Be True! Be You!

Would you like to connect more deeply to your true self and be more ‘you’? I believe this is what everyone wants, deep down.

I believe in continually discovering and expressing who I really am and I love empowering other people to do the same, so I’ve taken almost three decades of life experiences, meditation, self-development books, audio programmes and videos, and condensed them into 16 of the most important things that I’ve learned – and have helped me – along the way… Here’s the result:

Be True! Be You! Simple strategies to empower you to connect to the real you and live from a place of total authenticity.

In this book you will learn: how to connect to your true self; why everything is OK; how to meditate and breathe; the ‘1% rule’; how to deal with negative thoughts; how to be kind to yourself; how to get what you want; and more! You even get a bonus poem!

Poem: Darkness Turns to Light

When it dawns on you, this frightening terror,

And wherever you turn you’ll be making an error,

And it runs through your body and across your face,

You’ll be stumbling and falling, falling from grace.

Your calm goes out of the window – and door,

And what’s left are the bits of a big jigsaw

All laid out before you, and the stage is set

For self-destruction to leave you in a happiness debt.

Chaos is there with a front row seat,

Bringing you down, turning up the heat;

The fear is rising, it’s rearing its head,

And it’s bursting with pain, all angry and red.

It consumes you, takes over, and even though you try,

It’s all just too much so you do nothing but cry.

And you feel you’ve had more than enough,

You simply can’t carry any more stuff.

But what if it’s all just a challenge, a test,

And really it’s perfect when you thought it was messed?

What if it makes you much wiser and strong,

And everything was okay, all along?

What if you find the courage to let it be as it is,

And watch it drift past with a gentle fizz?

What if you realised your deepest pain,

Is the source of all you’d ever want to gain?

Imagine a world with no challenge in sight;

You’d never be happy, despite thinking you might.

Within all the pain, the hate and the doubt,

Is a joy that’s so strong, waiting to come out.

Know that it’s there – it’s always been inside you,

The answers are coming and soon you’ll feel new,

We’re always just right, wherever we are,

And you’ll shine bright once again, bright like a star!

Poem: Chains

Here’s a poem I wrote that I wanted to share:

The chains that restrain you and make you feel down,

The ones that take over and force you to frown;

Some you can identify, some you can’t,

When you think they’re there forever, know that they aren’t…

When you acknowledge the chains – it’s hard, I know,

They’ll loosen their grip and let you grow;

When you understand why they’re there at all,

You’ll realise right then they don’t want you to fall…

When you’re kind to the chains and focus on peace,

They’ll reward your compassion and you’ll feel them release;

The strain will be gone and you’ll be free to be free,

Like a bird in the air, soaring  over a tree…

It’s scary to think of yourself with no chains,

But without them to drain you you’ll have control of the reigns.

Love will flow in the spaces they leave,

And you’ll find out what magic life’s got up it’s sleeve.
