Your soul ALWAYS wants you to act on your birthright to THRIVE!
But here's the thing: You don't always know that. Or remember. Or allow it to. For all sorts of different reasons. Some of which could be:
Living up to other people's expectations
Fear of rejection
Fear of being judged
A need to be fitting in or belonging
A lack of trust or feeling of inferiority
I could make this a pretty long list, but you get the point.
The part about ALLOWING your soul to come forth to shine is the most important one here. If you know with certainty that your soul ALWAYS shines it then becomes a matter of letting that shine through in your personality. Your human aspect.
If that takes you really rocking the boat, then you should defintely go for it!
If that takes you trusting that you are always taken care of and that taking that leap of faith will keep you safe in the face of rejection or judgment, believe it and go for it!
If that takes you making yourself a priority and KNOWING that that is not about being selfish, then you NEED to do that. That is actually honouring and respecting yourself.
You are here first and foremost for YOU! If you can respect and honour that we will see you shine. And feel so much better for it. You and me both. And the world as a whole. That is how big an impact YOU have.
Are your playing small in life? Are you denying parts of your true self to feel you belong or fit it?
Do you have, or have had, dreams in your life you have abondoned for some of the same reasons?
Are you putting what you love, what makes you excited and brings you joy on the backburner for "some day"? Or decided it is not for you because you should be sensible, practical and everything else considered "proper"?
If so; time to be a bit rebellious! Time to reconnect to soul - to the core of you - and honour what is there.
Soul knows what you came here for and I can tell you, it is NOT to dim your light.
On sort of a sidenote: This is just as much a message for myself as it is to you. I do not have everything figured out. What I do know is this:
Humanity and this planet is at a turning point and we all need us all to SHINE our lights and to honour and respect our right to THRIVE.
Old baggage? We don't need to understand every detail. What would serve us better is to straighten our backs, look the world and ourselves courageously in the eyes and consciously CHOOSE to PIVOT!
No more! That was then. This is NOW! And tell yourself:
I am here for a reason. I am here to SHINE. I am here to THRIVE.
