Singing for some is literally bearing the soul. Its obvious that this is one of those cases.
To hear him sing means seeing all of who he is. Its extremely vulnerable and if you’ve been pushed around, made fun of, or watched others go through that, its safer to stay quiet and let people wonder what’s up with you.
This young man stood there, pulled open his jacket and bared his chest – metaphorically – saying here I am, take your best shot. Wow did that take courage. For many, they will never muster up the courage to make such a bold statement about who they are. Instead they will remain small, less than they could be, bending to the conformity thrust upon them by others.
His soul cried out to be heard until he could no longer ignore it. The more people who find that courage, the more others will feel they can do it also. Its a great act by a very courageous soul.
The truth is, in the wrong environment, it would have been misunderstood and probably ridiculed.
His talent is very personal and he didn’t know how to let it out until the right time came. Thankfully the time did come and he was up for the challenge. I can only imagine what he must have been feeling before going on stage.
Daniel Jacob had this to say: “This is the very heart of the current transformation . . . men getting in touch with their feminine . . . and this man is choosing to bring that into form GRAPHICALLY and WHOLISTICALLY. Very much like the Shamans in many indigenous cultures who wear skirts to honor their feminine side. This man is doing it with make-up and with his voice. The fact that he is so embraced and so honored is a great sign for the planet! We’re more “on time” than we’ve acknowledged!”
To which I replied, “its not just the men needing to get in touch with their feminine side. The ladies are doing it big time as well. This morning I spent a couple of hours discussing this very thing. Even though many of us have embraced our feminine in some ways, in others we are just beginning. To be a vessel for the Divine Feminine requires learning an entirely new way of “being.” So much fun to understand and explore. I LOVE what this guy is doing and the things it is bringing up. So thank you, Daniel, for getting this particular conversation started by posting the video. Much love Dear One!”
People spend their whole lives comparing themselves with others and often feeling they come up short. They feel they are somehow less than, inferior, not as good, pretty, intelligent, rich, confident, or skilled, as someone else.
Magazines, television, families, churches, friends and co-workers all convince you that you should be a certain way, dress a certain way, and think a certain way.
You need to learn to love, honor, accept, appreciate, and acknowledge the gifts and talents you’ve been given, as well as your uniqueness, your body, mind, and emotions, all the quirks and delights of your personality.
If you could for one moment see yourself through God’s eyes, you would know – finally – the delight you bring to the Universe. You are a blessing. You are a gift. You came here with a mission and you are doing exactly what you are supposed to be in every now moment.
No matter who you are, what you’ve been through, or even what you’ve done, you have a special role to play here. And you are loved.
When you can really “get” that. When you can feel it and know it to the depths of you, then and only then will your life change.
If you are like most people, you are your own worst enemy – constantly criticizing and ridiculing yourself.
Stop the judgment and ridicule. Give yourself a break. Realize that even though you are not perfect, its totally O.K. You are doing the best you can and it is absolutely, positively O.K. to screw it up sometimes.
You need to become your own best friend. Instead of ridicule, why not pat yourself on the back and say “good job.” Allow yourself to be proud and excited when you find the courage to try something new. Because that is what its going to take to ever muster up the courage to truly be yourself and let your unique light shine forth for all the world to see.
You are Magnificent!
Live it. Experience it. Be it!
