Honouring your Past While Moving Forward in Your Awakening?

How do you honour your past while moving forward in your awakening?

In our journey of self-discovery and awakening, we may wonder how to honour our past while moving forward. As Kintsugi women, we embrace the beauty of our brokenness and transform it into strength and wisdom. Here’s how we can honour our past while stepping into our awakened selves:

1. Embrace Your Story

Every scar, every crack, and every broken piece of your past is a celebration of your resilience. Embrace your story with pride. Acknowledge the pain and the lessons it brought. These experiences have shaped you into the strong, beautiful woman you are today.

2. Practice Self Compassion

Be gentle with yourself. Healing is not linear, and it’s okay to have moments of vulnerability. Practice self-compassion by treating yourself with the kindness and understanding you would offer a dear friend. Celebrate your progress, no matter how small.

3. Find Strength in Community

Surround yourself with a supportive community of like-minded women. Share your journey, listen to others, and draw strength from the collective wisdom. Together, we can empower and inspire each other to continue moving forward.

4. Create Rituals of Remembrance

Develop personal rituals to honour your past. This could be journaling, creating art, or a simple meditation practice. These rituals remind you of the growth you’ve achieved.

5. Set Intentions for the Future

It’s important to honour your past and to set intentions for your future. Visualize the woman you want to become and the life you want to lead. Let your past be the foundation on which you build your future.

6. Embody the Spirit of Kintsugi

Kintsugi teaches us that brokenness is not something to hide but to celebrate. Wear your scars with pride and let them shine as golden seams of strength and beauty. Your journey of awakening is a reflection of your resilience and courage.

Honouring your past while moving forward in your awakening as a Kintsugi woman is a delicate balance. It’s about embracing your story, practicing self-compassion, finding strength in the community, creating rituals of remembrance, setting intentions for the future, embodying the spirit of Kintsugi, and staying present.

You are a masterpiece in progress, every step you take is a celebration of your strength and beauty.
