What does it mean to live authentically?
We know that authentic really just means real or true. But being authentic is a mindset that leaves out ego, selfishness and says goodbye to inconsistency.
Living authentically simply means you are living true or connected to the real value of who you are as a person, to your core. Your true nature.
When you are in alignment with your true nature, you have aligned your behaviors with your thoughts, emotions and purpose.
When living authentically, you are in high vibration and connected to the natural energies of the Universe.
This connection enlightens and awakens energy within you and offers you the power to affirm the life you envision for yourself.
Living authentically and awakened can lead to many positive outcomes and amazing gifts in your life.
For starters, you are confident in who you and what you are about. Which means you don’t believe everything you see or hear from anyone else.
You fully accept and love yourself; you stand by your convictions and morals. Therefore, you are unable to fall for just anything.
When you are living authentically, you take in what you need and let go of what does not serve you.
If it does not serve your greater purpose, you easily let it go. You are not burdened down. Knowing it is not for you. Knowing what is for you is coming.
You dance to the tune of your own drum and are damn proud of it. You are transparent and live connected to the world around you.
Living authentically allows you to easily share feelings of compassion and empathy with others. You are aligned, spirit, body and mind.
Living in an authentic state allows you to remain open to new ideas and perspectives without having to let go of your own truths or beliefs.
Often being in this state helps you to understand the deeper meaning behind happenings and other people’s emotions.
Living an authentic life means you are secure with who you are, what you think and what you believe.
Living an authentic lifestyle increases your energetic connection to the Universe which connects you to your true purpose and passions.
You are free of thoughts, feelings and emotions that do not serve your true nature. You are well. All is well, even when it's not.
When you are not living in an authentic state you will find yourself falling into cycles of chronic anxiety, stress, boredom and depression.
It takes a lot of inner work to get to this authentic and awakened state, but it is possible for everyone.
The problem getting most people to this space you see, is that we are limited by our habits and systematic beliefs.
We are hindered from real connection and authority over ourselves and our behaviors due to the lack of compassion, authenticity and empathy we see in our everyday lives. It is sad, and true.
But it does not have to be like this.
Our world is in desperate need of this compassion and connection. As the old saying goes - be the change you wish to see in the world around you.
It takes some real inner work and self-acceptance, but authenticity and alignment are possible for everybody. Change your habits, change your life.
It is possible to break these undesirable thought and behavioral patterns by simply implementing new, healthy habits that help raise your energetic vibrations and progress your mindset.
Like attracts like. Be a magnet for positive vibrations!
This transformation is a whole lot easier when you are in a high vibrating state.
