4 Ways to reactivate your true self

As children grow up, they are often conditioned to stop listening to their bodies and to move away from what strengthens their heart and soul. It happens in ways you do not initially notice. Some people hesitate to believe or, never connect how their feelings influence their life choices.

At some point, part of you is aware you wish to reactivate your true self. What does this require? Does part of you say to stop something you have outgrown or start fresh? Maybe a job beckons or new training. Maybe relationships call for attention. You may shirk responsibility for financial, biological, spiritual or other reasons. Part of you realizes what you put off. As you raise awareness, details of the what and why resurface;

1) Absorb the truth in your words. You may not be used to speaking with confidence and dignity you would like to feel.  As you listen closer to your word choices, what do they tell you about youf? Are you happy where you are? If not, what next? Words are powerful indicators about balance and direction.

2) Note what is human and universal. Those situations that cause you to feel awkward, embarassed or ashamed are frequently what connects you to everyone. Each experience invites you to find humor, lightness and  delight in apparent discomfort. What bothers you is the key to releasing tension.

3) Refuse to hide. The nature of what you hide from others and repress from conscious awareness is a gauge for feelings that merit attention.  For some people, it is unacknowledged grief.  For others, it is suppressed passion or creative freedom. The decision to open up to self is a step toward being more honest with others. Revisit what you deem appropriate now.

4) Reframe challenges. What you assume will be painful, risky, tiring or not worth it, could all be your own misplaced assumptions.  How do you validate or legitimize your experience? Some people complain about adveristy to get attention, and this makes their effort worthwhile.  Other people are content in the silence of their own inner knowing that certain choices feel right.  Deeper meaning always exists.

The lesson to be gained is we need to stay true to ourselves. A wonderful reminder.

leafless, as a person rediscovers who he is, it becomes easier to understand the process of what it takes to be true to the self. Many people work backwards. Some people describe this as a form of self-induced amnesia.

Hi Liara,

I think much of the world is based on assumptions. We assume things that are not there to get things we don't want. If we assume there is going to be pain involved, we will inadvertently keep ourselves back or down. It's not until we break through assumptions that we can break through fear and feel free.

I am enjoying this process right now. Especially Refusing to hide, and Reframing challenges. I am witnessing myself as I am grow so much bigger and as I brake the old walls and frames of my ego self. Thanks for helping me see it a different way.

I love # 4!

Wonderful, Liara. The idea of refusing to hide - this one is especially resonating with me today. As I continue to be more and more open - to not hide - I do feel more connected to who I am. And that is very freeing.

"What you assume will be painful, risky, tiring or not worth it, could all be your own misplaced assumptions."

Yes, we must be childlike in our approach to risk, thereby eliminating the fear associated with them.
February 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJannie Funster
Alexys, the ability to recognize assumptions enables a person to begin to explore why beliefs are created. A person must discern something is happening before questions of why and how surface themselves. You sense you weave invisible energies inside. As you rediscover how to notice and feel them and what they mean, you take steps to stabilize, synchonize and re-align all you are.

Buddha of Hollywood, human beings discover they have options to reverse perception or recreate harmony in their lives. Much can be learned from your own energy fields and how they function. If you believe that energies flow naturally when you make healthy choices that align with the soul, then you may also come to understand that discomfort is a sign you are not being completely true to yourself. To feel drained, challenged or tense in any way is part of a process of learning what it means to rebalance, regenerate and restore energies to your sense of normal.

Jannie, babies are fearless. That is why they are perceived as being vulnerable. Feeling vulnerable as an adult is often perceived as scary and undesirable because of the associated lack of control. Children are unaware of risk until adults condition certain responses. Each person is instilled with reactions concerning what is good or bad, acceptable or unacceptable. Conflicting social messages confuse then train the mind to forget vibrations of soul.
February 22, 2009 | Registered CommenterLiara Covert
Lance, refusing to hide is something a person can do as he grows to ascertain ingrained reactions to fear. Why do people hide? Its a game ego plays with the spirit. The ego acts to conceal certain truths to prevent you from recognizing the source of your inner power. It presents you with distractions so you forget why you exist. You cover reality with clouds and evolve to bring out the sun.
February 22, 2009 | Registered CommenterLiara Covert
C.Om, the mind, body and spirit make thier own separate decisions. As a being comes to recognize this, he can also evolve to create ways to re-align to his own natural rhythms. This process is life-transforming in the now.

#4 really resonated with me.
February 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMama Zen
Hi dear Liara, These are all such juicy truths. I really enjoyed what both you and Lance wrote about "Refuse to Hide". Very beautiful. The complexities of "hiding" can often be quite intricate, humorous, unspoken and often misunderstood.

We can often think we are protecting someone else by "hiding" or not revealing the truth in some way or another, but we are really trying to protect ourselves from any number of things, but usually the bottom line is "fear of ___."

The other day a friend confessed to me something she had lied about to me and several others. After she told me, and I wasn't at all upset, she said, "Wow you aren't angry with me?" And I said, "No, why would I be angry with someone who is finding the courage to reveal their authentic self. I do not want anyone to wear lies for me. Even if they are lies already told; it is never to late to unload them and move into your authentic self. "

It was a very exciting shift for her and a very touching moment for me. To embrace human nature in all of it's complexities is such a freeing thing. To allow ourselves and others to come out of hiding frees everyone involved. We begin to realize that we are much more alike that we previously believed. We allow for our humanity and more importantly for fresh new growth. We become what we already are. Thank you, Liara.

Mama Zen, wisdom is within yourself. This post offers a gentle nudge to empower you to awaken to what you need right now. You are always welcome to share your views.

Robin, this post echos the timeless power of forgiveness. Every being has experienced fear created by their vivid imagination. How you respond reflects your level of awarenss of the truth. Some beings concoct vivid scenarios about how people will get angry or lash out at what has been hidden. I mirror your reaction. It is a very memorable lesson to learn when someone has been hurtful to you. It is profoundly llberating to forgive. Hatred does not have to teach hatred. Fear does not have to each fear. You rediscover incredible lightness of being within as you show love and compassion to negative, angry people. Many of them have never known anything else. To show them alternative thinking is priceless.
