Say What You Need to Say: Saying What You Feel

Everyone who knows me knows I'm a pretty big advocate for expressing what you feel. One thing I've learned on my own path is that learning to have and express our emotions is key to finding out not only who we are, but also to our healing and authenticity process.

Like the John Mayer song "Say what you need to say," I know how freeing it is to the heart to let all of our feelings have their say. After all, it could be that there is a hurting or an empowered new part of yourself that needs some authentic love and attention.

Unlike this funny cartoon, I am not advocating that we go around saying "FU" everytime we feel like it. That could be real mess. On the other hand, there might be times along our journey where for our healing and empowerment, that is exactly what we need to do! As always, use your discretion. (If you need to express something, do so in appropriate ways/places.) But always be True to Your Self.

Here is a little article today from DailyOm on using our outside voice to free our Inner Desire.


Freeing Our Inner Desires: Using Our Outside Voice
by Daily Om

Each of us has developed an internal filtering process that helps us choose which parts of our constant inner monologues get voiced outside of our heads. Sometimes the choice is based on what we consider to be polite or appropriate, using subtlety instead of directness to try to get our point across. Other times the choice is made based on our expectations of the other person and what we feel they should know about us, our feelings, and our needs. But our best chance of getting what we need is to communicate specifically by converting our inner voice to our outside voice.

This may seem unnecessary sometimes, especially when we think the other person has the same information we ourselves are working with, but we have to remember they also have their own inner voice, evaluating what they hear in light of their own issues and needs. With so much to consider and sift through, we are truly better off if we communicate precisely. Not only does doing this minimize the chance for misinterpretation, but voicing our thoughts it is an act of creation. We convert thought and imagination to sound, releasing it from the chamber of our minds into the outside world. This carries energy and intention with it, making our thoughts, wishes, and even dreams come true.

When we have the courage to speak our minds and use our voice to send the desires of our hearts from our inner world to the world outside, we take a bold step in making them happen. By removing fear of what others may think and expectation of what others should understand, we free ourselves and our thoughts from the bondage of the mental chamber and let loose our desires onto the canvas of the world. Next time we become aware that we have a choice about how to communicate, we can choose to use our outside voice and watch its creative power at work.
