Speak your truth even if your voice shakes

Speak your truth…. Even if your voice shakes…. 


Speaking our own personal narrative and truth can absolutely be unnerving at times. 

Our survival mind is hard wired to fit in, belong, and be accepted, therefore anything that goes against what mainstream society thinks or believes, or what our loved ones, family, and community believe can really push on our ego mind’s fears. 

This is why speaking our truth takes absolute courage. 

Yet that courage is impossible to find, without a deep well of self-love as a foundation. 

When we have not yet learnt the art of self-love, of deeply being able to validate ourself and see our inherent worth and value as a unique perspective of divinity, then it is hard to risk that by speaking our truth.

Self-love is the safety net that will catch you if you express your truth to someone that rejects it. 

Self-love is the safety net that will catch you if you are truly vulnerable in expressing yourself. 

Self-love is the safety net that will catch you if you lose someone’s love, approval, or validation. 

It is self-love that will hold you up, that will hold your heart, that will hold your hand and guide you forward. 


Without speaking our truth, we risk continuing to abandon and betray ourself, for safety and the need to fit in, and from my own experience of doing that for a good 15 + years, is that it is soul crushing. 

It absolutely diminishes our internal soul fire and creates a feeling of apathy and resignation of being in the world. 

We squash ourself down into a tiny box, in the hope that nobody will reject us, that nobody will speak badly of us. 

It’s exhausting and it takes a truckload of energy to suppress and push down the real boundless and unlimitedness, that is you and all of your goals, dreams, desires, and unique gifts that you are here to share with the world. 

The most liberating and terrifying part of speaking your own truth is that yes indeed, you may lose some people as a result of this, but if they did not resonate with your most authentic truth and most authentic truth, are they an aligned fit for you anyway? 

People will judge, it’s part of the ego mind’s function to figure out what is going to hurt us or help us. 

And in truth, any judgment that is projected out from one person to another is only their own judgment on themselves. 

I get it, it hurts. 

I’ve been judged many times and there will be many more I’m sure. I’ve also judged, not only myself but others, it’s something I do my best to be aware of and to come back to my heart centre. I know it’s only when I’m most scared when I’m operating from my ego-mind, that I judge the most, it’s part of being human and that’s ok too.

But knowing how to set yourself free from the pain of judging yourself, judging others, or feeling judged, is a true gift. 

And it will help you to express yourself more freely. 

When we become bound up by the fear of judgment and what others will think, it’s like wearing a straight jacket. We feel we have no choice but to conform, to keep quiet, to not speak up, to not speak our truth, to not be who we truly and authentically are. 

This is so exhausting, to be tiptoeing around others that you do not resonate with or are not aligned with. 

It’s exhausting to keep suppressing yourself.

It creates so much burnout by not being your authentic self because it is so exhausting to have to wear a mask constantly to feel that you fit in. 

This is when we end up placing ourself, or staying in situations that are a complete betrayal to our real core authentic self. 

We stay in jobs that are not in alignment with us and our values,

We stay in relationships that are not a good fit,

We stay in situations, circumstances, and friendship groups that have us hiding our true self and nature away.

You are a unique and vital piece of divinity, here to express your uniqueness, your preciousness of the truth of who you really are.

Nobody else can do that.

It is your gift to the world.





The world needs you now more than ever, to stand in your authentic truth and power.
