How to Stay True to Yourself
When you stay true to yourself, you don’t get stuck with the opinions of others. You honor your inner truth and act in alignment with it. It’s good to be open to receiving help and uplifting energy from others, but there is a whole universe of difference between giving your power away to others and staying true to yourself.
1. Honor What Works For You
To follow your path, you only need to do what works for you and what supports you. That something doesn’t have to be perfect or even spiritual.
Don’t walk someone else’s path. What I sometimes see people doing is getting too motivated by someone else. They unconsciously tap into that person’s energy field and feel their excitement and believe that it’s their own.
When the excitement wears off, they start to doubt themselves because it seems like they can’t achieve the same result as their idol. Well, you can’t ever achieve the same results if you follow the path of someone else.
2. Heart’s Resonance
To follow your path, you have to tap into your heart’s resonance. The spiritual heart has a higher consciousness than our minds. Therefore it can safely guide to taking the right steps.
Attune to the frequency of your higher heart and let its vibratory field guide you.
When you stay true to yourself, you ask yourself:
Is this in resonance with my inner truth?
What do I want to express?
Which people’s guidance in my life is potentially misguiding me?
Is this aligned with what I truly want?
What do I need to know or do to follow my path with more ease?
3. Stay True to Yourself
When staying true to yourself, you always need to come back to your center. You don’t always need to know the next step just yet. Allow yourself time to find inner clarity.
How staying true to yourself may look:
- Being firm in your boundaries. As you consciously follow your path, you’ll realize that there are no real shoulds. There are only choices. Is this person or situation really needed in your life?
- Open up uncomfortable conversations. Sometimes you have to have that unpleasant conversation or explain to someone why you can’t be there for them every time they want.
- Stop taking in energies that aren’t beneficial to you. Maybe you realize that a friend you love has become a way too often negative, and it impacts you. In this case, you either learn not to take it in or reduce the contact with them.
- Following your path of purpose. Staying true to yourself also means that you allow yourself to commit to what is meaningful to you fully.
