authenticity / originality / genuineness

having absolute trust in yourself;  being true/real to yourself;  no compromising;
letting go of the things that are false;  being your essence/who you truly are;

< Clarity 10 > A very important point as you go forward in your life. It's about being authentic. It's about being authentic. It's a new word I would love to have Shaumbra feel and begin using. Authentic. What does that mean? What does that mean? It means being absolutely true and honest with yourself, but in a different way. Authentic means having absolute trust in yourself. It means not doing things because of how other people perceive it or your concern about how they perceive it, but because it's important to you. Authentic is about you.

< Clarity 10 > Some of you think here in terms of authentic as not telling lies, being good, doing the right thing, the - what we call on this side of veil - the 'good girl'/'good boy' syndrome. You've been programmed to think in those terms. And where does that really come from? Where does that concept of being a good girl, being a good boy come from? It comes from other people who want to keep you in line, who want to keep you doing what they want you to do. It has nothing to do with being authentic, it has to do control. It was ingrained in you over and over and over again in your early years, and you continue to act that out.

< Clarity 10 > What IS "authentic," Shaumbra? It is just being yourself. Now I know these words are hard for a few of you to hear. Do it for yourself, because you've always been told NOT to do it for yourself. Do it because it is right for you. That is authentic.

< Clarity 10 > Now this sounds very selfish, doesn't it? But Shaumbra you've been led to believe that you always have to do everything for everyone else and then, in the end, you are useless to everyone because you are burned out, you are so confused about who you are. You're the antithesis of authentic. So you really, in the long run, don't do anyone else any good when you are always doing things for them.

< Clarity 10 > You know, the authentic part of you, Shaumbra, is the charming part. It is the charismatic part. You don't have to create that charisma, you don't have to design and develop it. It's the natural part that people are attracted to. When you are authentic with yourself, they are attracted to it.

< Clarity 10 > Yeshua... dear Jesus! Very authentic. Now, it is interesting, you say, "How can a non-souled being be authentic?" Well, it was all of the collective energy behind Yeshua, including you. Shaumbra you and Yeshua are so wonderfully a part of each other - a collective energy behind this dear one - and that's why so many of you have felt such love and compassion for this Being. It was the authentic part of yourself that you put in Yeshua, and therefore he was authentic. He wasn't trying to impress his peers. He wasn't trying to impress the apostles. He certainly wasn't trying to impress the church leaders. He was authentic.

< Clarity 10 > When you are authentic with yourself, when you learn to truly fall in love with yourself, everyone else will be attracted to that. They will see that purity that you have. They will see your essence. Authentic is letting go of the things in your life that are false, that really don't mean anything. And Shaumbra, society in general is under such a hypnotic overlay that they forget about what's really important. They get very unauthentic, very distracted, doing everything to try to - how to say - just get by. Doing everything to just have enough. Doing everything to either please others or to keep others from getting upset with them - and that is not authentic.

< Clarity 10 > Speaking of authentic, it is time to even get away from some of these old terms that you have used in the past relating to your divinity. You call it your Higher Self. You call it your True Self. What about your Authentic Self? What about your Authentic Self? It is truly the greater expanded Being that you are. You've been so focused on this human aspect, you've forgotten. You haven't been authentic with yourself about who you are.

< Clarity 10QA > Most humans do not make choices in their life. They simply go through life. I suppose that in itself is a choice, but not a very enlightened or liberated choice. Most humans don't consciously make choices about what they want to do, or how they want to express themselves in this lifetime. They get caught into their cycles, they get caught into their dramas, and pretty soon they're making no choice at all. They are simply experiencing life but from a very nonauthentic point of view.

< Clarity 10QA > Being authentic means taking a look at your life - your life from the creator standpoint. It means taking a look at the choices that you are making without blaming them on anyone else, without judging yourself, without assigning an attribute of right or wrong. It simply is. With that basis, then you make a choice for yourself, not for others. Don't include any others in this choice making, but only for yourself. And then allow that choice to begin unfolding. Allow it to come into your life. That is being authentic. Choosing for yourself. Being a deliberate and conscious creator without the judgment, without all of the overlays, simply choosing what it is that you want.

