Greater Self-Awareness comes from truly knowing who you are at your core.
“Know Thyself” is centuries old. It is vital as you become more aware of who you are. Your desires shift and change and become more apparent. “Know Thyself” and being fully self-aware is paramount to living passionately and on purpose. Greater Self~awareness allows us all kinds of peace-of-mind and happiness because we are (re)directed to (re)discovering our true passions.
This truth and inner awareness is one that you can fully trust. It comes from connecting intimately to your soul’s wisdom. As you embrace greater self-awareness, it helps you to quickly overcome obstacles, find peace-of mind and leads to the ability to take responsibility for your actions because you take them based on your inner wisdom. Self~awareness allows you to lead a life of happiness and joy.
Creating a practice that develops greater self-awareness is important.
Creating a habit of self-reflection and soul listening allows you to focus on what’s important to you. Your priorities, purpose, and passions become clearer and clearer. By centering into your hearing your soul’s whispers, you are able to understand that deep sense of self so many are searching for. It is in this habit that you fully understand yourself, your desires, and find the courage to forge your way forward.
6 Essential Ingredients for Greater Self~Awareness
To be self-aware, you must be able to be in a space of calmness at any given moment. Without getting the appropriate amount of rest and being tired, your ability fully engage with yourself is limited
Stress creeps up on you and you are unable to quiet your mind and soothe your emotions. You will not be able to clearly hear the messages coming from your soul for full self~awareness at any given time. When tired, one starts reacting to life instead of responding with your truth.
When rested, you take actions based on your Self~awareness and deepest passions. You become more aware of your inner promptings and are better able to live from this centered wisdom for greater peace-of-mind.
2) Finding Soul-itude.
Creating space and time to be still and quiet is one of the key ingredients to greater self~awareness. Creating this cornerstone habit allows the quiet space for understanding. In this quiet, the place of deep breathing, you quiet your active mind. You can soothe emotions that too often take center stage of your life and you base your decisions on them instead of your truth.
This Soul-itude space allows inner reflection to begin your journey to greater self-awareness. It allows us to fully connect with your soul’s wisdom. It gives you the space to hear your inner awareness. This truth gives you choices you may not have seen before and confidence to take action based upon the best choice possible.
3) Connect With Nature.
Spending time in the fresh air, finding water to sit by, standing on the firm strength of the earth and embracing the sun and sky, allows you to enhance your self~awareness. By connecting to the elements of air, water, fire, and earth, you are able to center our own thoughts, release your emotions, elevate your vibration, and find your physical strength.
Nature allows you to stand still. It gives you the space to create a greater connection to your soul. By taking time in nature, you are supported at the core of your being and you discover the opportunity for greater self~awareness.
Greater Self Awareness Comes from being your own Sacred Observer
4) Listening With Your Pen.
Self~awareness and self-reflection is best understood and supported by your sacred pen. Sacred Soul Journaling™ allows you to develop a skill in writing that creates greater self~awareness. It allows you to fully accept your weaknesses and supports you in developing your strengths. You increasingly become your own sacred observer.
Writing in a space of soul-i-tude guides you to your inner truth. It takes your soul-reflections and grounds them in your life. This type of specialized journaling allows you to connect the dots from your soul’s truth to seeing the best choices before you and taking courageous action in life.
5) Seek Honest & Objective Support.
While you can be your own sacred observer and grow exponentially, Embracing self~awareness is not always easy. It can be lonely. Along the path, you can easily second guess yourself. It is done best with objective support.
Going inward in the space of soul-i-tude and nature supports understanding yourself but can bring you to crossroads that may be difficult to navigate as you get your bearings to your newly found wisdom. Emotions will surface and the temptation to put blinders onto your truth will be easy.
These bling-spots and limiting beliefs can be tamed by getting honest and objective feedback. This kind of support can not come from your partner, your colleagues, or your friends as they are often too invested in the outcome. Rather, engaging in conversation with a trusted spirit-based coach, a soul coach who allows you to safely take these blinders off, gives you unique soul-play activities that allow for greater self-awareness and support you living your truth (Discover More)
6) Live Life Curiously.
Once you begin your journey to greater self~awareness, you will begin to have more discerning questions. You will have the desire to go deeper into personal understanding. This gives rise to the importance of curiosity.
These discerning questions will be answered in the most mysterious of ways. It is fun to be on the lookout for these answers through your own curiosity. They will come as signs from the Universe. Following them will be the guideposts your journey needs.
Being curious will allow you to see these signs more often. Self~awareness will allow you to understand the meaning of these messages more clearly. Curiosity and self~awareness go hand in hand in the path of personal growth and development.
