Wyrd Bliss – Part #1
Trust your Wyrd. Then follow your Bliss.
“Wyrd” is a concept about fulfilling your special personal destiny by making choices that nurture and authentically express your different spirit — your unique Inner Fire! It is what leads you to your bliss. In contrast, the life and work you create — and make do with — by playing down, ignoring or trying to hide your “weird” leads you away from it.
Interestingly, “wyrd” is the origin for our terms weird and word, which I think makes it a beautiful expression to use for people like us.
Of course, there are reasons for feeling uncomfortable about being different. “Weird” isn’t a word that is typically used to express awesomeness and appreciation. And nobody likes to be put down or dismissed — especially when you are the smart, capable, responsibly contributing, loved and loving person that you are.
Here’s what I want you to know
You are designed differently so that you can make a difference. Trust your design!
Other terms for “wyrd” are self-realization. And self-actualization. Fancy pants way of saying you are living into your full potential. It means you appreciate yourself, and trust your unique “design” to take you where you most want to go. Because it will. Guaranteed.
Instead of abandoning your “wyrd”—your truth, your nature, the gold that funds your true purpose in being here–maybe it is time to actually run toward your “weird.” Maybe that is what you must do in order to keep your “word” that your life matters and you intend to make a difference while you are here. NOW.

HONOR YOUR DIFFERENCES
When you hear anyone dismissively say “everyone is unique” — as if your gifts are nothing special, then you know they are not of your particular soul tribe. Not that everyone isn’t good folk in one way or another, to be respected and honored. It is just that the dismissal is the “tell” – letting you know not to measure yourself by these comments any more. There is a better way…a much better way.
You know that crazy heart of yours? The one with lightning crackling and moonlight shining through it. The one you’ve been told not to trust because it often led you off the beaten path. The one so many have misunderstood your entire life. Trust it. Feed it. Grow it. It’s your greatest treasure and will point the way to your highest destiny. It is the voice of your soul.
