Card: Be Yourself – from the Magical Messages from the Fairies Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.
“You’re most powerful and effective when you’re genuine and authentic with yourself and others. If you pretend to feel, act, or be something other than yourself, you lose awareness of your feelings, which are a source of important guidance.”
Message from the Faeries: This week we would like to remind you that it is always okay, no matter what, to be yourself. Be yourself at all times. Be true to yourself no matter what. We know that this is often easier said then done. You sometimes want to hide yourself or your true feelings because you are afraid of what others might think of you, or you afraid of the consequences.
Here is the thing – not matter what you say or do, at any given moment, is going to result in an action or reaction. There is no possible way of avoiding this. Everything you say or do is going to cause a chain reaction of events to unfold. A simple example would be: You walk into a room, you pick up a tv remote, you turn the tv on, this causes a new source of light and sound to enter into the room, which captures your attention, then the tv show you watch is a sad story and then you cry. Every single thing you do creates a result. Even just breathing results in your very survival.
What is it that you are really afraid of? What is stopping you from feeling like you can’t be yourself? Who is stopping you from feeling like you can’t say or do as you feel you should? Without a doubt, we can say that the only person that is really stopping you from being yourself is you. Nobody has the right to stop you from expressing your true thoughts and feelings. Your fear comes from past experiences and the potential from them to reoccur. It’s true that you have no control over how people are going to react to what you say or do. This is our point. It doesn’t matter how people react. This might be really difficult for you to grasp. We understand that you don’t want to hurt anyone or upset somebody’s feelings. Please understand this: if you are being your true, authentic self, you are automatically coming from an honest place. You are coming from the heart, not from a place of fear.
It’s true that there still may be an uncomfortable fall-out as a result of you being your authentic self, and speaking your truth. Please know that this is okay. It’s okay to feel uncomfortable. It’s okay if other people are uncomfortable. These are signs. If you are around people who do not like your authentic self, then you are around people who are not in alignment with who you are or who you are becoming. It may be time to surround yourself with new friends or to place yourself in a different environment. It could also mean that there was some healing that needed to be done, and your words or actions have triggered this healing to begin. When people are forced to look at themselves as a result of your words, this can be a bit uncomfortable. This is their issue, not yours, but you may be able to assist them if both parties are willing. It could also mean that the people in your life are just not used to you being yourself and they may need some time to adjust to your changes. Try to be patient and give people the time and space they need to decide if they want to be with you. If they choose not to, then it’s time for both of you to move on. We know it can be challenging or painful to have to let go of people or situations, but when you are true to yourself, you will do whatever it takes to be in a place of love for yourself and others. You can only do this by being yourself.
This brings us to the most important part. Being yourself means being honest and loving towards yourself no matter what the cost. This is the greatest act of self-love. You are saying to the Universe that no matter what, you deserve love and respect. When you love and respect yourself, when you listen to your heart and allow it to be heard, you are sending out the most important message: I AM. I AM ME. I AM LOVE. This allows all of your prayers, intentions and words to carry across the heavens to be heard. You become in direct alignment with the divine. Your true self, no matter what, is your divine self. So tell us, who else would you want to be?
We love you.
