Connection is the energy between two people, how you connect with another person has a lot to do with the energy between you. When your energy levels are different, the connection can be more difficult. You know the saying “I felt like I have known them my whole life”, this comes from both people being on the same energy wave length and you feel an immediate connection.
Now that you are aware of what a connection is, how can you apply that to your true authentic self? A connection been the energy between two people, well in this case it is a connection between the self you are aware of and your higher self. You know that small quiet inner voice you hear and probably ignore most of the time, that is your higher self guiding you.
Starting to improve your connection with your higher self is going to help you to live your life as your true authentic self, instead of living from external expectations and how you think you should live your life. From the time as a small child you have been instructed on what to do, how to do it and when to do it, so it is no wonder your connection has waned.
Aren’t you tired of living a life that doesn’t feel authentic to you? Doing things to please others, only to be left feeling depleted instead of energised. Operating in connection with your higher self will see you doing things in such a way that serves both you and others, remembering when you say yes to others you are in fact saying no to yourself.
In today’s world of social media it can be hard to shut out all the external noise and connect back in with your true authentic self. Falling into the comparison trap is very common and I for one have been very guilty of comparing myself to others. So how do you shut out all this noise and connect in with your higher self, let’s look at a few ways.
3 Ways To Connect With Your True Authentic Self
- Meditation – is a wonderful way to shut out the external noise and come back to your center. Think about it as a time of getting to do nothing, instead of viewing it as just another thing you need to do. I recommend using the app “insight timer”, it has some beautiful music with a timer. Start out with just 5 minutes and build it up over time, I currently do 20 mins morning and night.
- Journaling – is a great way to hear your voice, without any restrictions, just write. Let it flow and see what comes. I shared in an earlier blog “The Art Of Letting Go” steps to journaling if you haven’t done it before. This is something I recommend to all of my clients for both themselves and their children, depending on the age. For younger kids getting them to draw how they are feeling works wonders.
- Breathing – deep breathing is such a quick, easy and effective way to connect in with your true authentic self. Breathing calms both feelings in your body and thoughts in your mind, give yourself 3 minutes and you will be feeling refreshed and grounded.
Using the above strategies on a regular basis is going to see you feeling calmer, more relaxed and less likely to take on other peoples opinions or judgements as your own.
If you are finding it hard to have a connection with your true authentic self, I can help you to work through past experiences that are keeping you from re-awakening your deep connection.
