Are you committed to living from the truth, integrity and congruence of who you are?
This has been one of the hardest lessons that has been presented to me again in life and can often mean making some of the hardest decisions in order to live into my own truth.
Living from that place of integrity means getting totally honest with yourself. It means taking time to know who you really are, what your deepest desires and values are and creating your life in a way that is in total alignment to this.
It takes absolute conviction, courage, true strength, a truck load of courage and massive amounts of self-love and self-respect.
It can mean walking away from businesses, careers, material things, people, events and circumstances that even though you love or feel comfortable or a sense of security or familiarity with, you know in your deepest of hearts that it’s not in the fullest integrity and alignment of who you are.
It can mean feeling that you are massively letting people down that you love deeply, it can mean risking facing rejection, abandonment, withdrawal of love. It can mean getting laughed at, made fun of or being thought a fool. It is risking everything, to follow the guidance of your own heart and to leap into the unknown, the unfamiliar, but somehow trusting in the gap.
And it can be terrifying to make the leap. Often it can feel as if your world is crumbling down around you.
I’ve been tested again and again to stand in the power of my own truth. What’s right for me and what’s not ok for me and you’ll know your own boundaries as things won’t sit well for you emotionally.
If you are living from a place of burnout, feeling upset, sad, depressed, anxious, fearful, angry, resentful, reactive, frustrated or annoyed, that is all feedback. It’s gifting you with the knowledge that something is off, something is not ok, whether it’s your belief system, how you are perceiving an event or circumstance or perhaps it’s no longer how you want to be living, or what is truly right for you. Only you will know the answer to that.
Stepping into your own truth, getting deeply honest with yourself is the most loving thing that you can ever do, not only for yourself but for everyone around you.
It’s also taken me years to learn that the highest choice that I can ever make from the place of absolute love, is that which produces the highest good for myself and to accept that and know that, give myself permission to do that and not feel guilty for that.
For we are taught in society that to be truly loving, is that which produces the highest good for another and often comes at the expense of ourself. This is not the truest form of love if it actually is harmful or detrimental to ourself or creates feelings of anger, resentment or anything else other than love.
I know when I’ve made the right choice for me, it becomes an expression of love not only for myself, but also for others. When I’ve owned my truth and expressed what my own needs are then, I naturally can flow so much more love to others. It’s not forced, it’s not tied up with obligation, have to or need to. It comes from pure and absolute love. It feels free, so easy to give and it feels solid within my own integrity.
Living from the guidance of your own heart will always, always set you free.
My ego/survival mind hates it, it fights against it often and can sometimes be the loudest voice in my head. As often what my heart and soul is asking me to do, is sometimes so unsettling to my ego. It terrifies it, as it’s what happens when you are truly growing and evolving. It often involves huge changes and risking it all and the ego/survival mind is only ever concerned with keeping you safe, small and secure.
However, your heart, your soul’s guidance will never give up on you. It will just keep whispering your eternal and internal truth to you again and again until you are ready to hear it and until you are ready to live into it.
There is never any pressure, there is never any have to or need to when living from your heart, however, the signs in your life will just get louder and louder until you choose to pay attention, take notice and listen to your own truth.
It does take true courage and all of my past experiences have also meant that I love, cherish and respect myself at a deeper level, because of the integrity and congruence that I choose to live into.
You deserve your own respect and love.
You deserve to live a life that is in absolute alignment with the truth of who you are.
You deserve to do, be and have the things that truly light your heart up, that expand you, that give you energy, that inspire you, that help you step into the next level version of yourself.
You deserve to love yourself and do what is right for you.
With Love and Blessings,
Always in All Ways,
P.S. The biggest factor that I’ve seen that contributes to burnout is not living in congruence with our own personal truth.
When we say yes to things, but in our heart really mean no. Or when we don’t allow ourself to speak up, or to give ourself permission to truly live the life that we want to be living, due to all sorts of limiting beliefs and disempowering narratives that you’ve held onto from the past, then all of this combined leads to incredible fatigue and exhaustion in the body. Most often hitting people when they have been through a period of long-term stress in their lives, be it a relationship, financial, or health, then coupled with one or two major life events on top of this.
If you are exhausted, if you are waking up tired, no matter how much sleep you are getting, this is a MASSIVE RED FLAG. Your body is letting you know that what you are doing is not sustainable.
Your body is letting you know that things absolutely need to change and often the first thing that needs to change is our belief, that it can change.
If you are exhausted and tired, and just know in your heart that you need to draw a line in the sand and stop this crazy cycle, then please make sure you book your 12 Week Health Blueprint Complimentary Call, to once and for all, overcome burnout and exhaustion and reclaim your health and your life again.
