Within this busy society we can find that we lose ourselves within the day to day lives that we have created.
Then you reach a point and think ‘who am I?’ or “what is this life I have created?’.
We spend so much time running around, our minds full of to-do lists and scrolling through social media platforms that it is no wonder we find that we have lost ourselves.
We can unconsciously make decisions within our lives that we think are the right ones to make because that is what society says is right or safe or what you should be doing, and with each decision some of us walk further and further away from our authentic selves.
We need to take the time out to reconnect with ourselves and the energy that surrounds us.
We need to recognise what is right for us as individuals and what is right for the collective consciousness and let go of the pressures of society’s expectations on what your life should look like.
That my friend is where you find your authenticity.
Here are some tips on how to do that.
Pour your heart onto the pages.
Delve into the deepest parts of yourself, express your inner desires and thoughts.
Tap into that beautiful soul of yours.
By doing so you can unlock the door and remember your true self
You can find the hidden treasures within yourself, that divine spark that is you, and begin to recognise how you can piece together your authenticity.
Don’t know where to start or what to write?
Don’t stress. The important thing is that you just start writing about anything.
I promise you, you will be amazed at what ends up on the paper.
By being open and honest with yourself you will find yourself.
Meditation is a powerful tool to work in many areas of your life.
If you don’t find it easy to just sit in silence meditating, even with music or chanting playing, you may find guided meditations are the way to go.
There are many guided meditations out there (I find heaps on YouTube) that you can use everyday within your life. You can find ones to cleanse your chakras, change your throught patterns, strengthen your intuition, meditations to heal, morning meditations to set your day etc.
Meditation is a perfect way in which you can quieten your mind and tap into your intuition and let your inner you shine through. It will help relieve stress that is within your life before it creates blockages which can lead to illness.
Get into Nature
With our busy lives we forget to just get outside and soak up the energy of our earth mother.
We have fallen out of her rhythm, forgotten to hear her music.
Go to a place in nature that you connect with whether that be a park, the beach, the forest, by a lake or even your own back yard.
Find a space, sit, listen and watch.
Let your feet touch the earth to ground your energy.
Hear the sounds of our earth mother
Let her energy move through you
You will connect to your inner flow, which in turn awakens your authenticity
Creativity means different things to different people.
Whether it is drawing, painting, dancing, gardening, cooking, sewing etc, being creative allows you to access an area of your brain that we don’t always get to tap into.
It helps you to get out of the mundane mind and access your intuition.
It can also put you into a meditative / trance state.
So get out some paints or get out some pencils and create.
Put some music on and dance, let the music move through you
Get into your kitchen and cook up a storm
So what ever it is you do to get your creative juices flowing
Find your Tribe
It is so important that you surround yourself with people of like mind.
People that help you to look within, to push you out of your comfort zone.
People you can have in depth conversations with who will understand, or atleast try to understand your thoughts and feelings.
People who you can learn from.
People that see your true self and will raise you up and support you on your journey of authenticity.
If you have already found your tribe, cherish them.
Talk to them about your journey of finding your authenticity. Start the conversation as you may find that some within your tribe feel the same way and you can support each other.
If you do not have a tribe, find them.
Join groups, attend meeting and workshops, get yourself out there to meet new people and make the connections.
Perhaps within your mediations, focus on connecting with the energy of finding your tribe.
You will find that by taking the time to do the above tips, you will begin to get into the flow of your life.
You will begin swimming with the stream of your life, and not against it.
By connecting to that energy, you will find that things will happen.
You will find yourself in situations, circumstances, and events to aid with the connection of your tribe.
