Who Am I?A Technique to Discover Your True Self
“Who Am I?” The question we all ask…
Self-identity is the one thing many of us yearn for. No one likes to feel lost & everyone likes to have a strong sense of clarity in who they are and direction in what they want. The technique below is designed to help you inquire about the truth of who you are to help you connect to your true, authentic self.
When you have an understanding of who you are, it’s a lot easier to make sound choices and decisions because you’ll know what’s good for you and what isn’t. Having a strong sense of self creates a strong sense of direction.
Who Am I? A Technique
Take a comfortable seated position with both hands resting on the area of your body that holds your true self. Notice how your hands rest on your heart or belly because you are not your mind, nor are you your body.
Take a few deep breaths. Feel the place under your hands rise and fall with every breath.
Feel yourself coming to a place of ease, of stillness, of silence.
Continue to ground deeper and deeper into your true self, with every inhale and exhale.
Start to repeat the question: “Who am I?” at the end of every inhale. And at the end of every exhale, answer with: “I am…” Fill in the blank.
Who are you when the world is quiet? Who are you underneath all of the self-limiting beliefs and labels? Who are you when you were most happiest in your life?
Continue to repeat this pattern of breath-question until you reach a still point where you feel so connected to yourself that a joy starts to spread from an inner knowing of who you are. This inner wisdom is the place that you can always come back to when you’re feeling lost and unsure. In these moments, take a few deep breaths & remind yourself of who you are.
The truth is that your true self isn’t ever too far, you’ve just got to work past the layers that have built up overtime and blocked your sight of it.
Comment below with your truth. Who are you?
