Good Day friends! I hope as you read my words to you, that you feel worthy, loved, and supported, because YOU ARE!
Lately I have been hyper-aware of the importance of really speaking our truth, being who we really are, and as a result, allowing our relationships, experiences, and circumstances to begin to mirror that authenticity. Most of the time, the majority of us are walking around trying to be and say and do what we think others expect from us or require of us. We do this because of a deep core belief that tells us we are not good enough the way we are and therefore we better figure out how to pretend like we are good enough so no one finds out that we are not. Well this is a load of CRAP.
Each and EVERY single one of us are gurus.
We ALL carry an important message to share with the world. There is not any one of us that isn’t special, unique, and absolutely necessary on this planet! BUT, somehow we have gotten confused. At some point, we got the wrong interpretation of things, and we came to believe the opposite was true. We came to believe that someone else knew us better than we did, that someone else was smarter than we are, and that someone else must deserve our personal power more than we do.
You see, we cannot possibly deliver our gifts to this world if we are too busy trying to be something that we are not. We are so caught up in TRYING to be good enough, that we completely disregard the gifts that we are capable of offering WITHOUT TRYING!
When you and I stand in our power, when we speak our truth, and when we feel comfortable with who we really are and therefore bring our real selves into every situation, we deliver a level of value that just comes naturally.
It is so easy we don’t even know we are doing it. This can throw us off. When something is so easy, we tend to think it’s not special, because we don’t have to work hard to do it. However, YOU may not have to work had at delivering that gift in particular but that is because it’s YOUR gift to share. Someone else has a different gift, and thus yours does not come easily to them, THEIRS does. This is why it is SO important to speak our truth and be who we really are, because NO ONE else can do, be, and share what we can.
Even if two people have the same passion, work in the same industry, and deliver the exact same services, they will STILL be different. Why, because what we do is an extension of US, and every single one of us puts a different spin on things when we are being natural and organic. In other words, it is ONLY when we are comfortable in our own skin, and therefore no longer hiding behind someone else’s fear, doubts, beliefs, ideas, and thoughts, but are standing in our own truth, beliefs, ideas, creativity, and power that we actually shine our light and share our gifts FULLY.
Relationships depend so much upon the part of us that we actually share, the way in which we show up, and whether or not we can be who we REALLY are or not. In fact, everything depends on this. Our ability or inability to be who we really are, can and will determine the amount of emotional freedom, deep peace, and inner happiness we get to experience on a daily basis.
There is NO SUCH THING as freedom without emotional freedom.
A client and I were processing this very thing yesterday. She kept believing that by achieving more clients, more money, and expanding her business, that she was moving forward and would therefore gain more freedom. But this is not how it works. What’s happened instead is she made some big movements in her business life, but inside she has never felt more limited, restricted, and trapped.
Emotional freedom is an INSIDE JOB.
This cannot be attained or achieved through external movements. We must make some internal shifts to have real freedom. This is the same with rest. We can lie on the couch for days, sleep for hours and hours, but rest is ultimately an INSIDE JOB as well. Quality rest, which is the only kind that can rejuvenate and restores us, comes from finding that internal place inside where we can rest, be still, breath, find the quiet and the calm, and reset.
I am sure many of you have experienced this after going on a holiday or a vacation. You go to “rest” and to have some “freedom,” but what happens is the schedule takes over and you are busy the whole time, and even if you “relax” and “do nothing” each day, there is still a part of you that comes home feeling a bit tired, as though you didn’t really get the “rest” you were hoping for, and less than ready to go back to your daily routines. This is because when we come at things from the outside, we will only ever have partial and temporary results. Not ideal right? Me thinks not :):)
So, how can you begin to speak more of your truth today? Do you know who you REALLY are beneath all the layers of pretending and hiding? Can you begin to trust, that the very parts of yourself you have felt the need to suppress are actually the parts of you that when you show and share them, will help you to finally feel deep peace, love, and happiness?
