Tune-in Thursdays: Authenticity


‘Tune-in Thursdays’ is something that came to me a while ago while contemplating in what other fun ways I could continue to share inspiration with others while also continuing to cultivate that trust in our intuition,  ability to love and support of self-awareness.

I was introduced a while ago to these absolutely beautiful Inner Compas Cards by Neel van Lierop I fell in love with the design and the authentic and personal feeling these cards hold. So I thought, why not share this with others as well?

Every Thursday I’ll be sharing with you a beautiful card drawn with the intention of authentically sharing messages that might be the exact guidance we need at that moment. Sharing with you the beautiful perspective from the card manual as well as my own interpretation thereof.

May this serve you in the most beautiful and loving way!

This week’s card… “Authenticity”.

“Authenticity is the constant letting go of who you think you should be, and instead embracing who you truly are. The goal of life is to not become what others expect of you, but instead to be true to yourself, and to feel good about the things you do- day in, day out. You shall find that when you accept your uniqueness, your self-esteem grows automatically.  If you are not true to your own ideals, you are really communicating with your own subconscious that you are not worth being you. If you do live in accordance with that which truly inspires you, you will be more productive, creative, and feel more fulfilled. In other words, you will stand in your own power…” –  Inner Compas Cards by Neel van Lierop

You would think that “being yourself” or “staying true to yourself” would be an easy thing to do, yet somehow it seems to be amongst the most difficult things, which we all seem to struggle with from time to time. Whether it’s because we’re so used to pleasing our family and friends, or we let self-doubt run the show, remaining truly authentic to ourselves and our heart’s desires is a full-time job.

What I have without a doubt learned along the way, sometimes the hard way, is that whenever I go against something I felt was right, whenever I override my own intuition or gut feeling, to please someone else, or to do what I thought would be “expected of me”, whenever I have made  a decision which drove me further from my authenticity, It has never felt right, and it has always been soul crushing.

Staying true and authentic to ourselves and to that which lights us up, is one of the most fulfilling and inspiring ways we can live our lives. Not only that, when we can remain authentic within our actions and choices we create this flow of sustainable bliss, as we embrace our true worth and stand in our full power.

Love & light,
