The journey to authenticity is part becoming and part shedding;
part embracing and part letting go.
And Life offers a constant spiral of opportunities to level-up to our new authentic version.
I have definitely been walking the next layer of this journey myself over the last week.
It’s been incredibly challenging, frightening and painful.
Finding the courage to de-clutter this next layer of emotions, patterns, behaviours & beliefs to live the richness of my own potential.
Some of these layers were mine,
Like cloaks we put on in order to be safe, belong and be loved, we wear layers of thoughts, beliefs, patterns, habits and roles.
We collect them from our family
And we wear them often without even consciously knowing they are there.
Often it’s not until something begins to break; our bodies, relationships, mental health etc, that we can really see them, and only then if we are willing to look.
Even looking is scary,
"What might I find underneath these cloaks?”
“What if I’m unloveable? What if I’m weak? What if I’m hideous? What if there is nothing there at all?"
And at this point we need to decide if we are going to take them off…
If we continue to wear them we slowly lose our opportunities to become the fullness of our authentic selves and,
We fade away into, bitter, resentful, weak, miserable, depressed, angry shadows of our potential.
We become the living dead.
If we take them off we risk loss and pain and we face the great void of uncertainty, because we can’t really see what’s underneath until we have the courage to remove them.
We have to step into the vast mystery,
without any guarantees.
What will happen to us if we let go, if we fall?
We will almost certainly die a death of some sort or another;
ego, relationship, security...we risk all manner of things.
But in the process, we also free ourselves to expand into the next magnificent version of our authentic selves.
While I’m still in the process of embodying this new version of me, I can feel her and it’s starting to feel really damn exciting!
I hope this blog and this article in Total Girl Boss offers you some support and guidance.
If you feel to reach out for 1:1 mentoring where I can help you uncover the next more authentic version of you,
or the next program to lay the foundations of this,
you know where I am.
