Who Are You?


Let’s talk about the exploration of self.  As an intuitive life coach, my sessions usually begin by asking the client why they came to see me and what it is they hope to learn?  Invariably, the answer comes in some form of “I want to understand why I am here.”  I believe that most people, including myself, have had trouble knowing where to begin this process.  I find that starting with understanding yourself and your actions is the best way. It can be hard to look honestly at yourself.  It requires a willingness to look deeply into what makes you tick. I really like the way spirit addresses this topic…

To explore one’s self is to let go of any attachment to what you think you should be. It is to look deeply into why you are here and your reactions to the world. We have talked about fear, anger, and feelings of unrest. Let’s talk about how to get to the true you, and how to bring that forward in a way that helps you understand your actions.

To explore or to look deeply means to identify what it is that keeps you reacting and feeling in a way that brings discontent to your life. What are the emotions behind the reactions? What are the emotions behind the feelings of discontent? Explore the possibility that how you are feeling is just a reaction to a thought about yourself.  If you were to look at this thought as something you have learned and can unlearn, you would see that the exploration can bring you to peace within. 

Understanding your thoughts and why you have them is really the key to letting go of them. We are saying that exploration and reflection are an integral part of the learning in this life. As you reflect, as you look to your motivations, as you understand yourself, life begins to bring you joy. The joy comes from knowing yourself. The joy comes from accepting yourself. The joy comes from finally being you. Believe your life has a purpose. Understand that learning is what you came to do. Be open to any possibility, because truly, you exist to evolve into a greater version of yourself. The sooner you explore, the sooner the joy arrives. 

When we allow ourselves an honest assessment of who we are and strive to better our place in the world, we open doors to the answers we seek.  As each door opens, another answer is waiting.  I chose this picture because it reminds me of what we can achieve. Each branch represents a growth opportunity as we explore our reason for being. This can ultimately help us to answer the question “Why am I here?” for ourselves.

As always, please share with your friends, family, or anyone else you think might enjoy reading this. Help me to spread light to the world!

Always Be You, Trisha
