There is something glorious about a person letting themselves out and letting their natural expression flow. In fact, could our true expression be our superpower? It is powerfully inspiring to see true expression in action. What follows here are but a few of the many examples of people bringing themselves to the things they do that have inspired me of late.
Recently I witnessed a classroom of Grade 2 students ignite as their teacher brought all her natural spunk, joy and wisdom to the act of teaching their lesson. The age-old task of teaching became pure poetry in motion when combined with the unique expression that this teacher brought to her work.
I know a guy who spent an hour teaching me how to use my Mac laptop… and what an hour it was. This man is style, delicateness, strength and wisdom rolled into one – oh, and he brings the fun and joy wherever he goes.
I know what you’re thinking – delicateness and strength existing together, really? Yes, in this man they do (and in truth in all men). How could I but learn what he had to share about computer use when he shared all of his gorgeousness first?
Have you watched children as they download their imaginations onto paper with textas and crayons – imbuing the paper with their natural confidence in what they have to share? That is a lesson right there for every adult who has ever felt pressure to perform, to get it right, or do it perfectly within their work.
Would you think that the key to the tastiest, creamiest guacamole was order, stillness and precision? I know a lady who brings these three qualities to her cooking and her guacamole is unmatched. I know a man who captures the true essence of his subject as a photographer and anchors it with his own stillness… and somehow you can feel the sparkle in this man’s eyes coming through his pictures.
I know a guy who brings his innate tenderness and care to the art of teaching swimming… and I’ve seen reputedly ‘tough’ and ‘difficult’ children melt when he shares this with them. I once attended a healthy eating workshop where the presenter was an exquisite mixture of sexy, sassy and one of the ‘realest’ people I’ve met. It was pure delight to learn about eating for your body from someone who so openly celebrated her own body.
I know a woman who is grace in human form. When she walks, talks, waves, sits, stands, you name it, it is like she leaves a trail of pure grace in her wake. And when she smiles… wowzers!! It’s double strength. In truth, all women have this grace even if it is buried deep, deep within. Just by being in the world, this woman is reminding other women that they too have a natural grace, while schooling them in how to live it.
Have you ever wondered what it is to be a powerful woman, in truth? There are many interpretations and conflicting understandings of what it is to be a strong, powerful woman… but I know a woman who answers this question and then some.
From this woman I have learnt that a woman’s true power is in her presence and living her amazingness on the outside – no tongue stud, motorbike, taekwondo black belt or boring black pantsuit in sight; these are just not needed when a woman knows who she is and is prepared to let the world see.
I know two brothers who know joy. These guys could go all day pouring their spunk and wit into their expression. It is in the tone of their voices, the words they speak, the smiles that transform their faces, their utterly spectacular laughs that hit you straight in the heart. It is achingly beautiful to watch these guys in action and when they share this with you along with their innate gorgeousness, you are gone… These guys are kryptonite to the most hardened heart – a true superpower!
I have met a woman who knows love so deeply that when she smiles you see all the grandness of the universe in her eyes.
I know a woman who is sassiness incarnate! Couple this with an endless capacity for fun and a laugh so glorious that hearing it ignites the joy buried in the deepest recesses of your heart… and you’ve got heaven walking on earth: a gift to all who know her.
People bringing themselves to what they do is mesmerising and powerful beyond measure. Just by being you and letting others see, you truly have the power to change the world. When you walk you, people notice… when you speak your truth, people hear.
When you let a person see the real you, you are showing them that it is safe to do the same. The true superpower is not invisibility, the power to fly or anything else that would enhance our physical capabilities in life: way more powerful is letting ourselves out and letting the world see – this is the impetus of true change!
Serge Benhayon is another man who imbues all he does with his true expression. Because this man has been prepared to share his wisdom, spunk, wit, deep care, unshakable knowing of truth, alignment to purpose – and I could go on all day – with the world, thousands of people worldwide have now been inspired to unlock their own true expression.
One workshop, one conversation – heck, one pass of this man in the hallway is enough inspiration to transform lives and see miracles happen… and for many, many people, this is exactly what seeing Serge in his full glory has led to.

Gorgeous appreciation Kathryn of the power we all hold within to light up the world with the love we are within, through simply being who we are and letting our magnificence shine out.
