I celebrated my 37th Birthday a few months back. Since then, I’ve been feeling the freedom to move into deeper, stronger, brighter, clearer alignment with my actual self. Is this what naturally comes with the age of 40?
I started to embrace my Inner Guide as more than just a teacher of Self-Knowledge. I began embracing a more whole version of myself… meaning, I’m convinced our Inner Guidance isn’t some chess-master in the sky talking to us through wifi… No. Our Inner Guidance has to be the most Amazing, Magical, Wonderful part of who we actually are!
I’ve heard people talk about it as their higher self, the holy spirit, their inner guide… but I have met few who would go so far as to own it as the completion to their actual identity. Why is that? Are we more humble as disown our Genius?!? I think not.
I know a girl who has recently shared on her blog here, that YOUR ACTUAL SELF = you + your Inner Guide/Genius… and that’s where the MAGIC of life is. I agree wholeheartedly.
I see each and every day, our Actual Self is completely Integrated with our Body: We experience 3 phases in Life + Body, and all 3 phases are based on the attitude-positioning we take in relationship with our Inner Guide/Genius. The phases are:
DeGenerative – that’s when we deny connection to our Genius. We do things the hard way. We try to fight our own battles on the OUTSIDE… we are inefficient at this phase. We breakdown. We want + strive. We are little ol’ us in the Natural without any Super power.
When we deny our actual self is the union of us + our Inner Guidance [Intuition]… we deny our Life Force and DeGenerate.
Generative – that’s when we are led into Inspired Action through the Inner Guide/Genius that is moving through + within us. We become Creative in response to owning this Superpower as perfect compliment to our Natural… making us Super Natural. Miracles/Magic is a result of this wholistic union. When we acknowledge our Inner Guide as the greater part of who we actually are… lookout world, dreams are being conceived.
When we know our actual self is the union of us + our Inner Guidance [Intuition] and we Explore that further [especially as we explore it further with playfulness and ease]… we Generate in Life.
Regenerative – that’s when we are led into the Zone. You know it as that place of highest efficiency and ease. It’s a flowing state of Life-force energy where we are restored, renewed, revived… Inspired. It is that phase where the breath of Life is moving through us, lighting us on fire!
When we acknowledge + appreciate our actual self is the union of us + our Inner Guidance [Intuition]… we Regenerate.
I see it daily confirmed, those 3 phases of Life are what communicate with our Life Force Energy [chi] and causes Degeneration, Generation or Regeneration within the body!
Speaking of Bodywork…
I was thankful to get the opportunities to serve as a bodyworker today… connecting with others teaches me + helps guide me into stronger alignment with my actual self. I really enjoyed today’s connection both with others as well as my Intuitive Guidance. Today, I was Inspired to take my break between sessions outdoors. I captured a selfie to show my face to the world… as well as an image of Katie-girl, my Canine-Person Companion.
I also spent some time before work this morning doing my devotionals with my Creative Journal right by my side… It’s these kind of things that really keep me in alignment with my actual self… just being thankful that Life is the way it is: Magical!
