Have you ever messed up so badly that the only way to get out of the situation was to lie? I know we’ve all been there before – stuck, between a rock and a hard place. Wanting to be honest but fearful that whatever the truth may be, will not only set you free but leave you alone as well. I am here to tell you that anything you lose by being honest, you never really had to begin with.
“The only person we should fear being dishonest with is ourselves and that dishonesty comes from not living your truth.” -JAShaw
Three years ago while on a journey of self discovery, I found myself sitting in an alley in Toronto. While sitting in that alley, I met some of the most amazing individuals. I met a lady who could read auras and a couple who gave me life. This one man in particular, caught my eye because he looked exactly like Leprechaun in the Hood except he wasn’t as little. He was a grown man almost 6 feet tall with all the features of this creature I believed to be mythical – literally blew my mind but I was here for it. He told me he is Ganeshian, which rocked my world because I’ve been obsessed with Lord Ganesh for a while now and I just knew the two had to be related. He introduced me to his culture and told me all about his journey.
He stressed to me the importance of living my truth and introduced me to the Roman Goddess Veritas. The origin of the word (name) Veritas is Latin, meaning truth. She is the Goddess of Truth and Sincerity, daughter of Saturn and the mother of Virtue. The pursuit of truth is considered to be an essential part of Ascension along with integrity, wholeness, harmony, and clarity. To discern and tell the truth is a full-time job! Lies, Betrayal, and Deceit seem to be around every corner. Truth isn’t just about knowledge and facts; it is also about purity. In purity, there is harmony between oneself and God – we can use truth to tap into the God within ourselves. I felt as if the universe had sent that man there, to that alley to deliver a message to me personally.
At the time, I hadn’t been living my truth and to be honest I was a mess. I had been traveling for almost a year by the time, trying to find myself. I found bits and pieces along the way but there was something extremely special about what found me in that small quiet and well-kept alley. I didn’t know it at the time, but what I found was my throat chakra, my voice, and my truth! That lovely man that I wish for the life of me I would’ve asked his name, taught me life lessons that my parents or school couldn’t teach me – the importance of living my truth.
