We've been in search of ourselves since the very moment we breathed life into this world. We are curious by nature for a reason. Our innate ability to ask questions is the "seeker" in us, and what we decide to explore is in our hands, our world is filled with infinite treasures and possibilities ready to be DISCOVERED!
So, why are YOU here? What's your PURPOSE? Well, for some, that can easily be identified as of way of "living". Buddha believed that living life in the present moment, not only reduced stress exponentially, but also provided overall happiness. One way of achieving eternal bliss was through deep meditations. Buddha considered meditation as a lifestyle, he remained dedicated to connecting with his higher-self, and because of his faithfulness to his beliefs, he created a peaceful world from within.
How does this relate to discovering who you are, you ask? Well, in order for us to gain a better understanding to who we truly are, we need to dig a little deeper. When we learn to quiet our minds, the answers in which we seek, unveil themselves. Our journey is an endless road built on lessons and teachings. Each situation that takes place in our lives is specifically placed there to help us grow. It is because of those events that we are able to evolve into the greatest versions of ourselves.
A great way to do some "soul searching" is contributing a few minutes of your time to sitting in complete silence. That's right, sitting in a comfortable position that aligns your chakras and grounds you to mother earth, will improve your entire essence. Just close your eyes, and start focusing on your breathing. Breathe in deeply through the nose for 8 seconds, hold for 7 seconds (count your heartbeats), and exhale for 8. Make sure to inhale to the very core of your stomach where your sacral chakra lies, and breathe out slowly from the mouth. Imagine yourself in your safe space. It could be the beach, forest, galaxy, anywhere! Invite your senses, can you smell the fresh ocean waters? Or hear the birds singing sweet melodies as they take flight? Allow your imagination to lead the way, release any need for control. Just let go...Mmm, isn't this nice? Tranquility at its finest. Now, call upon your guides (if you don't know who they are, ask them to introduce themselves to you). Ask to connect to your highest divine self, and allow your questions to be released to the Universe for answering. Keep an open-mind to the way your answers will be received, and you will discover a deeper side of yourself.
The key to unlocking the inner you is through meditation. It is the soul's way of traveling to a whole new world where your thoughts create endless masterpieces! Your mind, body, and spirit (trinity), benefits from this daily practice. Now, it is up to you to keep this access available. Escape into yourself frequently, explore the divinity that you are, and never stop seeking. You are a marvelous creation of SOURCE energy, embrace the very essence that is YOU!
