What the bleep is Being You?
For a moment go back in time and see when others have told you how you are supposed to be? (You may have agreed with those ideas or rebelled against them.) No matter what, these points of view had a major impact in shaping you and your life. Now imagine your life 20 years from now. Will these points of view still be there?These projections do stand in the way of you knowing what is really true for You, they get in the way of you actually enjoying YOUR life.
Now imagine waking up in the morning and having a sense of gratitude (without having to do / think anything). Imagine having a continuous sense of peace, ease, and even joy throughout the day, no matter what is going on. Imagine feeling really good about yourself and not needing to prove anything to anybody. You just know who you are. Now imagine your life 20 years from now. You, knowing what is true for you, are able to choose what makes it fun for you to be alive and enjoy what living has to offer.
Being You is not about succeeding as you or doing anything better. It is about the energy of you, whatever that may be. When you are being you, you stop being at the effect of the world around you.
Being you allows you:
- not to be caught up in the should’s and ought to’s;
- to be able to see things for what they are, no longer interpreting them for what we would like them to be;
- to begin knowing what works for us and what not;
- to begin to let go of our entrainment to judgment;
- to start asking questions, perceiving the various possibilities and being willing to choose from among them;
- to look at which choice will create more, more for us and others.
I have been deeply impacted by Dr. Dain Heer’s Being You classes and the classes I have taken with Access Consciousness. As a result, I am stepping into a level of freedom that I have never before experienced. Looking at where I was and where I am today, I feel it is such a gift to have this freedom, the awareness, the ability to ask questions, the ability to create the life I would like to live. It is a gift that is available to everyone, no matter what age, who chooses it.
Here is one way in which I am so different now. What do you do when you hear that you are losing your office? Yes, I could just go and find another one, OR I could look at the fact that I co-created this and wonder what else is possible now? See I would like to create my life to be traveling and presenting workshops. A few years ago, this would have been a completely unrealistic idea. Not only do I know a good number of people who live their lives that way, now I am using the fact of losing the office to totally change my business.
I am in the process of creating products so I can be location independent. What do I mean by creating products? For instance, I had programs in place that were intended for face to face sessions. I am writing up the exercises for people to do at their own pace, questions to be with, and therefore am cutting down on the number of personal sessions necessary. I am learning to use technology that is available. I am also recognizing how this is playing into more than just being location independent.
I am looking at writing another book, one about judgment (it will be quite an expansion on that article). I am looking at what judgment is, how it impacts us and what we can do to let go of it. I am creating a workshop around money that I can take on the road with me and present in addition to the main Being You Adventures. I might come up with other subject areas to have more variety of workshops and provide a service to people.
I am finding that the more I am willing to be me, the more I change, the more I let go of the stories I have been told while growing up which are not only not true for me, but some of them, actually many of them, are not true at all as I have discovered. They were opinions people had and made into Truth.
Each one of you, the reader, has a greatness. Are you willing to acknowledge that? Each one of you, being you, is a gift. Are you willing to be that? As illogical as it may sound, this is harder than playing small. Marianne Williamson talked about us being more afraid of being the light that we are. I am changing that for myself by being me.
