Why You Need to Take the Intimacy Plunge
Over these past few days, I’ve been sharing 5 super personal stories around INTIMACY that I feel need to be told, so we can all learn from them and make the best choices.
Here’s part 5.
It’s such a sexy word invoking thoughts of romance and sensuality.
Yet, the true meaning of intimacy is ‘into me you see’.
Intimacy relates directly to the KLT factor.
Knowing, liking and trusting yourself prepares you for intimacy at the deepest levels.
In intimacy, you know, like and trust each other – unwaveringly.
It’s been a handful of years since my epiphany sitting before my parents and I can say without a doubt, I’ve got this know, like and trust – thus the intimacy thing, down.
All I have to do is look around me and at the life I’ve created.
I have a deeply intimate business helping female leaders shed the expectations of others to live their true life purpose. We delve into all aspect of their lives and I’ve got them every step of the way.
I have such close friends, I wear them. If you watch me on video, I talk about licking them I’m so close with them. I’ve got to the mat and back again with each (and would do so again today in a heartbeat.)
I have two happy teenagers, yes even now, who are centered in knowing exactly who they are and what their gifts are in the world.
I have a 22-year loving marriage with my soul mate, Greg, who I love more and more every day. We’re perfectly imperfect for each other and I can’t imagine loving anyone more than I do him.
I walk with the Divine in intimacy every moment of every day. My connection goes into the heart of Mother Earth and up through the Holy Spirit to the face of God. I commune with Jesus with each breath and honestly, there’s nothing I’ve experienced in such an intimate way.
I live each day with a completely open heart, following her wisdom at every moment.
I am a living version of intimacy ‘into me you see’.
I’m intimate in all areas of my life – with myself, with the Divine, friends, family, clients.
Life is so much richer when you live in intimacy.
You receive gems on a daily basis, especially in the simple moments.
During the Full Moon a few days ago, Greg and I shared a moment that wouldn’t be possible without emotional intimacy – its deepest kind.
It happened as I looked at him cleaning the kitchen after dinner and realized he loves to serve me. He truly LOVES to serve me and I know deep in my heart that this is an expression of his total acceptance and unconditional love for me. It’s such a simple thing, but filled completely with love.
I don’t think these words convey the meaning of this moment all I can say is I’ll cherish it forever.
We have total acceptance and unconditional love for each other and our children. I have total acceptance and unconditional love for my dear friends and clients.
Life in intimacy is it.
In fact, it’s my KWAN.
Who would have known 25 years ago in that NYC café when I was pressed to define my KWAN, it would have been intimacy?
Intimacy creates trust.
It provides connection and knowing.
It brings happiness, joy and love.
I invite you to join me at this intimate level.
Intimacy changes your life into one of endless possibility.
Who wouldn’t want that?