What a beautiful post – I loved re-reading it. “When you let a person see the real you, you are showing them that it is safe to do the same.” Transparency offers us all so much – and the world could then change.
Thank you Kate, your exuberant celebration of everyone comes with a delightful sense of childlike wonder. Life is so rich when everyone shines, the tall poppy syndrome of cutting others down harms everyone. It’s better to be inspired and unleash our own true selves!
This is such a deep appreciation of every single human being. What a way to live. Thank you Kathryn Maroney.
Your depth of appreciation is truly gorgeous Kate. There is so much to appreciate in so many and it is not done enough. The affect that people can have on another when expressing in their truth without holding back, is something worth celebrating for the inspiration alone that it ignites, let alone the miracles it seeds forth from showing people what is possible, is incredible.
I’m always inspired by others who are expressing themselves in full without holding back- it reminds me that it’s okay, it’s safe, to do the same – each person’s experience and expression is so unique, and all are needed because they all reflect something different. Holding back from expressing all that we are takes more energy than it does to let it all out.
When we express our unique qualities in their fullness everyone gets a blessing.
Well said Suse, if a gift that keeps on giving as our reflection becomes like a ripple.
Absolutely Suse, I have seen how powerful this way of expressing is and the healing effect this has on everyone.
Great sharing Kathryn, I particularly picked up on this point ‘Have you ever wondered what it is to be a powerful woman, in truth? There are many interpretations and conflicting understandings of what it is to be a strong, powerful woman…’. We are so often led to believe that strong powerful women are those who have hundreds of friends, are successful in their careers, very beautiful and an equal match to men in the work place. It was not until I met the Benhayon family, that I truly started to understand what it meant to be a powerful woman, one who knows and loves herself, is open and honest, says things as they are, and making life about truth and love.
A number of years ago I wouldn’t have even understood really what ‘True Expression’ was, I thought expression and communication were one and the same. I have come to understand that is not the case and what it really means. It is forever unfolding and carries a responsibility. One I have resisted at times, but also know that each and every day it is a constant checking in and making honouring and loving choices in that expression with self and others.
It is like an infection! We see it, we experience it, we feel it and we are forever changed because there is lightness of being that needs to be lived on this planet. We need to love, truly love again and it starts by remembering we are first and foremost made from that love ourselves.
Love it – yes we all have a superman behind our mild mannered exteriors!
A beautiful appreciation of the innate love and power within us all just waiting to be expressed.
What you share here is so confirming of each our expression, it is a true superpower when we let it be seen.
What you have observed and shared Kathryn is awesome, and I feel the grandness we all possess in allowing our unheld back true expression in every facet of our every day life, with everyone and situation we encounter. It is heaven on earth embodied.
I am finding that it is only when I am expressing all of me in any given moment that I feel true contentment within and when I do it feels like heaven on earth.
There is such love and appreciation in your insights Kathryn. It is awe inspiring to feel the outpouring of love you have for others and what you are feeling in your uniqueness, I particularly felt this, “The true superpower is not invisibility, the power to fly or anything else that would enhance our physical capabilities in life: way more powerful is letting ourselves out and letting the world see – this is the impetus of true change! Thank you for sharing the key to true power.
True super power is being ourselves how inspiring and true if we only knew it. A deeply inspiring reflection and sharing thank you. ‘People bringing themselves to what they do is mesmerising and powerful beyond measure. Just by being you and letting others see, you truly have the power to change the world. When you walk you, people notice… when you speak your truth, people hear.’
Kate, it’s pure joy to read this and feel your celebration of others sharing them with the world. It’s not what you do but it’s that feeling of someone just having fun being them and bringing that to everything – it’s magic and so inspiring you cannot but smile!
I love this blog as what it shows to me is that when we allow ourselves to express that what lives in our inner most, our Soul, we bless the world with a love that is from heaven.
Only our true expression can change the world as the world we live in is an outer reflection of how we all behave and express ourselves. Are you ready to honestly look at this reality and make the choice to give your unique expression the freedom to be there in everything you are?
True expression requires that we value ourselves, the quality we bring, and we know we all on this planet are needed in our full expression. This is the Way of the Livingness.
Great reminder to be and give the full of ME again to day and express in full. What a way to start the day!
What a great recollection of people who are living and showing their “trueness” in full. The magic in each little story is tangible just at their power to transform the world. This is a power we ALL have, so these persons are to be looked upon as a source of inspiration, not with jealousy.
