I recently felt inspired to explore the platform of Awaken Radio in a new way, and begin bringing you mini podcast episodes with me! While all of the previous episodes have included a conversation with a guest, this new style will simply involve me diving deep into a particular area or topic to share my own perspectives and insights.
As I had a little play around with this format, it felt incredibly freeing and creative for me and I would love to bring you more episodes like this one. I foresee this show now becoming a mixture of both episodes with guests and also just with myself.
In usual Awaken Radio style, it will all still be very in the flow with me simply bringing you whatever I feel at the time. So I hope you love and enjoy this new direction the show is heading in.
Overcoming The Fear Of Being Seen
I wanted to open up a conversation around being seen, as I know that for years I felt blocked, held back and limited from fully owning and expressing who I feel I am.
And I know I am not alone. Many of us hide our unique gifts, hold back from following our dreams and shy away from expressing our true thoughts and feeling with others.
We may fear that who we are is not ok, right, loveable or good enough. We fear the pain of rejection, judgment and criticism and so it feels safer to live out inauthentic roles and wear self-protective masks.
But I believe we all deeply yearn to be seen, not just by others, but also by ourselves. We want to know that who we are at our core – our true, authentic self – is beautiful, loveable and enough, and we want to feel the freedom of letting that be fully expressed.
And so this journey begins with you. It begins with recognising all the parts of yourself that you have decided are unloveable, that you are judging as wrong and that you feel are not good enough. As you bring these parts of you out into the light and shower them with love, you heal your relationship with yourself, and fear starts to melt away.
We are all here to be bright, shiny, unique expressions of our soul and there is no greater joy that comes from feeling that.
So, take the time to reflect on this episode and really examine all the ways you are hiding, playing small and denying your true self, and begin to identify what fears and limiting beliefs are blocking your beautiful authentic self being seen by the world.
