Step Into Your Brilliance

Step Into Your Brilliance

By Caroline Diana Bobart

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Have you ever been at that place of knowing with every fibre of your being that you are enmeshed in a situation that doesn’t honour your spirit?  And you can’t see how to create your exit in such a way that deep, healing, new, fun, meaningful and validating experiences can come in?

At times like that your communication with yourself can seem muffled to the extent that it can feel like you are in an energetic fog. In this fog it is difficult to hear and really step into your wisdom and truth, to see your options and know precisely what it is you need to do to navigate your way out of it.

You may not have necessarily thought about it in these terms before, but as a Spirit, at times like this, what you are really after is a quantum leap in your self-awareness, ability to see yourself, capture and become the vibration of a new and relatively less encumbered you.

Becoming aware of this – your desired quantum leap enables you to cut your way through the fog, sometimes on your own, at other times with others you ‘coincidentally’ encounter because on some level you intuitively sense they can help.

Additionally, the more consciously you can allow yourself to become aware of your desired quantum leap, the more you can begin to acknowledge your truth –  your inner wisdom, desires and needs that resonate with you on the most core, fundamental levels of your awareness and being.

Once you allow yourself to stand in the energy of your Truth, no matter how naked and vulnerable you feel (in comparison to the relative safety of the life situation that keeps you safe yes, but also stuck!) It can become addictive. You find yourself wanting to do it more and more because it makes you feel aligned. Your body and being begin to recall the primordial energy of limitless possibilities available to you as it now searches for a more conscious form of creative expression.

Immersed in that new space now, you begin not only to hear your deepest wants and needs, but you begin to dare to imagine the possibilities. Even if you feel uncertain and fearful, you begin ever so slightly to allow yourself to become excited because you sense there is a whole other outcome that is possible for you – an outcome outside of the limiting one that you have grown so accustomed to.

How do you begin to honour this ‘well of wisdom’ and truth bubbling within your depths? The answer is simple.  You speak your truth.  Yes, there is fear but you feel the fear and do it anyway! Why? Because when you speak your truth, you unwittingly give your entire body and being permission to energetically shift.

In this way you also begin shifting your relationships, not only to the situations that kept you stuck but to the people and unconscious dynamics that formerly ‘held’ you in that space or role.

People will sometimes struggle to make sense of your seemingly new-found convictions. This is simply a reflection of your reality and truth beginning to shift away from the pre-defined limits and roles you – and they – unwittingly accepted because you felt you had no other choice.

Never underestimate the sheer magnificence, beauty and wisdom inherent in your spiritual self.  Being able to speak your truth is synonymous with trusting yourself and your ability to continually evolve, heal and grow.  It is the same as knowing that all is right in your world when you step into your brilliance and give yourself permission to shine. Ultimately when you speak your truth in this way, you give yourself permission to be spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically free.
