This week on Record Time, The Keepers of the Akashic Records ask us:

What is your perfectionism hiding?

For me, perfectionism can sometimes feel almost like a black hole that just sucks me in! I experience it almost as something with momentum – it might start off slow, just a desire to make a last finishing touch, and then before I know it I’ve thrown the whole thing out and started over 5 times. In moments when the perfectionism gets a little intense, it can feel like a never ending spiral, trying to get things just right.

Maybe you can relate to that.

If that ever happens to you, the Records are offering us this question as a little life raft in the midst of the intensity. 

When you notice that the perfectionism has gained some momentum, and feels like it’s pulling you into its never-ending spiral, the Records are inviting us to pause and ask ourselves:

Is there something I’m trying to hide right now?

If I get this thing juuuuuust right, what part of me is it going to conceal? 

If I make my whole house look perfectly clean, then my friends won’t know that I’m actually a little bit messy! 

If I get this assignment perfectly right, then my boss won’t know that I don’t think I’m good enough for this job. 

If I wear the perfect outfit, then people won’t know that I actually feel insecure about how I look. 

This is a tender inquiry.

It has the potential to reveal tender parts of ourselves – parts that we would rather hide, perhaps even from ourselves. 

And yet, the Records are offering us this question as a life raft in the stormy seas, so we can pull ourselves out of the perfectionism, even just a little bit. 

The Records aren’t asking us to change anything that we are doing. They aren’t saying stop trying to be perfect, or even to force ourselves to stop hiding from others. 

They are offering us this question just so we can notice when we are hiding from ourselves.

We are being invited to be courageous enough to be honest with ourselves, and notice when we are working very very hard to make sure no one sees the parts of ourselves that we want to hide. Through this gentle inquiry, we have the potential to experience relief, release, and deep connection within ourselves. 

Maybe we want to hide from other people, but is there space to hide just a little bit less from ourselves?

Can you witness the parts of you that feel like they need to be perfect in order to be accepted?

That’s the invitation for today. You can receive the full Akashic Transmission on Perfectionism by watching the video below!
