"Love has a powerful way of removing the mask we all insist on wearing." ~Jessy
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
With Halloween approaching, the topic of costumes is a favorite. We love to have fun thinking about and selecting “the one” that depicts our most recent fascination or the one that just feels like the most fun. Or even more likely, we talk about what SuperHero our kids or grandkids are going to "be."
This special holiday is all about having fun pretending to be someone we really aren’t. But what does this have to do with finding the treat in who you really are?EVERYTHING!
More than a decade ago when I took a new path to finding more authentic happiness, I realized that the real me was hidden underneath years of wearing my “costume.” Of course, at the time, I didn’t think of it as a costume at all. That’s the irony of it all. It was a very comfortable costume that I wore every day. I believed it to be me through and through. It wasn’t that I didn’t have some fun being me, but I just didn’t know what I know now…that there is so much beyond what I had normalized my thinking to believe.
But, what I know now is that the real me, and the real you, is inside of ourselves. As we tap into the real power of love that we are, we take off our costume that we have been wearing for so long. We unleash our true magnificent selves and all the potential that we have at our fingertips. We can become an even greater version of ourselves. We can have so much more fun than we ever realized was possible!
Who are we really? We are incredibly brilliant beings with the amazing ability to be, do, and have whatever we want, all in a way that feels so good. We can have more joy and freedom, find more purpose in our lives, have great health, more loving relationships, and get hired for that fun job that pays well. In fact, all of it comes as a result of increased levels of true happiness, which takes us to calm. A calm mindset is the key. And yes, it is even possible to make real miracles happen. (One study reported that 84% of those surveyed believe in them.) Personally, I see them occur often for my clients, so I know they can happen for everyone.
How? Take off your costume and look at the real you! The true you inside is a trace of the real and magnificent Source of Infinite Power that exists. That trace is love. You may call it by a different name (Greater Consciousness, God or Source Energy, Spirit, etc.) Whatever the name, love is the power, and there is no limit to how much of it we can feel. It is ever abundant.
We have so much more to offer ourselves and others as we open up to the infinite possibilities of who we really are. We must think, speak, and act from a place of love.
Here’s how to get started in shedding your "costume", realizing your true potential, and getting what you want this Halloween and forever after:
1. Feel love for yourself more that you ever have. Also feel more love for everyone and everything else in the same way, knowing that we are all connected.
2. Have fun with everything you do! Smile and laugh a lot. And do not underestimate the power of fun. As you have fun feeling more love than ever before, you will have more fun than ever before. It’s a wonderful upward spiral!
3. Be grateful all day long, and say “I love you” and "thank you" with heartfelt emotion as often as you can. Be thankful for all that you already have, and for everyone, including you. Make it an all day long habit.
As you make these profound yet simple changes in your life, you will feel so good.
And, of course, that is so important because we create our world based on how we feel!
Make every day an absolutely magical day full of love, gratitude, and fun...
and you will see changes in your life beyond what you ever could have imagined!
Have an absolutely magical day full of love, gratitude, and fun, fun, fun!
