Thanks for tuning in to Heartrepreneur® radio. I have a special guest named Valerie Herald. She helps people who feel like that don’t fit in and are craving to be their fun, authentic self. I am excited about this because I felt like I used to live that way. Not being authentic. Her process is the only guaranteed way to live life on your own terms. I have the expert here. She not only has a process, she guarantees the process. She has been there and done that and she develops a message using energy and soul coaching. She focuses on teaching you actionable steps and demonstrates how you can apply those to your life now. That is what we want here. No matter what they say, what you see or what you hear, its times to be you. Crazy, fun, authentic, and YOU. I love all of that. Thank you and welcome to the show. Valerie: Thank you for having me. Terri: What is your story and what was going on for you? How did you make the shift for yourself? Valerie: It’s been gradual over the years. The most reason was I had an injury about 6 and half years ago. I started seeing a pattern in my life with these moments that you come down to your darkest days. You think, what am I gonna do? How am I going to get out of this? The message I received was the answer was within. I realized I have been looking outside of myself to others to tell me how to live. That wasn’t working. I hit on the head told me it wasn’t working. Then I started to find a new way. I found myself and claim myself and started to live for me instead of other people. Terri: Wow that is awesome. What do you think this is? Why so many of us are not being authentic? I remember feeling like I really wanted to be authentic and I just felt like I couldn’t. What’s going on? Valerie: Different things, it might be a trauma or abuse we had. We get put into a victim situation where we were powerless. We expected other people to be that power for us. We tend to live our lives based on the past. What happened in the past is dictating how we live now. Most of the time, we are reacting to life instead of creating it. It takes away our living now and being ourselves now. Another thing is that growing up in society we have had people telling us all of our lives that you need to do this and you need to be that. We internally take on those messages and we feel like we have to be that. It’s about returning that power back to ourselves. We realize that what was told to us, is not the way it really is. It comes back to that higher self within us and starting to listen to that. The noise of the world can be so loud. It’s coming back to hearing that tiny voice. Until we get it stronger with in us. Terri: Can you give us a tip or two that can make us stronger and allow us to be more authentic? Valerie: Sure, I always say that we get signs all of the time whether we are being aligned with who we are or not. Usually things pop onto your radar and when it shows up you think, it’s just not quite right. Make one small change to create something different. We have patterns and we are responding to situation the same time every time it shows up. When the situation presents itself, just choose something different. Instead of arguing back, you choose not to respond. Or find a way to laugh at a situation instead of getting super upset and crying about it. Just being playful with it and trying to find that different path. Terri: I like that. Is there a way that we can tell am I truly being authentic? Is there a way someone can know that and sense it? Valerie: Yeah, physically it’s the quickest way to know if you are not aligned. It will show up in the gut. You will feel like it’s a battle going on in there.
