I am finding that you are only able to be your authentic self once you have realized, accepted, honored and released subconscious ideas of who you are. There are many stories that we tell ourselves that do not serve us as they once did. In order to grow and evolve into our highest selves, we must be willing to look at those stories and decide whether they help or hinder our growth. And then choose and change accordingly! I'm not saying this is easy, but it is necessary. However, as in all journeys, be gentle with yourself. For those stories served you at one time and helped you get to where you are now. Thank them and then let them go. Some may be more graceful than others and that's ok! Let go of your personal judgment of how you need to get through something. Again, be gentle with yourself.
In order to manifest my dream of being a successful artist making a living off of my art, I am working on getting rid of self defeating beliefs about who I am and what I deserve. I am saying goodbye to old stories of unworthiness. I am worthy. I am deserving. I am brave. I matter! What I do matters! For I am a maker of beautiful things!
