Believe in Yourself to Express Fully Who You Are

Don’t allow anyone who does not know who you are most completely to affect who you know yourself to be. I write this in the month of the Communicator archetype and, for me, after having just watched the brilliant Broadway stage play about the life of Carol King, Beautiful.

There are people who may think they know or understand you but who really cannot because they lack a complete picture or do not have a full or genuine interest in your life’s work. But you do. Stand true to who you know yourself to be and for the work that you have done and will do, for your purpose and mission in this world.

Sometimes in fact it is those who are closest to you–family, close friends, even a partner–who think they know you best (and who  you believe understands you well) whose limited perceptions can hurt you most deeply or effectively, if you allow that. They are not to be blamed; they do not have a  full understanding because they have only seen a small portion of your work or service. They have known you for a long time perhaps though only see you on occasional visits, and their lives are much different than yours in terms of expertise and priorities. In the end…sigh…all you can do is love them and hold your own understanding close to your heart and shielded.

In Beautiful, we see a brilliant young lady whose mother tries at first to persuade her to teach rather than to compose and sing. She begins a successful career in the pop music field, allowing a man whom she later marries to write the lyrics to music she writes. All well and good but it takes divorcing him after his philandering and unstable influence for her to ultimately return to the deeper reservoirs of her own talent, her own musical sensibility and brilliance, her own heart; and to her own voice. Once she writes her own lyrics again, she transforms not only her own self expression but the world, with songs and compositions unheard of in their purity and strength.

Our Communicator speaks from the deep Heart Center, from Soul. Whether or not another person in your life has found that center, you have the responsibility and indeed the obligation to let your heart light shine as brightly and as passionately as you can.
