Did You Ever Feel You Had to Forsake Your Truth in Order to Win Approval?

Image

flowerBy Barbara Rose, PhD

Did you learn to cater to others to win approval and validation? Did you find that once you learned that pattern, it was like a vicious cycle? I did. No matter how much I gave and did, I still never felt validated. I still searched for approval.

The traits that you have learned to disown within yourself are the very traits that will set you free to be all of who you truly are–once you own them.

You, just like me,

Must face your truth at all times and in every area of your life. It is only by living out your truth, when your mind, heart, words, and actions are all congruent, all perfectly aligned, that you will begin to feel whole. And as a result, your self-esteem is going to skyrocket.

Many times

we strive for acceptance at the expense of the higher knowing in our heart, our truth, and what we genuinely believe is good for us. We sacrifice it all for the sake of acceptance.
There is no thing you can gain on the outside that will make you more worthy, lovable, or accepted.

KNOW YOURSELFIt is also pivotal for you to understand that the goal of knowing yourself has nothing to do with material gain; the goal is to express that which brings you profound joy. That expression is the reason you came into this life to begin with.

You have a purpose.

It is called service. Service is not servitude. The service I am speaking of comes from within your heart. The joy you feel from authentically serving cannot ever be taken away from you because its expression is you!
Many people I have met are just like you and me: our greatest adversities in life became our greatest teachers once we decided to seek a higher perspective rather than remaining stuck, feeling victimized. Once we took personal responsibility to create new circumstances from our truth, we began to create a new life.

What you feel passionate about matters. It is your individual expression of the divine within that cannot ever be duplicated.

It is paramount

that you release all self-judgment. The voice of the critical parent in your mind must be transformed into the voice of your dearest and best friend–and that friend must be you.
You cannot be effective, take risks, and expose your authentic purpose when you have much self-doubt and criticism blocking the divine flow of your energy. You can only create and give birth to your greatest self when you accept all of yourself from this moment–now–exactly as you are.

Never put anyone above or below you.
Release all judgment of yourself and others.
Release all false beliefs that anything outside of you will bring you permanent peace of mind and joy.
Realize that expressing your joy in whatever capacity you can and giving from your heart whatever you are able to give are virtues that will reward you.

When you begin to feel miserable

No matter what you have or don’t have on the outside, examine the storm clouds in your mind and notice how they have gathered so much momentum by unconsciously following the ego’s direction that you find yourself feeling anxious, worried, and in deep pain.
To train your mind is simply a matter of becoming aware of exactly what is going through it, a matter of noticing it and acknowledging it just as you would a passing cloud, and then consciously redirecting your focus to something beneficial and positive.

This does not mean that you ignore or disregard a negative situation. It means that you turn the negative around to find the gifts within it and ask yourself what you can do now to improve your feelings and situation.

One thing you must always remember: there is an indwelling divine spirit within you that no condition can ever extinguish.

Tempted By Death Excerpt

Image

Shocked by Divine communication, Barbara shares what resulted in an immediate reversal of suicide plan.

The plan that culminated in my own humiliating decision to end my life by “natural” means was shattered when I received direct shocking Divine communication letting me know exactly what would happen after the fact, and most importantly, gave me the information I am guided to share with you, to help you transform the illusion of death’s temptation in order to spare you from afterlife torture.

All information in this book is pure truth that can absolutely deter teen and adult suicide. This is for any person, from any culture, and every walk of life. It is written in a more scholarly manner to appeal to schools globally to catapult teen suicide awareness and prevention.

…We all need real, down to earth, genuine answers. We need them from someone who has been through this whole process. I bow my head saddened for all who are shocked reading these words. And at the same time, I raise my head and heart to make as much of a difference as possible… to awaken you to your “meltdown quotient”… By reading this book you are being given advance information that you do not have to experience in order to acquire it. Fortunately for you, I have been through the living hell of such a process and I am deeply grateful it is behind me.

I believe you will be deeply grateful as well for many reasons.

The most important truth is busting the illusion that “death” will release you from any emotional turmoil within your consciousness.

So let us begin this life giving journey by starting at the end – as I now share with you the information I was given that shocked me so, I immediately changed my mind, reversed my decision, and use the saying that was given to me within my mind to “Give Life a Chance.”

“You Will Not Go to Heaven”

I was driving my car fully waiting for a big storm to hit my area. I had decided I did not want to live another hour or day. And yet, I abhor violence. So I thought I was cleaver to reenact an incident I had been through when I was ten years old. Back then in 1972 I was walking home on a long road from the bus stop to my home after school. It was pouring rain and I was soaked. I became very ill with Scarlet Fever, going in and out of consciousness. I overheard my doctor tell my Mom outside my bedroom door that he was not sure I would make it.

I was petrified thinking I was going to die. But Dr. Flemming’s invention of penicillin saved my life. The only difference between just a few weeks before I wrote this book and 1972 is that this time I devised a plan to sit out in the pouring rain on a cold early February morning, throw away all ID, get sick, get Scarlet fever or any equivalent and simply die “by natural causes” from deliberately not seeking medical help.

Six Weeks Earlier – “Promise Me”

It was only six weeks earlier that the words of God flowed into my mind just as they do for every human being on earth. The words were; “Promise me you will not take your life“.

