1. Start where you are
It is a life-long process of knowing yourself and uncovering/discovering parts and aspects of yourself so that you can be ‘who you really are’. This is indeed the journey of life! However, it helps to start where we are. We can do this by knowing our values, knowing what our triggers and wounds are, and knowing what is our purpose in life. It also helps to ask the question, how do we aspire to be?
2. Know your values
You may start by thinking about what are your top five highest values. We all have many values that are important to us but what are your top five? When you know what these are and have them integrated with who you are, then you have a landing place and a compass by which to navigate when decisions are to be made. When we act from our values we feel aligned with our integrity and when we are in alignment we know we are being true to ourselves.
3. Know your mission and purpose in life
We all need to have a big why in our lives. What makes us excited, what is our passion, what really motivates us. These are big questions which require some deep reflection and also they may change and evolve over time.
4. Breathe into what feels true
Finally, from moment to moment we have the capacity to choose. When we practice pausing and breathing deeply, sensing inwards and putting the question inside: what feels most authentic right now in this moment, we find a freedom to act from a place that resonates more deeply with our inner selves, a place from which authenticity can flow.
