You have spent too long dwelling in the shadows, remaining small when you are meant to claim your seat at the table, to ascend and align with your sovereign self. The sovereign aligns with truth and drops in to listen to and honor the heart. There is no room for doubt or fear, it is a chosen path of full alignment with the soul. Discernment is required to stand in your full power and pure alignment with yourself. Taming the Ego is the key to stand fully in your sovereignty.
As you gain clarity and purpose, the Ego/mind will justify every wrong turn. The Ego will attempt to divert you from your truth and purpose. Will you have the discernment to know the way or the courage to face yourself and own your truth, or will you choose instead to continue into the dark without a flashlight? The Ego stands between you and your greatness. I’m not talking 3D greatness defined by nice cars and fancy vacations. I’m talking authentic power, where you are so fully in your lane and aligned with your purpose nothing can touch you.
It is clear the core issue holding people back is fear. Fear of not being enough, fear of being alone, fear of being SEEN for the magnificent being they really are! The time has come, and the time is now to step forward and step into the light. Many of you have agreed to be the beacon in troubled waters, to shine brightly in the dark. Will you become the fullest expression of YOU as we navigate these troubled times or continue to wash rinse repeat the same behaviors and responses to life as you cycle endlessly in a loop?
Stepping into your power requires a deep dive into your heart space. Here is where the wounds are buried, and the light is too. Recognize the control your mind has had over you and the many ways it has held you captive and kept you small, become an observer of your thoughts. Choose to feel your way through life rather than think your way through. There is nothing more powerful than full alignment with your sovereign self, which means honoring what’s right for you and using discernment around the information you receive from all sources. Check in! Does the information resonate or not? Truth is a vibration and feeling. It’s the knowing deep in your heart yes or no. In some cases, things you have spent years striving for might not in the bigger scheme of things be resonant with you anymore. Let go of everything that no longer resonates with you. It might be a friend, a spouse, or a lifestyle habit, it might be your mindset. Whatever it is, identify it and let it go.
Show up for yourself because if you fall, everyone around you falls like a house of cards! Make yourself a priority. Create space for self-care, connect to yourself without an agenda or to do list, let go of the story, that you are not enough, that you are unhappy, or that you can’t. That bullshit story has kept you from living as the fullest expression of yourself, and the world needs you. Get on your own team! Everything is a choice. There are many resources available to find our way back to ourselves. There are motivational speakers, conferences, classes, nutritionists, books, yoga, energy healing. If we want to change the world, we must first heal ourselves of the wounds through which we filter everything.
Life is finite, and it’s up to you to choose to be the fullest expression of yourselves. Life is not a gumball machine where you get to drop in a quarter and get a gumball to feel better whenever times are hard. You must deal with your emotions and discomfort, heal your wounds and align with your truth and potential. FEEL uncomfortable things and process them. Free yourselves from the gilded cage of your own design. This is where the magic happens.
The moment you take the first step towards owning your emotional “stuff” and aligning with your truth the path will literally unfold in front of you. The work as I call it is hard. It’s not something you gloss over and put to rest over a glass of wine and dessert. It’s messy and it’s real. You must be vulnerable and go deep, which sucks for people like me who are recovering perfectionists. There is nothing worse for a perfectionist than having to own your shit, all of it. However, the weight of the world starts to fall away as you process your “stuff” and let it go. Take one step at a time and soon you will stand so firmly in your power you won’t recognize the person you once were. The question is, will you have the courage and strength to choose you? Society programs you to put yourself last or stay so busy it distracts you from doing the inner work. It takes presence, space and time to feel and process. As you cut things out that no longer resonate, you will rise like a hot air balloon on a beautiful day. Your life path will accelerate as things come into alignment.
This journey was not about being perfect or “good”for me. It was about being honest and real about who I am and learning to embrace all aspects of it. To ascend and go higher I learned to love myself which meant all of myself, not just the glossy parts. There was this tipping point of understanding where I realized it was all necessary for my evolution. It’s all experience really, and not bad or good per se. Everything is for our soul growth. I felt compelled to write this for those of you who feel like there is something more to this life. Like there is a purpose far greater than you can wrap your mind around and you don’t know what that is. If you feel lost, connect with me here, I can help you: www.alinealifecoaching.com.
