So I recently read a little something out there that spoke to me, and I needed to share it with the world. It’s been the framework with which I am measuring my personal growth. It’s been accurate to a T as to what I’ve felt and how I’ve been moving through the phases. As I write this now I am in Phase 4: Lilith, and am anticipating a grand move to Phase 5: Witch. Since I’m writing a few things that reference this, I figured why not link to the original here and explain a little below?
Stage One: The beginning
Phase One: She
When you do what you’ve always done because you never bothered to question why. You live in your self created prison until you realise that you don’t have to. This is the moment you know that there is only before this moment and after this moment.
Phase Two: Becoming
Chrysalis… Simply me right now… stuck in the middle.
Stage Two: The burn down
Phase Three: Eve
Surrender to the process and the “fact finding” phase. I love research and I’m hungry for all the knowledge I can find.
Phase Four: Lilith
Dancing in the fire, yup… dancing around in the turmoil now. I still don’t KNOW things… but I am getting there. Discovery has been a “trial by fire” time and I embrace it fully.
Phase Five: Witch
There is a KNOWing that comes with this stage, and acting on that knowledge that I just can’t muster the strength for yet. But soon…
Stage Three: The birth
When you emerge with your knowledge as your true self.
Phase Six: Goddess
Time to show the world who you have become.
Phase Seven: Me
Enjoying your true self and teaching others.
As I begin my new set of positive affirmations, I hope to push what I have learned so far into forms of knowing. Being able to believe and know in my heart what I have found is true, and then being able to use that knowledge to affect the world around me is huge. I have never had control of my own life before, it has always been varying degrees of beholdenness to the ideas others pressed upon me… I can’t wait to be not just free but confident as well.
To me! Eventually…