< Clarity 10QA > The challenge is doing it in duality, doing it in this everyday world of yours surrounded by people who are still very much into their old issues. Surrounded by the old energy, surrounded by all of the poles and influences and all of the other things that do make it difficult. But that is where you can truly learn as a creator what it is like to return to your essence. Be authentic. If you can do it in the midst of all of this other noise and all of these other overlays, then you have truly done something miraculous.

< Clarity 10QA > You have a social worker attitude. You think that the only way to your own enlightenment is to try to save the rest of the world first. You have tremendous guilt in your life - tremendous guilt about all sorts of things and you think that the only way that you can redeem yourself is to do this work. Now we're not saying there's anything wrong with working with the homeless, as long as you're respecting and have compassion for them.

And you don't. You look at them as poor, indigent beings who are unenlightened and unintelligent and the dregs of society. You have absolutely no compassion for them at all. You should be looking at them through the eyes of God, that they are choosing that and they are living out a brilliant experience in their life. You should be honoring them every day that you walk in there.

So you're stuck. So you're stuck. And you want to get unstuck - go authentic. Take a look at why you are there and what's happening and why you resent the others who are now beginning to open their wings up and soar to new heights, whether it is a business, whether it is a healing modality, or whether it is just damn enjoying life. You're jealous of them.

< Clarity 10QA > Indeed, when the destiny seeds are released, it is like an implant. It is an implant that was put in there by yourself but it changes karma, it changes destiny, it changes the limitations that the future was holding for you. It doesn't directly change anyone else's destiny seeds, for only they can unlock those. However, when they see a human who has let those go and a human who is clear and authentic, it gives them the hope, you would say, or they can see the potential of doing it within themselves. So each time Shaumbra when you do something like this for yourself, it has an effect on everything else.

< Clarity 11 > When we say "authentic" we mean it is without agenda, without trying to build membership, without trying to get them to buy into some belief system.

< Returning 5 > Be authentic. The overlays on Earth right now have it so it's so hard to even remember what authentic is. It means true to you, true to your feelings. So many of the feelings of humans are whitewashed or buried. You're taught how to say things so it's diluted, so nobody gets offended or angry. You play it safe. But that's not authentic.

< Returning 10 > Now, Arthur, of course, lived in a different time and energy than you did, and one of the things that Arthur did that you might be prone to doing also, but not quite as much, Arthur started taking on not only his own responsibility but everyone else's. Everyone else's. He started to carry the weight of his court on his back; and the weight of his people, his subjects, on his back; the weight of his land, and it became too much for him. And it caused him to forget the basic principle of being true to himself, real with himself. So in the end Arthur took his sword, in anger and despair, and threw it back into the lake. He let it go, and he's here to remind you that you don't have to do that.

< Master 4 > So we have the breath and the word. What's the word? Well, the word is expression. The word is expression setting forth. But what about the word? The word. The word is trapped. It's trapped. The word is trapped within you, and we're going to get it out in a few minutes. When I'm talking to you and I say, "What is it you want? What do you want to have happen? What are you choosing?" And I hear this little voice, this tiny little voice. I'm not talking about volume; I'm talking about intensity and passion and desire. What happened to it? And if you can't express it through your voice, who's going to believe you? Not your soul. Your soul doesn't hear you. And I'm not talking about yelling. I'm talking about being real and authentic and letting it out.

< Kharisma 1> Mental has little or no Kaikho, fire, passion. It's not authentic. Every time you think a thought, most of it really isn't yours. Ninety-five percent of it, when you think about something, it's not even yours. But yet you pretend it is. You act like it is. You act out like it is. It's not. So we're going to strip all that and get down to what is yours. Your Kharisma doesn't mean you need to go out and be an extrovert. It doesn't mean you need to go walk down the street shaking everybody's hand, telling jokes in the grocery store. No, you'll look like an idiot if you do that. (some chuckles) Kharisma is a natural attractant. It attracts energy naturally. It attracts people.
