Authenticity is the basis of trust-building

Authenticity = radical honesty + owning desires + boundaries.

Radical Honesty
When I’m not honest with you, I put on an energetic mask. I try to be someone else.

So that you’ll like me.
So that I’ll like me.

Soon you don’t know ‘me’ at all.
You know the story of me.

Where have I not been 100% honest with:
Loved ones

But a part of you feels uneasy.
That part knows the real me is bullshitting.
I’ve broken your trust.

Dishonesty is a mask.

Owning Desires
If I don’t share my desires with you, I’m not honouring them and keeping them sacred.
How will you know what’s important to me?
Being ashamed of my desires and keeping them secret is a mask.

When I don’t hold my boundaries, I move out of integrity with my truth. Not living my truth is an energetic mask.

When we do this collectively, our energy world will reflect this mask-wearing back to us.

I’m learning that there’s nothing to be solved or saved in the outside world. My job is to walk on this planet as my authentic self.
