You cannot go wrong by showing up in life and being authentically you.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves…
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking, so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us;
It’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson
In the past, I’ve had the tendency to supress the best parts of me, because I fear the radiance of my spirit will be intimidating, but the greatest gift I can give the world is my own happiness.
When I allow my light to shine with authenticity, the people and opportunities designed for my soul’s evolution will pursue me. The darkened shadows of my fears are illuminated and my resistance to love, joy, and acceptance begins to fall away.
If the folks currently in my life attempt to extinguish my light, because it makes them uncomfortable existing in this new space with me, maybe those aren’t my people. My people are out there looking for me. It is my goal to shift my focus from being a people-pleaser to being a people-lover, in order to clear the space for them to find me.
…and I consciously give you permission to do the same!
