So many of us spend our time seeking our message and our purpose OUT THERE, when, in truth, it’s all IN HERE.
It’s who you are. You can’t be separated from it.
Your meaning can’t be lost and it’s not something that needs to be found.
It’s the feeling people get when you walk in a room. The reason people look forward to being around you when you’re away. It’s your countenance and demeanor – the way you hold yourself and what we’ll all remember of you.
Kindness, peace, calm.
Focus, drive, passion.
Stability, truth, clarity.
The one thing people say you are that always takes you by surprise, because it may be the opposite of how you feel.
– You make them feel calm, yet inside you’re an anxious mess.
– You exude peace, but in your mind, you’re at war against yourself.
– You inspire people with your strength, yet you feel confused, unfocused, and weak.
It’s not surprising you feel weakest in your exact area of strength.
Because your soul knows so deeply who you are and what you stand for – any deviation from it feels colossal.
You ARE your truth. What you embody IS your message.
So when you don’t fully allow it – when you don’t embrace it and claim it as your own – each misaligned moment feels ten times larger and more awful than it is.
You can’t seek outside of you what your already are.
That means the only thing you need to do to feel aligned and on purpose NOW is allow your natural self to come through.
- If you embody peace, practice what helps you feel peaceful.
- If you radiate joy, make time every morning to feel joyful.
- If you inspire through fierce truth, reconnect with your truth and courageously live it – cutting whatever doesn’t align with who you know you are.
Because you have the answers, you’re just not living them.
You’re continuing to hope for a catchy slogan, sign, or no-fail trick that will help you encapsulate everything you are when it ALREADY IS YOU.
So here’s your quick-tip homework:
- Figure out what one or two feelings stand for you.
This isn’t a shame game of coercing yourself into being kinder or more generous. Be honest – what is the powerful emotional you emit? What is your vibrational fingerprint in the world? DO NOT JUDGE THE ANSWER.
- Then live it.
Do anything and everything in your power to feel that feeling yourself. Allow for it, setting aside all thoughts about what you don’t deserve to feel and do, or what makes you productive or valuable.
If you help people feel like everything is okay, spend time in meditation tuning into the perfection of all that is. If you radiate calm, spend time doing whatever makes you calm – walking, cooking, writing.
Because your value IS you. So the more you allow yourself to BE YOU, the more valuable you’ll be and feel.
You can do it. You ARE it.
Be free. Be brave. Be YOU!

I love this idea, Alexis. I know that I radiate something very strongly, because I see it sometimes reflected back to me from others.
But most of the time, it’s like “water to a fish” – I’m so used to it that I find it tricky to perceive it. What’s the easiest way for me to identify what powerful emotions I emit?
Awesome question Nikki! There are a couple ways to go about it.
The most effective is to check in with your ideal vision. If the world looked and felt exactly how you know it could in your soul – what key feelings are at the root of how people feel themselves, each other, and the world? The feelings that are so important, without them, the rest of the vision wouldn’t be possible.
For example, my ideal world is marked by inner and outer peace. Underlying that peace are feelings of being enough, whole, safe, and complete. Since these emotions are so important to me (and also ones I struggle with), they are inherently tied up in the experience I’m having in this lifetime. So I suspect they’re the ones I embody.
I can then validate that through interactions and feedback from others. Over the years, many of us have had people say how we make them feel – the answer may or may not surprise you based on how aligned you felt with your purpose at the time. For me, I frequently am told people feel calmer and more clear and peaceful around me – again, clues that I’m embodying those energies, EVEN IF I feel anxious and scattered in my own head.
I also recommend sending out a survey to friends and loved ones asking them to (anonymously) name 3 of your main qualities. Although external input isn’t as valuable as getting in touch with your own vision, it’s still a lot of fun and an interesting to see what others see in you. <3
