Just be yourself!

Just be yourself. That’s great advice, but how can we do that in a society where we are expected to follow the so-called acceptable way of doing things? Also, why would we even want to be completely authentic if it’s so darn hard and unpopular?
When we are truly authentic, we are allowing ourselves to be guided by the divine. When we make heart-centered decisions and live divinely inspired lives, we are not allowing the fearful, judgmental, and often self-depracating ego make our decisions for us.
When we honor the divine spark within us, we have more of our soul’s energy to use for manifesting abundance into our lives, discovering and living our soul’s purpose, and creative expression.
Also, we begin to have more compassion and empathy for ourselves and others. When we become our authentic selves, we finally get to take off our masks and truly live in integrity.

how to take inspired action

In both the spiritual and self-help communities, we are encouraged to take inspired action. What does that really mean, and how, exactly, are we supposed to do that? Where does this inspiration even come from?
For example, when I began this blog, I researched topics and added a few of my insights along the way. In other words, I was taking action, but I was not writing from the heart. This is where our inspiration comes from. True inspiration can also come from our spirit guides, angels, or any other source that connects you to the divine.
If you want to know whether your desire to take action on something in your life is coming from a place of inspiration, ask yourself this question. Is this coming from a place of love, or is it coming from a place of fear, guilt, or obligation?

Too busy for a long meditation? Try this instead.

I received this meditation from my spiritual team, and it has become part of my morning routine ever since. It takes less than five minutes, but I’ve learned that short meditations can be very affective.
Sit or stand as straight as you can, and take several deep breaths until you feel centered. When you are ready, tune into your heart center where you will encounter your soul. Take some time to notice the qualities of your soul. At this point, you can ask your soul for a message, or you can simply send gratitude to that divine part of yourself. Now, you can return to your day feeling empowered and centered.
This meditation can also be helpful in those moments when we feel as though we are lacking confidence, inner strength, wisdom, or compassion for ourselves.

What does it mean to live from the heart?

When you are truly living from your heart, it can be scary, but it can also be filled with joy and excitement. It requires us to give up the tendency to play it safe. In order to live from the heart, we must reach for our own dreams and desires despite what others may think. It’s not always an easy path to walk, but it’s definitely a rewarding one. It requires a great deal of faith in yourself as well as the divine, and it requires a great deal of humility because we are bound to make mistakes along the way.
However, if we live from the heart, we will find freedom because we are no longer bound by the expectations of others. Instead, we are discovering our true divine natures and living by our own expectations. If we follow our hearts, we can do what we came to this earth to do. I’m not suggesting that this path is always smooth, but I encourage you to give it a chance.
