R E A L I T Y... Social media only tells half the story.
I'm generally an optimistic, compassionate person who loves to smile.
AND... Does this mean that life is always happy and I never have challenges or feel deep emotions?
Of course not. I'm human too.
I only share what feels authentic to share on social media. And whilst I openly talk about what I learn from personal challenges, and even more so during my classes... I choose not to post rants and I also choose not to share deep things I'm currently working through unless I feel called to do so.
Because... 1) If it doesn't feel authentic I won't do it. 'Authenticity' has become a bit of a trend in the coaching world and true authenticity is sharing what feels authentic for us first and foremost... not solely doing it to be 'seen' as authentic.
2) Energetically what we broadcast, (especially in the online world) amplifies.
And this needn't mean we spiritual bypass and ignore what's going on. Just because I choose not to post a picture of me crying doesn't mean I don't cry or process my emotions. Just because I choose not to post an angry rant without any steps forward doesn't mean I don't express anger in whatever way feels right at the time.
My online life and private life are connected and yet separate too.
Only love and light doesn't create the deep integration the world desires.
There's a difference between... "Choose to always be happy, always raise your vibration" posts
Vs "a shift in perspective can teach us so much, and influence how we feel... life is for acknowledging what lies within, learning from the shadow and celebrating the gifts too" posts 🌟
And there are ways to share what angers us as a constructive catalyst for change.
There's a difference between... 1) A big Facebook rant only about what's wrong, pointing the finger elsewhere
2) This is is what angers me, and this is what it inspires me to do to create a positive shift.
In NLP we call this moving from 'Effect' to 'at Cause'. Recognising that we all have the ability to create an impact in our lives and the lives of others. And we can choose what type of impact we want to create. 💗
