Do you know who you are? When asked this question most people would answer, sure I do, I am so and so I live at_______________, I love chocolate, I like to travel, I have 3 kids and blue is my favorite color. While this is part of who you are I want to dig deeper and help you to understand your true essence. What makes us, us? It must be more then just clothes, food, reproduction, and chocolate. Our senses are overloaded every second of every day with those invisible pressures of who we think we are supposed to be, To do and be what is acceptable, and lastly who you are told to be.
Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up every morning with peace in your heart Too never again ask that million-dollar question Who am I and what am I doing here? Wouldn’t it be nice to truly embrace who you are everyday all day, wouldn’t it be nice if you never again had to pretend to be someone you are not? Would you like to get rid of that hum drum boring self you have become? (I say that with the greatest love). If you are shaking your head yes, which I hope you are yay. Alrighty then let’s get right to the meat and potatoes of it.
It can be a difficult task sifting through the layers that we have created for ourselves, after all we have worked so hard our whole life thus far to make sure that we fit in, that we feel and act as (normal) as possible whatever that is. We work extra hard to be accepted by both our piers and society in general, but bottom line we simply want to be loved for who we are.
Recognize that you are a soul first, a beautiful energy that is full of infinite wisdom and who holds all the answers you will ever need. You are a 3 dimensional being mind, body, and spirit stop treating them as they are all separate entities, they are not they are all you. You are here to experience things in your way, this is your journey, not your moms, or sisters, your children’s, your boss or husbands, yours!!! And how you choose to live it is (absolutely perfect,) oh let me say that again how you choose to live it is (absolutely perfect). You are here to live, learn, grow, and expand not only your awareness and consciousness, but all of those around you.
Accepting yourself, and I mean (the good the bad and the ugly) is the first step in understanding who you are, the second step is loving yourself unconditionally. If you are so busy trying to be everything you are not you will never find who you are. Lastly take responsibility for yourself and your actions, know that you and you alone create your experience through the choices that you have already made and will make in the future not anyone else’s.
Changing your thoughts is key, why? Because you are your thoughts, your whole world has been created from thought. Courage yes great courage is needed to do this, it is not easy to stand in one’s truth, but the rewards well let’s just say they are heavenly (no pun intended)
Does it sound a little to simple? Maybe but that truly is all there is to it. our entire life evolves around thoughts, so makes sense if you change those, your world, your perspective, your beliefs, your way of doing anything and everything will change, if not well let’s just say you will stay on that treadmill always running but never really getting anywhere. We humans want to make things complicated and hard, our lives are not meant to be that way, we make them that way.
So, dig deep and peel those layers, explore, get excited to discover you. Imagine how utterly joyful and fulling your life could be. Imagine the possibilities and the Journey that could be waiting for you.
I will leave you with this, know that you already have the answers you seek, you just need to become more self-aware and learn to listen, trust, believe and then act upon it because change cannot occur without action. I hope that I have lit a small spark of curiosity that will help lead you to you.
Many Blessings, Lisa
