If you don’t live your truth, you become a shadow of yourself!
When you don’t live your truth, you become a shadow of yourself...
And this detachment from your truth creates a disconnection from who you truly are that over time turns into fear and panic of not knowing yourself and feeling like you’re missing out on your own life.
The anxiety that results from this state of being keeps you locked in to yourself and stops you from really living your life to its full potential.
The constant living of a lie and going about your day to day, repeating that old pattern of an un-lived life, knowing you are truly capable of more, this eventually takes it’s toll on your whole body, mind and your spirit.
It’s this kind of life-starvation, of depriving yourself of your own inner-fire, of what you are truly capable of in your life, that leads to having anxiety and panic attacks that start to pop up at work, in social scenarios and if you stay out of touch with yourself to this extent for too long, it eventually leads to existential anxiety and the feelings of derealisation that really SHOW you just how far you’ve managed to get yourself away from YOU.
But that’s the key.
Because you see, through all of this and through everything you are doing unconsciously in your life, you are always showing yourself something.
When life is shit, when you feel lost or scared or disconnected from the world, you are showing yourself something.
Life is a giant symbol.
Your world is always a reflection of what’s going on inside of you.
When you feel lost in your life, don’t go trying to find the way outside of you, instead ask yourself, what am I missing within myself?
If you suffer from anxiety and panic attacks, instead of blaming the situations they happen in for why you’re scared, ask yourself, how am I afraid to be ME in this situation?
Why don’t I trust myself?
Well if you’ve gotten yourself to a place in your life where you aren’t really living your truth, then what are you really living?
Ask yourself, would you trust someone who you know is lying?
So why would you trust yourself then, if the person you’re pretending to be isn’t resonating from your own inner-truth?
Your world is always a reflection of your inner state.
If you don’t fundamentally trust in who you are in a situation, that’s one giant symbol telling you that you’re not being true to yourself in your life.
So of course you’re going to be anxious and scared!
It’s time to start having your own back again!
It’s never too late to draw that line in the sand and make a difference in your own life.
It’s never too late to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and turn your life around completely!
The quality of your life is determined by the quality of the state of your inner-being.
Yes it may seem like it’s a lot of work to take the reigns of your life and start creating massive change for yourself, but really, only if you’re looking at it from the wrong angle.
You don’t have to change and rearrange everything in your life, you just have to change YOU.
Because that’s the real issue here!
As soon as you start sparking change within yourself, your life will begin to reflect that change naturally.
And then it just flows.
You don’t have to go out and apply tremendous force to rearrange everything in your life in order to change it.
In fact, if you do do this and ignore all the inner stuff that created all of it in the first place, sure your life might look like things are going on track, but on the inside they aren’t. And soon enough everything in your life will just rearrange itself back again anyway, to reflect that inner-conflict once more.
You see, you cannot escape yourself.
You will chase yourself all over the world until you turn around and face yourself!
In the words of Robert Pirsig,
“The only Zen you'll find on mountain tops is the Zen you bring up with you.”
I really love this quote, because it describes the human condition perfectly.
At some point, you have to stop and deal with yourself.
You can not outrun YOU.
And until you do, you will have lots of fun creating horrible symbolic circumstances for yourself until you’re in just enough pain to maybe give the game up and finally surrender to yourself.
But when you do that, it will be the one turning-point in your life like no other.
And I recommend doing this sooner rather than later!
Because the longer you leave it, the more painful it gets.
But when you do take that profound step in your life to face yourself and all of your drama, to take off all of the masks you wear to hide yourself and you decide to get vulnerable enough to BE THE RAW YOU and face yourself openly, there is no greater gift that a person can give not just to themselves, but to everyone around them in their lives as well!
This kind of change that you create for yourself means you finally start getting out of bed feeling like the REAL YOU.
Because it means you have freed yourself to live as yourself fully in every moment.
You release YOU!
You can just imagine what kind of effect this would have on all the old anxiety, fear and panic you used to have in your life, that was the result of being disconnected from yourself.
When you give your sense of ‘who you are’ back to yourself, it means you can confidently start to live your life to your full potential, knowing that you have everything that you could ever need already within you.
You step out of that shadow of who you were pretending to be and into the light of the truth of who you KNOW you are.
And once that light has been switched back on within you, it illuminates the way ahead so you‘re always coming from a place of inner-knowing.
It means you can just BE YOURSELF and live your life without that worry anymore.
With a sense of certainty that empowers you with your thoughts and feelings, so YOU become the author of your own life.
But to get there, you have to stop pretending not to be you.
Because YOU have all the power.
So that’s the first person you need to get in touch with...
