Did you remember to bring yourself along?

Are you waiting for everything and everyone, including yourself, to be absolutely perfect before you can show up to your own life, before you can take action towards realizing your dreams?

It’s kind of like waiting for the arrival of a Messiah – you could be waiting for a very long time. How about just showing up anyways and seeing where things will go from there? You never know, it could be magic!

Life needs you to show up in your full authenticity. That is, with all your perfections as well as imperfections. No, you are not expected to be perfect – you just need to show up.

Indeed, when you do show up to your own life – magic happens. It happens simply out of the very creative power of the inspirational energy that is You, your very essence.

Showing up could mean showing up to a dream you’ve been putting aside, showing up to your work and being fully present, showing up to your family and friends. Even showing up to your ‘me time’.

If you want to create change in your life, then start paying attention to that script that runs in your mind about who you are. This script may or may not be an accurate portrayal of you, but one thing’s for sure: it dictates your physical reality. Notice the whole script without judgment. Then notice the parts of the story that are portraying you as the victim, the loser, ugly, unattractive, unlovable, a martyr, then go ahead and retell the story to be one of happiness, beauty, heroism, miracles. You have that power. It’s your choice what you choose to validate.

From a clairvoyant perspective, showing up means bringing yourself, your energy, your agreements with others into present time. It takes some willingness to let go, forgive and find amusement with the oh so imperfectly perfect human nature.

When you entered the room that you’re in now, did you bring yourself along? Or are you still solving that argument you had six months ago? Still reconciling that old disagreement with your ex, your parents or that nosy neighbor? Do you think it is your responsibility to figure out and resolve all those arguments that were presented to you? Was it all even personal or were everyone just going through a growth period? How about letting go of that responsibility and regaining your peace of mind and peace of heart.

Using gentle meditation and the simple grounding technique you can ground into present time where your body is. By grounding into present time where the body is you can experience joy and bliss. Your body is always in present time.

The world needs healers, humanitarians and other inspired folk who know their own value and who show up in the world. Today, give the world the most precious gift you could ever give – you.
