The Voice Within: Manifest the Life You Deserve

The ability to express oneself authentically is not only reserved for artists such as authors, filmmakers, singers, and the like.

Each and every one of us on this planet has a unique voice.

It doesn’t matter how we express ourselves orally or in writing or how we share the world.

What we communicate to the world is a reflection of who we are and who we are meant to be.

An honest voice is our identity, our brand, or our individuality…

It is possible to see a genuine voice as an externalization of your personal core.

The question is, how many of us are able to maintain frequent contact with our inner selves?

Only a small percentage of us are able to express ourselves honestly, without fear of being criticized or rejected.

Regardless of their profession or role in society — whether they are a writer or a singer or a dancer or an accountant or a mother or a son — anyone can live their life from a place of authenticity or not.

It can be difficult and confusing to see clearly from a place of not knowing yourself well, or not honoring who you really are.

Some of us were raised not to pursue our real dreams because they were seen as too unrealistic or unattainable.

Some of us may have lost it through bad experiences, trauma, or unhealthy relationships.

Whatever has happened so far in your life story, it is always up to you to rewrite the next chapter as you want it to be.

The reason that many manifestation techniques do not bring the results you want is often the fact that you are giving off a wishy-washy vibration about what you desire!

Once you know your voice and who you are, you can’t help but be very clear about how you imagine your life to unfold.

The two go hand in hand. The more you develop your authenticity, the more confident you will be.

It is that confidence that gives you the positivity and determination to follow your dreams.

The reason is simple, there is nothing more attractive than authenticity.

Someone who knows who they are and is always true to themselves is like a magnet for manifestations.

These are some exercises and ideas that can help you connect with your deep truth, find your inner voice, and manifest your true calling.

1. Let go of fear

Our fears are what get in the way of our happiness and success.

One of the best exercises I’ve found to do is to sit down with a notepad and pen and get honest about what scares you.

Write a list of what those fears are.

When you are authentic, you are not afraid to show up for who you are.

This exercise aims to get to the bottom of what is preventing you from stepping into your beautiful authentic self and expressing yourself as you wish.

What holds you back from following your dreams? You may feel that you:

  • Not talented enough.
  • Too old or too young.
  • Not enough experience.
  • She has nothing to say.
  • It will be rejected.
  • You will not make any money doing what you dream.
  • It will not be accepted or taken seriously.
  • It will annoy your family or friends.

Once you have made a list of what scares you, take some time to write freely (just write without thinking or judging yourself).

The aim is to write down what you would do differently if you were to start your life over today.

The boy I used to tell you to do? How can you please the child in you?

Write for 5 minutes without stopping to read back over what you wrote until you finish.

Now consider the following statements/questions and complete them.

  • If I had known I would succeed, I would have…
  • If I didn’t care what others thought, I would…
  • I secretly wish that…
  • If I could choose to do anything, it would be…

2. Find out who you are

The next exercise is about getting to know yourself better. You may think you know what you like and don’t like, but you will be surprised!

If you follow the instructions, you will have 100 things at the end of this exercise, and you will feel that you have just had the deepest insight into who you really are!

Write ten things you love about yourself. This can be difficult for some people.

I suggest anything from the color of your eyes to your sense of humor or how you treat your friends.

Write down ten things you are passionate about.

It could be chocolate ice cream, pandas in danger, playing the guitar, or watching the sunset… You want it!

Write ten things you feel confident about.

This can be anything from your knowledge about something specific, your language or baking skills, to your relationships, your ability to run 2km… try to get an imagination.

Write down ten things you would like to learn more about. Anything goes!

Art, politics, the environment, the inside of a car engine, how to make bread, your grandfather’s life as a child.

You will find that you enjoy doing this exercise, it can be challenging, but once you get going you will discover things that you had forgotten to take care of, or maybe you will even be surprised by what comes up during these lists.

3. Listen to the inner voice

The final exercise is to engage in some quiet contemplative meditation.

Meditation is an incredibly effective tool for discovering your authentic self.

In that quiet space of connection, strengthen your sense of self.

You increase your faith in your inner guidance, which fosters confidence in the outside world.

Even a few minutes a day of quiet breathing where you ask yourself, “Who am I?” it can be profoundly effective.

Once you do these exercises and return to them regularly, you will build a secure sense of who you are at all levels, and your confidence will increase.

I recommend writing daily lists of your gifts, what you love, and what you wish for.

You will discover that you are slowly developing a sense of self that you can draw around yourself like a balloon.

It’s a powerful thing to do. It keeps you centered and connected to your authentic essence, and you find it easier to make decisions, identify what you want to do or not do.

It also helps you move forward in all aspects of life.

Manifestations will come to you much more easily from this sense of connection because everything you speak, think, and do will come from that sacred place that is uniquely you.

Have you found your voice within?
