Clever Pretending

Clever Pretending

means brilliant at make-believe * skilled at deceiving yourself and others that everything is just fine * and so masterful at distorting the truth about your dreams that you’re not sure what they are anymore. On a deeper level clever pretending is being dishonest and disloyal to your Self *

To pretend means to lie and to pretend in a clever way means you do it so cunningly that you make the lie appear true even to you. These devious lies show up mostly in the form of excuses humans tell themselves every single day followed by explanations and justifications about why they aren’t being doing having what their heart desires.

Clever Pretending is the #2 Thing that Prevents Humans from Living Alive!

Here are the telltale signs:

* You rationalize anything to make yourself feel better
* You make excuses for why you don’t do what you love
* You don’t think about your Passion anymore
* You act like the lies are the truth
* You convince yourself that someday… (fill in the blank)

Have you ever heard someone say ‘you’re just dreaming’ OR ‘she’s just a dreamer’ like it’s a bad thing? Humans have been conditioned to believe that they can’t be who they desire to be so they make up stories to feel better. Have you ever convinced yourself so completely that you wanted something that you really didn’t want that after awhile you forgot not only that you didn’t really want what you convinced yourself you wanted you also forgot what it is you truly desire? And/or you have created a very convincing story that proves why you ‘think’ you can’t be do have what you LOVE. That is clever pretending and we are so clever that what begins as a game of pretend becomes very real that it’s challenging to see and feel the Truth.

So what is the remedy? Now some of you may not like what I’m going to say yet I wish someone would have been bold enough to tell me years ago to…

❤ Snap Out Of It! Who do you think you’re kidding? You may have fooled everyone around you yet you can’t fool your Self. Yes, you can ignore your Self; you just can’t fool your Self and I’m talking about your TRUE Self 😉

❤ Treat your Self like your very best friend! Give your Self unconditional LOVE * conscious attention and Listen to your Self with an open Heart. Take the time to remember who you are & know what it is you truly desire*

❤ Promise your Self right now that you will no longer lie to your Self * you are done with excuses and you choose to Live Your Passion no matter what!

❤ Live by your Truth being in your JOY

And to assist you further, here are some declarations:

*TODAY I choose to Connect with my True Self & Listen to my Inner Voice
*It is safe for me to be Honest. I LOVE & Value Who I AM
*I am Worth the Time & Energy necessary to Nurture My Gifts
*I take Inspired Action in the Direction of My Dreams
*I Live Every Moment of My Life with PASSION & Purpose


Stay tuned for MORE Live Alive FOR YOU 🙂

  1. Dearest Amy,

    I feel, when we are pretending to be someone we’re not… We are rejecting ourselves… Telling ourselves that we’re not good enough to be “Who We Are Truly Meant To Be…”

    Amy, I am choosing to say “YES” to My Soul Journey…

    “Living Every Moment of My Life with PASSION & Purpose from LOVE!!!” ❤

    Amy, Thank You for allowing me to share my HEART… ❤

    From my Heart to Yours,

    Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ~Love & Light~Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ
