Know Thyself

Know Thyself

We embark on this life, undertaking a sacred journey.


We separate from God, from Source, a sprinkle of stardust. We travel to this earthly life and are born with a spark of the divine deep within our souls.


As time passes, we grow further and further distant from that spark. It gets buried under mountains of conditioning and limiting beliefs, below societal expectations and false truths. We take on scripts and stories that conceal our true being, and before long we find ourselves lost and numb, with a faint feeling that there’s really more to this…we just can’t quite figure out how to get back to what’s missing.


The gaping hole in our heart — we tell ourselves that it’s from all the times we were wronged, every time we were hurt or let down or disappointed or destroyed.


The real source of that vague homesickness? Our disconnect from Home, from that beautiful, perfectly unique soul we were meant to be. We aren’t living our truth. We’ve tarnished that spark, and we long to return to it.


This begins our journey Home.


The first leg of this adventure is one of self-discovery. Let’s clear the layers of shit away and get back to that divine spark. Really discover who we are and what we are here to achieve.


The most incredible treasure map has been drawn for us, by the very hand of God. It’s up to us to follow the clues — choosing which stops to make along the way. For my own understanding of who I am at a soul level, I’ve chosen to fill my treasure chest with all the pieces that resonate with my wild, inquisitive nature. It’s filled to the brim with my findings as I’ve played in the realm of archetypes, animal totems, name analysis, personality assessments, strengths finding, intuitive art, spirit guides, oracle cards, alchemy, and more.


Individually, each of these pieces is a fun inkling into my being. But when I put all the clues together, piece together that mystical puzzle, I see something so much bigger.


I get a deep, intuitive knowing of who I am. I know my purpose, I know how I am meant to serve, I know what I am here to do. I can see all of me…what makes me feel full, what drains me, what triggers me, or what lights me up. I know my own challenges and how to turn them into stepping stones. I know my superpowers.


When I know my soul, I know I am enough.


And that, dear heart, is the very key to living a life free of doubt, free from worry.



PS. Want to play in self-discovery? Let’s explore the wild terrain of your treasure map! Tear away the untruths and dive deep into your authentic core. Let’s see what’s waiting for you there.
