“To be authentic is to be true to one’s unique expression as an individual. It is to speak and live one’s truth in the silence of the mind. It is to act without the weight of self-reflection, knowing that all things are divine; all acts are acts of the Infinite working through us. Authenticity is therefore free of social conditioning – the attitude of a master who creates truth in each moment without fear of persecution. Authenticity is living truly and freely from the heart and creating without boundaries or restrictions, based on our unique expression.” – Almine
Being the authentic you is one of the greatest gifts you can bring to the table I think. And one of the biggest challenges in terms of reaching that part of yourself that lies beneath all the layers of personality, fear and distorted patterns. I have always longed so deeply in my heart to find the real me, and connect with what I thought and felt that I had lost, my oneness with Source.
Of all the teachings out there, all the gurus, all the new age spirituality, nothing really ever helped me make the quantum leaps that I knew were possible, it actually only helped me realize that I am not like them. You are not like them, or any other for that matter. Our uniqueness really didn’t dawn upon me until I truly got that there are no reference points. And therefore no need to compare, judge or value one another, much less attempt to control outcome. From trying to identify with the outside world to loosing all labels of identity is quite a journey and I am truly enjoying it, although it can evoke deep seated fear sometimes.
Maybe if you’re new to Almine’s teachings, if english is not your first language or you’re just not familiar with advanced metaphysics and mystical information, you might worry that it’s not for you – or feel inadequate because you just don’t understand it very well. I can tell you as a very “left brain” oriented person, letting go of my mind and its tyranny has both been a challenge and such a blessing. The need to understand and the need to know has been a major driving force in my life, so much that I couldn’t even begin to understand the scope of depth of what a more feeling based existence can bring about.
So how does one combine releasing the need to know, learning and remembering who you are at the same time? And release the feeling of not being smart enough to understand the teachings?
Well, many books and courses are translated into various languages for students to enjoy all over the world. But also just by feeling into the material will have a profound effect on you. All of Almine’s material has so many layers to it and work on many planes, behind the scenes so to speak. It is accessible through multiple senses, so whether your mind can grasp it or not, or you cognitively understand the words written or spoken, the information, the frequencies, wisdom and age old secrets will be assimilated into your being. The illusions will fall away, if you’ll let it.
Some people carry bits and pieces from online courses with them in their purse, some have a book under their bed at night to enhance their understanding of the content and many of us use the power wheels and sigils on a daily basis, have them posted on the wall etc. Not to mention the exquisite fragrant oils that helps you remember your origins.
One of the things that Almine and her teachings has really empowered me to do is to recognize truth, feel the resonance of it, to trust the Infinite and surrender to the fluid unfolding of the dance of existence. When you are prepared to release your fears, all that you thought you knew and embrace a new way of being, even if it means that you “loose” yourself, wonderful things start happening – and the true you starts to emerge.
