How To Obtain The Freedom To Be A Authentic Person

“To deprive a man of his natural liberty… is starvation of the soul.”

–Mahatma Gandhi

 

What is an Authentic Person? 

 
An authentic person’s authenticity is in the daily expression of their core beliefs and personality. The more important part of the authenticity question is to look at the character of the person. What’s behind what they say? To be authentic, you need to examine and accept yourself for who you are. And evolving into the best version of yourself that you can be.
 
To get freedom with greater mental, emotional, and spiritual health. You must be willing to go on a journey that will transform your life. This journey will need your full participation.
 
When a person is authentic, it means that they act in ways that are genuine and show how they feel. Rather than putting on different faces. Around different people, or tailoring their personality based on surroundings.
 
My heart’s desire is to empower. To grow into my God-created authentic self. To liberate the souls of humanity, who desire to take that journey, to do the same.
 
My personal relationship with God has given me the strength and power to live. In the liberty created for me to be free.
 
Authentic people display a consistent set of values.
We currently live in a world where some have a belief in God. While others may not at all or not in the same way as a group of other people who may believe in God. But expresses their allegiance through their religion.
 
The truth of the matter is we are all human beings who have souls. We are spirit beings, living in dirt bodies, which own a living soul.

The election of Donald Trump becoming President of The United States of America.
 
The moral decay and the foolish concepts in the hearts of some American’s have raised the question.
 
How do we get back to the original purpose and intent for which we all live and should have our very existence?
 
How do our souls get realigned with love, joy, peace, health, wealth, prosperity and success? Where do we start? What does it mean to be an authentic soul? How can we empower ourselves to live more authentic?
 
These are questions that we should explore and meditate on. Get answers to move us toward our goal of authentic living.
 
One of my favorite teachers to ever walk the earth is a Rabbi by the name of Jesus, He stated, “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life.
 
I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live free and light.” (Matthew 11:29-30 MSG)
 
Well, on my journey I went looking for this rest and what it exactly meant. In my search through knowledge and wisdom. I found a book by Cindy Trimm entitled “The 40 Day Soul Fast: Your Journey to Authentic Living”. It is about finding rest and restoration for your soul.
As she states when all is well with the souls of humanity all will be well in the world.”
 
It is important as individuals that we are able to be the difference we want to see in the world. We as individual souls must be the change, the love, the peace we want to experience in society.
 
It will be electric, contagious and spill over into our environments as well as the entire world.
 
I am eager to take this journey and hopefully, you who are reading this will take it with me. Together, we will be the change we desire to see in the world.
 
One of the most insightful and misunderstood things. That keeps us from running with purpose and confidence. Is the precise, or trivial details, that ties up our souls creating soul ties. Through experiences, events, habits, relationships, desires, objectives and spirits. That ensnare our souls and hold us back from our God-given purpose.
 
These entanglements cause us to go through life with weights slowing us down. Keeping us down, burdening our souls, and sometimes knocking the wind out of us. Keeping us from confidence and moving forward in the directions of our destiny.

5 Steps To Engage Your Authentic Self

1.  Accept yourself for who you are. Period!

Focus on accepting and appreciating who you are as a unique individual. This will lead to authentic behaviors in line with your personality. Means that you should embrace your quirks and the distinct parts of your personality. Being comfortable with yourself requires you to accept that you are not perfect.
 

2. Sustain your self-esteem.

It is hard to act in a way that is genuine to your personality. If you doubt yourself or lack confidence in yourself. People who lack self-esteem often try to act like people they perceive to be confident. Priding oneself and acting as if they’re confident. This is a key sign of inauthenticity and insecurity. 
 
If you have some emotional baggage, give yourself the time to think about it and move on if possible. Talk to a therapist or a counselor if necessary. Take care of your mental health.
 

3. Act on your personal beliefs and values.

Authentic people are in touch with their moral compass and their personal set of beliefs. These beliefs should be evident in your daily behaviors.

Use these 5 steps to engage your authentic self.

 


In the award-winning book. Renovation of the Heart: Putting On the Character of Christ (Designed for Influence). Dallas Willard observed the “thoughts, feelings, and intentions we are aware of. Only a small part of the ones that are there in our depths. They often are not the ones most revealing of who we actually are. And why we do.”
 
He added “The hidden dimension of each human life is not visible to others, nor is it graspable even by us. We usually know very little about the things that move in our own soul. The deepest level of our life, or what is driving it.”

We must allow ourselves to become more acquainted with our authentic selves by going through the process of discovering who we really are, by taking on the assistance of this guide during this series of teachings, and inspirations, to examine all of our objectives and relationships, leading us onto a new path of success and prosperity, is the goal we desire to achieve.

It’s high time we walk into the light of who we are.

“Be your authentic self. Your authentic self is who you are when you have no fear of judgment. Before the world starts pushing you around and telling you who you are supposed to be. Your fictional self is who you are when you have a social mask on to please everyone else. Give yourself permission to be your authentic self.” – Dr. Phil McGraw

To get the freedom to be your authentic self. Requires you to be open to do the work to receive a life of freedom! Authenticity is ultimately about those qualities that show healthy non-defensive functioning and psychological maturity. Those are the qualities we need to look for.
 
“Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you.” (Galatians 5:1 MSG)