Being Prepared for Meltdown

As soon as those words flowed into my mind I knew it would have something to do with my immediate family.
Who or what makes no difference. Whether a parent or child pass on, move away is irrelevant.
The only thing that is relevant is to know your “Meltdown Quotient” (Read: “I can handle anything else but that“.)

Whatever “that” is, is different for each person and universal in emotional meltdown of some sort that precedes new knowledge, wisdom, realization and awakening that culminates in a new lease on life.

Making the Promise

With great respect for your personal beliefs as to the source of all knowing inner guidance, by whatever name you use shall suffice. Personally, I call this source God. I hesitated knowing a whopper was about to blast me and my life apart if I was being asked directly to “Promise me you do not take your life.”
It was heavy, but after debating for a few minutes I made the promise.

Meltdown

“It” happened. That most cherished, sacred part of my life, my immediate relative who shall forever remain anonymous was suddenly no longer “in” my life.
Bear in mind that during this time I was completely homeless. You would think a “bestselling author” of seventeen books could not possibly actually become homeless. But I did, and yet this was not my “Meltdown Quotient.” Yes I felt so ashamed, humiliated and degraded, but nowhere near the catastrophic emotional meltdown that blasted through my heart – leaving me with only one desire – death.

How to Finally Live Your Life with Passion

Image

Your Life

By Barbara Rose, PhD

You know you’re living your life with passion if you can say, “If someone offered me two hundred million dollars per week to give up what I’m doing, I would say, No, thank you!”

That’s all fine, well and good, but you may be wondering, “how do I get there?”

The key to living this way is to first eliminate those tasks, adult people, obligations and associations that you are not deeply enjoying.

Second, it is imperative that you take some time out of your schedule and really ask yourself what has been some of the most difficult periods of your life? You may wonder what this has to do with living a life with passion, so I will share this with you, now.

Living a life with deep passion means living a life with deep meaning. It may very well be those precise areas of your life where you have endured great hardship, and became determined to turn it around, that you find you can share the same with others.

Then you are a beacon of hope. First for yourself, and for others by way of your example. You will share from your heart just to make a difference, because it feels good, and not for any ulterior motive or reason.

flower

You will feel validated from within because you will be living from your heart, rather than the fears in your head. This requires courage, and many times it is not easy. If I were to tell you it is easy all of the time, I would be lying to you.

It is scary to move into unfamiliar territory, but it is even scarier to wither away and watch your lifetime slide by without ever taking a pure and positive risk.

Furthermore, you do not ever need another person’s permission, stamp of approval, understanding, or validation to be and express who you are. The only person’s stamp of approval you need is your own.

When you begin to worry about what others think, immediately turn your attention to how you feel, and what you prefer. Then, follow through in your actions one moment at a time.

So many people worry about how it’s all going to turn out, at leas I used to. But what I have found to be so empowering is to follow through in the moment because it feels true and good to me, and I know my motives are pure. They are not attached to an outcome. It is the process of living out what you love from your heart, because that aspect of you carries deep meaning to you, that it will naturally touch the lives of others who need what you are sharing.

Perhaps they need a role model who has “been there” and who can relate. Perhaps you will attract other people with whom you collaborate and work together to spread the word about what you are sharing with the world.

There is one thing that passion can never be; it can never be bought. It’s something you feel in your heart, and you feel a great deal of joy during your process. Does this mean you’ll never have a difficult or sad day? No, it means that when you do, you know it will pass, and you have a great deal of purpose and meaning backing you, which adds to the joy you experience in your day to day life.

Here are some suggested guidelines that you can follow.

Only follow through with what feels true to you, as long as it does not bring harm to anyone or anything.

Make sure your motive is pure, without being tied to an agenda or an outcome.

Be certain that what you are sharing truly matters to you in your heart.

Keep putting it out there on a consistent basis because people will resonate with and relate to what you are sharing.

Honor what makes you unique, every part of you, and cease all negative criticism.

Tell the naysayers in your life nothing! When they ask how you are, simply reply, “Good, no complaints!”

Seek out a trusting and supportive support system of people who are on a similar path and who share a lot in common with what you believe.

Dare to take a risk every time you want to create or express something, do it.

Never take insults into your being and allow them to hurt you. They are the perceptions of others, and other people are entitled to their beliefs and preferences. At the same time, continue with what you are doing.

Make your passion your “from-the-heart-mission” in life, and allow it to bloom, expand and unfold one moment at a time. Instead of worrying about how it’s all going to turn out, live it out in the moment.

Remember you are here to live, not stagnate. You are here to share the best of times and the worst of times, knowing that they all contribute greatly to your growth, and your mission.

Remember that many people who create enormous contributions in our world have experienced great adversity. That adversity strengthens us, and it teaches us a lot.

What have you learned from the adversity you have experienced?

What do you love doing?

What are your natural talents?

Start right where you are, now, this moment, and express what inspires you. Then, follow through just one moment at a time. That is really all it takes. But, it takes your deepest heart and the meaning behind what you are doing, expressing and creating that carries the most weight to living a life passionately.

If you don’t feel passionate about it, toss it.

If you feel inspired, go for it.

When you feel scared, just know that everyone feels scared moving out of their comfort zone.

Make that a positive sign of your personal growth.

Most of all live it all out from your heart, because it brings joy to your heart. That is what matters most, and that is the only way you can live a life with passion. Just start, now. You have a clean slate ahead of you.
