When you realise you have lost touch of your authenticity, it can be quite overwhelming to get your head around where to start to awaken your inner self. There may be so much that you wish to change, and you just don’t know where to start so here are a few steps to help you with that.
Don’t let yourself slide into a panic state of feeling overwhelmed. That energy will not get you anywhere. Try shift your focus to being grateful that you have removed the blindfold and can now clearly see that you need to make some changes in your life. Be thankful that you have recognised that you lost a part of yourself and be excited about the journey to come with the unfolding of you.
You cannot move forward attracting that beautiful energy which is you if you hold onto fear, panic or sadness. Acknowledge those feelings when they arise, but let them pass by, let them flow through and out of you and hold onto that feeling of gratitude.
Secondly Write it down
Get clear on what it is you feel is your authenticity, and I mean get specific
Where do you want to live?
Closer to the water? Close to the bush? Would you like a little bit of land or an apartment? And would that place be in another suburb?, another state?, or another country? Or exactly where you are? Is it the house you already reside and you only want to shift the energy within and around it.
How do you want to live?
Do you want to live simply? Do you want to be self sufficient? Do you want to travel? Do you want to get really good at cooking great nutritious food? Or do you want to be able to eat out every night at beautiful restaurants?
Do you want to go out more often? Or would you like more time to yourself?
What do you want to do for a living?
Do you want to work for your community? Do you want work somewhere that lets your creativity flow? Do you want to work in an environment with less pressure so you can focus on your hobbies? Or do you want to create your business from your hobbies? Do you want to make a huge change and delve into another career choice?
What does your authentic self do?
Do you spend more time in the garden? Go for midnight swims? Dance like no ones watching? Play a musical Instrument? Paint? Volunteer in your community? Make your own clothing? Create natural product? Get out more with your friends? Go see live music? Take a drumming class?
What does your authentic self look like?
Have you always wanted to have a little pixie cut? Have you always wanted long hair? Have you always wanted pink hair? What about dreadlocks?
You get where I am going here don’t you?
Get clear on how you see yourself living within your life. By being clear you know what you are working towards it is easier to manifest this energy as you can create a plan of action to get there.
The sky is the limit here. No limitations. Write this list as if there were no restrictions such as money, time or space.
Thirdly, Baby Steps
You don’t have to make all the changes needed at this very minute. That will make you feel overwhelmed. Throwing yourself into the deep end can be scary as hell, and make you return and retreat into your unauthenticity due to fear. So make little changes within your life. Begin to say no to the things that do not align with your authenticity, and say yes to the things that do.
If you are wanting to change your career, look into courses.
If you want to move, start looking and saving.
If you want to make changes within your self, start now.
You have to create a plan on how you are going to achieve these changes.
With change brings fresh energy, sifting through to old and welcoming the new.
Manifesting your authentic life takes action!
Lastly, work with the energy
Start working with attracting the energy to make the changes within your life, and releasing the energy that is no longer needed. You can do this by working with the energy of the phases of the moon, releasing in the waning phase and attracting in the waxing phase. You can use my worksheets free to download (click here). Using the worksheets you can keep track on your journey and make the necessary changes to re-discover your authenticity.
I want you to remember that everything you desire is achievable.
It can be hard work getting within that flow, working with the energy of manifestation, manoeuvring yourself around obstacles that pop up, understanding the lesson behind them and keeping on track with your end goal but know….
With focus you will find yourself within the flow where opportunities will present themselves to help you manifest your authenticness.
