Most of us grew up with love and wonder in our hearts, we could easily express our emotions and feelings. As children if we were happy we smiled and giggled, if we were sad we cried, got mad, threw a tantrum. We were free to be. Along the way we began to become programmed, we would shout with glee and someone would say “quiet down” we would cry over a disappointment and would hear “ its not that big of a deal, or it’s not worth crying over” I am not suggesting that there isn’t a time and a place for expressing these emotions, sitting in a restaurant and “shouting gleefully” probably is not that appropriate. But I am saying that this programming that I am speaking of has profoundly affected our adult lives. So many people are becoming aware of peoples energies, making determinations on what their instincts are telling them about that person, it is a much more intangible state of being, but none the less it is becoming wildly popular. If we are not being our “Authentic self” people will notice.
Lets see how you feel about being Authentic vs False
Authentic – http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary describes authentic as:
1 – obsolete : authoritative
2 – a : worthy of acceptance or belief as conforming to or based on fact <paints an authentic picture of our society> b : conforming to an original so as to reproduce essential features <an authentic reproduction of a colonial farmhouse> c : made or done the same way as an original <authentic Mexican fare>
5 – : true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character
Authentic = True to one’s own personality, spirit or character.
1 – : not genuine <false documents> <false teeth>
2 – a : intentionally untrue <false testimony> b : adjusted or made so as to deceive <false scales> <a trunk with a false bottom> c : intended or tending to mislead <a false promise>
3 – : not true <false concepts>
4 – a : not faithful or loyal : treacherous <a false friend> b : lacking naturalness or sincerity <false sympathy>
False = Not genuine, lacking naturalness or sincerity.
It would seem pretty obvious who you are drawn to right? Yet, so many people are running around the planet being false. Another word for False is “Fake”.
