The True Self
Within each of us, at all times, is an essence, our life force. Many call it awareness or consciousness. Many call it spirit or soul, the core self, authentic self or the essential self. It is who or what we truly are behind the veil of our personalities and conditioned ways of being.
In our society, many of us are mostly disconnected from this essence and live as our egos instead. The automatic, reactive, survival-based storehouse of self-reinforcing patterns and programs based on all the conditioning of our past. The ego’s in place to protect us and keep us safe and help us protect our essential needs – but it needs some updating if we ever want to feel fully alive, confident, hopeful, free and fulfilled.
Developing the inner leadership skills or capacities below by using various practices & tools we teach here at HeartRich, makes it possible to simply be your Self. Many describe it as a state of flow or being in the zone, trusting ourselves and letting ourselves simply be. Meaning simply being your essence, in real time, without resistance, interference, fear or force.
Spending time connected to our deeper selves, is essential to have a vital experience of life and we don’t realize that until we reconnect. Once we do, and live from our core more often, we increase our wellbeing, build resilience and have a great sense of life satisfaction.
