On Being True to Oneself and Identifying When We Are Not
In our daily lives we often feel empty, lonely or not able to connect with our Self. Many of us have lost the ability to tell if we are truely connected within - our inner connection feels clouded or lost. Feeling this way sometimes is normal, but if we find ourselves becoming more and more robotic or numb, unable to feel ourselves we are running into danger of losing our sense of self. Our sense of self determines our ability to inhabit our own energy body; it anables us to know and enact our boundaries; to have a positive self-image; to feel we belong and of course, to know who we truly are. It can keep us grounded in times of uncertaintanty, allows us to uncover when we lie to ourselves, motivates us to have the courage to grow and express ourselves, and it provides us with our values, integrity and goals.
Our True Self is an integral part of us - the middleman between your soul and your physical being. When we feel disconnected within it shows us that we are off-center, that we distracted by too many different versions of perceived ‘other selves’ - the way we should be, or how others see us. If we see ourselves primarly from an external viewpoint we have allowed our False Self to dominate our life and perception of self.
Seeing yourself through the eyes of others or the collective clouds your ability to feel and love yourself!
