Permission to be different!

By Ivan Nikolov

A reminder about how enrolled we are in the fear of rejection, the fear of not being accepted…

I just had a coaching call with an amazing individual.

She shared something that really threw me deep into a passionate output, driven by my passion and life work – liberation of the spirit of others so they can bring their message and gifts out into the world.

She said, “If I am different then they’ll judge me for being different, for not being like them.”

I said, here’s EXACTLY why you WANT TO BE DIFFERENT!

  1. Being “different” is not being different. It’s actually choosing to be YOUR TRUE SELF. It’s choosing NOT to be the same, choosing not to blend in, it’s choosing to not be controlled by fear (of rejection)
  2. When you are “different” you are serving as a powerful reminder to them of who they can be, which they’ve merely forgotten (they knew that perfectly well when they were a little child).
  3. When you are “different” you practically remind them of a choice they have – to be different or to stay the same. They’ve forgotten that they have a choice.
  4. The last thing you want anyway is to be the same like them, to blend in… to be one of the almost 8 billion in the matrix who are doing all they can in order to NOT be different.
  5. Being “different” is incredibly inspiring for others – quite contrary to what most people feel (that it’s dangerous).
  6. Being “different” is incredibly liberating for the one who gives herself permission to be different, to be unapologetically herself. Once tasted, you can never go back in the matrix!
  7. Being “different” is truly liberating for the soul. Imagine a free by default soul, trapped in the cufflinks of a conditioned mind.

This is not an exhaustive list by any means but it’s a good a reminder, I believe.

Anyways, she left the call feeling completely differently (feeling “different” and perhaps being “different”).

On my side, I got to witness this once again –

People are simply waiting and desperately (though unconsciously) ready for someone to hold a mirror in front of them for long enough until they can see their true nature.

And, maybe to encourage them just enough so that they can

Begin remembering again.
