Have these words ever crossed your mind? Or better yet…taken root there?
Today, it’s my honour to introduce you to the amazing Susan Loraine Barker, the magical gal who kicks your thoughts of un-worthiness to the curb in her awe-inspiring contribution to the book, Pearls of Wisdom: Thirty Inspirational Ideas to Live Your Best Life Now!
Susan’s chapter, titled You are Already Enough, is based on the philosophy that we are worthy and enough simply because we are alive and that nothing we do or do not do in this life changes that. It is time for ‘not good enough’ thoughts to be replaced by positive motivations because you are ‘already good enough!’ It is unconditional love, so get ready to treat yourself well and follow your heartaftre reading Susan’s sparkling pep-talk!
Curious to find out more about Susan’s approach and her writing journey in Pearls of Wisdom, I asked:
What kind of wisdom do you have to offer the reader?
I have my experience and what has worked for me and my clients. I also have lots of hard won love and acceptance to share. I believe we all have the belief that we are not enough or worthy somewhere in our psyche. How can we not? We grow up experiencing that we need to look a certain way, act a certain way and accomplish certain things in order to be accepted and loved. Therefore, we cannot just be enough! I believe it is our sacred contract to overcome our family and cultural training and realize that we are who we are supposed to be and that is enough. From that place of enough, we can thrive and shine.
What is your most central and compelling “pearl of wisdom”?
You have everything you need within to be your greatest self because…you know what’s coming…you are already enough.
At this time I think it is that You are Already Enough. Whether I am talking about loving the body you have today or pointing out the story you are telling that is holding you back, it always comes back to you being perfectly, authentically and gloriously you. I believe that is the key to happiness, liberation from the tyranny of our inner and outer critics, and to unconditional love. The unconditional part creates miracles, changes lives and saves the world.
What do you think makes this book unique and who would want to read it?
I love that this book offers 30 ideas, 30 choices and 30 voices. Certain voices and styles of connecting resonate with us at different times in our lives. I believe the benevolent universe is always working on our behalf and is always offering what we need to know next. 30 voices means that there are 30 more chances that you will get the message you need right now from this book.
