Authentic self is the real you –unencumbered by fear, outmoded scripts and heavy burdens … the authentic self lives in flow with purpose, passion, creativity, harmony, and balance.
The process of uncovering our authentic self requires healing of past wounds and embracing our inner power. This has been referred to as the path of the spiritual warrior. It does necessitate some level of courage as facing ourselves is never easy. However in facing whatever difficulty we may encounter in the process we do develop an inner resiliency that spills over into all areas of life and can never be taken from us.
There are ways to make the journey to our authentic self less difficult or painful. An attitude of curiosity and adventure, as if you are entering into a garden filled with wonderful discoveries awaiting you, can turn your journey into a treasure hunt that feels less like work. Our attitude toward any task is affected by the attitude we bring to it.
Energetic principles and use energetic approaches can be of enormous help in uncovering our authentic self. Change can occur with less conflict and greater comfort. We can access our inborn capacities more easily and release the old more completely. Often our attempts to change are approached from a stance of willpower, hard work and a forced focus on what to be or not to be. The world of energy provides ways to facilitate change more easily, to integrate new patterns and abilities more effortlessly so we can become that person we see in our mind and feel in our heart.
Remember the treasure awaiting discovery is the real you unencumbered by fear, outmoded scripts and heavy burdens … the real you who can live with purpose, passion, creativity, harmony, and balance.
Authentic Self, Balance and Wholeness
All aspects of our Selves are important. Life is more enjoyable, balanced and fulfilling if we understand, appreciate and care for all our parts. This may seem like an obvious statement, but often we humans tend to over value one aspect and develop it to the exclusion of others. This leads to imbalances that cause stress and hardship.
Each aspect of our Selves provides a different level of awareness, a facet of our wholeness, and a distinctive way to experience the world. When we embrace the whole of our being we develop greater mastery, have more skill and ability to live more fully, vibrantly and with more satisfaction and fulfillment.
Developing subtle energy competency helps turn spiritual concepts into reality.

Flow, Feeling and the Authentic Self
IMAGINE….the feel of a free flow of energy sweeping through you like a river unimpeded by obstacles. Feel what it would be like to BE this river, at first meandering, then rushing along more strongly, perhaps stopping to pool in a happy little eddy just for the joy of it, once again picking up speed as the current moves forward toward the future, exhilarated by the prospect of a new adventure around the next corner.
Feel how this river moves smoothly and evenly through a variety of landscapes shifting, moving, and shaping itself to navigate the terrain but never fighting, stopping or stagnating. Of course rivers do hit obstacles just as we do in life. But unlike the river we have choices, free will and the ability to not be at the mercy of the elements if we know the appropriate skills to navigate the territory.
Our authentic self is free and flowing, however we live a human life and therefore we are going to encounter human dilemmas. When our river of energy is negatively impacted by life, people, events, traumas or stresses, there are reactions in our energy field. These reactions occur as mechanisms of protection and survival. Unfortunately these can then become a source of obstruction to the free flow of energy that would fully enliven us. If all of our energies are not fully charged, properly flowing and coherent, we can not meet the world with the full force of our being. Our view of the world and our place in it then tends toward negativity, limitation and feelings of
We may experience suffering and pain in our lives as a result of these wounded energies reverberating through our being. Working through our intellect is not enough nor is it the most elegant or powerful way to release our suffering, pain, reactive responses or troublesome patterns. The good news is that there is a lot we can do to remedy these situations. Working with our energy body/field and the chakras can release old stagnant, stuck energy, help to heal over wounds of the past, stabilize and ground us so we can live in the present fully and with ease. It is the most profound and fundamental way to reclaim our power.
As we work with our energy, we expand our selves and become better able to connect and live from an authentic center. In addition, we become large enough to hold all of life and strong enough to meet life directly which adds a depth and richness that is lacking when we live from our minds in what becomes a watered down version of life.
