Formerly Cylestea's Tips for Enlightenment -- but, I decided to start using my given name instead of a moniker, since that's what's on my degrees and certifications.

Too many of us are letting other people control us. We let others tell us what to think of ourselves, how we should act, and what we should do with our lives. It's time to take charge of your life ...





It's time to evolve. So how?

Don't be afraid to be yourself

We evolve from babies into adults. We evolve from what we are trained and taught by our parents and school as we become adults and experience life on our own. Some of us stay a mix of the people and experiences in our lives, but if you really want to make a change, learn to be who you want to be.

Who are you? Who do you wish you were? If the answers to these are different, then there's a chance you're afraid to be yourself. But why? What are you hiding from the world? And, what is it doing to your soul keeping who you want to be trapped behind a locked mind?

It's not always easy to be who you want to be, but you should at least try. Don't worry about what other people say or think about you, just do what makes you happy and comfortable (within reason, of course -- If killing makes you happy, please seek help).

I used to dress the way people expected me to or told me to. I would change my look so that they would feel more comfortable around me. However, that made me feel less comfortable in my own skin. Now, I dress how I want to. I study what I want to. I share what I want to. And, those people who don't like me the way I am are no longer in my life.

Try something new

What's something you've thought a lot about doing but never tried? Why haven't you tried it? Now is the time to try new things -- it's those new experiences that help us evolve into who we truly are meant to be.

That something new you try doesn't have to be way off the wall from what you're all about. I like to try new things that align with who I am and what I want to do with my life. I enjoy learning new alternative healing modalities because that is what aligns with who I am and my priorities.

Of course, you should also try things that take you out of your comfort zone, especially if you have something you're passionate about that takes you to that brink. I have always wanted to be a motivational speaker and to teach people about the things that I am knowledgeable about. However, I have stage fright and social anxiety. This year I am kicking my fears to the curb and presenting a couple of topics that I am passionate about. Oh, I'll be nervous, but what I am going to do is stand in front of that group of people feeling confident in myself and my knowledge.

Don't let anything hold you back

Growth cannot happen if we do not push forward. You can dream and envision all you want, but you won't manifest a thing if you don't get out there and make it happen!

Tell those voices in your head to shut up.

The sky's the limit when you put your mind to whatever it is you've been wanting to accomplish. As you put yourself in the path of your future, you will continue to evolve into someone who is in control of their own destiny.
