This weekend I’ve hosted my yearly 2-day event Healing Heaven. A powerful event where participants are invited to go deep and do some intense transformational work. Of course I can’t host this and not be affected. It always invites me to go deeper as well. In the days after the workshop I felt I am invited to take another step as well. Take a new step closer to who I truly am. An ever evolving process.
It reminds me of this quote from Brené Brown:
“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real, The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.”
And that’s not always easy. We don’t always like what we see and often it’s not easy to see what’s so unique about ourselves. We tend to disregard our own light or find that of others more important or more interesting.
What makes it hard to embrace your authenticity is often one of the following:
- You don’t believe you are worthy
- You doubt what you have to offer is unique
- You have many experiences and examples where being yourself was not rewarded or did not sit well with others
- You are trying to fit in, subconsciously feeling that is the ‘safest’ option
- And for those of you with a more intuitive profession it brings up a whole lot of seed fears.
When you see this list you can imagine why it is so hard to fully be yourself. Apart from having to step out of your comfort zone it really is quite untraveled ground.
So why do this, why risk disapproval or raised brows?
Because it’s exhausting not to be yourself. You’re playing a role, and not even one you like. Well, it may feel safe and you may confuse that with enjoying what you’re doing. But you’re not actually having a great time. There’s so much more you can do, and deep down you know it.
From an energetic perspective you are stopping the flow of energy and are almost torturing it into another direction, struggling to keep control and stay on top of things. The energy can’t flow freely and not in the most direct way. And that slows things down.
Another important reason to fully be yourself is because you are unique for a reason. I want you to really take that in… You are YOU for a reason. You have something unique to offer, something that is valuable and even desirable. Your clients feel a connection with you because you are you, not despite of it. You emit this unique energy that they resonate with! That’s what attracted them to you in the first place.
‘There is a unique vibration that only you carry, the world needs that.’
So let me ask you: How can you let more of that vibration show through? How can you take another step closer towards being your true self?
I suggest you write down the first thing that came to mind. Then ask yourself the following questions:
How can I let this product/service/Ezine/picture/idea etc. show more of the authentic me?
How can I let this reflect who I truly am?
And then, just do it 😉
Don’t let your anxiety stop you. It will be so worth it when you take that leap. Enjoy!
