Self-Discovery 2

As all children do, when you were growing up you wrote a script about who and what you are. And your script probably had some descriptions about you such as: stupid, unworthy, unimportant, clumsy, sickly, incapable, etc, etc. Or you can look inside and come up with what your individual script says about you. Then you can scratch all of that off, because that's not who and what you are. In truth you're beautiful, bright, worthy, strong, capable, brave, poised, etc, etc. And since you're an offspring of your Creator, you are love, peace, light, joy and much more of the same. Wow. What a spectacular creation.

So how do you turn off the script and turn on the truth? This is a lifetime endeavor (I'm still working on it), but the longer you continue discovering your true self, the more your true self will emerge. Go slow at first, and be realistic and reasonable. Self-awareness is very important, but no one can catch and correct everything. If you were riding down a river in a boat, you couldn't count every wave on your way. But you could be aware of whether the water is calm or choppy. It it's calm, you enjoy. It it's choppy, you guide with the oars. Then you get where you're going in a more peaceful state.

Your heart knows your song, but you have to be willing to listen to the words. Sue Rock

When you want to work on something, you need to know what needs attention. Making a list will help clarify how you see yourself--your strengths and your weaknesses--the thoughts, words and actions you use in your daily life. With this list, you can identify what you want to release and what you want to keep. Make no judgments, good or bad. Just be aware.

1. Upon awakening each morning, state your intention: Today I look forward to discovering more of my true self.
2. Practice awareness: Thoughts direct our feelings, words, and actions, so stay in touch with your feelings. Then identify the thought that created the feeling. Listen to what your body is telling you. If something doesn't feel good, it's coming from the script thinking. Otherwise, it's your true self.
3. Confront and release any script thoughts (limiting beliefs), and embrace your true self. Example: I know you, script thought, and I deny that you have any power over me. I release you, and I affirm my true self as one with my Creator.

Your script self may never totally disappear (at least not in this life), but take your time and allow your life to unfold in new ways. This can be interesting, even exciting. Don't criticize your failures, but always celebrate your successes.

Most important, love and accept yourself, move through your life with your head high and your shoulders back, and claim the divine self that you are.

Welcome to the real you.
