One of the common issues I help clients with is releasing old programs about security so they can create a deeper truer form of security that is more aligned with their soul.
When clients have this issue and I look at their energy fields, I often see a mass of black in their lower pelvic area aka their 1st chakra. (Black is releasing what no longer serves us and the 1st chakra is our security center.)
For us to feel fully secure, we need to honor and be who we truly are on a soul level. When we do this, we allow our life force to flow out, express itself in the world and so be supported in being our true selves.
The inner creates the outer. Being totally secure in being and expressing our true self attracts security and support from the outside. People are drawn to our authenticity and our acceptance of just being who we are without feeling a need to impress or win approval. In doing this, we demonstrate the leadership that comes from simple authenticity.
The Inner Creates the Outer
But for many of us, feeling safe and secure in being who we are does not come easy. We get messages early on in childhood that we need to be like other people, we need to “fit in”, and we need to conform. Not doing so risks rejection by the “tribe.”
The irony is the biggest changemakers and cultural leaders in history are those who broke the rules, who went against cultural norms, and saw a deeper truth that was visible to only themselves but needed to be shared with the world.
All leaders and entrepreneurs have this spark inside of them. It is the fire in their belly that moves them to bring their innovative service or product to the world so others can benefit.
Getting Out of Our Own Way
The challenge is getting out of our own way so the new can be born. it’s not about us, it’s about our mission and our vision. Then our need for “security” fades as all our attention and focus is dedicated to bringing what we are here to bring to the world.
Here are some questions to ask yourself to help you be authentically you and live your mission:
1) Think about how you present yourself to the world. Are there ways you hold back from expressing yourself for fear you will be perceived as “too weird”? What are they?
2) What would happen if you let that different “weird” part of you out in the world? What new things would you share and express? How would others benefit?
3) Did you perhaps receive messages as a child that might have caused you shame about being different? What were they? You may have also received messages that told you it wasn’t ok to stand out and be seen. If you did, what were those messages?
4) Are those messages still true for you now? Are they getting you in your own way? How can you reframe or release them?
5) What is one step you can take right now to be more authentically you and step into the bigger vision of your life purpose?
I hope this helps inspire you to be more authentically “you” and share more of your gifts with the world.
