Being Yourself


By Nancy Rynes, author of Awakenings from the Light 

"Be Yourself. Everyone else is already taken." ~Oscar Wilde





Every person on this planet has his or her own song to sing. We each have been gifted with a unique way of being in this world, with a one-of-a-kind presence and energy, too. Those are inherent qualities of being one spark of the Divine, a microcosm of the Divine Creation.

It's tough to be different in this society. From the time we're kids, most of us just want to fit in, disappear into the crowd, and to think and be just like everyone else. Some are terrified of the grandness of the being inside that is just waiting to be unleashed, to shine her or his true colors to the world. Others are taught that fitting in is safer and easier that giving voice to who we truly are.

From the time I was a child, I knew I didn't quite fit in. I felt I was a little different, a black sheep, and a bit of a rebel at times. I asked "Why?" a lot, which I'm sure drove my parents crazy (they told me so, many years later :-) ). I had no fears about challenging the pastor of our church with tough questions like  "Why can't women be priests? After all, Mary Magdalene was one of Jesus' most loyal followers. Why can't priests marry? Many of Jesus' disciples were married." Both I and my parents were called into his office later that where he tried to instill in me the need to just believe whatever he said. It didn't work.

My parents put me in public school the next autumn.


Later, starting in graduate school, I went through a period where all I wanted was to fit in and to have the life everyone else did. Unfortunately, following that path didn't lead exactly where I thought it would. Because I was denying my true self, I felt miserable and didn't know how to achieve happiness again. 

Misery comes, in part, from the lies we tell ourselves. We may try to convince ourselves that the crowd is the best place to be when, in fact, our soul screams for something completely different. Those lies we tell ourselves often lead to a life that doesn't quite feel right.

I didn't write about being truthful in my book. It was a part of the messages I learned in Heaven, just not explicitly stated by my Guide. After my NDE, though, I came to understand that being truly (and sometimes brutally) honest with myself was an absolute requirement in order to be the real me, and to live the life of my dreams.

If this rings true for you, I challenge you to take baby steps toward giving your beautiful, unique soul a chance to shine. The first step: be open to being different.

Pray, ask God or your angels or guides to help you simply be open to allowing your true self to shine. Ask them to help you overcome all fears and obstacles along this path. And remain open to hearing, seeing, or feeling that guidance come back to you.


Remember, you are a beautiful, loving, amazing being, just as you are right now :-)

Love and Blessings to all of you...

Nancy

In gratitude

By Nancy Rynes, author of Awakenings from the Light 

You are  magic. You are love. You are a spark of the Divine. Each one of you is a magical, light-filled being at your core, temporarily in this human body in order to live, learn, experience, enjoy life, and grow in Spirit.


Every time I'm invited to speak to a group I come away with a deeper sense of love and gratitude for all of you out there. Speaking with groups as I did in Longmont recently, I realize that I get so much from everyone who attends one of my talks. Last week in Longmont, I  had such a deep sense of the magic and divinity out there in the world in the form of all of you.




I'm also very deeply grateful to Divine Presence/Spirit/God, the angels, and my guides for allowing me to walk this path in the first place. While the accident and NDE were traumatic, and recovery difficult at times, in the end it was a worthwhile passage for me.
Every day it may seem as though things on Earth are becoming more and more difficult. That may be true for many people, but I am heartened by the numbers of you who really want to work toward something better. You want to grow, and to make a difference or have a positive influence on the world around you. Whether you attend my talks, Eben Alexander's, Anita Moorjani's, or others; every time you raise your consciousness (even a little); and every time you make a decision from a place of loving-kindness, you are having a very tangible, positive effect on the world. Remember, no act of kindness, generosity, or compassion is small in the eyes of the Divine.
I enjoy speaking so much because I get so much from connecting with you, in person and heart-to-heart. Thank you, all of you, for helping me spread the message that we can bring a bit of Heaven's love, joy, and blessings to our lives on Earth.

Thank you, all of you, for making this journey so joy-filled and inspiring for me.

Love and Blessings to all of you...

Nancy
