Okay.. so here's the thing. I consider myself a sister goddess (read Mama Gena's book).......or as I like to say "story star". I try to surround myself with other sister goddesses and other story stars. I try to live as juicy as I can. It doesn't happen all the time.... because I also suffer from PMS. During that time, I am a total fucking bitch goddess.... But you can read about that in another post.
Women who declare themselves as story stars have the magic.
Hey girls! "You've got to fall in love with yourselves first... and then the world will follow." (Mama Gena)
Being authentic is about being true to who you really are and developing intimacy with others based on this truth. (throw sex into the mix and you have yourselves a guaranteed orgasm) I'm sorry...this is where my mind goes and I have no control over it. :)
Authenticity requires being real. Declaring this is who I am and I'm not afraid to show you.
It also involves caring about what others have to say and taking a genuine interest. Trying to listen with your heart and opening up your soul. I said try. Let's face it. This doesn't work all the time. Some people are shut off, shut down....(or the type you wish would shut up). When I manage to make that kind of connection, however, I revel in it. It fills my soul. Touching someone's life is really the essence of who we should try to be. Anything else is kind of a waste of one's time.
I think that's one of the strengths of living an authentic life..... and I think it's what makes story stars magical in any given moment. Everyone has this ability... but soooo many people live their lives on the surface.... talking about superficial things....playing a part. We all do sometimes. However, I know that when I feel a warm heart in my presence I want to showcase my own. This is what will draw people to you. Find the good in yourself as well as everyone around you.... and just sparkle.
