I’ve started to read Soul Coaching by Denise Linn. After reading the first few pages it has me thinking all kinds of things. So for those of you that are unsure what soul coaching is, it is aligning your inner spiritual life with your outer life. It helps to clear away mental, emotional and physical clutter.
Who are you and who do you want to be? Do they align? For me this answer is yes, however I have not reached my full potential yet. I am getting better every day; I am better than I was yesterday and tomorrow I will be better than I was today. How’s your anger? How about your guilt, regrets? You think that you know yourself so well until someone comes along and as you questions like this. It makes you stop and examine everything. What are your beliefs? The ones that you believe down to your core, the ones you were not taught to be true but the ones you know are true.
What’s your self-esteem like? Is it in line with how you want to treat yourself? Personally, that answer is yes, to a point. I always have room for improvements, of course. We all have improvements that can be made, even if we don’t know they are there. For intense, I would like to rid myself of the little voice in my head that is so hard on myself. Always telling me I can’t do something, or what I do isn’t good enough. I have gotten better at ignoring this voice but sometimes it seeps its way in and gets to me.
The big one for me is fear; it does not align with where I want to be compared to where I am. I fear so many things of which are not important. What is important is that the fear I hold inside of myself holds me back from being the best version of myself. This is what I want to change; I want to release the fear. Fight through it and do whatever it is that I’m afraid of. So that fear can no longer hold me back from being free. I want to be like a butterfly, flying beautifully without a care in the world. Going where ever the breeze takes me, taking some time to sit on a flower and take in the view. I want to be free, to break through all the walls, through all the garbage. So I can come out on the other side, stronger and wiser than ever before. Knowing yourself is the first step to freedom, so let’s get going. There is so much to be done….
