If 2020 will teach me anything it’s to trust my inner self without a doubt, 100% of the time!
A couple weeks ago, give or take a day, someone I follow on social media made a very significant announcement. This person, I initially had a hard time aligning with, but eventually “gave in” to buying the (at the time) best selling book because it had become ‘all the rave’… I’ve even heard her speak in person and found her message inspiring and motivating. The last few months, I’ve slowly lost interest, wasn’t checking out her posts anymore, just didn’t feel in alignment again.
It’s interesting how our lives can unfold, especially where social media is involved and the pure fakeness that can easily be spread…
In 2020 I’ve been much more aware of my social media use, who I “follow”, which honestly I have issues with that word… let’s re-phrase that, who I choose to connect with!
Around June 9 or 10th I opened insta and her post was at the top of my feed. I honestly hadn’t seen many posts in a while, that totally happens with social algorithms (what the platform wants you to see…), something in me said stop and read this…
The post was absolutely shocking.
I have purposely been more aware of any judgment that may slip into my mind or out of my mouth, and call myself on it. We learn and grow every single day.
“What the fuck?!” Is exactly what fell out of my mouth in that moment and I felt zero shame or feeling like I was judging.
This person, who provides coaching classes, courses, books, on living your best life with businesses and relationships… who also on April 30th published a podcast about “Keeping Your Relationship Strong During Quarantine” and talks about a recent interview where she also talked about their relationship and how especially now it’s so important to work together blah blah blah…
June 8th she posted that her and her husband have decided to end their marriage and that the past month has been the hardest for them.
39 days after publishing their “keeping your relationship strong during quarantine” podcast?!
I’m being completely honest here, that was my initial reaction. Followed by, wow I was completely duped. My soul resisted for a very long time, so many within my “social (media) circle” were reading her books, book clubs, hell I was even in a book club…
Honestly I’m not even going to mention the name, I’m not about shaming, what I am about is FOLLOWING YOUR GUT, HEART AND SOUL!
These people were/are profiting off real people, many of whom genuinely want to better their life and appreciate REAL people as examples.
Except when the people aren’t real. They are living and promoting a completely fake image, while profiting from people. I read through some comments, because honestly this was my real initial gut feelings. There were SO many congratulating her for being so “brave” and “vulnerable”… and equally as many also questioning.
2020 is THE year we all learn to question more. Think of how children learn, they continually ask “why?!”. As annoying as that can be at times, thinking more so of the toddler stage 🤣, this is how they learn and process things. We WANT our children, our next generation to question, as you learn you do better, however that is. I regularly tell my kids, we learn every single day, no matter the age!
This blog isn’t to point fingers, but rather bring attention to the fact that it is SO important for every single one of us to trust ourself and our own intuition FIRST! Always!
Honestly, I get it, many people write books and movies that are not true, many are so far sideways there is no possible way they can be true, some people like that, aliens, robots etc. That’s totally fine. My soul has always reminded me during movies or books “this isn’t even possible”, which perhaps “ruins” the enjoyment, but for me when I have a hard time aligning with someone or something, I do not get much enjoyment out of it anyway.
My inspiration for this beautiful Saturday morning is to spread love and joy on being exactly who we each are. Completely separate to what anyone else says or does. Aligning with REAL people who can admit they are not perfect but, honestly who the fuck is!
This has truthfully shifted my world views even more. Interesting how a couple can do this, who weren’t being real themselves. To help people rise up from someone else’s story, that’s not true!!! To lean in even more to me. To my journals. To my family. To my trust worthy friends.
Life isn’t a competition, it’s not a game. There is no prize for being perfect or portraying an image of perfection. This is where people falsely believe that money and status is key… it’s not.
Do you choose to do something because you want/need to and have done the research yourself or is it because “everyone else is doing it”…
Think about it, even when you go to a therapist, it’s not the therapist who “fixes” you or your life. They direct the conversation, ask questions, offer suggestions… its YOU who does the work, if you choose.
You will know the feeling, when reading or hearing something, how do you feel? Really sink into that… If there is resistance, why? The only person who truly knows you, is you. Although this, for many, is the most challenging fact.
I truly believe this is why energy work has become a part of many of our lives. There are a lot more people waking up to their inner self and being. The importance of the effects on our mental and physical health. It’s all related.
Get quiet daily, be aligned with your own personal ethics and values. Follow your heart… it truly does know the way!
