Your Greatest Gift15.Dec.2016
Truth, Transparency and Authenticity are not just a collection of New Age buzz words designed to hypnotise or mesmerise us into a new way of being. It is the language of the soul and when we aren’t living in alignment with our soul, we will experience pain on the physical and emotional level. Pain is the bodies way of showing misalignment.
Our soul is already perfect but when we introduce toxic thoughts and chemicals into our bodies, it will retaliate and shows its displeasure. It seeks to return to wholeness before it was subjected to the negative and disempowering plethora of toxins that drain it of its vitality and wellbeing.
From my wholistic standpoint, I have covered many of the physical toxins that rob us of our authentic selves in the forms of foods, cleaning products, personal care products and pharmaceuticals, but I want to dig a little deeper into our truth of thoughts to ourselves.
The body has organs that can flush out and eliminate physical toxins to some degree and that can be easily rectified by making cleaner choices, but what about the lies we tell ourselves that slowly eat away at our soul? What lie has been holding you back from being YOU?
Accepting situations, relationships, finances, and careers by telling ourselves all sorts of justifications, reasoning, disregarding our souls desires….for what?
To keep peace, to keep face, to settle, to excuse, to justify, to avoid? All the while a little piece of our light is being dimmed each day, breaking down our body’s immune system and leaving it open for disease.
For too long many of us have believed we aren’t good enough, smart enough, worthy enough, or special enough to ask for more, to be honest with our wants and needs, not daring to dream but mostly being dishonest with ourselves.
Perhaps even being ‘grateful’ for where we are at is a comfortable excuse to never ‘rock the boat’ and expect more for ourselves. I am all for gratitude but if we are putting on a brave face and faking it, the body will know. You cannot lie to the soul.
Being honest with ourselves will open the door to being more honest with those around us and that can be very uncomfortable and confronting but necessary for emotional growth.
When we live inside the comfort bubble and do what we have always done, we will get what we have always got.
Being true to ourselves is saying no, when we mean no, and saying yes when we mean yes. Asking for what we want and to be willing to walk away if our needs cannot be respected or negotiated.
The willingness to let go of what no longer serves us cracks open the wound to allow light to heal it. Silence and suffering is a slow death sentence to our soul.
In this season of gift giving, perhaps the gift we can give to ourselves is the one of truth, transparency and authenticity, knowing it is the greatest gift we will ever receive.
2016 is known as The Year of Completion. What are you NOT willing to bring with you into the New Year?
Before the Truth can set us Free, we need to recognise which lie is holding us hostage
