I think you would have to live under a rock to not have heard the terminology of "being seen" in the spiritual community. It tends to be another catch phrase that healers and coaches use to get people "out there". Wherever "out there" is. When people talk about being seen, they are most likely referring to allowing your true self to shine out into the world. All of your idiosyncrasies, your fears, your vulnerability, your gifts, your true vibration and essence. But sometimes it's not as easy as it sounds. It is also perhaps doing a live on social media or teaching a class for the first time.
Being seen can look different based on many factors and can change throughout your journey and even during the week. Being seen is something that happens after a certain level of safety is built in your body. For many lightworkers, sensitives, and healers, being seen is not the easiest thing in the world. In past lives, we were persecuted, and even murdered for being seen. So, I don't know about y'all but for a long while, I wasn't exactly feeling safe around putting my witchiness out there.
In fact, when I first started having my gifts activate, I was very aware of who I could share the information with. I would hide crystals and oracle cards when certain people came over to my house. I would keep all the magical experiences I was having close to the cuff. And, yea a large part of what kept me doing those things and hiding, was the fear I felt. I didn't understand it at the time, I just knew it was safer to keep it on the DL. And I'm here to tell you that it's okay to be discerning about who you are sharing certain things with. I was also able to find people who were into the same whoo whoo stuff as me and began cultivating relationships that allowed me to fully be me.
If you are struggling with this right now, I want you to know it's okay to limit who you share certain things with. As you feel more confident in who you are and what you are opening to, it becomes much easier to just be you. Now I find myself saying all kinds of out there things to people and I just really don't care if they think I'm off my rocker. In fact, it became good practice for me to drop on a first date that I talk to my angels throughout the day or that I was psychic and just knew shit.
Remember- do it at a level that feels safe to you. Don't feel like in an effort to "be seen" that you need to go do an hour chat in front of 50 strangers about talking to loved ones who have crossed over. On the flip side of that, I would also say to gently push yourself where you are able to. When my angels started guiding me to teach online or to speak to different groups, it was a little out of my comfort zone. But I also had so much fun doing it. Those things helped me to strengthen my confidence and to learn and expand my own knowing.
Loves y'all :)
