Why You Need To Always Be True To Yourself by John Cali and Spirit

Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself. ~ Richard Bach


As we all know, being true to ourselves can be a daunting challenge in our modern world. There are so many forces and influences trying to persuade us to rely on them instead of our own inner resources and knowing. And yet the only reliable resources and true knowing come only from within each of us.

As my spirit guides often say, our inner guidance is always our highest and best authority.

The channelling we did, below, was not at all what I expected when we came up with that title above. I can never predict what my guides are going to say. Maybe that’s a good thing.


You are all moving into a new, higher dimension while still in your physical bodies. This is also true of your animals, wild and domestic.

The old ways of the world, you’ve probably noticed, no longer work well. The reason is you are all vibrating at a much higher rate than the old energy could ever hope to achieve.

In short, old energy — old ways — old thoughts — simply do not work for you. It’s time to turn inward and stop looking outward for answers.

While it might seem paradoxical and puzzling, looking inward — being true to yourself, trusting your inner guidance, your higher wisdom — will help you deal far more powerfully and effectively with the world “out there.”

In truth, there is no world out there. There is only the world you project out there from within here. As you are fond of saying, you create your own reality.

That is literally true. You create the world you see and experience. If you don’t like what you see, accept responsibility for it. Then move on and exercise your divine right and power to create what you do want to see and experience.

You have that much power. Use it. Be true always to yourself.

    Thank you John/Spirit! You are so right. For so many years I would hear and would even say to other people – that it starts with yourself-til I finally went inside and found-it really does! Ha! ha! It doesn’t come from outside of you. So glad I found your site! Thanks again, John and happiness to you!

    Even the animals? How interesting! I have 3 pets, and they all seem to be much more into eye contact recently. I was wondering about that.

    There does seem to be more awareness now that other people are “our version” of them, and that *we* are “their version” of us. The fun thing about that is that we can step out of “their version” and create new versions of ourselves. How intriguing!

    love and hugs

      Thanks very much, Jeannie. As you say, all works out if you start from being true to yourself.

      Love & hugs,
