It’s week two of the Inner Discovery Project and this week is all about showing up for yourself. So what does showing up for yourself entail?
It means becoming tuned into the frequency at which you want to vibrate (after all you are energy in motion). As in how you decide to be, feel and express yourself. Showing up for yourself means to be a conscious participant of your life. You have the power to steer the day in any direction you want it to go based on the belief of how worthy you think you are to show up for yourself.
Most of us don’t feel worthy to live our life, so we just go through life. We just go through the motions of life: up and down, in and out, right and left. We never really stop and participate. When you choose to show up for yourself you are acknowledging that you are worthy to live your life, but most of all that your well-being is important to you.
Let’s consider this example:
You have no problem showing up for your job everyday. Do you show up for your job out of fear or out of the love you have for your job (if you love your job, awesome)? We fear if we don’t go to work that day, we may get fired. What time do you get up in the morning during the weekday vs. weekend? You may get up a little later on the weekends because you don’t have to show up to work at X time. You take your time getting up, you even sleep in a little.
My point is – When we show up with love, then we are choosing to do so because we love ourselves. We are deciding that we are worthy. We value ourselves enough to show up for ourselves. The more you can begin to allow yourself to feel worthy and act as if you are, the more you will be able to commit to showing up for yourself.
Watch the video below to learn six ways that you can begin to show up for yourself today:
A few things I have begun to do that help me to show up for myself (that you can also do in addition to the things I mentioned in the video):
Wake up earlier, even if its 10 minutes earlier // Go to bed earlier // Read something that inspires me. Right now I am reading Conversations with God Book 3 // Check my social media accounts less (especially Instagram) // Eat consistently throughout the day // Go to bed with a grateful heart // Wake up with a grateful heart // Appreciate the summer sunshine // Spend time outdoors
Ask yourself everyday: How can I show up for myself?
Before going to bed each night ask yourself: What brought me joy today?
Let’s say you want to show up for yourself and commit to doing the work, but some part of you still feels unworthy to show up yourself. Maybe you have thoughts swirling through your head that sound like: What’s the point? Loving myself is hard! I can’t commit to it. I am just not strong enough.
Your point of worthiness does not and will not come from an outside source, it will always come from within you. If you feel yourself to be worthy, life will reflect that right back to you. Life is always responding to how you feel about yourself. So it’s your job to always know how you want to feel about yourself and then FEEL yourself into excitement, happiness, worthiness, abundance, loved, etc.
Now I want to take some time to recap week one. Week one was very good for me and a lot of things came up for me. I was very emotional and had a tears releasing party a.k.a. a good cry. 1). I gained clarity on why I have a hard time believing in myself. 2). I understood that in order for me to live a new story I have to let go and create a new story to tell myself. 3. I am completely capable of changing the course/direction of my life and I have the power to do so. 4. I am an unlimited being living in an unlimited Universe. 5. I am a miracle and that I have to honor it. 6. I am only as good enough as I tell myself I am. 7. I control how I want to feel about anything.
There comes a point in our lives when the pain to remain small and play victim is more painful than the pain to make the commitment, do the inner work and truly manifest what we can create.
