Do you know yourself? Like, really, REALLY know yourself? What is your level of self-understanding?
I want to challenge you right now; take a moment and just pause. Try to answer the questions I am about to ask you.
Who are you? Do you accept her/him, flaws and all?
Who are you without labels - without being a mom, friend, brother, or spouse?
Who are you without your job, the clothes you wear, the things you do?
All of the above are what you do, what you wear, or who you are to someone else. They aren’t WHO YOU ARE.
Who you are has nothing to do with the external world. Who you are is often hidden in the layers beneath what you THINK other people/society desire you to be.
I’ve been an intuitive development and mindset coach for a long time. At the beginning of my “spiritual journey,” I realized I didn’t know who I was. Sure, I knew what I liked and didn’t like, but I had never taken the time to truly get to know myself.
Without getting to know ourselves, we can’t fully accept ourselves. Without learning to accept ourselves, we can’t fully love ourselves.
Without fully loving ourselves (flaws and all), it’s hard to truly love another or manifest our desires….because the truth is, if we don’t know ourselves, we don’t ever really know what we want - just what we think looks good at the time!
The more you deepen your connection to yourself, find self-awareness, and sort through the limiting beliefs that keep you stuck, the better your life will be - organically!
It won’t take force, you won’t have to work so hard to manifest, relationships that serve/don’t will become apparent to you, and honestly….money will flow easier to you.
It’s not magic - it’s learning to let go of resistance. This is where people get tripped up regarding money, relationships, jobs, and ultimately happiness - sometimes what we think we need isn’t what we need at all - but because we haven’t taken the time to find that sense of depth - we are flying blindly!
Here are 10 journaling prompts to help you deepen your self-connection, identify blocks, and step into your best version!
(I recommend starting with “Dear Highest-Self” or a variation you’re comfortable with that will address your deepest layers directly)
What is on my heart that I am not seeing?
In what ways have I been holding myself back from the life I deserve?
How can I heal from what I can and can not see? How can I let go of what isn’t serving me?
Show me the places inside me that need the most love.
Where have I left energy behind that is still pulling at me? How can I heal/call this energy back to me?
What limiting beliefs come up around _________ (money, relationships, love, success, myself) for me? (Pro tip! After any kind of limiting beliefs work, always go back through and debunk each one! Turn it into a new story that SUPPORTS the desired outcome!)
If I were to show up as my best, most authentic version, what qualities does he/she embody? How does she show up, feel, look? How do people respond to him/her?
What are some ways I can work more closely to my highest self and get out of the “ego” self?
I am ready, willing, and excited to let go of what isn’t serving me. I am ready for change. What are some things I can do to get there?
What are the parts of me I’ve yet to accept, and how can I work to love them unconditionally?
Give these a try, and let me know what you think!
