How To Become A Star When You Already Are One

Written by Anthony Meindl

You come from the Heart of a Star. You actually are the heart of a star, but more on that later.

As energetic beings, you are pure positive, magnetic, creative, attraction-based energy. Your birthright is love. Your DNA is joy and intelligence.

Staying aligned with this energy is the currency that moves you in the direction of the things that you desire in the world. And when you have a desire – it is birthed from that same energy that you already are.

Think about it. When you have desires for things – what launches the desires – are feelings of love, excitement, passion, joy, creativity, possibility, wonder.

In short, you.

But you sidetrack yourself and cancel out your intentional desires because you get caught up in the left brain dialogue that makes you feel like crap. It puts you at odds with what you want because it tells you you’re not “good enough” or “pretty enough” or “talented enough” to have it.

So you start identifying with that part and lose the energetic connection to who you truly are.

One way to stay connected is to realize what makes you feel bad about yourself.

And one way you feel bad about yourself is that you use a corporate measuring stick to determine your worth.

We let the corporate mentality machine of our culture determine our happiness factor.
We buy (literally and figuratively) what the media portrays and our self worth and self esteem are created through comparisons.

You are not analytics, algorithms, search engine optimization results.

You are not a statistic, a price point, a demographic, a sale, a number of hits, a rating, a label.

You are not your IMDB ranking, the number of tweet mentions you get, the Facebook friends you acquire, the happy faces or thumbs up you generate.

You can’t let this corporate model of comparing and then determining what’s “hot” or “popular” or “in” squash the spirit of who you are.

The spirit of who you are is Infinite. And now there is the science to prove it. You are made of the same stuff that stars are made.

Billions of year’s ago, before there were planets or the sun, there was just space. Infinite space was filled with subatomic particles which became atoms of hydrogen which, through nuclear fusion, formed stars. Certain stars would blow up, spewing matter from within their core over billions of miles. This matter, through gravitational pull, coalesced and later formed planets – including Earth – and everything on the planets.

Including you.

So you come form the Heart of a Star.

So remember that the next time you start corporatizing yourself.

You are the heart of a star.
