55 Living From The Inside Out

Living From the Inside from William Sinclair The Real Truth About You Podcast

I say it a lot because I really mean it.

It wasn’t until I started the journey into the depths of me that many of the things I’d been told, especially by motivational speakers, actually took root and began to bear fruit and develop meaning in my life.

Until I began living from the inside out, what I saw, heard and read went in bright and shiny but came out muddy and confusing.

Although everything that goes in has some form of impact, it didn’t produce a garden because I was planting the seeds in “clay”.

Jesus the Christ talked about this when he said that it’s not what goes into a person that makes a difference but instead what comes out that shows the person’s heart.

Get ready to prepare yourself as fertile ground and learn how to live from the inside out. The fruits will be amazing.

54 We Need To Experience That Deep and Intimate Trust

Experience Trust from William Sinclair The Real Truth About You Podcast

Being vulnerable is not a sign of weakness but of inner strength that can lead to intimacy.

On my journey of inner transformation I have discovered the need to ‘open up’ and be vulnerable to another person. In turn, the other person needs to create an environment of safety in order to allow that openness to happen. This is when healing can happen in the deepest way.

This is the case with Edrina and me. She can open up to me and become vulnerable because I create the trust and safety she needs in order to tell me and show me her inner most self. And she creates the trust and safety that I need in order to tell her when I am hurting on the inside.

This ‘poverty of being’, when we seem to be at our lowest but able to share with someone else, can create a deep sense of intimacy.

When we can experience that deep and intimate trust in another human being, it is easier to become intimate and trusting with God, the healer of all hurts.

This intimacy, this trust, this vulnerability is born of love and it is love that binds our wounds, strengthens us and eventually brings us into wholeness.

God is love.

53 How A Cat Showed Me God

How a Cat Showed me God from William Sinclair The Real Truth About You Podcast

(Photo Credit: My 8 year old, at the time, granddaughter!!)

I didn’t love myself for the first fifty-seven years of my life. I thought I did. But I didn’t. Oh yeah, I’m fifty-seven and a half years old as I write this.

Because I didn’t love myself, I also couldn’t feel the love that others had for me. I could love them but I couldn’t ‘feel’ their love for me.

I projected this onto God. God was “enough” for me but when my spiritual director, Barb Wright, asked if I felt that I was ‘enough’ for God, I couldn’t answer.

The cat that strolled into my life a month ago revealed something to me.

Also in this episode: How I had limited my view of God. Maybe you’re doing this too?

52 How I Release Stress and Anxiety by Living the I AM Experience

Live the I AM experience from William Sinclair The Real Truth About You Podcast

One day, Moses asked God what God’s name was. God said, “I Am”.

God never said “I Was” or “I Will be”.

When I lived in the past, which doesn’t actually exist, I lived a life of stress because I kept reliving in the story of abuse. It kept me pinned down. It manifested itself through me as lack of confidence, fear, anger, guilt, loneliness, isolation, self-sabotaging. Even though, on the surface, I was a go-getter, a doer, a people helper, a fun person, living in my abused childhood past absolutely kept me pinned down. I was living the “I Was” experience.

As I lived in the future, which also doesn’t exist, I was seen as a positive visionary always seeing great things for myself and others. In my mind I was successful, on top of the world. However, I came into the awareness that the main reason I kept looking into the future was because I hated who I was in the present. I kept projecting a better future version of me. I was living the “I Will Be” experience.

Both of these kept me pinned down in a life of stress, fear and anxiety.

I have come to know that all you ever have is the present moment. When I learned to accept and live in this present moment I discovered the key that unlocked the inner peace, inner joy, and inner strength that already dwells in me, untapped.

In discovering the present moment I also discovered God as I had never discovered God before. My life has never been the same.

Don’t live in the past ‘I Was’. Don’t live in the future ‘I Will Be.”

Live and be in the present moment “I Am.”

51 Inner Peace Is Calm Amid The Storm

Inner Peace from William Sinclair The Real Truth About You Podcast

The biggest storms in life are not always those that rage around us but those that are going on inside of us. The sad thing is that we don’t realize they’re there. We just see the surface eruptions like sadness, anger, unsettled, unconfident.

These eruptions may even be cleverly disguised as being a fun person, being driven to good things for others, humility, feeling driven to succeed and a host of other seemingly positive attributes. All good things but the motivation behind them may be skewed.

Usually, once a week, I have to clean our retreat centre. When I’m feeling lazy I look at the carpet and think it looks okay. Then I begin to vacuum. That’s when I begin to notice the dirt that’s actually on the carpet and realize that it did, in fact, need to be cleaned. I had to get up close and begin the process in order to notice it. Standing off at a distance didn’t show me anything.

When you take the time to bring your life into the quiet, that’s when you notice, when you become aware of, the issues in your life that need healing.

Thankfully, we don’t need to be the ones doing the ‘vacuuming’. God does that. We just need to bring our lives into the quiet, into the present moment and allow the healing to happen. Does it hurt emotionally? Sometimes. But, I love walking barefoot on a beautiful, soft and fully clean carpet.
