I Dare You

I dare you to leap. Fully. Wildly. Into the light. Into the unknown. Into the magic that you cannot yet see. I dare you to trust. To believe that unseen spaces hold so much power. Potential. Imagination. I dare you to walk into that mighty cave of possibility. We dream up wonders. We dream up fears. Terrific pains that tell us to stay safe. Comfortable. Away from harm. I dare you to remember the truth. The truth that the future is a creative process, not a heavy weight you must bow to. I dare you to entertain that you are more than your resistance. You are the dream unfurling into the moment. I dare you to know yourself as such.

I dare you to stretch. A little more. Decadently into the direction of the calling of your heart. I dare you to let go of the things you think you are meant to do. Promises held over from another time and place. There is only now. Only the the desires that shine brightly and purely from the inside out. Unleash them and feel the flow carry you. I dare you to step into yourself in a whole new way. Your way. The way. And as you do, I dare you to let yourself be seen. Be loved. Be adored. I dare you to extend that same courtesy to yourself and shower yourself in delicious adoration for all that you are, all that you do, all that you are creating.

I dare you to speak your mind. To be seen. To share your message. Your wisdom. Your essence. I dare you to take a chance. To risk failure. To stop waiting for things to come round right and embrace the transcendent imperfections every opportunity offers. I dare you to slow down. Notice the moment. Listen deeply to what your soul has to say. I dare you to connect to the divine, to find it outside of your head and deep in your being. To spread that connection all over the globe.

I dare you to be brave. Courageous. When the world feels topsy turvy. When the aches and pains tell you to shut up…to go back to the small ways. I dare you find the fortitude within yourself and break down the walls of perception. I dare you to let yourself off the hook. Offer forgiveness to the judgments that press against the flow of your natural radiance. I dare you to sit in silence. To stop spinning fairy tales. To love yourself for all the things that you have judged yourself for.

I dare you to seek pleasure. Find love. Lean into the wind and go where adventure calls. I dare you to write. Paint. Create. I dare you to dance. To play. To scream out in ecstasy. Or moan with delight. I dare you laugh at nothing at all. You are the catalyst for tremendous bliss. You. Enjoy that. Enjoy yourself. Your authority. I dare you to revel in your own magnificence. Pour glitter over every ounce of your being and shimmyshake your way to the best time ever. I dare you to sing wildly. Loudly. Terribly. I dare you.

I dare you to leap. leap. leap. Into the arms of life!
