Being more authentic means that we are engaged in things and connected with people that matter to us, that make us feel more alive, happy and whole.
It also means that we don’t allow the expectations and opinions of others to limit who we are, what we do and where our passions and dreams want to take us.
Authenticity is a choice and a commitment we make everyday, to live our own reality based on our own sense of purpose, values and beliefs, and not ‘theirs’.
When we step off the prescribed path that ‘they’ have endorsed as good and worthy, we take a stand for all that we are and we begin to forge our own identity and destiny and not ‘theirs’.
As our connection to our authentic-self deepens, we are inner-inspired to satisfy our own needs and desires. We stop ignoring and suppressing our inherent life force for the sake of pleasing ‘them’ with the hope that we will receive ‘their’ benediction, approval and love rooted in ‘their’ conditions.
When we decide to acknowledge, appreciate and understand our true self, we begin to make different choices that not only support our intrinsic need to survive but to also thrive in the adventure of being real, doing things that reflect our truth and connecting with people that resonate with our heart and soul.
Essentially, in the realm of authenticity, we transform and refresh the quality and experience of living our very own unique and beautiful life and not ‘theirs’. 🦋
Self-love is a divine illumination that liberates our hearts and minds to be an authentic force for the goodness of ourselves and others. It is the secret sauce for a beautiful life lived well.
Self-love is the transformative alchemy we are all searching for to fix our messy lives, to cast out the darkness from our hearts, to right our wrongs, to breakthrough the barriers of our misguided creations, to reimagine our destiny and to recommit ourselves to the infinite wisdom of our collective oneness – we are in this game together.
Our thoughts create our reality. If we do not like our reality, we have the power to choose different thoughts. But first, we need to understand that our reality is an intricate pattern of perceptions, beliefs, habitual thinking … Transformation begins with uprooting the source of our reality and replacing it with a truth that is in alignment with ‘what’ we are committed to experiencing.
In the instant of our first breath, we are infused with the single greatest force in the universe…the power to translate the possibilities of our minds into the reality of our world.
To fully awaken to our power, however, requires a subtle change in the way we think of our ourselves in life, a shift in belief.
Just the way sound creates visible waves as it travels through a droplet of water, our “belief waves” ripple through the quantum fabric of the universe to become our bodies and the healing, abundance, and peace–or disease, lack, and suffering…that we experience in life.
And just the way we can tune a sound to change its patterns, we can tune our beliefs to preserve or destroy all that we cherish, including life itself.
In a malleable world where everything from atoms to cells is changing to match our beliefs, we’re limited only by the way we think of ourselves in that world.
Know that we are never more than a belief away from our greatest love, deepest healing, and most profound miracles.
As I look at every aspect of my life, what personal empowering beliefs are reflected back to me [the areas of my life that I am feeling satisfied and fulfilled] and what personal limiting beliefs am I ready to transform [the areas in my life that I am unhappy and dissatisfied with]?