This is such a beautiful blog Kathryn, you make the point that all of us being ourselves, truly, is all we need to do to bring love to everyone. It is inspiring – I especially loved your paragraph on women and grace :”I know a woman who is grace in human form. When she walks, talks, waves, sits, stands, you name it, it is like she leaves a trail of pure grace in her wake. And when she smiles… wowzers!! It’s double strength. In truth, all women have this grace even if it is buried deep, deep within. Just by being in the world, this woman is reminding other women that they too have a natural grace, while schooling them in how to live it.”
Kathryn, beautiful to read, and it reminds me of when I was a child and used to dream of having super powers but in fact I do, to share me in the world. And per the examples you give when you meet someone in their flow, it’s pure poetry in motion and is such a joy to see. And to know that us being us gives others the permission to be them, this is something I feel and often ignore, and do not always claim in the way I can.
Lovely to read, all these people expressing in full. It seems like miracles the way you are describing it, and they are. We indeed have the power to perform miracles by expressing in full and let that magic that is inside us ALL out. Just like Serge Benhayon walked past me, walking and expressing in full his love which made me cry feeling just that, igniting me to feel the same.
yes there is so much presented to us in the world of fantasy and science fiction films that it has almost become embedded in our society and yet within all of us is the divine spark that when rekindled brings a perspective that is far greater than what anything in any film can be.
I’d take being ‘Expression Woman’ over Wonder Woman any day of the week. Our expression contains a power far beyond a magic lasso or fighting prowess! The power of a woman who expresses in full is undeniable – Natalie Benhayon and Simone Benhayon being two cases in point that I know of.
As an observation throughout my growing up in my own life and in the lives of others, the Chinese culture is groomed and in-truth chosen to not express and show ourselves. We are taught from young to hold back what we know to avoid complications and being in the spotlight, we are taught to not speak up so as not to cause issues and conflicts with others, and to not rock the boat. Everything that we know, we should pretend that we don’t. We are cultivated to hide (we call this a myriad of names from being nice to being shy) and that we have falsely called powerful. We think that holding onto something that we know only for ourselves gives us a superiority over others. But is this true power? Hiding in the shadows or expressing who we are not is something we may think gives us protection or security, in fact, it is so ingrained that we do not even know there is another possibility. But have we truly felt safe, as how does a consistent hiding ever reflect permanence in security? I have done all of the above. And all I can say is the only true security I have ever felt was when I started to honestly express myself as if no one’s looking, and in that I am sharing myself with the whole world.
Thank you Kathryn for writing this blog of appreciation and inspiration, living in expression of or inner qualities is what is needed in this world. What you write is inspiring me to feel the incredible beautiful man I am and can bring to this world.
Kathryn, I also love the appreciation you have brought to the observations you share in this blog. It feels like expression and appreciation goes hand in hand – we need to appreciate what we and each of us bring. And I’m appreciating your own beautiful expression!
A beautiful expression Kathryn! So inspirational and joyfully shared! A truly uplifting sharing that I will take much away from!
Celebrating people living themselves is such a joyful thing to do. The joy in your writing just springs off the page Kathryn. There is such joy in the lives of people who live this way. Perhaps it should be considered that living a lesser version of yourself or a version of yourself that you have learned pleases people, is exhausting and sucks the joy out of your life.
As Serge Benhayon has presented “Expression is everything” and this glorious celebration of the people you have witnessed Kathryn brings this principle well and truly to life.
“People bringing themselves to what they do is mesmerising and powerful beyond measure”
So true Kathryn, we totally underestimate this power, which is the ‘secret’ to true success, meaning good income, great relationships, a vital and healthy body and treating each other as equal. And I agree Serge Benhayon is the most amazing role model for this, inspiring thousands to be the same.
Kathryn the joy and simplicity you bring to knowing our super power and how simple this is, is beautiful to read and know. Everything you share is pure gold and I love it all. ‘People bringing themselves to what they do is mesmerising and powerful beyond measure. Just by being you and letting others see, you truly have the power to change the world.’
‘People bringing themselves to what they do is mesmerising and powerful beyond measure. Just by being you and letting others see, you truly have the power to change the world. When you walk you, people notice… when you speak your truth, people hear’. What a gorgeous reminder that all I have to do is express my truth, and be fully present in every step I take.
