I cannot tell you how much the concept of polyamory has cracked the walls surrounding my beliefs and ideas on relationships.
The idea that we are truly free and that no one has ownership or power over our person is fully liberating.
I’ve been watching a lot of videos by Conor and Brittany on YouTube. Here is one of their videos that have inspired me and opened my mind even though some resistance and fear yells and claws at me in the background:
So much inner chatter comes up for me as I breakdown old beliefs and begin to understand how to relate beyond the standard programming.
How can I learn to truly let go and embrace real freedom? Freedom from possessing? Embracing the fact that nothing and no one belongs to me but we instead meet as full beings in this plane of existence where for some time we are able to share space with one another in connection.
Connection is not possession.
You are free, dear one. You are free to experience life in all its forms without limits. I do not impose limits on you based on my insecurities and fear. I breathe into my insecurities and perceived lack. I learn to heal my own wounds without burdening you.
I am free.
You are free.
We are free. And we are love. Full, whole, complete in and of ourselves. And it’s from this space of wholeness that we meet and connect without pressure, without rules, without labels and without fear.
I have still so much to learn.
