Answering the "Herald's Call" Part II


In my last post, I talked about "answering the "herald's call" and the unexpected turn that doing so caused me to take in my journey. It resulted in an almost complete about face for me. Hearing that call, sitting with it's message, and finally harkening to it's words has been both scary and exhilarating. The longer I sit with that call and that inner voice deep within, the more assured I become that I AM on the right path, that I AM divinely guided and inspired and most importantly that I AM loved and cherished.

The longer I sit with that call and that inner voice deep within, the more assured I become that I AM on the right path, that I AM divinely guided and inspired and most importantly that I AM loved and cherished.

I have realized over the course of the past couple of week's, that the voice of the herald is neither unfamiliar, nor surprising. I have heard its gentle call for many years now and dismissed it, hushed it, or buried it beneath contrived business and multitasking. I cannot do it any longer. That quiet gentle voice has become a shout! "Do it now!" "Stop hiding, making excuses, keeping yourself genuinely (or artificially) busy and do that one thing you have known for years you were born to do! Step out of the shadows and into the light of who you truly are."



But sometimes, the shadows feel like such a safe place. I can remain invisible when I am afraid and operating from a place of insecurity and self-judgement.


I have been granted many more sunrises since those dark days, and for the most part, I've been grateful for each one. I now find myself at this place in my life now...no longer content or even able to hide, but still somewhat afraid, of being exposed, of not being "good enough" to do what I feel so driven and compelled to do. I have come to realize, it isn't about whether anyone enjoys, embraces, accepts, or approves of what I do or say; what matters is that I do it, for the sake of satisfying and answering the herald's call of my own soul.

I have committed to having my first book finished and published before the end of 2020. There. I've said it. I've publically thrown down the gauntlet for myself, and for all the world to see. I'd be honored to have you along for the ride to see the unfoldment and birthing of this "stepping out of the shadows and into the light" as it were.