Wow, I love this Kathryn, thank you for this vibrant piece of celebrating our beauty.
I love this – that we are all Clark Kent with our own superpower. Perhaps that is why this comic has had such profound impact on the world… founded on truth and integrity our natural expression has the ability to change the world!
I know that from experience as when I try to copy someone’s way of being or way of expression I do end up in complication, lack of self worth and a huge dose of seriousness because I was not able to express that what is living in me compared when I live from from my inner heart and life in joy and playfulness.
It’s too easy to complicate life, this blog is a reminder to me of how simple life is when we just celebrate, live and express who we are. Very inspiring to read your true appreciation of everyone around you.
‘In fact, could our true expression be our superpower?’ Absolutely bringing our qualities in expression is our natural way of living, inspiring each other to do the same, enjoying and appreciating the power of simplicity.
Being who we truly are speaks to everyone, not in words but energetically, it says to the world, if I can, you can too, its actually selfish to hold in expression, as it is not just for you but for everyone.
Our true superpower is not our invisibility but rather our transparency, our ability to let others see us for all that we are including of our qualities and strengths as equally as our imperfections.
Our true power comes from us connecting to our bodies and the potential that lays within them and expressing it through our every move as it is this reflection that ignites the same on others.
I agree Francisco, and our reflections are powerful when we live simply and express from our whole body, which then gives silent permission to others to do the same.
‘When you walk you, people notice… when you speak your truth, people hear’. If we allowed ourselves to simply be ourselves and all our moves, actions and words were loving, the world that we have created around us would literally and lovingly transform right before our eyes.
Communicating and expressing from our heart it is definitely our superpower. Great blog Kathryn.
Thank you Kathryn. This is a stunning blog that sparks expression through pure inspiration. You show how easy, possible, beautiful and huge it is to embody and express who we truly are, as we all bring unique qualities that are worth being shared. Yes, expression is everything. Everyone being ourselves have the power of changing the world.
Simply letting the world see who we truly are, as we start to understand who we truly are, and let go of the shields and defences, then this is empowering for everyone, all those around us and ourselves.
I couldn’t agree with you more Kathryn, that true expression is definitely our super power. When we truly take responsibility for what is there to be shared, from our own lived wisdom, then expressing that, it is a blessing for all involved.
“When you let a person see the real you, you are showing them that it is safe to do the same”, then they will be able to show someone else, and so the ripple effect flows on and with it the world slowly and inexorably begins to change. Our “true expression” is not only “our super power” but also our responsibility.
I love what this blog brings – a demonstration that we all have something special that is innately ours and that when we choose to share it widely, not keep it for ourselves and certain earmarked or categorised people, then that can inspire others in ways we’d never imagine, to be more confident and comfortable in revealing their own qualities to the world. Everyone benefits when we express who we truly are. It’s brings a ripple effect with exponential results.
When we see, hear and feel people in their true expression it is glorious. When we are in true expression ourselves it is true freedom. This freedom echoes throughout our whole body freeing our movements and emanating out to inspire others.
‘Have you watched children as they download their imaginations onto paper with textas and crayons – imbuing the paper with their natural confidence in what they have to share? That is a lesson right there for every adult who has ever felt pressure to perform, to get it right, or do it perfectly within their work.’ I have read your blog more than once and felt the joy in your expression. This time this paragraph was really jumping out of the page, it brought back the memory of just starting to work on something, no doubt coming in, just purpose and a natural way of expressing. A true marker to come back to, especially the naturalness of expressing simply me.
There is indeed something glorious about people being themselves and letting their innate wisdom and expression out; it is beautiful to see, appreciate and be inspired by.
Thank you Kathryn for sharing your experiences and wisdom.
Allowing everyone to see who we are in full expression of our soul. That is the true superpower we all hold.
Thank you Kathryn, I loved reading your blog, about all the beautiful qualities you have felt, seen and heard, in those people who are not ashamed to let the real person be seen. “When you let a person see the real you, you are showing them that it is safe to do the same.” The true superpower is not invisibility, the power to fly or anything else that would enhance our physical capabilities in life: way more powerful is letting ourselves out and letting the world see – this is the impetus of true change!
We are forever being bombarded with what and how a woman ‘should’ be but there is nothing more natural and powerful than when a woman is present and with herself and I am forever grateful and inspired by Universal Medicine for offering me another way which continues to develop in my livingness to be and live as the woman I know I truly am.
