Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today you are being called to clearly communicate and express your truth and what you need.
But to do this, you first need to pay attention to the energy that you’ve been putting out into the world.
Have your thoughts, actions, words, and energy been in alignment with what’s true for you?
Have you been clear on your boundaries?
Do you know what it is that you need?
Have you been saying ‘No’, to those things that dampen your spirit, or saying ‘Yes’, to those things you desire, or move you nearer to your dreams and desires?
Don’t be afraid to say ‘No’, and don’t be afraid to say ‘Yes’.
Clearly express what you mean and what you need.
Your energy doesn’t lie, people feel it when you say ‘Yes’ and mean ‘No’, and vice versa.
You’re not saving someone’s feelings but hiding the truth,
You’re not being unkind when you say ‘No’ because it’s not convenient for you.
Suppressing your truth creates miscommunication, confusion and can even lead to resentment from both you and the other people involved.
No apology, no explanation needed. Let go of feelings of should or having to.
Embrace what you do want, instead of allowing out-dated or limiting beliefs to tell you that you can’t or you shouldn’t.
Express yourself clearly and authentically.
Connect with your values, desires, and passions, and then have the conversations, start your creative project, spend time with friends, do whatever feels aligned for you.
In this very moment, just stop and pause, take a breath, as you reconnect to your voice.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Think of one conversation that you’ve been putting off.
Remind yourself of why you need to have the conversation.
Anchor into the truth of your values, your energy, and what it means to live a life that aligns with your truth.
Unspoken words and unmet needs take up a huge amount of your time and energy.
Have the conversation and free up that energy.
It may not be easy, but it will be done, freeing you up to move on with clarity and aligned purpose.
“I confidently express my truth”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy expressing your truth!
One of my clients, let’s call her Mary, came to see me and told me that she had really severe IBS, so much so that it was difficult for her to leave the house. Or if she did leave, she’d need to know where the nearest toilet was.
As you can imagine this limited what she could do.
As soon as she started talking to me about her symptoms, I knew there was more going on than she was telling me.
I asked about her life, and she gave me a shopping list of the ‘nice’ things she had. Good childhood, good education, nice house, beautiful family etc
But she just didn’t seem happy to me.
When I asked a few more questions, she burst into tears.
She told me that on the outside she had everything she was told she needed. But inside she was so miserable she just wanted to run away.
She felt guilty about wanting anything else in life, as she had what so many people longed for.
But due to pressures from her family growing up, because her family had paid for her to get a good education, she said she felt in debt to them to do what they wanted, so she never pursued her own dreams.
And now after all these years, she had lost connection with her dreams and passions, and was so used to putting everyone else first that she never gave herself much of a second thought.
And as I have come to see in my practice over the years, once you clear the emotional issues, and reconnect someone to their truth, the physical symptoms often just slip away.
The outcome of Mary re-connecting to her truth and speaking up was a happier and more fulfilled her, she no longer had the symptoms of IBS, and because she was happier and could show up more fully, all her relationships become better and stronger too, including her own family becoming happier.
