Getting “Real” Really Is Key


16141430_b0ac4bb6f1Little by little I’m seeing that people are coming to understand that there’s more to creating change than simply being “positive” and reciting affirmations, which is so refreshing. And so it seems that another round of inner reflection about your emotional landscape is coming up as an important topic again to reflect on, as you are working with integrating the deep roots of your experience.

I’ve written a lot on this subject including this August post:

It’s Okay to Feel ~ Allowing Your Humanness To Be The Reflection Of Divinity It Is.

So I smiled when I read this short MindBodyGreen article, a few days ago, by Aimee Dufresne: 

Stop Being “Positive” and Start Getting Real (Joy) In Your Life

In it, Aimee shares a few of her own simple hints and good places to start, to help you to “get real”.

As she puts it, just being positive is:

….”like trying to fit into the cutest pair of shoes that you want so badly but the only size available is a half size smaller than your feet. So you push and prod and tell yourself you can do it. You can bend your big toe and walk at an odd angle. Maybe the shoes will stretch if you wear them long enough. That chaffing isn’t so bad, is it?

Yes, it is. The further you push and force yourself into something that doesn’t fit, the more struggle and angst you will feel.”

So, if you have found yourself doing some of the spiritual bypassing, “fluffiness”, or denial with your emotions, where you “fake” a reality of feeling, crack a smile, and simply affirm otherwise, then you may want to check the links out and revisit your natural feelings in a deeper, holistic way.
