Taking Up Space
Soul + Vibration + Spirit
As you vibrate higher daily, you’ll divinely be called upon to take up space. This is also part of doing the work.
We can often become attached to our comfort zones, or feel unqualified to move into our power in certain spaces and in various relationship dynamics. It’s not that we are unqualified at all. It’s often that we are afraid of what might happen if we do take up space and shine our light: stand in our power. Will we be judged or mocked?
I’ve learned that no longer taking what other people think or feel about me taking up space, personally, is a way I can ultimately take up space!
The gift and light your carry and have been given, has a higher purpose, and as you stand in your power and enter spaces and journey onward, you help to honor this higher purpose you are a conduit and vessel for.
”Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Take up space in all areas, not just in your comfort zone.
You have an inherent right to take up space. You are qualified.
Take up space around family and friends regarding your higher path and lifestyle. Stand in your power.
There are times when it’s best to stop taking up space in the environments that don’t serve you. Place your energy towards what’s more aligned.
When you feel overwhelmed, do more of what makes you vibrate higher and feel empowered.
Take up space as a conduit and vessel in the world. Shine you light!
Take up space spiritually. Connect and align with The Divine. Saturate, purify, and protect your space with sacred higher vibrations.
