From our founder, Dr. Ernest Holmes...
“That which today seems to us supernatural, after it is understood will be found spontaneously natural.” – Ernest Holmes, SOM p.75.2
Month: March 2023
Monthly Theme: Cultivating Authenticity
Weekly Topic Title: No Approval Needed
Marketing Teaser: When we embrace our own worthiness we will stop seeking for the approval of others. As children of the Divine, we are inherently worthy. Release what blocks you from accepting your Self.
A One Sentence Affirmation: I am worthy. I am loved. I am enough.
Monthly Theme Summary:
To live out loud means for us to fully express who we are and who we have come here to be. Throughout this month, we will explore the practice of cultivating authenticity which empowers us to step into all areas of our life in integrity with our real authentic self.
Brene Brown offers a definition, “Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.” (The Gifts of Imperfection, Brene Brown, Pg. 50)
Cultivating authenticity is not about becoming something other than who you are, rather it is involves us releasing those patterns of thought, attitudes, and actions that act as barriers to us standing in our personal truth and power. And by taking up this practice we develop courage to be vulnerable to stand in that truth. This month we will explore parts of the practice for authentically living out loud.
Summary of Today’s Topic:
There is no way to talk about authenticity without addressing the elephant in the room: the feelings of shame and unworthiness. Shame is universal in the human experience. It is the feeling that we are “not enough.” It is a fear of being unlovable that convinces us that if we work harder, change ourselves, keep some parts hidden from others and maybe, when we finally become enough, we will then be worthy of love and connection with others.
Learning what shame is and what triggers shame for us, we will be able to recognize it and move through it with our worthiness. Shame can become a guide for us to the areas that we do not yet love and accept ourselves. It is in those areas we are seeking our worth through the approval of others.
Suggested Science of Mind Point of View:
In Science of Mind it is one of primary principles that we are Spiritual Beings that have been made “in the image and likeness” of The Thing Itself. In the eternal past, Spirit made us of Itself which speaks to our inherent worth as a living being. Our very life is the life of God, and it is perfect, whole and complete. There was nothing lacking within us when God created us and declared all creation Good, and there was nothing lacking when we arrived on the physical plane as newborns. And there is nothing lacking now.
There is an anonymous quote that says, “When you know your worth, no one can make you feel worthless.” Our worth is not dependent on what we have done, it is what we know. The only thing that stands between us knowing our worthiness and recognize our Light is a thing of thought. Becoming aware of the unconscious thoughts and patterns that keep us embracing and living our worth empower us to step out of the darkness and let our light shine.
