Most people, at midlife, begin their quest to find out who they are and why they are here.
Do you wonder what your life is all about?
In fact I spent decades studying, asking questions, reading, taking courses - heck, I became an ordained metaphysical minister to deepen my search - you know, the one within.
It was pretty obvious I could never find me by looking outside of me. Nothing and no-one outside of me creates my life.
Same holds true for you.
Huh? Your outer world reflects your inner world and not the other way round. If that causes you to roll your eyes watch this video and then continue to the end of this post.
I highly recommend exploring these books to speed your journey to the True You. Click on each image to go directly to Amazon and grab your copy in hardcover, paperback or the Audible version. Personally I get both the print and the audio. listen over and over and over again Whaf I like aboout Audible is I click notes inside the audiobook. I take written notes in the printed copy.
I have listened to the audiobooks about half a dozen times so far - which is why I finally "get" it on a level that I can share and guide you on your journey.
What are you wondering? Ask. Let's talk and get clear. Imagine how you will feel when the frustrations and confusion live in the past - out of your awareness. Do you think you life will flow in a place of true happiness?
True happiness. Isn't that what you truly seek in life? Start now.
How do you discover your True Self, who you were at birth, as opposed to the ego self created by your early caretakers who forged your limiting and probably inaccurate self-image??
You need to know how to shut off your conscious mind and the brain programs that run you.
First, set an intention before you begin your daily meditation – or before going to sleep at night. Actually you can ask questions anytime. Meditation is a good time because you tell your subconscious mind as well as your Spirit what you want to know NOW.
Meditations come in all kinds of forms – the quiet going within, going for a walk – AND you can also you can do things like pick up a pencil or even a crayon and paper – and just put it on the paper and write. Whatever comes out is something you will not access using your conscious mind. This is info from your subconscious mind that your Higher Self, your True Self, feels you are ready to handle and so receive.
As a Specialized Kinesiologist, when I work with people we clear energy blocks to physical and emotional healing. Sometimes we get the full emotional history of the issues. Sometimes we just get clear indications of those emotional issues – the themes like fear or lack of self esteem, anger, etc.
Your Higher Self will never ever present you with anything you are not prepared to handle, to deal with, and to cope with. You can write spontaneously. You can write with your non-dominant hand. You can scribble. Or find a meditation, in the more traditional sense, to adopt. Whatever works for you is the thing to do. Never let someone else tell you what is right for you.
You create your system for asking. Always ask what is best for you, in your highest and best interest.
Ah, then you need to know how to receive and recognize the solutions that WILL come.
Let me give you some examples – you overhear music and the song (or the lyrics) have special meaning that applies to you right then. Or maybe you see back of a newspaper, or a billboard. Pick out one CD in your car and the song is what you need to know. Or you grab the wrong book in the bookstore or the library—you call it your intuition. Yes, your Higher Self, your Spirit, your Soul, is that same energy – your intuition.
Learn to tell the difference between your intuition (your Spirit talking to you) and the Little Voice that dwells in your primitive brain and serves to keep you safe by keeping you stuck, not allowing you to try new things to change your life circumstances.
How do you tell the difference? Ask a question – if you get an answer is you are listening to the Little Voice (LV). Your LV will carry on an entire conversation with you. If you do not hear a response then you got a message from your intuition AKA Higher Self or Spirit. No answer is intuition, Higher Self Soul, Spirit
Many people talk about loving yourself. There is a difference between the self you know and who you really are.
When I refer to the Self I am not talking about the self you treat to bubble baths and walks along the beach. I am talking about your Higher Self, Your Spirit, Your Soul, the immortal part of you that is connected to the Universal Oversoul, the All-is-One, the God Force, Creator – whatever term you use.
When you were first born you were your True Self. But you were unable to filter out incoming messages so your parents, caretakers, siblings and. society put all these descriptions—and limitations – into your subconscious mind telling you who you can and cannot be, what you can and cannot do and what you can and cannot have.
You had no way to stop those messages. They went directly into your subconscious mind (you had not developed the ability to screen those messages with your conscious mind) So file folders were created that define your self image – your self that you call and know as you.
That self is really your ego. Lest we contribute to the bad reputation that term, ego, already has, let me put this into perspective for you. The ego conforms to the definition you and others already call you. Working with the brain and mind it serves to keep you safe – and very stuck.
So long as you do not attempt any behaviors for which you have no programs in your subconscious mind, the ego reigns powerfully over your life. And so you have no chance to grow and, more importantly, no chance to change who you are.
The cold hard facts tell you that you are not who other people told you that you could be. That is just their opinion. Their opinions really do not define you at all.
Who you are is pure energy. Who you are is a Divine Being. All of you is God, Source, Creator. AND God is more than just you.
You are your Spirit. You are your subconscious mind, the connection to God, to All-That-Is. Live in that truth and acknowledge that all you need is readily and always available to you simply by asking – and listening for the response from your True Self, Your Spirit
Plug into the master Source for solutions and answers to your every question. No matter how big or how small your request, your Spirit honors and supplies you. After all, in truth, you and your Spirit are one and the same.
The person you think you are is actually your ego self maintained by your self-image. Only you never made your self-image. And you certainly were not born with it.
So who are you – really?
You are a spirit living in a human body. The real you is part of the Divine All-Is-One that you read about. The real you is that connecting piece to everyone and to everything.
When you remember that truth you realize that struggle really is optional. The way you live your life and how you choose to look at the world determine whether you enjoy a peaceful and joyful existence – or not.
When you study the tenets of every major religion you discover they share a single goal – living in happiness by remembering our connection with the Divine both as ourselves and as the Life Force, God, Creator – whatever term you use.
People only suffer when they forget that Oneness and feel alone and on their own.
But how does that connection happen? By knowing and loving your self. I am not talking about bubble baths and meditation with oils. I am talking about communicating with your Higher Self, your Spirit, your immortal Soul –the many names by which you will know who you really are. I call it your True Self
Discover your True Self, who you were at birth. As a child your parents and siblings, teachers and society told you all about whether you were good or bad, smart or useless, cute or dull, etc. All their comments went into folders they created (not you) in your subconscious mind leading you to create an ego self you think really is you. To hold its power, that ego driven self strides to maintain separateness from your own unlimited possibilities Divine Being.
That separation leads to all struggle. Without the knowings that come constantly from your Spirit, you make choices and decisions by guessing and hoping. You use what you call logic, which is a poor substitute for 100% accurate information that is always in your highest and best interest.
Only your Spirit can provide those answers because only your Spirit knows your past, present and future. It guides you along your path. You want to learn how to listen to its messages.
You also want to learn how to communicate your needs, ask questions for which you want answers and solve problems with the solutions that come with every problem—except you have to learn how to see them.
Your ego mind loses all its power over you if you connect with your Divinity. It places obstacles on your path to take you off course. It knows when you recognize your Truth, who you really are as opposed to your limiting self-image, it will lose its power over you.
Imagine how your world will look and the things you will do when you know that every choice you make comes with the confidence that you will thrive.
Nice picture, isn’t it?
Realize that sometimes events happen that will be in your highest and best interest but they may come in scary or even horrific forms to get your attention and keep you focused on the now. Even those happenings always come with solutions and the gift of learning something you needed to know to progress on your soul journey.
As you know your True Self you will love the real You. That self-love will move you forward through your human journey so you accumulate all the learning you came to gather in this lifetime.
