Consciously putting forth effort toward ‘Soul Work’ is important, every single day, if we ever hope to become our greatest version. This primarily means working on our happiness, passions, and truth.
Mostly, what these all require is to be true to oneself, as doing so is crucial to spiritual enlightenment.
By knowing ourselves we are better able to understand what it is we need (or desire) to live our best, happiest, most creative, rich, and abundant lifestyle. As opposed to what we think we need or want, or how other’s believe our lives should go.
This process begins, as any should, with being honest in everything you do and say. This doesn’t mean you should be crude with your remarks. As always, if you don’t have something nice to say you may want to consider withholding any unnecessary words. However, if something affects you negatively to such a degree it alters your emotional or mental state of mind, you should always stand up for yourself.
Be respectable, yet don’t let anyone walk all over you!
Living your life in this way will free you of wasting your time or that of others. It will help you and all those around you to let go of what is no longer of service in order to move toward a greater good.
“Know thyself.” – Oracle at Delphi
“To thine own self be true.” – Shakespeare
When we are living in our truth and know ourselves well, we become unafraid to be ourselves at all times, non-apologetically. The judgment we once felt from other people melt’s away and holds considerably less weight than it once did.
If you’re not already living this way, it’s time to start. As with any transition, however, it may require that changes occur that are outside of your control. You may find that certain so-called friends disappear whom you happened to be ‘people-pleasing’ without knowing it. Your relationships with people may change for better or worse.
As difficult as this may or may not be, it’s truly for the best. By stepping into your light, other people may not be able to handle its shine. You will find that over time, the people that are truly your friends will stick around, while other’s may fade away into their own obscurity.
The more open and honest you become, the more you will attract people of a similar mindset and ‘vibe’ that reflects your own. Your relationship with the people who choose to shine along with you will begin to deepen and improve. By living in your truth, you may have to confront people about how you truly feel – they will either take it to heart and make improved changes along with you, or they were never truly meant to be.
To work on this, consider taking a ‘Soul Audit’ by writing down everything that means something to you in this lifetime. Your job or career, your relationship status, your family, home, and social life. Then, write down any emotions that surface in relation to each topic. Including both positive and negative.
Once this is done, focus on the ones that seem to include mostly negative emotions. Pinpoint the areas you feel most depressed, drained, exhausted, trapped, frustrated, or ambivalent. Then, write down or think about how you would rather feel about these things instead and focus on how you can work on improving upon them.
What do you have to do to move from the negative side of the emotional spectrum into the positive? Write down ways, both short-term and long-term goals, that you can put into action. Practice working on them one small step at a time each day to experience pure authentic freedom.
Chances are you may have to have conversations with people, and make a few minor or major changes in order live in your ultimate truth and create the reality you desire.
This doesn’t mean you have to have arguments with anyone or end the relationship you have with them. Instead, it may very well be the catalyst needed to propel you both toward spiritual enlightenment. If these people are truly meant to be a part of your life, they will put in whatever work is necessary to improve upon themselves as well.
Being open and honest with them is a way of inviting them to do the same. Together, you can address any issues that arise and solve them together. This may include friends who seemingly hold you back from pursuing your passions, a co-worker who always puts themselves before you, a romantic partner who doesn’t pull their weight in the relationship, a family member who isn’t supportive enough, or even a boss who seems to overlook the value that you provide.
Find what it is that will add to your happiness and let go of what no longer serves you. Become more open and honest not only with yourself but with those around you and live in your own light, without shame or fear of judgment. Knowing what you truly want, think, and feel will allow you to invest in your future in a positive way instead of wasting time creating a reality that holds no basis for your happiness.
This also doesn’t mean you should be narcissistic or selfish, as there is a fine line between these and simply loving yourself enough to do what’s best for you, personally. Instead, living in your truth is an act of kindness. It frees your soul to live up to it’s potential, helping you become the best person you know how to be, which in turn will only serve to be of the greatest good for everyone else concerned. ♥
