Speaking One’s Truth, Clear Communication, Purification

Don’t be afraid to speak your truth!

Others around you are thinking that you want things a certain way.  But they have misread you.  It is up to you to speak up and let them know EXACTLY what you want and what you expect.

Don’t be afraid of hurting other people’s feelings when you do speak up.  Why?  Because you are the one who’s feelings will ultimately be hurt if you don’t express your true desires.  Other people can’t read your mind!  It’s not fair to expect them to either!

For today, let the turquoise remind you that you must communicate honestly and openly to those around you so that all involved will be better able to get along!

    I often have trouble speaking my truth. I think it all the time! I just have trouble speaking it! Why? Because I am still a creature of fear. Fear of failure, fear of winning, but most importantly, fear of making other people uncomfortable or angry.
    I have spent most of my adult life saying yes to bosses and jobs that were in conflict with who I am inside. And saying no to the creative juices that sometimes flow unbidden. I’m slowly learning to change those behaviors. I’m having to retrain myself to ignore the clock.
    What I mean is this, when I get out of bed in the morning I have a certain routine. Doesn’t matter what time I get up, the routine stays the same. But, once that routine is over, my old routine was to get in my car and drive to a place where someone dictated what I could and could not do. There were many, many, nights when I would come home from work and I would want to just do my own thing for a while. Never seemed to happen. I was always on someone else’s time schedule.
    Part of learning to speak my truth is being able to say no. “No, I don’t want to go do something just because you happen to be off work!” I want to do what I want to do. “I’m not hungry at noon, so why should I eat then just because you do?” These are just a couple of examples.
    Whatever your truth is, you have the right and the responsibility to speak up and share it with those around you. I’m learning that for me to have the freedom I have been striving for all my life, I have to say no sometimes.

    Are you struggling with such issues? What have you learned in such cases?
