What We May Be Hiding May Just Be What Makes Us A Star!

FullSizeRender.jpg-8

After coaching on set a few days ago I was RE-minded, yet again, that true star quality comes from the actor’s ability to reveal truth, mask-free, without apologies.

To show the world our individual light without trying to fit into a blueprint of what is “expected”.

Casting directors, directors, and producers are exhausted of seeing the same old performance and quite frankly become disheartened by the dime a dozen approach to the work.

Despite what many may think, the industry is not looking for a carbon copy of the next big star.

It is hungry for someone different that pushes boundaries, captivates the masses, and radiates individuality.

They are looking for that brave soul who shows up fully as they are and thus is able bring themselves to any given project.

It is crucial for us to arrive in our work with all our chaos, messiness, imperfections, and grit without limiting ourself to ideas of what we think is right or correct.

Hiding all of these amazing colors of ourself is in vain as every role we will ever play will be rooted in our given character doing what they can to improve their own life circumstances.

If this is what is required of the role, then it goes without saying, it is demanded of us.

We are the vehicle to bring that written character to life through the accumulation of our own life experiences because we and our imagination are all we have. Our truth is crucial to this business and our brand.

When we truly commit to this way of working, we will begin to experience more freedom, excitement, stimulation, and opportunity.

That’s true stardom!

The Forgotten Miracle Within

FullSizeRender.jpg-5

We all have a miracle within us that innately knows what to do.

Think about it.

We possess an inexplicable force that takes us moment to moment without monitoring our internal biological circumstances.

Our heart beats on its own.

We inhale oxygen without having to tell our body to do so.

Our blood circulates.

We turn food into energy.

Our cells reproduce without an instructional manual.

This force allows us to just BE.

We trust it and as long as it is in balance, we let it flow without a critical eye.

However, we have been conditioned to not trust this force nor our own instincts.

We begin to seek an “idea” of what we think this moment, here and now, should be.

We overlook the most reliable place to access our most concrete truth.

This way of being simply negates our very own divinity.

As a result, we begin to watch, listen, and monitor our every move causing a complete paralysis of the creative and healing energy needed moment to moment.

Everything we need comes from within and therefore is effortlessly attracted and manifested.

Our being is an inexplicably intelligent organism whose one and only objective is to sustain its peace, balance, harmony, and aliveness in the NOW moment.

This is what every human’s primary need is everyday.

This is the journey of every character we will ever reveal.

When we begin to experience specific blocks in our life and work, we receive messages, whether they be physical manifestations in the body, or even a slight voice that is whispering to us to pay attention to a specific need.

The closest and most intimate relationship we will ever experience is with ourself and our innate Spirit.

This is a relationship that we MUST learn to turn to for what serves our best and highest needs.

This relationship with ourself is one that MUST be a relationship of limitless trust.

Go within and seek the answers that we may be exhaustingly searching outwardly.

Go within and listen to that soft subtle voice that tells us what we truly know but may be ignoring.

Pay attention to the physical sensations in our body that our Spirit is sending to awaken us to pay more attention.

When we begin to tap into this crucial trust in ourself, only then can we experience what it feels like to live freely in your work.

Ask the questions and listen for the answers! They are there! Be patient! Trust!

Be aware! Become conscious! Awaken!
