What does it mean and how do you do it?
We live in a world where we are conditioned from an early age to be aware of and to lay store by other peoples’ opinions. We are rated at school; we go to college or University and we are rated and judged by the level of degree we get; we go into the workforce and we are rated according to productivity, judged and paid accordingly. How many of us choose partners who are approved of by our families and close friends? It goes on and on. The house we live in, the car we drive, the clothes we wear, holidays we take, measuring ourselves against and comparing ourselves with others – it is truly never ending. And in the middle of this we lose sight of who we are.
So, take a step back and have a good long and honest look at where you fit in to your own life. For most of you this will be quite a challenge and probably something that will require several visits to make sense of. But once you start to be aware of the areas where you are living someone else’s agenda then you will be fascinated by rediscovering your true self and you will go forward to live your best life!
There are many steps you can take and a good starting point is with developing a sense of unconditional love for yourself. This step includes forgiveness and begins with forgiving yourself. This may be forgiving yourself for things which you think you have or have not done. For not following through with plans and dreams – perhaps you forfeited those along the way as you ‘grew up’ and became a ‘responsible’ adult. That’s okay as you were simply doing what you thought best at the time and the good news is that it is never too late!
You will most likely feel anger rising inside you and this can be confusing. Maybe a sudden anger will flare up at people who encouraged you on paths they they considered best for you even though it didn’t feel right to you. Remember they too, were probably doing what they thought best at the time so acknowledge your anger, validate it and then you will be able to let it go. Acknowledge also old unforgiveness, release it and let it go and send love to those who have hurt you. This is challenging for sure but an immensely powerful thing to do. Carrying around hurt and unforgiveness only weighs you down whereas appraising it from a new perspective and letting it go is very freeing and you move forward feeling much lighter.
Focus your thoughts on good things and rise above all that appears otherwise. Speak your truth, when it feels appropriate to do so, without putting yourself at risk. What others think does not matter – as long as you express yourself with love then you have nothing to worry about. These changes in the way you present yourself may be difficult for some people at first but it is important for your growth that you continue in your truth. Gently and with due care…with relaxed intensity and consistence.
Hone your senses and develop your psychic ability. By spending periods of time in stillness you will become more aware of the power of your senses and then you will be able to refine them. Thus, you will trust yourself to read between the lines: hear the unspoken; see the unseen…and listen with your heart. In this way your intuition will sharpen and your ability to feel the auric energy of others will become stronger.
When you develop these very natural abilities your relationships will improve. People who are no longer sharing your path will move onto another one and others will join you as you grow and develop. Remember that you are a child of the Universe. You are a Spiritual Being living in the Temple of a Physical Body so it is essential that you nurture both aspects. Walk barefoot regularly on the sand or in a field of grass. Connect with Mother Earth who is here to care and look after us and in so doing you will have the foundation to reach up and connect with Father Source – the Divine Energy which created you.
When you learn practise these steps life will become clearer and everything will make more sense. You will be clearer on your unique purpose in life and you will become a powerful energy and influence on others. Treat this with the utmost care… like a flower petal in your palm, life is precious and people are fragile.
Being true to yourself is the most powerful example you can set and the most powerful legacy you can leave behind. You are a unique and wonderful human being – a unique and wonderful spirit. Go forth into the rest of your life and Be True to You.
