How do you find yourself?
The old cliché.
Go to Tibet and sit with monks or find yourself a Shaman or Yagya?
Maybe watch Eat, Pray, Love a million times while gorging on ice cream?
Lock yourself in a cabin in the woods alone…
or complete a 10-day Vipassana?
Maybe you are one of the lucky ones and you aren’t lost?
I found myself recently.
On a toilet.
From trying the Eat, Pray, Love and giant tub of ice cream thing.
It doesn’t work.
From one soul to another – finding yourself is easy once you know what your looking for.
Me? Well, let’s say I’ve traveled many places, read many books, hired many teachers and laid with the singing bowls.
Finding yourself can be costly.
I mean, in a good way. After all, who doesn’t want to visit the monasteries of Italy?
Filling yourself with distractions is usually not the way to do it.
It’s actually much easier than that.
So, ya, I found myself.
It wasn’t a hallelujah moment when the sky departed and GOD himself came down and whispered in my ear.
The problem is that most of us are still waiting for that bolt of lightning, the clouds to part, the call from beyond, or a ghost to visit us in the middle of the night with an instruction manual, or even a pirate map would be good at this point.
We are all so desperately waiting for something to tap us on that shoulder and say “come forth my child and do this…”
It doesn’t work like that.
Maybe for a select few of really intuitive people who’ve honed their skills, but for the rest of us – there will be no bolt of lightning when it comes to finding ourselves, our true path, our calling.
Finding myself was UNEVENTFUL at best!
Sorry, not sorry, to disappoint.
The truth is you will need to pick up your magic wand and ANOINT & APPOINT yourself.
You still haven’t done that.
And that is why you are still STUCK in the “finding myself” phase – and will be forever and ever AMEN.
That is NOT the place you want to be STUCK.
Okay, it is fun for the first year when you are backpacking across Europe.
However, from one seeker to another – it gets old after a while, and you end up wishing you just comitted in the first place.
When you don’t find yourself, it eventually goes from FUN to BUM.
Yes, it becomes a bummer to flip-flop through your life. (See chapter 2 of my book: Strut)
YOU become a bummer to be around.
YOU have no direction and people who are directionless are B-O-R-I-N-G!
YOU end up attracting more BUMS around you.
However, there is a way to overcome all of this.
There is a way to FIND YOURSELF.
And of course, I want you to find yourself, so hence I’m sharing the STEPS to FINDING YOURSELF!
Here’s HOW I found myself and YOU can too!
STEP1: Assert your “I”
Follow me for a minute here.
When you use the word “I” you invoke the “WILL” or your innermost part of you, your spirit and ego and all the stuff you can’t see.
Using the word “I” is the most power of words. The word “I” is always used in setting an intention.
“I am going to exercise.”
“I need to get groceries.”
“I want to watch TV.”
You can’t NOT use “I” without setting an intention.
Even if the intention is trivial, like going to the bathroom, you still, in some way, shape, or form, set that intention.
AND YOU FOLLOW THROUGH.
Almost every time!
When you assert the “I” statements, you draw up from your internal “WILL” you actually end up “establishing a close connection between the Individual Will (your own personal desires) and the Universal Will (that of the universe or God, whatever you believe)” according to my ol’ pal William Walker Atkinson in his 1901 works on Thought Vibration. (Another great read from the past!)
The problem with many of us is that other than asserting ourselves for great purposes we don’t aim very high and claim what is rightfully ours.
We aim for comfort, not for the magnificent.
Finding yourself requires one simple thing and that is asserting your “I” in a powerful way.
Create the statements of what you want to bring forth into your reality.
When you don’t know what you want to create or bring forth in your life you are scattered, directionless, and chaotic energy.
When you set the clear intentions of ‘I will’ or ‘I am’ you instantly create some order in your life, a path to follow.
You have found yourself when you have direction, and when you have direction, you have found meaning for your life.
Assert your “I”.
Then take it a step further and….
STEP 2: Claim Self-Mastery of Your Lower Self
Again, my good friend, William Walker Atkinson writes this.
AND it hit me on the head.
This is where I flail about.
This is where I get stuck.
I imagine most of us do.
We haven’t mastered ourselves.
We haven’t mastered the “animal” part of us that just wants to eat, drink, and have sex all day long.
“All things are good when we learn to master them – but no thing is good when it masters us.” – William W. Atkinson
How are we to do amazing things when we are “slaves to the lower parts of our mental being”?
We are slave to our moods, passions, appetites, unworthy thoughts, negative thoughts – to name a few.
I ask myself then, “So, how do we master the parts of us that end up running the show?”
Ask good questions, get good answers.
To this, I have but one answer so far…
Give yourself some marching orders.
Your “rebellious” self is running the show.
Create a new show.
Get a new script.
Create new thoughts.
Get a new cast.
Take your rightful place as QUEEN (or KING) of the gong show you are calling your life right now.
Again, I speak to myself here. But, you know that you are called by the Divine to be the Queen/King of your life, so why are you letting the lower planes, lower vibrations, lower self take hold of you?
All I know is this, that all the people I admire, look up to, & who inspire me are the people who have mastered the lower levels of themselves.
They eat with restrain, exercise, do the work, have all the money and relationships and pretty much HAVE IT ALL!
And they have self-mastery in ALL areas. Not just one or two areas.
So, I encourage you to find yourself, where you are today, right here, right now.
Because today you….
