Who Are You?

Updated: Oct 16, 2020

When confronted with this question, we tend to respond with a name, profession, degree, marital status, parental status, or maybe even a favorite hobby. When we strip all these titles and achievements away, what's left? Who are we at the core of our beings? There's a scene in Netflix's Hollywood where Richard talks about slowly losing his identity due to his fear of being rejected as a gay man in Hollywood. It was about playing the part to be accepted until he was lost. We've all done this at some point to attain something we want in life. We sacrificed who we really are. Sometimes these actions feel small and harmless, such as taking a job or a project we don't love as a "stepping stone," putting off exercise for now while life is too busy, missing a child's recital for a work event, or skipping a favorite concert to go to a distant relative's birthday party we aren't interested in attending. The small decisions become bigger decisions. We get so used to compromising that we eventually forget what we really want, why we're here, and what brings us meaning.

Knowing who we are is remembering who we are. It's who we are when we're not doing what we think we're supposed to be doing. When we're letting our hearts guide us. Each time we make a decision to act in our greatest good, we honor our divinity and become more in tune with our highest, most magickal selves.

Let's ask again. Who are you? Still unsure? Here's an exercise to help you retrieve the missing pieces.