I used to think that being hard and in protection was a sign of strength and that doing things independently and not asking for help was also a sign that I could manage without the need from anyone and that this was a good thing. I also thought that showing my vulnerability and crying was also a sign of weakness. This way of being I have come to know is far, far from the truth of who I am in that showing my vulnerability and asking for help are indeed natural strengths that I do not have to hide anymore. There is nothing more powerful than when I express how I am feeling openly and honestly in any given moment and this is something that is becoming a normal thing to do in my day.
Thank you Kathryn this blog is beautiful to re-visit and be inspired that true expression really is our superpower. I especially love the way you appreciate and celebrate the people you know for the qualities they bring – a lovely reminder for me to deeply appreciate the amazing people I have in my life too.
Kathryn I really enjoyed reading this piece of writing it is light and full of the light we all in-house within.
Huzzah !! yes indeed.. with the fixation of humanity upon the myth and fantasy of super-heroes, when one walks in our midst it is a different story. Serge Benhayon brings grace and dignity and ageless wisdom to us all, empowering all who choose to simply listen to him, and he is here to reflect that extraordinariness that is within us all
‘When you let a person see the real you, you are showing them that it is safe to do the same”. Thanks Kathrine for an awesome article
Absolutely Joe, revealing our true selves to another, most definitely reflects themselves back to them, how awesome is that?
Thank YOU Kathrine Maroney. I’ve read this blog before but two things really stood out today: YOUR JOY and LOVE for people and YOUR ability to see who people really are. Thank YOU.
Wonderful Kathryn this sentences is a true and pure invitation for me: “When you let a person see the real you, you are showing them that it is safe to do the same.” Thank you so much that you are not holding back your way of expression.
Such a joy to re read your blog Kathryn, I couldn’t resist reading it again. Since first reading your blog some time ago I have been exploring letting my expression out more and more and letting people see the real me and yes, you are right, it is fun and joy-full and people are inspired too to be all of who they are. It’s a win win when we are being all of ourselves in all that we do.
What a great joy it is for me to read about a teacher igniting their young grade 2 students;
What a divine blessing for the students and the teacher; how very inspirational.
“Recently I witnessed a classroom of Grade 2 students ignite as their teacher brought all her natural spunk, joy and wisdom to the act of teaching their lesson. The age-old task of teaching became pure poetry in motion when combined with the unique expression that this teacher brought to her work.”
Thanks Kathryn, i really felt how my expression in my work and everyday living can really expand and i get the sense of how i can deepen this connection with myself and bring it to humanity
Letting our love out, letting the world in, and connecting to the amazingness we are = the recipe for a joy-full way of living and our true expression.
Ingrid I simply love your elegant equation!
Kathryn this sharing is beautiful, inspiring and thought provoking.. To just let go of the way society sees us and know that the real me is much more than that which would be a natural flow on to the way we are in the world. Just being, and free of restriction and doubt. I agree that there are s many wonderful examples in Universal Medicine and especially Serge Benhayon himself.
The feeling I get from expressing from truth is a new re-experience that had gotten lost somewhere in the years.
I have had an enormous expansion in expression- I was totally suppressed from childhood, until I began to understand that registering what I really felt was important, that I was allowed to then say what I felt. I had felt very constrained by being ‘nice’ and doing what was expected for so long that I simply didn’t express my truth. When I was talking about how I felt, I had often gone head first into reaction, and then was speaking from that, rather than from how I felt. There was a lot of rehab to do, so to speak, but finding my voice slowly has been well worth the effort. It empowers me to consider that my feelings are worth expressing, because I deserve to have a voice.
Holding our expression in truth is huge Kathryn as you describe, it makes a change to all around us. It is simple to live in this grace with everything we are and everything we do, simply walking, talking and being. I am learning how when we change, everyone around us has no choice but to change too.
I love this blog Kathryn. Just the title alone expresses the strength and power we all have. And to read how each one of us, when we let oursevles out, ignites the world with love, truth, beauty, joy, stillness.
A beautiful blog Kathryn showing and appreciating how amazingly gorgeous and unique we are when we express ourselves in full, ‘People bringing themselves to what they do is mesmerising and powerful beyond measure. Just by being you and letting others see, you truly have the power to change the world. When you walk you, people notice… when you speak your truth, people hear.’
