We’ve got to fall for some lies to get to our truth.
The Lie of Inadequacy. It goes like this… “You were born defective, not good enough, flawed.” Nooo! Erase erase. Blow it UP. And while you’re at it, bury the concept of original sin.
This big lie could translate to, “You were born a girl… you incarnated into the wrong caste… or the wrong neighbourhood… or you love someone who you apparently should not love.” (Who shouldn’t be loved?)
The Lie of Inadequacy is pervasive. It’s how advertisers make their money, it’s the patriarchal framework, it’s religious doctrine gone very wrong. We can inherit the lie—like a genetic story of “unworthiness” that gets baked into our DNA.
What’s it like to go through life thinking you’re not quite enough—defective, flawed? Well… most of us know exactly what it’s like. And what happens when we buy the lie? We can become chronic self-fixers, habitual strivers, always trying to get on the right side of Universal law. Investing in inadequacy is exhausting.
Feeling weird in a world that rewards “normal”? Too woo woo in commercial culture? Are you doing all the good, meta, motivational work but feel like there’s a veil between you and what you really want to manifest, and if you get it, you don’t get to keep it? Erase it.
That’s all the subtly toxic Lie of Inadequacy telling you that you’re standing here and what you want is way over there, on the “right” side of it all.
Listen: You were born Beloved. You’re a blessing of original goodness. And you have a lot of creative power.
Divine Love and fulfillment are your birthright… just because you showed up here—in your glory and with all your questions, cravings, and natural beauty.
Take “proving” off the docket and watch your mental burdens melt. You are more than adequate; you’re a spiritual being in human form—SUBSTANTIAL.
And that’s the Divine Truth that dissolves all lies.
P.S. There’s an AUDIO version of this! Play it + soak your heart in Divine Truth while you live your substantially human life. Learning Discerning—my latest album. Listen to her HERE.
