Who Am I

By | March 2, 2016

Do You Know Who You Really Are?

When we ask ourselves, who am I, what we are really asking is who our soul really is.who am I

We all have spiritual souls that are within us. Our soul is who we really are. We present ourselves to the world with a body and outside personality but that is not who we really are.

When we die, we will leave our body and personalities behind and our soul will live on. So what we present to the world is our human personality in our human body.

You see we are a whole lot more than our human form.

So Who Am I

As children we are born with our true souls. We then develop our subconscious mind and our egos. We learn things according to beliefs of other people that we are around such as our parent, teachers and friends.

Usually, we don’t question these things because they are for the most part coming from adults that we trust.

It is when we are adults that some of our beliefs from our childhood that we still have, just don’t feel right anymore. That is when we begin to question things.

This is the start of us finding out who we really are. We begin to look inside for the reasons why we feel this way.

What we are feeling is our beliefs are not matching up with who we really are. Our soul, who we really are, is screaming at us to be found.

I know this journey. For me it started at a young age. Although, I did not have any idea what I was searching for or for that matter that I was searching for anything. I just knew something didn’t feel right and so I would go on the inside and just think about all sorts of things.

I was too young to figure out much, but I did develop the habit of going on the inside whenever I felt something was wrong and look for the answer.

Life has a way of throwing things at you to try to wake you up. Make you look at things differently.

Sometimes we learn from these things and sometimes we see them as bad things happening to us and so there is no learning. But unless we learn what is trying to be taught, then more of the lesson will be presented to us at a later date in a different form.

Whatever is being presented to you needs to be looked at and we need to try to figure out what our lesson is. As we are able to figure out things , it moves us closer to our true selves.

As we look inside and try to figure out answers to questions we have, we start to get to know who we really are. The more we go inside, the clearer this will become.

No one can truly answer who am I  unless they spend time looking inside and finding out.

Our true soul does not care about the things our egos make us believe we care about. Our true selves seek love above all else. From love comes happiness.

Our egos want to be right, hate to make mistakes, want to gossip about others, need to judge others, and the list goes on and on.

When we figure out who we truly are at a soul level than all those things our ego wants us to believe are no longer important and become less and less of our personality.

When you are in a situation that something does not feel right to you, go inside and see what it was about that situation that felt wrong.

Learn to listen to your emotions they will not lie to you but your thoughts will.

The more you progress the more whole you will start to feel. You will begin to see things differently. Situations will have more meaning and you will understand people better.

By understanding yourself, you will no longer second guess things, you will just know. You will become mentally strong.

When you reach this point, you will no longer ask , who am I , because you will know.

    Such a lovely article. I began meditating about 30 years ago and it changed my life. Through meditation, I became aware of myself as presence, the watcher of my thoughts. The notion of our soul surviving death is quite believable once you see yourself as pure awareness and not the body or the personality as you explain.

    I’m blessed with 5 grandchildren. A few years ago, I took my oldest grandson hiking for the first time. He was about 7. As we entered the woods, he picked up a hiking stick he had found and said, “I always use a hiking stick when I’m hiking.” Knowing he had never hiked before and I asked, “When have you ever hiked before?” He said, “Before I was born.”

    Thank you so much for your article. It brought me back to a wonderful book I read, called the The Four Agreements.

    Just like you mention here, when we are born and are still children, that’s when our true soul gets to shine. As time goes on, we are “domesticated,” and are taught how we are expected to behave in this world.

    We don’t question this, because adults are in authority roles, and we admire them and want to be like them. But they’re teaching us to beat up on ourselves and suppress our feelings and desires!

    I hope we can all break free from that a little bit, and live in a more open-minded, less domesticated world.

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for your comment. You said it so very well. Please know that I am not putting blame on parents. Most did the best the could or knew how. But it’s time we all realized that we have limiting beliefs from our childhood that maybe holding us back.

    I appreciate your thoughts on soul searching and feeling complete. Albeit a Christian belief, I personally believe that God is essential to making this soul connection and feeling of wholeness.

    Personally, I find it so important to seek solitude to let my soul rest in this materialistic, soul-fatiguing world. I spend time in meditation and prayer every day to connect with my true soul and work on letting the ego go!

    Thank you for your sharing your thoughts, I find this so important and hope that you will help many people on their search to connect with their true soul & creating a clutter-free mind! Blessings!

      Hi Bri,

      Thank you for your comment. I think it is awesome that you seek solitude. It is amazing how much we can learn by just being quiet inside our own heads.

    I like the idea of knowing who we truly are and letting the ego go. That’s a path to happiness and contentment, for sure. But I think it would be helpful if you provide information about what you mean exactly when you say “go inside.” A lot of people don’t know where to start when it comes to being introspective. Could you provide a little help to those who haven’t been so self aware? Thanks! Keep up the good work.

      Hi Melisse,

      I hear what you are saying about “go inside” I do have other pages that explain it. I will see what I can do to make it more clear on this page. Thanks.

    I was captivated by your article. When I was young I ‘went inside’ as you call it but I always thought of that as withdrawing into myself to get away from things that upset, hurt or confused me. I never thought of it as searching for, I guess, my soul. Your post has really touched me and I am going to consciously ‘go inside’ by setting aside some time to meditate.

    1. Gloria

      Hi Margaret,

      I too did the same thing as you. I was like trying to figure out things all the time. I am glad that my article made sense to you and helped you see things in a new light. I am so happy that you have decide to meditate. I hope you had time to read some of my other posts as they would also help you.

    Hi Gloria,
    I loved your article. Lately I’ve really felt the need to quiet my environment and mind and just retreat “inside” for peace. I crave clarity, focus and peace. So many things compete with my time and attention. “To do” lists, life management, work, family drama, pursuit of goals, inner chatter. I just want peace and the feeling that everything is going to work out okay. Do you recommend meditating for getting to know who I am?
    Thanks.

      Hi Alyssa,

      Meditation is good , although a lot slower process then what I show you to do in my 2 articles ,how to stop the negative thoughts and how to quiet the mind. The technique I tell you about has amazing results in a very short period of time and you can do it anywhere. It only takes 15 seconds. It’s definitely worth checking out.

    Hi Gloria, exceĺlent post, thank you!
    You’ve taken the greatest question of all time and the reason for all existential crises and answered it, simply, beautifully. I am reading a book on exactly this subject, A Course in Miracles. Wonderful to see its teachings echoed here. ACIM speaks of our body, the world and all that we fear as illusion, with Spirit or Love the Truth, Reality, and Forgiveness our path to Peace, Joy and Life.
