Many of us are receiving the inner call to be more authentic, express more of what feels true to us and march to the beat of our own drum.
We want to feel free to be ourselves without the paralysing self-questioning patterns that often arise when we attempt to embody a new way of being.
In order to be more of our true selves, we may need to let go of some old patterns.
We may have spent our whole life doing things in a certain way as we know it is accepted and approved of by others.
Being more of your authentic self may require you to break away from the pack, be more unique and challenge the way things have been done.
For many of us, this feels new and scary and we are not yet sure if what we are doing is right. We are so used to doing what is right for others, or what is ‘acceptable’ that we question anything that falls outside of that.
Your Analytical Mind vs. Your Authentic Self
Personally I have been feeling called to show up in a new way and express parts of myself that I have hidden away. Our old identities are being broken down, so that our true authentic selves can emerge. It is only when we mentally resist this process that we struggle.
Our mind will tell us that it is not safe to take this new step. That people will no longer love us if we express our truth. That we will no longer belong if we walk a different path. It is up to us to catch our mind’s limiting words and challenge them.
I have really had to work through my analytical mind which is jumping in to question me every time I attempt to take a new, more authentic step. It’s words cause me to doubt my truth, question my heart and shy away from the leaps I feel called to take.
I have had to return to the original feeling that arose and re-connect with it, so that I can let it guide me beyond the fear.
Video: Stop Questioning Yourself & Own Your Truth
In today’s video I share with you how I am supporting myself through this process. Living authentically is not about doing what is right for everyone else, but rather doing what feels right to us. When we do, we turn inwards for our answers and let our own unique inner voice guide us in each moment.
To Recap What I Share In This Video:
+ Your mind will question your truth when it begins to take you on a different, less conventional or more authentic path.
+ When you believe what your mind is telling you, you will question yourself, experience self doubt and feel paralysed.
+ Your work is to release the mind and tune back in to what you feel. Use what feels right to you, as your indication as to whether what you are about to do, say or create is right.
