The path to authenticity

Every human is unique. Through neurobiology is known that every individual has a unique set of receptors. A birthchart shows the unique blueprint of a person in an energetical way. Quantum physicists discovered that physical atoms are made up of vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating, each one radiating its own unique energy signature. Finding out what we are, is acknowledging that we are beings of energy and vibration, radiating our own unique energy signature.

From psychological perspective experiences a child in its development a tension between authenticity and attachment. The child is dependent from the parents/caretakers for survival. By being completely him or herself, assuming the own needs, it will experience rejection. A rejection could be fearful als long there is dependency. It can be experienced as very frightful, in the face of the vulnerability of the child. In childhood the balance therefor will go to attachment. The child will adapt more to its environment and specifically to its parents/care takers for its survival. Slowly also, more or less, the connection to self will be lost. Adapting becomes more and more normal. As a child this gives safety. However, when the person gets older, this gives more and more disfunction. Because there is no real contact with the authentic person anymore. The person is adapted and the own authenticity is gone. Something that is also expected by the world in the many societal roles. However, the adult is not a dependent child anymore. It can take care of its own survival. So its about tipping the balance back towards the authentic side. Who am I? What is my uniqueness? How do I manifest this authentically? What is my unique life path?

The path of life is to claim your authentic, true being, which is not culturally given to you. The culture will not explain to you how to be a real human being. It will tell you how to be a good banjer, politician, chief, actor, etc. but it will not give you true being. In all of these roles the grade of succes will be measured by the degree you are adapted to the dictated rules of conduct. The connectio to yourself is gone. Trauma is the loose of connection with self. Authenticity is the connection to self. Without this connection there is no survival in nature. So authenticity is not something spiritual, but a necessity for survival.

A huge symbolic example is for example Jesus. The point of Jesus's life was not to become like him, but to become ourselves in the same way he became himself. Jesus was not the great exception, but the great example. Be you and go your own way. To be in harmony with all that is, it's important not to live strictly according to plans. Life unwinds itself then to you, completely according to your unique energetic blueprint. The tarotcard the Magician shows the vertical integration, the alignment between above and below, the infinity. It shows de power of authenticity, self-assurance, the power of walking your own path, independent, mastery.
