Knowing how to bring yourself back into alignment with your authentic self

Exercise- Taking the time to fully acknowledge, feel and accept what is brining you out of alignment

Taking the time to fully acknowledge, feel and accept what is bringing you out of alignment

This is the first and most important step to take before doing anything else because unless you have truly owned and fully accepted that you are out of alignment on an emotional level you aren’t being authentic. In order to fully acknowledge, feel and accept what is brining you out of alignment you have to be willing to create the time and space to do so. This means allotting time whenever you notice that you are blocked and disconnected from yourself. If you don’t take the time to fully acknowledge, feel and accept what is brining you out of alignment you will remain blocked and unable to express yourself authentically. When you don’t fully acknowledge that you are blocked you are likely to create more suffering for yourself and others. Remember that all emotional pain is there to guide you back to the freedom you experience when you are authentic. 

This step is about getting clear on what is triggering you so that it is no longer an unconscious trigger. You are essentially shining the light on the things that you would sometimes prefer to keep in the dark and hide from. 

Steps to fully acknowledging, feeling acceptin

  1. Take time every day preferably at the end of the day to sit down in a quiet space where you aren’t going to be interrupted and ask the following questions. It may be helpful if you are highly stressed or emotional to do some deep breathing or meditation before you go through the questions.
  2. Questions to ask yourself to guide this process:

What has come up for me emotionally today that I really need to allow myself to feel and acknowledge? You can journal about this if necessary to gain more clarity.

What did I get triggered by today? And what particular situation, person, circumstance caused me to get triggered? What belief got challenged and what negative meaning did I assign to that experience?

What emotions am I experiencing as a result of being triggered? 

What am I avoiding, in denial about or not wanting to face that is creating suffering and robing me from authentic self-expression?
