The Who Am I question is either a guiding light for transformation or one completely off someone’s radar. For me, I love getting to know my inner/outer self as I continue to investigate: Why am I different? What causes me to do what I do? What elements of my ego or soul lead my way? How can I be a better person? What do I want/need out of life?
Since I was a young girl and had an unknown voice give me some life guidelines, I have been attracted to knowing this other part of life – my soul essence. In high school I read the few popular metaphysical books around at the time and began to move away from organized religion. I investigated my soul purpose, my soul’s personality, my souls needs and my intuition.
By my 40’s, I was a practiced seeker delving into the countless elements of my mind/body/spirit container. I read spiritual books and articles, felt into information at a conference or talks for what was right for me and carried on deep conversations with like-minded friends. Despite all my study, I am continually amazed at the persona who pops up as me just when I feel I have broken a controlling ego personality habit.
I am now ‘of an age’ to be grateful for my wise soul feedback, grateful for my ongoing inquiry and grateful for the changes I have made to be more settled in my soulful being. I feel I am living a life emanating from my deeper soul while watching to see where old patterns of human ego reaction overtake my thoughts. And, they do, especially when I feel I am getting a grip on balancing my soul and ego!
Here is an interesting exercise you may choose to follow:
Write a summary of who you are. Use descriptive qualities you feel you carry within your soul space rather than what you do in the outer world (no job descriptions!). It can be an eye-opener and game changer if you are ready to change into a fuller soulful being. Here is my short version of Who Am I. Enjoy the process as this is a wonderful mirror to discover more of Who You Are.
I am aware
(this is a process of consciousness)
I a soulful
(when I pay attention)
I am intuitive
(Intuition guides my life)
I am human
(only for a short while – this body will pass)
I am bossy
(when I forget I am a soul)
I am my ego
(more often than I like, it is still my default)
I am very content
(with my family and friends)
I am connected
(especially being in nature)
I am sad
(knowing people are suffering)
I am satisfied
(when I write a good sentence)
I am surprised
(when a stranger expresses a kind compliment)
I am patient
(ha! still working on that one)
I am positive
(my motto – all is well no matter what)
I am controlling
(I am consciously recognizing and changing this)
I am open
(I am always interesting in learning and creating)
I am grateful
(for all I experience – good or odd)
I am love
(when my open heart spills over)
I am my soul
