Last week, I "came out" and shared that I'm an empathic intuitive, but, that is only one aspect of who I am. There are a lot more traits that I identify with, but they all just scratch the surface. If I were to ask you, "Who are you?", how might you reply? Some may identify with their career and tell me they're a teacher, writer, actress, psychologist, construction worker, etc. Or, they may tell me they're a mother, father, daughter, grandfather, cousin, etc. Some may add in their qualities telling me they're a successful lawyer, a hard-working stay-at-home parent or a full-time volunteer. Some may hold a more negative view: 'I'm a lowly secretary' or 'everyone sees me as a lazy bum.' If I asked you to describe in detail who you are, how would you do it? What would your description include? Right now, I would like you to STOP reading this blog and take the next 2-3 minutes to make your list. This is a very valuable reflection tool and is more effective if you do it before going any further. Once you've made your list, by all means, please continue reading.
Have you made your list? Did you put down all of your characteristics, traits and identifiers? Is it a long list or a short list? Do you find that you've mostly described yourself in a positive or a negative way? Did you happen to list your Soul as part of who you are? I'll bet that most of what you listed applies to your persona, but here's a little, well-known secret - you are your Soul. That's who you TRULY are. When I deal with the deceased, it's not their body I interact with, it's their energy - their Soul.
There's a wonderful saying that really changed my life:
My body is mine, but it is not ME.
My mind is mine, but it is not ME.
My emotions are mine, but they are not ME.
My mistakes are mine, but they are not who I AM.
I AM my Soul.
How often do we define ourselves by how we look or how we think or by the mistakes we've made in the past? That's not who we really are. They're just the constructs of a box that we allow ourselves to be in. We should love and take care of our body and our mind. We should feel our emotions, but watch how we react. We should own our mistakes and the consequences that may come from them. What we should not do is allow any of these things to define us. They are not all that we are. You are more than just a tall, shy girl. You are more than just an overweight guy. You are more than just an addict. We are our Soul and our Soul comes from the highest form of Love.
Another great saying is: I am not a body that has a Soul, I am a Soul that has a body. Your body and your ego help you to exist, learn and grow in this world. What you go through in life, these are actually lessons that your Soul desires to learn. We feel the bad so we can know the good. We feel the sadness so we can know the happiness. We feel disease so we can know good health (and appreciate it).
We very often allow our ego and our emotions to run our life. But, if you take some time and connect with who you really are, you will connect with that part of you who knows your purpose for being here, that knows if you should pursue this job or that or be with a certain person or not. It is true that your answers lie within yourself. So, I invite you to take a few moments each day and connect with your Soul. It's as simple as just saying "Hello (you can insert your name here), how are you? Is there anything I should know or can do for you today?" I invite you to take that leap and start to get to know yourself, who you really are.
