As I continue on my journey as social media butterfly, I often meet folks and get the question "So, what is NeoSoul Alter Ego all about?" What I can tell you is that I BELIEVE that each of us has a NeoSoul Alter Ego. But let me tell you a little bit about how I become "aware" of mine.....
In general I am a reflective person, I take in what I experience in life and allow my mind to flow freely to inter-lace with my imagination, emotions, and logic. Yet there came a time when I wasn't satisfied solely with the reflective process. I was able to visualize the life I wanted, but wasn't CREATING it! I was performing to the roles, positions and/or siuations that my life required....instead of experiencing life through MY WHOLE SELF.
Somehow on my life journey, I had allowed myself to have an ON/OFF button for my public self and my FREE SELF (aka NeoSoul Alter Ego). It was like I was juggling the personalities of Murphy Brown (workaholic), Jill Scott (expressive spirit), and Joan Clayton (status quo lonely sista girl)! And I just could not live that way anymore.......My spirit was unsettled, and it was causing me physical pain, emotional numbness, and a overwhelming anxiety of the possible manifestation of my worst fear....A LIFE OF MEDIOCRITY!
I committed to myself that I would live the life I visualized (had even put it on a vision board!) and that I would no longer marginalize the true essence of myself in any area of my life. All of those personalities (and more) were a part of me, some good & bad...yet together they made me eccentric and unique! And I LOVE that! Whereas jumping in and out of the personalities "as my schedule permitted" was just like a person dancing totally off beat to the rhythm of my life.
So initially, my blog was a creative expression to share my experiences as I learned to allow my NeoSoul Alter Ego to emerge. Then as I began to share and meet with folks I found that there were others who also found their lives to be in some sort of a paralysis state, and wanted to engage and change.....and so my NeoSoul Alter Ego became an interactive experience called The NeoSoul Lifestyle! As a part of this lifestyle experiment, I invite folks to participate in things such as:
-Monthly Lifestyle Experiments
-1st Time Challenges
-Quick Change Pick-Me-Ups
As an evolving community,The NeoSoul Lifestyle empowers folks to individually and/or collectively:
-Seek soulful reflections
-Create a plan of change
-Enjoy the process of becoming
-Share the experiences
So are you thinking....."Is she some sort of new-age guru?" I hope not, because that isn't me at all. I am simply a person that wants to live life in a new and more fulfilling way.
So there it is.....a little insight into the NeoSoul Alter Ego!
