Have you ever asked yourself these questions? If someone asked you these questions, what would you say? What comes to mind when I pose these question to you?
“Who Am I?” is an age old question that may seem simple on the surface. When I was first asked to ponder this question, I was working with a shamanic healer to get through a dark period in my life. He asked me to keep asking it over and over. He said to think of it as a meditation. The results were very interesting.
At first, the answers were what you might expect. I’m a woman. I’m a mother. I’m a data scientist. I’m a spiritual seeker. And on and on.
Eventually, my mind started to get really curious. I began to wonder about who I am on a soul level. What is my purpose? Why was I born? Do I cease to exist when I die? Am I here for a reason? What if I fail to do what I came here to do? I started feeling anxious, like I was supposed to know something and I didn’t have a clue....
