Exploring the Art of Self Discovery

Living the divine self is learning to live with the awareness of our inner power. The key is to be authentic and to truly be who we are. That’s easy to say, but harder to do.

So much of who we are is hidden in the faces and masks we present to the world because of who we think we should be. As we grow older, we sometimes lose our true selves because of negative tapes and messages that have been instilled in us since childhood.

Being able to make small changes, at every step we take, is a chance to grow larger and freer. Even the tiniest move in the direction of emotional freedom is impressive. Every choice we make to triumph over negativity, large or small, is about transforming energy. Then, the chosen nature of such ongoing transformation makes us stronger, brighter, and in turn acts to illuminate our path.

If we are not willing to take our minds off the mundane life, our bodies will be in trauma and our minds in confusion. In order to bring our inner truth into form, we must know what makes us sing, dance, laugh, and love. And, it is in solitude that we find these answers.
