Permission to Burn

posted in: Inspiration 3

I used to be a self-sabotager, I used to shut down in overwhelm thinking that I didn’t DESERVE better. That I didn’t deserve more. That I deserved to live in a constant state of chaos and overwhelm.


Does this sound familiar?


It takes a massive amount of self-forgiveness to find our self-worth. We are not limited to who others told us we are or are not. We are meant to be more, we are meant to do great things that no one else can do. Even when things happened to us that is not our fault, we need to forgive others of course but we need to forgive ourselves. Especially for abuse.


We often hold onto things thinking we could have done something to prevent it or stop it and that we are damaged goods. Those are not true. We, of course, did all we could and need to forgive and thank it for making us stronger, smarter, more aware and able to help others not go through the same thing. No matter the cause of us living small, we need to turn it into our strength.


Our stories are our Strengths!


If someone told you that you can’t do/be/achieve/become something, prove them wrong. Can’t sing? SING! Can’t write? WRITE! Can’t draw? DRAW! Can’t be a leader? LEAD! Follow your purpose and prove them wrong. Don’t let their limited imagination mold your life!


You see, they just were not the people you were supposed to reach with your inner message! Use them as a spring board to become what you are supposed to become, not as the bolder that you hide under as an excuse not to try! Turns out they were just a pebble in your shoe instead. Sling them out and show the world what you got!


We each have our own torches to carry that no one else can understand, except us. It starts with the fire inside our hearts that maybe no one else knows about, but it’s time to show it. We have to feed that fire with LOVE and all the things calling out to us to help it grow until it bursts out from within!




Stop living small, it’s not serving you or the world. Don’t let that fire inside go out! We are meant to be MORE! Fill your life with long burning things, love, joy, peace, acceptance, happiness, of yourself and others! Don’t allow for a second anger, hate, judgments, jealousy, or the sort into your life.


Say the two sets of words out loud and feel the difference inside!














(Eewwww that feels yucky inside doesn’t it)

These are buckets of water being thrown on your fire an giving you a thick smoke inside making us not be able to see things clearly!


Don’t expect others to understand your fire or put it out, they have their own to fire to tend to. It is their job and their responsibility to feed their own fire, we can only be examples to them. If someone is trying to put your fire out, chances are they never listened to their own and have been putting it out for a long time not being able to see through the thick black smoke inside their hearts. They feel that if they can get everyone else to play small, it won’t remind them that they are and our fire won’t re-spark theirs!





Allow that fire inside of you to burn so bright that it nearly blinds others, ALLOW it to re-spark all those fires around you! They have a mission to but need permission to burn freely! Our love and examples are what will help them give themselves permission to burn!


Be a fire-starter!


But know that their purpose is not yours and yours is not theirs! Allow them to glow where they’re supposed to glow! And the people whose ambers glow the same as yours will show up in your life, make room for them because…

Follow AngieLee Radford:
Hello beautiful souls. I'm Angielee, creator of BetterMeTribe. I'm a heart-first adventuring healer of souls. My calling is to heal the soul of the world by healing and filling one heart's cup at a time. I will teach you how to heal, fill, and overflow your own love's cup into the world, starting with the love cup inside of you. Healing and filling every area of your life so that you can overflow love into, onto, and all over others. A better world begins inside of each of us. And that is where BetterMeTribe Begins. I have had the privilege of unlocking and unblocking hearts, healing, and filling souls with the overflow method on stages big and small, in over 13 different countries on three different continents and 58 worldwide humanitarian aid mission trips. I have written eight books, three children's books that are launching soon, and this inspirational blog with over 900 heart healing posts with 50k Tribe members. I have been coaching teens and adults, one-on-one, families, groups, hosting, and speaking at events for over 20 years. But my life wasn't always like this. Through terrible traumas and a childhood that would make Stephen King have nightmares, I had to go through massive amounts of healing, forgiveness, and transformation myself. Overcoming those wounds has helped me to be able to be the best resource possible for helping others heal and use my own experiences and the experiences of many others to help as many as possible. There isn't much that someone can share with me that I have not been through, or helped someone else through. Being a natural problem solver and a deep empath, I find and pull out your strengths to become your best self. I teach you how to flow and grow through things so that you can become the beautiful being of overflow that you too were meant to be. Rising from the ashes and turning your life of pain into a life of beauty. I show people how to be love in all situations, to themselves, to others, and ultimately to the world, how to love the unlovely, even, and especially when that unlovely is us. I teach fun tools and tricks to help fill life's cup so that you are able to help others in a much bigger way than you ever thought imaginable. We can't help the sick, broken, or poor by being one of them. It is time to stop trying to serve from an empty cup running on empty fumes and overflow your own magical goodness into the world in a way that only you can. The world needs you. You need you. I need you. You are worthy of so much more than you even know, and I am here to help bring out that best self in you: transforming your life, healing one hole in your heart's cup at a time. Whatever your goal or obstacle is, I will help you flow like water through it, over it, or around it to help your soul become the majestic ocean, it is meant to be. Open your heart and allow me to pour into you, to teach you methods to keep your cup full so that you can start pouring better things into others. This is what Overflowing is all about. Allow me to overflow my love into you. Start with the search bar, search for the thing you need the most, and read those posts. Take the actions inside of them and apply them to your life. If you would like someone on one time with me, to talk deep heart to heart stuff, shoot me an email at angie@bettermetribe.com, and let's have a talk. I'm here for you. Your heart matters to me and I am here to heal it.
