Authentic Self

“Hard times arouse an instinctive desire for authenticity.”

~Coco Chanel

Earlier this week one of the gem topics was on personal retreats. A dear friend recently shared with me one of the exercises she did while on a retreat a few years ago. During this time she had been in recovery from a life event causing her to look at things differently from the perspective of what she calls her “higher self.” She graciously offered it to me to share with you all:

“Your authentic self is to cherish and treasure-it is a gift and a blessing that deserves expression now and always-whatever the future brings.

Embrace uncertainty.

Love yourself unconditionally.




Let go.

Say no.

Say yes.

Express and name your feelings.

Be vulnerable in safe company or alone.

Pay attention.

Accept abundance.

Be generous.

Be grateful.”

What’s your description of living as your higher self? Take a moment to share with me your thoughts on this topic!

Wishes to you for a happy day!

Hi I’m Meg. I love helping empathic people who sometimes “feel too much” calm their head, hearts, and homes through my courses and books. Ultimately we all want to feel good in our bodies, relationships, and with the work we do in this world. When we remove the roadblocks that exist on the road to feeling the way we want to feel life tend to flow easier.
