What does it mean to express yourself? It sounds quite easy in practice, but the application of it is not always so simple. In order to express yourself, you must be able to determine what is to be expressed. What part or parts of yourself? How will that expression take place? Talking, writing, creativity, movement, exercise?
There is much more to the concept of expression than what is present in the conscious mind at the moment of expression. A personal expression can lead to deeper truths, about yourself, or your surroundings. Expressing yourself can help you to face a fear, or release an old pattern.
There is a part of you that is begging to be expressed at any given moment. Are you going to allow that expression to flow freely? Try your best not to give into the judgment or doubt that can try to kick in.
Everyone expresses themselves subtly in many ways. What are you saying without even knowing it? Sometimes those words and phrases we use over and over again can guide us to what we need to release.
Or, perhaps you have a fear of expressing yourself at all. Look at this fear, what emotions come along with it? What life experiences is this fear based on? Most of the time expression is rooted in worthiness and feeling worthy of being seen, heard, recognized.
Look at that phrase again, “Express Yourself” Why not try it one new way today?
What energy are you still holding on to from your past? Are you carrying around old items, papers or pictures that remind you of bad memories? Are you holding on to things for a “rainy day”? All of these physical items are attached to your own emotional baggage.
What in your life would you like to manifest? Do you want to manifest a relationship? Find out what physical and emotional attachments to your last relationship keep you from moving forward. Do you want to manifest a new home? Go through old papers and photos and purge any attachments to old dwellings and old energy.
Only when you create an empty space, both physically and emotionally, can you begin to fill it with the object you are working towards manifesting. Once you have purged the items and emotions related to your past experiences, only then can you open up a space to be filled with the new energy that you are welcoming in.
In order to manifest, first the thought must be there and then Spirit begins to move energy toward your desired outcome. But, if you are blocking it with emotional memories, or physical items, you have been unable to release, then this will slow or even stop the flow before your thought can become reality.
When you are unable to release things on a emotional or physical level, you put more blocks in the way of the fruition of your hopes, wishes and dreams. When manifesting, the energy must come through all of your bodies, spiritual (or etheric), mental, emotional and then physical, in order to come into being.
Look around your home, your car, your computer and clear out the things that you no longer need or use, or things that are attached to the energy of the past. Donate them to someone who can use them, or dispose of them. You will feel lighter with each load that you let go of and your energy will begin to change immediately.
