Awakening to Your Self
From humble beginnings, many men and women have done great things. All it takes is a willingness to stand in your truth and not back down in the face of opposition. There will always be those who will oppose anything that is new, anything that rattles the status quo, for it takes strength and courage to be different, to be YOU.
You are each unique and special and yet you try to be the same in order to fit in and not be noticed. You feel safer and more loved when you experience the acceptance of others and yet oftentimes it is at the expense of rejecting yourself. What you do not realize is that no matter how you show up in your world, there will be those who will love you and those who will reject you so why not be who you are?
The more you live YOUR life and not the life of an impostor, the happier you will be, and the more you will experience life as pleasurable rather than as a struggle and full of pain. Pain is your measuring stick that tells you how close you are to your truth. The more pain you feel, the further away you are. It\’s like the game “hot and cold.”
As you connect more and more to YOUR TRUTH, you will experience less and less pain and struggle in your life. Let pain be your guide and pay attention to it. Ask your pain what it is trying to tell you and listen. Give thanks for your pain for it has a purpose and that purpose is to lead you back to YOU, to who you really are.
This sounds so simple, and yet I know from personal experience how challenging it can be. I grew up in an environment where I learned it was safer to keep quiet than to ever challenge what my father believed to be true. After leaving home in my late teens to further my education, I discovered that I had no idea who I was. If anyone asked me how I felt about something or what I liked or didn\’t like, I couldn\’t answer them.
Recognizing this about myself terrified me. I remember thinking, “How can I ever love someone or feel someone\’s love for me if I can\’t feel anything?” I suffered a great deal of emotional pain and loneliness. I recognized in my early 20\’s that unless I got help, I would likely feel this pain and loneliness for the rest of my life.
Not only did I seek counseling and read a number of self-help books, but I also asked God, my angels, and guides to help me. I didn\’t realize it at that time, but this is when I began my journey of awakening. It was an inward journey that continues to this day as I discover more and more about who I am and what I wish to experience in my life.
I’ve become an advocate for authentic communication and encourage everyone to speak THEIR TRUTH from their heart no matter what others may think. It\’s my passion to empower men and women to create healthy boundaries with their family so they can stand in their power and live with peace and joy.
It\’s not always easy and yet it’s so liberating. I’ve discovered that the more I express myself authentically with others, the safer they feel to express their truth with me. When I look back and see how far I\’ve come, I feel so grateful and blessed for the joyful and love-filled life I am living today.
Awakening to your self is the best gift you can give to yourself and others.
