There is a special one walking amongst us. Not special, of course, in that she is better or more important than any other, but special in that she has a very particular combination of gifts and way of seeing the world that position her to make a unique, beautiful and necessary contribution at this time of great change and transformation.
Though I say ‘she’, this one takes the form of both woman and man.
She is highly sensitive, intuitive and empathic. She has journeyed far into her inner world, seeking answers few others dare to ask.
She has invested herself in the courageous work of healing, facing into her own shadow, knowing that to heal herself is to heal the world.
When there has been a choice to walk into the fire or to remain in safety, she has chosen the fire every time. She is not without fear, yet she is compelled to travel to and explore the edges, no matter how challenging that journey may prove.
She has refused to settle for the status quo and has walked paths that have caused others to call her naive, idealistic, or irresponsible. Still, she walked on into the wild unknown, drawn by a deeper knowing that this is the path she must take.
She is extraordinarily tender, yet astonishingly strong, and quiet as she may be, the earth is rumbling now, calling her to rise from the underground she has inhabited and offer her knowing to the world.
She will re-open forgotten doorways to the sacred and reignite reverence for mystery, bringing balance to a world crumbling under the weight of reason and logic alone.
Now is her time.
I call this one the Quiet Rebel.
Love and courage,
