A few years ago a very dear friend of mine called me crying with gratitude for helping her to awaken to the truth of who she really was.
Truth be told, I really wasn’t sure why she was thanking me because as far as I could remember I didn’t say or do anything, directly at least, to help her come to such a profound realization.
As we continued chatting, she eventually clarified that it had nothing to do with what I said but with who I was and what I consistently embodied- and that is what inspired her to embark on her own personal journey of self.
Needless to say I was totally blown away by her very generous sentiments because I did not intentionally set out to convince or persuade her of anything but was simply being myself.
That experience taught me two very important lessons that day which then became guiding principles for my life:
- Who you are is more important than what you say and,
- Your life can be a great source of inspiration for others.
When we awaken to our true authentic self and begin to experience the pure bliss, ease, flow and magic of living consciously, it is very natural for us to want the same for others , especially our family and friends.
We earnestly want them to wake up and step into seeing life with eyes wide open because of our very own liberating and truly fulfilling experience from this higher level of consciousness.
As such, sometimes we may find ourselves preaching, lecturing and sometimes even forcing them to see life differently, which if not properly managed, can result in them being dissuaded or demotivated by your best of intentions.
In my experience a much better and loving way to inspire those around you, to explore a more high vibrational, conscious way of living, is through your own life.
When you consistently embody the essence of love, peace, joy, freedom, abundance, oneness etc., your life becomes the model by which others are able to witness and experience the demonstration of what it means to live consciously.
This is actually what makes this supercharged lifestyle attractive to others and what can potentially inspire them to engage and explore their own journey of self, gracefully and naturally.
So remember, say less and be more…your life might just be the inspiration that someone else needs to fully awaken to the truth of who they are.
