A New Take On Authenticity

The other day, I was walking up on my mountain and entered an energy of deeper alertness towards all of nature around me. As I noticed this, I began to receive insights about authenticity on a new level.

We may think authenticity means being an honest and genuine person who is centred in their truth, as least, that’s more or less how I was looking at it. But all of a sudden, I realised authenticity goes a whole lot deeper.

Authenticity is to be stripped right down to our pure presence. Would we even recognise our pure presence if it was staring us in the face? We might call it our savage or primitive self.

We would be bare naked, not only physically but in every sense, emotionally, mentally, energetically.

And even if we stripped off all our clothes and rubbed earth or mud or ash over our bodies, we are not authentic until we do that to our heart and mind also.

Authenticity exists on that fine precipice between life and death. It’s basic, it’s knowing we are one with the Earth and nature, and living it in every moment.

A Western man was in the Amazon with a local tribesman. He was learning how to be a shaman. The Westerner asked the tribesman, “Why is it that when I walk into the forest, all the animals and birds stop calling. It’s as though the jungle is devoid of life. But when you walk in, the forest is alive with sound?”

“The forest recognises my spirit but doesn’t know yours. You smell wrong, your mind is full of distractions, your emotions are not controlled and your body doesn’t know how to move. You don’t know who you are so the forest doesn’t know who you are. You are not one with the forest.”

“How do I become one with the forest?”

“For a start, let go of all the baggage you’re carrying.”

Here are some affirmations that will empower your connection with the Earth through your earth star chakra. Look out for Thursday’s post for more:

“I acknowledge and accept my connection to Earth.”

“I actively honour the Earth.”

“I am connected to Source through my breath.”

If there’s a word that describes Amenet’s offering to humanity, it’s power. Everything comes through so powerfully. If there’s a word that describes what brings that power through, it’s love. Amenet embodies a foundation of love and love is the vehicle that transports all she does. Amenet is a lightworker and darkworker. She walks as confidently in the shadows as she does in the sun. She knows that the shadows contain the greatest gifts and that they are created from the light. Without light, there are no shadows. Her work is rooted in truth. Her role of service is dedicated to helping others become the truth of their being, which means embodying their soul on Earth and moving forward on their journey of fulfilment. She has been gifted with extraordinary skills and abilities; an intuition as sharp as a razor, a channel as wide open as the night sky. An innate understanding of energy that enables the most profound relationship with the invisible world all around us, the world of spirit. And the ability to heal what is ready to be healed. She knows how to call in the invisible world and deliver healing to support your journey to fulfilment. She sees what others don’t see, she knows what others can only guess at. Amenet brings divine magic to all she does and invites you to engage with magic too. If you step forward to work with Amenet, you are opening up to transformation. You are inviting an acceleration of your growth and are likely to experience fundamental changes in your life, not always what you were expecting, always what you needed most. Amenet is a vehicle through which spirit moves, so you are really engaging with the universal energies and divine source that moves through her on your behalf. You are inviting their participation to answer your questions and bring the support and healing you are ready to embrace. Amenet has travelled through sixty years upon the Earth, hers is a story of being unwanted, unloved, through adoption, abandonment and rejection. She had to fight to survive abuse and learn to find her truth. She did it the hard way. It was the way that was needed to ensure she understands you and your journey, for she knows that you have walked through some dark shadows too. Amenet knows you have a story of struggle and growth, sometimes it feels too much to bear, sometimes it’s like being on top of the world. She can truly say she has been there too. She has the eyes to really see you. She has the ears to really hear you. She can look into your heart and see the soul that you are. She will help you remember who you are, that you are a being of love made of light. When everything is taken away from us, even love or worthiness, we have no other option but to go on a journey of rediscovery until we remember our truth. Our truth is that we are divine beings, the embodiment of love. The only way to embrace that truth is to walk through the dark shadows until we claim it all.
