Why hiding won’t help you get what you want

Some species of insects, animals, and plants survive by blending into their environment. The idea is that if they don’t stand out too much, nobody will notice them or try to eat or otherwise interfere with them. They hide, in plain view, by matching to their surroundings.

There are also those colorful species that are not afraid to be seen, and in fact welcome being noticed; peacocks, parrots, zebras, and Lady Gaga, to name a few. It takes a certain ownership and also feeling safe enough to be seen in order to stand out in the crowd.

If you are trying to create success for yourself, your business, creations, and other offerings – hiding may not work. In order to attract what it is you want, you’ll need to step out of the shadows at some point and let others notice you. What’s more, you’ll have to say, “here I am!”.

Yes, it’s somewhat dangerous to be seen, to create a higher profile than the one you had before. What happens when you stand out is that people notice you. This may be what you wanted to begin with, but you may not have been aware of what happens when those attention points begin coming in. Yes, success can come with, and so can criticism, judgment, and well, now you’re just not blending in anymore!

You may want to learn how to protect yourself so that you feel safe with the new energies. There’s nothing wrong with those energies, it’s just that they passed you over before. In fact, you may have been fine with that, because you weren’t ready to be seen yet. The trick is handling all of those attention points you have manifested.

What do you do to stay well and safe, while still being seen?

The most important thing you can do is to know yourself, and love what you know. You don’t have to be perfect, or defend yourself for being you. If you find yourself on the defense against anyone else’s judgment or criticism, learn how to let that go. If someone else is judging you, that’s not your problem, it’s theirs.

You can also learn how to ground yourself. A daily meditation practice will help you to stay centered and calm within yourself. The better you know and love yourself, the more grounded you can be. The more you can let go of the energies coming in that aren’t yours, the easier it will be for you to be seen and enjoy it.

  1. Another winning blog post Kris.

    And I love the picture. BTW, I don’t know if you know, but that’s a praying mantis. THe pic is labeled grasshopper. What I’m finding humorous is that I just came in from the back forty where I saw the first praying mantis I’ve seen this season. Beautiful, iridescent green creature, running away from me as fast as possible across tall grass.

    I notice what I notice and sat down to see your post with the same creature prominently displayed.

    Best to you,
    Bonnie

    • Fun story, Bonnie! Thank you so much for reading and for your comments.

      Thank you also for reminding me that it is a praying mantis. In a hurry to label some photos, I mislabeled that one. I love that shot, and all of the work by that photographer. She does some amazing macro nature shots, many in her own garden.

  2. It’s a great blog post, and it definitely brings up an important point: letting go of energies that aren’t your own. That’s a whole level of deftness that it can take some time to get good at. I’m very aware of things that aren’t mine, but still some stuff gets attached. Then I have to go dig out the little hook that that energy grabbed onto in me.

    And on another note, it’s so important that spiritual thinkers and knowers begin to step out and be seen to light the way for others. Thank you for standing out for all of us. =)

    • Thank you, Jim. I am always grateful to those who inspired me and lit the way so that I could find the courage to do the same. We each do this for ourselves and also for anyone else who wants to heal. It’ll be really fun to live on a planet filled with more aware, happy, conscious, clairvoyant, people! That could be anyone – all it takes is the desire to have it, the will to do the work, and the ability to let go!

  3. That was a message I certainly needed to hear today!
    I’m in a situation where my voice is not being heard and I wasn’t sure how to deal with it. So your message was a wonderful gift. I’ll have to boost my courage and keep trying.

    Thank you!
