The Wise Woman Of Wonderland: “Integrity, Compromise”
“The Wise Woman Of Wonderland brings integrity to thought, word, and deed. She lets you know that as long as you are in the flow of honesty and being true to your word, she keeps you under her protection and care.
When she appears as your Ally, she signals a time when honesty pays off, yielding greater dividends than you expected. You will be thankful that you remained faithful and loyal to your path. She reminds you that compromise is not always an option. Stay true to yourself first and foremost. Although it may appear that you could lose something as a result, you can never lose what is truly yours.
When The Wise Woman Of Wonderland appears to you as challenger, this is a sign that you may have compromised yourself out of fear. Have you been in denial about the truth of your situation? Have you sol yourself short rather than ask for what you really need? Have you given up your dream for another because you fear abandonment?
The Wise Woman Of Wonderland is gently reminding you that you count. Claim your good and never settle for less. Be fearless and make it so! Why hang around for more disappointment when wonderful adventures and opportunities are waiting to unfold for you?”*
~ By Colette Baron-Reid
When we think of putting ourselves first, we think of being selfish. If you are a people pleaser, you may feel very uncomfortable with the idea of putting yourself and your needs first (believe me, I get it!) But this is part of the shifting of our perception. Our own needs and deep desires must be supported for us to be truly happy, joyful, and at peace. We cannot attempt to compromise our own values in order to make someone else happy. It must be a balance.
Of course there are many compromises when we are in relationship, be it family, friendship, business or romantic. We often do need to meet half way; but note that BOTH partners are meeting half way, not one person bending over backwards while the other calls the shots. Not healthy. Yet there is such an imbalance in the world; in the polarity of the power of the sexes! On saying that, we may find that the male and female can be archetypes and do not necessarily mean that it is an actual man or woman, rather a power imbalance by two people exhibiting the amplified qualities of each.
Where are you compromising your own integrity in your life? Where are you not speaking your truth? What are you afraid of? And why are you stuck in this situation? Can you start to take action in finding a way to put yourself and your needs as a priority in your own life without experiencing guilt or shame?
You deserve to be happy. You are worthy of love. You are being called to your Soul Path, to walk and talk your truth.
And so it is
