Happy & Harmonious New Year 2016 -Allowing Vunerability to be your way to authenticity

As you  ponder your life experience during 2015 and consider what lies ahead for you on 2016 lets consider the benefits of a commitment to living from an authentic living perspective.

First lets begin with a working definition of authenticity. I selected professor and best selling author Brene Brown to provide us with this understanding.

Since this definition focuses on choices we make lets consider benefits that would accrue to you by making more enlightened life choices:
  • Increased happiness.  Happiness is a result of your dreams and your reality being in alignment.
  • Enhanced self-confidence. When how you think and what you do conform to what is natural for you; belief in self soars.
  • Reduced stress. Stress is the tension between who you are, at your core, and how you act. When your actions are supported by your core values life is sweeter. Live with courage!
Brene is a researcher and focuses on aspects of authenticity; like the power of vulnerability. Here is what Brene has to say about vulnerability.
 Please invest some of your valuable time and watch Brene's TED talk video below to increase your awareness of how allowing yourself to be more vulnerable positively impacts your ability to live with authenticity!  

I hope you discovered benefit in todays post and are encouraged to see clearly that

How to Tame Your Inner~Dragons


Each of us wrestles with fear based beliefs that threaten our sense of inner peace.  This sense is found at the nexus where our dominant beliefs and feelings are found.

For this discussion, let us employ the term 'thought dragons' to provide us with a common phrase that is meant to depict areas where concerns surface, in our consciousness.

These 'thought dragons', unchecked, will challenge you to stay aligned with your authentic self; the true source of your true power.

Your permission to live from your true nature and continual focus upon your sense of inner peace will place you in vibrational alignment with the loving energy of your authentic self.

  By its nature, this alignment empowers you to challenge the fear based and false beliefs which have populated within. The source of these faux beliefs is the continual social conditioning you receive, from birth. Society seeks your compliance and dependence upon the dominant social structures of culture.

These socially conditioned beliefs are designed to get you to assimilate to the social models of your existing culture and to the belief that "resistance is futile". 

The Star Trek franchise uses the idea of 'hive-mind', The Borg, to bring this concept into the public awareness. This idea of collective thinking is the basis for how social conditioning effects your individual thought process and thus your happiness.

Within this thought context is found the notion that individual differences do not matter;  that only the collective agreements of culture are to be recognized and allowed.

Thus, the notion of diversity has become a concept with no true connection to the societal lexicon of 'approved thought'.

This collective thought or social conditioning disallows the beauty of your uniqueness to be expressed. Yet, you were created to express from this uniqueness; to add your perspectives to what is our evolving field of consciousness.

How, you might inquire, will I be able to rise above this hive-mind thinking to express from the beauty of your authentic self?

Perhaps it is through this notion:

(Noela Evans is the author of Meditations for the Passages and Celebrations of Life: A Book, 1994)

Three keys to taming your inner dragons include:

  • To acknowledge and align with your authentic self and it's unique vibrational frequency through meditation upon source energy within.
  • To focus upon unconditional love and acceptance for yourself and others.
  • To accept and embrace your 'gut feelings'; inner knowing.

Learning to Trust Your Intuition

Today's powerful thought, above, reminds each of us to develop your relationship with your intuition to a point where it is your very best and most trusted friend.

Your intuition is aligned with both your soul and your Higher Self.  

Your active acknowledgement and alignment with your intuition fosters direct contact with God/Source~ Energy and your soul's plan for this life experience.

The greater your vibrational~alignment with your authentic self the more effective will be your connection with and trust in your intuition; the soft~messenger from your soul/higher consciousness connection.

Learning to trust your intuition is a process.  When you were a young child you acted from your authentic self and after years of social conditioning you moved more toward outer directed thinking.

Outer directed thinking is fear based and is bound in approval seeking.  Inner-directed thinking is coming from the authentic place where the natural you is found,

Moving from outer to inner direction is the authentic way to happiness and inner peace.
It provides a foundation for the platform for the unique and beautiful you to express.

It frees you to be who you were created to be; where you are free to be you and I am free to me!

Being in vibrational alignment with your intuition removes you from the control of social conditioning and sets you free.

When you truly trust your intuition you are truly free from the dictates of social conditioning that has held you hostage and prevented you from living your life authentically!

A thought for you today

”Your task is not to seek for Love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."
~Rumi (13th Century Persian Poet)

As you contemplate your life, please consider the role your current belief system has in life; as you are experiencing it.

All of us are a combination of our individual guidance system from our higher-self thought the soul and the social conditioning that we experienced since birth, during this incarnation.

Thus some of our primary beliefs have become contaminated and require a cleansing and then substitution with new empowering thoughts that enhance our alignment with our authentic selves.

As you consider the life you are seeking to manifest; remember to take personal responsibility for what is stored in your bio-computer.  

You have the power to co-create a life of beauty, harmony, peace and prosperity.
Make sure that your current belief system is supporting your most cherished goals and aspirations.

The World is Awakening; as are you!

What does it mean when I say; the world is awakening?

Renown futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard expressed this notion:

"Once again a new world view is arising ... This idea is the culmination of all human history. It holds the promise of fulfilling the great aspirations of the past and heralds the advent of the next phase of our evolution. It is the idea of conscious evolution." 

 Neale Donald Walsch, American writer, spiritual teacher and author of Conservasions with God states it this way:

"A life lived of choice is a life of conscious action. A life lived of chance is a life of unconscious creation."

Merriam~Webster dictionary defines consciousness as "the upper part of mental life of which the person is aware as contrasted with unconscious process."

When you awaken to what is natural and authentic you see your world from a different perspective than what your conditioned mind has led you to observe.

Many of my former posts here spoke to how we, as humans, have become conditioned, through cultural and environmental processes that push us away from what is to what has become socially acceptable.

Through this ongoing process we lose our identify with authentic self and our interconnected world.

Ego expresses through fear~based notions and love expresses as deep connection to all that is.

Global awakening is the movement from the fear~based paradigm to the love~based paradigm that is emerging at this time.

When you are vibrationally aligned with the flow of love energy your life benefits in myriad ways including the strengthening of your inner~divine soul connection.

Focus on what you seek; not what you fear!

When you are seeking to open yourself to new experiences, destinations, goals, aspirations; the process always involves change.

Yes, if you want your life to grow in ways that keep you smiling; what you focus upon is vital.

Most of us have been conditioned, since birth, to fit in and to get along. In other words, to conform to prevailing social norms and customs.

Since you are designed to be a co-creator with God/Source Energy; to get what you require you need to stay focused on the energetic frequency of that which you seek.

When these energetic exchanges are blocked by existing beliefs from fear-based thinking; you need to substitute love~based thoughts in their place.

Along with the deprogramming process comes your need to stay focused on that which you are seeking to express.

When you are not prepared to accept the gift, you are seeking; you may well miss it when it surfaces.

So stay love~centered and focused on what you want; not what you fear!

When you maintain a vigilant focus on what you are seeking; you provide the connection that allows your personal energy signature to harmonize with the harmonic of that which you are seeking.

When you vibrational signature and that which you are seeking are in harmony; you experience what is sought in your experience.

As you align with your inner~divine; life becomes sweeter as you are working in harmony with the flow of the universe.
