I hope you enjoyed the Olympics. I did! It always inspires me to see what is possible. These folks are following their dream. They are dedicated and committed. They have focus, and they are connected to their “inner” power. Now of course we can’t all be Olympians, but we CAN instill some of the values that these young adults are demonstrating.
It all starts with knowing who you are. Sounds easy, but it gets complicated when life gets in our way, right? I like to believe that we are all on a journey of awakening; that we are day by day opening our eyes, our minds and our hearts to all the Love in the Universe that is already in us, around us, and running through us.
Peace is possible for the World if we embrace the idea that we are not all separate beings doing our own thing. We are interconnected. When we see something someone is doing that we don’t like we can acknowledge that there is a part within ourselves that also does things we don’t like. When we see Olympians winning gold medals, we can also appreciate the fact that we have earned gold medals too in many areas of our lives.
We can easily lose touch with who we are. And isn’t it true that we keep looking outside of ourselves for who we are? We seek approval from others to help us feel less bad about ourselves. But who we are IS NOT out there! It’s within. There is something powerful deep within you. Discover it; own it; claim it!
I believe that we have 2 “selves”: our Higher Self (True Self, Spiritual Self, Love-Based Self, or whatever you’d like to call that part) and our Lower Self (False Self, Fear-Based Self, Personality, EGO)
Our false self is louder, and wants our undivided attention. When we are in anger, judgment, fear of any kind, self-sabotage, etc. we are in our false self and we feel discomfort, stress, pain, and powerlessness.
Our True Self, based in Love, is our Spiritual Essence. It is always there and always has been and always will be even after your body is no longer here. It’s the Divine in you. And within you is your highest calling. It is SO possible to come home to your True Self. It is already within you; it’s calling for you to raise your awareness and step into your greatness.
Is it time for you to awaken your inner Olympian? That part of you that has so many gifts and talents is nudging you to acknowledge its presence. Can you feel it? Do you have a sense that there is SO much more in life that you have yet to realize?
Heed the call of your greatness. Shine your inner light on it. The WORLD is waiting for the gifts that you are here to bring.
