3 Things To Release Right Now
What if I told you you don’t need to become someone BETTER, but simply need to peel off the heavy layers so that you can finally become who you’ve always been?
The profound simplistic truth of today’s message is one I share often with my clients and is also forming the basis of a transformational eCourse that I am working on.
It’s the concept of coming home to yourself; of knowing that everything you’re looking for – health, happiness, peace, success, more of this, that and the other – lies not in stuff, or acclaim, or even other people, but in recognising that the light within has been burning steadily all along… albeit with a few dusty blankets thrown on top.
Let’s flick them off. Right now, here together.
Below are three things you can release today so you can return to that all-knowing centre and glow like you wanna glow:
1. The fear of saying no
Saying no with zero excuses, zero little white lies, just a clearly expressed unfortunately I’m unable to, is one of the most liberating, and loving things you can do.
Exercise your no muscles. If you don’t want to go to something, then don’t do it.
When I’m on the receiving end of a gentle but concise no, my response is always a virtual high five and a silent: “thank you for being a shining example of nourishing boundaries and unfettered, uncomplicated truth. I respect that.”
In order to be your best self, you have to say YES to YOU first.
Flex your self-love muscle and exercise your right to choose yourself. This way, you are showing up to the world as your full self and you’ll be able to stand in your truth.
Self confidence is magnetic.
2. The fear of being judged
Worrying what others think combined with fear of their judgment is one of the biggest things that I see holding people back from doing what they really want.
Try this on for size: next time you walk into a room, front up to an interview, or step on stage, repeat silently in your head, “I love you, and you love me.”
This isn’t an ego mantra, it’s universal connectivity in motion and takes you to a place where you approach everyone that shimmies into your sphere as a comrade, a friend.
3. The fear of failure
When we have a fear of failure and we try to avoid feeling disappointed we will keep ourselves, our standards and our dreams small.
But here’s the thing: life is an experiment, so mess up, go wild, and make sure you tell us about it.
We must up the stakes and ask for what we really want.
Go after it unapologetically. And if you don’t reach it, so what?!
You’re not here to “arrive”.
You’re not here to be perfect.
You’re here to grow, and enjoy life.
Mary Oliver had it right when she shared:
“When it’s over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.
I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.”
Be the bride/groom. And keep shining (bright),
P.S. What are you truly ready to release and claim for yourself in your life? (It’s okay to only be ready to be ready.) I’d love to hear from you. Hit the comments and let me know!
