Loving Authentically

The power of authenticity and its quantum impact on humanity are big beyond measure. There are countless ways authenticity is loving.

When we are completely ourselves in friendships and love relationships, we feel good in them – therefore we are loving ourselves rather than forcing feelings that aren’t there. It is loving to others because what they see in us is truly what they get. There will be no surprise when our true colors show because our true colors have always shone through. We honor the intelligence of others by giving them an opportunity to make an informed decision about whether we resonate to them. The more authentic we are in relationships, the more authenticity we will draw into our life. When we are authentic our presence magically liberates others to be authentic. With some time and practice the games and drama fall away.

Have you ever had a job that you loved to go to? Imagine going to a job feeling aligned to your potential and higher purpose. It doesn’t matter what the job is. What matters is the energy of joy you and your colleagues bring. If you enjoy feeding hungry people, you might find joy in preparing and catering beautiful elaborate meals, or you might find joy in watching someone sink their teeth into the best juicy cheeseburger in town. Either way you will prosper.

Initially prosperity follows joy. With a little time prosperity and joy merge into one because the two energies blend, resonate and compliment each other. Whether it is a job or a relationship, if we are there for the joy of it, we spread love and happiness instead of despair and frustration.

Your Path to Authentic Joy

You can start identifying your joy and some barriers (real or perceived) with a notebook. Ask yourself some questions like: “If money, status, and education weren’t a factor…what would I be doing right now that would bring me joy?” “If I didn’t consider the opinions of others, what would I be doing right now that would bring me joy?”

Once you see a path to joy, you will find ways around the barriers you have. You may find that a lot of barriers are fears within you. List your fears in your notebook and evaluate them. Take a realistic look at your barriers in a fact-finding way rather than emotional.

Here are some suggestions to keep in mind:
Be kind and present to yourself like you would be to a friend.

Give yourself permission to change your mind.

Give yourself permission to not know every answer about yourself.

Be a friend to yourself like you are to others.

Avoid the word “should” when it comes to your feelings and preferences.

Avoid judging yourself.

Avoid defining yourself based on what you do for a living.

Above all, keep a sense of humor. The human condition can be hysterical!

Have fun exploring! If you run into some frustration or fear, just remember your joy is right around the corner…You are worth it!

    Great Article Brendalynn!
    My favorite gift to myself is to be my own best friend. All the rest falls into place when we accept and love ourselves with this kind of sweet passion.

    Great article Brendlynn,
    If I may just add one insight that has taken me a long time to get. Being authentic does not have to be logical, to really always make sense. It has to be because”you feel like it”. So I believe we need to really connect to what we want for ourselves, while we are being very kind and loving. As Brendalynn said, we shouldn’t judge ourselves, but give ourselves permission to just be.
    Thanks again, great job.

    I really liked the tips and suggestions listed in this article. These are great pointers that we all need to read, because most humans question things from time to time (about ourself). This is a great way to get a reality check and, hopefully, while reading these, a person could stop being so hard on themself. “Avoid judging yourself.” I think we all have had moments in our life where we all could find ourselves falling into the “trap” of doing such a thing. thank you!

    I think this was an excellent article, especially since we now live in an economic time period when many are having to RE-define their career path, their goals, and basically who they thought they were.
    Many used to identify themselves by what they did for a living…..
    ..such as ” I’m so & So and I’m a banker “,
    or ” I’m in real-estate “, or ” I’m a financial planner “,or ” I’m in construction “…etc. I find this to be true, especially in men….who really seem to define who they are by their career and paycheck.
    Now is the time to pursue your dreams ( which usually coincide with your Karmic calling by the way), more than ever…..
    Now is the time to ask Who am I…really ? ….What do I really want ?…..What would make me happy ?
    The timing couldn’t have been better for this particular article !
    Brendalynn really delivered a powerful thought-provoking message with this article.

    I ran into this problem in my marriage that just ended a few months ago. I don’t know if it was from growing up feeling like people didn’t accept me, but I started the relationship hiding my true self, and then proceeded to completely lose myself more and more through out the relationship until I just couldn’t take it anymore. Needless to say, I have figured out who I am now and am doing a much better job being authentic to myself in a new relationship.

    Why would anyone want a “fake” life anyway. The more authentic I am the more I attract what really makes me happy! My life becomes a blessing to me AND to others!
