Let's Get Naked
Let’s get naked, although not in
the way you think. I’m not talking about shedding our clothes, I’m talking
about shedding the baggage we have accumulated throughout the course of our
life. The emotional baggage we carry with us each and every day.
We may be so comfortable with this
baggage, we may not even notice how it impacts our health, and well-being. The
baggage I’m talking about is our false beliefs, our negative self-talk, and our
self-doubt, among others. Another common form of baggage is our need to blame
others for the way our lives have turned out.
The list of emotional things we may
need to shed could go on for a while. But the intention is to return to the
truth of who we are. The person we were when we were born, naked, lacking any
When we think of shedding the
emotional baggage that does not serve our greater good, do we become
overwhelmed? Or are we comfortable with our baggage, and would prefer to remain
clothed in its negative energy?
Can we shed this negativity and
discover the truth of who we are? With these thoughts in mind a conversation
with my Inner Voice may shine a light on our naked truth. My questions will be
How do we collect emotional baggage
as we walk through life?
Much of this baggage as you call it,
has come from a lack of self-worth. As a young child, you were unsure of
yourself, how you fit in, uncertain of your role as a person, or afraid to make
mistakes so you would not draw attention to yourself. It is in this frame of
mind where you began to trust those around you instead of learning to trust
This baggage becomes the way you go
through your day. Asking others for their opinion of you, and learning if you
have worth by how others treat you. If for some reason you are treated poorly,
you may have chosen to change who you were to please them. In doing so, you
began to distance yourself from the truth of who you were.
In time, it may be easier to accept
the weight of this baggage rather than question its usefulness to your life.
The thought of questioning your beliefs, of looking within to uncover the truth
of who you are, may be too challenging, or too frightening. With these
challenges it may be easier to remain under the load of your baggage.
Our baggage can become such a part
of our lives, we may not realize we are carrying this emotional load. How do we
begin to shed this load and return to the naked truth of who we are?
To begin the process of returning
to your authentic self, it is important to examine your thoughts, and beliefs,
to see if they are founded in love or not. Those that have no foundation in
love are those that should be discarded from your awareness. Another way to
know if a thought, or belief is centered in love is to look at how the world
treats you. Are you surrounded by kind, compassionate and loving people? Do
things flow easily for you, or do you believe the world is working against you?
When you begin to shed your
emotional baggage you will be lifted to a higher state of consciousness through
your increased awareness of your inner self-love. As love becomes the way in
which you experience life, you will be returning back to the truth of who you
are. This truth is pure, unconditional love.
By shedding our emotional baggage
we come face to face with the truth of who we are, and this truth is pure love?
When you came into you physical
body at birth you knew of this love. Through life you have picked up many
emotional traumas along the way. These traumas have separated you from your
truth. By questioning your beliefs, you begin to shed those that have been
keeping you from experiencing the truth of who you are.
As you release more and more of
these negative, emotional experiences from your consciousness, you will begin
to reconnect with your authentic self. It is in this powerful, emotional place
where you will understand the truth of who you are, this truth is love,
kindness and compassion..
Is it possible to shed our
emotional baggage and accept the love that is the truth of who we are?

Each week I email a
newsletter/article to those who have subscribed to my weekly. This week I wrote
about redefining selfishness. Here is an excerpt.
Is it selfish to eat healthy food? Is it selfish to want a warm,
dry place to live? Is it selfish to love ourselves? When these questions are
asked with our new definition, the true answers would be a resounding, yes.
Then why is taking the best possible care of ourselves so challenging at times?
