Who Are You?

How well do you know you?

How well do you know other people?

Who are you?

In business, you may talk about your role (I’m a consultant). In life, you may talk about your role (I’m a mother).

Quick exercise: Describe yourself with a one-word adjective that starts with the same sound of your first name. I’ll go first, Radiant Ramona.

Now, the image we see of ourselves is not always the image the rest of the world sees.

Understanding how we are wired and the impact it has on other people requires operating from a conscious level. Too often, we navigate life on a subconscious level, making assumptions without getting to know the otherness of the other.

We have millions of patterns in our subconscious brain that determine how we interact with others. If we don’t challenge them through consciousness, things happen to us. We think we have no control over it, but we do.

We can have a new thought, at any time, about anything in our lives that we would like to be different. It starts with knowing you, knowing others, and understanding how to adapt and connect.

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” ~Carl Jung

The meaning of dreams has drawn plenty of controversies. Some view dreams as our higher self – healing, advising, encouraging, and sometimes warning us of impending dangers.

Others view dreams as nothing more than a vision pulled from our memory and shaped by our imagination.

Whichever you choose to believe, this broadened sense of awareness lends itself to various meanings and new possibilities.

Dreams are a divine gift that many often take for granted – not realizing that the dream state is an expanded state of consciousness.

Stephen LaBerge sums dreams up well “Not all lucid dreams are useful, but they all have a sense of wonder about them. If you must sleep through a third of your life, why should you sleep through your dreams, too?”

Love Yourself

There are many images of how we should look, what we should consume, what material items we should possess, and the list goes on. This false sense of identity keeps us chasing things that may not be in our best interest and does not define who we are within.

How you see yourself is a self-fulfilling prophecy. We all have something in us that makes us unique. Take the time to discover who you are. What works for one person may not necessarily work for you. A new outfit, cosmetic surgery, or tangible item does not make you any different internally. You will still have the same insecurities with these items as you did without them if you are not secure within yourself.

Loving yourself begins with making a conscious decision to be happy with who you are and channeling that energy to lead a more fulfilling life. The most important relationship you will ever have is the one you have with yourself.
