I know that I am not the only one to struggle with telling the truth about how I feel. I know I am not alone.
I have thought for years that I am an honest person and always thought I was a truthful person. I am realizing more and more lately that the idea I had of “truthfulness” is a bit skewed.
I can’t be completely truthful if I am being in-authentic or if I am only kinda sorta telling the truth, but not enough to hurt somebody’s feelings. I am definitely not being honest If I push the truth away because it will cause a painful chain of events. This all equals living in a very dishonest state with myself.
I was so honored to have a conversation on the phone today with the amazing Frank Gjata. I was left feeling inspired and motivated. Frank opened my eyes up to a way of telling the truth that allowed me to be 100% my most authentic self. It would awaken my spirit and allow for there to be no conflict at the same time. I was all ears. This is exactly what I need in my life now.
Here is a great video that explains The Unarguable Truth.
Here is a easy to follow definition
The Basic Shift: Telling the Unarguable Truth
The unarguable truth is a truth that does not produce argument. It is an attitude as much as a technique. A good starting place is describing your personal experience as literally as possible. Start with physical sensations (“my palms are sweaty”), then go to core emotions (“I am feeling scared/sad/angry/joyful/sexy”) and finally acknowledge thoughts (“I am thinking that you don’t like me.”).
I am committed to learning to communicate in this new way. I am learning how to speak from what is happening inside of me. To speak from my heart. To be authentic.
There are no accidents in life. This truth concept is a big one for me at the present moment. I have a speech to do for Teacher Training and I chose to do mine on the subject of Truthfulness.
Clearly there is something inside of me that is dying to come out. I have finally come to a crossroads in my life where the time has come for me to be truly authentic. I can no longer live any other way.
I was told this weekend by somebody that I love very much that, “I am not expressed, that the light and joy inside of me needs to come out not just sometimes but all the time.” After seeing the amazing Wayne Dyer this weekend it really struck a chord inside of me.
Wayne said something this weekend that I take very seriously. He said the following:
DON’T DIE WITH YOUR MUSIC STILL IN YOU!
I don’t plan on it. So I shall start with truthfulness. This will be the first step in letting my music out.
