Back To Your True Self

Back To Your True Self

“Your willingness to look at how and where you have given away your power is the roadmap that leads you back to your true self. The journey can begin at any number of moments in your life.

For most of us, it comes when you realize chasing after someone else’s idea of love, happiness and success produces more pain and suffering than it brings joy and fulfillment.

That realization opens you up to where you lost sense of who you truly are. This can be uncomfortable as it brings you into full awareness of some potentially painful moments that have been allowed to unconsciously direct your life.

Without healing the pain, it is easy to carry the grief with you from one stage of life into another.

Even in the moments when you summon the strength to rise like the Phoenix from the ashes of despair or defeat, you can still find yourself facing life obstacles. This is especially true if you haven’t fully done the inner work required to unlock your true self and disengage from unhealthy or unwanted attachments.

Therefore, consciously undoing the victim mindset, from childhood to adulthood, is a key component that frames all four-steps to Reconnect with Your True Self.”
