We’re all born with this amazing capability to guide ourselves towards living the very best versions of ourselves. You see when we come into this world, as babies, we are pure positive energy and we are completely free. Free to do exactly what we want at any given moment. Need to pee? Go for it!!! Need to poop? Why wait, you’re wearing a diaper, grunt it out!!! LOL
I know this seems a little bit ridiculous, but it kinda brings you back to remembering that YOU and everyone else was born completely and utterly free. As we grow we’re taught about limits, boundaries and responsibilities and we cry, kick and scream as toddlers as limits are placed on our free time to play. The expressions of crying and screaming are our emotional guidance system (EGS) alerting us that we don’t want to stop playing. That emotional guidance system (EGS) is still alive inside of you and you know it.
Every time you say, yes when your gut is saying no – you’re denying yourself the opportunity to live as your authentic self. Do you remember what it feels like to be 100% authentic to yourself? All I have to say is once you take a chance on yourself, trust your gut and get a taste of life living authentic to yourself, there’s absolutely no going back. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying 100% of the time I’m 100% authentic to myself, but what I am saying is more and more that’s the case and it feels amazing. If you’re interested in living more authentic to you and stepping out from behind a veil of illusion, take a deep breath and read further.
When you begin to feel resistance in your body when someone is asking you to do something, go somewhere or discuss something, pay attention to that resistance that comes up in your body because that is your EGS alerting you to say NO. No, I don’t want to do that. No, I don’t want go there. No, I don’t want to talk about that. You may not know this, so I’m going to tell you. You have a right to the way you feel. You are the only you there is, therefore YOU are the only one who gets to say what is the “right” way for you to feel. The only happy meter you’re obligated to tend is your own.
So ask yourself, does this potential action spark joy in my life? If your answer is not Hell YES, then the answer is HELL NO!!! Do you want to live authentic to you? I don’t know about you, but my answer is, HELL YES!!!