Men are delicately powerful when we are in our essence. There is such a beautiful contrast between the two qualities, yet they go so well together. Then again, it can get top heavy when we try and over express the strength, thwarting the sweetness of being delicate.
It is so beautiful to feel others in their natural flow of expressing. Its easy and literally just flows and is very pleasing to the ear and certainly keeps your attention. Letting in the complexity of the mind getting in the way with ‘what if’s’ then, up pops complication and for myself in the past I’ve then held back. Your sharing Kathryn highlights so clearly the ‘superpower’ that is within us all, we only have to be ‘all’ of who we are and express from that amazing place.
I love the simplicity of true expression through its natural presence. The master I have met of true expression is Serge Benhayon. I was in his presence packing a large van. It was a big job ordering it with precision and fitting everything exactly where it needed to go with little or no space left over. I was completed when Serge came along and balanced some more books. The quality of presence that emanated through his movement of absolute care and delicate expression was awe-inspiring. The whole universe aligned through his expression. It has not left me and is a marker I feel to live myself. True expression is everything.
Living our truth is definitely a super power as you have shown Rik, through simply observing and feeling how another placed some books inspired you to reconnect to that same feeling you felt in another, it is a contagious superpower we all have the ability to live and share with the world.
Thank you Rik for this beautiful example of being inspired by Serge Benhayon. I love this: ‘The quality of presence that emanated through his movement of absolute care and delicate expression was awe-inspiring.’ Such a great marker of what expression really is about.
I love how you have explained that the computer tutor shared his true unimposing gorgeousness first, so then you could easily take in what he had to say. What a fore runner of the way so many will approach their professional careers and interactions with people in years to come.
This is a great blog Kathryn, it is confirming that with all our different expressions we can change the world, sharing and expressing all that we are is our true superpower.
“One workshop, one conversation – heck, one pass of this man in the hallway is enough inspiration to transform lives and see miracles happen… and for many, many people, this is exactly what seeing Serge in his full glory has led to.” Yes, yes so true. I have been one of these people and witnessed loads of other people transform their lives too from this inspiration of Serge and all the other people referred to in the blog. An amazing fun and appreciative sharing – thank you!
‘a woman’s true power is in her presence and living her amazingness on the outside’ and ‘who knows who she is and is prepared to let the world see’ I love these words – they make it all so simple – no more the hard, trying to fit the image of a powerful woman, but simply being all of who she is.
You raise a great topic here, Kathryn, and during reading your blog the remebrance comes back from school getting marks for my expression. I realize how I often still express with this feeling of unease in my body. How different it is to be able to express like a child before it is narrowed down by school.
It feels like true expression is a powerful medicine that we can all prescribe ourselves each moment of each day. Wow! And that would be medicine for the whole entire world with all those beautiful expressions!
Wow I feel so inspired to claim my true expression after reading this stupendous blog. It is perfect for helping me see that my fullness is not a luxury it’s a necessity for my relationships with others. I am so onto it! Thanks Kate.
“People bringing themselves to what they do is mesmerising and powerful beyond measure”. I agree Kathryn and the great thing about it is that you need nothing to do it with except be yourself.
So true, we simply need to be ourselves, yet so many of us are deeply conditoned away from being ourselves and for being what others need us to be, it’s not exactly easy to switch it back on at first. It does take time for some of us, but the rewards are so worthwhile, for us and for others who cross our path.
Yes it is free and no equipment needed. Looking at it like that it is crazy that everyone does not bring their super power expression to every moment in life- including their work.
It’s crazy when it’s there for us to access and to just be the true us in every moment, by bringing the super power expression.
It is so crazy, as you say Johanna, its free, the world desperately needs us in our fullness and ‘super power expression’, and yet some of us still hold back. It is up to us to allow time and space for this super power to come through.
Absolutely Elizabeth “you need nothing to do it with except be yourself” we can make it (life) so complicated when we just simply have to be all that we are – our amazing selves. The rest just comes so naturally this super power we all have within.
We all have so much to offer when we express from our true selves and not hold back, it’s truly inspirational what we all have to share.
No need for leotards and capes … well maybe on the special occasion but all these super powers in everyday people what a combination, there’s no escaping the super power in you.
Superpower is not only for the chosen few – it’s for all of us to claim. We are the one to choose.
