closet, i have a few steps more and then I AM!
    Love and light

  • Kirby Anderson

    Thankyou for sharing your wisdom and encouragement Rebecca. I have shed many tears reading your blogs/book, something I trust can only be a good thing. I walked into my favourite book store feeling extremely defeated, opened my heart to a beautiful soul named Kimberly and she gave me your book! Self Awareness is something i have worked tirelessly on since 2009 and finally now I feel like its all coming together. Your work gives me the fire in my heart that has been dimmed for far too long.

  • I’m so glad Kirby. Love that you are not dimming 🙂
