The Power of Living Your Wild Truth

The most courageous thing we can do is be ourselves.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own.

I ran off autopilot for a long time. Living and working towards society’s definition of “success” or what Silicon Valley had deemed as “making it”. That path ultimately drove me to a burnout. Yes over the years I took wild adventures to literally the TOP OF THE WORLD, Mt. Everest, and other peaks globally, but ultimately I was coming back to a fraction of myself in the day to day. Was it possible to carry the wildness and truth I felt in myself in these wild places and environments on a daily basis? It was in there, inside, so there must be a way.

The question was, “What would happen if I stepped into my Wild Truth?” What would happen if you did? It was an elusive question for many years, even a bit scary. In my heart and spirit there it lived, the wildness innate in me, yet my mind could easily convince me that only parts of it could be revealed to the outside world be able to “fit in” and “make it.” So many of us are living a fraction of our lives, of our potential, hiding our truth that in many cases, society, old conditioning, old belief systems, beliefs that are not even ours to begin with keep us dialed back from living fully.

The thing is not only we miss out on living our best lives, so does the world around us, as when we thrive so does everything around us. Our truth speaks to us on a daily basis, but it’s up to us if we listen to it or let it get muffled by a list of “should’s,” “could’s,” and “can’ts.”

When we step into our truth we are free. It’s a process, and most of the times not an easy one. We have to die, and let a lot of things we thought “should be” go in order to be born into all that we already are. The reality is that nothing outside of us holds our truth. It’s already there within.

Truth is a choice. We have to give ourselves permission to step into our wild unapologetic truth. When we do, it shines through us and onto the world. The world needs more truth seekers shining their light, especially now when our planet is at stake.

Experiencing our ultimate truth and total liberation is a life journey. After all, the most courageous thing we can do is be ourselves.

Joy, peace, and freedom comes from within when we can live from our Wild Truth. From this space that is free of the burden of past conditioning, beliefs, and experiences we can step into the present moment and into the power and limitless potential that exists in each and everyone of us.

It’s a joy in my work as a coach/guide and speaker to help others step into their truth. Here to support this community of truth seekers.
