Are you stealing your own identity?
You’ve most likely heard about the dangers of identity theft, and how you need to protect yourself from it. You’re aware that you need to keep your credit card, bank statements, and other sensitive information safe. But what about your higher identity? We’re all spiritual beings having a human experience. Our divine self lives within us and uses us as vehicles to express itself. When we aren’t true to who we really are, and we let our egos tell us that we need to live up to someone else’s standards, we’re committing the biggest identity theft from ourselves.
“When we shift our perspective, we experience the same events and circumstances differently, and they don’t affect us in the same way.” – Jim Phillips (36:31 – 36:40)
When you try to live your life according to other’s expectations, your ego tells you that you’re not enough, that you will always need to improve. While self-improvement can be a beneficial practice, it needs to be approached from the right perspective. When you recognize that you’re an expression of the divine, you’ll realize that you are already perfect. There’s a reason why you’re here on earth, and you already have everything you need to fulfill your destiny. From this perspective, self-improvement becomes a process of self-discovery. Instead of trying to be better, your focus will shift on letting the divine replace the ego.
The keys to living from your higher self.
Here are a few of the critical elements to help you let go of your ego, and surrender to the divine aspect of yourself.
Practice non-judgment. Non-judgement is one of the most powerful tools you have at your disposal. When you judge something, you’re looking at it through the lens of what you think is right, and you’re not looking at it as it is. When you let go of judgment, you experience the world, other people, and most importantly, yourself, through the lens of love and compassion.
Live the life imagined. You’ve likely heard of the Law of Attraction, which states that what you’re experiencing is a representation of your most prominent thoughts and beliefs. What you believe determines your vibrational energy, and it attracts the results in your life accordingly. Take some time to asses your expectations, and where you got them. You might find that some of your beliefs were passed on to you by others and that they might be holding you back.
“Each day, I ask what is required of me to allow the I am that I AM to experience and express itself through me, and as me.” – Jim Phillips (40:29 – 40:43)
Practice self-awareness. Each day, make an effort to live in the present moment. Everything only exists in the now, and you can learn a great deal by paying attention to how you respond to certain events. Take note of your feelings and reactions within the body. While you can’t change the circumstances, you can change your perspective and how you respond to them.
Take time each day to assess what are some things that you can do to allow your divine self to better express itself through you. You might get the answer in ways that seem strange to you. It’s important not to dismiss them, and to act on them. When you allow that truth to sink in, you’ll recognize your real power, and you’ll see that you already have access to all the answers that you need.
