Losing Who You Thought You Were, Discovering Who You Truly ARE

There will be a time on your spiritual journey where you become unrecognizable to your own self. Things that used to upset you, no longer bother you. People that used to bring about negative emotional reactions from you, either drop out of your life naturally, or you notice their behavior changes. Their behavior is different because you are different. The world as you used to see it no longer exists, because your relationship with yourself has changed, thereby changing your perspective of life. This may feel a little disconcerting at first. The declutching from our own egos and minds may feel slightly strange and unnerving because we are quite literally learning how to navigate through the world from our new sense of self. Our old self is a thing of the past, and when we don’t find ourselves reacting in the same old way to the same old problems we may feel like we are completely losing a sense of who we are. If this is the stage that you are at, Perfect! This means your consciousness is evolving. As long as we remain completely open and accepting of this new stage in our evolution it will take us to states of being we have not previously been at. Yes, it may be scary at first. We had become so attached to our things, and people, and our beliefs about ourselves, that when the attachments start to break we feel a little shaky. If we allow this inner peace to emerge, one that is no longer attached to the illusory “sense of self”, and to external reality, we find that an overwhelming sense of calm overtakes us. An authentic version of our being begins to emerge showing us that all those things that we thought we “needed” or were worried about, were never anything to stress about in the first place. Life is moving us along in the exact path we are supposed to be on if only we become comfortable in the “unknowingness” of it all. We are starting to feel states of consciousness that we have not previously experienced, and our only task is to trust that it is bringing us to a place of embodying more of our true selves, which ultimately means more happiness, love and inner peace for ourselves and those around us.
