Be Your Authentic Self

mask - Copy

You are One with All

But you are also an individual

Do not be afraid to be yourself

Dear One, although you are one with all and connected in ways you do not yet understand, you are also a unique individual. Allow yourself to be authentic, to be who you really are. Others will love you for your true nature. There is no need to try to be someone you are not.

That is not to say that you have no need for growth in your behavior or thinking. That is one of the reasons you are here in this experiential existence. But the core of who you truly are will not change. It is your unique personality and it will allow you to complete the tasks that you came here to do. You will make changes along the way, either gently or more forcefully, depending on how you choose to learn. But your authentic self will not change.

Remove the mask that you have worn for so long hiding your true nature. Honor who you are and what you feel. If you feel joy, then dance with abandon. If you feel sadness, then allow it to run its course. Do not hide from it, for it is there for a reason. Like a rudder to your ship, showing you the way to go next; be it changing your course or keeping on straight with perhaps some small adjustments. The pain, the sadness that you feel is there to guide you. Do not push it away. Honor it, send it love and ask it for guidance for your next step.

You are a loving creature. You were created in love and are surrounded by love. Love is all there is. But in this human existence, perceived pain often makes you want to run and hide. You may do so for a short time and during that time, try to sit with what you are feeling. Then find the courage, the strength to venture out once again. And be who you really are, your authentic self. For there is much grace in that authentic self, even though you may not see it during these painful times.

You, Dear One, are filled with grace and love. You, Dear One, are filled with light and radiance. You, Dear One, are more magnificent that you realize. Do not hide behind a mask trying to be someone you are not due to fear of non-acceptance. You can be your authentic self. You can own your power and you can do it with gentleness and love.

It is too exhausting for you to be anything but who you really are. Love that person that you are. No self-judgment is necessary. For we see you as you are and bathe in your brilliant light that comes from deep within your being. Can you first accept yourself, heal yourself, comfort yourself with the knowledge that your authentic self is unique for a reason? It is that uniqueness that will allow you to change the world in the way that only you can.

Everyone has their special skills, strengths and reason for being here. Your life is unfolding exactly as it should. You have met and interacted with exactly who you were meant to meet. And you are capable of loving everyone who crosses your path, including most of all, yourself.

Dear One, take off the mask and show your true nature. It is beautiful.

You have a choice to be authentic in love or in fear. Choose love.

You will find you have more energy, more love to give if you stop holding up that mask.

Be Free.

Be Authentic.

Be the Shining Light that you are.

One with All of thee.

    Thanks for these good thoughts. I feel the mask is a product of self-perception, believed to be our “genuine self,” but also deceiving. Life’s journey is filled with discoveries, and in my experience it becomes easier to remove the mask as the years accrue. It also depends on how much we depend on what’s outside rather than inside, feeling a dependency on an external source rather than an internal source.The more authentic we are the more freedom we enjoy.

    We wear a different mask for the different people we encounter. The truth of who we are is sometimes hard for others to see so we try to make them comfortable rather than being true to ourselves. Not a good thing.
