3-Keys to Reclaim Yourself and Live in Your Truth
Who are you? What is your purpose? Is there something that you want to create in your life, but it’s always on the back burner?
One of my favorite teachers, Almine the Seer says, “It’s time to stop watching the news and start creating it!” The fact that you have found this message or that it found you, is no accident. You are here because some higher part of yourself is asking these very questions and wanting to walk into more of who you truly are, shift the part of your life that is no longer serving you and begin creating!
Do you feel there is something missing?
Need to come out of your fog and do something with your life? Do you have a desire to really shine in the world? Feeling unclear about your next step? Do you want to be creating more meaning and fulfillment on your path?
I have been there. I had creative, life-affirming, beautiful visions and ideas that seem to stay as that, ideas.
I was only manifesting others’ ideas and visions. One example of this was when I got married and opened a café and bakery with my ex-husband and dad. I said I wanted these things, to be married and support my husband in creating some financial security for us, but I felt like the harder I worked, the more I was dying inside. This was NOT being aligned to my true purpose. The business kept me so busy that I didn’t feel life was meaningful, I wasn’t allowing my higher information to flow through me and become manifest, instead, I focused on what I ‘should’ be doing. Fortunately, the pain was guiding me to the realization that if I didn’t get out, I’d become seriously ill. I felt ripped in two because I knew there was something else that I was meant to create in my life and that I needed to help others do the same. Being aligned to your true purpose is a feeling of ease, of being in the ‘zone’, of living and feeling good. Once you make a commitment to yourself, there are 3 keys that we can utilize in our everyday lives to get us back to where we need to be; on the path of self-realization and aligned with our higher purpose
Awareness is essential to being in our highest truth. When we have quiet time each day and allow ourselves time to reflect, we receive the blessings of information sent directly from our spirit on what our next best step is. The best way to gain awareness to give yourself quiet each day. Meditation, contemplation and just allowing yourself to be so that you can open up to spirit are the most priceless things that you can give yourself. If you are constantly swirling around in the washing machine of life, being pulled in this direction or that, you are not living from your center and your life becomes someone else’s. You can learn to be in your center, in just a few minutes a day and receive your highest wisdom. It doesn’t take a lot of work, meditation doesn’t have to be difficult, and you just need to find the right form of being quiet that works for you. A good meditation program will help you feel grounded or in your body, connect you with your own higher wisdom and help you to tame the mind. We can receive divine inspiration coming to us as awareness, but them quickly talk ourselves out of them with the mind. So part of the practice is not to analyze or discount anything, but to sit in a place of neutral and observe. Intend to take at least 10 minutes a day upon arising or going to bed and just sit in silence and ask yourself what is my next best step today and intend to receive an answer. With some practice or daily ritual, you become more intuitive and increase awareness. As you get to know yourself more and more, you will come to realize that you created your life the way it is now, in this present moment, based on your choices.
- Courage to make new choices
Once we become more aware, we may realize that the way we spend our days and energy are not promoting our gifts and talents and that we may be ‘obligated’ or feel we are being used by others or the ‘matrix’. This is what awareness does; it helps us to look at the truth. What comes to us may be painful to look at, so there may be a tendency to push it away. However, it is in embracing the pain, the fear, the ‘shoulds’ and the doubts where we can gain awareness and set them free. When we push things away and suppress them, they take over and show up in our lives in many ways. Although they may seem to be out of you mind, they ooze out of your body and manifest themselves in your life. Ever heard of “Face the Fear and Do it Anyway”? Support yourself in making new choices by forgiving yourself and others. Carrying resentment and disappointment around with you is only going to attract more of it. One tool for releasing is to chant. Chanting has been used for thousands of years. In the ancient Tibetan Bon religion, sound or chanting is a primary function of clearing and uplifting consciousness. Sit in a quiet space where you can freely chant “Ah” over and over until you feel a shift. Sit in the space for a moment, feel the clarity and expansiveness. Daily practice of this will enhance your life, as it frees unwanted clutter from your mind and your life.
- Allow and Let Go
This can be the most difficult step for most of my clients when I work with them. They are practicing awareness and being conscious about the choices they are making. They are taking the action steps that put them into their new life. However, they may not see it shifting outside of themselves right away or things may be ending in their lives. They go into fear, where they must feel the fear, release it and trust! The shifts must be seen and worked inwardly world, embodied, as a habit and new neural pathway must be solidified before showing up in the physical world. When you see a few endings happening around you, rejoice! In order to receive and take part in our new lives or reality, we must release and let go of the old. It means that something better that you have been creating energetically is coming in to fill you up. Allowing is trusting that the universal force has your back and that as long as you are being and doing your part, being aware in each moment and allowing yourself to feel what is right for your highest and best good and clearing out what isn’t that, you are quickly on your way to a better life for yourself. One tool for this is to say “Thank-you” and move into a feeling of gratitude for all the things that you’re grateful for. Begin with things here in the physical and then feel it for your new creation that is coming right toward you.
