Now look, before getting ahead, this post is not about whether we can prove we are truly aware or not. I’m not going on the movie Transcendence level (for those who’ve seen it). I’m referring to a different kind of awareness; the self. I’m speaking of introspection.
Everything seems to happen by accident when we are not self-aware of who we are, what we want and how we think.
When we become aware of how we perceive life, ourselves and other people, everything starts to make a whole lot more sense.
Nothing “just” happens. Everything happens for a reason, whether we are the trigger of that reason or not. But the only way to become aware of the reasons is to become self-aware.
Few things to become aware of as soon as possible :
– what you don’t like and why it bothers you
– who you are
– who others are in your life
– how you treat yourself
– how you treat others
– how they treat you
– how you respond
– how they respond to you
– how you react
– how they react to you
– what you desire for yourself versus what others seem to desire for you
– where you are right now versus where you want to go
Observing our own thoughts, actions, circumstances and life is a great way to bring ourselves in alignment with the core of who we are.
When I gave in to that exercise, I realized many parts of myself needed heavy healing. I noticed some of my life/thought patterns were toxic and preventing me from progressing and living in abundance/happiness.
That’s when I woke up to higher grounds.
I was not going in the right direction and I was surrounding myself with all the wrong kind of people for me. I was unaware of my own inner power/potential and how my thoughts were influencing my life.
That’s why today, I can say with confidence that self-awareness is the answer to everything.
If you wonder why your life is a mess, stop looking outside and pointing the finger, look within and ask yourself “Am I a mess inside? How do I think? Do I live in a friendly or hostile Universe? Do I love myself? Am I happy right now?”
Be brave enough to look within and observe yourself with an honest eyeglass. Don’t sugar coat. We all have weaknesses and strengths. However, sometimes we are unaware that we are a bit more on the weaker/wicker/negative side.
Now once you’re there, remember that there’s always an equal opposite to everything. This means that for every weakness or toxic pattern/behavior/thought you will discover about yourself, there is something positive to work with.
In other words, acknowledging the negative is the first step. However, in order to fix it, we must focus on the positive to reinforce the good side of ourselves.
The goal of self-awareness should never be to blame or shame oneself, although feelings of shame and guilt may surface. It’s normal. It’s part of the process.
Nonetheless, the end goal of introspection should always be progress, innovation, elevation, potential, change, enlightenment and empowerment.
We go through the pain of introspection to come triumphant on the other side, not to stay stuck.
Infinite love, health, healing, wealth, success, happiness, awareness, peace and wisdom your way
