In Why You Need to Become the Leader Part 2, WU World Changer Hilde Larsen shares 2 more tips to help you step up to owning your life and true essence. Late joining this series? Catch up on Part 1!
This is part two of a two-part series about why YOU need to become the leader. And I don`t mean a leader at work. I am talking about something far more important to your health and life in general.
In part one, we discussed two of the reasons YOU need to become the leader. Here are the following two:
YOU choose where you want to go.
The power we all hold within us holds the unlimited creative power. It all starts and ends with you. Your intention holds your true healing mechanism, and as long as you breathe, you will be.
Tap into that creative power. You don’t get what you want; you get what you are! We all have lessons to learn, and lives to live.
We are amazing beings that hold a choice to create by living. We are creating with every single thought and feeling. Even when seemingly doing nothing we create. That is how powerful we are. So much so, that we become fearful of it. It might feel safe to be inferior at times; it holds less responsibility and less accountability. But guess what, no matter what you live and create, it is still all you.
Good or bad, it’s all you. Are there outside forces? Sure, there are many of them, but do they hold power over you and your life?
No, they do not.
When you lead, follow.
No one else is going to experience the effect of your choices. You hire, you fire. You make the bed; you lay in it. Cause and effect.
There is empowerment in knowing that nothing but you is needed to step out to live your optimal life experience. There is freedom in knowing there is nothing outside of yourself that can have real control over any part of your life. To come to this realization will set the stage for the rest of your life, as every evolvement and growth starts with the acknowledgment of self-responsibility.
Let me share with you a small portion of my healing journey, from the book “From HELL to inspired:”
“I was done being sick, and I was done struggling. I was so filled up with medications, hospital visits, anxiety, and pain that I decided to stop. I had been diagnosed with severe rheumatoid arthritis several years before, and was heavily medicated – I was told that I was a “severe” case. The diagnosis of Lyme disease, ulcers, anxiety and more, were not helping my suffering soul and spirit. The medical society tells you, you will be sick for the rest of your life, and that medications will be your only hope to live as “normal” as possible. What they do not tell you is a very different story, and what they do not know – might kill you.
This one day about ten years ago, I had had enough. I remember thinking, “I will stop all medications and just lie here until I get well, or I die.” I really did not care which, as long as what I was experiencing stopped. From being a mother, a sister, a wife, a business owner, an athlete, and a friend, I just became sick. My world changed overnight. I was alone, and I did not know what to do to save myself. As soon as I stopped the medications that made me very ill, I got more ill. Now, my body was showing me just how sick I really was.
A long journey started, a lonely one, filled with pain, fear, and hopelessness. Every day was a battle for survival. My heart did not beat regularly for years. I was bedridden, and could not even go to the bathroom by myself, not for several years. I could not open my mouth or chew foods, as my jaw was too inflamed. I often prayed that I would not wake up in the morning. Watching your body deteriorate, and your joints slowly cripple, is a challenge for the mind, the emotions, and the soul.
Something inside me told me that health was there if I would just let it come forth. I studied all day, every day. I spent all my time searching the Internet, reading books and watching videos. Slowly my way of thinking changed, my diet changed, and my connection to my spirit opened up. Friends left, and new amazing souls came into my life. It is hard for family members and friends to understand, and to know how to help when someone gets very sick. Change is often felt as a scary thing, so never blame them for not being there. They do not know any better.
Along this journey, I have seen stones turn into diamonds, I have seen life become magical, and I have seen my body transform before my very eyes. How amazing is that? As I look back, I can see the true gift in my ongoing journey from HELL to Inspired. I made a choice, and I followed my inner guidance. The gift was hidden to me but is no more. It is now shining as my true purpose.
Now, all these years later, my heart is beating perfectly and the anxiety is gone. My digestion is back to normal after 20 years of ulcers, and my skin looks better than it has in years. I am not stopping until my body is 100% healthy – and beyond! And they said it could not be done! NEVER let anybody tell you that. Not your family, friends, NOBODY! This has been my biggest gift, and I would not be without this journey.
The NOW moment is where the magic is, and for those of you that struggle with health issues, KNOW that it is in your hands to change. Your body is made to be healthy, it’s what it is designed to be. It is all vibration, and it’s all connected. Stop poisoning it, and start nurturing it. Change your thoughts, and your emotions will follow. Clear out the toxins from your body, and the mind will clear. Your vibration will rise, and your consciousness will rise. Align your focus with the solution, not with the problem! Speak what you want, and expect it to happen. BE the change you want to see, and love yourself the whole way there. Nobody is perfect, in fact, perfection is an illusion, and it does not exist. YOU are the perfect YOU!”
By realizing that you are in charge of, and responsible for your own life and health you are activating your power. It never left you; it is who you are. The life that we live is colored by every single choice we make; even a thought is a choice.
Your power is so much stronger than your mind, and your inner light and ability to heal and restore is grander than you can ever imagine. No person, no single event or circumstance can stand in the way of your ability to choose life. The inner strength that we all hold is released when we allow it to be.
Your life is your responsibility and your business. Power up and act like it!
It all starts with knowing that you are the only one you have been waiting for to untangle the knots and false beliefs in your life. Still, we are all in this together.
The pitfalls of feeling that you are the boss of your “from-now-on” experience, is feeling lack of support and inner strength in this moment. Never mind, don`t worry. Your power will come forth so strongly; it will leave you breathless. It will blow your conscious mind and open the floodgate of joy that you hold within.
It will show you how beautiful life is, and how numbed and far you have wandered from your truth.
It does not matter, any experience, what you have lived, dreamed or seen. It does not matter what you have tried or not tried, witnessed or been subject too. It does not even matter if you feel lost, out of resources, sick, tired and hopeless. It all starts with you and your willingness to pause and say; I am going to take back my power.
I am going to own my life and I am going to get to the bottom of what it is that is holding me back.
Repeat after me:
“My life is my own, and I am the one, the only one I have been waiting for!”
As you step up to owning your life, you will no longer be held back from expressing your true essence and talents. We all have them.
