Before you can attract what you really want in life, you must first go inward and connect to the love within yourself. It begins with knowing that you ARE love. Our true nature, also known as Source, Truth, Consciousness, Soul, or Essence, is within everyone, but sometimes our connection to it gets clouded over by insecurity, doubt, fear, and anger. In other words - our ego.
Our ego seeks fulfillment from the material world, and as a young child we all develop an ego. That is what begins the process of “forgetting” our true nature. Depending on our culture, circumstance, environment, and family, some of us lose touch more than others.
The good news is Source, God, Spirit, Love – whatever you choose to call it – is the essence of love within you. All we have to do is remember. How do we do this? We listen to our inner voice. Beneath your doubts, insecurities and fears, this voice of truth is there, just waiting to shine through.
The ego is the part of you that doesn't know how incredible you are. It's the part that doubts your worth, believes you have to prove yourself, and secretly wonders if you're actually lovable. The ego looks for fulfillment from the outside-in ("When I get _____, then I'll feel _____."). Sound familiar?
Your Soul, on the other hand, knows better. It understands that you're inherently lovable. In fact, it knows that you ARE LOVE. You are fullness. You are abundance. You are beauty. You are empowered. You are everything and more.
Most of us know this is true if we really investigate, but the problem is that most of the time we are caught in the dialog of our minds that tells us we are small, powerless, insignificant, and limited. When we live through the viewpoint of the ego, life seems difficult, and we feel discouraged, unsatisfied, and unhappy.
We spend a lot of time trying to find answers out in the material world. We continually seek for what we think will fulfill us, and perpetually feel unfulfilled.
This is the first and most important step to becoming the person you want to be - learning to identify with your Soul, the most attractive energy there is.
