Ever Present Reminders

We do in fact connect to our inner truth, our soul’s guidance through the whispers of our hearts. And they do keep coming, even if we ‘miss one’ along the way. But I’d like to focus today on another way that we are always being reminded of who we are and our ability to choose to live authentically.

People and situations will enter our lives on a daily basis, bringing to us the opportunity to reassess what we believe to be true–both from the perspective of our ingrained, tribal beliefs as well as from the reality of our life as it is today. What we have grown up believing as true may not be ‘true’ from this perspective as grown, conscious adults. Too often we continue living in our childhood realities, allowing what was ‘true’ then to color our present.

For example: when we were children, many of us felt ‘bad’ if we upset our parents or other authority figures in our lives. As adults, this can translate into being very cautious about letting ourselves speak out loud, be seen in the fullness of who we are–for fear of upsetting someone we care about or with whom we feel a connection. We revert back to that childhood feeling that we’ve made a mistake and must not upset them. When in reality, we are grown adults with the ability to assess what is true for us today, to tap in to our own inner voice and choose from that space. And that space, my friends, is only about us and our relationship to the Divine.

Our choices as mature, conscious human beings are meant to be guided by our own intuitive knowing and guidance, our personal standard of ethics and the compass of our integrity. This is how we step fully into our power. As long as it’s about someone else’s opinion of our choices, we are always giving our power away, robbing ourselves of our true, beautiful identity as Divine beings.

We have them every day: ‘ever present reminders’ of who we are. They are in the whispers of our hearts and the most ‘ordinary’ moments of our lives.

Love to all..xoxo

  1. Jackie~ we must be willing to evaluate ourselves and readjust to what we find. Living by our own lights is not always easy but definitely worth the work. Thanks for a great post.

    1. Yes, Paige, definitely worth the work. I prefer to live authentically, being true to my fullest self and potential. With Steve Jobs passing yesterday, they played a piece of one of his speeches today, and I loved what he said: ‘Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow seem to know what you truly want to become.’

      Thank you for being here….love to you. xo

  2. AMEN to that Janece! And I know you ‘get it’ as one of the women I see who really are willing to let go of old patterns and step fully into the beauty of herself–regardless of what others might think. I like that–‘authenticity thief.’ xoxo

    1. I really connect to this piece Jackie .
      this is what really moves me
      “When in reality, we are grown adults with the ability to assess what is true for us today, to tap in to our own inner voice and choose from that space.”
      To make that Inner Voice heard authentically and with true transparency for ourselves alone and then with others if we choose. Beautiful Piece …….

    So true, Jackie. I like Paul Coelho saying that “If everybody loves you, something is wrong. Find at least one enemy to keep you alert.”

    People pleasing is an energy thief. It’s also an authenticity thief. It’s only when we’re willing to stand in our own truth, regardless if the crowd likes it nor not, that we know we are fully ourselves 🙂

I always love to hear your thoughts....xx
