Why are we not being our true self?
Our true selves or our higher selves always exist; unfortunately they are hidden under our patterns and fears. Who are we, really? In our day-to-day life it appears that we might be the ego acting out. But is that who you truly are? If we were to live in our most authentic self we would not be in the ego mind at all. We are pure spiritual energy and light inhabiting this physical body.
From birth until around five years old we actually express our true self. We are so connected to source still. Then through the experiences we have in life we slip into our patterns. We learn that we need to act and talk a certain way to make sure that others love and approve of us. Then our behaviors become habitual patterns. Then we act out of these patterns for years and years and wonder why it is so hard to shift them.
It is only through our experiences in life with our primary partners, our parents, our friends and acquaintances that we have the opportunity to work on unwinding those patterns. The triggers we have are like a knock on the door to let us know that there is work to be done so that we can shift the patterns and live in our true self.
This is why I love facilitating mother-daughter retreats and couples retreats, because there is a huge opportunity to shift old beliefs and start living in a higher place of being through these relationships.
The biggest aha moments in my retreats are recognizing that triggers are a good thing for our growth not something we need to run from. Our goal is to live in our higher self more than our ego mind. It is through our relationships that we have the opportunity to heal our woundedness and shift the patterns and behave with love.
