Being enough

You are enough AS IS. What am I talking about? Do I even know what I’m talking about in the first place? And if I do indeed know what I’m talking about, how can I prove it? Is there a type of document, physical proof, or tangible evidence I could offer up that would allow you to suspend the disbelief you may carry within regarding the extent of your individual personal power? Sorry friend, but there is no such proof. As for the rest of it, I’ll try to explain to the extent that words will allow me.

One of the reasons I was drawn to work in a field such as fitness training and coaching is because I am hired to utilize an area that I am empathically gifted in: focusing on and encouraging the potential that is within you. When I use the word potential, I don’t mean it in the sense that you could become something special if you’d just work at it. I mean it to say that you already are something special, and this something special is merely awaiting your recognition of its existence. It’s already there and always has been. You just haven’t been certain of it. But I am, because after making a connection with you, I will see it. I am given a sense of it in different manners and degrees with each person, since no two of us are the same, but there is much more within each of us than can generally be comprehended through our human logic. In fact, it’s that very logic that generally blocks us. That need for the kind of “proof” that I can’t give you. Regardless of this lack of proof, I can tell you with certainty that you are enough because in your presence I am gifted with the knowing that comes from sensing your potential and light and in sensing your potential and light I am gifted with an awareness of my own potential and light. This is not an awareness I would have of myself otherwise. It is through the energy of your being that I receive my proof. We are each enough. As is.

Awakening to the realization that you are enough does not magically transform you into an individual who never doubts their abilities or falls short of their goals. You are a human being. You are not now, nor will you ever be, nor are you meant to be, perfect. Nobody. Ever. But you are enough. And even if I did have solid proof of that, attempting to convince you of that message, or any message before you were meant to receive it would be an effort in futility on my part. And yes, it took me a good portion of my “why can’t you just get what I’m saying here” know-it-all life to get that. But I’m beginning to. And I’ve made peace with the fact that I will never know it all. In fact, what learning has taught me most significantly is that truly I know nothing. And the messages and beliefs that have been laid on my heart are not intended to be forced on anybody else. I’m merely here to plant a seed. Which seeds you water are up to you.
