We all have parts of ourselves that live in the darkness. We want to change, transform and be renovated, but that very part is usually locked up in a shell. Inside that shell, we may feel protected, but we are actually protecting the self from its fullest potential. That is the shell that needs to crack, to unlock the soul to fly free.
The shell can represent resistance. Resistance to our greatest self, to fulfilling inner desire, to love of all kinds and to the richness life has to offer. If we can find a way to crack this shell, we immediately feel vulnerable, but the crack represents breaking old habits and learning new ways to live. Embracing the newness that comes to the surface is like flying.
Acknowledge the shell in you that needs to break, look at it with courage and watch yourself emerge into the richest version of yourself.
