Being your best self. While some might smirk a bit at its inspirational poster connotations, there’s a solid psychology behind exploring and connecting to a deeper place within us. The journey starts with tapping into the heart as an honest source of guidance. Then peel off the masks we all feel we have to wear at times. The goal is to discover who we authentically area and living our lives in harmony.
The good news is it is not something we need to develop or create. It is always there. It is often just masked by the mind chatter, inner critic, and self-doubt. Those who have reached it have found a newfound sense of love and abundance.
Seeking our true nature, we find the part of us that knows true fulfillment. The part of us that has the answer without having to ask the question. Think of it as a deeper value system from which we live. How we manifest those truths may look different over time, but the underlying intention remains the same.
THE BENEFITS OF AUTHENTICITY
Living from this place has a holistic effect on our overall wellness and well-being.
Eating Well For example, it means listening honestly to the messages our bodies send us. When we are tuned into our body we are inspired to eat foods that feel good. How often do we override the body’s messages? Eating processed foods, riding the yo-yo of energy with caffeine, or eating past full? Usually, we eat poorly because we are rushed or stressed, not stopping to consider that how we are eating may be contributing to that stress.
Living from our Authentic Self, we are much more likely to honor what the body needs. Knowing what we need and when we need it. And the body often knows more accurately than the mind.
Connecting With Others Similarly, when we are disconnected from our selves we are also disconnected with others. Perhaps there are people in our lives that are not serving us, yet we continue to have a relationship with them. Maybe they are stealing our energy or not treating us on par with our worth. Living from our Authentic Self means standing in our power. It means knowing exactly who we are and therefore how special we are. It is not uncommon for our friendships to shift when we start living more honestly. It’s key to trust that in letting go of people who dim our light, we’re opening the door for people who allow us to shine.
Accepting OurselvesNot only will living from our Authentic Self inspire us to surround ourselves with people who are kinder and more supportive, but we will start to treat ourselves that way, as well. Most of the time, we are ruled by the lower mind. The part that loves to overthink and worry. The head (aka ego) devises some misleading beliefs. Bouncing between positivity and negativity. Between calming us down and riling us up. When we are living from our true nature, there is an undercurrent of contentment. A settled quality. Fear is absent, for we know that whatever is happening presently is exactly as it should be.
To live from our Authentic Self is courageous. It is a place of radical self-love. A place where we recognize our worth. Where we can finally look in the mirror and honestly say and mean, “I love you”.
So how to listen above the noise to a place of higher knowing? I’ve outlined five ways to hear when the heart speaks up and know that everything is OK and that there is a greater plan.
