Between the Notes | September 2011


Greetings and welcome to our third webisode of “Between the Notes!”

As we roll into the autumn months, we feel the changes in the weather and in our bodies and need to harmonize ourselves with this seasonal change, inwardly and outwardly. This month’s video topic is authenticity, an essential characteristic for creating trust, harmony and well-being. When we are authentic, true to our deepest nature, we vibrate powerfully and uniquely. Other people around us can feel and resonate with us more clearly.

We can all sense when someone is being authentic because we can trust them, feel their vibration, and gauge how we want to relate. In the path of self-awareness authenticity often requires some inner reflection. Since we all have varying and sometimes contradictory impulses and thoughts at different times, it’s necessary to ask ourselves:

  • What are my true feelings?
  • What is my deepest knowing?
  • Am I truly expressing myself?

Sifting through the internal static via meditation, movement or self-inquiry, we can attune to the clear channel of our soul, sometimes called “the still small voice” within us. From this place of origin, of essence, we naturally emanate authenticity.

Enjoy the video interview and your comments and questions are always authentically welcome!