Furniyo when we choose our superpower, it’s a bit like being in a Ferrari, it takes a super strength to not shrink back from such power. I know I have in the past, I didn’t appreciate what I could bring and was afraid I would stand out too much; not a good thing amongst your piers. Now getting use to this new vehicle of expression and connecting with people first, I have learnt how to be in my fullness so it includes ‘the all’.
It’s definitely very powerful!
Kathryn this is a beautiful expression and brings a sense of joy to all of me allowing a freedom and truth to be all I am. What a gift this is in our expression and what the world is badly lacking. It brings a fullness and love to us all as a reflection and inspiration because we al know truth deep in side and can feel it absolutely and is our super power.
A person’s natural expression is seeing their lightness. Living with the connection to their essence is a beautiful thing to witness. It is felt in the way someone walks, talks and smiles. This is super power-full.
Yes Mathew, I agree “A person’s natural expression is seeing their lightness”. Whenever I am serious it is a sure sign I have lost my sparkle and gone into the ‘trying’ with the focus on what I am doing rather than on my being. Life is so much more fun and stress free when I am being silly and playful.
This article also got me considering how ‘normal’ it is to hide who we truly are. I bottled so much expression up in my body, it became bloated and hard, and I became deeply frustrated and self critical, because I wasn’t being who I felt I could be and expressing myself. I am now finding my true voice, walk, sway, grace, joy expression and I feel like I am coming home and that I am truly alive.
What a celebration of expression, I was joyful and inspired by reading these accounts of people being who they truly are. Thank you for sharing.
In fact we are all like Superman, but most of us did get lost in the identification of being (only) Clark Kent and our superpower did become buried. Your blog Kathryn is a beautiful reminder that we all can claim back our power by choice and what a joy & inspiration it is to have people in our life who did it.
Sandra indeed a true superpower that is within us all simply waiting for us to use what is waiting to be used. Nothing to attain simply express. No trying just allowing. The more we do claim in back today the greater not only our lives are, but all lives are; inspired with joy.
You know a lot of gorgeous people Kathryn….or do we all know gorgeous people because we all are?! To appreciate what we bring to the world is embracing our power, instead of giving our power away to doubt, victimhood or judgement. To express this power holds an inner beauty, a shining comes through and warmth all around. Expressing our truth is a real blessing.
Bring on the day when our true expression is not our superpower but simply our natural expression.
Thank you Kathryn. I agree that it is awesome when people are expressing from their true selves and I wonder what holds us back sometimes when we know with a deep knowing how glorious true expression is when it touches us and when we are in our own true expression.
So true Janne, you can really feel it when someone truly expresses, when I truly express. There is just an effortlessness to it, not pushing or trying, it is heaven sent, for whomever you are speaking with or it may be for yourself. Either way, there is a really feeling when it is true expression.
I only can agree Janne and raegankcairney and I like to add something and that is – it feels not so imposing if people are expressing from their true selves and that I love as well.
Yes I agree ladies and I too love when another is expressing from their inner heart how empowering it is to be with them as it supports me to express from my connection to my heart too.
To truly express gives my body a complete different feeling afterwards, I feel more full and alive, there is a joy in letting myself feel the love not only for myself but the love for people. My body can expand instead of shrink and getting tight when I am coming from frustration and manipulating with what I express.
Thank you for sharing this Kathryn. I love the depth of appreciation and inspiration that you see in those around you.
I completely agree “woman’s true power is in her presence and living her amazingness on the outside ” there are no need of anything else, ” a woman knows who she is and is prepared to let the world see.” This is true power just being yourself and letting the world see, we all have it in us to live this way.
This is so true Amita, a women’s true power is in her presence and living who she is. Without the hardness, the protection or needing to put on a front for others. This is our natural way and we all have our unique expression in that.
I love how you have shared all the amazing qualities of the people you have met. It is inspiring how you done this and a great quality in you to be appreciated! Thank you Kathryn 🙂
How gorgeous to bring fun, wit and a laughter to one’s expression! To feel the joy of this! I know I have an innate sense of humour that I am gaining confidence in letting out. Gees, the life of trying to be seen and recognized is so SERIOUS!
No more for this earth angel ;
Good for you Emma, I can just feel the fun, wit and playfulness you emanate.
I’m with you, recognition is way too serious.
